Help! Any tactics for the Minekaze?

I have my "Ninjakaze" since 1-2 years. And  she was  very comfortable and compatible with my play stile (always). In fact, I think that I even adapted my style of play to her potential.

 

She wasn't OP, but she gave me so much fun that I almost did not want to touch another ship, like Mutsuki or Hatsuharu. I just wanted to skip to Fubuki on her tech tree branch.

 

In the past, as we already know, she was "changed".

 

  Today, after a long time without playing with "Ninjakaze", I realize that she can only a effective attack to ships that chase her. And,  what is Worse, she can't compete on fair terms against Kamikaze, Fujin, etc. She is simply no match against another IJN DD of her own Tier.

 

The reason for those changes, at that moment,  was that "she should adjust to his new role" (?).

 

But what is her new role? What tactics are effective today? Is my playstyle? Is a new gameplay? Any idea?

 

personally, I'm pretty lost (and frustrated) :Smile_sad:

it got nerf'd and kamikaze is no longer for sale.  it was deemed too easy to seal club.     time to move up to another ship.

She is a shadow of her old self, sold her after the IJN switcheroo.

Kami R is still good boat though.

She was nerfed, but the overall playstyle should have remained the same; just play a bit more conservatively now.

Buy a Kamikaze/Fujin or get a Pan-Asian DD and stop going up the IJN line.  What you realized regarding ships needing to chase into your torpedoes stays the same at higher tiers.  Especially if you go F3 with its 8km range.

se puso nervioso y kamikaze ya no está a la venta. se consideró demasiado fácil sellar el club. hora de pasar a otro barco.   

I have almost more than 4000 battles and with Minekaze, 410. It's around 10%. It's not about moving to another ship, Just  because I have Fubuki or Shiratsuyu or Akatsuki.

She was a very fun ship, and I want to try to make it work in some way.

She is a very different ship now. In fact, developers talk about "a new role" but I dont know what that new role is.

Those Ships that dont sell anymore, although yes, I would buy them as "trainers" for my captains. But it is another thing.

Now, my doubt (and frustration) is knowing how to play with Minekaze.

Wait until December starts.  There's usually an opportunity to get some of the rarer ships outside of the ludicrous fleet bundles.

With Minekaze it will often take two salvos (at least 8 torpedoes) to get the job that the single salvo (6) would get done before.  Only way to make the lower damage/faster reload work is to launch 4, wait 20s then launch 2 and pray that they're idiotic enough to run into them.  Or shoot and hope that the anemic guns actually start several fires.

IJN DDs are an exercise in frustration nowadays. Wait for PA DDs, or Try the Clemson, Benson, Fletcher Gearing.
