    Fun while it lasted

    Maybe we can sell our fleets for scrap. 😄

    Discontinuation of macOS Support

    Yes, I'm pissed off too. Luckily I haven't spent too much on premium ships. Their support for Mac users was not too good anyway - there were quite a few occasions when the game kept crashing after updates. At one stage I didn't play for a month or two because it would crash whenever I was in queue for a battle or just wouldn't open at all. In spite of those problems I was hooked. Actually I get so involved sometimes that friends and family were telling me I should stop playing before I have a heart attack. 😄

    Yeah, very annoying. Judging by past updates it won't be long before update 10 arrives. Fortunately I've only purchased a few premium ships - I feel your pain. 😡

    Fun while it lasted

    A pop up on the start up screen today saying Macs would no longer be supported when update 10 hits. Support was pretty lousy quite a few times anyway (had to give WOWS away for a few months at one stage when games would crash before I even had a chance to make a move or the game just wouldn't open). Will plug away until they pull the plug - might even try a few unorthodox things seeing I don't have to worry about repercussions. Well it was fun while it lasted although the continual tweaking and weird special events got a bit much sometimes (along with the bugs after every update). Lucky I didn't throw too much money away getting premium ships. Sayonara

    Lag when firing guns

    Anybody else finding there's sometimes an appreciable lag between hitting the fire button and guns actually firing? I seem to be experiencing it quite a bit lately and it seems to usually happen at critical moments - I'm battling an enemy ship at close range and both of us only need to get off one more salvo to sink the other and my guns don't fire when I hit the button (on occasion I have hit it more than once) and while I'm trying to get my guns to fire the enemy fires and sinks me. Maybe servers can't handle the workload? Very irritating when it happens.

    Happy Birthday, World of Warships!! Tier VII Challenge.

    Some captains obviously got into the naval academy without being able to read. 😁

    Anyone else have this issue?

    I got no warning at all - until I had tried 3 battles and there was finally a small window in Port saying some of us may be having trouble entering battles. By that time I'd used up several signal flags (and didn't get any restored after it finally started working again).

    Disconnecting Issues

    Back on line now. However they haven't removed the penalties incurred while trying to have a battle. Not too worried about that as I can just play a few games to return from 'Pink' status. I am annoyed though that they aren't restoring signal flags I used trying to have a battle. 🤨

    Sorry, this was the post I thought I was replying to before.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    Working again now and no, they didn't delete the penalty points. Not that worried about that, just have to play a few games until I'm not pink anymore, but I am annoyed that they haven't restored signal flags used while trying to play.

    Disconnecting Issues

    Something's started going wacky today. I have tried about 4 times to play a co-op game and each time, while I'm in the queue, I'm suddenly taken to one of the start up windows where the options are 'Connect' or 'Change Account'. I hit connect and I'm back in the Port and have been penalised for 'Inactivity'. I am up to about an 8 battle penalty for something which was not of my doing. Getting bloody annoyed.

    Guns locked on sector

    I haven't had this happen to me for a long time and I can't remember how I accidentally did it OR how to get out of it. I was chasing an enemy BB and had him in my sights a number of times and fired and couldn't work out why none of my shells were appearing anywhere . Finally I got a notification that my guns were locked on a sector. I must have accidentally hit a key it the heat of battle but for the life of me I couldn't remember which key and even when I randomly hit keys to try to unlock them nothing happened and the battle was over before I found the right key. WOWS doesn't seem to have an easy to find site which lists ALL keys and what they do (even typing the question into search brought up no results), so could somebody please remind me what key causes this (and more importantly what key unlocks the sector). As far as I'm concerned locking your guns on a sector is of little or no use and being able to override it easily should be part of the basic control instructions.

    [0.9.4] [Potential Fix] Problems with the opening of the Armory

    Is there a fix for Mac users? As far as I can see we can't access WOWS game root folder - we are directed through Wargaming game client64 which doesn't appear to have any way of adding patches. I must say I am getting sick of not being able to add to my signals etc. (except for the rare time when I am able to make one purchase before it freezes again). Since the last update, trying to access the Armoury has even resulted in the whole game crashing. I suppose the only bright side is that I am not tempted to spend money buying premium ships. 😄

    0.9.3 Bug Report Thread

    Well, I am able to enter battles normally again, so hopefully the problem has been fixed. Still annoyed about getting reprimanded for non participation in a battle I was unable to enter though - I thought WOWS would be capable of seeing that a player was locked out of a battle because of a server problem.

    0.9.3 Bug Report Thread

    Yesterday I was twice taken out of a queue for a battle and got a message saying I had been taken out of the queue because of a technical problem with the server. Decided to try again later in the day and got to the stage where I could no longer leave the queue but the battle didn't start and I was unable to return to port. I clicked on the various spots on screen after waiting for some time, just to see if I could escape and at one stage it brought up an image like the mini map showing my teams fleet moving but still nothing I could do. Eventually I had to force quit to get out of the app. Opened WOWS today and find I have been reprimanded for inactivity and will be further penalised if it happens again. Thanks a lot WOWS! ☹️ Now I'm not sure whether to try another battle at the moment. Also others are finally starting to report problems accessing the Armoury. I have been having that problem for at least a month now and I reported it at one stage but nothing happened (and nobody else commented about that problem, so I assumed it was another case of a problem for Mac users and wasn't worth WOWS's trouble to look at). It used to be that I could sometimes get into the Armoury but it would freeze after one transaction and I'd have to return to Port, but the past few days i have been unable to get into the Armoury at all. I am using the Wargaming.net.Game Center by the way and Wargaming game client64.
