iirc dev said the IJN DD line already passed the testing phase in a reddit Q&A about 2 weeks ago. Not sure why the NDA wasn't lifted back then but now it's pretty confirmed that the line will be released in the next patch and there would be no further change.

The testing finished a few days ago, not weeks!

 

NDA was lifted last night, hence the videos

Just to clarify to everyone, it's CC NDA (which Flamu is under), not ST NDA (which never lifts).

Another line of slow boats !!! no match for Shima-tan speed !!! 

Especially that slow Duckizuki with only 4 Torpedoes !!! Shima-tan heff 15 !!! 

100mm so small no match for 127mm Rensohou-chan !!! 

 

I will grind once so Duckizuki can just sit and rot in port watching Shima-tan sorties :D:D:D

you would have to actually sortie Shimaseal, rather than your trashcan

I see that no IJNDD torp is longer than 10km despite is torpedo boat now...

 

make sure that every other ship in game don't have torpedo range longer than that to be fair.

 

or else, this so called 'revamp' is nothing more than mega nerf of IJNDD 'signature' weapon

its because of IJN dd habit just spamming their torpedo beyond 10km and crossing their fingers that their torpedo will hit something, they don't care if its enemy or allies.

 

i played back in CBT and i rarely see shimakaze at the back of the fleet and spamming torpedo, back those days most dd rush in the front (even kagerou) because its easier to hit targets when it was used against target below 8km.

 

still IJN torpedo was over nerft, they can be spotted beyond 2km and can easily avoided.

I can say about the new IJN DD revamp:

-As a fan of the Yugumo class destroyers, I'm very excited to play her. Luckily, I researched the Kagero but never bought it. The Japanese version of the Fletcher  minus the turret rotation. Her stats are so OP with the right commander skills. I'll expect some players to complain about Yugumo.

-That's good that Fubuki retains her specialty even when downgraded to Tier 6. Probably I'll retain her or buy her sister Premium ship.

-The new split line has torpedo reloader consumable, and it's very WOW.

-Akizuki hype is real, pewpewpewpew incoming, her AA, fitting her reputation as an air defense destroyer. Overall, this ship is way better than Atlanta/Flint which can  be citadeled.

 

I'm excited that these destroyers will come soon. That's all.

yeah, and they only have 4 torpedoes, so not really wow

 

Akizuki only, the rest has more torpedo launchers.

WG good thinking : encourage IJNDD player to play more aggressive by nerf long range torp but give a great speed torp (F3) in return

WG bad thinking : discourage IJNDD player to play aggressive by implement 'RADAR' and kill every single IJNDD dare to get close...

I have been playing the shimakaze primarily using F3s. Its hella fun. High risk High reward play. I like it so much that I bought perm camo for the shima.

 

Looking at the notes. I'll buy the kagero and hatsuharu tonight. Since you will get compensated for them for moving.

 

This will get you an akizuki and yugumo in there slots. But you also keep the kegaro and hatsuharu. Which makes you start on tier 6 in the split line.

Don't know why but people still love Shimakaze's 20 km wall of skillz. 

 

Who needs talent when you can fire a wide spread torp wall and then go make a coffee?
