Hood.jpg.9b0f3252978dabb0326825a741b899ab.jpg

Next month is the anniversary of her sinking. Probably the most famous battlecruiser in history along with SMS Goeben, the Hood was a sleek beauty. I rank her up there with the IJN Atago and the Bismarck for her beautiful lines. In-game other BBs have greater hitting power but the Hood can take punishment and survive. What would you rather have on your team late game--a heavier hitter that has been sunk, or the redoubtable Hood there to support you?

RIP crew of Hood:

WoWS is so much better than Tanks because of instances like the hood. In Tanks you get some generic model like the t34 or somethin where there were thousands made, but in ships you have one ship, often (in the world of BBs) one with a fantastic history like the Hood, Bismark, Missouri, and such!

While admitting to its utility; that bloody thing is a (redacted) baseboard-crawling roach that needs to go the way of that Chinese tank that was removed.

You're right it always did remind me of a woodtick. Nonetheless it was hella fun to play.

Hey

The Hood is a thing of beauty and in game, she really isn't too bad, quite decent in fact.  At least it's the most accurate since it relies on AP shells instead of the stupidity driven HE spamming stablemates.

Hood is my favourite ship in real life and in WoWs, I like her alot for her looks, but her reputation and service history also help. She's so amazing but her guns in game are sooooo inaccurate and she has amazing armour which should be reversed.

No, her armor is accurate.  It is just much, much better suited to WoWS that it was to reality.
