Hi all,

 

Just curious... :Smile_hiding:

 

How many of you are aware that planes no longer spot torpedoes in WoWs v0.8.x?

 

"To improve the balance between aircraft and destroyers, squadrons have lost the ability to spot torpedoes. This change will also affect the Fighter and Spotting Aircraft consumables."

P.S.

Please be honest - the Poll is anonymous... :Smile_bajan2:

I dont see how that balances the issue. 

The issue was the spotting range at when a DD could be spotted. 

No one to my knowledge had any issues about torpedoes.

I was aware but at some points - that didnt help me :Smile-_tongue:. Its so established into your routine, that when I see a CV spotting a DD, f.e., I expect atleast to see some of the torps, so that I know that there is coming something. So when I dont see them, I still think the DD hasnt torped. You have to constantly remind yourself "thats not how it works anymore", which... doesnt work all the time.

If you didn't know that planes don't spot torps anymore then You are part of the problem and why WG are decreasing the skill level.

I asked because that info was "buried" and, possibly, some players missed it (even those who frequent Forum and Reddit)... I really don't want to think about the myriad of players who "just play" without reading Patch Notes, News, Forum, Reddit... :Smile_hiding:

As DD main that always reads through the full patchnotes and most other changes discussed elsewhere I am fully aware of this fact. The problem is to remind oneself constantly in battle to overwrite the habit not to launch torps when planespotted or thinking the enemy DD hasn't torped yet because the Planes would've spotted those.

Well real number i guess is like ''no '' 70% but thats players are not on forum, just a few of them. On the other hand i guess a lot of this guys not even know that planes before rework can spot torps.

Currently it's 20% and that's the people that think that reading is overrated. Guess are the same that complain of server being down on patch day.

There's people sitting on smoke that still call cheaters to people that spot them for one of the next reasons:

  • Radar
  • Hydro
  • Smoke firing gun bloom
  • Proximity spotting with adquisition (3km instead of 2 km)

So I won't be surprised that a great amount of players didn't know about torps being spotted by planes.

Wow you are an optimistic one.

Renember we are talking about the same crowd which still consistently brings forth players that don't know yet that the service costs isn't tied to damage taken anymore even though that got changed over a year ago.

It's totally more like 90 - 95% and some of them didn't know torps get spotted by planes in the first place like mentioned in the post above.

It totally is! I am still somewhat annoyed that WG is "hiding" content in news articles. Looking at you "Press here to participate" buttons... :Smile_trollface:

True that, if people don't/can't read than no matter how they narrow the skill gap it won't solve anything, sadly WG will listen to those people and eventually even completey brain dead vegetables will be able to play the game.

Shush...

Don't tell the others about a changed game mechanism that I am abusing a little bit right now. :Smile_trollface:

 

It's fun to see BBs and Cruisers still launching their planes in hopes to spot my torps, or feeling safe because I have just been attacked by a CV and that would surely have revealed my fishes. Ships that don't change course are simply delicious prey.

I was aware that aircraft would not spot torpedo's anymore or get XP/credit from that.

 

I am aware however fighter consumable can be hung over enemy DD and spot it untill they are destroyed or run out of time. Figher consumable spot ships too !

 

So no need to remain there circkeling yourself if you fly bombers toward  BB or CA/CL's and stumble on some DD......just pass over DD, drop consumable, and let your allied team ships  take care of the spotted DD while you torp/bomb BB and CA/CL.

As a matter of fact I had no idea about that. And I DO read the patch notes and all that stuff. (hell, I had no idea the focus fire sector even existed in the beta test. You don't get that option shown anywere and I only found out due comentaries on the forum)

Suits me - I do seem to be getting more torp hits lately, but I put that down to confirmation bias...

 

The thought does occur that quite a few people probably didn't know that planes spotted torps before the change though.

So that is about 100 people that read the forum that have answered. How about the thousands of other randoms that don't keep up to date with everything? They probably still thinks CV's will spot their torps. As they still think saving the ship will save them repair costs :Smile_veryhappy:

You're assuming those people even knew that aircraft can spot torps in the first place. A bold proposition.

You're going to get a very strongly skewed result towards yes here, the vast majority of players know nothing outside of what the game directly and repeatedly tells them
