Today i hit 2 major milestones, with the same battle: I played 4000 random battles and I racked up my 1000th match in the Tier 7 British light cruiser HMS Fiji. Those who know me from my former clans and the forums know that i have a thing (some would call it obsession) with the ship, especially when i used to be up at 4am playing Fiji and taking all sorts of risks with her, luckily paying off more often than not. Now I've officially played 1 quarter of my total random matches in her.

Am i planning on decommissioning her from my fleet and moving up the line for meme-a-taur? nope.... i intend to play 1000 more battles in her, she is an absolute beast of a ship and I've had so much fun captaining her.

My overall stats:

Achievements so far, at least 20 of the krakens are from Fiji:

yes, Fiji is the only ship I've played over 400 matches in haha.

my 1000th Fiji match, nothing too special... led the charge up the middle of the map, enemy CV kept harassing me, dropping torps on me 4 times and dive bombs another 4 times:

even with the smoke nerfs, Fiji is certainly still be best ship of it's tier, period. and with such a powerful ship, I've had more than a few highlights, these are still my favorites:

I look forward to inflicting my Fiji shenanigans on the red team for another 1000 matches. Merry Christmas everyone!

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

What clowns. If you were in my clan, I'd bloody well join you. 

(I may or may not be doing a similar thing with my Leander. It's great bashing NorCals in a LeNder, so humiliating for the other guy.)

I love cruisers and cruiser play and Fiji is my favorite tier 7. IMHO none of the rest of the T7 tech tree cruisers are worth keeping although Algire may be a keeper, just don't have enough games in her yet since I am grinding a UK captain right now. IMHO you picked a fine ship to play, best of luck on your next 1000 games in her!

Good job.  I hope I see on my team and not on the enemy team when you are in a game with me.  You're a beast in that thing.  LOL.

Fiji is a dangerous ship.  I'm nearing the finish line on my grind with her (can't really call it a grind).  Not only is the ship well equipped to dole out pain to the enemy, but it's also at the most advantageous tier.  Since I have been keeping count, out of 56 tier 7 games I have only been bottom tier 18% of the time.  Even when bottom tier, I find it pretty easy to place in the top 5 of my team with her.

I am hesitant to call any ship at tier 7 a 'seal clubber'.

 

 

But Fiji is a seal clubber!

It clubs all right.... especially DDs, you catch them at close range and a Fletcher or Yugumo will disappear in 3 good salvos.

 

Hydro, Heal and Torps with those guns make it perfect for agressive DD hunting and cap contesting.

Games: 63

Win rate: 63.49%

K/D: 2.1

XP: 1237

WTR: 1281

 

One helluva ship.

I have kept both my Leander and Fiji.  They are just great ships and fun to play.
