Played my Lightning again today because of the Exeter missions where I have to set fires in a T6/8 and just couldn't believe how good this DD is. Got Daring for a while now, but playing Lightning again, for me it must be the ultimate DD. 

Now I first wanted to ask what other people think of this particular DD, but it would probably be more fun and interesting to ask what DD you love most in the game, looking at it tier for tier.

Haida would be a strong candidate for me, not because the she's the best (although she is pretty decent), but because she's one of the most interesting to play.

 

And you get secondaries, which is entertainingly ridiculous!

 

Feeling quite well-disposed towards Z-39 at the moment too, after coming second (I think) in a T9 battle with her yesterday evening...

2: Smith, because nonsensical 11s torp reload yo!

3: Derpski, because you can never have too many torp launchers

4: tough - Shenyang for raw power, Clem is always amusing, Isokaze for old times' sake (when it was still good, basically...)

5: Okhotnik just for the lolz. Kamikaze ain't bad tho.

6: T-61 is balancedtm

7: Eh... not much memorable here - Blyska used to be really good...

T8: Lightning, Kiev, Lo Yang, Kidd, good ol' Benson - toooo maaaaany chooooices!

T9: Fletcher or Udaloi. Those two would have to have a deathmatch for my heart... and I have no idea which I'd want to win.

T10: Grozovoi all day every day (at least for Clan Battles).

There are some close calls but if I have to choose only one per tier then:

 

T2 - Tachibana

T3 - Derzki

T4 - Clemson

T5 - Kami

T6 - Faraggut

T7 - Jervis

T8 - Cossack

T9 - Kitakaze

T10 - Not played lot of them, except YY in ranked. I loved but now is just shadow of its former self so ... Daring maybe?

Dunno if I can pick any single favourite on any tier, it depends on what I feel up to.

Below T5: probably ze germans (those forward firing torp tubes), although the Clemson is fun as well.

T5: I'd say Minekaze. Fun little torp boat for its tier. Podvoisky seems entertaining, but haven't played it enough to figure out if I really like it yet.

T6: I enjoyed my time in the Gaede, so probably that one. Gallant is nice as well.

T7: I don't know if any of them are real favourites. Maass was pretty good. Neither Shiratsuyu nor Akatsuki are terribly exciting. Haida's nice, but I have very mixed performance in her.

T8: I feel Z23 is interesting, quite challenging but good when I get her to work. Lightning and Cossack tend to give me better results, though. And of course there's Asashio for the troll factor :Smile_trollface:

Lightning is a decent and fun DD but won't have a chance in the contest of the top spot for Tier 8 as that spot is reserved for a certain other DD with her cute camo. :etc_hide_turtle:

 

But here is my List Tier for Tier:

Tier I: N/A

Tier II: Hands down V-25 for that Torpedojousting

Tier III: Blood sucking Vampire

Tier IV: Evil statpadder Clemson

Tier V: Fujin - I don't think I need to comment on this other that I am envious of the beautiful Fire and Ice camo of Kamikaze R....

Tier VI: Shinonome because she isn't as broken as T-61 i guess

Tier VII: Haida because dat moving smoke and concealment that even Tier VIII DDs with concealment mod would be proud of.

Tier VIII: see in the spoiler below because I don't want to spoiler when I gave such a teaser above. :Smile_hiding:

Tier IX: USS Black - dat smoke + Radar and on a Fletcher no less what is there not to love?

Tier X: Z-52 That choice was hard as Tier X is balanced very decently (except shima i guess :Smile_smile:) But Z-52 wins over Harugomo and the others because she carried me though Tier X Ranked with dem Hydro.

 

And the grand winner for Tier VIII is......:

Spoiler

 

2e4efb6c-fae6-11e7-b45c-d89d6715223c_120

meow :3 :cat_paw:

 

That camo is glorious and one of the two only permanent camos I bought using real money for. (the other is the Canada one on Haida)

Also that ship is as every premiumship should be, versatile and interesting to play. She offer not only one but three modes of different gameplay! :Smile_great:

 

 

.... Jeah I know lots of Premiums in that list... :Smile_hiding:

I like Lightning best of the British DD's.

I have Cossack and Jutland but they seem much harder work.

Derski is a right laugh with that mount of torps xD Got her in my port too permanently :)

 

Groz is a lovable DD?

Here in EU, I don't have many tiers of DDs nor do I have enough higher tier DDs on my NA account to be knowledgeable to have 'true' favourites.

With these caveats, I do have some favourites (some 'keepers') ;

T2) The V-25 (here & in NA) (it's just so much 'fun' to run & torp & even gun a bit, lol)

T3) The 'Derzki' (in NA) (see post #3 above)

T4) The Clemson (here & in NA) (see post #6 above)

T5) The Minekaze (in NA) (though it is not like it used to be)

T6) The Gnevny (in NA) (run & gun or is that gun & run?)

HSF Harekaze. Premium DD that was released as part of the High School Fleet cooperation. It's a bit weird in that it has three hull options that drastically change her play style, and it irritates the hell out of me that they didn't put her on sale for one last time before the cooperation ended.

somehow, that thing was an utter disappointment for me. Probably because I looked at it, thought "everything about this ship looks absolutely monstrous" - and then it never delievered anything above decent...

I'm not playing a lot of lower tier. Fof the lulz factor I'd say Iwaki Alpha best tier 4 DD. Even though it's a cruiser.

Tier 5 would go for Okhotnik.

6 is a hard choice. All DD are pretty similar. Shinonome since IJN gun buff is a pretty mean bugger tho.

Tier 7 I would go for Akatsuki. Easy to play and easy to perform in.

Tier 8 Harekaze obviously. It's a very great ship. Lightning and Lo Yang comes close behind.

Tier 9 would go for Jutland or Kitakaze.

Tier 10... I don't really know. I loved YueYang before it got the nerfbat. I have high hopes on Daring. I don't like both Khebab and Harugumo.

2. Smith, just for the ridiculous reload

3. Derzki, fast and furious

4. Isokaze, silent sneaky bastard.

5. Okhotnik, just pure evil in ambushes with all the torps. (played 1000 games in kamikaze and old minekaze, love them but they don't make me laugh out loud.)

6. T-61, such a bully

7. Shiratsuyu, 16 torps in under 10 seconds, smoke is for pussies.

8. Kagero, see above but with 5.4 k conceal. my BAE, my waifu.

9. Kitakaze, DAKA DAKA DAKA, taste the rainbow!

10. Minotaur ;)

 

As for OP's pick, Lighning is such a fun boat, nonstop finger dacing on the keyboard it'd be my second pick but Kagero, I can't cheat on my Kagero.

I think they just meant that the german DDs lose them as you go past T5, there's been nothing on the dev blog about changing the german DD line.
