When MM doesn't give you a battle with a DD that you can bully and you have to go bully other ships. Time for torpedobote Haida and a single quad torpedo launcher.

Remember kids, don't rush the middle in Two Brothers.

Yes, and I did solo cap the enemy base at the end.

the torps reload fast enough to launch them twice in one smoke, that's for sure.

Ah yeah that was a crazy battle, we won by him capping with about 15 seconds left on the counter and they were up on points.

Those are the best...both of my solo warriors were won that way.

I played a couple games in it. Not the best impression really for me. Second game got det from another DD flinging HE. If you have to run det flags just to trade HE with another DD, there are better DD's as options.

Getting detonated is always a risk in a DD.  At lower and mid tiers, I do not bother with det flags.  I want to farm det flags at those tiers … sorta.

Its a risk for all ships. What rubs wrong is that it was HE and another DD. I can accept being blapped by a BB or CA but detonated by another DD when this boat is supposed to be a gunship really feels all sorts of wrong. I'm even running the 70% reduction to magazine detonation. in two games one being a det leaves a bad taste in ones mouth. Almost all IJN DD's of the same tier are superior so this POS will just end up a port queen.

You just had bad luck... Overall none of the IJN DDs are superior over the Haida...

Better start playing again ;)

 

OT: good job, OP (:

Haida's armor gets shredded by Yugumo guns in a 1v1 DD gunfight.

I was in a Yugumo gun fighting a Haida while it was doing the smoke stream thing and was surprised by how I kept dealing 2k+ damage to the ship every time it peaked out of the smoke bubble before a new one appeared. I basically just gunned it down this way even when it tried to return fire.

That sounds like incompetence of the Haida player lolz.

You are comparing different tiers. Duh.

This also sounds like Haida driver's fault. I would have skedaddled if I got in that situation; (yes I do have both Haida and Yugumo and I a a DD main so I know how to handle them).

I have had a less distinguished torpedoboat moment and here's a warning.

Get into smoke, Scharnhorst comes around a corner 4km away. Bring up the torpedo launcher.

Fire one fish.

Loader starts reloading...

Single fish hits Scharnhorst plumb in the middle.

I'd somehow fired 3 fish rather than 4 on my last go and had been carting around a single torpedo for about 3 minutes!

 

Remember kids, fully discharge your torpedo tubes!
