Plain and simple, the Z-52 is in a very akward state in the game as of right now. With the addition of the Daring, the Z-52 has no unique trait besides fast loading torps. And with the new flooding mechanic, those torps got HEAVILY nerfed. Even though they reload fast, they are close to the worst torps in the game. Concealment is mediocre, guns are mediocre, speed is mediocre, large size...etc. I mean where does this ship really stand out? Hydro? That's very situational and almost useless with all the radar ships. Fast torp reload? its a total of 8 torps that do very little damage? The Z-52 is a tier 9 ship in its current state. What are all your thoughts??? The fact it has the lowest damage of all DD's with the fastest torp reload is proof enough wargaming needs to examine and buff the Z-52
A very seasoned clanmate of mine advised me not to set out to get a Gearing because it wouldn't be worth the time and effort. This person has told me "There are no bad ships, there are only ships you [using the editorial/colloquial you] haven't figured out the strengths and weakness of yet and learned ot exploit.".... This guy is not snide or condescending to fellow clanmates or a user of phrases like "git gud" (obnoxious possibly over people's heads alert) but the opposite.... On the other hand, I have it on fairly good authority from another user idk at all that various tiers do not give rise to various skill levels....this sounds patently ridiculous on the face of it to someone who plays like I do, but "seal-clubbing" aside (red alert on the cliche meter, enough with that people) I see an element of truth in such a view.... ....So why exactly am I a total, even given the limited data sample of how much I've played it, washout with a Shimakaze, post the older nerfing and even with the brand-new buffing of its concealment. ....Your thoughts?
Until Rank 5 I rarely saw Z-52s. Now they seem much more frequent. What's up? I like the Z-52 for Randoms, but 10.5 km torps are tough in the land of perpetual radar. Often only 1 or 2 DDs so the hydro smoke thing doesn't seem as powerful. P.S. I've been running radar Yueyang mostly.
