This again?

 

Use your situational awareness. Prepare to maneuver if you see DDs or TBs closing in. Dodge torpedoes. Torpedoes do 0 HP damage.

 

The game should not be holding players hands, as if everybody is a small child.

I watching my friend play WOW'S 

His ship destroy by only 1 hit torpedo,is the torpedo overpowered?

 

It will depend on what type of ship your friend was playing. Torps are not Over Powered, its just people getting use to having and dodging torpedo's

No, torpedoes are not overpowered. Situational awareness, good tactics and dodging negates most of the torpedo threat. If your friend was killed in a single torpedo hit, he's probably either a DD or CA and a victim of bad tactics, or an astronomically unlucky BB.

Don't just watch. Give DD a try and see it yourself.

ok

i will try it in Open beta then

 

FYI torps are not OP. Its just the enemy ship aren't paying attention enough to battle dynamics. Every torps passing will trigger an alarm. Experienced player can and will always succeed in evading torps. Only when the torps really hits it pays off

anyway, (playing destroyer it's hard enough you know), since you can see torpedoes from around +4 km, and you still have time to try to not take any hit or take less hit by manuvering toward it

I lost that image, but torpedo acquisition range was increased to 40% from 10%. That's 4x the range you can see torpedoes coming and you can see it from halfway across the map. Hilarious, really, unless they were torp bombers or you just got swarmed by 3 DDs.

Brave sailors use DD's (tbh, I kinda scared when I face a group of DD's while I'm in a BB or CA)

 

Torpedoes ain't that OP once you're the one using it :D

I'm primarily a DD user before the state of the pubs and the increased spotting range killed it.

 

IMO torps are NOT OP, neither are they SP. It punishes the inattentive captain and it punishes really really hard

I don't find torps OP too, but it's with the DD's themselfs I am a bit concerned about.....

Youve clearly never been on the receiving end of a well placed spread fired at close range, or a clever multi angled torpedo attack. You cant dodge them all, but you can avoid most of them with a little skill.

well to be fair though, a small ship such as a light cruiser or destroyer may take one fish to blow it out of the water provided if the fish in question deals 20k damage. dont expect cap ships to sink from a single fish or heavy cruisers that easily since it would probably take a couple of fish to do so.

DD has a great damage but very little defense. spraying it creepy

 

Actually, when you go by an experienced opponent, then DDs prolly have the best defense of all ships.

They're small, mauneverable, fast, have smoke screens and torpedoes, which can be fired prematurely. (I.e. before the enemy is in view range)

 

Meanwhile all CAs and BBs have in return is hitpoints, because if they're fighting an experienced opponent (BB) then the following will happen:

- CA gets hit by full AP barrage, dead

- BB gets hit by full AP barrage, ~50% hitpoints
