Oh boy, let's hope we don't get a flood of those. Nice work as always, though I would like to point out Concealment wise that iirc Nicholas can reach a detection of 5.8km, giving her also a small stealth advantage over the T-61

It's not worth $100; it's free and early if you want to spend $100 on other stuff.

T6 premiums are normally about $30CDN; I'll call this one at $45CDN bare-bones, with package deals rising to somewhere around $70CDN including flags, doubloons and a 10 point captain.

Keep in mind, the 25,000 doubloon-spent is an early-access promotion.  She's going on regular sale on August 17th.

Not overpowered, but the ship doesn’t cost $100....

And that ladies and gentlemen is why I waited for T-61. No real flaws, standing in the middle rankings even at her worst, and being a DPM monster. Plus, she's a great trainer for the more standard German DD captains that don't use the 150mm guns.

If I can get my ticket straightened out after I derped and spent 25k gold 2 hours before 8pm (but after opting in to participate), I'll have both the 39 and the 61. 

Nice to see this ship coming to light.

@LittleWhiteMouse

I've been waiting with all of the others and I'm going to buy this boat.  Having said that, I also have the Z-39 and I bought her as a stop-gap while waiting on the T-61.  I really like the Z-39 and in several ways the Z-39 is very similar to the T-61.  Do you think they are all that similar in play-style and how they compare to their competition tier-for-tier?  Based on your review, I think they are fairly close.  If so, the T-61 will be a good fit for me.  I'll find out soon but your opinion is appreciated.

So, LHM a good review. A few questions though:

 

1.  What mod1's do you recommend?

2.  How well does she perform uptiered?

  1. I cover that in the review, silly, under "Options".
  2. Very well so long as you keep in mind she gets outspotted by everything bigger than her when facing tier 8s.  But then she can just go full torpedo-boat mode and it doesn't matter.

Finally, she is here. Despite all of the hype for her being an overpowered ship, it is probably not acknowledged by WG because her superiority is through "balanced" stats, in the same way as Cesare and K. Albert. Probably just giving her worse reload, or just stripping off the Hydro (or both) would have been enough to balance her.

Well, now that this is the final version, will just buy her then. Would like to get another OP ship like Kamikaze and Cesare xD.

Okay, saw it under upgrades. Hydro mod, it is then.

One thing. The camo bonuses differ in the announcement versus the review. There it says 200% to XP. Which is correct?

Thanks for the review.    They're always the measure of quality.   Hope you are enjoying the great outdoors.

On the Durability part of the review.  For HP the T-61 is 3rd from the top and right at the top of the second tier.  Yet you give it a Fair rating.   Is that because it's being measured against the durability of all tier VI ships of all types not just DDs?

Hi

I think that's for early buyers once she goes fully live I think she may just have a different Camo maybe ?

She only measures against the same tier and type, so T6 DD in this case. And in T-61s case, she's barely ahead of the next group of ships, while the two ships above her are a large chunk of health ahead.
