Is Yoshino worth it ? (I kinda liked the Zao)

Have all the other coal ships worth naming

Marceau ? 

(I have Kuznetsov)

Save the coal for after the captain rework ?

Thunderer is probably a better Yoshino is all I can say. Yoshino just kinda sucks.

Have all other coal ships but the Marceau

Thinking along the line of saving the coal if anything good is in the pipeline

Yoshino seems ... divisive. I really like her, and so do many others. 

 

I think if you like the Zao you're safe buying her.

I don't have the Yoshino, so I can't comment.

 

However, I have the Azuma, I like her, and I think some reviews don't do her justice. Yes, her armor is worse than the Yoshino's, and she doesn't get those trollish torps, but she has a much faster-reloading heal and she sees easier matchmaking, so maybe you can find her an acceptable surrogate, if you have the necessary Free XP.


Frankly, I'd save the coal for a special captain or one of the expensive T9 DDs (Z-44 & Neustrashimy).

Agreed on Azuma - she’s a fine ship when played correctly. Now, I don’t own the Z-44 because all of the research I did on this boat pointed to the simple fact that she seems pretty bad, or at the very least, not worth the coal. If you ever played the Z-46 and thought to yourself “man I wish this ship would lose hydro and be bigger, clumsier and easier to hit, just so I can get a bit faster reloading torps” then get the 44, otherwise I’d stay away from it.

What do you guys think about Marceau? It's the only tempting remaining coal option for me and I still need a bit of encouragement:cap_haloween:

 

I think @ForlornSailor likes her.

The IJN supercruisers aren't really good but Sad-44 is straight up trash. Marceau on the other hand is a really good HE spammer, which is basically the playstyle of an IJN cruiser.

With one notable exception: Good luck finding a IJN cruiser that can hit 50 knots.

I think she's hilarious in Coop (and gloriously effective for missions in that mode), but my results in proper modes are more disastrous than a very disastrous thing.

 

My suspicion is that she's quite worthwhile if you're good with the 'glue the fire button down' approach to DD play, but very hard to do well with otherwise.

Yoshino compares in no way to Zao, which is a lot stealthier and more agile.

Save all your ressources, the coupon is good for half a year and this game is about to face the biggest mess ever in a history replete with big messes.

If you aren't particularly stoked for anything at the moment, there's no harm in saving it; besides seeing what damage the rework does, there will probably be one or two interesting new things along at some point (to replace the soon-to-be-removed ships).

 

If it doesn't *have* to be a T10, Neustrashimy (on the basis of only a few games, admittedly) is pretty good, and - as a full premium - an excellent silver earner.

Since the Yoshino isn´t gonna be removed (soon) I think I may well save and see

With the Capt-Skill-rework in mind why would you go for a Cruiser, let alone a Supercruiser!?

Thunderer: HE-Spam for the bow-on-sniperfest and i-overmatch-you-lolpen-AP for every cruiser which is stupid enough to support the DD and doesnt snipe from 20km away...

I have Marceau and like her a lot. I am not good with the ship but when played correctly she has great potential ...

Neustra is in the Featured category (Star up top) and not in ships ... however you cannot use a coupon on her yet, have to wait till 10.1 IIRC.

I'd personally get the Neus over Marceau, and she is available, you just looked at the wrong category - check the top most menu in the armory, called "fetaured". She is quite expensive, though.
