commodore_torakula posted a topic in General Game Discussion....What's your take on the RN DDs that have been available through missions for a while now? So far the scuttlebutt I hear is that the Acasta's not gotten a good rep, but that the Lightning has. I've been asking around, and so far haven't elicited much more comment than that. I didn't unlock one of the missions, so I've got no take myself yet, but I will soon when I get them. My feel for the low-tier ones, although I've only played a few matches, is that they're quite good, but I'm not including them in the poll because they just dropped today. Thanks for your input!
Just reporting that torpedoes on the Icarus won't always launch. Sometimes I launch one salvo, but not the other. Or i launch them individually, but not all of them, nor will the reload "F" key work. On one occasion, switching between armaments helped. Was able to reload them.
I currently have a British Dasha mounted on the temporary premium Lightning. She is specialized for the Black Swan, but I want to keep her on the Jervis. Since the Jervis will soon not be premium, is there any way to get the captain retraining done while it is still premium (so I don't have to deal with skills not working during retraining). I can't figure out how to start the retraining process on a premium. How do I do this?
I have been gone from WOWS for quite a while and decided to check back due to the Royal Navy Update. Opened some boxes and got the Acasta, Icarus, and Jervis, along with enough sovereigns for a Gallant. My favorite ship from the bunch is the Jervis. I only had one game in it, but it wasn't bad at all considering my mediocre performance in destroyers. I like the combination of good turret angles on the 3rd turret, hydro, and very fast firing guns that can allow you to deal with any destroyer threats. The main weakpoints with the Jervis I notice is mostly in the lack of AA power which really applies for most of the British DDs. The torpedo angles are improved from earlier ships but still aren't that great. It has a healthy amount of 10 torpedoes that can fire to both sides which is pretty good and the single fire feature is pretty nice, but it only has 7 km of range. I tried the Gallant twice in Ops and once in Random. The main thing really was it's lack of firepower and slow turret traverse. It was an OK destroyer, just not the best. I tried the Acasta and Icarus only once and failed terribly in both of them due to uptiers. They both seem fairly similar to Gallant, only that they can't really stealth fire too well with torpedoes compared to Gallant. Overall, the British DDs are quite... fascinating
