  1. t's that time again, Captains! Have some questions you would like to ask for our 0.6.12 Q+A? Then you are in the right place. Feel free to ask away and we will choose some of the most interesting questions and have them answered for you. Make sure your questions are in by Sunday 5pm Pacific time.
  2. Thanks for braving the insane heat and humidity to come hang out! It was awesome to meet you! Hopefully we get to come out to that neck of the woods again soon!
  3. Hello, everyone! Allow us to shed some light on the situation with temporary bans applied yesterday. Some accounts that were using the ReShade software were subject to a ban yesterday. ReShade and the likes are mostly used to modify the visual content of the game, however, the root mechanics of such add-ons are very similar to some of the cheating mods & allow third parties to create malicious versions to inject into executable files & libraries. Unfortunately, this means, that while the intentions of most of our users are benign, the code can still be harmful. As of now all of ReShade users have been unbanned today and provided with compensation. As we are working constantly on improving the game client's protection for the sake of fair play, such mods as Reshade (in addition to the proven cheat ones) have caused some bans, and therefore will soon be prohibited. We understand that you might like the variety they bring, but the risks of the modified source code being used to cheat or even steal your accounts, far outweigh the rewards in this case. All of this means that we will soon issue an official statement, prohibiting its further use, as a part of our ongoing effort to protect the game client. We are continuously investigating many 3rd party software modifications which become popular within our player base to ensure that their use will not affect our players now or in future. At the same time, we’re improving our engine to let mod-makers do their job & improve their mods using native engine methods. As of right now, we ask that players remove ReShade and any similar mods to make sure you don’t receive any unwarranted bans or lose your account data to third parties. Regards, The World of Warships NA Publishing Team.

  6. Commanders, There has been a lot of controversy in the community lately regarding the recently released premium ship Graf Zeppelin, and we would like to share an update on the situation, as well as our thoughts on how we believe we should proceed. First of all, we realize the ship definitely did not meet the expectations of the community, it is clear that we didn't put enough effort into fine tuning and finding the right balance and play style for the Graf. We really wanted to release her for Gamescom and uphold tradition, but could only do that with dive bomber setups if we later wanted to add back torpedo squadrons that had been positively received (but also too powerful) in the first round of testing. This was a technical limitation, but also a choice we were fine with, as we thought we could balance the dive bomber setups to be competitive. To make things worse, the final changes that were done for her didn't go through usual procedure and community contributors did not have a chance to correct the previews that they had prepared, which meant that the thing they showed to their audiences was different than what was eventually released on our live servers. We admit that the decision to release this ship in the current condition was wrong. We should have spent more time working on it and we need to take responsibility for this mistake, as well as provide our apologies to the community. A separate but very connected topic is the situation with iChase and his removal from Community contributor program. After reviewing our decision to remove iChase from our contributor program we agree with iChase, our decision was hasty. In hindsight we should have reached out directly to him and talked about our concerns. iChase has been developing great WoWS content for years now and deserved as much. We would like to apologize to iChase for our haste. In our passion to protect our development team we acted too quickly. We will learn from this and use this situation to help our Contributor program improve. We admit that the decision to release this ship in the current condition was wrong, and we should have spent more time working on it and we would like to take responsibility for this mistake and provide our apologies to the community. However, we know that a simple "sorry" is by far not enough in this case, so we will do the following: First of all, the refund policy for this ship will be changed. No matter how many battles you played on it, until it is fixed you can request to have your purchase refunded by following these links: EU - https://eu.wargaming.net/support/ NA - https://na.wargaming.net/support/ ASIA - https://asia.wargaming.net/support/ Those players who would like to keep the ship and help us make it better we would like to invite to participate in further balance testing. This would follow the steps below: Starting from now we will remove the ship from sales. All owners of GZ will be invited to provide feedback about her and to communicate with the dev team alongside with community contributors, super testers and WG employees in a special Facebook group created specifically for this purpose. This could take a while, as we believe there will be different options to try out, while it will also be the first time we try something like this. We hope that together we can get it right and make Graf Zeppelin great again. After the balancing process is over and the finalized version of the ship goes live there will be an exclusivity period of 3 months. This means that GZ will not go on sale during this time and will only be available for these original owners. We will also create a custom permanent camouflage for GZ, which will only be available for players who bought the original ship. Players will also be invited to take part in the creative process to figure out what this camouflage will look like. We are sincerely sorry for this situation and for causing frustration where there should have been only satisfaction from getting a great new ship and a boatload of fun. We're now manning all action stations to fix it and to prevent it from happening again in the future.

  11. This thread is drifting in and out of off topic and generally getting out of hand. It's time to call it a morning, folks.
  12. New meta... make the enemy unable to stare at you ship for more than a few seconds, rendering precise targeting impossible...
  13. NOLA is a great ship. I had a great time sailing around in her. She's not an easy ship to sail being a Cruiser and having a shortish gun range, but the radar is pretty quality and you can use it to support pushes with your teammates. The guns hit hard and can ruin the days of many a captain. I have since graduated Baltimore and am continuing to have a blasty. I sometimes miss NOLA. Once I got the hang of her, she was a great time.
  14. Hey Unabletony, Niko has a bugs thread going on HERE If you would kindly put this feedback in this thread that would be greatly appreciated!
