Which Crosshair are you using?

I have been using dynamic crosshair for quite some time already, and I am still finding it a bit difficult to use compared to static. I changed from static because:

1. A "fixed" scale regardless of zoom. (scale with respect to landscape is the same)

2. A challenge for myself.

 

Still practising and finding the feeling (use the force), because I don't have time to do the calculation (see spoilers) on-the-fly. So what crosshair are you using?

Yeah I changed to the Type 7 when it became available. The angular lines are definitely good utility, but given enough battles you tend to pick up a feel for picking up the opponent's movement and relative position anyway and it starts mattering less.

Static type 7, sort of looks like spider web. It helps you with ships sailing away or towards you in an angle. You just match the angular line and shoot.

I tried this before I switched to dynamic, and I got more confused by it instead (not enough battle to practice is also another problem).

I go for 7, easier to aim when using spotter aircraft, and at longer distances against angled ships.

I used to pick the spider web one, but then I found the dynamic one to be more comfortable to use

At the end, it is the same as torp prediction, you don't solely rely on crosshair scales anymore. You do a lot of prediction stuffs.

 

But for dynamic, I don't like that fact that it changes based on what ship you use. Its like I have to adapt everytime I change ship. Thats a lot of trouble for me.

I got better after I learned to use the dynamic crosshair. Quite dangerous when the dynamic crosshair has spider web.

Can hit destroyer from 8km with cruiser and battleships, as long as with correct prediction of enemy's path.

I try change cross hairs several times but it's throw off my aim since scale number on each cross-hair is different

so... I stick with dynamic cross-hair that I used to it most.

Am I the only one preferring the static type 6?

Nope, I also use the type 6, I find all I need to aim well is a horizontal line and a centre point.  Everything else is just unnecessary.

I noticed a lot of dynamic users like me from this post, and spider web also.

I did not really notice that it changes for every ship, I thought it was fixed at 21.6knots.

Don't use crosshair just draw lines on your screen for MLG accuracy

Dynamic crosshair all the way.

It's easier to communicate the targeting numbers when in a group - firing at one ship, declaring "firing at X with lead of 5", allows for a team to better concentrate accurate fire against a target.

What needs to happen is a Dynamic Crosshair with angled lines, rather than just the horizontal line only.
