    CV experts

    With that ping nothing will save you I'm afraid. Rework CVs require low ping specifically because of how time-sensitive the drops are (its basically near impossible to perform good drops on moving targets with high ping).
  2. Description: It is consistently reproduceable to lose control of the entire CV system as a CV player when setting waypoints on yourself mid-flight. Reproduction steps: Enter battle in a CV Move CV forward by pressing W Take off a squad of your choice While mid-flight, try to stop CV by setting waypoint on yourself Result: Game becomes unresponsive, both CV hull and squad cannot be controlled, mouse cursor permanently on "observation mode". Expected Result: Waypoint is set and no issues arise at all, being able to control CV/squad again. Technical details: Occured around 5:55 pm UTC +8, and around 6:05 UTC (training room reproduction which required force quit, no replay on that). Replays attached. 20191010_175957_PJSA106-Ryujo_42_Neighbors.wowsreplay python.log
  3. 1. Description: Aircraft in a CV strike squad suddenly explodes and loses all HP when in range of AA guns/flak 2. Reproduction steps: Not known, does not happen consistently. But aircraft are typically subject to this bug within long range AA. 3. Result Aircraft within the squad explode suddenly and lose all their HP without ever coming into contact with flak as intended. 4. Expected Result: Aircraft only takes damage from continuous DPS or flak puffs that they fly through. 5. Technical details: Replay provided for review purposes, python log not available as its not my own game. 20190528_201250_PJSA110-Hakuryu_16_OC_bees_to_honey.wowsreplay Twitch clip of bug:
  4. 1. Description Aircraft squad taking off may receive fighter damage meant for previously called back squads that were under fighter interception 2. Reproduction steps A sequence of the player's actions which triggered the bug. Example: Attack a ship that has a fighter Wait until fighter locks on, then retreat (might need a few attempts, maybe with last attack run only Take off another squad, this new squad may suddenly take the fighter damage meant for previous squad 3. Result New aircraft squad takes severe damage, causing game to be compromised. 4. Expected result Fighter damage should only be applied to the squad that is being intercepted, not to a new squad taking off some 15 km away. 5. Technical details Replay file and python log attached; bug occurs at last minute of replay (its a 20 min game, it cost me the game) 20190521_214412_PASA518-Enterprise_42_Neighbors.wowsreplay python.log
  5. 1. Description: Sometimes when overflying a DD that has DFAA and has ambushed you with its AA, turning around within its AA range results in flak ticks being applied to your planes without any flak appearing on the screen, causing massive losses without any visual indication. 2. Reproduction Steps: Approach an AA build DD that has DFAA DD gets spotted and pops DFAA, ambushing the squad Squad overflies the DD, trying to turn around to line up an attack Then, it may take unreasonably large damage ticks quickly, much quicker than continuous DPS under DFAA. 3. Result: Squad gets killed several times as quickly as intended without visual indications. AA DD sees flak the whole time so they can see it but not the CV. 4. Expected result: Squad takes damage from visible flak and continuous DPS only. 5. Technical details: Attached are 9 replays: 4 from CV PoV and 4 from AA DD PoV, training room session. One replay from a random battle from an AA Nicholas' perspective. 20190511_232408_PASA528-Saipan_34_OC_islands.wowsreplay 20190511_231016_PBSA204-Hermes_34_OC_islands.wowsreplay 20190511_232407_PASA106-Ranger_34_OC_islands.wowsreplay 20190511_231019_PASA108-Lexington_34_OC_islands.wowsreplay 20190511_231022_PASD021-Fletcher-1943_34_OC_islands.wowsreplay 20190511_232410_PASD508-Kidd_34_OC_islands.wowsreplay 20190511_231015_PASD014-Leader-1919_34_OC_islands.wowsreplay 20190511_232408_PASD029-Sims-1941_34_OC_islands.wowsreplay 20190511_202438_PASD014-Leader-1919_08_NE_passage.wowsreplay python.log Additional information: It seems that the phenomenon happens in long range AA; sims is observed to have this issue.
  6. I managed to get to the "Superior" level of the final Hall of Fame yesterday and thus should have gotten 3 containers, but did not get any RN containers today (normally I would find them in the port waiting for me when the next directive starts). Anyone else having this issue?
  7. Uh, please keep it civil; I don't want this thread locked. However, I will also say that the bots can indeed be smart, but more importantly this also covers account farmers. What this means is the intentional suicide of ships in battles to quickly grind HoF points or just to inflate number of battles. I just want these bots/riggers to be made into examples.

    Hall of Fame Points

    This is one of the reasons I made my thread yesterday. Report every single last one of them. PM a mod/WG staff/send a ticket. The more evidence they have... the more justification they will have to whack them.
  9. @tc1259 I have used the relevant report thread. Trust me. To the rest, name and shame IMO should only be reserved for proven cases (of which there are quite a few, at least 2 in recent times). Suspects deserve the benefit of the doubt as much as the next guy. Nobody wants false positives. Its less of knowing WHO got caught and more of if anyone got caught at all. That is the reason I made this thread.
  10. Hello. I have not posted here for ages, but as far as getting WG's attention this seems to be the best place to go about it. So without further ado... Can we get more updates on WG's efforts in clamping down undesirable behaviour? I'm talking things like people botting, AFKing, CV rigging, and even those that suicide in scenario to get quick 5-stars. I'm sure many of us have seen it for ourselves and quite a few of us have reported them, but what happens to them? I have reported a LOT of those guys above (won't name which ones exactly) but have heard nothing about them. I understand its WG's policy to not share outcomes, but unless I find out from somewhere else that the offender has been banned or not, its quite disheartening. So... can we have that "Bot/AFK" thread back? The one where WG used to say how many BOT/AFKs were flushed out each time? That would go a long way in making players know that their reports actually matter and not seem like they have ended in limbo. That's all, frankly. Discussions are welcome but keep it civil. I don't want this thread locked and sent down the drain. Edit: This is the aforementioned Bot/AFK thread.

    CV Squadron voices not working

    1. Description CV squadron voices not activating upon various actions being completed (idling, taking off, being attacked, dropping enemies, etc) 2. Reproduction Steps 1. Take any CV into battle 2. Perform various actions such as taking off, idling, and commencing attacks with the squads. 3. Result Utter silence apart from the faint hum of aircraft flying. 4. Expected Result Squads should respond/chatter based on what actions were taken with the corresponding squad (e.g. squad 2 ready for takeoff on deck would say "Group 2, ready!", etc) 5. Technical Details Time of occurence: around 23:30-00:20 UTC + 8 Attachments: python.log DxDiag.txt 20180701_222845_PASA507-Saipan-1946_41_Conquest.wowsreplay (replay 1) 20180701_230534_PASA508-Enterprise_37_Ridge.wowsreplay (replay 2)

    Winrate is Meaningless

    Well... its meaningless if taken out of context, but you gotta remember that stats measure past performance. Like it or not, a 60% player has have won 6/10 games instead of the 5/10 that a 50%er would have. There ARE really cases where you just can't win, but that threshold is determined by a few factors... some of which are entirely within your control. For example, Driving a good/OP ship in a really OP/good div will usually net you way more wins than the average joe grinding his ship.

    So you're saying that asking how to beat potentially gimmicky and unfun premiums as a new player is considered "drivel"?
