Another reminder that CV on DD interaction is still not fixed. 

 

No I can't be bothered to post in the "official" threat, since it has 5000 pages since 1976 and nothing has changed. Change the spotting now!

Not a problem below T8 seems to be a big problem at top tier but game isn't just about top tier , DDs might want to give up something in exchange for no spotting as when you lose all your friendly DDs their pretty much invisible the rest of the game.

 

While i do agree a CV should not be able to spot a DD i also feel that a DD should not get aim assist.

There is an interaction?:fish_boom:

 

Yes, DDs send some eels out and those BB players that deserve the title "BaBBy" go full Pokemon Trainer, thinking "I got to catch them all".

Better BB captains use WASD hack to "dodge them all" or die trying... :cap_cool:

Disclaimer: DDs played 33%, Cruisers 37%, BBs 26%, can contain traces of CVs (4%)

 

Just to dodge those "DD main..." accusations :cap_haloween:

Simply by pressing 3 to delete said BB of all its HPs or you can press 3 to make said BB give broadside to your teammates the choice is yours.

If it would so, that DDs regularly basis score torpedo hits on BBs, they should be leading the damage stats, rights? Hilarious they aren't, but instead do in average worse damage than cruisers or battleships.

I consider myself as a good (not top, or unicorn) DD player. Though, my torpedo hit rate is lower than 7 %.

 

If you are hit often by torps from DDs, you doing something wrong or playing Tier 4 to Tier 6, exclusively, where DD can yolo-torp BBs.

 

If I playing BBs, ironically I have more problems by being attacked by torpedo-focused high tier CVs than of DDs.

Hilarious.

 

Do you have any idea how many aid the artillery gets?

If you take away all the hidden helpers, no one would ever land a hit past 10 km.

Or do you honestly believe that the BB-snipers* would be able to compensate even for the rolling of their own ship and time their shot at the right moment?

There is a reason why BBs usually fired their salvoes once every 2-3 minutes (late in WWII once a minute) despite people claiming 

"but but but it reloaded in 30 secs, FACT!!!!!"

 

*Oh and starting from ca 30km on you have to count in the earth´s rotation in your aim or you would never hit the target (bc of flight time). Would love to see how players which can´t even go by e.g. NNW (navigate by compass - hello, naval game) would calculate that.

Probably meant to say that BB have to calculate the shot, while a DD gets the 'grey/green' indicator showing lead/direction to a target ship.

Cv's dumping on dd's is bad, however it is a necessary evil. Now before you all throw a tantrum and spam angry face allow me to explain.

 

DD is probably the most important class of ship in the game. It is also the hardest ship in the game to play and even harder to master. When you look at everything the community expects a dd player to do in a match it is just overwhelming. What they bring to the battlefield however is equally as powerful. A well played dd can make the difference more often then a well played BB or CA. They can secure victory, keep the enemy spotted, and take a full health ship to 0 in one strike. In the absence of a cv in game the only real threats to a dd is another dd and a consumable that has a cool down an a limited supply that can easily be played around. Now we all know there is very little reward and some extreme risk for a dd to actively spot and or hunt other dds as doing so opens them up to counter fire from cruisers. 

 

So yeah a cv is nasty against a dd, however since the only other option tends to avoid the engagement it is kind of needed.

It is helpful, especially on the EU dds, but those guide lines are easy to throw off by simple throttle jockeying and turning inwards.

I find it does not work properly, though. I aim where the assist says I should and then I miss because the BB changes course. Is there a counter hack? :cap_haloween:

torping from as close as the DDs detection allows to ensure the torps hit or arrive at the tightest possible spread. They are much harder to evade this way even if the BB changes course.

At least I can bother to lock yet another CV thread. 

Please use the sticky one.
