  1. I have suspected much the same for some time now. The cost of the ships has gone up a lot and the ships themselves are over powered mostly and nearly always not even close to the actual vessel., paper napkin ships aside. I prefer historically accurate ships over "balanced" ships. How else is one to see if Bismarck was really the terror it was made out to be by the British?
  2. It is hard to put all of this into the proper perspective. I like the dockyard idea. I don't like endless grinds, I have a life and a job. I am sorry for those who don't. Life is to short to waste in playing a game endlessly for a pretty picture that moves. As a casual gamer I feel left out, abandoned even. I can live with that. It's bad enough dealing with toxic chat from online bullies which already puts a limit on how much I and my friends can take before we walk away from the game for a week or so. We all love Warships and we are all concerned about the course the game has taken mainly pushing people into areas of play that are simply NOT fun due to the online bully bunch. I would rather this be fixed instead of wasting time making ships that only the online bullies will end up getting anyways. As a leader in my factory we are taught to apologize for our errors and the FIX them, no [edited], no excuses. In my opinion, the head of development should be fired and replaced with a level headed person who understands the client base, what they want and expect. As a business, you need to learn the customer is always right. This was a disaster of epic proportions targeted to people who don't have a life and rewarding them for it. That is a sad commentary on WG overall. You need to do better... a LOT better.

    Can We All Calm Down a Second?

    Here's my 2 cents. From what I have seen on YouTube by several CC's, the event cannot be done period. The cost of the ship has been listed at over $200 US dollars and it's crap the Alaska is far better. You really need to watch Jingles explain the 7 Directives properly Burnsy. I may get the new Spagetti machine around Xmas, PR.... like in real life she'll never be completed. Cooler heads need to prevail and realize it's an animated picture not worth what's being asked. Walk away boys.

    Update 0.8.9 - Feedback and Performance

    Since the last patch I have experienced several game crashes, either completely to desk top or a solid system lockup requiring a hot reboot. What's up with that? Last weekend it ran just fine, this weekend I accomplished nothing.

    Update 0.8.7 - Bugs Report

    Patch has caused a port issue. After selecting 2 ships the game locks up. Nothing works, not even the main menu settings to exit the game. I have to Alt-Ctl-Del to task manager to close the game. There are no error messages either.

    PSA: Naval Training Center

    I was alerted to this in Steam chat last night by a friend whom I play with. To put it bluntly he was ballistic about the idea and threatened to quit playing WoWs. That is no idle threat either as we use to play WoT until it became World of Race Cars on treads. He uninstalled the game and never returned to my dismay. I have watched the ichase video and agree, this is DOA to me. no more PvP ever period. I'm fine with coop, less trash talk anyway in there. I feel it is more important for Wargaming to fix the little things players have asked for before even contemplating such a bad idea to start with. There is no way in the Nine Hell's that I would even contemplate regrinding a line. I already have a job thank you very much.

    Technical Issue Found, disconnected from server

    Friends and I still get the error message. Last check was about 10 minutes ago.
  8. Oh yes, checked shop quick and saw the sale. Jumped on it real quick! Since I play WoWs way more than Tanks it was a present to me this year.

    checkout basket for the premium shop

    Banks don't like multiple charges to the same place either. I have had a card locked due to suspicious activity by the bank doing that single item charge deal in WoT before.
  10. JB is way over priced for a T8 battleship masqarading as a T9 battleship. The guns are not in the same field even. I really wanted this ship but not for $80.

    Freezing Crashing and Pulling Hair Out

    Timo, follow FireHorse's suggestion to shred the main folder instead of uninstalling it. Run a register cleaner when done and then reinstall the game. This worked for me. I ran the game last night for 6 hrs with no issues. You can find free shredders to download. I got mine from the Cnet site.
  12. My guess is this is a video issue. The flashing seems to involve the frame rate also. I have only seen this kind of thing in RUSE and old PC game which played good, then went to crap and now plays good once more. The only thing that changed on my system was the video card and a different driver to match. I went from a Geforce 660 to a Geforce 1050 which corrected the problem in RUSE.

    I need help with an ongoing Issue!

    UPDATE: I followed your suggestion sir having run out of ideas and no help from support on the issue. I still had the occasional crash during battle so I downloaded a military file shredder and destroyed the WoWs main folder and all other folders and contents instead of uninstalling it. Once done I ran the disk defragger and disk cleanup utilities and reinstalled WoWs. I also ran Winzip register cleaner prior to the reinstall. Last night I had the time to spend testing the new install with a friend. We ran the game for about 6 hours and I had no crashes, none. Not a single glitch even. I was amazed as was my friend. We discussed why this would work and he suggested just as I believe you did in another post that the installer sees prior WoWs files and folders and simply restores the old folders with the files thus keeping the same corrupted files. To be clear, I ran the game with no mods for 3 hrs followed by the other time with my custom music folder loaded. This has not been tested with Aslain's mod pack yet which is all I use. I also launched the game through the game center. I will install the mod pack later today and run another session for stability. I suspect it will run just fine now but we shall see. UPDATE MOD Testing: Tested the game with my usual mods installed from Aslain's mod pack. On the first game out it crashed within 30 seconds of battle. I uninstalled the mod pack, ran the register cleaner and ran the game once more for 3 games without issues. Something in the Aslain's mod pack is causing the game to crash. Which mod I do not know. I reinstalled just the few mods I like and ran the game for another hour without further issues so what I do have installed works. I am going to leave the matter there. The game works just fine besides the missing names of ships and players when in battle.

    I need help with an ongoing Issue!

    Ok, but answer me this then. I ran out of space on my C drive so I got a 4TB drive to add to the system. I uninstalled all of my games from C and reinstalled them on the new drive starting with Tanks and WoWs. Even after installing on a clean new drive and defraging C the game still crashed. My friend suggested I update my video card as it was a Geforce 660. Now I have a Geforce 1050 but nothing has changed, it still crashes.
  15. Well, this did not solve the crash bug issue for me. Played in Division last night, game crashed 3 times. Today I closed all unnecessary programs except for the AV software. Ran game with and without mods, crashed. Started game from exe file but game center loaded, crashed. Ran game through game center, crashed in battle and went to a black screen as well as in port after choosing another ship. Closed game center and ran client through exe file needing to relog in, crashed with that. Even rebooted PC to clear memory of any running but closed programs and it still crashed. I'm out of ideas and so is my friend who is a PC tech by trade and job.
