Tirpitz players and obsession with torps

Almost every Tirpitz player is behaving like this: He goes very, very close to enemy team almost at the beginning of the game, shows big juicy broadside JUST TO LAUNCH TORPS OF 6 KM RANGE. Then he dies almost instantly, get citaled, a hundred fires etc. Should I even mention that released torps score zero hits. I really don't understand why Tirpitz players are so obsessed with torps. Your primary weapons are 8 main battery guns. Don't be burden to your team, it's really sad to watch such stupid behavior.

There is the reason why Tirpitz is alternate name is “derptiz”, cause it’s one of the first high tier premium boats to show up in the game, available to all with a credit card

There’s a Yuro video where he takes his Tirpitz into smoke and torps both DDs in there. Maybe they all watched that.

I find that typically the Tirpitz is easy to destroy in my Bismarck, despite the Tirpitz theoretically having the advantage. You can usually really tell people have bought the ship but lack the experience to play it well.

The highest damage game I have currently had (179k), was in my Amagi. Towards the end of the game, I ended up at the far eastern part of the map against a Tirpitz.

 

He had noticeably more health than me so I turned away, reducing to half speed. He followed, but at no point fired his main guns at me. I on the other hand continued to shoot at him, chipping away at his health.  Clearly he was watching his torpedo tracking and nothing else. 

 

He got half way along side me at a very close range, fired his torps and missed. Unfortunately for him, I didnt miss giving him a full broadside.

 

Those torps can be very handy. But at the end of the day the Tirpitz is a battleship. Some players forget that.

I'm surprised Tirpitz still attracts so many poor players. 

I am surprised anyone would pick it over the Massachusetts.

 

I might take mine out soon but I'm far to scared of CVs in it.

the same reason most people when they think "tank", they imagine 'Tiger". Famous German battleship, "the beast" with service record of firing upon weather station:Smile_smile:

Problem lies with the players thinking that their close proximity torp launches will guarantee a kill.  Which isn't, at all.  If anything Tirpitz players should utilise their torps for defensive weapon instead of an offensive weapon.  Due to the lack of range.  They underestimate the power of her guns versus Tier 9 battleships.

Locked due to being unconstructive.
