Once they have been spotted they should STAY spotted,  This hear one minute gone the next is a pile of you know what.

Thanks for your replies.

That is what detection range is about. If you want to permanently spot something drive a CV.

 

 

Added later:

It is even somewhat historical. Keeping targets located was a problem. 

Sure a DD, and cruisers,  can see you (if we are talking BBs) when you can't see them. That is a balance feature to equalize the ship types in game. 

How about radar and hydro seeing through islands?

If you are behind an island and something else is spotting, even a spotterplane you can shoot at targets that can't see you.

This game is not just a shooting gallery, at least for most ships, somewhatinjest. (Another down vote to follow I am sure)

You've made the mistake of thinking this is a game about battleships and whatnot. That is not quite right. This is a vision control game with a theme concerning battleships and whatnot (kinda like if you played chess but the pieces weren't knights but airplanes or animals or whatever). Once I figured that out, I was much happier and my gameplay improved alot.

Concealment & spotting are balancing mechanics. NO! it is not realistic because radar worked 24/7 and had a range of over 20 miles or 32km.. But we battle in the fantasy world WG created for this game, not in real life.

The only thing wrong with the current spotting system is some BBs have lower detection ranges than many cruisers.
