Ship you dreaded seeing on your team in Ranked

Now that Ranked is almost over,  I wanted to see everyone's take on the ship they most dreaded having on their team. 

For me, it was the Khab. Seriously...why would you take the least stealthy DD in the game into Ranked, knowing that your team will be facing Shimas and Gearings?

I would also add certain clan tags horrified me. And with good reason. . And in many cases I was shocked at how poorly clan members of clans that I assumed were good and played very well....played.

Smolensk. They camp smoke, their only vision utility is hydro which is usually used selfishly(and if it isn't...), and frequently they either get instantly annihilated by something or spend the whole game a million miles away in the back and are totally useless.

Any battle w/IfYouSeeKhaos...whenever he was on my team I knew serious derping was guaranteed.

I know...name & shame is not allowed...but that guy...jeez

Very much this. Shocked is the exact phrase I would use when some clans' reputations just did not match reality. As to ships, I disliked seeing Kleber, Yueyang, Salem, and Zao. They fit the meta very poorly. FWIW I played Smolensk and did quite well, so I have a bias towards ships that would spot/smoke.

Shimakaze and Yoshino

 

Shimakaze is pretty obvious, no real gun power + high probability of being a below average player = one less DD for your team in most cases

Yoshino: Basically because it's a extremely poor Thunderer with teamkilling only torpedos. I dread it because while the enemy gets all the Stalingrad's, our team basically has something as fragile as a Minotaur but with zero utility and higher probability of landing torps on allies than on enemies

I got to rank 5 with a 55% wr in khab, avg dmg 71.4k. I saved a star 11 times. I typically crushed other DDs, made life miserable for BBs and positively melted most cruisers with IFHE. The worst games I had were vs a well played Smolensk on my flank (or a smart Zao) in combination with a Stalingrad/Moskva or the rare, smart Hindenburg. Henri, Des Moines, Mino, Wooster, Salem, average Hindy's did not enjoy being on my flank.

Haragumo was the worst to see. Hindy, too. Nothing wrong with Hindy, but there are very, very few good players that took Hindy in, from my experience. Somers was rare, but very often awful.

I had a 100% WR this season ... admittedly I only played 1game but hypothetically it’d be the ship captained by the the deuce that started with “I hope this team isn’t as bad as all the last ones etc,etc, blah,blah,blah!!” and then was 1st to die and spend the rest of the game blaming and chat spamming!

Yoshino. Very squishy and easy to citadel. Bad concealment compared to zao. Yoshino has no team support utility at all. I ran a mix of Bourgogne, Conqueror, and thunderer until I got enough steel for Stalingrad at rank 4, and then used her almost exclusively to rank out. Did it 155 games and 59% winrate.

Smolensk (made worse after ifhe rework) but yoshino's and haragumo's bummed me out as well.

some of those good clans have oil extraction technicians that don't participate in the clan getting its rating .

Yoshino. Why would anyone bring a Yoshino to ranked

Because I think a lot of people that aren't "in the know" so to speak don't understand that part of success at rank is going with the meta, and Yoshino is clearly not the meta this season.

Yueyang.   Pretty much useless when matched against 2-3 destroyers and 2-3 light cruisers.   Especially with that torpedo range upgrade ships can equip

ships did not worry me....

Seeing certain player on my team worry me very much.

I use my black list as a "bad player " marker. SO if i go into a battle and see a orange flag or a few on my team. I know this player under 45 % win rate and super low damage that is bot like.

Smaland and Somers. 

Luckily, I only saw you once in ranked.

That was more than enough.

I hate BBs who buy it four minutes in.

I hate BBs who buy it four minutes in even more when they're SALT FACTORIES.

Ranked just felt off this season. It's just about degenerated to being 7v7 randoms.

I didn't see a lot of the usual ranked suspects this season. Have they quit the game?

WG, please don't make the next ranked T10 or arms race. I realize asking for that likely means you do it anyway because that's how you are.

Pfff.

Seems like a majority of GKs are turds yoloing in to get sunk--- running MMM now so I know ahead of time who cannot be counted on.  Just issue a warning in chat to them and then write them off as unreliable.  Smolensk too -- such a worthless ship

The 40% CV player. Only had five matches with CVs, but in every one the CV was sub-50%. How selfish can you be?

I only started seeing Yueyangs after I made this post, and clearly offended the WG gods enough for them to only put them on my team.

Gks,Yoshino. A well played Khaba or Kleber can make it much harder for the enemy to focus.
