Cortez10 posted a topic in ArchiveAfter playing for a while world of warships i noticed that the supposed distances that are displayed between your ship and an allied/enemy ships are totally incorrect. You can tell just by looking at these numbers that something must be totally wrong! In one match for example i was not more than 200 meters behind an allied BB and the game showed a distance of 1.1km. How do i know that it couldn't be more than 200 meters? Well i was sailing a Myoko and this ship had a length of about 205m and regarding the gap between me and the BB it was impossible that 5 Myokos would fit in there. The gap had barely the length of the Myoko so the distance had to be about 200m. The same thing can be observed when a DD gets in your visual range. Mostly they are about 6km away, at least thats what the game tells you, but 6km means that about 30 Myokos would fit in between. But it turns out that those DDs are not 6km away, they are only about 2km away and thats total [edited]!!! This makes is it even harder to evade their torps. After those observations i did some math considering the length of my ship, the displayed distance and the length of the other ship as well as how much the other ship appears to be shorter in that distance. I was just using a set square on my screen and a calculator and my obsversations proved to be right!! This whole system is total crap!!! Another problem are the speeds of the ships and the travel distances which are also totally incorrect. I did a little experiment with an allied afk BB. He was about 11km away when i turned towards him with the maximum speed of my Myoko which is about 35kn or 65kph. Physics tells me that it would take about 10 minutes for me to reach the BB, but i traveled those 11km in a little bit more than 3 minutes (the guy was afk the whole time!). How is that even possible?! Who is responsible for this crap? The developers were either drunk when they programmed that bs or they didnt attend any math classes in school at all. I hope that a mod reads this and leaves those guys a memo that they should fix that. That ruins the whole game!!!
I noticed that the distances shown for allied ships in the tactical map are wrong. Close ships have greater distances than distant ships and none of the distances are the same as those displayed above the ships in live view. Is this a known fault or is it peculiar to me?
