Did Yoshino get set up wrong in Match Maker?

Yoshino has one of the highest damage rates of T10 cruisers, but one of the worst win rates. It seems like it is impossible to win in it. Can somebody explain why? Is there something wrong with Match Maker?

Damage farming

As a Yoshino captain myself, as well as with a clan mate. I can say that this is what happens 90% of the time.

Its middle of the pack in win rate (5th out of 10).

Stoli and Henry are noticeably better (and maybe the Rooster a little), but Moskva is barely better and the rest are worse.

MM is basic - it would have to be a different ship type or tier and that is not likely as those things would be in a look up table rather than coded individually.

It's because of her play style. She's great at wracking up damage, but is not by any means a high impact ship.

She just hides in the back kiting, burning down BBs with HE if they push into her. Great at producing high damage numbers, not great at securing wins. She can't push, contest caps, anything like that.

Its a high damage farmer, but your pretty useless when it comes to helping team win. Like supporting DDs.

Yoshino is like Henri. A very strong damage farming ship but with no impact. If your team collapse there's nothing you can do to prevent a defeat.

49.8% WR is still in the same ball park as all the other Tier X Cruisers, except for "Special Status Stalingrad."

 

The comment that Yoshino is a damage farmer is spot on.  Henri IV is the same way, and even her WR% isn't high compared to the other Tier X Cruisers (again, except "Special Status Stalingrad").

Yoshino can push and contest with the best of them. She's not an Henri, she isn't a Hindy. Somewhere in between. Fast. Armored. Great guns and strong torpedoes.

Sitting in the far back is not how one should play this ship.

Wholeheartedly agree. Its a great kiter and dmg farmer. Its also devastating to the general cruiser. Her HE hits very hard, and being IJN accurate means you can really punish things.

It shouldn't however, be played like a henri if you want to be impactful or carry in any way. Support friendlies by using those guns to take out anything that's hurting a teammate. 

Just my opinion tho.

Armored? 25 mm of bow armor cannot even stop a 15 inch gun shell...that is the smallest BB caliber shell she will ever meet. And she has 30 mm of belt armor.

Actually I'm near Yoshino and I was wondering what her credit earnings are like.

Credit is proportional to total damage. So, she should be good at it.
