    Hear me out.. As a DD main post patch

    The CV rework does not solve the main issues with CVs, and instead changes the engaging and balancing parts of the class. For one, what made CVs engaging and unique, that being complete tactical control and the reliance on your skill, is gone. Instead we rely on essentially attacking, rather than playing the complicated game of defense and offense CV players are used to. Secondly, the rework makes it easier to do all the most hated things about CVs, while removing what made them hard or balanced. AA is still weak, and attacks are still high damage, spotting is easier than ever, and without fighters or limited hangars, carriers have little opposition in this. Now it is essentially damage farming surface ships, while at a viewpoint that makes it harder to judge the tactical situation of the map. Adding the speed of engagement, and we lose the relaxed tone that drew me to Cvs. Now we'll have more CVs, but they're low effort, overpowered CVs, that focus on one thing, killing your ships. That's it. I don't know why this decision was taken, but at least I'll have my cruisers to fall back on.

    Stop the rework!

    Spot on. WG doesn't care about us. We're a niche they feel are elitist. Not much you can do about it, besides finding new, more fun ships to play.

  4. My God, CVs are ruining the game, and are broken, even before they're added to the main game! Let me ask you this. WG put a massive amount of effort into the rework, and spent months testing it in a closed environment. Why would they remove something before it goes live and we can observe how the meta shifts? Not that I like the CV rework, I think it's lazy and brain dead compared to the original, but that's just my opinion. However, I don't think CVs should be removed before all other opportunities are explored, after all, they are the epitome of naval might. And of course, this could have been warranted, if CVs were really broken in the first place, but as can be seen time and time again, the player base refusing to try to counter them was the real issue. A well coordinated team is far more scary to a skilled CV then any other CV, but due to the low player skill, it was very rare to see. I don't play much anymore, but from what I recall, the only ships you could safely strike were either late game targets, or ships that had terrible positioning considering the presence of a CV. Look, this thread is hilariously premature. Wait until it goes live, the craze dies, and the meta settles. Then ask. Otherwise it just looks misguided on your part.

    This is very accurate.

    Day 3 of IJN dd

    Believe me, my Taiho loves the influx of incredibly slow ships with no DFAA... Very fun. Other then that, get outplayed mate, the new gunboats are finicky, slow, and not extremely durable due to the fact tat they can't dodge when spotted. Besides, what's wrong with a DD finally doing the same avg damage as a cruiser? They sacrifice tactical flexibility for it, so why complain?

    DD Play is NOT dead.

    The privilege thing was a joke, sorry for the confusion.

    Caption the profile image above you.

    Looks a little bit too eager to sink that battleship.

    DD Play is NOT dead.

    I invite you to play any tier 8 CV for a couple games, then tell me who has privilege. ;) But in all seriousness, I find DD play to be far easier then cruiser play. I have a hard time seeing what the fuss is about.

    DD's high tier game is bad

    I've never really noticed an issue with rewards, as a DD, it's pretty easy to get near top if you play in a cap circle for a bit. CAs also get top pretty easily as well, for what, I don't know. They seem to be able to do it more easily then my CV does though! As I've said, I've seen battleships as some of the most impotent ships in the game. They have very little effect on a match, and very rarely will a game come down to good BB play. The other more slippery ships like cruisers or DDs have a much better chance of influencing a match then BBs do.
