I'm not sure if you know this, but there are other ships in the game.

 

Well, you don't seem to know the advantage of having an extra battleship or cruiser after twice the number of battles, so I'm not sure you're in any position to say anything.

yes and there also ways to bait the radar...

 

lol yeah clearly in a non-cv game having a bb or a ca gives more advantages or more information than having an extra dd... :cap_haloween: that guy...

BBs and CAs have a lot more firepower than any DD. Sure, DDs may have torpedoes to even that out, but then you have one more sonar to pretty much eliminate that threat for a significant amount of time. Also, if you spot one ship, it doesn't get extra spotted if you have two DDs spotting that ship.

If they're too powerful if you only reduce it slightly, then you reduce it a little more. Problem with radar is that there's an all-or-nothing "skillfactor". If there's no radar, you don't need any skill for that. If there is any radar, you can't do it at all.

Offcourse you can still sit in smoke and fire from it. That's what I wrote before (see quote below), it's a matter of skillfully positioning your ship.

Even if you remove radar completely you'll need some skill (albeit a lot less).

And, just throwing this in here as well: using radar also requires skill in positioning of your ship and timing the usage.

What's the most important skill for those ships?

It is knowing how to position your smoke (and how to get to such a position undetected). If you position your smoke well (good exit strategy, good angling and moving of ship in relation to BB/incoming torps, position of enemy radar ships) you are extremely powerfull. The only way to get people in well positioned smoke screens is radar or a ship closing the distance. The latter being the dangerous option because that ship will have to expose itself to torpedoes from the ship in smoke and other ships.
