  • Gascogne
  • Varyag
  • Asashio
  • Duca Degli Abruzzi

If I made a top 5, 1-4 would be Haida, and 5 would also be Haida.

Huh.  Based on the list, I'd have to say Varyag.

Yeah, I know - "What the heck is HE smoking?!?!?!"

Fact is, out of that list (and I had to check it a couple of times) it's the only one I've got.

1(a). Z39. T8 stuff on a t7 DD. Great torps. Deadly guns. Possibly the best t8 dd.

1(b). Haida. You dont mess with a Haida. It will murder your DDs and leave you without any scouts. Guns are amazing at short range and the 2 minute creeping smoke is a lot of time to shoot bad guys.

2(a). T61. It's a t6 DD with t10 reload. No mercy is shown.

2(b). Aigle. Put your henri captain on this and zip around burning everything to the waterline.

3. Duca Delgi Abruzzi. The heal is the only thing making it competitive but damn it looks amazing. Hopefully the 30mm bow strip is indicative of future Italian ships with incredibly strong bows. Tanking 16" shells on the nose is amazing.

4. Cossack. If it works, it works. If it doesnt, it doesnt. When it does, the enemy team is just numbers you have not yet added to your scoreboard.

No CVs REEEEE.

I know the feeling, mate ... only have the Aigle myself.  Should have the Cossack soon.

But I do keep eyeing the Haida, T-61 and Abruzzi (don't have any Italian ships yet)>

So those are the ships released since the start of 2018? Wow, that list brings home how I haven't really bought much this year. of those I've only directly bough Asashio, Cossack (at a big discount with guineas), Jean Bart, Vanguard and Dreadnought. Also got Blatago, Blasashio, and Blassachusetts from black friday crates. Of the ones I've bought Asashio has easily been the most hilarious. Cossack and jean Barts are great. And I don't feel that I've gotten the hang of Vanguard, Dreadnought, and Mass B yet to make a judgement.

Come on WG. Give me a decent T6-8 IJN BB which isn't a recycled A hull (Yamashiro plz), or perhaps some sort of non-AP-only RN cruiser. Or how about a Zara class cruiser since I've been wanting to pick one of those up.

I got Roma, Abruzzi and Z-39, love them, some of my most played ships this year. Vanguard and T-61 are recently aditions and very good too. Varyag and Aigle are meh ships, port queens as some would say.

Vanguard has quickly grown on me, it can be a love hate relationshipwith her guns but I mostly love her. T-61 was also a good pick up, so was Haida. Roma looks pretty but the love hate relationship with her guns is worse than Vanguard. Boise is pretty nice and I look forward to getting my own Jean Bart.

I think it's safe to say Roma was the BIGGEST disappointment of 2018. 

Overpens everything, bad bad HE, troll guns, and armor that can get citadelled by DD's. Everyone expected some kickass Italian brawler with flat accurate guns with two types of AP and NO he...and got some gimmick gimped klingon bird of prey.

Well I only have 4 of the ships on this list. I like them all but if I had to rank them then this is how I would.

1. Gascogne : I'm mostly a BB driver and this ship can be fun to play.

2. Z-39 : A good top German DD, which is my top tier DD at the moment.

3. T-61 : Another good German DD, My second top tier DD.

4. Varyag : For me I prefer ships at the tier 5 and above but this ship does get some playing time and she is a good ship at the tier she is at.

My top ships however are Bismarck, Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Duke of York. I also give all ships at least one battle played per session.

This is a no brainer for me. I have 2 ships on that list, one being the Varyag. This means the Aigle is my favorite. Actually I do like this DD.

Cossack: Cheap. Overpowered. British.

 

The continued refusal of WG to release a British premium cruiser was the single biggest disappointment of the year.
