Tell Us Your Favorite Ship And What Makes It's So Great! I Will Go First

Tell us about your favorite ship you own in game and why you enjoy it so much or what makes it great in your mind. It can be a favorite from a gaming point of view or historical. Throw up a screenshot if you want as well. 

For me it's always been the Shimakaze. I own tons and tons of ships now but my first ever line I decided to grind was for the Shima and when I got her I was over the moon. Years late and I still enjoy taking her out above any other ship in the game. She still has great concealment, her guns are not fast but they hit decently and she has smoke and speed boost for her toolkit. What makes her so impressive are the number and power of her torpedoes. She is capable of taking out any ship in the entire game if you take too many of those torps. Many DD's have entered the game and I own a lot of them but she will always be my fav Tier 10.

Original Fubuki...only 4 torps each per 3 racks but just as capable of removing any ship in the game if they all hit...& imagine being able to do all that against the T8 spread...:Smile_trollface:

Shame it got removed right after I started...only got to run about 30 noob level games with it before the IJN DD split.

Amagi, cause I just never seem to have a bad game in it, even if I end up on the losing side.  Whether up tiered or down tiered, it always feels like that ship can hold its own.

I am a Jean Bart main.  Speed, able to angle and keep all guns on target.

But Pommern is making that ring on my finger feel a little restrictive.

The original,  omg....

I think I got 2 battles in her.

First time I ever saw a yammy....

Did a drive by past an island as she pushed...

The devastation was awesome! Followed by a double strike as I ate a Gearing for lunch ( he was half health) .  

Oh those guns and torps....

Fun time

I know people will hate me for this, but Enterprise. For one, the ship is my favorite outside the game, and also I absolutely love the capabilities of her. Sadly the attack aircraft nerf really hit Enterprise hard. Anyway, I still love her and will play her even if they nerf her into the ground.

Pommern for me too. IMHO, she's like the ultimate brawler in the game. :Smile_great:

It used to be GK, but I felt that the lack of torpedoes kinda limited her in some ways. Plus, her deck is actually less armored than FDG (and Pommern), so she felt like a bit of a downgrade to me, in some ways.

Before GK, it was FDG, because she's like a super-sized Bismarck (which was my favorite before FDG). Alas, having only 8 guns is also limiting in many ways, IMO. Plus, she has no torpedoes either.

Pommern seems to "fix" those issues by going for only the best parts of the high tier German BB's. Gun count of GK, the hydro from the tech tree, the torpedoes from Tirpitz, and the armor from FDG... only thing she's missing is the planes, but who cares about those, eh? LOL. :Smile_teethhappy:

While I don't have a singular favorite ship one that I always go back to playing is atago.

The slow firing but hard hitting guns, great torpedos, constantly starting fires, and low concealment make this thing a blast to play no matter what you do.

With atago being one of the oldest premiums you'd really think this thing would have been powercrept to death but it still holds up so well.

Bogue.

Did I say BOGUE?

EVEN NOW,  nearly two and a half YEARS after 0.8.0, it is STILL my most player ship, total games played, across Randoms, Ranked, and Co-op.

Especially after it became a 1-1-1 carrier. Since I sucked so much at carriers in Randoms, I could have my carrier fun in Co-op, and not be much of a bother to live Greens, or an annoyance to live Reds.

Bogue was at a perfect sweet spot for Co-op play. Juuuust enough AA to make you be careful, but not enough to crush your air group faster than you could react.

There were many games where all the Greens died, and I was left fighting them alone in my Bogue. I've always wondered what they thought after leaving me alone, when their ship was finally released from the game, and it was a win.

Poor little slow Bogue. I loved it more than Independence. The two 127mms on the stern saved me more than once. I learned to be pretty good with the attack adjustment tab, especially since I've never been good with manual attacks.

There were even times where I would sink everything but the bot Bogue, deplane it, then trundle around taking all the caps...

...my price, for giving those who died fast, and probably expected me to lose, a win.

My most perfect win ever in Bogue, was a Domination game on Strait.

Everything sunk, bot Bogue deplaned. I harassed it down to low health, then started to cap.

Keeping my torpedo squad nearby, I waited until there was about twenty seconds left on the cap, and made my drop.

O seconds left. Torps hit. Bot bogue sinks.

Clean sweep, and the cap ribbon.
