Kii is a blast to play and totally underappreciated.

I usually take her into Ranked, the torps catch a lot of folks off guard, when you a brawling

A quick look and match in a ship not seen all that often. 

Hope you enjoy.

*Salute*

 

Thx for the build. I am about to use her to get credits. 

I have seen a guy on a match getting kraken. He was on fire!

My question is whether torp acceleration is a good skill to throw in.

I would say make yourself more of a tank than a torp boat.

But never secondaries right?

I got Kii in a Santa's Gift a few year back and really didn't play it very much.   Then of course game the gift boxes so I had reason to take her out again and I was completely shocked by how good she was.   I just couldn't believe how accurate her guns were and how comfortable overall she was to play.   I have to agree that she is a very underappreciated ship.

So does worth to buy

 

I welcomed Kii to my port.
I have no regrets.
I think Kii is a "gud 'bote".

I'm having a shockingly fun time with a full secondary build on Kii, even in this dumpster of a meta at the moment. It definitely isn't optimal, but it sure is fun.

The prior complaint has been that the secondaries had too short a range, but now with the general increase in secondary range I have also been wondering about a secondary-build Kii. My question is whether you have also taken IFHE to try to maximize the penetration of the 100 mm secondaries? (Thanks)

I have found the default pen sufficient and I personally prefer the extra fire chance. Also for me it is a captain point issue and the extra main battery turret rotation is critical. Particularly for brawling, you need every extra second.

Just Recently Added the Kii to the Port myself...    Have the Scharn Twins and the Tirpitz so having the Torp's on another BB seemed like a Grand Idea...    I do Like the Boat too, those Guns can put a Powerful Smack on someone....    Still Playing with Skills right now as well, so right now as it Sits running Prev Maint, Grease, Adrenaline Rush and CQC....     Basically the same Skills I have on my Roma Commander for the 10pts, but Roma also has Priority Target for the Extra 2pts...    I plan to Change that to BFT when I get the Next Point and will Likely Mirror on the Kii when I get the Commander this Far...

 

Seems to Work OK so far, the Reload Reduction on the Mains inside the 2nd's Range is a Great Boost on my Roma and I felt this one needed it a Bit as well...      It's not as Tanky as the Roma is, but it's Close....   And you can usually get the Torp's Out Long Before you get so Close they Punch thru your Sides, the one thing Roma doesn't Have in it's Arsenal, Angry Fish....

Today I pulled the pin and got the Kii and as a humble Coop player I find her a pretty good ship. She seems rather "awkward" in her handling and speed at times, as opposed to say the Tirpitz. I tried a full and partial secondary build on her and found that without main battery accuracy I was only getting hit ratios in the low 30's. With the main battery accuracy module she is up in the mid-40's and is manageable. I tried IFHE and without IFHE and settled on keeping the IFHE. Her 100-mm secondaries with 37 mm penetration really seem to tear up, basically everything. I am getting roughly 30% hit rates again at typical Coop pistol-firing ranges. Her torp angles are great and analogous to the Graf Spee, which I love and among this first handful of battles have not lost any torps something that often cannot be said for the Tirpitz and Scharnhorst. I think that I am really going to like her.....

My Kobayashi Crew from Thursday AM if I recall....    I just Loaded them Up and Hit Battle and then decided I'd record it...   Then, Realized I hadn't shut it Off until I had gone thru all 3 Boats...   lol

 

 

Love the Paint, Love the Boats...     Too Bad my First Game was so Buggered Up...   Was so busy trying to Get INTO Position for the one's I could Shoot, I was Too Far Out when the Next Batch was In Range and able to be Shot At, Roma made up for it a Little in the End though, but I hate when that Happens...    Only one Missing Now, Yamato and it's Paint, and I LOVE the Sound of those Guns...   SO Looking Forward to that....
