Why do ships go into battle unloaded.

Any captain doing this wants cashiering.

Why does wow do it.

I guess you mean the guns.

And no, guns do not get loaded before battle, since the captain does not know which targets he has to engage.

 

And the fact that you cannot shoot certain guns in the first 30something seconds should not really be a problem....

Do you mean that Guns and torpedotubes should be fully loaded at the start of the battle instead of beginning to reaload when battle starts?

There is a good reason for that in case of the torpedos ("unintentional" teamdamage and griefing) and for guns it doesn't matter as they will be loaded before you can shoot any enemys (also mostly true for the torpedos).

 

Otherwise you have to clarify what you meant as your post doesn't make sense then.

...following up his suggestion, is there any way it could make sense anyway?! ah, if there' wasn't teamdamage.

 

also op, it's a figure in regard to early capping engagements. thus, torp reload is relevant from matchstart on. all fine there in my book...

 

 

 

edit:

...must resist... AAAAAH...

well, they're not loaded coz one just croessed the border into the next match and the guns still reload from the last one :Smile_trollface::Smile_hiding:

Oh yeah, we had that once.

10/10 was a great time with all the teamkilling in spawn because someone accidentally fired their torps.

Imagine being loaded "loaded" in a Yamato...  Somebody who has a slower internet/PC might end up dead already.

Cause sure as hell I'd fire the guns at the location where the (stationary, probably not yet loaded) reds are....

I can understand the main battery not being loaded at start. Having to wait while the torpedo tubes load is bogus though...

Because if you carry a loaded gun, you might accidentally shoot off your pecker.

You'r all wrong, you know why the guns arent loaded at the start?

-empty guns are less heavy right, less weight means better acceleration off the start when you press W at match start.

Some maps can turn very trappy (idk if the word is correct) if you start with loaded torps :)

I've always assumed it was so careless destroyers couldn't "accidentally" fire their torpedoes at friendlies for at least the first minute or so.

I know this is supposed to be a joke. But what tf is that logic even if the ammunition, therefore weight is still on the ship?

When you consider the number of ships with 6km torps that launch them ASAP into channels the enemy is still 9km away from it's hardly a waste.

 

Always love watching a konigsberg or some such throw a load of torps at a BB that 13km away.... kills me every time. Best part is the sweeping turn and flash broadside on the IJN cruisers as they lob a load of torps at targets a 15km away and get detonated during the broadside gape.

I have one good reason for having loaded torps:

Slow torp loading DDs can have their torptubes inpacitated before they are reloaded (by a CV f.e.), so they start to reload from scratch.

 

I think thats retarded anyway, and we shouldnt have fully loaded torptubes at the start of the game precisely because fucktards would abuse it for TKing. But some change might be in order for that. Imo repairing a turret/Torptube shouldnt result in reloading from scratch.

Yeah that mechanic is super annoying. DM vs DM duel at close range when both load AP and knocks each other turret repeatedly is pretty silly to watch. They always have to reload from scratch.
