please nerf the torps or add better range on detection

 

worst thing is to see a destroyer pop out of no where and drop 6 torps on u with less then 2 secs reaction time.

 

its not the torps that need nerfing it the detection range for DD , but im not holding my breath , to many losers on here would cry if there precious dd got nerfed  , how else would they run around killing everything with 1 salvo of torps

But that's the best thing \o/

 

Also, 2 seconds reaction time means you let a DD drop from less than a kilometer away. You are clearly doing it wrong.

Honestly idk what you guys are on about... i mainly play battleships that is quite well known and i have no prblem with the detection range, heck i dodge 90% of torps that tells me the detection range is too much as is...

Sigh.

before you complain about anything maybe try the shoe on the other foot, play a DD same tier as your BB and higher. Then tell us what needs nerfing.

If you got killed by 1 torpedo salvo, you are not playing the game right.

 

Anyhow, your ship has scout planes for reasons, time them right.

Please tell me when you're playing.  I would like to see all six of my torpedoes hit something.  It's NEVER happened for me.  I'm lucky if one torpedo out of six hits, let alone all six.

 

Sarcasm aside, it can be pretty frustrating to get by torpedoes out of ambush.  If you're new, realize that if you stick with the game, you'll pretty quickly get a feel for the kinds of places that destroyers lurk.  Unless they're IJN DDs.  We pretty much purely exist so that nobody can ever feel truly safe, anywhere on the map after about the first six minutes of a game.  But even then our bark is worse than our bite most of the time - our torpedoes are pretty easily spotted.

With how easy torpedoes are detected, that was the only way for the DD to kill you. You got owned, torpedoes are not OP.

Think about the DD, they have to get really close to drop torps, they have to constantly dodge ship salvos, they are fragile!

Perhaps ask a friendly cruiser for an escort?

No torps/DD's don't need a nerf. You need better skills.

 

If you see smoke or suspect there's a DD in the area slow down and turn towards the smoke. Make it more difficult for a DD driver to hit you.

If you see torp bombers, turn towards them too, don't just go in a straight line and assume your armour is going to save you.

This seems to be a popular strategy for dealing with torps though.

Turning towards torpedoes is generally the best way to deal with them.

 

Turning away from torps also works and has the advantage of giving fractionally more time to align your course parallel to the torps. This does have the disadvantage of being somewhat trapped by the torps until the pass by.

Well the simple solution to this problem is just awareness , if you see a smokescreen chances are that a DD is there . Sometimes you just have to know the risks that you are taking by entering the smokescreen itself, If I were to enter a smokescreen (which sometimes I do) I always know the risk at hand and If my ship sinks well its part of that risk that I take lol.

Can't say I would advise entering a smoke screen DD aren't the only ones that use it.
