Best 2017 premium (so far)?

During 2017, I did not buy many of the new premium ships ( just the Duca and De Grasse).   With Black Friday upon us, what 2017 premiums have you bought that are a "must have", and why?  Any to stay away from?  Need to decide if I want to spend some money now or wait until Shipsmas and Santa Crates

I certainly find it has a high "fun factor".

It's a toss up between the Nelson and the Gallant for me. Both of these ships are extremely unique & amazing for what they do.

1. Release new premium ships that are OP.

2. Wait until Sales slow down.

3. Nerf them.

4. Repeat.

 

Getting really tired of WG nerfing ships that I paid real money for.

OR is fun (and fun to shoot at). Though to be honest half of the reason I bought it was the daily crimson box rewards and the overall mission rewards. Still, I am quite happy with the purchase and look to keep playing it.

GC is probably a better buy based on its mobility alone but I kept my kongo to fill the 'speedy battleship' role for me so I didn't buy it.

Premium 2017 release?

 

Kaga - If you're a CV player, Kaga is hands down the best Premium CV release this year.  Graf Zeppelin was a disaster.  Enterprise has some wonky issues and Tier VIII CVs aren't the most comfortable CV tier to play at.  Kaga has issues against well played AS CVs but what you get is WORLD ENDING ALPHA STRIKE DAMAGE capability.  You are a nightmare to any ship out there if you can get a bomber strike in on ANYONE.  12 TB strike in a highly unconventional torpedo drop pattern that will drive even the DDs insane.  Kaga regularly nukes other CVs in one attack run, not even trying to rely on DOTS, just pure, raw, alpha strike damage.

Caesar - She's an awesome BB for Tier V but I put there's a caveat: As great as she is, she demands you know how to milk the survival of a flimsy ship.  Because she *IS* a flimsy ship.  Another + for Caesar is she is a Tier V, and at these tiers, Premium Ships are cheap.

 

Both ships require some savvy to play and excel it because they have some weaknesses, but for fun, power, or a combination of, they deserve consideration.

Cesare, she's fun as hell, quite fun. Higher CV's are her biggest issue, though. The AA can deal with similar tier aircraft if you give it time, but if a Saipan or Kaga takes an interest in you... well, ouch.

Sorry buddy, WG doesn't nerf premium ships. It's either a change in mechanics that affects everything, or it's in your head.

Gallant...

 

For me I've mannage to be terribly sucky to my usual average in everything else...

 

But Gallant... Even in Dynamo I did better in her than anything else, and afterwards in Randoms I still seem to do quite well in her.

Gallant forces you to really excel at singlefire torps, or be punished super hard. lol

Nelson is a good, fun runner up but the prize has to go to Cesare.

Except for the numerous times they have and covered it with an excuse, anyway. :fish_book:
