When the Huang He first made her appearance, the reviews for her were not what you would call kind. When I got mine in a Christmas crate I didn't do much with her. And so she sat in my port, neglected and forgotten.

Until the current Fly! Strike! Win! missions appeared. I've been using her for the Pan-Asian tasks and have been having pretty good luck with her. I bet she's been seeing more activity generally with the CV rework due to her good AA.

So, to all you captains sailing the Pan Asian ugly duckling, post your Huang He successes here. This is my best game so far.

It's got its strengths and it's got its weaknesses and a player that is aware of both can really make it work well

It is solid ship.  It is not OP, it might be a little UP but it is just plain fun.

First game of the day. Bottom tier this time and still able to contribute. Still can't get over how well this ship is performing for me. Maybe it's because everyone's eyes are on the skies and ignoring me in my little boat.

I need to take that ship out.  Sold my Saipan (didn't really have interest in CVs before, still dont now).  To attempt to get the Irian in the Lunar new year triple bundle.  I had enough dubloons at that point to get two tiers of the crates.  In the 2 sets I literally got all the  ships and their special camo's lol, so I didnt have to buy the third tier.

It's kinda a fun ship, and I don't know why really.  Nice game!

  That's my experience to a T.   Not sure WHY I like it,  but I do.   And it performs for me, more often than not.   Probably because it's DIFFERENT- an oddball, like me!

 My experience is just like the OP's.  Got it from a crate, and ignored it- mainly due to the awful reception it got.  When the snowflake event came around, I took it out and, Whoa!  This thing is pretty fun!

  I got the event perma-camo for it, and love it.   One of the best looking camos out there!

BUY THE THIRD SET!!!  You'll get 11,500 doubloons for the duplicate ship! if you have 8888 doubloons, you'll turn it into 11,500 right? I got 11,500 when i oepned the third set

Huang He is a fun ship, especially in operations.

There is a guy who loved it so much he changed his user name to Huang He and posted a couple of threads exposing her virtues.

Just had the game below, not bad for a light cruiser me thinks.

I didn't even think of that.  Forgot Irian was guaranteed in the 3rd set.  Thanks for the tip.

EDIT: Ha ha got it.  With that 11.5k bomb, the gold I got in lunar crates from the packages from my calculations all those ships and special camos only cost me about 10k dubloons in total (around 40-45 bucks real money) damn near every crate that wasn't a premium camo or a ship was 750 gold or free xp.

The moral of the story is, if you get lucky like me, those packages are totally worth it and you get a bunch of ships for 45 bucks.  If you are horribly unlucky you pay about 100 bucks for 1 ship.

 

I got super lucky on the mega santa crates this year too.  I shelled out cash for 3 20 stacks over christmas and got 4-5 ships each stack plus a metric boat load of streamer camos, Im not going to run out of those for awhile.

I recalculated and I spent closer to 10k dubloons but still.  Im starting to think WG as a whale algorithm and gives better luck to people who dump money into the game.  Buddy of mine spends sparingly, he bought one stack of black friday crates and got one ship, the B tirpitz of which he already had the regular, whereas in one stack I got the B version of the 2 ships I didnt have the normal version of.  And he got one mega stack on christmas and only got one ship.

Yup, I have a love fest with Huanghe as well. I LOVE to HATE it! LOL :Smile_glasses:

I got it out of a crate in 2017. Have not played it much as I just don't care for it. I keep it so A) - I don't get it again and B) for situations like the current missions where it can be used. I actually prefer to use Anshan and LoYang however and have done that. Used Irian too for one of them where it was allowed. Think I used the Huangster once for the current missions. 

With that said different ships appeal to different folks. I am glad you like it and do well in it. :Smile_great:

Funny thing...I did and purchased it some months ago......as I described in another post she is my "money boat.....She is my only premium. Best 12 dollar investment you can make.

Its big fun creeping around in the smoke. It makes it easy to hide and have a reliable escape route.

to all you captains sailing the Pan Asian ugly duckling,

I felt better when I saw your torp numbers....I can't seem to hit the broad side of a barge. 

You can pretty much ignore the CVs. It just walks through the planes shrugging off most salvos without help and as you said she is a pretty tiny target.

Used the Huang He in Operation Aegis. The creeping smoke lets you farm damage from the ships escorting the transports like nobody's business. It also let me get close enough to the battleships to use torps without getting myself deleted.

Operations with random teams can be really hit or miss so shout out to the rest of the team for bringing home a 5 star win.

Never really thought much about it, the rare occasion Id run into it. After playing it a few games. Seems fun/different. Sure my avgs will regress to the mean, but doing well the few games so far.

My Huang He odyssey continues.

I think it's hilarious that I landed only 2 AP shells and both resulted in citadels. Pan-Asian AP for the win!
