I don't play BBs or CVs, strictly DD and cruisers.  My poor Smolensk was once a rock/porn star now is a neutered eunuch.  Actually I wouldn't mind the changes if they put our AA protection back to how it was.  I can deal with getting hammered by the BBs but not by CVs by all their planes in the manner the rocket planes devastate DDs.  Since I don't play BBs must be nice now that your firing accuracy is about 100%, damage has increased, and you can see 4000km. 

I must admit being primarily a DD player I am loving the changes but I don't want to only play DDs all the time.

I'll wait to give Yoshino another go.  It can't dodge well enough to survive the current skills.  Even at long range it is a sitting duck for BBs now.

Stopped playing them at Montecoliwatzit, though I have the Ducas and Gorizia; kind of liked Charles Martell, but haven’t ever cared much for H4. Grinding for its UU was kind of okay, but I don’t miss playing it after those missions went away on the 1st.

If I could aim worth a damn at those ranges, that might mean something to me.

Really have not messed with cruisers. DDs are fun and the new skills seem ok. BBs I just dunno. The one real nice thing is that there are now more DDs in play (seems like) and it helps that there are no close up secondary builds. Even CAs are staying away from the caps. This seems to make DDs more important than ever. Lose your DDs early and it is an up hill battle.

With Azuma, I have have not noticed a difference, but I try to be very careful.

T8 is working fine for me, pulled around 80% wr today in cruisers. A lot of DDs around for snacks.

Multiple games last night where I could not get close enough to a cap and completely melted down by CAs and HE spamming DDs.  Could not even stop it with Deadeye.

you should play all classes just to learn their perspective. When you know how to play bb, you know what makes them miss a ship, so as a cruiser or dd, you learn to behave the way to avoid bb fire, and so on.
