    Claim Your Public Test Rewards! (0.8.11)

    Not received either, but the previous time (Summer) I also faced a similar delay. I suppose it is best to be patient.

    CV experts

    To some extent I agree with you. While I do not like full generalizations there are many players in the WoWs community who blindly complain about a class in a factually incorrect manner, making a complete mockery of themselves in the face of people who are extensively experienced with the topic material. It is even worse when said players defend their blind opinions as fact even when they are blatantly incorrect. Many complaints about carriers now would not be relevant if people were simply experienced with playing them and knowing the actual experience. If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.

    My first T10

    Congratulations on your first TX!
  4. So it seems the Tier 6 Premiums from completing 15 battles in all 3 PTS versions for the event have been released. I got mine today... Gave it a little test drive too, it seems great! How is everyone else doing?
  5. Thanks for the attention to the issue. I also completed the missions. Will wait I guess.

    MM needs fixing ASAP

    You say "matchmaking needs fixing" I ask "so how would you do it" I'm not going to deny that one sided games are common in World of Warships, but there's a good reason why. It's not the matchmaking, it is that people are bad. So bad that the median winrate is reliably monitored to be 48%. When one team starts with an advantage on Asia, that advantage tends to be maintained. See it this way. Team A and B are both composed of average players (who are mostly mediocre). 6 ships from A and 6 ships from B approach an objective. The team B destroyer suicides, denying B spotting. The team A destroyer caps more freely if he has any understanding of the game (not everyone does). A goes to a 6 v 5 with spotting advantage. Most of these (mediocre skill) players on B react to this change too slowly, either pushing in in a suicide stream or simply being caught by focus fire. A:B goes 6v5 to 6v4 to 5v3 and B is left markedly behind. More guns firing with Asia's natural focus fire and the lack of game sense to tell when one needs to change from an aggressive position to a defensive one pretty much means the team that gets the early advantage always rolls over. Conversely, teams sometimes also throw teams after an early advantage when they overpush before an advantage is defined. But you should get the idea.

    Your priorities are horrible, WG

    What's the point of this complaint, really. If a line was underperforming noticeably it would be bad for the line's popularity, which would be in turn wasted effort for the developer. So Wargaming has a system of rebalancing based on (presumably) data. Their decisions are not always agreeable to everyone, but it just so happened that for whatever reason a massive and global hit to CV player numbers and performance made the cut faster than a battleship that had been deemed balanced on release (And for some reason paraded as too strong just for its armor apparently) and only was shown to fall out of favor over time. Wonder why. (P.S. All German BBs have inconsistent guns compared to their counterparts and are bad in my eyes)

    1 Game with No CV

    If I had played 14 midtier games and 13 had CVs, and they were pre-rework CVs, my battles would have been multiple times worse than now. But to tell the truth, at this point the CV population is such that I get maybe 2/3 my games with and 1/3 without carriers, with the carriers generally less impactful than pre-rework, which sort of seems to be a healthy balance for both surface enjoyment and the carrier population.

    Remove Newport from Scenario Rotation

    Okay. I struggled immensely during the previous rotation of Newport because let's be real, the median WR of people in this game is 48% and you can expect nothing. However, there are a few ships that excel at carrying this operation. I'd like to single out the use of my Leander, Shinonome and Farragut that gave me a 90% 5 star ratio. The strategy is quite simple. Hover around the middle during the first 3 waves putting point blanc torps into all targets from smoke and shellfire into the destroyers leading each wave, given they automatically shoot anything in range and thus remain spotted while you freely kill them (with the cruiser, stay far enough away to smokefire), especially the BBs. After all 3 waves die (mostly to your effort) the Leander is slightly better for focusing the two enemy cruisers chasing the Baltimore then smoking to farm the final wave ships while waiting for the Izumo to get closer to torp it. With the DDs, go straight for the middle island the Izumo will pass to the right of. Gun down the two DDs escorting the Izumo then plant a the fist-o-torpedo-destruction into it at point blanc from behind the island. This almost completely ensures your team will pull through.

    Z-49 in movie U571

    The real Z49 was a Type 1936C destroyer in the Kriegsmarine, or rather would have been had it not been cancelled after the order due to a lack of resources. The Z49 in the film is a... ...Tugboat called the Proteo with fake turrets and pyrotechnics mounted on it for the movie. During filming it was serving as a salvage tug for the Italian Navy, but in 2004 it was sold to the Bulgarian navy where it continues to sail today. Not advised for addition to the game.

    Contrary to the first poster I've personally found the Lazo to be a balanced ship, trading some DPM over its tiermate Shchors for better protection and range. The belt armor is nothing to write home about in thickness, but has decent coverage when angled. Granted, you still want to be making use of your range rather than trying to tank shell hits. The spotter plane though gimmicky has allowed me to practice and improve my spotter shooting. Comes with the usual excellent ballistics and turret handling. AA leaves something to be desired. I'm currently trying to maintain an average damage in excess of 70000, and my current solo winrate exceeds 80% though the latter is definitely partly due to luck. Overall, a comfortable damage farmer when used right. Generous for Wargaming to give it away free, but optional none the less, nowhere does it say you need to force yourself to work for it though if you're a decent to good player or at least familiar with the play-style, you'll probably appreciate it. Anyone who thinks it is bad probably hasn't played a Russian midtier cruiser before, she definitely holds her own. Some of my favorite Lazo games to date below.

    Another teaser, IJN DD - NOT with 100 mm

    I don't know what on earth this is but as far as I'm concerned it's entirely made up. Guess they played everyone. It has a more historically accurate bow and stern than the actual Shimakaze ingame too

    Another teaser, IJN DD - NOT with 100 mm

    Still tending towards Shimakaze. They recently remodelled Yamato and as I said earlier the current Shimakaze model is very old and inaccurate, as opposed to a new ship.

    Another teaser, IJN DD - NOT with 100 mm

    I believe it's called a Blast Bag, and the proportions of the gunhouse are accurate to the IJN 12.7cm/50 Type 3. The 10cm would have a shorter gunhouse. Photos showing Shimakaze (forget the actual gunhouses, even on the wreck they are utterly destroyed) are already rare, so...

    Another teaser, IJN DD - NOT with 100 mm

    If you look carefully at the form of this ship, from the bow form to the bridge to the aft superstructure that does not extend forward of the mainmast to the line of the stern and the proportions of the barrels, it's almost certainly the Shimakaze. A remodel would make sense given the existing Shimakaze model is dated and very inaccurate.
