Are the French Cruisers the coup de grâce for non-RU DD?

I've watched some streams with the first sneak peek of the French Cruisers and after all the nerfs to DDs am i really concerned that we will see no more DDs that are not RU. The high tier french cruisers with speed flag and boost outrun Gearing, Fletcher and a couple of other IJN/German DDs. This is especially important for late game, when you get closer to enemy ships to torp them and things like this. If you dare to get within 7-8km range of a french cruiser and this sucker has RPF you are pretty much dead, because he will catch you faster than you can imagine.

 

This game is less and less fun to play from a DD captains point of view. There are already Cruisers and even BBs that almost catch up to Gearing/Fletcher and other slow high tier DDs, but the French Cruiser easily outrun these DDs and there is nothing you have to defend yourself as DD. All that is left is long range torpedo spam in most cases.

In 1vs 1 French cruiser could be a threat, obviously that's normal for cruiser to be a threat for DD.

 

Now, since they had weak armor, they probably cant start to chase a DD everywhere on the battlefield or they will be raped by BB or other cruisers. though.

Most mid tir are slower than some BBs and Need the Speedbost to be as fast as some Cruisers of other nations. They are also very fragile. they also do not have Radar just mmoling up let them Thing twiche about pushing up. a Moskwa is MUCH more dangerous to DDs than a frensh cruiser.

Mon ami, you worry too much, always make sure you have an escape plan, and make sure that allies are not too far away, if you insist on going more than 20km from ally ships, then your problem is your own.
