  1. Huh ? Not to my knowledge, and I am still actively moderating on WoT, both in game, and on the forums. Do you have any source for that claim ?
  2. IMHO, a very stupid move. Reasons: A) There is NO (Zero) Asia server WG Staff present on the WoWS Discord. B) The Asian server forum sees decent posting activity on the various regional subsections. There are no such subsections for the KR, JP, and CN communities on the WoWS discord. And as stated in A), there are NO WG staff from those regions present on the WoWS discord. But then again, the Asia Server WoWS forum has been disregarded by the WG Asia staff for at least two years. Proof : Staff Directory - World of Warships Official Asia Forums - Conan is still listed as Publishing Producer, even though he left WoWS several years ago, and moved from Taiwan to Singapore, where he now is doing work as the WG Community Evangelist for WoT. IMHO, this removal of the forums, is a way to "cover" the lack of work the WoWS WG staff have done on the Forum side since Conan left, not to mention on maintaining and expanding the communities. This is definitely something I am going to talk with Victor about, next time I see him.

    What If? Modeling the Battle of Jutland

    Please fix the following on the announcement :"... Battle of Jutland was the largest naval encounter during World War I. The battle took place in the North Sea, off the coast of the Danish Jutland island. " The text in red should be changed to "The peninsular part of Denmark, called Jutland." Jutland, or Jylland as its called in Danish, is not an island. Its the peninsular part of Denmark, connected to the continental part of Europe. The northern part of the Jutland peninsular is an island separated from the rest of the peninsular by Limfjorden, and is not called Jutland on its own, but Vendsyssel. As the Battle of Jutland took place in the North Sea proper, and not in the part of Skagerrak sound between Denmark and Norway, it was nowhere near the only part of Jutland that can be called an island. Please teach proper history AND geography lessons. This is afterall not american school children you are talking to. Thanks in advance, AALG, located in Denmark.

  10. After a long hiatus from computer gaming, I (ofcourse) also have picked up playing World of Warships again. And what a different beast it is, since I played it last. I have slowly begun to share my time equally among WoT and WoWS, trying to get back in the groove. One thing I have really enjoyed upon my return is the Scenario battles, hence I had to get the various tier VI and tier VII ships, and among those, I picked up the russian tier VI cruiser, the Budyonny. And what a delightfull beast it is, even though it is a "paper ship" - I.E, never got past the initial design phase. Developing the plans and constructing the ship got postponed indefinitely, due to the Nazi-Germany invasion, and the plans was archived in the USSR naval archives. After the war, the design and buildphase was not restarted, probably due to a combination of economy, obsolete design choices relating to the post-WWII situation , and ofcourse change of strategic and tactical considerations. But based on the rediscovered designpapers, Lesta Studios and Wargaming has enabled us to take the Budyonny out for a cruise, and what a blast it is IMHO - at least this battle :). And thats where my hate/love relationship with RNG comes into the picture.... I have a special flag for my ships in WoWS, that I got from the Dev team in St Petersburg, which I never have used before - The "Valuable Player" flag which shouldnt give any perks, unlike some of the other "Special" category flags. The flag is a white Four-leaf Clover on a blue background. My new conspiracy theory is that this flag changes RNGesus in my favour ! I mean, it does depict the lucky symbol of a Four-leaf Clover after all...😄 I manage to complete the "For the Motherland" collection, so I could mount two flags on my Russian ships, so ofcourse it should be hoisted on the Budyonny - I got it from a russian developer after all 😄 Into battle, and it didn't look so good after the first 5 minutes, as I had taken a salvo from a battleship, reducing my HP down to about one sixth of the 30800 HP a fully upgraded Budyonny has in the game. But fortunately in the Raptor Rescue scenario battle, it is possible to "repair", by staying in close proximity of one of the ships you are tasked to protect. So over the course of the battle, I got the HP built up again, enough to survive the scenario battle, with more than half of the possible HP for the Budyonny cruiser. And along the way, I managed to sink 10 enemy ships, including getting a staggering 33 Citadel hits in on those enemy ships. Not bad for 152 mm guns I'd say. The video is in 3 sections : The first part at 00:00:00 to 00:00:58 shows the ship in the St. Petersburg port, as well as my 10 crewskill captains selected crewskills + the flags and signals hoisted on the ship. The second part at 00:00:59 to 00:18:46 shows the battle as it unfolded. The third and final part from 00:18:47 to 00:22:13 shows all the info from the 4 After-Battle report screens. And as usual for all my WoT and WoWS videos, it is available in 1080p Full HD.

    Alabama - first ingame video

    By special permission from St. Petersburg via Vadim (Global Integration manager) and Sergey (Dev lead), I have been granted special permission to publish an Ingame video of the Alabama in action. This is not a general permission to publish videos and details of the Alabama, as it is still under testing and therefore under NDA. Permission to publish this video, is therefore a special case, due to the way the Asia server and its players are regarded by WG - we are NOT the redheaded stepchild, au contraire ;) The Alabama is such a great ship to sail in, even with the red Supertesters only Camouflage mounted.Divisioning up with a couple of clan mates, and then ending up facing another division of clan mates on the opposite team, just makes it more fun - Especially when among the 5 kills, both of the clan mates on the other team are included Dont dismiss the fun of bragging rights and good natured smacktalk on Teamspeak, when you kill a clan mate.As for how to play the Alabama, consider it an Iowa Lite - BUT it still packs a punch, as can be seen in this battle. I can only recommend buying it, when/if it is put up for sale. As usual, available in 1920x1080 full HD and includes the full After Battle Report is included at the end of the video.

  13. Mr Seagal, even though he mostly can be rated as a B movie actor these days, still has a large fan base the areas where the largest market for WoWS are. That you can say the connection of him to WoWS is a bit far fetched, considering that his naval experiences stems from one movie, "Under Siege", marketingwise it makes sense, considering his fanbase in China, Japan, and the other far east countries, as well as Russia.

    No, this is not funny, WG, why locking my account

    Spending money on the game doesn't exempt you from following the rules, which you DID accept to follow when you signed up. Even if it was alledgedly meant as a joke. I​I'll quote the relevant part here, and I have emphazied the actual violation, which has caused your account being banned by support: As Amade has stated, your only course of action, is to contact support. But there is no guarantee they will reinstate your account. Attempting to sell or buy an account, or stating that you intend to sell or have bought the account, is one of the major violations of the rules. /AALG

    Dumb question: what's wrong with sharing accounts

    Account SELLING is illegal. When detected, the account will be permanently banned.Up to the person who purchased it, to try and get a refund from the seller. WG will not refund anything. If you read the EULA and Rules, you will see that YOU dont own the account. WG does. You cant sell something you dont own.. Hence when (not if) it is detected, WG takes their property back, from the person who purchased it from a person who wasnt entitled to sell it
