You decide.  My 1st mission in her w/ supplied 10 pt Cpt.  Can't wait til he's 19 pts.  Muwha haa haaa!!!

On an eco-fiendly note, I like to think that the 3 BB's I put on the sea floor will be enjoyed by future digital divers.

It was just released....
Please, don't join the bandwagon of the benighted.

No one can tell, objectively, if something is overpowered until a large enough sample size is available. Good luck getting a large enough sample size considering it just went live. Heck, good luck getting a large enough sample size until a few months pass at the very least.

Yeah even the weakest of ships can get the highest of scores it’s first battle if the player happened to get very lucky. But if the results continue across most users and over the course of a month or so then a ship can be judged overpowered or not.

Over rated. 

It will work best on CN server for large # of B.B.players

it will work slightly better than average on NA/EU servers because the BB population is not as big

it will NOT work on SEA server, because BB population is too small and you usually have 10DDs per game.

The issue with the Asashio really isn't that it's overpowered. It's that it's a stupid concept for a ship that will promote stupid gameplay.

You're right to a degree.  Me?  I love torps at a distance,  Watching boats at range, modifying solution by trying to anticipate the other Cpt.'s behavior, letting a salvo fly and watching it to completion.  I just got 2 hits on a Conqueror at 18 km without using TRB.  This will be a wonder in the right hands.  2 red DD's took me out, but this thing is great fun.

I think the only thing we can say for sure is that it's divisive. 

I for one just bought it and can't wait to play it. Of course that'll have to be later in the weekend since I'm traveling for my sister's birthday, but hey priorities.

Hahhahahah I will be taking my cv's out everytime I see Ashiao just because I am sick and tired of premiums designed for one purpose only.

If BB players go do their own thing away from the rest of the team, it'll be overpowered. 

If BBs sail with their team and use DDs and cruisers to screen, it'll be overrated.

This ship depends on keeping not only out of sight of everyone, but also depends on their torpedoes not being spotted ahead of time.

This IJN Liberty ship with pew pew guns with only target with DWT

  • CVs
  • BBs

Meanwhile, cruisers and DDs are not affected. This to me is a total disrespect to the

  • principals
  • spirit
  • total game play of the IJN DDs line.

Must games cruisers and DDs can make up 3/4s of your opposition and only leaving 2 BBs or 2 BB and a CV. In those situations this junk DD is useless.  For all you braggers lobbying to get this Overrated ship with out the facts. Cut it out all ready. I will tell you this ship will be worse then the PA-DD line disaster. Cheers!

Its over rated not over powered... WOOOO OP SUNK 3 BB's OMG SO SCARY. Yeh 3 BB's dont equal to 113k HP. Even if it was tier 6 BB's they would have been damaged first.

to finish off tier 10 BB's (from full health and not omg i got 3 kill steals) would be anywhere from 200-300 depending on the ship.

also no this ship is not OP. It can only do major damage to a single class in the game.. and cv's... how often are you going to launch torps at cv's?

Too early to tell. Most players are still getting used to this new ship, so its not strange that the players get high damage games on the first days. Wait for a week and gather more data for a decent sample size. Only then the community can judge whether its broken or not.

 

Regarding your game, good job and congratulations.

At first blush the uneducated might even support your post, but here's the thing... at T9 and T10 many BB's can mitigate quite a bit of torpedo strike damage.  Asashio's torps hand out almost 21K damage but on Tier 10 BB's alot of that is  negated.  I am a way below average player, but I have been scoring above average hits on enemy BB's that are not hiding, but on the move and moving to contact.  If I can do it, anyone can.

SNIP...

 

Considering the player base, does it really matter if it's OP or UP?:cap_hmm:

This is the point...did you win the game? So what you got 2 hits on a conquer from 18k away.  Did you cap, support your other DDs in a fire fight? Did you spot for your team? Did you smoke your radar cruisers? 

Or do you just sail to end line and “torp snipe” from 18k away?

In games with a lot of big, dumb battleships, it's overpowered, because it is a hard counter to them. But it is useless otherwise.

Overall, is balance, comrade.

Winning is a great thing...but it's not the only thing. 

Sometimes you can have fun, even if you lost, if you did your best, and the rest of the team didn't make it work, or the other team kicked your [edited].  Sometimes you can have a winning streak, and it still feels like work, not fun.  And I play game to have fun.  I always play to win, but, it's a contest, and sometimes you don't get there.

Agreeing here with my main man Mavfin.  Winning is fun, but I'm a sub 50% WR player.  I have fun even when the TEAM loses but I did what I set out to do.
