When everyone gets down the Rank 5, expect this.....its the post apocalypse all over again...

Need to Dodge, Duck, Dip, Dive and Dodge.

So predictable.  Gives me more motivation to go against the meta and try something different.

Seeing a prevalence of Kitas down in the low ranks already.  Hardly any cruisers at all.  Mostly DDs and maybe a battleship or two per team.

I've already had enough of Ranked this season.  Got the Marseilles flag, so I'm good.  Continuing just isn't worth it IMO.

If the meta was getting so strong that you were seeing 6v6 DDs, I don't think that I'd be running a BB.  But maybe a Neptune, radar or smoke, might be interesting.

I just mean a DD other than a Kitakaze.

I haven't played ranked yet this season, but this confuses me.

If DDs are everywhere and dominating the matches, why wouldn't people bring in fast-firing CLs(with radar/hydro preferably)to counter them and wreck face?

BBs would seem like the wrong ship to bring in this scenario.

In my limited experience in ranked so far this season, it a riot actually. Many dds, but many bad/newbie ones too. Non 19 point captains or poor skill selection.

RPF on a dd is mandatory for me in ranked, seen many who don't have it.

You just gotta pray you get the less of the potatoes.

Don't know but that's what I was seeing.

I was playing destroyers, btw.

I had luck with the z46, but I could only handle two ranks with it it's just gimping your team slightly less than a yugumo would.

But, jutland isnt as bad since the nerf, it just isnt as press mouse 1 to win dd fight anymore.

Chungmu radar works, but why when you could play a black.

This season is wack, but much easier for dd mains.

Because the simple truth is T9 CLs lose that firefight, particularly in a focus fire scenario. Kitakaze has vastly superior damage output, can go dark after the 20-30 seconds of radar, and is a much smaller target. The only "fast-firing" cruiser at T9, Seattle, has joke-level firing angles and terrible shell ballistics to boot. Donskoi has low HE DPM and a short duration radar; Neptune has only AP and can be angled against by DDs. CAs and supercruisers have it even worse.

Yup. Great all-arounder for the tier, but still sucks when you get the Kita rain in it. Or the JB overmatch up the butt.

DDs aren't DDs anymore. They are light cruisers without citadels. Throw in tier 9 and that means no CVs. Can't say I am really surprised by the DD invasion.

Oh. No biggie.  I have the Kita, but not a good captain to put in her.  And I don't want to spend the Elite Captain's XP to either move my Harugumo CO into her, or to create a brand new 19 pointer.  I've already spend a LOT of my ECXP recently and don't want to spend more willy nilly.   Besides, I'm more than comfortable running my Black or Benham in Ranked.

 They are the least powerful except for a few

Most influential maybe
