As the title states. Given the recent additions such as Odin and Pommern proving that torpedoes and hydro are not mutually exclusive, why not give the GK torpedeos to make it the ultimate brawler?

Would it really need it to keep it balanced?

It would be an error of judgement to put torpedoes on GK IMHO

Can I also request smoke too, please? I have a cunning plan that will turn every ship into the game into - essentially - a destroyer; only the scale and levels of manliness will vary.

 

C'mon - you know it makes sense!

Then we might aswell give it fuelsmoke, so it can surprise others from behind an island, smoke up and let the secondaries do their thing, while rushing them fullspeed :Smile_trollface:

Because it would be too much. GK is a beast already.

When the German battleships came into play in 2016, I would have liked to have torpedoes on the ships as a special feature. I would even have done without the hydro and the "good" secondary guns. In the meantime I am of the opinion that this is not necessary. Especially since torpedoes are reserved for premium battleships anyway. In the long range battles that usually take place, torpedoes can hardly be used sensibly on the German BBs anyway...

I'd suggest giving the BBs the ability to submerge so they can hide from incoming fire without having to hide behind a big island.

 

(I am joking by the way.)

For a set of torps? In a heartbeat, not like you will hit much beyond point blank range with that dispersion anyhow...

To briefly ignore the people posting stupid exaggerations to a simple suggestion I don't think it would be too bad of an idea, the GK's averages aren't stellar in any category (with the obvious caveat that German ships often show low due to attracting the worst players) and torpedoes were on most of the German design projects. The prolific 6km torps from many German BBs wouldn't be game breaking.

 

 

Oh wait, hang on, clealry I need to post pointless replies like others have as well.

The only thing I want with GK is better firing angles on the back turrets.

This is something that i can and will support.
