  1. It's FM. Freakin Magic. To rationalize FM is to question things that are not meant to be questioned.
  2. Memory Leak

    Maybe they will fix it after the CPU/GPU runaway in the Port? Perhaps 2020ish?
  3. Are people okay with this AI?

    This thread fails on every level.
  4. If it would mean that my GPU and CPU would not be nearly maxed out in the Port, I'm all for it. Seriously, how badly is the code that puts more of a demand on the users machine while sitting in port than actually playing the game?
  5. He is going to become Stephanie Seagal.
  6. badges need rework yes or no?

    They should be completely optional so 95% of the population can select the no button.
  7. Nerfing it's credit earnings was a [edited] move. Players had every reason to expect a similar multiple.
  8. The issue for me is that anyone would reasonably assume that it would have the same multiplier as the other tier 9 ship. It obviously is much lower. For example, I had a battle in the Mushy yesterday with 122k damage that netted 357k credits and that is with the 20% flag and discounted clan repair bill. That is a lot less than the mIssy. In short, many people would reasonably come to the conclusion that they were sold a false bill of goods which contributes to undermining Wargamings already dubious reputation for business practices.
  9. So... Why do YOU Play Ranked Mode?

    The primary draw of ranked used to be the rewards. There are no teams, just random sides. I have the Black now but am questioning the effort vs reward now that they have severely limited the rewards. One would think they want to undermine their success.
  10. Running the Akizuki in ranked?

    Definitely not going to take it into ranked until I put a lot more time in it. The only reason for considering not using IFHE is that ranked is limited to tier 8 and I wasn't sure how much of a difference it made there. Like I said, just got the ship so I'm trying to wrap my mind around how playing it in Ranked vs Randoms affects Captain skills and other considerations.
  11. I just picked up the ship and am still figuring it out but it seems to have solid potential in Ranked as something besides my Benson. Any tips on captain skills or tactics? Debating the value of using its stupid long range (15K) to IFHE the the heck out of some ships at times vs a more traditional approach. How helpful is IFHE at tier 8 vs using the 4 points on something else and using the plenty good 12.5 range less so? Before I get the onslaught of noobs criticism, I'm going to run a 19 point captain and some quality time in random battles to get more used to it. I generally do quite well in all types of DD's and have ranked out five times. So, any pro tips of the Akizuki in Ranked?
  12. No new ship for Ranked this season

    With really weak rewards for each tier you gain, and just some camo for winning after just a flag for last season it makes it tough to overlook Ranked gameplay weaknesses and give another season the effort needed to rank out. They still, after multiple seasons of failure have not provided any reason to play the Rank 1 league. I have the Black but I'm not sure if going forward is worth the grief.
  13. While you believe you are the most important person here, no one else does.
  14. Yup! It nearly pegs off one CPU and puts my 880m GPU at 75% plus just sitting there in Port. That's way more than actually playing the game! I can always tell when I forgot to minimize the game as my fans are cranking away and doing a spectacular job of warming up my room. That's why we must be great full to their forethought in providing all their players with such useful space heaters.
  15. Think about how much the player base spends in electricity costs each month due to the CPU and GPU's of their machines getting torqued just sitting there in Port. It does have the added benefit of turning thousands of machines into space heaters. Thanks Wargaming!
