  1. I had an insane game once, total adrenaline rush - *puts on glasses and takes out cane, switches to granpa voice* this was back in the day when the game was either still in or just out of beta, been so long can't remember exactly, but I was in either the Clemson or Nicholas, and I charged around an island, had 3 battleships that were already worn down a bit, 2 on one side, 1 on the other. Went charging through them with engine boost, center launcher to one side, side x launcher on the other side, side y launcher on the last one. All torps hit (they were all like less than 3km away), 3 kills, and back behind cover asap dodging bb and cl fire all the way and shaking the heck out of my badonkadonk. I have never pulled off quite a silly/lucky run since, nor prior, but once I finished that battle and lifted my hands off the keyboard, they were quite literally shaking a little. Took a 5 minute break to settle down and hoot n hollar a little at how I managed to get away with it. *puts glasses back in pocket, cane back in the stand, and goes back to normal voice*.
  2. How do I hide ARP ships in 0.7.8

    I have 107 ships in my port, I don't need 4 myoko's and 4 kongos, plus a spare Atago all taking up space on the regular. That said, I do prefer to keep them, because once in a long while, I will actually take them out. I do this for mainly one reason: I'm a collector, yes only of pixel boats that are at the end of the day effectively worthless, but it brings me personal satisfaction to have "stuff". Especially "stuff" that is not at this time and may never again be available in game - ergo somewhat of a status symbol. It's like having a limited edition of something, that only had one production run. Again, meaningless to everyone else (at least inherently, some may agree with my perception), but it makes me happy.
  3. I have 107 ships, I don't need like 10 extra copies of the Kongo, Atago, and Myoko between dragons and anime girls. If I wanted to play them, I'd want to have the camo on for that match, but if I don't, I don't want to have to scroll through so many extra random ships. Just have a second button next to the "Hide camo" to "Hide from carousel" or something like that. Honestly, I don't even mind seeing the camo when other people run them, I just don't want almost a whole page of ships that I'm almost never going to play
  4. I don't know about exactly that. I do know wot right now (or at least last I heard) was in the middle of a feces fracas over preferential matchmaking, how they are blaming tanks that have been around for years for the failure of the new wot mm algorithm, and saying if you don't like the new version of the tank you paid for you can pay them some more money to trade it. There's a 150 plus page thread on those forums. I believe wot and warships are kinda separate teams, but since they all WG I'd say make of that what you will. Is it entirely within their rights? Yes. Does that mean it's good business to treat the customers financing your free game that way? Maybe not. Also as stated this was the last I heard during last week. It may have been resolved to everyone's satisfaction by now. Even if it was, the fact that it ever was an issue is not completely irrelevant.
  5. It irritates me to no end when I'm in discord with one of my buddies, and some random joins the division. Wargaming shouldn't assume I want randos joining me and my buddies once-a-week hangout time, and since the setting doesn't seem to stick, I often forget to mess with it. Div should be locked by default and unlock when specifically indicated by the user. I understand the argument would be "But then people won't know how to unlock/won't bother" - here's the thing, I don't div with randos often if ever, it either clannies or friends. Either way, random joiners are not welcome. If I take a shine to someone I'll invite them or message them and see if they'd like to join. Random "me toos" just get kicked with disdain, so you're not improving their social experience. Did I just miss a setting entirely, or did WG really think that was a good default?
  6. 8000 Gold Paintjobs - Acceptable?

    Put me in the "Nope" category - I was looking forward to picking up a few of these expecting about 5k a pop - even as alternative camo's for ships I've already gotten the type 5 on. But at 8000 - no thank you. I let Wargaming vacuum my wallet regularly, I'm the stereotypical whale, but this is too much suckage even for me. Makes my monthly budget a lot simpler since I don't have to worry about stocking up some doubloons for these now.
  7. Your percentage benefit for survival expert is inflated. If you assume that aft is only useful to aa in cv battles, then equally se is only useful when the 3500 hp means the difference between life and death. If the match ends and you have more than 3500 hp, you didn't benefit from se. If you didn't survive then you may or may not have. Maybe you got an extra volley off, maybe you didn't. Only actions taken while below 3500 hp would be things that can be attributed to se. I don't believe the benefit of having that 3500 hp is worth 4 pts. I tend to focus on ship spec so aa is "right" in my eyes, even if it is rarely used. That said if I wasn't taking aft I wouldn't take se instead, for the reasons above. Note however I'm not a good player so take my opinion with a pound of salt
  8. From the other side but still pretty stupid. Had a ca torp me seconds into the match because we bumped during deployment. Let the flood run till he killed himself. Net result his only contribution to the match was pinkie then death. Don't act like a petulant child and you won't get stupid prizes. Only regret is i think we lost, so i didn't bomb his daily if it was his first match. From my side i did get pink once not realizing a freddy had snuggled up my bb and i blasted him with rear turret he and set a fire. Deserved my pink and almost died myself from reflection. Whoopsie
  9. GG Supercontainers

    Between the fact that even going TYL they are still rare as hell for me and the fact that the rewards are meh half the time i always go signals now. 8 to 12 flags that I'll probably use vs TYL and getting only 4 or something even more useless like bad camo.. easy choice - more of the useful things please. Then the uber-rare super container from signals usually has some of the really good ones
  10. Got all camo out of 5 admirals, not putting another cent in. What I need the least, I get exclusively. Would rather have doubloons, flags, prem time, or the Eugen
  11. Christmas Hidden Achievements

    I'm on of them - it is open 17 containers. #1 I know this because that's how I got it, #2 because it basically says EXACTLY that. Not everyone gets excited about crates as others do. I personally am sort of meh about them. I had 24 saved up, opened them all.
  12. "Chat server Unavailable?"

    Twitch, that's less a "fix" and more a workaround - my logically based opinion is that WG introduced some network bug(s) with this last patch. The evidence is that the issue is with their side not with our side. All of a sudden, many players who have been playing for quite a while with 0 chat/update/networking issues all of a sudden have simultaneous computer issues with our DNS servers? Not likely. A patch released to this game occurs at the same time as update issues/chat issues/network issues start that affect this game and this game only. Evidence seems to suggest that logically, the probability that it is something on their end, or in the patch itself that has bad netcode or networking pathing or whatever (not a programmer) is behind it.
  13. "Chat server Unavailable?"

    Yeah this last patch seems to have broken a lot of network related stuff - for example, I had to change my DNS to download the update and even the installer from their website, after no issues for the last 2 years roughly (since cbt). I've been getting this "Chat server unavailable" issue most times, although it seems to fix itself after about 5-10 minutes, or maybe after a battle. It tends to work itself out eventually,. I did a ticket when trying to get the thing running after the update, but they came back with suggestions to fix my end. Sorry WG, but when everything starts breaking literally at the exact moment you patch the game, that would logically indicate that you messed something up, not my settings which have never been a problem for 2 years.
  14. [] Master Port Collection

    Can't wait for the 5.11.1 update, On an unrelated note - the installer seems to be putting the version folder in the base WorldOfWarships folder for me, rather than the resmods folder. Easy enough to move after the install, but not sure if that's working as intended. Great work gentlemen, newcomer to the pack, but instant fan!
  15. Also, my router is actually already set to use the Google DNS system as well.
