DD detection range

OK so here is the scenario.

Before each game starts when I play DD I always check who has better concealment on the enemy DD's.

Now quite often my Benson and Fubuki are better by a fair margin than most if not all enemy DD.

However I have found often I get detected before I actually see them on the minimap or main screen.

I dont think its a bug but it seems like the time lag between WG server and me is just enough to screw up any advantage.

It is like by the time I am supposed to spot them and the game draws them on screen is too long.

Not sure if I am making myself understood but has anyone else noticed this.

You know, Fubuki can play against Mutsuki that have 6 km concealment (or even better)

It happens no matter what DD you are playing, you get detected and frantically search around for the enemy DD which will appear about 10 seconds later.

Thats not what I am saying I think the time it takes for the signal to go from my machine to WG server and back to my machine to tell it to show enemy DD is causing that vital second or 2 delay. I am in Brisbane Australia. It has to be lag.

I'm in Melbourne and with our crappy internet here in Australia there is not much we can do about it other than to cope and adjust.

We will never get a server here due to our population and the high maintenance cost compared to other nations in the SEA region.

its a bit of both with lag and with your computer as well, the slower the computer with older cards will take longer for the image to be shown on your screen.

ive had the same problem as well.

I noticed that on my side, the DD icon on the minimap is already revealed by my allies but it took 3 or 4 seconds to render the target's visuals.

I don't know the root cause but for me, it's probably server delayed (despite my ping is 35ms?!) or my desktop performance (2011 computer, 2GB RAM, GT 730 videocard).
