They are too weak:

1)Low chance of setting ships on fire

2)basically beacons swimming around because they have to be loud to do anything "decently"

3)No match in term of damage out put compare to any other Japanese destroyers at the same tier 

4)War Gaming is now trying even harder to kill them by replacing speed boost with AA boost when upgrading to the best hull for your ship

5)Hunting destroyers and kill a DD only give you only 1/4 of the amount of Exp given out when killing a battleships, IJN torpedo noobs ships (Minekaze, Shimakaze) get BBs kills without even trying

 

My proposal :

 

Option 1:

+150% chance of setting enemy ships on fire in US destroyers

-500-750 meters detectability range

+25% Health (not sure about this)

Higher Exp pay out for Destroyer kills

 

Option 2:

Nerfs to IJN DDs torpedoes damage and detectability range.

 

Not sure about option 2 some IJN captains are so protective of their overpowered ships.

 

Option 3

No changes needed, they are "balanced"

 

Option 4

Only buff tier 6+

 

Vote above and comment your thoughts on these proposal ideas below

IJN DD DO NOT need a nerf. They are fine as it is for their role.

 

It's USN DD need a "Rework" (Specifically use this over "Buff").

Where's the third option that they're alright?

 

Do you know that they eat Cruisers and IJN DDs for breakfast, lunch and dinner?

Explain to me how are they alright ?

 

They can shred any Cruisers and Destroyers they see with their retardedly OP guns? you probably sucked at playing USS DDs. better stick with those IJN DDs and hide in your smoke. :E

+300% chance of fire? I'm sorry, but that is completely ridiculous.

 

Honestly, a way to buff destroyers is through giving them utility - rewarding them for scouting, participating in anti-air, deploying smoke for allied ships, etc. That's already being looked at based on the latest dev Q&A. But for their direct-combat ability, USN DDs are faring a lot better than their IJN counterparts, simply because IJN DDs landing long range torpedo hits doesn't reward skill, but relies on targets being completely oblivious, as compared to skilled USN DD captains and managing their concealment bubbles.

And you probably keep showing your sides.

 

2 frontal guns are not going to do anything to a carriers or even a destroyer. Showing side is a must in destroyers and carrier brawl. Torpedo lead indicator doesn't work for me either so no I can't use an IJN DD

the moment you fire a gun: beacon is turned on: you are a now the priority target for enemy cruisers. You still blink through smoke and the enemy can see your torpedo approaching them much earlier than compare to IJN torpedo and your torpedo is not too fast either. The only tactic that ever work out for me, circling at 2km around an enemy ship
