WG, nerf DDs now! 

#sarcasm

Every time new ships are released, the queue gets flooded with them. The current MM we're seeing is about as relevant to balance discussions as this screenshot. 

People overreacted the last time we had an influx of new ships, and people started crying foul over the "OP consumable" they carry. 

Please don't be part of the community that has mood swings like a pubescent teenager. I implore you to be better than that.

They really ought to limit DDs to two a side.

#WEEGEENERFNAO

I'll be back when the RN DDs arrive to say the same thing.  Then when the Russian battleships are introduced.  Then the Italian cruisers.

 

XD XD XD XD

I don't see a problem there. More targets for cruisers if they actually do their jobs instead of spamming BBs.

edit: Got a thumbs down and I play cruisers 75% of the time and get irritated by other cruisers not hunting DDs in favor of spamming BBs.

You're right, this is a cruiser paradise. Likewise, battleship saturated games are a destroyer's paradise, and cruiser saturated games are a battleship's paradise. 

Queue saturation is going to be good for some and terrible for others. However, temporary trends shouldn't be cause for alarm.

New ships always make  me think of The City On The Edge Of Forever. McCoy enters the portal and changes history, once Edith Keeler dies we all step back through the Portal and the portal says "All is as it was, many such journeys are possible".

Shouldn't the Gearings eat the New Japanese Gunboats alive?

I can go toe-to-toe against a Gearing with the Akizuki, and come out of it alive. So no, not necessarily.

Cruiser Paradise eh? . . .

 

As I sail through the channel where I harvest my salt

I take a look at my ship and realize she’s got a floatplane

But that’s just perfect for a Cruiser like me

You know, I shun fancy things like smoke screen

At 2:30 left on the clock I’m radarin dds

@Lert farms the cits and @Doomlock sings a song, fool

Even @LittleWhiteMouse thinks my mind is gone.

I’m a man of the sea, I took shrapnel to the knee

Got a copy of Friedman’s in my hand and a binocular to my eye

But if I finish all my tasks and you finish thine

Then tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1939.

 

We been playing most our ships

Living in a Cruiser paradise

I’ve devstriked once or twice

Living in an Cruiser paradise

It’s crazy moves and radar thrice

Have seen more then my share of “the sky is falling” threads with almost any introductions - and every time the player base integrates the changes in pretty quickly.

Have to say this morning ripped off a quick game and the Minatour on our team feasted pretty heavily on red DDs - opportunities for cruisers to Kraken without really trying

Yeah, Aki uptiers incredibly well. Assuming equal skill, the Aki has a good chance of beating the Gearing in a gunfight.

Nope, it will get wrecked badly due to its superior DPM and HP.

 

Only thing Gearing can do is drop torps and pray.

Wasn't there already a thread today on complaining about complaining?

Are you complaining about complaining about complaining? 

If so, I will complain about complaining about complaining about complaining.

So which OP consumable do these ships carry? Can't wait to try the new Gearing...

 

 

 

You can't say the R-word or the thread gets tossed into the 200+ page dumpster. It's the consumable that shall not be named.

Wonderful. Hope that inspires more CVs. Cause best way to counter a DD is to perma-spot them.. I remember the times Before Hydro and Radar; CVs had a decent role a Secondary and even Primary Spotter (AS 1v0CV). 

The Temporary "perma-spot" from Radars is sure annoying nowadays; now recall the days CVs were prevalent across all tiers.. Now add in Radar. 

Wish I still had my upper tier CV from cbt right now.
