My main was the Japanese DD line ever since I played this game. I have pretty good stats (not the best, but if I play them now I can bump them up a lot) on the Wakatalkie and the Isokaze (65 and 55), but I cannot figure out how to get the mutsuki to work (i have 47). Part of it was the increase of pro'ish players in tier 5 and 6, but I would get periods where I can win for 3 matches, and then lose 5 straight. I think I'm just not used to the play style. Since the isokaze has fast reloads, I usually like to be a little more exposed, but my play style tends to be less risky than US DD for Russian DD. Should I be more stealth in my mutsuki and try surprise attacks/flank? Any tips?

Mutsuki is pretty great and yes, maximize her stealth as much as you can including running camo. Try your best to avoid a duel with other DD’s and stealth torp as much as you can. Reset your detection as often as you can and use your speed. The Fubuki is fantastic and the Akatsuki is just unreal. It’s an awesome line.

I’m 100% with Betterholdfast’s advice.
From the Mutsuki and up you have to actually use the boats like what they are, Japanese Destroyers. You scout, snipe and run. Look at the difference in the Mutsuki’s health and firepower compared to the Nicholas. If you try and go toe to toe during a reload with the American he will blow you to pieces. And you are also starting to run into Cruisers with the rate and weight of fire in their guns to sink you in only a couple of volleys.
Good torpedoes and great detection range are your friends. The guns are there in case you run into a merchant ship (not that there are any in the game ) or the Langley. Otherwise they are a trap that will just get you spotted and killed. At least till you get into the Fubuki.
