Well, this thread got me thinking: 

And I got some very interesting answers, at least I thought so...What now? Flip the coin, and ask about the unloved...

Me? I'm having fun in my Acasta... Yeah, you run around like Taz on meth trying not die, but that can be fun...if a little exhausting...

After ignoring the USN CL line for like ever, I won the camo for the Helena...don't have her yet, but I seem to do good in the Dallas, which seems to get no love..

Okay, time to fess up, what boats you think need some love?

Yorck. My first T7 and it gave me fits for a long time but I finally learned to appreciate her strengths. I rarely play her these days. Recently took her into the Narai Op and racked up a pair of 150k damage matches. No sitting back sniping either. Up close and in the Bot faces.

Kawachi is relaxing in its own way. Sail it like a unicum BB player, but at the end of the day every time you click the fire button it is like pulling the lever on a slot machine. Nobody expects a Kawachi to do anything, so I occasionally take it out to unwind.

If you haven't yet, read up on the Helena, it will make you appreciate her even more.

I enjoy playing most of the ships that are considered less than average. Ibuki, Balti.... all tech tree ships for the most part.

I know about the Helena and her epic fights with the "Tokyo Express." I just need a reason to do the grind I guess...

I like the IJN Mikasa. Wonky guns, but good secondarys (if you can get close enough).

Mikasa.  I'm running a nearly 80% winrate and 3:1 K/D on that p.o.s.  lol  

 

Other, less-extreme examples would be the Hood, (which people seem to find weak for reasons I cannot fathom) and Asashio, (which has prompted randoms to chat such things as "well this is a loss" right at the start of a match.)

Granted, I don't find either ship to be weak, but I suppose some people do?  I don't know.

Musashi.

I mean, before it was introduced the whole forum went on and on about how useless and meaningless it was going to be, right?

Most of the US BB line before NC is considered trash by many...but Wyoming is still fun when I want to relax a bit.  12-gun shotgun.  Don't be in the way!  And the old tub is tough, even if it is slow.

Ships I've seen a lot of negative comments about, that I really like(d).

Konigsberg

Nuremberg

Yorck

New Orleans, especially the new version.

Wyoming

The old USN CV fighter loadouts

While not a ship I was super fond of, the old Pensacola was better for a tier 7 than the new Pens is for a tier 6.

Krasny Krym (the only ship I've ever scored from a crate)

There's a lot of ships that are 'trash' by some, because they're not this, or that.  Especially any ship that doesn't have Soviet railgun shell arcs, which basically makes the whole US line 'trash' to some people.

I really loved Danae. She still holds my record for kills. I don‘t know, she was just right for me despite her pathetic armor.

Sims. 63% WR after 100+ battles, 49% server average.

No idea why.

Isn't Baltimore considered to be a very strong ship?

I'm just gonna say it, I love me Colorado. I never felt comfortable in the Nagato, but damn did I love driving the Colorado, to the extent that playing the NC felt like a downgrade. Of course, I've felt a special disdain for the Nagato ever since I fought a pair of them in my Fuso on Ocean and (with only a little support from a Cleveland) killed them both.

I kind of like the Belfast...

it's not normally considered a "garbage" boat, though...

Having said that, it is when I play it!  :Smile_teethhappy:

Boats I actually like others deadpan huh? Hmmm, let me think...

  • Emerald
  • Konigsberg
  • Hood
  • New York
  • Omaha
  • The old T7 Pensacola (hate the new T6 heavily nerfed version)
  • Abruzzi
  • Ashitaka
  • Mutsu
  • Colorado 
  • Blyskawica (see a lot of people beat up on it since removal of OWSF - I love it)

All I can think of at moment. I tend to like many others don't and hate those many love so...:Smile_teethhappy:
