Just finally got the Okhotnik after a couple of days waltzing with customer service. Does this thing remind anyone else of the E25 in wot ? Hi speed, hi concealment, crazy rate of fire, and 12 yes TWELVE short range torpedos. It's ambush nirvana much like a certain TD in WOT.....Futher it also never really existed like the e25 and if it had been built would have probably have never lived up to the design spec.

 

I never bought the e25 when I had the chance I felt it would be unfair.......course after having to fight the Damm things for years my standards seem to have dropped a bit. So when you see 12 torpedos coming at you make sure to wave I'm probably only about 4.5 km away ?

No.... E25 in WOT was OP because of the TD aspect.

Okhotnik has a crazy rate of fire? 10s reload is not crazy rate of fire.

Pulled up behind tigers....scraping their bumpers with e-25 and reduced them to rubble cause they couldn't drop their gun far enough to shoot me....used to div up with 2 other 25s........funny stuff.

Not a crazy rate of fire, not to mention (IIRC) the traverse on the guns is rather slow.

The War Canoe is really only overpowered when the enemy allows it to be. It has all the drawbacks of being a DD combined with a turn radius the size of a state and that state isn't Rhode Island. If anything it is the TOG of WoWS, huge fun in a ridiculous package.

Ok is not high speed nor high concealment, compared to other DD's. You gotta work skills and flags to get there, and even then, no. Plus, horrid RoF, and horrid traverse.

 

Just, no.

 

Love mine, however. :Smile_trollface:

Completely different. 

 

Okhotnik is for CQC ambush and rushing enemies. 

 

If you rush people in your E-25, you are either on a city map, or very bad.

Idk, was the E-25 loads of fun, but not really competitive?

 

And not exactly cost effective either, as it needed the gold ammo when uptiered. Or even, most of the time.

E25 could carry like you wouldn't believe. Hide and snipe the rush at the end and use it's high rof to dps down the last few. I saw a lot of e25s turn a three on one or even a four on one Into a win. I wonder if the 7 guns (That's a lot of shells) and 12 tubes along with 30+ knot speed and dd concealment and smoke mean this little beast will carry like crazy too. As far as the long and easy to hit arguments well the 25 depended on angling and auto bounce and I've already seen shells deflecting when I charge with her.

10 sec gun reload is not that high but the ambushing with the torps is great, i got an easy doublestrike.

Yeah, but that is mitigated by the 360 degree rotation...

Especially when you actually get a T4/5 battle.  Poor little slow BBs

Wasn't a big deal, because of the SMM.

Only carried a few APCR, to always make a good profit.

Concealment+Speed made it incredibly easy to get soft side shots on most maps.

(On citymaps you could only support of course.)

E25 was good because she could hide in a bush and snipe you all day long, by spamming low damage shells.  A quick look at the warships wiki shows that you get detected before you can fire torps.  This is not exactly E25 type gameplay, since the E25 is better at stealth.

It's not much like any tank at all, but if it was it's probably more like a TOG given the comedy theme of the thing and its wildly varying value depending on the particular situation it finds itself in.  In any event, as long a you're having fun who cares what it's called or what it's like!

T4/5? My greatest moment (recently) in Okhotnik was in a T7 battle on Trident.

 

Fighting around that big island in the east, trying to position for some ambush work, when a Leander has to come and be a bother. I wasn't alone, so short work was made of it, so I figured my cover was blown. Nagato keeps coming towards the island, and I eventually pop out, his gunfire from the front turrets missed, and twelve torps sent a full health battleship to the bottom from less than 3k...

 

...either the driver wasn't paying attention and really had no idea I was there, or they were too brave for their own good.

 

Me? I would have gone far, FAR away from that rock if I'd been the Nagato.

Umm, OP, correct me if I am wrong but the E 25 never existed in RL either.
