Approaching the required amount of coal for T10. Which ship should I buy? Tend to buy yoshino because I don’t have an IJN trainer yet.

Yoshino

 

 

If you want a tank, Go Georgia

 

Smolensk and Thunderer are not promising tbh.

I rather buy Yoshino/Georgia or even a  Mutsu 1944 (with Triple 16inch main guns) concept for coal than any of the Ships.

I suppose it depend on how you like to play ; slow and methodical, get the BB , like it hot and intense get the Russian , like it just steady ( relatively so ) then get the Japanese

I say: ALL OF THE ABOVE. Actually, I take it back. Smolensk or Yoshinon.

No one has yet to mention about Thunderer? Well yeah don't pick that one unless you're the type of person who follows what the 1 out of 10 dentists do in the Oral-B ads

It really depends on what you like playing. Smolensk is a T10 Kutuzov but better. Yoshino is like a Zao that doubles down on HE spamming at range. Georgia is a T9 Massa except with 6x457's and supercruiser accuracy. Thunderer is a T10 Vanguard except with 457's and also supercruiser accuracy.

There are a lot of different play styles there.  Personally the only one that interests me in any way is Thunderer, but they are all good ships, so really the only way you can go wrong is to pick a ship that doesn't mesh with your play style.

smolensk is the most powerful one of them all by far, but yoshino feels more relaxing to play

I also have the same question so I don need to do another.

I’ve decided to go yoshino for the main reason that I don’t have an IJN premium at the moment. Also it seems the ship is not too bad.

suggest you also decide based on country gaps in premium?

I really really REALLY want to buy Yoshino because reasons, but I need to save any Coal and FXP for Siegfried, whenever she comes out :Smile_unsure:

I doubt that a T9 freemium cruiser would be available for Coal, but...

Spoiler

I will make a Yoshino torpedo build because reasons

I already have Yoshino and refuse to get Smolensk on principle, so my next Coal ship is most likely Thunderer... What the RN T10 BB should have been...

I wouldn't bet on the Smoulderensk in that fight.  I just giggle that mine has 11%fire chance.  Poor battlesheep.
