People so scared over Asashio when BBs already sit a mile back if they detect a Wickes is in the area.

Poor CCs. Asashio is good as is. Flamu and others have seriously flawed logic on this matter.

BBs sitting back is a problem, that problem stems from having overpowered accuracy. Also, it stems from the expectation for DDs to cap. Take away caps, or take away that expectation and combine it with a large BB accuracy nerf, and profit. They won't be able to put big damage numbers up nor get kills with any sort of consistency from long ranges. It is actually pretty basic gamer psychology. Path of least resistance also applies.  If BBs were not able to get kills/do big damage accurately from those "back camp" ranges, they simply would....NOT...do it.

Imagine if all DDs had better torps, but had a target restriction like Asashio DWTs..... as in imagine if all DDs torps were changed to only be able to hit BBs and CVs, which would make more sense in the relevance of Rock-Paper-Scissors.

Asashio isn't the end of the world.  It's not even the beginning of the end.

I look forward to sailing in front of my team's BB's and spamming torpedoes in the general direction of the enemy team.  Praise to the new BB master.

I look forward to the new BB hunter. It'll give them something to fear.

People keep saying this will bring fear to BB players. The scared ones wouldn’t even move up to begin with and those that do aren’t scared of DDs in general.

Looking forward to being sunk a few times in my BB's and dusting off some commanders/ships buffed for torp spotting range too, and getting another DD to play with, just wish Cossack would get here sooner!

The Asashio-class and the Ayanami-class are the only IJN special type classes that we are missing. While I dislike the decision to block her from being a Tech Tree ship, I appreciate bringing in more IJN DD classes. Whatever she‘s gonna be like, she‘ll be in my port for sure.

It's a good thing I already started some training into DD play, and even better that WG is adding in some spotting multiplier ribbons; Asashio will be perfect for just rolling around the map and spamming torpedoes all day.

I do expect her to probably end up being a one-time sale before being permanently retired.

I didn't want a premium DD until this panic storm kicked in. Now I really want it. Flanking and punishing those backline hugging BBs sounds so good.

Yelp, Asashio is a stupid ship, put in the game to liberate cash from trolls and raging nitwits who have an irrational anger towards battleship players.

It will be ashame to keep my BBs in port the few weeks after this ship is released. Guess I’ll bring out the Fletcher to wax their tails and show them how to really kill battleships with a DD.

The Asashio is coming and we've of course made no secret of that.  It's been a little controversial to some of you but we'll of course be watching data and your experiences once it's out.  We look forward to seeing how players can utilize it and what it will add to the game.

I’m just going to bully them with Hindenburg/Z52

Since I play most of the time cruisers lately I'm happy about this. A DD that you can chase without a wall of skills. Sounds good.

I predict that people that were terrible with torpedo boats will still be terrible with a torpedo boat and potentially worse as well.

God please let it be this weekend. I need something new to play.
