Like clockwork at the specific time, she arrives at the shop.

 

I might have been the first to buy her on this server.

Ordered mine from work.  I wanted to get it before I left, but it wasn't in the shop yet :(

Just played my first game in this ship - what a looker!  Amazing that I got anything done in the game as I was so busy just oogling my new ship! Oooh and Ahhhh ......

Very slick, and she just skates on the water - and the torps are 12km!

Very impressive - this will be a popular ship to pick up.

Here's hoping that they do as good a job on the regular Regia Marina line as they did on this ship

Cheers,

Yorcke

Anyone running DE with IFHE? Since I seem to be detected 95% of the time thinking about switching from concealment to IFHE. Every time I start a fire it just gets repaired anyways. :D

I'm probably going to not bother with DE.  The low chance of fire is just not worth it imo, crap + 2% = still crap.  I'm not sure what I will take as a L3 skill though.  I can't imagine not having CE, I found it incredibly helpful on my Molotov, although I also want IFHE badly.

Dude, I would buy this ship just to stare at it with lust.

I think you will be missing out on a really nice ship with good qualities (and don't be so negative . . .)

I've had some great games in her already.

 

Sadly, the Mac client crashes after every game since the new patch, so I can't even capture a screen shot of them.

No, Zoup named it "The Duca" and it sounds well memed. Most people don't know how to pronounce the real name properly anyway.

I just got mine, I'm so excited to play! Gotta get through a day of school before I can though :D

DE seems to be one of the most solid choice, just for the boosted fire chance (especially if you're taking IFHE).

Other than that, SI could be useful for the extra charges (doubtful).

TAE for the extra torpedo reload time (from 71 to 63.9 seconds, so if you have AR as well at 50% HP your reload on the torps would be 56.8 seconds, or just under a minute.

Then there's always SE, which would raise your hitpoints to 31,800.

Vigilance could stack nicely with the fact she's got hydro all the time.

BFT is of very limited value, your secondaries aren't worth buffing, and your AA aura's would increase only to 23.8/55.7/19.7, which still is fairly meager.

BoS... Eh. I suppose that could come in handy?


What I'm curious about is how many other people are considering taking Torpedo acceleration? Your torps go from 12km @ 51 knots to 9.6km @ 56 knots. It also cuts the reaction time for enemy ships from 7.42 seconds to 6.75 seconds, which isn't very long at all if you look at the rudder shot times on most ships...
