Folks, I was driving my Fiji today and in every battle I was often getting 6-7-8 and even 9 on my Priority target! :cap_haloween: I reckon that the reason for that it that y'all have mistaken Fiji for Belfast. I expect to be focused on while driving Belfast, but with Fiji? Fiji's a adorable 'lil CL and doesn't deserve such harsh treatment! So y'all be nice to Fiji, OK?  :cap_cool:

Dear Fiji,

It would be most kind of you if you refrain from eviscerating our friendly torpedo slinging gun toting tin cans with your specialized armor piercing rounds.

 

Sincerely, 

The Red Team

Agreed! Fijis are lovely little botes - They look nice and sleek, and they're great CLs too. 

 

It's like kicking a cute puppy? Would you kick that poor dog? No? Then let's do the same to our dear Fijis!

Those were just a admirers, not hostiles. Fiji is loved by all. Gifts flow freely to her each match...

All Fiji's should be focus fired when sighted. Until dead. As many times as needed.

My most played ship, poor little Fiji doesn't deserve the abuse. It's sweet and innocent and doesn't fire dirty HE at things. People should love them.

  No way!   The only RN CL MORE irritating to play against is Minotaur.   Thus, when it's spotted, it gets shot.    DIE PUNY AP SPAMMER!!!!!!   (and you KNOW what you can do with those torpedoes.)

  Besides, they taste good!  <burrp>

They should at least have the decency to misidentify the Belfast as an Edinburgh, right? :Smile_teethhappy:

     Yes, the Fiji.  Often affectionately referred to a the "Fifi," though her RN pedigree belies the French poodle moniker.   She can often be found near the front of the battle, playfully peeking out of her smoke screen whilst cheerfully plying BB's and cruisers with her AP.  True; she does get a bit upset at the annoying rats trying to send torps at her friends, but she sends them back home readily with their tails between their legs.  And if a dogged CL tries to rush her smoke, Fiji has some friendly torps waiting to greet them.

     So lets not focus the Fiji, she's not that detested Belfast.  Let alone the cursed Atlanta!

Fiji doesn't need to be mistaken for a Belfast to be considered a priority target. Frankly, IMO, Fiji is a superior ship to Belfast and more of a threat.

Hard to resist shooting something that squishy.  I think I dev struck one through the bow...with a cruiser. To be fair, one doesn’t usually land 8 of 9 rounds on a bow in ship...but, it’s hilarious when you can catch one at close range.  Fiji is a good ship...but, I’d agree she doesn’t up Tier that well...as evidenced by the fact that Edinburgh isn’t exactly regarded as a monster of a ship.

I didn’t keep mine. Finished the grind and moved on. I vastly prefer Leander.

My most played ship too, over 380 battles. And tied with Helena as my Favorite CL.

I agree. I have Belfast and I do much better with Fiji. I do better with Helena too. IMHO, Belfast aint the overpowered beast that she has the reputation of being.

The high number of PTs, not to mention a massive amount of potential damage, that I got while driving Fiji yesterday blew my mind. Hell, I don't get that many driving DDs! :Smile_amazed:

part of Edinburgh's problem is it's the same guns torps etc as Fiji, just sees a tier higher MM...if you want to play a Edinburgh but don't want to buy one, faildiv in a Fiji.

Yeah when I got Belfast in a crate I was like OMG I will wreck stuff now. Then I played it and was like … :Smile_sceptic:

I prefer Fiji no question. Now, I only play Co-op so that may be part of it. Belfast just lacks in Co-op.

I also love Fiji. Especially those who brake up to smoke while being detected. A very nice trick with your BB: aim at him for roughly 1/4 speed. Fire the second he goes undetected. Oneshot in lots of the cases. That goes for every RN cruiser for that matter. It's my greatest hobby in this game: one shooting RN cruisers at the moment they sigh a breath of relief thinking they're safe. Cost me some Karma. But that was a trade I was very willing to take.

The Fiji is a lovely vessel. Doing British things to other vessels. 

Its even great at hunting Belfast in smoke with radar or torp spam. 

Need more Fiji appreciation threads. 

Big thanks to those players that tater in it to keep the vessel un-nerfed.
