What exactly is the point of the new DD's? ... what do they bring to the game that we didn't already have? ... why add more ships to a full tech tree when so many other trees are still missing ships?

 

Honestly I just don't get it ... surely the time spent on them would have been better spent giving us RN BB's,CV's or DD's or Russian BB's... or practically anything else.

If you asked me it is an excuse to bring Kagero down to tier 8 so that it could be used in the Haifuri collab. It's even funnier when you realize that the tier 7 gunboat has better torpedo potential than the equal-tier torpedoboat

Pretty sure its faster to add in 4 "new" DDs where the majority of the models (turrets, torp launchers e.t.c) are already in game than it is to make a new line from scratch.

 

Its content anyway to hold us over till whatever new line they decide to release next.

I think you maybe didn't see number of their tube.

 

Tier 7

[Gunboat]         Shiratsuyu has 2 x 4 Tube with 101s reload  (Total of 8)

[Torpedoboat]   Akatsuki    has 3 x 3 Tube with   76s reload  (Total of 9)

*torpedo has same characteristic (Damage, Speed, Range)

shiratsuyu can make a torp wall out of 16 torps and make BBs pay for it

Because priorities. When the game is filled with 80℅ 'ship'lovers which WG already acknowledge, you'll know which line that should be made to milk them :D

But Shiratsuyu has a dedicated slot for TRB.

 

Thanks for remain me about TRB.

I think, it's only for Tier 8+ and didn't check it.

 

but I prefer Akatsuki more than Shiratsuyu in torp battle because 76sec reload

It's different form TRB only 46s/39s [with skill] and has 3 launcher instead of 2 (make more area denied and more delay torp strategies).

Furthermore Akatsuki still has smoke to make troll to some CA (with didn't has radar) and BB or protect friend.
