Or people just blindfire you, while you move predictive/in a straight line. Easy to keep hitting, even while being 'dark'.

What am I missing when I am not detected or located (at least so the game says) but I am still being accurately targeted. How is that possible?

There are a couple of common possibilities:

  • Long shell flight times: something at range can fire at you while you're spotted and the shells not arrive until after you went dark again.
  • Blind fire: sometimes players will lob shells into an area where they think you are (especially just after you went dark); sometimes they get lucky/guess correctly.
  • Shooting at tracers: similar to blind fire, only you're aiming at the source of gunfire when a target is firing (most often if someone is in smoke).

Also, don't forget dispersion etc. a BB, say, can fire into an area blind and the sheer random nature of at least some of their rounds may well hit you square on the head!

Thx for all the answers, unfortunately they don't solve the prolem. Here's what's happened to me at least twice. I am in a fast cruiser (Helena, Mogami, Myoko), I get focused, I turn and disengage. I break detection, but still get accurately targeted, and yes I keep swerving and turning. It's the same effect as being kept spotted by a DD, except then you KNOW you're being kept tracked. Sometimes it takes as many as 5 salvos before I am finally clear, like only then am I really no longer detected.

Measure the time that passes.

Aimed salvos can hit you around 16s after you went dark. Add another 2s for someone trying to get lucky.

Would you mind posting the replay ?

This would make it much easier to figure out what happens rather than having to just guess.

Next time it happens I will do that.
