Are Cruisers the new DD's?

I dunno, maybe it's just my luck.

I took my Baltimore out for a spin today. The first 5 matches were Tears of the Desert and Ocean.

Nothing else. 

The two maps that hate Cruiser's the most.

Yes, with DD players being busy with their 90k torp damage tasks, cruisers are the best DDs.

i did several times in Atago or Mogami

well, not only our DD sometimes didn't have enough firepower to win in knife fight, it become a necessity when you see our team seems 1 DD short

DDS are specifically meant to go under BBS and bang them up.
CLS/CAS are specifically meant to go under DDS and counter the banging...
BBS are ment to look good and Bang everything up!:)
CVs are meant to overlook all the banging!:)

That’s all very logical, however humans are not, especially team-wise.

Also generally with humans it’s pick on the weakest.

When someone out of position everybody shoots.

And everyone thinks like George S. Patton, "let the other [player] die for his country"... first!   :Smile_honoring:

 

And I agree OP, radars these days have equalized the concealment cap zone between cruisers and destroyers, turning cruiser into capping destroyers. Any cruiser that can use islands as shields and get into the cap will murder destroyers, this part of the game is unbalanced.

I thought my Mino WAS a DD?

It has little guns, it can move fast from stop, it has torps that go 10km, it has no armour and seems to be harder to hit then the DD's who get nuked with AP from BB's at 20km, ALL THE TIME, I have a British heal, I laugh at citadel hits, that don't kill me outright :)

PLUS if you get caught out of position in the open its like, godess bless me here I lay type of thing, just like a DD.

So YES cruiser are DD's at least since DD's got beaten bloody with the nerf bat due to the whiner BB players who can't play :) Yes I mean you who are reading this :)

Ah well, it took me since it was released, but I have saved enough Free XP that I now have a Missouri. Now I too can be the bane of CA's and DD's.

 

Still, I know when I'm in a DD, I love Tears of the Cruiser. You have islands to go hide behind to let the heat die down and to reposition. You have lots of room to play with and your Torps fill the B cap, just like the rest of the DD's, resulting in a Cap zone that no BB in their right mind wants to go near for the first half of the game.

When I'm in a BB, I enjoy Ocean and Tears. 

 

It's just the Cruiser's that the map hates. Really hates. Really Really hates. Unless you are a British CL, in which case, you get torped or still pounded in smoke because people know how to shoot into smoke. Like Flamu or someone put out a specific vid on how to do that.
