This is the internet there are opinions a plenty! :P

 

Pick ones that will help you.

e.g.  USN for USN crew trainers. IJN for IJN crews and so on.

Pick ones that suit your play style.  If you don't like BB's don't by the prems!  Same goes for CA/CLs and DDs.

Yeah I lost a full squadron of Db's last night for the first time now with the new patch and all. The buffs from within the 2km radius for AA of ships makes them deadly. 3 planes survived the run in to drop, but none made it out.

(Tier 9 USN DB's 7 per squadron, I think).

But that's good news for BB's.

 

Look at your end game and what nation you want to play, the premium ship really helps get those 5 skill Captains.

Id go with the Murmansk for a premmie. Tier 5, gets good battles options and it can dish out high damage, earn lots of credits and you can rotate russian captains through it for some more training.

Manly tears if a Nagato citadels you.

 

Thats why i love to play (Premium) Tier 7 , they powerful enough to take on Tier 9 able to seal club tier 5-6 and not usually meet Tier 10 (except someone create a troll div and you unlucky enough to get pull in to that match) :great:

If I buiy a RU ship, do their captains transfer to toher ships, or only RU ones?. Cos I dont like the RU lineup. Kind of focusing on USN for now but there are no ships for USN that I will pay for.

Premium ships can only be used to train captains of the same nation as the ship.

It a good chance you will fail at playing Texas judged by you barely have 100+ battles on Wyoming nor New York so what make you think you could handle USN BB well with such inexperienced and if you hate New Mexico that mean something is wrong with you.

For a premium ship, its best to decide on base on your ship preferences and playstyle. Also nation , if ur gonna use it to train your ship crews too. If youre more into credit grinding with those premium ships i will recommend premium ships from tiers 5-8 as there good at credit making. But again for the choice just based it on your preferences , the premium ships on that tier range are fine ships  and can do well too. Alternatively you can use that doubloons for premium acc which increases exp and credit gain on your regular ships

lol everyone likes different things. I am looking for a DD, but sadly the JP/NA dont have one.

Might look at Atlanta, so I could get my skills up for Gearing later on......

What you mean IJN/USN don't have a decent DD, both nations have it own specific advantage it just up to you whether wanna play it only.

No, I was saying I was after a USN DD premium. But they dont have one. SO I am after something to grind with for my USN captains.

Correct there are no premium DD's for IJN or USN in the tech tree right now.

 

But collectors package ships for the next 3 days:

 

IJN DD - Tachibana $7.75 AUD

USN  DD - Smith $8.31 AUD
