    How do you watch replays with WGC?

    There is a link to the old launcher just below the main D/L link. Don't use unnecessary bloat-ware WGC so can't help with the replays.
  2. The port clock uses local system time, everything else is based on WGs servers. If there is no interaction with said server, information displayed locally does not change. This interaction between the servers and your port can also suffer from significant lag. I've learned to be careful when switching out flags...
  3. There is a fundamental problem - the difficulty of the final task of the 'Mighty Prinz' campaign (Earn 1,000 base XP in a victorious battle) is relatively easy - if you play PVP. After unlocked the New Orleans early last year I played 9 games in Random before I got tired of the boring, campy upper tier gameplay. I then played 10 games in Coop to compare the two modes of play. Allowing for the win bonus my average base XP in Random was 1,162. Base XP in Coop was 399. Based on that average Random base XP, completing the final task of 'Mighty Prinz' with NO would be trivially easy for me if I play Random - apart from the win, of course. Coop is a completely different story. In the 57 NO games to date I've never reached 900 base XP, much less 1,000. Conclusion: 1,000 base XP requirement is not difficult in PVP, but is very effective at gating the reward behind PVP play. To get a broader look at this I decided to visit the leaderboard at wows-numbers, which can be sorted by maximum XP in a game. SOURCE To account for the fact that the 50% Premium bonus is reported by WG, I set the cutoff at 1,500 XP instead of 1,000 XP. Out of the 66,155 Random players on record, 66,048 of them have achieved 1500 XP or more, which equals 99.83825864% Out of the 37,210 Coop players on record, 1,772 of them have achieved 1500 XP or more, which equals 4.76216071% Based on the data above completing the final task of 'Mighty Prinz' will be trivially easy for most Random players, whereas the vast majority of Coop players will have zero chance. So, once again... Conclusion: 1,000 base XP requirement is not difficult in PVP, but is very effective at gating the reward behind PVP play.

    WGC

    Are you saying WoWS will no longer run unless WGC is running as well?
  5. While I really like using the USN Standards for T6 OPs, I'm enjoying the speed this ship brings to the table. Will definitely be taking her out regularly for Operations in the future. Thank you Lord_Zath for taking the time to review my replay, and also to all the chat regulars that enlighten and entertain us every week. Also want to thank @Fishrokk for his excellent writeup over on YouTube!
  6. You can check both in port via Account Options by hovering over 'Purchase Premium.' Not yet, but they're working on it.

    Game server down? (NA)

    First game of the day, server dumped everyone about 5 minutes in and called it a draw. First one I've ever had in Coop...
  8. This. She was removed as scheduled. SOURCE It would be nice if WoWS had a countdown timer for in-store for special offers like WOT does.
  9. Lucky you weren't detonated...

    Is the Seattle 169k XP or 197k XP?

    The 28,000 XP difference is likely the Cleveland's B hull, which has to be researched before you can unlock the Seattle.
  11. Thanks for the CCC, got same camo as RedSeaBear last week.
