How to enable "dazzle"???

Hi im just starting to spent the coming hours on how to fix these perks again...and test them about my numerous crews

 

 

But when I chose "dazzle" on a DD after I went into a Coop to see how it worked; nothing happened!

 

Is it a passive perk?? What can be read on the perk menu is "Can be activated"

 

So....how can I activate this?? There is no corresponding consumable to activate like quick reload.

 

And when / how can I see these 15 secs are done?? There is no indication on my screen that this perk is active after I was spotted.

 

So whats happening here?

it only works for 15 seconds immediately after being spotted, basically making you harder to hit (but not immune)

so for example, you are sitting in smoke trying to cap, when you are detected by radar, the detection should activate your "dazzle" skill. You will not see an on screen notification.

When you are fired on for 15 seconds, the shell pattern (dispersion) will be 20% looser (wonkier) than normal, giving you more chances of escaping unharmed.

I understand but...

 

The confusing issue however here is; that the skill can be "activated"  or must be activated. (as you can see on the picture).   So I dont have to "activate" nothing in fact this is a passive skill.

And the word "can' is also confusing because it indicates that it also maybe could not.

 

But it would be good if....like a smoke screen activated; there would be a counter to witness this so called "activation" Because now I cannot controll that this perk has been activated

I agree, the descriptions are badly done. It is not an "active" skill, but a "situational" skill. @Sehales a minor but probably helpful suggestion, and an easy dev edit for the captain skill descriptions.

Welcome to WGs wonderful UI where everything you need to know is either hidden or simply displayed wrong.

 

Also God help if you start actually testing stuff, because your results will regularly contradict whatever the UI tells you.

 

 

Tried the skill and I have no idea

- if it affects shots fired for the first 15s or only shots landing for the first 15s (rather big difference)

- if it refreshes after going unspotted  (island, smoke-puff or between plane spotting)

- if so, for how long one needs to be unspotted

- if it even works or when (no GUI icon)

Agree, icon showing this and other situational skills are active would be nice, so you actually know it's doing something.
Expect it in a mod though, like smoke timer, I can't for the life of me understand why that isn't in the base game.

Isn't it obvious by now? They don't give a s**t. The current proof is this barf of a Cpt skill rework.

As I already said, if they'd tell us if a skill is active or not, most players would quickly realize that quite a lot of them don't work as the description implies either because the description is wrong (or at least incomplete) or because the skills are bugged. WG doesn't want us to know and let's be real, most players wouldn't understand how the new skills work even if the description was accurate.

He He He.... Dazzle on the Paolo Emilio!!!!

Less than 6 minutes of battle time.

Smoke is also now 44.3s due to the new commander skills.

New skills seem to work well with this ship.

Do you use 'swift in silence'?

 

Supposedly that skill makes the Emilio outrun it's smoke and become detected.

I don't but actually it also looks like a good skill for this ship. 

Unless, of course, you are right and it makes it too fast.

I am unsure as I do not own the ship but it is on my 'to get' list, any chance you are willing to test it whilst you have free respec?

 

 

There is a thread about it somewhere will find it and link.

I am pretty sure it is calculated when the shots are fired because that is when is determined where they will land. Ergo any shots fired within those 15 seconds will have worse dispersion, regardless that they land only after 25 seconds.

Yea, I saw one Yolo Emilio yesterday, playing around with that. Much too confident. He tried his one trick pony on my Ägir. Rumors has it, he is still counting his teeth :cap_look:

Can you test this? With the free resetting right now, you can do it in 5 mins in a coop game. That would be interesting to know.

I have only tried Dazzle on my shima thus far but it does help a little bit for those accidental moments of being spotted when you get over confident and bump into an enemy DD. 
 

I am not sure but I think it is also effective when spotted by a CV either that or I was exceedingly lucky bumping into appallingly bad CV players.

Done. It works fine at 59.9 knots but at 60 knots you do out run your smoke. Your detection becomes 7.1 as soon as you reach 60.

I can from experience say that it works but it is not worth the 4 points

60 knot warships, indeed.  What fresh madness is this?

You are actually not activating the perk for yourself. You are measing with dispersion of your enemy. If anything, enemy should get some info too, since they're "dazzled".

 

Feel dazzled yet? :))

Lord Mountbatten says he’s ‘heard’ that Wargaming are going to fix it.

 

He also says Destroyers are the big winners of the commander skill rework. He desperately needs to play battleships less!

Ive seen some videos from other guys, the logic is astonishing at times

- BBs got nerfed because BBs got buffed
