Problems calling in targets

So for some reason, my F3 key only works sporadically to call in targeted vessels. All my other F keys work reliably every time (and the F3 key works fine used in other applications besides WoWs). Is there some restriction to when you can use it?

It tends to require more precise targeting since several patches ago. Not a big issue.

What do you mean "more precise"? I have the ship targeted with my guns (not secondaries just the mains)  - is that not enough? Do I need to manually target it with secondaries?

It's a bit funny sometimes. Pointing your general direction to it will work, but sometimes you have to zoom in for it to work.

You have to have your cursor moused over the target.  Not necessarily selected, but moused over at the moment you press F3.

You need to have the crosshairs pointed at the actual ship and for it to be in gun range to call F3 - this is more difficult when it is behind an island and hard to see. Seems that pointing at their name usually works too. 

 

Note: if your ship has Torps, you can still light them up at any range by selecting the torp option.

You need the curser on it because it is able to be used on cap points and allies.
