There have been at least 2 reports of this since the recent patch.

There have been reports of recent teamkills too. Hmm...

Mine launch perfectly.  When no enemies are around and im trying to unF this second failed WOWS WG patch.

I make a perfect torp run on a BB?  Hit the launch 7 times. 

If they launch at all, they FIRE STRAIGHT OUT OF THE BOW, AHEAD!!!

 

I am now friggin pink.  I run vanilla no mods.

I uninstalled the whole damned POS gayme.

Re installed for over an hour.

 

NO FIX NO CHANGE

Few folks on reddit say they've had this happen. 

That's crazy talk about making sure the backblast area is clear lmbo.

This happens to me too atleast once every game in a DD 

For me its only DDs that are affected, cruiser and cv torps are all fine.

Sometimes the torps wont even shoot at all too, click and nothing happens.  cost me quite a bit of kills already

I also had this issue. At first I thought it was just my mouse or lag, but it appears its happening to others as well.

So Far, here's what I've identified as the issue:

 

Locking your Main Armament (Main guns) on a position (by hitting CTRL+X) will bug your torpedo tubes.

If you rotate the torpedo tubes while your Main Guns are Locked the tubes will visually rotate, and show the launch indicator as green, but will either

1) Not fire at all when you mouse click, and give the message "Aiming Guns" if you click the mouse repeatedly.

or

2) Fire in reverse.

I have not yet been able to determined why sometimes they fire in reverse vs. not firing at all. But so far in my testing both issues have something to do with Locking your Main Armament.

Unlocking your Main Armament (Main Guns) so they are no long targeting a specific location appears to fix the bug and allow you to fire correctly.

 

If you are playing ranked, please keep this in mind and try and keep your guns from being locked so you don't TK allied ships.

I use guns on my DDs so destroyers are pretty much unplayable for me until this gets fixed, meaning I can't use my main ship for ranked.

Same thing happened to me as well, and I happened to hit an allied Iowa who had already damage controlled a fire. Who then nearly flooded to death, and gave me team-killer status.

I'm not even sure what to make of this bug.

I also had this happen 2 games in a row, in the last 30 minutes. Both of my initial torp salvos in both games went in random opposite directions, directly into my team. The second instance killed me and gave teamkiller status.

 

As one who prefers DDs in ranked this basically makes the game completely unplayable. I am not pleased.

Well I have also had this issue and like what was said above, I lock my main guns ALOT! That is probably the issue, however I have had it happen when they weren't locked too so it could just be a small bug that needs to be fixed

No emergency fix for this bug that essentially makes an entire ship class unplayable on the busiest time of the year? Interesting.
