Well, since WG does not actually offer tier 9 battles anymore, they may be there somewhere but I have not had one for weeks, maybe a month, then why should we have to grind through tier 9?  Would you buy a car that could only drive on the roads on Tuesdays? NOPE.   Would you buy movie tickets but was only allowed to see the trailer? NOPE.  Then I rest my case.  See WG, we put in work for our ships, and if you can't figure it out then you should not offer a broken product like a ship without its' own tier.  And tier 8 is getting closer to also becoming this broken merchandise as we speak.

No need for a petition, that is what free xp can be used for.

Ya, I know, just trolling them, but it still makes sense.

Considering how much money i spend and plan to spend to avoid the garbage barge tier, it would be silly of them to do this.

Plus they so totally know they are setting up pay walls. Why do you think most T9 ships suck minus the Alsace (Not counting Mo)?

They know. Trust me they know.

That doesn't make any sense.

If you have a T9, you can play it anytime you want.

Would you buy a car that had to share the road with faster cars? YUP.

Would you buy movie tickets, knowing you probably would only get mediocre seats? YUP.

Besides, you don't have to play T9s. You can play whatever you want, and bank enough free XP to skip them, it's even quicker if you pay money.

Not disagreeing that T9s are largely crap though. I don't have the money or patience to skip them, so I just don't worry about getting the T10s.

Although Roon was ok, FdG just made me put the captain back in Bismarck and forget the whole thing lol. And with how much I love Amagi, I'm not punishing her captain by making him drive an Izumo.....

arguably one of the most epic posts in the history of the game. the audacity. the nerve...its magnificent. its brilliant. skip the bad ships....get good ships... genius. 

At some point you will find that doing well in lesser ships is 3x more gratifying than doing well in strong ships. I applaud your candor.

The exceedingly painful Izumo is one that bypassing really makes sense but from my own experience both in the live game and the PT the other tier 9's are generally decent ships

Wow. People actually complain about T9, which I thought is the sweet spot of almost all lines.

Like I said, they all seem to be pretty good other than the Izumo.

Oh please!

T9 has very good ships that I kept, like and play often (not Izumo).

I like Fletcher, Yugumo, Udaloi, Chung Mu, Alsace, Missouri, Roon

I have in port but play less (like less), Kronshtadt, Buffalo, Seattle, Neptune. Z-46 and Musashi.

The rest: all sold (exception Iowa which I sold as redundant for me but good ship - as I have Missouri, North Carolina, Alabama, so I do not need another similar one).

If you do not like a ship, skip it using Free XP.

 

PS: I do not mention CVs as I do not have or play any.

When was the last time you took out Buffalo or Seattle?

I even liked Izumo after putting manual secondaries on and ceasing to bow tank with it.

I don't have the Seattle yet but I do have the Buffalo and even with a terrible win rate I don't find it to be bad, just a classic glass cannon.

I've asked my clan for one thing, one damn thing positive about either of those boats and the general answer is either; the end when they sold it or nothing. I mean Seattle has worse guns than Cleveland and at tier 9 when range is really important. It's not sounding or looking good for either of those ships. With 203's you would think Buffalo wouldn't be as bad as it is but...yeah.

To each of their own i guess? But popular opinion on T9 is that its usually a garbage tier short of a couple boats.

The only really bad T9 ship is the Izumo. But to be fair to that ship it even teaches you to play differently compared to the Amagi and earlier ship's.

A lot of good tier 9s too. Alsace, Buffalo, NepNep, and Roon etc... I'm guessing OP just got an Izumo...
