No, but this change is. It is not some minor "fix". Its literally a change to a game mechanic that has been around since beta, and it will affect the gameplay of every single ship in the game, except possibly torpedoboats, but even in those, i find myself shooting just before exiting or entering the cover of an island etc.

 

This change has no place in the "minor fixes" category

Found this hidden in the "minor fixes" section of the 0.8.0 patchnotes:

  • Fixed an issue which immediately removed a detectability penalty applied to a ship after firing its main guns if the ship was not in the target's line of sight. In Update 0.8.0, the penalty will work for 20 seconds irrespective of whether the target enemy sees the firing ship or not.

 

Why has this been disguised as a minor "fix"? This is a massive meta-shifting change.

 

I do not understand either the reason for this change, or why its disguised as some small "fix".

 

A clarification please @Sub_Octavian @MrConway ?

That is not hidden. And we have full thread for that, including a clarification from WG.
