Hunaghe is in the premium shop for 9.99.  We all know the ship is nothing crazy but the price is reasonable.  Figured it is worth a share.

I spec mine for AA and use her in operations. She does pretty well. A solid contributor to the team.

She is underappreciated and a unique ship.  Worth the cash.

Interesting. I went looking for stuff on her as soon as I saw the sale price. Mouse's review was graphically unflattering, while on YouTube Flamu despised it and Zoup's review preceded the addition of Perth smoke. I know there's one crazy-dedicated guy who vowed to make it the only ship he ever played, but I don't know how he's making out with it.

from what i can remember,he might be the best huanghe player,period.

it's a lot of dedication for one ship.

Reminds me of something I read elsewhere: to paraphrase - "Fear not the man with many guns. Fear the man with just one gun, for he knows how to use it best."

Despite the loss of a turret, my damage has been on par with the Perth thus far. Sadly only 40k'ish average damage, which is likely telling of how good I am a player, but I like her. Would be nice if I could use the reload booster and Hydro at the same time though.

I played here a bit as a Pirate and I am very tempted at that price.

Have it and the Perth.  Crawl smoke is fun, really need a high point captain to make it successful (IFHE), struggles on damage - sometimes can be an effective DD hunter, do not take out very often but it is an interesting ship to play (especially if for under $10).  At this point the only PA cruiser, so limited abilities to share captain if going for cruiser build vs PA DD build.

It's not a bad boat in Ops. The AA is very nice in several of the scenarios. I haven't felt like the missing guns were a major issue.

@Taylor3006 I already have the Huanghe, so I can not tell you how many doubloons it is in the game.

if you buy the Huanghe bundle and already have it in port, you get 3,576 doubloons which is $17.43 in the Any Doubloons in the shop.

if you buy the Huanghe and already have it in port, you get 2,231 doubloons which is $11.40 in the Any Doubloons in the shop.

Assuming the sale is still going on, the Huang He should be selling at 3780 doubloons.

Okish boat for operations, excellent as a AA ship there. As a trainer or for serious play... not so much.

I'd say the Huanghe is worth the buy. It's a fun ship, but I really don't think it's good as the Perth. Only thing better about it is the AA though in my opinion. The Perth just does every thing else so much better.

i got her from supercontainer, its a trash bote that i probably would end up selling.

In tier 6, it's the #5 cruiser in dmg per game and #2 in WR. I'm pretty sure it's not trash. Coincidentally, I had mine out in a couple of randoms this morning and it's pretty powerful with it's unique smoke. I don't even have IFHE on mine and i was dealing good dmg.

That she is. I've only driven her in about 15 Randoms but I did pretty good. Her guns may be few but they're pretty accurate and effective.

Perth is clearly superior ship and my win rate in Leander is 81% so I am down to experiment, I like the squishy smokey cruisers.  Although I am horrible with my Fiji, I get deleted out of nowhere all the time.  I think it is payback for my Fiji abuse when I grinded the Lyon.

Just wanted to point out the sale comes out to 1925 dubs+free port slots.  Overall not a bad deal for a Tier 6 cruiser to derp around in.  The 19.99 deal includes a 10 point captain, however I just went for the 9.99 (can't really beat it) and will grind out my own captain.  This is way better then then 30% off anniversary tier 6's, plus a free port slot.  This should brake the deal down for everyone wondering.

It was a running joke for awhile that you needed one to join our clan.  The ship is a riot at times.  The problem is it your team utterly taters it just didn't have the DPS to carry.
