Hey Guys, Some of you may ask "What do you define as a Cursed Ship", Simply....
No matter how well you do, you always lose with this said ship. Simple as that. 

I've had fantastic games with mine. Many "Top of the team" awards and even a Kraken!, but they all end with a tragic loss. May I present...
My Massachusetts Black. I've become so disheartened to play. Comparing with the 25% of this ship I feel like I'm playing it correctly, but I am doomed to always lose with it.
I ended up co-op my snowflake due to so many losses back to back.

Yes!  My Nelson.  I score OK in it but my WR just sucks.  

My calamitous DD rates are understandable, but I like the Nelson...

Yue yang. Had soooo much fun in that thing! I’m not a stats obsessed person and rarely check that junk but I was literally floored when I saw how low my win rate in that boat was. I mean, not even close to what I expected. My usually reliable grins-per-game meter was at 70% or higher even when I had a long string of losses. Yeah... way wrong. Lol! I decided that once it became less fun I’d sell it. A few months later the nerf hammer crushed it and made the decision easier.  Anyway, it was cursed for me.

Yeah, my Graf Zeppelin
Every time I keep saying "I need to lay low using this ship" makes me more want to use the ship...

Edit:
Nah, it's Cossack, I keep losing despite I am carrying my tier 9 and 10 allied ships...

Hsienyang. I struggled with it to the point where I was just playing very poorly every time I took it out because I was just mentally expecting to fall apart. It was definitely a case of failing my way through that ship rather than advancing past it.

Asashio, easily. I do everything I can to win, from gunning down DDs in a cap, to capping, to spotting, and even killing CAs, CLs and BBs now and then. But, no matter how much I've done, she just don't seem to win games. I'm not border humping, and I'm not spending half the game sneaking to a place I can accidentally TK my allies from, but I can't seem to get her higher than 50%.

Then again, I guess I've not really used her since the gun buffs. ...Maybe I should? She does have those awesome Shima guns.

As for a more proper curse, there's Minotaur with an 18.18% WR. I just can't get her to work as well as Edin, and she loses even good games. If I didn't do so well in Edin, I'd think I just sucked in general, but I feel like I can do better taking Edin into a T10 game.

Musashi. Highly acclaimed ship that performs absolutely terribly for me. I truly regret purchasing it. A lot of my ships' WR wouldn't reflect how well I actually do in them. Actually, the better I do in a ship personally, the less likely it is that ship will have a good win rate. Perplexing.

Shinonome. I swear, that ship hates me for some reason. I consider landing a torp with her a huge success by itself.

Furutaka for sure.

It was one of my first T5s (so before I think 3 buffs now) and even recently when I played it for a few games, averaging 80k damage and 2 kills/game wasn't enough for a 50%+ winrate...

Although I play very little PVP I actually do have a "cursed ship". It's Bayern. I am 1 for 6 in it (17% WR LOL :Smile_sceptic:) despite having good games and placing at or near the top. If I play Bayern I am almost assured of a roflstomp where I end up alone vs 5+ reds. To make it even better I am also assured that as I do my best to deal with the situation I will have "that guy" who died 30 seconds into the game, on the other side of the map from me, and who did no damage, telling me in chat I suck and the loss and his death are my fault.

Prior to the AZ game I won back in Feb (my last PVP game) I had a 4 game losing streak and they were all roflstomps in my Bayern. :Smile_facepalm:

Same here. I do good damage, carry my weight in a battle. All with something like a 31% win rate. It saddens me more that the Helena (for me at least) is a complete blast to play :(

Me too. Although I think it was my first T10 - I just play far too aggressive for it - I know the proper way to play to it....I just dont.

Turns out, I am cursed..or simply suck at RN dd's. at about 50 games combined I am under 35% with the Cossack, Lightning and Daring.

I have played the Atago a lot and finally got it to a decent level but for over two years it was like at 48% while my poor mans Atago (takao) was at 70%, drove me nuts.

Dunkerque for me.  Cannot make it work at all.  I think I have a 0% survival rate in it.  It is the single reason I have no interest in picking up the Nelson.  I just can't make this ship with all the guns forward work to save my life.

She would be better than Seattle and Cleveland if she had ~1 .5 km of nore range. She's my favorite tech tree ship and nothing is working. If i Island hump, everybody dies or the enemy refuses to show up to that side or kites. If i chase dds, i get deleted, faster than when im in my Atlanta!
