I implore you to learn ship name pronunciation please <3
He pulls Notsers, he butchers foreign ship-names, he teaches us much about WOWS. All part of why we love him!
When will people finally learn…
Weebs =/= Japanese People Weebs are simply Japan loving idiots – that don’t take into account the actual Japanese culture – whose base Japan solely on anime manga and games – which are simply just over-exaggerations if not fake idealism’s of actual Japanese culture.
Either way they are just Japanese wanabies – that are straight up the cancer of anime communities – and are completely disrespectful to Japan itself.

If it makes you feel better, he butchers russian and german ship names equally well 🙂
It still requires effort in pronunciation, he has to search it up
Ironically, those ships were meant to be AA Destroyers, but their AA is really sad. I also have a theory. All that gunboat DD focus from WG might mean that they are too scared to make a new Torp focused DD line.
Splashy Thing I honestly don’t have answer for that. And I really don’t want to find out. Russian machine in WG game is like Cthulhu for us, so trying to find a reason for their performance will drive most man mad. Best bet is to ask WG directly. XD
your aa values dont matter if you dont have dfaa to panick the drops
Not really. It is really great AA against Tier 6 – 8 Carriers, it starts to fall off short on 9 and falls flat on 10. If she had access to Def AA, she would have a very powerful AA, but without it, it is mediocre at best.
IJN Akizuki have only standard FCS for 100mm, also 100mm have similar rate of fire to US 127mm instead of in game machine-gun and they didn’t had AP rounds.
arczer25 1 apparently IJN had a special Super Heavy 25kg AP under development for the 100mm – compared to a standard 13kg AP round of typical 100mm. Something similar to Daring’s 114mm with 24.5kg AP almost matching USN 127mm at 25kg and beating IJN 127mm with 23kg.
But I’ve only heard of this once… so I doubt it’s real to begin with. If it were true, then wg would give such shells to Harugumo and Kitakaze, which is clearly not the case.
But at least Daring guns are a good example of super heavy AP – where 114mm guns fire the shell weight of a typical 127mm.
*Harugumo* : Ahahaha. How do you feel getting “balanced” by an IJN boat? *Khabarovsk* : Son of a….. we must report thisu to comrade Stalin immediately. We can not let Russian Bias be humbled. *Stalingrad* : Erm. Comrades, what about me?
I have a feeling that WG got lost in their own game these days.. They giving us battleships, but they say they are cruisers. Now they give us cruisers, but they say its destroyers.. And btw the fact the RN cruisers don’t have HE was supposedly because that amount of HE spam combined with smoke would not be good for the game.. Good thing its a destroyer, so it doesn’t have enough pen to eat everything alive, right? Oh wait..
Republique with too much over steer. Captain Jeremy Clarkson.
another spam he schip fun tier X woohoo
They are only 100mm guns…
100mm or no, HE starts fires and with this things reload…
It works out at only 1-2% fire chance at best. So on average 50-100 hits to start a fire.
I know they fire fast but even my best games in Akizuki I have only managed about 300 hits total.
100mm were never known for their HE fire starting potential – Daring on the other hand outright is!
Plus I think it will just cause PTSD to high tier BBs at best.
I am not a DD main – never have been – but I like this ship – I will be happy when she is on my port!
Hey that was me dying at the end there in the Gearing.. haha.. Had a decent 130K going until Notser came and ruined it all.. 😉
My condolences. But you played well, regardless.
Enhancing AR made me laugh
That Gearing though. Torpedo Beats Engaged.
finally we can have a badass IJN
Isn’t Yamato, Hakuryu and Zao are badass IJN?
They’re great but not god tier…
??? Yamato – Lolpen Hakuryu – practically unrivalled Zao – Super Heavy Rail Gun Velocity Flat Arc Shells – aka highest penetration of all 203mm guns in the entire game. – better torpedo boat than Shimakaze with 12km torpedoes.
Harugumo – HE that penetrate battleship armour with IFHE. 12km Torps – can fire 12 with TRB – 3 away from Shima – our so called torpedo boat.
Shimakaze – RIP – 20km torps spotted from the moon – no AA – weakest artillery – carries only an extra 3 12km torp payload – since Harugumo god forbid has TRB.
lol pen only work the ship and head on, if the ship angling that will limit the damage to 10k max and a lot of time you just deal 4 – 7k damage,Also Bow tank meta is death… Since buff midway actually perform better in random, but is hard to rate which is better because both cv now can pretty much delete all none AA def ship. also the user, team player skill can really affect how well the ship performs. high velocity just help make it easy to land-shell, it not hard to land salvo on BB and cruiser in other cruisers anyway. my point is other cruisers capable of doing what zao can apart from hit DD at 10 – 13 KM away effectively. Also you only get to use that high AP penetration only if enemy give you broadside… btw Mosva(long range), DM and Hinden AP properly more scary.
Also didn’t Zao basically have Shima torp for 12km?
Gensui: Yamamoto Even if Battleships angle, that can still expose the bow/aft. Yamato can gladly overmatch that for 15-20k on first salvoes if unsaturated – yes 7-10k afterwards – but they certainly can’t do the same to you I’d perfectly bow on – unless it’s another Yamato Class.
Either way – whether you frontal citadel them or not – consistent bow penetrations hurt.
Midway and Hakuryu were balanced. That was until wg thought it was op – thus nerfed the plane reserves. Eitherway CV rework is coming next year to solve that.
As for Zao it actually has 100mm more penetration on average than Hindenburg – and 50mm more than DM. Sadly DM is considered scarier thanks to those USN Heavy Cruiser autobounce angles. Plus Hindenburg is quite superior in both brawling very – while being excellent also at long range engagements. Don’t forget Zao and her glorious 19% firechance – to incinerate BBs at range.
Yes Zao received shima 12km torps. Which is amazing. Since it allowed Zao to stealth torp – making it very easy for her to engage Des Moines and Hindens outside radar ranges undetected.
I mean sub 10km detection – a payload of 20torps 12km torps – makes her to even be a highly competitive torpedoboat than shima if you ask me – given the right kiting position.
Hmmm really interesting ship! Still tier 6 though but this looks very promising
Why? There never was a Japanese gunboat made. Why does WG feel like they have to balance the game? It’s much more fun to play a role on a team and try to get really good at that role. WoWS its turning into a game where EVERYTHING IS BUFFED until everyone has everything…and then everyone stops playing. Stop it WG.
Too long size it’s not a dd but a mini cruiser? but anyway GooD DD and if i want to play he spamming game i love to play with Harugumo ( have smoke torps ) than Worcester (no smoke and it IS like Mino radar and no torps)
At 11:35 suddenly you saw everything pink for a moment
So this is more powerful then Daring in every single aspect….why even make the RN DDs?
BillyT um no, they are quite different from each other. What they have in common is the focus on their gun systems and slow speed and then it stops there.
Aeon well i think the playstyle will be much alike, mini CL…and in that aspect this ship will be better.
A tier 10 miniature Minotaur with HE spam and speed… Not OP at all.
Not op, balancing factors include:
nessecity of highly skilled commander no armor belt (as on Khaba) no heal awful manuverabiliyt low HP for a “cruiser” playstyle can’t contest points due to weak survivability vulnerable to carriers
Agreed but with TRB – it can fire 12x 12km torps – only 3 less than Shimakaze – our so called torpedoboat.
Now the 100mm 1/4th HE pen with IFHE – managing to penetrate 32mm battleship armour is something else – if not cancerous.
They could have just given it the same HE pen as the 127mm – since the only problem of the 100mm was failing to pen superstructure armour and gearing 21mm – without IFHE. But clearly – they over did it which is equally bad for balance.
So one line gives you a gun boat build and the other torpedo build?
this line is cancer
