    Premium Ship Review: Krasny Krym

    A Russian ship that's not OP... I'm so confused. Do you think there's a chance she gets preferred MM that keeps her from getting up-tiered into T7 matches?

    Premium Ship Review: Molotov

    I think I saw you in one of those early derpy games in this. Having bought this I love it, I expected the T6 Kirov with slightly better guns. Instead I got a fragile beast than can spit damage. She is a glass cannon that could use a bit more survivability, but her guns are amazing and outperform any cruiser guns I've played below T8. Also, her ROF is better than the USN and IJN CAs she faces, her AP damage is a hair lower, but it's penetration is excellent, and her HE is excellent for both ant-DD work and burning BBs from max range.

    Premium Ship Review: Ishizuchi (2.0)

    The Ishizuchi is designed to fight in a specific way, she's unconventional, your suggestions are just "make her better and more normal. Her AP is meh, but her HE is awesome, she's maneuverable, but lightly armored, her range and AA are poor, but her turret traverse is nice and her secondaries are capable. You say yourself she's a BC, she's not supposed to compete with a BB 1 v 1.

    Premium Ship Review: Ishizuchi (2.0)

    I've always had fun with my Ishizuchi, even if she wasn't a great ship by any measure. Now with the reload buff she is actually pretty good, especially when I run her with either my Izumo (soon to be Yammy!) or Zao captain. She operates best in a role that straddles the line between a battleship/battlecruiser and a heavy cruiser. In her I target cruisers or BBs that are distracted, pop DDs with HE, but don't actively hunt them, shimmy constantly and avoid showing broadside unless I absolutely have to. Her HE is excellent (and can even citadel some of the ships she comes across), she forces damage control on basically every volley, and her AP can deal excellent damage when she ends up in a close range brawl. When she operates as part of a fleet (so divisioning her is helpful, but remember this can ruin her preferred MM), her flaws don't stand out as much, and her strengths shine. Her ROF, her ability to incense and incapacitate, and her fire damage make her extremely useful in concert with cruisers and other BBs. By defaulting to HE in the Ishizuchi you are better protected against DDs also. Did this a few days ago: http://imgur.com/a/32b3j

    Premium Ship Review - ORP Blyskawica

    As a Blyska player I highly recommend it, it's amazing for grinding credits and its 8% stock fire rate is awesome. It plays like a VMF DD that can stealth fire. I've gotten 600k or so XP on mine and now have demo expert which makes it a Witherer machine and excellent ranked option. I was lucky enough to win mine for free (it wasn't on sale yet when I won it, otherwise I would have bought it) but it's definitely one of my favorite and most played ships.
