Just read the changes , which are made to favour DD's against 1 hit AP.

 

As I am playing DD's myeself a bit I know the feeling of the DD' players. However I also play BB's and I can also already predict the reactions of those with carpets of torpedos filling the screen and no way to defend yourself after this is implemented but to rely on your secondaries.

 

So first my comments: I think this is an absurd step taken by WOWS, since one hardly ever see DD's exploding after one hit. As a matter of fact I see CA's exploding far more often after one hit and they are not getting the same "protection" (thankfully)

So basically you will see  more players leaving the game, because they will no longer want to invest time and money in this type of game. 

 

One thing which could be done to at least give some consolation to BB players is to introduce flooding in DD's. If you overpen yuo puncture a hole in the hull, so water will come in. That is reality and I would want that to be implemented as a countermeasure to avoid total torpedo soup in the future

I trust you have heard of something called "HE", according to WG this is the correct shell to use in order to defend against DD's, so therefore this change is reasonable and long in the making. With a little known commander skill called "Expert Loader" it is possible to switch shells in 15 seconds or less. Of course assuming that you haven't just blithely blundered into a torpedo ambush, in which case no kind of shell is going to save you anyway. :Smile_Default:

 

Of course, the Expert loader skill could be buffed a bit more to make it more viable...:Smile_great:

  • Playerbase will not go down because of this
  • There are enough options to defend vs DD, most important one: do not sail alone!
  • Realism is bad for balancing: Cruiser and BB get hit more often and would suffer more

 

And I suggest to continue here:

No need to write stuff multiple times.

 

  • Cool 1

i HAVE THE LOADER; BUT TO GIVE A BIT EXTRA DEFENSE IN A BATTLE MY SUGGESTION WOULD BE FAIR
