  1. I'm playing Savage Battles a lot and noticed there are no summary statistics for this game mode in my player profile. I'd like to know my victory % mainly, for various ships. I guess they didn't open up the stats for a temporary game mode.

    I think WG, to ensure their massive CV rework was going to be a success with their CV-centric players, had to err on the side of OP initally then tweak down their combat-effectiveness as relevant feedback and stats poured in. That's where we're at now. The re-balancing I think CVs need are as follows: Remove their OP AA and give them one deck gun for defense, take away their planes and give them fore and aft torps instead; reduce their ship size to a smaller, tubular hull with a proportionally smaller surface detection radius, replace their strong deck armor with the ability to submerge for defense. Surfaced, they can conduct brief attacks or spotting duty and, while underwater, can perform inherent passive sonar giving nearby enemy locations without providing assured acquisition to other teammates. With these changes, I think the majority of players would accept CVs a lot more than they do now.

    Announcing SKIPPER

    Me sitting down to read a seemingly innocent news article on the WOWS website....

    Why all the New Camouflages?

    It would appear WG is rewarding us with a lot of new camos in onesie-twosies for completing combat missions and such. A lot of them are really nice looking. I'm a particular fan of the Shadow Lurker. I hope to get a lot more of that. Did I miss some formal explanation why they are rolling all these out now? Are they wanting feedback, is this for a limited time only? In any case, it's nice to see more camo variety. Thank you, WG.

    Ship Camoflage - What are your favourites?

    Dear WG - More Shadow Lurker, less Ocean Soul. Thank you.

    Over Penetration??? wth IS THAT???

    WG should make an ultra-realistic game mode for the next April Fools event.
  7. I got all ranked battles emblems unlocked after 68 games. So, yeah, it's bugged. I was watching the counter increase by several points per game from first emblem until the last one unlocked. But since I have over 210 unique stars in ranked mode over several seasons past, I'm not complaining, just reporting.

    Torpedo Acceleration on the Black?

    Torpedo range for Black torps is 13.7km, so TA would reduce that by 20% would leave it at 10.96km. Not as bad as you were thinking. I just got the Black too and am considering using TA. I think the extra speed would be helpful, and I'm not that big on torps that go beyond that range anyway since they spread out so much they become much easier to dodge especially when travelling at such slow speeds. I think these torps are better suited for closer targets so I don't mind giving up a little range for improved speed. True, though, TA only improves your torp speed from terrible to just really bad. But, perhaps, the short torpedo detection range of .9km will become more valuable with slightly faster torp speeds.

    Clan Battles: No 500 Steel for you!

    My clan also planned to show up twice to play in a prime time of another region. Each time we found the events postponed or cancelled. What's the point of lowering the requirements to be rewarded 500 steel and 15k coal without also including those that planned to but, through no fault of their own, didn't have get a chance to do so during time WG advertised in advance? Not all clans can muster a large enough force to play during the week (in times other than the NA prime time), and the two weekends we did plan to play in the EU or RU regions were cancelled. It seems like WG is just lowering the number of players that will be upset about the premature closing of this test clan season with this action. Well, good for those that got it, I guess.

    Let’s Talk About "Ranked Sprint"

    Imagine if WG allowed rank 1 players to keep playing, only MM always tries to stack one team full of ranked 1 players and the other team of non-rank 1 players. One side fights to keep one team out of r1 and the other fighting to prove themselves worthy to make it in.

    Anti-Guidance System II Bugged?

    In another match I had a DD firing at me, I fired the consumable and his subsequent shots went in a bunch of haywire directions, but not at me. I think enemy ships that spawn after you use the consumable might not be affected by it. That's my new theory.
  12. When playing the Urashima (DD) in the Sunray in the Darkness Halloween event, you have at your disposal the "Anti-Guidance System II" consumable which, as it states, stops enemy ships from firing their main guns at your ship. The enemy DDs, however, seem to not be affected by this consumable at all which seems to me to be a bug. Can anyone else confirm this?

    Dont be this guy in ranked

    I only clicked on this topic to make sure the OP wasn't referring to me as 'that guy'.
