Hi dear Arctic Circle Team,
first my congratulations on this fine game I much enjoy playing!
A naval war simulation as this is of course a complex game and as such has smaller and larger "errors" or strange behavior, that seems odd to the user: I just played C01S06 "Peekaboo in the Fjords" and it was no challenge at all. What happend: I took the southern Storm(Skjald) and ordered it to head north for the enemy surface group (3 russian ships (medium, medium, large)) at maximum speed. I was surprised, that I wasn't attacked, but OK they didn't detect me. I approached the group from behind and drove well into range for my Otobreda 76mm gun - without being detected or be fired at. Then I started shelling them (when you want to call 7,6cm rounds "shells"...) and then it got really strange. I expected to be blown out of the water in the following seconds or so, but nothing happened at all, I wasn't fired at. On the other hand my 7,6cm gun managed to sink the two medium ships with about 6 shots for each one. The second one managed to fire 1 anti-ship missile at me, just before it sunk. That missile I shot down with my AA missiles and then finished of the larger naval landing operation vessel, with several shots of my 7,6cm gun. Funny as that was, it makes no sense at all to me, regarding the size of these ships and the limited destructive power of a 7,6cm gun. Or am I erring in some point in my understanding of that setting? I would really like just two lines on this, out of curiosity if this "Teminator-Skjald"-variant is intentional or more a combat mechanics glitch.
Keep up the good work,
