  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  4. @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.
  5. 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.

    People Giving giving advice

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

    'Stat-bashing' - where do you draw the line?

    Reminder that WoT got all chat removed. Just don't be a douche.

    Please Dont do this in Ranked

    As it is, ranked is 7v7 randoms with some segregation. I'd say, grind away (especially if its lower ranks).

    'Stat-bashing' - where do you draw the line?

    Personally I dont go after people stats right off the bat. Its pointless. However, if he acts in a dumb way and then proceeds to flame everyone and be a douche, I prefer to stick it to him. Also, regarding divs: Theyre great for winning. The only times ive seen divving be actually bad are in faildivs and in triple potato divs. However, thats the issue: theyre great for winning. If you div a lot, you are going to perform as a divved player and not as a solo player. You are simply going to win more due to teamwork, ship composition, and guarantee of at least 2 good players on your flank per game compared to a solo game where the only constant is you. I am not trying to say youre a bad player, but if the majority (say, 75-80%) of your games are divved and then you claim to be a good solo player, then I'm not going to take it as seriously as someone with the same WR but mostly solo. An example that I have much experience with: CV divs. You bring a CV + 2 AA ships that also carry lots of damage and/or utility (Kidd, Kutuzov, DM, mino, BBs). Any flank the divmates are on is almost always an instant win on air control with little to no input from the divved CV. The only way for a solo opposing CV player to win (the air) would be to find a flank with lower AA and then decisively outplay the enemy CV, all the while the flank (s) with the divmates is a no-fly zone with smoke, radar, or both, causing the enemy CV to have minimal impact. This creates a situation where while the CV div wins a lot, the requirements for doing so is lower than doing the same in a solo CV. Its quite depressing to be able to win a 1v1 vs the enemy CV and then lose because they guarantee 2 AA ships to stop you cold. For this reason, I usually don't rate CV players unless I have had the chance to 1v1 them in battle. Unfortunately, a lot of the divved CVs I meet lose their bite once they leave the comfort of their divmates AA bubble... And honestly, I don't blame them. You get complacent when playing with divs IMO and it kind of gets in the way of being a better player (I usually play for the win and to get better). MM also encourages this since ship stats are not factored in and div rules are too lax. Just my two cents.

    Saipan is unstoppable....

    There really should be a rule against unconstructive posts.

    Reason Why I Hate the US CV Changes

    Thats a far cry from what your stats say you do. I'm very sure you can do far more with 112 than 202. Secondly, measuring how well you do in an AS loadout by damage dealt should already be a red flag.
