With the plethora of Tier VII premium vessels available now or in the past, which stands out as your favorite?

Here is my short-list of Tier VII premiums:

- Błyskawica: solid gunboat platform with decent torpedos and concealment

- Atltanta: I had good success with this flame-thrower especially burning down BBs and taking out DDs

- Belfast: lots of options for firepower (HE/AP) and equipment (Radar/Hydro)

- Southern Dragon: all-around good firepower and AA protection as with all of the Myoko variants, but I like the dragon skin it comes with

- Scharnhorst: my surprise go-to ship for ranked season 6, secondaries were able to fend off DDs and main batteries were effective with cruisers and BBs

What's your short-list or top choice for Tier VII premium vessels?

Leningrad: Fast with strong guns. Great to harass battleships from a distance

Atlamta: Fun because of the sheer number of shells in the air at one time.

Nelson: Love the heal and the turret layout.

Scharnhorst and Hood: Scharnhorst is all around soild and Hood is a monster if played right.

Otherwise Kaga is a joy to play with a huge hanger capacity.

ARP Nachi: solid ship like all Myokous, she's just my favorite of the Myokous

currently, Kaga (no other ship does such consistent damage in as satisfying a manner) and Belfast (this one also piles on the pain, from the start to the finish of a battle).

But I have a soft spot for Atlanta, (versatile, though it requires greater attention and daring to do well in) and every now and again; Hood (because nothing says Battlecruiser quite as well as a speeding flanking Hood).

Scharnhorst: Can't go wrong with a ship that can literally do everything.

Hood: Cause is a good solid battleship 

Believe it or not Ashitaka: I like it, Maybe the thrill of never seeing another one on the enemy team contributes to my fondness of it :D

I honestly prefer the HMS Nelson or HMS Belfast depending on the days mood.

Haven't played mine in a while... but Scharny hands down.

 

 

I like the Hood too though :Smile_hiding:

Blys is a good boat that would serve as a model for the Tribals.

Belfast - You got all the tools needed. Smoke, radar, hydro, HE and very good dpm for the tier. She's weathered the game rule changes pretty well. Why else is WG offering to buy her back before 0.6.12?

I don't have a tier 7 premium ship. So if you're only looking for tier 7 ships to be listed, I am not able to fulfill that requirement. If you don't mind me listing off the premiums I do have, then I shall share them. But I'll wait for approval of the post, before actually sharing them.

Of the premium ships I have, there are 3 that I regularly play:

Scharnhorst - blap, blap, blap

Graf Spee - blap, blap

and Missouri - Cha Ching!

The Atlanta wins for me.  It was the first premium ship that someone bought for me when I was still a noob.  I also ended up having probably my best game ever in it with 6 kills and over 100k damage.

The Scharnhorst does look super cool in the ice camo though :Smile_glasses:

Duke of York and Nelson are my current favorites, followed by Scharnhorst and Sims. Belfast would be on my list if I didn’t feel so dirty playing the ship.

Belfast, Leningrad, Scharnhorst.  In that order.  Even though they aren't very good, I also have soft spots for Hood and Indianapolis.

I'm in the same boat.  Favorite has to be Texas because .. well .. Texas.  Anshan's in my good graces, too.

 

So when do we get a $10 T7 Premium sale?  Hm?  Hm?

Kutuzov. Because it's a fire hose and it actually has good AP at close range.

I suspect my favorite T7 premium would be Tone, if WG knew what they wanted to do with her and she wasn't in testing limbo. >.>

T7 Premium's I have (no set order just how they come up )...

  1. Ashitaka - Just got it a short time ago. No great but not even close to being as bad as I have heard about it and I am not a big IJN BB guy. It's "ok".
  2. Sims - I don't play DD except for very rare occasions so never played it. Has sat in port untouched since I got it in a Santa crate.
  3. Atlanta - LOVE IT! T7 mini Minotaur with HE. Tied for most liked with Hood.
  4. Indianapolis - Pensacola with Radar. It's "ok".
  5. Leningrad - see Sims at #2.
  6. Scharnhorst - it's ok. I don't LOVE IT the way most do but it is decent and I play it a lot. 
  7. Belfast - can not click with this one even though I love BRN CL's. Not a big fan. I know it's me but just don't do well in it and seldom play it as a result. I don't get the OP claims??? Fiji is 100X's the ship (IMHO).
  8.  Hood - LOVE IT! My favorite of them tied with Atlanta (ie; T7 Premiums). 1st Premium ship in WOWS for me outside some low tiers we were given or I won.
  9. Blyskawica - see Sims at #2.
