My second forum post:
I play World Of Warships because i love ships of all kinds,when i was young me and my father used to make and sail model ships,i was 5 when we made
our first one together.
My ten cents and almost entirely from co-op play,by the way i am nearly 70 so co-op is great for me,reactions not really good enough for much else.
I have tried random,but when your my age-well,co-op can be fun.
The Mikasa is more a collector ship than a true front runner and can deal with bots pretty easily.
She is my favourite tier 2 ship and i got her for about 4 euros.
I would never take her into a random match if i had the skills all you youngsters have.
I treat her for what she is a port queen and bot killer where she excels.
I have managed to kill t3 BB bots with her and for an old guy with arthritis i think thats pretty good.
There are plenty of other ships you can use if random is your game,but very few look as good as the Mikasa..
However i can see why you would want to buff her.
I would fix the damned awful turret rotation.Feels as if the turrets are hand cranked like a tiger tanks turret.
