First game on the Tears of the Desert map in my new Kagero, and it was a decent game even if most of my points came from capturing and defense rather than sinking ships. The Kagero is a capture and harass ship. Use her to encourage the opposition to go where you want them to, and not where you don't. Don't count on her to carry the battle. However, that does not mean you should take her lightly. Her eight fast torpedoes have more than enough punch to sink any ship including the Yamato.
