So you think you have what it takes to get in the ring with the best?

 

 

Asia's resident TORPEDOBEAT exponent and "how-to" series maker has agreed to judge the latest contest.

 

As for all these you need to reply to this post.  This time you need to attach your replay of a SINGLE BATTLE - no youtube mixups - just the 1 battle!

How to replays:  http://forum.worldofwarships.asia/index.php?/topic/6646-how-to-enable-replays-repost-from-beta-section/

 

Top 5 as judged by eurobeat get 1k doubloons (1000 doubloons).

A further 10 will receive 300 doubloons after a lucky dip by your normal contest compares, myself and lengxv6.

 

Standard rules apply:

entries from the contest period, no editing, 1 entry etc.

 

Special rules for this competition:

The "jazziest torpedo dodge moments"

scoring based on:
1. The closest torp(s) that misses
2. The number of torps dodged 
3. WASD use
4. Torpdodge duration

5.  Class difficulty - bonus point for those classes that really shouldn't be doing this!

6.  Number of times in the one battle - once is good, twice is better, 3 or more times  - then you are onto a possible winner.

 

No tier restrictions.

 

Start: Friday 3rd June 2016 1200 UTC +8

End: Friday 17th June 2016 1200 UTC +8

Judging Period: As required - the more entries the longer it takes ;)

Payment to winners - allow 2 weeks after winners announced.

 

Thread locked for judging :)

Times: 17:29 - First attempt

           11:55 - Second attempt

           10:37 - Third attempt

            9:31 - Fourth and last attempt

 

Note: The first attempt came when the enemy cruiser -Omaha had fired a spread of torpedoes at my ship (Myogi), before I sunk it. The rest came from the enemy carrier - Hosho, before I sunk it as well.

I probably should wait until close to the close of the contest to see I can get a better entry, but I'd probably forget all about this game so here is my entry :)

replay: http://wowreplays.com/Replay/8687-Grant_3025-New-Dawn

 

notes: A Minekaze game in which I did very little (capped B, twice) but had a surprising amount of torpedo bomber attention.

 

Submitted not so much for this competition but more as a warning to mid tier Carriers that focussing too much on killing a Destroyer can sometimes waste your precious attacks.

 

I do however like the way my Minkaze bounced a TB torpedo off her nose early on, and how the 2nd last TB attack didn't sink me I'll never know.  Some days the RNG hates someone else just a little bit more than it hates you :)

 

5.10 attacked by 2 squad of TB (CV attempyed a cross drop, but only had to dodge one set of torps)
7.30 attacked by 1 DB & 1 TB squads. At 7.45, a torpedo bounces off my Minekaze's bow (CV dropped just a tad to late)
7.00 attacked by 2 TB squads (again attempyed cross drop, again only the first lot of torps were a threat)
9.15 sitting in smoke, enemy Clemson launched 2 salvos of torps at my smoke, but neither salvo were any danger to hit me.
16.35 attacked by TB squad
18.15 brown trousers moment - sitting in smoke and very lucky to survive TB squad attack
18.30 still in smoke, 2nd TB attack. Looks like the CV attempting cross drops earlier in the game did a much better attempt this time, but RNG was not on his side.

Hehe - I knew I shouldn't of put in an entry early :p

 

*NOT AN ENTRY*, but having a Kongo jumped by 2 Minkaze and a Mutsuki and surviving due to the Kongo's speed (showed them her phat stern and ran made a tactical withdrawal), secondaries and a nice *torpedobeat* needs to be shared.

 

bonus info: Despite what people say, the secondaries on a Kongo aren't that bad - especially when enemy DDs decide to chase you at close range.

 

The fun starts with about 11 minutes left on the clock

again *NOT* an entry (already have one in a Minkaze), but posting this here in the hope I might get my 15 minutes 15 seconds of internet fame an make a torpedo beat highlight real :hiding:

There was quite a lot of torpedoes released on the ocean but I'll just list down the timing when I have to turn to avoid torpedoes.

-~15:30

 -~14 

-~8:40

And maybe at ~7:30 if don't count 1 torpedo hit my rear :hiding:
