In case anyone hasn't seen, Yoshino will be in the next patch (Thursday?): https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/game-updates/update-085-rogue-wave/

 

I only draw people's attention to this as the Armoury ship voucher renews in the next few hours, and this news might alter what people want to do with their voucher...

Speaking of, does the preliminary assessment from the community that she's rather like a T10 Atago still hold?

 

Might be rather tempted, if so...

She should be slightly less glass (more like porcelain?), certainly large cruiser with torpedo option is novelty. Considering she, just like Azuma doesn't like brawls due to extra high citadel, have noice range and 20km torpedoes, she would fit just right into campy meta with occasional memes

 

Besides, didn't Yoshie got reload buff to 18.5s or WG is doing WG things as usual?

Well, most of the CCs don’t like her, basically saying, she’s an upgunned Ibuki. Check the vids for more information.

Considering I like iBucky more than Zao...

 

What I don't like is fact she is large cruiser, thus with full fire duration, making tank specced Yamato captain rather handy.

And, shockingly enough, price is inline with Salem, at 248k coal.

 

Yep. Used my coupon to get the Jean Bart at discount and with Yoshino surprisingly not getting a bloated coal price I'll keep the next coupon for a while and get the Yoshino for 248k coal. Can keep the coupon until news on Somers/Smolensk/Colbert etc. comes in.

 

Georgia can wait until it growns another gimmick for all I care :Smile_trollface:

I also thought that she got a reload buff.

 

This was posted 24th may in the "interesting info around the world" thread: 

Yoshino (T10)

Reload time of main battery decreased to 18.5 from 20.0

An ability to use the fighter consumable was added.

 

Care to clarify?

Have they tho? Because this is the image wargaming just gave us of her:

13fd42c4-9738-11e9-8bbd-38eaa735f4cc_120

 

It says 20 seconds reload time.

Ugh. WG PR department strikes again. Then I don't dare to speak out - ignore my previous comment in case the shop info turns out to be right after all (although I doubt it)

It says 18.5 in wowsft aswell, which i believe is taken directly from the game files: https://wowsft.com/ship?index=PJSC520&modules=11111&upgrades=000000&commander=PCW001&consumables=1111&lang=en

 

I think its time for wargamings pr department to go to gulag.

It cannot be taken from the game files as the servers are not patched yet.

The data from wowsft is from the test server.

I think that doesn't mean much. Gamemodels3D also says 18.5, but I think those numbers get "mined" once from and I'm not sure if or how careful they get updated. And even if it's still at 18.5 in 0.8.4, WG can change anything in 0.8.5.

I havent seen a single video of someone playing this ship that made me think 'Oh boy, that is a really fun and unique ship. GIB PLS.'

Instead all i saw was memeworthy armour, longerange HE spamming that the Zao does way better, 20km torps that are of questionable usability due to friendlies being in the way most of the time....

So, no. Ill pass.

Yoshino is available to cc:s and testers on the live servers, which means that it must be in the game files for everyone, otherwise it would be impossible for us to be in a match together with a yoshino.

 

Thats how games work.

Same, I'll hold my coal and steel. If Smolensk will be coal (although I think more likely steel), I'll get Bourgogne and Smolensk. Otherwise... it'll be a tough steel-decision between those two. :fish_nerv:

One very minor consideration for anyone of a more tuberous persuasion (me, for example): if snowflakes happen again, a T10 premium will get you more steel than a T9 will, assuming I'm remembering what happened last winter correctly.

This ship will not be especially strong but it will be fun. And we know only fun is important here (so many say). 

 

I will take it just for sake of 20 km torps.

I will use my coal to get Yoshino as soon as the patch goes live! The HE alpha is extremely strong, accuracy is good at lonh range for a battlecruiser and ship looks nice. I'm sure I will have a lot of fun in her.

I'm curious if clans will make her work (when clan battles are tier ten again).
