I love ships with polish banner
Ah man, as a Gunboat DD main, I am so in love with this ship already. I can’t wait for her to be out…
Same here. 1mil fxp already waiting for this boat!
Cheers, being Dutch and living in the province of Friesland, I can’t wait to buy this ship, if WG don’t nerf it into the ground, and return to WoWs.
It’ll a free XP ship. Totally free. But you’ll probably able to buy it too.
Another Dutchman here, and it’d be great if this was our nation’s first* ship in the game. A gunboat DD with good AA sounds perfect for me.
(*I know that Campbeltown and Gadjah Mada were Dutch at some point in their career – but this is the first Dutch-built ship.)
@ StArShIpEnTeRpRiSe Where did it say that it was a free XP ship? I missed that bit.
People went nuts over Grozo´s AA and it had to be nerfed. Since then we got Kidd and now Friesland -_-
I think the issue people had with Grozovoi was that it was a fairly strong ship even without the beastly AA. AA is all this ship has. Kidd is not much better.
Don´t forget Viribus Unitis, she will join PAN-EU line soon (TM).
More Cold War ships.. feels ridiculous to have ships like this and Colbert and up against fletchers and other WW2 greats. They need a separate matches for Cold War tech.
@StArShIpEnTeRpRiSe, didnt think about that. I only have kidd on port, the only fletcher class I own on game
U.S.S. Abbot DD 629, among other Fletcher class DD’s was re-commissioned and modernized for the “Cold War” and served into the 1970’s.
@MasterBait or MasterBaiter Black (Fletcher class too) also has radar.
@StArShIpEnTeRpRiSe, I know black is one of the most broken ass shit in game. I am aware of those but u hardly meet them these days. All i see are useless weeb DDs
Black isn’t that great. I have it and I don’t like playing it. It is a nerfed Fletcher which gets to use radar instead of speed boost or defensive AA. You’re forced to use radar; if you use speed boost or defensive AA, then you are playing a nerfed Fletcher in every way. They should at least put radar on a separate slot.
Bliska and Friesland are not the only Pan-European ships. You completely forget the Pan-European Battleship Viribus Unitis. But you also forget to make a video about it, even when it was T4 and even when it’s T5. Why ignore it? 🙁
That forgotten premium?
It may be worth pointing out that Friesland is a sub hunter by design, not a DD.
In Dutch they were called “onderzeeboot jagers” Jager being the term used for all ships of a destroyer class. Sure the term Destroyer originally comes from torpedo-boat destroyer but by this time that had long since been abandoned. by the start of WWII anything smaller then a cruiser and larger then a frigate referred to as a destroyer regardless of what it was designed to combat. Be it asw, aa or a combination… Besides even though we called them submarine hunters they still had (just like the Holland class before them) a big fat D for destroyer on their hulls D808 till 819
A DD with no torpedo is now possible for WG. When will they add a Philippine Navy ship like BRP Rajah Humabon into the game under the Pan Asia line? It would be nice to see our own national flag flying on a warship in the game even if it is just a low tier ship.
Crappy Angel her guns are too small to any significant damage even at low tier.
Oh my that is soooo satisfying, that AA
How much? 😀
In game currency or outta my wallet?
I heard it’s going for FXP
bloody good AA
somewhat unrelated zoup, but could you ask WG to put the Massachussets on the tech tree for doubloons?
Yes I made it into one of your videos! Keep up the good work zoup!
Should be a great ASW ship when submarines come into the game. Friesland Class Destroyers were classified as “onderzeebootjagers” literally translated: “Submarine Hunters”
WG can’t just remove cv’s, too many players have spent money and time grinding them, not to talk about buying premiums, but… see now if you make life miserable for them, they will stop playing anyway. Enter the Friesland….
Even my Henri IV is now shooting down a lot of T10 planes recently. AA has definitely become a lot more effective now.
Yup just destroy and entire player base oh and more HE spam to make BB player not want to play either. That’s a great way to ensure the longevity of the ??
As you stated at 6:30 ” play does get a tad boring when CV’s aren’t present”. So basically what you are stating is that this ship is here entice DDs back to high tiers at the complete expense of the one class that has been historically the most screwed over in the game, by just screwing it over just that little bit more… Seems like the CV rework was either a big waste of time, or a giant ruse to trick people into handing over shed loads of cash for Premium ships, who’s sole purpose if DFAA. Classic case of creating a ‘percieved’ problem, and then SELLING the solution.
Billy The Dog cv is not screwed over class. Cv are op and need nerf…
@Rob O CV’s are RIP now for sure. I’m getting a lot more plane kills than I ever have in the past now. CV economy is also really bad, so numbers will just go further down.
Just ANOTHER ship CVs have to totally avoid at top tier. If I start seeing a bunch of these, will have to just give up on the class entirely.
If anything, this just shows how brokenly powerful AA is in its current iteration. I expect either AA to be nerfed in the future, or aircraft being buffed, either through speed, health, regeneration, or some combination. My Hindenburg, with zero AA spec, was able to stand up to a Midway, even when I was at 15k health. I went through 2 or 3 heals and he still couldn’t take me out. AA is stupidly powerful right now
Veto! Friesland has torpedoes. ok one torpedo. The torpedo every ship carries around. 😉 😀
can’t comprehend why a DD with that few barrels hast better AA than for instance a Montana
Wait, it can pen a broadside cruiser. Wow, I am more in love
