New USN Destroyers
« on: April 29, 2019, 09:52:01 pm »
So three new American Destroyers have been announced, at least on the dev blog. They are premiums, but I'm interested to see if they are for steel, coal, or even free xp like my Alaska. I do realize these are test ships right now, so these stats are more than likely going to change.
I am a little biased to the USN as thats all I play, but I do like USS Hill as a tier 5 premium destroyer. The USN has two tier 5 crusiers and a battleship, the destroyer completes the tier 5 premium line up.

But the tier 9 USS Benham, I don't know about since we already have Black but then again Black is for steel in the Armory. If I had Black, I could probably point out the differences between the two of them. I feel that Benham is just here for players who don't collect steel to get a tier 9 destroyer.

I feel like Somers is just there. No real purpose in-game, just there I guess as a different destroyer to have than Gearing.

I wish they'd go easy on the number of t9 and t10 premiums, some of the lower tiers deserve some attention.

Yeah the US is pretty loaded with high teir premiums even though I have yet to get Georgia, Black, and Missouri. But, I do like my Alaska, but I'd like to see more 'stupid' ships like our Smith division last night lol

Yeah I think we all forget just how much fun the lower tiers actually are, complete torp soup and utter mayhem.

I love my Smith. The ship is damn near impotent, but spamming torps at under ten second reloads is very fun. I have a trio of T2 DD's that I like playing. The Smith, the Umikaze, and the Tachibana. Nothing beats the Smith's insane torp reload, but the Umikaze and the Tachibana still pump them out every 22 seconds.

At T3 I love playing the Russian Derzki. 22 second reload for 10 torps. Having the torps set up in 2 tube batteries is nice. It gives you flexibility in how many you fire. I've surprised several players with how many torps it can fire. I've had some very satisfying battles in the Derzki. I think it is an under appreciated ship, for its tier.

V-25 is the ultimate troll DD, stick a 14 pt or above captain in there and you will have hours of fun.
