    Gallant Nerf

    Okay you want me to shoot my own post in the foot? I'm not saying either ship is bad it's just that Gallant offers nothing over Icarus - FYI that is with the same captain

    Look at the stats - and Yes I have all 5, Gallant is a tier 5.5 ship. Yes it is good and I like it but there are things they can do to make it a tier 6.

    Okay - that I can agree with

    I'm not saying I don't like it, I have had it the same (since release) I'm just saying they are rendering it OBS with the Tech Tree ships

    Gallant Nerf

    So today I realized with the release of the RN DD's Gallant will be effectively nerfed to a point in which it's just a Special Tier 5 ship - to explain Gallant has a firing range of 10.2, okay Acosta is 10.1 at tier 5 and Icarus is 11.6 at tier 6 - so why does Gallant have shorter gun range? Gallant has 12k HP, Icarus has 12.1k and Acosta is 9.5k so I'll give you that one Gallant has standard acceleration not the RN CL version Gallant doesn't have Hydro So what does Gallant have? it has 8k torps (but not the same as Lightning and lower damage than Icarus) More normal smoke but still bad Speed boost So what would put Gallant back in a Premium Ship? Option of Speed Boost or Hydro (Same as the Icarus) Same Gun Range as Icarus RN CL acceleration With that you would only be slightly better them Icarus. 1k better torps, option of Hydro or Speed Boost and teh Smoke it a bit better but nothing to write home about

    I'll agree with that - Yea that and just like Ranked the clubbers will advance so quickly that they will group up in the higher ranks and allow the less experienced players group up behind. I want to have fun with it so I will probably use a variety of ships and see what I can do with ships I'm not comfortable with. With the exception of one division in which I was requested to play Kami I will most likely leave all Premium ships out.

    Correct but at that tier I could most likely go with a 0 point captain and do just fine (Have done it in Randoms on accident) The statement is more to encourage others to do the same but I know only a few actually will.

    That is the first mention of Nicholas I have seen - I will be playing Nicholas over my Kami and all other tech tree DD's though Mutsuki or Minekaze might be fun. Being this is supposed to be for newer players I see no reason to go all full out ham just to seal club and ruin the experience for those players. I think I will even limit my captains to 10 points or less.

    Switching from USN to IJN dd gameplay

    I will totally agree with you there YY, Lightning and Gearing are fun but Shima is still my favorite still

    Will the 4 DDs become part of the research tree?

    I'm at Lightning and almost enough to buy Jutland - My question is will the captain Auto Train to the ship or will I have to train him? I'm running a spare Emerald captain on it currently.

    Completed the Jervis mission today

    Congrats Jervis is a fun ship - I ended up with all 4 from the missions and I love Jervis and Lightning!! I think these ships might be my go to DD's and I have every DD line in the game and almost all of the Premiums.

    Japanese DDs dunk by 20mm Fire?

    That actually happened and damaged ships, I believe. I read somewhere once, as a result the Japanese dumped the Long Lance torps overboard during air raids to prevent them from detonating on the desk and damaging the ship.
