I started this thread because after 40 battles in the Monarch, I realized what it was missing and why I despise this ship. You can't punish people who make stupid mistakes. If a BB shows you their broadside, you can't punish them with AP because it is godawful. The fire chance is so low that you cant set fires with every good salvo. If you force your target to use their damage control, it may be a minute until you get another fire. Or it might not happen until they have their consumable back up. I also found the accuracy to be so awful that I couldn't consistently punish cruisers and DDs. The Monarch is a spineless ship that doesn't pose a threat to any particular class and can't capitalize on good opportunities. The Alabama and North Carolina are two ships that I am particularly effective with, and the reason for this is their ability to be opportunistic and punish people heavily for their mistakes. The Des Moines is my most played ship, and it is effective because it can counter any ship class in the game if played properly. What characteristics make a ship effective? Can a ship be effective without being particularly threatening to a specific class?

I like ships that can if played correctly have the most impact on the game. If I think my team is making a mistake and the ship I am in can fix it then I like it. If I feel like I am completely at the mercy of the team then I like it less.

Having said that I have 210 ships in port so......

You're a hoarder.... :Smile_teethhappy:

But I like maneuverability and decent guns.  Bonus if you don't have to switch between AP & HE all the time.

I prefer the term prepper. 

Interesting comment about the Ammo For me it is a bonus if the AP and HE are both viable.

I like ships that are tough but don’t trade toughness for firepower. Also I like ships that reward you for smart usage of ammo. The German cruiser line is in my opinion a great example of this.

If either are viable, you're not forced to switch all the time.  But yeah.  It's why I rarely play the Duca D'Aosta.  Its HE is almost useless.  Not much of a reason to use HE.

It's very difficult for me not to have fun playing the Leningrad or Kiev.

I like ships that can take a beating and hurt other ships back(so basically I like dreadnoughts) My favorite ship is the Arizona for this reason. I take a fire fighting build for it and I love it until I face a tier VIII CV

My favorite ships in this game are my Battleships.

Most damage I have ever done: Battleships (Großer Kurfürst [144,439])

Only Krakens I have are in a Battleship: (Scharnhorst [2])

Now, my ONE Solo Warrior is in a Mikhail Kutuzov (which was a heck of a game too [141,641]), but generally I am a Battleship person.  The only thing I don't really get all that much are carriers.  Though, I am learning.

 

Missouri, Alabama, Großer Kurfürst, Bismarck, Tirpitz, Scharnhorst, Arizona, Warspite, Nelson, Kii, October Revolution, Kongo, Giulio Cesare...  MAN I loves me my Battleships!  And I have SO MANY MORE!

Well, sometimes they do. If you're really good, they'll float a little longer.

The NC, Colorado, and Warspite my three favourite ships and my three statistically best, have powerful, relatively accurate guns that reward proper aim and mistakes by the enemy team. When angled, they are tough as nails, allowing you to pump shots into anyone who dares cross you. The first two's secondaries aren't awful, but definitely not great, though the Warspite has very strong secondaries. Their AA, on the other hand, is god-tier, while oppositely the Warspite's AA is rather weak. As for DDs, the Blyskawica's guns and speed make her my girl.
