Player Opinion

Performance

Öland is the Tier VIII Tech Tree ship of the Pan-European destroyer branch in World of Warships,

Out of the box Öland seems like an underarmed ship. Her main battery count is the lowest of any Tier VIII destroyer (on par with Ognevoi and six torpedo tubes in total makes her the undisputed lowest in that regard. However, Öland has the means to make up for the deficient numbers. For one, her main battery offers a high rate of fire with each gun firing 24 rounds per minute, before upgrades are being considered. This gives Öland a competitve dpm compared to her peers. What remains lackluster however is the low main battery range, although this could be compensated for using the captain skill Advanced Firing Training.

The torpedo armament is not only the lowest in tube count, but also the lowest in Alpha strike, with every torpedo hitting for just a little over 10,000 damage. This rules out the usage of these in the hopes of devstriking larger targets unless a lucky magazine detonation saves the day. What the torpedoes lack in hitting power they do make up for in speed and range. A long range of 12km and 76kn speed make these very comfortable to use, although the torpedo reload in comparison to the torpedo count is rather long.

In regards to her survivability Öland has many hurdles to overcome. Her hitpool is the lowest of any Tier VIII destroyer and what makes matters very complicated is the lack of the Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable, making ever single mistake very costly. Thankfully, Öland comes equipped with the Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) consumable to restore some lost hitpoints, but this tool can not help Öland when she got caught out in an unfortunate location.

High continuous AA values as well as access to the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable with no trade offs mean that Öland can be a costly target to strike for an aircraft carrier. Although especially Tier X carriers such as Midway will be able to overcome Öland's defenses and hit her hard, which given her low hitpool will make every bomb, rocket or torpedo hit a painful loss.

Öland's playstyle depends a lot on opportunities and team support. She can engage destroyers but it can cost her dearly, and going anywhere without an exit route is an invitation for the enemy to send Öland back to port. Caps can be contested, but the lack of smoke should be compensated for by always keeping the situation in check, and disengaging as soon as the situation goes out of control.

Pros:

  • Very good main battery rate of fire
  • Very fast torpedoes with very good range and a fairly quick reload
  • Excellent AA suite as well as access to the Defensive AA Fire (While active, the damage per second of large caliber anti-aircraft guns is increased.) consumable
  • Decent concealment
  • Access to the Repair Party (While active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second.) consumable

Cons:

  • Lacks the Smoke Generator (While active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates.) consumable
  • Ship speed is lacking for a destroyer
  • Lowest torpedo alpha damage for a Tier 8 destroyer
  • Very low hitpoint pool
  • Short main battery range

Research

Availability of researchable upgrades for Öland is as follows:

  • Hull: Upgrade to Hull (B) for an increase in hitpoints, AA and maneuverability. Research of this module unlocks progression to Östergötland.
  • Gun Fire Control System: Upgrade to SUO Mk8 Mod 2 for an extra 10% range on the main battery.
Upgrading to the (B) Hull should be priority, as Öland's low hitpool should take any improvement it can get.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Öland are as follows:

If the player has one available, swapping in Engine Room Protection (Reduces the risk of incapacitation, and accelerates repairs of the engine and steering gears.: -20% to the risk of incapacitation. / -20% to repair time.) for Engine Boost Modification 1 (Increases the action time of the Engine Boost consumable.: +50% action time.) is recommended.

Commander Skills

Consumables

Öland equips the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 1 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce detectibility range.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Öland with Type 18 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.
