  1. So if I do well in a DD it means either the CV is noob or they decide to let me live for some strange reason. Ok... The enemy CV obviously isn't a noob, so I guess he was in a rather merciful mood that match. Read the first post in this thread. Also watch this guy:

    Another teaser, IJN DD - NOT with 100 mm

    Yup, I noted as much in an earlier post. Gameplay-wise though Shiratsuyu sticks out like a sore-thumb in the alternative branch. It would have been much better if WG had buffed her gun performance or something so as to ease players into Akizuki and beyond. I think you are confusing Shiratsuyu with Hatsuharu - Hatsuharu is the one that gets 2x2 guns on hull B. Unless you are suggesting Shiratsuyu gets the same treatment in return for buffed guns, which I don't mind. Though I would rather Shiratsuyu keeps the current layout but get a buffed turret traverse and a slight reload buff instead. Shiratsuyu's guns are of similar performance to the Akatsuki, but their horrible layout and one less barrel means the latter is far better when it comes to gun duels.

    so which commander are you ... ?

    I got Kaga. Should I get Kaga to put Kaga on my Kaga?

    There is more to a torp boat than just the number of torps mate. I consider Shiratsuyu more of a torp boat than Akatsuki as Shiratsuyu has extremely good concealment to get into positions to maximise those torps. And unlike Akatsuki, she can't really rely on her guns should things go south. Don't forget Shiratsuyu can also pick TRB in lieu of smoke, so she can dump 16 fish into the water if she needs to. Though that being said I prefer Akatsuki's 3x3 torp setup over Shiratsuyu's.

    It should be "Gale" if it follows the kanji of the IJA Ki-84 plane of the same name. And I am liking the look of the guns too. Hoping she is not a Steel ship so I can try her out. Oh and here's a cookie. And no it is not a coin. It is just a cookie that looks like a coin. I always thought the Akatsuki and Shiratsuyu should have swapped places. I know their current position makes more sense from a historical design perspective, but from a gameplay perspective Shiratsuyu should be in the torpedo branch. Shiratsuyu is a torpedo boat with very good concealment, while Akatsuki is more of a hybrid with pretty decent guns.

    Well to be fair, the Harugumo was providing AA escort to the Yammy which had pushed into the cap. There was also a Minotaur behind them iirc. So the Harugumo could have been "kill stealing" the enemy planes. Hard to tell as I was on the other side of the map at that time.

    So many people keep saying this, but if they bothered to play CVs they will know this isn't true.

    Again, how many of those planes were fighters? You can't just look at total planes shot down and assume they are all strike craft. I keep on seeing CV haters make this mistake. You are only saying that because you don't play CVs. Why don't you try playing CVs yourself and see if you can attack constantly without any disregard for plane losses. I am very sure you will be deplaned within 10 minutes. Seriously try playing the other classes more, especially CVs. There is no better way to learn how to counter CVs than to experience their weaknesses first hand. And DDs can fire infinite torpedoes in game while IRL they had no reloads, unless they were an IJN DD, in which case they may have just one. Atlantas and Akizukis can fire several hundred or even a thousand main battery rounds in a good game, while it is unlikely they could carry that many shells IRL. DDs are expected to stand 1-1 against other ships in game, which is the opposite of real life. WoWs is a game. So bringing in real life arguments is pointless. And I remember a few of them were CV haters as well. Makes a lot of sense that their bigotry will show up in game too. Precisely. CVs excel in picking off stragglers and low hp ships. But there is little a CV can do to stop a coordinated push. Force the enemy to sacrifice planes and they won't be able to field full squadrons. And less than full squadrons means a higher likelihood of planes getting shot down. It becomes a death spiral for CVs. This death spiral is why plane conservation is important. Just had a game where this happened to the enemy CV. We lost our CV early because the enemy Grozovoi managed to slip through our lines and kill him before our Cleveland could help. But because the rest of our team were had aggressively pushed the caps and had a point and cap lead, the enemy CV was forced to suicide his planes into powerful AA in a desperate attempt to make something happen. And when the endgame came, he didn't have enough rocket planes to form full squadrons, which allowed my team's Khaba to shoot them down with ease.

    Interesting... The guns and radar look a bit more modern than the usual IJN DD ones. Looks like some theoretical post-war ship.

    Precisely. That's why I find it strange that he is so upset about playing the decoy. Considering that was probably one of the factors that contributed to his team's victory. It is the same as the iChase vid. One would think they have never played the role of a tank in an mmo or moba before. And yes, DDs have to be more team-oriented now. Last time they only cared about the team when they were up against a radar cruiser or another DD that they couldn't gun down. Now they are more in line with the other classes, and that is a good thing.

    Yeah the rework was way too rushed. I think WG was trying to stick to their roadplan a bit too much. It was very clear they were trying to rush out the rework in time for the New Year. Also I remember just about everybody was cheering the rework and saying it couldn't come soon enough. A lot of it probably came from CV haters who were just happy to see CVs nerfed in some form or other. Problem is WG saw those people as rework supporters. Meanwhile those of us foresaw the problems with the rework were either shouted down or ignored by those saying that the rework can't be worse than RTS. Which is why I find it weird that people are saying they prefer dealing with RTS CVs. Make up your mind.

    Here ya go. A Kraken in my Harekaze from today. Everyone did their part and were not afraid of contesting the caps. Teamwork ftw.

    Now we are getting somewhere. Still though, how many of those planes were fighters? And if the CVs were constantly attacking for 10 minutes, it means the rest of your team had 10 minutes with 0 CV harassment. You were taking 2 ships out of the battle for the price of one. It is like a kiting ship drawing 2-3 enemy ships away from the battle. That is a situation you should be happy to make, so I don't see what you are upset about. It looks that by focusing on you, the CVs were unable to apply their influence anywhere on the map, which is a big deal because you were nullifying a CV's strength. And the results showed - the enemy CVs lost the battle. Also I find it strange that you keep harping about how the match is decided on which team got the better CV player, but when looking at the base xp your team's CVs didn't contribute to the match as much as they could have. And if you look up the CV players' stats, the one with the highest winrate was actually on the losing team. It is almost as though CV skill no longer impacts the match as much as they used to...

    For those looking to improve their DD play in this CV meta, I suggest keeping an eye on Destroyer KuroshioKai on Youtube. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-CVV_QxU4CesZL5pvdJw4A/videos He plays mostly DDs and even runs TRB, the madman. It is NA server, but his tips are still useful.
