I really like playing the Minekaze and the only thing comparable in a premium ship is the Kamikaze or Fujin. It there anyway to get either of these two ships?

I started playing just as the "Pearl" contest was wrapping up so I missed the chance at getting a Kamikaze R but I have always wanted one.

Thanks

Right now, the only way to get one is to heavily invest in Christmas crates.

Santa crates and fundraisers... If I were you and you really want a rare ship... I would advocate it be in a fundraiser... Many people got their MO and Kami that way...

It has to be stressed that you can dump lots of money into those Christmas Crates, if you are after a specific ship, don't be surprised if you don't get what you want.  I still remember people bought a bunch of them wanting Missouri.  Some got lucky.  Others had threads crying about how they spent hundreds of dollars and not get her.

 

The funny part is I've seen this happen in other games as well.

I bolded heavily for a reason.

Edit:  I should mention I don't buy Christmas crates.

Though not a premium, I can recommend Shenyang, a Minekaze with US guns and deep water torps that sits at tier IV.

Just purpose to ram any boat you encounter.

You're in a Kamikaze.

You're welcome.

Nope. Kami is pretty much broken OP. So I doubt WG will sell it directly again. Fujin isn't quite on the same level, but still pretty good. As others have said, the only way is probably Christmas crates (as they haven't announced anything we can only assume based on previous years). But again, you need to spend A LOT of money to guarantee one. Hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars if you want to guarantee a particular ship. Probably not worth it, but people have done it (usually for Missouri). But even that isn't available right now.

Fujin and Kam R are the same boats.

If you're curious to see how last Christmas crates went, here's December 2019's.

Huh, I knew they were similar but assumed Fujin had a couple small differences. Didn't realize it was Kami in a Halloween camo. Well learn something new everyday.

The funny story with Fujin and the Kamikaze-clones was that when first released, not many cared about them.

"I got Minekaze and she absolutely rocks.  Why would I need to pay for similar Premium clones?"

IJN DDs were at the peak of their power in that era.  The future was bright.  IMO, not many people went for these Premiums.

 

But then came the torpedo and Tech Tree IJN DD nerfs.  Fujin and Kamikaze are what IJN DDs used to be.  Now all the sudden they were prized Premiums, and when WG put them on sale again long after the nerfs, a bunch of guys jumped on them.

Yeah, they were in their heyday just as I started. The IJN DDs were actually scary, those little monsters would just torp you to death. And yeah, Kami was considered a fun little premium, WG even gave it away in an event:Smile_teethhappy:. Sometimes I forget how much the game has changed in my four years of playing...

Yep.  

Remember when Minekaze was the 10km torp monster at T5 and made Kamikaze R look tame?

IJN DDs were absolute beasts in those days.

I remember I was sunk in a match and I spectated this Tier VIII Fubuki player on my team who was doing very well.  Very late in the game, he spotted this lone BB at long range.  They were both sailing parralel to each other.  The Fubuki player fired all 3 launchers at long range.

Me:  "Hey Fubuki, is that wise doing long range drops?  Isn't that a low chance to hit?"

Him:  (Because it was going to take long for the torps to arrive) "No it's good.  The BB player thinks he's alone and he's rushing to join his team further down.  If anything he's sailing straight at a constant speed, making him an easy target."

 

Sure enough, I watched his torps take forever and the BB player never changed course, never altered speed.  You can see when the BB player spotted the torps and tried to evade, but it was way too late.  The detection was a lot better for IJN DD torps in those days.  The BB had pretty high HP levels but Fubuki scored an insane amount of hits.  BB ded.

 

Watching that happen was the single biggest lesson for me about sailing when torpedo threats are around.  Most especially since the BB player thought he was safe because he was not in a zone where there was fighting.

 

However, I still recall grinding old Tier VI Mutsuki and it sucked even in the IJN DD glory days.  Her torpedo range was worse than her concealment range.  The only stealth torping you could do was kiting.

 

I still remember Triple Shima Divisions were a thing.  Radar was also very rare back then.  Des Moines, Atlanta for example didn't have Radar.  Then again, RTS CVs were IMO, at the peak of their power, especially in 2015.  I still recall 3 TB (12 TBs max), 3 DB (12-15 DBs) Hiryu, Shokaku in Tier VII & VIII, and these were tech tree CVs.

 

2015-2016 were some crazy years in this game.

Christmas crates... but if you want to guarantee getting them, you need to go after ALL the premium ships on offer in the crates.  If you buy the most expensive bundle (the $100 bundle), I averaged between 4 and 5 premium ships in the $100 buy.  Again, the computer algorithm is designed to give you the lower tier premiums and less desirable ones first... so Missouri, Musashi, Kamikaze, etc. (ships not sold anymore) will usually be the last ones you get as re-rolls to replace the ship you won, but already own.  I was able to get Fujin and Kamikaze last Christmas doing exactly this, I only had 4 premiums that I didn't own and none of them were for sale anymore, got all 4 with a single $100 purchase.

They're not worth even $30 in today's game imo.  They can still play that fun game from the past, but you only get away with it about 20% of the time.  Once you score a few kills, 2 CVs just decide your time in the match is over and autodelete you with a few clicks for playing too well (if they even let you start playing to begin with).   

Honestly, if you really want to play the way that Kami clones play/played... just go get t-61.  Its every bit as good except that you have 2 launchers instead of 3, plus you get the guns and hydro, etc.   You're not missing much.  Playing T5 anything pretty much sucks now, let alone DD.   T-61 at least has a decent chance it will only see one carrier.  Same rules apply though.  Play too well, you are removed from the match.

I have suggested to @Hapa_Fodder and other CM's that we have a Dockyard !!!  Why not be able to select a "retired" ship and have a "canned" Campaign to build that ship !  That it would take spending some doubloons and a "Lot of Time" to grind through to get that ship you've chosen to build.   NOTE: if I were running this novel idea, if you start the "Build a Ship" concept and another event uses the Dockyard, you can't participate.....One or the other....

This concept does several things:  allows new players an opportunity to access retired ships older players actually "bought"'; it serves that community that are collectors by giving them an option to add those unique ships to their collections: and, it just makes sense to allow new players the opportunity to invest in a ship and the game....  This is a pretty simple sales concept and this corporation already has several campaigns in the game so, it wouldn't take too much to add this option......and, the rewards are more players inventing the time and money in the game !!!  A win-win.

Come on Hapa, throw us a bone !!!

The rework kept the Kami in check for a time but......if the air spotting reduction goes live...
