Note use of "for" in the title, not "in."

My vote goes to the Shimikaze.  Hey, why not buff it to 36 torps with a range of 50 Kms?  It wouldn't be that much more ridiculous.

Just thinking of the Shimi is enough to make a girl think about ragequitting again.

The range is an extra. The idea is to drop them as close as possible. Emerald you can pierce by looking at her.

You're telling me Shimakaze is worse than Belfast for the game?

Blasto,

  Do you even owned the Shimi?   Based on your post I assume not.   

  Anyway, while the Shimi is a good DD with excellent stealth, very good speed, and good Alpha damage guns there are some vices.   The torps hit very hard but the detection on them is poor, rate of fire on the guns is meh, and it's easy to hit due to it's size.

  Like any ship, in the hands of a good player it's frightful, but sometimes even with a good player, MM don't go it's way.

 

Anyway, worst ship(s) for the game are premium T9 and soon T10 ships (whether free XP or purchased).

vr,

Yesh with toast on top, to use LWM's line.

 

:cat_bubble:

That's "on Toast" not toast on top. Any ship I can't own, is bad for the game 235 ships and counting.

I don't think you understand my point. 

Nearly all IJN DD Torpedoes are easy to spot. You just gotta make so that there is no way to dodge them when they see them.

Your point is definitely lacking any meaning. There are those that play the ship well and there are those that don't. There is also those that play well against the ship. Which is it?

I would say a Worcester, Belfast, and Asashio are all far more cancerous than a Shima.  

For everyone who seems to be confused, he is not talking about ships that are bad, he's talking about ships that are bad for the game.

Not sure what your real definition is.

Does it mean thar you play the ship and you can get easy damage with it because its so OP or does it means "heay I have never played the ship and no idea how to counter it".

All ships with Radar followed closely by all ships with Smoke.  Zero skill (or very little skill) very high reward. Yes I am opening that can of worms.

I'm pretty sure we all get that. We just don't think Shima is bad because if you let yourself get caught in a Shima torpedo soup that is on you. There are ways to avoid that. Getting caught in a Worcester firestorm is much harder to avoid, and much more frustrating to deal with. The toxicity of ships that can be behind an island making them near immune to counterfire and just pummel a ship is, in my opinion, a lot higher than a ship whose main damage dealing ability is easily countered by WASD hacks.

Wow.. I can't agree.  I think the shim got hit pretty hard with the nurf hammer a while back and now it's pretty fair.  The radar additions to the game make it much harder to play as you're pretty much alwasy spotted.   

The hardest thing to deal with is all the folks screaming at you for not rushing into the cap (and dying).

No, Karlsruhe and FDG take the cake.

Karlsruhe?  Really? The same Karlsruhe that lobs little kisses at you and never even scratches the paint?

Meh...when I see a Shimi in the MM lineup, all I see is just another T10 DD to factor into how I play.  Well, to be fair, I do process its capabilities (as well as its limitations) and any ability to use them given the lineup.   But it has no more aura than any other T10 DD.  And depending on the map and MM, it could even be handicapped compared to others.

I completely agree with this, I am not a big fan of T9 and T10 premiums, especially since I felt like the tiers were pretty well balanced overall without them.

You might have understood that, but I see at least 3 posts that don't really give off an "I understand what I just read" vibe.

Shim's not the terror it once was, but it's far from being the worst ship in the game.
