I haven't had a Dev strike proper in a while, have they been nerfed? 

What's the best way to get more Dev Strike achievements?

Ok, I edited the post, you have to sink the bote!!

What are your Dev Strike totals?

1) Use battleship AP against broadside cruisers. 

2) Use torpedoes against other DDs, typically in cap circles. 

3) ???

4) Profit.

yeah, I didn't give you the downvote, sorry!

I'll give you an upvote!

The difference between a good strike and dev strike is the percentage of damage dealt on the strike and you've got to sink bote.

To be honest, I thought it was a comedy thread when I answered. It wasn't until I came back that I realized you were serious.

1177 Dev Strike medals over here. Torpedoes are probably responsible for most of them all though a well aimed salvo of BB AP earns a fair number of them. Most cruiser don't have enough Alpha Strike damage to really get one unless you get lucky or detonate a poor Fun and Engaged individual.

OP: You use a Haida, because of all the people on Earth who might kill you, the Canadians are the most polite about it. :Smile_teethhappy:

3 x AP bombs

auto dropped

on a marinated bb

always remember to salute fallen enemies

"enjoy" is a good one, others just o7, but I prefer to say "sorry", but all are fine, and are perfectly in tune with fairplay, and a game that is designed for us all to have fun, and enjoy.

I agree, a salute is proper.

Would "enjoy" be a little too polite?

It can't be, I mean we're not here for the Dev Strikes, we're here to make friends and have fun!

Dev strikes are part of the game, part of the fun, when you are deleted from a battle, you are expected to enjoy it, just like we are expected to enjoy the game, win or lose. Ain't that right?

631, last one being in Kami R seeing as it uses the unnerfed IJN torps. At least a couple in Gaede/T-22 (as the torps they have are essentially the same as Kami R in time to react, range, just a tad less speed so they get 1.3 km spotting, like all other ship torps between I think it's 60-65 or 61-65 knots, as opposed to Kami clone 1.4 km for 66 knots and up - again, consistent with other ships). 

Stationary ships in smoke and any torp.

The salt from the ones I get from fires and floods (because those count when they do enough damage) from my CV's without manual drop is glorious. Less so the ones with manual drop cause well.... not really a challenge. 

By far my favourite though are the 10-11 of them (I may have forgotten to mark one) that are Atlanta's detonated by HE. 

And while I think it is pre wipe - the BB that took one HE bomb hit and it detonated. Back in the full health days, left both of us stunned and confused. 

Edit: Make that 632, last one in DoY on a La Gall that never saw me coming as he went up the straight to cap our base.

Here's a thought.

Get a Dev Strike and don't do anything but continue to play the game.

Too many "look at me" [edited] running around.

Most of these with a high skill t8 premium CV. of course, I always try to salute my sunken targets with a flyover, wreathe and an apology. The best kinds of sunken opponents are of course, those that reply, sportingly, "Well done," more rarely, but definitely quality players, reply "I enjoyed that, thankyou."
