Polish premium DD Blyskwica after OWSF nerf

I've had the Polish DD for a couple of years now, I think I bought a package including the ship during closed beta.  Haven't played it a bunch because with only one ship in the Polish line the captain grind is long and arduous.  

Trying to get back into the ship to get my captain's skills at least to 10 to pick up CE and mitigate the horrible concealment rating of this ship.  How does one play her?  She's not really fast enough to play as a Kiev, and there's only a 500 meter stealth window for torpedo work.  Ideas?

Long range firebreathing gunboat. You have the ballistics to tackle USN DDs at long range and DPS to outright murder anythng Japanese. Just spec for range and fire % and rain down fire while WASD'ing.

Her main thing was the Stealth fire and was advertised as a selling point. It was a tough grind to get the tenth Captains skill point for me. Her guns are nice though.

The CBT pack was the Gremy. Blyska came out a while after launch

Think I'm up to 13-14 points now?

 

In any case; I heard once 'play it like a Russian with better torps.' (Gremyashy?)

It is a gun boat, not as fast as the Russians, but still works to be handled like one.  For me, not great torps, too slow for tier 7 and beyond , so unless great ambush, they miss a lot ( with only three torps per each spread, founds ships could avoid too easily). Have   I run torp acceleration and get a few more hits.  4th level skill is AFT, do not run CE at this point, because running, kitting and firing - you are noticed anyway.

Mine has a tendency to get uptiered quite a lot, and despite being a solid tier VII gunboat coming off well, let alone winning an encounter, versus a Benson, Fletcher, or Tash/Udaloi is probably not going to happen.

I haven't found a way to play with much any aggression that works out all that well, and trying to be a passive torp spammer obviously doesn't work either given their abysmal speed.

 

Had it since Xmas, and most of the time it sits in port for weeks/months at a stretch.

OWSF... those were the days. 

You are right there.....was a beast.  Bought it due to OWSF, now just an OK destroyer - sits in port a lot, do not think I have taken it out in a couples of months. If I want to play tier 7, Leningrad and Sims better ( captain training, exp bonus on Sims, etc).

The Blys still works great in my opinion I have 391 games in it, with a 81.3% winrate. My blys does have a 19 point commander, so all of his xp gets turned into elite xp . I would always recommend this ship to others, its one of my favorites.

Ya, you really need CE on Blys; makes a world of difference.

In a way, before you get the CE, she plays similar to Clemson; good, hard hitting guns of a smaller caliber; decent torps with good damage; fair AA for her tier.

After you get CE, work on maneuverability and reloads of torps and guns, whichever you are best with.

My recommendation would be to use your other 19 pt captains to grind out free exp for her, if possible.

I'd say "play it like a much slower Russian with worse torps" (aka vs Leningrad)

Blys works well with AFT. You can light ships on fire 14.4km away if needed.
