omg brace for poi spam...:popcorn:

That being said Inazuma can be sold as a pre-nerfed Fubuki, a premium tier 8 gun-torp hybrid dd...I'm sure ppl would by her just like they bought the kamikaze...

Poi!

 

 

In all seriousness though, I don't want to see more premium clones until they sort out their nerfing premiums policy. As much as I would love an Ayanami or Yukikaze making ships that are frozen in time isn't good for the game - just look at Kamikaze.

Already some degree of Poi spam with the introduction of Shiratsuyu. And yes Inazuma can be implemented as a pre-nerf Fubuki. Verniy could be introduced as a T6 in her USSR configuration.

I think Hibiki's history is more interesting and it even has a Russian flavor to it to appease our WG overlords!  She was given to the Russians as a war trophy and sailed as Veriny for quite some time before they sank her as a training target.

 

A Yuudachi premium would need to have a KC Colab in it just to annoy the people who froth at the mouth over anime in this game.

Inazuma is specifically an Akatsuki-class though, and since the game has Akatsuki and Fubuki separate, with Akatsuki at tier 7, then Inazuma really wouldn't be a "pre-nerf" Fubuki.

 

I would personally prefer an Ayanami-class to complete the trio of special-type destroyer classes.

No thanks. We already have 3 tier 5 premiums (Fujin, Kamikaze, and Kamikaze R), a tier 6 we have Shinomome, and tier 2  has Tachibana.

 

What we could really use is that new IJN Mutsu premium and a premium IJN Carrier.

An Akizuki sister with the option of swapping one of the consumables for Defensive Fire could be interesting. :playing:

Inazuma along with one of her sister ships saved several hundred allied sailors after sinking their ship, in addition to having a distinguished combat record.

Group 2 is probably the sexiest of the Special Types.  I would gladly a welcome one.

What about Hibiki, oh wait she got captured by the Soviets so she there would be a massive outcry about Russian bias.

I want Hibiki with 130mm guns but 610mm torpedoes.

 

That would be Khorosho :)

The policy of not nerfing premiums came because WG murdered a premium tank that was sold OP. 

Then people like myself got upset and a little bit vocal, something something public outcry, and then we all hold gold refunds. 

 

That there is the story behind the premium policy.  Poi.

The way Wargaming sometimes pick ships as premiums is astounding.  

 

Koenig Albert --- the one German battleship that missed Jutland.

 

Shinonome --- One of the IJN DDs that sank early in the war, and so only has a mediocre record.

 

So I am not counting on Wargaming to make good choices when it comes to premiums.  Especially with Mutsu, which erased herself without any help from the Americans, is going to be the next IJN premium apparently.

Pre-nerf Fubuki represented both classes though.

 

I would personally prefer an Ayanami-class to complete the trio of special-type destroyer classes.

 

For precisely that reason the Honorable Service reward ship should've been Ayanami.

Before I accept Inazuma as a premie, I'd rather accept Hibiki.

I'd rather see Shigure or Yukikaze before these two.  Inazume has some claim to fame, but what did Yuudachi do that made her distinct from what other IJN DDs accomplished during their careers?

Terror of the Solomons?  Her captain ordered the crew to sew together hammocks to create a sail and keep on fighting.  The US forces thought she was flying a flag of surrender (white flag) and didn't fire on her.  They were royally confused when she began firing on them!  She survived long enough to have her crew evacuated and then the ship was sunk.  She participated in the sinking of two destroyers on a Tokyo Express run and torpedoed USS Portland in the First Battle of Guadalcanal.

 

Also... she is the origin of the word "Poi" as abused by many in game.  This is lifted directly from the anime "KanColle" in which Yuudachi's character says "poi" (which is about the same as adding -ish to the end of something, its showing uncertainty) because her full combat history from the Solomons wasn't entirely known which is why she says Poi all the time.  She is a main character in the anime and in the browser game the anime is based off of she's one of the more powerful destroyers you can get.

They would make decent premium DDs. They both fought at Guadalcanal.

 

 

Much of the Shiratsuyu class fought in Java Sea and Guadacanal, and earned notable if not illustrious combat records, not just Shigure and Yudachi.  These also include Murasame, Samidare, Kawakaze and Suzukaze, the latter two were part of Raizo Tanaka's force in the Battle of Tassafaronga.
