I know this sucks but can the devs will revert the IJN and USN Torpedo bomber nerf for these changes? the devs doen't care about these on hindsight.

Suddenly I realise why the flooding mechanics got nerfed. Something to do with limited charges damagecon. Too coincidental.

The nerf to IJN airborn torps is justified IMO, they just have too much DoT potential, even after the nerf.

On the other hand, when did USN torps have flooding chance? I wonder....:Smile_hiding:

SB2C Helldivers as well as BTDs can take 3 hits then flood appears, and another wave of 3 BTDs and or SB2Cs can cause another flood.

I vaguely get what you are saying, but it is kind of difficult to understand with the bad grammar.

why not just make IJN torpedo has higher alpha but 0 flooding. also they should tone down IJN AP dive bombers. they are too much, i watched those things blow stalingrad and battleships on KoS NA.

there are many problem with current CV. as flamu said, why CV are having top damage when they already provide so much utility unlimited vision?. if they want cv to deal damage then they should nerf its plane LoS to reduce vision it provide.

spotting with dd is always risky because radars enemy dd and now planes. but cv can do those better without exposing itself to danger.

You know they should've done that long time ago but no... 

90s on DD why gives 90s on DD? 

even others too long to wait time out 

Spam torpedo every 30s you cant even use repair party after first torpedo salvo

Tovarisch, you are approved for your ice watching expedition to Siberia. 

9mm1, you are approved for supervising Tovarisch on his ice watching expedition.  

Details will be hand delivered by friendly representatives.  Please be packed for a short stay lasting 6-7 lifetimes. 

 

Good day.

Siberia tourist department, you come to visit and never leave!

It's approved tactics encouraged by community contributors too.

For me, flooding is pure luck as to where you get hit by a torpedo.

For dds, flooding is usually inconsequential because 1 torp usually will take out the dd failing torpedobeats.

For cruisers, soso.

The main beneficiary of this are the bbs. With their huge health pool, they are the ones that will survive. With the appropriate flags, you can get your flooding under control with a shortened damagecon. If you happened to use your damagecon and then get flooded, you just had terrible luck. But essentially this nerf rewards i) straightline sailing and ii) non-team play. A battleship should be able to avoid torpedoes if their torpedo screen are doing their job.

I too, think that CVs would be more balanced if the plane spotting range was limited. Limit the render range, so planes have to be within 10km or less to be able to spot enemy ships. Not like they really need the spotting range, fast as they are. And it gives opportunities later if WG ever want to specialise CVs for spotting.

Dejiko_nyo, place yourself on report. Gulags are banned. You run the state sponsored tourist ice watching center. 

Please make sure our two newest tourists enjoy themselves with no internet.

Idk... mayb because I didn't use TBs in USN CVs at all. I mean their targeting and spread is so annoying and DBs and Rockets did pretty much all I needed,so...
