I've loved murdering them in Akizuki.

and in Kiev.

I always speed boost towards where deep water toprs came from. Even better when I put RDF cause they are generally solo flankers.

I imagine when the word goes round in the BB herd Asashio the Assassin will be more properly anticipated and will be hunted down with as much fear and loathing accorded the Shima.

For now however, the Asashio is the ninja in the game for the wallowing tubs to worry about. Asashio ninja:

--you must never be seen

--you must intuit BB movements at long range. If you do, by the time they see your 70 knot torps coming in... imagine the horror. Schadenfreude is what it is.

All BBs and CVs in the pre-battle screen will either breath a sigh of relief or butt-clench over this little monster. She is also an excellent spotter with a spotted range of 5.4 kms (!), and a fine cap-grabber just when the reds thought they had nailed that one and moved on.

First battle in this little beast. Time will tell how this assassin does but its a game changer. My first battle in the little monster:

It's hilarious when they either don't know or forget that the Mo has radar, 16 inch shells are a great wake up call .

Question for all you Asashio players, do you go for caps early in a match (like normal IJN DDs), or come back and pick up caps after everyone leaves.

I'm sorry, but the one they provided simply wasn't sufficient for this situation.

It's pretty underwhelming tbh. It's a gimped Shima at T8; think about it. BBabies are usually terrified sitting in the back row anyway so you have to try to get the through everything else on their team to get to them just like with any other DDs but with far less flexibility. I thought it was funny a few times. It's not $60 worth of fun though.

Either? Both? It's all very situational.


And back on topic for this thread! I love this little thing so far...

Only the last of those three battles had any battleship kills in it.

My overall stats so far...

If she fulfills the potential of motivating players to actually use teamwork with some regularity then I’ll adore the ship. As it stands, she’s a lot like my A-hull Harekaze, but with an overpowered/worthless torpedo gimmick.
