From my own experience I have to say that the Nerf of Yeuyang was not the death blow I expected...

In fact the reload is just the same as my longer range Gearing torpedoes (Well almost)

In the 6 games played since the Nerf I have experienced 1 defeat and today broke my damage record in her recording 197.000..

How have you guys fared in her post Nerf?

Chung Mu is now more versatile than Yuyang. Though before the nerf my stats for Yuyang and Chung Mu were almost identical. I’ve since found that taking out the Chung Mu is more effective than playing the YY. Chung Mu isn’t effected by being in T10 games but offers the better torp potential and good gun power. 

 

Now asking if YY’s nerf has effected Clan Wars game play and usage would be interesting as that’s why the nerf most likely happened.

She simply is not fielded even half as much anymore, most clans seem to be using Gearings or Shimas in her place now. (Bear in mind in CW's it's pretty rare for a DD to use it's guns much unless it's a Harugumo.)

Yes, I've played YY after the nerf, 5 games. Did I find the nerf to be a handicap??? It's a nerf, ofc it's a handicap from before. Is YY still playable - yes.  No, I won't sell YY.

I hate it in the current state, no point selling it as I've port slots spare and it costs nothing to keep.

 

It's very poor knife fighting and the torp reload is bad, I use the Fletcher torps on Gearing so Yuey reload feels awful. Ship is gutted in my opinion with poor offensive and defensive capabilities and a total waste of doubloons on the perma-camo.

No argument about it being much worse off after the nerf. It was massive, but it's still has decent defensive qualities with the fast smoke reload and numerous smokes. More boring to play though and I think the nerf was too big given the various buffs on other dds lately + new dds that kind of counter YY. Not a waste with perma camo. It was a OP ship for a time, still very strong before the nerf. Now it's very average... maybe below. Still playable, but there are better and more fun options. Chung Mu is probably a better ship overall.

the ship is dead to me. End of. I see no reason whatsoever to make myself feel inadequate by playing this castrated version of a formerly awesome ship. Good job WG Balancing Department! :cap_like:

I play it in CW for obvious reasons its still gun reload spec couse thats the only thing i have to defend myself against other dds so a no brainer there, but it hurted the ship, badly... Now you cant really go toe to toe in a gun duel with gearing not to mention other t10 gunships and your option to go as torp/spot platform is a) ridiculous sunce you cant defend yourself with torps and b) they got nerfed as well

You assume WG have a balancing department :Smile_trollface:

 

They either flip coins when deciding changes or get that fat ginger cat in some of their blog videos to choose :cat_bubble:

 

YY changes are a joke when other newer DDs sail around with high firepower...

YY is still playable but went from above average (not OP IMHO) to below average. I’ll grind out the remaining XP for the legendary module on it, after that the captain will move to the Chung Mu. I reckon that’s the more fun ship to play after this nerf.

It is. LM for YY is a another travesty about the ship...

the newest worst t10 dd! lets nerf it because everyone uses in clan wars comrade. i can not wait to nerf my henri 4 cause people seem to use it quite a bit in clan wars now.

OH SO WG who was/is more op yueyang or the dirty harugumo that made the entire russian destroyer line obsolete( except grozovoi it is still  very good even tho i do not own one). gunboat destroyers that can pen up to 32mm of armor with IPHE and get 12km torpedoes and torpedo reload booster+super rate of fire... but i guess radar is more op that those so lest nerf yueyang.

also i will never play this boat ever again util they reverse the nerfs. it will seat as port decoration from now on.

Depends on you definitions. If one can make pretty much any DD work, does that mean nerf didn't constitute a death blow, or does it just make one a masochist?

 

But why bother,  when there is a superior ship available ( Chung Mu)?  

 

In my opinion that is a death blow (except maybe for CB, and dd guns dont matter all that much there. Kinda ironic, considering WGs arguments for nerfing the ship)

Isn't the LM trash? 

Correct me if I'm wrong but it sits where the Concealment Module is so to equip it you make the ship useless...

Guessing he wants to finish the quest then keep the pretty awful LM in inventory, I've never (nor will I ever while it's like it is) equipped the one I gained.

Since this ship is now basically only interesting for CW, LU probably is not a good idea, nerfed concealment, nerfed radar for getting some of the gun and torp reload back... :fish_boom:

Just downgraded to Chung Mu... first game today.

 

339348868_Screenshot(648).thumb.png.cb50b20c6333ddf79ac59acb7826599b.png

 

Better concealment by 0.1km

Faster torpedo reload by 30 seconds but slower torpedoes at 66 knots with lower range at 10.5km..

With +6 to maneuverability but slower turn circle by 0.6 seconds...

 

But she does work.

Dont forget faster gun reload at 3,3 s vs YYs 4s  (has 1 more gun tho)

 

Played 2 Chung Mu games and both were 100k+ 3 kill+ games.

YY is not even comparable to this powerhouse.

Gunpower is of most importance on DDs. 

 

YY is dead to me.

If they then move to Nerf Chung Mu it will be proof enough that they are deliberately killing certain DD lines.. I wonder what will happen when the RN DD's are out in force because as a DD primary myself I like them..

Instead of expecting players to improve, using their brains, they dumb down to accommodate the morons which will mean those with the intelligence to adapt will disappear and games will become stagnant festering pools of garbage... Really bad business sense to drive away potential custom.

Yep I’m 20.000 base XP away from obtaining it. Not planning on using the module indeed. Just want the personal mission out of the list ;-)
