Just noticed all these extra Premiums in the shop today, So i scrolled down looking for something to take my fancy, I play mainly Japanese DD's and British Cruisers.. But nothing!.. there must be every other type available but no IJN DD's or British Cruisers.  All i want is something like a Fubuki, Kagero or a Fiji to grind Captain XP and credits on, (dont even mention that Tachibana Lima lol) 

 

Are we going to get any T6 and above IJN DD's without deep water torps  or British Cruiser?

RN premium CLs:

  • Payfast
    • Tier 7
    • Not for sale anymore (thank god for that, it's f-ing broken)
      • Afaik can still be dropped in a SC

IJN premium DDs:

  • Tachibana / Tachibana Lima
    • Tier 2 lol
  • Fujin / Kamikaze / Kamikaze R
    • Tier 5
    • Same as Payfast - I hope they're removed from sale (altho don't know if they are). One of the best sealclubbers, and there's no denying that they're well within the OP side of things
  • Shinonome
    • Tier 6
    • Acquired by finishing the 2nd campaign (Honorable Service?)
  • Asashio
    • Tier 8
    • Appropriate reaction to someone offering it to you would be "lol no ty"
  • Herakaze
    • Tier 8
    • The one premium IJN DD you want to get
    • No idea when or even if she'll be for sale again

 Shinonome is something im slowly working on, Harekaze is probably the 1 i should've got when i had the chance, I'm hoping it makes a re-appearance soon.. Would solve my IJN premium issue :) 

 

i'd swap all my premiums for a Belfast... Nuff said! =/ 

 

Cheers

Huang He is, essentially, a British Cruiser, as is Perth, if you're desperate. We live in hope of WG giving in and maybe giving us a Tier VI Penelope - given that they've already modelled the ship, it can only be a matter of time... and maybe an Ayanami -  Fubuki with more of an original armament?

Never met one, I assume?

 

Payfast has smoke + radar. Don't even need to go any further talking about the ship itself

I have one.

So I know what it has.

Now tell me what you think is broken. I am interested in your opinion and am not looking for a fight.:cap_wander_2:

In the wrong hands it's pretty bad. In the hands of unicum players, it can vastly overperform.

 

It's only downsides are that it lacks torps and can blow up easily, its concealment, guns and consumables combine into a very powerful ship.

Because all of the tools that it has. Lets enumerate all:

  • Smoke + Hydro: Can get unspoted while being able to see incoming torps.
  • Radar: You go near a cap, see an enemy smoke or a DD gets spotted and smokes up, pop up radar and goodbye DD (he dies or leaves the cap with a good chunk of HP gone).
  • Can slot Concealment module: Allows to have less than 10km concealment and if you get spotted you pop up radar and you will get that pesky DD.
  • Has HE so can spam it at your discretion (angled ships, start fires...),

It has it's downsides, true, but the amount of tools makes it OP for sure.

It's strong and not a BB, that's not supposed to happen in World of Battleships

I'll bite - Belfast is OP because of toolbox consumables, great stealth and t8 upgrade slot. I am in no way a great player but on Monday divvied up with a mate, me in Belfast and him in GM. We had some clement matchmaking (top tier) and basically drove round the map hovering up cap points and dds. It's fun and relaxing, but not really a challenge by the time one of us were spotted the enemy DD was already doomed (inside radar envelope and needing to make a 180 turn to escape).

 

[Edit]: The other point is: it is particular unfair with divisions and consumable sharing
