A Premium Carrier like Kaga. you can literally just throw planes away and you will still be able to do damage

All ships takes a certain amount of skill - no matter what you have read in the forums or see people spew in chat.  As Taichunger says - any of them can be driven but to do well and be a good teammate - takes a bit of skill to know what to do in any given ship.

Anything with a big flat deck where the gun turrets should be.

Low tier ships in general. It's by game design. Less gimmicks, small maps, close engagements.

CV

You help your team by spotting, you don't have to care about planes so long as you aren't dumb and you are the only ship that can touch any spot of the map with pure impunity so long as you are smart with your planes. Also the most frustrating class in the game rn other than radar cruisers with stealth radar.

Massachusetts.

Some of the most accurate secondaries in game for starting fires on big ships and chewing on small ones.

Small size creates less of a target and easier maneuvering.

One of the top torpedo belts in game (50%-ish)

Heavy AP rounds for easy citadels.

Decent range.

Fast reloading damage repair party for fixing the misplays made.

IMO,

  1. BB/HC
  2. CVs

Its an open debate as to which one takes the cake... To me, its neck and neck...

To accomplish what?

Damage?  Likely BBs, spam HE at everything and you get damage numbers pretty consistently. At the same time, having enough armour and HP to last a while. 

To win matches? Likely CVs, since as mentioned earlier even just flying like an idiot at the enemy provides spotting for your team, and your ship is nowhere near the fight so you'll live until the end.

While she is rather forgiving, i would caution to say that the secondary build requires a lot of captain points. She is easy to play, but I think a lot of lower tier ships are even easier due to the simpler game mechanics and matchmaking.

I think something at lower tiers or a low tier CV might be fine. Heck, I played 20 games in Langley and did ok, and I despise the carrier gameplay and I suck at playing them. Similarly, T3 Charleston or T4 Phoenix were really simple things to play. Most other lines i skipped the T1-T4, so no Idea about those.

Shrodinger CV, where they are the easiest class to win with but also where a Bad cv player will doom his team.

There isn’t one. The closest that you get is anything sporting high caliber HE rounds with an increase to fire chance or damage. These kinds of ships can stack high damage with impunity as angling doesn’t matter against them and even one or two shells hitting a target can still generate additional fire damage. Even then, most ships of this type have glass jaws, and go down quickly when people shoot back.

St. Louis.  Its Tier III, but its made from guns, and drives like a battleship.

:Smile_amazed: Musashi is a lot of things but easy to play isn't one of them. Unless you define easy to play as sitting as far away from anything red as possible. In that case every ship in the game is equally easy.

 Lion, Conqueror, and Thunderer get my vote for easiest ships to play. Thunderer for range, accuracy and insane HE damage/fire chance. Lion and Conq for the HE damage/fire chance and portable shipyard Repair Party. Nelson would be in the mix except she doesn't have great range and being T7 she can be overmatched by every BB above her and a large number of T6's.. and thats a big fat nose.

Smolensk, followed by Kremlin, Slava, and Stalingrad. Every time you pull the trigger on any of them is like pressing ctrl+alt+delete on someone else's ship.

For the record, I STRONGLY advise that you not buy whatever ship you're thinking of. There's only one reason why anyone would post a question like this and the answer never does anything to improve the game.

Definitely cv as a whole. Enterprise, haku, kaga are the easiest ships in the game to play. For bb's its definitely the conqueror and thunderer
