Does anyone feel like the Zao is in need of a buff with the general power creep that’s happening? Maybe a small buff to reload or something like that.

She recently got 12 km japanese torpedoes efectively making her one of strongest and most versatile ship in the game. What else would you need?

....no......

 

Btw maybe ask for a Conq buff also? Seeing you have 55k average, there must be something wrong with that ship also.

i think it needs a buff. i would prefer 20km torps on it.. those 12km are just too ineffective on a cruiser.

With laser accuracy, great ballistics, great range, great firechance on HE, awesome penetration AP, great manouverability, trolliah armor, epic concealment and 12 km torps?

 

No, zao does definatly not need a buff, with the legendary module its borderline OP...

If these are 20 km Shima torps, the 12 km torp option is better. 20 km Asashio torps lack the anti-cruiser capability and thus aren't any good too, when you consider things like CB.

The Zao was buffed recently with 12 km torps. It is annoying to answere to one liner. I hope your mind offers the capability to describe some reasons for a buff.

My average isn’t 55k its 65k which is better than your 63k, I was just asking a genuine question

I think the Henri IV is worse off than any other tier 10 cruiser. Its true that the Zao doesnt have the gimmicks that other cruisers have, it doesnt have the armor of the hindenburg or the moskva, dowsnt have the RoF of the Des Moines... but where the other ships excell at something, they suck at other things.. the Zao can do everything well which is why I think its one of the best tier 10 cruisers.

Fire chance should be higher. :Smile_hiding:

What a horrendous proposal. What Zao needs is Asashio's torpedoes!

Clearly it needs reload cutting to 4s base plus Minotaur heal and smoke generator.

 

Seriously though, having recently obtained Zao it's a strong ship that performs well in T10 games.

nah zao needs torps that can kill dd-s.. ca are meant to be dd counter. deep water torps cant kill them. almost every other nation has radar to counter dd-s.

Its borderline broken OP with the new torps.

Buffing this ship is asking for trouble. You want a better zao? Play Hindenburg.
