You never had to endure it ingame. It's better this way, believe me.

Lies! I always had a small hope that it would return to my port. The funniest ship I had in cbt. The ship might be gone, but my withdrawals will never go away. :(

Jingles described it as a "one-trick pony", that depended on circumstances being just right for the trick to work at all. And I also heard that it was a magic shell magnet, getting insta-sunk the moment it was spotted.... which kind of figures.

Well Kitakami is a Kuma class cruiser (tier 4), with tier 4 stats, just some of the guns removed to make room for the torp launchers. It kinda figures that Kuma at tier 8 or 10 has trouble surviving once its spotted :)

Is it possible to get back this unique ship? I personally like a cruiser with destroyer gameplay features.

 

It will never come back.

It wasn't a cruiser with destroyer gameplay features, it was a cruiser with features from a B17 bomber, ie : carpet bomb and hoping you hit something.

I really want it doe. A cruiser with 20 torpedo launchers per side? Gimme!

Heck, when specced for stealth it even has a detection range of 8.7km, so plenty of room for stealth torping(unless there's dds or planes spotting you).

I hope it returns :) Especially during these dark days when everyone is whining about how op BB's are. The Kitakami could definitely be a BB punishing vessel.

I never had one, but i remember the Kitti well. It was a quite a thing wasn't it? and by "quite a thing" i mean it was totally mental.

 

Who in their right mind thought this ship was a good idea? It must have been such a frustration to play. maybe its just the nostalgia value, but i do kinda miss it

You could get it down to the 9.3/1 (cant remember) that we get on Takao/Atago now, so stealth torping was possible as long as it was defensively. And come on, a 3 div Kitakami division = 120 torpedoes... I dont care if you are a Kuma at tier VIII, thats just too fun! Also, in those days it was very hard to overpen a citadel, unlike now. So the deletions she was well known for wouldnt happen that often.

You know even after they pulled the ship out from sales, they still have it modelled and in game.

 

Some people datamined some patches where they added different consumables to Kitakami. They gave it Hydro/speed boost+Kutuzov smoke. So basically if its this version we see at some point it may not be that gimmicky anymore.
