Radar is a garbage game mechanic

We have tons of ships without radar that should have it. Yet they do not. 

Then we have ships with radar selectively which is kinda silly. 

RADAR does not work trough rocks or islands. Why this has not been fixed is beyond all logic. You cannot see around smoke why cant the same mechanic be used so RADAR cannot be seen around islands? 

Very much sick of this massive advantage over all ships.

Oh poor baby. Smoke sucks too tho hey?

In fact they are trying to make the game interesting with various benefits and liabilities. You need to step back to understand that I suppose.

Full marks to the devs in threading the needle between an arcade naval game and one that is reality-derived.

Whiners can go get sunk until they get it.

Actually you can see through smoke and around rocks with hydro or the autospot distance.

Seeing through land masses is an unfortunate side effect of implementing the radar mechanic to the game, not an intention.  I'm not going to explain it in detail again in the 47th thread created discussing it, though.

Besides, instead of complaining about radar, how about playing ships that have it and discover this supposed "massive" advantage for yourself.

Well proximity spotting works through rocks, why not radar?  Seens to me your butt hurt over not being able to use invisibility cloaks which also are not even real.

Why does no one ever complain about the fact that planes have seen through mountains for like forever?

If it's so great, try it! While it is a VERY good tool, ships that carry it have serious drawbacks as well, it's not just tacked onto a good ship.

Another Radar complaining thread? Someone reset the clock.

Why bother?  The reset button would surely be broken by now.

Because it is never broken, because whiners will never stop.

The only thing I don't like about Radar ships is that most of them lack versatility.  German cruisers, I think, are the best overall and they don't even have radar.

Radar working thru mountain is just a bug, just like how BB APs able to do super pens on DDs

Well, that's the practical reality - it exposes folks in smoke, or out of detection range.   And yet, all of the complaints are for it seeing through mountains.    Most of the time when I'm behind a mountain and I see the radar sign - so what???

While they can see through the mountain, they can't shoot through the mountain.    The only thing I've lost is my hidden position.

Which means I'll have to reposition.   And pretty safe behind said mountain.    Or, I can sit there until it expires, and they won't see me move.
