I thought I understood this stuff but now I'm starting to wonder...
1. If I'm in a ship, being spotted by a red destroyer I cannot see, out of range of everything/everyone else, even my hydro does not pick him up - why do I not receive a warning that I am spotted? Because he's not using his main guns. I would like ANY FORM of targeting your ship to indicate you are being targeted. It is very bizarre to not receive any indication of being spotted yet receive hits.
2. Secondaries and smoke - it would appear secondaries can remain locked on a target in/behind smoke. How is it - if true and not just my imagination - secondary gunners can continue to fire on target but I cant do the same with my main batteries? If this is correct, does it not require fixing?
3. Can we PLEASE get the option to turn off the automatic selection of a target with our main guns? Please? Why? Everyone and their brother - probably sister too - are likely to be running the level one skill Priority Target. Just look in someones direction, your guns lock on target, enemy ship is now aware you are looking at them. I deselect using "X" but if there are any other ships in the area, the guns will target them. You see the problem, right? When the target is alone I find if I deselect as soon as they get locked, they think I'm not looking at them anymore. When I'm ready to fire a quick X to select them and a firing can often catch them unawares. So please can we get full manual target selection on our main guns?
Yes I know I always ask for things... I like change. tia fyc
