I dont really think IJN ship are invincible but they are a fun line to play especially slinging HE to annoy people

Mogami 155mm is a great example :P

IJN is the best in terms of self operation aka solo.

They dont require support and fill a combat position by themselves due to IJN insistence on their ships to be solo capable against US task force with kiting and ambushing.

If you play random alone alot they are almost perfect as you almost always dont need anyone else to help you and that is a big plus. Zao in particular troll AP to no end with its armor layout.

Their biggest weakness is that they dont offer team utility support ( lone wolf).This isnt really a weakness in ASIA server however as players tend to mind their business than mind their team efforts

People were just trolling in those polls. Only very few IJN surface ships are even worth mentioning. Kamikaze, Shiratsuyu, Akizuki, Yugumo, Zao, Fuso, Amagi. That's all.

They aren't in my opinion, they just have quite a few strong points:

- Great guns, accurate with great HE and AP

- Great Torpedoes

- Good HP

- Good stealth for size

 

What they suffer from:

- Poor refire rate

- Mediocre AA

- No Radar (Radar is a big thing in higher tiers).

 

Back near release, IJN Cruisers were arguably better than their USN counterparts after tier 6, as more Cruiser lines were released, at each tier they suddenly had strong competitors and with the advent of Radar, they have dipped in strength in the tiers they used to be king.

 

They are still good, IMO there are just better ones in each tier 7-10 and IJN have never really been the best below that IMO.

 

IMO the three standouts are:

- Tier 7 Myoko

- Tier 8 Atago (premium)

- Tier 10 Zao

But these three definitely aren't 'best in tier' however they are still strong ships.

-shell are not curve

-AP penetration is really good (not as good as DM)

-stealth <<< i reskill to AA boat already (for what i dunno since stealth firing been removed kek)

-30+100mm makes her op

-ultimate rubber shift time down to 3sec

cons

-lowest reload time same French CA (except Aoba is 10sec)

-what is AA? (T8 and T10 are ok)

-what is HP (T9-10)

-cannot camp behind island 

-angle torpedo are bad

-low HP in high tier

-no radar same VMF or USS, hydro not far as KM, no engine boooost as French, no smoke as RN for pew pew pew in smoke

myoko mogami (was and now with 155mm) and zao

 

- Zao have 12 guns, the rest have less than that

- Accuracy is not the best, Destroyer beat it

- AP penetration's good, Normalization? not so much

- Mogami have problem with Uptier battle (armor? repair? what's dat?)

- Shorter range compare to other Cruisers

- Couldnt fire their Torp Frontally except Furutaka (and Atago, which is Premium Cruiser)

- Mogami and Ibuki have Longer Reload than Myokou, which is tier 7 despite using the Same Shells

they're quite strong once you've mastered kiting properly.

(and becoming immune to teammates calling you coward for doing it)

they not 'invincible' they only good at become 'invisible' since they concealment is pretty good

stop firing for 20 sec and they'll disappear into thin air...

 

IMO, IJNCA good point are... big gun, high fire, good conceal, decent torpedo.
