    WHAT did you do to detonations?

    Look in the kill feed above the mini-map. Cleveland killed the Arizona through fire as seen in the icon between the red and green names. Kaga killed me by detonation as seen in the detonation icon between the names, not the detonation Achievement that appears above.

    Mirroed Match Making?

    https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/gamestuff/mirror-mirror/ It tries, but it's not 100% depending on many factors

    Sudden Graphical Downgrade

    hmmm.. Not quite sure unless the Screen resolution changed on you or you weren't in full screen windowed mode prior and now you are? I'm on my work PC so don't have the client available to go through and check the settings, but when I get home I'll check my own setup and the new update to see if anything similar happened on my end.

    Sudden Graphical Downgrade

    Do you remember if you had the Multisample Anti-Aliasing set to 4x? That'd probably be the next thing i'd try. I'm focusing mainly on the T-61 pictures because that looks the most pronounced of the differences between your pictures to me. Especially around the bridge area and the rigging.

    Sudden Graphical Downgrade

    I'd hazard the guess that your Anti-aliasing changed somehowgoing by the blockiness of the rigging lines and where the deck lines meet the hull on the T-61. A screenshot of your graphics settings might help a bit?

    Sudden credit earnings nerf?

    Pfft if that's what it takes to offend people you know they need thicker skin I blame it on the sleep deprivation of 70+ hour work weeks for missing it. But I went back to some older videos stretching from the last few ranked seasons up until this one, had limited time to play this year sadly. Basically didn't see any earning differences based on the scores. Only major one I came across were 2, 120k damage games in the Hindenburg. Netted a total of 330k credits in one, and 555k in the other. However in the higher earning game Devastating strike and Confederate were achieved, while in the other, no awards. Checked some other ships in my channel, Tirpitz had a number of videos and all looked constant with one or two outliers which were actually on the higher side. But those higher income games in the Tirpitz had base captures which from what I can see looking at the numbers, counts for quite a bit.
  7. One pre-loaded Shima would have the capability of absolutely decimating the majority of the friendly team shoudl he/she so choose.

    Not brag-worthy, but my first Shima match...

    Much better results than my first games in her. Think I pulled in a 6k damage game. couldn't land those sea mine torps to save my life. 161,969 spotting damage in that game though, personal record

    Sudden credit earnings nerf?

    Just a real stupid question... Premium time run out perhaps?

    Historical Scenarios, Your thoughts

    Personally I'd like to see more of the low tier options, but what I wish could be done would be Historical Teachings. For instance, it would be a scripted and follow a notable ship. Case in point, SMS Emden. Load in the Emden, track down incoming liberty ships, shore bombardment culminating with a battle with the Sydney where the object isn't to win but do as much damage as possible. Each star for the scenario would unlock a history blurb the further and further in you manage to survive and you could play the ship and learn about what she did in the war. I mean so many ships here in the game have storied histories that the game could expound upon and get people interested in. I credit a WWI Aviation sim for getting me into the beginnings of my history obsession, Warships could probably be the same for others who are interested. Only problem I foresee with trying to do it that way would how to make it team orientated. I mean that large battles are great, but I can't see how it would work for a solitary ship like Emden, Campbeltown, or something like the Mikasa where opponents aren't in game.

    Beta test for CVs will require WGC.

    To be honest I had it during Beta. Had issues with it ramping up my temps and fans and the boxes going blank and the whole thing freezing(Ultra client on release gave me Temperature and fan issues as well which has been fixed now). Didn't play nicely with my PC which resulted in a few full re-installs to get it working again. Have had WGC for awhile now (Required for Warplanes and I needed an airplane game fix) and haven't had any issues like I did when it was first released... I started Warplanes just before the major patch that changed the game quite a bit, don't know the exact date that hit but since then to now, no problems with the WGC. Regardless of if we like it or not though, it's looking like it's only a matter of time before it's required. In preparation of that I'd say two options present themselves (well 3 options really) Launch the game using WGC, alt+tab and close WGC and play the game Install it, make a shortcut to the Warships.exe file and run from that file until you need to download a patch. New patch comes out, load up the WGC, update, close WGC and then click the launcher .exe again. No more playing Personally, the inconvenience of closing out WGC doesn't outweigh the fun of the game for me. Is it ideal? Of course not, but still not enough to break my addiction to this game lol. But other people view things very differently so a minor inconvenience for me might be a much worse scenario for others (IE PC limitations, network limitations etc.) For those not sure about it I'd say make a backup of the original installer and hold onto that, and then give the WGC a try to see if it's bug free or not as bad as initially thought. Least with the original installer backed up if you really don't like it you can revert back to the old version of the game and continue to launch it that way (until it's not an option anymore) and all you lose is some time installing/updating a fresh client install. But that's just my two cents.

    Main Battery Monday - Top Shot

    Konig Albert 32.74% Missouri 31% Cesare 30% which I find odd with how frustrated those gorram guns make me. Tirpitz 28% Warspite 27% Arizona 26% Kinda shocked when I look at the numbers to be honest. All my time in this game and I still say my weak spot is aiming
