Ever heard the word meta? Its a term for the general path people can follow. Maybe which side of the map is better, which order to get caps in, or in this case, the general favorite class of ships. Currently, there is a BB focused meta. Recently there have been BBs added that tempt people to play them (British HE pen and super heal, French speed, and even back to German secondaries. However, the time for BB to be the meta is over, now they (wg) is introducing ships meant to sway the meta away from BBs, such as a ship designed to kill BBs

 

Its the whole concept of 'cant beat em join em'.

The DD are not invisible they are using they're concealment to stay hidden, it what a DD does, if you truely want to be a better BB player, play a DD to you learn what it takes to kill a BB in one.

What will you say next when your always getting burned to death by cruisers, "nerf he or YOU don't get my money".

You are what the DD players love to see, a straight sailing BB not watching the mini map, never changing course or speed, I hope to see you in game sometime.

these DDs that are invisible

No DDs are invisible, the best detection in the game right now is Tachibana with a detection range of 4.7 K fully equipped.

Try turning. Or speeding up. Or slowing down. Or ... God forbid ... all of the above!

The only thing WG should nerf on Asashio is her stealth. It's annoying to be outspot in my new Shima by this P2W ship.

 

 

 

Other than that Asashio is fine

I wouldn't call the Asashio P2W, and if its only its stealth is what you refer to, then the HSF is also P2W, also the Kagero and Yugimo while not premiums do they fall into this bracket as well.

Your lower statement is the only thing that should be considered by anyone

Too late for WG to remove the poorly thought out ship of cancer now.

I would hardly call it cancer, I wouldn't even call it poorly thought out, this ship fits a niche type of player, much like a CV, you will  have good people playing it and bad people as well.

There is way to much hype over this ship, but at least it was a real ship in real life, and not a paper one, like so many play

It's funny because I've already had the experience of not pushing in a BB because of that ship. I had to put Alabama next  to an island on Twin Brothers today  because that ship was near and I couldn't push. Very annoying. I had to wait until it left. If it had been another T8 DD I would have pushed no problem. I expect other BB drivers are facing the same issues.

Asashio (obvious nickname already in use: first syllable is another word for donkey, second syllable is another word for pit) is doing exactly what everyone said it would.

The guy in question has less then 50 games in the DD class, a wallet warrior with the Tirpitz, smelling like freedom with a hint of nationalism grinding in the American BB line (commended).

I try not to be judgemental I really do, but when you become a conspiracy theorist advocating change with out any "facts". How can one take this request any seriously? DDs have been nurfed to the ground on the IJN DD line and the PA-DD line enough all ready. This guy does know to grind at the BB line since BBs have gotten the improvements for over a year now (congrats in getting the Montana). I can't judge I just say wow..  Cheers!

You complain about his "facts" then bring up your own "alternative facts" with the claim "DDs have been nurfed to the ground on the IJN DD line and the PA-DD line enough all ready."?

So you would of pushed into a T 8 Pan Asian DD if it were there, or a Kagero, but not the Asashio,  does the mindset of BB players change when they see an Ashasio on the red team, I'm guessing with all the hype BB players are genuinely scared

Asashio (obvious nickname already in use: first syllable is another word for donkey, second syllable is another word for pit) is doing exactly what everyone said it would. 

And you described the problem with dds in general: bbs do no fear them anymore. A bb pushing without screen should be easily sunk by its 'counter' which is not exactly the case anymore.

It is similar to what a CV player would say about AA spec'ed Des Moines, "I want to torp and bomb it, but my planes cannot reach it, OP!"

Asashio was not a good idea, but it is what it is -  highly specialized ship to sink BBs.

I, as Asashio owner, would not mind WG to change torpedoes to include cruisers and bring their concealment to PA levels.

Play a DD Gunboat yourself or div up with a friend that has one. When a gunboat catches an Asashio with its undies down, its often toast with butter and jelly on top.

I think the concealment is what gives people the fear but seeing as it has the worst guns as in fire rate, its concealment makes up for this.

I would like to see them change the torps to hit CA but I highly doubt that will happen, as the crying will become more intense, but it would be nice

I suggest go look at the OP stats and conclude for yourself the complaint, while I agree totally with what your saying, I doubt this will ever happen from the OP

I never even think about Pan-Asians, they are so rare. I can't even remember the last time I saw a Hsienyang.  You're right, though. I wouldn't have pushed into a Hsienyang either.

The T9 DDs are excellent torp boats. I don't like pushing into them, but I will. 

Kags don't bother me, I had an Akizuki in front of me and I can dodge Kag torps (Alabama  is pretty nimble). But ridiculous OP torps designed to kill me can't be dodged. If you seem them coming, it is too late. Gimmick garbage like this simply shows that sooner or later WG is going to irreparably harm the game. Even now you know the devs are racking their brains for what new silly gimmick they can introduce.  

If WG wants BBs to push, there are two very simple solutions: (1) reduce (enhance) the offensive (defensive) power of high tier ships, and (2) give BBs longer range secondaries. BBs with good secondaries want to use them, and will work to put ships under them.

You do realise the Akizuki has torps as powerful as the Asashio, it also has 20k plus HP, so in a situation where an NC pushes on my self in an Akizuki they generally get 1 chance to shoot, then they eat 2- 3 torps and die.

It was shown in a graph on another thread the time you have to move and the Asashio torps are mid range in time compared to the Pan Asian, I guess what I'm saying is fair enough, you want to push but where is the ca or dd in front of you scouting.
