Question

I play mostly dd so rely on my detection rate a lot. I always check the enemy dd detection ratings at the start of the game so i can plan game. Recently i have noticed that enemy dd with more detection range than me, have been spotting me before i spot them.

EG. attached is recent battle pics ( i also have battle replay if required)

 

my fletcher, rated 95 (6km) was spotted by yogumo, rated 93 (6,3km) before i spotted him. We are both sailing into the cap.

The game did not display / spot the yugomo until 8 seconds later at a range of 4.9km !

 

The attached pics have the time taken eg 18:26 yugomo spots me, 18:18 yugomo ouline on map, 18:17 yugomo detected

 

Am i missing something? Are there some strange mechanics at work?

 

If anyone can explain it is appreciated,

Stop using the ratings!

The Yugumo is stealthier than the Fletcher (5,5 km fully boosted, look at tech tree). Always assume he spots you first. When you are lucky, he does not have CE on his captain.

according to the ratings shown on the battle load screen, I have a better detection rating than yugomo!

so on the battle load screen the enemy dd detect rating is not actually what the dd is rated at?

 

whats the point of that?

Ratings say nothing. They have nothing to do with ingame performance. Adding the fact that ratings can change during the loading process (naked ship, ship + modules, ship + modules + captain).

Yep. Looks like the new radar/hydro detection icon.
