Favourite Low Tier Ships

Do you still play Low Tier ships? I really like the ships from Russo-Japanese War to First World War periods. The only drawback I have playing those ships is that the queues are significantly longer compared to that other tiers. From Tier II to Tier IV, what are your favourite and most played ships if someone still play them? Is funny to play Lower Tier ships with 10 points captains, I mostly play japanese destroyers Tachibana, Umikaze, Wakatake and Isokaze with concealment Expert skill. I sometimes play russian protected cruisers such as Bogatyr, Aurora and Diana.

No, that would make me feel dirty. The only time I generally play low tiers is in my Tier II premiums(working off pink) or if I'm actually grinding their lines.

I play them occasionally, St Louis for tier 3, and Ishizuchi and Svietlana for tier 4.

None. Low tiers are like Mario Kart on water and not fun because of short gun ranges.

If trashing some guy with a few dozen games feeds your self esteem good for you.

I have kept all the ships that I have purchased. I have every line up to T6 and most to T7. I go back and play them periodically. I will use the low tier premiums to farm that little bit extra XP for a first win bonus some days. I play mostly PvE, so I'm not clubbing anyone. If I did play PvP in a low tier ship, I have play less than 1k games, so I don't think I would make a good seal clubber.

Some low tier ships are worth holding onto, others, not so much.

I like Vampire, Bogatyr, and Clemson the most from the lower tiered offerings.(St.Louis was really good too). Tenryu is underappreciated. I got many of my WoWs "firsts" in Tenryu and it is fantastic for learning the basics of the game.

Konig Albert and Orion are almost abusive, along with good old Imperator Nikolai.

if you can get a hold of the T2 Smith, it has 11 second base torp reload. The reload goes to 9.9 seconds with the 3 pt Torpedo Armament Expertise skill. Add in AR and you can get it even faster. They are 4.5km torps that have 54 knots speed and hit for max 6,033 damage. The T2 Smith has 3 single fire tubes. One on each side of the DD and one to the rear that can swing to both sides. It has five single 76.2mm guns, so you aren't going to get big hits, but they reload every 3.5 seconds, so LOTS of pew, pew.

 

Some day I will make a DD captain with PT, LS, SE, CE, TAE, BFT, AR, PM to be able to take full advantage of the Smith.

Yea, I've tried to get the Smith, but I haven't ever got enough doubloons to get it, so the Tachibana will do for me. Thanks for the recommendation, though.

FOr me,

  • ISOKAZE, always number one. A great ship using the CE, torp range, and short torp reload meta. A great ship
  • T-140, Great Torp DD trainer.
  • CLEMSON, fantastic gun ship

When I need a break from grinding other lines, in the low tiers these are my go to ships. I am even tolerable to NOOB errors because hell its just for fun. In the upper tiers on the other hand, I expect a little bit more from both sides. Sometimes, someone will come up short.

I play the K Albert a bunch, very fun and cool ship. I use her in my german rotation for captain leveling, so most of the time she has high level CPT driving her.

Tier III:

Either Konig Albert or the "Low Tier Russian Vodka-Fire Breathing Dragon," 130mm Bogatyr.

Tier IV:

Orion or Imp.Nikolai I.  Clemson, but I don't play DDs much.  Langley or Hosho are solid, powerful.  Low Tier AA is nonexistent, so the IV CVs run rampant.

Tier V:

If I were a DD guy, the Fujin / Kamikaze family of DD clones.  Then you got Caesar.  Bogue or Zuiho are very strong CVs, unless they run into Double CV matches where Tier VI CVs with Strafe are present.

Edit:  I forgot to mention Gremyaschy!

 

Most Cruisers in low tier are downright garbage.  Many of the game's squishiest Cruisers are found in low tier.  Even Destroyers can citadel the sh*t out of them.
