    I wonder if this becomes a trend...

    Come join TDA 😛 And in the process - I have issues with 501st 😛 only cause I'm a member of the 501st Legion in RL

    Been a Mod since long before world of warships was a game 😛 I'm just the more silent type - Lurking from the shadows and what not.

    I can only talk from my own experience, yes, across the board, paid random loot boxes are being phased out. See this link for more info https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-06-14/e3-games-loot-boxes-being-axed-from-new-games/9860802 Additionally, there are a number of countries starting to put in to law that loot boxes are considered gambling... so I would say watch this space, it usually takes law makers around 48 to 72 months to catch up and regulate
  5. If my post seemed like I was directly poking you, that wasn't the intent. Between OS level information, Route Tables, Log Sends and a few other things, it's entirely possible to determine where in the stack it's failed, but it's complex and not something I would expect a game to be able to do. So yes.... 1. WG cannot fix internet issues, that's down to the mega corps who own the internet routes 2. Local crashes, could, in theory be sent up to the game to say if it was normal / abnormal, but I would Totally not want that to occur, sets a precedent that I wouldn't want to see. 3. I think you'll find the servers are more than capable of handling the load, the issue will be more down to the bandwidth available at a number of points 😉
  6. Hehe I pop back in for a second and I see this 😛 *puts on my MCSE hat (Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer)* Just off the top of my head - Windows since 7 does record a comprehensive set of codes and event ID's in order to determine why it's restarted. The three below are the ones I know off by heart, and get recorded at time of Shut Down, so in theory, they could be sent up to Wargaming as a better indication as to why the player has suddenly dropped. Am I saying that this occurs, no, well it depends, I've never acutally looked at the code in WG games, nor do I care about it that much. BUT 🙂 Yes, windows does track states and why it was shut down. Additionally - Event ID Description 1074 Logged when an app (ex: Windows Update) causes the system to restart, or when a user initiates a restart or shutdown. 6006 Logged as a clean shutdown. It gives the message "The Event log service was stopped". 6008 Logged as a dirty shutdown. It gives the message "The previous system shutdown at time on date was unexpected". In addition we have the additional logs that can determine action done by a user. 4647 - Log off and Sign Out For the life of me, i also can't remember the event ID number that tells you the Network State as well, not to mention battery health and sleep modes for Windows. But they are out there and if i worried more about it i would search. So as for your statement, Windows 100% knows if it was a clean power down / log off / application or a dirty shutdown. What It doesn't know is the 'exact' reason why and if you know the server family of windows, that's why when you boot back in, it will always prompt you for a 'why' and what happened.

    Increase post-battle service fee for T8,9ships

    In all honesty, the moment i gave up caring about my stat's, wins, losses blah blah blah i started to find the fun again. But to the original op - changing the value of repair cost's isn't going to improve high end battles, to excuse the pun - that ship sailed long ago.

    Parenting done right 😛 Your poor poor stats thou, and might explain some battles we've teamed up for lol

    CV Rework (SEA)

    Hi All, Please remember that the rework is being done as the old way wasn't working. Whilst the rework is being tested, super testers are also running these tests (From memory on a dedicated server) so when Wargaming collect all feedback, they can propose and make changes. WG have to do something different with the cv's to make them more playable and this is the current preferred option, but that doesn't mean it will be the one they go for. Again, the CV re-work is a Work in Progress - so anything that you may see, feel and believe may actually differ from end results My biggest piece of advice is to 'Watch this space'
  10. I get this sentiment mate :) Problem is, naming and shaming is something WG won't do. They'll give you numbers, and maybe saying how many we're reported and how many were actioned would be a step in the right direction. But they won't name proven accounts, as naming and shaming is as someone has stated above bad for the community as a whole. It's also can be seen as breaching privacy laws in various countries, not to mention bullying and introducing those players to harassment.
  11. Hi Strat, Welcome back - I'll point you to a thread that's been specifically setup for reporting bots. Unfortunately the Mod's can't really tell you the data on what they are doing, all we know is the unsportsmanlike like conduct thread is being used. You'll find the link to that thread in my pinned post about mods, and how you get our attention :) Otherwise feel free to pm me for information, i'll do my best to point you in the right direction. To everyone else: The problem with naming and shaming is literally this - How do you determine a Player who is either very bad / disabled who plays the game as a form of relief and a bot? Sure there are signs, but there can be enough doubt to make it hard to tell... so naming and shaming isn't going to help. We only have to look at how stats are used to justify one persons comments over another. And we only need to look at our own forums a few weeks ago where a T10 player was asking a question that clearly he didn't know, the communities response was woeful and action had to be taken. So the rules are there in place to ensure everyone is treated fairly and equally, at least here on the forums.
