You want to hunt light cruisers and be nearly useless doing typical DD jobs like spotting, contesting and capping, go Z-31.

You want to be average but capable at doing typical DD Jobs like spotting, contesting and capping, go Maass.

Not a DD main, so take my advice with a grain of salt.

The original DD line (ie. Maas) is good at contesting caps and bullying other DD's out of their smoke. Hydro. The original DD line just keeps getting better as you go up the line. I am on T9 - Z-46 right now.

Z-31 and the subsequent ships don't have hydro, and have poorer concealment, so are not suitable for contesting caps (they are ok with taking caps later in the game though. Z-31 and it's descendants are good at bullying lone cruisers and harassing BB's when built for long range gunnery due to the best in game dispersion.

RN DDs...

KM Z-52 line is a bit average these days, I don't enjoy them at all...

Elbing line can be fun (after Z-31) but they're niche as hell.. 

TBH I don't enjoy playing most lines except RN DDs and IJN gunboats from 8-10, so take what I say with a grain of salt

I think they are both fun. Z-52 line is more engaging to play.

tbh, Z-31 line is better because Elbing is nice; Maass line has nothing fun

is any DD line whose job is to forth and spot, screen, scout, cap and contest and so actually fun these days .. in a broad sense ?

Every DD line can be fun , so long one play the niche , DD are by their nature specialist , even the generalist USS DD are highly specialized for some task and not good for others and even within a line , specific individual DD might exhibit totally different niche character and demand a different take and a different play

 

To OP : Z-31 is a CL , not a DD , you play it more like the Royal Navy CL ( but without all the gimmicks ) , Maas is a typical DD , it can do the DD things but not exactly excel much at any except the Hydro

DD shall never spot, screen, scout, or cap as long as submarines are not further nerfed
