Sounds like OP met a Flat Pack.

That, or some nearby cruisers were closer than was realized.

Other than the Ikeas; the rest of the DDs aren’t that difficult to attack, as long as they’re alone.

How much damage you’ll actually do, and how many planes it will cost to make such an attack is its own issue.

@Estimated_Prophet I have no idea what a flat pack is, but no there was no other ships around, it was a Halland ALONE. He launched torps and missed most of them and then went to work with his guns, I closed the distance quickly and got within gun range but they had almost no effect and his AA was so strong I couldn't do much in the air,  hence my grievance.

Welcome to the forums.  Just a bit of advise, when you format your message in all caps and use expletives that get automatically edited no one will take you serious.  The more intelligent thing would have been to go on the forums and ask if anyone has any advice as to counter the issues you're having.  Trust me, there are a lot of players out there that could help you.  I know a Midway never has any problems deleting me when I'm in a DD, no matter which Tier X DD I use.

Exactly what you just said. The Flat Pack/IKEA/Swedish/(so called)Pan European destroyers are infamous for the effective nature of their AA.

Especially the higher tier DDs. They’re like Atlanta and Cleveland used to be. You just don’t go near them.

You gotta learn how to fly simply put. When you hear "taking fire!" And the AA fire warning pops, IMMEDIATELY hold down A or D until the first 2 sets of clouds pop, then switch to the other button as that second flak cloud pops, and again, and again until you can line your shot up. Practice in the training room will really help, cause you can easily get paired up against really good players in random tier X.

 

Also, do not really on the secondary guns of a non German CV to hit a DD. They can hit cruisers but the cruiser needs to be down to 1000 health.

Clearly something has gone very wrong in the events leading up to the point that your raging at your CV's secondary guns inability to fight off an enemy dd that manage to get into their firing range

Sweet CV player tears, keep them coming. Meanwhile they don't see the irony that they are able to freely attack other players without retaliation until a DD gets up close and personal. Then they expect to be able to just be immune to DD attacks with mega super secondaries. Talk about entitled and lazy player base.

Halland is a CV hard counter. One of the few. 

OP, the way you feel now is how every other dd in the game feels when your planes whiz out of nowhere, pummel it for thousands of health, then return in a few minutes to do it again. 

CV are so strong against DDs its silly and I say this as a CV/DD driver. Fortunately they are experimenting on how to balance things out.

Halland is a great AA destroyer, but it's more of a hard counter against potato CVs, because really good CV players dump on me in Halland just as well as they would if I was in Kleber with a crippled engine and no DCP.

imagine complaining about the most broken mechanic in the game.

 

CV planes are way OP vs DDs - between the spotting and the insane damage that can be done with impunity. GARBAGE!
