Can anyone remember if, or when, any line was introduced that there was not an immediate call for nerfs to be instituted?

For me, anytime I lose at anything, someone was cheating or it was unfair and should be nerfed. So, yes my first 17 games I was calling for nerfs on all ships...except mine, mine should always be buffed.

When they could invisifire was there no call to nerf?

 

Not that I saw.  Their detection range was penalized more for firing than other lines IIRC.  Plus, ships in most, if not all lines could do it.

German DDs as a line were never capable of invisifiring. They had their gun bloom set high from the start, a patch or so before all the other DDs got it, and it was one of the reasons everybody thought they were crap.

As mentioned, French Cruisers and German Destroyers. Response to the British Cruisers was mixed.

KM DD line rolled out without much fan fare.  I think most complained about them more than what impact they had on the current game meta.  Frenchie cruisers were also pretty much a non issue.

The American BB's came in with little or no crying but the game was still in testing.

German DDs were spec'ed for the invisivire nerf before the invisifire nerf, so they were regarded as UP on release. I can't recall anyone saying the French cruisers were OP, they seemed to be pretty well balanced.

 

RN CLs were never considered OP, just different.

KM DDs, they got nerfed before release lol.

I also don't remember people saying the French CLs need a nerf.

German DDs got smacked in the face before release, I really felt bad for the guys looking forward to that line.  But the rest of the DD lines didn't get to relax for long.  Stealth Fire Nerf happened not too long after.  Instead of buffing German DDs to be more in line with IJN & USN DDs, they nerfed everyone else.

 

On the flip side of this, the last line where there were calls for nerfs after initial, high performance?  EASY.  German Battleships.  Their armor, speed, secondaries broke open and redefined what Battleship play was.  If you didn't like static BB play, German BBs were for you.

American battleships, French and British cruisers, German cruisers, German destroyers.  Just about the only three lines with any sort of immediate call for nerfs were, in order from least to most backlash, the German BBs, Russian DDs, and then finally - by a truly enormous margin - the Japanese CV line.

No, but I can tell you from personal experience that "nerfs" fired from most Elite series sting more than those fired from the Zombie-strike series.  And both sting a good bit when fired point blank at your [edited].  Nothing like a budding DD captain (granddaughter) sneaking up behind a BB (papa) and popping them...followed by a giddy giggle I'm sure every DD captain has when they do the same in WOWS.

I played an RTS game for about ten years and through several patches. For ten years, the forum conversations went like this.

 

We need balance!
When will the new patch be out?

The patch was released!

The patch sucks!

We need balance!

When will the new patch be out?

IJN DD, was and still is the same since alpha. crapof a line really, and getting worse as more and more hard counters appear in game. Completely opposite of power creep. The line will get even worse as more radars and general skill level of the player base increase further.

USN ships are also pretty much the same, only buffs.

German and French cruisers had very few calls for nerfs, except maybe Konigsberg/Nurnberg before the BFT/AFT changes to not affect main battery guns >139mm.
