I currently have 3 lines ready to up-tier, Fletcher, Kagero, or Friedrich Der Grobe. I only have enough credits for 1 of them. Should I get a tier 9 ship?

 

I prefer DD over BB.

I generally don't aim well with USN DD guns.

The Kagero doesn't entice to me atm.

 

Would I find the FDG more exciting than the Bismarck?

Should I grind the Udaloi which I suspect I would enjoy more than all the options above. (138k exp to go)

Should I even get a T9?. Perhaps I should upgrade some of the other lines which I'm only at T6 atm?

Fletcher is a really good tier 9 DD if you have a 15pt commander you cant go wrong with it. But life for tier 9 DDs are not as good as they use to be with ships now having radar. BBs have improved a lot with better dispersion at most tiers. 

I would go with the fletcher myself.

It is tempting. I especially like the fact that MM can only match 1 tier higher at most. I do have 15pt captain. I would love to have reasonable AA and 5 turrets. The Fletcher does seem to be a well rounded boat as far as I can tell.

Get Fletcher, best ship of the class in her tier. If you enjoy DDs, you'll enjoy Fletcher

Whatever ship line you're comfortable with.

How about this. Get good with USN DD gun arcs, then get the Fletcher.

 

Alternatively, you could grind for the Udaloi and join me. :P

Strange thing was I used to be. Then I lost the knack of leading them.

My opinion is still accurate.

 

Just pick the ship line you enjoy using the most.

The arcs are not as bad as it seems, especially at close range (this ship is only 300m less stealthy than a Kagero, has more health, speed and better guns. It is almost impossible for the poor sucker to even react in the time it takes for you to cover the 300m difference in detection ranges, and at 5.5km I do not forsee the guns missing much). Also, Fletcher's torps are excellet <end rant of a salty Kagero dirver>.

USN DD's are my favourite DD's but i'm having more fun with the Udaloi atm,

 

Fletcher would be the safe choice but, easier transition and grind for upgrades.

Gun aim shouldn't be a big issue, i only really use them for knife fights with DD's and peppering BB's if i can't get a good torpedo angle on them.
