Fen Yang or Orkan? Agir or Mainz? Okachov or Pyotr Bagration? California or Florida?

Just got a nice raise and want some swag from it.

Mainz is a great ship for burning fools plus you don't need IFHE due to Germans getting 1/4 pen to HE shells. Agir is a decent Super Cruiser, think Scharnhorst. Florida is a great ship compared to the new US tech tree line (IMO) kinda an all-rounder, also has great AA.

Fen Yang or Orkan?

I would go with none.

Quote

Agir or Mainz?

Both are good, yet there's alot of praise for Mainz.

Quote

Okachov or Pyotr Bagration?

Ochakov is more of a support cruiser with below average DPM but a nice suite of consumables. Pyotr is tankier, has access to Repair Party and if not mistaken it's 180mm follow the RU CA formulas.

California or Florida?

Some forumers swear by California, but imo it's just an uptiered Arizona.

Here's a screenshot of my Mainz, got to love the 38mm pen on HE and 9.5% fire:

For me, Orkan. Radar dds are a great advantage imo. However I own neither so take this for what it’s worth.

dont own Mainz either but in the smaller brawl setups for t9 she’s an absolute monster and mad fun. Only a few random games played and she is still good there but she’s more of a kiter I’m the early game before you can brawl

Mainz and Agir are completely different ships. One is a firebreathing CL, the other is a supercruiser. Mainz is a lot of fun, especially as German pen doesn't require IFHE.

Florida is IMO better than CA. Some people swear by CA but for me it's just an uptiered AZ. FL can be frustrating with lower AP pen, but the dispersion is epic. Just don't get close, it doesn't have any armor. Come to think of it, FL is probably perfect for the current Deadeye meta.

I've been really lusting after Mainz...and so close to pulling the trigger a bunch of times...Florida guns look amazing...I might have to get Mikasa today for the post rework secondary build though...it looks like ridiculous fun...

Of your list, I only have Mainz ... it's 100% a good and fun ship.  i.e. Yes with cheese on top. 

Fen Yang ... check out LWM's review ... bigggggg no.

By the way Florida has great dispersion (229) plus add Dead Eye to that and you got rail guns, decent speed(for a US BB), good concealment, AA Defensive Fire, Spotter or Fighter.

And in her review, if I remember correctly, she said the Siliwangi was actually a better choice.

@misanthrope0 Sorry I couldn't give you an opinion on Okachov or Pyotr Bagration as I have not played them and I only own like 5 RU ships.

Orkan.

The radar at tier 8 is a huge plus. Additionally there is a decent amount of Ranked battles at tier 8 which makes this a very strong ship.

P. Bagrat is a very nice boat. It lacks radar, but that heal really helps. Take it every day and twice on Thursday over the mini Smolensk.

Mainz is a great boat if you like kiting & burning things

Not a big fan of either DD, but others will likely have a more well informed opinion.

I think the Cali is hot garbage for it's tier, but some love her. Fla is O.K. but I don't care for many US BBs

I have Agir and never play it..... that may say more about me than the boat.

Orkan - it's a multi-purpose torpedo spammer vs Fen Yang's DW torpedoes.

Toss up - do you like big guns or flame spammers.

Pyotr - it seems to hit harder, survive longer, and be less situational.

Florida - it's just more fun. The CA has frustrating dispersion.

I'd go with Orkan (the thing has RADAR), Mainz, and Florida. IDK about the russian ones

Out of all the ships listed Florida and Mainz are both good picks. Orkan could be nice to have if you are interested in competitive. The rest are straight up garbage.

Ok so pulled the trigger on the Pyotr and Mainz got enough feed back and in reviews. The Orkan and Florida I'll hold out for little more feedback on.

Smalland goes away when? I'm gonna look at biting the bullet and converting 1000000 XP instead of getting the Orkan.

By the same token, Florida is a downtiered NC with 14-inch quads instead of 16-inch triples.  Not saying it's a bad ship, but it's not that unique.
