My vote is the Seattle, I may be biased due to my current difficulties. But it just seems to be horrible.  I can remember a worse one. I'm interested to see if anyone agrees or not

The problem is that good players that position well can make most things work. I have been given a hard time by azumas that know when to showem and when to holdem.

FDG for me too. I've sold her twice, after buying her twice. Only to give up not care much on on progressing to GK

For me it was between FDG and Izumo.  But the Izumo has been buffed since I grinded past her so she is in a better state now.  So my vote goes to FDG.

IZUMO !!!  There isn't another ship as worthless as that one.....  I vote for a serious IJN tier 9 !!!  Come on Dev's, let's get one out there for the IJN.....

My vote is Roon. An aggressive cruiser player like me does not do well when 2/3 of my firepower is on my stern. Azuma, Izumo, FDG, Seattle, and Neptune have actually been very good boats for me, though Seattle was helped by having a 14 pt IFHE cruiser captain ready and waiting to be put on her right away, I can see how she'd suffer without IFHE to give her some alpha at T9.

 I think much of the Izumo hate comes from how she was a couple of years ago combined with getting used to the all-forward arrangement. I've seen time and again how people think the Nelson layout would make a huge difference, having both + Lenin, believe me, it isn't as big a difference as many think. Izumo's reputation will likely never fully recover from the early issues, much like the M-16's reputation is still hampered by the issues it had in Vietnam (which were due to lack of training, iffy ammo, and possibly sloppy manufacturing in the rush to get the guns out of the doors of the factory after production ramped up).

Izumo and FDG are both okay now. Azuma and Seattle might be the worst but they're not that far from being alright.

I agree with OP. Seattle is a horrible experience. You have to rely on red's bad play for you to do well in a Seattle.

Izumo is monster after the recent buff to its sigma, definitely #1 pick from TT bbs. FDG also received buff to reload and now she is a beast in competitive game modes where there is less players.

FDG was actually one of the top 5 performing ship regardless of the classes in the last season when they hosted tier 9 ranked.

If it was just a little bit faster it would be a monster.  Faster turret traverse, rudder, speed.

Of the ships I currently have, I'd have to say my least favorite right now is Seattle. But she's still new to me at this point so that may easily change.

Also, I pick Seattle despite owning crowd unfavorites like FDG, Izumo, and Neptune(all three of which I liked enough to put permacamo on).

Didn’t mind the Seattle in T9 ranked. All I did was focus on supporting the DDs capping and killing one enemy DD (radar and high rate of fire). After that it was just fire starting and hoping to get another DD. I ranked out quickly and the short games, coupled with XP boosting flags and camo made the grind fairly painless.

The FDG was the first ship I had to free XP through and I’m glad I did as the GK is a riot.

I opened this thread with the single intention of claiming that Seattle is that ship, in my experience.

I did very good with the Izumo before its buffs, was good with Neptune as well, but I can't seem to get a win with the Seattle. Some of its bad luck or just a poor team but man I just horrible in Seattle, last couple of month I have had a win rate in the low to mid 60s but in the Seattle 28% lol

Didn't care for the Seattle too much.  Took a bit of getting used to after playing the other USN cruisers.  Not sure if it's the worst tier 9 in the game, but it felt like it to me. 

I liked the Izumo and FDG much more than the Seattle, and to be honest, I don't see why people hate them so much. I know why people say they hate them, but I just don't see it.  Maybe it's because I'm a pretty sucky player compared to those saying they hate those 2 ships, lol.

Truthfully, I find that premium T9 ships are more fun to play than any of the less fortunate tech tree brethren.  I did keep all of my tech tree T9s for snowflakes and such, but I don’t take them out at all.  Although, I must admit that those T9 soviet destroyers were rather fun, maybe I should revisit them.

Izumo was my first T9 in the game. That was nearly 4 years ago, I still have yet to get my Yamato and I have 7 or 8 T10s at this point. It has the least rewarding guns of any ship I have ever played. They might as well just spray confetti.
