for some reason I always confused the name of the cleveland, and I associated it with the cloverfield monster. (who remembers that movie?) because it's a beast.

 

isokaze: the f***ing monster of tier IV

I find the lack of Germans disturbing... Trollpitz/Torpitz, Karlshure, Yuck and Admiral Hipster send their regards!

Also:

Yamato = Tomato

Montana = Monty (sometimes Python); also, she's the real T9.5, not the Iowa!

Furutaka = Failrutaka, mainly before they buffed her

New Orleans = Nope Orleans

Des Moines = (DPM) Demon

Colorado = Trollorado

Murmansk = Murdermansk

The Kawachi is generally "couldn't hit a broadside"
Minekaze is ninjaship
the Bogue is Boogey (my usual squadron buddy is scottish and cannot pronounce half the names to save his life)

the Karlsruhe is the Karlsberg (we dont do warships but if we did it would probably be in the world... though we all know otherwise!)

the Furutaka is "turn those f**king guns damn it!"

A badly played Tirpitz is, of course, a Derpitz.

Fubuki: Often just shortened to 'Bucky'

Mutsuki: Mutsucky, mostly applied to the stock version with the 6km torpedoes.

Atlanta: ​Absolutely nothing that can be printed on a family-friendly forum.

Somewhere in off-topic there's thread with lots various names.

 

Chester: Chest hair

Pensacola : Citadela

Wickes: Weakest

Myogi: Miyagi

Wyoming with demolition expert: Fireming

 

For Karlsruhe there's lots of possible names.

Crapruhe

Karlsruin

Finnish "Kaarlen ruuhi" would be "Karl's rowing boat" in English.

 

Atlanta: Craplanta

 

And for some reason fully upgraded St. Louis reminds me about porcupine with all those guns sticking out from it everywhere.

Chester the Molester (sometimes used on the NA server, I believe)

New Orleans = Narleans (ditto)

Derzhi = Derpski

Mikhail Kutuzov = Mikhail Citadelovitch

Ishizuchi = Itchy-scratchy

Atlanta = Waste of Money

There is a name for the Karlsruhe which is a play-on-words in German and isn't complimentary. (Can't remember what it is, though) Hopefully one of the guys who speaks German could tell us if they happen to see this thread.
