Just bought the Visby from the Armory and the transaction complete screen of course shows a big "EXCELLENT CHOICE".

Does the game ever say "THAT WAS DUMB" or "SUCKER"?:Smile_ohmy:

You must not pay much attention to in-battle chat.

Let's put this in perspective. In WG's view it is an excellent choice. After playing the ship you may think "boy! was i duped."

For a tier 5, it’s actually a fun ship.  It doesn’t do any damage, buts it’s till fun for some reason.

A few battles in coop and I tend to agree with you. Maybe shoulda saved the coins and bought flags or premium time.

My question was more in-general though.

Yeah, 

It happens when the ship you just bought at full price goes on sale, gets nerfed or is given away in the next event 

 

 

Bring on the Subs!

Maybe its because I only have 3 pt captain on it but I'm not impressed. Have to give time.

If they quietly put Vanguard or Abruzzi or something there for free, I'd bet nobody would pick it up.

13 Randoms @ 54% with a 3 point Captain so far; YMMV.   Now sporting the 3 Crowns (hidden) permacamo.

Sales 101.  Always reinforce to the customer that the parting of their money was a smart thing.

The tier VI is noticeably better, at least in my opinion. Plus, the chance to earn a permanent camo for a tier VI is always nice if you ever even dip your toe into Ops.

Ishizuchi, only the kawachi has worse dispersion. Mikasa was free. And we all know why.

When Mikasa shoots just two turrets and one shot is bowlegged, while the other sails over the ship like a golf ball hit by a sand wedge, then it's time to make it a secbat build.

Ishizuchi is so bad, I am still dismayed WG still charges for the ship.

I had one, got it back from a crate, and both times sold it.

Never again!

If WG accidentally hands one out from a crate, then call customer support immediately and ask them to swap it for a Musashi as punishment to them.

I would only give one as a gift if I want to enrage that player so much that they hunt me down and beat me with a broom.

You want to ruin your marriage to the spouse that plays this game with you, then I dare you to buy them one. You will get kicked out of the house.

OP it's best to ask clan mates and other experienced players that you are on great terms with, about premium ship recommendations.

Also look up LWMs review on these premiums. They are quite spot on.

Most streamers that use these premium ships are also an indication. Because if they like sailing it, then they are using it a lot. All of them have favorites. It never hurts to ask their opinion too.

Bear in mind, most ships are ideal with certain playing styles.

What you like may not always be what the ship will do.

IMO a fun little ship, i liked Visby. Could be much better if it wasnt for 2-3 CVs most of the battles.

Odd. I quite like her. If T4 wasn't locked out of directives and dailies, I'd probably play her a lot more. She's fast, and she has plenty of guns. She's a baby Amagi, but she is very definitely a battlecruiser rather than a battleship; you have to use her the right way.

Mikasa was free if you were in the game at the right time. Thing is, if you were in the game at the right time then you could get the Warspite for free too (British DD launch event). I didn't pay any money for my Georgia or my Jean Bart either.

That's the price of being top tier against T4, I'm guessing?

I bought the Black for steel at Christmas. You can bet on her being at least 200,000 coal when she comes back, and that's 200,000 coal I won't have to find for her while I'm busy grinding towards Flint and Neustrashimy. In three months, I re-accumulated the coal stocks I'd drained to get Thunderer and Blyskawica at Christmas, to the point where I just got the Georgia without a coupon. By the time the Flint and Neustra come out of down-time, I'll likely have enough to get them both together. Mind you, I personally don't want any of the steel battleships/cruisers or the Somers, so spending the steel on the Black was no problem for me and I'd still do it now for the same reasons. YMMV.

Yes, very true. I was talking about (ahem), "helpful suggestions" from the team in general.

Well, if worst comes to worst, these ships are extra port slots just waiting to happen.
