CV has taken that and then some.

I think it was just during that moment in time.

Haven't really seen to many of them around lately honestly. Guess people just play alaska instead?

The Current Hate List is :

1. CVs.

2. BBs camping in the rear

3. Match Maker is broken for random games.

4. Potato's in Ranked

5. WG Reskinning Ships.

 

I think I got the majority of them that I've seen in the forums in the past week.

Whenever I see a Puerto Rico in game, there is usually a hateful comment made toward the ship and/or the player using it.

I really hope WG learned from that disaster.  The Odin dockyard event was much better, so I am hopeful WG won't make the Puerto Rico mistake again...

Yeah to be fair the PR is a rare ship to see ingame and, as Desmo mentions, whenever I have seen one you'll often see players making fun of either the ship or the person asking if they "no-lifed over Christmas or spent $200 to get it...and I'm not sure which of those answers would be worse..."

or

"You know the Alaska costs a lot less and is actually a better ship right? Why waste the time OR the money on that turd?"

I can imagine the few people that have the PR rarely take it out now BECAUSE of the negative feelings throughout the playerbase attached to that ship.

Your list needs to be 8 point. 

Points 1 to 3 are all CV hate.

Between 3 & 4 needs to be radar.

Ahoy mates,

 I play my Puerto Rico quite regularly, and I haven't had any negative comments directed at me since the winter. I did pay full price for it and got it as my Xmas present from my wife (yes, I'm THAT guy), and I do very much enjoy it. I find it to be almost as good as the Alaska and definitely not deserving of the derision that many people still shower on it. I still believe that most of that comes from anger at WG for the PR debacle and the steep price needed to purchase it. 

 People who say it is a "turd" are most likely people who have never played it. Is it as good as the Alaska? Probably not, but the Alaska is a truly exceptional ship, and very few will compare favorably to it. I have both and I enjoy both.

Considering I spent MORE to get ODIN on day 1 than I spent on PR on last possible day.....

I don't getvanyvodin hate.

PR is much better in CB and letting Alaska be the random queen.

My Puerto Rico cost me $67.20 plus a bunch of Co-op games I was going to play anyway. (For the record, Alaska's price is $77.20)

I've never been a point of contention playing mine, but has been discussions close to the event at how poor it was presented.

Nah, just focus fire ingame. No hate, only love. Burning love.

Yup, the Alaska is better. I have the PR as well.. The reason I do not play it much is that it burns, even if a firefly bug lands on it. It is a good boat and, personally, I don't give a damn what the child-like whiners say.

Radar?

Soviet paper ships/bias/unwanted line splits?

 

Or was that the previous week?

Was in mine three battles this morning.  Never got one bad comment.  Or all weekend for that matter.

Puerto Rico has been ingame long enough now and is relatively balanced enough that with its Dockyard fiasco over, and so many new things to gripe over, players only really give minor grumbles over players who have it. I personally have it, but I haven’t played it since the last Clan Battle season, and even then it was until I was able to get the Stalingrad that I used it for its Tier X +1 turret Alaska style play. For a few weeks after getting Stalingrad, I seesawed between them, but now if I want to take a Tier X large/battle/super cruiser out for a spin, I take Stalingrad for its better dispersion and bow tankiness. But despite having a close cousin of it to play with, I don’t take it out much because I’m spending far too much time doing Research Bureau grinding, which Puerto Rico is almost less than useful for. Thus, as a proud owner of the controversial Dockyard prize, I feel that many other owners and random players would agree that Puerto Rico is just one of many issues WarGaming has thrust upon us, and as it is in the past, we don’t really have much to gripe about as we brace for the next crapStorm headed our way.

All in all, it’s a balanced Tier X cruiser that only really has a controversial debut to make it memorable. All that’s left are memories.

Very rarely see the Puerto Rico. When one pops up in randoms I usually see a snarky comment here and there but that's about it. So many more things to annoy people in the game that I would think it's not an issue any more. If people spent the money on it I hope they sail it.

No, I'm sorry; you'll just have to spend $ 265.00 like everyone else!

Honestly the ship could use a buff to armament stats so it matches the guns on Alaska but the ship has such a bad rep nobody would support it.
