I am a very good destroyer player but I have noticed that playing destroyers are nearly unplayable, I have given them an honest try and played very carefully but planes spot you all game or push you out of smoke with plane torpedoes, then you get shot by multiple ships, the game just started and a lot of your health is missing you cant heal back. 

I hope they fix this because I have noticed a lack of dd's recently

great point, I can't think of anything at the moment, cv planes are very fast and spot you/strike you once the match starts, rockets are very accurate and very hard to dodge, capping is out of the question because of the abundance of radar ships and planes torping you out of smoke. i dont complain really about balancing but was hoping to bring it to the attention of WG.

Hoping WGs systems will notice too..... All they have to do is simply make the spotting of DDs by planes a bit more reasonable and it could solve a lot of constantly being spotted issues disappear.  Suboctavian has said they are watching close and will impliment necassary corrections.... Just praying that what ever they do they do it fast. Emphasis on fast.

I have even read the displeasure of WG Staff and CC's that they where not completely happy with this release either for reasons the community are telling them now... Guess the ball is in their court hipe they can get the situation under control before this becomes a major gaming news rant.

I'm not saying they should remove CVs, but they should remove CVs.

 

Spoiler

Oh, and OP premiums while they're at it :Smile_hiding:

Yet you are rocking with your DD's right now according to WoWS Stats & Numbers? If they really were almost unplayable your stats with them should have gone down and not up.

If OP means I high tiers I can’t relate.

For entirely person reasons it’s likely I don’t even have any sympathy, (for high tiers in general.)

That said; so far I’ve not had much trouble from carriers in the destroyer games I’ve played. No even playing much differently than I did before the game, and I hardly ever had trouble before the change.

If anything, my wr has gone up.

As I said in another thread, hyper aggression doesn’t work, escort and screening does.

Harder to spot DDs? It’s already so bad you can’t get and initial spot and still make a rocket attack...

Same thing before the change; it’s not like you can’t see them coming; if a destroyer keeps pushing after spotting planes, why is it the carriers fault the destroyer gets spotted???

For the record, I hardly EVER get spotted and harassed by carriers in my destroyers, yet somehow I still get wins.

playing dd's for 2 weeks since the rework will not greatly impact my stats for thousands of dd's battles. 

My stats may still be high due to the fact that i am playing so conservatively that i have to sit back in smoke away from the cap and hope my team kills enemy ships before i can attempt to torp/cap or do most the stuff a dd is supposed to do, but if I am doing poorly or just ok, i can imagine what an average dd player is going through right now. 

most dd's have pretty short range which means you cant sit back like a bb/cruiser to get damage, you have to push close which at this time is nearly impossible due to the reasons i mentioned in the first post.

secondly, when a game starts, rocket planes rush across the map to and strike dd's, a dd is either forced to waste a smoke without getting near a cap or sacrifice up to half its health or more depending on the cv player, the only viable solution i see is for a dd to stay back with the fleet for aa cover and wait for fleet to push a cap. 

This is a real issue, not just some guy who always plays dd's complaining in the forums :D

I was referencing your recent and last seven days stats.

How about a 45 second cooldown at start to ready planes?

Oh ok, I do not really check my stats that often but there are plenty of other points i made in my post above about the new difficulties of playing a dd, if they intend for dd's to stay within the fleet that is fine, but if a dd is with the fleet, it will be very difficult for torps or guns to reach anything, they just become an escort ships that gets spotting flags. DD's should not be hyper aggressive but capping/torping/shooting/screening are all functions of a dd and torping/shooting is out with the limited range and the current positions of friendly bb's/cruisers during the match.

In times like these there is only one answer, the only answer that is always there for you... COMMUNISM!!

And by that of course I mean Russian dds, getting spotted all the time? Open fire all the time. Getting harassed by rockets? You have a heal. Range? Not only that but also great ballistics. Low AA? Just use your speed to run back to your cruisers.

What I mean is that for now(and hopefully until tomorrow when the hotfix arrives) you should try a play style completely different, they call it CV rework but it is actually a complete game rework.

you are 100 percent correct, ive played groz already and been very satisfied but players should not have to play only 1 dd every match :(

prinz eugen aa spec/kutuzov aa spec - cant shoot down tier 8 planes before they do 20k plus to me, ridiculous, i hate to say it but sitting in back is the only viable strategy at this point.
