Whatever came before, the Prophecy now most certainly is most useless ship, even though it still looks good

I mean, missiler launchers, but drone bonuses??

As the gentleman above me pointed out, I really hope this is a troll.

If not, consider the Prophecy to be a drone boat with missiles (or lasers) for back up as a secondary weapons system to it's huge drone bay. It is currently one of the best BC's in the game.

The ship that never undocks.

By the way, since we're already talking, do you want to buy a rifter? I've got the cheapest rifters in Metropolis. If you can find a cheaper rifter, buy it!

I think just about nearly every major nullsec alliance runs Munnins. I see them every day in delve, both from TEST and BL

I'd second that. I actually bought one as I thought I had missed something, having looked at the attributes and concluded "that's totally useless". Turns out, it actually is more or less useless.

Although...the Echelon. Talk about niche.

Muninn is arguably the worst ship in terms of isk.

It simply serves no purpose at all which can't be done better and in a lot of cases much much cheaper with other ships.

Oh and its been like that for probably 3-4 years. If anything T2 deserves a bit of attention its that.

In vote the Megathron Federate Issue. Nobody uses it ever!

EVE online has many many types of ships anyone can fly with the proper skills. Many very good, many very pretty to look at.

And taking inspiration from Top Gear's The Worst Car in the History of the World special.

Without breaking the bank in modules or going beyond what the ship can do with T2 modules. What would you nominate for the worst and most useless ship in EVE?



My choice is: The Caracal/Cerberus.

I like Caldari ships alot, but i cannot think of an uglier and more useless ship than that. Not much power, not much in defenses, not much speed even MWD fit. What ever sleek design it is supposed to have is completely lost in a ship that looks like an over sized coffee stir stick. Very little improvement in its T2 variation with a rather hideous paint job.


Close second choice is: The Rorqual

For being so useless that its role can one day be replaced by a simple POS module overnight if CCP chooses to make one. Giving you a useless, very expensive ship that cannot access high sec and has not other strategic role that is not already filled by other capital or smaller ships. I do not find the ship ugly however, so it is not my number one. (New paint job would hurt, stripes of JMC Red Dwarf red anyone?P)


Your doing it wrong. The caracal is one of the best cruisers IMHO. I'd probably go with the Tormentor as most useless.

Even after the ship rebalancing, there are still some that are worthless and are terrible.

Vigil - Minmatar Frigate.
Does anyone really use target painters? They're only useful if you're having trouble hitting a target due to a small signature radius. Since frigates typically don't suffer that problem, it's kinda useless. The *only* time I've ever seen a TP used is on a stealth bomber using torps against another frigate sized enemy.

Bellicose - Minmatar Cruiser. Same problem as the Vigil. The need for target painters is rare if ever. By proxy, the need for this ship and it's little frigate brother is also rare if ever. The uses for target painters are few and far between.

Prophecy - Amarr Battlecruiser. So now its primary weapon is drones? Sadly it's underwhelming in comparison to the Myrmidon or even it's smaller brother, the Vexor cruiser. With just 75 mbit/sec, its DPS is underwhelming. If this ship gets flown at all, expect to see it fitted with autocannons or blasters as its primary weapon. /facepalm

Ferox - Caldari Battlecruiser. Still underwhelming even after the rebalance. It's as if it's trying to be on par with the Brutix yet falls short. Maybe when railguns are worth a damn will the Ferox be any good. Plus only five mid slots means the shield tank is a little gimped. Maybe move a high slot to a mid? Or maybe a low to a mid? It might help a little.

Cyclone - Minmatar Battlecruiser. Design for the tank seems to have gone horribly wrong. As a PvP ship, this just screams armor tank despite the shield boosting bonus. Your mid slots will be used for propulsion, web and warp scram/disrupt. There goes three of the five mid slots. The remaining two would have to be a shield extender and a shield booster if you wanted to actually use the shield boosting bonus. In the meantime you still have five low slots not being used. Full damage mod loadout maybe? Seems like a waste.

No, the obvious way to fit this ship for PvP (at least, obvious to me) is to fit armor tank in the lows, propulsion/web/disruptor/ewar in the mids, and heavy assaults and neuts in the highs.

In fleets where you're not the tackle, this ship isn't too bad at all.

I vote Caracal Navy or Cerberus. Caracal for it's price is just better.

I don't know where to start - there are like 100+ of them. Either too specialized and situational (like scanning) or too expensive to use.
