ST. Pan-Asian destroyers.

Smoke Generator consumable's cooldown is increased for all of the researchable Pan-Asian destroyers. Standard equipment cooldown - 150 s (up from 120 s), premium equipment cooldown - 100 s (up from 80 s).

Currently destroyers show higher efficiency against cruisers, thanks to the deep water torpedoes, at the same time unique smokescreens allow them to easily fight for the cap areas with enemy destroyers. Cooldown increase will take away the opportunity to completely cover the ships in smoke and make them a little less multipurpose.

I have a feeling this is not the only change we will see regarding PA DD's.

What else are you expecting? Asashio-style torpedoes?

They've been way too strong in a lot of cases for a long time.

Gadjah able to chain smoke and pew-pew in a radar free T7 game was pretty typical, and brutal. Chung Mu is pretty brokenly OP, YY is very good too though if it takes radar... and Hsienyang was, is and will-be eternally rubbish.

Sure Pan Asian DDs are strong, buts what's wrong with that (other than they aren't Russian).   I hope you're wrong, although I think I see a torp detection nerf in the crystal ball.

I can't quite say what it may be. One of the biggest issues with Pan Asian DD's is their effectiveness against cruisers. I highly doubt that we would see a change in the DW torps hitting only BB's.. However I  believe we may see a change that would result in less effectiveness vs other DD's or Cruisers. Maybe a ROF nerf or   a Torpedo detection nerf. Not quite sure, but as you can see in the OP's post. 

"Currently destroyers show higher efficiency against cruisers, thanks to the deep water torpedoes, at the same time unique smokescreens allow them to easily fight for the cap areas with enemy destroyers.

Changing smoke doesn't really change much with that dynamic, so there is probably something else on its way but your guess is as good as mine.

That is what I think is coming.  Nerf the detection to maybe 1km.

Flooding chance nerf, perhaps?

I think maybe a torpedo detection nerf coupled with a flooding nerf as the poster above stated. 

I could also see a ROF nerf as well to give the Gearing an advantage over her in CQC.

Agreed, T7, T9 and T10 have been beyond OP since release.

I don't think this will be enough by itself to rein in Chung Mu and Yue Yang.

This hardly seems necessary given the upcoming release of a while new line of light cruisers (the DD's natural enemy), most with radar. DDs play is getting more challenging as more cruisers are introduced. Even in T7 MM radar is getting more common, and I rarely get games without a minimum of 2 radar ships

At the very least, they should wait until all the new light USN CLs are out and then evaluate things.

Don't use smoke so don't care...but don't be messing around with my Yang!! Yang me?, Yang Yue

Seriously though, hope there aren't nerfs to detection or rate of fire.
