Despoyers are slated to serve a number of roles in the game. Whether seeking out enemy ships to spot for the big-guns, launching torpedo volleys on enemy ships, or providing additional anti-aircraft cover for friendly vessels, the despoyer should prove to be a challenging ship to play. Despoyers fall under two main lines, Torpedo Focus and AA Focus (with Dual Purpose Guns).
Im sorry if this is asked before but will despoyer attains be able to conpol both torpedoes and th main deck gun or just torpedoes
DDs will be able to use guns AND torpedoes.
Will the Fantasque class be considered despoyers or cruisers?
Speaking about DD leaders (or big DDs) - some of them may be classified as DDs, some - as CLs. As for that certain ship: I dont know. French Navy is currently very far away. -
Whats the largest armanent we will see on a despoyer besides torps?
150mm on German DDs.
It seems as though the Japanese despoyer Shimakaze might be too powerful and fast of a ship to be included in WoWs. Can it be confirmed whether or not Shimakazewill be able to be included in WoWs?
According to plans, Shimakaze will be Tier X IJN DD.
Is there any chance of the Canadian St. Laurent-class despoyer making it in this game?
Cant say anything about it now.
Can you tell us about the survivability for Despoyers in your tests so far?
Despoyers in our test is quite playable. They often sink capital ships - if dont catch full salvo from battleships or cruisers. If despoyer came close to the capital ship - big guy will feel very bad.
Will the Wickes class despoyer be in the game and if so will it be available at launch?
Wicks, of course, an american ship. But in this moment it is only in the British pee (as premium ship).
Which ship have you had the most fun playing with so far?
For me - its Kagerō Class despoyer.
Also thanks for clearing up the misunderstanding about the wickes class despoyers. I had suspected it might be a premium ship in the British navy, as the specifically named vessel HMS Campbeltown, probably the most famous Wickes class ship. Can you confirm if it will be the HMS Campbeltown or will it not be specifically named?
No, it will not be specifically named. But player will can to name ship himself. I think, "HMS Campbeltown" will be in the list of Wickes DD-class names
Will there be any despoyers at all that would have spotter planes within the launch tech pees? A yes/no would be enough.
No. Fletcher with "Kingfisher" will be a premium ship.
Is the Shiratsuyu Class despoyer currently a part of the IJN pee?
It is preset of Hatsuharu Class for now.
