This is the reason I'm undecided about it coming back. If the Kitakami were sold, there would be a Kitapocalypse even greater than the Great Tirpocalypse. Imagine. A twelve cruiser game, six per team, and ten of those are Kitakamis. 400 torpedoes. Plus destroyer torpedoes. That would be gamebreaking.

 

That would put challenge in the game :P

I don't think it would be quite like that. It's really not a very good ship.

 

10km torps and it only have 25000 hp or so- and it isn't like it has especially amazing concealment- which should be only just under 10km with CE (based upon Kuma and Iwaki A). We now have things like radar and german hydro, and players are (believe it or not) much better at the game on average. It's the last ship I'd want on my team not because I'm worried about teamkilling, but because it's a deadweight ship with no HP, no armor, bad concealment and gimmick firepower that will get it primaried instantly.

 

Nevermind getting uptiered- there are countless lower tier cruisers that will wipe the floor with a Kitikami.

Well it still IJN torpedo with [edited]concealment. With the amount of personnal aircraft, Aircraft carrier, Hydro and Vigilence it will be an easy way to farm spot point. But might be fun though

it would not matter if the brought back the kitakami back or not since they nerfed the torp range and speeds to the degree that they have.. at one time the torp wall was impressive and fun but between noob players and all these players who lack situational awareness the captain of the kita would be labeled a TKer.  The game has become too CQC with torps instead of the long range they used to have..

you mean Kitakami players who lack situational awareness and shoot torps that they shouldn't.

 

A tk is always the shooter's fault.

Well, you could always do to Kitakami what they did to Okhotnik, give it some short range say 6km range torps, put it at tier 6, make it a destroyer with 7k concealment and poor guns but massive torps. I think it would be okay.

actually, it would be cool if it showed up AS a Halloween Event.

just like last Halloween when we had the spooky ships,

make up a "Medusa" skin for Kitakami,

deck covered with snakes,

each one shooting out a torp when fired.

give it single shot RN type torps,

and let it just ooze smoke that spreads out over the water.


 

Just a thought.
