    Don't worry, its still heavily in favor of IJN in carrier fights, although anyone who tries to snipw my lex is not getting their planes back

    Just had a good game with the Tashkent
    [+] Spoiler





    This one went what I ideally hope to achieve in a Russian DD:

    Scouting the lines, grap Caps, harass enemy DDs, be a PITA.

    Grabbed Cap B early in the match and harassed 2 DDs in the area. The CVs were great in spotting. I know I got a bunch of hits on them and it took forever to kill 2 of them. The surviving Mahan on the results sheet? We both fought extensively about 2-3 times. He was smart that he used friendly ships as protection so I couldn't quite get the aim I wanted to finish him off. What I was quite proud of was fighting their DDs within 15km of many of their ships, so shells were landing all around, yet I still did my work. Me, their DDs were operating in the zone between the other ships. Only their Mahan was close to harassing our guys with torps, the rest of the enemy DDs in my area were a non-factor.

    It was a battle where we were winning, then losing badly. I just roamed around north of Caps A and B firing my guns constantly, dodging fire. When the other surface ships of our team were sunk north of A, I was the last one left, and the enemy team could have had a free run at our CVs hiding up in middle, north. So, I just stuck with it roaming side to side, firing at anything. Nobody could make a clean run at our CVs, despite nothing but empty space once past me, something I was proud of.

    A funny thing towards the end (I didn't have time to look at the score, was busy dodging and shooting). I notice on the western edge their Shokaku speeding north, apparently unescorted. So I made a beeline for it, dodged 2 waves of bombers, sank it with guns. I fired torps at 9km but missed. As soon as the Shokaku sank, I finally quickly glanced up and saw our score hit 1k and we won. I had no idea how close we were to winning LOL!

    Also, regarding Russian DDs, I've accepted the fact that Concealment is meaningless. Nothing is spent towards that, even the Concealment Upgrade, so I slot a TADS there instead, as well as SA. Russian DD concealment is the worst of all the DDs in the game, not to mention that in doing your work, you're shooting all the time.

    A very rare 3.8k base exp game for me. Nuked a couple of ships with my 6km torps. Too bad I didn't have 1.2x credits flag on or else this would have been my 2nd game ever to breach 1 million without any other modifiers other than premium and flag.

    How is Lo Yang? I've seen those around a few times but the funny thing is I never got into any extended fight with one. Is she a gunboat? IJN style ninja-torpboat? Or like a USN DD?

    I also finally got into an extended fight with that Polish DD, starts with "B" and I was surprised to see how good its guns were. My opponent was using it like a USN/Russian DD.

    Also just finally resumed work on my IJN Cruiser line. It had been sitting at Tier VI for so long despite having the XPs already for Myoko, so I researched her and got her. I had heard of the talk of her slow turret traverse, saw that it somehow is even slower than Aoba's, which is a feat, IMO. Stock, did a match with her.

    - Mediocre handling so far, looks like it will get better with hull modules.
    - Bad torpedo tube arcs but not as bad as preceding Aoba's.
    - Slow turret traverse; I have to slew the turrets well ahead of where you expect to fight, so I think I can get over the traverse issue. It would suck however if someone got the jump on me in close range. Slow turret traverse, mediocre handling, awful torp tube arcs are a bad combo.
    +/- Nothing special in protection, just have to angle and protect broadsides. She's not Pensacola / Kirov thing at least.
    + Still really like IJN guns. Good damage, shot arcs and flight time, excellent fire chance. Now I now what it's like to be the one holding the flamethrower compared to when I was a USN BB in Myoko's tiers.

    Despite me finding more negative points, I really do like Myoko's guns so far and makes up for a lot of deficiencies.

    Lo Yang is the American Benson (really, it's the same ship), with hydro and better torpedoes.

    Ah, I didn't think they were going to do ships that were transferred / sold to other navies. Hell, that opens up some Fletchers that were transferred to other countries post-WWII to include even Japan. But that's Tier IX so... Yeah LOL

    As for Myoko, have had 6 matches with her, have the improved torps and 1st hull to upgrade into. My averages with her so far makes her my best performing Cruiser. I get a lot of HE / Fire damage with her and that's nice against BBs and DDs.

    Well, it's not like there were lots of capable shipyards in the Pan-Asian Area, so...

    And Anshan is a Gnevy-class destroyer (but not the Gremy) bumped one tier higher.

    Still waiting for the salt when Yukikaze gets premium added to the game as Tan Yang instead of her IJN self.


    I always pull my weight. I just happen to be made of helium.
