DD's are now obsolete in CV matches if they get spotted. More and more games DD's are off doing their own thing and not participating.

planes cannot oneshot DDs unless their RNG is VERY good or if the DD is a idiot and somehow managed to eat full torps, and even then it usually wont kill it.

screenshot+replay or it didnt happen, since you are just posting it now there's a very high chance that you still have the replays. 

it's not the CVs, it's the playerbase that dont know how to play against them

post the screenshots/replays here so ppl can tell you what went wrong

Again, Dds role is now and have been the most skilled class for Players since they need many things to do as the same time.So your complain is not really thought out, but for me to advice you, go play other classes and learn and adapt. :cap_horn:

Screenshots/replays or it didn't happen.

Also hyperbole and exaggerations aren't helping anybody. It is certainly not helping WG in balancing CVs.

Impossible. Either exaggeration or over-simplification, unless a detonation, which is more RNG than anything.

Though I understand your pain and do agree that methods like smoking/aggressive turning to avoid incoming rockets/bombs seldom work, there just isn't much you can do about it right now. WG is clearly nerfing HE bombs to help out DD play but we need to adapt too. No longer can we just zoom in the middle of map without fearing anything. The other day I got hounded to death by 2 CVs on my fletcher. Before that lost half my health to one tier X rocket strike. Irritating yes, but WG knows all of this and if they still don't do anything on their very own, the game is a lost cause. So patience for now and watch how they balance CVs out.

OP

Probably not one shot but one formation well maybe, if you're not paying attention a HE Bomber formation or Attack aircraft will end your game quickly.

Some advice (if you'll take advice off a Average player) would be AA off, chop or gain speed, maneuver hard and pray to RNGJesus, especially under T9, where two CV's is just one to many if you are the only DD in the game. Even better if you can drag them into the edge of a friend AA Cruiser as well.....makes for giggles.

Really, know why so many DD players are bitter at all these , to me really its not the CV, its WG's long held intention to just taking care of the BB and now CV, and pretty much left DD players ever less capable and less able to perform their intended role and duties, the ever harassing aerial spotting and attack is the last straw on the camel's back .... remember when people complain about long range torp .. then WG take that away from most of the IJN line and some others ( picture this the T8 Kagero had a torp with less range than the USN Fletcher with a longer reload time and a far less performing guns ) ; then people complain about smoke and stealth fire so that got nerfed, then flooding then come Hydro, and Radar, and longer Radar reach, longer Radr duration, CV, CV spotting, and aerial attack that can keep on and on  ( with dispersion that's significantly unrealistic even for game purpose ) ...

Basically WG had made it easy for the big guns ( and now CV ), and at the mean time leave the light force ( DD  and CL mainly ) alone, never bother to update their spec , task, duties, and ability to reflect the changes. if WG still mean for the DD to do screening the they must made it able to perform that, and reward that, that goes for spotting ( which now they are redundant in the role ) and if WG intent on DD playing on Stealth to attack, then it must be allow to attack from stealth ( aka not being spotted, longer reach of all guns and torps ) ; yes the whole principle for  DD / CL fight is not to brawl but to snipe and assault, and the game mechanism must be changed or the ship needs to be changed to be allowing them that, and that is not the case now. And of course the game mechanic which only reward damage further the light force non-initiative to perform such non rewarding and often dangerous supporting role ( why bother doing all the dirty work when others can farm and get rewarded from behind , when those who do go fort just got killed and get a negative credit and miniscate amount of EXP )

Of course WG is not alone to be in the blame, we players are too, with the ability as in old days, when DD and CL stealth fire, it can be countered by cruisers going up front to repeal, drive them away , now nobody ever do the duty of that cause any going forth is guaranteed a single way ticket back to port, so in the end it further drive the game to focus even more on ranged fighting , and that further drive light force out of the game ( as they are effectively either abandon by their own team or they are forced to sit back and just watch ) .. the lack of any real support from guns is yet another reason why light force are bitter a times .. and rightly so .. its again reciprocal .. guns not supporting light force up front up close up among the heat, then light force practically will not do their duty to guard and screen the flank , everybody then just huddle together at least 8 or 10KM away from any objective and no one ever come out to actually do anything .. and those brave one who do, are singled out and cried NOOB by so many when so many just sit and let the game victory slip away

In the end ; its down to the simplest, it basically just do not work, the current AA, the current DD/CL mechanism and spec and that coupled with too much leeway skewed towards the big guns BB and CA, and now CV made the confrontation and sentiment mutually more and more excluding to each other and that not just towards the enemy team .. the current meta not just made it so the light force cannot work, they made it so that they cannot even work together with their own team ( and yes we players are to be blamed for our timid and only save myself mentality too )
