Okay got the stats.  Ranked Season 9  DD stats. 

US DD 8 Kidd 1096 13179 12.02

53.59

JP DD 8 Akizuki 2079 26034 12.52

53.96

US DD 8 Benson 4449 89624 20.14

50.64

JP DD 8 Kagero 3027 54936 18.15

49.12

JP DD 8 HSF Harekaze 1453 19254 13.25

47.16

JP DD 8 Asashio 869 12696 14.61

48.46

KM DD 8 Z-23 1197 19471 16.27

49.15

PA DD 8 Loyang 3360 47935 14.27

53.60

PA DD 8 Hsienyang 477 6611 13.86

46.22

 

I din't even bother putting the VMF DD's , any way. Akizuki / Loyang / Kidd in that order. 

 

Though the seperation between lo yang and kidd is small, the amount of GP are not. 

 

But still I feel personally from sinking many Lo yangs and akizuki's . That if played properly the kidd is the best tier 8 DD for ranked. My opinion of course. 

I can guess what each of the columns mean, but would probably be better if I had you tell me what was what, rather than me assuming. Then I can come up with an actual reply.

Don’t know why but the Kidd and I click. I should love the LoYang but the loss of 1 gun and hp don’t work for me. I destroy any dd in a cap in ranked. For random it really is limited in its role.

Horribly overpowered. It's a T8 Fletcher with a heal. Of course WG never nerfs premiums so...I dread the future where every tier becomes unbalanced because of OP premiums.

Respectfully disagree. It trades traditional jack of all trades America dd play for cap specialist. In random play Kidd’s abilities aren’t a huge asset. Highly effective against dds. Minimal effectiveness against anything else.

In ranked after eliminating dds my role is limited to spotting, back capping, and harassment but not necessarily effective torps. Kidd is worthless against cruisers or bb except landing an occasional torp. Two torp launchers and she would be op.

edit. 

Part of Kidd’s random play mundaneness is due to early cruiser support at the cap where I find less aggressive cruiser support in ranked play

Overpowered you say? she has the same firepower as the B benson, one less set of torp tubes than the B benson, stronger AA and kinda needs that heal as she very much a cap contester. I want to say you are clearly too ignorant to even have a say in this discussion.

Kidd can come across as OP due to her incredibly high skill ceiling.
