I love this little boat, but its games like this that are most satisfying, so share what favourite boat can do for you

Here is another one, it always helps when a team supports as well though.

I love Asashio too, such a feisty character, surprisngly excellent guns, deadly torpedos when opportunity knocks versus bbs. I know, I am a very poor dd player in comparison to the OP., but Asashio quickly became a favourite of mine among the dd premiums (and I have lots of them)/

She's a fun little boat. The guns are workable and with the right use can chunk out a fair bit of the reds health while you beat a hasty retreat.

Many time I've seen players sailing the border with her just trying to torp spam at the back line, which is imho wasting her abilities.

Don't have the damage screenshot for the 223K game, but if memory serves right its the same game I got the four kills in, two dds and two bbs.

just now : Not my best battle, very lagged out, but top class team mates, and a very trollish ending;;; THE BEST KIND OF ENDING (I sank an Alaska with my main guns, oh the humiliation! :)

I have been getting comps of late due to keeping my mouth shut and not telling the rest of the team they're a bunch of scrubs, I managed 4 compliments from one match due to sinking the crap out of the red team and capping everything

Assholio comes out when I get frustrated and want BBs to feel pain...

Note the spotting damage. If there isn’t a CV, you can keep your teammates guns blazing all game.

Very nice. Please send me the upgrade package that allows you to shoot down planes.

Usually all i hear is the red cv laughing whenever I am the target of his "affections" as my little pop pop guns rage away ineffectively.

This ship was funny when it released.  BB players were all upset she was being released with a ton of them stamping their feet around here saying they were going to leave the game.

"We Battleships make the bulk of the playerbase so WG needs to rethink Asashio.  If we leave the game dies!"

BB players were all like:

IIRC it was a really dumb Ryujo CV and most of the planes were fighters, not attack aircraft.

Most players don’t seem to realize just how fragile most CV fighter/spotter planes are. That’s one of the big “problems” with the latest AA buffs. When you drop fighters to keep a DD spotted, even a Haida might shoot them down.

Asashio is balanced.  It has ridiculous strength and weaknesses in one package. But MatchMaker determines when you can have a good game or not. Two BBs per side and a CV is misery. 5 BBs per side, no CV and only 1 radar is supper time. 

BTW inside 8 km Asashio AP can pen and even citadel broadside cruisers. In the first day or two I scored multiple citadels on an Edinburgh who proceeded to rant at me in chat even though he’d sunk me.

It was funny to be hold, truly glorious days!

 

That said, it pains me to see some guys use her torps wrong.  Watching them fire torps at Cruisers and Destroyers, it brings an amusing smile to my face.  They either didn't know better or they did it out of instinct, panic.

R27X4R7.jpg

 

I remember long ago in some game I was playing some Cruiser, I worked alongside an Asashio as we were working some player BB down.  I was doing some weird close range dance where the BB was trying to maneuver and swing turrets my way, all while I dropped torps into him.  It wasn't enough to kill him, of course.  But I was expecting Asashio to torpedo us as I had the BB sailing circles in one area.  The DWTs never came our way but I managed to finish the BB with gunfire, flood, fire effects, and some gun assist from Asashio.

I asked the Asashio player afterwards why he didn't shoot his DWTs at us, I was at very close risk on getting deleted had the BB gotten a few more extra seconds in our long dance.

"I didn't fire because you were in the area."

:Smile_Default:

Bless his soul, he meant well.

I told him about the peculiarities about his DD's torpedoes.  He could have fired and the torps wouldn't even hit me, but the BB would have been in deep sh*t.  So, he learned.

I remember he had a good game, he would have an even better one if he took that shot because the BB wasn't even thinking his DD was even in the area and was sailing in circles in one area.  Hell, the BB was so distracted he could have charged guns blazing and plant point blank torpedoes into him.

I use the Asashio torps on smoke CA's and DD in the hope it will flush them from their smoke.  I know they won't hit and I only do it when I have nothing else pressing to attack, but you would be surprised how many ships I see speed from their smoke not understanding I cannot hurt them with torps. 

I even had one of those game with 6 BB on sleeping giant and I literally got to their side and put 4 torp spreads out, only for one of the reds to comment "what kind of torp is that?" as I slammed into most of their team, and those running at distance still got hit.

But where I do get a lot of kills is the BB player steaming at full speed across the back of the map thinking they are safe from torps as he is behind his team, only to eat and sink from torps I launched from 17 km away.

With so many new players we have now, you are getting a mix of players that do not understand the Asashio at all and how it works or what it can do.

Tai only gets comps from CV haters when he goes on one of his epic rants. Sometimes I think he owns stock in a salt mine.

It's amazing how many compliments I pick up for dissing the Sky Griefer. I also get complimented a bunch in coop.
