can we please put a minefield around the edge of the map.. your bow goes outside the line, you take an automatic "torpedo" strength hit

 

there you go, fixed.

 

so bored of people exploiting it

to the defence of most of the players, i will add i tend to see this rampant asshattery, and the smack talking, and dribbling abuse from the kiddies (well i hope they are, if theyre over 15 they need to re-assess their lives) in higher tiers..

 

1-2 is newbs, 3-6 is people having fun, 7+ is all "pro" players with YEARS more experience than everyone else

If by "tired out memes from years ago" you mean a picture I pulled from a Google Image search and then added literally my own feeling to in text form, then yes.

 

I do get involved, which you would know if you didn't start a new thread without looking for a current one on the subject. I'm not going to copy my replies across several separate identical threads daily.

a minefield would be nice or something like if you are outside the border then a countdown starts for 10-15sec and a text or voice tells you if you dont get back in your ship will go boooom! :izmena:

Are you mad? The red circles mean keep out. In fact you need to get as far away from them as possible because   sea monsters.

Cap points arent at the edge let them rot there. Otherwise it isnt a exploit if if were WG would do something about it live with it if it helps use it yourself nobody at WG gives a BEEEEEP about it. Some of teh super ueber high tir players used it to get to the point they are so can you and everyone else.

So it's not an exploit? How come? Basically the ship that gets to the border first and starts sliding has many advantages:

 

- He can keep moving at full speed in every direction and change coarse almost instantly pulling sharp turns being a very hard target

- The sliding ship can not be attacked with manual torp drops

- The part of the ship outside of the border is immune to torpedoes and shells, so by sliding you reduce your size

 

While having all those advantages your ship can still function normally. If people could slide across the map wherever they want it would not be an exploit, if a ship that is closer to the border than you can gain a huge advantage by steering into the border it's an exploit of a game mechanic and it should be fixed.

 

It's the border of a map, you should be aware where you're going or else you'll end up cornered, you should not have a chance to gain advantage if you just sail into it....

Simple solution: When you hit the border you get a warning, perhaps both text and voice (some people might actually end up there by mistake) and a timer starts for 10 seconds and after those 10 seconds your ship starts taking damage over time equal to fire.

The border should make a slight injury as an electrified fence.

at least make it act like a land mass, might look a bit stupid thudding to a stop but people are exploiting this.

Imo all "take damage" solutions are dubious as you may end up crossing border simply because your steering wheel got knocked out. I see 2 options:

1. Then you cross border autopilot forcefully takes over and steers you away, you cant disable it until it has cleared you from border

2. Make it like landmass

When a ship crosses the border a timer should start that is based on the repair time refresh of that particular ship. Once the timer completes its cycle damage should be taken that increases over time. This gives everyone time to get out if a mistake is made or the rudder is damaged as you cross the border. So 

  1. Cross border, timer starts (based on repair refresh).
  2. When timer completes, damage starts.
  3. 1 to 20 seconds over timer = 1% damage every 5 seconds
  4. 21 to 30 seconds over timer = 2% damage every 3 seconds
  5. 31 to 40 seconds over timer = 5% damage every 3 seconds
  6. If reentering border within 5 minutes timer is restarted but damage rates are doubled.

​Maybe a bit simplistic but should be workable.

Yes border humping is bad and i believe they will fix it, on the other hand i think they might also have other things to do so making 3 posts a day about it and all hold hands and agree isn't going to get it fixed. Have some patience.

It's still beta guys! be patient... This source (sorry, only in german) says "Die Kartenränder-Situation ist nicht ideal. Sie wird weiter untersucht." what means "The map border situation isn't ideal. It's under investigation"

Does an english translation of this whole page exist? google translate give me weird stuff like this. "There are no plans to make the game look better - for now - it is investing more work in the optimization of potato. " I mean i love potato and all but i m not sure what they are doing in wows :)
