I like to play DDs as my games don't last too long and it's not boring as playing with slower ships. So I would just go straight at the enemy, shooting my guns and trying to evade his salvos, when I come close (less than 3 km) I would move sideways and fire my torpedoes and than run while I fire more guns. So what DD nation line is the best for this tactic?

Besides that your tactic is exactly what DDs shouldn't do (you should also spot targets and contest caps). I'm suggesting you the Russian DD line, as they have short range torpedoes.

Shimakaze with F3 torps but in co-op !!   Dont try this in random :etc_red_button:    My personal best it's 1037 base XP in co-op  :crab:

If you're dying quickly in DD games, you may well be doing it wrong (says he who often dies too early too): although it's fun to charge the enemy with a view to beating him to death with his own shoes, you aren't helping your team much by doing so.

 

If you can stay alive longer, you have a greater chance of being able to help win the vision battle, bag late caps, finish off wounded ships, and so on; generally, the team which loses all its DDs early will probably lose the game.

 

That's not to say that you should hide on the periphery of the battle spamming torps, but rather that you should chose your moments to break stealth carefully - it is often the case that more valuable (to your team) play doesn't necessarily involve your doing damage the whole time.

 

Very aggressive DD play can be a hoot, but often will harm your team in PvP modes. As others have said, Coop can be glorious for this sort of thing (take mostly basic consumables as that reduces the cost in silver), so perhaps use that to get your 'fix', and try and play more conservatively in PvP (and Ops).

if you do want to do this in randoms - grab a Clemson and stick with it. You're not gonna get anything better suited for the job further up anyway...

2x3 launchers on both sides, reasonably fast especially for its tier, small target, very good firepower to kill enemy DDs with - and most importantly, you're at T4 so you have "protected matchmaking" including smaller maps (the fact that it's currently more of a shark tank full of Hoshos notwithstanding).

The T7 IJN 'dakka line' DD, with TRB build is hilarious for this sort of thing, BTW.

I do that sometimes, but this is more fun :D Its not about short range torpedoes, its more about lot of HP, fast and deadly torpedoes

How ironic that there is a thread right next to this one attempting to explain why WoWs creates toxicity.

Because this one basically sums it up in a short and concise manner.

The best dd in the game for random, IMHO by a long long way is :- 

 

Atleast BBs would have fun if he yolos in with a Harugumo :Smile_teethhappy:

Because if you play the way you say you do, your team will hate you? And in coop this would actually work so...

British ones. You'll like Valkyrie, and Tier III is great for zooming around shooting things without any particular regard to tactics (although you should try and learn if you want to progress up the Tiers). At low Tiers you have lots of choice, though - Japanese, American, Russian ones are all fun to play.

Do you play the games to do chores or to have fun? In random games I NEVER rely on team mates. If they support, great. If they dont, well it was expected. When ever I counted on team in WoWS or WoT, I got obliterated.

What issue with that Hargumo? It does work in randoms like 50% of the time but it more often work in lower tires than in higher. Hence shorter match times :D

Yeah, Valkyrie is surprisingly fun

You may have already got higher tier ships.... but I think that Tier III/IV is about as high as you can get with YOLO tactics. Sometimes it works at higher tiers with very fast ships, but most times you'll just get shredded and die, much to everyone's annoyance. You could try the big Russian destroyer, Okhotnik, as she has the firepower to make that sort of run worthwhile, at a Tier where it can work (ish, and probably only once per game).

Till you get fullpenned by BBs in your lumbering DD and die.

The thing I pointed out above.

If you just don't give a damn about team and want to yolo, play coop. Because you can't go and say "i cannot rely on team" in a thread where you openly disregard your team. At least try to do it in a battle type where you aren't screwing over 11 other players hard.

 

Also, french DDs are likely the ones most suited to yolo rushes as described, due to:

  • High speed
  • special saturation mechanics
  • short-ranged high speed high damage torps

Exactly people who play like you are the reason why others don't count on team mates. The ''fast playstyle'' you are talking about is completely useless. You know you can also be useful as DD and not die in the first 5 minutes of the match right? You are the problem not your team.

 

Reconsider your ''play style'' and you might improve. But reading your comments show me this is a lost case.

Fun for me in this game is winning and actually grabbing a decent result. If all you want to do is to yolo ships and pump them full of torpedoes then play coop, because in that mode it actually works. The reason you get obliterated is because you try to pull of suicide tactics against people with more than one braincell and thus throw away one of your teams DD's and contributing heavily to the loss.

 

Alternatively stick to tier 2-3, because from what I can gather the gameplay down there is just the same as coop.
