    Rate of Fire

    And from what era is the magic radar then? And that whole BB will now camp more beacuse of *insert recent change/new shipline* is very much a strawman argument. Bad BB players will always find and excuse to camp regardless of reason.

    NO torpedo detection info.

    This is sadly too hard for him as he seems to have a huge problem mousing over things in general as evidence by around 3-4 whole topics.

    Ibuki, the weakest link of IJN Cruisers?

    I don't disagree. If I want to play a powerful 203 armed cruiser I go for the Charles Martel, and if I want a 155 armed cruiser I go for the Cleveland. The Mogami is still a fun cruiser IMO but what it needs in order to work is a survivability buff. It has firepower in droves but offers no utility and takes citadel damage like almost no other ship in the game. If they could make the citadel smaller or make sure so that you don't get overmatched by everything then perhaps the Mogami can find its niche.

    Don't sell it, go through it. While it is flimsy you do learn how the Zao plays. And the Zao is 100% worth the grind, and everything you learn in the Ibuki can be put to much better use in the Zao due to usable armor and fantastic guns.

    belfast set up

    This build pretty much. Alternatively you could switch out EM for JOA as the Belfast is stack full of consumables.

    Ibuki, the weakest link of IJN Cruisers?

    Ruddershift Mogami with a dedicated IFHE captain is pretty good tbh. Ibuki, well I never liked the IBuki. It's not awful, it is a stealthy 203 mm armed cruiser with great torps so there is that. It's just not that big of a step up from the Mogami as the only things you gain is range and a heal (ok it sounds like much but it really isn't). It is just an underwhelming cruiser. Mogami with 155 and IFHE can put out some outstanding DPM and is really nimble and you can use those torps a lot mroe since the playstyle promotes it. Ibuki spams HE at range, and that is pretty much it. You are still flimsy and the only redeeming factor is range and a heal. On a side note, the weird reload progression is probably a relic from the Beta. In the Beta the Myoko used to be tier 8 and the Mogami tier 7. They then switched the tiers but barely changed anything. So the Myoko became top tier forever and the Mogami sat in a corner and cried if you put the 203 mm guns on it.

    A Newbie Question - HOW can they hit me instantly ?

    Bit of both I would imagine. Speaking out of personal experience, I spectated several really good players in Red Orchestra and Rising Storm, and could not believe how they could see people sometimes through thick foliage and get the godlike timing of being exactly where they needed to be at exactly the right time. Still it did help to watch those players. I am still not that good at the games even though I enjoy them, but I am enjoying them much more after getting that sort of eye opener.

    Going to have to erase these thoughts out of your mind. Yes there are some iffy mods, yes some of them work. But most of these just help bad players get up to average levels. Good or really good players will just be hindered by such mods as stated above. Aiming comes from practice and in some cases pure guesswork. And if you go around blaming mods or cheats you will never improve on a personall level.

    Operation Narai

    You need to open your wallet in order to win. Slight sarcasm aside (not by much honestly) Narai is currently on the border of Cherry Blossom easy and Ultimate Frontier frustrating. Get a team that communicates and have played the operation before, pretty fun and somehwat easy. Get suiciding cruisers and passive BB's, or alternatively people that refuse to tell eachother what they are doing, you are pretty certainly going to loose.

    IFHE on Gearing YY gunboat builds.

    IFHE on DD's in general is a waste. Those 4 points are often better spent elsewhere, and if you really want better gunpower BFT, DE and in some cases AFT provide more useful bonuses overall.

    Japanese Destroyers

    I know right. And when people have been yelling for torp buffs for over a year they did actually give it a small detection buff to the 12 km torps from 1.9 to 1.7 km.. And then 2 months later we get Pan Asian DD's. Go figure.

    Japanese Destroyers

    You have a gunfocused line (Harugomo) and then the torpedo focused line (Shimakaze). The gun focused line is arguably the most consistent line of the 2, and from tier 8 and upwards you get a serious amount of Dakka. Decent torps, scary gunpower, fairly sluggish. The torp line still has some gems despite all the nerfs. Fubuki is still from what I can gather a good little boat, and the Kagero and Yugumo are not halfbad either. The problem is the Shimakaze and WG's hate for IJN torpedoes for some reason. You have at first glance the most potent torpedoes in the game, with high damage, often high number of them, good speeds and range. But the detection range of the torpedoes are in general garbage so they are pretty easy to dodge. And when the torpedoes fail you have no meaningful gunpower to rely on and while you are stealthy you can only really cap empty cap points and spot. Meanwhile the other tier 10 DD's have better gun power, useful torpedoes and better utility. Honestly the gunboat line is the one I would recommend, and I don't think that will change until something drastic happens to the Shimakaze I'm afraid.

    Domintaion and Destroyers

    I would much rather take 1 suicidal DD than 4 borderhuggers. Atleast the suiciding DD can spot. And Domination>all other gamemodes.

    Upcoming T5 Ranked

    Ranked tier 5? Sigh why does everyone ignore tier 6, one of the most balanced tiers and is at the moment arguably least powercreeped. Oh well tier 5 it is then, time to dust of the Gremlin.
