I used to like Clemson.  But recently have developed a love for Izy.  Gun range, fires, and quick torp reloads.  I'm shooting for an AFT DE build.

Clemson by far. The double set of torps on both sides gives Clemson some ridiculous options when engaging enemies, while the guns are stupidly strong for its tier. Even the dispersion gives you a good chance of knocking out multiple DD components with a single salvo.

clubson is the best t4 ship, bar none. how is this even a question?

The draw back with Clemson is that it can't stealth torp, against BBs with experienced captains they struggle (particularly UK HE).

Isokaze can't duel or contest caps but deletes BBs at will and is very good spotting.

V170 can do both roles but not as well as either.

 

From my own experience you can throw a blanket over them stats wise

Looking at the poll results, I'm suspecting no one actually played the Izyaslav....  

 

Don't forget we are on the North American server and forums. Most if not all are going to play the Clemson while the Izyaslav gets less attention here. Consider the Izyaslav the secret sealclubber few people know about. I myself consider it much stronger than the Clemson.

 

P.S. There is an even less well known secret sealclubber that I use as well. If you want to know what it is, send me a message. No need to give away trade secrets after all.

Clemson is the standout, but Izyaslav and V-170 are both very powerful in their own right when driven well and can give the Clemson a run for its money. Isokaze is thoroughly underwhelming these days, having been absolutely gutted by the nerfs. It's still capable, but it's a lot harder to use and a lot less fun to play than any of the others.

I would have voted for Isokaze before the nerf. She was my favorite DD. Now she's just not worth the time.

...

So true. I have never seen a ship nerfed so hard, in so many ways. I loved that ship. I'm sure my WTR went down post-nerf. Now, I won't even sail her.

She's still got some teeth, I took her out for a few games as I was doing the comparisons as I hadn't sailed her in a while.

She didn't disappoint and would have been dynamite when the Brit BBs were introduced.

The Isokaze  was the pick before the nerf, it printed High Calibers as boats sunk to her fish and caps were taken. The Clemson is very good, and the I-170 is close with a good skipper. Still, the seals are safer with the Iso weakened.

The “problem” with Izyaslav is that you need a high skill point captain to get the most out of him (Russian ships are male right?)

I have Gremyaschy, Okhotnik, Leningrad and Krasny Krym.  They all need a captain with PM, LS, EM, BFT, DE, AFT and CE. Hmmmm, what tech tree ship could use that captain?  With that build, Izyaslav can enrage everyone else.  Watch BBs cry while you set them on fire repeatedly at range where they only hit you with dumb luck. Citadel cruisers who think “it’s only a DD” (and yes I know the Clubson can do that too).  Beat on red DDs with your rail guns.  And best of all, channel your inner Derzki when the opportunity arises and blow up BBs with your torps. 

Actually, I think most of the Tier 4 DDs are great.  Isokaze is just as good as the old Minekaze for its Tier.  Clemson is a strong ship and OP in the right hands.  Frankly I never gave the V-170 a chance.  I just have the most fun with Izyaslav.

Left out Admiral Makarov - Izzy Captain is perfect for AA build.

With the latest buffs received for turret turn, you actually no longer need EM for the Izyaslav any longer. I have been neglecting the captain for my Izyaslav in favor of building up captains for ships I use in Scenarios and 2nd experimental captains for high tier ships. If I were to finish a 19 point captain for Izyaslav now, skills would be PM, LS, BFT, AFT, CE, SE, AR.

Izyaslav has 5 guns that can be accurate at bigger distances and 3 sets of torps not so different from the rivals, and with 5km, better even than Minsks` ones.
