Sad or boring stories of ships without love? 

 

Isokaze used to be my bae boat. Now, I can't stand her nerfed form. 

Also bought Blyska on two accounts/for friend, now, she doesn't do much of anything on either.

Ok-Rev, Texas, Diana, Emden, Miaska, Katori, Cambeltown, Yubari...probably forgetting some

 

Blyska is what I've been playing the most. Blys, Lenny, Haida, z-39... even the Sims once in a while.

All of my BBs except Scharnhorst plus my tier 8 Cruisers and DDs.

I find Battleship play to be boring as hell. Waiting a month of Sundays for the guns to load and/or the turrets to rotate onto the target. Endlessly waiting to be able to do something.

And my tier 8 CA/CLs and DDs; Endlessly bottom tiered against a crapload of vastly superior XXXXXXXs. Not fun to play as a result so they collect rust and pigeon crap in port.

Too many to list. Pretty much anything Russian, most of my French ships, the majority of my Americans...

The most recent addition to the "no not play under any circumstances" list is PEF.

Anything tier 4 and below - just not that interested in lower tier play

All my tier 8 ships - sit in port since I am tired of MM

Mikasa and pretty much all T2-3, Sims and most DD's. Lost a lot of interest in that class recently...oh, and Saipan, which I never played(tried for a refund, WG said no).

Nearly all t6 and lover.

Once you have more tech tree ships 8+ there and you particularly not in real love low tiers playing them is a bit obsolete.

Exceptions: Kamikaze class t5, if you have gremyachny.

Indianapolis - Pensacola and New Orleans are just better

Ishizuchi - rather play Arkansas Beta

Duca D'Aosta - it was free, but just yuck!

Kidd - Fletcher and Cossack are just better as DD's, not even a CO trainer as Atlanta is better.

Dallas - rather Pensacola

Krasny Krym - Konigsberg and Omaha are much better for me

ARP Ships - gave me a reason to sell Kongo and Myoko, that is pretty much the only positive thing I can say about these

 

There are many more that just sit, but if I played lower tiers they would be ok.  The ones above are the standouts.

Anything below T10 sits in port. 

Hell, I don't really even play outside CB any more, so you can argue everything.

All my DDs, just not fun to play.

T4 and under simply due to mission requirements.

Usually T8 and above due to poor game play at higher tiers.

I have a ton of port queens. Some because they just flat out are terrible and some while good/ok ships because I mainly play higher tier now and they are lower but kept for some reason like I have a perma camo. 

Not listing all of them but will list the ones I almost never play  because I generally dislike them, they are really bad, or I just don't click with the playstyle called for...

  • IJN - Nagato/Amagi/Atago(+B)
  • BRN - Monarch
  • KM - Yorck
  • RU - Kronshtadt 
  • ITL - Roma
  • FRE - Aigle/Le Terrible

These ships hardly ever get played because I really don't like them. Roma and Kronshtadt are flat out hate and the rest just don't work for me. Again I have a ton of ships in port and many don't get played but other than these I like the others I just have ships I would rather play.

Most of my ships are port queens.  I really only play Kuma, Minekaze, Leander, Fiji, Khab, , so, around 60 sit in the port most of the time.

Anything high tier.

My Enterprise in Randoms.

Nearly 200 PvE games in it; ZERO PvP games.

I'm the opposite.  All of my port queens are any ship below tier 5 without exception.  Why?  Because every damned mission in this game seems to have a minimum tier requirement of tier 5, if not higher.  IMO, this limitation really makes it difficult to justify playing my low tier ships.

I will take the time over the next couple of weeks to clear off the snowflakes on my tier 2 through 4 premium ships though, since there is a good reason to do so, even if they don't net all that much coal.  Every little bit helps, and it all adds up.

I tired the Indianapolis, but couldn’t make it work. If anything sneezes on you, you lose half your HP.

Let's see:  37 ships owned, and I play 9 of them....  Gifts, rewards, etc......are nice and have a place because "you may just need them" if there are "specific mission, event, campaign, or tier requirements....."  So, they sit till WG creates a need for them.  I've sold just a few ships in the 11 months I've been in-game and they were ships, like the Texas as an example for joining the game, I just couldn't find a reason to like or keep.
