    Do you wish to see +/- 1 Tier Only

    Ah, the Kamikaze, the best $14 I ever spent on entertainment. Gets me back to the good old days of the Minekaze. The Kamikaze is not so much of a problem since it gets up Tier to 7 a lot. It's merely completive at that point. Which is to say, yes, it's OP. The Clemson, now there's a bad ship for the game. OMG the seal blood runs like a river.

    Wows Culture

    I think the community skews to an older demographic, so mouthing off is less tolerated. Basically a maturity of out look. Random people in a random game with random objectives.

    DD's dont need help from Wargamming.

    They removed a reason why I suck at DD's. Dam you WG. No excuses now.

    Abusive purple players

    I give bad Karma to anyone who badmouth the team or team member. "Please report X" kind of nonsense. OP ignore them. They have bad games or make bad plays to.
  5. You have less then 500 battles. Most of those in Battleships. I would not worry about your scores yet. Wait till you have a couple of thousand games under your belt, then consider your score.

    need some destroyer opinions

    I very much think that DD lines are best accessed by your personality. Are you aggressive and kinetic (Russian)? Or are you cautious and plotting (IJN). And by plotting, I mean sneak attacks. Sorry Japan.

    My santa crate haul so far.

    I've played a game or two in the Kami. You can still be competitive in a Tier VII match. What a great little ship. 19 point captain? Well that's seal clubbing in a Tier V match, but hay, those seals aren't gonna club themselves. Have fun.
  8. I've played a stupid amount of various Japaneses Destroyers. Almost 8,000 games. I mean what the hell. So I've started to play the Russian DD line. Man, what a hoot they are. The polar opposite of the Japaneses. The Japaneses style is quiet and methodical. The Russians, fast and kinetic. So IJN DD mains, if you try the Russian DD's, you already know how to play them. Just do everything you find most annoying about them, and be aware of how you would have countered them. Cheers.

    "Bravery" vs not being awful.

    Thank you for saying this.

    Weekend Spree.

    I don't have weekend sprees so much as weekend spews as I have to wipe the screen clean of coffee or whiskey as I watch my team throw a victory away.

    Pink abuse?

    I'll take a stab at this and guess that the OP was in a cruiser. It's been my experience, as a DD main, is that your "Allied" torpedo happy cruiser's are just as big a threat as the Red's. Can't count the times I've had to dodge torpedo's fired by friendlies that only had the range to reach me. Sigh....

    Wows is not for the younger generation THEY DONT CARE!?

    If teens are not playing this game it comes down to pace and multitasking. To do well in this game you need to fight your ship, be patient, keep an eye on the mini map and look ahead 2 to 5 minutes to anticipate whats going to happen. That's a lot to ask from a teenager. What's the mean age of the player base, late thirty's? I can see being a senior citizen in a few years myself.

    Declining Win Rate

    It will improve, I'm taking a beating today. Being played like a drum.

    How to destroyer?

    I vote for the ship being your trouble. When I, in a Kamikaze, look forward to gun fighting you, that's a problem. Destroyers are a tricky deal. You always need to be evaluating risk vs reward. Don't throw your self away in the first half of the game. DD's come into there own in the last half of the game. Your only 41 games into destroyers. They take a while to figure out. Get passed the Terrible-22 which is only bested by the Mutsucky for worst ship in the game.

    Declining Win Rate

    I'm not an expert on these thing. I basically play only two ship. Both have the same exact play style. I posted my chart below. It's almost the opposite of what you got going. I switched my focus from out right damage to being or doing what ever needed to be done for the win. If from stealth I can keep that DD spotted for my team to shoot at, well that's good for the team, not my damage average. I try not to chase that BB that's sail off into the corner. He's no longer in the fight. I'll try and cap instead. I'll abandon screening allies if capping means we can win instead. I can't tell you what exactly needs to be done, but if you keep an eye on the mini-map and the flow of the game, You'll figure it out. Cheers.
