dd should be one shot by bb

in wows, dd takes the role of arty in wot, deleting ships using op torpedo soup without being seen.

invisibility and high speed make them impossible to kill

this is not balanced at all, if bb is in a 1vs1 dual with a dd even 2 tiers lower, dd always win

invisible ship + 100k damage and instant reload torpedo soup superweapon + smoke HE spam = borderline OVERPOWERED

so how to balance dd? we use the wot mechanism. when arty is lit and got hit, it just die with one shot

when hit by bb gun, dd should instant die like arty in wot

because the sheer size of a bb shell should be enough to break the dd in half and cause magazine explosions

Shell has to hit something solid to go off, most BB shells would go through and through a DD, and you see this in real life where the Destroyer Escort Samuel B. Roberts took 40 hits from Japanese battleships before the 41st hit the engine and exploded, destroying the ship

Some times the only proper thing to do is drop your drawers and take a crapright in the middle of the room before doing so.

I know it's pointless but a little knowledge of naval history won't do any harm. I mean, the Sammy B charged the Yamato, that was something

Just equip accuracy mod and then proceed to catch the DD in a turn.

Back in the day of fail divs low tier IJN DDs were good at trolling liquidators and witherers on high tier BBs.

Bahaha...... ... wait.. You're serious? reallyblinking.gif.2e315e7c3ca74b43f5df50cc03e8a8af.gif

Because Carriers aren't a thing to mention now?

I think the real problem here is you're not at dodging..

Awww, damnit. Ignoring a user only stops you from seeing what they wrote. It doesn't allow you to make the thread itself disappear :(

Mostly against people like you who can't be bothered to press any of the following buttons: A, S, D, Q, E.

Because obviously you just shoot at the midsection of a DD expecting to hit it. I bet that's what you do with cruisers and other BBs too. Hey, do you also like to sit 20km away from any cap? 

53 minutes ago, Kaa1el said:

Because DD is supposed to win against a BB. A BB should never be caught in a 1v1 scenario without backup against a DD.

There's just sooooo many things wrong with this statement. 

Radar is a thing. 

100k damage is nearly impossible on most games. 

Torpedoes do not reload instantly. Fun fact. 

Torpedoes are not superweapons either. You don't just randomly die from one torpedo hit. 

All a DD can pen on a battleship is its superstructure.

I thought arty doesn't just randomly *die* in one hit. DD is also more closely related to scout class light tanks.

Again. Pretty sure that isn't true.

Because obviously breaking a ship in half also has the side effect of causing magazine explosions. 

Also, a 46-cm hole on a 100m+ destroyer (Fletcher is as long as 114m, for reference) would certainly cause a DD to instantly explode. It must be.

I can't tell if troll or serious.

Tell you what, if you give DDs heal, thick armor belts, and 50-100k hp,  you can take their smoke and concealment. Except oh wait then you'd have all BBs and the game would be boring af. 

I have zero problems with DDs playing a BB. I WASD like a madman, and I know how to aim. 

Judging from your logic fail here, you may not be able to get gud. But at least get less ungud.

People like this guy are the reason IJN destroyers were nerfed through the ground, because they don't know how to dodge torpedoes
