So i was in a CV T8 and Shimmakaze who was 21KM away launched torps, i was completely undetected and had not been detected the entire game and moving away. yet they still hit me and got a devastating strike from 21KM. how is that even possible.. the fact that T8 CV even gets paired with T10 ships is BS to begin with because the planes cannot survive T10 AA, especially when its the weak CV's.

How do you know he launched them from 21km?

 

Hint: Even CV can move.

 

And if a Shima is not an easy target for you, maybe you should not play Tier VIII CV...

This just goes to prove the benefits of occasionally using your engines and moving around the map a little bit. If you hadn't just sat on the same spot all game you would have quite easily avoided those torps. :Smile_smile:

I have gone back to 20km Shima torps a few times with great success... The 20km's love the Campers and Radar Bunnies if you fire right and taking down a CV who thinks he is safe tight behind the Island is pure magic.

What I would like to know is how he knew Shima was 21km away when it has concealment of 5.6km.

 

Also, no such thing as 'weak' CV.

I guess he spotted him or it was spotted ... its not as if DDs are always 100% hidden at all times.

That also means its not spotted at 100% of the time and likely the Shima moved into 19km, launched and turned back and then got detected when it was over 20km away.

Yeah, I know lol but it just made me laugh. Those 20km torps are SLOW, he could have been on the way back after launching them from 10km away, spotted CV who was oblivious to being spotted because, CV player, and was getting back into the proper gameplay ( CVs don't count).

I wanted to say "I hope he detonated, too" but then I remembered that they cannot be detonated anymore for "reasons"

Let me guess he launched his Torps from under 20km away from you and then turn away.

By the Time he was spottet he was 21km away from you and as a Result of this you thought you were save.

20km torps are the slowest torps that a Shima can launch. So i guess they had been launched more then a Minute before they got to you.

Well, if the Shimakaze shot it 20 km torpedos, the torpedos will travel this 20 km. This takes a lot of time.

In this time it is possible, to drive into this 20 km range.

=> Because of that, it is possible to hit targets which are at time of torpedo launch out of torpedo range.

I have hit four campers with a full 15 Torpedo Salvo at one time... I didn't sink any of them but they didn't stay camping after that (One of my highest dmg tallies though at near 200,000) ...

 

In fact I kept spamming them every reload whilst spotting them and they could do nothing about it... They were all sunk by my team. When you have to watch your backside you can hardly push forwards effectively.

 

My other Shima Captain (also a lvl19) I have set to run 16km @ 70knots if I fancy long range and if I fancy a close game the same captain can use 6.4km @ 85 knots...

No offense intended but that doesn't sound like great achievement and more like they were absolutely useless.

The 20km torps have a 2.7km torpedo detect, which is ~50% worse than the next worse torpedo.

Also behind an enemy is the worst possible bearing to torpedo them from if I can interpolate that from your message.

Assuming those 4 didn't have either active DD or CV support or more than 1 radar at their disposal you'd most likely have fared better with the 12km set in that situation.

This is what I like about WOWS: the caring and supportive community - always here for the sad and unfortunate. It's really rather touching...

Too many people been on the receiving end of perma spot by planes and not been able to hit back to have sympathy for CV players.

I suck at cv play but even I can get through to strike at enemy ships without getting decimated by a higher tier ship.

The only thing I can think of right now is how all the other ships feel when they are uptiered and face a top tier CV.

 

So sorry, but not sorry for not feeling sorry for you.
