Invisible Mines?

Post by uncajerf » Sun Feb 21, 2016 7:40 am

All,

I am in Tokyo Harbour (as USA), and I have had two destroyers randomly blow up and sink during the last few turns -- and I cannot see any reason this is happening. From 10 Str to 0, instantly! :shock: What am I missing? I see suicide PT boats, but they crash into me & do only 2-3 dmg; I see other minefields, which I am clearing. I have seen (though not here) Kamikaze fighters that do about the same dmg as the PT boats, but I see no reason for what's happening.

Can anyone fill me in? Is this some kind of 'invisible minefield' bug, or what? :?:

Thanx.

There are some Kaiten suicide subs, those are sinking the destroyers.

OIC! Can I do anything about them? I mean, are they detectable? I've started pinging, but I'm fending off PT boats, too.

That clarifies it, though -- thanx! :)

P.S. Did I miss that in the briefing?

Yeah, they're detectable but hard to totally kill. As many times as I've played that scenario, they usually manage to hit something, usually a destroyer. It may not get sunk if I've done some damage to the sub but get some significant damage done nonetheless. I try to use air to kill the suicide boats and ping as much as I can w/destroyers. Briefing wise, I don't remember anything about subs, but subs are supposed to be a SURPRISE!!! :shock:

Heh... I think I remember something about 'Kaiten' in the briefing, but not sure.

Thanx!
