Well, with her inclusion into WoWs, the final IJN DD class of WWII has finally made it into the game.

 

And still, the IJN DDs are still all as built DDs. One of only two lines, the USN CVs, and IJN DDs.

That will change when the gaps in the Akizuki line are filled, whenever that is. Super Akizuki I believe?

With whatever they do yes, then the original line will still be historical, the other line will have design ships after.

Shigure lost her single turret for more AA during the war is one example of a hull WG could use for a prem.

Most special type IJN DDs had that modification done.

Asashio-class is closer in design to Kagero and Shiratsuyu.
Yugumo-class has a different bridge design.

But yes, Asashio at T8 is boring and is basically another Kagero clone in playstyle.

 

I will take Nenohi as originally designed.

Well, with Asashio now set as a Premium, that leaves T9 to be Super Akizuki and T10 to be some sort of 127mm-carrying Hyper Akizuki.

Now if only they'd release Haida already. Surprising how easy it is for other countries to allow obtaining blueprints for ships. But when it comes to Canada, you have to pay a ridiculous license fee.

I nominate a variation of Two Brothers which has a shallow section in the centre of the Channel of Death, over which only a destroyer can pass. Bigger ships get stranded on the sandbar at the far end, and cannot retreat or turn around, thus turning the channel into an absolute one-way death trap. Desirable release date: 1 April 2018.

Novel option; no smoke generator, but separate Hydro, Speed Boost, and Torpedo Reload Booster consumables. Buff the guns to match Shiratsuyu's in RoF.

 

Even if everything else remains the same, at least she'd be different enough from a Kagero and slightly superior to a TBR-oriented Shiratsuyu.

That's very inefficient of them, you don't have to copy before you print.

Wait, you mean you don't have filing cabinets full of copied text printed out before editing!? :cap_fainting:

Then USN CVs will become the only line in which every ship was built. :Smile_Default:

It is reasonably likely that RN DDs will be joining the USN CVs and primary IJN DD line as using only built ships.

This looks like functionally just a worse version of Kagero. 2s slower reload, 3.9s slower 180° turret turn, 1.9s slower rudder shift and seemingly even worse AA based on the only visible AA guns being a pair of 25mm twins. Slightly better concealment but only if the devblog stat isn't including the permacamo (which IIRC it usually does), in which case that's identical to Kagero. The only advantage is longer gun range, but that's of limited use since the guns are horrible and you'll want them silent to stay concealed whenever possible.

So what's the point of this ship as a premium?

With the balancing factor of RNG rolls to capsize in cyclones or when turning hard? :Smile_smile:

Pretty much my impression.

The only possible positive is that maybe A turret will get 360' traverse as there's no AA gun bandstand in front of the bridge to block it (per Kag/Yug), and it looks like there's a big gap. Even if it does it wont make a shred of difference though.
