Im good with torps so guns don't really mean much to me. So yea- KTKM is a good ship for me. It rekts the tunnel visioned players.

 

Not if they can shoot you first before reaching 10 km (surface detectability range: 11.3 km)

Use Islands, wait till they are distracted or just mingle with BBs or other CAs until you get in range to let rip. Let the team "escort" you in.  No point rushing into the fray. Play it cool like a short range DD, minus the detect-ability bonus, of course.

Some player are Navy Field player, and they knew that once there is a Kitakami name in the screen, it will become primary target

While I agree, some players are, but...considering the quality of players around, the chances are slim. Especially when if they are engaged in a duel (bino view) and they wont really pay attention to what is going on around them, much less the ship types in play, especially at a distance.

Not really, both still can be taken down quite easily

The Torpedoes are easy to detect

DD guns are weak against more armoured target

Very unamoured against any naval gun

Turning speed not even better than some USN BB

Torpedoes can be detected even in the smoke (while DD itself can't be?)

There is no Overheat Ability for them (Navy field)

One of my everlasting frustrations is sinking BBs in my IJN destroyers with a sweet sweet spread of torps.

 

One of my everlasting frustrations is being hounded by US DDs who can throw out gun rounds like confetti at a parade and strip my ships HP in no time while I peck away with my own slower and feebler guns at them to no avail.

I am a newbie of WOWS, and i like playing destroyers very much

Therefore, i want to know that Japan or USA Destroyers have a better performance??

 

This will really depend on the play style you develop during your leveling. Try them both. See which ones fit your way of playing. However, do not overlook the Russian DDs either. Though they have short ranged torpedoes in the lower tiers, their guns are better than the US. So keep that in mind.

 

How about cruies??

Which countries is better?

 

 

Again, like the DDs, depends on your play style. Lower tiers you'll find the US cruisers a bit better than the Japanese cruisers concerning their main guns. Now, German cruisers in the mid-tiers are pretty strong, especially at long ranges and can wreck US and Japanese cruisers because they have such long range capabilities which carries on to the higher tiers. One draw back is these ships are lacking in armor a bit. What it ultimately comes down to is what will fit your play style and how well you will do and excel in.

6 month old thread revived from the depths.......

 

Gah...you're right. I didn't even read when it was originally posted. Someone necro'd this one. Yuk! I need to take another bath. I don't like playing with dead things. LOL :)
