    July Combat Missions: Ride the Rogue Wave!

    I think I need to stop looking at event details - it's ruining the game enjoyment for me. First I can't get the 100 fuel from the 48 missions because I've been sick. Now I find that I can't even complete stage 3 of the Rogue Wave directives unless I either play Randoms (which I haven't done in months now) or play CVs (which in my 4 years with this game I have never, EVER done. Both things are too stressful for me at this point in my life, so I guess I can just stop trying to complete the Rogue Wave events right now, since thanks to WG, it's impossible for me.

    July Combat Missions: Ride the Rogue Wave!

    I was looking forward to the 100 Fuel for 48 mission chains, and didn't do the math. After sleeping almost all day both Saturday and Sunday, thanks to chemo fatigue, I guess I'm already out of the running. Yay.

    Remember the 'Mericans - 27th - 3rd

    Frustrating ending - I had used 5 of 6 consumables toward the personal mission, and then a bot DD rams the last ship - game over. But hey, it qualifies for this, I guess.

    Replays do not function but once did

    I don't buy that at all. And I'm no PC novice, either. Back before replays became the latest, greatest feature available within the game (what a crock - it took them 3 years to get that going?) I would quite simply save them using Aslain's mods and just right-click on the replay file in order to watch it using the WOWS executable. Now, however, the "in-game" replay files identify, by default, as PDF files, and I can only get as far as the WOWS intro window using the WOWS launcher executable (the "worldofwarships" executable won't even add itself to the list of potential programs in the "Open with" window). I use Windows 7. And if I try to use the Launcher a second time, it only opens the intro window a second time. if I use that to manually log into the game, that's all that happens. The replay doesn't start, and if I try again, as I said, I only get the intro window superimposed on the active game. But nothing will get a replay to run. I want to know what happened last night that a teammate launched 6 torpedoes into my side (accounting for 75% of the torpedoes I received) because I was distracted by the remaining 3 enemy BBs all focusing on my Dunkerque. Didn't get an apology or any comment at all from the guy, and I'm curious about what was going on outside my sphere of attention at the time. At any rate, my hardware is just fine; I check every morning for any driver updates and even if a reinstall is required in order to watch replays - how is that a problem on MY end? That only indicates a deficiency in the executable itself and that's not something I can remedy. Neither can I make WG care if their great new replay capabilities are garbage or not. I only wish I could make Aslain's override the WG replay function, since THAT always - ALWAYS - worked without a hitch.

    I haven't tried for several months, but today I wanted to watch a replay from last night to see how in the world a teammate could have accounted for 6 of 8 torpedoes launched into my side. I use Windows 7, and by default the replay files saved by WOWS (which I'd rather use Aslain, since those replays don't automatically disappear, but by default it's WOWS replay files created by WOWS) are identified as PDF files, for some reason. I tried several times to use the "Open with" function to add the WOWS executable (worldofwarships.exe) but nothing got added to the selection of programs. So I tried to use the WOWS Launcher, which only logged me into the game. And if I try again, it only tries to log me in again. So just how the heck are we supposed to be able to actually WATCH these replays? I have to say, back when I used Aslain's, watching these replays was so simple - what's happened?

    May Combat Missions: Bismarck in Action!

    FWIW, I don't care what a camo looks like - only what it does. I've used the schoolbus camo repeatedly, and the only reason I stop using a specific camo pattern is so I don't run out. So I have a whole lot of camo patterns with 3 or 4 left each, and have to scroll down to get to the newer ones. But I don't buy camo, even with in-game tokens. I have enough in general to last a long time, so to me it would be a waste to buy any camo .

    May Combat Missions: Bismarck in Action!

    So here's this month's regularly scheduled disappointment. Instead of the Daily Mission: Hard reward of Dragon flags, I'm going to get the old "Haha, sucks for you. too bad you didn't buy a Soviet premium destroyer" reward. Didn't and won't. And as usual, any 'new' News item cannot be marked as read - it just comes back wanting to be read again. 3 months in a row, I think, this has been happening. For those fastidious people such as myself who like to get rid of all distractions, it's quite frustrating.

    PSA: 'Normal' Twitch drops ended. Done. Fini. Over.

    Well, at least I can discontinue watching other people playing the same game I play, and feeling pretty damn inadequate in the process. I spend enough time playing WOWS while everything else I need to get done stacks up in the corner. Doubling that with other people's streams only made things worse, so now I can ignore streams without feeling like I'm missing something.

    Update the "Victory" Competition!

    According to the update notes, the server isn't listed as being available for another hour (9am Eastern Time, US). (I did the same thing, then I checked the notes. Only reason I know.)

    Public Test - 0.8.3 - Feedback

    Are there any plans to have an actual 2nd public test session? Seeing as Part 1 didn't really exist except in the minds of WG.

    Public Test of Update 0.8.3: Round 2

    Well, got screwed out of some much-needed flags with round 1, and didn't see the announcement for round 2 until 3 hours before it ends, so too bad for me.

    Public Test - 0.8.3 - Feedback

    Why did they bother to include the link to the News article since it says nothing about it being "stopped"? At least not that I could see.

    Public Test - 0.8.3 - Feedback

    Yep - I tried Saturday, Sunday and Monday - unable to get in at all. I just got the WOWS version of the windows pinwheel for however long I let it "run". Opted for life instead after about 10-15 minutes each time.

    Top Ten Challenge: Week One

    Nothing like numbers like that to make you feel like you really suck.

    Update 0.8.2: From Britain to the Moon

    So, they ask specifically what we like about the patch. As if we'll assume we can't mention what we don't like. What the hell happened to the Service Record tab under Profile? If it's to remain the way it is, it needs to be renamed World of Warships for Dummies. The paucity of information there now has absolutely nothing to do with one's service record any more.
