WG instituted a rule for radar where it takes 6 seconds for a ship other than the radar ship to target a ship. Is it the same for hydro?

Bacon is always good, regardless of its circumstances. Anyone that says otherwise is a communist!

That rule was added recently to give DDs a chance to get away.  For the first six seconds, only the ship using radar can see the DD.  After six seconds, the radared ship is rendered on the rest of the team's minimaps.  Before this was added, a DD (or other ship) would get immediately blasted by any enemy ships that were watching the cap and the ship had almost no chance to maneuver or even get steam up.

Ships will immediately show on your allies' minimap when you radar them, it's only after six seconds that they render on-screen and can be locked onto.

Yes, but a more appropriate question in this case would be, if someone else drops the bacon, what is considered a socially acceptable amount of time to wait before I try to beat them to it? Or is it fair game the moment it's been dropped?

There is NO time limit to eat bacon, contaminated or otherwise.

Off to the salt mines with you  :)

Depends.

When was the last time that floor has been cleaned?

What kind of a mess has the mop been used to clean up before?  Some of those mops have been used to clean restrooms, you know.

Ummmh...bacon is free game BEFORE it's dropped.  It's just easier on the drop.

Thanks for the correction.  Forgot that it was targeting that was delayed.
