  1. As title states, there is a bug that is causing game crashes if you are using the custom music option. Removing the music files from the UserMusic folder fixes the crashing. I have used the custom music folder since the day it was patched in, which had to be 2-3 years ago at this point. It is the same music files, in the same folder, on the same hard drive, with the same install of the game. Not once have a I crashed because of these until last week. Sometime between Saturday the 2nd and Thursday the 7th, WG made some kind of change to the game that has introduced this problem. Prior to that, not a single crash because of custom music. Not one. And no music was added or changes of any kind made by me to the game folder or the custom music folder and it's contents. Nor where there any changes made to my computer, both hardware or software. I am posting this in the hopes that this issue is added to the fix list sooner rather than later.

    Have I exhausted Tech Support's usefulness?

    Can also confirm that removing music files solved the random crash problems that appeared out of the blue for me this week. Funny story though. I was gone on a trip for work from Monday to Wednesday. Played this past Thursday night after not playing since the Saturday before it. During the time I was gone my wife rearranged my computer room(grrrrrrrr). Nothing on my end had changed since Saturday, but Thursday night I crashed in each game I tried. Didn't appear to be a new numbered update. Couldn't figure out why I was crashing, so chalked it up to wife must have bumped or jarred my computer and now it was haywire. So I pulled the plug on a new set of parts to upgrade my computer. Then, I find this thread. I would've never considered the music files were the problem in a million years, for two reasons. There had been no update and so I assumed no changes to the game, and it has been months since I last added any new music to the UserMusic folder, and had been using custom music since the day they patched it into the game. Long story short, if your game crashes, use it as an excuse to buy a new computer while sort of kinda maybe blaming it on your wife and stubbornly not feeling silly later when you discover it was not your wife at all.

    Ovechkin Commanders

    With Seagal, the contract for his in-game event was for a year. Works similar to some of the anime stuff they've done that ends. I'm sure in the end it was about money they'd have to pay to keep him longer, and he was only a part of it because they were releasing Missouri.
  4. Gosh, I mean, why can't WG just make a MM that lets us all win all the time. Must be a conspiracy!

    Campaigns; Do they still have a place in the game?

    The only problem with campaigns is that there aren't more of them. I see literally nothing wrong with them whatsoever. Especially the permanent ones that can be completed at whatever pace you want.

    Yahagi = Half Baked Effort

    I just look at it as more or less a premium Furutaka. That works for me. It was 17 bucks, and as a rule I don't expect much from anything below tier VI.

    Why is ManSec kept in the game?

    I love manual secondaries. I've put them on Bismarck, FDG, GK, Izumo, Yamato, Jean Bart, Mass, Gascogne, and Richelieu.
  9. Personally, I think this game should come with a wire harness that we hook up to various nodes on our bodies so the game can read our biofeedback and matchmaker can use that information when forming a round. I don't want anyone with high blood pressure, tourette's syndrome, an insensitivity to dairy, or a history of high cholesterol on my team. Matchmaker isn't perfect because it doesn't have enough information. I want it tied into my medical and financial records and my bank account so it can weigh current transactions and use an algorithm to estimate my proper stress level sinus rhythm. That all makes much more sense than just expecting a randomly selected group of players to be a randomly selected group of players.

    What is the worst Tier 9

    Of the ships I currently have, I'd have to say my least favorite right now is Seattle. But she's still new to me at this point so that may easily change. Also, I pick Seattle despite owning crowd unfavorites like FDG, Izumo, and Neptune(all three of which I liked enough to put permacamo on).
  11. Nothing too much has changed. There are some new ship lines and a few new mechanics. Some maps have been adjusted. New graphics systems and the new sound system. And of course there is still the vocal minority who are afraid of new things and hates anything WG ever does. But mostly it's the same game you left. Myself having played off and on since 2016, I can say without a doubt that the game is better now. But obviously that's just my opinion.

    WG does not care- why should we ?

    I assume this is in reference to getting rid of statues and I'd just like to remind you that the statues are not the history nor are they the only or even the primary way of remembering people or events. You can disagree with their removal and the reasons behind it, but the "erasing history" narrative people jump to is just sensationalism. These people and events will always exist in history and will not be erased because somebody moved some art.
  13. Recently in the Tier VI ranked sprint, I was playing my Mutsu and had an absolutely wonderful round. The best part was when I was coming up beside some islands(I don't remember what the map name was, but it was the one that is a version of the map that normally gets played in tier V) and there was an Izmail coming through to my left, while there was another BB approaching from my right. I had been paying attention to the latter ship and didn't notice that Izmail until he was real close to me. For a second I was having an "oh crap" moment but then, like a lightbulb turning on, I remembered my Mutsu torps and fired off two in his direction. I then switched to guns and got a cit on the other BB for a kill 2 or 3 seconds before my torps hit the Izmail for a double strike. It was one of those situations where, in a replay, it probably looked like I planned it all with ninja precision but in reality things just happened to work out well. We went on to win the round. My birthday wish is for a Duke of York.

    The hypocrisy of WG and "historical accuracy"

    Did they release it onto the live server yet? No?

    The OP reminds me of something I have to remind my kids about all the time. Fair does not automatically mean equal.
