We are now a few months in after the IJN DD rework.  That gives people plenty of time to try then and plenty of data to get a rough estimate in statical trackers provided they track correctly.  (API corrupt rumors) 

Thoughts on IJN DD rework.  As unbiased poll as possible. 
No poll is ever 100% unbiased or is a relevant sample size indicative of the whole player population.  Do not bring these comments unless you can also state their counterarguments.  You can any other poll to find the exact argument repeated.  

Add comments as needed.

Might be different after the stealth fire removal.

 

Some of the IJN "torp boats" make excellent stealth gunboats, and I don't know how hard removing stealth fire will hit those.

Which ones are you thinking of will be hit hard?

  Look,  the branches are OK overall.  The issue is even before the spilt.   There are three small nerfs that affected the IJN DD line. 

1) Reduction in Alpha Damage 

2) Reduction in Fire chance

3) Increase in detection range of the Torps


 

  There is also the nerfing of the main line T5, Minikaze.  Torp damage and speed were reduced in addition to points 1 and 2.

Now, this does not mean I want the 20Km torps back...they can get rid of those.


 

I have t5-10 IJN DDs.


 


 

With respect.

In Yuugumo and have Akizuki. Removal of stealth gunboating will be a severe nerf. The guns will be pretty much useless after that.

 

We'll have to rely on our torpedoes again, which are still heavily nerfed to appease the tears of battleship mains.

 

And will likely be nerfed again as a result of this forcing IJN destroyer captains to use torpedoes again as their main source of damage.

 

Oh well. I'm going to just lock my turrets and only use my torpedo launchers from here on out. What I do only as a personal challenge in Fujin will become my staple play style in Yuugumo. It'll probably result in less disappointment anyway.

No point in playing this line after 6.3. US and VMF will do everything better

 

There's one reason to keep playing IJN destroyers.

 

Spite.

IJN need to have the torpedo advantage again.

This is why I played them, and this is why I'd like to return to grinding the line.

 

Torpedo advantage how :

 - Less detection

 - More Speed

 - More stealth fire window for torpedoes (at least have an option for all IJN DDs.  Detection is 6km?  you have 7km torpedoes and 8-9km ones... long range one still have less detection, but are slower).

 

I partially disagree with WG that "It is boring to fire torps then have nothing to do for a while"

Just cut the reload time of torpedoes in Half... and their damage/chance of flooding too.  That way most ship end-up with a 45sec reload and are very interesting to play again.

The effect is less insta-kills on the receiving end too (good) but you get shot at more often (Balances out).

 

When I want to use guns I play Russian DDs/American DDs.

When I want to use torpedoes, I'd like IJN to be that.

Thank you.
