    Good bye Windows 7... and hello Windows 10?

    I just did the upgrade last night and it went super smooth and my computer seems to be fine. I'll run a defrag and clean up tonight but otherwise it was as easy as it could be which surprised me given Microsoft's history of f-ups

    I would like to know how to get 10 for free, I should have done the switch years ago when they did that offer but stubborn me didn't

    Competitive Montana build

    The captain will gain ranks as he gets more skill points

    I was starting to come back to this game...

    There is a solution, eliminate T4 CVs, make it T5-T10. I wasn't a fan of the tier skipping during the rework. At T5 most ships start to get ok to decent AA so it makes sense to me
  5. I took a break starting last January, mostly burn out. I was very involved in the CV rework early on but I was just to fried from the game and add in the fact WG didn't seem to listen to anyone. I decided to play all my ships at least once. I started from T2 with my Tachibana Lima and was going well with my Mikasa getting my first win of the night with a 2 kill game with one of them being by secondaries. T3 was a wash though, CVs are a unstoppable force and sucked any fun away. I even brought out my AA spec Wyoming, I shot down 16 planes, more than both sides combined but the planes were unrelenting. How the hell are they suppose to retain players with crap like that happening? I can't imagine being a new player and just getting hammered with no way to fight back except trying to out maneuver the planes. I've been around since OBT and I don't recall it being that bad out side of the occasional purple player showing up. Not trying to make a whine thread but I was pretty surprised I might try some T5+ tonight but if it goes the same I'll pull the final plug on the game for me.

    Is the Bismarck good for anything?

    She wasn't power creeped but more or less nerfed into the ground Their good mid to late game ships, where they can use their speed to chase down single ships and force them into a 1v1 fight which where they excel. Problem is to be great at 1v1 she becomes easy prey to multiple ships. They are resistant to small caliber HE but she has enough armor to allow full penetration hits into their superstructure. Another problem most Bismarcks are secondary builds and everyone knows it so they just stay out of range, I've seen DDs test my secondary range and whether I have manual secondaries or not. I changed the build on mine, still manual secondaries but I'm running accuracy mod and concealment, it really makes a difference in the current meta for me

    I dunno why I never overclocked sooner

    Well stress testing at 100% load is getting 76° C after 15 minutes with the gpu fan at 85%. With game running on high on a small map, all bots and 3 CVs per side it was showing around 67-69C during the more stressing parts of the test (ships firing gun and AA at 2-3 squads). The CPU during the GPU stress test ran around 46-47° C. *Correction* 76°C was at max reliable setting, I backed down some more and was around 73-74°C after 15 minutes of stress testing The CPU is a AMD Athlon II X2 250 and people have "claimed" to reliably run them above 4ghz, I don't plan to run it that hard though, that said OC a CPU doesn't really help with games from what I understand. Like I said this is a $50 computer and while I won't try to break it, I'm just curious how much I can run her

    I dunno why I never overclocked sooner

    I got a new GPU for my other computer, it's a old dell with a 3ghz 2 core AMD, 1 TB harddrive, good solid computer that I picked up with the monitor, keyboardand mouse for $50 because the ethernet port died. Except it wasn't broke because it had a nasty virus, so I wiped the drive installed my antivirus program. Now I got me a solid computer for cheap. Back to the point I picked up a new GeForce GT 710 2gb for $50 shipped and installed in, except it wasn't preforming like I thought it should, I got 30FPS ingame and bugged to 20-25fps with ships shooting and full AA firing on medium graphics settings. I downloaded MSI Afterburner and this card took a solid cooking, run 40-45 fps solid at medium settings and sits around 30-35 fps on high settings with a drop to around 25 or so in full bots shooting around me with AA going off. I can push the card further but I backed it down some from where it seemed to run solid under full load. I think its time to overclock the CPU next

    What Premium Ships Did You Get Out of Santa's Gifts?

    I got one mega gift and got a West Virginia out of it

    There is no 'free stuff' in WoW

    Well now your nitpicking, go troll someplace else

    There is no 'free stuff' in WoW

    I just got a free West Virginia from a free Santa container I did nothing to get, if that isn't free then I'm a very confused 35 year old person
  12. I haven't played really at all in the last year (burn out from CV testing plus leaving a bad taste in my mouth because WG decided to release CVs regardless what us testers said) but I still hit the daily log in's and I set up the build for the PC and for completing Stage 1 of the build I got a Christmas container with this. I guess I could come back to the game after a year

    The ARP grind and the Gorilla

    I got the ship's and captains and I remember the grind being doable for a player like me that is slightly above average and only plays 3-5 games a night usually
  14. Your the one coming on here in 2 separate threads crying about their speed, quit your whining
  15. Its not the ship, its the player, so instead of crying how about you actually learn how to play. Judging by your complaints in the NY thread I can tell you don't understand how to play this game. Let's begin, you don't push flanks you USN Standards, their slow, heres a shocker for you, THEY'VE ALWAYS BEEN SLOW!!!! You work the side you are spawned in, if your team comes your way then be in front of the push, if your team sails away then your a rear guard. Angle the ship to maximize armor. Next focus cruisers, your ship has 343mm of middle finger to AP on all sides, angling properly will make you citadel proof, you can tank other BBs but cruisers will rip you apart. Also killing cruisers allows your DDs to screw up enemy BBs. Use islands to cover yourself but don't sit still, don't forget your slow and it takes awhile to get moving again, but Standards have great handling.
