It used to be the Hurricane. It's a shame I rarely fly one anymore.

Ishtar is my favourite because it is a Swiss Army Knife in my pocket. It can do anything and everything I require.

It's very hard to choose just ONE favorite ship since there's favorites for every situation.

For high sec shenanigans it's without doubt a gank Catalyst.

For roams i really do enjoy flying logi, but the most fun fleet(s) I've ever been in was blap Oracle fleet (Yes, grr T1 Tachyons). Ruined my sec status so much in those fleets, but totally worth it.

As for my personal favorite if I were to fly solo it would actually have to be the Hookbill. Have had a secret love for the Hookbill ever since I started playing EVE. So much fun to fly, and the versatility in fittings is awesome. You can surprise and fit light missiles and kite away, or fit dual MASB's and achieve all the lols. Or go for a TD/web/scram fit and ruin that blaster boats' day. Or my personal favorite, the armor tanked ECM burst fit (despite the "wtf m8" it actually works) And it's imo one of the coolest looking ships in the game.

To add though, I've never actually flown T3's in pvp before and that's something I really wanna do. And once I do I might actually get a new favorite ship.

Blaster fit, tackling merlin, superb low sec killing machine.

Dumbing down of Eve Online will result in it's destruction...

For a light armament, a blaster Cormorant with two rails for range and a light missile launcher for anti-drone.

Heavy: Railed Ferox, best thing ever. Can snipe up to 75km and insta-pop small ships within 30km.

Used to be the Ark... maybe it still is. I really like the Cambion now too, though. Also the Astero, Gnosis, and Apotheosis. Leopard is cool too. So many cool ships about of late. Can't decide!

Edit: Special mention to the 13k alpha Tornado. I've lost over 100 to CONCORD in the last 6 months. Awesome.

Which are due for a nerf soon.

It is the CCP way. Anything with even a miniscule slight edge becomes popular in game. The forum trolls then call it OP citing popularity as evidence and then to keep the trolls happy CCP merrily nerf it back into obscurity never to be flown again :D


Yep. Wont be surprised to see the Ishtar nerfed. Kinda will be for my uses, since Garde DPS will be lowered. But then theres gonna be faction DDAs so... might even out. I'll probably go back to Gilas after the summer patch actually... Or at least try them out for a while. They have kind of an appealing rickety look as well, like the Millenium Falcon or Serenity.

Dramiel-love this design, looks dangerous and can fly


Used to look way better before they put camouflage on it.

I think the very first ship I fell in love with, way back in 2004 when I made my first character, was the Vexor. Purely based on looks. It kinda looks like a shrimp. Its cool.

So... a ship is only your favourite statistically or it makes something really easy?


If favorite ships = ships most used then yes, I generally use the ship that is most efficient for the task at hand. Going by looks, many of many favorites I don't use much, or have no plans to use at all (like the Hel).

I do wish CCP would let T3s back in hisec DED sites though. I will personally not go back to using them but I'd like to come across them. :)

Ah ****, I don't remember my PVE tengu nor Maelstrom fits.

But they were built to do lv 4s. The Mael could shield tank and could be either arty or AC fit, without changing anything else on the fit.

The tengu could warp in, sit there, get all the aggro, never lose more than 2% shields and clear every room in about 20 minutes or so. It was good isk, but very boring. It wasn't that expencive of a fit either. 1.2b for the whole thing if memory serves. It wasn't too blingy.

This is as nice as I get. Best quote ever https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=4137165#post4137165

When i was in Null i loved the Sabre. It was a lot of fun when i was solo bubbling off of gates.


Now i hi-sec war-dec and love running around in a highly tanked Proteus.

People used to say the hurricane was basically just a better rupture and when insurance was good it really made no sense to fly a rupture. This was all pretty much true. But lots of people would stick around to try pick up a rupture kill that wouldn't stay to fight a hurricane - at least in fw space where there were lots of figates.

But I imagine flying the hurricane was much the same as flying a rupture only you were able to take on more stuff. I've seen some players do some pretty awesome stuff with hurricanes. I never did get around to flying one when they were great. I probably should have given it a try.

Make faction war occupancy pvp instead of pve https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&m=53815&#post53815

Ships that I can fly?

Navy Apoc is probably one of my favorites as far as looks go and my Anathema is pretty sweet too. The ship that really made me excited about Eve when I first started playing was a Coercer.

For ships that I will probably never be able to fly the Revelation is just so damned pretty. I want one so! But A. I will probably never fly capital ships and B. I've heard they aren't very good.

The crusader was the first ship I felt all comfy in. Then they went and posted speed limits in the game.
