So, the next Clan Battles will be TX with Carriers.

Some players that I respect told me that Halland will be better than Smaland because he is a more torp boat, torps are unavoidable, etc. And Smaland which has 2 fewer torps (and less torp speed and reload speed) is worse for this 7v7 with CV battles.

Torps have the same low damage (10700), Smaland having 3+5 and Halland being 5+5.  Smaland has 16% faster gun fire and radar.

So, is this true? Halland much more recommended than Smaland in this kind of battle?

Also Halland has better AA.   One thing that will really decide what the DD roles are is whether they do the ship restrictions again.  IF ships like Venezia and Petro get restricted you might see more options for DDs. Once those kind of killers are restricted then you might see more then 1 DD .

Problem is when you run into multiple marceaus in a wolf pack, halland will melt. It's slow.

I doubt Marceaus will be running in packs with any success outside of breeze and gale. For one CVs will be present . For two you have Venezias , Petros , Nevkies which have high muzzle velocity and slay DDs. In ways that T9 cruisers simply don’t do.

My predictions:

Banned after the first pass: FDR, yes it's not a good CV in many players' hands, but in good hands the thing is just stupid especially now that the MvR's been nerfed pretty hard. 

Restricted to 1: Marceau, Kleber, Petro, Stalin, Venezia, Goliath or whatever 'easily' spammed flavor of the season ship that's developing...

They won't ban a carrier. I bet day 1 is smaland and petro.

That will cause A LOT of salt to be throw from the playerbase. 

However, if they do ban FDR,  even at nerfed MvR in the hands of good player can be nearly as bad, and makes some otherwise good ships like DM and or even Staly too vulnerable.  

Until they town down CVs for CB, the CV driver will have a broken amount of influence on the game.

....and how they be toned down?

I dunno ....hard to think of a good solution...but a quick thought might be a 40% regeneration penalty

While they might have day 1 restrictions, I don't see them outright banning any ship day 1 since CV's can shrek any surface ship at the start of the game, Petro is tech tree and commonly available and Smaland has team play to contend with as opposed to what you see in randoms / ranked.

It's going to be the same thing it was the last time we did this at Tier X with Carriers. 

MVR (Though with FDR out now it's a strong contender)
Ohio/Thunderer
Petro/Stalin
Petro
Petro/DM
Yoshino
Halland
Halland/Smaland


Or we'll get these funnybuns that like doing 7 Klebers and Marceaus

Both Halland and Smaland works well depending on which role you prioritize.

Halland is better at torping and has considerable AA to threaten all but FDR planes 

Smaland is better at dodging due to her speed boost. Radar can also deny caps and she wins the rare 1v1 DD fight.

Unless there is some real hard ship restrictions it is going to be a rough meta.
