So I'm old, a plus 55er...

Originally from California,  now living in Iowa....

When I was 18 I met my future,(current) 2nd wife in Oklahoma. 

So you ask WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH World of Warships?

When I first started playing Closed Beta, I noticed a tier 5 US battleship the New York, my wife's home state.

Today I purchased the premium cammo for her so I have to keep her.

Like I said earlier,  I live in Iowa.... tier 9 US battleship...  yes premium cammo for her too....

My best Clan Battle ship? You guessed it, Des Moines.... premium cammo and legendary UU...

This year California released... I resisted for a month...  nice ship...

And this morning o finally have her, the Oklahoma...

I have lived in Alaska,  New Mexico, Michigan and Nevada....

Wargaming has 2 more opportunities to get money from me....

Great Job WG on California & Oklahoma....

Oklahoma is a nice looking ship but one of my worst BBs. Played her twice now she's parked permanently.

I live in Missouri.

I kept St. Louis, also.  I still have Saint-Louis, too, even though that's weird.

I would like Michigan too, lived there quite a while. But I don't see that happening. There's only one, an old Florida class dreadnought, similar to the Wyoming IIRC. Not exactly high priority. Still, never say never.

Nevada I would expect at some point, that ship has some unique points, not to mention history.

I lived in Hawaii for a dozen years. I think it would be great to have the USS Honolulu (CL-48 Brooklyn Class) in game.

I lived in Indianapolis - have her.

in New Orleans - have her.

in Pensacola - have her.

in Texas - have her.

in North Carolina - researched her.

Been to Perth - have her.

to Pearl Harbor (of course) so have Missouri and Arizona.

My sister is a witch - have Salem.

I guess I am quite cosmopolitan!

Yes Nevada has history,  I'd expect her to be a premium of the refit. Huge AA and long range secondaries.

Sister comment +1.

1- would be nice.

2-Santa gave me her.

3-good CA

4- I love pepsi and vacations in Florida, but no way in H... did I keep that ship.

5-have both support cammos to help save her, NY class had to buy it.

6-great ship, love her.

7-since the Air Force let me creep around Sydney,  bought her too...

8-flew to Hawaii at least 200 times, been to Pearl once, ditto on both ships.

9-don't know your sister, so I spent my coal on other ships...

I thought I was well-traveled, having seen several places in the army, until "grandpa and grandma" started taking my nieces with them on their trips. Those little rats were hauled from Hawaii to Hamburg and from Calgary to the Caribbean. It's not like the folks were rich or anything either, being retired schoolteachers, but they sure doted on those grandkids.

If ships were necessary to remember where I have been then I would not be able to afford wows.

Ok, it seems she doesn't fit almost anybody who commented about her LOL.

I've played many ships over the years and she happens to be at the top of my worst BBs list. Find me anything positive about 19km top speed, 60 sec turret traverse and 40 sec reload.

When I first bought the Le Terrible everyone was complaining how weak she was . Pretty sure I found a way to make her work , lol . My point was , the man just bought a ship do not kick him in the balls , CMON man . You are better than that . You new her speed and turret traverse before you got the ship right ?

When we hear you croaking in battle chat, we'll know she reads the forums.

I have visited the geographic locations of Perth, Fiji, London, Edinburgh, and I think I might have visited Gorizia once (it was a while ago). 

I have stood on the decks of the Belfast and the soon-to-be-Vampire II.

I have visited Alaska, but don't have the ship. Within Alaska I have specifically visited Juneau, which is one of Atlanta's sister ships. (Alas, I have not been to Anchorage.)

I have visited California and Rome (Roma) but I don't have or want the ships. 

The closest I've got to the Haida Gwaii is Vancouver, but although I have the ship in game, I haven't visited the real thing (that was going to be a thing before this stupid virus came along and "fourteen days to flatten the curve" became what we have had ever since).

Those are the first ones that come to mind right now.
