Anyone else believe that bots shouldn't be able to launch torpedoes while they're already dead?  I have died several times in this fashion, and it's a bunch of bullcrap that pisses me off.

Wait till you get a torpedo launched through an Island. Now that is scary.

Well, I don't think they can launch torpedoes through an island, but seriously, bots should not be able to kill you with like 50 fricking torpedoes AFTER you kill them; that, in my opinion, should be illegal.

Honestly dude, with a total of 748 games played, you don't know enough to know what to think yet. Trust me when I say @CLUCH_CARGO is right, torps have been, and can, be fired through islands under the right (or wrong) circumstances.

Torps take, in some instances (Sims) a LONG time to get to their targets; what is killing you is torps fired right before you smoked the bot DD, and reached, and killed, you after the firing bot had died.

Here is some advice. When you deal the fatal blow to a red DD regardless if its a bot or not. There are 5 buttons, these 5 buttons are known as WSADQE hacks, trust me it works. Especially the Q and E buttons which causes your ship to turn hard left or right. After you have mastered this hack your "pissed off" mood will give way to "oh crap I should;ve done this a long time ago". GL and HF

Khan Noonien Singh would have made a great destroyer captain, launching torps before his ship blows up: " To the last, I will grapple with thee... from Hell's heart, I stab at thee! For hate's sake, I spit my last breath at thee!"

Technically that quote is originally from Captain Ahab from Moby [edited].

Someone who plans to one day dance on their English teacher's grave. Had to read Mark Twain too.

Secret tip : torpedo have a longer travel time compared to shell.

 

If you die from bot torps after you killed them, it just mean you didn't expected him to launch torps and kept sailing in that predictable line.

Even the worst players in PVE can have a 90%+ Win Rate.  Can the bots get a break?

Sorry but that point sounds strange a bit. If your launch torpedoes in a bot and your ship is out of HP, than torpedoes must be destructed either?

Basically, it's like I kill an enemy bot cruiser, then 10 seconds later I eat 50 torpedoes.  It's so infuriating that I actually go into a training battle and exert capital punishment on that bot XD.  But launching torpedoes through islands sounds rather farfetched, unless you're talking about launching torpedoes through gaps in between islands.

Hmm, 50 torpedos sounds like you are not wasd ninja or even wasd literate. Also, 50 torps? Dude, that means something else launched torps too and you didn’t spot it. No crusier can spit that many fish save kitakame, and she is a ghost in the tree. TLDR: learn better wasd, learn qe, learn that ships often fire torps well before they’re dead, and therefore you must prepare with WASDQE.

Look, this may sound obvious, but how do you know the torpedoes weren't launched before the ship that carried them was destroyed?  After all, torpedoes take time to reach their intended target area, and you don't spot them until they get very close to you.

There have been countless times where I've sunk a torpedo-armed ship - PvP and Co-ops - only to see their torpedoes coming at me a few seconds later.  It only makes sense that he launched them before he was sunk, not that he somehow miraculously launched them postmortem..

Oh...you have much to see and learn yet, my humble padawan learner. You will see many a thing that leave you wondering W T F....

For those of us that play mainly PVP, magical "death torps" are a "game feature" we just have to deal with. I have had torps appear after a bot dies many times, often appearing even though the bot never reached the angle he needed to fire those torps at me. I have been torped after executing a 90 degree turn, with said torps appearing on my broadside, not my stern. (and no, they were not from another bot. that dd was the last torp carrying ship on their side).

Not much we can do but rant a bit and then go out and slaughter the next set of bots. It's not worth yelling about.

Nope...it's literally fish coming from an island beach right beside you.As if they magically passed through the island.
