    "The authentication server is temporarily unavailable"

    Let me try: Yes in command prompt 1- Press : <windows key> + "r" 2- in the small pop-up at the bottom right of the screen type "cmd" + enter This will open the black "Command Prompt" window 3- in there you type the command "ipconfig /flushdns" Hope this helps. T.

    "The authentication server is temporarily unavailable"

    I got an answer from support telling me to reset my DNS. But it started working again before I do anything. I'm an IT guy. My guess is that they changed the IP addresses of some of their servers, and that the new IP were not propagated completely (it can take a while, especially if you do it the wrong way). So if this happens to you reset your dns (usually entering the following commend does it "ipconfig /flushdns" cheers, T

    Lucky you, I am still out... I opened a ticket with support, no idea how fast they answer.
  5. I cannot log in on the NA server When I enter my password I get "The authentication server is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later. (6004)" Was working fine yesterday. Anyone experiencing the same? T

    Submarines : A review for the rest of us

    Not sure I agree with you on this guys. Yes, super cruisers can be powerful (looking at you Alaska...), At the same time, I am doing fine with my Hindi & both Russian lines are working well too (managing to hit a citadel on the Petro feels like winning the lottery...). In ranked a "classical" HE + hydro cruiser is powerful considering the small maps and amount of DD. So overall, I do feel that cruisers' situation is improving. The ones that are suffering at the moment are the BB. And the subs will be an additional threats. Today, the game is favoring static gameplay too much for my own taste. I believe that the subs will make the game more dynamic, as camping by an inland is going to be more risky. It's a good thing in my book, but we all like to play differently. T.

    How will bad players deal with Subs.

    Can we stop the drama? Low skilled players will get killed fast as usual, with or without subs. Hopefully lot will play subs and we can seal club for a bit with a fast DD

    Submarines : A review for the rest of us

    You are most welcome, so... <do you have time to make it to the 'back row' to find the BB campers? Time, totally. It's more about finding a path that is free of DD & light cruisers. It's part of the planning + being sneaky. You have to avoid DD while looking for juicy targets (looking at you Russian BB camping a choke point :p ) <Did you find that your underwater time was sufficient for what you wanted to do? You get 9min and a bit (depending on equipment & skills). Seems to be a decent amount of time assuming you surface when you can. This is probably tricky. Too much time and subs becomes OP, to little and they won't perform <You hit the Vermont with 5 torps. How much damage? How is the flooding chances? If you manage to ping a target twice at the exact same place you do a LOT of damage (like hitting a citadel), if you don't you do very meh damage. Pinging twice the same place is actually not so easy on real players (against bots that go straight a lot less challenging suddenly ;P ) With 5 Torps + 2 flooding I took about 30 maybe 40% of her health, so that still stung ;P <As the surface ship, did you 'see' the sub when it pings? When you get pinged by a sub, a section of your hull become highlighted and you get an indicator giving you the general direction of the sub. Looks like the Tier 4 Locator skill, see what I mean? So you totally knows a sub is interested in you. <or is it better to depth charge them? This is better. DD and light-cruisers (all ships with depth charges), just need to pass on top of the sub, press "G" to launch the charges, and the sub is going to have a rough time. Roughly the balance of power is: Subs own heavy cruiser Because the heavy cruiser have no depth charge, the only thing they can do is to run away and call momma for help Subs > > BB A BB can delay, cause some damage with air strike, but I feel that one on one, the BB is dead 90% of the time DD > > Subs DD are very agile, and dodge your torp, while they can shoot you if you surface and depth charge you if you stay under. So this time the DD will win 90% of the time Light cruisers > Subs Less agile and fast than DD so the subs have more chances, but I would still rather be in a light cruiser in a 1 vs 1 against a sub. Sub ?? CV CV have some immunity to ping, so you have to lead torps like a DD would. I have not played CV so unsure how they call strike on a sub, but CV being CV, I am sure they can drop something that can hurt :p Hope this helps T.
  9. Hi all, I am not sure we need Brawl and Ranked. I know, I know, the mechanic around both modes are not the same, but the battles themselves sure are: Small teams and skill-based MM. The ability to division in Brawl is fun (at least when you are in one and not playing against :p ), and it gives you an excuse to play your T 10 if you are not in the ranked Gold league. But the games still feel very similar. Also agreed on the reward. Pretty meh in my opinion. T.
  10. Hi all I am an average player. If you are like me this is what you can realistically expect coming your way when the subs will be introduced. Test instance Downloading & installing the test instance is made pretty easy by WG. There were more players online than I expected, and I did not see many bots. Of course everyone wants to play subs, so finding a game is hard sometimes. The playstyle is all over the place though. Some playing seriously, some yoloing and some big potatoes. It's a broadside feast! On my first battle with a BB I almost did 300,000 damage :p Tip for you: All Tier 10 ships were unlocked, so this was a good opportunity to try the ones you do not have or are grinding at the moment. Playing the Subs We could test one US and one German tier 10. They both look beautiful in port, and in my opinion the German one looks more badass. I know what you are thinking.... but Looking good in battle IS important :p The first thing you notice is how all the other ships look so BIG !! DD are looming over you. BB and CV are massive objects that fill the sky. You can spend a fixed time underwater. This can be increased by equipment and skills but once you run out of time you have to surface and stay there. Because of this, diving right away is a bad idea. It's better to stay on the surface until you get close. On the surface you behave roughly like a DD. Low 30kps speed, reasonably agile. One big difference is that your torpedoes tubes are facing forward and backward too (but only on the US sub). But whatever, this is World of Sub now, so let's dive-in.... You can go at periscope depth, a bit deeper, and a lot deeper. The underwater landscape is cool at first, and all is blue-ish / grey-ish. This is probably realistic but not especially beautiful nor breathtaking. You have a sonar that permits you to "ping" targets, and that will guide your torpedoes. Yes, your heard right, your torpedoes will turn and try to follow your targets. However when they get around 2,5km -I think- they will stop honing to the target (i.e. they will not be able to turn anymore and go straight). Seems soooooo OP on paper. I was ready to gorge myself on big juicy BB, the sun was shining, and life was looking amazing when I clicked "Battle"... Reality kicked in when a fat-[edited]Vermont dodged my well guided torps ! I took it personally - obviously - and kept chasing her, while she gave me all her attention At the end of the fight I managed to put 5 torps into her (yay baby), but she killed me with one air strike. It was awesome : ) Seeing the depth charges slowly sinking around you and detonating while you try to dodge is... actually fun. Playing against a sub In summary, DD and some light cruisers need to go on top of the sub and launch depth charges. BBs and some heavy cruisers can call a depth charge airstrike from a distance. Both ways are easy to do and moderately effective. Subs have a low HP pool, so every hit counts. Another effective tactic consists in RAMING the damn sub when she is on the surface or even at periscope depth. I have to admit that it is immensely satisfying to run over a sub with a battleship. I liked it... a LOT... Effect on the game I believe that there will be a before and an after, and the meta will shift. For example, the mighty Petro (Tier 10 heavy russian cruiser) has no depth charge. Zero, nada, zip. He cannot fight back against a sub. Period ! We might see a lot less of those tanky super-cruisers camping and holding a choke point. BB have another serious threat to watch out for, and while they are busy dodging and calling air-strike, they are not shooting at cruisers and might offer a lot broadsides. Ping can be used as... crowd control ! I am not kidding. I often pinged a target that I had no intention of engaging. First, it's funny to see the guy panicking (what can I say, I have an evil side....). And second, most of the time, the ship will try to "escape" and in the process will give me a clear path to the yummy BB that was my real target all along. DD are effective sub-killers as subs abilities to fight back fast targets are really limited. I suspect that we will see more DD (bad news for me since I suck at DD). Light cruisers might become more important, to kill the extra DD & subs (yay me, I love light cruisers) In summary With my limited experience, I find that sub are neither OP nor underperforming. They do offer a significantly different play-style. Well done WG on offering variety, thank you for that, more variety is always a good thing in my book. If you like zipping around all guns firing, you might want to look somewhere else. But if you like planning ahead, be sneaky and ambush unsuspecting targets, you will love them. I suspect that the overall game experience will shift toward a faster gameplay and that BB will struggle more. In any case, camping & snipping in the back will make you a juicy target. And after all the whining around the "boring dead-eye meta", I cannot wait to hear the complaints about how "WG KILLED snipping, how outrageous !". See you on the water all, T.

    Anyone knows when new coal ships will be available?

    Gotcha. I guess I will get the Yoshi them. I wish I could do that :( I do not have enough steel to unlock the Bourgogne even with the coupon. Also my understanding is that the coupon is going to expire on June 17th ( cf this : https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/sales-and-events/missions-0104/#coupons-for-the-armory ) So better to use it on Coal ships than lose it. This is actually a great idea, ty ! None gets me too excited, so back to the existing girls. Thanks for all the info T.
  12. Hi all, I have no coal ship so far (missed all the juicy ones before they got retired), and I am sitting on 200,000+ coal. So with the 25% coupon that is about to expire in June, I can pretty much buy anything. I just do not know if I should wait or not. - I suck at DD so forget the Marceau - There is so many Pommern around it's not even funny, and I do not like inaccurate guns (so picky I know :p ) - This leave the Salem ( but I find island camping boring) - or the Yoshino I am actually VERY interested by this one (I love my kitting Hindi), but my understanding is that the Venezia has the same playstyle and is as effective. So here I am wondering if I should get the Yosh or just wait for new ships. Does anyone know if / when new ones will be introduced? Cheers, T.

    A factual analysis of the infamous Alaska Airstrike clip

    Hi all, So you mean that island camping with a OP ship will not be possible anymore? You will have to actually sail around ??!!?? It seems to be that catching a moving ship with an Airstrike is going to be VERY difficult. This is looking outrageous indeed T

    Can someone explain this no concealment go in reverse thing?

    Hi all, Ok, this make sense. TY guys for all the info. I tried it again still in ranked, still with my Hindi and still in front of a Yamato. What can I say, I am a lucky sailor :p It actually worked well enough ! (Thx to the Yamato not being able to shoot well :p ) However my Hindi does not that the Prop Mod. This made transitioning forward / reverse slow and borderline suicidal. I feel like I will grind the French CA and have fun doing this, while I will keep kitting with my Hindi for the moment. T.
