I happened to see this while searching for something and thought it was pretty funny:

 

The Question was, Why are Japanese Battleships so loved in WoWs?

Same as his. Yamato

 

Also, early on the USN BBs were worse, and that opinion still persists.

 

Personally, I'm a USN BB guy, but national bias may factor in there.

EDIT: Actually, I think the question is misleading. It suggests that we like IJN BBs more than any other nation's BBs or that we don't like other nation's BBs, which I don't think is true. BB people like all the battleships because... well, they're freaking battleships!

I wouldn't say that they're great looking but that's why I like them because there kind of weird looking battleships

Sexy, historically there were pretty solid, ingame they're generally well-rounded and can do most of everything you need them to.

This, aside from the Kawachi and Myogi from T5 up all IJN BBs are solid ships that produce great results for the effort put in.

Kawachi is pretty good in the right hands, you can sneak right up to the enemy and scream BANZAI into his face before he realizes you're there

Gunnery.

For BBs(and cruisers), the #1 quality I look for is firepower and the quality of the guns - it easily trumps armor, speed, torps, etc. If I have reliable and lethal guns I know I will be able to have a positive impact on the match.

IJN BBs in general have excellent guns!

They have the best ship.

 

Also the way the Japanese pleaded and compromised to keep some of their best girls from becoming victims of the treaties is almost romantic.

Also, we def gernally dont like IJN BBs more than other lines... KM BBs and UK BBs currently get the favorite role. Bismarck especially. 

 

Yamato is a fan favorite, but game pwoer creep hasn't been very kind to the one True and only T10 BB. And Musashi coming in at T9 is a disgrace lol

Mutsu (lie, cheated and stole to do it, she wasn't complete enough to be retained under the Washington treaty, but they lied, said she was complete, and kept her anyway)

Hiei (was converted to a training ship to avoid scrapping under the London naval treaty, was rearmed when the Japanese gave the treaty the finger)

Mikasa (was embedded in concrete  so they didn't have to scrap her under the Washington treaty, and she's still there)

Because lolpen anything at Tier 10?

 

In all seriousness; Never seemed to have as much trouble with Kawachi and Myogi as everyone claims; but then I didn't bother with them until after I had all the ARP Kongos anyway, so it was easy to just install all the upgrades using my fxp reserves.

 

Apparently I can shoot, but not aim worth a flip; never seem to get the great damage claimed by Kongo users; Fuso is just Fuso; a T6 IJN version of the T4 Wyoming; I like both.

 

Don't have anything higer than Fuso, and no plans to get such anytime soon.

Oh. I thought that meant the end of WW2

 

Japan had no navy at the end of WW2, most of her ships were either sunk or heavily damaged. The only BB to survive was Nagato and then we nuked her for fun.
