Also CTL + J in battle will disable and re-enable the UI, used to be CTL + G, but they mapped something to G at some point and had to change it.

Hmm, wait! That little black dot above the "W" in Warships I spy. Is that a NERF BAT? :Smile_hiding:

NERF BAT

Aah, the dreaded nerf bat. One bite - JUST ONE - from its toxic fangs can reduce powerhouse ships to emasculated simp barges, screaming and wetting themselves in terror in A1 or J10. :Smile_trollface:

My first thought was "Oh that's just a spec of something on @Lert's monitor."  My second thought was...nothing really, I was laughing at myself too hard.

One of the worst T9 DDs...

Really? Higher winrate, higher average XP and higher average damage than Fletcher, a ship consistently called a great T9 destroyer here.

As much as I have read about the ships, people and engagements related to ABDACOM, it was a bit sobering to see de Ruyter sitting in Rotterdam port today.

You really don't see the problem with comparing your personal performance in one ship to the global average in another ...?

If you're just here to rag on a ship, please go somewhere else. Like, seriously.

How about this:

1) Bad acceleration and speed in general so you can be rushed by cruisers and battleships without fear. Dodging torps could also be a problem.

2) Poor penetration so your only hope to deal damage to even slightly armored ships is to cause fires.

3) Low HP and no heals so open water gunboating is too expensive.

4) Very floaty shells so guns lose effectiveness even at moderate ranges.

5) No speed boost and poor speed in general which means you can kill sneaky dds only when their captains do grave mistakes. And god forbid meeting Kitakaze.

6) No torps means that you just scout and allow enemy team to push. The moment you smoke to use guns your targets go dark. It's a nightmare to be the only DD on your flank.

Basically this DD is a very light cruiser; the only good thing is relatively high dpm but it's value is diminished by a lot of other factors.

It's a DD killer for crying out loud. You go in a cap and you wreck all the other DDs. You out gun them, your guns have amazing firing angles and almost lift the ship out of the water they spin so fast. You have smoke, you have hydro, seriously, what else do you want it to do for you? Make you a cup of tea?

So you enter the cap with 6.4 conceal and get outspotted by all IJN, USN and EU dds. What's next? You can't hit speed boost and force the engagement--they have speed boost and can run away. Or smoke up at least. And your hydro is only 5km. Now you have two options: retreat and stay spotted by these dds or smoke up and cap. The next thing coming is a flood of torps which you may not be able to dodge because of the poor handling.

Did you spot Soviet or French dd? Good luck landing shells on them after 10km. But they will be hitting you much more comfortably at range so quality>>>quantity in this case.

Did you just spot Kitakaze? I won't be so sure who will win the trade.

You are an odd duck. You turn up like a bad penny any time anyone mentions Friesland, which I don't understand. It's in your top ten most-played ships for some reason, but you're worse than average with it while being an above-average player overall. You do better in Fletcher, but haven't played Fletcher nearly half as much, and also do poorly in several highly respected destroyers. Maybe it's just not your ship, like Estimated Prophet and his hatred of Fiji. Lord knows we all have some ship that just doesn't click with us. There are hundreds of ships in the game, I think you'll live without dumping on the people who like this one. It's OK to be in the minority of people who don't like a ship.

So that's the thing: I've played most of these games recently trying to improve initial 52% WR and went down as a result. I was just stunned how poorly it performs for me. I was switching between two captains--one full gunboat 21pt Swirski and another 18pt designed for range; both don't work.

I mean yes--there were occasional bright moments where I was able to catch torp boats pants down or sit in smoke and harvest broadsides with AP but in most games Friesland is countered hard by other DDs and BBs now are fully specced for survivability and just refuse to burn down. 

I see how this ship could shine in div but solo...

To be honest I would expect TT Fletcher to be lower in those categories than a much lesser played freemium ship. But @dimzzy should add the “for me”, as it would seem that Friesland doesn’t jive with his playstyle. 
 

For me it’s Scharnhorst and Richelieu - I am terrible in those otherwise good ships. I’m not much better in Friesland, so I do feel his pain.
