  • Hedge Hogs in Blitz

To the Devs, mods, whom ever,

The use of hedge hogs in blitz should be banned, or made unavailable. The primary purpose
for this weapon system is anti submarine, and since subs can not partake in the blitz, it
makes this weapon a pointless "I win" button due to its unfathomable amount of damage vs
surface ships of the Battlecruiser class and below.

People are ruining the enjoyment of the blitz game by outfitting speedy little ships doing
70+ knots with nothing but HH. Since they then are able to dodge most of the lowbie
scatter shots and deliver one shot kills with a ton of hedge hogs it makes them nye
invulnerable.

To top it off they don't even need a direct hit to kill, the underwater explosions do the
damage they need so its like getting two shots with one shell.

The easiest fix for this is to remove the ability to enter blitz with the launchers on
your ship. Its a quick and easy and logical fix.

Regards,

actually i prefer bigger map when i PHH, that way players are more spread out and few
players are shooting at me close range in masses.

sometimes you find the lone BB om nom nom nom

i told them years ago about HH in blitz

-they should be on ff/dd/cl only (sonar bearing ships) (no kita too)

-only be placed on T slots

-surface HH damage to be reduced (stronger and more damage than all lower guns)

@ Falcon - Size of the map doesn't matter. The person that is doing this is making 60+
knots. He comes into range, CLs and CAs get off one salvo, possibly two (bad ones at that
due to the speed he's traveling) Then they are sunk. He's already moving back out of range
as soon as the HH are in flight. It doesn't help that he's using auto, so the people in
blitz who are actually trying to learn manual haven't a prayer.

You know, I read all the time the old timers bitching oh shared xp... blah blah and PBB we
earned it the hard way blah blah.... well, how the hell do we expect the new people to
ever get a chance to get up to any sort of skill level with this crap going on???

We've all played hobbit map and we've all used or been used by PHH. Sometimes we have
complaints. This behavior is simply outrageous because one person is effecting the game
play of 32 others at once. Its simply going to chase new people out of the game, thats the
last thing we need! Of course you get the SS drivers we complain about PHH and no one
cares... the reason no one cares is because you are driving an SS that can cause MASSIVE
amounts of damage! You can sink large ships with a salvo, so its only fair that they can
do the same. Grab a DD crew or CL crew and go into blitz and face this crap. You'll see
that it isn't like your SS. You can't hit your enemy and he one shots you. ZERO balance.

Yes they have a long reload, but that can be negated in 2 ways, as done by the people
abusing the system.

One, have a super fast ship 70 + knots.

Two fill both R and T slots of said ship with HH.

The fast speed of that ship allows for them to dart in, one shot a CA, use the T slots to
then one shot a CL, and get back out of the fight before the blitz scatter shots can kill
them.

Stay back behind friendly lines until reloaded and dart back in to kill another two ships.

the downside, of course, being that (depending on the type of HH being used), you've
got 30 or 60 seconds of such said ship being a helpless target to get plastered on by
everybody nearby.

"correct me if im wrong, but isnt the high damage from HH and anti SS weaponry this high
because they tried to make subs balanced by merely increasing anti SS weaponry damage?"

No they did it a different way.

That's too much common sense for SDE to ever consider doing.

As you've last noticed from the catamaran Yamato they've come up with, SDE and
their devs don't play NF and are innoculated against any display of common sense.

if they fixed SS then they could reduce HH damage and wed all be happy.
