let say that you are exchange fire a big gun with enemy (either you on CA or BB)

 

but TB are suddenly show up, and it's seem approaching you (this can be either TB or Torpedo wall from DD)

 

now, everyone know that to dodge or minimize damage form those is to bow against it.

but to do that, you show your full broadside to enemy.

 

so, you have to choose.

to stay angle, protect your citadel but take a full load of torpedo.

or

to dodge/minimize torpedo by turn against it, but risk take a citadel hit from enemy ship.

 

which one is your prefer?

Um i'd say Turn to dodge them Cause there is a chance that the Enemy screw's up his Aim or his aim is not that good. But if you don't you're gonna take that Torp for Sure.

Citadel require rng, imho a little more skill, plus you can dodge torpedo.

But chance are you die either way:(

 

The point is don't feel to bad if you die or take massive hit. This is one of the worst situation to be in.

If I've already done reloading, I would fire a full salvo on the enemy before turning to dodge then angle again.

Avoiding citadels is up to RNG and the enemy player's aim. Dispersion is your friend.

 

Avoiding torpedoes is all about being aware of them in the first place so you can dodge in time.

Personally, torpedoes are in my absolute priority list because I can dodge them- Dodging shells is difficult because you're a huge ship with a lot of mass. Even if you turn, you'll still take a hit- I'd rather dodge what I can.

 

That and the torpedo alarm is scary.

If you can dodge the torpedo just with handling, you can time using your speed control to dodge the shells. It only works in the best of situations though.

 

I'd take citadel damage any day rather than torps if I got no choice.

I'll have my division mate torpedo/citadel whatever ship has me pinned, because I don't believe in a no win scenario.

Dodge the torps! Had a moment in my Kongo, tried to brawl a new york(just for fun, my team already win) torp from minekaze pops up, dodge them, fully broadside to a New York, 6km away, thinking I'm already dead.. Only to find out he's firing HIGH EXPLOSIVE! Lol! Fires a return salvo of 2 citadels. Ah those moment..
