Radar and sonar should not fully reveal a ship, only the outline on the map should be present nothing more. Right the mechanic is garbage.

It sounds more like the problem is on your side of the screen, not Wargaming's.

If being revealed for 25 seconds at 12km range is too much for you, then you should play something else.

I can understand if a CV is perma-spotting you, but now you're just digging for stuff to complain about.

Next you're going to complain that enemy DDs can shoot back at you.

One annoying item that has not changed over the CV rework was that STUPID act of putting me back on the ship from the map display on the CV when the battle starts.

I'm trying to set auto-pilot waypoints and WHAM..   Screw you!!!!  Have to start all over.

Thank god Russian cruisers are the only ships with radar.  All any one has to deal with is that pesky 25 second Russian radar.  No other ships have radar, thank god.  Only those dang Russian ships with that annoying 25 sec. radar.  I sure hope they don't put radar on any other ships in the game, and stick to just those Russian ships.

Oh yeah, that's right.  THERE ARE other ships with radar.  Too bad I didn't go to college.  I guess that throws out the whole cherry picked segment of that persons response.

This whine is three years late. People are whining about CVs nowadays. Whining about radar is so passe.

Actually, there is a gripe that I have about radar (and by default hydro as well), but it's not the usual sort of gripe.

My gripe is that you can have radar on and have a perfectly good line of  sight between you and the radared ship, and yet not be able to see that ship if there's a sunk ship with its death smoke obscuring your view.  Radar is supposed to see through smoke, but in this case it doesn't.  And there's not a bloody thing you can do about it.  

What I wish that radar would do in this regard is to remove ALL smoke, not just smoke from smoke generators, but smoke from fires, from the display while radar is functioning.

far bigger issues right now than radar or hydro.

I am guessing he got his DD blown out of the water by a big ol mean cruiser.

also.. why would it matter if it was only the outline of the ship visible? It is still going to be able to get hit. :cap_wander:

I didn't had those trouble you describe :/

 

It's true that sometime fire and smoke from engine is a bit annoying when you want to aims but that's not something related to radar.

No way! Those ships would definitely not have suborbital shell arcs that are relatively easy to avoid at 9~10km range.

If you are close enough for them to hit you repeatedly, then it's not radar that's the problem...
