This ship requires the whole team to prioritize its destruction with its 16 torpedo's ever 30 seconds. It is a BORE to play against. Block all Benham players please.

If you want to post a troll at least limit your claims to the mildly ludicrous instead of the completely outrageous ... 16 torps every 30 seconds. Riiiiiiight.

Wiki: "In game you can get the torpedo reload down to 65 seconds, firing up to 16 torpedoes." Sorry a little exaggeration let's make it 8 torps every 30 secs. Still outrageous. Ban it from ranked and blacklist the players playing it.

So in an average 13 minute game the Benham can fire 192 torps, while the T9 prodigious torpedo pusher, the Yugumo, with its torpedo reload booster, can get only 88. Hopelessly, hopelessly wrong. 

(13x60/65x16) = 192        (13x60/97x8) + (13x60/(228+8)x8) = 88

Only if you ban carriers first.

You forgot to remove the 1st 65 secs of the game for the 1st load and also the fact the Benham has 2x4 on each side so requires a turn to launch from the other side ... if you want to be certain of the count!

I personally have no seen so many Benhams to in my opinion consider it as a major problem.

I suggest you play Ranked at specific times of the day (which I don't know) or at later sprints - when all the Benhams are usually at another league. Just feel bad for some of them that are just trying their hardest to get to Rank 1, so they bring the best ships.

Try to be think positive. Have a good day!

100k? No problem:Smile_trollface:

On another note, how much money would you actually need to whale it?

I'm probably not trying to calculate how much brrr I need to get it

Nothing has changed. Benhams still rule just because of what I've said and the rest of us have to suck Russian wind...

Oh Benham, I sank a few of them in rank with my Marceau, even alone in some cases.

Marceau is probably the most grossly OP destroyer in Ranked. I love it.

Wows Numbers tracks the win rates of ships in Ranked.

Benham is definitely up there, but there's about 7 ships higher than it.

Black has absolutely miserable torpedoes and it's doing more than 70 basis points higher, so I wouldn't say that the torpedoes are as devastating as targeted destroyer removal.

We must ban the ALABAMA... by the numbers, it's the MOST overpowered and also the weakest one...

The fact that lousy Captains can still lose in a Benham is a red herring. The ship is vastly over torpedoed and it is a threat to anyone's idea of play balance. 

In an average 13 minute game the Benham can fire 192 torps, while the T9 prodigious torpedo pusher, the Yugumo (others are less) with its torpedo reload booster, can get only 88. Hopelessly, hopelessly wrong. 

(13x60/65x16) = 192        (13x60/97x8) + (13x60/(228+8)x8) = 88

If only we had a skill that allowed for +20% detection range to torpedoes.... If only we had a skill that allowed for faster rudder shift to aid in dodging.... If only we had consumables that increased torp spotting range (Hydro).... You have a good 9 - 10 seconds to dodge them....

Your first three sentences explain exactly what the Benham is, a norm limit shattering ship, immediately made illegal to aquire.

9 - 10 seconds to dodge YOU SAY. Well let's see, 8 torps every 30 seconds is an easy slalaam of walls of 8. Any ship that takes a hit will probably pop repair party and then die in the next 30 second wall. BBs are especially liable to die. Farming ships with 8 walls, I like it?
