I have question about the Fire Control System mod 1. So, it improves accuracy by 7%. But does that 7% reduction apply to the horizontal axis of the dispersion ellipse (as shown in WoWs client), or the dispersion ellipse area (as one of the devs on the RU forums wrote a while back)?

 

Go check iChase's video on the subject... it seems this module is not exactly what you think it would, should be...

Day 2: Work Begins!

 

Ahoy Captains, today we toured of the SPB office and got to work! 

 

Tomorrow will be the Dev Q&A and I'll share what can asap. We will be recording the session but it will take some time to process and localize. Once I return, I will create a new forum post will everything I can get answered.

 

In the meantime, here are some fun photos from us walking around!

 

There are tons of cool posters around the office but this one is always my favorite. It's from many moons ago when we even had a different name for our game:

What the tool tip actually says is "-7% to maximum dispersion of main battery shells" and "max dispersion" is a reported field in the "main battery" section, so it would be reasonable to think that it actually DOES give ""-7% to max dispersion of main battery shells"

 

Interestingly, when add the module to a Fuso I have in storage (with no modules fitted, A hull, no FC), the reported "max dispersion" drops from 179m to 167m which is 6.7%, which is a pretty good match for the tooltip

 

What really happens under the covers? Who knows?

Note: Edited to correct what tooltip says

Hello   I just played several World of Warships games after the application of the 5.6 update.  4 games played beautifully but on game 5 I was playing an Isokaze class Japanese DD.  All was going well until I got into a very close encounter with another DD.  We were at very close range when we both launched Torpedoes.  My ship was hit first and sunk then my torpedoes hit the other DD and sank it too.  My screen began to flicker rapidly so I switched to spectator mode which after about 1 minute everything locked up.  I couldn't even bring up Task Manager to close out the program.  I had to do a cold reboot of my computer to send this message to you.  Can You tell me what happened and how to fix it.  I never have had any such problem prior to the 5.6 update.

Kitakami was the premium ship I wanted the most :) After reading this https://www.reddit.c...t5pm_est_about/

I really need to go wright that piece on US CV that I've been planning to write for a good while :P

 

Question time will there be any new game modes added soon? Like a wipe out island fortifications while the other team defends it or something like that?

iChase is not a reliable source. If he says stuff that's obviously wrong even about things that are very easy to check in-game (e.g. his claim that DF consumable affects just DP AA guns) -- why would I ever trust him when it comes to something this nuanced?

I know it's 7%. I'm asking whether 7% reduction is applied to horizontal axis of the dispersion ellipse (as the game client seems to suggest), or to the area of the dispersion ellipse (as some of the devs claimed on the RU forum). It's not a huge deal, but I just want to understand dispersion mechanics as well as I can. See, if 7% reduction is applied to the area of the dispersion ellipse, then FCS 1 is nearly useless.

So is the Type 93 mods torps on fubuki, kagero and shimikaze getting removed those notes on the 5.6 patch had me worried even though it didnt happen this patch it makes me put some doubt's on what your planning to do to them since you already nerfed them a hellva lot already to remove those torps is to kill the IJN DD line so my question is Will they get removed in the future or not and if so why do so?

 

They never intended to do those changes to IJN DD, the information just accidently got into the patch notes. It was removed not because they retracted the change due to feedback, but because it was never meant to be there.

Ranked Season 5: Rank 1 with 69% winrate.

What are we going to do about this?

 

Baltimore seems very neglected since her glory days in alpha/beta. Can she get some love?

Today after WG implemented more premiums to tech tree i find wonderfull looking those premium ships event those what i dont buy.

My sugestion: it on some plan add to tech tree all premium ships / even they dont  be able to purchase/ just for watch it?  becauuse some of ships i saw first time /for example molotov and michail look great and it show how much desinger hours was spend. /but maybe its because other tech tree is black and white and premium ships tech tree is colour but its still awsome to look at that ships.

Or marketing plan is you dont pay you dont play and even look on that ?

I only play pve. 2 questions: why ALL bot ship have DD hate and follow them all the game and  do not event shoot at near enemy? Sometimes became a comical battle.

Why we pve players get a lot less money but pay full repair? I am OK with less XP.
