Hello, is there any chance you could give the sims torpedos a Buff as they only do 8900 Max damage and if you compare that to other DDs at the same tier, or even lower tiers they do so much less damage than other torpedos.

Reason why I brining this up now is, I was just in a battle with a fuso on the cap, my team was leading on points but only just in front, and the time was running out.

Now as you know when an enemy ship is on your cap, you stop getting points and I new this fuso needed to be sunk, or the battle was lost, so I rushed him, I  got about 3-4 km away and fired all my torps at him now 5 torpedos, yes 5 torps hit the fuso, but sadly he didn't die and the sims being a tier 7 compared to a tier 6 BB my torps did  a total of 25259 damage and that wasn't enough to kill him.

if you compare the sims torpedo damage to other tier 7 DDs they range from, Mahan 11600, Blyskawica 14400, kiev, 15100 and Hatsuharu 16267 being 610mm compared to all others having 533mm torps.

If you coud give them a buff to about the same as the Mahan torpedos in damage that would be more balanced because at the moment, its just  not balanced, if u also look at the slow speed of the upgraded torps.

it only needs a small buff to torpedo damage and the speed is fine, it be so much more balance please.

Thank you.

I have a feeling that Sims will get torpedoes buff (to the same spec as Mahan) sooner or later so be patient :P

 

Here the video where i score 5 torpedoes hits on "Atlanta" and unable to sink it :D:D:D

as u can see in this picture 5 hits 25000+ damage only.

very low damage when compared to other DDs at same tier. hell the IJN tier 5 DD does just as much if not more damage than tier 7s

Great idea buff the DD Sim .....add better torpedos and maybe improve the Armour. Players never happy, instead of the buff just drop it a tier so that it shines. Sorry forgot no vessels allowed to shine in this game may end up been fun to play.

tbh i actually quite like about Sims to the point that i have 1,987.27 average EXP in SIms :trollface:

 

Only down side about the ship are just torpedoes and less gun if you compare it to Mahan anyways have it your own ways m8 :P

yeah I like the ship as well and nothing else is bad about it at all, other than the torps doing max damage of 8900 compared to Mahan 11600.

The range and speed of the upgraded torps is fine. It be nice if the torpedo damage was on par with the Mahan or closer to 11000 instead of the 8900 max damage.

10500 damage would be more balanced being it is a premium ship.

So only asking for 1 thing to be changed

Same as me and i really believe WG gonna buff it since Sims torpedoes is underperforming but is not priority so it should take a while :P

yes true.

all we can do is keep brining this up and see what happens, but the next patch shouldn't be that far away, as the Russian OP cruisers are live for testing, so give it 2 weeks b4 new patch comes out.

Went digging through the old forum topics to find this and bring it back up. Please please PLEASE buff the Sims' 9.2km Bliss Leavitt torpedoes. We can deal with the super slow speed but only having a maximum of 8500 damage per torpedo is woeful and the 1.0km detection range doesn't come close to making up for that. Not to mention the quite low chance of causing flooding. 135% chance of flooding before armour mitigation is quite bad

Any torpedo hit we land only ever seem to do 4000-5000 damage so a buff to approximately 11000 damage and make them ignore a certain percentage of torpedo bulge protection would be much appreciated. Or just replace them with the Mk 15 torpedoes from the Mahan, either of these options would be a much appreciated improvement.
These torps are probably the worst torpedoes on any of the higher tier ships (Plane dropped torps don't count). They aren't quite as slow as the Mk 29 torpedoes on the Black but the Mk 29 torps have over 2.5 times the maximum damage and 4.5km more range (1.8km more range and only 1 kt slower than Sim's 9.2km torps if used with a captain running Torpedo Acceleration skill), Mid tier Russian DD torpedoes are very specialised as knifefight/ambush torps but they excel at their role with exceptional speed for the tier and great damage.

 

I bought the Sims way back in Closed Beta and would really like to see her be a worthwhile ship
