Deep water Torps for all DD's

 Granted I do not play Destroyers I am almost an exclusive Battleship player so this may not be a good thing but why not have all DD's have a choice between deep water torps and regular torps just like battleships have a choice of AP and HE ammo. It seems to make sense, I am pretty sure you adjusted a dial on the torpedo to tell it how deep to run. With the long cool down cycle of Torpedos, it would add a bit of tactical thinking for the DD player and add a bit of high-risk high reward meta to the game. Just a crazy idea that came to my head. What do you think community?

For the love of all that is holy, please no.  We don't need any more DWT's added to the game.

But if they were, I'd force the captain to specify which torps in port and be stuck with that type the entire match.  Kind of how the new Graf Zeppelin works, I believe.

Ah yes extensive battleship experience with 10 battles. Post with you actual account rather than trolling with an alt.

I find it hilarious that people will say that just because you are on an alt account what you have to say is somehow invalid. That is pretty stupid in my opinion.

saying your on your alt can be a expression anyone can use. if you want to prove that you actually have experience playing this game then gtfo you're alt and log into the main account you have.

Destroyers are already the highest risk, lowest reward ship type. This isn't necessary, needed, or wanted.

Then you shouldn't be posting with an alt.

The suggestion at top of thread was stupid. Your defense of an alt acct is stupid.

As a cruiser main I would be fine with every DD being forced to only have the Asashio style DWT's. But I suspect I will be among few who views this as the obvious across the board CA/CL buff that it would be.

i have but one question as to your suggestion of DWT on all DDs, maybe for IJN because, lets face it, they need all the help they can get in the torpedo department

The guessing games would be intense if you had to guess if every DD equipped DWT or not. Panasian's DD may lose value for it too, so no.

That wasn't my suggestion in the original post. I said DD's should have the option and be able to switch during gameplay. Kind of like how battleships and cruisers can switch back and forth between AP and HE ammo.
