If you could return 1 premium ship for X amount of doubloons (even if that were half the purchase price) which ship would you return?

Also, what would you do with said doubloons? Buy a different premium?

 

As for myself, I've got a number or premium ships from last years Santa crates that I'm not keen on. My choice would be between returning the Indianapolis, Marblehead, or maybe Molotov...

Doubloons would be used to purchase some Kaga sky cancer. :Smile_playing:

Saipan. I don't ever play it outside of co-op. And really the only reason why I purchased it in the first place was because there was a good chance, at the time, that Saipan was going to be the only premium CV. I'd likely get some permanent camo's, or save for them, with the doubloons.

Marblehead.  Murmansk (or even an upgraded Omaha) does everything better.

Gallant-the key for me is maximizing the use of multiple ships per captain...and I just don' like the ship.

Indianapolis or Marblehead - both were santa crate ships - both are citidel magnets and not very good in their tiers - not sure if either will be buffed in to new American cruiser split, would trade for Alabama or Hood I guess

Really? I think the Marblehead is awesome. Over 60% w/r while Murmansk is mid 50ish,,,,, I think it is kinda OP,,, But I have to admit I use Alien Tec to guide my shells,,,,,,,

Atlanta.  It came in a Santa Crate and I am not even remotely interested in playing it.  Maybe if they fixed the rainbow firing arcs, I would consider it, but assuming that never happens, in my port it will sit.

Blyskawica. The stealth fire nerf really hit her hard, and the smoke nerf to a lesser extent. She's always spotted first when up against T8-9 DDs. Anything she does now, Leningrad can do better. Was really hoping I could play her in the Dunkirk scenario but that was another letdown. Considering the indirect nerfs to Blys I'm a bit surprised WG hasn't offered to refund her. I'll save the doubloons for either Gallant or Vampire if they ever appear in the tech tree.

Murmask came in crate...don't play it, so that is a no brainer. One I will take heat for: Warspite... Yeah I know...but I just do better in other BBs. I not gonna lie, I'm saving for Musashi.... would just use the gold for XP. She is really the only thing on the radar that I want..she may be to much $$$ for a lowborn knight like me, but gotta have goals I guess.

Already returned Kutozov. But if I could return some more?

 

Texas(redundant), Warspite(enjoy the hood way more), Ishizuchi(Kii is so much better), Lo Yang(Anshan is more my speed), Yubari(worthless to me).

 

What would I get? Convert enough free XP for Mushashi. Then I have no need for Yamato and can stop my grind at Amagi.

Indianapolis, just cannot get thing to work. I get blapped so often, there never seems to be an angle where I am not showing too much skirt to some BB.

Story of most American cruisers from my experiences.  You learn to have your head on a swivel.

Yup. I won both in Santa Crates and was not impressed with them. I tried them many times (and died many times) and their survivability sucketh most heinously. I have better survivability with Atlanta! It's a shame about Indy, because the ship has great maneuverability and guns. (The radar is sweet too!)

hmmm tough call.... either belfast or kutuzov 

I have Kutuzov and had Belfast. (Get-sunk-fast to me) I'm considering selling off Kutu for the same reason I dumped Belfast; I just cant do very well with her.

I sold back emden, Mika’sa, blyskawikazika very shortly after getting them. No gold incentive needed. They sucked bilge water.

 

I also sold back ishigishi, Texas and Indy because , although I really liked them, I really needed the credits to buy Minotaur while on sale. Sort of regret the decision because I was much better in both the Ishi and the Indy and rarely play the Minotaur. Not a potato friendly boat, lol.

 

on the other hand and knowing what I know now I would, if didn’t already have them in port, gladly pay for warspite, Atlanta, tirpitz, Belfast, Missouri, nicholai and Molotov.

 

i hope one day to somehow add Alabama, kutuzov and gremmy to my fleet.

With the exception of low tier premiums I'd say my Saipan.  It was really powerful when it came out, but has been power creeped by the Enterprise/Kaga, and being up-tiered most of the time.

I have purchased Tirpitz and Kaga, love them both. I received the French T6 cruiser in a supercontainer but I dont play it much as Ive not got a good grasp on staying alive long enough in a cruiser for it to be a decent credit farmer.

Mutsu.  Its the only premium I regret buying.

 

I *did* sell Kutuzov (got for free).  Will use that to pay for Missouri.  Would also sell Indy, Blys, and some others that I got for free and don't play.
