ST. American destroyer Monaghan, tier VI.

Torpedo Reload Booster consumable is added to the "Defensive AA Fire" slot. It has the following stats:

Torpedo launcher cooldown - 30 seconds, consumable active for 1 second, cooldown - 360 seconds, 2 charges (240 seconds cooldown and 3 charges for premium version).

This change allows the destroyer to be more competitive with her "B" hull, which relies more on torpedo damage.

Looks like she gets some torpedo love. This could be interesting.

Reasons to object -

  1. Torpedo walls at T6. Even if this puts a 30s delay between waves, that's still what the IJN's TRB used to do IIRC and it's still hugely better than the 122s of the Benson-type torp
  2. The core-concept of the B-hull Monaghan was bad. It was a poor design option compared to existing destroyers, it makes zero historic sense for a USN DD to land DP guns in exchange for keeping torpedoes...
  3. The Torpedo Reload Booster was, until the introduction of the wretched, wretched Huanghe solely the preserve of ships which historically had rapid-reloading torpedo facilities and spare torpedoes. It was historic, logical, consistent. Throwing it out like candy just because the Dev team is bad at initial balance these days....

 

Sigh.

Truth be told, I think with the 240 sec cooldown it won't be that impressive. That said, it's pretty weird seeing a feature of  IJN torpboats being used willy nilly to give "flavor" to the ship.

still no word on release date? 

Since this change is just about to enter ST, it won’t be for at least 4 weeks before we see her more than likely since WG just announced they changed to a longer development cycle which is 4 weeks now.

If WoW would just restore the original torp detection rates to all IJN DDs and their torps these types of gimmicks wouldn't be needed at all.

Cancelled until further notice.

Do we know what Monaghan is going to be? It seems unusual (but not unprecedented) for a premium to get multiple hull options.

Another Tier VI DD for the Tier VIII DDs like Lo Yang and Akizuki to devour.
