  1. Got a ST Ship E-mail?

    So I was minding my own business and suddenly the following WG E-mail hits my inbox: Now, I'm no Supertester nor have the ships been added to my account. Am I right in thinking WG fudged up and sent it to everybody? XD
  2. Collectors club

    Shame, should've bought her when she was unplayable garbage for collection purposes after all back then I guess.
  3. Collectors club

    I'm mainly wondering if Graf Zeppelin will be available through it even if it's being held back because people aren't happy about how the redesign worked out. Especially since Sub Octavian stated they were holding her back for general sale until after the CV rework. Now I know WG's policy can change, they said they wouldn't drop Kaga/Big E until after the rework as well.... but I'd like to know when to expect Graf Zeppelin roughly. If not through the club, mayhap you have more insight on Graf's reappearance?
  4. Azur Lane Collab

    So still no word on the Admiral Hipster Loli flag? Getting frustrated by not knowing where that went. >_>
  5. Azur Lane Collab

    I wonder where the chibi tsundere Hipper flag went. >_>
  6. I got about 1m free exp sitting around, might as well buy the Soviet Bias Battle Boat.
  7. Z-39 with IFHE is good fun, penning 33mm of armor means you can bowpen T8 BBs with her HE... I've been finding 2-3k HE volleys a reliable thing with her if you don't hit a shell on a turret or something.
  8. My reason isn't in there, I got ill and still atm. Took some time off from being sulky pouty in bed to post here though.... Still I cannot be bothered to get back into it; didn't get into the groove properly and feeling like a wet paper towel atm won't help any game I'd try to play. XD
  9. Eh, we tend to stick together for the first cap to pop any and all DDs contesting the first cap and then we split up to cap where needed with Asashio carpet torping BB heavy areas, Kidd providing AA support and Harekaze trying to contest caps and spotting torps. Sadly atm we're only running 2 man DD divisions since the third player is mostly busy with irl stuff. Also in case you're wondering why IJN Premiums get shafted but USN Premiums tend to be on the upper end of the spectrum (after supreme soviet supremacy):
  10. Like I said, I may be biased to Asashio in what I'd like from her. Still, having a way to scare off cruisers wouldn't be a bad thing; and 3 man dd divisions are mainly for the purpose of trolling the enemy and having fun. They're not meant to be great or OP, they're meant for giddy enjoyment of oneself.
  11. The drop in price'd be nice but frankly speaking, she's still a fine companion for a Kidd and Harekaze in a division. Kidd covers her AA weakness and deals with DDs well enough, though I've found myself able to fight most enemy ships in Asashio as she is now, my only true gripe with her is that the torps should hit CAs. If they did she'd prolly be too powerful, but at least she'd make a bigger impact on games. Maybe I'm asking for too much but in earnest, the pre-nerf Shiratsuyu state would also not be bad for her.
  12. So basically you want to play a stock Kagero in T7 and have Asashio become an Ashitaka-like ship?
  13. And that'd likely not sell since that's just a worse stock Kagero in T8. They'd have to drop her to T7, keep the reload booster, keep the Kagero guns and then you'd have a slightly better Akatsuki which would be "OP powercreep zomfg rage". If they'd plop that into T8 you'd get a stock Kagero with Reload Booster and no need to be in the game, still I think the DWTs should've at least also hit CAs and maybe not CLs? Though that might cause issues with coding for Mogami since her designation changes when you equip the 155mm/203mm guns.
  14. If anything, the fact that she has DWT is kinda retarded cuz she sank HNLMS Piet Hein with a torpedo during the Battle of Badung Strait. And in a way, it may be better that I didn't design or balance this ship cuz I'd be somewhat biased towards her due to her service record on KC to me. Then again, she'd not have much use for her depth charges in WoWS so I dunno how that'd work out. Still, a gimmick boat is better than a downgraded stock hull Kagero; I would've been forced to skip her if she'd have been that. While I wish they'd have just made her a 'better' Kagero with less base hp, slightly worse guns but better torps and worse AA. Her AA was pretty lackluster to be fair, that's how she sank in the end, bombed and strafed to crud while trying to rescue Arashio's and Nojima Maru survivors. In a way, the ship they implemented bearing her name is unworthy of her name but at least she stands out and isn't a dressed down Kagero A hull with no distinct identity of her own. The outrage surrounding her controversial armament and gimmicky nature at least made her name known to more people, something that'd not have happened if she had been her original planned form. She'd have been lost and forgotten in the waves of premium disappointments, at least now she stands out and has made a splash. For better or for worse at least the ship's name is associated with something, primarily all the BBs on the enemy team running to the map borders whenever they see her on the opposing team.
  15. I figured from the Arashio avatar that you liked the class to some extent at least.... :P I mean I adore my Asashio, she got her ring (yes that's my Asashio in the image v.v) when I bought her for WoWS; same story with Kaga. And so far Asashio hasn't let me down, the ship isn't as good as I'd have hoped but tbh, with the anti-IJN bias WG maintains to please Putin-sama.... I didn't really think they'd make her OP on a Belfast, Kutuzov or Imperator level. To do that she'd have had to have gotten torps that hit cruisers, better gun traverse and maybe the option to slot in F3 cruise miss.... torpedoes. As for availability... after the shitshow by the battlebabies and the CCs about how this ship was toxic for the game; she may not come back on sale. I could be wrong there but she's a ship to keep an eye on; though Harekaze deffo won't come back after the collab ends and Harekaze is also a great ship to own. Long story short, Harekaze is better for the overall gameplay aspect and Asashio is fun if you like a challenge and want to make some BBs cry. I'd not recommend either for a novice captain but if I had to, Harekaze is more forgiving than Asashio is because Harekaze can at least repel pesky CAs with her torps long enough to run away.
