high tiers recently has just been infested with way too many DDs

 

played 3 games in udaloi, nothing less than 5 DDs on each game

2 games with 5 DDs on each side, another one with 5 dds vs 6 DDs!!!!! thats just insane!!!

 

anyone dares pushing into cap gets cross torped to death!!

the torp soup is literally impossible to avoid!

 

high tier DDs are way too OP and needs a serious nerf mostly the Fletcher and Gearing, among other DDS

 

edit:  OH AND DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON HIGH TIER BASTION MODES WHERE ONE TEAM GETS 4 USN DDS VS 3 IJN DDS. 

I THOUGHT THIS crapWAS SUPPOSED TO BE FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The problem isnt DD's its cruisers.

 

Cruisers are bad, pushing players into BB's which is turn pushes other players into DD's to counter the BB's. Which in turn pushes players into DD's to counter the DD's. This is all because cruisers arent fun or rewarding to play for 95% of the market.

I agreed with the first part and then the post just turned into really promising bait.

Damn, you have to have variety in how you approach situations based on what the matchup is like? How stupid.

In those matches where MM matches one of the enemy's DD for a lower tier cruiser on your team, who has the advantage?

again how is it a bait,

why are there so many high tier DDs at the moment?  is it not due to the extremely powerful stealth they have, and the mobility and the ultra powerful torps that can just wreck any ship while remain unspotted??

particularlly the USN tier 9 and 10 DDs have stealth, have good guns in a close range brawl, have really really good torps

 

if they are not OP they why is that high tier is world of DDs right now

My biggest issue with a lot of DDs in a game, while playing a battleship--especially a slow US battleship, is that the DDs eat all the food before I can even get into position to shoot at anything.

The reason there are so many high tier DD's is because there are so many battleships, the reason there is so many battleships is because cruiser captains are walking the plank and quitting them.

I would like to know, just out of curiosity, and because OP didn't mention it or provide a screenshot, how many BB's were on each team in these games?

 

( inquiring minds wish to know ! )

 

I'd also like to know why the 5 or 6 DD's on OP's team didn't counter the 5 or 6 red DD's.

When there are 5 or 6 BB's on one team, and I lose, I don't blame all BB's.


 

( just the ones on my team who didn't do crap)


 

people shouldn't let their lives be ruled by fear and hate

*Plays a DD*

*Complains about too many people playing DDs*

 

seems legit.

 

This part actually is legit and not self-contradictory.

 

Imagine a hypothetical MMO in which the Paladin class is massively overpowered. Further imagine players whining about too many Paladins in the game while playing the class themselves because everything else sucks. Obviously this is not a direct analogy, but logically speaking he's not making a contradictory statement.

Not exactly what the OP is saying though, he's saying that many DDs make a match unfun, not saying that DDs are OP individually, he also never says that the Udaloi is OP (the ship OP is playing), but rather the Fletcher and Gearing are OP. I do see how your point is correct, but IMO it's not 100% applicable in this scenario.

Nice bait. :popcorn:

As DD main, I find this to be hogwash

An Udaloi or Khabarovsk captain who's even slightly competent will tear a Fletcher or Gearing to shreds

surprisingly there were only 2 BBs on each side for the most part, not more than 3 

and yes for the whole game they were sitting in the back sniping, and with that many DDs with super long range torps i really dont blame them

bc ppl once said if you cant beat them join them

The over abundance of DDs needs to be fixed at high tier, but at the mean time i am gonna play DDs cuz they are just so good at the moment

what is the point of playing other ships and torturing myself, aka Cruisers?

Talks about other DDs being OP and needing nerfs, yet drives one of the two most OP DDs in the game. Yeah, seems legit...

 

cant beat them join them right?
