Worst part of the grind was the neccessity to play rogue wave for a month... 

 

I didn't honestly mind if I just went nuts playing them for a while and even got reasonably good at it

Cause nobody will pay 20k steel for “almost a Grozovoi” unlike the Somers.

Plus Benson is just a Farragut with 16 tubes, so really not that interesting.

its an OP DD. look at rank battles this season.

 

My feeling is that it's somewhere in the middle: at T9, the reliance on torps, relatively weak guns, and okay concealment make for a nice change from the usual high tier US gameplay (epitomised by Fletcher). I made quite a lot of use of her in Ranked on my alt account, and she worked pretty well for that (and that was with only around 13-15 points on the captain); I do think she is rather different to an up-tiered Farragut, if only because of the substantial stealth torp window (and the guns are weaker, tier for tier).

 

Equally, I don't feel she's OP: she's heavily reliant on torps (no sh*t, Sherlock!), so a reasonably competent target can dodge a lot of your attacks - makes her a bit of a 'potato masher' I suppose. The guns are quite weak for the tier, so you're largely limited to finishing off maimed targets. The weak AA doesn't do Benham any favours; although that didn't matter for Ranked, it's a limiting factor any time there are CVs in play. She's stealthy 'enough', but gets out-spotted (or close) by a lot of the classic DD hunters.

 

I can imagine better players being a bit sniffy about Benham: she's quite easy to play, but perhaps isn't the best choice for the uber high-skill plays that better players seem capable of (so, not me then!)...

The biggest weakness of BENHAM is the HP pool, the lowest at tier 9= 17.650 HP normal captain with SE. Except Yugumo -18650 HP, all the other DDs have 20.000+ and some even have heal.

u r very accurate in your analysis. I play most torps and IJN DDs so I know what funny AA and week guns means.

excellent analysis!:cap_like:

i think it's too early to see the numbers yet, if the stats require 40+ random battles, i've played mine a lot in ranked so there will probably be quite a few who haven't reached that threshold it just random battles...
