for me to fly:
curse - because it dies that day, everytime, often without any kills
haulers - because i just hate non combat ships

to fight:
drake - its extremly boring in every way
dramiels - PITA, too many escape with low armor/hull which angers me
T3s - either 'cheap' fit bait or pimped and tough as a nut, or cloaky and cowards.

The Dramiel, hands down hate it. Why? No soul, yeah its good at what it does and it should be rightly feared but I feel like a cookie cutter pilot as soon as I get in it.

All those t1 ships that are still beat down by the tier system.
Dramiel, for taking the fun out of frig fights.

Even though im stuck with it for a while, the drake. I feel like im following the crowd whenever i use it even though I used to use it back when I was a noob before the whole 'Drake hype'. That was back when everyone thought the drake was bad for some reason and said it needed a buff.

There's a lot of strange thoughts being posted here, most of which seem to apply to the individual pilots than the ships in general.
- Burst: Its stats are extremely bad, but I did actually manage to solo an arty Thrasher in one once. The surprise factor in so many ships leads to many, many pilots overestimating themselves and losing the fight.
- Bellicose: It's painter range helps a lot in Alpha gangs and it can be fit to be a fairly good frigate killer. Put 4 ec-600s in the drone bay and a good pilot could kill a few cruisers as well.
- Scythe Fleet Issue: Like the Caracal, not much good against cruisers, but nasty against frigates. Fast enough to keep away from most non-Minnie cruiser hulls as well.
- The ENI: Can't honestly see any value in this ship over a Rupture apart from better cap and speed which becomes a bit redundant if the Rupture has neuts or HMLs. It's price, like most tier 1 navy ships, is simply too high.
- Stabber: Fit it and fly it like a big fighter (it's almost as fast as a Vaga). Bad against cruisers, good against frigates.
- Omen: Ask Adolf Ehrnrooth about Omens. Classical armour fit is very bad due to PG and CPU issues, but nano kiting fit is excellent as is the gank no prop coercer type fit.
- Typhoon: Needs very high skills to work well, but if you have them, it's an amazingly versatile ship that can deal great damage.
- Osprey Navy: No, I can't really see the value in this one either, apart from being a good frigate killer, but the Caracal can do it better for much less isk. Could possibly put a TD in the mids and kite turret cruisers.

The really bad ships in eve are in general the mining frigates and cruisers, the t1 versions of the interceptors, apart from possibly the Atron, the Ewar frigates apart from the Sentinel. Blasters have problems on cruiser and larger.

Mostly, however, all ships have something that's useful.

Megathron and Hyperion.

With maxed out fitting skills and Gallente BS 5, I'm still left thinking these ships are just crap because you cant even fit Neuron Blasters and any reasonable tank. If you do fit neutron blasters, you wont hit anyway coz their tracking/range is ****.

Why does anyone ever fly any tier 2 and 3 BS except for Amarr or Minmatar?

fleet tempest is not good enough any other race fleet variant will be better than tier 3 BS.

but fleet pest just isn't good as mael and cost 3x more and cant deliver, and due to price is just wasting isk for pvp u just fit isk difference on mael and voila pwn boat right there to choose to most pvp situations

make me sad

I just went thru this thread and couldn't believe what I saw....or more to the point, what I didn't see.

Can anyone truly say, that now the Noctis has been released, that every single friggen T1 destroyer hasn't become irrelevant?

Sacrilege, basically its an over priced drake, same tank, nearly same speed, less dps, smaller sig radius.

Depends how cheap you are, they're great for running L2s when you don't have the money on hand for a cruiser. Some of the L3s, too.

Personally, I hate Hurricane, Drake, Dramiel and Cynabal. They all are good ships, but EVERYONE flies them, so boring. Lowsec every second (solo) pirate flies a hurricane and the few (noob) ratters I catch on rare occations are mostly flying drakes. In 0.0 the gangs I encounter are usually filled with Dramiels and Cynabals.

That said, I understand some of them if not all are fotm and I understand that people want the best bang for their buck, but I wouldn't mind wider variety of ships around. Moar balance.

Oh yeah, I hate the useless ships as well, most of them already mentioned in this thread

Drake. Encountering them is tiresome (but rewarding when they pop because I genuinely ****ing hate them) and the few times I've flown one I found pvping in a Drake is eerily similar to mining but not as exciting.

Niddoghur and Hel.
Cool looking as hell but so sub-par.

For non-caps, any ship slower than 1k m/s. Boring.
Also all Amarr ships.

Not a miner or anything, but still suprised the procuror hasn't come up yet, the only ship i know that is produced purely as the base of the T2 hull

Hookbill. It's so dumb for it's price. I've beaten at least ten hookbills in my T1 frigs (merlin, rifter, Incursus). It's a 60 million ISK RunAway mobile.

Most of the t1 Caldari gunboats. Moa, Specifically.


You probably put rails on it.

Nlaster Moas (and actually all the Caldari gunboats) perform quite well with blasters; the added range is quite useful, honestly more useful in my opinion than a damage bonus thanks to Blaster's such horrid ranges.

I'd have to say my least favorite ship is Drake.

So common as to be annoying, it's a steel pancake, and they're almost so easy to fly it borders on "Why bother?" territory.

I'm not saying the Drake is a bad ship, I just don't like flying it. At all. I'd take Bloa over Drake any day in a fleet.

Yet another vote for ENI. FFS - the normal exequror is a better ship. WTF?

I would say any ship fitted by an idiot.
I've been in a small fleet, flying a blaster Ferox, and out damaged battle ships.
Now what does that say about the Ferox? that it can out damage a ship that was not fitted properly for damage output. Also it can out damage lasers. :P
