  2. “Cry Havoc and Let Slip the Borks of War” Do you like boats? Do you like Corgis (or any dog)? Do you like military history? (Specifically Naval history from the turn of the 20th century to mid 20th century?) Good News! I have the clan for YOU! We are “The Borks of War” (TBOW) We are looking for members to join TBOW to grow the clan while having a good time. Our main goal right now is for you to join us and play Clan Battles. We want to reap the juicy rewards of Clan Battles and you should too. A few items about our clan: Everyone in the clan has a microphone and we require that you have one too. We have a Discord server and a private Teamspeak server too. We are on the servers daily. Clan information and Clan Battles happen on Discord. PM for a link if you want to get to know us. We respect each other and are not [edited]. We also respect other players in the game. We hate drama. We play to win and have fun. (Why are we playing a game if we are not after fun?) Communication and working together is key for our group. We are a TEAM! To put the icing on the cake, we have all built our base for the economic benefits. The clan docks are completed (-10% servicing cost for every ship). We also have the XP boost (+3% xp) for Japanese, German, French, and Russia. We are close to the next nation so join and help us choose! If you would like to get to know us, PM me and I’ll send you the Discord link. bdnorcal
  3. I do not know how WG’s anti-cheat system works, but I do know that other anti-cheat systems will detect cheat files on a PC even if they are not installed and/or running. For example, the cheat file was downloaded to the hard drive, but it was never installed. The anti-cheat system then scans the PC and finds the cheat file in the “downloads” folder on the PC. Hello ban. This can even be cheats made for other games too. Some anti-cheat systems go as far as to ban you for modifying the operating system so it will boot without key low-level Windows protections features. Even if there were no active cheats running. In addition, practically all anti-cheat software makes a finger print of your PC. This is to identify the cheaters that use one account to cheat on and have a separate account that is “clean”. The fingerprint also serves to identify repeat offenders. In my experience with online gaming, false positive do not happen very often. Usually the person who received a warning or a ban made a mistake in their “process” or they caught red handed. As for what you can do, all you can do is open a ticket with WG. Complaining on the forums will not help you at all. In some online game communities, forum posts about false bans just invites the massive anti-cheat dog pile on you for cheating. bdnorcal P.S. If you really want to become jaded about cheaters, look at the Rust forum on Steam where people ask why their accounts were banned. Out of the thousands of “I don’t know how to cheat, why was I banned” or “I do not know what a cheat is” posts, I’ve seen one maybe two get reversed due to false positives. People will say anything to get a ban reversed.
  4. Sea of Fortune - Why?

    Ok ... so you are proposing that if two DDs go over to west of the islands of A/B, that a CA and maybe a BB go that way too? Now you have 3 or 4 ships tied up for ONE CAP. That cap will probably be contested so there would be no progress on it. Then to top it off, they won't be able to fire their guns at hardly anything due to the large islands. By the time the ships come back into play, the rest of the team is dead or severely damaged with no caps to show for it. I've seen too many DDs go to the west and die instantly to torps or 3/4 ships. I find it a fools errand to go west of those islands. A better strategy for the map is to cap A/B directly with side support from between all the caps. Of course take caution and step lightly when radar and hydro boats are around. It isn't always important to grab a cap right away. One thing that drives me nuts sometimes is that people get into the mentally that we need to cap right away at the beginning of the battle. It is better to choose where and how you fight than it is to own a cap within the first minute of the battle. I've had countless battles won when we were down 300 to 600 because they capped first, but paid a heavy price for doing it. bdnorcal
  5. @Pigeon_of_War Hi Pigeon Would it be possible to consolidate clans in the future? IE Combine two clans into one and not lose acquired oil and unlocked buildings/docks/ETC. My friends and I started a clan and tried to grow it large enough to participate in clan battles. Unfortunately we did not get large enough to participate in clan battles this season. Half way through the season we found another clan in our same situation. However no one wanted to switch clans because we would lose all of the "work" in acquiring oil/unlocks for the clan. Between the two clans we could have fielded a team for clan battles. Would it be possible to do this before the next season? Thanks, bdnorcal
  6. BORK! Thank you for the contest and it was fun to sink you. Happy Borkmas to you! Provided my schedule works for your next event, I'll be your escort with the opportunity for doubloons for sinking me!!!

  8. "Message from Beyond" solution

    This is certainly an option. The only candidate we have for an encrypted text string right now is the "Morse code" from the redacted lines of the documents. That is still questionable whether it means anything or is a red herring.
