Des Moines Ridiculous Radar

I've spent many $$ on this game since it was released, and countless hours of my life grinding many ships.

I have a 19 pt Shima and 19 Gearing, which have been essentially neutered because of the Des Moines ridiculous

radar. Since WG has ignored the thousands of requests to nerf the damn thing, I'll go find something else to play.

Let's see which happens first:

1. The DD mafias enter and spread their "Woe are DDs" crusade

2. This thread merged into the radar dumpster thread

3. This thread locked up

Odd that you pick the DM to complain about as it only has 9.9 km radar and the largest detection range of any of the radar ships aside from Moskva which has a radar range of almost 12 km.

The DM is easy to avoid.

I really hate this sort of post.

If you're not going to get back onto the forum, why bother posting?

Furthermore, as much as I'd like to see some changes to radar, radar in its current flawed state isn't the end of the world, for crying out loud.  If you're this bent out of shape over radar as a DD player, you must not be a very good DD player if you can't adapt.  It's just that simple.  I play DDs a lot.  And I manage to do more than well enough even when playing in battles with lots of radar.  You just have to adapt to it and know what you're doing, rather than keep on doing the same thing you always do, get owned, and throw temper tantrums because you're not able to do what you always do.

It's not an airport. You don't have to announce your departure.

Worcester and Seattle's radars have been nerfed to 9km, so DM now has better radar.

OP has 77 games in the Gearing, 755 in the Shima, 1300+ in the Umakaze, and 1800+ in the Isokaze.  I have a strong feeling that OP rarely encountered Des Moines radar at T2 and T4.

#1, just because you spend money doesnt mean you get to have special treatment, because you mentioning that you "spend many $$ on this game" makes it seem like you think youre entitled to something, youre not
#2, radar alone hasnt "neutered" DDs
#3, dont let the door hit you on the way out

The problem is that he wanted to be able to play his Shima the exact same way he was able to play the Umakaze and Isokaze, without having to deal with radar.    The thing is that even if radar got "fixed" in the way I'd like (no seeing thru islands, radar only fully spots for the ship mounting the radar but is on minimaps for team mates), he still wouldn't be able to play like there was no radar around.

On another level, this is the problem with being not only a DD main, but a DD main who plays a single nation's DDs almost exclusively.  When some counter comes along that makes life really difficult for that single nation's DDs, you don't have other options.  This is why I think it's good to play all ship types and nations.  It gives you a far wider variety of ship options for those times when life gets rather rough on a single ship type or a single navy/ship type combo, like IJN DDs.  For crying out loud, if he played Russian DDs, he could just hop in a Khaba and laugh at all those radar ships, and gun them down from outside radar range.

Yes longer range radar but a much larger detection range as well.

This doesn't even remotely makes sense. Shima and Gearing both outrange DM's radar. If you got caught in it you got outplayed.
