The 100K Officers club for Captains' who have sunk over 100,000 tons in a single patrol!

The club was founded for the fun of the challange. To be listed here as one of the great Captains' of all time, post a screenshot of your sucessful log in this thread. Have fun :-)


(1) You need to sink over 100k in a single patrol
(2) It must be in campaign mode, not a single mission.
(3) You will need to post your log here to be added.

and dont forget to mention your realism settings

04-02-2005, 12:06 PM
we should have a solo 30000 ton club for 100%, no Weapons officer, no deck gun, and no help from the Watch or sonar officer on range.

Let see how many join that club!

I cant figure out if we need to do:

A. Lower deck gun effiency
B. Lower single ship encounters
C. Bump up Realism for using less Crew (say 110% or whatever).
D. Increase weather effects (which should degrade our Hydrophone abilities and lower vis.

What need to be done:

A. Increase sink times
B. Take away crews ability to reconize Target Destroyed.
C. have our sensors adjusted to what we can see hear/or the other way around (aka we cant see or hear until hey see or hear contacts)

I'm soooo close to the 100k club! I had a nice deck gun run followed by my first ever convoy. I'm up to 93,933 tons with one stern torpedo and 1/3 of my deck gun ammo left.

I still have to patrol my grid for 24 hours and then head home. Hopefully I'll be able to reach 100k!

I'd also like to ask what subs you guys are using during these? In my current patrol, I've sunk 99,650 tons, and am totally out of torpedoes on my VIIB, but I've still got about 25 rounds of HE and close to 40 rounds of AP for the deck gun left, and the weather has been good. I think I'm going to look for one more small ship.

04-07-2005, 08:58 PM
I'm using a VIIB. Good ol' U-51 is a **** fine ship and hasn't let me down yet.

I'm currently halfway to my second 100k patrol. 49,901 tons sunk with three AP shells and about 10 torpedos left. Grid AM northwest of Ireland is crawling with solo merchants and very small unescorted convoys. It's ridiculous...

04-07-2005, 09:05 PM

Mayhaps it should be called the EASY DEPTH CHARGE CLUB?

I racked up 29,000 tons in my first career level - BIG DEAL. SO what, in 3.1 trips I'll be 100 K? Since this game is TOO easy, you should make it a 1000 K Club.

This is about making 100k in one trip and not in 3.1. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I think 100000ton per mission is really difficult even at easy settings!
Im already on My 13th mission, with 49% realism and the most I got was 53000ton in a single mission.
So congrats!

04-08-2005, 07:58 AM
I just ran into a convoy in campaign, but since it was 1940 it was almost all small/coastal merchants and just one C2 cargo and a couple of small tankers. Racked up 77,000 tons using every scrap of every ammo type, including star shells and AA bullets. My normal is 60,000 per patrol, but hopefully once I get into it later in the war there'll be some meatier targets. Then I'll post my screenshots for all to see! My current realism is 77%, but I hope to up that a bit more by losing the weapons officer as I go, although currently my shooting isn't anywhere near as good as his.

04-08-2005, 08:21 AM
105420 tons, with my trusty VIIB:


76% realism (auto TDC, stabilized views and event cam).

Interesting. We haven't heard from Jet6 yet, but everyone else who scored this much was using a VIIB. I really expected it to be more of the IX class boats with their expanded torpedo loads to reach the figure.

Also in a VIIB my friend, 76% realism. But you definately need to deploy the deck gun to break the 100k mark, some die hards may not like that but if it's there, use it! (Weather Permitting)

Have not bee able to find any big convoys. Only have 120000 tons in my career after 12 patrols. Best was about 30000. Am in late 1940. Am second on the U-boats Aces list. I think its what makes the game more real is not allways having a great patrol. But thats just me...

Wait til 1941 and go hunting some of the big battleships in scapa flow, try to use as few trops as possible. Then hunt convoys to the north and west of Irland, you'll need good weather to deploy the deck gun. There are lone C3s' that make good targets too. Use the remainder of your torps on the larger merchants and you should be there.

Good luck!

Aack! He's back! I thought somebody got rid of him. Bummer, dude.

I agree that there should be a 30,000 club for us 100% realism folks. I nearly passed that in my last patrol (my first without my WEP) but not quite. Came upon a convoy in the worst conditions possible: midnight w/ 20 knt winds. That was tricky. Let's just say I learned the value of hitting ships in the stern so I could come back and sink them in them morning...it was virtually impossible to see a ship at 400m, let alone find the data for the TDC.

04-08-2005, 03:30 PM
Thanks for the info. I have been doing the 25 meter depth search on main shipping routes, just dont have much luck. Just love the hunt..... I will get my 100k ton tour before my career is over.

Your welcome.

Also, try 50 meters to hunt with the sonar, it works better.

Vary your searches form surface to 50 mtrs and have two good warrent officers with appropriate qualifications in the sonar/radio section.

A new personal best: 110,757 tons


04-09-2005, 07:28 AM
Hi guys,

Maybe we should start a social event for the club. How about an online game once a week for club members where we can have a good time and enjoy the hunt among fellow skilled captains.

I enjoy online games and especially coaching new players who may need some guidance to begin with. I also feel there is a demand on ocasions for a game with experiance captains only so we may enjoy a well oiled and planned hunt witout someone charging in on full throttle stirring up the destroyers and ruining our best weapon, STEALTH. This is the kind of game I feel we may enjoy as members ona wekly basis, it's no small feat to reach a 100k and anyone who does is a worthy commander in my opinon.

What say the members?

04-09-2005, 12:17 PM

As I was trying to reach my mission objective (patrol AM23).. I encountered and sunk six merchants and dodged 2 Class C Destroyers.. but cost me 8 fish as 2 farted on me.. DUDS.

Almost to AN23, I encountered an UNESCORTED convoy (although sonar reported a ship closing fast, long range, I assumed it to be a Destroyer).

I hit it from the North-North-East and submerged a BIT too late as U-50 found itself being run over by a small merchant in the convoy, reeking havoc on my flack gun and tower.

I aimed my first fish at a T3 and waited€¦ then surfaced.

The convoy was shocked at the explosion of the T3 and even more so when we surfaced right in their lap.. We manned the gun and I tell you it was a Turkey Shoot.

We ate the heart out of that convoy and not ONE Tanker in 4 was left afloat€¦ Nine ships total and we left the area only because all we had left to shoot was flack-gun ammo.

Eleven Merchants and four Tankers on this patrol for a total of 15 ships for a total of 105,655 tons€¦. Then made good our escape with a few €œbumps€ (first pic is our escape run).

Here is the proof you ask for and then some (the medal Kupemfrmfloppin was awarded.. LOTS of medals this trip and 3 promotions for my crew as well. I have a GREAT crew!). This is my highest score EVER!!!






04-09-2005, 12:19 PM
Congrats. And another type VII achieves the score. I still find it strange. Perhaps the type IX players aren't far enough along in the campaign for America to be in the war yet?

04-09-2005, 12:30 PM
Don't know.. but U-50 is still in 1940 (as you can see).

I think this convoy was in route to link-up with their (on-the-way) escourt(s).

The highest boat I can upgrade to is a VIIC and I have over 6k renown to spend... but nothing to use it on yet as I am keeping my crew. They are **** good!

Other than the quality of my crew (despite 5 being killed on mission 4), the thing that really made this score was..

1. The CHANCE encounter..
2. Escourts crappin' themselves to get to the convoy location... and to try to kill U-50.
3. Weather wind was 5 MS so I could man the gun and reload from external res. until we had nothing left to shoot at them with.

U-50 started by default in 1939 and upgraded boats until we had a VIIC.

Thank you for the congratulations!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

04-09-2005, 12:55 PM
Luck always plays a part in it. In theory, a type VII could sink up to 336,000 tons using nothing but its torpedoes. But to do that, you have to find nothing but 14 passenger liners, have no duds, and sink each with only one torpedo. That's just not going to happen. Even finding 14 tankers is outside the normal bounds of possibility. So, to reach that score, you've pretty much got to be able to use the deck gun. The mission I made it, I had a 2 week stretch where the sea was constantly calm, so I didn't have to expend more than one torpedo per target, and I sank several smaller ships with the deck gun alone. The IX boats, carrying 20 torpedoes, are in a better position to make it. And anyone who sinks 100,000 tons in a single patrol with a type II, well, I'd just have to http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gifhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif.

I'd like to first thank God for the great weather, my crew, and my wonderful sub. I let the crew do the deck gunning and went from there to have all hits with my torpedos. TG for T2/T3 because these C-2s eat torpedos all day long. I had a couple of close calls plus one destroyer that tried to be sneaky. I was ahead of the convoy and let the front destroyer pass by me and then brought up my periscope. It was a clear calm night with a full moon and I started setting up my shots(I fire at three different ships on my first run so I have to preset the magnetic depth and remember the tubes). I busy working away and making sure my angle is the best I can do when I notice the destroyer has circled around and is within 500m of me. I lower my periscope and pray he doesn't do an attack run because I'm at full stop. 45 seconds later he changes direction and allows me to take down a C2, T2, and T3. I will say that its pretty tuff to get to 100k without a passenger liner or major warship. You really need a perfect mission. Now on to '41 and I'm sure it will be harder. My officers and sonar men all have the German Cross so crew management is much better now. 70% realism. http://img150.exs.cx/img150/2369/killmap0ef.jpg http://img150.exs.cx/img150/4884/myawards6hj.jpg http://img150.exs.cx/img150/6999/page10qg.jpg http://img150.exs.cx/img150/4568/page27vh.jpg http://img150.exs.cx/img150/7562/page35xl.jpg http://img150.exs.cx/img150/2636/patrolsummary5jk.jpg

04-10-2005, 11:16 PM
hmm, I cant figure it out???

Is the game too easy or are you guys not on 100%. I'm half way through my 3rd patrol and have sunk Nine lone merchants (7 coastal, 2 small) for 20000 tons and I still have 75% of my deck gun ammo and more than half my torpedos (8) in a VIIC. ALL this in 7 days...this really is starting to stink of gammyness. I really think they should incorporate scalable shipping from Historic to buttloads(for a realism % hit of course http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif). That way everyone is happy.

04-11-2005, 01:13 AM
I got most of my deck gun kills south of Ireland but I let my crew do the shooting to add a little realism. My 100K mission was prior to '41. I quickly found out that cargo ships are armed in '41 when I made a close approach to a C2 and he opened fire. Are you chasing down BDU map updates? South of Ireland is full of single or 2 ships traveling together and make easy kills. When attacking convoys go for the tankers first and then hit maybe a C2. A full tanker should go up in one shot and that will save you torpedos. I get around 25-30k in horrible weather by submerging and chasing down ships. I play with map updates/Auto TDC on and don't reload saves if I screw up.

04-11-2005, 09:19 AM
The problem, Finch, is the opportunity contacts that come up on the map. The available shipping is historical already. The players are just having an easier time of finding it than Uboat commanders did during the war. I get the vast majority of my kills from chasing down the single map contacts that appear. Some people have tried modding the config files, but there's a problem with it. The game apparently has two categories: opportunity contacts and important contacts. For whatever reason, convoy reports are in the "Opportunity contact" category. So, if you mod the range down, you won't get convoy reports. Task forces show up in the "important contact" category, so they'll still show up. I think it's going to require the developers to change convoy reports to the other category, then you could reduce or eliminate those single contacts if you wanted to play more realisitically.

04-11-2005, 09:53 AM
I'm playing at 100% and 100k is about the maximum I can do realistically. I'm not going to wait around for months just to sink tankers.

Look at the fold-out map that came with your game. After your patrol is over head to a major shipping lane and wait. After a few days of single merchants I'll usually get sonar or word of a huge convoy heading my way. Then it's just a simple matter of waiting, reading the flag properly as the convoy passes over your head, and shooting. Proper deck gun usage also helps preserve ammo.

04-11-2005, 04:17 PM
I can buy that....but the other problem is the poorly escorted convoys...sure they had problems findin enough escorts.. but one for a 20 ship convoy??? that is looney! They you get to ride the deck gun all the way home! Sorry, that is not realistic by anymeans....

04-11-2005, 10:13 PM
In the early war, there weren't enough escorts to go around. In fact, in 1940 Roosevelt and Churchill signed an agreement. The US gave England 50 old destroyers in exchange for leasing land to the US for naval and air bases, in the British possessions in the western hemisphere (Jamaica, the Bahamas, Antigua, St. Lucia, etc). It was after a massive shipbuilding program in England, and the US entry into the war, that escorts became plentiful for the convoys.

You have a point. Some folks at Subsim.com made a "patch" to fix the escort problem. Apparently any boats newer than the lead boat in a convoy aren't spawning. This, of course, effects the amount of escort a convoy gets.

See here (http://www.subsim.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=32975) for more information and to test the fix, if you want.

04-12-2005, 08:20 AM
Ok, totally dumb question, how the hell do you take screenshots? And can I upload them directly to the board or do I have to host them?
I have 1 completed 100k log and have passed 100k in my current mission where I have been hanging around southern Spain in my shiny new IX, have 5 torps left and am totally out of deck and AA gun ammo. Incidentally it takes around 3 star shells and 750 rounds of AA gun ammo at point blank range to sink a Coastal Merchant http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Nice weather off Spain in October '41 apparently.

04-12-2005, 12:35 PM
do you people have this game set of 5% realism? jeez. over 100,000 tonnes in a single patrol? what did you come accross? an unguarded stationary convoy with a type XXI?

04-12-2005, 12:56 PM
Came close, had 84500 on last patrol. Hit a large convoy on the way north and another on the way south. Bad weather stoped the use of the deck gun and trailed the convoy till landfall and the weather would not break. I will get it yet.

04-12-2005, 01:31 PM
100k is easy with a vii uboat.

I got 45k tons on one convoy with 3 torpedoes.

passenger liner , t2 , t3. I couldnt sink the t2 with 1 torpedo(not sure why since all the other t2 tankers go up in flame with 1 torpedo everytime) and I couldnt use the deck gun with the 7m wind. I didnt want to waste a second torpedo so I waited 3 days for the weather to clear up so I could use the deck gun to sink the tanker.

Oh yea the convoy was moving at 6kts and the first run I made at it there were 13m winds. The waves were so high sometimes the top part of my sub was fully visible and sometimes the periscope was completely under water fully extended. Also the convoy was protected by 3 destroyers.

Most of the convoys I run into are unprotected I read there is a bug in the program hopefully it will be fixed in the next patch.

I am around 150k right now with 5 torpedoes and around 100 rounds in the deck gun left. I have it set too around 73 or 76 percent realism.

I still dont consider myself that good of a player yet since it feels more like quake with the point and shoot torpedo system. I think after I finish my first campaign I will learn to play at 100 percent realism.

I was very excited to see a passenger liner 24k tons is nice with only needing 1 torpedo to sink it. I was wondering if anyone else has seen one yet? I dont remember seeing any in the reports you guys posted.

Doesn't your renown plummet if you sink a neutral passenger liner?

04-12-2005, 01:58 PM
the passenger liner had a british flag and when I looked it was under the allied tonnage sank section.

early in my mission I did sink 2 american small tankers. I didnt know about the neutral thing so I avoid sinking the neutral ships now.

(1) You need to sink over 100k in a single patrol
(2) It must be in campaign mode, not a single mission.
(3) You will need to post your log here to be added.

I have gotten 80k + a few times but never quite gotten over the hump.This time out though I was nearly run
over by a task force moving south at 21 knots south-west of Ireland.

The task force included TWO Nelson class battleships being escorted by atleast 7 destroyers!
Not sure of the total number and types in the group due to the poor visibility.
(The weather was terrible and visibility was limited to no more than 1000 meters)

Got one Nelson Class battleship... took FIVE torpedoes to sink the beast. A very tense encounter with the limited
visability... like crossing a highway blind folded all the while waiting to get run over by a truck. (Got all 4 bow tubes
off and into the leading Nelson of the two... then franticly dodged the 2nd battleship while
hastily setting up tube 5 to "thankfully" finish the first one off before she disappeared into the mist) Got lucky!

Just did bump by the 100K mark. Anyway... here it is.

BTW, I splurged as a reward after the mission and moved to a Class IX-C Boat The U-183. History says: U-183
Built in Bremen and Commissioned in April 1942. (Good stuff!) Features an extra SEVEN torpedoes
(versus the VII-C) AND sports a heavy flack gun!

This was some kind of lucky patrol. Not only did I have 5 knot winds and clear weather for the whole trip, I ran into a C3 and a liner alone west of Brest. Then I found a large inbound convoy heading for the channel, and (even with the campaign fix) it was only escorted by a DD and two corvettes! I took a chance and torpedoed the DD and sunk the corvettes one at a time in surface action, dodging through the convoy. After that it was just a matter of when the ammo ran out. It didn't hurt that the C3's in the convoy were going down with single torpedos, because I had a couple duds in there. I like the early years. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Try setting your torps for about 6m impact for C2s and around 6.5m impact for c3s. Hit them right in the middle and they crack in half with one shot about 80% of the time.

How many were using the Uber Deck Gun to pad the results? I sunk over dozen C2 cargo with only five shots into the feul tank area.

I killed more ships with my deck gun than torpedos.

Look at Ruby above, 23 ships sunk with a VIIB Uboat only carries 14 torpedos. So 9 must have been sunk only with deck gun. plus it takes more than one topedo maybe to sink a BIG ship like a C3 or Passenger liner? Helped out by using the deck gun to finish them off I bet.

The deck gun is better than torpedos.

05-12-2005, 02:42 AM
I made mine in an IXC with no deck gun kills at all.

And C3s are actually easy to sink in one shot. I find them easier than C2s actually. And passenger liners can probably find a way to get in one shot too, if you can find that fuel bunker.

I almost forgot to take a picture and I have only saved my mission summary.
My score is 108 234 tons for 20 boats. I made it with a VIIC fully loaded.
Do you accept it?
By the way, my reality setting is 86%


05-12-2005, 04:31 PM
Well, 20 ships sunk and you are only carrying 14 torps in a VIIC.

So 6 ships are killed using ONLY the deck gun.

My problem is should ONLY TORPEDO kills (assisted by the deck gun only to finish them off) should be counted?

Torpedo only (gun to finish off) rule? Or Not?

Then you can only sink a MAX of 14 ships in a VIIC.

05-13-2005, 03:13 AM
Well, why could'nt it be possible to sink small cargos with the deck gun if the weather is ok.
I've seen some real pictures (on the net) showing subs attaking small merchant ships with their deck guns. So I guess that weapon was not only there to finish torpedoes job. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

05-13-2005, 05:50 AM
While it's possible to get 100k using 14 torpedos, if you leave duds on and don't save/reload all the time you could spend quite a long time at it. Seems to me it's just fine like it is. If someone wants and elite "no deck gun" award or something, that's fine, but I say, just let everyone have their fun.

05-13-2005, 08:48 AM
Got it right this time. Only 12 ships sunk, but 140k, the 2 Nelson's really did help. It was tricky though, after shooting them, i went to 50m, and with the free camera, i could see about 6 or 7 destroyers really, really close to me. They depth charged me for quite some time, but i was lucky to sneak off.

I still had some torpedo's left when i got back to base, but i didn't want to to **** it up...

Hi there.
I've achieved the over-100k tons limit in a single patrol, but before asking to get ranked here I'd like to understand what exactly the realism setting requirements are.

I don't want to piss off people that plays the game at 100% realism, so to avoid flames of any kind I urge to inform you that I play with auto TDC and map contacts update on. (it's a GAME, after all). I think my realism rating it's about 45% but I'm not sure, I should check it out.

So, it's ok for you if I post my stats?

thanks guys.

05-16-2005, 10:34 AM
Yes, post your tonage record. Just like you said "its just a game". I'm glad that there is somebody around this forum that realizes that.

Well, I got another one to post. My last good one was about 135 and the one I got now is a wopper. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I was able to intersept 2 task forces in one mission.

Just squeaked in after an ocean liner stumbled onto me while I was, luckily, in a good position. Now I'm sailing back to Lorient completely spent, but completely satisfied!

This was my 15th patrol, in March 1941, at 72% realism.

The 100K Officers club for Captains' who have sunk over 100,000 tons in a single patrol!

The club was founded for the fun of the challange. To be listed here as one of the great Captains' of all time, post a screenshot of your sucessful log in this thread. Have fun :-)


(1) You need to sink over 100k in a single patrol
(2) It must be in campaign mode, not a single mission.
(3) You will need to post your log here to be added.


Jet6R6 - 108,835 tons
Bane_V2 - 104,811 tons
Lovo_Kasistan - 110,523

Finally my turn!

En route to my patrol grid, I sink a small merchant, one C2, and two coastal merchants.

Spent 24 uneventful hours at all stop and then headed south. Received radio message about "Enemy Large Convoy".

Intercepted and lined up for an attack. A single V&W Destroyer was escorting. Sent two torpedoes at the tankers in the convoy (T2 and T3), both went down and the DD came looking for me. Aided by the chaos in the convoy, I managed to slip away and waited for the escort to rejoin the convoy. Then I surfaced and pursued the convoy from behind.

Excellent weather conditions, so I used the deck gun to take care of the smaller ships while sending one torpedo each after the C2's and finishing them off with the deck gun. The destroyer didn't seem to mind what I was doing. It kept a steady distance to the convoy, 3kms ahead, making sure the path was clear. Only when I shelled the ships in the convoy did it fire back, but it never came after me.

When I left the convoy, only the escort and four American Liberty ships remained. With 17 rounds of AP for the deck gun, and six torpedoes left, I set course for Scapa Flow. Later received message of the convoy I had decimated - it was now a "Neutral Small Convoy".

Submerged 20 kms west of Scapa Flow due to air patrols (squadrons of Swordfish!). Entered Scapa from the west and found the Illustrious. Put two torpedoes in the munitions storages and watched the carrier go down. Dealt with the Auxiliary Cruiser.. easy kill; single torpedo to bow ammunition bunker.

Dodged corvettes and destroyers on my way out - via the southern entrance. Two destroyers ran me over, hence the 58% hull integrity. Needless to say they didn't stay afloat for very long...

See this (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/857101043/m/2171024823) thread on the Scapa Flow Swordfish incident.

Once clear of Scapa Flow, slowly making my way back home to Kiel, looking for targets of opportunity. I still had some deck gun ammo and three torpedoes. Found a lone C2 NE of Hartlepool. Gave it a torpedo and finished it off with the deck gun. As the last of my 17 AP shells impacts, the ship explodes.

With two torpedoes left, I submerge and wait for another C2 to pass by. Find one a day later and put the remaining torpedoes in it. This is where I make my only mistake this patrol. I aim the second torpedo exactly where the first struck, and the C2 steams off, tilting and having taken on water, but still afloat.

A couple of days later, back at Kiel. Less than 10% of my diesel remains when I return and receive a wheelbarrow of medals and promotions.

AdmiralWilliams, what realism setting are you playing at? I am currently playing at 72% and only running a couple of graphic mods. In my first patrols I typically had tonnage numbers in the 50k - 60k. A few times I got up to the mid 80k mark. These were all in my original VIIB. The VIIB was a great boat but with the weather being usually stormy, I only had one or two patrols where I could make full use of it's abundant gun ammo. I would normally sink a couple of merchants with the guns, the weather would turn bad and I would exhaust my torpedo's and head back home with 50k, maybe 80k.

After the base change to France, I picked up a IXB. Although it has quite a bit less gun ammo, it has quite a few more torpedos. I have now completed 2 patrols with my new boat and both were over 100k in tonnage. Use up my gun ammo early on single merchants (I find it is generally calm when I leave port), proceed to my patrol area (do my duty), then go patrol a line from the center of Grid AL through the center of AM. I generally see at least 2-3 convoys before I am out of torp's or fuel.

Okay, I've now had a shot at this, and managed it rather nicely. 100k+ of merchants and 50k+ of kriegsschiffe in the same mission. Furthermore, it was with a Typ-VIIB, played at 100% realism with no reloads and "death is career-death".

Firstly, the image that counts...


And then, a montage of various bits of various logs, for those who are interested in the details.


And, for those who would like to know some of the background and a few tactics I learned on the way...

This is my third attempt at the Campaign, I've played one or two single missions, but not very seriously. I have a few mods, but only to improve the graphics, and nothing to make it easier. I play at 100% realism, only use "pause" when I need to leave the computer for a while (e.g. to answer the phone) and do not reaload in order to go back and try something again. However, this mission was rather long, so it was played over several evenings.

The first thing I did was to go to my favourite hunting grounds - scottish ports! I visited Firth of Forth (nothing), Scapa Flow (2 x Hilfskreuzer, 1 x Fugzeugtr¤ger) and Loch Ewe (nothing). The Hilfskreuzer are really easy; a single torpedo each and they sink for 13k tonnes. With capital ships, I aim for a gun turret (well, a tad in front, for stationary targets, as they usually start the engines when the see the incoming torpedo). The magazines are usually located under the turrets, and a magazine hit is usually all it takes. Aiming for the front turret of the two Hilfskreuzer and that was enough. For the Flugzeugtr¤ger I used two torpedoes, but I think one would have been enough if I had've known where the fuel/magazines are. But this was my first of such class of ship, so I played it safe.

My idea was to go for solely tankers thus getting a high tonnes-to-torpedoes ratio. On the way, I came across a C2 and C3, and as the weather was calm I surfaced to gun them down.

I found my first convoy and spotted a T2 tanker. I set myself up well ahead of the convoy and let them approach me, while I remained stationary at periscope depth. I fired a single torpedo, from Angle-on-bow of 90, at a range of about 800 metres, however, I must've had the speed incorrect as the torpedo hit slightly forward. There was much smoke and flames, but the tanker (and the convoy) sailed on. I dived as, via hydrophone, I'd head an escort bearing down on me, and stole away. I later surfaced and, at maximmum speed, raced ahead of the convoy to try it again. As I saw it coming in towards me, I noted that there was only one escort - a tiny little armed trawler. I guessed that it would be pointless trying to torpedo it, as it is so small. But as the weather was calm, I figured I could probably surface and outgun it, before it got me. This I did. However, there was one other escort that I hadn't noticed. A V&W Zerst¶rer. Dive. Hide. Sneak off. *sigh*

Six hours later, I was ahead of the convoy again, and this time, let loose with a spread of 4 torpedoes on the V&W. This was an overkill. I landed two hits and the ship exploded. The other two torpedoes missed. I then surfaced and finished off that T2 tanker (it was still going!) and then went on a killing spree until I ran out of deck-gun ammunition.

After that it was back to the standard tactic, of finding a convoy, and torpedoing just the tankers. However on the first attempt, my first torpedo prematurely detonated. I fired a second and that hit nicely. I then dived to avoid the escorts and lost that convoy. I waited for two more convoys to pass, and took out one tanker with each of my three remaining torpedoes, before sailing back to Kiel.

What I noted from all of this, was that tankers are easy. They are long, and they blow up easily. Hilfskreuzer are the same. I think the idea of sinking the escorts and then shooting up a convoy was not a good idea. It would have been better for me to just go for tankers in convoys using torpedoes, and save the deck gun ammunition for lone C3s and T2/T3s. My favourite ambush point is now AM51 (or so). It is on a major shipping lane, with a convoy every week or so. It is also reasonable distance from shore, to reduce the number of aircraft. And finally, it is deep, so I can dive down really deeply to get away from escorts.

Make a point of putting a fully-qualified crew in your torpedo room and Zentrale to ensure a minimum number of failed torpedoes. Open the torpedo doors well in advance of shooting. Fire from a stationary position. Fire at dusk/dawn, and use the G7a torpedoes on "Schnell" (fast) setting - not only does it give the enemy less time to react, it reduces the chance of a smaller ship getting in the way. When skirting about convoys, use all the navigation tools and work out where you need to be to make the right intercept at the right time. Only fire at an Angle-on-bow of 90 degrees and from a range of 800 +/- 200 metres (which is between the tankers neighbouring column and the one thereafter). Don't operate in poor weather. And, finally, if the shot isn't perfect, leave it. You can always move forward to ambush again, or simply wait for another convoy.

OK, excuse me for my text but i am not an english writer.
From March 42 i meet passenger liners in BE27,BE42,BD66,BD65,BD64,BD57,BD48,BD47,BC93,CB27, CB35,BE43,BE36,BD49,BD72,BF14,BC94,BB99,BE33,BE36, BE35,BE29,BE34,BE28,BD56,BD58.
It is possible to sink them with two torpedoes :
- the first is fired at 90? between 350 m and 420 m and torpedo's deep at 9 m (that stop the boat)
- after, always with an angle of bow of 90 and 350 m at 8 m deep aim the middle of the first lifeboat (an ammunition store explode and it is finished for the boat).
It is also possible with 33-35 105mm shells.

To an extent I feel I should be part of the club. But I have no 100k patrol, but I should have.

If you take a look at the stickied bug thread I suffered a bug in a patrol where I ended up with 87k and a T3 and C3 damaged. Those two lost torps would have done them in, effectively given me more than enough tonnage. Rats!
Well at least the problem fixed itself with a reload of the game (just too bad I found that out after I had finished the patrol).

Anyway, I have a hard time accepting that PL score. With pure PLs it seems you set out to only sink them and nothing else (but how can one be sure to find enough in time?). And I remember a post about the potential capability of tonnage, listed in PLs. This looks very much like it.

At long last, I have finilly made it.
Was on my 35th patrol(first in my new type IXB). The convoy was a thing of beauty, after having a few singles in route to patrol zone. Just happened to go north from my patrol zone to look for a convoy or Taskforce. Then I got a contact message about a convoy that I had accidently put myself in front of. How nice of the US and British to help me in this way. Worked on a few ships per pass through the convoy and made nummerious passes using the snorkle after getting away from escorts then surface and run ahead full to get ahead convoy and positioned for another pass through.

Finally had some good luck. I haven't patched yet (was on patrol) but the game must've gotten the message because I did a whole patrol and had good deck gun weather the entire time -- 5m/s wind max.

Patrol area was west of Scapa Flow, I got a bunch of gun kills on the way, a few in the patrol area, and one on the way back. Naturally I headed towards AM53 on the way back and found an unescorted convoy, 3m/s wind http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The convoy was acting strange, they were milling about like they'd been attacked, I think there might have been a 2 ship mini-convoy passing through them, a T2 and a C2, disrupting their course. Anyway I torpedoed a T3 and 2 T2s, then surfaced and ran amok with the deck gun, taking out all the small and coastal merchants I could find, along with the crippled T3. Somewhere in all the mayhem I got rammed by a C2, then a C-class DD showed up and depth-charged me while I was loading torpedoes. After a few close calls I blew ballast and nailed him as he crossed my bow at about 400m. After that I passed the remains of the convoy at flank speed and got into position again to make torpedo attacks on the last tanker and a couple more C2s, then surfaced and used up my deck gun ammo.

I was pleasantly surprised to be able to make 100K without cherry picking, I engaged everything I encountered.


06-23-2005, 10:00 AM

I made it!http://img43.echo.cx/img43/4453/battle0011rp.jpg

I did it by cynically not wasting my torps on anything smaller than a small tanker (and a River DE but that was just for the fun of it). The smaller ships were all gunned down. I was also very lucky not to waste many torps on the big ships either. Mostly one on each.

But wasn't I supposed to get some sort of medal or something?

This is one of my better patrols, Ive already broke the 100k mark several times but this one puts me as top dog so far.

Sorry, but Trydan has about 100 tons more than you. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

But I ask again, weren't you supposed to get a medal or somethign after hitting the 100k mark?
If not, then what are the other medals for? I have the normal ones.

06-24-2005, 05:50 PM
Finally sunk my 100k+ tonnage during a patrol.
Realism was on 56%.




06-24-2005, 06:39 PM
I'm having a real lucky streak -- I just got 121k on the next patrol after my first 100k patrol. Didn't even realize it until after I was done.

Well, technically it should only be 106k. The 2 neutral C3s I sank after they fired on me probably shouldn't count http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

06-24-2005, 08:32 PM
Im not going to go back to my saved game and fire my last torpedo over a measly 100 tons, I just got tired of floating around the ocean looking for targets, but if there are others out there that feel I should go and get 160k Ill be more than happy to do it since I did have one fish left.
Also I find it hard to believe people are having a hard time breaking 100k, Ive done it around 6 times already and only on the 11th patrol and I got 153k on my 9th. I only posted my recent score for something to do since some think its an accomplishment to break 100k. I only stay out that long to get my crew some decent medals to avoid the whole fatigue issue, if that wasnt a factor Id just shoot all my fish at anything moving and return to base.

06-24-2005, 09:21 PM
IF you are talking about personal medals and you dont think you got one, you most likely got an attachment to the knights cross like oakleaves swords or diamonds or any of them in Gold. My medal chest is filled so I stopped looking two patrols ago. Also if yours is filled as well then you most likely did not get anything since you already gotten them all.

06-26-2005, 03:47 PM
Not quite entrance into the 100K Club, but I was wondering if it's noteworthy to have just finished Patrol #4, and have to date sunk over 175,000 tons of enemy ships?

Patrol 3 was roughly 77,700 tons, Patrol 4 was 82,000...

Is this an accomplishment?

06-27-2005, 06:55 AM
Noteworthy yes but not quite at the 100k mark but that is still good tonnage. Im only on patrol 11 and broke the 100k mark 6 times, not really intended on doing it to get in the club but most of the time it just happened that way, its all in pick and choosing your targets and having the discipline to let a target go and not attack everything floating. Wont be long till you reach your first 100k mark so dont worry about it, as from what I seen of your tonnage scores, its going to happen!

06-28-2005, 11:23 AM
So Close! Fifth patrol in Jan/Feb 1940 and we scored 92,000 tons! Sadly we had to watch two burning C2s sail off at 2 knotts. Their bows were almost submerged and flames were ravaging their decks. We used one as a hat for two hours to avoid the four escots and swarm of aircraft. We were not far from Liverpool and help was certainly within the convoy's reach.

Eventually we were able to creep off and hide next to the stern of a T3 that was sticking up out of the sea and burning. It was some sight. Finally, with no torpedoes left and the deck gun and flak blown destroyed by depth charges we made our way home. Perhaps next time... Realism 56%

06-28-2005, 02:28 PM
Well Liverpool area is action bound from planes to water craft of all types, if you like action, thats the area to get it at, just hang around gilligans island and youll spend your fish or be swimming with them in no time. Try staying south of Liverpool outside of Ireland, lots of ships in that lane, some planes but nothing intolerable. I am also fond of the 6 grid area around BF 17, lots of c3 and tankers roll through there.

06-29-2005, 08:49 AM
Ok...warning...this is long, but I am proud!

Ok, so I finally bagged the 100k on a patrol without a restart. I did about 110000 on my third patrol (took out a Revenge), but I restarted the shooting of the Revenge a few times. This was a patrol without doing that. I am at 37% realism though (don€t have to worry about the fuel, and I like the free cam for pics.
Here is how it went down.
On April 10, 1940, I left Kiel for my patrol grid at AN31. I wanted to check out Scapa Flow for what I had heard was a possible carrier in the port. I snuck my way into SF on the evening of April 13. The port was very heavily guarded, and this gave me great hope that I would find my bounty. Little did I know how good my luck would be. Around 0230 I went to periscope depth under clear skies and glassy flat seas to find the prize that I was looking for about 600m of my starboard bow€¦the Illustrious was moored to the west of the docks! But that was not all that was there. There was also not one but 2 aux. Cruisers as well! I wanted to wait until there was a little light, so at 0538, I let out a four fish spread set to go off under the keel of the carrier (thank you for those that gave that suggestion€¦it pays off a number of times on this patrol). Three of the four go off€¦one in the fuel bunker, one under the bridge, and one at the engine room. She settles to the bottom. I slink off to the west to get in between the cruisers, which haven€t moved at all€¦apparently everyone is still asleep there. 2 V&W€s move in but have no idea where I am. I get in between the cruisers, and at 0640 I let off two bow torps towards the eastern cruiser, and one aft at the western cruiser aimed for the engine room. The hopes were that if the western one tried to run, it would hit the propeller. All three shots hit, including the propeller shot. Down goes the eastern cruiser as the second fish broke its back, and the propeller shot halts the western cruiser in its tracks. I make a 180 turn and finish off the other cruiser before making my escape from the 6 warships trying desperately to find me. In a humorous and almost deadly mistake, and V&W and a Hunt I almost ran into each other, and they had to take evasive action to avoid the collision. Unfortunately, the V&W€s course brought it almost on top of me€¦and when I say almost, I mean it steamed past my aft with a clearance of only about 10 meters!!! I guess the captain was too busy yelling at the helmsman and crapping himself to hear the sonar operator yelling about the contact close abroad!!!

Well, I thought my fun would end there, but it didn€t. I headed south to the port that is along the eastern side of England (I think it is England€¦I am geographically challenged). One the way I bag a coastal and a C3 for good measure. In the port I spot two juicy targets€¦a T2 and a C3. I work my way past the lone trawler that is on guard and shoot 4 fish at the T2. Only two go off, giving it a nice list, and making my presence known now€¦I am out of bow torps now, and come up with a great idea€¦.BATTLE SURFACE!! A V&W had moved in to help out, and I started to slink away when I remembered I had an aft fish loaded, and looky there€¦the V&W was about 400 meters away with 90 AOB. One fish under the keel and that takes care of him! I head toward the trawler and get within about 600 meters and surface. My deck gun makes quick work of him, and then I head back to the T2. Smoke on the horizon means there is another escort coming in to help (one I hadn€t seen before), but he is a long way off€¦I should be able to finish off the T2 first. I move in for the kill. And by move in, I mean I accidentally got inside the dock area. Just as I kill the tanker, the Hunt I arrives, and I try to evade him as well, when I get the call that the last fish is loaded in the tube. And just my luck, the Hunt is again 90 AOB with about 350 meters. Same set up, and I make my last fish count again. I am now free to take out the C3 and one of the coastals that was there, and I make my escape.

I am pretty close to 100k right now (and you are pretty sick of this post), so I use up the rest of my ammo to get to 100k, but not without some drama. I am about 2000k short when I spot a coastal. I have only 12 rounds of HE left. I hit with 11, and she is starting to list, but won€t go down. I open up the flack gun, and it finally goes down. And I have my 100k patrol!

Ok, enough I guess€¦but that is my glory story€¦thanks for reading!

Way back when 1.2 was the current version I made it to 97.4 ktons. I was really pissed because I had a 2 or 3 wasted torps.

But now I have done it! 109K http://www.mnsi.net/~mhumenny/sh31.JPG

When I was at 80 or so K I came on a C2 but I didn't have the torps so I resolved to use just one. I forgot to open the outer doors but I was leading a bit anyway trying to hit the front of the fuel bunker. Anyway the torp hit the back of the engine room and disabled him. ****! So I decided to wait for good weather. 1 hour 15 later he sank on his own!

Later on I was at 95K and all I had left was two aft torps. I came across another C2. So I set one to magnetic and 9M deep and the other to 3 and impact. The magnetic blew up early in rough seas. The impact hit the engine room. My plan was again to wait for the weather but the ships back broke right away! YES 101K

I came across my first Victory Cargo ever later on in good weather and destroyed him with my deck gun from long range. (started at 5.5 ended at 4) About an hour later(?) I was ambushed on the surface by a lone sunderland. The date was 1942 and I was in square BE6. My map shows that I should have been safe from air attack at that time and place. After a short AA battle followed by a crash dive I shook him off.

Passed by a larg convoy with troop ships and 3 or 4 t3's. Had to let it go. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Made it to Lorient with less then 10% fuel.

Edit: Forgot to mention. 66% difficulty.

I have external view, stabalize view, Weapons Off help, and auto targeting.

07-05-2005, 02:03 AM
Not once have I had a magnetic detonate early even in bad weather with rough seas and I have fired them from 1500m out. Anyways, good job now pass out those medals to your fine crew.

07-06-2005, 11:20 AM
Why thank you so very much.

I can't understand why you would never have a magnetic torp explode early. I can only assume you don't shoot too many of them or that you have your realism settings set for super torps.

Currently I am running on 100%. I moved up after my 100K run.

07-06-2005, 06:17 PM
My settings are at 77% and I use alot of magnetics, sometimes if at close range Ill sling off a fast impact but still at magnetic settings. I send my magnetics shallow regardless of what the ID manual states for its draft, volume etc. I have had alot of bounces and shoot unders to rely on that information, and after some testing I found magnetics set shallower than what the ID manual says, works just as well and still splits the ships in half. I keep it on magnetic when its actually going in and hitting on impact but if the ship speeds up or changes course right as or after I fire, then I still got a good chance of the fish detonating regardless. Plus at a shallower setting you arent just relying on splitting the keel and flooding, when its shallow you are at a better percentage of hitting directly or near enough to a bunker of fuel or ammo, the internal secondaries always aid in the destruction of the target in your periscope.
Some players disagree and prefer to do keel shots, if it works for them fine, but I prefer to double my chances and set my fish shallow and above what the ID manual states, usually by 3-4 meters above the ships draft.

Difficulty setting was something around 61% (was different at 1.0 times), is 58% now.

- Automatic Targeting (am too stupid for manual)
- Event Camera On (feels more immersed)
- Map contacts On (am no die-hard simulation freak, want to see my works results)
- Dud Torpedoes off (hate it, when they don't explode, I know - w*nker!) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
- Noise Meter On (just like/use it for maneuvering close to prey)
- with Weapon Officer

Don't remember much about this patrol. Only use magnetic impact. Heavy use of deck guns (incl. flaks against Coastal Merchants).

I find it amusing that the tikes are still trying to beat my 200k score. But what this kid failed to realize is I did this with a Type VII-B not at IX boat, and its also clearly stated in my signature banner, as cheap as it may be. The haters still lurk trying to bring the TOP DOG down but have failed embarrassingly with their slightly musing attempts at a clear cropping of a screenshot, considering the kills dont line up on the page, its impossible to get that many liners when everyone has seen no more than 4 or there abouts, and they spawn randomly.
A clear and poor attempt at trying to topple the best score in a Type B and apparantly this kid never read the thread, nor paid attention to my el cheapo banner that I did this with a type VII-B. So laugh it up, I am, the joke.....is on you. TOP DOG!!

3x >100K Tonnage in 3 consecutive patrols!

P1: 104.166
P2: 114.804
P3: 124.541

Only last friday I found that GyroBearing button in the TDC and figured out how to target these special zones on ships (took me some 30 patrols) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Guess what? That's the only way to go! It's a breeze to target the zones and use only 1 torp. per big ship.

That's when I decided to start a new career last weekend! Before I was wasting 2-3 torpedoes for 1 bigger target (with automatic targetting) and was happy with it.

I made 3 patrols in a row (before I ran out of weekend) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif, each with more than 100K tonnage with the VIIB fresh from the shipyard. It's the first 3 patrols in a career, all from base Kiel and amateurish crew. Can't wait to advance in the game. Must me lot's more tonnage possible from different based and qualified seamen.

You save your torpedo for larger targets only (tankers, C3, maybe C2) and make heavy use of your deckgun for the smaller ones (Coastal, Small Merchant, Tug Boats, Coastel Vessels whatever), which you can sink with max. 10 shots each.

Am thinking to skip shooting even at C2's and only go for bigger prey. More than 200K seems than easily possible even with a VIIB.

Attached the links to the screenshots below (just the patrol summary, can post the details as well, if someone is interested or in doubt).




58% Realism

- Automatic Targeting
- Event Camera On
- Map contacts On
- Dud Torpedoes off
- Noise Meter On
- Weapon Officer enabled

It was just 3 normal patrols off Kiel, but with finding at least 1 convoy each patrol in the canal or northwest of ireland. First patrol I waited on return via the north route 4-5 days for better weather in the north sea, because I couldn't use my deckgun a single time before (and I hate that) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Last patrol took me almost 7 hours realtime, because my PC slowed down and I had heavy lag when going over 8x Time Compression. But was to afraid to mess up with my file system, when not in base. Lost too much save games already due to load problems.

By the way, does anyone know a good FREE Undelete Program for NTFS, which doesn't do only 1 file per day, or only offers viewing but no restoring of files?

I wont be going for another high score until the XXI comes available to me then Ill again go for maximum tonnage, but until then, Im settling for 50-80k just for the medals for my crew. Prepare them early so when it all hits the fan, Ill have one sweet crew on my tub by 43-44. Two german cross in gold is all I need and my sub is locked.

Stinkhammer save yourself the embarrassment. If you€re referring to the €˜Patrol History€ date being October 18th and the finishing date being October 4th , you being the expert that you are will know that the date under €˜Patrol History€ is in fact the current date of game play which means that I didn€t take the screenshots right after I finished the patrol I repaired my boat and handed out the medals which obviously took a couple of days, see other peoples posts they have the same discrepancy. I have included another example below just for you!
I have a question for you though, does it really mean that much to you that you have to accuse people of being charlatans, if, and when they beat your score? Even if I did possess the ability to manufacture false results what makes you think I would spend my time trying to upstage you?

Okay it's me again. Finished my next 2 patrols (#4 and #5) and still coming over 100K every time, with the last one the most yield (236K).

P1: 104.166
P2: 114.804
P3: 124.541
P4: 148.090
P5: 236.515


Some comments. I followed Stinkhammers strategy, layed out in various other posts, that means, only go for big prey and do shoot these neutral passenger liners if available. (Got 3 of them here). You still manage to finish the patrol with positive renown (here 2.157,75)

On the 4th patrol I was actually on a pretty good run, but had to settle it with 5 torpedoes left, due to problems with my PC (corrupt save games again) and the inability to properly dock/exit the mission. So I lost some couple of hours of gameplay and around 50K tonnage with 3 torp left. The newer savegames were not loadable and continuing the patrol my PC always crashed. So I just settled with the last workable save game via ESC and Exit Patrol.


The last patrol (5th) was kinda boring, though I basically went to the knot of the 4 convoy routes and were just camping. You basically get a convoy every 2-3 days. Shot only the T2 and T3 and neutral only, if there was a passenger liner. In between I sank 2 C2 with deck gun, who came across while I was floating surfaced with zero speed waiting for the next convoy to spawn.

With the last torpedo (stern) I shot the V&W destroyer, who protected the 5th or so convoy. Mainly I went for the destroyer, because it was great weather (0 wind) and dark like hell, I wanted to give it a try with the deck gun, where I still had like 70% ammo left. So the DD went down with a torpedo, the other protecting Flower Corvette I sank with the Deck-Gun and finished of the 2 tankers and 2 C2 in the convoy with deck gun as well, until I ran out of Ammo. Just see the attached log details.

I will stop this strategy now, because the game gets then rather boring and predictable, except for the great tonnage (728.116 tonnage after the first 5 patrols). It's more lurking and dig in, than exploring and trying something new (what suits me more).

Find attached the screenshot links for the details:






If you are interested or in doubt, I can post more details.

1. I returned from a patrol yesterday, passed out the medals and swapped fish out of my sub. Went back and checked the logs, the dates matched, DOH!

2. If you did in fact find all of the ships in scapa flow, surely you would have taken screen shots as well as posted them, considering it would have been an entire atlantic fleet, but, you didnt.

3. Im not the only one who noticed the errors in dates on your part so its not just me, I just happened to notice it first. Notice how no one posted a thing after it was discovered? If I would have been wrong, someone else would have been quick to point it out, but, no one did, I was only agreed with.

4. I posted long ago I was finished going for high scores, its on a few threads where I mentioned it, and I also mentioned I dont care if anyone beat my score, considering I was the FIRST to do it and post it, it doesnt matter. Now everyone it seems has been trying to beat my score, and obviously at some very desperate attempts http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I followed Stinkhammers strategy, layed out in various other posts

See? My own strategy being used by another skilled player and he beat my original score to boot! Great job chris, it pays to have patience and the discipline to not fire at everything you see. And thanks for proving my point, it is possible to get these scores in these types of boats. Well, there are now two admirals in this club, anyone else care to join using the 'Killer B'? Chris took the challenge and came out on top, can anyone beat the new top dog? Again, good job chris, excellent work. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Didnt really agree with you stinkhammer. Took it for granted that there was something wrong with it as many before have played with their results just to get you angry. Felt a bit sorry for you after that post you did the other day, but i think your back to arrogence.

There is such a thing as a bad winner you know.

Chris, very well done mate.

Its ok fodder, I know what you mean but dont feel sorry for someone who owns a velvet lined commanders seat, chris now owns one as well. I see it like this, everyone who is a fan of lets say football, they have a favorite team, and if that team wins the superbowl, then you cant tell me the winner of that event will not be like ok, yeah we won, good game. Yeah right, they are going to dance around and what not. I did it when I first posted the 200k score of mine, and everyone freaked out, but superbowl champs can do it. Strong in comparison yes but its the only way to get you to understand there is a difference from being cockey for no reason and being that way for a big reason. I did it first and posted it, chris shortly after followed suit and did it and beat my score and he did a great job. If you dont see what Im getting at by now, then Ill always seem arrogant in your eyes and others as well. Bad winner? Because I flaunted a score no one was ever able to achieve? Although others struggle to make a mere 100k? So be it if thats what you or others think or see it as, but when you get to this level of intensity that chris and I have reached, then youll dance around as well. And if someone manages to accomplish a feat no one else has, then why complain about them, regardless if they seem arrogant, if you were in these shoes, you would do the same thing, if you say you wouldnt, you are a liar. Same thing with lottery winners saying they wont ever change. Yet they always do. See it how you will, I think you can be a decent guy if you want as well as I can, but as far as I see it, I dont care what others say or think. I did a good job, chris did a great job, we have a right to flaunt it, and if others dont like it, oh well.

For all you doubters out there......

07-15-2005, 02:13 PM
Again, you did it in a type IX, not a VII, and you were the one implying you beat my score with the same type but you didnt and still havent recognized that, tsk tsk, all you have done is perhaps stark a 250k group for the IX but something to think about, the new top dog chris, was only 20k under you in a type VII telling us your torp and deck gun skills arent the best, he could have toppled that mark if he had taken a tad bit more careful aim with his deck gun. Its ok, good job on starting (if you so desire) a 250k club for the IX series. Im just waiting for someone with an XXI to lay out 300k with all of those torpedos, now that will be a lot of medals for that hunt.

Strewth... thats a lot of ships... Crikey... now thats what i call luck, every time ive been in scapa its been empty... Well done mate!

I agree, Stinkman shut it! your becoming boring to us all.

Yeah Cannon I guess I got real lucky but coming from the Orkney Isles (Scapa Flow) myself historically it was quite possible to have such a fleet, and bigger anchored there. I have dived on many of the first world war German High Seas battleships, cruisers and u-boats that were scuttled there but you need special permission to dive on the Royal Oak and Vangard due to them being war graves.

07-16-2005, 06:55 AM
I guess things like this come easy to those with the 1.4 patch and other mods as well, I did mine with the 1.3 patch and NO mods of any sort. How the tables have turned to Chriss being the top dog and the latter.............

07-16-2005, 05:23 PM
Again, I dont recall this being a "100k in a type VII U-Boat Club" or a "100k using patch 1.3 Club". Stop stirring Stink, and just sit down and play, and try to beat Chrisss1972 and Ohms931 scores! Again, well done on the tonnage guys.

He did by implication, I just merely stated facts and errors on his part. Im not stirring just laughing at this. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I already said I retired from mass tonnage scores ages ago and will only pursue it when I get the XXI sub due to its massive stores of harpoons, but again, it seems no one reads the posts and only look for reasons or excuses to try and bother me or somehow think I care, but when one comes in out of the blue trying to intentionally start something with me, hey, dont poke a dog with a stick and think nothing will happen. Chris is the new top dog, I was merely the first to do it with a STOCK game. And thats all I was saying and have been saying. The whole score thing died out like two weeks ago but some kids in here seem to want to bring it back up, like beating my original score is supposed to offend me or something, hence, thats why Im still laughing at this kid and his attempts, considering he is the one that is stirring for no reason. Enough about that kid, who is the next contestant up to try and take down chris in a stock game?

Good job! I did notice you took out a destroyer, from experience its best to not take them out with a fish unless it wont leave you alone since that torpedo could have been used on something bigger. Just a tip but hey, good job and keep it up.

...just my 2 cents reg. all that quarrels on top dogs before.

In my opinion this forum should be there to help other gamers to improve and understand their favorite game better.

That was why I actually took up to get better tonnage, because I was running mediocre patrols usually in my 40K-60K (even after 20+). So I found that thread here and other threads and looked, what other people do different to get more tonnage and hence, it's a mix of improving your torpedo skills by using the gyroangle tool and going for the big prey.

By trying that out, I found that it's easier possible to make your mark in the tonnage department, although lot's of the games' fun was going missing (actually it's just like camping on the convoy knot and cherry-picking the bigger ships from the rest, so everyone can do it).

I recently changed my tactics back to discover and search and destroy what suits me and guess what? The tonnage went down again (although better than before) - but still you improve over time, get your promotions and qualifications and the games it more fun again. So, it's more a mix and the question - what works for you?

But hey, am still happy if I see a C2 and of course use a torpedo for it, without wiping a tear for the fish (okay, sometimes) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

That's the main point for me here. Don't want to waste hours and hours of my precious spare time for just hunting imaginery scores, where anyway someone will be better some day or the other.

So thanks here to Stinkhammer, CannonFodda, GT182 and all the others for adding to the experience!

Your right there mate, this forum is the most helpful one ive ever been on. Many people, stinkhammer especially, are willing to share their strategies and help those who need it, just ashame some people (myself included) get the wrong end of the stick so to speak when he says things.

Play the game as you want to play it. Try new things, have fun, thats what games are all about.

Well done again on the high score mate


07-19-2005, 04:45 AM
The patrol in reference to my score breaking 200k took me 9 days of stalking,planning, groaning and complaining, I had to pass on alot of ships because I got discovered and the convoy then was shifting out of my favor. I used up alot of free time making that score but found in the end it was worth it. My crew got serious medals and the quality of seamanship improved greatly when I passed them out.

Im glad to see some in here like Chriss used my tactics to achieve the 200k mark and even beat my score with my own tactics, but I originally only went after that score because someone around here was talking alot of trash so I set out to beat that person and be the first to break 200k and post it. That person motivated me to do better and try harder, alot of negative things came out due to me posting the score but alot of good came out as well, he motivated me and I in turn motivated others to get to that level and even beat my score, it also shows what is possible in the game if you try hard enough and actually take the time to do it. And others are following along trying harder than ever as you can see to do better, so in a small way all the negative came out to be a good thing for others struggling just to make the 100k club.

For those struggling, dont ever give up and return to port with fish left or deck gun ammo, sink nothing less than c2's with your torpedos and put yourself in a position to only use 1 fish to bring it down, or at least slow it down and deck gun it to death. If you sink nothing but c2 and above using all of your fish, youll break 100k, do the math and youll see, and never forget your deck gun can take out large ships and not just small merchants, do this, and youll break this 100k mark with ease.

Thanks cannon for the kind words and understanding, we got off on the wrong foot but now seem to be in the same lane, good hunting and no hard feelings brother.

Finally succeeded in sinking more than 100.000 Tons in one mission thanks to a large convoy.
It was done in campaign mode with a realism setting of 78%.

I managed to torp 3 other big ships, they didn't sink immediately, there speed was 'stationary' so i continued to follow the rest of the convoy, afterwards i returned to the position where the 3 ships were but when i got there only a part of there bows was visible above the waterline, the sunk in the meanwhile (not totally though).
But i did not get them in my captains log although it me who sank them!
Anyone had the same experience?

Ive noticed for a while now that in grid AM26 most of the task forces I get a radio message about happen to be in that grid, so today I thought why not check it out. Before heading there I went into Loch Ewe and sank the known fiji in there and did the same in scapa flow, then went to the grid. I waited maybe 20 minutes and I landed in the middle of a task force and ran to periscope depth.

8 DD and one Illustrious carrier and one Nelson BB, 3 DD ran over my location and didnt notice me there, I rang off a shot at the BB and it noticed my steam torp and sped up, only to allow it to hit the rear engine compartment shutting it down to 0 knots. I evaded DD for a few minutes with decoys and fired another shot midship and shallow, that thing went up like a chinese fireworks factory and sunk fast. I managed to get out of there with the aid of a few decoys and headed back near Brest.

I rolled into the middle of yet another task force of nothing but 8 DD and 1 escort carrier. My fish bounced off the front of the carrier and it sped up and got out of range, the DD tried to find me but I was so far off I got out of their range pretty quick. After that I ran into a series of t3 tankers with C3 following them and ended up producing a score of 122,032 during july of 1943. Im already a member but wanted to tell a little tale for those hungering for the almighty title of 100k officer

07-26-2005, 02:12 PM
Well, I just got 104k, thanks to a large convoy and a liner
In convoy was
Enemy-1 T3, 1 T2, 5 C2, 3 Small Merchant, 4 Coastal Merchant, 1 V&W DD
Neutral-4 C3s, 1 t3, 1 Small Tanker-all American

August in 1940, I sank all the big enemy ships + 2 Small Merchants, and then I sank the neutral T3 with a nice mid ship shot, sinking it.
Before I attacked the convoy I had gone around Lock Ewe and proceeded down the water inbetween Ireland and England, on the way I had sunk 1 C2, 1 Small Merchant, and a Liner-seperately, I deck gunned all of them took me about 60 shots total, then I used my MGs to sink an Elco and a Fishing Boat.
I ended with around 104k.

I'm still stuck at Kiel and I can't transfer to Wilhelmshaven, and I'm building up reknown, that's why I didn't attack the C3s, but I couldn't pass on a nice juicy American Tanker going from Galveston to Liverpool.
I'm still trying to upload the screen-oh I played on 88% realism.

http://img181.imageshack.us/img181/4752/100k2oe.png (http://imageshack.us)

I just cut out the part I need to show, it was too big before and I didn't wanna shrink it too small.

07-26-2005, 03:50 PM
Well dont worry about wilhelmshaven because you get forced to move to brest anyways, try a transfer there if its available or to st nazaire would be a better choice and its super easy to get out of your port and hunt.

OK 12 out of my 20 partols so far are 100,000+ tonnes 2 of the 12 are 150,000+ (all missions done with 50-80% realism sometimes higher) i do a fair amount of saving and reloading to get some of my high scores. I also enjoy shooting down as many plane as i can

07-27-2005, 01:32 PM
Just going thru the previous listing and i notice the lack of downed aircraft. My question is What do you use the ammo on if you ain't bringing down planes i know the AA gun is good for MTBs, trawlers and fishing boats what else???? I reckon its half the fun jinking across the ocean avoiding bombs while peppering away at planes. Im normally not happy unless i bring down 5 (ACE statis) on every patrol. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

07-27-2005, 08:30 PM
I never ran into any aircraft on that patrol, so far I've gone on 11 patrols w/12 downed hurricanes, truthfully I never really see many aircraft, and I do use my AA a lot on small vessels and deck cargo-for fun-since I really don't fight many enemy planes, but I don't avoid them like some people.

07-28-2005, 04:46 AM
So do i make the 100K club????

I found the easy way to get attacked by planes is to just sink something thats close to land. With luck there are no DDs in the area to come and investigate but planes will. Once one sees you he calls in all his buddies and bingo you start fighting off swarms of them. In my mission above i fought off heaps and downed 8 before taking a bit of damage and having to run. My best is 13 and two of them were with the deck gun (i would have killed lots more if i'd used just the flak gun but it was getting boring)

07-28-2005, 12:43 PM
11th patrol on my first career: 108753 tons. Not the best, but I like this game!

07-29-2005, 08:03 AM
Now that I am a memeber how do I get the picture for my signature line.

08-01-2005, 11:56 AM
Does this count: 126168 Tons, Patrol 11.
Made the run to my grid (AN52), shooting up a bunch of cargo ships with my deck gun, along the way. After my patrol, I headed back and picked up a NICE FAT JUICY convoy. AM grid in the convoy lane West of Ireland. Only problem was: NO MORE DECK AMMO! If it hadn't been for that 24000 ton Passenger Liner, It would have been REAL CLOSE I ended up using 5 torps on that ship alone: 4 into the Starbord side and one from my stern tube in the Port side.
Using a VIIB with normal realism.
