As long as you're making the most hilariously trollish buff request ever, let's give her guided missiles, radar, and a freakin laser.

That's funny that you had replied and it showed your reply in the window; I was wondering why that image was there. And you're welcome. :D

Since this was posted to me in my clan discord and I'm too lazy to read the whole thread, I'm just going to post my initial comment to my friends and read the thread afterwards because I'm lazy.

Honestly I kind of agree. As far as destroyers go, it's hard to combat other destroyers with the stealth since they can catch up so easily. It's more or less negligible. I can't even count the number of times a random lower tier destroyer has just zipped up to me and I was screwed over despite doing my best to be concealed. With the second point, the torpedoes are honestly really bad. However with that said it probably needs an artillery buff. The RoF and damage is quite poor. With the few number of guns it definitely needs improvements. Overall it's probably one of the worst premiums I own. I never really want to play it

Theres a lot of incredulity expressed in this thread - but a quick look through any of the topics in the "Discussions About Warships" will show that not every boat will work for every player, and impressions will vary greatly in regard various strengths and weaknesses.

I find the Leningrad to be a very strong DD at tier 7.  She is the bane of camping, bow tanking BBs - and capable of wrecking any DDs in her tier spread, due to the impressive speed and the relative difficulty in hitting her.

I like my Commander with EM, BFT, DE, AFT and CE.  She is more than just a Khab-esque gunboat - and with CE, is capable of capping and the occasional DS with her torps.

The boat is also a natural for the special SB module - running around at just shy of 48 knots - she is one of the first boats that teach hate of the Soviet DDs to new BB players - ha ha!

I approve this buff.

I love dropping my Khaba captain into my Leningrad, joining a division with 2 other Leningrads, and ruining everybodys night at 14kms and 45+ knots with laser guided Stalinium HE spam.

Like Khaba, If Lenin ain't spotted you're doing it wrong.

 

I recommend buffing the top speed. Approximately 55 knots seems reasonable.

You forgot about adding the bow mounted wave motion gun.

Which is still not good enough we need something more in line with the khab but without the terrible torps.

Please understand I'm not discarding or belittling your opinion - however - at 707 matches, a T7 DD - played in random - is beyond your experience level.

This is not a case of the boat being bad - just that the experience one gains entirely through number of matches played, is not high enough to be effective when exposed to the average player in this spread, who likely has a thousand (and will often have considerably more) matches under their belt.  This is especially true with DD play.  Lack of experience can sometimes be mitigated by the survivability of BBs in upper tiers - but DDs get no such concessions.

Your stats in Harekaze speak to the same truth.

My best advice would be to start up the Soviet DD line, and use Leningrad as she was intended - to help build the Skipper you are driving up the line.  By the time you reach Groz or Khab (and my advice would be Groz, as she is far more interesting than Khab) - you will very likely have the experience required in this type of boat to make full use of Leningrad's borderline OP-ness.

At this point, though - you are doing extremely well for your experience level, well above the curve from what I can see.  However - the effective use of T7/8 DDs is still a thousand or so matches ahead of you.

100% agree. Leningrad is so pathetic, sometimes I only score second or even third place on my team. What I hate is how I can sometimes hit a BB without starting fires. Definitely need to buff fire chance so that every shell starts a fire. Oh, and the smoke should burn red team ships that drive into it. And it should be able to submerge as well. And fly. And shoot exploding bananas. 

 

Buff Leningrad or I quit!
