Unfortuantly she seems pretty bad at anything she does, her torps seem nice when you find out they are slow and also can be detected from a way.

 

shame was gonna spam the poi song, but shes that bad its not worth.

 

get the kidd or something useable.

 

Ironically enough if she was sold 3 years ago she would be perfect.

For premium DDs, Cossack or Le Trollible might serve better. Or Leningrad. Or Sims even.

 

No luck if you're in search for "torpedo oriented" DD though

Le Trollible have arguably the most potent torps of all premium DDs except Asashio, she can be also hilarious to play with her speed and gunpower. Concealment 404 not found tho and Year of the Carrier can prove to be major pain in the arse.

 

Or just doubloon pack, so she can spend it her way, even if it means painting all the ships with permacamos. Or buy discounted ship from Armory *taps head*

Yudachi is fun. Her 15k torps are a bit of a novelty and not as much fun as they sound - what she does have, though, is a torpedo reload booster and smoke screen, so she's more versatile than either the Tech Tree IJN ships. The TRB means you can obliterate capital ships of any Tier if you can get close to them, smoke gives you versatility and a way of getting CVs to go away - and she needs that, as her AA is non-existant.  She's slow for a Tier VII DD,  and her guns - while they hit hard - have a 7s reload and won't win you many knife fights. 

 

I do like her very much, but she's niche, although I don't mind that as I already have almost all the Premium DDs up to Tier VIII. You may find better things out there.  T-61 is a very strong all rounder, Haida is a brilliant gunboat, Leningrad very speedy and fun, Kidd great for annoying CVs; these are all strong choices.

Cossack is a nice all rounder, Harekaze is a nice ship as well since you have ijn 100mm and decent torps + good concealment ( + for her fetish you can mount trb ).

Why isn't she coming back? I didn't think she was overpowered at all ( though anyone not using 100mm hull is playing her wrong :Smile_trollface: ).

 

Then Aigle is fun, but is a bit harder to get decent results with. You got the tier VI USN Monaghan or something like that, it can roleplay torpedo DD ( though I been using it as normal USN DD... works fine that way ). Sims is mostly fun in domination where you can force enemy DD's into cqc easier,  Lenningrad is just a typical VMF DD but with usable torps on tier VII.

She's collab boat. Speaking of one, AL Yukikaze fits the "premium torpedobote" bill, having F3 torps at tier 8 but again, 404 not found:Smile_smile:

Ahh ye, well WG can always renew collab at some point, if they think they will earn enough from sales to make it worth while.

 

Yuki -> haven't seen much from her review wise, wasn't paying attention.

 

Just thinking maybe Shinonome is a decent torp bote for low tiers? I don't like mine, as with all IJN DD's you mostly punish mistakes and if enemy doesn't make them you're suffering to compete with other destroyers.

Imho Cossack (guns, hydro) and Kidd (AA, heal) are the best DDs right now.

Shinonome can be only obtained from Campaign, you can't whale your way through that.

Best when you play for the objective, not so much if you play for angry torpedobeat noises:Smile_smile:

When youre freind like torpedo oriented DD's the best choices are the T 61 and Z 39 german destroysers.

Only with 10 points captains they are a terror on the sea. Use Priority target, Last stand , Torpedo Armament and Concealment. After 10point BFT with Adrenalinrush.

I used both of them all time on the prvisious T6 and T7 ranked sprint tot.

Another reason why i recomend these for you cuz they are the cheapest.

Cossack is a good gunboat and cap contester. AA is fairly naff, though, and the torpedo armament is... ok. Short reload means it's almost always available when needed, but with only one launcher you have a harder time scoring those devastating strikes.

How about the T-61? Arguably the best all-rounder there is among premium destroyers - and her torpedo armament is top-notch, due to the lightning-quick reload. Her having hydro certainly doesn't hurt, either.

(No cat camo, though.:Smile_Default:)

I started reading the topic and automatically thought...why do so many people always have to have others make up their mind for them, is no-one able to think for themselves or make their own decisions? But then I read your whole post and have to take it all back because you sound like you could be a good guy. Just admitting my faults, haha.

Also, Yukikaze kinda has more potent torpedos than the Le Terrible, but isn't available currently. It might return in third stage of collab next year though.

Yudachi is good at some things, such as area (cap) denial. With the torpedo booster, you can get off two slavos of torpedoes, 16 in total. Sometimes I have hits ship I've not even seen. Overall though Cossack is more fun. Yudachi torpedoes are so slow, and visible for 2km I think. On occasion you get a good game, but generally you are out gunned and out run. Its also quite slow. It really has nothing to commend it.

 

I get the impression it was made to turn a quick buck. If WG want to buff it, then give it faster torps, with less visibility of said torps.

 

Wished I had read the reviews before buying it.

Worthless quite frankly. Her only job is to try and divorce some of our more..anime loving fanboys from their hard earned money.

 

Either get a Asashio, or wait for a chance to get the Harekaze or one of the Kami twins again instead.

As @Panocek suggests go for the Cossack... she is fast, turns in 3 seconds, has powerful torpedoes (4 torpedoess only) and strong guns that with HE cause fires pretty easily.... concealment can go down to 5.5km with concealment expert.

 

I would be very surprised if your friend did not enjoy the Cossack but it is no good if your friend is not used to playing DD's.

 

Beware, the Cossack is a fast agile ship and if you're inexperienced you can easily get into trouble quickly with fatal consequences...

Asashio, as @lafeel suggested her, is NOT for the new player...her torpedoes although fast and long range only sink Battleships and Carriers..

You have TRB (Torpedo Reload Booster) but if you have no opponents they are useless.

 

Asashio AA is pitiful, she can also be caught in a chase if you have no boost in play and her guns lack umph.

The only reason I even suggested her is because she's the only remotely worth while IJN premium DD for sale right now.

 

While amusing enough let's be honest the Tachibana is more of a novelty than a captain trainer.

I was in no way insulting your suggestion... apologies.

 

I agree that for coin the IJN line does come up rather short...
