Put simply if the Kagero get no preferential MM and is constantly up against tier X ships it needs to be buffed, more speed and better camo rating

Kagero already has the second best(?) concealment at that tier, 5.4km, after Assassio’s 5.3km.

As far as I remember, they have same concealment.

5.4km is... Godlike concealment tbh.

That is one ship I have no concerns about being in a TX battle.

The concealment is fabulous, and goes to insane with RPF.

What sort of build are you running?

You are correct, I thought they had made Assassio sneakier than Kagero for the sake of difference... but I’ve never played it, just remembering something incorrectly from a video.

But you are right, 5.4 concealment is godlike, and with good positioning and map awareness you can use it to negate its lack of speed. Even T10s will fear her.

But you need to remain undetected, as she cannot run or fight enemy gunboats, so trying to contest caps in early game may not be recommended. Use your concealment to outspot enemy DDs for your cruisers to light up. And your torps to keep enemy cruisers and BBs at bay. Be aware of which ships have radar, and keep your distance of them and any spot they may hide. This is probably the bigger issue in the current meta. The other being that Kagero cannot contest caps without support... or stupid enemies getting hit by torps while hiding in their own smoke.

That is a bottomless barrel.
