So, uh, RIP dds, mostly. Thinking of changing my Shima build. 
Current: standard torp dd build: PT, LS, SE, TAE, CE, RDL +1pt upgrades: MBM1, PM1, ASM1, PM2, CSM1, TTM1

M idea for my aa shima: PT, LS, EM, SE, BFT, CE, upgrades: MBM1, PM1, AGM1, PM2, CSM1, TTM1

I guess it basically becomes a hybrid gun/torp shima. Not sure if this is the right build to go for. It might even be a good idea to just not change it at all.

With 2CVs joining the game certain times, it is very difficult for a Shimakaze to fight of both the Aircraft and the fire from enemy Ships.

dont even bother. even AA gearing struggle against CV with DFAA. even des moines with DFAA can be dropped.

dont cap on earlier stage of game, stay near any AA cruiser. pay attention to CV planes. once they stop dropping bb, maybe its the time to cap.

back when CV rework just came out, I use to try shimakaze full AA build.

and I mean 'full' AA build.

I throw away skill.  CE, ROF, SE, TAE for AFT, BFT, MA

I throw away concealment and torpedo upgrade for AA oriented...

running around with 20 km torp and tedious 120 sec reload turn AA on whole match but look who shot down plane the most...

but I dare say that's not work anymore

back when I try this many CV capt. don't know how to dodge AA flack and head straight in. hell, my teammate CA don't know how to utilize AA sector yet.

but nowadays... it just not work

Like others have said, probably not worth it.

The only DD I know of that does OK against CV's now is the groz.

I even got dropped hard in wooster with DfAA running lol

You know even heavy AA build CL and CA find it hard to actually repel aerial attacks, its simply not efficient to try AA build on poor AA platform like Shima
