  1. Not sure about your island height example... but if the island blocks line of sight then it is a yes/no and unless a consumable is used, both ships will detect each other when they are 2 km apart regardless of ship type or normal detection distance. Vigilance can also change that value, but 2 km is the default and what most people will experience.
  2. Zoom While Free Looking 1.3

    Must be a setting or something, I can zoom with torps using shift just like with guns. Not as useful cuz of the camera angle though :/
  3. I have to wonder if anyone thought this through if that was the intent. I am happy you guys are doing things to try to incentivize people to come back to play. But this seems to have been very poorly implemented/executed. There are people who haven’t played in awhile logging in and getting nothing, but people who login regularly but don’t PVP are getting this... Beyond that, it’s the content of the package that irks me. 150k free XP and 2 tier 5/6 premiums? So all the people you bring back can jump straight into tier 5/6/7 even though they haven’t played in months and use ships they haven’t used before so we can further dilute the playing experience? Great, yet another way you can screw those of us playing regularly! Look, I won’t quit over this. I still love the game, but I had to grind hard (or spend money) to get the 150k FXP I had on my account. A FXP sale is something we all need/want, and have been asking for. But even though we were willing to spend money and just wanted to get more bang for our buck, you instead give away a pile of FXP to random players just for not playing (or at least that’s the theory, again not sure about the execution...) Now I’m not even sure I’ll spend money because this whole thing rubbed me the wrong way.
  4. No.... triangle with an exclamation is the new indicator for radar/hydro... not listed in any patch notes
  5. It’s not that WG gave stuff away to get people back, it’s that they gave ALOT away. And not just random stuff, but good stuff active players want/need. Maybe this all blows over, but a PR storm is brewing and I am having Murmansk/Alabama flashbacks and have a feeling WG may have again underestimated what the community reaction would be to this...
  6. I earned all of my OR red containers in CO-OP... that said, I hear what you’re saying, but that’s not going to make it go over better and the longer it takes WG to make an official announcement the worse the shitstorm will get...
  7. Don't play = get rewarded

    Except people are getting them even if they’ve been logging in? And that is a big load of swag...
  8. People have already posted that they got the full kit of swag, even though they logged in last night. Tell me what would the difference be between them logging in and me logging in other than they played PVE and I played PVP? Like I said, radar better get his email out quick and it better be good. Even if the letter is good if it doesn’t get out today it will be too late for a lot of people
  9. That’s all well and good. And if it was just a ship I would shrug and move on. But that is a load of goodies just because someone wasn’t playing PvP...
  10. Agree. If this is how WG treats their non-paying (or not playing) customers, but they expect the paying customers to keep paying then [edited] em... I’ll go F2P and get my free crap too. 150k free XP?! Radar better get his email out soon and it better have a dam good reason for this mess or no money from me until my freebies show up...
  11. What consumables or camo do you run? Even with a non-prem account you shouldn’t be consistently losing money (although your margins will be much thinner so you may have to drop down in tier more often to make up the difference if you have a string of bad luck).
  12. Not sure what you’re trying to say here... I said I run premium consumables and camo, but still make money. Avoid radar cruisers until they burn their radar, then go in for the cap. Don’t get caught in a knife fight for a cap unless you’re sure you won’t have to make a 5 km dash out of your smoke for safety. Yes radar changed the gameplay for DDs, but they aren’t broken. Radar at high tiers just forces you to play more passive and patient than lower tiers
  13. Are you using a premium account? I run premium consumables and camo on my Fletcher, and with a premium account I only lose money if I have a bad game. Last night had a game I earned close to 700k on a loss. Admittedly that was a great game but you shouldn’t be consistently losing money in a fletcher, especially if you are winning.
  14. You have to do the last part in one battle, and you have to win the battle. No way to make progress, it’s all or nothing
  15. U.S. Cruiser line split.

    Anyone have a guess as to what happens to the anniversary camo on the NO when this split happens? I assume the camo would be transferred to the new t8 baltimore and the t7 NO would have nothing since it is a "special" camo?
