I play at 100% realism with the exception of the external camera sometimes (the graphics are just too pretty not to). The other point being that you can only go after large targets. I don't believe a Kaptain back then would have let that tramp steamer go on by in the name of saving a torpedo or two. Further more most of them probably would only fire one torpedo at a ship.
In the end its to each his own and SH3 is for all of us to enjoy however we wish. I personally don't see 100k as much of an accomplishment because you have to bend realism too much to get there. I felt a little bad the one time I exceeded 60K.
