Dont quite remember the DD (apart from US) and cant think of map name however....

 

I circle an island and sitting there on the far side are 2 immobile enemy CV approx 2km apart. Dont know what they were watching, but it wasnt my DD. I sailed straight up the middle between them, 6 torps to the left and 6 torps to the right. Kaboom and Kaboom.

 

As a side note, their secondary guns took me down to about 40% hp. But I was happy.

here's mine!

yep firing torps on a CV that's not paying attention is satisfying... especially if you spent a great deal of time flanking xD

my most satisfying is not from killing... but from flip utterly defeated to unexpected victory.

A kill with my hiryu. i launched first wave against the target- a nagato, against cruiser AA and catafighter i got only one torpedo dropped from two squads. When i was considering this wave a failure, the torpedo hit nagato below her no.2 turret.... and caused a magazine denotation. that nagato hadnt fire a single shot.

My Favourites are when I 1 salvo a DD at close range in my BB.

 

Second would be when I get into a Knifefight with an Enemy cruiser and I'm in my Cleveland, with AP loaded - and they go from full health to no health after 2 Salvos with multiple Citadels.

Nice work mate! :great:

 

This is the thing that bugs me - why do we still have  stationary CV problem?

There definitely should be a tutorial series for each class of ship with a big focus on your role and the basics.

Common occurrence: I'm in a Isokaze, Minekaze or Mutsuki. I sneak up somewhere. Enemy CV spots me with planes. There is at least 15km between me and him, none of his allies between me and him.

HE SITS STILL!!!! /rant.

 

But yeah, better tutorial series and some sort of beginner reminder in game (including audio) for things like 'remember to keep an eye on your mini-map for possible threats', 'be very aware of your allies when launching torpedoes' or 'always give way to bigger ships, they find it harder to avoid collisions than smaller ships'.

you know what will happens next :trollface:

 

 

or playing ranked, Fuso vs Fuso, 1v1, and than he tried to ram me, unaware I got a ramming flag with nearly full health, well, I turned into him and killed him instead :teethhappy:

When I am heavily out numbered in my Tirpitz, bow forward, charging at 2 bb's, a cruiser and a dd, while the enemy is also spamming me with torp planes, and I'm almost dead, and an enemy bb finally grows a pair and gets too close, and I launch a set of torps at him then die. I stick around to watch him blow up from the torps.

Last night in a Cleveland - an Atago came round the corner at a range of 5 Km - 2 Salvos and 9 Citadels later, The Cleveland stood proud, whilst the Atago went down to the depths below.

 

Can't have been me in the Atago then :trollface:

Last ranked in my New Mexico. Fired full broadside at a Cleveland coming from behind an island on Fault-line. 1 round out of 12 hit, that one round obliterated his ship with a magazine detonation.

When BBs of all tiers let my russian DDs into terrible torpedo range and they go boom!

 

I love to do that, but keep them at +2 km outside of their torpedo range with an 8 to 10 milspec lead (depending on their speed and ship, less if they are slower) and send them all my HE burning love. :teethhappy:

im Loving Random Torpedo Kills.  You launch torps in a General area, with no hint of enemy activity.  A few minutes later...."BOOM:  You have sunk an enemy Destroyer"..... etc etc...

 

as quoted by a Captn MeloMelonSoda.  "Random... is REAL!"

I love torp kills but I really prefer German AP kills. Show me your broadside and I'll show you your citadels. But my most memorable kill was in my Gnevny, same situation as you OP but BBs. I was able to neak up on them and left and right, a Wyoming ang Kongou went to their watery graves. Granted that these BBs are already damaged.
