Should we wait for the Armor Piercing bombs soon so i can sip the BBabies tears? :Smile_hiding:

 

You could always hope that the underwater torps would happen to not be perma-detectecd once they are spotted.

[content removed] beware, if that happens on live server.

Does it spot from Aircraft? as well as Catapult Launched Aircraft as well :fish_aqua:

 

I don't know, that was just my wishful thinking (that I don't exactly want it to happen, since I am also a BB main, y'know).

With smokescreen being useless, oh well, DDs will end up getting extinct on the next patch :v

Now BBs are expected to be the one who do the tanking/shellbait spotting outside of the smoke while DD/Cruisers are the ones staying in the smoke and farm damage.

Oh, and don't forget the C-shaped smokelaying If you want to protect those fat botes.

I still don't understand on how is it a DD nerf. If all, I think it's more of a BB nerf (and maybe a cruiser nerf) since they can't simply park in smoke and wait till someone's 2 km from him to detect him

Akizuki is affected by IFHE, Belfast is affected by smoke and other RN Cruisers

just give us RN CAs WG, we don't need Trash Cruisers who fire AP as always :Smile_hiding:

How will smoke be useless?  It seems the only ships that will really be negatively affected are BB's and CA's sitting in smoke and firing. This is a massively better change than the previous attempt of reducing the duration when you fired inside the smoke.

It does nerf team play a little, but it's the worst kind of team play, BB's sitting in smoke and firing are not good for the game.  You can still smoke a BB to reduce their incoming damage, they are just likely to be spotted if they decide to fire.

Well it can be a good gameplay but i don't play Random Battles for years now,

 

Also thought, Yamato and the other High Tier BBs and CAs are gonna be affected by the change, DDs might sledgehammered a little.

i hope they made deep torp un detectable by plane. also like choosing AP or HE, but with its long reload

if the smoke nerfed, at least they got torpedo buff like this. also i dont think IFHE should be good for phew phew DD like kebab.

In what way are DDs getting nerfed?

The IFHE change is a flat out buff for DDs. For DD calibre guns the fire penalty is reduced to 1% (previously it was 3%). For everyone else it is 8%.

And the smoke change hardly touches DDs. BBs and the RN CLs are the ones hurting the most.

The smoke changes doesnt affect DDs at all.The smoke changes only increase their detection range between  2.5km-2.8km when firing from smoke which  will not affect DDs at all unless they pope smoke too close to an enemy ship which is mainly the player's fault in the first place.IFHE will give them a bonus +1% fire chance for 139mm guns and below.Aircraft will still unable to spot DD in smoke even if they fire.
 

Tell me again how the DDs are affected by this?

This is good, I won't get as much grief from team-mates that expect platinum smoke support when I'm playing T R B DD.

The nerf barely affects DD

Especially IJN DD that use torp mostly

 

If all, it affects RNCL and Kutuzov the most

Good, now Belfast users will suffer these changes then

Hey. its our favorite BIGCOREMKP0I. He opens thread first, then posts random post, reads the actual source afterwards, which often are just rumors. We all are already used to it as you see none really questioned him.
