I want to take this opportunity to thank you @LittleWhiteMouse for all the work that you put in to the reviews, I have read each and everyone one of them including those that date back to 2015. Each and everyone of them is very insightful and a joy to read, even though I don't buy 99% of the ships that you review (as I'm free to play), they have helped greatly in determining to play against them. It is a great shame to hear the events that transpired during Yukon's creation and development and you and Chobittsu have my condolences. For me Yukon is just WG's failed attempt at making a replacement for HMS Nelson and it is a great shame that new players will not be able to get their hands on her.

Yukon is in the wrong half of this list for a Royal Navy battleship.  Like Hood, she's not a good fire starter and you'll struggle to set more than a single perma-fire if your opponent's Damage Control Party isn't already taxed.   These are the raw fire-per-minute value and do not take into account the fire resistance of a given target.  Against most ships in Yukon's matchmaking, the actual chance of setting a fire will drop by about 30% to 50% depending; so pretty terrible overall, especially once you account for dispersion too.

Look at that smug a.f. King George V burning people up!

Thank you both for all of your incredible work. I’m happy to support your patreon and as a whale who was looking forward to buying a new premium I can promise that WG will not see a dime from me for the Yukon. If I get it in a crate I will sell it back for credits. I hope that you both recover quickly from this.

Also, thank you tiny, fierce Mouse for the meat of the Wiki article.

Fun fact:  I've been dealing with this crap for the last couple of weeks.  When was my vacation supposed to start again?

Shouldn't there be a line about hanging aristocrats from the lanterne somewhere? :cap_haloween:

Well, that's a bit of a slap in the face, isn't it?   Seems WG'ing is staying true to form.

I learn a good bit from reading these reviews and really appreciate them .  For what it's worth, thank you both for all your efforts and your hard work.

Yea but I didn't wanna use that verse, I'm already in enough trouble with the law. I just needed a recognizable revolutionary tune and these verses are more fitting.
I don't hate Weegee for what they did, I'm just REALLY disappointed...   lesson learned; keep your expectations rock-bottom and you'll never be made the fool

Yukon, the Tanky-Cruiser?  :-)

Reminds me of a mini-Alsace.

Thank you for the review @LittleWhiteMouse and @Chobittsu.

Oh well.  "Mush Malemut!  Savoir-Faire is everywhere!"

Perhaps the @LittleWhiteMouse will catch a Klondike Kat?  :-)

Cleaning up angry-ranty-incoherent Mouse-babble and replacing the unnecessary snark with implied snark

Edited to add:  When I first wrote this, it was late at night on a Thursday, and I'd only been able to read the first thirty-percent of LWM's review before my eyes began closing and I went to bed.
Today, Saturday 06-26-2021, I've read the rest of the review along with Chobi's contributions.

I'm sad & disappointed that a solid opportunity was lost and people's feelings hurt in ways I can only imagine.

I remain grateful for @LittleWhiteMouse's devotion to her ideals, hopes and principles.
So, too, for @Chobittsu.
I offer my sympathy, incomplete understanding, and best wishes for a better future for you both.

Thank you @LittleWhiteMouse for all of your hard work and for the effort you put in to try and make something interesting and fun. 

I am definitely a whale when it comes to ships in this game, and before I make any decisions I always read your reviews to get some valuable insight into what I'm buying. I am very glad that I read this review, because being a Canadian and a BB main, I was already set on purchasing this ship when it came out.

I will not be picking this ship up, not any more, for whatever little that's worth.

of course WG made a disappointing ship out of it, thats what WG does nowadays, disappoint people, one need not look further than the last few line releases that were all basically seen as "meh" at best

Thanks Mouse And Chobittsu, I'll add this one to the list of a ships not worth the time or money,
WeeGee has become so lazy and greedy, they just keep churning out chum and hoping all the fish are blind and hungry.
Such a shame!

Sorry to hear this.  I had high hopes for this ship.  We can all pray for a last minute buff or two, but it seems doomed.

+1 for the review and fighting to get her in game.

Thanks for the all the hard work Mouse and Chobi. I can't imagine how frustrating and disappointing of an experience that must have been, and yet you had the class to still try and write an objective review -- even with the bias disclaimer.

If WG ever wants to wake up and right the list that the game is on, and change the toxicity of the player-base.... this sort of experience is exactly what NOT to do. As you said: an excellent opportunity for them, WASTED. Sure glad I picked up Haida & Nelson before... this. First ever forum post. I only own a couple premiums. I won't be purchasing any more ANYTHING with real funds until I see that they don't intend to wreck this potentially excellent game.

Thank you both.  Reading about your efforts during the creation process was fascinating.

Yukon will not be joining Haida in my Port.
