I got it for free from the campaign but I just hate it. The KGV is so much better and this thing just sits in my port gathering dust. If I sold it I would have enough for a good tier 8 at least, but I know selling premiums is usually a bad idea. I just hate this ship, but I’m worried that they might buff it one day so I sold it for no reason. I can’t decide, I hate the money grind in this game so much, but it’s a free premium. Should I just sell it or should I try to wait, as unbearable as it is?

DoY isn't that bad.  Good boat, IMO.  Not the best, but good.

Sell it if you want to, though.  Whatever makes you happy.

Don't do it! Think of what'll happen to her! Plus shes a free premium~ If you don't want her I'll give her a good home, kappa~

If you need the money, then sure. It's trash and there is no point in playing it if you have a higher tier premium, and already own a KGV. If not, then just keep it as a port ornament if nothing else.

Just play like 5 games in the Missouri.

I have the Missouri but I don’t have premium or tons of bonuses, it’s not that easy.

Keep the ships you enjoy, I like the DOY since I can drop in any British captain, I sold the KGV since I do not have a dedicated captain.  The new camo is nice, do not have to worry with camo on DOY, would if I kept KGV.

I think you can always buy back Premiums that you have sold, you have to submit a ticket and have the Credits available on your account is all. It may be (I am not sure) a 1 time thing though.

If at all possibly be I would hang on it since Wargaming could always buff the ship at some point or nerf everything else so badly that DOY actually becomes ok.

Let's see, DOY is a sister ship of KGV....

Guns are the same... check.

Speed, rudder turn radius the same... check.

Damcon, heal the same.... check.

DOY...sonar, no plane.

KGV...plane no sonar.

DOY better midrange AA...check.

..............

So I don't see that big of a difference between the two.

Before DOY came out, on my 3rd sortie mostly stock I fell in love with KGV and bought permanent cammo for her.

DOY is so much fun pushing with that sonar.

You Never sell a Premium ship. Never Never Never.

Do you know why you should never sell a Premium ship? Loot boxes.

If you perchance to get lucky and have a ship pop out of a Super Container or Santa Crate there is a chance you will get the ship you sold. Last Christmas I got a few Santa Crates and the first ship that popped out was the Emden, a ship I sold 3 months before. So I got back the ship I had sold, big deal right. Yes its a big deal because if the systems won't give you the same premium ship twice. It will try and give you one you don't have. If it can't find a premium ship you don't have then the system gives you the gold equivalent. 

So you never sell a Premium no matter how much it stinks because it insures you never get it again and if you do at least you'll get its gold price added to your account. 

So In closing Never Ever sell a Premium because if/when you get lucky enough to pull a ship from a box it most likely will be the one you threw away. 

Also if you don't like a ship don't play the ship, Nothing wrong with having port queens.

No. While i agree that DoY is a bad ship, its still a T7 Premium. Also things can change. DoY can be buffed and/or KGV nerfed. WoWs is always changing, a ship that is bad now can be good in the future.

Wait for the buffs down the road.  Good players are not going to waster their time trying to win with it in it's current state.  Eventually the bulk of the people playing it will be mediocre or worse, since it might be the only tier 7 premium they own.  Once they drag the expected values low enough, it should get a healthy buff to at least KGV levels.  That being said, I would still play my Nelson as a tier 7 UK BB over the buffed DoY.  Maybe some future missions will require it or offer a bonus for it.

tldr:  keep it, only good things can happen from this point out regarding it.....

Haha... no.

I mean except for rate of fire and both minimum horizontal and vertical dispersion, the guns are identical. And KGV has higher minimum dispersion values.

I think you keep answering your own question.

I have Duke of York, Hood, Nelson, and soon KGV.  That is a lot of T7 British battleships.  I sure as heck don't need DoY.

 

But I'm not selling her.

Never sell a premium.

All you get is a few million credits which you can earn by playing some games.

However, you might regret in the future:

They might buff the ship and she becomes strong.

You might get a premium ship from all kinds of crate and you get this ship again. You could have avoided that by just keeping her in your dock.

My only problem with it was it is too similar to KGV but I didn’t pay for it so I don’t care I am keeping it.
