You all know me as a DD player and today I purchased the twins.. Asashio and the Asashio B..

Wish I had done this weeks ago...what a DD...an absolute dream to play...

Okay, so she cannot torpedo a DD or Cruiser... but all you need to do is spot and the team does the rest, which is easy I may add with 5.4km concealment..

So far 3 games... she loves to perform and those torpedoes hit hard.

Whilst I agree with the sentiment (I think the vanilla one is my most played ship), I smell trolling....!

I got told twice in two days when going into a game with my asashio that the ship is a waste of time, once by a unicum from a well known clan who quoted some random BS stats (I told him he's pulling stats out his bum hole - I can forget applying to that clan), and second by a lesser life form who clearly had no asashio. These two occasions are by no means isolated incidents either, and while I should be tailoring down my responses to these curious little fellows and perhaps acting a little more tactful, I find myself now going straight for 4 letter words to tell them what I think of their 'opinion' which they just happen to be sharing with anyone who will listen in global chat.

 

Suffice it to say in both the above games, and many like it, I've beaten them in score in the after match results. I'm not bragging, I'm simply implying people should not make too many generalisations about ships they don't have, or know fairly little about.

 

The asashio is a torp boat with limited targets in bb's and cv's only, but it has great concealment and smoke and this means I can spot, cap and smoke up a team mate (which I do a lot of). The guns are not fantasitc in reload, but do pretty good damage and quite opportunist in use, so you'd be stupid to take on a bonefide gunboat on your own, just like you'd be stupid to steer your cv into the middle of a gunfight, or your bb into a capzone with a ouple of dd's around. Nevertheless, hitting an unsure enemy dd for over 2k damage (and more at times) is sometimes enough to render their shorts smelly and brown. It's also what I call my troll boat, seeing so many hapless ships scatter so quickly at the site of my deepwater torps is hilarious, and distracting for their team. There are apparently a lot of people out there whould would rather not take the chance  by sailing in the path of DW torps from my little asashio.

 

We need someone to write a song about it!

Trolling from me? Not on your life.. I am just impressed with her as a DD.. Thought I'd share it.

I would urge caution here, chaps: we don't want everyone to know how good she is - the BBs might get less careless when we're around...!

@Verblonde I have saved the day..    

 

I have just decided Asashio is crap.. if you see me in her you have nothing to fear because the ship plays like a whale and has as much bite as a Goldfish...

 

think I did it?

Just because a ship is bad doesn't mean it can't perform especially considering how abysmal the average player is.

 

The problem with the Asashio is the same as on any high tier IJN DD except Asashio at least has useful torps depending on the situation.

And personally I've never found the concealment advantage of IJN DDs to be an issue in other DDs since a measly 400-500m advantage will practically never make itself felt in an actual combat scenario.

 

So on the off chance that your enemy isn't braindead (which to be fair doesn't happen too often) the value of an Asashio diminishes rapidly since you're completely out of options at that point.

Why did you get 2 of them? Both sucks exactly the same, save for camo:cap_haloween: For 2500 gold in missions? Do you know that it is only 8.52 in the shop? I would take B only if I would at all. Just curious.

Can't speak for anyone else, but a couple of reasons:

  • "I'm a colossal pervert...etc." (see: baby-eating bishop of Bath & Wells).
  • The sensible reason: double daily win bonus; the captain I run in my Asashios is one of only a couple of 19 pointers I have so far, so the extra captain xp matters at this stage.

I'm still finding doubloons useful too, so the extra 2.5K just made it a less idiotic transaction (or gamble, rather - I got my Gimp edition one from a BF crate).

 

To be honest, I would rather have bought an entirely different T8 premium IJN DD, but there isn't anything else available...

I quite agree and when the black ships thread was released I stated that I would probably purchase the black Asashio because I quite like the gold version, secondly Asashio is the only ship I currently have a full specification captain assigned too, although other ships are getting close now and thirdly, the 2.5k gold bonus was a useful addition 

 

In the right circumstances an Asashio can do incredible quantities of damage and the spotting capability is nothing to be sneezed at plus with the recent buff to IJN DD guns she can sometimes hold her own in a 1 on 1 engagement against another DD and end up the winner

Ok. I see. Just noted that for the price of the second Asashio one can get lots and lots of doubloons and buy lots of xp signals. I did not do exact math thought. I would like to get that HSF Forgot the Name Aki Guns Kagero, but she is gone for good. Probably I will gamble Xmas boxes. Maybe something nice will come out of one. (Kamikaze, or Belfast:cap_haloween:)

Harekaze? She's my other 19 pointer...!

Right there is the name for a possible non-HSF version of the same thing, but sans rights issues...!

Meh I won a Latex edition on BF and it's certainly playable as a troll ship in Random Battles.

 

There are far better all round DDs out there but that's not the point. 

 

The best victims are the BBs who are aware of your mega torp power as one whiff of you on a cap means they will border hug and never be a threat again. 

 

Asashio paid for itself when I nuked a full HP GK in one full salvo of torps. Was a Devastating Strike. :Smile_hiding:

@aboomination Another dream dashed on the rocks... thanx...:Smile_sad:

 

Just found a bug... played 3 games in the Asashio-B, 2 defeats and a win just now yet summary doesn't record the win... just to be sure checked summary twice over 6 minutes.

You may well be right.... :Smile_sceptic:...

 

In my last game the non DD's left an enemy Seattle and Cleveland alive for the whole game. Between them they accounted for 3 of 4 DD's... I was killed in the 19th minute by Zao being the last surviving ship after being pinned by radar.... the language directed to the big guns from the dead DD's was at the very least colourful...

 

Oh well, onto the next game where maybe...just maybe....

It's not very fun to feel let down, true. But team support varies for a lot of reasons, and far from all cases of "dd abandonment" are due to player culpability. More than once, I've been fuming at perceived inactivity on the part of some battleship player, only to then find her at the top of the post-battle list with four enemy ships sunk. She obviously used her time on better pursuits than to cover my sorry stern. This has taught me to be very sparing with any amount of critique in the chat; at the most I will send a polite suggestion on a possible course of action. But as I am not the best at keeping track of team chat myself in the middle of a battle, it would be a tad hypocritical to fault someone else for ignoring me...! :Smile_smile:

It royally sucks when this stuff happens; if I'm in something hyper-specialised (so, basically, Asashio), I try and estimate as early as possible if our team's fat lads know to blow up radars, and play accordingly once I have a sense of the answer...

 

I try and not get too stressed though: one game isn't going impact my (already hopeless) WR that badly - there'll be another opportunity along in a minute.
