Make me love this DD, she seems to have a popular following among the experienced pro's, so what is so special about her?

 

Out of the tier 4 DD's the German one and the Shenyang are my go to ones

Clemson the OG sealclubber and statpadder. :crab:

Excellent firepower, good smokes, yolo-torp setup. What is not to like?

And a million torpedoes with US smoke.

If the Hosho didn't exist this would be the most broken OP ship at tier 4.

Compare and contrast to the Izyaslav and there's not a great deal of difference, I think a lot of Clemson's reputation comes from the fact that a lot of players have spare 10+ point USN captains that they can put on their tier 4 ship, which gives them a big advantage over other T4 DD players.

 

Also the ambush style gameplay works well at lower tiers so these two just work well at the tier.

Yep, that is exactly it. Just put a 19 point captain on the Clemson and "enjoy".

Reminds me: I really ought to go back and have another go with Clemson. I hated her the first time I played her, but that was one of my earlier DDs and I don't think I had a very good captain, plus - of course - I was even more rubbish then than I am now...

I recently played her with a 3 point and later a 6 point captain and she still rocks. Thus having said she grows stronger with a better captain, giving her an edge.

Clemson was a god.

I spent loads of time at low tiers because of this ship.

 

But T4 is a CV fiesta now... not fun anymore for me. But I feel the same with all tiers tbh at this stage...

The six guns are just silly, but I really liked the Russian and Pan Asian boats more.  5 guns and 9 tubers on the centreline is ridiculous. Shenyang on the other hand has long range torps and excellent speed. The guns are 5" and very flat shooting,  the same gun as the Nicolas.

There's a reason they call this thing the "clubson". Even years of powercreep hasn't affected her that much and you can utterly wreck everybody with the tools you have especially if you are in mind to go clubbing so to speak.
