I got late into Senjougahara game but even without stealth fire, she does fine.

Though she eats smoking RN CLs for food. Full ninja Senjougahara FTW. Ninja in close and turn around and kite away while shooting. That might be the new Senjougahara tactic.

Though could someone enlighten me why they'd abandon Senjougahara just because she cannot ninja fire?

Zao players now rarely to see since stealth firing benn removed 

my Zao build full AA (looks like useless but I have pointless for Zao for now) and shellbeat/torpedobeat rubber 3sec to drift

Mogami since BFT and AFT nerfed to 139mm and everyone used 203mm and someone used 155mm 

Ibuki I don't know just like Mogami 2.0

IFHE released on 0.6.0 Mogami players came back and use 155mm+IFHE aww i'm fine!(FIRE!!!)

i stop playing IJN cruiser already because no point to get money or waiting new rech tree on IJN

instead of zao,

IMO Akizuki is the one that near extinct.

 

i rarely see her in match nowadays.

Radar + torp wall + Harekaze fever everywhere kill off her potential :Smile_trollface:, harekaze with 6x 100mm is a more versatile Akizuki after all

barely see Akizuki (the last 2 got torped by me in Kagerou)

also the fact that she needs more Captain point than the other to have great performance also contribute to it

Doesn't help that the line ends with her too.

Akizuki is the strongest T8 dd if you know what your doing imo but it's also harder for the average player to do well in.

Really? Some how Akizuki always surprises people by being a decent gun boat. The reload thing also helps

As long as enemy BBs arent looking at you. I have already murdered countless Akizukis with BBs. Even at 17km. Cause they don't know what they are doing.

Akizuki has gearing firepower at T8 and the torp consumable gives it the torp power of a Kagero but it's large and sluggish so you have to know what your doing to do well in it.

Just IFHE is enough, the above poster already mentioned how much it needs high level captains.
