... and it will have only taken them 9 patches to do it:

"Visibility system
According to numerous requests of players, the penalty to the visibility of the ship after firing, is now lifted 2 seconds after leaving the visibility of the enemy. Now the visibility system will work the same way as for a few updates before version 0.8.0."

YAY!!!

Finally. GJ WG.

I remember this epic shitstorm when they "fixed" it.

I remember also how they said something abut 8.3-8.4, but anyway, better late then never.

I must say I've lost the hope a while ago.

Well, i can't remember what it was like before that so playing without the 20sec delay is going to be werid.

Finally!

 

(hands up who else finds it low-key hilarious to compare how long this has taken, with the time the CV rework had from concept reveal to beta testing to live. just saying the quiet part out loud)

I was quite amusing, since you could shoot at an enemy, slip behind an island an get undeteced at an instant, allowing you to retreat if necessary.

Well, I had my hopes up that this would actually encourage more dynamic, open water battles...

If you have anything, that disrupts the LoS, you'll benefit from this.

It'll allow some ships to take a salvo and disappear, without having to fear that something will detect 10 seconds after you shot.

Mostly DDs will benefit from this.

I play on DD's a lot these days. True, this will help DD's cause as it is, I get fired at for about 10 to 15 seconds even after the detection radius has returned to normal.

Look at it like this: This might encourage more DD to actually use their guns without instantly using smoke aswell.

You must be very good. In 20 secs I lose at least half of my HP's.

Atm the system is like this:

 

You shoot and are spotted doing so. This is the gun bloom. Now every ship within your shooting range and LoS will spot you.

Now a counter will start at 20 seconds. If you do not shoot within these 20 seconds, the bloom wears off and you fall back to your regular detection.

Even if you break LoS (with smoke/islands), if an enemy get LoS on you within the 20, you will be respotted.

 

Thsi change now will decrease the bloom time, if no LoS with the enemy exists. So now you don't have to wait for 20s behind an island before moving out again, just for 2s.

TY - makes sense. 

If only cruisers and battleships classed as LOS blockers.....   ¬_¬

if you came out from behind that Island before 20 secs up you get spotted again, the change will be sail behind island and after 3 seconds you come out from behind the island and you are invisible again :-), simples
