Torpedo protection system (slot #5):

- Replaces the "Target Acquisition System Modification 1" and will give the following bonuses:
-- Allows for torpedoes to be detected at a fixed distance of 1.8 km, regardless of the torpedoes' detectability range ("Vigilance" skill will improve it);
-- Add +5% to ship's torpedo protection.

 

Wth is that? Another buff on bbs? Why not give alread totaly imunity to torps to the most op (in avg stats) class from this game?

They still have to be lacking in intelligence enough to take it over concealment....

Remember: you'll have to give up concealment expert  error, I meant Concealment Systems Mod 1, in order to use it.

And get almost 2KM of torpedo detection, also increase the torpedo protection.

Its make almost impossible to kill a bb (unless he is brainless) with torps without extreme fast torps.

Alsot they plan change the IFHE to burn less the bbs.

Thats just ridiculous.

I took TASM1 on my Bismarck in Ranked Sprint 1v1 because (a) I had one lying around that I'd won somewhere and (b) I actually benefited from it in that meta. 

I assume that with all these changes we'll be getting a window of free demounts and (hopefully full-cost) compensation for modules that are being deleted outright from the game.

So we lose an all-around spotting upgrade (the TASM1) for this silly thing? 

OK, whatever.

Which may become a real choice, when our 5th ship type enters the game....

Thats different. If you have to get concealed with a BB in a 1v1 like that, then chances are, that player is going to lose anyways. 

Tasm in that case is completely justified. You know what your situation is going to be and concealment in a 1v1 is pretty much useless in a bb

To be fair though, how much usage do people really get out of it now that isn't torp-oriented?

DDs benefit from the 3km proxy spotting most, but I don't know anyone that would give up the concealment mod for it on their DD.

I mean, it's not that useful for cruisers, they have hydro for close spotting of DDs.

BBs get the most out of the mod, but for them, it's all about the torp detection anyway.

Not really imo given that homing keel breakers won't give a care about being seen from 1.8km away nor that increase to TDS.

And several of my BBs have it mounted, because I hate the concealment meta.

You sir need to learn how stats work so you don't continue with the delusion of BBs being the most OP class.

It has fast torp reload, I hit plenty of torps in it. They are also adding a mod that will give a boost to your torp speed, which will directly counter some of the buffs this mod gives.

Thank you for demonstrating your lack of understanding in the world of statistics so well for me.

The "2-ping homing" function likely isn't going anywhere, but I wouldn't be surprised if the ease of getting those 2 pings and/or torp maneuverability, were tweaked multiple times.

For all we know, it might end up somewhat difficult to get 2 pings on maneuvering targets, or they reduce the range of the pings, and a spread of "dumb" fish becomes a viable option.

If the player is clueless enough to be running that mod over conceal, I bet you they will still take plenty of torps or get murdered by everyone else due to their awful detection.

So. If I am reading this correctly, WG just eliminated 100% of the benefit of deep water torpedos, while leaving 100% of their weaknesses in place?

Still easier and more effective to use then a cv's torp planes.  But it does seem a bit extreme to me.

DD players never cease to amaze me, especially since they are getting a soft Last Stand in the form of the duel upgrade merging (not like DCSM1 was worth it anyway).

Dont forgot the most of people in this game is not super unicum, they going see "oh, this increase my protection of torps i'm going take that!".

Ok they can be murded because they awful detection... but murded by other bbs (sinse they also going nerf the IFHE fire chance), what the fun on that for you playing a DD? Get boring games only spotting?

And i'm just talking about randons not super competitive games.
