"a single BB shell should be able to cut a DD in half!!!1!!" -- says every braindead BB main

as a DD player, I would be fine with that if a single torp hit would for example, jam the BBs rudder for the remainder of the game, or flood the BB so that the speed is reduced to 1/4 of its top speed for the remainder of the game, ect

 

cant wait for the incoming BB AP nerf when hitting DDs, bc right now their AP does way too much dmg to DDs

Its rng with that crapman, sometime u get wrecked if u overextended or got lit up with radar, sometimes u wreck them.  Run survivability expert on your dds, you will last longer.

So you just want BBs to be floating xp pinatas for your torping pleasure, where they can't fight back all and can only sit back and let you [edited] them into oblivion and not be able to defend themselves at all?

 

Sure buddy, but only if cruisers get to [edited] you with their never ending radar that can magically see through islands and smoke while being able to tank all of your weapons with ease while you can only sit back and take it without being able to defend yourself at all. :cap_book:

Cut DD in half. Sounds like a specialization/national flavor thing. Maybe a second Japanese line with Ronin or Samauri theme. Oh! I have it! Something like the porcupine trucks from mad max fury road! It’s a ship that has a giant saw blade on some long azz articulated arm. You stun the enemy crew with HE, shoot out the engine and then pull alongside to cut them in half!

This was my solution to the Asian carp taking over our river systems

Then again, if we're going for "reality" here, the torpedo bulge of the GK would work considerably better than the bulge of the Yamato.  Large void bulges fill with water quite quickly, cause severe listing, and slow the ship quite a bit.  Liquid-filled baffled bulges maintain a rough equilibrium when hit, don't flood out, and only reduce speed due to changes in hydrodynamics.

OP has no idea. If this were REAL LIFE, our multtude of secondaries would be manually controllable, and could easily put an end to this debate.

 

Think Missouri is mean with radar and 16 inchers? wait til you think you are safe at 10km, and then all of our 5 inch DP guns open up on your ship, let alone the 16 inch 2700 lb. volkswagons.

 

 

Both sides of your argument can happen, OP: Sometimes, the 16 inch shell overpens or even ricochets at an angle.... Sometimes it punches right into your ammo/torp stowage, and you detonate...

 

And, sometimes the BB is not so easy to kill with a single DD, sometimes its too easy.

BB AP darn near does that now.

 

But yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing more info on the nerf.

I have a huge haul of DDs killed by BBs, many by my secondaries, including a couple of double kills. It is not easy in a slow BB, but decent gunnery helps. A lot! And I have been sunk just as often by a stealth torping DD without being able to do anything about it! Much Ado About Nothing...its' a game. Live with it!
