I found out that it is so easy to get Kraken unleashed in Fiji. 

It is better than Belfast in this respect. 

I got the last three Kraken in Fiji this week. 

 

I just unlocked a Fiji. I guess I'll have to go take it for a spin. I'd like to see a replay so I can see how people play it.

you'll love it.... is the most powerful and versatile cruiser at it's tier. a true terror for DDs and cruisers.

a couple of my recent replays from Fiji to give you an idea on how to use her.

and my guide to HMS Fiji:

Enjoy her, she is an excellent ship once you play her to her strengths, just be ready to fail while still learning as she does have a high skill floor.

It's also a good at being citadel generator :Smile_trollface:

True.... but she gives more citadels than she takes, for example:

the targeted ship was 100% health before that salvo lol.

The Fiji is my go to ship for fun. It can dominate higher tier BBs with its AP if they sail broadside, plus its smoke and heal give it a lot of aggressive passive play.

Hydro is great for closing with DDs that sit in smoke as well. Easiest ship to earn a 19 point captain in!

Generally, I do best playing it close to an oversized USN DD sans HE, that has Hydro and a heal. The AP is surprisingly good against a DD, broadside cruisers, especially Atlanta and the like, will regret being broadside if your dialed in, and you just have to watch BB's as you have to aim at the superstructure.

Edi can be even better. Just got a Kraken and Dreadnaught after a Super late load. Not much damage, tore into 3 DD's, finished a Belfast with a torp and was the only one in gun range to kill a Kutuzov with barely over 1k HP left for just under 60k damage (and thankfully was on the last "Winter Mystery" mission). Bet what I love best about Edi - with a full stealth build, you have a narrow band with which to stealth torp. About 1 km, same as some of the lower IJN DD's now have. It can be priceless for some cruiser/BB to think they are trying to run down a DD that's launching torps only to eat 3 torps grouped fairly tight roughly every minute till they back off and see AP flying from smoke or killed going "What the :etc_swear:" cause a cruiser just stealth torped them.:Smile_trollface:

Congrats...& just in time for the new Scenario...lol...it's a terror in Randoms...in Scenarios...it almolst makes you feel sorry for the bots...only needed to run it once each time on PT for 5 stars.

The agility is such that you can drop your smoke for others & stay out of it & just duck & dodge while tanking left & right(Adrenalin Rush just makes it that much funner as you take hits as you go).

I don't really know if it's a Kraken generator but for sure she's one of the best T7 cruiser. She can compete against most ship a T7 cruiser will face without too much issue.

She is one of my funk busting, "for fun" ships, as well.  Give me one or two destroyer escorts and we will wreck everything.

If I recall correctly she was the first or second strongest performing ship in ranked battles and was as strong or stronger than the Belfast.
