ikr.

in a scenario game and a leander next to me was about half a second ahead in his firing cycle. each time my shells must have been within about 50mtrs as i had about 6 kills robbed.

Got Vampire last night. The history of this ship and the “scrap iron flotilla” means this ship is close to every Australian’s heart, ie take an old tin-can, fix it up with wire, and then make Jerry’s life hard!  Definitely a collector's item and a good looking ship, regardless of its qualities in the game.

As the missions can be done in co-op and scenarios this time, I saved my money. Not hard to do the “win 7  battles” and “destroy 20 ships” in co-op. 25k XP and 750k damage is easy in scenario.

Yeah, speed, manoeuvrability and stealth – all fairly underwhelming. Got to keep one eye on the map at all times when you drive Vampire.

I figured Vampire’s role would be “gunboat” and distributed the 6 captain skill points accordingly. Played only a few games, but found the guns are fairly ineffective against cruisers/BB’s, also not a good “fire starter”. I guess “destroyer hunter” describes Vampire’s role best.

In one game with a CV, Vampire’s AA started hammering away and to my surprise, it shot down a plane! Not that common you win “shot down plane” ribbon with a T3 DD.

There are similarities with Clemson, in the good and the bad department. Clemson is the better ship, IMO, but Clemson is T4, so I guess Clemson should be better. I feel I hit less with Vampire’s guns, compared to Clemson. Especially wiggling DD’s dodged a lot of my shells. Maybe it was getting a bit late for me, haha.

Your first mistake is comparing any DD with Clemson. Only thing that will probably beat a Clemson in her range is a Gremyachy and that's the most op tier 5 DD. Vampire is a fine tier 3 DD for me.

I guess that was a reply to my post? Whatever you consider a mistake or not, when I played it, this was my impression. I'm not bringing tier in at all, it's the general way I felt the ships can be played well.

Of course you are free to disagree, or call that a mistake. People cannot agree all the time.

so would be handy if we could get the flag as well.

You can get the bundle after getting the ship from mission, the duplicate ship would be compensated for with doubloons. (If you finish the mission with Vampire in port, you will only get credits compensation)
