And that's ok..... or at least, it would be, if a DD player could be rewarded equally well for things that DON'T involve explosions.
Ideally, different ship types would be played because they offer different ways to get decently rewarded, instead of just offering different ways to sink other players.
Well, DDs do get a good chunk of base XP and credits from capping. But I do agree that spotting should be rewarded MUCH more than it is now. A player who understand spotting and concealment mechanics is a tremendous asset to their team. It should be encouraged.
