So I have been using WoW since open beta I have been waiting a year. Despite it being an obvious slog would like opinions on the following. Even some thoughts on this V that if you can.

 

Best Battleship - New Mexico (so I have heard)

Best Carrier - None so I have heard :)

Best Cruiser - The Humble St Louise (Only because it just pores out the hits and is bad to be on the end of in that regard). However I have heard the Kuma rocks but have not bought it yet.

Best Destroyer - Minekaze because this brute can get in real close and snipe off just about anyone. I have dealt more death in this than anything.

 

I will add here I am working my way through tier 5 to 6 and not highly experienced but would like to hear thoughts.

PS Please keep it a personal opinion and not a slag fest if you can :)

Best Battleship - New Mexico (so I have heard) <-- any they all sink to torps

Best Carrier - None so I have heard :)  <-- all sink to torps

Best Cruiser - The Humble St Louise (Only because it just pores out the hits and is bad to be on the end of in that regard). However I have heard the Kuma rocks but have not bought it yet. <-- Cleveland or Mogami HE spam cannons

<-- Gearing

Unless you specify what tier you're referring to, the best ships will always be tier 10, and I'd imagine very few people on this forum have any, so realistically no-one is experienced enough to talk about tier 10 balance at the moment, hence nobody here can give an accurate answer

Best Battleships: Wyoming, New Mexico, North Carolina/Iowa/Montana, Amagi

Best Carrier: Most players scream about IJN carriers being OP. IJN carrier players complain about USN carriers. USN carrier players have no idea what IJN carriers are complaining about.

Best Cruiser: CLEVELAND. And yeah, Des Moines and Mogami. And St Louis, I guess.

Best Destroyer: Minekaze is a demonic spider. Though the Clemson is p. cool too.

Best Girl: Kongou, and I will fight you if you say otherwise.

For cruisers, I'd say Cleveland, followed by Kuma, Omaha, and St. Louis.

 

For a nimble cruiser like Kuma, you can effectively harass a lone BB who's strayed too far from the rest of his team. You can keep him burning with continuous HE shots, while constantly changing speed and bearing so that he can't land a good shot on you. The BBs fear the Kuma.

I just got into a  Jap CV, and I have fully upgraded fighters, yet they are always owned by USA fighters of same tier in a one vs one fight.

 

Tenru is a very nice easy grind, pity it's over so fast!.

 

Best map: two brothers.

For me (I've seen most of them in NA, though):

Best BB: Iowa-class (406mm Mk.8 Superheavy Shell & +30kn Speed = Perfect Cruiser Hunter)

Best CV: Lexington-class (at least from my perspective)

Best CA: Des Moines-class (Autoloader 203mm + CIWS-style AA Gun, no need for torpedo tubes)

Best CL: Cleveland-class (Death by a thousand cuts, or fires, at least)

Best DD: Minekaze (Invisible ship)

Best 3

Battleship: New Mexico, Kongo, Wyoming (still haven't tried high tier BB's)

Carrier: N/A (only got up to independance in CBT, IJN still haven't bothered)

Destroyer: Clemson, Minekaze, Benson

Cruiser: Cleveland, Mogami, Myoko

 

I'm more into USN ships, but the IJN cruisers are really good in my opinion
