Cursed Ships

You guys ever notice that sometimes the game decides to curse a ship, and no matter how good you play, how hard you try, you will lose in it until the curse is lifted. Normally this means walking away and not playing it for a while...

 

In the case of my Atago I have been playing very well in it prior to today. I was trying to train up a IJN captain and so I continued to play the atago until the Captain was trained. I have yet to win a match in it today. 0-9.......

 

I'm convinced if I log in right now, and play a game in it, I will lose.

Oh yeah. There are a few ships I am 'good' with, getting high damage scores and even kills with, but just seem to never be able to force a win with. A standout example of mine is ARP Kongo and IJN Kongo.

 

 ARP Kongo has 35 games for a 45% win rate, while IJN Kongo has 38 games with 68% win rate. (55k and 59k damage, respectively as well) They're the same ship. I play them exactly the same. Despite my best efforts I can't win with the ship East German Nightclub.

The Dunkirk is my cursed ship. Don't think I've won a PvP game in it.

As far as winning my Enterprise is cursed. Always 90k+ damage, multiple kills, rarely wins.

I wouldn't be too worried if it doesn't look good with few matches.  But once you creep into 30+ matches and it still looks bad, I'd start getting alarmed.

 

Khabarovsk was that way for me.  Everybody and their grandmother are awesome in that DD.  The average stats show that.  But I remember at around 50 or 60 matches in, I had an abysmal 38% or something like that Win Rate.  Damage wasn't too great.  It was annoying because in Udaloi I was outstanding.  It took a lot of work, but I finally maintain a respectable WR% in Khab, 102 matches and 55% WR.  The Dmg Avg still needs a lot of work.

I basically Free XPed my way to Iowa and she really really hates me. On the other hand, I Free XPed to Richelieu from Normandie and Richelieu loves me.

I did go back to Normandie and Lyon and I loved both of them a lot. What got me into really wanting Richelieu is that I got Dunkerque for free from a Super Container and she has treated me well since. Not anymore though... Dunkerque is jealous of her bigger younger sister...

Undoubtedly, the Indianapolis is my cursed ship.  No matter how well i play in her, i always loose. 

I want to like the ship, but I'm certain she just likes to watch me twitch and curse.

I'd post a picture from wows-numbers but for the life of me don't know how to take the screen shot... Anyway, my cursed ship is the Friedrich De Grosse.

49 battles I played with her and only a 39% w/r. but a PR of 2260 and average damage of 93k. My current curse ship is the Zao. perform great in her but my current w/r is dropping fast.

Takes me 3-4 battles to get a win in her

Yamato is (or at least was, it seems to be getting better) for me. I was 2-13 at one point. I'm up to 14-22 (39%) but at first I just couldn't win games, and it wasn't my fault. Half of the team would be dead within 7 minutes.

Probably has something to do with using DD/cruiser captain on BB and plays the BB as if it is a DD.

The Mahan was probably my first cursed ship, still has a sub 45% WR. My new Wooster might be as well, even though I do pretty good in it.

I was driving Hindenberg and Henri IV while grinding the Halsey Campaign and BOTH ships were cursed! It was endless defeats with a very rare win just to tease me. I must have had a 10%, at best, win rate. I finally gave up on using tier 10s in Randoms and used tier 8s in Co-Op. I advanced just as fast with wins in Co-Op as I did with losses in Randoms and it wasn't frustrating.

Massachusetts is far and away my highest damage producing tier 8 BB and is my 2nd highest WTR rated BB yet it has my lowest WR of 46.43.  The best was when I lost this game .  I have so many 100K + losses in this ship it makes my head spin.  If I were somebody to believe in a vengeful WG I would think they purposefully did this during the first 25 battles lol

I often have very good games in the Texas damage wise, but I have a 40% wr or something like that.

*Checks Scharnhorst stats*

 

I do NOT regret that purchase however. Ship is hella fun.

For me, it'd have to be Nicholas and Budyonny. Nicholas I could hardly survive a game in, and most games in her I did piss-poor damage

 

I don't get why I suck in the Budyonny so much. It's so easy, it seems. I mean, I watch what the pros do, I follow their instructions and advice to the letter, and what happens?

Loss. next game,  I died early.  Loss. next game, I died early. Loss. next game, I died early. Loss. next game, I died early. Loss. next game, I died early. Loss. next game, I died early. Loss. next game, I died early. Loss. next game, I died early... ad infinitum.

 

I want to like Budyonny, honest! But I can't... :Smile_sad:
