With all the conversation that has been going on, pro/con/indifferent, lately on this topic, I wonder about the ships ON the list. If WoWs said that the only ships that you could play for the next three months were ones on the list, what are the ones you would DEFINITELY pick and which ones would you DEFINITELY not pick?

Santa Crates are a gambling tool, If your looking for a good ship they will not drop until all the bad ships are rewarded.

It is the opinion of many except @Crucis if your looking for a good strong ship buy it directly from the premium store.

Well then I suggest you read about the ships in the WIKI and make your choices don't depend on others to do your work.

I, like the only person to actually answer the question, thought it was an interesting question that would spark lively conversation, not homework.

If the question is which of the 107 are Good, Meh, or Bad, that depends on your own preferences.  I would play any of them, (except Mikoyan and the carriers.)  My top 3 for each ship type:

  1. Missouri
  2. Musashi
  3. Tirpitz 
  • Alaska
  • Atago
  • Prinz Eugen
  1. Benham
  2. Friesland
  3. Fujin/Kamikaze

I might also add Enterprise for historical value, but I don't do CVs

When your entire manner is a combination of “I’m not smart, I’m not going to think on the subject,” then your expectation of either participating in, or of understanding, lively conversation is unrealistic and lazy.

Which list? The false list of 107 ships or the real short list of a few ships?

Of the ships on the "short" list,

I do not have Makarov, ochkovnik or whatever, Vanguard and Viribus Unitis.

A couple days ago, I got a free santa box from armory.

It dropped a super container and I got the Viribus Unitis...

That and Vanguard are 2 of the 4 ships I wanted....

Nuttershimmy and Flint the other 2.

The Unitis was a dream.

2 kills, 127k dam. High caliber and Confederate....

The guns are a dream...

......

So most any free premium ship is worth it.

I only buy the good ones that suit my play for specific reasons. The problem is the steel economy. 40 a day don't cut it when you need 20,000. thats 500 days. Or about 18 months 7 days a week playing 8 hours a day.

1. Don’t have to... further, I know the phrase is properly expressed in writing thusly: “self-deprecating humor.”

2. Maybe I’m exercising “Scarlet_Eagle-deprecating humor.”

I left out the hyphen on purpose just to see how much of a jerk you really are.

I doubt that. It would show a level of initiative that the rest of your participation in this thread suggests you lack.

The conversation has finally gotten lively, because you’re engaged. Yet you appear to be unhappy. You could have engaged before people got dismissive of you.

You should really reconsider what you say want out of a discussion, and reconsider your willingness to be a reasonable participant. If you can.

When to buy Santa Containers?

1. You like the ships on the short lists.

2. You own a metric crap-ton of tier V and VI premium ships.

 

When to PASS and not buy Santa Containers?

1. New players.  If you buy, random boats are likely to be low tier and not as good a value as somebody with those ships already in their dock.

 

In summary, buy for the shortlist and enjoy the extras.  If you are not a whale, buys beyond those shortlist ships will lead to buyers remorse.
