Came back from a long patrol in BF16(Jan1941) hit a convoy whilst there..........ummmmm lovely. Returned to base and was sent to BF15....got there and found C3 Cargo(stationary) 2 Small merchants(stationary) and a Clemson D at 1 knots. I destroyed them all with no effort at all. But what crossed my mind was why? Why were they just sitting there? There was no damage that was obvious.
To be quite honest, the Uboat war was something that i had never got involved with before buying this game(shame), and now i want to find out so much more. So why would they just sit there? refuelling? waiting? I mean is this historically correct? It would be great to have your input because from what i have read and seen you guys know your stuff.

Funny, one of my first ever posts on this forum was about the same thing! I don't think anyone actually knew the answer, but there were a few good suggestions - take a look:

Stationary targets? Why? (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/857101043/m/7021081223?r=4091061423)

I've not come across any stationary ships in the middle of the sea for a long, long time.

Just a thought - are you running the game 'out of the box' or have you patched it to 1.4b?

I have the 1.4 patch, wow that is sooooo weird that you have had a post about the same thing in pretty much the same area.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

On my life, a few careers ago I came across TWO smallish convoys one after the other (I forget the square now, and have since gone on to Grey Wolves) that were just sat there dead in the water. It was a piece of cake to despatch the escorts, and then the rest was childs play. It did, of course, enable me to make another 200k claim. Weird, just a bug perhaps, but my advice is if you come across it, exploit it!

I had met these 1 knots ships many times, almost once per 4 or 5 patrols. No mods, just 1.4b patch. I gues it is some kind of bug, and of course even that, I still wouldn't let them slip away http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

something happend similar happend to me a few hrs ago.
My sonarman detected a ship and I headed out that way. When i arrived i saw abounch of ships circling and 1 destroyer. It looked like something from the old west and they were circling the wagons. I didint see any damage on any of them, but some were stationary. I had to buck out of there tho becouse i was detected.
the only thing i could figure out was that maybe another ship ran into their route and broke it up... i duno a bug or something.

I'd better calm down, i think my imagination is running away with me http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
