Just had a 'find the attack subs before they break out into the Atlantic' mission, two Romeos. Holy shit.

They were completely invisible. They could see me though, as the odd torpedo came in. Fortunately, very bad torpedoes, so easily dodged. I was at flank speed dodging torps with the active sonar on, figuring they can see me anyway and i might have a chance to see them.

In the end BOL shots were all I had - I beat them more by my torpedoes being awesome and theirs being terrible rather than any other consideration. Those SSKs really are bastards to find when they want to be in full sneak mode.

Romeos aren't even a modern submarine.

Fortunately they're slow as old people fucking. Therefore, homing torpedo food. :)

The developer was in a live stream this AM.

I asked him whether the enemy sub AI will get some improvements regarding aggressive counter-fire BOL shots.

He said that the next update (v1.05), which they're currently working on, will have AI improvements and crew voice-overs. 8-)



Judging by how many people have been watching the streams, and gushing about the game, they must be having good sales. I didn't expect so many younger folks, unfamiliar with post-war sub tech & tactics, to be into an RSR-style submarine game. But they're coming out of the woodwork in droves. :)

Bah, come get some WOW sucker. The kiddie pool is deep there. LOL

Got my Montana, awesome first game, then second game the shit team was on my side. Sucked ass.

Keep posting, looks decent enough, but not sold yet.

True... though if a Mk48 is coming your way that generally applies anyway.

By far the most dangerous thing in this game is your own torpedo. Having had a few lock on to me before in error - that is almost certain death / heavy damage!

You woulda thought the Alfas were the best given they can almost outrun a torpedo but they don't seem so hot. Wonder if we will get a chance to skipper an Alfa.

Can always do so with the mod.

Of course, running around in most of the Soviet subs of this era is like being blind. In the Alfa's case, it's like a race car with the windows all painted black. :lol:
