In WW2 torpedo's were treated like gold. In this game DD's can fire 12+ at one time....please make it realistic.

Too many torps means me and my team aren't doing a good job in eliminating the threat.   Even worse than your example, is dancing your BB around 11 of the torps, catching one, repair the flooding, only to see 12 more torps that were cross-dropped by another unseen DD.

At that point, I'll give 'em a kudos in chat for being an effective DD team.

In WW2 there were two dozen destroyers to each battleship. Still want to make it realistic?

Alright then, because "realism" you should also allow destroyers to respawn ten times for every battleship in the match. Happy?

Oh, and also for realism, we gotta remove time compression too, it'll take the entire battle just to get moving.

And because realism is so precious to you, after the hours it'll take to actually sight the enemy, it'll take another ten minutes just to have one side land a single shot because of realistic shell hit rates.

 

Still trying to drag realism into this game?

Okay, let's make it realistic: if you ever get sunk you can never play the game again.

I am starting to think the forum bot posts topics like this--"too many torps", or "buff this" or "nerf that"... just to give us dialectical catnip to get us reacting. Of course the best bait to deploy still, is "WHY NO SUBS??"

Okay, cool.

 

And running 1 battleship will cost you 10 million credits per match.

 

Still want to bring realism into it?

In other words, do away with 99.9% of the game, because pretty much NONE of it is actually "realistic".

But I thought actual warships simply came to a halt with no damage after they rammed into islands?

The only thing particularly realistic about this game is the detailed and mostly accurate modeling of the ships, and the fairly realistic (though simplified) ballistic/penetration model.  The actual gameplay mechanics are pure videogame and should remain as such.

I'm out...my worst fear is dying of lack of breath!  You can shoot me, blow me up, best my head in with a bat. I just don't want to die gasping for breath.

I would personally prefer drowning over being gummed to death by several dozen toothless badgers.

Used to have a board game called, "Sub Search". It was kinda like battle ship and 3 dimensional chess rolled into one. It was really fun.

I think they should bring in bot-subs for convoy missions... DDs get depth charges and amped up sonar--wthn?

Less then a minute to spot a carrier deck and get 6 flights in the air. Sounds realistic to me.
