Well done WG on placing in a horribly unbalanced Japanese destroyer. 

Yes I know they are fragile...but the detection range is a joke.

I've had 5 games today with Kamikaze DD's in them...sometimes on my side sometimes not, without fail they have racked up stupid numbers of kills.

 

As an addendum I just had a battle where a Kamikaze managed to get to within 4 km's in OPEN WATER without being spotted. Suffice to say I ate a crapload of torps.

 

Kudos WG on your game-balancing skills....again.

 

Were these things even tested before they were bunged into the game?

The Kamikaze is not that different than it's T5 non prem ship, and dd's are good at finishing off an opponents, but personally you don't really want to go full steam in to a battle with one. 

There simply a finishing dd, fragile, not that fast, eh guns... But like most things Japanese in my experience good torps (7km range thou) 

 

Kills are not the factor here, looking at the statistics

I would expect the ship to end up being closer to the Minekaze

What do you mean by unbalanced? As far as stats go they're practically similar to that of a Minekaze even the Detection is close at 6.2KM... although the camo does bring it down close to the Minekaze's detection range...

 

It's just that this one's Premium... She's not much special but she's a money and XP earner so I'll take mine for a spin anyday...

The Kamikaze, is just a prem Minekaze with less AA guns and slower. It has the same base detection values as the Minekaze (with/without camo), same number and type of guns, same 3 sets of dual mounted 7km torpedoes. It does have a slightly better gun placement to allow it to turn and engage faster, but that's about it.

 

Kamikaze is not OP. You should ride one and try.

 

If you spot a Kamkaze/Minkaze at 4km, means you are sailing towards it while it has laid smoke, which means you will be expecting torpedoes coming you way.

And the Kami is a tad slower than the Mine...

True.. because i already sold minekaze, i dont mind having kamikaze, but this ship is worse in term of speed.

i still like isokaze better....

what makes kami better than minekaze?
her gun placement layout, better turret traverse time, and a little more HP

what else?
shes premium

what else?

none i think. 

her rudder a little worse than minekaze,

her speed, a little slower,

her AA, non existence

 

her detection range is exacltly same as isokaze, minekaze, mutsuki

6.2 km base.

6 km with camo

5.4 km with camo + concealment expert.

saying that she is undetectable in 4 km in OPEN WATER is bullshit. 5.5 km is as close as she can be without being sighted, since shes already get spotted in 5.4 km 

try to play minekaze if u dont get ur kamikaze. and tell us, can u get close to 4 km in OPEN WATER without smoke, undetected?

On occasions, I've managed to remain undetected at 5.9km but for just a very briefly moment. I mainly shrug it off to lag. 4km without smoke? Good luck!

kamikaze is a great cash cow, and that's it, it's even a little worse in overall stats compared to minekaze. only advantage that she has over minekaze is the crap AA, which means that u dont even need to bother turning it off at the start of them match lol.

you can use shimakaze or ZAO's captain in this ship without punishment lol

I don't think many palyers will give a level 15 captain for minekaze
