Bit shocked that in T8, a Destroyer would still do this.

Charging into my Benson at point blank range with a Fubuki trying to get that torpedo kill while i'm hiding in smoke lol

Come on man, its T8, Rather than going for the T2/3 Tactic that will result in a kill trade why not just launch the Torpedo's into the smoke screen and live to fight another battle?

I do this reasonably often in the higher tiers, but only in specific circumstances.  If I have cruiser support fairly close by to assist with fire when I spot the DD, and I am not putting myself in a position to take excessive enemy fire from other ships in the vicinity.  I will approach so that when we spot each other I am broadside on while they are beam on to me, so that I can bring all my guns to bear, and they can't launch torps or fire all their guns without turning, which takes a while from a stationary start.  Generally it's a pretty easy kill if you analyse the situation correctly and execute well.

 

Most importantly though, I will normally only do this if I am in a US or Russian DD - IJN DD's I will generally torp, unless of course we massively outnumber the enemy DD.

some might think that if they can bring down an enemy with them, then they already help the team.....

I guess its just me, usually just stalk around the smoke screen to catch them when they leave, Torps Usually flush them out if not kill.

With Vigilance on all my DD's i just like to keep around 5 km between them and myself.

Too much risk involved IMO, unless they're firing you cannot be sure on their positioning and if they're using guns you know exactly where to send the torps.
