First of all, I have Dud torpedoes -setting turned on, so I expect some duds.. BUT! My problem is:
When I literally cripple for example a coastal merchant ship, so that it doesn't move and it's caught on fire, I stay for hours in the same spot (on surface) and the darn thing won't sink. Neither do I get any report that the ship would have been destroyed. So then in frustration I try to shoot yet another one torpedo to it and Behold!! I wasted a whole 4 torpedos on that one ship, and none of them exploded.
And it has happened twice. The most recent I shot a C2 cargo ship, so that two torpedoes hit it in the aft and it still kept moving on though it was leaning on it's right side. It was making evasive maneuvers so I had to go to it's side and when I shot the other torpedos (three of them) they didn't explode.
In both cases (Where I wasted the torpedos) I was about 400m away from the ships, so that I could see from the deck that those torpedos went right to the side of the ship. So the wasting of those torpedos is really, I mean REALLY frustrating!
Anyone else having these problems? Or does someone know WHY these problems incur? I have the 1.2 patch.
Please, be so kind and take a little time to answer my problems. Thank You.
