step 1: buy as many various premium ships as you like
step 2: buy 14760 doubloons or as close over that as possible
step 3: pluck all the xp from your premium ships and research the 2 izumo hull upgrades and the yamato ship (you will probably also have enough money to buy the yamato from the gold made)

step 4: don't profit because wargaming made you spend a lot of money
step 5: profit

Two threads and another comment about Izumo within the space of a couple hours.

 

I see that you don't like the ship. That's fine. But there's no need to make multiple topics about it.

On the other hand he's encouraging people to spend money to avoid a poor game play experience.

 

Be a bit rich for anyone to complain about that given WG's been doing it for at least 5 years with WoT and now WoWS.

 

:P

why is people hating on the Izumo. its my favourite gameplay style because I love the Nelson class BBs ;;

 

I didn't like it at first but the gun position and the fact its citadel is located further back (does not include the turrets unless deep down in the magdet spot) It is a really nice ship to play

 

also if you angle at a certain number (around 70degrees) the Izumo is immune to all shots from other battleships, while you are able to bring full firepower to bare. Every incoming shot will bounce unless you are flanked (and at that tier, if you don't watch your flanks I kinda think you are not ready for Tier IX and X gameplay)

If you skip the Izumo you're not worthy to drive the Yamato

That's a shamefur dispray! Vely dishonorabur! :trollface:

 

In all seriousness Izumo is the first step to adapt the Yamato playstyle that is completely different to other IJN BBs, so you won't be a total [content removed] when you drive the Yamato for the first time..

 

Wasn't the case for Kagerou & Shimakaze though, as both plays the same (i think) so skipping it should be fine :)

You sure you can bounce off 46cm shells :v ?

The ship isn't really bad, but Yamato just keep wrecking things up :l

its coz you cant run away in the izumo, and return fire while running away. Is this right?. 

she can.

although she can't do it better than amagi, she did better in returning fire while retreating than nagato.

 

amagi can shot 2 turret at 0 degree from her back. if she want to shot her X turret  (3rd turret)  she need to anggle a little (about 20-25 degree)

while izumo cant shoot at 0 degree from her back.  she need much less angle to shot her turret to her back

about 10-15 deg for the B turrets and 15-20 deg for C turrets

lol, same thing for me.. The farthest i went with IJN DD line was Minekaze and i don't really know if the playstyle changes as the tier goes since i can't see them 80% of the time :teethhappy:

Cmon guys I will proceed to buy Izumo anyway and I will join your agony and I hope I will triumph against it after all the blood, tears and swears (not a typo) and I hope I will be worthy to claim the Space Battleship Yamato!!! Action Stations!

 Why do you want to skip it? I always fear of Kagaro (other than Shimakaze) when sailing in a cruiser/battleship
