Had a battle in my DD. Enemy Torps came in close range (approx 500m - 1000m) and my "sixth sense" turned on.

Enemy DD was already dead and far "behind" me, last ship BB on enemy team was 9km away.

 

Bug or Game mechanic ?

if it really 10 second delay then I don't want to use that skill at all, you will get shot at first before the 6th sense show lol

 

oh btw. some question about 6th sense ... when the indicator show the icon along with plane icon, does it mean your planes got spotted or your ship got spotted by plane ?

I can confirm it's 3 seconds or less.

However, there is a certain delay about 10 seconds before you are unspotted again after you get out of detection range. The same applies to shooting too.

 

And yes, if the icon is an exclamation mark with a plane, then it means you are spotted by en enemy aircraft.

Six sense is without delay or "very very" short, best practise to control this is inside your DD if you know your detection range.

 

I think, the only way to explain is, if you are spotted it counts for further 20 seconds, even if the distance is beyond your detection range.

Counting this and coming out behind an island could explain why the BB 9km away could spot me.

 

Edit:

10 sec or 20 sec. I am not 100% sure, I think I have read somewhere it is 20 sec.

Torpedoes cannot spot ships, but a plane could.

Also firing your guns will give your position away, being lit on fire also increases your detectable range.
