Just got my cruiser smashed by a CV using every torpedo speed increase and distance decrease skill buff. 

 

I dont know how anything but a very fast DD is going to be able to avoid this OP (ridiculous) buff

 

Hey DEVs  There is NO distance penalty for torpedo planes having to drop closer to the ship  - Just means unavoidable deaths which is not good game play

 

Yu fools already messed up cruisers now you have overbalanced CV's 

 

remove the shorter distance torpedo debuff from PLANES - [content removed]

 

Insults towards Mod/GM/Admin

If you got destroyed by enemy CV torp bombers then it's either that CV is good if they use Manual drop on you or you are a complete potato that got killed by CV that use auto-drop.

Any average players can dodge a torp strike in a CA/DD (even BB can do it if they got good handling) unless it's a cross-drop which requires a skilled CV to pull that.

haha so much for easy dodging in a dd? If you havent played Akizuki dont say its easy.

Easy in the RU DD or US DD, but certainly not for Akizuki.

USN torps are 34 knots, or 39 with Torpedo Acceleration. IJN torps are 35 knots, or 40 with Torpedo Acceleration. However, the arming time remains the same so they have to be dropped slightly further away. ie. Your time to react to them is the same either way.

 

On my USN carriers I've stopped using Torpedo Acceleration for that reason. It's still useful for IJN planes due to their converging spread (works better from a greater distance) but for USN you can drop closer without it.

If you are torped with minimal arming distance chances are you are facing a very good carrier captain.

But anyway if you see it coming why not dodge it in the first place ? Here you are complaining that you have no way of dodging torp then you might as well forget that the game has the A and D key for a reason.

Hammering a dd is not ez task , most of the time you will only eat 1 torp if the carrier captain is good , more than that you should go watch youtube to get good.

On a sidenote , when facing Taiho or Hakuryu , dont wander too far from a covering CA , 3x torp plane with a good captain mean you will go back to port in 2 minutes with the altitude you have

isnt that the role of cv in the first place? also if your a cruiser(which are usually avoiding by cv) get attacked by cv means that you either sail alone or too far from friendly. next time sail close to the fleet ok?

CV torps have not been touched since patch 0.5.3 last year.

 

In any case, scanning the skies and staying vigilant is the first line of defense against any air attack.

No actual absolute chage however torp accel got cheaper & the revised captain skill tree makes it much easier to equip. Since the reset I feel like all carrier players are equipping it

Even before this patch TA was taken on every CV that knows what they are doing (no other skill at T3 was worth it except maybe DFE at T7).

Perhaps it is just a feeling, but it is a pretty strong feeling. 

Also, it could be that every CV player who screwed up first time round and chose dogfighting expert or something, took the opportunity to switch to torp accel.

Step 1: Get a cruiser with DFAA

Step 2: Press T when the planes come

Step 3: ???

Step 4: Profit!

 

But seriously though, torpedo acceleration is what every CV captain worth his/her salt takes. Either you are not turning correctly, or the CV captains you go up against know how to drop with minimum arming distance. Or perhaps it's just that more players have re-spec'ed their captains after the introduction of the new skill tree.

They have to drop from longer distance due to the increased speed, just turn into them and get ready to turn into another one, turning away would just make TA dropped torpedoes too deadly

 

Or maybe you should have noticed there's a carrier and not trying to soloyolowarrior in your DD

I have to assume you are talking about low tier CV players and every single low tier CV captain I saw today was spudding up the game with auto drops. You either got the one good CV captain playing low tiers or maybe it's you.
