Shiratsuyu appreciaton thread

Recommended Posts

Played ten games stock with a stupid gunboat setup. 70k average, 8 wins and much hilarity. It's actually a really good gunboat because of the flat arcs and high alpha. Oh and it has some torps.

Fun/10 would play again.

Revisit it.  It's a fun boat.  5.8 detection and 20 torps with the boost.  Amazing at anti-smoke operations.  And good at chashing down DD's because of your 3 front facing guns

Because of the quality of the Premium ships available in WoWs, I have no call to keep regular ships in a line and normally don't.  The first exception was the Bismarck, because of it's very useful combination of secondary guns and hydro.  The second and third were the  Shiratsuyu and the Akizuki.  While the Tirpitz secondary buff made the Bismarck less of a requirement to keep unless tier 8 competitive CW becomes a thing - the Shiratsuyu is unique at tier 7, there are no premium ships that can do what it does at that tier.  The Akizuki is just an oddball fun ship, but it is not as exceptional at tier 8 as the Shiratsuyu is at tier 7.

Shiratsuyu is prolly the best ship at tier VII currently for me. I had a string of totally awesome games but the very moment I tried to use her for grinding out Bismarck mission luck gave me 4 games in a row with utter and total fail teams...

Last game our tier VII USN CV (Ranger/Indi? confuse these two constantly) send all his planes to the border of the map to snipe the enemy Hiryu...  in an AS setup... I mean, how stupid can you be? Meanwhile the Hiryu made it his utmost priority to keep me spotted, not much you can do in such a game.
