In your opinion, what is the most fun ship just to sail for  the lols and pure enjoyment?

When I'm tired of grinding or the mind games of mid/high tiers, I try to play something fun. Currently my favorite toy is the Dresden. I dont think I've actually damaged anything yet, but with 200 hits per game it is one helluva fireworks show.

What's your favorite?

My favorite ships for that is the Cleveland.  The Aigle does that too but the guns are a bit weird.  Then there's the Okhotnik - it's probably the goofiest ship I own but it's got a ton of guns.

I wouldn’t say it’s my favorite, but Scharnhorst fits your criteria for relaxed sailing in randoms. Her combination of armor, firepower, rate of fire, and matchmaking allow you to not have to be on edge all the time.

Frankly, any ship with a high fire rate taken into co-op is my choice when you just want easy kills.

St Louis and Bogatyr are comfortable forgiving and effective gunboats.

I love the Scharnhorst. Its fast enough to put you in harms way, and armored enough so you can flee back to your team mates and annouce. "Ok gents, lets not go that way."

Leningrad, Udaloi, Shchors, Gremyaschy, Atlanta, Mogami, Kutuzov... hmmm seem to be a lot of Russians in that list...

Then there’s the Derzki. With Torp Armament Expertise and Adreneline Rush it gets just silly.

Easy:  St. Louis / Igor. 

Bougainville is fun too, though one quickly tires of T1.

Enjoy the following when I am in a funk, and just want to have a good time.  Nick, Ark Beta, Cesar, Campbelltown, Vampire and now Roma.  I like the Mikasa and Emden for some LOL.  Non Prem.  usually not too much, as if I want some fun, I usually want to make some silver, but really do look forward to the Lion, fun ship...  Missouri not on list, cause higher tiers is what usually has burned me out a bit.  I like other Prems like Dunk and Tirp, but seems like I gotta work harder...  oh yeah Ohotinck been a lot of fun the few games I have played...

If you're talking gun boats, I'm really liking De Grasse right now (of all things).  I'm mostly using her in operations, dedicated captain with IFHE, putting up some pretty stunning hits and damage.  Never have to load AP, you can citadel most of the cruisers you face with HE.  In Randoms, well, she's a little more challenging.

Shchors was fun - strong, accurate guns with long range and fast reload.  When I'm done with Chapayev, I'll likely buy it back again and put her captain back in her.  The Donskoi and Moskva might be challenging with a new captain, but my Russian cruiser line captain is set up for 152mm mains and fourteen points is a long grind.

Edit - Ark Beta for sure, @Morpheous!

  My go to fun botes are South Carolina and St Louis (with Igor camo!).   Closely followed by Bougainville and the Pan Asian tier 1.

Yeah. Halloween St. Louis is a blast. I really like Nassau too and managed to pick up that halloween camo as well.
