On Estuary, at G9 there is a tiny island. It's now named Evil Island. I got stuck against it's north end. It was IMPOSSIBLE to unstuck myself. A teammate in Yorck had to ram my sorry [edited]unstuck, so I ate 2 torps for him in the process.

He then got briefly stuck on the same cursed rock, but was too big to get fully wedged between whatever is lurking in the water there. I was in Ognevoi, and was fully, completely stuck. For, like, 3 minutes!

 

That seems like a minor glitch in that map. Can it be fixed, or is that part of that map's charm?

ALSO: can someone explain how that's an estuary? Thanks.

The Kraken lurks?

Happens here and there on several different maps.

Just don’t do what I did once; going through a turn and managed to parallel park perfectly between two spurs of rock in a destroyer. Well and truely stuck until the game was over.

lol, I basically did that. It was kind of impressive.

I got caught up on a rock in Tashkent a while back and it took me more than 2 minutes to unstuck myself. It's actually a bit comical.

Also, I like using "unstuck" as a verb.

UPDATE

I gained 1 karma point for getting stuck like an idiot.

Actually, the present tense of unstuck is unstick

Because Papa Smurf always sez... *BONK*:etc_red_button:

Man I just need to start keeping a log on how often and where I do this. It's happened so often I'm no longer embarrassed by my idiocy for doing it. Im trying to think of a map I haven't done it on yet and drawing a blank.

It happens to me most frequently in Russian DDs, especially with speed boost activated. Really skews your hard lefts around islands and you get in there more than hard enough to stick in guuuud.

I just need to remind myself more often that the island has right of way.

I’ve gotten my poor Eugen stuck on a rock. I know she’s thicc but come on Wargaming. 

Serious note: There are parts of islands that seem to grab ships and not let go. The best thing to do is avoid them all together. Grant it sometimes that can’t be done, but that’s how the game goes.

I read in one thread that if you go full ahead and turn it will very slowly pivot you away enough to get an angle to start moving some.  That is, if you survive long enough.

That thread was incorrect.

Well, I gueass at least it will make me feel like I am doing something, LOL.  Once, I got stuck on the back of an island while in the midst of the perfect ambush.  Had to watch helplessly while my team got shot up and then while someone made their way over and torped me.  Very frustrating, to say the least.

I know, but I prefer unstuck. I'm making it a thing.
