Hello people,

 

CB season is over and I am so disturbed by one fact:

 

Islands... they are frikking terrible and full of bugs. As someone who played des moines and had to kiss dozen of them, I felt I was stuck way more than  I should have been.

 

Anyone else had similar feeling?

Me? No.

 

In all our clan battles I remember one player getting stuck during a match.

The last time I got stuck must have been over six months ago.

 

Yes, there are some invisible spots near islands that block your course, but you can usually reverse out of them.

I have been trying to teach myself not to steer away if I come too close to an island, but to runt straight at it. One can always back straight off, but if you glide in through a turn, you can beach your keel and remain stuck for quite some time.

The trick is to not confuse this situation with how to handle oneself during traffic rush hours.:Smile_sceptic:

You know that there is land under the sea, right? And ships have a part that is below the water surface.

Is it time for my paint skillz again?

And this is why Ocean is clearly the best map in the game.

Not really related since I haven't played any CBs, but do you know what'd be nice? If clans could hire mercenaries for CBs from other clans without them having to leave their own clans. Hell I'd join for some of those battles, since my own clan doesn't have enough active unicums.

Not just a feeling, you can get bonafide stuck to islands. And I don't mean stuck as in you parked yourself in a way you can't get out, but stuck as in your ship will utterly refuse to move ... just the tip of your bow is touching the island but no matter what you do, the ship won't reverse back out again.

 

Very frustrating when that happens because unless you have a divisionmate with you in the vicinity you can ask to ram and dislodge you, you might end up stuck there for the rest of the match.

I'll bite...

 

You're wrong :cap_cool:

 

But you're right, I've managed to get myself stuck a few times on different maps and then it takes minutes to get out. It's usually when I end up parallel to an island.

some islands hampering Des Moines (X) radar-cruiser (hiding/waiting/luring/hugging isle's to trap innocent virtually harmless enemy dd's!) ya say??? great to hear that! dont change anything(!), leave it be! i like it! gives me a kind of 'cheerful feeling' atm to hear that:cap_like:

 

(n.b.: maybe i am not fully objective here, but come on guys: i am mainly a dd-player...:cap_look:--->:cap_cool:--->:cap_rambo:--> and....:cap_popcorn:

The reason is the shallow water around the islands, which is realistic. 

 

Islands would have to have unnaturally sharp edges to prevent this, which might look silly. For gameplay reasons it would be better though.

Not often, but I did manage to glue my King George to an island that the game just refused to let me back away from.

hmmm...opens 'new extra possibilies' for destroyers, yeah! (...anything you unveil at forums can an may be used against you in future battles(!)..realize that, lol):

 

so...from now on it will be kind of this (extra strike possibility for dd's)...picture this situation:

 

....:cap_look:hmmm...an enemy Des Moines (X)....hmm...it seems to be far to close to the island!... ( obviously due to his own cowardness, lol)....:cap_look:...hmm....seems possible that su%%%r is stuck to the island, yeah...90% sure...great:cap_rambo:-----> guys bring out the 13.5 kms range heavy torps of the Yueyang (X)..we have a 100% guaranteed hit-chance on that sh** radar-cruiser:cap_win:---> yes(!!) 5x torp hits on Des Moines!...SUNK IT!...great!----> guys NOW GO FOR IT(!) ..CAP IS OURS NOW!!

 

(..so I must tank OP for this important info! ths! lol)

Nice, anyway what if some islands are more shallow than others, meaning the land underneath the water close proximity to the island is less deep. 

I think it would be really cool, however I don't think it would work perfectly in practice and let's face it the game still have some other issues that need attending :cap_yes:

Pretty sure that's already a thing. There are islands which you can scrape against with your hull without getting stuck, and there are islands to whom you can't even get that close (I mean, visually looks like you could fit another ship between you and that island) :cap_yes:

Don't drink and drive? :Smile-_tongue:

This is good advice. I have noticed that two beers will have about the same effect on my in-game driving skills as they would have if I tried to captain an IRL ship.

But if you use that example then it is strange that a ship that got stuck like that on an island can still sink and submerge 100% when the HP reach 0...... :cap_wander:
