7.5s main gun reload on a DD isn't my idea of fun, it's why I prefer the lower calibre guns on the Gaede and Z-23.

 

This one just looks like a tiny tweak on the Z-23 which is an OK, but not especially inspiring DD. Much as I want a KM premium DD this one doesn't interest me much. The T61 (if it's ever released) is much more inspiring.

This sums it up quite nicely. Would be nice to get the option to switch to the lower caliber guns.

 

EDIT: WG did really increase their premium ship output...

NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

 

Please dont make them have scrapped the T61 and give us this instead.

 

I kind of pride myself of having played just about every DD in game Prem and non Prem. These almost carbon Copies they are bringing out probably wont make in to my port. Unless its a reward ship

I honestly don't know what it is supposed to have going for itself. 4 guns, bad reload, relatively short ranged torps on a dd that is sufficiently fast, but clumsy with rather bad concealment. 

 

Meh is probably the perfect reaction.

Well, the T61 is way overdue and it may be quite possible that they canned it, which would make me rage quite a bit.

I'm waiting more than patiently for the T61 and WG could at least give some infos why it is delayed (or cancelled), although my guess is that the french ships take priority with the soon-to-be released french BBs.

 

Still, it pi$$es me off that we don't get at least a statment what happened to the premium DD that was announced twice in the monthly mission briefings.

 

While the Z-39 will eventually end up in my port, it mostly will not be welcomed with arms wide open - if it stays with the 150mm guns.

Didn't like it on the Z-23, will not like it with the premium either.

 

So, any infos about the T61, @Kandly , @MrConway, @Sub_Octavian, @Tuccy? When will we be able to throw money at you for the T61?

T-61 too OP compared to Gaede for shop so they only hand it out for KoTS to curb complaints about P2W?

She douse look very good if maybe not OP (when compared to other nations tier 6 DDs) Its not released so maybe they are making balance changes would be nice to know this. I think most of us would understand

It has been months by now and we still haven't heard anything about changes so I doubt they have had it very high on the priorities list. Or they just hope that she will be somewhat forgotten by the time she is released so people would get less outraged at how much she outclasses Gaede and makes T6 IJN DDs obsolete.

65 knot torps every 90 sec (which can get much better with adrenaline rush/torp reload skill) is a thing.

KM DDs are the IJN ones of '18 for me, pure torpedoe boats but with hydro and competent guns to use as a last defence weapon vs enemy DDs that get too close.

Z52 was my favorite t10 for quite some time.

Not interested, not with the noobcannons. 4x150mm guns with a slow reload on a T8 DD is a recipe for disaster. They barely work on the Gaede and I won't be using them on the Z23.

Having a ship with  only 4 guns that shoot slowly compared with ships like the Kidd or Harekaze is suicide. German DDs are sold as DD hunters but you can't hunt anyone when the opposition outshoots you.

I would try them if i was you.. Z23 One of my highest performing tier 8 DDs and i run mostly with the 150mm.... Can citadel CA/CLs like crazy only 2.7 secs slower rate of fire and a whopping 12% fire chance.. If you cant citidel it burn it

So a Z-23 that trades a gun for slightly better concealment, eh?

 

No deal. I very much liked the Z-23 with the 150mm setup, it packed a mean wallop and had that distinctive edge to how it felt playing that ship, but just that one gun less could very well tip the balance and not in its favour. Getting slightly better concealment doesn't feel like a good trade-off or even something I'd want on a ship like this. The 150mm Z-23 was a surpreme ambush DD that worked through its alpha punch, not because it was stealthy.

 

Though there's no telling if WG won't try to offset that by giving it an overcharged hydro like with the Lo Yang, though again I don't think the Z-23 was as fun to play because it had hydro ...

 

Highly sceptical of this premium.

Aye, i'm with ya on that. My Z-23 got 14 citadels once. And 5 150mm guns getting all shells on target has the highest chance of getting those fires started

For me it's hilarious that we still know nothing about T-61 that was meant to be released before the end of last year and they're already anouncing the next premium German DD. :cap_haloween::cap_like:

Agreed. I'd be fine even if they say they've changed the ship so it's not that OP. But yes, it would be nice if they say say something about it instead of pretending nothing ever happened and hope we forget about it or something.
