I am a huge fan of battleships, I pretty much only play battleships (to be honest I can't play any other classes at all). So far, New York and New Mexico felt vastly superior to me than Kongo and Fuso, I was pretty frustrated with Fuso actually. Got tired of getting penetrated from every possible angle. At tier 7, I finally liked Nagato a lot more than Colorado, however, I only played small number of games. I unlocked Amagi, still haven't bought her though. But from my experience of test server, NC feels a lot better than Amagi because I play aggressive battleship.

 

What are some great battleships that you guys keep in ports? I need to sell some for credit and empty slots, so just wondering. May be I'll sell Fuso.

On the Russian server, a lot of fans of the battleships left "Fuso" in the port to continue the game on it and earn game money. + Pumped captain.
"AMAGI" Battleship suitable for aggressive play in divizion.I have to maneuver very well, so as not to take unnecessary damage!

Sorry for the Google translator :)

I would say Kongou but with the amount of ARP versions of her now, shes in the sell category. Unless of course, you're not a fan of all the anime.

Fusou and New Mex seems to be the next best imo since you can "shotgun" and somewhat snipe pretty successfully with them.

Wyoming, New Mexico, North Carolina on the US side, every single IJN battleship from tier 5 with the exception of Izumo. Pick your poison.

I do not play under tier 4 at all. I have heard only good things about Fuso, but I totally sucked with it. I found it very hard to deal damage with Fuso, while I am among the top 25% average damage dealer for New Mexico. But I kept Fuso so that I could give it another try. I can barely manage time to play now-a-days because of work, probably not going to happen.

 

For so many ARP ships, Kongo and Myoko are now not needed. I am hardly a fan of all these anime stuffs but I don't pass on them cause I am a ship (non-tech-tree) collector.

 

Now I have: Amagi, Tirpitz, Nagato, Colorado, Fuso, New Mexico, ARP Kongo Inc.

I want to have: Texas, Warspite, NC, Iowa, Montana, Yamato.

 

I played like 50 battles in test server in Montana, and I felt really good about it.

For some reason the only non-premium BB that leaves an impression to me are the Amagi and North Carolina only. The others doesn't really give me a lot of good memories. :unsure:

 

Yamato and Montana is a matter of course, though. Why wouldn't you keep tier X ships anyways...

Sad to here that you didn’t make in the Fuso, it’s one of the best, range, 12 guns firepower and speed. Yes you can tank in the New York, New Mexico and a little bit with the North Carolina but not in the Iowa or above tiers. If you tank at tier X, cruisers will burn you down before the Yamato can blow you out of the water.

Once you have master the throttle, rudder and the dodge (which you can’t do in the New York, New Mexico – too slow and what I have found out in the Iowa - dodging) the Fuso can become a real force to reckon with.

USN BBs upto Lolorado has very good turning radius, and good concealment rating. Good AA as well, that means less chance of being targeted by CV early on. I usually play front line BB, and may be that's why didn't do well in Fuso. From my experience, Fuso cannot take damage if MM puts her in T7 or T8 matches, which is the most common case. USN BBs are generally better brawler. Well I have like 61% wr in Fuso, but that is team's credit, I barely contributed.

Well nothing wrong with that but i think keeping ship have to be distinguish over other otherwise you just keeping all ship :D:D:D

 

My list will be

- New Mex

- Nagato

- Amagi (i prefer North Carolina but Amagi is just better)

- Iowa

- Yamato/Montana (1 or both is ok but i suggest Yamato to save ur sanity lol)

Really worries about up coming German BBs, im afraid i need 5 more slots :(

I never have Yamato myself but Montana is clearly more fun to play, who doesn't like 12 guns :trollface:
