It would be a power boost but they really need to buff the torps themselves (like speed and detection range) for it to be OP. IMO.

You could have the booster only reload a single launcher instead of all three.

 

Maybe.

Imagine 80 in about 40 seconds. Dump 20, flip sides, drop another 20, reload boost, dry runs repeat. And imagine 3 in a division.

 

Kitakami with a reload boost. So many torps you could walk across the map and not get your feet wet.

240. I'd rather not.

 

Half the computers in the game would just melt.

That sounds like a fun boss mode... 

 

Give volunteers a SuperKitKat with 500k HP, no guns, but great AA and ultra heal. Players can queue for a PVP scenario where they fight a volunteer SuperKitKat and test their dance moves.

 

So many torps....

Kitakami's were only tier 8 and they were so thin skinned they got deleted rather quickly. Imagine an Atlanta in open waters but with less health.

With 20km torps with its reduced effectiveness, they will deny the enemy ships movement temporarily nothing more. 

At that Tier, most players are cognisant of Shimakaze's presence. If they aren't, they have over looked at the power of ninja torp boats.

Now if you're talking about a Shimakaze with mid range torps with Captains skill perks such as; Torpedo Reload, Torpedo speed. As well as a torpedo reload booster module. It may be an interesting thing to entertain. :)

15 torps x 2 is 30 from each ship x 3 ships in a division = 90 torpedoes. It would translate into lots of torpedo beat reels.

Ah yes... I can see it now.

Lots of torpedoes harmlessly swimming by ships. Boy that red team makes for good photo ops since none of them are getting blown to bits...

Just a quick question. Just how OP would it be to give Shimakaze the torpedo reload booster consumable?

 

We used to have a ship called Kitakami IJN cruiser that could launch 40 torps in one salvo.(*)

So if you div three of them, you will see 120x torps in the water. So you can have ~ 350 torps at any given moment from all DDs in the match- so be careful what you wish for.

 

The ship ended in TK Hall of Fame since there were more friendlies kills than enemies- so it wasn't just a dream but a nightmare for the team.

It was just a blip in wows dev history but it was wacky enough I still remember those days because I was sure to be torp when I see a Kitakami on my team.

 

Here are some game plays on youtube:

Sweet dream to you.

 

(*) someone corrected me later in the thread, Kitakami has 20x torp on each side so you have to turn the ship to have 40x torps salvo.

Not that I disagree with the sheer number of torps Kitakami can puke out. But she can "only" launch 20 per salvo. She needs to turn around to launch the other 20. The thing is quite slow both on speed and turn. So I wouldn't call that 40 fish salvo.
