Will you keep Akizuki?

With the upcoming changes and introductions, many of us will face a choice- will we keep Akizuki? Let's face it, Kitikaze is a straight up upgrade, and will be much more fun to play not only because of the Akizuki nerfs but also because of the better torps, speed, and access to 6th slot. Harugumo is a different beast alltogether. Personally I will sell Aki to have enough credits to get Kitikaze/Harugumo but may buy her back for ranked or something (I held a 74% winrate exclusively with her last season). What will you do?

When I get through Akatsuki, figure a year or so, I will keep Akizuki. I'm a ship hoard...um collector after all.

Of course I will keep Akizuki.  I paid for the permanent camo for it so why wouldn't I.  Plus I actually enjoy playing tier 8 ships more than I do higher tiers.  So yes it will be a keeper.

Akizuki gets the odd Tier VI top tier battle though. She is so strong its hilarious in those situations. Besides, just because there is a new kid in the block doesn't mean the old one should go away.

No, I will sell it, the up coming nerfs to it, does not make it viable to keep anymore, and the newer Kitikaze will be its direct replacement with better everything, they are making it tough for people to grind through it now once the changes are implemented.

Only reason I'll get rid of her, is under the following circumstances:

What will you do?

You’re kidding; right?

Why would I want to sell the only higher tier ship I actually think is fun?

I might still complete the line, but playing those tiers is a chore; like having to mow your yard in the current summer heat and humidity; it isn’t anywhere remotely like ‘fun.’

Hilarious is also catching a poor Ranger off by itself and farming it for 17 citadels.

Agreed. My ship the last two Ranked.

People focus too much on min-maxing in games, and not enough on ‘fun,’ I think.

Colorado is almost universally hated; and yet my wr in it is around 60%. Fun in Colorado comes because people often underestimate and ignore it until they start getting hammered by those 16-inchers.

Yes.  I sold a lot of favorite tier tree ships in my mad dash to unlock (and pay for) Worcester. Now that I've gotten a taste of TIer X fighting,  I'm going back and getting my favorites again.  Ducky, thankfully, avoided the scrapper's torch.

Why would you sell off Akizuki?  She's a solid Tier VIII DD.  The Tier IX-X ones will be facing almost exclusively Tier IX-X themselves with the occasional VIII.  Akizuki at VIII still gets that chance to beat up on Tier VI-VII DDs and let me tell you, watching 'Zuki work those lower tier DDs is like watching a massacre.

 

Meanwhile the IX-X DDs of this line will see nothing but the likes of Z-52, Yueyang, Fletcher, Khab, Gearing, Des Memes, Worcester, Yamato, Montana, etc.

All.

The.

Time.

The fiercest, most dangerous ships in the game are all they'll see.

 

Meanwhile Akizuki has opportunities to beat up on Farragut, Hatsuharu, Mahan, etc.  She'll get the opportunity to farm damage off slow, easy to hit, easy to penetrate Tier VI-VII BBs.  Their superstructures in lower tiers are so thin that 'Zuki doesn't even need IFHE to pen them.  Sure, as a Tier VIII, she'll still see some IX-X matches, but she has her chances also to be a top tier monster.

Right but when I needed them the most, WG wasn't really offering sales on port slots (this is going back 2 years roughly).  It will be to expensive to go back repurchase all those ships so I'm sunk.  I just press on since then.

Yes. Even if the nerfs go through, Akizuki should still be fairly competitive in ranked, plus the HE pen buff will make it so she doesn't require IFHE, which will make moving a different captain into her easier as you'll only need 10 points to be competitive rather than 14.

When they go on sale, I get as many as I can for upcoming lines.
