    So got this the other day

    This is getting weird. Now the game thinks my Vampire is in a battle even though I just finished a battle with it. What's going on WOWS??

    So got this the other day

    And because the connection dropped out while I had team killer status I'm now restricted to 10 co-op battles!!

    So got this the other day

    And now the servers lost my connection again while my clemson's still in a battle! Come on WOWS, this is bullshit!

    So got this the other day

    This is absolutely spot on! I keep getting put on losing teams, I'll win my end of a domination battle, turn around and discover that the rest of the numptys have all gotten themselves killed. You'd expect it to happen occasionally but when it happens game after game it's a bit much. It's incredibly frustrating. Now I've just logged on to discover I've been given a 3 match teamkiller status because my connection dropped out at the start of a game last night and I've been penalised for leaving the game early! Come on! I mean I've gotten that status before because numptys have driven under my guns while I'm engaging a target in binocular mode, and I've received that status because some of these idiots repeatedly run into me, but this is the first time I've got it for literally doing nothing.
  5. It's overly sensitive now, I'm getting pinged a lot lately for unsportsmanlike play because I'll be banging away in binocular view and some idiot will run right in front of me and cop a load of rounds that I'm trying to send downrange. I got T-boned yesterday and pushed onto a boundary by an "ally" while firing, hey presto, I get a team killer penalty.

    Who deserve to die quicker?

    The a-holes who wrote the hit dynamics code. I just got through another game where every broadside or ripple I fired just sprayed out to twice the targets length while their return fire came in in these dense little balls less than half my boat length wide from the same fucking range. It's bullshit.

    Has anyone faces the same frequent client crash after 0.7.4?

    I was getting this issue a lot starting with 7.4 and up through the sub releases. Had a long back and forward with support about it (they were great by the way). Sent off what felt like dozens of crash reports and config check files. It was killing me, game would crash out as soon as I got to the port screen. Sometimes sooner, sometimes I'd actually get into a game and then, bang, blank screen. It was driving me crazy. What actually solved the problem for me was cleaning out the PC. No joke. My rigs a few years old, I put in a new graphics card a year or so ago but otherwise pretty stock. To look at it, it didn't look all that dirty. I got one of those compressed air cleaning cans and blew as much dust and crud as I could out of all the heat sinks, especially the graphics card and power supply. Low and behold, the problem went away, no more crashes. Your mileage may vary of course, but give it a try.

    Tier II Detected Q

    I frequently sink guys with blind fire. I've found sometimes, don't laugh, that it's actually better not to watch where your shot lands. I frequently get better results if I don't. Fire and forget, if you will. I frequently get that thing too where, just as your guns finally train around to the target, you lose sight/track of them. I'll "project" based on last sighting and fire off a salvo. Frequently hits, frequently get more citadels and one time in five or ten, boom, sink them.

    I figured out why this game does not work

    No it's the usual reasons, I keep hitting or bracketing targets but do minimal or no damage. Enemy ships citadel me every couple of shots (even on occasion repeatedly hitting me with both BB barrels in single shot mode, despite me randomly jinking back and forward). *Unlucky* me, boo-hoo, we've all heard the tale. That said though, it does get bloody tiring after a while. See this is the thing about the RNG. If it works as suggested, then it doesn't matter how pin-point accurate your aiming is because, with the RNG and CEP, nothing is going to hit anywhere near that aim spot anyway. If the RNG works as everyone says it does then it can't. By the same rate, if your aim is a bit off, the RNG will effectively *correct* your aim for you about 30-40% of the time. Statistically, it must. If it works as advertised then the only way to separate pin point accurate aimers (who manage to successfully predict target changes of course unerringly) and people who are only say, 80% accurate, would be through statistical analysis - if the RNG works as advertised. I don't know about you but that's not my experience. The other thing is, it isn't consistent between ships or between game sessions. I get in my Leander and I can't miss, I change over to my Carolina and I can't hit. I know the shot dynamics are different between the two weapon types but we're all used to that and compensating for that difference (it only takes a couple of shots to get your "eye in") . Thing is, if I don't play a type for a few weeks (my Kuma for instance), when I go get back in it, for the first four or five games, I'm unstoppable. Then it trails off, more misses, more minimal damage hits. Can my aim atrophy the more I practice? But then why is my aim suddenly so good when I haven't played a type for a while? I kind of caught a taste of it the other day watching one of Jingle's videos too. It was the one where he discusses how overpowered the Belfast is. In the video, the Belfast driver opens up at about half range on a target that's pretty much a sitting duck, Jingles says, "here come some citadels". or words to that effect but then the Belfast driver only gets one or maybe two, despite several salvos and even Jingles is surprised that, despite all the hits in the right section of the target - next to no citadels. Anyhoo, vent over. It is what it is. I return you to your usual service.

    Update 0.6.4 Feedback

    Is it just me or the French cruisers somewhat over-powered? They have, for the most part, 139mm guns and effectively NO armour and yet it seems very hard to do damage to them. At the same time though, it's quite easy to receive a hell of a lot of damage from them (both HE and AP). How is everyone else finding them?
  11. Wow guys, what a mess! Love the game but this update: UI elements missing, can and then can't select boats. Did you test the release? Did you release the right release?! Really looking forward to the explanation and the fix.

    Just how random is random?

    Thanks for the replies guys. Complaining obviously does the trick because when I next went in, -hey presto- winning, supportive, cooperative teams! It was like a miracle - or something ;D Flemboy - At a guess I'd say they're totaling ship/captain experience across the teams so experince levels in total are about the same. Unfortunately, if you've got a boat/captain combination with a lot of xp, that boat/captain will represent the lion's share of the teams experience quota - hence teams that are seemingly full of noobs except for one or two guys.

    Just how random is random?

    Has the team selection algorithm been "massaged" lately? The last twenty games at least (random battles) whatever tier my ship is is the bottom tier of the fight (ie me tier 4 game 4,5,6, me tier 3 game tier 3,4), it's a tedious complaint I know but how random can it be if you continuously wind up being in the least capable ships? Additionally, It seems like I'm always in the noob team. The other side operates with super-human efficiency while my guys inevitably either run away or run into a swarm of enemy ships without support. In the last twenty or so games I've played, I've been on the winning side once. Once! Say what you like but that isn't "random". While I'm here I can complain about the damage model as well which seems to be bullshit recently. Second to last game, me in a T4 kuma vs T5 emerald. I got three citadels on him and did 2000 damage, he hit me with one and I detonated. Seems to be happening every second or third game, If it was just the once I'd say, oh well too bad, but this is getting monotonous. Seems like every game now my damage is undergoing a "modifier".
