So I noticed her leg is covering he text more than I noticed, so I'll post here what it says for clarification purposes.

-Hidden stat BB players mostly reverse bowtank in ranked
-Playerbase complain about it
-Weebs with no T8 silver ships buy Asashio just for ranked
-They bring Asashio to ranked
-Current meta only has ~30% BBs
-Becomes food for Cruisers and other DDs
-WG wants to make profit from stupidity

All of those kills were made while contesting caps in ranked, and none of them were battleships. I'm 4 for 6 in ranked right now with this trashbote. :)

In my opinion it was designed for ranked. It is a submarine it can sneak in to the back and sink those bow tanked BBs at will if the other team lets it back there. Which from my experience happens a lot with normal DDs.

Have to be honest, I wasn't expecting much when I saw my first Asashio in ranked.  I've only played a few games, but the two that have been on my team have been top notch.  

Atago plus a spotting Asashio is a Savage cap taking team.

I didn't say that at all, I was just talking about my surprise at the few Asashios I have encountered and how well they have been played.  I fully expected them to be useless for ranked.

Well, all I can say is I hope everyone that's fine with them in Ranked will get every one that I'm suppose to get.

*puts the Asashio Ju-Ju on those forum members* :cap_win:

I love the way people post things that are generally true -- Asashio sucks for Ranked -- and then there's always a dude who puts in his 100K game as if that refutes anything said in the initial post. Almost any other DD with viable guns and torps is more useful than Asashio.

Brother, I'm right there with you.

This forum is pretty bad for that overall.

If they sucked as badly as everyone says, I wouldn't be at 66.67% with it in ranked. 

It's not nearly as bad in ranked as everyone thinks.

The people who just stink up the joint with it would have done the same thing in whatever other DD they took out.

Last ranked was an Alabama Bismarck/Tirpitz fest I knew when I saw Asashio what they were trying to stop that from happening again. As no carriers showed up at first causing everyone to respec then when some of us carrier players figured it out a lot of us ranked up quick. I got Kraken in a Lexington last ranked. Notice Asashio is almost a better carrier hunter than a Battleship sniper.

No doubt you're right. But you've played 6 battles and won 4, which is one over 50%, or well within random variation. Your damage numbers are excellent!
