In the beginning when WG announced the Soviet tech tree, and the stats were starting to be revealed, i thought that the Soviet DDs were better gun boats than the USN counterparts. Now, i'm not so sure how the ship will survive in high tier match with its lack of concealment, and the general gameplay of DD in high tier matches. Soviet DDs make the USN DDs look nice for once.

Man this youtuber is basically pooping like no tomorrow on them Russian DD's #thuglife, mind you, its true the Mahan and Farragut are a bit of a grind at times, but they are playable and the Benson is worth the grind  :P

And Why the Benson is worth the grind?

 

Torpedoes? Because the USN DD guns are Duh after the Nicolas and you are forced to admit Damage is the thing that matters? 

 

Shows you how Balanced DDs are.

i would just wait untill they reach to actual be released because in supertests that is subject to be CHANGED. Wait for a better youtuber to cover them soon or later

 

 

yes i did agree the soviet DDs are bad but i like the gunboat idea i rarely fire torps. KM CAs in currently still playable in the supertest stats but like  them WG to improve them

Which is ironic when you consider Every-Single-Cruiser is a better "Gunboat" than you and the IJN got Torpedoes as well.

 

They have more armor, More AND Bigger guns, longer ranged, Better velocity and arc.

 

 

Oh DDs had Stealth!

 

And?

 

If you fire you will get spotted 4km eariler - i.e. You need to usually be at least 11km or more. And you need to suffer the Horrible Arc and Shell travel time.

 

 

How the games calculate rewards? Damage. Destroying aircraft gives ____, Spotting do nothing for now, Capping also gives ____ and usually you cannot cap >5 times anyway.

just remeber the WoT individual tank stats but.

 

Sometimes the paper stats are absolutely 1,000,000 miles off the mark of reality.

 

many of the russian tanks paper stats merely equal or underperform vs counterparts ON PAPER....yet in battle they FAR EXCEL.

So you are telling me, the 3km Torp range is actually 30km? And the turning circle is 70m instead of 700m?

 

The Critical stats are still _____.

Let me count, how many days till release...? 2 weeks? The Stats are "Officially" published on Portal as well.

 

If they gonna change it, change it quickly then.

 

And even so, No DD is truely viable after Tier 5.

Why do you say that? DDs perform quite well at higher levels in my experience. Across the board they are massively overpowered vs what they could do historically but from what I've seen the higher tier DDs are very effective.

The Soviets came after the Russian Empire, yet at tier 1 the Orlan flies the Soviet ensign, while the tier 2-4 destroyers have Imperial Russian Navy flags.

 

Also, 40 second turret traverse and only 3 km torpedoes? Oh dear...

Might be viable if they use the full concealment and invisible firing mechanic but that would only be for higher level ships I guess when they unlock the crew skills and modules.

How Pros use them Russian DD's lol, meanwhile in my slow ass Mahan...

 

Yeah, watch a DD gun a BB to death. What on earth could possibly be wrong with that?

 

But I guess we'll see.

If you want guns, why didn't you just play a cruiser with torps? Far better than a DD, except for the speed.
