Best1: Nice (naval) fights

Best2: We won.

Best3: Submarine action, though impossible to sink the enemy battleship without help.

Best4: Good coordination between our naval forces and air force...Mostly I just spotted the enemy from my submarine and before I could fire a torpedo the problem was solved by our team (mostly air planes).

Worst1: In the first round my game crashed and the computer required a restart, because of an annoying sound bug a few times. I could fix this problem, read below how I did it.

Worst2: 1-2 more rounds would have been nice.

Funniest1: All alone with all the enemy ships in round 2 (I think)....still you didn't sink me in my submarine.

Funniest2: I recorded some good looking stuff, I think. Stay tuned- I will upload it!

Funniest3: 1 or 2 times the enemy PT boat was right in front of my submarine and killed itself or something? The first time I didn't even notice you, until you killed yourself.

Other: I had this bug that my game crashed to desktop and the sound kept lagging/replaying. I had to restart the computer. This happened before to my on another server, while being in a naval vessel. This was only during the first round. How I fixed it: I changed the audio options from high to medium. After this I could play normally and also recording the battle worked again. I also reduced recording quality, but only a bit.

Best: The 1st round was by far the most intense as we were able to turn the fight in our favor in the end.

Worst: Round flew fast after first 2.

Funniest: Surprising Elmo in tasimboko by rushing at him with a katana

Worst: Yamato ruined this nice looking map... Whoever put it there has no idea about this game... Had to quit after 1st round because of that... Didn't want to spend entire Friday evening at the spawn screen...

Worst2:
Pity that Yamato had better armor than our Battleship... After victorious fight aginst it I fired 6 torpedos towards it with success and it didnt even start burning... No repar ship was nearby... And it swam away to its main... What a joke...

Worst3: No pilots on our team... :/ I always wonder how it is possible, that on pubby gaming there''s always 5 guys waiting for 1 plane and when it comes to tournament nobody wants to fly...

I don't think the Yamato had better armor than the Allied battleship. I also fired at least 6 torpedoes on the American battleship and nothing happened. I made a test run during this week and the American battleship required 13 torpedoes to sink. That's very difficult for just the submarine during battle.

I think pilots would have helped Allied team a lot. Our Naval forces and air force played well together on this map, this was very effective.

Best: Firefights at Savo Island during Round 1. Nice stuff.
Best: Greying and almost capturing Tenaru by myself. Ended up killing 4 enemies single handedly.
Best: The skirmish at Savo Island vs. the LV-5 in the 3rd round.

Worst: Yamato, Battleships were way too dominate on the map.
Worst: AA guns on South Dakota, obscured visibility.

Funniest: Continually being shot out of landing craft, then responding in said landing craft. Thing was near immortal.

best1: amazingly skilled axis team. rough infantry fights decided the battle.
best2: would have liked to see at least 1 or 2 more japanese battleships to make it more a challenge.
best3: i think our bombers were clearly overpowered which made us nearly won the battle.
best4: can't even count how often we had successfully coordinated sneak attacks to surprise the enemy at their flags.
best5: always had enough time to spot the axis battleships until they showed some skilled HE performance.

good job, deserved win. you can be proud.

Talking about sneak attacks:

I will just leave it here:

Fortunately, I left after 1st round, otherwise I would feel like sucker now.

Best: Playing with ships again. I love them!

Worst: Loosing the Yamato because I forgot that in this game, going back is faster than turn the ship.

Funniest: WOLFXL flipping PTBoat colliding with Yamato.
Funniest2: Daniel Teamkilling Sir_Kowskoskey a lot of times.

Other: Kwiot, we realized about the possibilities to use radar over the entire island. That´s why we placed our battleship in front of Tenaru. This is called "tactic". Anyway, radar range will be reviewed for the future. Good to know that you quitted after first round: if everyone did same as you, battles would be extremely short.
And yes, radar was the key in this map.
By the way, good job to the Allied submarine: you seemed to us extremely dangerous! :salute:

In WW2 radar works fine versus ships and partly vs aircrafts but in no way against Infantry.
If Forgottenhonor wants to keep up history correctly the radar on ships has to be completly removed !

Worst: Allied can put your battleship at the other side of the map; for example south side called Tasimboko to provide same radar capabilities to their friendly infantry with low possibility of seeing serious naval fight... But they didn't.

Best: In this map, allied have option to do above tactics, but somehow they didn't. (lol)
Note: In philippines we have to fight against enemy invincible fletcher and his early boarded repairman, however we didn't have that option at the begining and it was not fair. But we fight until the end, at 1st and 2nd philippines map even we sunk in every try and we didnt give up... Remember the US is sinking newly spawn JAP ships at base... I hope you are prouding of it too much...

Best: Team work, and tactics: Our aim is just keep our battleship alive to keep alive the radar always for friendly units by the support of subs, pt boats, support ship and aircrafts, not to make kills with her... Very well coordinated attacks and communication between air and sea!

Best: our team did detailed recon job to calculate how many torpodes or planes attacks or cannon attack needed to sink enemy naval assets including their Battleship. And we created adapatable tactics during game.

Best: Enemy submarine Alert! All hands on deck! Protecting Battleship all the time!

Best: Advance recon duty with submarine for seeing incoming treats which are far beyond radar range.

Worst: Expecting more naval fights and air fights.

Best: Fight for the Sujuk Emperor!

Best 1: Sniping and flying!
Best 2: The boys in the navy. Great job!
Best 3: Fellow pilots. 'Twas an honor indeed!
Best 4: That very close first round!

Worst 1: Was expecting a lot more usage of aircraft and ships by the enemy, but most of the time everything just stood there in the spawn.
Worst 2: Tanking. I knew the Japanese built bad tanks, but this is ridiculous.

Funniest: Dunno, really.

According to Papillon:
Yamato
ObjectTemplate.Ability.radarRadius 750

South Dakota
ObjectTemplate.Ability.radarRadius 150

And then what?! Face the hill side with the guns While the Yamato could shot into Tenaru and Hill 123 and Hill 8? What is it worth when you know where the infantry is when dozens of ship cannons target you.

1x Bomb Run Betty Bomber (8 Bombs) on South Dakota & 1x Bomb Run B26 Bomber (8 Bombs) on Yamato:

Some say Yamato is still somewhere in the space protecting planet earth

Make up your mind because that's the model of the real USS South Dakota. Very little i can say on ships, but they are very well made.
Btw is this the right place where to complain?

No my friend, you are wrong. This is not what Pap said: this is the change suggested to avoid radar from battleship to cover all the island.

Okay here comes the video proof. :)

I recorded most of the battle with my decent graphics and cut it into a video of only ~16 minutes containing the most exciting moments I experienced and recorded while being in the submarine.

Watch the video on Youtube below.
