Today I tried playing ATago in T10 MM as a DD, worked out pretty well with 138983 dmg. Can this be a legit playstyle or did I just got lucky?

yes, especially if you're bottom tier. shooting becomes a really tactical decision, and the torpedoes are a great thing to be able to rely on. the key is not getting lit up when you're doing a suicide turn lmbo.

Yes, Atago's  torps are probably the best that all the IJN CAs have to offer (In terms of firing angle), for high Tiers. Plus you can get down to 9.1km of concealment, and your torp range is 10km,  they will never know what hits them. =)

Tip: just drop the torps and run behind covers, then wait for the metal fishes to do their job. and after whichever victim gets flooded and pressed R, remember to send 10 proudly-made IJN 203mm HEs to them for additional damage. this works for me every time.

An interesting thing that ppl tend to press R immediately after flooding, while they might wait for a bit when they are on fire. (yes I know that flooding causes more damage, but still, I will always double check before I use my repair.)

Did you used wide spread torpedo launches? I fine that I always hit something do that.

But you can only hit 1-2 out of 8 at target 8-10 km away

Hey

As with the supposed recent BUFF's coming for the German Hipper/Prinz Eugen.  The Atago too could use a BUFF in her rate of fire to something like 12-13 seconds and maybe a slight gun range increase of about .5-1.0 km.  Personally with her already very good concealment, the ROF Buff makes the most sense, especially when compared to the T8 cruiser we have going now by the RN, French,, now the German buffs.  The Atago could use a slight buff to that ROF, since one glaring downside is her fragile citadel.  Just my opinion.

Hey

Has anyone tried using the Torps more like a pure DD, (start of this thread but) using the Torp acceleration mod and the Torpedo Armament mod?  Use her great concealment, and decent torp angles as a large DD/DD hunter with hydro, maybe even using Survivability expert to help make up for her somewhat fragile nature.  Just wondering; I have my Takao as a pure HE cruiser and was think Atago for a slightly different build/play style, since it gets to use camo for better stealth.   Wondering out loud here.

 

Pete
