What was your first experience against/using deep water torpedoes and what are your thoughts? 

Had mine this week in my Montana, about 2 seconds warning before they hit even with my DD and CA support.  They were apparently outside the detection range of them.  All I can say is holy friggin hell those things are a pain in the a#$.  Not complaining by any means though, all we can do is adapt.  How is your play-style going to change after the update???

I have a feeling my first exp. with deep water torps will be this Wednesday in clan wars.  I know there are players with truckloads of free xp to instantly get tier ten.   I can hear it now....... "dude, I didn't see them!"

First time I saw them was in my Cleveland.  Literally popped up right next to my ship.  

 

Yeah, I got sunk pretty hard.

I think we are going to see hundreds of posts and comments after tomorrow about how those torps need to be stripped form the game.  I really don't mind them even though they took most of my HP out of the game kind of early.   I'm one of those infamous BB mains but I don't hang back and snipe so I don't want to hear it :cap_book:.  I like getting close to the caps and taking advantage of people while taking damage. Plenty of "Surprise Muthaf&^^%" moments.... The smoke change made me adapt a little and not push so far near the caps and I'm worried this may do the same to a lot of BB players.  We will have to see.....

As a DD main, I can’t wait to fight DDs who can’t torp me....

I can definitely see plenty of DD players purposely hunting down Pan Asia for that reason alone.  :Smile_teethhappy:

I see a future where I'm firing torpedoes into smoke a lot.

True!  Do you think the majority will take smoke or radar?

Will see, think radar equipped ships like Atlanta and Belfast at tier 7 will do just fine against the PA DDs.  The Indianapolis is a terrible DD hunter anyway, that will not change.  Fiji very dangerous... think tier 7 cruisers still have some great DD hunters

Have you even looked at the PA DD's that JKN has 360degree guns and also have perma smoke so literally

if there isnt a radar boat around he could sit in smoke for 5-6min straight i think

My thought is to charge the smoke, get in close and use torps when you can.  I think one of the new priorities for non PA DDs will be to hunt the PA DDs early to avoid them flanking a formation and delivering gut-punch torps into the BBs or a CV.

I'm thinking smoke.  It's short-lived, but they can lather, rinse, repeat a lot. I can't find it right now, but I seem to recall reading the radar doesn't stay on very long.  Still useful.  But radar doesn't detect torpedoes like hydro does, and torpedoes may be one of those things the Pan Asian DD players get paranoid about, since they can't return the favor against other DDs.

German DDs with hydro just got even more useful...

Charge smoke so they can radar you wow... wow... might need to go back to the drawing board to out think of that plan

Oh dear.... that doesnt mean, A: kther ships WILL radar you. B: they will detect you defore you detect them. C: your rushing closer to cruisers but go ahead and suscide pal makes it easier for the enemy

Worked fine this morning - took my Clemson out on an early cruise, of course the random had mostly PA DDs, couple of non PA dds, and a CV - couple of Phra smoked up head, they smoked in front of an island, went around the island, hit boost, found them, torpedoed one, the other took off, hit him a couple of times and then a teammate finished him off - will be interesting to see how many DD heavy games there will be for awhile.
