Tier 2 Premium US Destroyer the Smith, what’s good about her? Well, not much except her deadly combo attack! 😀
Hiope you get better soon Chase. I got funny experiment for you! Let caption guy to comment a video and you become caption guy :D
No ,don’t buy,
For a T2, I think it’s okay.
Dude i was cringing the whole time. It was painful to hear you talk. Seriously, try to get some rest and feel better before recording.
A bit like the Tacky Banana?
Get well and don’t push you self to hard!
With the fastest firing guns at tier 2, they do just fine against enemy dds even though they are small, its a funny ship to throw my gearing or clemson captain on.
torp range only 4 km?
Don’t make videos with voice comments, unless you find someone talking for you. 😉 I got the Smith with the last big even the Great Naval Battles. As I couldn’t get the ships I wanted I ended up with the Smith. 😀 It really is a fun ship and I had good success even against cruisers at long range as they just couldn’t hit me, or just occasionly. I made constant hits, but running away isn’t an option at all. Even with the boost you just can keep the range. I just fired 2 torps, one of them sunk the BB after I got killed. Buying as a collector a must, as someone just want to have fun its a secret tip, for normal players I would say leave it in the store.
Herr chase get better soon Ze Kriegsmarine need you to review their glorious ships in the near future
get well soon iChase 🙂 ty for the vid you really didnt need to if you were unwell, focus on yourself for now :)
Get well soon mate o7
Good review and you raise some very nice points about the Smith. Do hope you get feeling better soon!
Gonna be a odd question but where is the infection? I had a staff infection in the neck twice
So what is the next know your ship about
Hope you get better NOW Chase! Love your vids! :D
get well soon iChase, looking forward for more of your vids, take care :)
iChaseGaming do you plan on doing reviews on the german battleships when they finally become availiable also what is your favorite ship in game that you like to play often when not making a video? also get better soon Chase
Get well soon m8!
Hey chase! I know you love your US DDs, and im just starting, so a few tips are always welcomed. 🙂 Im on the clemson rn, so you know. 😀 Hope you get better soon. :D
You sound really tired. Hope you feel better soon!
Have you ever considered bringing back monday rules?
Great vid Chase. Feel better soon! ?
Chase, have you seen the new tier restrictions with match making? If so; thoughts?
Hope you get well soon.
Its a devastating in-fighter, the trick is to combine the guns with Torpedo strikes spreading out the hits to optimize the chance of serious flooding. And hammer away. And its cheap at $6.99 including a Port Slot. And you can speed boost.
Get well soon m8
Hope you get better soon!
Take your meds and get some rest. Heal up then come back with a vengeance.
I want do old Chase back. Give him back, that cursed illness or what ever you told in the video xD
iChase! Even when ur sick you continue to make video’s for us! Top dog bro o7
come on chase, just go rest b4 doing any more videos…….you definitely needs rest. hope you well soon.
Love your videos Chase, but seriously man, if you’re sick then you’re sick. We will understand if there is no video for a couple days; get better buddy.
Get well soon
Chase I hope you’re feeling better 🙂 Recoverying is the big thing, we can wait for you to get back into it :)
ichase sick go lay down
Get well Chase. No need to bust yourself making videos. We’ll all be here when you get better.
Because of not playing low tier I totally missed the introduction of all the great looking lowtier maps. When I was doing Tier two there were like only 2 maps, Salomon Island and Big Race
If it’s painful for you to talk, then you shouldn’t be doing this. Get better first and THEN do YouTube.
Awch, nasty stuff mate. Hope you get better. Now as for my next comment, I’m not taking into account your skill as a player, in taking two average joes vs each other. And I would say the mikasa should beat the smith. With its speed and size with crap accuracy in its main guns, it seems to be a destroyer magnet. Which is fine! Because it secondaries make it a destroyer killer easily. I’ve watched too many destroyers think they can get an easy kill with it and then get sunk one after the other, if the mikasa captain knows the wasd hack. But then if you do out your skill into account I suppose you would win over an average joe in a mikasa.
Good God man, what are you doing?? Get some rest, this fodder can wait a day or three. We YT potatoes can wait for our guru of the gaming high seas to get better feeling/cured. Be gone with ye, off to horizontal unconsciousness. Doctor and fans orders. You silly sailor you. ;)
I agree with your POV as far as attacks. I can see this ship as a seal clubber. If combine with either a Umikaze or Tachibana in a Division, the DD effect would be deadly. The Smith would cover the Japanese division mates during attacks. I have found that the single torpedoes are driving players crazy looking for the other torps.
You are correct on the Smith’s weakness, but as a harasser this ship stands out. It is a cheap ship to purchase and to use for advancing USA DD commanders skills. I don’t expect to be a Minekaze, however it does promote teamwork if the ship is used properly. This is not a YOLO ship.
BTW, I do enjoy your videos as a training aide. I am sorry to hear of your illness and do wish you get well soon. Victory!
I hope you feel better soon man, but how did you got that think? is it just a random desease?
Get better soon chase <3
Get some rest buddy…get well soon
You’re wrong about this one Chase, Smith is great only as a torpedo spammer from cover, with 11 seconds reload an wide TT arcs you can lock-down a corner or choke-point just by camping in smoke and firing torps over and over. Her guns are sub-par and she’s too slow to use standard US DD tactics. Also I fail to see the point of training a new captain, it’s a premium ship, you can use a trained captain from any other US ship you have. A tier II ship is not an efficient trainer or credits maker, you play it just for fun, so why not use your best DD captain to boost her performance as much as possible?
Get better soon Chase!
Also, get well soon! :)
10 sec torp reload? “Hey Joe! Pick up another torpedo and hurl it overboard!”
thanks for the review
I purchased her for another 200% xp/Captain training. I found she works best if you follow your CA/BBs. So when the enemy engages (Detected!) he only sees them and doesn’t know I (DD) am hiding among them.
Those guns look great for Tier II… i just don’t know if i should use narrow or wide spread
Most premiums are quirky in some way, the Atlanta being one of the better examples. Some ships are “expert player” ships, such as the Tachibana and Yubari.
I think the Smith is a perfectly capable tier II DD and the torpedo reload rate more than makes up for the low damage. I only took mine out twice now, but both times I was able to be effective.
I was in a New Orleans and saw a Smith in division with an Iowa. was an interesting game. he actually finished top on the team with base XP, having sunk an Izumo and burned down an Amagi. glad that he was on my team :P
You didn’t mention the Torps can fire in almost 360 degrees.
Smith is a rabid weasel that scratches ship’s faces and then runs away when shot at.
I bought the Smith with gems when that was a thing in a special event, and I’m having fun in it. But I guess I’m not sorry for not spending actual cash on it. ;)
Feel better and thanks for taking the time to make the video.
oh wow that arc is bad, ichase try using AP under 3km when the arc flattens out enough for you to hit their belt armor excluding bbs and angled st louis
Instead of handing out the anniversary ship they decided to list it for $6.99. What a joke of a 1 year anniversary.
I play my USN DDs like that 😀 So am I doing it right ?
chase would be nice if you showed the ship a little as well
Hope you get better soon Chase o7
Why isn’t this ship free…
Get better soon
“With the Smith I actually managed to single handedly gun down and torpedo down a Mikasa…”
And then iChase proceeded and stole candy from a baby!
Get well soon, Chase!
It was $7 bucks…………………easy on the wallet. Why not?
Thanks for toughing it out for the review, Chase. Hope you’re well soon.
So basically Smith is more or less a USN version of the Tachibana, which I already got for free. I would say they probably should have had a similar event with this ship but they just gave us the Mikasa for free so I’m not complaining. Wouldn’t mind having it though I’m going to pass all the same. Got enough Tier 2s for the occasion low tier wackiness.
oh yea, this thing, i was going to get it in the grand naval battles thingie with diamonds, i got the tachibana and some flags n shit, few days later the tachibana is in the tech tree and i wasted all my diamonds on a ship that i could have gotten for a few pieces of gold, thanks wargaming
A deadly combo is an Atlanta and a Flint together….although my Kamikaze Rs 7km torps were able to kill them xD
Sorry to hear that you’re ill, Chase. Get well soon. 🙁
Also…er…yeah. Someone at Wargaming thought a tier 2 premium DD that, as far as I know, is completely uninteresting, is a good idea. And it’s a US DD at that, a ship class that is already quite complete. They put resources into this rather than countless other ships that would attract more sales. Urgh.
If they want to give us a joke ship, give us Surcouf or something. Something vaguely interesting. Or the Yorktown and Enterprise. -_-
Hey chase, what are the premium ships that you think are worth buying?
How to do not play Smith. Dont run into island. :)
Feel better thanks for the review
Thanks for the review even though you feel like shit!
Get well soon chase, also will you be doing a lo yang review?
Get well soon Chase! Drink hot tea with organic honey please!
Hope you get better quickly Chase!!!
somebody has to bring this to a T10 match
What’s the best premium to buy for epic/fail/funny moments? I think about buying Tirpitz for it, because maybe I can get some good brawling gameplay. But Atago is a better Myoko, so I will love it. And Atlanta can be a lot of fun as well, after you know how to play it. So what do you think?
Sad that you’re ill, hope you get well soon. FYI the ship (USS SMITH) was available for free as a part of the Grand Navel Battle Event in EU.
Sorry for you dude. Know how it feels to be super sick like that an it’s never fun. Hope you get better quickly.
chase play some outdoor spots! =)
