While I see a Roma occasionally it's been years since the last time I saw one with the Schlitz beer can on top.

Gee, I wonder why that is.

The only Neustrashimy I have seen last year is mine :Smile_hiding:.

I only have seen one Neustrashimy since they were released.  Sank it, too... But can't really say thats a ship I never see anymore, as thats a ship I never saw period.  For ships I don't see anymore, I would say Roma is getting pretty scarce and Gascogne is a myth these days.  I have both, but haven't touched Gascogne in ages and Roma I play less and less because its so aggravating to play.

I got a Roma and that camo. It's just when I sail it, the drunk players rub up on me trying to grab the can. Some of them swear in Italian, others just want to get frisky because I am the beer BB.....

It's not beer, it's an ornament.

How come you don't play the Gas Can anymore? I know nothing about her.

Imagine a Republique without the overmatch, reload, alpha, with even worse accuracy.  BBs live and die by how good their guns are, and outside of Gascogne's nice handling its pretty much an awful ship.

I got one, played it 2-3 times, then silently nodded and never looked back again.

There are plenty of awful ships/premium ships in the game that WG neglects.  The truly funny part?  Someone will bust in here and go "bUt sERveR avERaGEs sAY iTs FiNE" which is truly ironic, because the whole spreadsheet memes are literally about this very... braindead mentality.

 When I sail my Krasny Krym every one asks me if it's a test ship, same goes for my Poltava.

Yeah well the Krasny has a reputation for being just god awful and the Poltava, well the Lenin was already available so why buy a tier 7 premium when you can get a tier 8 premium for a fraction more...can understand why those two aren't very popular.

I was wondering who got one. ...

Not much interest in Stalingrad or Bourgogne, Black and Flint were indifferent at the time, so Neustrashimy seemed like an interesting choice that can consistently farm Dreadnoughts.

Yukikaze is probably one of the rarest one to see... The only time I see one is when I'm feeling massochist enough to sail mine into 12km radars and Midway Tiny Tims with her 8km torps and 9km guns... Such amazing little ship that gets outranged by all radars except Salem's and Atalanta's... 

Even Vs Tier 6 ships any other Tier 8 DD would do better simply because if you miss your torpedos, you have to wait a stupid amount of time to get them back despite being short range weapons...

Also... What's the point on the Type 3 torpedos when French torpedoes exist? Almost same speed, also high damage but the French ones reload way way faster and they all have more launchers so more fishes in the water... Kebler can be played as a pseudo Benham with insane firepower while playing Yukikaze, Yugumo or Shima with those torps is almost for extreme massochists only...

I have my Arkansas as a really beautiful port queen. If I ever get her out for a sail, I will invite you all to the barbeque held on deck. BYOB. Bring your own beer.

Krasny is not awful at all. Play her strengths and you piss off a lot of BBs...lol. DDs also don't like getting within 10 km of it either.

I couldn't find any Harekazes or Montpeliers, Missouris, Flints, Nelsons, or the recent Journey to the West ships. Also, the Kutuzov looks like it practically disappeared, like the Belfast (which only appears in Ranked for some reason).

Kamikaze. Who wants to play a ship dependent on concealment with an aa raring of 1 (or is it 0) against 2 cv?
