There aren't other types of mission like escort or interceptation?

Well no, do your assigned patrol then go hunting, that is what subs are all about!

Who knows yoy maybe stumble across a Carrier taskforce or a fishing boat!!!

Interception of what? Convoys? I beleive that this has been reported by players as existing- BdU sends orders to go here or there are intercept. It just seems very infrequent.

Escort of what, though? U-boats were offensive in spirit and design, not defensive protection as the norm

In the Norwegian Campaign, the uboats had a quasi-escort roll, but not what you think of when you think of destroyers and what not.

How about:

Go to AG16 and intercept a group of merchants, later go to AG68 and join another U-Boat to destroy two cruisers located nearby this zone.

Is it better to stay in the asigned area, or go looking in a fat place? Some of the assignments are hopeless.

That would be fun, but not really realistic.

Your assignment is not to patrol the grid for 24 hours and come home

Your assignment is to start your patrol by searching that area for 24 hours.

Then...go where you like. They can't send you to the Russian fronmt http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

And if they did then it's time to fire up FB and get into my G-2 for some LaGG busting. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

But seriously, there is a Q & A somewhere where the devs said they plan to include some variety of missions in the future like pilot rescue, mine laying, photo recon, etc.

Speaking of patrol missions, I got a mission last night that I was to go patrol grid CG32, problem was, its northern spain and land locked. Was my third patrol in 1940 with the 7th Flotilla, has anybody else had the this happen before?

If it's true will be fantastic.

Probably sh4 i think, yust like wolfpacks and all the other things people are complaing about. Expect nothing more then a few bug fixes.
