FDR should be recalled with steel refunded. It is a ship that makes nobody happy.

I think the forum has seen enough complaints from the receiving end, but as someone who owns the ship, I'd also like to point out how frustrating this ship is to play and how little influence it has over a match. It is not only me, @Ahskance also mentioned in his stream that he dislikes FDR. 

Since this ship is not liked by either side, I hope WG may consider recalling it and refund people who bought it steel.

Yeah well Ahskance said we should enjoy the feeling of being builled by CV's so I take his words with a bucket of salt.

Oh I agree with this.  It's just great fun to be in a game where the CV focuses on you......and even double the fun when there are 2 CVs on each team.....so enjoyable.

Ohhh I had a game today. In my T7 DD. Double CV game. Askance just happened to be div'd with a super unicum CV player (not solo I noticed). We all had so much fun. Watching ships get double teamed left and right. My fave was shooting down a total of 2 rocket and 3 fighter planes as his T8 CV Super Unicum buddy rinsed my DD. Great times.... Maybe I just didn't dodge hard enough...... or stick with "AA Cover".... not that there was much team left to do that with....

I've been enjoying this turned based table top game for 4 years, how about yourself?

What is it exactly that you don't like about the FDR ?   From the receiving end it feels OP.  From the stats displayed on maplesyrup it is the most powerful CV ( i know, i know mostly better players have it).  It  was also the only other pick I constantly saw as a clan battle CV.     It seems so powerful to me that its right now my target as the next steel ship to buy.    So why shouldn't I spend my  steel on it ?

What I understand from Ahskance is that it’s more of a damage farming CV than a team CV. But I’m also of the belief that if you farm enough damage, you kill the red team. However, I’m thinking the German and Japanese AP bombs is what really influences the match. 
 

I’m in the same boat though. I was planning on getting the FDR as my next steel ship. Now I have to consider the Somers since it’s going away.....and the Plymouth might be a great CB ship.

So because you don't like the ship you expect it to be fully refunded? Yeah that's not how that works.

No thanks.  I love my FDR.

Of course you do, it's one of the most overpowered and ridiculous ships in the game. Might as well give it F-18s or cruise missiles.

This isn’t a row boat, we don’t need an oar.

F-18s AND cruise missiles! :Smile_playing:

To be fair, Damage Farmers love it.  I'm not a damage farmer though, so I get constantly annoyed when I need to help with a situation and the cartoonishly large hammer of the FDR is too unwieldy to be of assistance.

I like MVR better, citadel damage is unhealable. (almost)

200k damage in MVR = win

300k damage in FDR = lose

On Battleships, yeah.  It's 10% healable.  33% on cruisers, so less than standard but more than expected.

Don't forget that Torpedoes to Torp Protection counts as citadel damage, so the FDR has more of it then you might think.
