Premium or Tech Tree?

I'm still a noob in Ships but I'm having fun playing some premium Tier 5 DDs lately. I kinda want to stick around at Tier 5.

The war canu is always the fav.. 

The Pan asia DD is a good one..

The USSR Pod..


Not much selection, in over power or over capable DDs in tier 5... All the other DDs require a bit more work under specialized training to perform well.

Kamikaze or clone (Kami-R, or Fujin)   These aren't currently available. 

Okhotnik might be the best available.  The issue you may be facing is facing tier 7 ships, and games with tier 6 and/or multiple CVs.

Yeah I bought the Okhotnik a week or two ago. It's a fun ship. The guns on it are fairly useless and the ship is unnecessarily long. I just enjoy waiting for my chance to dump a bunch of torpedoes. 

I've pretty much been told to go USN or IJN.

I love my Kami clones.  But oddly enough, I don't really like being top tier in them because I prefer avoiding the smaller maps that come with tier 5  being top tier.  Overall, the Kami clones are probably the best torp boat DDs at tier 5.

As for the Okhotnik, I'm not so sure that it's all that great.  It's very lot RoF makes it terrible in DD vs DD duels.

The Hill is a pretty good premium USN DD at tier 5.

Hot is Roosian Kitakami.

Guns slow traversing as heck, but so many of them. Maybe no good at DD duels, but it has its place.

God help anyone who lets one get close and ambush them out of terrain.

Guess I agree about Hill. It certainly let my play more to how I like to use DDs, (60% wr - 5 games,) unlike Visby; which I quickly grew to loathe, (20% wr - 5 games,) thanks to glacially slow gun traverse, and torpedoes competing with Ise’s for worthlessness.

Of older DDs, my favorites were the Kamis and Nicholas. Newer, I’ve liked Pod.

Kamikaze clones the ones that are basically a pre-nerf Minekaze.

Kamikaze R is the all around best for sure.

Best? What is this notion? 

The one I had most fun with was Mutsuki.   It did take me a lot of games to warm up  to her, but she was so much fun. I have not played 5 and 6 in the CV meta, although, most of the time, the CV risks to DDs seem overstated.   It is that one CV game out of eight or ten that we remember with dread.

Kamikaze clones / Fujin.

If WG ever does Tier V Ranked again, you'll see all those specific DDs come out of the woodworks.  They are the only thing that will try to keep Giulio Cesare from completely taking over.
