I have only played a short time yet, but during this time a few questions grew in my mind.
One of my islands has been attacked, so I wanted to sail there with the carrier. Don`t know, if this is necessary at all, but, since you can`t control/ play the island`s defences I thought I better go there personally.
In the proximity of the island I faced the enemy carrier. I couldn`t start any of the vehicles, so I assumed I might be too far off of the shore. I noticed that the carrier defends itself against enemy Mantas, so I thought it will be the same now.
The enemy carrier steered directly towards me with guns blazing, damaging my ship... But no automatic response from my side. Hm, I guessed that I`m supposed to open fire manually, so I turned the ship and tried to pursuit the enemy, but I wasn`t able to left-click the enemy on the map, neither did it work to click anywhere on the open sea. Since I wasn`t in the mood to manually steer the ship the whole time until catching up I turned away... leaving a weird feeling of complete helplessness.
So, I thought it`s better to ask some people who know this game better than me.
I appreciate any help/ clarification in that matter.
