Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree but I am very tired of being blown to hell by other ships while in smoke, while a CA BEHIND a mountain pops Radar. I am sorry but radar does NOT WORK THROUGH ROCK, this need to be fixed. If I am missing something please let me know. This happens all the time when capping an area the DD is well protected from the other side via ROCKS. If this is "Suppose" to be the way it is I wanted guided torpedoes the go around rocks to blow up the CAs with Radar. Call them Radar locking Torpedoes. This a ridiculous request? Yes just like being seen through rocks with Radar.

The good thing is that the radar only lasts a few seconds and has a cool down period.  The trick is to bait the ship to use the radar and then come back when it is on cool down.

Meh I like my strategy of not capping and getting yelled at until ships other than a DD with 15000+ HP come to help cap when radar is camping hard

Those rocks will also keep the radar emitting Cruiser from shooting at you. I don't see the problem.

Yeah, I like passive games.  I mean who wants DDs to spot or play objectives....

Worst mechanic in online gaming history.

Sadly, WG isn't going to change it.

All this whine about radar is getting boring... :Smile_facepalm:

 

Dont sit in smoke with a radar cruiser nearby. Use islands as cover. WASD like crazy.

Only thing I think of when I realise I am out of position and there is a Russian CA in radar range, "25 seconds of pain"

25, 35, or 40 seconds is NOT a few; especially when you are the ship being targeted by multiple reds.

FYI OP, you can count on the radar spamming community to come out in force to "pooh-pooh" your complaints; they're the players who use the cheat often and don't want WoW to nerf it back to ... well ... REALITY! Some people will do anything to win.

Quit [edited] and adjust your tactics to compensate.

Yes, adjust tactics by playing a BB or a CA.

Yes because only the radar cruiser can shoot at you LOL as the DD is immune to all other incoming fire while the radar is active.

Day's since "Radar working through islands should be fixed" thread: 6    0

They can keep locking radar threads (I'm sure this one gets locked soon), but the threads will keep getting restarted, because it's a broken mechanic with no counter.

Besides chain radar from multiple radar cruisers, the Radar Surveillance Mod is especially ridiculous.  What other buff in the game gives you 40%?  Not only is radar the most OP consumable which needs nerfing, but WG hands out a 40% duration buff.  Imagine if the Akizuki got a 40% reduction in reload time, or if a British BB got a 40% bonus to damage control.  WG has literally given a 40% buff to Des Moine's already-OP radar, increasing it to 56 seconds.  In game time, that is forever, and of all consumables radar is the one that needed a buff the least.

It's just horrible game design.

Go ahead and lock the thread now, but another one will soon start.

If you are in open water sitting in smoke within range of a radar ship you are doing it wrong. Watch minimap. Identify radar boats. Stay away from them. Communicate with team to focus fire them early on. Time your attacks, if you must, so that you can operat during radar cool down periods.

Its a super simple mechanic. Very easy to work around for even a total potato.

Wow, the hysteria is coming early in this thread. Lol.
