because 90% of the community hates the idea of an aim assist. After a few hundred battles leading shots becomes second nature anyway there is not even a need for one.

 

This is wisdom.

Reason? Unbalanced especially for fast reloading gun, you don't want to get hit more than often do you? :P

Aim assist on torps is all right though, it'll give the destroyers some job. But make sure you don't stay often on your present course or you'll meet full salvos of torpedoes.

Torpedoes are much slower than any shells

It took 10 to 20 seconds for shells to meet theur target at max range

While torpedoes took more than that (and you can see them coming)

We had aim assist when people were using aimbots.  Yeah, Fuso at 20km sees another Fuso, aims fires all 6 turrets.  Insta kills enemy BB or takes off 70% HP, kills them instantly in the next volley.

 

Woo, fun.

 

Torps get an aim assist because they move considerably slower and you can't real dial in your aim with them due to reload times, speed of torpedo etc.  It's also not a case of line the torp up, fire and forget.  The enemy will move naturally and also more so if they see your torps.  It's a rough indicator for the most part.

 

The aim assist hack absolutely destroyed and ruined the game when people were using it.  It really doesn't take too long for you to dial in your shots thanks to every round being a tracer round.

aim assist, aim bot ???? are they same thing? or how difference??

I want some assist, but I do hate bot.

 

-------------

 

well, I don't mind leading target myself, AS LONG AS my shell wouldn't spray all over the damn place and don't hit a thing,

it's useless no matter how good you aim, if shell won't go the way you want.

 

and who said torpedoes are slow and easy to evade???? tell that to BB player
you can SEE it

you can HEAR it

but you can't evade it

Aim assist on guns/batteries would make the game extremely non-challenging and there would be more imbalance since fast ships especially USN DDs would dominate since you can "click-click-click" while actually just minding to dodge enemy shells with sheer maneuverability.

I watch final battle scene of Battleship movie and see alien calculate lead targeting on Missouri.

So u LOVE getting hits by Des Moines salvo after salvo with deadly accurate gun + aimbot (or aim assist u say), while u cant hit Des Moines due to it speed and maneuver even u have aim assist he can easily evade your shells, on the other side u gonna keep getting hits in BB because u can't turn as fast as CA or DD, that seem to be very fun don't u think ?. :D:D:D

I am a BB player, I play more BB than DD as DD has been nerfed so hard it's reduced their effectiveness so much.

 

There are tonnes and tonnes of videos online and guides for BB players.  In the end it ALL boils down to situational awareness.  Those torpedoes you say you can't dodge or evade, they are not homing, if you change speed and direction regularly, they will miss.  I'm not going to type out what already exists in so many guides and videos, you'll need to look for that on your own.  But the torpedo aim assist indicates where the torpedoes need to be aimed to hit the target if it keeps the same speed and heading.  Most torps are aimed at 7km or 10km.  A tiny adjustment to your rudder will make a torpedo that would have hit you at 10km, miss you entirely.

 

Simple rules.

 

+You are big and slow, do not travel close to islands or through tight spaces.  You need open ocean to move and to see the enemy coming.

+Change course and speed often, even when in deep sea and having a shooting match with an enemy BB.

+Be are of enemy ships, DD's and some CA's have torpedoes, look at the ships in the tier you are playing and memorise or write down their respective torpedo ranges.  If you notice these ships within torp range, change heading often.

 

There's guides with tonnes more information.  It is not that hard to dodge torpedoes now.

Why do people still call it aimbot when it's supposed to be aim assist?

Here's you "aim bot". Too bad it makes the game too easy.

Because then the game would be 2ez and require zero skill.

 

An aim assist for artillery fire is essentially a "click here to win" display. Back during CBT, there was a mod which did this, and it caused quite a stir. Many people believed that it completely broke the game, and it was received very negatively.

Aim assist/aim bot: they're actually the same thing, but "aim assist" sounds more legit, "bot" sounds like cheating

 

if you can't hit your target, there's 2 reason

1.you didn't aim well

2.the shell dispersion

 

if you didn't aim well, you deserve the miss

with aim bot/assist, even a noob BB can one shot everyone, and every BB can one shot you

it makes the game sh*t-ful

 

for the shell dispersion, lead cannot help it

 

and...what?!you can't evade torpedo in a BB??

there's more than 10 second for you to evade it

furthermore, you can predict the torpedo

you CAN'T see it

you CAN'T hear it

but you CAN still evade it

 

you foolish s**king noob!

how can you get hit by torpedo???

even if you aren't able to predict it

you can see that BIG FAT torpedo incredibly far away, you can hear that warning

there's far more than enough time for you to evade

you just need to keep your finger holding "A" or "D" to turn your a*s/head towards the torpedo

and nothing will hit you

 

I've taken out a few DD in my Fuso in CBT without being badly hurt

now I'm hunting DDs in my Myogi, you can't imagine how easy it is

I would say, to a BB, CA is a bigger threat than DD

that aim assist main gun was available for mod back then on CBT, it totally destroyed the fun and only accumulating rage to the point that many people stop playing until it was fixed

aim assist torps? well

1. Stop

2. Turn

3. Slow down and turn

4. Don't present broadside to DD/Cruiser with torps?

 

voila you dodged the torps if you can't do that with BB, just play cruiser or something
