It is not exactly a "destroyer" but a "counter-destroyer", I mean, she was designed to hunt classic destroyers.

It is a good ship, but in hih tiers is not as powerful as a Guepard or Jaguar are. Play it the same and you will succeed.

Next ship (Fantasque) is really a huge step forward, much faster and better guns.

It's performance relies on exploiting the Speed boost to get into advantageous positions, then using the reload booster and good torpedoes to do some damage.

You will suffer if a CV focuses you and no smoke can be a deal breaker.

I ended up free exp'ing past the last 20k exp or so on her. 

Sure you can win any one on one knife fight with a DD. Outside of that, the shells are way too floaty to be much use without closing and becoming an easy target. 

It was a very stressful DD to play. Fantasque is so much better.

Not really -- at her tier, there are DDs just as fast, but they can smoke up to break detection.  They presented little trouble in ranked brawl and were worthless IMO.  If you play the French light cruisers "dds" then countering them and negating their reload boost makes them easy targets.

Crap detection and no way to break it combined with mediocre guns considering what they give up for them.....nope.  Typical fashion, T8 is where they start to get into their own.  It's rather funny that the special captain that came out at the same time doesn't have the 2 better options that the other premium french commander does, faster turret and enhanced adrenal rush, both of which are musts on french light cruisers "dds"

Good is a subjective evaluation.   For all the reasons cited above, she is a challenging ship to play.   That being said, I enjoyed my time with her and found her to be very effective when I didn't hit the potato button so I would call her a good DD.  It takes a different set of tactics and more pre-planning of engagements than other DDs but when played to her strengths she is fierce.
