Making Tier V Japanese DDs suffer

Hello all!

Before I start, I'd just like to make one thing clear: I'm not a lolicon. I'm just frustrated at the number of times in the past week my mid-tier games have been lost because of the fact that people refuse to deal with those pesky Tier V Japanese DDs: The Minekaze, the Mutsuki, the Kamikaze / Kamikaze R, and the Fujin. I've lost so many games because of these little [ REDACTED ] that I've decided to relieve myself of the pain of dealing with them by taking 8 of them into a training room and shoving them up with more than a few 5.5" French HE rounds and 550mm torps.

( For those of you wondering, I finally finished the French DD grind and unlocked the Klebér. I have a 15 point captain on it and I am saving credits to get the 6th slot upgrade )

So, if you happen to be driving any of the Tier V Japanese Destroyers, and I happen to be on the enemy team in that match ( usually the USS Monaghan, with the A hull plus a BFT + AR build ), well, let's just say that you've had it, one way or another.

And I'm sorry if this post offends anyone in any way whatsoever. This is not me being sadistic, this is me venting my frustration.

Well, I hope you all have a good day. The next edition of The Weekly Review will be coming soon, with either the Monaghan, the Edinburgh, or the Kleber being the main feature.

What do you want me to bring, a Nicholas?

Because I'll gladly do it. Torpedo boats have nothing on the best Tier V DD ( plus, I transfer my Monaghan captain to my Nicholas as well, which means 15K HP + 3.6 second reload AND adrenaline rush with a 5.8km detection radius)

Edit: I hate torpedo boats. HATE, HATE, HATE. SO. DANG. ANNOYING!!!!!!1!!!!!1!1

It sounds like you might have some anger problems. Torpedo boats are so easy to counter

Actually, I do. I just haven't had time for therapy and I've resorted to meditation and drinking tea for the time being. Yes, torpedo boats are easy to counter, but they frustrate me to no end.

The Monaghan is a piece of junk; you'd be better off in a Nicholas, but go ahead and bring it anyways. I'll wave at you while you climb into your lifeboat.

Maybe tomorrow or the day after. Unless Sunday is open.

Also, I've been looking for a gratutious excuse to go all in with my Kleber, and I'm thinking I might find it here.

( No, this does not mean that this post was a good ole bait n' switch, I'm being serious )

Here I thought Japanese DDs at all tiers were not able to operate due to CVs.

Actually, now that I finally got the Kamikaze, I know the definition of non-existant AA.  Especially when there are two red CVs.  But it does feel great to catch the CVs off guard and wreck them.  

And I also agree.....post the battle results!  You may want to agree on more parameters to avoid any "reasoning" after the battle.

Did the OP just threaten me? :cap_wander:

"Oh, it's just a Minekaze/Mutsuki/whatever."

Yeah, that attitude is a great way to end up with a half-dozen torpedoes in a place you don't want them. And anyone who ignores one of the Kami sisters is being just plain old tactically DUMB. The drivers of those things are far more likely than not to have long experience and be very dangerous. Thus they are priority targets, whoever they may be. If you want to increase your team's chances of winning, suffer not a red Kami to live.

What's it they say? If you want something done, do it yourself... :cap_like:

Tier 5 DD? Lol, I had to hunt them once in my QE because I was the only ship close enough to stop them from capping our base. I laughed as I swung the rudder hard left and hard right and the wave of badly aimed torps sailing harmlessly away from me. Turns out, there was TWO hiding in the smoke and the Kamikaze sank me with his torpedoes but not after I sank the other DD and blapped off most of the Kamikaze's health.

But yeah, it was frustrating that our cruisers and destroyers allowed two destroyers to cap our base.

Those poor 8km torp launchers with 6km detection (the minekazi have it even worse)...that 2km really don't give them much to work with and as soon as they're detected, it's a bad day for them. Concealment is about all that's going for them, and once they don't have that by doing something that'll actually impact the game...whelp!

I love my T5 IJN DDs, they're a blast. They might be the most fun ships in the game for me.

I wish I'd been one of the ones frustrating you!

Without losing, winning isn't any fun.

Nicholas is actually better. It only has four guns, yes, but it reloads over twice as fast and has more usable torpedoes, not to mention that amazing USN smokescreen. Also, did I mention that it eats up Tier IV planes?

My Tier V destroyers have been among my most-enjoyed ships: Mutsuki, Acasta, Jianwei...  Unfortunately with the recent increase to excessive levels of CV presence at that tier, they are not quite so much fun.  :Smile_sad:
