Alternative Buff for USN DDs 0.9.6

With 0.9.6 on the way, a change for the USN DDs is likely.

0.9.6 - DFAA continuous damage increase from 50% to 75%. (proposed change)

If WG want people to start taking DFAA over speed boost, they should instead just put DFAA in a separate slot. As speed boost will always be useful, where as DFAA isn't.  I can't imagine it would hurt to give these poor DDs a little bit more utility.

What do you think?

We've always used DFAA over Speed Boost, or "got gud" enough to know how to smoke to avoid and use our normal AA. 

The actual USN DDs would be in a good place now imo. Even if a base increase of speed would be nice. It'd be better to increase base speed +2knots than make both consumables available. 

Its more that the crazy fast ships, IT cruisers, FR cruisers should be toned down a bit. 

The most impactful buff would be to reduce damage from CV rocket planes to DDs.

Power-creep has hurt the USN Line and this is my suggestions.
 

  1.  Decrease detection form .2 to .4 depending on tier for surface detection and .5 to 1.0 for air
  2.  Increase ROF on Gearing and Fletcher by 5% base
  3.  Increase speed by 1 to 3 knots

All in all, all lines need adjustments due to power-creep, but nothing major just brought up to where the paper ships are.

The USN DD line will be power crept upon again once the Italian DDs come out with their SAP guns......I can see it already.

Problem is the US line was introduced back when there were only 2 lines  and people actually argued real ship capabilities. They got frozen in this "reality" zone while new lines were added, mostly from the Twilight Zone.

Please do not insult Twilight Zone..... this is more like Movie Macabre  Without the Mistress of Darkness.

According to some people in this forum, there is real USN bias. They would probably scoff at the idea of buffing USN ships. 

However, as a longtime USN DD player, I welcome any and all buffs for techtree DDs.
