Such a pain to grind thru all the way to Halland...
Only Visby is balanced... and of course Halland is worth it...
But in between... ARGH
Now at Skane.

For their size, its look like it taking more hits than my bigger French DD and German DD.

And every attack hurt as much, despite having repair party... I am barely survive for continuous gunboat mode. 

Its feel like they play more as Torpedo boat.... Unspotted all the time. Those repair party and speed boost is for mitigating damage

Finally learned how to play EU DD style of gameplay after many defeats

They are designed as torp boat that can self defence at close range. Just a more extreme version of the concept. Getting into a gun fight with other dd is stupid. It does not have smoke to bail out and the gun quickly lose effectiveness as range increases.

Those ships are such a chore to play with until you reach T8 and above.

The guns are fine, it's the health pool you have to watch out for. Each hit does proportionately more damage.

No the guns not fine , due to their poor transverse and having to expose fair portion even to uncover the angle , or you are faced with having to use only 2 guns ... and until you get to T7 the reload is kind of poor ( considering how little those torp do damage , you would expect some balance on the guns, well no )

The are torp boat by all means , and getting into gun fight in them is pretty hopeless unless you are talking even worse ( IJN ) , their speed is also pretty slow as far as a DD goes, with only Visby and Västerås  can claim to be good and decent respectively , they do not had smoke, and yet they had poor HP pool , the heal do not help if you can easily get one-shoted or simply lost 1/2 , 2/3 or even more in a single salvo. They also are not that good in concealment either ..

Still can be fun, but do not expect much , they are not there to contest cap against other DD nor even good at ambushing ( too easily spotted )

T9 and 10 are fun though. Ostergotland is one of the better tier 9s. Halland is one of the best tier 10s. Play as a torp boat and youse guns only when necessary.
