World of Warships. Destroyers: General tips and tricks on game strategy.
Destroyers are combat, fast and maneuverable warships. Functional navigation options are supported by the using of light armor, and the shock force is supported by torpedo weapons. During the battle, these combat ships can use such effective technique as smoke screens, which help to hide allied ships and conceal their own attack. After choosing a warship you can maneuver and operate as a single hunter or as a part of the whole squadron interacting with other warships. The destroyer will quickly defeat any enemy in case of sudden assault from ambush.
National peculiarities are taken into account in this game: the ships differ from each other radically. For example, the Japanese prefer more advanced torpedoes and lower detectability, while Americans are choosing powerful quick-firing artillery guns, all these features are taken into account in the game.
Torpedoes are a very powerful weapon. As a rule, only one good attack of weapon allows you to liquidate absolutely any kind of combat ship. Sometimes to destroy a heavier warship or aircraft carrier requires more attacks.
Unique driving options allow warships to make critical and decisive blows unexpectedly, to be located outside the enemy’s aimed fire.
This kind of fighting technique always helps destroyers to conceal from enemy intelligence the group of ships or any part on the map. Smoke screens allow to attack the enemy ships unexpectedly and to ensure reliable cover during your retreat.
The power of destroyers lies in their speed, high mobility and courage in attack. The strength of ships is in melee combat. Driving such high-speed warship, you have a real opportunity to come close to the enemy’s location with minimal risk, produce a set of torpedoes and after that freely escape to continue searching a new victim. The most effective weapon – torpedoes. Only one successful attack will be enough to sink even such opponent as a battleship. But this process does not tolerate haste. At the beginning make only one shot and wait for the result because the enemy’s change of course not excluded. Make the second attack taking the enemy’s strategy into account, try to reduce his chances to escape.
Use the possibilities of landscape.
Your privileges over clumsy heavy warships are islands and narrow channels. Try to assault from a shelter, and your attack will be inevitable. Choose the adversary wisely. The warship is good with carriers and battleships, but meeting with cruisers may be the last for it. Remember about this always. Using of smoke screens is effectively in ambush and retreat. This fighting technique helps you in your attack on the enemy but you don’t forget about its harmful effect. Remember: you may use the enemy smoke screens as a temporary shelter, at the same time your ones can be a sudden hindrance for your ally. To select the driving direction timely you have to use such function as "The Intercept" which is in the skill tree of warship’s commander. It will be able to get a signal at the moment when the adversary detects your location.
Use binoculars rarely, because in the mode of artillery fire it is easy to miss the best moment to attack. Remember, your "allies" are destroyer’s mobility and torpedo attacks. GL HF while power leveling your ship!
