Found pictures that far too often accurately depicts how BBs react when seeing a little DD...

The BBs after seeing a DD in a cap zone...

Yeah I mean some BBs can get blindsided by their Torps or can’t see a smoked DD. If I see smoke and lack hydro I simply Torp  the smoke if I lack Torps or simply prowl nearby waiting for that smoke timer to end of the DD to leave the smoke...

Those little guys are so fun to shoot at after all lol.

Which is the source of every DD complaint on the Forum.

Both my Republique and Alsace sexually identify as gunboat DDs. Their preferred pronoun is "what the f***  is that BB really chasing a DD out of the cap point?"

Been watching Dumbo again, eh?  What did I tell you about that?  Way too applicable to be considered childrens' fare. 

 

"Eek!  A rodent!"

Yep, that's why an Asashio finally killed me when I was in my Normandie, while trying to remove a splinter from my thumb (hit battle, thought the thing poking and irritating my thumb was something on the mouse, suddenly realized it was a small splinter and had to scramble to find tweezers and try and play to avoid the penalty).

My usual tactic, especially in German BB's, is best summed up by Porthos in "Man in the Iron Mask" - "Why don't we charge them?"

And my thinking goes to something like this 

Give-Them-Nothing-But-Take-From-Them-Eve

or this 

 

Mostly those first two though, crush your enemies and see them driven before you. Last one doesn't really apply to the game. Unless you want to count the lamentation of the DD that couldn't hit your BB with torps and was shot blindly while firing in smoke. 

Cause honestly, my survival rate against DD's at 6-7 km is likely higher than at 8-15, probably because they expect me to run and when I don't go "of crap what do I do now"

Yup. Ita hilarious how many DD drivers freak when a BB player charges them. And as long as you are smart about it and have good situational awareness, its not only the most aggressive play, its safer than backing off. You don't want to overextend and get torped by his buddy around the corner or get focused down, but if you can charge him without exposing yourself too greatly, you're bow on so you'll eat fewer torps (if any...i can quite often slide right through a narrow spread at anything over knife range even in a fat-assed ship like Republique) and if you can kill him he can't torp you from stealth later. Even if you can just hurt him badly before he can escape,  there's a good chance he'll play more cautiously and thus less effectively from that point forward.
