Unfunny, Braindead, Poor Execution.

Why in the gods name Weegle decided to implement those awful and horrid executed designs in game?

Only thing i see why these things were maded is to increase the ego of the players while farming damage, PR and winrate with no actual counter play

But even being absolute braindead some people still manages to end bottom tier XP, LOL!

Yep it's called "dump half a million credits to take out a ship that maybe will bring you minimum profit for maximum operational costs."

 I think superships is one of those "it looks good on paper" moves. As more & more players acquire them this problem will grow.

You'll fill a pool with credits, dive into it like Scrooge McDuck, yet slam into the solid barrier like Peter Griffin!

Wish I could provide it for you, but I don't have a cell phone, so couldn't record it.

I could share video of Peter Griffin diving into a pool of coins, but Family Guy could potentially violate Forum Rules, and so would rather not risk it.

The Devs have said this many times, they're designed as a credit sink since Tier 10's don't do that anymore. 

I did, early on, swimming in credits, said what the heck and got the Yamagiri.  I don't remember having seen a supership live in the game before that.

As soon as I started my 1st random game people started up in chat and I was embarrassed.  I didn't realize the disdain and I had a target on me like crazy. lol.   I played exactly 3 games and it's been collecting dust ever since.

Now, it's becoming routine.  Had eight, including USA CVs in last few games in my Gearing.  Can't stand it!  Why not just make a T11 or whatever.

So, what now?  What's the prevailing philosophy now?  Do you keep your stupid and powerful supership benched on principle, or do you just say so many other's are playing it why not me?

I love the superships, great for farming dmg on, you get extra credits, especially in a T9 ship, they are always a priority target when I can hit them.  That and the BB's have to be the biggest targets out there, the CA dont seem all that great and the DD I have encountered are not much either.

And I was playing along by proclaiming a lack of Cellphone being on me, thus lacking a video recording device...:Smile_teethhappy:

Why not?... your scruples are commendable but achieve nothing in the big scheme of things. Play and let die.

I played them quite a bit in 'Grand Battles'.

I actually used the Satsuma, Shikishima, and Yamato to re-level Yamamoto to 21 after the Captain Lvl change.

Yes, they can be a pain to face when T9 and even 10, but the XP/credit boost you get for doing alot of damage to the things..............Let's face it, they are there to be farmed.
