I'm a cruiser main and only own 2 IJN ships period, Shino and Mushy. I really dislike and suck at BBs but maybe average in DDs... and I actually like the Shino, I would love it, except....

I spawn close to the C cap with our CV being the only ship close. The CV shockingly send fighters straight to the C cap detecting the Kag. However instead of keeping the Kag spotted he makes a hard right and off go the fighters to B... Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Luckily the Kag blunders into a torp I fired to keep him on his toes while I vacated the area. After that it was just trying to stop the bleeding but the team refused treatment. I seriously didn't take a single point of damage till I was the last one left alive and then only because the Red CV made sure I was hunted down.

 

 I know, I know, Git Gud and Carry Harder... I think in this case I would have needed a USS Kidd DD993 at a minimum.

Bad weekend for Shino games, tons of CVs mid tier and 10 DDs every match.

 

The ship's not that good, the 6.1 camo kills it, and the bad maneuverability buries it deep.

I will admit now I DONT play carriers. And I will say IMHO that the most important thing a carrier can do(besides sinking ships) is to launch a fighter first and send it to the cap where the DD is, spot the enemy DD and shadow him. And it's shocking how many won't do this. It's hilarious to watch 3 squadrons beeline to the map edge as they start their journey of 3 minutes around the edge of the map. My 2 cents,,,,,,,,,

I don't play carriers either, but when my teams CV hunts down DDs, it seems we always win.  And when the enemy team hunts our DDs down it seems we always lose.

CV play has too much decisive power.

A inferior CV on my team = 70% chance of losing

There is nothing you can do to save that situation. PERIOD

The Shino would definitely benefit from either quicker turret traverse or 10km torps.  Both would make it rock! :cap_rambo:

...and that WG decided to make the hull sit practically on top of the water for some reason.

She No Know Me is garbage.  I'd sell mine if it weren't a boat that couldn't be reacquired.  It's my least-liked boat so far.  Absolutely hate it.

shino takes patience.  it isn't  kamikaze and it isn't a gunship . it is decent all around bote that can spam torps though.   its downside is lack of speed and  torp launch window.      positioning is everything with shino and it can perform well.      not a good reactive bote at all but strong hybrid.

Watching King of the Sea: Supremecy League the other day, it was all Gearings with Defensive Fire.
