Ok guys I'll smoke you (far enough back where it is effective) and then spot for you.

Gunfight another dd, dodge radar and hydro....

get the cap, tell the team where you will smoke them next while still running blocker as 7 ships follow you

Re smoke team as a bogie appears, and keep him spotted.

Push forward, keep a full eye on the horizon.....

Hit a torp or two... 

cap another base

Spot some more...and the game ends... Everyone Congrats the Hindenburg on his 45k kraken, great game..... You wait for it, that one compliment....after you leave the game.... and it isn't there...

Maybe you can build a computer that gives you a pat on the back when you do well.

This is a mid tier version

  1. Push caps at start
  2. Drop smoke but stay out of it...  
  3. Let enemy drop torps at smoke
  4. Spot him... impending gunfight ensues
  5. Battleships finally catch up, maybe some of the purposely slow cruisers
  6. Drop smoke for friendly cruisers
  7. They do not understand gun ranges inside smoke.   They get spotted band focused on
  8. Drop smoke for a friendly BB so they can heal
  9. They do not understand gun ranges inside smoke.   They burn to death
  10. continue to try and cap
  11. Help spot and carry team
  12. Give up on helping others as frustration kicks in
  13. laugh when chat explode with salt and blame game

I have pretty equal parts DD, CA, BB skill.   But hands down DDs carry or break the game.   Its that way in ranked, a good portion in clan battles, and randoms as well.  So hats off to all DD mains out there

I don't do anything anymore, as soon as I see the BBs sit back, i sit behind them and let them cry about me not scouting or capping, or anything .. I am absolutely done playing for the team,  I am going to sit back and do absolutely NOTHING for my team in most matches,    I am just going to mine salt .

Sometimes being a humble player is a good thing. If you helped your team win but didn't get kraken that's ok, just know you played correctly and go on to the next game.

Think that's bad?  My entire team died in ranked and I ended up defending 2 caps by myself in my DD and got a solo warrior in a 1 vs 5 situation.

0 compliments.

In the words of DD player you were doing your job and being a team player that's all that matters.

Z-52.

There are 5 red cruisers, a Donskoi, Moskva, Baltimore, Cleveland and Minotaur. At least 4 have radar.

A cyclone descends.

What a joke.

I got raged at yesterday by a cruiser begging for smoke, I told him it was on cooldown, by the time it was up and as I popped it he got last hit killed. he then tells me how I suck because I can't force a cooldown faster I guess.

I know that I don't recognize good DD work or anyone's work for that matter as often as I should but I do appreciate it because it can and is often the difference in winning or losing. However, an even more thankless job is CV. If you are good you are hated and if you are not you are still hated.

The real life of a DD,

Amen, brother!  I'm, in Tier IX USN and IJN dds and I find myself running from radar cruisers as I scream for help from my team (this is AFTER I request that they look out for the very cruisers at the beginning of the game, I point them out when I spot them, and I request fire as I'm running).

Unless as a player you've played dds, you don't realize how crucial they are to winning the game.  Most Random players just look at them as annoying little ships that need to be taken out early so that the "big boys" can slug it out with each other.

If players bothered themselves with a little knowledge, like history, they would see how much good dd tactics can influence a battle.  If they even watched a few videos, they would see that too.

The worst part is that just as I start to type a compliment at the end of a match it's already frozen on the end-of-match screen and headed to the results screen. There's no lag time to push a compliment through.

I'd send a PM in game to compliment for some o' you folks have names that are so hard to remember due to either length or spelling and unfortunately, I haven't been issued a photographic memory thanks to supply depot not getting enough in their delivery. :cap_wander_2:

He means the in-game compliment feature, where you right-click their name > Compliment > [select compliment of your choice].
