Can add me if you like, got at least one BB of every tier, mostly lower tier with cruisers/DDs though I have an Atago for dank credits.

Awesome thx.

I love how WOWS Prems arent shit. But they still are made so guys can kill newbs in them.

WOT could learn something from it. Not issuing shit like T34`s and other garbage.

Remember when tier 8 was flooded with the Kitikami, when it was introduced? That ship was pretty terrible, and only served greifing purposes.

I still have nightmares about the Kitikami spam.

I'd offer my ships, but HT politely told me I was not up to snuff when I once asked him to division.  No shade from me, but you should be better than my middling stats to get in a Div with HT.

Not sure if you are referring to me, but if I pull up my Warships Today sig, as HT has, it turns out I play at a similar level to him. Because I play a large amount of cruisers, my damage and xp look low, but when put into perspective, it changes a lot. I should probably use that as my sig, to look pretty.

Nothing like that, How Terrible and I chatted one night and he was divisioning with his Relic buddies, so he wasn't available.  I didn't mean anything by it, just that he probably expects a player to be on or near his level to accept requests.

I have no problem with divisioning with people whose stats are below mine. What really matters is they people wish to improve. In fact right now I am massacring my stats in an attempt to learn how to play IJN destroyers.

Mesrith seems to be able to maintain his performance and play DD's capably, I wouldn't mind watching some replays from him if he had them laying around somewhere.

That's not a bad idea. @Mesrith, any way you could toss up a few decent destroyer replays either as youtube vids, or just as the replay files?

There's a Mahan and a Fletcher game that were converted to video on WoWReplays.com, but no IJN destroyer replays that would still be watchable.  The only one I have left is Shima, but I may upload a few replays as I play it more.

If I had to give a blanket set of tips it would be to not shy away from guns with destroyers, even IJN ones.  Torpedoes will always be a bit of a dice roll even for the best players; using guns gives you your baseline damage, secures kills, and lets you build on that with whatever torpedo damage you get.  When I started playing my Shima after the 5.5 changes, I got rid of Torp Accel and picked up BFT and AFT so that the guns would be respectable (9.4km invisifire).  The HE hits hard and the fire chance is high, but you have to play smart since there's no room for the extra HP from Survival Expert and you're fragile as it is.

Which torps do you run on the Shima?

Mod 3 (12km) without Torp Accel.  The longer range ones are garbage (too slow, ridiculously high detection range), and anything shorter than 12km is a gamble.  It's not even a problem of getting within launch range; it's the fact that everybody is always running away in a tier 10 game, and trying to hit a fleeing target with a range shorter than 12km is awful.  I don't care how fast the F3 Zao torps are, if a ship is running from you, you're not going to hit it unless you push close enough to get spotted.  The 12km range also syncs well with gun usage.

I'm not sure I'm a great authority on IJN destroyers but I'm doing alright.  I'm currently trying to get a couple of my other 10s to 100 games (plan on doing a 100 game review for all of them), and I'll focus on Shima a bit more down the road, hopefully improving on it with some focused attention.

I'm up for platooning if you'd like. I have pretty much the same schedule you mentioned, week day evenings and some on weekends. I've been ~95% solo because all my WOT friends are stupid and don't want to switch so friends to pad win% with would be lovely.
