So, obviously the Hiryu is my favorite ship. But my favorite thing about it is how much room there is to get better. 1,000 games in, and there's still plenty of ways to get better.  It has the IJN jack of all trades load out, and you could see games with heavy AA, or virtually no AA. Then there's dealing with Kagas and AS Saipans, or being in a multi-CV game and being paired with a strike Ranger, so you have to provide everyone air cover against all of those planes. It's the most fun thing in the game, imo.

I'd be interested in seeing your charts on that ship.  Have you always been awesome in it?  Or is it a progression?

More dedication than I apparently have... Playing a single ship that much would have driven me batty.

 

Congrats, on your WR and you dedication.

1K+ battles on the one CV? OK. Crazy. Crazy win rate (you braggard).

 I happen to like all my CVs that I have.

By the time I unlocked the Shokaku, I was pretty close to 60%. Then I struggled dealing with all the t10 AA in the Shokaku, so I went back to the Hiryu until I could handle North Carolinas in it,  so by the time I got to 200 games total games, I was at 63-64% and went back to the Shokaku. Then the last t7 ranked season got me to grind up a captain for the Hiryu, and that's when I started figuring out how to deal with more situations in it, and it became my favorite ship

Great job comet......very well done.

I would submit that the only class of ship in the game where skill can carry the battle solo is in a high tier CV, especially in an high tier IJN CV.  Has anyone seen any other captain in any other class of ship have a 75% win rate solo after a significant number of games?  And while I thought it wasn't fair to CV main players for WG to disallow CVs in clan battles,  it's pretty obvious looking at CV captain's like comet why they had to do it.....the CV captain skill differential is what would usually be key to who wins in a 7 vs. clan battle.

Again, congrats!
