    How is this possible?

    Well thanks anyway - at least now I know.

    How is this possible?

    At 12.43 PM today, I started the Narai scenario with the Lyon, but only a few minutes into the battle my internet went down (we have been having very hot and stormy weather here). It came back about an hour ago, so I thought I will give it another go. When I logged in, I found I had a 3 battle pink penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. How could I have done that, having no control over the ship? This is a replay of what happened - 20190117_124132_PFSB107-Lyon_s07_Advance.wowsreplay

    Ingame voice overs

    Lol, the British voice overs are not very convincing - no Brits I know pronounce 'Commander' in that way. And in the Dunkirk scenario - they make a very basic blunder in announcing 'Colonel ************* ' of the Royal Air Force. There is no such rank in the RAF. (Even though I live in Australia, I grew up in the UK and have an uncle in the RAF.)

    I need to vent ...

    You are right - I should have written "I've never been sunk by friendly torps, but I have had a few hits" - it's hard to avoid if they are close. But like I said - it's no biggie, and it's only a game. I just think - 'fair 'nuff, I should be more aware of my situation, and take evasive action more quickly'. I guess we all make mistakes, and in spite of all my battles - I am nowhere near good at it. So - you win!

    I need to vent ...

    Good, realistic post. It's not always possible to be miles ahead of the cruisers and battleships. And in a changing battle, unexpected things happen - like what happened to a friend. He launches a spread of torpedoes with not a friendly in sight - only to have a allied cruiser pop out from behind an island straight into their path. These things happen, but they are not always unavoidable. In over 6,600 battles, I have had loads of torpedo alerts, but have never been hit by a friendly torp (and that's not cos friendlies have never fired a torpedo in my direction). You could say that is down to luck, and that would be partly true, but I always react to the torpedo warning sound if I can. So while I take full responsibility if my torps hit a friendly, it would help our team if some players took more notice of the alerts. And like I said - getting pink is no biggie - it's just like two battles away from going back to normal - but I don't like weakening the team by doing that. I also take the point made by a couple of posters that if there is a probability of hitting a team member - you shouldn't launch torpedoes.

    There is always the possibility that a friendly could turn into your torps - specially with long distance (8km or 10km) fish. I'm usually with the other DDs on the front of the battle, and trying to CAP. But I don't just sit there waiting for enemies to come into range - I'm usually always mobile, so directions can change, but I never launch torps when friendlies are in my line of fire, or even close. It's no biggie, but short of never using torpedoes, I wish there was a way of avoiding hitting careless or unaware friendlies.

    Don't anyone take this too seriously, but how many times have you taken care to make sure there are no friendlies between you and the enemy, only to have some dopey cruiser nowhere near your field of fire turn unexpectedly into the path of your spread of torpedoes? There is a clear audible warning in the game about torpedoes in the water - why does no one seem to look around? I never get hit by friendly torpedoes, cos as soon as I hear that sound, I scan all around and take evasive action - why can't others? OK - rant over!

    Daily Missions

    Thanks for that - I only woke up to the chains thing after I posted here. Maybe I'm just too dumb, but I don't think WG explains things well.

    Daily Missions

    Thanks everyone for your replies. I mainly play in Scenario and Co-op modes, but I have been trying to get enough battles to win the Dreadnought, and even though I play loads of battles in Tier 5 (with Ohkotnik) the count stays stuck at 7. I dunno what's going on. Just completed (and won) another 2 missions - still no change to the count.

    Daily Missions

    How do I join Daily Missions for sure? Some of my battles count and some don't! What are the requirements? Can WG make it a bit clearer?

    Best tier for fun?

    My best Tier 5 is Ohkotnik - a bit big and clumsy, slow main battery reload (for a destroyer), and very short range for main guns and torpedos - but if you can sneak up on the opposition - everything from DDs to BBs is in trouble from that salvo of 12 fish. It is a lucky BB which can turn in time from a distance of less than 4km - and much the same for most cruisers. But I had to wait for my birthday money to buy it - cos its not that cheap. Oh and BTW, it's Emile Bertin (a boy's name).

    Comments & Complaints! Nov 2018

    Ooh thanks - I was wondering how I got two vacant slots! I know about the different torpedo speeds, but that still doesn't answer the weird and random sub torpedo targeting. There should be no reason why it is different from the ship torpedo targeting - and I think I understand about lead direction and time. So I must still be missing something. I think I've got it worked out - now earning nearly 100,000 credits a battle! Thanks to everyone who helped.

    Comments & Complaints! Nov 2018

    This isn't a complaint, but I would like to know why the torpedo targeting in the fantasy submarine mode is so random. Like I have no trouble using ship torpedoes - I just line up the white and green markers, and send the fish on their way. Whether they hit or not depends on what the enemy ship does. But with the fantasy subs, you line up with the target perfectly straight, and you sometimes get a green line, but mostly it is yellow. Then when you try and align the green and white markers, the green one changes to white. It's obviously something I don't understand, or am doing wrong, so could somebody please tell me? Also, what does it mean when you get one of the fantasy subs as a reward? Like I already have them all for the duration of the Halloween stage!
  14. I know this is a very small point, and probably not important to anyone, but I have an uncle who flies the Eurofighter Typhoon FGR4 out of RAF Coningsby, and I asked him about this. In the Dunkirk rescue operation, there is a point where the RAF makes a sortie, together with the announcement "This is Colonel **************** of the RAF ..." A very little research would show that the RAF has never had the rank of 'Colonel' since the Royal Flying Corps of the 1914-1918 war (the closest might have been Lieutenant-Colonel = RAF Wing Commander). The ranks of the RAF are (and would have been the same during WW2) - Officer Cadet Pilot Officer Flying Officer Flight Lieutenant Squadron Leader Wing Commander Group Captain Air Commodore Air Vice-Marshal Air Marshal Air Chief Marshal and the top job - Marshal of the Royal Air Force Just something for the developers to think about.

    Impatient players

    You are right, and I must admit that I do get a bit irritated by people who, at the beginning of a battle seem to just sit there and not move, when I'm at full-ahead into the fray. But then I YOLO too much, and often get sunk early - so who's right? They get to play the whole battle while I get to sit and watch. I am still learning about both WOWS and WOWP, which is why I asked these questions. I'm grateful that a lot of people answered, and most said it was OK to use the repair base if you don't have many points left, and having a few more points means you can use those guns longer (and maybe turn the battle around). I wasn't upset by the criticism - I just wasn't sure whether I had done the wrong thing or not.
