What IJN DD gives you the most trouble?

For me, it's the Hatsuharu. I still use her for captain training, so the skipper is usually an 8 or 9 pointer.

My torpedo hit rate is half the other IJN DDs in my port. The gun hit rate is about average with everything else.

I really like this particular boat - it's actually the one that finally inspired me to stop playing for simple stress relief and try to play a winning game - inspired me to learn my trade as an IJN DD driver, so to speak. So she has a special place in my heart and my port. But I can only manage about 40% win rate and I'm 13 games under .500 with her.

I'm just curious what other folks struggle with on the IJN DD line.

Mutsuki, the lifeless pig she is.

The new, nerfed Isokaze. Just can't get a handle on her. It's too much drop off from the pre-nerf one and I may never get used to. Same for the nerfed (again and again) Minekaze.

Yugumo  POS that it is.. well at least to me.  The Kagero was bad and a struggle, everyone said Yugumo will be better, It's OP it's great it's NOT.  For some reason I could not figure that boat out.  I got so frustrated I sold it last night.. 

Maybe it's just the high tier Meta and I don't get it or maybe I just suck as a player but I could never get that boat and my play style to come together nor could I figure out where it shined.. 

Might be all high tier DD play, not sure yet, but I do ok in the Fletcher and ok in the Z-46..  Working on the Kiev also which is fun and a challenge.

I may go back to the Minekaze and work up to the Akizuki and stop there...

Ah that.... THING.  Probably my most hated DD until T-22.

You can love them when there red.

The only DD's I actively go after in the Kamikaze.

Yugumo and Kagero both work great with TRB. Arguably, their torp DPM is balanced on actually using TRB. 

Personally, I can't seem to get Akizuki to work for me. All others are fine, but that said I'd never actually played Mut-sucky-sucky, because I sort of jumped past it when line split happened.

I started that grind. The Minekaze, so far, is cra cra. It seems like few in the limited battles that I have had, expect torpedoes from "nowhere." 

Well, let me introduce you to my little friends. :cap_haloween:

While in truth my answer is Mutsuki, I would also like to say Shimakaze. I vastly outperform it in Yugumo. I feel like Shima handles like a fat pig, the torp reload is downright glacial, and overall I just feel like I can do less in it than Yugumo. I realize that's not typical and Shima can do much better than I can seem to get out of her but, I dunno, just hasn't clicked yet.

Prior to the concealment buff Shima was weaker than Yugumo.

Keep at it.  Shima is strong right now with 5.6km concealment.
