No ships in this game, only submarines.

As long as the ship does it's job, it doesn't matter.

V I N D I C A T O R.

That is all. (literally can't believe it hasn't had a mention yet, that i could see briefly anyway)

Geddon close 2nd cus it's cheapo and ridiculously scary, unless you're in a Vindi then there isn't much that's very scary.

The Answer is always Machariel. Physically as big as a Carrier (though it still fits in one lol), maneuvers like a Cruiser, hits like a Dread, warps like a Battlecruiser. All you gotta add is 'stings like a bee' and it's the Ali of ships.

It's the Bi-Polar choice!

The one that kills your enemy before he or she kills you


the one that lets you escape an ambush/gate camp,


the one that lets you hang on to that target long enough for your fleet to warp in and kill it before it kills you.

There's no "one ship to rule them all" in eve, just ships good at certain roles.

Eve is the dark haired, totally hot emo gothchild of the gaming community

Tengu, or the Machariel if you can afford to fit it properly.

Amarr ships are the best looking ships in Eve, the Absolution for example is gorgeous. But i must say Caldari - Caracal/Cerbs/Scorpions are probably a close second.

On ship Vexor Navy issue is nice, Garmurs fitted properly are decent too. Depends what you want to kill tbh. The T3 Destroyers are decent too

All my views are my own - never be afraid to post with your main, unless you're going to post some dumb shit

Worm and Garmur get my vote - obviously not when it comes to pure numbers for DPS/Tank/Velocity - but they're pretty damn strong (and downright overpowered with links).

not sure if Orthrus. Or Ferox? Daredevil's good too. Oooohhhh and Armageddons! Moa's superb too. Flycatchers. And Confessor, yarrr, that one too.

Matter of fact, it'd be easier to list the not-so-good ships I suppose LOL.

If "best" means "most fun to fly" where pricetag is not an issue, I'd probably have to say Cynabal though.
If price does factor into the equation, then hands down: Stabber me please!

If the thread exist any longer you'll have every ship mentioned once. So every ship is the best ship in Eve.
Its just relative. There is no best ship. People have different opinions so the best ship is the one that you are able to handle the best.

It all depends on exactly what you plan to use your ship for.

If you are after exploration in dangerous areas with dangerous rats and also dangerous capsuleers you generally want to fly an Astero or a Stratios due to their bonuses to exploration without gimping defense and offense.

If you are generally a solo privateer and you are strapped for cash you will probably prefer to fly a Minmatar ship due to the speed, agility, and versatility of their hulls. And you are unlikely to fly anything larger than a Battlecruiser (btw, my favourite ship to fly is a Breacher. She's pretty cheap, hits just less hard than an Incursus at ranges within 10km, tanks lots of damage and is fast enough to outpace any non-navy, non-pirate and non-Minmatar frigate in scram range).

If you aren't strapped for cash you probably will either pick a Daredevil for their amazing close range dps and the ability to make anything within 10km dead in the water, a Worm for being generally cancer (huge tank, huge drone DPS. Get the DPS of six drones with only three drones!), a Hawk for being a beefier but less versatile Breacher (also cancer), a Vengeance for their hilarious amount of survivability while being a more tempting target than a Hawk.

If you operate out in nullsec and catching and killing things by yourself is your order of the day you probably want a Sabre.

If you do high level exploration in dangerous space like wormholes you likely prefer either a Tengu or a Loki, Tengu for their very strong tank and long range damage application, Loki for being faster and more DPS in general.

Etc etc etc.

So in conclusion, best ship is what fits in your budget range that suits whatever it was you plan to do.

A Minmatar warship is like a rusting Beetle with 500 horsepower Cardillac engines in the rear, armour plating bolted to chassis and a M2 Browning stuck on top.
