Still want HSF Harekaze.  I have avoided this season of Ranked, but think I could do pretty well with Akizuki

Best Rank Ship... IJN Gunboat DD

Fixed the title for you. Most are going to assume you're referring to the IJN torpedo line when you're talking about a 3x10cm/65-armed gunship.

I take it you haven't had to fight Loyang with better hydro than German or Akizuki both with guns that would delete you quickly. You won't be able to do crapagainst competent radar either.

Yep, massacred all DD's who came before me. 99% of people don't know how to play DD.

Good ship, I switched over to smoke after my first game with bad CV player. Only seen CV like 1 other time. But smoke helps you hold caps longer.

Sometimes they never shoot back,  even though they have the better guns, and I just kind of wonder, while I dodge torps and whittle away. Nice by the way.

Most don't even know that when they are broadside AP eats them. Or that when you go into a cap... Turn in away that you are ready to run if trouble starts. Good chunk of DD's also waste time trying to aim torps in a gun fight.

Just wait when you get to the higher ranks with that. That's when the fun will begin.

Good Luck to you this season.

Always kill the DD's off first then, the scared players will help. Usually how it always goes.

I did something similar in Kidd.  Kidd's heal helps it a lot in ranked and the CV has a hard time getting successful strikes off on you thanks to good AA and DF.  The extra gun helps against the LoYang spam.  That said, you rely on smoke heavily to do damage to anything else.  And yes, killing DDs first means smoke camping is more useful.

Akizuki is way better than Harekaze for carrying. Monarch or Amagi are ideal if your team has better DDs, it seems to me like the reason you lose in most ranked games are your BBs not knowing wth to do while DDs do a lot of work just surviving.

Akizuki's down side is the fact it can be seen 5 miles away.

That's not true, you can reveal other DDs at the same time as your concealment breaks. When the other DD is spotted they cannot escape you even with your low speed before they are murdered by your DPM.

I'd say it's the turning circle and rudder shift.

Both great ships though, I think they are close enough that the ship your are better with is the deciding factor.

Akizuki is 7.6KM base and HSF Harekaze 6.8KM... Pretty massive gap.

Benson's is 7.3.

Lo Yang's is 7.3.

Hsienyang's is 7.3.

 

Kagero and Harekaze are the only ones who enjoy the wider 0.8km spotting gap.

 

And yet if any of them are moving towards Akizuki when they spot Akizuki, they will be revealed by Akizuki before they can turn and start running away. Harekaze will not win that gunfight. Kagero definitely won't.

I still think Akizuki is a better choice for ranked. First because she's a gunboat but also because she has great stealth and gunpower.

 

With a concealment build, you have 5.9km surface detection, which beats Z-23, Ognevoi and Kiev. You can spot and be spotted at the same time by a Benson / Kidd and probably Lo Yang . Only Kagerou and Harekaze beats you in term of concealment. But if you already know that a Kagerou/Harekaze is spotting, you can just rush them and force them to bail out, they are not big treat.
