Playing PA.  Longjian was a ton of fun, Phra Ruang was excellent once I realized that other people have different torps than me. Shenyang was great, had a better than 2 to 1 kill rate with it.  Then I moved up to Jianwei and holy crap this thing freakin' blows chunks.  Is there a good strategy to use with it, or should I just grind past it to Fushun?

The Fushun is truly one of the gems in the line. A Gnevny with usable torps is insanely fun. The Fushun is a keeper for all time the John Wayne is not.

Yep, the Jianwei is a bump in the road on the way to the Fushun.  Just grit your teeth and play through it until you can move up to a better ship in the Fushun.

John Wayne, haha!  Grind it is!  Problem is that Mr. Wayne sucks so hard that getting enough xp is proving difficult.  :Smile_child:

Not gonna lie...I played a couple games in it and skipped it for no other reason than I could. Those guns...no, just nope. I skipped the Fushun too, again because I could so everyone can hold their "you should grind it blah blah" comments and I have the Anshan so the slow turret traverse was again a big fat nope. I wanted the Gadja, I love the Gadja. Kept the Shenyang. The ships I skipped are lovingly referred to as "pay walls" by some. It is as with all things in this game, a subjective thing I don't care what anyone says. This is coming from someone who loved the T7 Pensacola and is probably a masochist :cap_haloween:

PA is a heckuva line to pick as your first line, I'll give you props for that...the thought of playing them stock just....ouch

Or just ignore the entire line completely?

PA missions that need doing? Anshan and Lo Yang are good enough for that; thank you very much. (Especially since they came  in Christmas 2016 containers, and I didn’t have to pay for them.)

Try scenarios and co-op.  It'll make the grind a little less painful until you can dump it.

Jianwei is bad, and worse Jianwei is practically no fun at all.

The torpedoes are pretty useless, being barely stealth-launch capable and generally underwhelming at tier. The gunnery is sad. If I wanted cruiser reload I'd play a cruiser...

The boat is left scuttling from smoke cloud to smoke cloud waiting 8s between gun volleys and praying for fires.

Yueyang (T10) and Gadja Mahda (T7) are the two best, imo, I can't even remember the rest.

Okay, this Jianwei is making me want to quit playing this game.   Finally did something with it, got killed again but at least I sunk two BB's.   How much xp did I get?  191!  wt f!  not 1,191.  191 xp.  at this rate it will take me 230 battles to get to Fushun.
