    USN dd's and their mortar guns

    RN 120s are no better. And sure, we can talk about giving USN better ballistics when IJN 127 mm guns wouldn't require me to move my ship to compensate for the poor turret traverse. Or when German guns do actually good HE damage.

    AA skills on AA cruiser

    BFT is the sole skill you ever would take and then only if you got nothing better anyway (RN CLs for example can afford to put points into AA skills without compromising themselves too much). Upping flak damage is a joke (especially on anything with defAA) and Massive AA Fire is only useful on ships that have no real AA, where you don't care about your sector AA increase. Ships like maybe Atago.

    Most fun ships per tier, sept 2019?

    Tachibana is pretty similar. Put a 19 pt Akizuki captain on it and you just roflstomp the opposition most of the time, coop or not.

    Can we talk about the blatant lie that is Smolensk?

    Guess Yoshino and Salem need buffs then.

    Monarch is utter trash!

    Load AP. Monarch isn't for HE spam. Monarch can fire HE at bow-in BBs and 27 mm plating cruisers, but for the most part should use AP. It isn't terribly accurate, but it still beats the Germans, Richelieu and Roma. And compared to all other T8 BBs, it has the best reload and thus dpm. Combined with good concealment, Monarch is a solid mid-range BB. 28 knots is low end, but not incredibly low. USN has that too. Vladivostok is 29 knots. Lenin is 28.5 knots. Compared to what exists on other tiers like 21 knot Colorado vs 32 knot Gneisenau, this is nothing. Low citadel got replaced by getting an improved repair party. Monarch might no longer be able to broadside to use all its guns in every situation (at least vs BBs, against cruisers and DDs you still can), but it has the best repair qualities at T8 with 0.6% repaired per second, 60s repair CD and 75% of pen damage repairable. As long as you don't get focused down, eat a bunch of torps or cits, Monarch is pretty hard to kill, also because of the good concealment. Admittedly, the ship needs more skill now.

    Likely, full Leander-class is about the cheapest you get for grinding, but if you want to throw in cruisers that are useful: London is best RN CA retro. Preparing to retro that one isn't bad. Sheffield is one I personally run with Leander and Ajax, but with level disadvantage and no LB, it is hard to keep her hp higher than the others, so, not really useful. Yorck and Exeter are kinda useful as retrofits, but London is still better Depending on where you grind the exp, I'd use a combination of Leander class and London/Yorck/Exeter, with Leander bringing the performance and the others being just there to get the exp. But likely running CAs is eithermore expensive in oil or they aren't LB and suck even more than RN CA do normally when not retro'd. On the other hand, when you get your London and such retrofitted, equipped and to proper levels, they are pretty solid units.

    Yudachi: before you buy it

    Asashio is at least good at something, Yuudachi basically sucks in every role. Wouldn't play either, but I sure as hell don't see a point of giving WG money to play a ship much worse than what I can play anyway for free.

    I'm just saying, your logic rather makes it more likely than not.

    The CN server already has the retrofit, thus such inconsistency in translation might very much be a hint that we'll get the retrofit on EN too.

    ST - Gorizia and Mainz

    Mainz also has less HE damage on the shells. Frankly, I'd just have given Mainz the Nürnberg guns with all the stats of these guns, including the 16.5 km range, because that'd give them some good dpm, the range still is good and when compared with the likes of Cleveland you trade the consumable loadout and better concealment for close range torps and armour. Would be a solid ship. Like this, just go get a Bayard, I'd say.

    Got Conte di Cavour from shop too? Also, that moment when you check Trento skills just to see it's Full Firepower and All-out Assault.

    Littorio in general has a great personality. I just hope that barrage skill gets a bit more usefl as I level it up.

    Armada: Yūdachi

    Huang He does not have deep water torps. It can hit DDs/cruisers.

    Armada: Yūdachi

    Tell that to Huanghe then. I disagree that it is OP, given: the rest of the ship is still bad. unlike combinations such as smoke+hydro or smoke+radar, there is little synergy between the two consumables that would allow an incredibly strong play warranting being OP. All you get is being able to throw out 16 crap torps in short succession without sacrificing your smoke. this especially becomes relevant when you consider that this ship is basically bad across the board. Unless it can make the most out of a 16 torp wall of easily spotted torps, it's just not a very worthwhile ship.

    Armada: Yūdachi

    Crap. No. 15 km torps that are second only to 20 km Shima torps in their detectability and how much reaction time the enemy gets. Bought at the cost of: torpedo damage (only 15k) concealment (yes, that thing that kept Shiratsuyu relevant in T7) gun reload (Shinonome outguns you) It's a garbage boat that isn't worth a dime, unless you like spamming 15 km torps in the hopes of hitting stuff. Frankly, take an Akatsuki and you get better speed, better guns, better torps, more torps per minute and while your concealment isn't great, neither is Yuudachi's. It pays off to look up the things WG isn't telling you.
