I basically started this game out after looking how beautiful Yamato is. well I did get a Musashi already and made a rant in my first post :P now im getting really used to it. So one way or the other I played WoWs for 2 years now. back then I didnt have anything noteworthy but still remember how OP Minekaze was at tier 5. And how bad Mutsuki was at tier 6. which is now downgraded to being both tier 5 and Minekaze getting nerfed. But seriously its still OP as hell dang. And I mean its good! I use it to release stress and just literally rekt all the straight full speed ahead no manueaver battleships. Minekaze has 5.4 spotting range with full camo and skills + 41Knts of speed with speed flag. Its crazy! torpedoes reload in 40 sec and you can literally spam them geez. Minekaze is the most fun IJN DD I've played so far. (I have until Kagero unlocked and Hatsuharu on the second tree.) Ive never played Akizuki but I'm planning to get it sometime soon. Minekaze is exactly what you would expect in a japanese DD. Bad guns slow turret traverse, fast speed, super good concealment. And lastly which is the most important a Torpedo spamming scrub like I am :D just fantastic ship love it. Its basically a Kamikaze on the main tree. If you havent you should try this hell of a fun ship. its just pure amazing.

Kamikaze R is the very definition of OP ... I love mine.

Every now and then you can use kamikaze R for seal clubbing at t5 to release some frustrations.

P.S. put your 19 pts shima captain on it....super OP

Hmmm, Minekaze OP?

Maybe your playstyle and Minekaze are a very good match, so in your hands, she looks OP, I don’t think she is.

Her strengths are in speed, manoeuvrability and concealment. And of course, fast torpedo reload.

Besides that, she has low health, weak armour, fragile modules and as you point out, bad guns. Torpedoes go 57 knots, not super-fast. Minekaze will do her damage with her torpedos, so she needs a fast reload.

In a way, you could call Minekaze a one-trick pony, with her fast re-loading torpedos. She needs a good stealth firing window because when spotted, it is quickly shredded.

I don’t have the Kamikaze/R, but I have learnt to respect her. When there is a Kamikaze, she will make her impact on the battle, even if not top tier. In my experience, that’s something you cannot say of most battles where a Minekaze is part of the line-up.

Anyway, happy to see there is one player who truly loves and appreciates the Minekaze.

And the kamikaze R was obtainable during the clash of the seas event thingy a while back I believe.
you had to earn a bunch of coins but it was doable
