    HMS Vanguard Disappointment

    Well said Icy_phoenix! ๐Ÿ™‚

    HMS Vanguard Disappointment

    I agree that matchmaking is a problem regardless of the ship, and I really would like some kind of improvements on it... But as for the ship itself: I have to say that so far I am finding it one of the flat out most *interesting* ships I have played. I will say again that it is NOT easy to use, but it does represent a really unique spin on the normal mechanics and even, as far as I know, even represents a fair bit of the direction that BB's went historically (phasing out layers of armor, adding strong AA, making them faster, more nimble, even smaller guns). I like it ๐Ÿ™‚ I still kinda suck with it, but I like it ๐Ÿ™‚

    HMS Vanguard Disappointment

    Heh, not only did that restore my faith: I actually went out and bought me a Vanguard! I'm still learning to use it effectively (it is NOT an easy to use ship) but so far I have to say it has been an interesting experience ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks mate!
  4. Hey everyone, I'm gonna preface this with saying that I haven't played with the HMS Vanguard, nor even faced one on the opposing team...but, from a pure stats perspective (and LWM's small review) I have to say that I was really hoping for more. Right now it seems like a very "meh" sort of ship, and I was hoping for something wonderful. I know, I know, that's on me for getting hopes up and all that...still, I just wanted a good solid high tier British premium. Anyone else feel the same way? Maybe there is an actual Vanguard owner or two who can comment with their own experiences?

    Colonisation Intensifies : Vanguard Buffed

    I am now cautiously optimistic about this ship. Before I was very "meh" but now...well, I might actually end up getting her... Here is hoping!

    Terror of the deep 2

    You guys are lucky. I just had two games in a row where my teammates party wiped in the final area and left me trying to take out Rasputin by myself. In all honesty I would be GLAD to finish with 2-3 stars at this point. Having an op end in defeat is just all kinds of frustrating. ๐Ÿ˜ž

    Co-op earnings less than before

    You know I had a similar thread up here once, and I also got a bunch of folks saying: "Just play PVP!!!111 It's a PVP GAME!!111" I get that, I do. But, if I'm going to be honest, I have no actual interest in playing a PVP game. I just straight up don't like PVP. I *do* like world of warships though, and to me playing the co-op mode is just plain good fun (and the operations are also good fun too!) I actually played world of tanks for awhile, and loved the graphics, gameplay, tanks ect...but I simply couldn't stand the lack of co-op. I just flat out don't enjoy playing pvp. If this game had been PVP only then there is simply no way I would have played this long, let alone continue to play. I think that there really are enough players like me and the original poster out there for WG to rethink their co-op system and rewards. I think that none of us are asking for the same rewards as playing PVP (as even I would admit that would be silly,) but just a little bump to make it more profitable would go a long way. Maybe a new mode, a new setting, something...I really don't think that is asking for much. But that is just my opinion.
  10. Greetings everyone! So here is the thing, I've been playing the game for awhile now but, due to my habit of trying to play all the lines/nations pretty much simultaneously, I have just now got my first Tier 7 (non premium) ship unlocked. (In case anyone was wondering: the Gneisenau!) I was quite happy with it, more than a little excited, and now...after all that hard work...I consistently make something like -10k in credits every game I play her with. Now, granted, I'm not the best player in the world, and (perhaps an even bigger issue) I DO pretty much just play co-op...but STILL! The previous tiers have been a bit of a grind to get through, and yeah I have a nice stable of premium ships tiers 4-8 that consistently make me credits, but are we really expected to pay to play our own ships? Isn't that just a little bit ridiculous? I talked a little bit with other people on the game and it seems that I am far from alone in this scenario, and it also seems like to some extent it only gets WORSE at higher levels of play. I can't be the only one that is asking for at LEAST a positive amount of credits with every battle (unless I do really really bad of course, but it seems top 3 in co-op shouldn't be "penalized by the game" level of bad...) Anyway, this has been frustrating me lately and I wanted to see what the rest of the community had to say about it. Good luck and smooth seas everyone!

    Alternate IJN Battleship line

    I love this idea, and have been saying there should be dedicated battlecruiser type lines for awhile now. I also love the amount of care and research that obviously went into the original post. Well done! You got my vote ๐Ÿ™‚

    Co-op expansion plans?

    I agree with the OP about...well, pretty much everything. The fact is that when I play random battles I just flat out don't have FUN. Primarily: I play this game to have fun. To me: Co-op is fun...and so I have played co-op almost exclusively for some time now. I think that the scenarios are a great addition to the game, and I tend to play them a lot (although they all get old after awhile,) but I think that newer, more varied modes would also be a welcome addition. I don't even think we need anything super different or gimicky, just a harder version of co-op (more bots maybe?) would be appreciated. Also: for those like me (and we ARE out there,) who do almost exclusively co-op...can we PLEASE get some better rewards? I'm logging in and doing my time and at the end of the day I make a fraction of what the pvp folks make...and it can be frustrating. But...also...well, at the end of the day I still love the game ๐Ÿ™‚ So, I guess there is that.
  13. I was actually there in this game. It was totally annoying and weird. I ended up waiting the 16min before the game ended just to avoid going pink (again). Seriously, this bug needs fixing.

    The Premium Shop of Disappointment

    I know how you feel mate, (and as a Navy vet myself I will also say: "Welcome aboard!") It can be very frustrating to see the ships you want out there seemingly just beyond reach, but there might be a light at the end of the tunnel. If last year is any indication of what to expect then around new years there will be a BIG sale on all the premium ships, possibly including a lot of hard to find ones as well. I know last year I snagged my sharnhorst and dunkirk there for a pitifully small amount. Whether or not the dreaded Nikolai will be available then is anyone's guess, but I would be surprised if there weren't a few real goodies to be had. Good luck, and fair seas!
  15. Hey everyone! So recently I've decided I wanted to try and be more social on WoWs and join a clan. The problem was that my clan menu just flat out wasn't working for me and kept saying: "service unavailable". This was understandably frustrating and so, after trying a bunch of things, here are the fixes (in order of ease) that I found: 1. Click the "Verify Files and Repair" function on the launcher. This takes a few minutes, usually, but aside from that its very painless. It didn't do anything to fix MY problem, but it has worked for some and, you know, it's easy. 2. Make sure you are running the game as an administrator This is almost as easy as the first one, really only requiring a few clicks, but might be a bit trickier because if you want to be SURE it is working you should launch the game from the direct launcher (in your C:/Games/WorldofWarships folder, or wherever you put it.) Again: this didn't help me, but it might help some. 3. Ensure your firewall is letting the game through Now this one is a little trickier, and it is going to depend a lot on your firewall settings. The launcher has a feature that can allow the game through with one click, but if you really want to make sure it is working you are going to need to check your individual settings for whatever firewall you might have. 4. [THE ONE THAT WORKED FOR ME] Delete your "Profiles" folder in your World of Warships folder. Now this is the one that actually worked for me. It's a little annoying because you are going to have to do things like set up custom controls and such again, but it actually WORKED and, furthermore, it's what the game's own customer service recommends. What you need to do is go to your World of Warships folder (usually in C:/Games/WorldofWarships) and find the folder marked "profile"...then delete that folder. Simple as that. When you start up the game again (as an administrator, remember,) you might have to put in your password and such again...but it should actually let you access the clans tab, the premium shop, and all that good stuff. And that is pretty much it. I hope you found this little guide helpful, and I sincerely hope that it worked for you. Good luck, and fair seas! -Leerm02
