HI all, I need advice for upgrades and captain skills for shimakaze, also for torps to use. I know, the actually metà its hard for torpedo boat but Shima is one of the tier X I miss in my collection

When I play dds, I usually run Z52, grozvoi or harugumo, so all in gunboat or hybrid.

Thank to anyone who answer me

Torpedoes :-

 

 

1. Type F3 for co-op fights

 

2. Type 93 mod 3 for Random fights

 

3. Type 93 for team play competitive, ( KOTS and such ), subject to your teams Map Captain / Quarter Backs, say so, and his/her team logistics

Pretty good in clan battles, running it with torp  exceleration giving me 16.2km range ( i think)  also reload is close on 105 secs allows you to take a cap and hold it whilst staying out of radar range whilst allowing the rest of the team to contest the one of the other caps.

2.7km torpedo concealment on the 20km torps mate.

The extra 5 knots won't make that sh*t smell like roses.

But in clan battles it is area denial.

Take a Somers. Better for the job over-all.

Or the 12km set. Plenty enough range for area denial.

The legendary is very good btw. It just requires good positioning.

Shimas in clan battles are nearly useless.
I'm trying it with my dudes but the 132km radar (since everyone use soviets) and a little gameplay pretty much broke everything.
Kleber grozovoi... all extremely superior.

If they will not buff the shima torps or the legendary module (that is a pure joke) it's just a dead ship running around.

Shima is best torp boat ingame. However thats the only thing shima is good at. Guns have low dpm, aa was not in devs plans when they released it, speed is good but still she gets outrunned by khaba grozo kleber... So prety much powercreeped for a long time now. But back in the old days she was the best dd around. A lot has changed in the mean time and shima got reduced to spot torp and run away. Cap only when radar ships are dead or pushed back by bbs.  I do find her somewhat viable in this season ranked since i get a 50% games with no radars. Its all smolensk and henrys or minos for some reason so u can dominate caps with wall of torps and get early points that turn into wins mostly. But when u get radars with cv, she is uselles. On the other hand any dd is useless in that situation.
