I've been looking at the premium Black ships (30% cheaper than their normal counterparts), and wanted to ask which seems the most profitable. Any idea?

If you mean which will earn more - neither. All of them are t8 premiums, so all of them earn about the same.

 

 

Which ship would be best for you? Again - neither.

Your highest silver ship is just tier 5, you are not experienced enough to actually play at tier 8. All 4 of them are like nothing you've played before.

Even your highest premium - Scharnhorst - despite having a good WR over a decent number of battles, if I look at other stats it's immedeately visible that the WR comes from good luck rather than actually good performance.

You'd be nothing more than an anchor dragging your teams down, and that doesn't sound like fun neither for you, nor for the other 11 unlucky players who happened to be in a team with you

Your Scharnhorst synergizes well with the Tirpitz in terms of commander training, especially if you grind the German BB line. The Massachusetts is better at plane kills which can give you additional XP and money, in a CV match, but has no "fun with torps" factor. A DD makes less money. Atago is a cruiser, very different fron the ships you have experience with.

The boring answer is: whatever you do most damage in (silver income is mostly dominated by damage done). If you're good with BBs, Asashio/Atago probably won't perform as well, whereas Tirpitz/MA will suit a BB meister better.

 

Personally, I dig DDs, so the best earner for me is usually Asashio by a large margin, whereas someone who is excellent with Bismark would probably generate more silver with Tirpitz, and so on.

 

Something to have on your radar if you're considering buying one of these things: at the moment, your average tier in randoms is 3.9 (although your most played BB is Scharnhorst) - a lot of players on here will feel strongly that dropping into T8 randoms (especially with the current MM) is unwise. If you agree with that view, perhaps get one that works especially well in Coop? Tirpitz, although the classic 'noob' premium, might do a useful job for you - it plays similarly to Scharnhorst, and works with a similar captain build...

 

I would avoid Asashio - it'll teach you all sorts of bad habits early in your DD career; Atago is a pretty good cruiser, but there is a good chance you'll be so out of your depth in her that the fish have lights on their heads (sorry to be blunt, but T8 cruiser play is very unforgiving, even with Atago's torps and heal); MA is, by all accounts, fun and a decent shorter range BB - however, I would still avoid as she is generally felt to need a specialised captain for her.

Can the Black ship variants change camos?

They should be able to

Can the Tirpitz B fit Mangu-S camo?

Don't think so, probably no

Just watched some german guy open black containers on youtube and he showed Tirpitz Bs camo selection. It seems you can mount standard camos in it but the black camo was the only perma-camo :(

Truth is, i've been playing the game longer than you guys think. How long? Around 4 years i suppose. I just took some pauses. It is true: my CV and Cruiser career lacks experience, but i've grown into DDs and BBs. I know the Tirpitz, her strenghts and weaknesses, just like i  know my Scharnhorst.

Ah, this account is a reroll, or you have a separate account on another server?

 

In which case, go for it...

Fair enough. I would still go with Tirpitz though - captain works well with Scharnhorst captain (and Gneis/Bismark), and won't need a unique build compared to the silver line (unlike MA).

 

I stand by previous remarks apropos Atago, and T8 DDs face a significantly nastier environment than T6s at the moment (mainly due to the prevalence of radar), so avoid Asashio.

This is all terribly solemn and traditional; it's kind of the WG equivalent to the circle of life:

  1. Inexperienced player asks which top tier premium is the best.
  2. Experienced players all grimace, remembering when they did the silly thing and bought a too-high tier premium (mine was the IS-6 FWIW).
  3. Experienced players elucidate, with varying degrees of tact, why inexperienced player should hold off.
  4. Inexperienced player ignores advice and does it anyway.
  5. Inexperienced player predictably gets donkey handed to them. Repeatedly.
  6. Metaphorical years pass, and inexperienced player eventually gets experienced.
  7. Cycle repeats...

It's quite beautiful really (in a bleak sort of way) - like those baby ducks leaping off a cliff in David Attenborough, surviving the plummet (some of them), and promptly getting leapt on by Arctic Foxes. Circle of life, man...

The only thought I had about these Black Ships is that their Camo looks impressive - WoWS knocks the 'look' out of the park, no doubt.

Will I get suckered to buy these Lollipops? No.

Massachusetts. The newest and  probably strongest ship there.

 

T8 is still very harsh to play so don't jump straight into it.

Woopee! Can we smell 'desperation'? Even at 30% less, not interested in supporting a game that screws 25% of the available classes of ship (CVs anyone? Not now)

If you want a black boat I d (and I did) take massa, its the most different from its techtree cousins (secondaries, short heal recycle) so imho it "adds most value" and should do ok in coop as well if you go credit farming since you can run it with free consumables there without much issue and aa, sec fires and 9 16 inchers are all good for blapping bots

Unless you take ships like Texas and Kidd...
