Figure Something Out With Torpedoes

This is ridiculous. I've been playing this game all week and 8/10 times I die from torpedoes instead of any other source and it's pretty frustrating. It actually makes the game boring. Before I started getting to the point to where I even encountered torps at all, the game was real big fun. Now it's just annoying and I find myself constantly wishing the game went in a different direction with that specific mechanic. I thought maybe because I'm still in tier 4-5 that it would just be this mid-tier where it's used most, but is it? Does it get any better later or is this going to get worse? I'll stop playing now if that's the case, and so will the other three friends that play this game.

What type of torpedoes are killing you?

 

If they're ship launched... those can have a minute+ lead time. Change direction and speed often. Point yourself towards or away from any torp carrying ship that's been spotted. If they go broadside, beware, but don't expect visual cues-- just change direction and speed often.

 

If they're air dropped, hang out around AA cover. Move as a fleet so ships have overlapping fields of AA fire. Evasive maneuvers will buy time to let the AA do its job, and the Barrage ability can shield you from drops for a time.

see that big man standing over there in the shadow

 

he's a DD

 

if you know he's there - you know he has thrown some nice slow torpedoes in your direction

 

now if you keep sailing straight ahead ignoring Mr DD

 

those torpedoes will most probably sink you

Dodging torps is easy in DD if you pay attention same pretty much goes for CA, BB can dodge but a little harder do to but possible if you pay attention to what around you..

Fine , however the prior advice stands , tac and change course , it worked in convoy work , and to a lesser degree it works here. As well keep your head on a swivel, don't get tunnel vision.

I love DD's and I can tell you that people dodge torps all the time.. If you let a DD with-in 2 K of you, your done, we can kill you most every time.. But out side of that 2 K you can dodge if your watching.  I love my Mini I launch Torps from 8 K's out.  Keeps me out of diection range and the torps go free.. So if you watching it's over a 1 minute or so before it hits.

And you're posting this on the NA forums. If you're name is the same on EU, you've never died from torpedoes once. Or you've made a new account on NA because you're too afraid of people checking to see if you're lying.

People do realize that the Players section isn't fully working properly yet... right?

Awwwww dude, really. Are you gonna be that ignorant right now? Yeah man, you got me. You're right. I'm talking about a game I've not played and complaining about it for no reason. Like what [edited]planet are you from?

EU account has 30 games -   Although I predict he'll dodge that as well and say "different name" on that server.

The moment you see a DD or CL/CA with torps that can reach you, you should cut speed a bit and change direction. For TBs sail towards TBs and if it is a multiple angle drop...well good luck. I still haven't found a way to dodge multiple angle dropped torps.

Yes, you have 30 games not zero.  Learn to play then complain.

And here is your problem:

Out of those 30 games you survived 4 games.  You can't damage the enemy if you are dead.

 

Yes, I know.  It is easier on your fragile psyche to just say it is because of torpedoes that you have only survived 4 out of 30 games and can't do your own health in damage or at least take out one ship per match.  Not too much to ask that you learn to do that before you blame torpedoes.

There is a weird way to do it, and that is to get the torpedo bombers to drop them one squadron at a time instead of a simultaneous drop.  You do this by basically forcing one of the TB squadrons to change position to stay ahead of you.  It's dodgeable in a cruiser or DD when done like that, but I wouldn't bet on a BB manuevering through them.

Then you can go talk about balls over at the EU forums. We don't want you here.
