Compare a Shimakaze to a Khabarovsk. The latter has fast, stealthy, short range torps that will only be used in yolo situations. As such, the hit rate will be higher. That doesn't mean the Khab is a better torpedo boat than the Shima. Or compare the playstyle of two Shima players. The first one routinely charges BBs in the first 5 minutes of the game and unloads all their torps, thus yielding high hit rates but dying almost immediately. The second player scouts, contests caps, falls back when necessary, and spams torpedoes consistently throughout the 20 minute duration of the game. The second player will have a lower hit rate, but will be more influential over the course of a game and will likely accrue more damage. Torping is like fishing. You can't force a fish to bite, but the more casts you can make the higher your chances of catching something. Also worth noting... People decry the Shima's low torp hit % compared to other DDs. Please understand that the Shima has the HIGHEST torpedo DPM of any T10 DD in the game. If the detection of Shima torps was reduced, the ship would be unquestionable OP. Shima (Type 93 mod 3) torpedo DPM is: 77% higher than Gearing and YY 82% higher than Z-52 106% higher than Groz Omitted Khab and Harugumo for obvious reasons.
