Wargamming  answer to world of torpedos is more torpedos.  In this world of  historically inaccurate  online fantasy game  torpedos rule. In the real world and in real history they do not and never did. Have fun living the dream world of  the internet.

I think you misunderstand the concept of this game. This is a naval game, not a naval simulation. If you dislike the way this game is designed based on historical accuracy, you can go find yourself another one.

Actually, the answer to torpedoes is more smoke. Get your math right. :trollface:

 

Formula here: t*OP+HE/Fire-flood+EZMode*lolwut-BaBBie= smoke.

Actually you will find torps were pretty dam effective in real life, launched from subs, planes and ships.

Says the OP who swam into a wall of torps and got owned; ergo, mad.

I thought about world of torpedoes last night as I threaded myself through a salvo fired by a Blys...the good news is that it turned into world of 203mm HE right after that ;).

In a game when 1 ships equals 1 ship, then torpedoes are unlimited. If the game was points based then it could be more of a historical simulation, and you would need to find something else to complain about.,

Play a destroyer sometime. Gives you a healthy appreciation for torps.

 

Lol just don't play a low-tier IJN DD. You'll only reinforce your current view. :D

tell that to the ships sunk in the battle of the atlantic, at coral sea, leyte gulf, okinawa,, tell that to bismarck, yamato, barham, indianapolis, etc etc, all having not very pleasant encounters with torpedoes.

If it's all about torpedoes, how is it that guns do so much more damage?

Well, we all know that in order to get Citadelled you have to make a "Mistake", but somehow turning into torps like a dolt isn't considered a "Mistake" by BB captains. Strange indeed.....

164 games in an Isokazee and 56 in a Minekazee.  Hasn't played any higher and hasn't played any other line.  Not particularly hard to torpedo folks in those two.

Each class of ship and weapon has its own distinct advantages and weaknesses. DDs are far more easy to kill with HE than any other ship, and we have radar that can see through land masses (not quite real life either) and sonar. Then the fact that any opposition ship in range will light up a DD as a prime target, that we tend to do most of the point work in many battles, it's often the DD on the short end.

Ah, yes, mistakes like loading into a game with battleships, playing a cruiser at all, being detected...so many "mistakes."  You captured it rather nicely: Lolpencit = just reward for superior battleship übermensch; torpedo strike =  attempt by degenerate untermensch to subvert the purity of pure battleship bloodlines - therefore must be eradicated!

How wrong you are. More ships in world War 2 were lost to torpedoes than any other weapon. Nice to know you don't know how to open a history book.
