    Kii needs a buff - petition?

    Hey guys, I play Kii since a while and generally I love this ship. In random battles I was always fine with that, but since ranked battles started I just noticed how bad this ship is. All the advantages, that this ship has are only secondary properties and the weakness lay in the primary properties. So I was wondering, is a petition for a buff possible, or at least a change/balancing, we don't have to call it buff. Would you change it? People argue with the "secondary properties", that this ship is fine. But: What are one of the main properties of a battleship? Fire power and sustain. Firepower means good main guns, sustain is mainly armor and HP. I think that this ship needs a buff of the main guns, similar to the amagis guns. Most ships have sigma values between 1,8 and 2,0. Bad dispersion like the german bbs have a sigma of 1.8. Even Amagi has 1.8 sigma. So there are also ships with good dispersion like the NC with 2,0. The Kii has 1,7... just why? It's one of the worst value in game, but it's so similar to the Amagi! Just to summarize the Advantages of the Kii vs. the disadvantages +Torpedos: Torpedos are no primary weapons, you don't use it often, it's more an emergency weapon +Good Anti-air: Only good, when there is a CV. How often do you fight against CVs? In ranked maybe 10% or less of the games. -Bad armor: The bad armor makes also the advantage of Torpedos weaker -Bad guns: Primary weapons. They shouldn't be that bad. The combination of bad japanese armor and bad guns make this ship just bad. If you would have good armor like germans, you couldp lay this ship as melee brawler and torpedos would be more useful as well. It feels like you play a Tirpitz with worse dispersion than a Bismarck. Just imagine the Tirpitz would have a worse dispersion than Bismarck, would you play it? If you are for the 3rd option to change something else than guns or armor, write it down here! I'm also glad to here of your experiences with the Kii in ranked! I'm for buffing the guns, buffing armor is more difficult because of realsim

    Mutsu - Yes or No?

    Looking for a premium crew trainer and credit earner that would fit with Japanese BB line, so how competitive is the Mutsu? 8x 16in guns on tier 6 sound pretty good, and I'm getting on well enough with the Ishizuchi + Kongo so thin armor isn't a major problem if the ship is fast. Also considering the Kii, though that might be jumping too far up the tiers. Alternatively could wait and see if Ashitaka comes back on sale. So what's the 2018 verdict on the Mutsu, and how do the different premium Japanese BBs compare?

You search for a key word matching the ship's cammo you want to edit (hint: look at the name of the skin files; some ships have names completely different from their in-game names) Here I'll look for the Aurora, which for some reason they put under the name "avrora" with a "V". You keep hitting next until you find something like this: If the ship has more than one permanent cammo, like the Tirpitz, you'll find them one after the other: Below that you'll find four lines reading "<color0>" thru "<color4>" with a string of numbers. You only need to change those four lines of numbers from whatever values they have to "0.000 0.000 0.000 0.000". Then you save the file. And you're done! Now the cammo is invisible, but you still enjoy the bonuses it offers. Warning: Unlike skins, which you can change, add or remove while running the game and see the changes on your ships by just selecting another ship, then going back to the ship you want, this doesn't work with the game running. You need to close the game and launch it again to see the change. Enjoy!

    Makoto Kobayashi - "exclusive 20 euros"

    I'm guessing someone in WG is laughing at all of us idiots that shelled out extra 20 euros for an exclusive Makoto Kobayashi camouflage? Real nice move WG. Sell something as exclusive, and then few months later give it as nearly free gift...(you still have to get a Kii somehow, but...) 20 euros, WG. And then, on top of everything, a mission giving away that camo, and those who purchased it get a middle finger. (or wasted 20 euros, because it was gonna be "exclusive")... Not even a container, or god forbid - doubloons for the worth of camo...You know...To show you didn't real mean to mock the rest of us -.- The camo is tier X premium camouflage - +20% extra credits, -50% to costs after battle and 100%xp bonus. That is worth 5000 doubloons, and that's what we paid for... Another slap from WG. Lame, WG, real lame. Don't get me wrong, it's good for others that will get it, it would have been a real nice "gift" from WG for all those that bought Kii. Especially those that got it dropped from containers/gift boxes. Nothing for us paying for your exclusive products WG?

    Are you KIIding me!??!

    Hi WG, I understand that Wargaming is first and foremost a business company, aiming at income and expansion. That's where my understanding of your behavior and policies stops: You advertise premium ships for something they are not. You advertise armor, mobility, gun power, and then the product is paper ship, that turns like a sunk wreck of Bismarck and scores penetrating hits every few hours... I have already reimbursed some ships for the obvious false advertisement - Mutsu was advertised like an amazing ship, I bought it, and found that tier 7 and 8 BB's penetrate and citadel it no matter how much you angle, so much that Amagi once scored 4 citadels frontally against it- ALMOST 90 degrees angle to him. I understand - tier 8 and so on...but...meh. So, not learning my lesson, I coughed out money for Kii. Even took that ugly disgusting piece of garbled up garbage that you call kobayashi camo or whatever. I had a few games where I somehow scored some nice damages - I think I could count the games with more than 100k damage on fingers of my 2 hands. But it felt good at times, even very good. Never great. So, now ranked started, and I decided to try Kii. Thinking - 10 gun tier 8 BB, should devastate cruisers, has nice AA in case of rare CV's, and a decent health pool. Even torps, as a last resort. Before I say the following - I am fairly decent player. I understand shell velocity, angles and what not. But even German BB guns are more accurate with less random shell trajectories. You can't even compare this ship to American tier 8 BB's, not at any range. I've been trying for last three days, and even tho I went from lowest rank to rank 7 in 3 days, I found myself spitting bile and feeling an ulcer grow inside my stomach every time I would play Kii - except for one game that somehow stretched out and I scored 140k damage or so. List of complaints: 1) Shooting broadside cruisers at short/medium ranges - Edinburgh for example - I catch him as he turns - full salvo, perfectly aimed (using dynamic crosshairs), shells look fine as they fly out, and then as they land on Edinburgh, just as I am about to grin at the citadel notifications, I get - 1 penetration, 1 overpenetration, 2 bounces. Out of 10 shells, at some 10-12km. What happened? Some shells simply decided that they will go almost entire WIDTH of Edinburgh over him, and a couple of them went half the length behind the Edinburgh. Generally - shooting from Kii makes you feel that your guns are arranged as V on the turrets, and not as II. 2) Angling, armor, brawling - an imaginary thing - another thing that was advertised as reliable or even with higher values than the Kii's brother Amagi. In reality - the worst BB armor I have yet experienced at any tier - except for the disgusting Mutsu, which is not even to be considered a ship. I lost 50-55k HP while angled sligthly (about 60 degrees) to a NCAL, and it wrecked me - 3 citadels and number of penetrations/overpens. Just last battle - which finally tilted me into ranting - Alabama rushes me (he had backup tho), at 6km starts giving me broadside, shoots front guns at me almost completely angled into her, nearly bow towards her guns 20,000 damage, I take it, smile, and now it's my 10 guns turn - WHAM! full broadside, just above waterline and under the front turrets - 4 shells hit - AT 5 BLOODY KILOMETERS, 2300 damage or whatever is the score for 2 overpens. The rest of the 10-gun BB AP salvo at 4km got either shattered, deflected or even missed. I have even put the Yamamoto captain just so that I could see the shells more clearly - what is happening to this supposedly deadly beast - and I cringe at every salvo! 3) Manoeuvring - The ship has maybe the worst turning of all the tier 8's, I can't remember how Amagi was, been a while since I used it. Dodging torps - only if you started turning by accident before you spot the torps. 4) Turret traverse - it's almost decent - with expert marksman skill! ALMOST. Has WG actually spent any time or effort on actually tracking the use of the latest Japanese premium BB's? I haven't seen a single Ashitaka since the release, bar the few after the first few days on the release, and even then they were ultra rare - saw them popping like pop-corn repeatedly every battle. Mutsu, I have literally seen maybe 3-4 times since September! Kii, I am rarely meeting it in randoms, this is not even funny anymore. WG, do you have any intention of considering fair treatment and investing some effort into making your customers not feeling like they have been beaten, then robbed and violated with a number of your products? Has this ship (Kii) received a silent nerf in the last few months? Have you any intention of going back to drawing board and at least acknowledging you have screwed up and and screwed the customers over for their money and nerves and trust? The worst of all - a clan mate asked me the other day about Kii, I haven't been playing it much recently, and I told him what I remembered, it's delicate, requires planning in advance with the turret traverse and gun accuracy, but CAN BE MADE to work...I would now really feel ashamed if he spent his real money buying this poor crippled thing!
  7. I am looking at adding the T8 Japanese Kii for upcoming RANKED play. I have questions about possibly running the Inertia Fuse Skill on the Captain. I love the AA firepower of the thing, but am concerned about the Akizuki guns being the secondary anti-ship armament. I have the Aki, and it is nearly useless without IFHE. Would adding IFHE to the Kii Captain give it a reasonable secondary punch? Capable of at least fending off some noob DD players with the sheer volume of fire? And would it affect the 410mm HE shells negatively? Would I get overpen with the HE shells?

    Kii - le Amagi rimodernate?

    Visto che non c'è una discussione su questa premium, apro il 3D, per raccogliere pareri sulle Kii. Sul forum internazionale mi sembra che i giudizi siano decisamente negativi. Oltre alla corazza di carta, tipica delle navi giapponesi in generale, viene messo sotto accusa la scarsa gittata dell'artiglieria principale. A quanto ho capito, la AA è buona grazie ai 100mm Type 98, mentre i siluri non danno alcun vantaggio apprezzabile. Chi l'ha provata, che giudizio ne ha tratto? Vale la pena acquistarla, o meglio orientarsi su altre premium Tier VIII?
  10. So.... finished the mission.. but the camo isn't visible in the camo section! I got confirmation that I got it, the camo is in the inventory list.. but not in the camouflage section for Kii.... WTF WG!

    The Kii in Preview

    The Kii in Preview So the newest addition to the premium fleet is, actually, a bit of a surprise. Today, up for the test, is the IJN Kii. To those not too much into prototypes, the Kii was a proposed and planned Battleship design for the 8-8 fleet plan of the Imperial Japanese Navy. Only 2 of these fast battleships were laid down of the four. None, however, were completed due to the limitations of the Washington Naval Treaty. So what’s it like in game? Let’s find out! 10.9.17 First Test Iteration The Kii itself is very closely related to the non-premium Amagi, the most striking differences are the thicker belt and superior AA, while losing out on the speed and reload department. It should be noted that Kii's armour layout is different to the Amagi's, and Amagi having superior torpedo protection. Pro: Con: Very good AA Strong Armour Torpedoes with strong angles. Loss on Speed vs Non-premium Reload time Less effective armour compared to Amagi Survivability, Maneuverability and Concealment: The Kii boasts strong armour and about average hitpoints. Her top speed is just shy of 30knots making her 3rd slowest on her tier. With CE and CSMod1 you can bring down Kii's detectability to 13.4km (Tirpitz: 12.3km) Guns, Torps and Anti-Aircraft: Slightly less Accurate than the Amagi, (about 10 metres more dispersion), otherwise almost identical with same turret setup (A-B bow C-D-E aft). The biggest downside to the Kii's guns, is frankly the reload. which is an appalling 35 seconds. This seriously bites into Kii's DPM potential, especially in the long run. Did I mention Kii gets torpedoes? 4 tubes per side, located in the aft. Suprisingly good angles none-the-less. Comparable to the Mutsuki's pre-line-split-stock torps (6km with approximately 12,000 alpha, 63kn speed) The AA is where the Kii really shines in it's class. The Kii is armed with a 3 level suite of 100mm DP guns (which can be found on the Akizuki), the Japanese version "Chi" Bofors (an unusual setup for a Japanese Battleship) and the usual (rather lackluster in comparison) Nipponized Hotchkiss 25mm MG. Recommended Mods.: Recommended Captain Skills: Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 Tier 4 Gameplay "She's got more armour but in the wrong places. Citadel armour (turtleback) is significantly cut. Then again the Kii is not an Amagi. She trades speed, firepower and effective armour for AA and torps if you compare the two. Comparing her to a Tirpitz, Kii trades effective brawl armour, speed and firepower for AA" I'd liken Kii to an Amagi, with an Akizuki strapped to each side. She has solid armour, is able to tank and bounce effectively, while also having strong AA. Make no mistake, Kii is not an Amagi. Her Armour layout is different, the torpedo protection lackluster. Kii works best at medium range, but she doesn't mind too much going in close. Complimentary to her 10 main guns, she can also surprise her enemies with a dab of the 3 key. She reminds me a lot of the Tirpitz. The Tirpitz, however, has a fast reload and fast rotating turrets, making her an excellent Brawler. The Kii tries to compensate these faults with her strong armour. The lack of DPM puts her in more of a support role. She's able to tank while allies cause the bulk damage, or rain down supporting fire and AA from medium range. I didn't get to test the Kii while divisioning, but I suspect that she would excel with a little support of Division ships. If the 35 second reload issue is fixed, I could very much recommend this ship to anyone looking for a tier 8 battleship with a bit of a challenge. following now is a replay (result screen in spoiler bracket). 18.9.17 Second Test Iteration (likely final) In this buff, Kii gained:

    Kii-class BB for japanese premium?

    I just read a very unconfirmed rumor somewhere that they're in some early stage of testing for the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kii-class_battleship According to wikipedia, it should be a near exact copy of the Amagi, but with more armor and less speed: "The Kii class was based largely on the preceding Amagi-class battlecruisers, which were in turn based on a less-armored Tosa-class design. The only major difference between the Kiis and Amagis was their speed and armor - the Amagis were faster, and the Kiis had a thicker belt. Despite this lineage, the Kiis were classified as "fast battleships" by the Japanese, as they had decided to end the distinction between "battleship" and "battlecruiser"." It was designed in the early 1920s (a.k.a. tier 5 to 6). In reality it would have had 8 torpedo launchers (most likely the fixed ones, 4 per side) and only the Nagato and Amagi-like secondary guns and only a total of 4 AA guns. What you see in the pictures (dual-purpose turrets and cruiser-like torpedo launchers) are complete fiction. Is this good, or would you still prefer the rumored A-hull Amagi?
