  1. My suggestion for the next top 5: Top 5 extinct ships, ships that used to be popular, but now almost nobody plays them.

    • @Sims Elmore yup, makes sense.

    • Durpitz and Atlanta 1 and 2

    • @Áron Győrffy The thing about henry (and to some extent Bourgogne) is that, Marseille can probably do everything a Henry can do, and probably do even better. Sure it doesn’t have the firepower as Henri, but it has much better conceal and maneuverability and is more tanky (against cruisers at least). Marseille’s ap is much better and can usually guarantee you a decisive ap salvo when you get a flank going with your speed boost, even against tier 10 bbs at ~12km range.

      My clan used to love play double Henry in clan battles, but now we just go double marseille + saint Vincent with much better effect and much better ap cross-fire capabilities

    • @Joseph Sun Marseille is just another of those boring sit and tank tip on ships as far as I have seen, like the Petro. Henri is more accurate, I prefer the faster reload and is also a bit faster. Henri DPM is better as well. Got a point though, maybe i will have to play Marseilles more. It felt underwhelming when I had a few games in it.

    • California?
      (Although I use her a bit in ranked, because I am a masochist deep down.)

  2. Hello Sea Lord

    I have an idea for your Top-5 Series. In most (all) your videos you have a 21-point captain on whatever ship you play. How about making a Top-5, presenting the best combinations of Tech Tree ship <-> Unique/Enhanced commander?

    Example the best Russian ship (any tier) for Viktor Znamensky, or best German ship (any tier) for Günther Lütjens.

    For players like me that have a few premium’s (14), a few Unique/Enhanced commanders (4), some tech tree (70) and are grinding through it would be good to have some recommendations.

    Thanks in advance and for the good content, keep on going…


    • Lutjen, Honore, Doe, Halsey and Sansonetti just work on any ship you can think of (Halsey is super good on US tho).
      Kunetsov for Kremlin, Viktor for slow turret traverse ships such as Petro, October Revolution.
      Cunningham for Eagle, Auboyneau for Kleber, Yamamoto for Yamato (free faster turret traverse).

      That should be it.

  3. I am surprised how many ships I have on this list seeing I only brought the Massachusetts – even then I had two discount codes – I tend to save gold from events, missions, ranked and containers and spend it on dockyard builds – my Puerto Rico was 100% free

  4. Thank you for your list Sir. I miss Kamikaze and its clones … 👍 Thank you for the work you do to support the community.

  5. Outside of Enterprise, I’m fortunate to have all five of these ships in my port.

  6. Hi slm
    Thank you for the frequent informative and helpful videos. I wanted to ask you to include in your list a review of DD Blyskawica. Also since I still do not have a 21-point commander, I would appreciate if you could eschew the skills up to 21 point level. Best

  7. Back when dead eye was a thing, Georgia with dispersion mod is the peak of credit farming to me.
    I also try to experiment back and forth with reload mod slot back in dead eye patch, and it still work really fine for me.

    Georgia until this day is still the one of my favorite credit farmer for me.
    The ship is basically a package of gimmick, eveything in that ship is gimmick, and they’re the fun.

  8. One we’ll never see – the Kamikaze/Fujin: from a time before the Japanese torpedo nerf – they’re fast, they’re stealthy.
    With all the power creep, I’d support giving the IJN those old torps back!!

  9. If you see Kamikaze in enemy roster, you know it’s going to be tough game to win.

  10. GC gets chunked from all angles and can sink very quickly. Once you learn to play it more like a cruiser than a BB, you can have great success with her. Definitely my favorite t5 BB!

  11. Mikhail Kutizov always gets ingored, first prem I ever brought and still my most favorite ship to play 😁 I mainly play T10, but Kutuzov I always have time for, love burning T10 ships

    • I got the Kutozov from doing a series of missions. I had no idea how to play it and took it into a run of the Cherry Blossom op (back before the CV rework). My team five starred the op and my only contribution was not dying, so the team got the achievement for every ship surviving. I have improved my skills since then and acquitting myself well in the return of Cherry Blossom.

    • @Richard Bell once you know how to play her she’s strong as fuk 😅 love burning down T10 BBs with her haha awesome range and good she’ll archs as well as decent velocity for her teir, played a live match with her the other day as my clan watched on discord and just happen to get a kraken 🤣 had a few krakens with Kutuzov now. But I have been playing for 7 years 🤣

  12. Congratulations on 40k. So grateful for your reviews especially when I was just getting into wows. Thank you

  13. I’d like to see a top 5 least played BBs, can be any tier, though I’d be interested to see the VIII – X tier range. Love the videos, watch a couple a week and have been for over a year now.

  14. Would be interesting to look at why WG has left so many lead ships out of the game.

  15. Great video as always, and congrats for 40k subs!!

    I would have included Kamikaze/Kamikaze R/Fujin (45 second stealth torps at t5) and Mikhail Kutuzov (the original long range HE spammer, with smoke) on this list, or at lease as honorable mentions.

    IIRC, Smaland was available for something like 3M FXP. I remember I missed out on her by something like 20k and I’m still salty about it.

  16. if you ever seen the console version of this game the Alaska is very strong it has 32mm bow armor it tanks a lot of damage. the Georgia the console got the high accuracy but your not getting good secondaries or the high speed.

  17. Smaland was removed to make room for split European DD line all with radar above tier VIII 🙂

  18. I think once or twice a year they should allow you buy any of the “mothball fleet ships”

  19. From what I’ve heard from CV players Enterprise is still top 3 in terms of T8 CVs, along with Kaga and Chkalov, though Enterprise has a much higher skill floor compared to those. She’s the only removed ship that I really want, would be fun to have a T8 premium CV with that kind of historical significance.

  20. I remember before Thunderer was split from Conq, *_no-one_* would use the larger guns because of the loss of DPM, but now they’ve split her off, and she doesn’t get the zombie heal, everyone loves her… wtaf?

    Also, I dno how you did this Top 5 without the Jean Bart… She’s definitely one of the better removed premiums…
