How do you report someone for cheating?

Hi, first of all, I'm a new player, I had a game where I was HMS Orion and my opponent was Kaiser, both are tier 4 battleships. It was near the end and we both exposed our broadside to shoot each other.

What I didn't expect is his turrets have like no CD at all, kept shooting at me relentlessly like if he was a cruiser, I just watched him pummel my ship into Ironbottom Sound while my turrets are still at 10'ish  seconds CD.

We won that game by points tho but I was really suspecting that he was cheating, and to my surprise, there doesn't seem to be a way to report cheaters in-game.

Do you have replay enabled?

Too bad you only have the option to report through the battle stats screen

Hover to the player name and report as hacking

Nope, how do you enable replay?

there's this thing called "secondaries",

there is no such thing as "infinite reload hacks" the only few hacks there are in game are generally aimbots and shell landing position indicator

 

why do new players always call hacks when the get outplayed instead of trying to learn game mechanics

What captain are you running on? and the ship you suspect?

Do not reply to this inquiry.

You are not allowed to name and shame on the forum.

Cheers

Hmmm you may be right, I'm not so sure now, sadly there isn't any replay.

 

How do you delete a post? I can't seem to find the options.

The question was 19 point Captain or no captain? Not the name of the player

I am sorry.

In my defense, your question was only made clear by your last post.

Cheers

If you get close to an enemy ship,at the tier you were playing under approx 5km,the secondaries will start firing,which as drakon233 said is most likely what has happened.

Replays are in the game client now. Look for the folder of replays in your C:/ folder and upload it here.

Thanks I just checked the replay, the shots he fired at me are HE, so I think they're secondaries. His main gun was AP.... my bad.

 

My secondaries weren't shooting, maybe Kaiser secondaries have a longer reach and outranges Orion, which I didn't know.

 

I'll upload the replay anyway. Sorry for the false alarm, those bullets are pretty big so I thought it was a no reload hack or something.

Make sure your secondaries are turned on.

Toggling P activates them. A little icon shows up when they are turned off.

You can focus them on a ship by using control key and the cursor.

They were on...I never turn them off unless I play DD.

 

I just checked the wiki, the range for Kaiser secondary is 4.5km, while for Orion it's 3.5km.

It was definitely his secondaries shooting at you,and looks like he had the AFT secondary skill as they opened up at about 5.2km.

You will find that the range increase as the tiers get higher,especially with German battleships.

Couple of pointers for you to if you are interested from watching your replay:

Use AP when firing at cruisers and battleships ( depending on the angle! ).You could have done a lot more damage to the Kaiser with AP.

Try not to sail completely broadside against other battleships as they can a lot more damage to you that way.Angle you ship just enough so that you can shoot at the enemy.Another thing you can do is sail nose towards the enemy,and only swing the tail out when the guns are nearly ready to fire,then swing the tail back.This will reduce how much damage you take a lot.

Thanks for the tips, helps a lot since I'm playing a lot of UK BB right now.

how long was the reload?

with India Delta, Superintendent, and premium consumables

1+0.48x5=3.4 amount of total HP

with Adrenaline Rush (lost100HP -20 speed of reloading)

so maybe with a reload time of 13 seconds (cruiser?)

or maybe it was just secondaries

Or of course hack
