Hood, its not even a competition. Hood is faster and seems to hit harder. DOY has hydro, but gives up too much to be competitive. On the other hand Hood does not get the frosty the snow ship cammoflage.

Love my Hood. Dont have the Duke as I already have both Warspite and Nelson so dont need another T7 Brit Premium BB.  Besides, I also have the KGV.

I'd have to have them in my hands to call, what I hear of DoY isn't pretty, which falls in line with Mouses review, Hood I know I hate when I have DB's, but honestly, I rarely see the ship played and well, much as I see the players at times do well, it seems the ship itself may not be the greatest. But again, haven't played it and honestly, I still feel they tiered it higher than they should have. Nelson is a blast though.

If people are saying Hood's better than makes me worried for DoY!

Nelson is >> Hood, so...

I have no problems with Hood, but have never been able to make Nelson work properly. I hear DoY is not quite as good as KGV, but then as KGV is stupidly OP, DoY can't be too bad.

Whatever, listen to your heart and play what you will enjoy the most.

Don't have a Hood but DOY is a clone of a very beloved ship that's been nerfed in the universally useful stat of ROF, but is relatively elite for hunting CV's and DD's, tasks I'd think most in the BB community don't really see as priority's. From everything I've heard of Hood both historically and in game she has trouble facing those higher tier BB's, while DOY has impressed me with how well she handles against BB's, even high ranking ones.

While Hood is not an especially great ship, she still has a purpose (using her speed to flank). Duke of York, on the other hand, is just a gimped KGV with worse DPM for no good reason. So between the two, go Hood.

Where is HMS Nelson?

Indeed.

 

She is the statistical leader for Tier VII BBs.  She's pretty wonky in her protection scheme though.  But man, that MEGA HEAL lets her come back hardcore.

 

For Tier VII, Tech Tree KGV and FreeXP Nelson would answer all one's Tier VII RN BB needs.

I have both the Hood and the DoY and while I think the DoY is very highly underrated, the Hood is better. 

The issue with DoY is the KGV.  KGV is hands down better than the DoY.  Significantly faster reload, one more heal and a better consumable in the Spotter Plane make KGV the clear victor and KGV over shadows the DoY because of this.  However if you throw KGV out the window and look at the DoY without comparing it to the KGV, the DoY, stat-wise, is holding its own with the Scharnhorst.  In fact compared to all 9 Tier 7 BBs currently in the game, it ranks between 3rd and 5th.  KGV is near the top in all categories though.

However, that being said while I have had some excellent matches in my DoY, the Hood just stands out to me.  I haven't played it much but 4 matches in I am averaging 85k damage (which will come down quite a bit when I get more matches in) and have already had my first Kraken with her.   DoY with 15 battle is only averaging 66k damage for me comparatively.

As far as Nelson, well I haven't bought her yet but I think I am going to take the plunge tonight.  From what I have seen facing her though, I have to say I am impressed.  I think if you can figure out her play style, she will be a monster

I don't have the Tech Tree Tier 7, King George V.

I have done well in all three of the Tier 7 RN BB premium ships.

I've only just started with the Duke of York at 5 Random battles.  Other than ZuihoDuke of York has my best average damage and my best average XP.  This might be due to it also having an 80% winrate (likely due to the limited battles so far).

I have 28 Random battles in Nelson. This ship has one of my best winrates for any ship.  (The only ships with a higher winrate have fewer Random battles.)  Nelson is my #3 average damage ship just ahead of North Carolina.

I have 59 Random battles in Hood.  The only ships I have more battles in are USN BBs led by the Missouri.  I actually have better survival in Hood than the other RN BBs.  It is a solid performer in XP and damage.

If Duke of York is just a nerfed King George V, I'm going to enjoy the Tier 7 grind when I get there.  (Just 9K to go on Queen Elizabeth.)

Each of the three premiums fits differently into the mix.  All are good enough on their own.

If I had to pick just one, I would pick Nelson for a reason not yet mentioned.  It seems to produce better credit earnings than the rest.  They do well, but I feel that Nelson does better.

nelson is the best BB T7,

hood is weak

duke of york is version nerf of king george v

While I'd agree Nelson is the best and you already know what I think about DOY, Hood is a really good BB. She's got a superior HP pool and speed and while her HP isn't as OP as the other three T7 UK BB's, her AP is pretty good.
