I think you just tossed the biggest log onto the fire of "ship is OP". 

Regardless of that aspect - awesome game. It takes a combination of many things to break into those numbers.

The discussion about this ship is gonna be that it is OP because players having games like this.

But I think right now it benefits from being in games with 4 or 5 DDs per team.

You do not have to be the one pushing a cap until the later stages of the match.

So you can sit back behind a Gearing, Shima, Groz or Kitakaze and smoke up and just stack damage on anything spotted.

When the Matches start to get back to 2 or 3 DDs per team I think it having to fall back to the Main duties of the primary DD will begin to show it's weaknesses.

It is really fun to play though I had a 6 kill game yesterday with about 190k but I have had more 40k games when I was forced to actually be the DD.

Congrats.  My two best games are in the Zao, so I think it's all about the first damage if you want the top numbers.  But nice game.

"Radar is Broken, DD unplayable!"

Because they had ONE game where they didn’t get butt [edited] by a Des Moines or Wooster?

Actually, how do you know there were any radar ships in that game? Where were they relative to OP and did they die early?

You are one of the top 10% of the players in the game so in a ship that is as wildly OP as the Harugumo you can just step in and put up amazing numbers like that. It is not just the best gunboat in the game it is a pretty darn effective torpedo boat. Wargaming seems intent on breaking tier 10 or making it world of destroyers and light cruisers.

The problem is that fire damage is not worth much at T10. I try to set one fire and then swap to AP if they are anywhere close to broadside.

that ship isn't a dd it's a cruiser pretending to be a dd and fooling all of you

enjoy it while you can it will be nerfed into oblivion as soon as everyone squanders their FXP to jump to this aberration

LOL, OP! I took a look at your stats for the day to see what PR that garnered you.

I think you broke the stat engine! 13k PR ???

Because that sort of talk is commonly used by those who think radar is fine.

You didn't use the :Smile-_tongue: emoji, which would have made your intention clear.

I put it in quotation marks, thought that'd be enough. My bad then.

That is simply amazing !  Great job !   I played several matches last night and watched the Kitakaze's and Hara's get focused and stomped, other then maybe the Wooster right now I can't think of other ships that are being focused as much. 

762 main gun hits.. LOL wow..  did your finger get tired of hitting the mouse button?  "Carpal index finger"

Dayum, nice game!

 

If you don't mind me asking, what build are you using for your commander?

I'm not really sure how they'd nerf it.

 

Outside of the guns, it really has nothing going for it. Bad conceal, turns like the Venetian Hotel and Casino, as big as a cruiser, accelerates like a Geo Metro going up a hill, bad AA, etc..

 

If you nerf the guns the entire ship is pointless. :/

 

I'm interested to see what Legendary Mod they create for it.

They had two radar ships a Cleveland and a Des Moines.  I gunned down the Cleveland in open water inside of radar range at the end of the game.

3300 base xp I didn't get any caps lol.

Was actually in a 3 man div with a second Harugumo that did 130k dmg and 4 kills and a Worcester that made a small mistake and got nuked early.  So combined we had ~460k dmg and 9 kills.

Not really I mostly just held the button down as I fired 1980 shells total.  So I could have did better.
