I have been playing this game for a while. I don't think I am a good or even mediocre player. 

But lately the game has been balanced so that dd's aren't usefull anymore. AA is non existent, even the Kidd is practicly useless. 

Capping is no longer possible, radar and CV power combined makes any cap impossible. Is there any reason to keep playing this obviously dead class?

DDs are kinda obsolete, but they aren't dead.

Because (un-)fortunately most CV players are too pepega to kill them off.

Up untill tier V you may have a point, but higher tier WG treats DD's as xp pinata's for radar ca's and cv's

if i am a very very good dd player when there is a cv in the match regardless if senpai noticed me or not, can i still be useful for the game? i mean, i don't have 12km radar, but i can stealth torp when i can, right?

Depends on how good the enemy CV is.

Yes and usually encountering an actually threatening CV player in the enemy team happens maybe once a month sadly. I'm getting rusty with my counterplay because of that.

Of course it matters. Problem is you are lacking what matters that's why it feels dead to you.

To be a bit more precise:

This is Flambass, one of my favorite streamer. Obviously he is a very good player, but this is not the point.

The point is, how easy a at least mediocre CV player can pull a game the right way.

And as Flambass said: 3,5 minutes to ruin the DDs day without a lot of chances for the DD to do something against it.

 

So long story short: DD are not dead, but sure it is a lot more work to compte in DD nowadays

 

My opinion ...

Thats the case for anyones interaction with CVs tho :) 

Against the other classes, DDs still have the highest carry potential

Still very much the most decisive class in every tier, except when you encounter a good CV player. Bad CV players you can work around just like radars.

DD's are still very much alive and still have a high level of influence. They require more effort and experience to do well in. Not ones average potato vessel, yet lots try ^^

Even potato CV, no matter how incapable they are with lining up strikes can effectively cancel lolibotes with spotting. Granted, that also requires teammates to try and to shoot said lolibote, but when it happens, its always the red ships doing the shooting:cap_tea:

Yeah. If it were just me, I could incline to agree with you. 

Fortunately, after playing for about five six years, you tend to notice when the game changes. It has changed. DD's have less of a place on the sea, cv's and radar do. 

Not just according to me. 

 

I don't mind if you tell me I suck at playing dd's but you can't say Flambass sucks at dd's for instance, or flamu. Or that Jingles is flatout wrong. If you have any arguments, i'd love to discuss them.

Being a BB main/jack of all trades, my best T10 stats are with DDs, played recently. I'd like to play more BBs, but DDs can win more. Also in most games I see four DDs per side.

Because cv's are limited per match :)
