Captains,

Based off an awesome post done yesterday about "keeping 2 ships" I ask you this question?

If you could only keep 1 ship per tier, what would it be and why?

You can choose to leave tiers out or give a ship for each tier.

You can choose to keep ships based on looks, play-style, history of the ship or just because you like the name!

Keep it friendly and have some fun with this!

I will post my list in a bit =).

T1: Black Swan; because 102mm guns

T2: Mikasa; because only pre-Dreadnought

T3: Dreadnought; because Dreadnought

T4: Nikolai, not just because Overpowerded. which she is, but because she's really the most interesting T4 ship in general. It was her or Orion.

T5: Iron Duke; she uptiers well

T6: Warspite; because Warspite

T7: Algerie; awesome flamethrower and like a free Hipper at T7

T8: Kidd; straight overpowered, easy mode Destroyer

T9: Lion; because Lion.

T10: Minotaur; because she fits my playstyle perfectly

10 - i would say midway but sinse wg kill it in 0.8.0 i maybe choise keep desmemes... fast reload, strong shells, heavy cruiser, radar...

T1: Black Swan  6 barrels

T2: Smith...fast reloading torps

T3: South Carolina (accurate guns at T3!)/runner up is Bogatyr 

T4: clubson 

T5: Emile Bertin...but other fun ones here too like the GC and Texas

T6: Old Cleveland or Aigle...so much firepower but so limited in being able to use it due to the poor fire angles which makes it fun

T7: Fiji...such a fun ship.  Lack of HE is a definite plus to give other ships counterplay against it.

T8: NC edges out new Cleveland.  I love ships which reward good play and punish mistakes.  NC is great for that.

T9 Fletcher edges out radar Chung mu.  Radar Chung mu with fletcher torps would be perfect.  Radar Chung Mu is an adrenaline rush since you have no smoke but can “colonize on sight” other dds  Fletcher is incredible solid.

T10 DM...greatly rewards good play and brutally punishes mistakes.  Radar range is short enough you must be exposed to use it (unless going through an island...which I like to avoid doing)

1. Erie- Eh, why not.

2. Chester- AFT=longer ranged mains.

3. Charleston- Premium St. Louis, do I need to say more?

4. Wyoming- Was a surprisingly fun BB when I first started out.

5. Texas-Hits hard, decent AA, what's not to like?

6. Arizona- It's the Arizona...I don't need another reason.

7. Scharnhorst- secondaries+torps almost make up for the bad mains, lol.

8. Massachusetts- the first T8 I actually liked...

9. Missouri- same as Arizona, it's the Missouri.

10. Montana- an Iowa with a conventional armor layout, better torp reduction, half the reload on secondaries and an extra turret...what's the downside again?

  1. Black Swan / Old Hermelin

It really is a shame what they did to T1 ships.  I know they weren't for everybody, but they used to be good, simple fun before they nerfed them into the ground.

I don't tend to play anything below tier 5, so I'll start there.  T7 and T8 are such all-around solid tiers that it's hard to narrow those down.

5 - Furutaka; a good all-around ship, but 203s at tier 5 are gross.  Runner-up for me would probably be the Konigsberg, built-in IFHE at T5 is pretty spicy.

6 - Farragut; completely underestimated gunboat because of the short-range torps.  Honorable mention to the Gnevny (again, underrated because of its torps), Leander and basically all of the T6 BB.

7 - Jervis; for such a good tier, it stood out to me on the UK DD grind as a hidden gem.  Helena is a close 2nd, with Nagato, Fiji, Gadjah and Lyon not far behind.

8 - Akizuki; kinda clumsy but a monster that uptiers well.  The Lightning is not far behind for me, and an honorable mention to the NC and Kiev.

9 - Udaloi; people sleep on it, but it's tons of fun and a strong ship in the right hands.  Kitakaze, Jutland and Fletcher follow it for me, in that order.  I honestly think T9 is a pretty balanced tier when comparing the tech tree ships, a lot of them just get really overshadowed by the premiums and their T10 counterparts.

10 - Hindenburg is my favorite, even though all the T10s are basically keepers in my book.

1. Black Swan

2. Umikaze

3. Tenryu - Amazing ship, does everything.

4. Ishizuchi - Solid AP, amazing HE,

5. Furutaka - Iron Duke was close but the OP T5 Cruiser wins out.

6. Molotov - Almost went with Fubuki but the Molotov is a blast to play.

7. Nagato - The guns are just fun. Superstructure is ridiculous though.\

8. Asashio - Hard tier to choose, Akizuki, Atago, Eugen, Bismarck, Kagero and Loyang are all fun ships but the Asashio is just too much fun. God Tier torps and underestimated gun power make her my choice.

9. Kitakaze - She does everything well, Concealment, guns, torps... everything.

10. Z-52 - I built my WoWs empire on the back of the Moskva. The GK is as much fun as a BB can be but ultimately the Z is the ship I choose when I am on a rough luck streak and she never fails to bring out the joy I have for this game. Does a little of everything a DD should do and does it in a way that the enemy doesn't seem to be prepared for. Unloading AP volleys on CLs that assume a DD will run is pure joy. Also, Hydro rushing a red DD's smoke is the pinnacle of WoWs fun for me.

10. Yamato because lolpen

T1: black swan. Best aa in tier. 

T2: V25, closest to a pt boat we'll have

T3: Wickes, derpy fun with 4 sets of torps and us smoke

T4: izyaslav, better clubber than clemson

T5: konigsberg, first ship that really clicked with me

T6, Arizona, it's does things when you get where you are going

T7, Atlanta, because holding mouse buttons down is better for their health

T8, Massachusetts, because having Atlanta guns without having to click the mouse button at all is better yet! 

T9, Jutland, just a beast against other dds. 

T10, des Moines, versatile with good utility.
