Oh ffs this again?

Kitakami would be the most worthless ship in the entire game right now.

 

And they didn't remove it because it was toxic. They removed it because they found a second line torp ship lead to too much teamkilling as should've been expected. In fact it used to be a myth that Kitakami sank more friendly ships than enemies in her existence in WoWs.

Because surely making Asashio obsolete would be in WG's money making interest.

Nerfing the reload on those torps and the range won't. Making them 12km. Why not. 

I just meant Asashio type of torps that hit only BB. So less TKs.

With 9km concealment you're gonna need better range than that.

Also perhaps I need to remind you that you practically explode instantly when anything looks at you the wrong way? Even the IJN torp DDs can outgun you.

Yep. That's why it needs some gimmick. Some? Or maybe.... Italian smoke :fish_cute_2:

If you need a :etc_swear:ton of gimmicks just to make a ship work then the end result can't be good.

Smoke would be enough. And Asashio torps would be fine with less range than Asashio and longer reload. Some ships are having even more gimmicks than that.

Nah the myth is that Kita in it's short live killed more friendlies then any other ship in the game, even if they been in the game since alpha. I'm not even sure it IS a myth, I can remember the games where troll Kita divisions started sailing in the middle of the fleet and we were just looking at the battle timer to know when they were going to teamkill everyone they could. 

 

No automated ban system, no damage reduction for consecutive team damage and no reflected damage ( though the latter feels like it was introduced around the time? My memory is a bit shoddy ).

This! So much this! 

 

Kitakami was pretty worthless against red team back in the day because random mediocre players tried playing it like a DD with 40 torps, but that doesnt work. Then they tried to spam those 40 torps from the 3:rd line (skilled players as they were) only to teamkill a whole bunch of allied DDs, cruisers and BBs in the process.

 

It would even be more useless now with all new lines and ships that has been released, it would only die fast and decimate a lot of friendlys in the process.

 

If the clue eating average potato want to spam torps everywhere, he just needs to wait for Benham getting sold.

Considering all the weird :etc_swear: they're stuffing into the game, and with submarines making their way in as well... I mean, why the hell not?

 

Might as well add the Courageous class Battlecruisers and the Habbakuk while they're at it.

Is the Benham actually going to be sold then?

Stop saying subs are getting into the game. Subs will be tested. People will realize how crap they are and how much they kill immersion, and subs will therefore not make it into pvp.

 

Subs getting into pve, yes. Habbakuk should be a riad boss.. I mean it should appear in a Scenario like subs where it's maybe fun to put it in.

Old Kitakami would not work in current game. Kuma hull with 4 guns, of which only three can be used at the same time, no AA and 5x4 torpedo per side. There is no way to balance this. As a ship it is worthless, as a torpedoboat it is too powerful. If would be either utterly garbage or cancerous. Kitakami was product of old time when game was more simple. Today it wouldn't work. Only way it could be returned it should be during some event like Halloween, never should be added to Random games.

No, we already have morons in the forum post weekly that they take pleasure in torping their own team from the back line so lets not give them this ship, not that it would stand a chance in today's meta anyway.

You certainly regained a lot of optimism in your absence. Look at you thinking WG will consider our opinion on them matters whatsoever.

 

They will be in pvp, there's not a single doubt about that. The fact alone that nobody would pay €40 for a premium sub just to take it out in pve, is reason enough to be sure of that.
