Had a pretty nice game in Hood today.  First kraken in Hood and only my fourth time sinking 5 or more ships.  Sadly the replay didn't get saved, which is frustrating as it is the first one since enabling saves that I actually wanted.  At the start I advised B and C, though our Pan-Asian DD insisted on poking at A, said he'd retreat if contested, but he sank there.  We got C, but the enemy held A and B for most of it and was up seven ships to our four when in the space of about a minute I sank their Furutaka, Hatsuharu (secondary kill), V-61 and Myoko and from that point we had the upper hand.

Nice game man!  I love my Hood but my performance in it is very inconsistent.  I've had some really good games and I've had one game where I think I landed one shell before I got nuked all to hell by an enemy CV.  Anyone that tells you Hood's AA is great, yeah, don't believe them.  That guy hammered me from full health to zero even with me running defensive AA.

Nice game.  I find the Hood to be very underrated.   I held off buying it for a year because people talked so bad about it.   Finally picked it up on sale and discovered it’s not bad at all!

Hmm.  CVs just tend to avoid it in my experience.  Its reputation is more of a deterrent than the UPs are.

Still my favorite ship in the game, and my go to ship if I want to have a good game after a string of disasters.

Hood is quite the fun ship if you know how to aim. Slightly above the belt, she basically eats everything in her weight class and above. Move fast, never stop, and punish people.
