When you absolutely, positively need to win one for the team, which ship gets the call?

If I'm facing a situation where I need to win a battle or want to break a long losing streak, LoYang gets the call to bring home one for the team.

Also on alert-5 status are Mikhail Kutuzov, Missouri, and Amagi.

When a victory is on the line, who brings it home for you?

I've been stuck in between.  Players are too passive.  Maybe its because of the Worcester.  Its an Atlanta on crack.  UGH needs a nerfing lol.  Or maybe its just players doing the ultimate potato.  Who knows.  If it makes you feel any better I'm horrible at the game all together.

When you absolutely, positively need to win, you don't call on OP ships, you call on reliable divmates.

DDs, particularly either Russian or US DD.  Quality DD players were in short supply before The Great Radar'ing, even moreso now, so if you know what you're doing then you have an immense impact on the game.

Yeah, my cry for help is "pls come carry me" on discord.

According to my stats, Scharnhorst would be the one.  It's the one ship with at least 100 matches in with a 77% WR.  Go figure.

Clemson. That, or Gremmy. If I really want to be a jerk I roll a 19 point Bogatyr and watch the glaciers melt before me and my 130s.

Some of these are still under 100 battles but at least around 50-

  • Warspite - 62% WR
  • Arizona - 60% WR
  • Fujin - 59.57%
  • Graf Spee - 59.32
  • Scharn - 57.99 (219 battles)
  • Iwaki Alpha - 58.33
  • Belfast - 56.6
  • Edinburgh - 55.6
  • Iowa 55.41 (surprising to me last I checked a few months ago, albeit not long after I got her she was at 28%)
  • NC - 54.9
  • Mutsu - 54.5
  • Hiryu - 54%
  • Kaga - 53%
  • Zuiho - 53%
  • Independence - 52.8%
  • Tirpitz - 52%

Occasionally, Ark Beta and Dun as well. Kinda heavy on premiums but they are the ships I seem to do best in. With the very strange thing being that even in ships that are straight up duplicates (Kami R) and near duplicates (Bismarck) - I can't seem to duplicate these successes. I wish I could explain it, especially given Kami R is literally just a different name and paint scheme but it's sitting at around 45% while Fujin is near 60. Least with some of my under-performing CV's I know it's a matter of even though I own the skies, team just can't sink ships or sink the ones that give me an opening to actually attack.

Akizuki for me. My favorite ship in the game and I have great stats with her (69% randoms, 74% ranked).

Whichever ship I happen to be driving is the one. I do my best with what I have.

USS Arizona for me. Assuming I don't potato right into an enemy DD, she always brings home good, solid damage and even a kill or two, for some very satisfying wins.

For me, it is two ships - my HSF Admiral Graf Spee and my Prinz Eugen.
