    Ban the bots on SEA server

    Hi fair enough thread to, Ok my 5 cent addition to this., Possibly should be its own thread. But relevant to this one. There needs to be an element in the game that verifies a players win rate status. I have seen players with clear signs of decent game play if not upper echelon. as is evident by their emblems on bages when view id in teams list. But yet during game you're left with a whole lot of questions, that you can not logically answer, as they exhibit such an utter lack of skill you cant help but check their stats after the game. Then you see a win rate of 42% ... How can you have the most epic badge in that class your currently sailing in and then its for sustained damage over so many battles! and then .. utterly fail and not even angle. A bot some sort of crawler That checks the stat and win rate trends. If that win rate trend plummets consecutively on a previously well stat player.. Then clearly something is going on there. Next step that would go along with a suspect sold account would be a change of authentication and or email address.. right its Logic. So plummeting win rate change of account details around the same time the account w/r dived. thats all two constraints to search for nice and light, Then 1) flag that account for observation ...it might be their first time in a line such as smokeless dd with high skill ceiling and unfamiliar mechanics 2) track the progression of its w.r If the win rate doesnt start to improve with a skilled player in other class then the likely hood is its utter noob, bought account is higher %. Flag it for who if anyone takes care of illegal traded accounts. Ask account in email some Automated questions... Please verify your previous email or authentication details, Perhaps the seller used a different email than they used on the account. Perhaps the seller used bots to farm account then sell it and now is using the same email account, people can get lazy,. If they dont play because scared of authority after that time then .. likely hood is again higher % of noob bought account vs getting grind on regular player struggling with unfamiliar play style and as regular back at grind day after day until get good. 07
  2. Hello Can someone please explain to me why Skane, the T7 EU DD, is all to frequently the only ship or two that is T7 in the entire team. Im not sure what the exact % of this is, in my case, but im pretty sure its near 90%, if not higher! Even with a less than 10 point captain I got match against way more T8 and T9 games as bottom T. There is no 4 out of 10 games you will be scammed into being bottom T with Skane. Shes near a 90% bottom (if not higher) I can not actually recall the last time i was not the only T7 or one of less than 3 most often 2 - or the only in single dd games. Is it because of the event where in the campaign you need to get the next T8 to complete tasks, so its made stupidly hard to get that? "You have to earn it" yeah sure, while getting consistent troll mm. As bottom T against T8 CV, they will focus you as an easy kill, thats perfectly logical tactic.... and with your relatively poor AA and concealment, that CV will drop fighter on you for longer spotting. The rockets from a T8 Cv can take out 1/3 if not more of your HP, even when you're not broadside.. thats some dispersion.. those other CV get, i might add. Loonger version time to read, Horror story, what a waste of time and a complete and utter bad troll game / joke in Skane. In a recent game I played, we had two skane both bottom T of course as per normal. Against two dd with superior concealment and smokes. Against 3 in a division from the same clan whom were better than any clan in my team AND Two in a division that were in one of the top teams if not the top team on the server None of our team mates had a win rate worthy of facing them.... Skane(s) was forced to run as out spotted by both enemy dd and secondary fire from T8 / T9 BB Perma spotted and focussed on by T8 CV. Ah, i just remembered, there was also a Radio Locate on me in that one, just to make it more fun and engaging... Turkey shoot. I ask you honestly they had every single advantage in every shape and form. THERE WAS 0 COUNTER PLAY At games like that the saying comes to mind "Does WG actually play their own game". These matches is why there is no 40% of the time you'll be bottom tier in any 10 games. The thing about spreadsheets .. they lag hard. Skane is if not ALWAYS bottom T sure enough 90% bottom T, I cant recall not being bottom T in her and one of 2 or less T7 frequently.. And with match making like that who needs premium time signals or to spend. Thanks please investigate this seemingly biased match making % with cursed skane at T7 vs majority T8 / T9 How about when youre bottom T there is more at bottom T instead of 90-95%% the Team is higher...90% the games Its actually worse than the old T8 ships and match making...As a comparison for any captains that remember that dreaded T. Thanks for your time.

    De sink

    Sorry to say WG WOWS is unplayabe for me in its current format. Its bad enough getting HE farmed by an Alaska, while im sailing along trying to angle for what its worth in a yama - with legendary mod. Where i miss every shot waiting the better part of 30 seconds to miss again. It wasn't until the Alaska got to 12.6km that i actually got a hit - IN thin air in front of the target! Even tho trying to compensate for de-sink! aint sinking anything! I was aware of Desynch, only recently, after quite some time thinking i was getting worse at this game... In that Alaska game i was even trying to compensate for it.. But a yama with Cruiser range ...or worse to get a hit .. with the upgrade module. missing until <13km.. The Alaska wasnt even being particularly evasive.. until going behind an island.. at which point where it came out it was <13km.. But just now again.. Testing yama in bots, as a test I watched yama HE <7km hit a DD The salvo had one shell hit about 2/3rds back on the ship. It physically stopped paused - sitting there all yellow and such on the bots dd deck for a notable amount of time.... Indeed this was even evident on the Replay Moreover, the shell appeared on the deck of the enemy bots DD for a far lesser time in the replay, than actual game play live. I'm sorry despite how the game looks, great job art department, the rest of it pretty much sucks. Including in particular the match maker - which is certainly is absolutely nothing to do with "players in your range" Certainly in at least as in as in skill level.. Evident by the 10 min games and therefore higher turnover of signals camo and services fees // oh.. of concern is the abundance of one sided matched more than 40%. A recent game with a divi of two VOR T8 team mates (top clan) - enemy with radar, T8 CV, im radio located and also outspotted in a freaking skane.. and our other dd guess what also had no smoke.. getting hit by secondaries from a bb thats barely inside my gun range.. Note skane no smoke Absolutely everything was against that team. Notably after the match the team line up revealed yet another one sided travesty at least based on ranks and emblems of skill in so many dmg over 100 games etc.. They also had another divi of 3 also from a not noob team .. how about giving our team one of the smoke dd instead of 2 with and 2 without. How about giving our team the divi of 3 exp players vs 2 of the Top teams! Vor players! Instead of all of them in the same team - with the ships that had radio locate, radar, cv and all the experience. To be blunt the one sided F fest are getting tiresome. But this now cant even hit ships! despite often that sort of trash match maker, really makes playing this title at this time utter pointless. Couldnt even play ranked if i wanted to, I wouldnt go in already handicapped, therefore only for my own fun, hoping to get carried, while making other players roles harder.. id be a liability.. being that player well, thats certainly not cool, or considerate of those others trying to rank. Nothing about that will be fun or engaging Please Ive seen posts going back to 2015 regarding desync - its 5 years later, like isnt it time you addressed it, especially as its starting to cost you players, yes more players are only a advertising campaign away.. and throw some free stuff at them. But itd be better if you had a game that wasnt broken and people actually wanted to come play, instead of having to be bribed.

    Patch .9.4

    Dear WG Taking a little time out of the game to drop a line and say the patch changes to the port and the other recent patches, as in the mounting of signals is a very good thing! So glad its finally happened and well done to the team! Now if we could just get that language pack, the ones you can buy premade and integrate them into the chat server , so english aren't left reading [][][] box or squares in the chat! Im rather certain WG can purchase these language packs premade. I heard some mention of translations software quite some time ago 2 or so years past. At that time the Asia server was still under 10k players online and now its got 23k online at time.. and at times (rarely) match could not be made server to busy. Surely, that amount of players makes this something []L[]a[n][g][]u[]a[]g[]e[] translation software to be addressed more seriously.. It would greatly enhance the non asian speaking / typing nations chat experience and interactions. moreover Many Asian countries learn English at school, but they don't learn the vast and varied writing of other nations many are speakers of 3 languages. So can still read English or parts they recall from school learning. Even a quick google search leads me to the microsoft store that translates these languages which are relevant, to the Asia server and many others languages. Translator supports the following languages:  , Cantonese (Traditional), , Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Fijian, Filipino, French,, Hindi, Hmong Daw, , Indonesian, , Japanese, , Klingon, Korean, , , Malagasy, Malay, , Russian, Samoan,Spanish, , Tahitian, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Tongan, Vietnamese. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/translator/9wzdncrfj3pg?activetab=pivot:overviewtab There all the hard works done for you! make some mass licensing deal for chat servers. or Just offer Bill gates a couple of Free T6 premium ships and a year of Premium game time in exchange! Thanks 07
  5. Hello, Im in RU crusier some maps i can sit mid cap i can radar 3 caps at once with one consumable use. This is not healthy for game play. On behalf of DD and front line ships they are useless nothing happens. If dd try to cap, they get radar hit and decap lose hp for nothing. If not outright killed. You have dd sitting to far back from cap, it doesnt want to get 12km radar spotted, then hunted by CV. So dd wont even spot cos of mega radar often. Ive seen non shima games, where the T8+ dd is actually further back than the BB... The radar cruiser camped with its AA fending off any CV planes which are trying to remove said radar ship from camping. Then big fat ships, barely moving from spawn more than a square or 2, sitting at max firing at range. Those BB's dispersion at near max, being least effective as possible. Those same BB end up camping in the open, waiting for something to get spotted which isn't happening. Then Shooting other bb that will only heal x 3 or 4 .. and nothing still happens.. This game is getting more stagnant. As a side note, id like to see this 0 warning a cap is being taken if the ship is not spotted in the cap. This means no Changing cap color as enemy takes it. it gives away to much information. Oh radar now! CV OH send plane! DD - OH F again!! 5k hp gone from rockets despite near unicum levels of wasd hax. Removing that cap change color PERHAPS mightn't be popular AT FIRST, but It would sure add some game play and fun factor! Not just being given free intel, at no risk to anyone but the capping side. Youre actually getting penalized for trying to progress your points taking 100% of the risk factor. Alternatively you hurry up and wait, see who will noob out first. (not looking at Jean Bart's trolls at all) or dies from boredom. As theres to much information when it comes to caps. Radar, Planes, mini maps last known location and the increasingly rare counter play dd, OH lets not forget radio locate! Because now days nothing happens, until someone goes stir crazy from boredom and yolo. Or freemium premium noobs funsies / runs out and dies from boredom. This 24km, or 12km each side of ship radar range, isnt helping that situation, only increasing stagnating game play, thus its becoming less fun and less engaging. The only difference being which side will noob out first. TLDR Plane spot cap Radar spot cap(s) DD can counter DD - but even that is becoming less of a thing thanks to plane and radar. Radio Locate Mini map Last know position and then soon after cap is being taken it changes color .. easy.. Enemy has to do nothing to know whats going on .. .brilliant! Nothing happens at caps "In our game" This is what it has evolved to. Stop so many radar ships... sometimes 5 a game! Nerf 12km radar to 10km. "For game play sake" Thanks have a pleasant and safe day.

    10 Reasons Not To Invite Friends

    Hello wonderful community, As the title suggest 10 reasons why not to Invite Friends to play WOWS 1) One side match maker with feeder team mates Continuing on from above 2) no actual game play or chance to win what so ever, Even sinking 4 yourself still they throw, run and and die just dont have a clue at all T9 T10. 3) The sole mechanic in the game is for the following reason To have you burn through your T 2 consumables, any signals and camo you have equipped. Then repeat that over and over in multiple one sided loss, despite how amazingly well you do, as quickly as possible. 10-12 minute games... You dont need any more reasons, although RU bias ship lines - Only Need to play one nation - Soon gets boring. Tiresome loss streaks- agane no matter how well you do, as i see the brave faces of unicum streamers even suffer this and stoically continue to put a brave face to the public... Match make sucks, losing streaks because of totally one sided teams... look i dont need to see the win rates of every individual player and put them on a spreadsheet for the world to see, its obvious enough just looking at the ranked imbalance and quick glance at the color of the Clans name their players are in vs mine ... all to often a one-sided affair. Why on Earth would i invite a friend, someone who trust my opinion and respects and likes me to these situations... i dont want them to hate me for wasting their time. or waste their cash downloading something they'll likely just uninstall. Plenty of other fun and engaging non BS one sided match making games out there where you do actually have a chance and its not up to you solely to have and absolute stunning game every game just o even have a vague chance with team mates that are only there to feed the enemy and tick over another game quickly ALL because its to get economy ticking over for WG... like WTH is that... its the only reason there would be such utter trash deliberate and recently reverted T8 match maker... simply because WG profits from it.... but its to much. So greed WG you burn those who support you to much they leave... and many more are on the edge of saying bye to this title every day... like now all but about 8 of my full clan are 100+ days afk.. ding dong warning signs... theres probably 1000 other clans out there if not more the same.. When I leave, which probably cant be soon enough for WG as I have often posted negative comments about the way the game is run from the players perspective, there wont be a single nice thing left to say, except pretty pictures, total scam price store and corrupt match making, for rapid game turn over of signals consumables etc.. for WG profit. tldr? idc have a nice day.

    T8 Scuffed agane?!

    Update Future of this game to much radar (sick nerf worcester so it cant stealth radar then bring in more RU 12km radar liek what the actual F WG) fire the people that are coming up wiith your new ideas .. they are making only more problems... you obviously havent thought this through properly, now have you... 1 Line Russians. Thats it... no need to cash... Kinda shooting yourself in the foot while nerfing others to increase sales, not an uncommon tactic in any online game... sadly. Match maker continuing to do its thing since first post, but now its only teams of useless bots in one-sided pvp battles. There is getting less and less reason to long in every patch ...every day. sure send me a free ship in 90 days.. ill look at it get bored and ditch the game agane... waste of WG resources like most hte other players do who've left. New Pc for me, cant come soon enough, time to ditch this title, there is literally only biased RU line and one-sided matches. as matched with dead head team mates at T9 / T10.. bought accounts or bots.. either way they have 0 clues.

    T8 Scuffed agane?!

    Yo What gives, I swear I've gone like 9/12 games bottom T when sailing T8. Playing DD facing X CV that can one shot half HP (no i dont sail around with AA on!) Facing as Many as 5 RADAR X ships!!! when playing a DD Come on WG get your shipt together man, its like the bad old T8 days, doid you guys try and sneak the old match maker back in??? Because match making is really sucking hard at the moment!! Its Not Oh 4 out of 10 games.. youll get F over by mm ....its one long never ending bottom T again and against Way to many higher T radar ships and numerous games with X CV... ITS NOT FUN or engaging!!!
  10. Sorry but what utter garbage. Do you not see the 3 x Rank 1 players Do you not see that we have 4 ranked players Do you not see they have only 1 player who isnt ranked. do you not see that our lowest ranked is higher than there worst ranked With such an imbalance, you will find your team mates melting away and you get focused on, its a sheer weight of incoming fire vs what you can out put, skill doesnt even become a factor. On my other account, currently with only some 70 odd pvp battles, I have a 68% win rate.. One player can not carry against such one sided match making in a TII dd with a 4.5km torp range and a 5.5km detection range.. Vs a team with all at least some skill... Lets put the shoe on the other foot WHO give the positions reversed and you were playing would want to be on the team with 4 ranked players, who all have superior ranks, to your teams only 4 ranked players, in T2 vs number of T3 ships.. Id politely suggest it would be only the delusional, unicums and no lifers.
  11. This is the start no doubt of a long list of oh so many numerous and broken one sided match making examples. ITS NOT FUN AND ENGAGING getting one sided battles 80% the time in the enemy favor! I have no clue how the match making inner working function. but I AM WAY TO FAMILIAR to the point of exasperation with the match making service its corrupt or broken or a mixture of the two. So here on this Low Tier match I start my long long list of one sided matches, that arent fun, that arent engaging that you know are over as soon as you see the player in the enemy team and their ships. Unsurprisingly the only surprising thing is the extremely rare occurrence where your team is outclassed on paper but actually pulls through. So here I will start this no doubt long hall of shame of decidely one sided match making screen shots as undeniable evidence of one sided match making that really makes the game so less desirable AND will only encourage the oh F it out gunned, more radar w/e the enemy has more of run out and die. I can count the number of close battles in the past week on one finger... and it would be the middle one! WG you should be ashamed of this sort of match making, repeatedly, its no error or one off! Please explain WG how this match making works! in the first image!! and EVEN AT TII Do not, for one iota, dare to consider replying that this is an anomaly or a rare occurrence. I and the rest of the player base endures this sort of thing all to consistently battle after battle! Its TROLL, its a perfect example of why to recommend someone to avoid playing one if not all your titles. Im not anti WG or anti the game, however I ahve a great issue with constant one sided match making where im forced to be in teams that have a lower skill base than the others. Doing well to improve your own score and Git Gud becomes a near impossibility. Why when you find yourself out flanked out gunned and in youre in the lower T ships, again consistently. These are not one off events, being mentioned by a single player - who incorrectly is thought of as anti WG, rather than pointing out an issues that is widespread a very well known issue by the regular players and something that harms the game from growing... as players get put in multiple loss streaks commonly of 5 to 7 in a row.. if not more... and when you look after match at the team line up, the issue becomes glaringly obvious it was a one sided match up to start with. This happens over and over and over and over again! Day after day this happens to me, others and content creators who experience multiple loss streaks - those guys play your games for a living!! and are near in not already unicum level! Even they get troll game and loss after loss scenarios.. Thanks for making that obvious it wasnt just me, or isolated incidences, in the first place twitch! Public, potential new players, sees unicum level players going through multiple loss streaks oin twitch and think errrm.. why do i want to even download that game play that game. and so it begins...

    MM still ignores radar?

    Hi, MM broken never! says WG We dont see a problem and never have, and still dont see the problem with T8s that had to Vs T10. Because we stunted player economy means we gain got it! makes new account not even 6 days old T5 omaha Cant even equip camo yet, account to new. FACING MAJORITY OF ENEMY TEAM T7 that HAVE CAMO out of 12 players we have 5 ranked players they have 9 we have 2 rank 1 .. they have 3 rank 1 players... the remaining majority of more rank players they have, have a better rank than ours! So even our ranked players over all are worse... THAT ACCOUNT IS NOT EVEN 1 WEEK OLD HOW IS THAT GOING TO ENCOURAGE NEW PLAYERS TO WANT TO STAY MAYBE JUST MAYBE IF WG FIXED ITS CONSISTENTLY SEEMINGLY RIGGED MATCH MAKING, "SO YOUR ECONOMY IS SCUFFED DELIBERATELY" - its no secret WG! ^ on those times when you stack special signals and good camo and then: 1) get clowns for team mates 2) out matched, more premiums or superior ships / more and better handling / range ( or as noted in the title above more radar) 3) enemy teams get early deva strike is also atypical 4) Enemy CV consistently / often has an achievement badge (showing at least some skill in the game) but yours NEVER has. If WG fixed that sort of thing, maybe just maybe players would stay... Instead of putting a 5 day old account, in a T5 ship, against teams with majority T7. T7 with the advantage of superior armor, guns, range and penetration values and a T6 CV's VS no camo T5 omaha with only 2-3 at T5 on enemy team, a couple of T6 and vast majority (T7 - hi Atlanta!) Being anything other than cannon fodder and easy points for the other team is a delusion. Try give me that trash about "but if you play in higher Tier you get more points!". waah BS! You still have a higher % of losing!! You lose you earn less! Handicapped as a individual player by ship T and your trying to damage a II Tier higher ship. A enemy with a more skill points captain and they can use camo so you have worse dispersion. The enemy has every advantage. The other ships at your T, that you actually have a fighting chance against, is on opposite far side of map again! That account also frequently faced a number of opposing players who had the collectors emblem / badge and things denoting vast experience over any newbie coming to the game... Looking at my team, less ranked, those that were are worse ranked vs enemy over all, number of starter badges vs seasoned players with at least some obvious skill.. My matches majority were closer to literal noobs, in the polite sense of being actually new. Play style of "Chickens running around with head chopped" off game play vs obviously more seasoned players. There i am in T5 vs T7 in a position to contribute the least.. and suffer the most. Fun and enraging game play I sure want to play this every day... I really want to tell my friends and my online face book clan of some 200+ players (all with their own contacts) which plays and discuss's many different games and talks about them in detail there. Tell them all about WG and its business practices.. and invite them to play lmao "not like this". I really want to purchase a single ship for the cost of a triple A title now, dont I! Especially given everything I'd have experienced as a new player. WG at this stage you have 2 options 1) Take a step back from your titles, take a broader picture of this. Look at it from the outside as a new player and what they encounter and then adapt. 2) Stick your head up your assets and deny anything / everything! In its arrogance and to think that this is nothing more than yet another one of those "for some inexplicable but all to frequent" rants by yet another of so very many, many players is an over sight and dismissive at WG's own cost. Not adapting will continue to run WG business into the ground and handicap WG growth, while continually wasting "Free" items on 90 day inactive accounts. Good day. P.S I don't mind if your brain melted having to read more than 5 lines in a post, or if its not grammatically correct :3
  13. Hi So today i was messing around doing a lot of the 200% first win of days in bots. After sometime i thought id check on the progress of the PR build in its shipyard, to see how far the next stage was from completing. If i recall correctly, somehow while i was in that PR shipyard , the select ships for battle ribbon was still visible. So while in the PR build screen,i selected the next in line of the 200% wins ships I was going to play, from the ribbon. When i selected the ship, Queen Elizabeth, the PR shipbuilding progress screen closed. I was taken to the port screen. However this is where things get interesting. The regular premium port screen appeared at first to me to be zoomed in. Like when you mount signals. However a long crane type or dark metal structure was filling up most of the screen. Not 100% sure, but perhaps the view angle was actually level at the middle of the horizon . Finding that view angle somewhat annoying, I tried to rotate the camera view without success. So I then clicked on the port button. I was thinking that would reset to the default camera angle and the view of the (Queen Elizabeth) would be shown. To my bemusement the picture attached is a snapshot of what i seen, after clicking the "Port" button. I only took a quick snap shot, as you do for weird things, and then selected a random ship the Jean Bart and she showed in the screen as normal. The port has behaved fine all day, although a number of games later I did experience a random crash at end of game close and chose the terminate option. Later on today, I had mentioned this bizarre port happening in "Off Topic" chat. Someone their suggested I post it on the forums "the community would be interested in it" so here it is. If its strange, it will happen to me, this is only another example of it. . It happened I took a screen shot, selected another ship which appeared fine and could mount signals on fine and camera angles everything was as normal. The only thing being an issue with crash a number of games later and those games seemed normal. And community, please don't troll or think its more PR drama or some photo shop type things gone on. I don't have the skill or the time, i'm too busy grinding shipt! I don't need bonus drama. Its 100% as the screen shot was, with only a edit of my clan and user ID and that's just so pitas (pain in the ass) don't ask me questions about this 2 years later. Please dont ask me, did I do this or that, I don't know anything other than whats written above as to what happened. It's just a snap shot to me. everything works fine! Only thing left to say is Happy New Years !
