Admiral_Bayer posted a topic in GameplayHi there, I have a suggestions to the upcoming radar change and an idea which makes community gameplay easier Lets start with the good old radar theme. 1.) Suggested Radar change Radar is ok although I sold most of my DDs because of it. In games with up to 6 or more radarships on the enemy Team -- fun is over. Suggested change: -Make radar a full time turning radar. (Make it radar all the time). That tells a DD exatly when a radarship comes in range and gives him the option to turn around or continue. And as said make it a turning radar with maby a 10sec rotation speed for a 360 degree turn. (Spotted ... fading away.....spotted...fading away.) It only should give the Radarship and its team the chance to take a snapshot at the radared ship. No spotting longer than 2-3 seconds at a time.....but for the whole battle! Only the people really concentrating should be able to take a successful shot. Gameplay: Enemy DD gets spotted and fading away. If you want to shoot at it then you will have start turning guns on predicted course and wait for next round of radar. DD spotted again...predict speed and course again and take the shot before DD is fading away again. Pros: -Full game duration radar. -Evereybody can still see the DD. -DD gets instantly warned if a radarship gets close and can leave radar range (also a con) -Much better protection for ships guided by a radarship. -Good chance for anti radar gameplay by using those 8 second gaps. -DDs don't get hammered away within one or more long radarphases. -DDs can change course and speed in those 8 second gaps making it harder for enemys to focus on you when spotted again. -Enhances radar cruisers life expectance Cons: -If your guns are not loaded or not pointing in the right direction, you can't take a shot and have to wait for the next radar turn. -DD gets instantly warned if a radarship gets close and can leave radar range -Gets rid of ships being able to sneak around the map until radar cruisers are out of position or sunk. -Hard for any ship to sneak up to radarships. -Makes DDs hard to hit for people which have slow turning guns. -Some DDs cant get into stealth torp range -Radarships will be focused even harder. -Well positioned radarships could constantly spot a whole map. It won't make it much easier, but then that instant wrecking surprise for DDs is gone and radarships more or less get buffed. By the way: Where is the german radar? Like the FuMG 38 G (Seetakt) which was installed on Graf Spee and even submarines? One of the first radar systems in use. 2.) Status buttons in the harbour and automatik "AFK"- status. If I play it is hard to tell who is online or AFK. Its good to see who is in a battle but we really have issues with invitations for clan battles. You invite member A wait for 5 minutes...invite Member B, and so on. Takes ages. Also I catch myself doing all sorts of thing while the game is running. Go to the basement doing the laundry, fetching the mail or heading to the mall next door. But I cant always post my activities it in every chat and dont want to disconnect from the game. So I get invites to clan battles & divisions or people try to chat with m while I am AFK. Also there is times I dont want to be spammed by the clan and just play the game. - Suggestion: - Make it an "automatic AFK" after 10 minutes of not touching mouse or keyboard and not being in battle. (AFK message on screen). Additionally give the harbour 3 Buttons -available (Green light) -DND/Busy (Orange light) (Online status hidden + no invites or personal text chat possible). Just playing for yourself! For everything else people have clan chat, teamspeak or discord etc. -AFK (Red light) (shows AFK symbol on screen and besides name/no gameplay possible) shortkey should be possible The status DND/Busy has to be clearly visible or should be mentioned after every battle. This makes it easier to setup clan battles and lets you see who fell asleep while waiting for clan battles to take place :-) Hope you like the ideas and hope that at least the status buttons get positive reactions from the community. Have fun. Admiral_Bayer
