I was under the impression that wows was fixing the arming distance after i complained about being torped by an island,  u shouldn't beable to drop torps on an island and kill ships and torps should not arm 15 yards from a ship even with early warning device and captains training u cann't avoid a torp 15 yards away if we PAY in credits and xp to train a captain in a useless function  we are again being ripped off

well that strange, I could never get that to work. The torpedoes always disappear when I launch it near or on islands for me

This is basically a "cry me a river, build be a bridge, and get the expletive over it" thread.

15 meters they would not arm. They have to be dropped about half a KM out and that is pushing it.  Most good cv players will drop them between 1 and 2 km from your ship That gives them time to arm and you little time to evade them. Most lower tier American CVs torpedo range is only 3 to 4 km.

.5km arming distance for USN CVs, and .3km for IJN CVs, IIRC. Though I heard this in 4.1, and I'm not sure if I'm still correct.

how do you measure yards in this game?

 

and if they are dropped within .5km how do you have time to figure the range of them while you are trying to avoid them?

The key to dodging airborne torps is to not dodge the torps, but the planes that carry them.  If you wait for the planes to drop their payload, you deserve every torpedo that hits you.

Yep.  This right here.  It's too late to avoid torpedoes after they've already been dropped.  Pay attention and you'll avoid them completely.

I think the funny thing with all TB complaint threads is that the poster always complains about the torps and never mentions what Tier they are playing.

 

Because honestly, Tiers 4/9/10? I have sympathy for you. Tiers 5-8, cry me a river.

Arming distance as it is fine... dodge the planes like everyone has suggested, works wonders for me.

I find dropping them in the shallows just off the island works amazingly well :)

that actually sounds and feels right with my cv's
