It actually mean: "Play like a Shinyo suicide boat you torpedo spamming noob". First, they made this game and said "The Japanese destroyers will have torpedo advantage" now Japanese torpedoes are worse than American torpedoes. 

Well play, Wargaming.

Like anyone still uses the 20km torps

 

Personally I have switched to the 12 km torpedoes since 5.5 started. But I have seen videos of a player continuing to use 20 km torpedoes and actually doing well with them. Wonder how does he keep finding people who don't wasd.

Why is everyone whining? Those 20 km torps are useless anyway.I can see them from 4 kms away in my fletcher with vigilance. thats like hydro level stuff. Unless someone is an idiot i doubt anyone wiill ever run into those.

I kinda agree with this nerf. But I want them to have more torpedo speed. I mean, the worst thing I experienced in high tier combat is facing a  sudden wall of torpedoes without having a chance to dodge. And I swear man, I barely ever spot Japanese Destroyers above the Fubuki due to their torpedo range.

Good patch, 99% IJN DD players aren't doing their objective(to capture) and made the team lost.

Now they should suffer.

 

Yes. Their objective is to cap which they are not as well equipped to carry out as compared to the US DDs. Previous ranked players should know this well. (Fubuki vs Benson) Not saying that they shouldn't cap, but they need more support to cap then US DDs. 

 

P.s. WG please gimme my 10 rpm IJN guns.

no.... king of capping is US/RU DD not IJN, don't expect IJN to get into cap area and do a knife fight with those =w=

I myself, if I run into cap and found US/RU DD in there, I immediately turn away, try to keep them spot and wait it out and NEVER get into that death zone

 

if I dare get in,

question is, will IJNDD live long enough for CA to kill off/drive away enemy US/RU DD?    if both team CA are shooting at DD

 

I rather stay alive and cap later than die earlier in cap race.

USN DDs run the capping circle game actually.

IJN just lacks the gun potential to actually contest it from another DD line of equal skill. The RU DDs however are ill-suited for knife fights with their USN counterparts. Their inferior detection ranges also hinder in contesting points more often than not with relatively worse turret traverse and maneuverability.

You'd be surprised on how many Kagero and Shimakaze captains I encounter that still use the 20km torps. Spot them miles away(literally :trollface:) and they don't hit a thing but the spam continues. There are still occasions I just facepalm when my ally still gets hit with them even when I or some other ally already spotted them so I guess they aren't 100% ineffective.

You play DD, you go capture. No matter which DD you are in.

You don't capture, you fail the team.

 

in other words, IJN DD's= Collectibles only, not a combat/legit DD

now i really want them to give the captain skill reset for free for those ship especially Fubuki

and i'm talking about the that tier 3 skill: TA

now in the nutshell, the Shimakaze got worse torpedo, armor, firepower, AA, and HP compare to enemy Gearing

 

so i can't see the reason why Contesting the cap with her with enemy cruiser or US/RU DD nearby (i haven't mention radar)

Bah.....let's see what actually happens. In any case, I have vested in Torpedo Acceleration skill for my Kagero Captain and it works well with my game play. Nevertheless, am glad I have since moved on to USN DD and am currently with a T8 Benson, where the fun really begins for the line

Torp being taken out in the patch notes from NA got redacted.

 

So, in short, the 20km torps and stock Fubuki torps are here to stay.

 

(It was a miscommunication on WGs part to how the patch notes were delivered to foreign counterparts)
