Having fought against a Benham today, I think it needs more torps

There was a spot on the ocean that it didn't put a torp in.  A small spot, but still, it needs just a few more and then it can put torps everywhere. Because who wants to have a chance to dodge them anyway? What's the sport in that? 

Seriously, wth?

Maybe wg could put some roof bars on it so it can carry 2 extra sets of quad launchers

But CVs can put planes everywhere and that's just fine? Kick rocks!

DDs already have a (pardon the D&D reference) (bottomless) Bag of Holding full of torpedoes.  What's next?  Give them unlimited torpedo launchers too?

Please tell me exactly when in the match your CV runs out of planes?

1. When you get the number of planes on their flight deck so low that they have to choose between waiting minutes for the squadrons to regenerate or launch understrength (sometimes severely so) squadrons.

2. Please tell me exactly when in the match your DD runs out of torpedoes.  Please tell me exactly when your ships run out of shells for their guns.

When you get the number of torps in their tubes so low that they have to choose between waiting minutes for the tubes to reload or just commit suicide and shoot off your guns.

The same way you run out of planes, by using them unwisely, shooting them all off at once, and having to wait for minutes until they reload.

Well now you're just being silly, as we both know they "proved" a long time ago that there wasn't one ship in the game that could fire out it's magazines in twenty minutes. And you've been here since the game went live, so I know you have seen the posts.

When do CVs have to worry about line-of-sight to target?

I wish we had a Kitakami with 15km torpedos in the game. Then people would know true torpedo terror.

I'd pay for a premium DD that had nothing but Torp launchers and no guns.   Say, 5x5 launchers on a 120s cooldown or so?   Would also need best in tier AA though.

I don't actively play in this server. So what? Your 15k games means nothing if you have not learned anything from it.

Same, if I'm a bottom tier CV, I have to painstakingly pre-drop my squads so they don't get all get shot down at once in a few seconds after entering AA range. 

Sometimes that's a bad idea though.

Benham will probably get nerfed before release, it's a bit too OP right now. I'm guessing the torpedo reload time will be increased, if nothing else.

Or it would be given Benson torps.

You don't actively play on this server, just drop in occasionally to dispense bitterness, negativity, and a complete lack of social skills. What I have learned from reading your posts is you are a sad and petty person who rarely has anything positive to say, but this is still America so you just Troll on if that's what makes you happy. Enjoy that smallness.

Benson torps will be really painful for a T9 torpedo DD, 9.2km range is horrid against most radar cruisers that you're likely to see at that tier. They should keep the range, and nerf other characteristics. Reload is an obvious solution; or maybe keep the reload and nerf alpha by 3-5k.
