HI,

Just got this game a couple of days ago, passed the naval academy and now I'm playing a career. I already in love this game though I already managed to destroy my ship. Lol, didn't bother asking the nav officer what the depth was before I dived http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Sank my first ship on my second patrol. Was a C2 Cargo ship. The **** thing was tough to sink though. I fired 2 torps into it and they both hit, but it still kept going!!!! I followed it for a bit in hopes that it would sink, but the **** thing stayed a float.... until I sank a third torpedo into it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif. First time is the sweetest. Hope they all don't take 3 torpedoes though cause my sub only carries 5 so it would help if ships died with less torpedoes.

Anyways LOVE the game, can't wait to comeback from work so I can sink some more ships.

yep, i'm the exact same as you!

this is my first sim game to be honest and i'm loving it! i've not sank any ships yet tho and i'm just heading out on my 3rd patrol!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

i've had a few sonar contacts but they're always long range and i just can't catch them in this slow *** uboat i've got!

still, leaving work now so the allies better watch out tonight!

I just got the game too. Still trying to sink all 5 ships in academy. Tough to do. I stay above water and chase'em down. Best I have is 4 sunk including the C2 ship. Ran out of torpepoes to sink to stationary one though. Sucks. Still scored excelent but I want better. k2pyq3z@yahoo.com

You could always upgrade your U-Boat, of course! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The C2 cargo ships are notoriously difficult to sink. It is possible to get them with a single torpedo, placed just in front of the bridge, where the fuel bunker is, but this is very difficult to do.

The C3 cargo ship is easier, and the tankers are easier again. Usually a single torpedo amidships will take out a tanker in a spectacular explosion.

The smaller vessels (Coastal Merchants and Small Freighters) will usually go with a single torpedo - assuming that it hits roughly amidship.

So keep at it.

Welcome to the game, and welcome to our community!

Exactly the same here dude! Am on my first patrol and an English C2 was my 1st too, and I needed 3 torps too, allthough one was a dud. But then again, I needed an additional 4-5 HE shells to bring her down.
You're right, the first one is the sweetest. Allthough I can't really tell, I just sunk one yet.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

welcome.. I have been playing since June and still loving it..

Ran across a battleship yesterday and was in prime place to engage her.. but only two torps left. Both hit home but she kept moving at 12 knots!

Sad.. almost sank a BB!
