In any case whenever you torp a friendly it is 100% your fault.


I'm going to add a caveat of 0.5% forgivable scenarios induced by abject idiocy. The things you see on spectator cam...

Fuso, angled effectively against one enemy BB, but with another who has his broadside at close range. Farragut comes in to save his ass.

Farragut: "Fuso STAY STRAIGHT!! Torping"

Fuso: "Affirmative!"

Farragut fires torps.

Fuso IMMEDIATELY goes full opposite rudder and eats a broadside from the ship he had actually been angled against, Farragut's torps finish him off.

Supercontainers (and flag containers) have been nerfed to shit and saddled with useless upgrades.

Got the NC finally, woo.

Got the Kotari from the Ides of March event. It's guns are like lasers. Unfortunately, there are only two of them and the ship is slow as suck. Interesting ship though.

I unsubbed from Eurobeat. The constant Nazi imagery and calling anyone who annoys him a [gay slur] rubbed me the wrong way.

So they are going to nerf stealth fire. And by nerf I mean "remove it from the game".

I am a bit torn on this.

On the one hand, this is yet another buff to BBs.

On the other hand, when I can do things like this with relative ease, then something is clearly wrong.

But I am unsure if stealth fire should be removed entirely or if they should have just nerfed it a bit. Because there are some ships (Akizuki, Zao, Yugumo) that utterly depend on it. If they just remove it without buffing them then RIP those ships.

Well I play really infrequently due to college, also I have one T7 and everything else is below that, so you'd probably miss me if you're playing the higher tiers.
