Loving the Cossack buff

The turret buff has made a huge change in the ship, went from having some issues killing DDs to a full on hunter killer, the quick and powerful guns plus the hydro makes it a very very scary ship! 

Case in point, got two Kraken's in a row, I know the damage is not super high on ether. Most of those kills are DDs on each battle. 

Now, 10km torps are a little much I will say, they should be dropped to say 7km/8km to match the other British DDs.

Only played it a few games so far but it does seem very strong.  I thought the single torpedo rack would be a bigger limitation but it reloads very quickly so it's not so bad.

Cool you were able to win on such low damage games. I uninstalled the game after I had back to back 168K and 162K damage losses one with 3 solo caps. It's stupid having to try and carry all the tier 10's that failed there way or paid there way up the tech tree.

I've had my fair share of over 100k loses, I'm still a newish player myself, still fully learning all the ships and their weakness's.

I tried 1 game post buff, was bottom tier, radar'ed and blapped.     Haven't bothered to try it again since yet.    Tier 8+ DDs are just not fun in general due to the over abundance of radar.

Her torpedoes have atrocious firing angles. If they nerfed the damned things then she may as well not even have them.

You had to play 18k matches to realize that? :D

People are realizing that in couple of 1000 matches :D

Most of the damage I'm doing is guns/fire and with a 5.5km detection range its easy to just move the ship for the firing angles .

I have luck and tend to not get radar'd to death, always watching where the radar ships are.

You don't need high damage DD games to win and/or carry.  Single-handedly taking out enemy DDs is usually effective enough to sway a match in your teams favor.  Anything above and beyond that is just a bonus.

I think the traverse buff was a good one. Although it's 'ahistoric' traverse makes a ship a lot more fun rather than a lot more powerful pound-for-pound in my opinion. Given that Lightning has a similar ahistoric traverse, and that the Jutland/Daring have good traverse and no need for EM it's a good quality of life buff as a trainer.

The reduction to 66s torpedo reload I'm less enamored of. It simply should be a downside of the inherent design of the ship, it cuts into the historic differentiation we have. The Tribal class was an inferior torpedo boat as a result of being the most gun-oriented RN DD up to that point, if not ever.

That's the whole idea.

Hugely narrowing the torpedo DPM disadvantage between Cossack and Lightning is questionable. It was already odd to give better torpedoes to Cossack (sunk Nov '41) than Lightning (completed May '41).

I get those games, " Damn I did no damage" but I took out the other teams DD's.

Ive played a few games in coop to get the feel for her before going to randoms in her.  I love her, she has the best mix of gunboat and torpedo boat ive run into, keep in mind i have not played every destroyer released.  Her guns will shred most DD quickly and her quick torpedo reload and low detection lets her stealth torpedo her way to victory.  My best game in her was 160k+ dmg, keep in mind thats co op.  I got along side an Iowa and a Yamato at close range and had no issue dealing 5k dmg AP volleys to their bow/stern/upperbelt/super structure so her AP is solid.   Very fun enjoyable boat. Side note I use IFHE on mine donno if others do im using my belfast/DD line capt.

That’s the problem with the Kidd. Single launcher, long reload, with only Benson torps.

Same. They’re very fun but not rewarding in the results screen.
