You know, in the old tech tree you'd still have to have played Mutsuki to advance up the line, right? And that she was a tier 6, right? So you would have had a longer grind against tougher opponents, right? By moving Mutsuki down to tier 5, they cut down the amount of time you'd have to spend playing that ship. In all respects this was a BENEFIT for you.
LOL. Low-tier US DDs bad? REALLY? Clemson, Nicholas and Farragut say hello?
Took your lumps? In ships like Umikaze and Isokaze which completely dominated the tiers they're at? Umikaze, a ship that people would take into tier 10 matches to dump torps on hapless Yamatos with impunity?
There will be a tier 9 and 10 implemented for the new line later on said Wargaming, which is why it doesn't connect into the main line.
What you have to realize here is Seraphil seems to hate any GOOD DD's with torps that kill his BBs . Who says this has to just be a shoot the guns game ? For those of us that enjoyed the IJN line as it was , this was a horrific nerf that was unfair and unwarranted.
I point to the OP Bismarck / Khabarovsk / Moskva / DM Donskoi .
Try getting to within 10 K of a Bismarck's secondaries . Moskva with 11.7 radar detect , DM with 11.0 radar detect , Khabarovsk with it's HUGE speed advantage and OP guns . There's ships that over perform . Anti Dd nerfs are out of control right now . Then they nerf hit the torps on the entire IJN line ?
Every time there's a good ship that people run to it seems it gets nerfed to pieces eventually . Cleveland is a great example of that . It wan't enough that they screwed it's guns over then they fired up the Citadel nerf on it and all of a sudden it's an AP disaster . Now it's a Port Queen that only gets used to kill Aircraft . Is it a bad ship ? No not at all . BB's are just too OP now to play cruisers unless you wish to grind out to the upper tiers and get that radar to screw over the DD's .
The bottom line here on the IJN Dd line is they are now the WORST available DDs in the game per tier across the board after the great nerf . This is mainly due to the torp nerf and their general lack of speed . With all the radar and super Hydro that's out there now the IJN line with it's slow speed are inferior ships
