    Little White Mouse

    No, its not. It really is one of the worst cruisers in the game, if not the worst...you are seeing the "huanghe effect"...

    Mikasa Secondary Gunners....we need to talk

    I once did 31k with them wayyy back when mikasa only faced tiers 1 & 2. Fun times back then...
  3. I play Huanghe, so DS is "works as designed".....
  4. Not really, it doesnt put enough shells on target to make it worth giving up fire chance. Best to go for fires in this ship...

    Over 8000 battles...

    My last solo warrior was against 7 ships too. They split and went down both flanks and steamrolled my team. I just drifted down the middle waiting to get nuked in my Huanghe, but never got spotted. Realized I was close to their base & gunned it to the far side. CV sent planes but I smoked up but I was gonna be 7 seconds short of capping while smoked. The cv dive bombed me right at the end but missed. Lots of sweating in that endgame...

    Over 8000 battles...

    ...I have seen it all, having faced vicious close quarter combat, getting ambushed by a wild destroyer out of nowhere, pointing my bow towards the last group of reds facing a desperate battle against impossible odds...but the one thing that always gets my heart racing & my hands shaking every time is slipping into the enemy base in a lost battle, having no idea where the last of the reds are, finger on the smoke key...and waiting...waiting...waiting...

    Huange He...a Slightly Lesser Perth

    The torpedoes are awful & no one in their right mind would give up hydro just to fire off a handful more of those things a little faster...

    Tempted by the Huang He sale

    Few people have played it more than I have, so I speak from experience when I say it is the worst cruiser in the game. I disagree with Gin_Blossoms in that the longer the match goes the better. Huanghe depends on teammates to do the heavy lifting of causing damage & spotting & the fewer ships left the weaker Huanghe gets because it cant do its own spotting while smoked, & enemy DD's will nullify its concealment edge when contesting caps. It has no role that it is good at, other than shooting down planes, & lack of dfaa limits its effectiveness in this role as well. Trying to kill a tier 8 ship with this thing is one of the most frustrating experiences you can find in this game, its damn near impossible with its pitiful weapons & lack of heal....

    Premium Ship Review: Huanghe

    For what its worth, here is probably the most thorough data set you will find on Huanghe vs Perth. I specialize in weakling ships & am pretty good in them, so this is not noob play...

    IFHE on Perth?

    I dont run IFHE on my Perth, & my numbers are among the best in the world. I load up on fire flags & play forward spotter till the end game, where the Perth is an absolute monster...

    Does anyone really need to spec for AA?

    I drive a Huanghe...there is nothing else you can do with it except shoot planes....

    Yubari-yay or nay

    but it does get protected matchmaking, like ishizushi, so it has that going for it. Other than that it is difficult to do damage with it. I would like to see the AP shells buffed so it can get cits at long range. So many sideways potatoes down there in tier V, would like to take advantage of it....
