    Just get rid of carriers

    And then you torped, or radared, or lose spotting, or get rushed by a DD. Pretending DDs can just pop smoke and farm damage all match is an argument that can't be taken seriously.

    They do. Enemy fire can disable and destroy DDs' guns and torp tubes. CVs will respawn their planes over time. Imagine if DDs could sail around and not yake damage to their actual ship while firing and torping and only risked their armaments being temporarily disabled, because that's the deal carriers have right now.

    "Hurr durr playing DD against CVs is just fine"

    I said in my very first post that I was venting and I'm tilted. I'm sorry though, where in your post did you try to "help me improve?" My reply to your post is no more insulting than yours have been. And lets drop this whole "rock paper scissor" meme. The game is no balances in such a way. Even if it was, it would be DD beats BB, BB beats CL/CA, CL/CA beats DD. CV isn't a part of that RPS game. I'm not saying cruisers are a problem and want them removed. This entire post of yours and you calling me a troll is more insulting than what I posted towards you. So great, feel free to leave the thread.

    I never claimed you were taking sides. We were both having words, but your post came in response to his initial one. I think things here have been going okay so far, no need to worry. The thread hasn't gone off topic and nobody is at each other's throats here.

    because the point of the topic is the balance of CVs and how playing DDs, especially in high tier just not fun with them in the match. Shouldn't be too hard to grasp. the only reason I'm not playing DDs except for these torp missions is because of the CV rework making DDs unfun. I used to play DDs all the time.

    you realize the mod posting in response to your personal attack on me, right? The fact that you think DDs are immune to AP proves you don't have a good sense of the balance between the ship types. I still get nasty hits on DDs with AP loaded. It's just toned down a little. DDs are no where near the threat to battleships as carriers are to DDs. And that's a cute strawman you put in there at the end. A T8 CV can take off over half the HP of a T9 DD in one drop of a dive bomber, then finish it off in the next--full HP to nothing in mere seconds, and I'm complaining about "1 HP of damage." Sure thing, bud.

    The realistic situation would be, he would leave me, send his planes to another target, then have his next set coming at me after he presses the F-key and my smoke would be gone by then. If those DP guns in every other DD you play are fending off planes, then that's great for you, but in most DDs I play it doesn't seem to make much difference. I didn't say nerfing those other ship types' AA would be bad for DDs. It would be bad for those ship types. It would make them less fun to play. I play those ship types and wouldn't want that. And as has been pointed out by another poster, the damage farmers would be happy with that, but a good CV will always target the DDs first when he can. My position is that that CVs are fundamentally broken, impossible to balance, and make the matches for everyone else less enjoyable. It's always nice to see no CVs in the line-up when a match loads. I notice often comments in game chat when this happens where people mention their gratitude that there are no CVs. I never see any complaints about CVs not being present.

    Yeah, I forgot the tiers were limited against 9 and 10, not sure why they would do that, but it really makes no difference to the point of the topic.

    Couldn't have said it better.

    (fine Mr Mod, deleted) Firestorm, how about playing some high tier DDs first before giving your feedback. Because yes, CVs are in fact a hammer of death against destroyers, unless it's specifically an AA potent DD.

    "Hurr durr playing DD against CVs is just fine"

    You... you do know that not all DDs are UK DDs and a CVs ability to delete DDs is not unique to DDs that have seven charges of smoke, right? That smoke for UK DDs is up very briefly and if a CV wants to focus you, there's nothing you can do about it. That's not at all what he's saying? lol that's really funny. So a nerf to ships' AA isn't a buff to CVs? That's amazin!

    "Hurr durr playing DD against CVs is just fine"

    My solution wouldn't be to buff CVs and allow them to make even more ships miserable and unfun.

    "Hurr durr playing DD against CVs is just fine"

    Only bad players make that comparison, as if DDs are some kind of hammer of death against a battleship.

    no, it doesn't have speed boost. You have limited smokes. If the ship could smoke up whenever it wanted as many times as it wanted, then there would be no issue. But I can't afford to burn a smoke 30 seconds into the match on the bottom of the CV line just because one plane is near me. Because there will be one after that, and then one after that, and then one after that. So no, "lol just use ur smoke" isn't a solution.
  15. I was just in my T9 Jutland and a T8 Lexington at the very start of the match flew straight at me. I can only assume he must have been using RPF because he knew exactly where to go. The first drop knocked off over half my HP. Then second drop finished me. My AA did nothing. Changing speed, turning did nothing. DDs still get absolutely wrecked by CVs, if not from the american dive bombers, then from the strike planes or just plain being spotted. The only reason I'm playing DD right now is because of this stupid mission to get torp hits. Just venting because extremely tilted from being deleted from the match in the first minute because of WG's implementation of aircraft and having absolutely no defense against it.
