Akatsuki isn't supposed to play like a gunboat. I read somewhere on the forums that a hybrid of her guns and torps work best.

Because Hyuuga is cute~

Azuki is my catpanion~

Take that, Nyagato-sempai~!

Log Horizon Akatsuki is best Akatsuki.


WoWs Akatsuki? Wouldn't know; I don't intend to go up that branch.

                           Forget Ise! Give me Hyuuga!!!

Exactly this. No IJN DD aside from Akizuki should be played as a gunboat. In fact, most aren't even worth the effort of trying to enhance their guns. The only two I could think of that would/could benefit from helping their gun capabilities are Akatsuki and Yuugumo. But doing so makes neither of them anything remotely close to a gunboat. So you enhance your guns and torpedoes, then you continue to play it like an IJN DD, which means don't use your guns unless you're absolutely sure you won't take a lot of damage and/or can win the fight. Having the enhanced guns just helps to surprise some players, and to gain a bit more consistency across your games as your guns become a bit more reliable to fall back on for damage.


I myself may be who you heard that from as I've said that in a few threads before. I find Akatsuki excels if you enhance her guns as much as possible, while also putting in points to enhance her torpedo capabilities.


Edit: OP, I watched half the video out of curiosity as I personally love my Akatsuki, and I've come to the conclusion that you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Stop trying to force the ship into a roll it wasn't meant to perform and build around the ships capabilities instead.

Literally speaking, one can only run into Lert if one is not alert.
Ultimate BBQQ Recipe: 1 BB(the bigger, the juicier), 2 or more Cruisers and/or Destroyers, HE spam(apply generously), no salt required. Smoking your BBQQ is optional, but it adds lots of extra flavor.  Melt for 3-10 minutes and enjoy! Serve with fish for an even more exotic taste!

There is only one legitimate IJN gunboat, which is the Tier 8 Akizuki. Period.
