    CV Rework Test 2

    I'm participating in the CV Rework test, but I can't connect to the CV test server to update my client. I tried uninstalling, in order to reinstall, but now I can't see the CV Test server in the list of instances to install. Has this been an issue for anyone else, or am I not eligible to participate in this round?

    CV Rework

    A few weeks ago a lot of us participated in the closed beta test for CVs. Since the test finished we haven't heard anything further on the matter. Are we able to get an update please on the progress since? Thanks

    Jean Bart

    Is there any information on when we can expect to hear anything about the release of the Jean Bart? When will it be available? How will we be able to get it? Etc.

    Clan battle start?

    We can't get in either. Maybe they forgot to reset their clocks.

    CB times for AUS and NZ

    Why are we put through this every single season? How could WG make the times later and not expect some sort of backlash from the ANZ community? Why won't WG at least trial (for a season) an earlier start time for us? You can't tell us it's because of server numbers and the MM. Here's a news flash.....WE DON'T CARE! We don't care if we are seeing the same clans over again (it happens late in the season when clans stop playing), we just want a fair go and the abilty to participate. Why is this such a difficult thing to understand? The cross server idea isn't going to work either. EU CB times for ANZ are 0400-0700, and NA are around midday when everyone is at work or school. None of these are going to work for 95% of people, so why bother? Please, we are begging you, open the times up an hour earlier so we at least get a chance to compete. I don't understand why this is so hard for WG to understand.

    RM Roma

    Here is a video I recently created on the Roma. I hope you enjoy it.

    Update 0.6.15 Feedback

    Pearl Harbor is already in the game. How about Sydney Harbour? It is one of the most recognisable harbours in the world, and Australia had the largest navy (outside of the 4 major powers) of WWII.

    Suggestion: Royal Australian Navy in World of Warships

    I think the above is a great write up. I am all for Commonwealth lines of cruisers and destroyers. Some thoughts on how you could make them different to the RN lines: Cruisers: give them the Perth smoke and HE. Destroyers: maybe give them the Perth smoke as well (make it the flavour of the Commonwealth lines), then with the torpedoes, allow the players to choose between shallow and deep water torpedoes (like choosing between AP and HE bombs on US CVs). Give the shallow torpedoes shorter range and worse concealment then the deep water ones. Would be very keen to see the Australia as a T3 battlecruiser as well.

    Suggestion: Royal Australian Navy in World of Warships

    Yes, yes, and YES! I am all for this. I definitely think this should be considered by WG. Especially HMAS Australia.
  10. On behalf of the players in Australia and New Zealand: WG, What the hell?? After all the complaints you've received from us surrounding the timings for Clan Battles, you gone and done the same thing again, making the Naval Force 9 tournament at a time when the bulk of us can only give maybe 1 of the nights any attention. You want to attract people to your game, but right now, you're doing a damn good job of pushing people away. A large portion of my clan don't even play anymore because of your continued refusal to listen to and acknowledge us. We know there are a couple of Mods in our corner trying to help us, which is appreciated, but you're not helping yourselves. You really need to start listening to, and catering to, the other timezone of the server, not just the one. This is infuriating beyond belief.

    Request for information

    I had a clan member say to me yesterday "it would be nice to be to go up a league." I said to him "never mind a league, I'd just like to go up a division within a league!" Now, my clan members are not "noobs", it basically comes down to the fact that we just don't have the opportunity to run Clan Battles on a regular basis. We get Saturday night only, and that's it. We're just not able to get the time under our belts to refine or skills, which puts us at a disadvantage compared to other clans which can run every night, and this all comes down to the timings imposed on us. We all took part In the survey a few weeks ago, but was wondering myself over the last weekend what was happening with that information and why haven't we heard back yet? There's been plenty of time. Personally, given WG's history, I've resigned myself to the fact that we shouldn't be expecting any change until season 2 of CBs.

    Some more CV Suggestions

    Here is what I would do with CVs if anyone is interested.

    Update 0.6.12 Feedback

    Have already voted on the clan battle times, would like to see the times extended bya good 4hrs at least. Also, where is the Cesare? The rest of the world have it, why are we being left out and given some silly Dragon bundle instead? The game already has too many reskinned Myokos. We don't need anymore. That being said, really enjoying the Halloween mission, and I like the adjustments to smoke firing. Next on the agenda is to stop radar going through land and make it line of sight only, like it is in the real world.

    CB and WG Asia's huge mistake

    Not sure there's a big enough player base to have a dedicated Aus/NZ server alone. Maybe an Eastern Asia server (Australia, NZ, Japan, Korea and the western Pacific nations (pseudo Oceanic) Put the server in Sydney on a trial basis and see how it runs perhaps? Then the rest of Asia be on the same server as they are now. Again, I don't think there's the player base for it, but might be worth looking into as a possibility for the future. Then everyone can be accommodated according to their timezone for things like this.

    CB and WG Asia's huge mistake

    I'm not even sure I'd be able to get a game in during the week or on a Sunday. I'm normally in bed by 2300 as I have to be up for work the next morning at 0600. This time allocation caters only to the Singapore and Thailand markets and completely excludes the rest of Asia effectively. New Zealand are in a worse position than Eastern Australia (add 2 hours), so their time slot doesn't open until 0100. Then places like Japan and Korea open at 2200. These times are just too late for the bulk of the Asia market. Asia covers at least 6-7 time zones, and allowances should be made to accommodate everyone, not just one small cross-section of the market. Seriously WG, do you want people to play CBs or not? First you exclude CVs from the game, so there's one section of the community alienated, you limit it to 1 BB per side, so there's another section up in arms, and now you come up with this ridiculous (and limited) time slot which does not accommodate the bulk of your market! I wouldn't expect any rave reviews of CBs after the first season, especially if the bulk of the population can't play it due to Real Life commitments. You have to remember to ow that the average age of gamers is low to mid 30s (male and female) who have families and jobs, not a teenage boy with boundless energy who can play anytime they like.
