Asashio torpedoed BBs so much, it transcended the concept of anti-BB topedo... it became the torpedo!

Asashio Contribution to capture: 34%

 

At least when you only play randoms, it's pretty strong boat to cap with. :Smile_hiding:

It can cap. It has a stealth advantage. That's where the strengths end. It is not strong at capping, even if you are in randoms vs potatoes, just alone because if you can cap with this ship, most other same tier DDs could have capped too. And if you run into people competent enough, any other D has more options to get out of harms way than Asashio. And pretty much any other DD has less issues getting spotted by planes even from a T6 CV or scout plane.

you could say there are some commander skills and ship upgrades that are not often used now that will now be used more by people wishing to be pushing in a BB or providing screening with a cruisers at tiers you may find Asashio, as that +25% and +20% spotting range for torps will help, and its not as if everyone wont be aware their is an Asashio on the opposing team and what it represents a danger too, like it is now with many people unaware of its abilities.

I just played my very first game in the Black Asashio. I did 32 309 points of damage with my guns, and 252 points of damage with my torpedoes.

The damage with my guns was done to a Tashkent and a Shimakaze, while defending the cap I had previously secured. In both cases the enemy destroyers were sunk (I had help).

The torpedo damage was done to an enemy Musashi, and the reason it did so little damage was that it was all he had left.

 

Who said the Asashio can't contest caps...? :Smile_veryhappy:

Sure, let me put 3 captain points into Vigilance instead of SI or BoS and get some 1.6 km or so more surface detection range, both which were builds that paid off every match, just so that in the off chance of seeing an Asashio on the enemy team I can see its torps from 1.2 km away instead of 0.8 km. Because reacting to 67 knot (or 72 knots with TA) torpedoes upon spotting them 1.2 km away from my battleship (or CV) is going to allow me to dodge them... not.

 

You dodge Asashio torps by knowing how torp boats work and where they can torp and where not, how to keep pickets of untorpable ships inbetween you and positions Asashio might torp from and hit the WASD every now and then to make the white line indicator useless. Against good Asashios, this might not work for 20 minutes, but hopefully long enough for allies to shoo it away or kill it, while against bad Asashios... always feels nice to gun them down as a BB.

35 Euro buys you a ship. It does not buy you skill...
