Carnal is crap

Short range torps, high detection radius,... the need to brawl with her in close combat against a sh*triver of enemies' torps makes it useless.

I haven't figured her out yet as well... 

Compared to the Messer: torpedoes are slower, shorter range, less damage, longer reload times.... Carnal has also worse concealment.

 

The Seascythe rips anything apart though :3

Mate, the Carnal is amazeballs. The Lancel is even better as a straight up upgrade. The Rumble though is thoroughly underwhelming compared to its predecessor. Have 2x5 centerline torps is MUCH better gameplay wise than having wingmounted launchers with much less torpedo weight.

It seems that people don't know how to play the Carnal.

Or to put it another way - they don't have Carnal Kowledge.:Smile_hiding:

 

(I myself only use Carnal kowledge these days when describing new half-baked Wargaming developments)

And how do you plan to launch these amazing torpedos of 4km range to a target parallel or incoming, which already launched you 2 salvos from farther?

Easy, by getting right up into their faces. The Carnal and Lancel can literally stop dead in their tracks and accelerate to full speed when you want it. Playing with your speed you can dodge torpedoes firing 2km away from you.

Carnal has an amazing turning radius and of the new Tier 1 ships, she is very good, in fact she is the only one that I have actually managed to get any kills with so far as she can turn inside the enemy torpedo arcs if you get it right, not sure about the tier 2 and tier 3 ships here as done all three containers today and not progressed to next tier yet but this will give me a shed load of elite XP to upgrade mainline captains to level 19

Different play style than the other 2, requires much more WASD-ing.

I think that's why people (Kevins) struggle with her. She's a hack ship but it's massive fun

Ignore A & D, W & S is all you need in that thing. You can bait their torps so hard and then just zoom straight into their faces, dump yours at 1km before his torps are reloaded. Killarious!

Just keep the Carnal and her branch ships 4km away, and they are dead.

You do that in an ever shrinking map with islands/skycrapers everywhere that are limiting your ability to navigate as you wish and can be used for ambushes. It's pretty damn easy to force a brawl in this mode and the Carnal and her superiours are surpremely effective at baiting and dodging torpedoes if you just toy around with your speed. Those two or so torpedo salvoes from further away are useless against you if they never hit.

 

I can imagine you're not familiar with using the manouverability of a ship as its primary offensive and defensive tool, but it's a long shot from being a "crap" ship just because you can't make it work.
