  1. Best Aviation Battleships are actually Hyuuga and Ise, Yamashiro and Fusou are really weak. Hood is still one of the best Battlecruisers. Best Heavy Cruisers are Roon and Portland, Choukai should be in it as well. And Jintsuu should be in the list of best light cruisers (actually she’s the strongest of all CL). Washington should be in the list of best Battleships.

  2. Very poorly made list, cannot recommend. I know AL has lots of cute girls but with summaries this short it’s best to not mention how cute/badass you think a ship looks since that takes up space for analysis, which is bare bones as it is. In addition some descriptions don’t fully explain why a ship is good (e.g. Saratoga), miss the point for why a ship is considered strong (Yukikaze), or are outright wrong about skill descriptions (Tirpitz being the biggest offender). Just a tip: Talk about skill barrages where applicable, how skills support the fleet in terms of damage or survivability, and the ships’ strengths and weaknesses (e.g. Ayanami has the best burst damage in the game but has to sit on weak guns in-between skill barrage and torpedo cooldowns).

  3. WOW no hood for BC? Maybe you had no idea abt the monster meta before in the jp sand chinese servers.
    No Enterprise? This post isn’t really reliable.

  4. This is the worst list I’ve ever seen. No Hood? Seriously? Not only are suggestions off, but calling waifus ‘it’? While ships in reality are inanimate objects, this is a game with personified characters.

  5. No Befast, no Prince of Wales… there are some others missing, but these surprised me the most. My Belfast is rockin’ it on the battlefield!!
