    are DDs OP?

    Judging on how they die like flies in the first half of the game, OP, no. A well played DD in the second half of the game is a force to be reckoned with. Like any class, it all depends on the skipper for the ship to seem powerful.
  2. "Those who dire" right. When I sail into the cap, I'm already setting up my escape plan.

    Favorite Premium

    Kamikaze, almost as good as the old Minekaze, au how I miss you.
  4. Actually a well played CV, in the current play style, will dominate the game. A well played DD would be next in line. The catch being "well played". How many well played CV's or DD's do you see? .

    WG - Please look at the uncounterable DD rush

    If you don't want me to torpedo you. here's the do's and don'ts: Do's Sail with and protect your cruisers. Sailing with another Battleship just makes you a more tempting a target for a Destroyer. Take every opportunity to shoot at Destroyers. Encourage you team to shoot at Destroyers. Build your secondary. If you're confronted by a Destroyer, run away. Pay attention to the mini map and where the Destroyers have been spotted. Exit zoom view to look around. Don'ts: Wonder off on your own. Sail in a straight line. Camp next to an island. Sail to close to an island. Bunch up. Destroyers have the speed and stealth, so they decide where and when to attack you. Or you could ignore this because your a Big Stupid Battleship With Big Stupid Battleship Guns, "How dare your punny ship challenge me".

    so radar?

    As a IJN DD Main, radar is fine. It just pushes engagement ranges in the first part of the game out further. You can uses the 12 KM torpedos for the Shimakaze and be pretty safe attacking at 9 to 10 KM. Playing the Kamikaze, you get up tiered a lot. With some smart careful play, she still works well. LOS would be a good change. Radar is kinda like Star Trek scanners now.

    Hear me out.. As a DD main post patch

    Carrier Captains can only do one thing at a time now? Sweet! A good multitasking CV skipper could dominate a game. As a DD main, I'll bet perma-spotting will be less of a thing. How much fun can there be in followings a DD around. If you are perma-spotted, you can do the standard sail to the nearest AA heavy friendly to scrub him off.

    Radar and how to deal with it

    I only have the shimakaze at tier 10, so I can only speak to that. Before radar you could sneak in real close, 6.5KM, for your attack. With radar, thats been pushed out to 9KM. This has made getting hits a lot rougher. Holy Cow, if you get spotted as a DD at tier 10, you can die real fast. So play it safe for the first 8 minutes. Give the BB's some time to smash the radar cruisers.

    Strategies for japanese destroyers?

    This is what I do. I usually head to the cap that's closest to me. If it's one of the crappy ones surrounded by islands, I'll speed boost with the speed flag. I can do just over (Kamikaze) 42 knots. The idea is to be the first one there and already pointing to your escape route. Don't stop in the cap, just reduce speed to stay in the cap. I have RPF so I know which way the Red DD is coming. I have my tubes trained in that direction. Once I see him, one of two things will happen. The first will be that he is shot at by your team which will make him run away or smoke up. If he smokes up, well, smoke is a torpedo magnet right? The second is, if he's unharast, he will charge in and try and spot you. If that happens, go to full speed, fling torp's, smoke up and run to your friends. Your already pointing to your escape route right? If there's a Red airplane buzzing around in the cap, forget it. Come back later. If you get radared, in my experience unlikely, bail on the cap. Come back later. I survive about 68% of my games in the Kamikaze. It's not a supper hard thing. Good Luck.

    I'm Sorry but this game is all about the DD

    You can charge the cap as a DD and not die in the first 5 minute. I survie about 70% of my games last time I checked. Here's a tip for not dying: If your a DD that has been spotted in the cap and you don't see whos spotting you, don't smoke up and sit there particularing if the detected icon is up. This is how I get most of my DD kills.

    You beat me to that one

    Reported because I'm not super skilled?

    I've literally carried the day for the win and been down voted. Karma means nothing. Don't let it ruin your fun.

    What happened to DASHA?

    You can't be a real stalker unless you have a full sized cargo van.

    The break!

    Heal up, best wishes.
  15. How can anyone tell the difference between AFK and being disconnected from the WG server? It's always fun to re-sign into a game to see if your still alive.
