EDIT: Oh wait, it says Torps.

3500 battles in one ship? Am I reading that right?

if you can't break 60% WR after 3500matches in a given ship, definitely Sell it and try another ship :cap_yes:

So is this just an excuse to show how much you have played a single ship?

not quite.

 

I am actually really thinking of selling it, and obviously it has to be my favorite ship, or at least has been. But since 6.3.0, the current MM that gets you to play 2/3 or 3/4 games at T10, the profusion of radars and extended Hydro, it has lost a lot of its fun factor tbh

She's got a few miles left on her.

But given that T8 = T10, I'd say it's time to give the Fletcher some love....

I'd rather be in a Benson than a Fletch any day

Well I still have the KV2 in my garage in WOT and I'm never going to sell that thing, it's too much fun. :Smile_teethhappy:

Then again, if you're not having much fun with it then it's entirely up to you if you wanna sell it. Do you need the space for a new boat? If not, just ask yourself, 'do you need the credits'? If you answered no to both of those, then honestly I would personally just keep the boat. If you did enjoy playing it, maybe you'll enjoy playing it again at some point. :Smile_Default: You already have the T10 unlocked, so I can't see why you'd wanna sell it if not for space.

If a shift in MM causes you to want to sell a ship, it was never really the ship you loved but the enemies you could club with it.

Benson, seal clubber ?

As a rule, I no longer sell ships unless I need the port slot.  If I do need the port slot, I begin by selling the lowest tier ship and working my way back up.  This is because it's the cheapest to buy back as opposed to rebuying a tier 8/9 ship...

May want to use it if Ranked is tier 8.  Unless you need the silver or port slot, she could take a break as a port queen.  Her crew probably could use the rest and the shipyard may want to check her out after the long deployment; that is a lot of battles.

I think I fought against you in my Fletcher about a week ago. You played really well and did more damage to me than I did to you.

Fletcher can do everything Benson can do but better - it's a straight upgrade. You don't like it?

I love Benson.  There is just something about that ship that not even Fletcher has been able to replace.  So, I still have her.  I haven't played THIRTY-FIVE freakin' HUNDRED games in her, though.  Dayum, son. :cap_wander_2:

that is indeed a very good point

that is also a very good point. This actually skipped my mind. Just wondering if the German T8 is not better now though. Thanks though.

I did not do too well when I had the Fletch because I had a new captain, 0 point and stock hull. But I found that the Fletch was as clumsy as the gearing. I always fancy my chances against a Fletcher because of the agility of the Benson. That's really what I like about that ship. But, I might try the Fletch again, good point.

You've obviously been doing pretty damn good with Benson, why sell her? Keep her. if you sell her you might regret it.

The upgraded Fletcher is definitely not a foe to take lightly.  Built right it can get just over 20k hp.  fast stealthy torps, great AA and it is far more maneuverable than the gearing IMO.
