Do not let weird fake ships in regular games? Saw a green flaming Ghost Ship, making game too unrealistic for me. How do you all feel?

My grandfather was in the US Navy and boxed the British Navy champion and lost in the twenties!

Indifferent.

WoWS is a video game and I treat it as such.

??? what does that have to do with anything? did the bout take place on a ghost ship? To the original poster, there is an option in port to turn off those camos in game so you don't have to suffer seeing some random steampunk ship sailing about. I agree that they are ridiculous which is why I have them turned off. @AntifoulAwl  I actually think it would be pretty cool, perhaps in the cyclone effects' if occasionally a creepy old tall ship just ghosted into your vision for a moment before disappearing. I'd much rather than that a bunch of spaceships firing lasers in game. I'm not looking forward to the next update with its April fools space battles again.

Personally I dont care. However, I'm sure you can toggle these effects with the "additional content" setting in port near the ship carousel.

Imagine it is not an Age of Sail ship but a ghostly Yamato silhouette appearing in the haze. As a cruiser main, that would scare the garbage out of me.

Imagine the storm would mess with the minimap, and it shows one to two BBs right next to me (when I know clearly there is none). Holy balls.

I don’t really care about what camo’s ships have on. The Historically accurate ships are cool, but there’s nothing wrong with a bit of variety. Not as if the rest of the game is that accurate. Otherwise why would a Montana exist? Let along fighting on the same side as Yamato?

When you're focused into the combat, you should only care about things being "friends" or "foes". If you're distracted the appearances of things,... welp.

And there was USS Steward(DD224), which was thought to be a ghost ship by the US.

It was scuttled at Surabaya, Java, 2 March 1942, but signed many time by US sub and aircraft near Japan in 1943 and 1944. at the end of the war. It was found the ship was raised by Japanese and recommissioned as patrol boat.

@blauflamme22, ah, but the Flying Dutchman is a ship of doom.

All who sight her are destined to perish in the near future.

It would work if she quickly came into your sight if you were flooding or burning to death, with no repair.

 

Or even better -as the tinfoil hat brigade believe- when MM assigns you to a losing team, the Dutchman is in the background of your battle loading screen.

Newsflash: The game isn't realistic. If it was, then you'd be seeing Axis powers vs Allies and not them working together.  Play co-op if themed camos bother you and let the rest of us enjoy reaping souls with our Ghost ships!  :cat_paw:
