The Devil's own ship

If you had to pick a ship that you would describe as the "Devil's own", which would you choose?

For me, I'm saying it's the Haida: it floats about, shrouded in an evil mist, raining fire upon her adversaries.

This isn't about a ship being OP, either, it's just about what ship best represents evil incarnate. :fish_viking:

Conqueror. Because, you know, conqueror burns stuff, and the devil tends to reside in a certain hot place.

Atago. Atago is an enigma wrapped in a ronin’s tatami, that spits liquid magma and then vanishes.

Atlanta.

Excellent choice. A well played enemy Atlanta is just the worst.

2 ships that are no longer in the game would be the top 2...although the 1st one I've never had the pleasure of & have only heard the rumors but Kitikami obviously takes the throne from Satan himself...& then there was the original Fubuki...only got to it & was able to play about 40-50n games before the split...I didn't do so well in it but my buddy used to break 150k damage games consistently in it.

As for ship in games...the most evil DD/tier is hands down...the Emerald (CL?...only if you play it wrong). Same shells as the T10 (& thus able to cit any CA at any tier)/smoke/hydro/double racks of torps on each side of the ship that can annihilate any BB in it's meta w/just one sides worth)/& the maneuverability to charge DD smoke w/it's hydro & easily dodge all torps & steal their smoke to use it's own smoke for later...not to mention the ability to kite even it's much feared & dreaded T7 counterpoint the Fiji's rounds when at top speed at maximum range & punish it for chasing (that may have been a fluke but I was kiting against 2 at once last night & made 1 turn away after losing 1/2 of it's life & killed the other w/just over 1/4 life left after using only 1 heal).

As for cruisers...Atlanta definitely goes w/out saying...but the Mogami w/15 155s is just pure fire breathing madness.

Note: I run AR on all ships...the relevance here being that I intentionally didn't heal more while fighting the 2 Fijis for the faster reload...& there was some islands I was able to duck & dodge behind while taking on both at once...it wasn't until the 1st turned away & I was in a guaranteed 1 on 1 scenario that I cut into mostly open water to take on the 2nd one by itself.

Bogatyr. A fire-breathing dragon that out-ranges anything that can outgun it and burns down anything that can't. It has the speed to dictate the engagement against anything heavier and the roadside throw-weight to horrifically murder anything smaller than it.

But what makes it truly evil? It picks on tier 2 newbies for breakfast.

That's you, not the ship.

I've always thought of Khabarovsk as more a demon, less the Devil.

Graf Zeppelin - it is pretty much everything wrong with CV's in a single package that is what everyone was told to believe about CV's - that it can instant delete ships and fleets alone.

Imperator Nikolai I.

Especially if you have the Rasputin camo.

Yep it gets my vote as well.

Love the Rasputin skin on that thing. In last years Halloween bash I was able set up the ram with my BB. Hit the force field and smashed him right in his ugly mug. 

Top five moment in this game so far. :Smile_izmena:

   Belfast, another mist-shrouded villain that spits fire and just when you've hidden from her, just when you think you've crept up on her to deal the vengeful killing blow, she pops radar to eviscerate you. From stealth. The only ship left that can truly stealth fire without a spotter.

Leningrad. Khaba speed, Russian railguns, fast reloading stealth fire torps, no concealment penalty, 3 sec rudder shift. Gets to bully T5 DD's and burn down T5 BB's
