Not rally an easy question but what ship do you find the most overrated in the game? Typically this will be one that's high on a lot of people's list but you have always had a Meh reaction too. Mine would be the Alabama.

Minotaur. It has the impression where you would just pop smoke and rain AP all over the place and farm easy damage. 

Soooo often I see them get outright deleted or get torped while sitting in smoke. Majority of those incidents early into the game.

Khab? Belfast, maybe? Asashio, perhaps? There are many ships that bring the salt, but few actually feel properly OP. OP in the right hands, perhaps, but not on average.

If I had to pick one, I suppose I'd decline and instead say radar ships in general. I just don't get the radar hate no matter what DD I use. If I get spotted, it's my fault completely.

Asashio.  It never really fit in with me.  Like wearing heels and a sundress in a blizzard, it always felt as if I was bringing the wrong gear for the situation. The long-lance torps were pretty much useless most of the time, since I mostly went up against CAs and other DDs whenever I took it out for a spin.

So, it sits in port now with all the mods stripped out, and with a placeholder captain in the chair. I can't even be bothered to take it to randoms just troll people with.

Missouri. Some people swear upon it‘s power, and how stupidly strong it‘s supposed to be. But I just never clicked with her. And then people say that they prefer Missouri over Musashi, and I feel completely the other way around, Musashi is imo so much better.

Not sure if any are actually overrated, just some have well-deserved reputations of being very effective in the right hands. So, sometimes a true potato (like myself) gets one that they can't make work and be all like "wth ???! They said this was the Master Blaster!"

Take the Des Moines, for example. Arguably the best gun cruiser in the game, and I'm a cruiser driver, but I just can't make the darn thing work. Overrated? Nah, just me being lame.

OTOH, I can absolutely rock the Kutuzov, even post smoke nerf, while some folks complained when it was for sale  "I wasted $$$ on a broken bote!".

With new botes coming out all the time with the attending hype, it's easy to have great expectations.

Best to let the dust settle and then parse the forums, wikis, and stats for the whole story.

Ranger.

Everybody and their mother always going on about how amazing that ship is. Taking out Saipans like they were baby seals just waking up, Kaga's getting their planes torn to shreds left and right, dropping bombs on ships with such accuracy that you'd think they were laser guided. And they even have torpedo planes!

I tell ya', it sounded like the most badass ship in the game.

Toss up between Belfast (give me a Fiji any day) and Giulio Cesare (a pretty weak T5 BB).

I don't know who says that, IMO its the worst CV in the US line and by far the worst CV at 7, maybe in the old days before you couldn't pick your load out. The biggest thing is dealing with other cv's fighters and they strafe escape while the second squad then strafes your fighters.

There are some good candidates in this thread (although Giulio Ceasare is amazing!). I’ll bring up a pet peeve ship of mine....

Lyon

Everybody gets excited about the 16 guns.   Too bad you don’t get any more hits than an 8 or 10 Gun ship because they scatter so badly.   Plus you have to show a LOT of broadside to use them, forcing you to hang back where your dispersion is even worse.

This ship is a huge step down from the excellent Normandie.  I finally just free xp’d  past it.

Khabarovsk.  It's a pure HE spammer at a tier where there are far better HE spammers.

*Not to mention it's a fairly one dimensional HE spammer.  Why bother setting BBs on fire with a Khab, when you can better set them on fire with a Conqueror (or a proper cruiser) while also dev striking cruisers with AP?

Yamato. Still come across people who speak of it in hushed tones. 

And I would also add Musashi.

Both ships are touted as some monstrous floating fortress with "lol overpen" guns... but both have that cheek weakness that allows a lot of ships to citadel them so easily.
