So let BBs ride it for days, but DDs should die quickly if they hit it somehow?

Exploit it?

Personally I enjoy when my targets are confined to moving predictably in a single dimension at half power.

Please do this more.

It's nowhere near as big of an issue as it once was, it's not perfect but it's really not something worth putting effort into. As long as it's possible for someone whose DCP is on cooldown to lose their steering gear and unintentionally ride the border, ticking damage while in contact is a terrible idea. What we have now is good enough.

I haven't seen anyone do that for a very long time, let alone enough to be annoyed by it. Back in the day every player and their mum did it.

 

Not really a problem worth investing in these days.

Currently it's not possible to exploit it. It messes you up in various ways and yes, the behavior of the affected ship can throw somebody's aim too, but mostly it makes you a sitting duck. And it's very rare to really see someone on the line - rarer still to see someone on the line and NOT trying to get off it asap - usually indicating that someone is in a REALLY precarious position, as in: the very reason for hitting the border is usually because turning to avoid it means showing broadside and being deleted right away.

 

OP's whine that he can't hit an enemy stranded on the blue line is just pathetic.

OP has a point to some degree, just the other day I faced a Conq riding in and out of it. Really great if you can't hit half of a ship that for its "cruiser armor" really doesn't take a lot of full pens. Also great for a cv player, who cannot approach the target from one side due to map limitation. 

 

It should have very low priority, but why and how half of a ship can just sail to another map and be immune to damage is beyond me. Make ships hit the border, not cross it. You need to pay attention to islands as well, so grounding there is fair game imo.

 BB stands fro Bad Boys, right? 

 

I imagine every German BB player playing this whilst sniping with their secondary build, thinking they are cool AF.  :Smile_teethhappy:

I have to admit, that I do it quite often in my Yubari, when I'm kiting a BB or T5 cruiser at maximum range...  :Smile_hiding:

Exploiting it how? 

 

BB hits border, BB slows down to almost a stationary target, BB gets filled with HE and burned to a crisp.

 

A Cruiser hits the border, Cruiser gets his, now easy to hit citadel obliterated.

 

A DD hits the border, Destroyer loses his mobility, DD gets wrecked.

Go to Reddit/NA and post about this instead.

There the circle-jerk is alive and strong. You will get all the karma you need and be sure that anyone with other opinions are downvoted to oblivion.

 

Remind me to never use Reddit as anything but a news source.
