    2. Yuugumo k2

    Pretty strange that she only has 67 fp+87 torp. While that is not low, it certainly isn't what you expect from the most modern IJN DD. The biggest thing going for her is the ability to use medium bulge like other Kagerou/Yuugumo class k2, which is very useful in a 3-5 south/6-3 map where you face a lot of DD/CL type.
    I think it may be because of the gun fit bonuses? Not just the type D vs type C, but also the bonuses on using them?



    EDIT: The new equipment quests is going to take me over a month to complete lol.

    @DLRevan Very true in terms of the more option part, but my biggest issue with Tenryuu is that she does not have a firm direction in her design.

    She gets a huge AA bonus, but gets two special AACI that is worse than generic AACI, meaning her overall AA capability is worse than her kai form.

    Expedition wise, she still costs the same, and she cannot carry a daihaitsu.

    Firepower wise, while the overall nb power increases by a little, not being able to use secondary gun means her actual nb power is less than her kai form as well.

    So, all in all, you can really argue that she is now worse than her kai form in almost every aspect, except maybe ASW and TCI ability if you have luck mod her. I find it hard to call her k2 form an upgrade from her kai form. The thing is, most new k2 has a clear vision in what they are supposed to do. Tatsuda, for example, excels in expedition and ASW, as she can carry daihaitsu and trigger OASW without 100 ASW stat. Tenryuu just doesn't have that. Her characteristics and stat contradict one and other, and I can't really say that is a good design decision.

    @ofi123 Well, on the other hand, NGNM, Shiranui, Kagerou and Kuroshio all have 157-8 nb power. It's just a few point in the grand scheme, but the particularly low stat just seems a bit strange. She is still a good DD all things considered, so it is more of curiosity over a complain.


    The sexiest bridge ever made.

    Somehow I see cats between 1500-1900 JST daily these few days. I wonder if they have some issues after the patch.

    EDIT: zzz my sparkling runs turn into sparkling run now...

    @211303

    Well I just went to compare her with Naganami and with just 2 FP and torp lower, Yuugumo do have 2 evasion and AA plus 9 ASW. So I guess it sorta balance "standard" kai Yuugumo class out?

    @211303 Yes, which Is why I still think she needs a workable gimmick. I'm still disappointed by her end-result.

    2 DDs, 5-5, S rank. Such a joke with non-guaranteed routing.

    Guess it's time to bring out sushi and double support for this.
