Russian Bias

 

Made a mistake with Minsk, since I thought Leningrad was still on the tech tree.  Guess not :(

 

Also I couldn't bring myself to rename Moskva, sue me.

Yes I actually sold the Yorck to display the new name clearly, I hate it that much.

 

Death Star is a reference to War Thunder where bombers with really good defensive gunners are basically untouchable or you take a lot of damage trying to take them down.

 

Tirpitz is "Death Star with Torpedoes"

Duh Americans

 

Independence is "Has Actual Engine"

Hosho is "Former Seal-Clubber"

 

Myogi is "Stormtrooper Accuracy"

 

Kuma is "Another Floating Citadel"

Dunkerque is "Just Got Dunked On."

That's great. But what about Belfast? Just because she's gone doesn't mean she doesn't deserve a nickname!

But Udaloi does have DP guns? I'm not quite sure I grasp that one.

The joke is that her 130mm/55 B-2-U didn't have DP capability until after the split, despite the guns always being on the ship.  They boosted basically everything one could upgrade with a gun swap when they were Udaloi's gun upgrade, but now most of those advantages have disappeared and they get DP capability instead.

lol for St Louis, (best T3 BB,) Wickes is actually my greatest killer; (most kills on the gamesite Randoms stats page,) and I haven't played it in forever... Wyoming is my 'Ole' Reliable,' and I never have much trouble hitting things; same with New Mexico; Colorado is my only battleship with a WR over 60%; Mahan is the only destroyer I've ever been successful with in ranked; and Sea Mines is a totally despised object of derision I've never been able to make work...

Mutsuki my highest WR IJN destroyer, at 58% for both flavors, (T6 and T5...) Poi is sad; Poi was played for just 5 randoms and 5 co-ops then sold... Gunbote is happy! Gunbote was owner of the first 19 point captain I earned through xp in the game, (as oppsed to buying one with fxp or exp.)

It seems that for the OP, DQ is donuts; for me it is Ice Cream... Like Buddy Bars or Chocolate Dipped Cones...

Best Waifu is; only battleship I've been able to use successfully in ranked; New Mexico is a 'sorta' kinda okay,' but not as much so as Waifu.

 

Farmnaught hasn't seemed to be as bad for me as many say it is; maybe all that practice with DQ...

Look at that sucker in binoc view sometimes and you can hardly see it! Can just about go into stealth just by hiding in a wave trough!

Conversely, I've always wondered been sort of fascinated with the bizarrely high freeboard on all the French cruisers, have you looked at the slab sides on those things?

Actually I think Udaloi has DP guns, the Trashkan doesn't however.

See above comment.

Upon reflection, I suggest that the Tirpitz should be "Fjord Queen."

 Nah, that's low-hanging fruit.  Same reason why I didn't call the Gneisenau "Stormtrooper" despite having derpy dispersion.

I have to say, you have a way with names. A lot of those cracked me up because they are so true. Nice to see I'm not the only one that associates the German battleships with the Galatic Empire. I often have 'The Imperial Suite' from Rouge One going while I play them. I have an alternate name for Izumo, though; 'Nelson with better guns'. It is pretty much Nelson with a backwards turret #3 and far better guns, in terms of design.
