Interestingly, however, my teams seem to win more when I'm playing it.

So far every game that I have been in that ship has almost been the first ship sunk or close to it, there has not been a game I have played where it has faired well.

Of course it may have to do with the skill of the player sailing it but I can see why WG is not selling it it just seems to be not working at all.

regards

Like Farragut, like Monaghan so far.

As an aside; Monaghan was lost in Halsey’s Typhoon.

I have gone back to the A hull and the faster torps. The 9 km torps sound nice but they are so slow that most ships have little trouble dodging them, even from at short distance. The 2 gun B hull is pathetically lacking in armament, especially since the ship finds itself acting as a gunboat most of the time.

I think B-hull is pretty great. Slow torpedoes, but also slow ships in that tier. TRB is great!
The 2 front guns are enough to finish DDs, just like IJN. 

Concealment not as superb, but that doesn't really matter. Just gotta have some more patience at the start, but after that you are free to harass the enemy.

Haven't tried A hull yet, also not planning to.

It a torpedo boats , bait people to rush your smoke , throw your torpedo , activate the torpedo booster reload by the time the enemy is soo close they can't do anything and don't attends to see another set of torpedo , that how I play mine

When using Hull A, she's essentially a tech tree Farragut with a quick torp reload. She does pretty much just as well as the tech tree, only can surprise the red team with a quick torp turnaround if they aren't careful.

 

Hull B is more complicated.

She cannot contest a Cap by herself. The two guns just can't do much. The 9.2km torps are great, but as has been said, are slow and if they are spotted the target usually has time to maneuver out of the way.

 

The main issue comes up when she is the only DD on the team, and teammates are screaming for it to get in the Cap becuase 'you're a DD'. So bowing to the pressure, you move in, get spotted, focused, radar, hydro'd, and deleted.

I wouldn't mind getting one in a mission crate. I like driving my Farragut from time to time, and the thought of having a premium one that I could slot various captains into for various effects is fun.

As for the B hull, I wouldn't mind having a go with it. I like that they've done something weird and interesting, but appreciate the fact that we have a fall-back to a known and familiar position if our ideas for using the weird thing don't pan out the way we hoped.

The B Hull plays like 11-12 Harekaze, which is to say that it is not good at contesting caps against DDs that are alert and at full HP. If you can use 11-12 Harekaze well, then you can use Hull B and its 9 km torps.

Otherwise use A hull and get TRB as an option on your Farragut.

This is not a traditional USN DD with B hull, and playing it as such will get you sunk in a hurry.

I bought it for the A-hull.  Lol.   I always wanted a premium farragut, because I dont like dedicating a captain to that ship.    

Next request for WG.... make us a premium nicholas clone plz.  Kthx.

Ok, here's the deal. Say the Monaghan doesn't set your heart aflutter. Buying one now gets you a 10 point commander, a port slot, 3,500 Doubloons; a whole slug of flags for $36.41. Not a bad deal...and who knows maybe someday it will set your heart aflutter.

 

Just saying.

I got my Monaghan from a mission in a Freedom Container that I purchased. (20 containers bought) And now WG has Monaghan for sale in the premium shop. This has convinced me not to buy anymore Containers of any kind from now on.

It's not a high damage ship but its fine. You make you living bullying other DD's out of caps and winning by playing the objective, not landing 60 torp hits a game.

I had an IJN DD try to close with me and gun me down.  I was at half health, he was full.  I guess he assumed I was a B hull and couldnt protect myself in a gunfight.  he lost terribly.
