Fast reload on guns? Check, 

Fast transverse? Check

Got torpedoed by own teammate? Check.

Good AA? Check, shot down 6 planes on hiryuu without AA setup in the first several minutes of battle

Problems? Low damage per shot for HE and so is AP, cant pen with HE, AP overpens on DDs

Three consumables: Smoke, Engine Boost and Torp reload.

Can function as Torpedo DD when needed.

Overall impressions? Good.

Suggested captain skill:

Lv1:  BFT (quicker reload) or BoS (play it safe)

Lv2: Torp AE (torpedoe is still decent) or Last stand (play it safe)

Lv3: Superintentdent (Nuff said) or torp acceleration(can do but not recommended)

Lv4: AFT (longer range+more AA to troll CVs) or Demo Expert(moar fire!) or SE (play it safe)

Lv5: CE (Invisifiring) or Last chance (can do but not really recommended, gun reload is already very quick)

Triple Division with Akizuki + Torp Reload booster to each = Concentrate torp area = Raising the dust of hell for any ships = gg

I think it's fair to compare apple-to-apple . We're discussing about the new Tier 8 IJN DD of course and after all let's help OP by giving some constructive inputs discussion on how the build would likely to be.

 

Back to topic: I strongly suggest AFT and CE for best effect since Akizuki can easily take advantage on so called invisi-firing.

 

Regards.

I don't think We need to give any kind of input. It feels like OP is reviewing ship not asking for suggestions.

Kept my Hat, Got the Akisuki with the [content removed] DD shuffle.

Couldn't be happier.

Oh the ship ???

Ambush master / Torp [content removed]

  • 9 long lance Torps (that's a torp wall)
  • Arty with a bite. (127mm over 12,5km)
  • Nice speed
  • Mediocre manoeuvrability  

 

Derogatory, inappropriate language. Post edited, user sanctioned.

Tripple IJN DD = Lose, doesn't matter what.

Tripple Zao = at least I never saw them win.

Tripple Yamato = well only if players know how to Yamato, most of them don't.

 

Specific to this thread, triple Akizuki = no DD in the team at all. GG!

Akizuki? PFFT. forget about akizuki, yugumo is a freaking beast. 4.3 km invisi-fire buffer? good reload and good shell speed? f3 torps + torpedo reload? what russian DD? what USN DD? jesus. most versatile and deadly DD the world has ever seen. why pick other tier 9 DD?

IJN DD isn't food anymore. Akizuki has almost gearing ROF with Khaba guns layout.. One problem is the HE can't pen DD hulls kek, but AP....

 

Also triple zao will only invisifire BB from map edge while his DD get slaughtered with no support lol.
