I love that they do this to me when:

I'm broke, and

I'm in the middle of redoing my YT channel art and intro and exporting a new video...

Last night and today are already completely gone and my channel art needs the update to bring it in line with the intro...

I should still be able to get all the free ones, I'll just have to push through over the next 12 days, the missus is going to be real impressed...

A Kongo is a Kongo irrespective of fancy paint jobs. It is still a T5 BB. Kongos seem to either be liked or hated by players with few taking up the middle ground

I like. I like a lot.

And its more than just a paint job. I mean just look at these details. Nothing quite announces "sealclubber" like neon purple on gunmetal. :fish_cute_2:

P.S.

1. To imagine Kongo, take a Furutaka, remove torps, add armor and an extra turret, upgrade guns from 203mm to 356mm. If that seems utterly terrifying, guess what? It is.

2. The anime voiceover is pretty fun. Since it applies to all the messages not just your ship, with games with plenty of chatter the effect is surprisingly immersive. If you don't understand Japanese, you can always see the chat window for subtitles. 🙂

Let's talk builds for a minute.

The WoWS wiki entry for Kongo feels out of date, at any rate it's not especially useful in my opinion.

My sealclubber meme build goes like this:

Captain skills (first 10): PT/EM/Vig/FP 

Captain skills (optional): PM/EL/AR/SI ... AFT?

Modules: Aux armaments mod 1, DCS mod 1, AA mod 1

Low tier maps are small, you are playing aggressively. This means you will have to fend off planes, and you will have to fend off DDs. You don't need more gun accuracy - closing the distance gives you gun accuracy - what you want is general survivability and awarness. Vigilence means more time to dodge. Aux mod 1 keeps your AA mounts alive, and AA mod 1 doubles your flack bursts from 2 to 4. DCS mod 1 and FP keeps the HE spam under control. PT gives you just that little extra situational information.

Last I checked there was no Wave Cannon installed, unfortunately.

That would be so fun. A broken gimmick for a broken game. In fact it would bring back the word FUN to "FUN AND ENGAGING".

as long as she not be up-tiered, she is very solid tier 5 BB

and remember, at first ARP ship is inferior to standard kongo since they can't mount any camo and their colorful camo provide no benefit.

now that they become premium, their camo provide all the benefit of any premium ship made them stronger than my standard kongo with only normal camo.
