Ok so I open the armory and take a look around, since i needed some elite economic flags of the variety I bought the first 60 token bundle and saw the next one is 250, nice...

 

So i have a Visby now...

 

Like WG WTH???

 

I would like REALLY like to know WHAT in this ships stats is actually good?

 

What prompted you to recently nerf her?

 

Because the 65kt torp speed is really not that special now is it?

But 6k damage per fish sure is speshul...

 

And to boot she has 7.5s reload on 5 very mediocre guns...

 

Slow clapping

Well, it’s not russian comrade! Did you really expect non-russian ships to be balans? To the gulag! 

Really you don’t see in this game any good ship that isn’t russian?

I dont think so, I do like 20k per match with Visby, not impressive, if you land more then couple of torps you can count yourself lucky...

 

Ah well maybe Kami and Gremy just spoiled me 2 much...

 

She is a nimble little :etc_swear: though I must say

The higher tiers have faster torps, but the damage stays minimal.

Expect fun with this line, but don't expect do do meaningful damage :Smile_trollface:

Please don't measure T5 DD performance against OP prems.

Russian bias is not a thing, really it is just Western Anti-Russian Forum propaganda.

2x1 @ 5.5s 

2x3 63 knot torps with 14.6k damage, 8 km range and a significantly longer reload.

 

Or Jianwei?

 

5x1 with 8s reload

2x3 torps you can barely stealth fire and that won't hit DDs.

 

Acasta?

 

4x1 with 5s reload

2x4 59 knot torps with 11k damage and no ability to stealth torp unless people are pushing into you. Also an utterly ridiculous 95s reload for T5.

Likewise, and the T6 too; I think that'll do me for the moment though.

 

My instant - based on one quick Coop game each - impression is that they'll be quite fun, having a heal at lower tiers is nice, concealment is average, fast long-range (for the tier) torps are nice but the alpha is painfully anaemic, and the guns are okayish but the turret traverse is a bit low - EM may be called for when you get to 12 points I think.

How much time do you have for the missions (for perma camo). Until end of this patch or the next patch, too?

Taking the powerceept is pointles since I did not say this ship is worst of the pack but she is probably mid or even low part of the table also all the torps you mentioned are like twice as powerfoul if not more, point is you wont hit any more often with these 65kt fish for them to be nerfbatted and the guns are nothing to write home aboit either

 

Well I guess we wait for the st.spreadsheet

My guess is that Wargaming have decided to rather release the new destroyers in a somewhat weaker state, than to risk having them turn out too strong and then call down a proper rage-fest when hitting them with the nerfbat. Better to err on the side of caution, in other words?

Not if its Russian or the Thunderer tho. Then the other way around. Except no nerfs. Rather buffs camoflaged as nerfes.

Well, they did recently publish some projected nerfs of the new Russian cruisers, saying that they are thinking about halving the duration of the stealth radars from 20 to 10 seconds. That is certainly not a buff. On the other hand we shouldn't have any damn stealth radars in the game to begin with, so I'm not gonna throw a party just because they may decide to release something that is slightly less bad for the game than they had originally planned. And as Flamu pointed out in his video the other day, they may be trying to sneak this one in under the fence, thinking that they can just tweak it around later with extended duration later and maybe some extra upgrade possibilities and whatnot.

 

I sincerely try to avoid tinfoil hat thinking, since it's never constructive in any way. I rather try to maintain at least a cautious optimism. So it is a bit annoying when I find myself unable to dismiss these sorts of theories out of hand. Whether I should be annoyed with Wargaming or with myself, is perhaps an open question...? :Smile_sceptic:

The 10s radar wont stick, esp if they dont remove the delay before your team can see the thing you are radaring, CAs can fire one or maybe two salvoes in that time, in the meanwhile Desmo can fire 10 salvoes during her radar...

 

No way that makes it to live server

I played 3 or 4 games with her in randoms (upgraded hull and SE) and I died once I think was top 3 in almost all games...

 

She has a heal an survivability is decent, I have issues with the damge dealing part of her not her HP

I also enjoyed playing her. Västerås on the other hand feels like a downgrade for some reason...

They really were a bit too strong in test, but havent played the "final" version of Visby et al yet. I assume that they will still be agile and pretty tough, with accurate guns and fast reloading torps. I tended to use the torp acceleration perk as you dont really need the extra range.

 

Below was a pretty good game from a late version of Visby, but 100k dmg games werent unusual. Will go and have a look at how it performs now.
