    The slow death of American Destroyers

    Yep, We've all hung up our binoculars. There will be no more World of Warships from me. Tried a few times since the update and I can't fire guns in my tinfoil DD at all without being immediately targeted and blown out of the water in a hail of fire. U.S DDs had good gun range but the trajectory to the target was a joke, I had the AA and max gun range increase of 20%, now that range is a liability because everyone on the map sees you. Upgrade your AA and your detectabilty become available for everyone on the map. It's a complete and utter waste of what was a good game. Why not just line the DDs up in a row like in a coconut shy and the lazy bumblers in their BBs can shoot easier. Enjoy your BB battles because there's a lot of guys out there feel the same as me. DDs are fast becoming extinct because of a stupid update which has ruined the game. The more I type the more pissed off I become because I played the game regularly and the WoW team have really screwed it this time. And they STILL haven't sorted out that stupid, stupid radar and sonar. Radar and Sonar from WW2 CANNOT see round corners and behind islands unless it's fantasy World of Warships.

    Detection mechanic change - Worst thing that happned to WOWS

    I have lost count of the number of times I've been sank by other ships when having a dog fight with other DD's, the mistake is to actually fire your guns, if you do then you are dead for sure now. Better to just torp', Yep, what a waste of a good game. Get rid of the gun upgrades and concentrate on torp' upgrades.

    Detection mechanic change - Worst thing that happned to WOWS

    Very much different. I do not fire my guns at all now. They'd be better removed because to fire them is suicidal now. I don't need to worry though. I am jacking it in. A step too far and they never addressed the 'magic radar' that sees around corners and through islands or the fact that ships can also see through islands at close range [less than about 2km]. If they would just sort out the more important and real faults with the game firstly instead of changing other perceived issues. You wouldn't have guessed I was a fan of the DD's.
  4. Personally I think you should only be visible for 16.5km in a DD during firing, when you stop firing main guns it should reduce to 6.5km immediately. The detection range in a Fletcher now is ridiculous, almost the full map size in the 2 games I fired them.. I have the AA upgrade 20% range added, pity that you also get disadvantaged with the extra main gun firing range too, 10% onto main gun firing range, the Fletcher fires guns skyward and takes ages to hit enemy at max' range. Sitting ducks now, One good hit and it's over. I played 2 games last week and got wrecked as soon as I fired my guns. Played once today and that's it for me, I've had enough. It would be better to blank off the guns and only use torpedoes. firing guns is suicide. They've ruined the game this time. Anyway, Summer is here, time to do something else instead of being sank in a tinfoil ship.

    smoke not working, not radar.

    Just been blasted out of a game there. I was using hatsuharu with 6.5km concealment. 1xDD at opposite side of high island, 2km away. When I smoked and was stationary, I was still visible the whole time. No other ship was nearer. I didn't last long as the shells came in. I could see the other DD the whole time so kept avoiding any line of sight. No radar, no planes, just detected the whole short 30 seconds till blasted out the water. Any ideas, is it an update glitch?

    German Battleships

    I don't care what anyone says. The new German ships are far too strong. One hit from the Scharnhorst for example takes my tier 7 DD out. You can't get near them either for random but deadly scatter fire. Their main guns may be firing in the opposite direction but don't even think of getting within 7k of them, you will be sunk and this is nothing to do with player skill.. WoW have got this wrong, way wrong. Who in God's name set them so high?

    German Battleships

    Latest German Warships are far too good. Impossible to sink and everyone should just buy a German ship. I thought it was a game balanced out for everyone. Obviously WOW has made a mistake. Pretty hacked off tbh.

    That's a strange reply to a question but you carry on. I have all the answers I need without some people looking down their noses. I think I will stop the post now. Thanks to all who gave good positive advice. I am surely better for it.

    Yeh, yours looks like triumph Spitfire but with 6 cyl's. I was lucky because the steering rack was forward of the wishbone which kept the wheel reasonably straight till I got stopped, it took me over the other side of the road but I got it back over before I head on'd into someone, the wishbone and trunnion were worn into the fixing bolt by the road surface abrasion. Anyway, better not talk on WoW. it's for ships, not cars.

    Hi Vogel, Thanks for the tips. Since the detection range now shows when firing guns I have tried to keep beyond this line for gun attacks on large ships. I tended to just blast away at distance till I found out that shells cost money so I try and cut down the amount I fire now. I tend to aim for BB if its at distance [just like you said] I worked my way up the tiers and am probably beyond my limit now. I have got a lot of info' through this post and the replies. I will continue using my Erie and work up the tiers again to level 5 and use it for pocket money. I just feel that at tier 10 there is no incentive to continue. As previously stated, if the Captains skills could be upped beyond 18 points then that would suffice. As things are, I will probably retire for the Summer unless I start paying to play which I don't appreciate doing after buying credits at various stages of upgrades. Thanks for your positive advice, much appreciated.

    Nice GT6, I had one of those, a Mark4 which I think was the last of them. Sold it after the front trunnion popped at 80mph, not fun. Anyway, thanks for your input. Appreciated.

    That's about right for me, My average is rising so maybe just need to fire less torps and shells. I have had the odd 70k + game. I've also been 'splattered' the odd game too. Captains skills is a way of incentivising the game otherwise it becomes a bit drab. Thanks for your comments though, It does help me understand the game better.

    Thanks for explaining. Maybe I need to change my view on the game. I still think the Captains skills should go beyond 18, maybe after each 300,000 another 1 skill point would be incentive enough. As it is, I will probably hang up my binoculars for the Summer!
