Did the cv changes go into effect? Is it worth playing t4 dds and weak aa ships again?

As above. Can I dodge cv strikes in a dd consistently yet by turning into them?

You.. already could?

DD's have been doing that for the past like month I've spent playing the game. A DD vanishes from the carriers's view halfway through the plane's turn, and it takes longer to charge up a rocket attack than it does to pass over a DD after sighting it.

A CV player has to guess where you went and initiate an attack run on that location while you're still invisible. What more do you want?

Dunno, T4 planes are slower. More time to target, needs to be tested.

Sorry I screwed up, no new changes for dd's just these:

 

World of Warships Anniversary

With the release of Update 0.9.8, World of Warships passes the threshold of its fifth year!

This time, the festive frenzy is inspired by naval history. The game will feature plenty of new and engaging content to mark the occasion, including a revamped Designer's Table Port, a permanent campaign titled "Five Epochs of the Navy" plus a collection of the same name, a new Dockyard, and fresh first-win bonuses. You can also try out a new battle type—Asymmetric Battle!

The collection and new permanent campaign are both dedicated to the history of shipbuilding.

The Five Epochs of the Navy permanent campaign features 50 tasks spread across 5 missions.

Reward for completing the campaign: an Epoch permanent camouflage, which can be applied to the majority of Tier IX ships.

The Five Epochs of the Navy collection is made up of five sections, with six elements in each. Each section is dedicated to a specific era in the history of shipbuilding. Elements of the collection can only be obtained from the same-name containers. The exchange rate of duplicates for missing elements is 1:1.

Five Epochs of the Navy containers will be available during the campaign of the same name. Each container will drop an element from the Five Epochs of the Navy collection, as well as other rewards.

Reward for completing the collection: an Epoch permanent camouflage, which can be applied to the majority of Tier IX ships.

Asymmetric Battle

During the first two festive weeks of the World of Warships Fifth Anniversary, you can try out a new temporary battle type—Asymmetric Battle—with a differing distribution of ships and tiers between teams.

Historically, encounters at sea have typically involved opposing sides with an unequal number of ships on each side. The new battle type offers a new game play experience in near-real naval combat conditions.

In an Asymmetric Battle, a team of four to six Tier VII–VIII ships will confront a team of eight to twelve ships of Tiers V–VI. Helming Tier VII–VIII ships in an Asymmetric Battle will require a new temporary resource called Battle Tokens.

Battle Tokens can be obtained by participating in Asymmetric Battles. The number of Tokens you get from each battle depends on the tier of ship you helm—the lower the tier, the more Tokens you can get.

This way, you'll be able to participate in an Asymmetric Battle with lower and higher-tier ships for a more immersive experience in the new battle type.

Dockyard

In Update 0.9.8, players will be able to build a new U.S. Tier VIII cruiser — VIII Anchorage. The rules of the new Dockyard are in many ways similar to those applied to the Hamburg Dockyard, but the list of rewards for completing the shipbuilding phases has changed. For example, completing phase 12 will bring you 100,000 Free XP Free XP.

  • The construction process of the Dockyard comprises 20 phases.
  • Each shipbuilding phase can be completed by finishing the Directives of the event, or by spending 1,750 doubloons Doubloons per phase.
  • Event Directives will span two updates — 0.9.8 and 0.9.9, and the Dockyard itself will remain in your Ports until the end of Update 0.9.10.
  • In total, you can complete 18 out of 20 shipbuilding phases by finishing Directives.
  • Anchorage and her National camouflage, along with a 10-skill Commander, Port slot, and commemorative flag, await you upon completing the 20th phase.

If you decide to complete shipbuilding at the Dockyard by using doubloons Doubloons, you can still progress through the Directives. However, in that case, instead of the usual rewards for completing the shipbuilding phases, you'll get 600 Research Points Research Points for each completed phase. If you have not yet opened the Research Bureau, you'll get access to it immediately with the first Research Points you earn.

Victory Bonuses

In Update 0.9.8, players will be able to receive a festive bonus for their first victory in the Update, secured on every ship starting from Tier V. List of Rewards

  • Tiers V–VII: 2x World of Warships Anniversary camouflages
  • Tier VIII: 1x Gift container
  • Tier IX: 2x Gift containers
  • Tier X: 1x supercontainer

Ranked Battles

Update 0.9.8 kicks off a new Season of Ranked Battles. You can expect to play Tier X ships in an 8 vs. 8 format.

Other Changes

The visual display of fog in the game has been enhanced by adopting an updated spacial distribution system and adding a scattered sunlight effect. Apart from improving the visual component, this change will also provide a slight improvement in the game client's performance.

"Naval Legends" audio recordings have been added to the pool of in-battle soundtrack options.

I just got done resetting both IJN dd lines during the german cv line release....

Dual t4 and t4/t6 carriers most matches.

Below tier 5 brutal.

.....

I'm at t5 with Pan European dd line.

Still seeing double CV's most matches...

On the road to slava..... 

So far it looks like US DD have it easier due to def aa.
