Instead of "fixing" premiums, why not start here instead.

Instead of pissing off paying customers, this might be a good place to start.

Two of those three are still premiums, some of whose owners paid real $$$ to convert Elite XP to obtain them.

What does a ship's popularity have to do with its performance?

So Musashi, a Premium ship in which some people paid real money to obtain free experience for, should be nerfed, because it is popular? Kronshtadt is in the same boat as Musashi, except it was never offered for coal, and you think it should be nerfed because it is popular? You want to stop the nerfing of premium ships, by advocating for the nerfing of premium ships...

While I agree Kitakaze needs to be toned down a bit, you're really not making much of a point here.

How does popularity come into play?  Should Cleveland also be nerfed because it's the most played ship in the entire game?

These are also all tier nine.  We just had ranked with tier nine. Perhaps that's why they're so "popular."

I saw that and blasted coffee out my nose earlier.

I've never done that.  Sounds painful.

Coke (acola) was bad enough.

You should have left it at Coke. I was about to have a noser myself reading THAT. XD

The quote is specifically the Tier IX Ranked season stats.  So Musashi and Kitakaze were so dramatically the most chosen ships for the Ranked Battles.  The call is not to nerf them because they are popular, but to ask, "Why are these ships so popular?"  Is it because they just look cool, or because they are better than their peers?

Musashi is certainly popular because she was a free XP / coal ship, and thus obtainable by any player even if they had not gotten up any lines to Tier IX, or had passed and sold all their Tier IX ships on the way to Tier X.  But seriously, if anyone had both, who would choose Izumo to take to Ranked instead of Musashi?

It's not as bad as blasting a carbonated beverage out one's nose. It is, however, much, much hotter.:fish_nerv:

I have never partaken, but if nose candy comes out your nose, haven't you done something wrong?

Mushy was popular more due to her massive HP pool, rather than because of her overmatch ability. She simply takes forever to murder down, unless one gets lucky and devstrikes her, which I did quite a bit with Black. If your team got the heal buffs, Mushy became all but impossible to kill, leading to her ending up top of the team time and again, simply because she was alive longer and so could farm more damage.

 

I used Black and Mushy for something like 90% of my rounds. Kita and I aren't getting along well yet, and while I won with Allspice, I didn't do well with her. Jutland, I did well, but didn't win. I only played one cruiser round, and that was with Kron, which was an epic Die-hard on a Black win.

I would assume so. Then again, I wouldn't know myself. I am in love with a different kind of Coco.

You either don't know what you're doing, or you need to clean out your nose before starting lol.

Speaking of doing cocaine wrong (not that there is a right way to do cocaine IMO):

 

 Now there is actually one good reason I can think of to put cocaine up your nose, and that is in a paste specifically applied to shut down a prolific nosebleed that just won't stop (it constricts the small arteries and lets the clotting factors do their work). It's kept in a locked cupboard with the morphine and fentanyl for obvious reasons.

Is no one else shocked that the Kron leads cruisers in matches played over *any* period of time?

I think we're all missing the real message here:

Buffalo is a menace and it needs to be put in its place. 
For too long it has remained overpowered. 

For too long it has dominated the tier 9 meta!

Nerf Buffalo.  It's the only answer that makes sense.

And when you're done, don't forget to nerf Emerald.
