I thought this happened to me before, but I brushed it off as complete nonsense. But now I know. I just got torpedoed by an ISLAND. I SAW it with my own eyes........... And no, there wasn't a plane anywhere near me. OR a sneaky DD. I saw the torps come out of the island. Has anyone else had this happen? I don't know whether to curse profusely or laugh. Actually, I laughed while I was cursing profusely. I want an Island- maybe a tier 6 or 8. Maybe even a 5.

De-synch. Weird stuff happens.


 

I once had my ship stop and I could still see the battle. After my ship died, it took off and ran away from my position. It's still sailing out there today... a ghost ship. :ohmy:

Let me guess.  You don't have replays enabled?

Lol. No one ever does when the weirdness happens. Like that time I saw a Yeti but had no camera handy.

​Cool! Maybe it can't be sunk. Shells and torps just go right through it! And Blackbeard moons everyone from the mizzen mast.......

No. How do you do that?

 

Educated guess on his part, based on many previous instances of people seeing weird things (e.g. detonations with flag, carriers dropping torpedoes onto an island and killing someone, etc.)

​So, such occurrences are actually kinda normal? I'm NOT insane? Yet?

Its normal for people to not have replayes enabled when that weird stuff happens. No replay = no proof.

​And naturally, once I figure out how and enable replay, it will never happen again. And for the record, I could care less about proving it, I already KNOW what I saw. What I'm interested in is- has this happened to anyone else?

Finally WG is doing something to stop battleships from island camping.

Once, I encountered a ghost island and was almost torpedoed through it. I didn't have replays on, but I did screen cap it.
 

 My reticle is hovering over the apparition in question.

He was asking how to enable replays....

 

For the OP - a link to the instructions is here...  http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/topic/123282-problem-enabling-replays/

I have had times that torps ran out before they got to me but if I turn and look to the other side of the ship I can see the trails of the torps past my ship.  Maybe the same type of thing happening...

Clearly you were in a game with a tester trying out the new Submarine.  I heard they are not including them on the player list as well to add to the realism of not knowing they are even there.

I have had torps continue on through islands and beyond the map border before. It was weird to watch after I was sunk
