Quite a few ships have more than one torpedo launcher. So they'd be perfectly capable of firing off two sets of four torpedoes.

Any idea what ship the enemy was playing? What ship were you playing? There are multiple game mechanics that could explain that behaviour.

Small advice: Before you come to the forum and call "Cheat", please inform yourself.

Yes, you are new, but some common sense is expected.

28,57 % WR? Who would have to resort to cheats fighting against you? :Smile_amazed:

Your "cheater" might have launched 4 torps per side, which is kind of normal on your tier (3), or have center mounted launchers. 8 launchers are not rare. Derzki has 10 tubes, you will kind of cry abuse when you first meet an Okhotnik.

The Torpedo Reload Booster has a 5-second activation time, so 2 seconds is too fast for TRB to work.

Didn't call cheat. Asked if it was cheat. There's a difference. Please inform yourself of it.

 

There's nothing wrong with asking a question. That's one great way to inform yourself.

You know, it's possible to respond to a newbie without stat shaming.

 

Also, with that few battles, winrate means very little.

Are there any TRB at T3/T4? Not to my knowledge.

T7 has always been the lowest, I think. Shiratsuyu-class ships have it. Even when they tested the 30-second TRB out with the T7 Hatsuharu and the T9 Kagero. The gun version the French ships have is a tier or two lower, though.

It has nothing to do with being new. If someone suspects cheating, the first thing I do is checking how competent that person is, and if his suspicion is more likely to be related to his limited competence than to being a victim of cheating.

If your first reaction is being an arse about it, I don't think people should listen to anything you say. That just means your primary intention is to insult, and not to inform.

So check it, then don't mention it.

The answer to that question in 99.99% of cases is "not".

Feel free to guess my presumed intention; roughly 90% of all people attempting that do guess wrong.

There's a difference between asking someone specific and asking in general. :Smile-_tongue:

Well, if you start with an insult, then whatever your intention is, the outcome and what people see is 90% correct.

Fair enough. One of my most memorable moments with the T7 Hatsuharu TRB was a Khaba complaining about how someone could reload in 20 seconds. I just corrected him with "30 s" and put on a:Smile_trollface:. Then he whined about what kind of idiot would ever use that consumable, and I said, "the kind of idiot that sank you". Cue more :Smile_trollface: from the rest of my team.

Good point. Rare premium ship with consumables a tier lower than the standard ships.

Can't find TRB below Tier 7 IJN Gunboat line.... Shiratsuyu..

 

Torpedo boat side Kagero can use TRB at the cost of smoke...

 

I suspect that the OP has merely witnessed a player firing a salvo then firing another from a different position...

 

The OP is new, he may not understand that a DD doesn't have to fire their torpedoes in one go...

 

I also don't have a problem with the OP asking a question... we were all new to the game once and some players don't have the benefit of friends who play.

I think we're all better for the help of others so don't be too harsh with a new player; we are better than that aren't we?

Guys, he has 109 battles. I would think that T4 is the top. So he is new and would like to learn.

 

Sure he did not choose his words wisely but let's be welcoming.

 

(I know, said by me... I am trying to change for the better, okay?)

Alright folks, tone down your personal discussions about whom to listen to and whom not. We have apparently a rather new player here, so don't fall off into trolling.
