Kraken, an award we all like to earn. Since its emergence in game, what is the most unlikely vessel that you have earned this award in?

 

For me it would be the Svetlana, how anyone lets a cruiser get that many kills is beyond me. It was in a T4/5 game, with plenty of BBs (only last week), so i was surprised to get 3 let alone the 5.

 

Id have said the Clemson as well, but that can be a bit of a seal clubber at its own equal tier.

You can count Minekaze as a Filthy Seal clubber :trollface:

Two of my friends in a division, both got Krakens in the same game. 10 kills just by 2 players. Ships were New York and Zuiho.

 

 

I have gotten a few krakens in Kuma, Murmansk, Furutaka, New Mexico, Fuso, Colorado, Nagato as well. For cruiser, it is more like finding an opportunity, and for BBs, its more like biting nails and "please dont take my kill guys" prayers.

I got one in the Izyaslav (hope I spelt that right) before, but my recent one was a 7 kill Minekaze game (I still feel vaguely guilty)

I wanted that achievement so bad! It was just always out of my grasp. Getting 4 in a battle on multiple occasions was hard to stomach, then I managed to crack it a couple of weeks ago with a St Louis- though it was a close run thing; burning, down to my last 500HP and under fire from a CA & BB- so I rammed the enemy CV that popped out from behind an island. Was totally worth it! Even picked up the ramming achievement too!

 

Then just last night I managed it in a Chester!

One of my weirdest matches ever was a Kraken in my Karlsruhe in a Tier 4-6 match.

It's like the planets in some far away galaxy just aligned for that to happen.

Kraken in a Myogi?? #RESPECT

Just in case you don't believe me. Too bad I didn't enable replay at that time.

No no no, I believe you. And that's why I wrote "#RESPECT" cause when I tried she felt like a horrible ship.

Though some of these would predate the award I have also included ships that i have managed the prerequisite 5 kills. my profile states that I have done it 9 times since the award started and there are 15 ships in this list. lines marked with a * are ones that I fairly certain occurred before the start of the award.

The ships I have managed a kraken are.

Blyskawicia

Nicholas *

Pensacola

St Louis*

Aurora*

Omaha*

Albany

Ranger

Langley

Hiryu

Warspite

Ishizuchi*

New York*

Kongo

New Mexico

I got my first kraken in Yorck, and she survive till the end of the battle with about half hp. Still don't know how I could manage that. It was in a T7-T8 battle by the way.
