Initially. I felt that the Asashio was the single worst ship for ranked play. I wish to recant: Asashio is not the single worst. That distiction belongs to Lexington. Asashio is the worst non-cv ship, but the overall worst remains the Lex. 

 

Dude, before and after the USN CV Revamp, Lexington was always the worst Tier VIII CV in the game.  By far.  It was a given how badly Lexington was going to stink this season in Ranked, because the past, most recent Ranked Season was also Tier VIII and she was THE WORST SHIP POSSIBLE in Tier VIII Ranked!  That season I was curious because she was the first Revamped US Carrier to go through ranked.  And she failed miserably.

 

I kept a snapshot of Warships Today when last Ranked was ending.  Her it is.  Lexi was anything but Sexy.

Enterprise and ever-reliable Shokaku are leagues better Carriers.

 

When this Ranked VIII / X Season ends, I am going to be very curious to see how it shakes out with the Tier X ships in general, especially the CVs.  I also want to see IX Ranked as it's never happened before, and Taiho & Essex need to square off.

You sure that you're not Glorious or Courageous?  :Smile_hiding:

 

  Reveal hidden contents

For those that don't get it, that's a pun based on the names of the Royal Navy's Courageous class battlecruiser names, i.e. Courageous, Furious, and Glorious.

 

 

Now you're just being Spiteful

But truly, from OP's point of view this must all be just one big Black Joke, and I do understand why he feels the need to be such a Griper. Nobody likes to be on the receiving end of the Spanker every time.

Thank Cthulhu for that, too: the topic started off about as funny as a Bat getting smashed with a Battleaxe.

It's like a delicate Flower right now, just starting to bloom. We must protect it, and let it grow!

Indeed, it's a beautiful Rose.  But watch out for the Thorns.

Better to bleed while smelling a rose than to get a big sniff of Asbestos...

It's rather Daring to compare a Dainty flower to that of cancerous dust.  Better compare it to a beautiful Diamond.  After all, Shakespeare said "That which we call a rose. By any other name would smell as sweet.”

I feel like this thread has become a bit of an echo chamber. I don't see it having a Long Life.

Is that an Echo I hear?  Would that be such a Terrible thing?

Xianyang is the worst T8 DD to bring.

12s radar is useless, it has only 4 guns and it can't torp DDs out of their smoke.
