First of all... This is dumb. I don't know if WG keep it this way, but the current implementation of this in PT 0.8.11 is so dumb.

 

ONE. Select a torpedo boat of choice. Preferably one with high speed, good torpedoes and a high number of torps per broadside. Torpedoes having long range and high speed are good bonuses. Therefore, to maximize profit, ships like Lightning and Akizuki are inadvisable for this.

TWO. Respec captain skills and ALWAYS pick TAE. If you pick Benson or Kagero, forget your Smoke. If you keep/use your Smoke in a 1v1 scenario, I will have to question your intelligence :Smile_trollface: Recommended to pick Torp Accel so the enemy wouldn't dodge your torps so easily.

THREE. Set up the ship as usual. Prioritize Concealment.

FOUR. Enter battle. If you opponent is a BB or a CR, keep silent until you get into torpedo range. If your opponent is a DD, simply use more of your MLG skillz to dodge. 'JUST DODGE'

FIVE. Now use Speed Boost and get in as close as possible.

SIX. Launch torps.

SEVEN. Profit :Smile_glasses:

Extra style point if you can torp the enemy's aft and sink him by flooding.

 

Yeah unless WG change it into "ships of the same type only" (BB vs BB only, DD vs DD only, etc.), this is dumb. HILARIOUSLY dumb.

Imagine people winning these by bringing Tirpitz and Kii against other BBs. LMFAO.

Maybe the Graf Zeppelin will be recommended also, since she has a Decent secondary to melts incoming DD and cruisers. I don't know if WG not allowing CV, but they did not provide any statements of not allowing CV on ranked battles.

By the way tho, If you pick DD, a radar cruisers (Baltimore, Cleveland, Wichita, Montpelier, etc) can easily just use radar in case they are spotted. 

And, CV can spot anything and everything easily. Graf Zeppelin plane will just melt eveything in her sight. And don't forget Graf Zeppelin plane is incredibly fast.

Radar is just good for a few seconds. All you need to do is skirt the edge of the radar, make them pop the radar and the run off into the sunset.... ONLY TO RETURN LATER!

AFAIC, nothing wrong about sneaking as close as possible to a large ships and then just salvo an arc of torp into its path , its both historically proven working ( in real world and in game ) but also an age old strategy for any torpedo boat in this game ( and also in real world ). That is why those are torpedo boat ...

Been playing this mode on the Test server and the matches are over within 3 to 5 minutes. Basically just sailing into the cap, shoot, torp, game over. Ramming is also quite popular. Can't see the play style being any different when it comes to the live server.

Some forum lurker apparently either is salty against DDs or does not believe in DDs.

Symptom of a BBaby.

I took Enterprise out for two/three rides on the Test Server and totally dominated the enemy CA/DD, I felt ashamed of myself that I stopped playing the ranked sprint.

Salty about CVs too. Anything posted that doesn't say CVs will be top dog gets a boring reaction.

Anyway it is a stupid mode. WG should know the game isn't designed for 1v1s.

GZ is going to be hilarious in this mode.  Terrible should be fun as well.

I'm actually really looking forward to this.  I think they should actually add a permanent 1v1 queue - it doesn't matter if it's often completely unbalanced, that's part of the appeal of it.  Try to win against ships that you absolutely shouldn't beat 1v1.  Very short games with constant and immediate action that test the core skills of the game will be great practice.
