Quit complaining about RDF

Let's call it what it is.  It's a cruiser buff.  Since when are cruisers so OP that people complain about buffing them.  They ought to give this skill to USN cruisers for free.

 

Battleships aren't going to take it.  There are far far more important things to take.  Any smart BB captain has a long list of skills that will add value to their game, ahead of this, highly situationally-useful skill.

 

Cruisers are the real beneficiaries here, with the speed, and reload time to take advantage of this skill.  Plus DDs can use it to avoid surprise cruiser attacks.  So basically, the people complaining about this skill, are the ones most likely to use it.

Yep. I hope RPF makes a lot of these crying potatos quit the game. The toxicity in chat will go down very quickly. :)

its not a cruiser buff, its a buff for BB's who will less likely get surprise torpedo by cruisers and dd's with low concealment...

same goes for CV. so less sneak attacking for destroyers, ow my another destroyer nerf to cater the potatoes that dont wsad...

 

WG if you ever need money? hosting an IRL event and make sure to place a dunk-booth with the dev who made this up sitting on the board.

 

edit: frankly the two posters above me are almost pure BB players... what a shock

Actually it's a DD buff, especially IJN but the chicken Little doom sayers are too blinded by their own fear mongering and tears to figure it out.

It's a direct nerf to IJN destroyers. Not a buff to cruisers.

 

From tiers 6-9, IJN destroyers are the ships most reliant on stealth and also the slowest ships in the game that aren't battleships. Cruisers can catch them, destroyer-hunting destroyers in the US and RU lines can catch them.

 

Straight up nerf to the Japanese, who are already the worst performing destroyers in the game (Akizuki aside).

What part of "battleships won't take this skill, they've got too many better options to take instead" don't you understand?

How can you be so consistently wrong? Is it effort or does it come naturally?

 

Are you naturally adept at theory crafting doom for your favorite boats, or has it developed over time?

Did you even read the patch notes before you flip out? The skill doesnt work on CVs and BB's are not likely to take it due to other skills with more utility for 4 points.

Instead of insulting me, why don't you explain why I am wrong, or have you never played a Japanese destroyer past Minekaze?

 

the only thing RPF will do for Japanese destroyers is tell me what side I'm going to get killed from.

IMPROVISE

 

ADAPT

 

 

OVERCOME...

 

that will be the key to figuring out how to keep playing the game you play, the way you play it and STILL 
A-have fun
B-..... well what more is there to the game than having fun.... it is just a game.... and no one will likely make THAT big a difference with this skill to make people stop playing... I know I accept this challenge HEAD ON!!!!

Still works in their favor for guards. so my point still stands.

I wouldn't be so tired of doing that if major nerfs to my main class hadn't forced me to do that 10 times (or more) already this year.

I dunno, I play a lot of BBs lately, and I'm not going to even glance at this skill. Not saying it wouldn't be handy, it's just the least useful 4-pt. skill for me.

For me RPF would be the first choice for any ship that it would work on, that much free info is worth both the 4 pts and the sacrifice of another 4 pt skill.

indeed.. I mean why would a BB take a skill that directly points to hunting DDS (yeah seeing torps would help)  that most are not going to do anyway..

I mean for this to work for a BB that BB would have to be, UP IN THE FIGHT.... not sniping from the border.....

the meta will not change so this skill will not help BBs be better at sniping....

RPF will effect BBs the least. They will be far an above the least likely class to actually take this skill.

 

 

It's not a "buff" to anything.

 

It is simply more information spoon fed. It will not help the morons that it is intended to help but it WILL make already skilled players even more deadly and water down high level play. It will remove sneak attack options, and juke plays during the most intense and interesting points of game play, it will punish players for doing nothing wrong and playing the game properly as they are detected before anyone in the game ever spots them, and it is going to put anyone that is playing around an island without the skill at a major disadvantage.

 

If you don't understand the mentality of the NA player base by now, and how it tends to react to the addition of information or threat of unknowable damage risk, you probably never will, or are simply to blind in your own "this is how it is going to work idea" to see that both of those two things have, in the past, translated to CAMPING to solve the issue.

 

 

Good players with RPF = buff

Good players without RPF = nerf

Marginal players with RPF = BIG buff

Marginal players without = nuetral

Bad players with RPF = nerf

Bad players without = nerf

 

High level game play with RPF = BIG NERF

The watch-ability of streaming competitive games = buff

 

 

 

That will be the outcome, the type of ship that is running RPF is inconsequential.

Would work for protecting themselves vs DDs that sneak up. OW MY the entire point of stealth DDs removed...

well.. I have been playing since public opening over a year ago... and have had to endure much.... never really complained about the patches when they came... AFT was bad but still got by....

I like playing... I done like the WAY people play in NA now.... so the changes hardly bother me more than the fact that I think 60% of the player base has no CLUE what the meta for their ship SHOULD BE.. they just sit back and cower all game....

it is sad that the PLAY is worse than the changes they are making.. but is seems that ranting about the PATCHES is better than ranting about the Potatoes, because you cant really fix stupid, you can just change the game for them,....

Took my words and said it better. Agreed. I am of the same position and opinion.

I enjoy playing Yuugumo with the 8km F3 torps. I love playing Fujin. With both ships, the closer I get to my target victim while staying just outside detection (5.5 km ~) the higher the probability of success. This often requires getting off to the side of my fleet a bit. How the heck am I going to play these ships with RDF in the game?  It doesn't matter which enemy ship has this ridonkulous skill!  And I won't know whether or not a ship has it until that cruiser charges me, that dumb BB going through islands suddenly goes in reverse and hard turn, etc.

Straight up nerf to the Japanese, who are already the worst performing destroyers in the game (Akizuki aside).

Even Akizuki is likely only preforming as well as she is because unicums are playing her. Most pubbies likely aren't attracted to her since she does not lead to a tier 10.

It tells you when a ship using RDF is locked on to your bearing. You'll know a ship has it long before any ship starts charging you.
