Hi, Im new to beta and going up USA destroyer line.  Which are considered the better ones and which the worst?  I have limited space in port and only want to keep 2 or 3 out of the 9.  Which should I keep?  I am at the Clemson and bought Simms for access and like it a lot.  I will prob reach Mahan or Benson by Sunday.

I like the Clemson, the double barreled 102mm (4inch) guns can ruin another destroyer's day. Its fun taking on two Kongos, sinking one and brutalizing another.

Keep a mid tier ship, you get into more battle, with less wait in que. The higher in tier you get, the longer you have to wait.

Nicholas and Benson are my favorites in the line so far.  Nicholas has got 6 torpedoes on each side, very useful if you're surrounded - and Benson has decent guns and the 6.4km/65knot torpedoes are good as well.

Ive decided to only play usa ships in this game, unlike WOTs where ive played over 200 so i did not get bundle.

I kept the Nicholas and Mahan.

 

Currently on Benson. 

 

My Mahan captain will be going on the Fletcher, but I will be keeping the ship.

everyone kind of bad mouths the Mahan but once you learn it it's pretty powerful

I have liked them all starting at the Wickes up to the Mahan, I've got enough xp/freeXP for the Benson but have not researched it just yet though. From the start though, the Mahan became a favorite mine right from the first battle, Nicholas is a close second. Wickes holds a special place for me since I have a family connection to one of them dating back to the Neutrality Patrols in 1941.

Since i already sold the Sampson and Wicks because Clemson felt better after just a couple games its good to know my instincts were good after only playing game for 2 days.  

 

I could ask under a dif thread, but once u have a target selected for torps but u want to chg to dif target whats the best way?

Gearing tier 10.  Why? Cause you get 16km torps which opens up the possibility of longer torp attempts (similar to Japanese style of dd).  The guns are NASTY and can ream other dd and even bangedup cruisers.

I do my best work in the Nicholas...that ship is just a beast.  I think I sold all my lower tier DD.  I have the Faragut, and have had a couple of good games in it.  But nothing consistent.  Really want to get into the top tier though, they all sound fun.
