Lately, World of Warships has been headed in a very radar heavy meta with the introduction of the new USN CL line, the two new premium Soviet (battle)cruisers and the discussion of Radar on the Grozovoi. If you frequent the destroyer lines or even the RN cruisers this is particularly frustrating. Smoke becomes useless, islands are nearly useless (those USN arcs will go over the top), and with the current penetration and damage mechanics destroyers have been suffering. with this change though, it might be worth noting that although they seem to be anti-DD lately, not too long ago they were very anti-BB. With the introduction of AP bombs on carriers (poor German Battleships) and deep water torpedoes, particularly those of the Asashio, it was pretty evident that they wanted to reduce the BB’s in queue. All this has really done, in my observations, is produce most back of the map static play for battleships and less cap or spotting focused destroyers. Now of course, Battleship numbers have reduced a bit and since the release of 0.7.5 DD numbers have decreased as well. So where has everyone gone?
