    A Kayneth Story

    So, as i'm sure you've failed to notice, i've been away for quite some time recently , six weeks to be exact, but more than that from this forum, because WG.net. Where was i? Well, nominally, i was on a 'vacation', if i could call it that.... basically i was expected to make use of my leave in order to ensure that certain construction work going on in one of our estates turned out properly. So, my vacation took me to Garhwal, in the Himalayan foothills, a region of which i am a native and where my extended family is still very strongly tied to. My job was to ensure that the new greenhouse sheds being erected at an orchard were up before the snow was on the ground. Since the location of the plantation is rather remote and there exists no motorable road, all goods must be transported by carrying them on your back. The long bars which made up the frame, the plexi-glass sheets and all the assembly materiel had to carried by porters and ponies hired on a daily-wage basis from the nearby town to the place where the greenhouses were to be erected. As the various loads were being hauled on backs, i didn't want to be seen in this crowd as a lazy city-slicker given over to sedentarism (most of my life has been spent in military cantonments far away from urban or semi-urban areas). I decided therefore that i'd carry part of the load myself along the way. I borrowed a long, metal-reinforced stick of bamboo with grooves on wither end from one of the porters. There were four crates of nut and bolts to be carried, so i broke them into two pairs, and roped them into the grooves on either end of the stick and carried it across my shoulders as we trekked through the countryside to the construction spot. Now, i've been a long-time player of WoT (since 2011) and have followed WoWs through most of its early development, though i have more recenlty distanced myself from both games and have given over my in-game account to a family member still interested in WoWs. So, carrying four boxes on my shoulders, walking through the rugged and green Himalayan landscape in the midst of birdsong and constantly buffeted by cold winds, i suddenly realised my condition. It doesn't matter how far i go from WoT and WoWs. It doesn't matter if i am 500Km and a full day of travel away from my computer. It doesn't matter if this a remote and sparsely populated region where Internet is till no better than 256kbps or GPRS. I am still forced to carry ■ ■ ■ ■ if i want success and prestige. .............................................................................................................................................................................................................................

    SuperTester Accrediting Thread!

    The more you play of World of Warships, the more you realize that Wargaming.net has managed to create something very special here. And i'm entirely serious here. When what is a very popular series of GPU's refused to obey the will of the devs and run WoWs, the maker of the said insubordinates repented and released drivers to make good! You don't get much more 'Street Cred' than that, do you? To move ahead, have you heard of the V.I. Lenin Ch.N.P.P. Even if you haven't don't worry. Stuff from over there is possible already embedded into almost everything you've encountered in your life. You know, just like WG.net has embedded itself? Now while WoWs is considerably better designed than the RBMK-1000's used over there (in retrospect), it has been implied that the amount of lethal radiation given off by the Big World engine far exceeds that measured above Ch.N.P.P. The ones who worked in the cleanup following the Ch.N.P.P. incident- the emergency response personnel, the liquidators and the eventual caretakers of the surround who, for pop-culture reference like to call themselves 'Stalkers' (the movie/ 'Roadside Picnic') were courageous and dutiful, whom for some reason, don't really feature too often in discourse, but well, why look that far when we have our own SEA-biscuits to look up to. Into this maelstrom of radiation, bias and micro-stuttering boldly march forward, our SuperTesters! (as styled correctly) With great pride, they play the game for you in advance so that they may find bugs in the game and help its release state to reach a high level of balance and lack of bugs. In adddition to this hard work for which they have selflessly volunteered for by requesting their friends employed by WG to be allowed, they will also help you steer your opinions of WoWs and of WG.net as a whole to the correct course. Not only do these people, the bold and the daring, suffer the privations and injuries that are involved in testing an as yet unfinished and poorly balanced game which has attained full release, but they also send messages from withing the maelstorm of these tests! Messages of the tiding of war and of unresolvable bugs, which are then purged. Fellow comrades in free-loading! Will you just grind on with you sub-50% WR and do nothing to support these Bravehearts! Will you not support the efforts of these morally upright individuals?!?! Nay, for you must align your goals to theirs, and to the greater goals of WG.net! For it is in there that the Greater Good lies, comrades! You must break open the savings-bank with the flames of your card, and with your own hands, you must purchase the Doubloons, so that for one more day bread and cheese and small comfort may arrive in the houses of those that work for the Greater Good! This eulogy was NOT sponsored by WG.net, but was created and published at the tacit necessity of adequately accrediting our beloved SuperTesters! Let these unnoticed souls bask in what small glory may be showered by these mere words. In their modesty, they may shy away from your praise, but shower praise on them comrades, shower it on them and ignore the seasons! If the standard means of education where you live is Spoon-Feeding, feel free to PM me.
  3. This skin affects only the turrets on your Kongou-gata Battlecruiser by turning the bland grey into a zebra-stripe dazzle pattern camouflage pattern, as worn by Haruna from around late February, 1945 to her sinking at her moorings on the 28th of July, 1945, and her subsequent scrapping in 1946........ The above photographs' reference has been used to make the turrets as accurate as possible within the limits of my skill. Note that there exists some discrepancy between various sources about the colour of the turrets, with some describing them to be white stripes on dark green, whereas other sources claiming they were pale grey on dark grey. The given skin uses White on the default WG-supplied background to not to make the turrets stand out too much. Considerable attention was also paid to appropriately weather the stripes on the turret. Should work for dead turrets too, though quality there is compromised a little bit. An early version of this skin was tested and was confirmed to have worked. It is expected that this one would work too, but i cannot confirm as i am able to log into WoBs recently due to connection problems. Screenshots of the earlier, rougher version, courtesy help from Retia! Hull skin and re-model not included in this download as they were not made my me. Special thanks to Retia for testing this skin out. 0/ -=DOWNLOAD=-
