  1. Tweaked the campaing files in cold waters to make it longer, playing in narwhal this time.

    This song is just stuck in my head and can't get rid of it...

    Anyway, one of the cons of campaing in cw is, that you just race from one mission to another without a break - you have multiple leaks and your boat could use some repairs? Low on torpedoes? No, no, no - another settlement needs your he... I mean - you have a new mission to accomplish. Bonus points if it's THE last mission.

    So, I'm doing missions for my admiral, wrecking red boats left and right, only 4 torpedoes and 4 harpoons left. New mission! Sink an invasion force. Damn. I get to a good ambush position and wait. I get ambushed by enemy subs.

    Fuck. Can't fight these guys, invasion forces are large and I might not have enough weapons if I engage those reds. So I fired a moss, turned the other way, went deep and fast until I could actually leave.

    I wait for a minute in the campaign screen, then my target walks right into me.

    Checked conditions, their bearing, ok, let's do this. 8 contacts on sonar. I have 8 weapons. If any one of them takes more than one weapon to sink- I'm screwed; if a wreck sucks up a weapon (happens veeeery often) - I'm screwed. But I did it. Dealt with the escorts and spent like 20 minutes with time compression on chasing down the transports (narwhal can do only 25kts).

    I think I made my admiral proud.

      For some reason every screenshot I see for the game reminds me more that it's a SH4 clone.

      From graphics, UI, TDC elements, even the medal thing here, looks just like SH4.

      @Haswell Idk about sh4, but I played sh2 and it kinda put me off. I just had to do every damn thing. Cold waters has in comparison much simplified controls and ui, BUT - the game mechanics and that it's very tactical makes it (for me) fun, I think that it's devs just hit the sweet spot between arcade and realism. Oh, and the fact that other vessels are not cheating in any way and are bound by the same mechanics as you? Great stuff. And those bastard can actually use some "dirty tricks" that you can.

      Like, I was  sneaking on one sub that just kept pinging on active sonar, fired my torp, then buggered off (because cool guys don't look at explosions). About 2 minutes later I had a soviet torp on my rear end, because there was another sub I didn't know about, and he just fired a snapshot at the location of my launch transient. Nearly got me there, if his weapon didn't go on active search I wouldn't even know I'm in some deep shit until I was hit.

      If you want more in-depth mechanics and a WW2 setting, get TMO for SH4.

      Tactical highlights include times where you simply cannot risk using your scope to sight the target and have to rely on sonar while staying below the thermal barrier, crashdiving and evasion after you make a loud noise and ships depthcharge you to hell and back and the satisfaction of hearing your target assplode while doing all of the above.

      Oh, you can tag along a friendly surface task force to lure enemy ships over for glorious explosions too. Nothing like shit exploding above and below at the same time.

  2. Started another '84 cold waters campaign, skipjacking like a boss, new mission: sink submarine resupply ships, simple enough.

    Finally got some surface group. I really thought it was a wrong one (turned out it was a right one).

    Because of this motherfucker:

    Holy. Shit.

    Second torp sunk the poor bastard. I didn't think I'd run into this beast during campaign! :O

      must've been an expensive transport mission

      What game is this?

    4. orzel286

      orzel286

      @MAJEST1C Cold Waters. Available on steam. Jingles plays it, and makes an occasional video on it, I tried it as well, and... 40+ hours flew by. Very good game, sub controls feel arcade-ish, but combat is VERY tactical. Currently, content is quite limited, but producers are still working on this game and it has a very active modding scene. I highly recommend it.

      @SoliDeoGloria Hah, definately turned out that way! Finished the 1984 campaign with a skipjack today and got to sink another one of those beasts in one of the last encounters. Got a navy cross for that. :D

      I'll do my next playthrough in a permit class. Slower than los angeles and skipjack, so should be a bit more difficult.

       

      Oh, forgot about one more thing about cold waters: it is (for me, at least) very immersive, the moments when you're looking for a contact - which IS somewhere out there, but stays quiet - can be really tense. The music is just perfect, it really adds even more tension to these moments.

  3.  

    Finished watching, started another campaign in cold waters, my second mission was exactly the same.

     

    So, I lurked around a bit, no contacts on passive, nice. Reloaded tubes with tlams, waited for all tubes to be ready, fired INTO THE DAMN CIRCLE :P

    Almost immediately, 5 or 6 torps on my ass. Oh. Shit. Shitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshitshit. It got to the point where to avoid one I had to turn into another, luckily (after many failures) my depth mangament skills have upgraded, so dodged that one as well, though it might've scratched paint as it went above my boat. Once I got all of them behind me it was easy - just RUN AWAY AND FUCK THE CAVITATION. And knuckles are your friends. Best friends.

    When torps ran out of fuel, I relocated, sank asw that got close, relocated again, fired remaining tlams, fired moss as soon as it got loaded, ran the opposite direction. This mission took me like 2 hours or so... But muh boat was undamaged. :doge2:

  4. Stronk soviet torpedo evasion technique!

    Unfortunately, Ivan forgot to drop yet another noisemaker through the bottom, so my mk48 finally got him.

    :facepalm:

  5. Another super container in wows, saving it for 6.8, chance to get super downgrades will be lowered. :disco:

      TohtoriP

      Yea I got one supercontainer some weeks ago and opened it. Got some weird useless equipment. I wasn´t very happy.

    2. TohtoriP

      TohtoriP

      Got one, opened it up, at least got the DD speed boost thingy. Totally stupid that the last two I have got both have had the "super"equipment.

  6. Nose-dived into bottom, got hit by a torp, almost got rekt by my very own torp, proceeded to accomplish the mission by sinking enemy transport vessels with harpoons.

    Great game, a solid 9/10 for me.

      Its more like: players get killed and then win by watching AI battle each other. Seems quite stupid imo

      @Assassin7 That's how I actually won when I tried this - my team melted away and I just decided to sit behind an island as friendly bots spawned.Such skill, wow. :doge2:
