I enjoy this game very much. However, I find the destroyers much to "weak" in their AI. It is, imho, much to easy to stay undetected and to evade them. Many times i can run at periscope depth at 2/3 speed just right by them and they notice nothing. Often i can launch a steam torpedo from either side of a convoy and the destroyers don't even bother to look at the right side of the convoy. Many times they just stay in their position although some of the ships are torpedoed and blow up. I find this hard to swallow. I would really like to see the destroyers AI beefed up, alot.

I run the game with everything ON except the eventcamera with patch 1.2 and Jace11 and Nicos campaign spawn fix (more destroyers).

What do you think?

Very, very, wierd.

It's like our games play differently.

If I am remotely close to a destroyer and moving at anything faster than ahead slow and rigged for silent running, they pretty much always find me. And if I torpedo a boat, at least one of the escorts will come looking..guaranteed. Often they can't find me even with pinging (usually because I'm close to the convoy so it's probably hard to vector in on a single sub at 12 m when many of the ships have a draft of 9 m), but they still search with the search lights.
