I moved my Tashkent Captain into the Udaloi. 14 pointer. Loaded it up and off to battle! Map : The Atlantic.

 

Moved into the center cap with a Gearing, 2 good gunboats. We instantly chased out a Fletcher. I put obe volley into it and he bolted. Did 3 hits, an incapacitation and we captured ' B '. Saw the ' detected ' signal hit my screen as soon as I fired that volley.

 

BOOM! Detonation. First hit the ship ever took.

 

Is this going to be a stream of suffering like the Tashkent was?

 

Sheesh..

You aren't running anti-det flags at T9?  In a DD? 

 

 

You only need the gun mod 1. I've run that in all my DDs and have had few times detonating.

RNG be like, thats a nice new ship you got there. Be a shame if something bad suddenly happened to it. :trollface:

The first game in a new ship is always interesting.

Basically what RNG did to me in my stock Fusou. 

 

"Ha! 60k first game in this thing, and people say it's bad?!" *cruiser salvo*

Nah, that was just bad luck.  The Udaloi is a fine gunboat DD.  It is completely enjoyable to play if you like the Russian DD play style.  And when you're done, you get the bonus prize of the Khabarovsk, which is amazing.

Dont think I will be going for that prize. 5 games in and.. man.. this thing just isnt ANY fun. I had one game that was ' ok '. 53 gun hits, 3 fires and even a torp hit.. But its such a F-ing money bag!

I think I've found some love. 123 gun hits, bunch of fires.. waiting on game to end to see final results.

 

Edit : Final Tally wasnt that bad. Im using the Xp-Camo ( 50 doubloons a game ).

 

206k coin and 38k damage done. Actually made money in the ship for a change. I think one hinderence is the Captain is still ' retraining ' and not having those skills is hurting the output right now.

 

Edit #2 : First kill ! It was a Butt-fuki Pummeled him severly. outran his torps..  2 fires to him.

Once you get those captain skills up it's a beast.  Especially once you've got it fully upgraded.  It becomes an AP slinging machine of doom.

For the night..the ships first 3 hours of gameplay.. 3 of 11 games won. Total of 4 kills. Overall damage? Im gonna say somewhere around 400,000. The gun hits are going up steadily as

 

Im figuring out how to fight torp boats in the caps. Its ( more or less ) charge at them. when they toss up smoke, torp their smoke and keep charging!

 

I'm not getting ' kills ' but im beating the bloody piss out of all the other destroyers Im running into. Im pounding 50% or better of the life out of ships and then another ship comes along and finishes them off.

 

Its a bit different as this ships stealth ability right now is ' meh ' at best. But its surprisingly fast.

 

Im wondering what modules for the ship itself it should have.

 

Cheers!

Well, this boat is my favorite Russian DD. Her stealth gets down to a detection range of 7.2km allowing her to stealth launch her 15 torpedo launchers. Yes she has 15 when she is fully upgraded. Check the type B Hull. She could also get her concealment down to 6.8km with her stock hull but to be honest that is a poor idea for her because her guns and torps on type B are so much better than she is a totally different ship in guns, torps, and hp when upgraded.

 

She can out brawl a Fletcher, put more fish in the water too, the only other ship with as many torpedoes is the tier 10 Japanese Shimakaze. Udaloi is a super ship!

Couple days playing, a few upgrades and I have to say.. this is a Brawling Destroyer.

 

I thought the Gearing would be able to brawl with 6 guns.. this thing is better. Flatter arcs and much easier to aim. 

 

Speed? I tend to run after other DD's chasing them down. Usually, A DD that relies on stealth tries to run off and get ' un-detected ' so they arent pummeled. Not with this thing around, I will chase them and let the team pummel them. Its almost like having a long-term radar so long as you survive while doing it.

 

Im getting about a kill a game average. Over 100 gun hits. Im not bleeding cash for running it. Im starting to like it as much as my Fletcher.
