Ok...  here’s the deal.  Cossack just went from being a massive turd to being possibly one of the best DDs at tier 8.  5.5 km concealment with 59 second reload on her torp launcher.   She. Is. Gud.

Also...  post AP nerf...  lulz.  I’ll be playing DDs even more aggressive.  Will be interesting to see how this plays out and shifts game meta.

I like Cossack before the buffs.  She did need them though.  I couldn't keep her guns on the target in a turn.  Not good for a gunboat dd.

4 Guineas to go!!! This is going to be a fun 4-Day weekend. I'm looking forward to picking up this little ship as soon as I can!

If you are not sure how many Guineas you can earn over the next three weeks, see this post. You can also get RN DD crates, 10k Cmdr XP for the Cmdr that finishes the mission, 5k XP boost for the ship that finishes the mission, 2.5k FXP and more.

 

The 10 Guineas for $0.99 special was in the shop before and I believe after the patch IF you have not got it already. You can only get this special once. Leftover Guineas will be converted to credits, 1:100k when patch 8.0 drops Jan 9th/16th-ish.

Wait, were the firing angles improved? In yhe changes only the torp reload and turret traverse were mentioned.

Edited OP.  Might have misread the notes passed onto us but I’ll confirm with weegee

Thanks alot. You may have thought this was  the case since the improved traverse should make the gunnery more comfortable. :Smile_honoring:

I have both! but here's the question for you. Do you prefer Cossack or Lightning? While Cossack has a ton of alpha damage, I feel that the Lightning is a bit more universal and can fill the same role. What's your thoughts?

I played her a metric crapton before the buffs.

I took her out this morning and my oh my.  Very nice.  Her guns now stick in hard turns.  She is going to be one heck of a knife fighter now.

I, for one, appreciate the improvement.

Good job, WG.

Next Wednesday I'll have it. And the new season of Vikings as well.

 

It will be good to see Rollo again.

I was thinking the same thing holy crap what a difference. I even respec'd out of EM for JOAT to get my smoke up faster. The turrets aren't US DD fast but they feel close.

I encountered a Cossack earlier today while driving Z-39 and discovered that Cossack's 8 guns and fast turret rotation with 5 second reload aint no joke. Driving a DD, you don't want to get into a gunfight with one. I came out second place in that fight.

I don't know how many more Guineas I need to get Cossack, but I think I'm going to buy what I need and grab this bote.
