    Torp Damage Mechanics

    I’ve come across some really strange torp damage values recently. Today I torped both a Groz and a Hindenburg. No flooding on either so guess what had the most damage? Answer: the Hindy at 17k and the Groz at 12k. I’m running 20k damage torps. How in the world can I only get 12k on a Groz? It’s a DD for Pete’s sake! I get less damage on a DD than a cruiser? It’s not like it has a torpedo bulge. What am I missing? Side note: it’s been really tough playing the shimmy lately. With CVs in the game and radar ships, especially those long range and duration RU cruisers, it’s making DDs (correction: stealthy torp boats not the 50knot hydrofoil DDs) to be a dying breed at high tiers. I’m almost ready to give up on the game play after heavy losses and finishing bottom of the score board. I consider myself a decent torp boat man but jeez lately it’s been brutal. PLUS now it feels like the damage from my torps is reduced. what am I not seeing?

    IJN Torp Boat Power Ups!

    I was thinking of ways WG can breath new life into the old torpedo boat IJN line. its been power crept on now for a while and could use some love specifically at higher tiers where I think they struggle (ubiquitous hydro, CV, planes of all sorts, BB speed boosts (ok just french line - makes them really hard to torp), high maneuverability BBs etc etc &c &c This is what I would love to see 1. Give high tier captains the ability to have one spread of torpedoes be those used on the Asashio. I would frigging love that in my shimmy. 2. Higher speed torps and lower detactability. Good, bad, ugly?

    How to play IJN torp boats

    I agree a torp boost would be most welcome. Fast and low detectability! Heck what if they gave shimmy captains the ability to have one spread of Asashio torps? That would breath new life into the line

    The Fundamental Flaws of CVs in WoWs

    I don’t know. Have you seen how fast those planes move on a map? They can traverse caps very easily to spot DDs. I’m seeing less caps being taken because DDs, and rightly so, are hanging even further back

    The Fundamental Flaws of CVs in WoWs

    Bang on. Why would I play my shimmy now? I don’t see any reason to take it out of port unless they give it a speed boost to 230 knots so I can outrun those plans
  6. Totally agree with this. In this current meta I see no reason to take my shimakaze out of port
  7. I hadn’t played in a while and logged on to see what all the fuss was about. Wow I had quite a surprise, the game feels really different and not in a good way. First I can barely shoot a plane out of the sky with defensive AA on - what gives? Why is AA so crap all of a sudden? Second, WG give no explanation when logging on with the new update about how to use the sector AA... but do let me know that Le Terrible is available for rent (wth?). Third I’m getting attacked by planes every minute and spend more time angling my AA than fighting other ships: I’m not enjoying that at all. If my AA is effectively crap, I now have to pay a lot more attention to what’s being sent my way. Forth, I thought one of the big reasons for this rework was to reduce the spotting? As a DD player it doesn’t feel less, it feels the same or worse. Those planes move super fast and cover a lot of ground. Pity my DD isn’t 200knots so I could avoid them. Im a weekend player, a premium junkie who doesn’t like the grind. I can’t say that I’m happy with this rework. The game has become less fun and what that means is that I will play it less, buy less and put my money elsewhere. This seems like a rushed update and I for one don’t want to suffer (unlike a tier X IJN CV) until they fix it. Fix it.

    I am perhaps guilty of underestimating how drunk people are playing WOWs today; it is New Years Eve after all. A lot of the streamers on Twitch seem loaded. <as I down a wee dram of Scottish Whiskey>

    I hope you're as gracious in your opinions when someone on your own team citadels you
