Yours worst and best premium purchases of the 2020

So as the year 2020 is nearly over let's have a fun. Let WG know what you think is best and worst Premium you could buy during 2020 Annus Horridus. 

 

I'll kick off with my list. I've ordered them from worst to best, because why not to do it the other way round. :Smile_teethhappy: 

 

1. Florida

2. Belfast '43

2. Makarov

2. Ochakiv *

2. Anshan C 

3. London

4. Dunkerque **

4. Diana ***

4. Pyotr Bagration

5. Marblehead Lima 

6. Erich Loewenhardt

7. California

7. Salem C

8. Ägir

9. München

9. Pommern C

 

C - Coal purchase

 

* - Kind of weird WG decided to use pre-revolution, imperial version Ochakov when Ochakiv was official name even during dark days of Stalinism, kind of lame decision considering current tensions. Probably that's the reasons why it's so meh^meh.

** - Repurchased after I've sold it months and months ago during my first stint.

*** - Special purchase I've made because there was a period when CC system was borked and I just wanted to test if PP still works or is that whole store. Diana is very nice ship and very happy with the purchase.

 

One regret, slight, is that I didn't bought Mainz, but on balance in my book PE eats Mainz for breakfast so no biggie. 

 

Can I request an Ägir refund now that it'll become completely worthless secondary ship in 2 weeks time? In two weeks it'll be around Dunkerque. :trollingface:

 

However by far most fun I had with München ($) and Pommern (C). It's irony or what, 3 best premium ships this year are German. What this game has come too????? :Smile_ohmy:

My best i bought so far

Massachusetts - decent us brawler , will be obsolete with commander rework sadly, Guns a re a bit wonky and no aiming system module - great credit farmer tho

Scharnhorst - T VII BB , pretty good at Narai, otherewise nice allround ship , torps have a weird spread sometimes but thats okay also 300mm guns with 20 sec reload . dont have often times when i overpen dds / light cruisers - downside is german dispersion which kinda sucks

Tirpitz - Definitly one of the better T-VIII ships , decent secondaries

Pommern: good secondaries, decent dispersion if you slot aiming system module - torps hit like a truck (Coal)

 

Worst:

Graf Spee : only 6 guns , horrible dispersion, torps sit on back end of the ship, easy to break them with he, only good thing was heal

 

When WG release commander rework , you literally cant play german ships anymore except to ram stuff xD

Best purchases (probably, I may have forgotten something, and in no particular order):

  • Smaland (free xp).
  • Orkan (money).
  • Neustrashimy (tentative - it's still early; fell out of a Satan box).
  • Cossack B (money; basically an S&M Cossack - what's not to like?!).

BTW I define 'best' as being most fun, rather than things that I'm necessarily any good in...

Best acquisition:

Småland: I did not want to pick it up. Execute Order 66 convinced me to get it, and ooh man, this is the new shitt.

Worse acquisitions:

Anchorage: I either win the match doing minimal damage, or lose it doing a fair amount of damage. I decided to not grind for Hizen partly because of Anchorage.

Oklahoma: I shoot at a cruiser at 12km, the shells went all over the place.

Best:

Thunderer? Georgia? Hard decission. I think, I go with Thunderer in the end.

 

Worst:

Technically I think that dubious honor goes to Sims B. But then again, I just bought a package of the 2019 Black Friday containers, for 35? euro, tried my luck to get Alaska B, got her, and the mentioned Sims B and Scharnhorst B. So it isn't a premium that i "purchased". For me it was just a bonus after getting the Alaska.

 

Actual worst boat:

USS Oklahoma. Since I got her for completing the collection, and neither spending of cash or any ingame currency was involved, I can not list her as a "purchase".

I only bought one this year (for coal, does that count?) - the Duke of York. Maybe it's because I currently have the T7 tech tree BB as well, but they're the same except for hydro vs spotter. At which point I wish I'd kept the coal.

I wanted other British/US battleships but thought they were disappearing from armoury very soon and I wouldn't have the coal - so semi panic bought (wanted Georgia) based on the "well, won't get those so may as well just get one".

 

Previous purchases for Doubloons are Hood and Dunk - both of which I love. However, I refuse to pay triple A game prices for a single graphic (at current costs it's mental to me) - let alone collect a ship yard full of them. I'll get premium happily enough though.

Best: Ignis Purgatio

 

I know that it is just an Amagi clone with worse reload and a tiny bit more accuracy, but for me the combination of speed, armor and firepower still works splenid.

 

Worst: Z-39

 

Quite surprising, even for me but the main battery just doesn't provide enough firepower even with an enourmous health pool to back it up. Not that it is a bad ship per se, it is just not matching my playstyle.

Pommern is going to be trash once commander skill rework kicks in. I was about to buy it waiting for discount coupon, but now, no thanks.
Best purchase? Massa, which will also get nyerked with the commander skill rework. It will still be powerful due to half cd on heal, crazy torp protection and hard to hit citadel, just less fun, because of all the things, brawling and secondaries just had to be nerfed.

I think I will include ships which I ‘bought’ through crates in this list. Note that this covers an NA and EU account
 

Best: Lenin (as I have taken Kutuzov out only twice)

Worst: Wukong (the Chinese NY cruiser).

 

Best Free XP: Alaska

Worst Free XP: Nelson

 

Best coal: Georgia

Worst coal: Aigle

 

Best by other (free) means: Jean Bart (thank you Jingles!)

Worst by other (free) means: Mikasa (still fun for the occasional meme game).

 

Most fun: Toss up between Pommern and Jean Bart

 

Morally most repugnant: Toss up between Smolensk and Thunderer.

I've only bought premium days.

The guy above obviously gotta get gud with the Nelson, I've always found it virtually OP but you need to use the super heal.

Untill you encounter BB that heard about overmatch. Then your heal means nothing.

Note that that was for Free XP ships. There I have to choose between Alaska, Smaland, Nelson and Friesland. Between those, Nelson is for me the loser.

So first it's OP and now it isn't? Make up your mind.
