  1. Fighting Fridays - On Fire!

    How do you deal with fires on board your ship during battle? Historically, fires have been as much of a threat to ships as incoming artillery or torpedoes. At lower tiers, I tend to use damage control more often than at higher tiers due to the health pool of those vessels. Also I consider the class of vessel as well. BBs have repair consumables but cruisers, destroyers, and aircraft carriers do not. When fires strike, what's your plan? "If you're not making waves, you're not under weigh." - Chester Nimitz, US Navy #fightingfridays #anchorsaweigh
  2. As the Commander of the Air Group (CAG), what's your go-to offensive weapon: dive bombers or torpedo bombers? I initially had success with torpedo bombers but lately dive bombers with AP seems to be effective especially against battleships. Which squadron gets the call to launch against the enemy fleet? #wisdomwednesday #anchorsaweigh
  3. connection issues

    @kgh52 Can you send in a support ticket to have them troubleshoot your client and connection? https://na.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wows/help/17361/17371/17374/ #anchoraweigh
  4. How do you maneuver your ship to avoid being blown out of the water? For myself, it's important to play the map and use the terrain for cover, to regroup, and set up a potential ambush. Changing speed and course make it difficult for effective return fire to delete you instantly. How do you get out of trouble faster than you get into it? "Our planes and pilots, if properly handled are more than a match for the enemy." - John S. Thach, US Navy #tacticaltiptuesday #anchorsaweigh
  5. Floatin an idea for the CV rework

    Ahoy Fleet, Thanks for participating in this discussion thread. The OP felt they had good feedback on the discussion and wanted to conclude it. Many thanks to you all for keeping this discussion civil, constructive, and respectful for the community! #anchorsaweigh
  6. Battleship skippers, if you spot multiple targets, who do you aim at first? Given a choice between a cruiser or a battleship, determining the bigger threat or evening the odds can make the difference between victory, defeat, and survival. With a fleet of ships spotted, who's the on the receiving end of your big guns? "The difference between a good and great officer is about 10 seconds." - Arleigh Burke, US Navy #motivationmonday #anchorsaweigh
  7. Which ship do you look forward to sending to the bottom of the ocean? While it doesn't give me pleasure to do so, my priority target in every battle is either a radar equipped cruiser or a destroyer. Both ship classes can provide the enemy fleet with a tactical advantage, and taking them out changes the balance of power in my favor. Of these classes, the biggest threats I find are a Belfast (CL) and the Kamikaze R (DD). What ship puts a smile on your face when you send it under the waves? https://twitter.com/WorldofWarships/status/1007631312960868352 #fightingfridays #anchorsaweigh
  8. Public Test 0.7.6 - Round 2

    Round 2 starts: Thu. Jun. 14 9:30 AM PDT Round 2 ends: Mon. Jun. 18 6:00 AM PDT Important Notes about Public Test 0.7.6 - Round 2: Improved Unsportsmanlike Conduct Prevention System: now the player's ship will only receive mirror damage after that player has been warned (transition from normal to team killer status). This should reduce the number of situations when randomly released torpedoes or main battery salvos led to destruction of two ships in the same team instead of one, significantly reducing the team's chances of winning. Mechanics apply to all types of damage. Fixed an issue that sometimes led to accuracy bonus not being applied after the target was focused on The order of consumables of the cruiser Cleveland is changed: Damage Control Party, Defensive AA Fire, Surveillance Radar / Spotting Aircraft, Hydroacoustic Search Fixed an issue that causeв ship names to be unreadable in alternative UI modes when using hieroglyphic localization (for example, Japanese or Chinese) The tech tree of the American cruisers was changed and cruiser Buffalo was added to tier IX. Commanders! The second update of the American frenzy is on the horizon and will be dedicated to the new split of U.S. light cruisers. The upcoming Update 0.7.6 brings you the Arsenal, a place where you can exchange Coal and Steel for ships and other valuable loot; a new Operation that will take you right into the heat of a night battle that unfolded in the Empress Augusta Bay; a new season of Clan Battles where you'll be able to put up a second squad; updated maps; and a re-decorated New York port. But most importantly, you get several brand new light cruisers that will join the U.S. fleet. Join the Public Test to grab all the rewards! IMPORTANT! Because the Update is still being tested, the information in this Bulletin is tentative and reflects the state of game development at the time of its publication. Changes and new features may be removed entirely or implemented differently by the time the Update goes live. Screenshots, specific values of certain characteristics, and details of in-game mechanics will not necessarily be relevant after the Update is released.

  9. Ahoy Captains! On June 14, a small update for the game client will be released. Due to the work related to this release, the server will be unavailable: from Thu. Jun. 14 3:00 AM PDT to Thu. Jun. 14 4:00 AM PDT Here's a list of the changes during update Fixed the error where the commemorative flag of a participant of Season 1 of Ranked Battles was displayed incorrectly. Added a background image for "football" combat missions. Removed cruiser Yubari from the Tech Tree of Japanese ships. Fixed the bug where "Unsinkable" and "Fireproof" achievements were not taken into account for the 8th task of the 3rd mission of the "Hit Hard! Hit fast! Hit often!" Campaign Thanks for your patience and see you on the high seas soon! #anchorsaweigh
  10. How do you support your team to secure an objective? Providing fire support or taking damage can help your teammates capture a base. However, spotting, laying down smoke, or providing a combat air patrol against incoming strike aircraft can help your team in many ways. What do you do to support your team's march to victory? "If you're not making waves, you're not under weigh." - Chester Nimitz, US Navy #anchorsaweigh
  11. Hi

    Welcome to the Fleet! If you ever need tips or advice about getting started or basic naval warfare, there are no shortage of experienced captains here in the Forums. We'll see you on the high seas! "Never fear your enemy but always respect them." - John Basilone, US Marine Corps #anchoraweigh
  12. Fleet, I want to thank the OP for their ship suggestion as well recognizing an honorable naval officer, LTJG Harvey Milk. However, the direction of the thread went off topic and became a political debate and was no longer constructive. Please remember to keep all posts constructive, civil and respectful. #anchorsaweigh
  13. Poor Customer Service

    Ahoy Crucis, Can you send me a private message about this? #anchorsaweigh
  14. What ship do you take out to lay down a curtain of firepower? Destroyer wise, my LoYang has been my go to for "gun-boat" diplomacy. Cruiser wise, my Mogami has been deadly at sending shells down range but the Cleveland at Tier VIII is also competing for this role just recently. What vessel(s) give you the most bang for your buck? "Strike hard, strike fast, strike often!" - William Halsey, US Navy #motivationmonday #anchorsaweigh
  15. Fleet, I have been following this thread for a better part of the day and saw some constructive comments that really helped to explain how to obtain the Stalingrad. However, the thread eventually degraded into personal insults and is becoming non-constructive and slightly toxic. Therefore, I'm concluding any further discussions here and reiterate that the Forums are a place for everyone to share constructive comments and thoughts while being civil and respectful of everyone participating. #anchorsaweigh
