    Commander Skills Update

    why does assign commander not work? I hover over a commander & it instructs to press left mouse button to assign... and it don't I can assign a commander that way right after I send to reserve, but thats the only one

    Harugamo is the stupidest thing ever

    Not advisable to stare down a ﹰHaru in smoke bow-on. I set the WoW record for Haru in ranked w/ 256k damage ...burned down 3 BBs who refused to bail. The haru line was nerfed a tad since then, but if a target does not actively interupt the dakaDakaDaka, it will melt the target
  3. Radar can be so unbalanced that I leave the ranked battle que if 2 or 3 cruisers are present. If figure only 2 cruisers = 50% the 1st two in line both have radar or both dont. That means 50% they are unbalanced...... leaving a 25% chance I have a 75% chance of my team losing. Then I remember the MM hates me & buff that 18.75% chance to 31% chance of cant-do-anything-about-it losing</sarc

    So What Are The Strategies To Counter Harugumo and Kitikaze?

    Lol Much like the 75% angle the shells drop @17km....I,l once pummeled a Yammy over the top of a sheer cliff he was nosed into

    They have the operational characteristics of a CL, like a mini mino. Their weakness is dodging torps; Harugumo's turn radius of 830m = Conqueror turn radius, so it evades torps like a sawed-off BB. What most ijn captains dont realize yet is that just like a BB, level 3 Vigilance skill really helps in this reguard.

    True, didnt think of factoring the TYPE of damage..... plus side of fire damage is it keeps target afloat slightly longer to farm slightly more damage ;)

    +10-20% in torp detection Better gun accuracy +1% fire chance -5% detectability I'd gladly trade 2 of those for -5% rpm or slower turret traverse speed

    Which is why I sail w/ Target Acquisition System in upgrade slot #5, or Vigilance skill..... these ijn gunboats turn like a BB so one of those torp detection buffs are needed. This build is with TAS; I find the increased fire % gets more damage than IFHE

    Depends on how good you are lofting shots past 12.5km where shell velocity drops off. It can be a harder skill to master, but considerably increases target opportunities. I love it because its much harder for a BB to hit you back from distance. Without IFHE the pen is 25mm = 20% more shatters, but fire chance stays @ 5% insteainstead of dropping to 4%, so 20% more fires. I observe more damage using DE instead of IFHE, esp when I target ship sections not on fire

    Good job MM LOL.

    Yeah..... Harugumo, Kitakaze, Akizuki & kHab are more CL than DD. Much like Scharnhorst, Stalingrad & Alaska are BC, not BB nor CA. MM is so unbalanced on this I wont put my Haru in Ranked battle unless it is 3rd DD...would not be fair to teammates

    Harugumo/ Kitakaze observations

    May I suggest Vigilance skill or TAS slot#5 upgrade. I have tried each alone & the 20-25% increase in torp respose time gives my Harugumo 85% of the nimbleness it needs.

    Torp avoidance & IJN GunBoats

    I have tried using just Vigilance or just TAS and torp reaction time seems manageable. With Vigilance skill/ Conceal mod: ...CE = low conceal (5.9 kita/ 6.2 haru). ...4 skill pts from CE reinvested= 6.9 Kita With TAS/ CE skill: ...3 skill pts from Vig reinvested

    Torp avoidance & IJN GunBoats

    Another vig/TAS enabled dodge- I was out spotted by a shima by prob 1km, I chased, it launches 3 salvos, & my Haru is EASILY able to dodge the type 93 torps reaction time of 12.75 secs (base 8.8sec) I spot him again, chew 1/4th of its hp off before he hides in smoke..... repeat 3 times. Most of my chasing was in the dark, but was able to keep bogey away from cap.

    Sans IFHE the ijn 100mm pens 25mm. My understanding is the only DD armour thicker is kHab belt @ 50mm

    So far: 50 ocean soul 1k doubloons 1k doubloons More sC to open.... I plan on using doubloons towards perm camo for my Harugumo.....damn that T10 is a regular credit looser in Ranked.
