Ha ha hell yes! I have a teir X!! Lot's of thanks to Furutaka, the xp that she brought home was quite the memes! 

 

Looking forward to playing her, played her a bit on my Corgi account. While she's not the perfect match like Kutuzov was, she will do nicely~

She is like a Kutuzow. But with Stealth, and without smoke, and you don't need IFHE :3

Say, are you able to use a spotter plane to increase her range? Does her firing arc allow you to hit targets behind islands?

 So, how is Zao treating you so far? I find her to be very weak in the current meta.

Oof late but I'll awnser anyway. Zao doesn't have really high arcs. Lobbing shells over islands is not something she does well in even with range upgrade. I tend to run spoter plane as the range mod gives you a decent chunk to work with it as it is. Plus sitting at the back burning ships is useless unless you are in a position to take advantage of the damaged ships. 

 

But between you and me I haven't played her much. The ammount of stupid plays I've seen from snipping BBs to DDs firing trops into islands is too much! :cap_fainting:

But shes does well my first game in her was like 150k on a loss. Rip.

weak?  I seem to do as well with zao as with hindy.   both solid bote but plays bit different.    you can't be as aggressive with zao, but I think it can do fine.

Zao has been power-creeped undoubtedly, but she still holds up. She's my only T10 cruiser, but I don't feel at a disadvantage against any other T10 cruiser because she's high-risk-high-reward much like any IJN CA. Her 9.7km surface detection range is nothing to sneeze at. Her ability to fire at targets of opportunity then fade back into concealment is straight-up unmatched by any other T10 cruiser aside from the RN cruisers, and THEY don't have same caliber or broadside potential. They also don't have HE. Zao still sets a ridiculous number of fires when you make your shots count. Base is 19%, but I have it buffed to 23% with Demolition Expert plus the Victor Lima and India X-Ray flags. I set fires (sometimes multiple) with what feels like almost every salvo, unless RNG gives me the middle finger, which, yes, it DOES sometimes, but not that often.

My major complaint is that her torpedo arcs completely suck. They're not unusable, but it's a close thing. I very rarely use the torpedoes at all during a match unless I'm passing by a channel or defending myself against someone who's dumb enough to rush me from around a corner.
