  1. is it me being unlucky or is there something wrong ; twice in the same game today I encounter situation where I spot a Des Moines and made sure I stay out of range , one time its 10.7KM one time its 10.9KM and only other ship around is their Daring and BB ( Montana ) , but yet then I still got Radar spotted and I was like running way out to something like 12KM before its off me , hey but its Des Moines not Soviet Cruiser .. something wrong .. anyone of you ever got something like this ; hey its already too hard to play DD its just unfair this happens
  2. Even with the CV rework I've still been running my radar Mino, and you know what --- she's still a beast. It's some of the mostly fun I can have, specially given the fact I haven't seen Ocean in a year... I tell my team at the start I have radar, and everyone scrambles to smoke for me; it's just beautiful! (Not that I need or expect them to) Anyone else love man-mode Minotaur?
  3. So the 8 - 10 have Radar in the same slot as Catapult Fighter. Reload times are sub-standard for tier and spicy 1.70 sigma... Balancing factors? (They will probably buff them later on) Radar that can only detect BBs and CVs. Kinda useless if you ask me. You can read about the upcoming Russian BB line here: Tier 3 - 7: https://medium.com/@devblogwows/low-tier-ussr-bb-7d13efcf866e?fbclid=IwAR1M3T8-oU1BNai13kXGoP9IZQmvEYzbbS383RM7ZCIK_9deKVJnD1KbmTw Tier 8 - 10, and the Premium - Lenin (all of these have radar): https://medium.com/@devblogwows/high-tier-ussr-bb-9e599ee4f4b3?fbclid=IwAR1aWFt9cWNB60qYN7bl_jR4oFP_tQnw-aGANWI7KkZq-m1jjfPq12H9u9g Tier 8, 9 and 10 have more HP than German counterparts. BIAS DETECTED!!! AGAIN, where are the stat posts for the RN CVs??? They were announced EARLIER, right??? UPDATE 1: Surveillance Radar. Interface improvement. Flooding. Flooding has been changed (mostly nerfed). Sell your German and RN DDs now!!! https://medium.com/@devblogwows/radar-flooding-c8711f9e87a7?fbclid=IwAR0ycTR_PWVQpz8GNSKBvnO997oKCMPhKsr0ItByx2NORmoAbwgIjVB9NIo UPDATE 2: Russian BBs confirmed to have limited charges of Damage Control Party. Literally cyka bylat Rush B and die in the first 10 mins -OR- snipe from max range the whole match.

    Future Radar Changes

    I think this has potential. Think of the times you have been spotted by a ship that has rushed forward, hidden himself in a place where he cant fire at you, and used radar to light you up for the team? This will help many DDs survive the first 5 minutes. And encourage players to pay attention to their team mates, and the mini map.
  5. Dear WG modelling team, The Tier IX British DD JUTLAND's navigation radar is an old type 945 and the feed horn is at the front of the reflector (flat face of array) so you have modeled this correctly but you then have the radar rotating in an Anti-Clockwise direction, this is wrong all radars of that era and even today always rotate in a Clockwise direction. So it may be worth your while checking other vessel's navigation radars in their models. Otherwise love the models great work team. Thank You.
  6. just happen last match me (shimakaze), friendly zao and Montana try to protect middle cap enemy Worcester, Seattle and Missouri approaching ....and cyclone kick in our 'vision range' reduce to 8 kilometer BUT! radar icon popup and those three openly fire at us like.... freely undetected! radar made them see us from 10km away and open fire at us, but we can't see them! they outside 8 km vision range!! it completely one-sided! when radar icon disappear, few second later another radar pop up and they happily obliterate us freely again you all know how many shell those ship can put out during those radar time, and at least 2 of them are synchronous they radar time. 3 of us melt in few minute without any way to counter it at all! are WG sure that this is 'working as intended' ??? only option for non-radar ship in cyclone is to hide till it pass?
  7. There are more ships that are getting Radar the technology in WW2 would limit the ship with Radar as the only ship to see the enemy ie via there scope. Any other freindly ship that did not have radar equiped could not see the enemy ship but would receive an approx location indicator from the Radar Ship via signals. Now this leads me to why can't WG make it that detection for Radar and Hydro is limited to the ship that carrry these consumables why should a non radar ship get the benefit of seeing an enemy ship?
  8. How do DD's deal with so much radar? With the new US cruiser line and the new Russian cruisers with 11k radar and with 4-6 radar ships per side it have become very unpleasant to play a DD in its normal role. And when you play more passive to live, your team harasses you because your not doing your job. Yes In an ideal world the team works well together and supports each other to mitigate the problem, but as everyone knows in randoms that is a fantasy, no one listens to common sense. Is War gaming going to recognize the imbalance with DD,s and radar ships? The video link is to give reference to the problem, credit to Zerra and Flambass for highlighting the problem on their videos. #ddlivesmatter
  9. I've just been in a match in a DD with a friendly Iowa playing drakes and dragons around islands with an enemy Des Moines and Iowa. Despite using islands for cover to avoid insta death when the radar is popped, I still died despite good tactics by me and the friendly Iowa. Why? Enemy Des Moine pops radar. We hide behind island. Radar stops. We come out from behind island and start sniping at enemy Des Moine who starts to backtrack. Enemy Iowa shows up. Both me and friendly Iowa starts to make a get away. Enemy Iowa puts himself in a very tactically vulnerable position by leaving the cover of the islands to enter the open ocean and the enemy Des Moine is way back behind the islands and cannot fire at us because the Des Moine has no line of sight to fire because of the islands he's hiding behind. Meanwhile enemy Iowa is dodging my torps, I've deployed smoke and both my Akizuki and friendly Iowa are slowly tearing the enemy Iowa to pieces. That enemy Iowa should be dead because my Akizuki and friendly Iowa should be able to wail on his lonely ass long before the Des Moine is able to dig himself out of the hole he dug himself behind the island and lend supporting fire. But that's not what happened. Enemy Des Moine pops radar yet again from behind his island hidy spot (we're still within the whopping 10km range of his radar which covers 50% of the map) when we were just recovering from the last radar pop and then I get blown to smithereens because radar penetrates everything known to man except kryptonite and the Des Moine and Iowa then tag team my friendly Iowa and take him down. Complete and utter rubbish. That's not how tactics work. The following reforms need to happen to radar to not only make radar more realistic and true to life, but also to avoid rewarding players for bad gameplay and bad tactics: Radar must NOT penetrate islands. Radar doesn't penetrate islands in real life, definitely not in WWII, there is no reason why it should penetrate islands in WOWS. Radar must have a longer cool down to avoid people popping it constantly. It's ridiculous. Smoke has a longer cool down than radar and it's not nearly as deadly as radar. Radar should at least have as long a cool down as smoke. Radar should have a longer cool down than smoke. Otherwise we get this stupid situation where a Des Moine player is rewarded for bad gameplay and bad tactics. Pop radar to spot enemies near island. Back away. Wait for enemies to attack your ally who has done something tactically stupid and pop radar again from 10km away behind an island to expose them from behind smoke. Meanwhile, unlike smoke, popping radar from behind an island totally alters the gameplay in your favour and leaves you 100% tactically safe. And in their infinite wisdom, WG has given radar a much shorter cool down than smoke. (Yes smoke has a much longer duration but it is utterly meaningless given radar can cut through it at any time) It's really important that the cool down and island penetration of radar is adjusted because, unlike smoke, radar has absolutely zero ways to counter in the game. And lazy players use radar repeatedly to put themselves in bad tactical situations and then pop radar constantly to bail themselves out. I realise WOWS is only a game and a gross simplification of war, but that's not how warfare works. You put yourself in a bad tactical situation in a battle and you die. Radar ain't going to save you. The game should be about tactics and strategy, not cheap radar tricks for lazy or bad players which have no effective counter other than never attacking the enemy and constantly running away. And for the radar fan boi's out there, I challenge you to consider what WOWS would be like if the game allowed players to lay down a 10km smoke screen in all directions, including through islands, every 120 or 180 seconds. Definitely not fun. My best guess is WG likes people paying money for premium radar so they can troll other players. As long as the cash keeps rolling in via "troll face lols", why change a good thing?
  10. Hi, as the title suggests, Musashi's Haifuri camo is not accurate to the one in WoWs, and I think WG should fix it. First, Musashi is missing the modern radars that it is supposed to have: But Harekaze has the correct radars: Musashi is also supposed to have her name at the back of the ship: Again this is missing on Musashi's HSF camo: But, it is not missing on Harekaze: Even the way WG makes the red stripes is wrong: Since I also paid to buy the HSF camo for Musashi, I think WG should fix these glaring inaccuracies on the camo. If they can get it right on Harekaze, they have no reason to make so many mistakes on Musashi. Yamato's HSF camo is also missing her name and modern radars. I really think WG should fix these, or not call these HSF camos because they are inaccurate to the ships in the anime.

  12. Recently, there are alot more radar ships around, too many of them in fact. Forget about the T8 mm, it's still broken but I know you guys will never fix it. Look at the screenshot, the enemy has 6 radar ships! Yes the minotaur is also running radar. I always see THREE Missouri in a team. This did not just happen in one game, pretty much these few days this has been a real problem. We don't mind having to wait a little longer for the mm to balance the shit out. Please address this issue ASAP, especially since you want to remove the Missouri, lots of players are rushing to get that [content removed]. Inappropriate/derogatory.

  13. the moment when a ship like French Cruiser is rarely played...... no one realize it got radar.... so there is Amagi and Lo Yang at 14km.... the Amagi have only 1/2 HP..... the GG Lo Yang try to smoke it up.... i am getting closer.... pop up radar and keep shooting Amagi..... it sunk..... i also shoot kidd inside the smoke with radar, deal 5K damage but someone steal my kill...... i am always wonder why Charles Martel got very high stat on wows.number.... why Algerie is so Trash Compared to Charles Martel.... now i am understand..... it got radar! Note : This is Ranked Battle

RUUUNN Skarhabek : no i am promise i wont ram, also i am swear i am not equip any Yankee flag Rasputin : oh boi, i am forget to equip ramming flag.... bye (turning away the ship) Skarhabek : G@D D#MN !T get back here, i am going to ram now Rasputin : i knew it! you got ramming flag! Activate SPOOD BEEST! (and then lost in the filth) Skarhabek : howling sheet where is my RADAAAR!!

    Fix MM please

    Hi captains, this morning I had a match like this, and guess what? Our DDs can't do anything, they have 3 radar CAs and a division with 2 radar BBs, and how much we have? Only 1 radar CL. I really wonder how MM system work and how it give us this kind of team.
  18. On domination maps radar can be absolutely crucial as it allows teams to drive out or kill DDs that attempt to cap or defend caps from smoke, while using their own smokes to repel cruisers and BBs. In matches like this team assignment should be balanced out so both sides have same or at least close number of radars. 5 radars(and 2 belfasts) vs 0 radars is quite miserable. -

    Radar in Tier 5 matches?

    I just completed a Tier 5 match in which I was sitting in smoke with only two enemy ships within 8km (roughly) of me when the indicator for "spotted by radar appeared". The two ships closest were an Omaha within 4 km and a Wyoming. The Omaha did the deed and removed me from the game....(No replay available from me I'm afraid). According to Wiki; neither of those ships should have radar. Is it a bug?

    Smoke working as intended?

    Currently smoke is hiding the ships completely. However if radar assisted fire control mechanics are to be considered the target in smoke should appear in the minimap, much like detected enemies in cyclone. I know this will be a big drawback for the DDs and CLs but then again can this not be applied for the select ships that had radar assisted fire control systems?

    Matchmaker balancing Radar ships

    Is it possible someone seriously considers balancing Radar based ships like they do CV's? It is lethal to any Domination based game in random or ranked with there is unequal amounts of radar. In Ranked it is so common to see Atlanta's and Belfasts on one side that the outcome is almost guaranteed at the start. Really you need to look at this as now there is no point taking Schors, Myoko, Pensacola into Ranked as you almost guarantee the other side has an advantage. Basically you are dooming these ships never to be played after R10. In Randoms - the problem is compounded with new players who just do not understand the mechanic and get blasted early on. DD is stressful enough without never been able to cap due to the Belfast imbalance. Have seen a few games where there were 4 x Belfast on one side and 1 on the other. Just ludicrous.

    Cant find a proper title but please read

    So I've been thinking if battleships had range finders and radar judging by what I know hopefully I'm correct but range finders are people in an armored housing with a telescopic looking pair of binoculars. (again sorry if I sound stupid I didn't really do much research on these) However if these range finders and radars had parts to do with the accuracy of the main battery guns if these were damaged by incoming fire shouldn't that make the firing accuracy a little worse? If you haven't figured out what I'm trying to suggest yet it's a suggestion that if we make these parts vulnerable to incoming fire that should make it more of a challenge to fire at the enemy, if a shell lands on or near the radar dish or range finder it can either render it useless or damaged so the repair ability can fix it otherwise it will take 30 seconds to get the range finder back in to operation, meanwhile if the majority or all range finders are damaged by a full salvo the accuracy of the return fire will be less accurate.

    your opinions, from 0.5.5 to now. keep it civil.
  24. oh my...the game meta is gonna change with all these cruisers poppin up their radars.I haven't got my gearing yet. At least give a detection icon to know that i am spotted in my Fletcher by either a radar or hydro(different detection icon).40 secs is very long for the des monies.Imagine being near that flamethrower detected for 40 secs.I don mind the hydro upgrade for the German coz i never engage in a gun battle with those km cruisers. Cant wait to panic smoke when i get detected by a radar.Peace sauce: http://worldofwarships.eu/

    Active Sonar/Radar

    Give destroyers the ability to use Active Sonar/Radar, it can be an active ability with so many charges or like the damage control active, with only a cool down. The idea is, when a ship switches to/uses Active Sonar/Radar for a short duration their view range is significantly increased and all ships within that range are spotted, but because the ship "Went Active", every ship within that radius (that got spotted) also spot the ship that went 'Active'. And the ships that get spotted get a warning saying something like "Warning, Active Radar Detected" and puts a big red target on the ship that went 'Active'. This would give the destroyers another way of spotting for their team,
