I would like to share my career with you, it would be nice to compare our results.

Realism 89% (views turned on, all the rest is realist)

Career began in 9/1939. 1st Flotilla.

First Uboot type IIA 2 coastal patrols with it, 6300 tons sunk.

Second Uboot type VIIB, 6 patrols, 54,000 tons sunk (biggest ship was a T3 tanker)

Encountered one large convoy off british west coast.

Been damaged during 3 patrols (planes, french patrol ship (?? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ) and a british DD) one sailor badly wounded. Escaped the DD after 5 hours hidden at 50 meters silent running. Not depth charged.

Most of the patrols saw a fair weather, except near Scapa Flow and West of England (british weather sucks http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif even in June !!!)

Received a message from BDU about the possibility of friendly warships in my area.

I am in July,1940 now just changed my VIIB for C. I put the sawfish as my emblem (original huh? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif )

To sum up :

Sept 1939 - July 1940
type VIIC
61,230 tons

Today's Date: Novembre 27th 1939

On the high tonnage this come from a really lucky encounter in north atlantic between Island and scotland, I met a convoy by sunny weather and it was just escorted by one old V&W destroyer so after 1 torpedo in her butt (2 fired one missed) I surfaced and let the cargos met my old friend the 88mm deck gun. Nice trapball too bad i Had to finish them with torpedoes. That day i just said " Himmel Got I should have taken that extra 88mm ammo crate".

Started in Kiel with 7 Flotilla, Sept 1 1939.
Total patrols: 4
Tonnage sunk: 104,120
Crew losses: 0
Emblem: none yet
Date: 16 Feb 1940
Realism: 72% Using auto map update and targeting, everything else is off.

I've encountered 4 convoys on the routes into Liverpool, one in each patrol. The last one I couldn't engage, as visibility was so bad I couldn't see anything far enough out to shoot it with a torpedo. None have had calm enough seas to use the deck gun.

ahh, thanks for making this thread, I'm glad I saw it because I was just about to post something simlar.

The reason being, I just had a bloody amazing patrol! God, I love this game! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm 7th Flotilla 1939, so type VIIB. 92% realism (just allow externals for eye-candy and screenshots http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif).

First patrol the weather was awful, but I managed to sink just over 10,000 tons, which I was pretty happy about for my first patrol.

But I just finished my second patrol, to the same area (AM18). Came across a juicy convoy full of cargo ships and a few tankers. I shadowed it for about 10 hours, until it was nice and dark, and then approached from behind.

In the end I had sunk 11 ships for 58,316 tons! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif That includes two tankers (11,648 and 10,817 tons), the smallest vessel being a coastal merchant for 1993 tons.

oh my god, I am so happy! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

erm you sunk 11 ships in one mission with only externals turned on?

thats kinda amazing coz in 39/40 i have loaaaads of duds and a many merchants needing a multitude of torpedohits till they go down.

yea! I sunk eleven ships for 58,316 tons on 92%! I still can't believe it! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think I got lucky with my torpedos, only about 4 or 5 of them were duds (yea, normally I get more than that), and I used my deck gun on a couple or three ships. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Also, my aiming was absolutely spot on, every single one of the torpedos went on a collision course with the targets. Again, this is probably alot of luck, lol http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif but I dont mind! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Started: I Flotilla 9/3/1939

Patrols: 10

Tonnage: 78428


Emblem: The Bull

Total crew losses: 0

Today's Date: Januar 11, 1941

Realism: 100%

Damaged once when I was rammed by a destroyer. I lost my AA guns. The destroyer lost its life. Also damaged during a running gun battle with another destroyer. Have yet to be depth-charged. Have yet to encounter convoy. Died once when my computer froze on 1028x compression and my u-boot hit the Dover cliffs. Don't really count that one.

It's early for me yet (4-5 patrols), but I am very happy (Oh "happy days")
Used a Type IIa, then IId, and now, a Type VII, and it is making a huge difference (range and guns)

I have noticed torps give a lot of variety of results, sometimes, 4-5 torpedos do almost no damage (second patrol, a C2 took my 5 torps on the IIa, but didn't sink...) but the next patrol, I met two C2s and both sunk on 1st torp (even if I launched 3 in a row...:-P) and both ships exploded on impact! (very impresive, although a bit unrealistic?)

I want to get a nice Type IX, for a change (never used it on SH2). I need a time compression machine (to make my 2 hours play last like 2 days).... anyone has a x32 (slower) compressions to spare?
