Yea sorry. I don't feel bad for any Khab Captain. In a 1v1 gunfight with just about any other DD in the game it will win. If you're cruising a Khab and you try to take on a cruiser or BB then you're going into a losing battle knowing it or not. Unless you can manage to torp the larger ships.
But I'm sick of hearing how "balanced" the mechanics are from ship to ship. I don't care what the folks at WoW say. It's everything but.
Now with recent updates and new ships you have DDs with cruiser stats and Cruisers with light BB stats. And this is balanced?
I play gearing alot but the last 7-8 months have been ridiculous. I can't go toe-to-toe anymore with any other DD except Shima with any reasonable expectation of winning the fight.
Gearing seems good for nothing anymore but long range torping and spotting undetected. And once detected the only hope of escape is to drop smoke and boost out of detection range.
Along with other recent developments in the game, and hearing other similar sentiments in the in-game chat, I feel more and more like WoW is purposefully degrading the older favorites in the game. Possibly to try and get more folks to reset branches. And so far I have only come across one person who is doing just that and they're sorry they did.
Seriously, who the hell wants to grind out the same branch all over again just to get access to another ship/bonuses?
And WoW.... please stop preaching about balanced mechanics.
