Low tier weekend

As someone who has been playing the game for a couple of years, and now have over 100 ships in port, sometimes difficult to decide what to play.  Spend most of my time tier 6 to 10, so have a lot of ships who never get out of port.  Have fourteen tier 2 to 4 ships that I have not really played in awhile.   Good tech tree ships (Clemson, Izyaslav) that I kept because they were fun to play and competitive in their tier, good premiums (Cambeltown, König Albert, Smith) that I bought with doubloons as trainers, free ships ( Vampire, Katori, Tachibana Lima, Emden), and a bunch of others that I got through X-mas containers or bought at a steep discount.  A lot of pretty interesting ships that have been virtually rusting for quite a while.  Have not sold any since they are not worth much, or the fear the I would get them back in a container at the expense of something more valuable.

So, this weekend, to shake the rust off this ships, going to be a low tier only weekend for me.  Re-experience some great lower-tier ships, or get reacquainted  with some ships that were bad and sitting in port for a reason. Put the grinding and credit, experience production aside and just try to enjoy some low tier games.

I have 3 non premium and about 6 premium ships I actively play (or own for that matter, that's all I have). If I want to play a DD I have Gearing, Akizuki, Anshan, and Tachibana, for cruiser I have Atago (no upgrades since I sold them), for battleships I have Yamato, Scharnhorst, Warspite, and Alabama (warspite, Alabama, and Scharnhorst don't have modules either). It's easy to pick a ship when you don't have many choices.

Great Idea. Would be really fun if WG had a low tier weekend. Bunch of missions tier 4 and lower.

I do this when divving with new players to help them up the tiers. 

Must say the vanpire and a cheesy 19 point captain with IFHE in a Varyag is always fun!

  Hmmm.   It could be fun to take St Louis, Wyoming, etc out again!   Not to mention finally finishing up grinding G-101, lol.     I have 152 ships in port, and STILL have 16 empty port slots.   There are at least two grinds nearing completion in addition to the G-101: Buffalo and Gneisenau.

  Thus, there are a TON of ships not getting any play.   Lately, Gneisenau; Buffalo; Montana; Queen Elizabeth; Baltimore and Cleveland have gotten all the play time.

I figured the noob mistakes of torping friendlies and having no clue about objectives would wane in the low tiers as the game aged.

Recent forays with Clemson have proven I was incorrect. 

If you play T4 and under, watch your back for green torps.  Also be prepared for 4-5 ships to run away from needed caps to the far corners of the globe to shoot at a shiny carrier.  I don't know why they do this.

Clemson still gets a lot of play from me, as does Vampire...I love that style of DD play, and while I enjoy the challenge radar brings to high-tiers, sometimes I just want to play balls-to-the-wall aggressive DD play in a way that is much less survivable in higher tiers now.

  Definitely!   I can get away with stuff all day long in Wickes that would get me curbstomped in Benson with the quickness, lol.

And thats diff from higher teirs how? I've had to dodge so many green torps today I started wondering if I looked red to my team.
