Hello, just on my 4th patrol and received a message about a convoy (my first one) slow ENE, it gets marked on my map. So saved the game just in case, plotted the convoy course and speed, plotted a quick intercept to get it at night. Started going there, stopped for a few quick hydrophone checks otw just in case, got there and nothing. Doubled back on the convoy route checking on the hydrophone every 30 min, nothing.

Hmm, so reloaded, got there even earlier, nothing. Doubled back, nothing. Reloaded, assumed it went E instead, nothing. Reloaded, assumed it went SE, nothing.

So WTH? it vanish or something? Can't find it. It was only a three hours intercept away so can't be moved that far off course. Are there dummy or incorrect sighting?

Thanks
T.

i was off the east coast of the americas one day and that happened to me repeatedly...just seemed that every convoy i attempted to intercept just didn't show up. now granted i'm not the worlds best at this game but i can normally plot an intercept... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

i agree, seems something afoot here... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

Hmm, ok thanks... will keep an eye on it, hopefully it doesn't happen again.

I once tracked down a ship at night in heavy fog with only 400m visability by using the hydrophone and LOTS of patience (won't ever try it again though) so I didn't think it was me missing something that big http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
