Is the artillery camera bug going to be fixed anytime soon though?

That Tirpitz buff is too OP, the Tirpitz should NOT have 7 km secondaries since the ship already has torpedoes.

They might want to bring the torp range down to 4 km. but in the main time, play the hell out of it.

Bismarck made Tirpitz irrelevant because of its hydro and secondaries. This now makes it a viable choice between the two.

 

Are Bismarck secondaries a bit OP for T8? Yeah. But WG obviously doesn't want to change them, so buffing the Tirpitz is the next best option. I can take mine out of the fjord it's been hiding in now!

Why? Tirpitz torps are fine, and anyone that actually knows how to use them will hold them until around 2km away anyways. It's not like 6km torps are incredibly useful for anything else really.

But 7 km secondaries and torps is kinda OP, so just have shorter range secondaries, like 5 km and it'll be more balanced.

I am not much of a DD player but the IJN DD gun turn time buff has been needed since alpha days. Even with this they are at a giant disadvantage against a US or RU DD in a gun fight but now they will have a chance to at least keep their guns on target while maneuvering.

Agreed. Its a BB with torps, now you buff its secondaries, whats next smoke????

Admitedly  this is a comment from someone who has never played the Tirpitz, only against them.  The never seemed underpowered to me. IJS

NIKO,

has the automatic rotation of the mini been fixed so the carrier is at the bottom or have we been forgotten again. Playing the CV effectively at the top is nearly impossible and this has not been fixed.

Damn as soon as I move from the IJN DD line they buff the torps so that, if I was at the right place at the right time, with the right target, and concentrated my torps.....I could have done some damage!

 

:amazed::teethhappy: I did find the enthusiasm used to sell that buff amusing.

I don't get what you are talking about, I can play CVs fine from any map orientation.

Full secondary spec the Tirpitz secondaries could go 6.8 anyways before the patch. It really isn't OP at all because of how situational those torps are.
