    I had fun in Tash. Speed, guns, and annoyance. Enemy too busy being annoyed by me and ends up getting screwed when they try to kill me. Not everything in this game is about damage.

    ahh but there in lies the flaw. CV's wont waste time hunting dds, dds wont waste time spotting or hunting dds. Then you must play a radar ship. I hate this logic and highlights probably one of the biggest flaws of this games mechanics.

    Kind of a flawed apples to oranges logic train here, but I get where you are going. I did state it would get to dictate engagements because that is one of the main advantages to a dd, the down side, which you are underscoring, A cruiser wants to shoot at dds. It has the best return on attack of any other target in the game. Now like any new ship there will be a learning curve for it and against it. I mean it didnt take long for people to realize that the daring had a massive glaring flaw in its AP DPM so Im less inclined to see this thing getting more then 2 salvos per ambush before being forced to retreat. If it can get more then 3 citadels I would consider that remarkable. Im not sure I called it trash. I said it would end up a meme, but never trash. I tend to avoid this as some ship people say are bad like Colorado, I actually enjoyed and did rather well in. I will admit though when Kleber was shown I initially was not a fan till I played it and I was able to return to a playstyle I long missed. And then WG SAID NO. So Yes you are 100% right that judging before test driving tends to bandwagon bitching, it also creates and environment to be pleasantly surprised like I was with the Kleber and eventually heart broken by WG. I would not say it is better then the Kliber or even soviet one. While yes it can do more damage via guns and concealment it lacks any other defense to survive after use of said guns. Both khaba and kleber have speed and the khaba can take a heal or a smoke. Having a dd whose primary weapon is its guns not have a defensive measure that isnt a broken commander skill not yet introduced feels like a bad idea.

    and both examples have smoke, and Kleber can go really fast as a defensive measure. This has no defensive measure other then the fact it doesn't have a citadel.

    6.6 is not that great tbh. I mean its not Khaba levels of bad but puts it on par with the Kleber. At least that thing can get a damage spike via a consumable.

    Yes when I play a dd, no because I play more cruisers and I can only shoot what I can see.

    60mm is the best at current. Yeah dispersion and shell velocity are amazing dont get me wrong as a dd you can dictate when to take your shot and surprise another ship. Lets say you do and everything is a pen. That is 7.7k. If any of those overpen(which depending on arming thresholds and where you are aiming will probably happen a bit) you will get less. Against a cruiser yeah this thing will get 7k easy on the first salvo and if the cruiser opens up to get more guns to bear on you then yeah you can punish it and probably get a few citadels. If they turn bow in and front gun you however you are not gonna get much for it. Don't get me wrong I see many advantages in this. Now your whole focus has been about gun power. The problem is the moment you use your guns as a dd you are going to be lit up like a Christmas tree and most are gonna take a shot. This ship looks huge Thus you are gonna be punished for every shot. It has poor handling by way of ruder shift and turn circle and is pretty slow. Dazzle become damn near mandatory for this ship in order to survive. I get the idea this is meant to be another Ambush dd, but with no agility, speed, or defensive abilities what so ever I suspect this ship is gonna be hard press to become a mainstay and will end up a meme ship like others before it.
