  1. CV Rework. It finally made me quit the game.
  2. I'd assume a vast, vast majority of good players use the WG client or the direct WoWs installer itself. I've used it since day 1 of playing nearly 4 years ago. Measuring steam numbers is an indictment of player count, but not a very good one. And as an aside, on the NA server, we had nearly 25k concurrent players at one point, so the 4-5k that are on steam are the minority.
  3. Yes. I'm no where near the top but like to think I accomplished at least something in CB. In 3000 random battles, 700 ranked battles and around 1000 clan battles, I've seen and done just about everything. It's stale, boring, and quite frankly taxing to run or be a part of a team. Giving at most a week or two of notice of Clan Battles, as well as seasons that always seem either too short or too long, with forced queue times that aren't nearly as convenient as people seem to think they are, and with the constant stream of CB into Ranked, I've just been burnt out. I've played a total of 20 battles since the start of September, and have no desire to play any more. The newest "latest and greatest" ships that are released are almost never healthy for any meta, and are almost assuredly overpowered as [edited]. It seems every meta since Season 2 of CB has gotten progressively worse and worse, being less fun to play.

    Help Interpreting Stats

    Stop focusing on your PR and focus on winning. When you do that, the PR will come. PR is easily farmed by players who have no interest in winning. While it is a decent estimator of player skill, it is inherently flawed in the ways it is calculated.

    My thoughts on Friesland

    Aren't you the queue dropping guy? You seem like you're full of great ideas.
  6. Map positioning is probably the main thing that separates unicum players from the rest of the populace of this game. It's very hard to grasp properly, and very hard to learn and implement. Saying that, the best recommendation I can give for you to learn is to ask yourself 3 simple questions before doing anything. Do I have to move, or is the position I am in beneficial? Will moving benefit my team? Will I die if I move or do not move? Of course it's far more complex than that to implement, but these are three things that I would recommend starting with. Remember that sometimes the position you are in is truly the best position to be in.

    Armour made out of element 151?

    If you are not running IFHE with the Jutland, you do not have the penetration to actually pen his hull. You will only have enough pen to actually damage the superstructure. You have improved AP auto bounce angles and pen values, so if you're not using IFHE, fire AP almost always.
  8. All of them. I don't play this game enough to care any more.

    Players like this should be banned

    There is no air to air combat in this iteration of CVs. Queue dropping is basically pointless.

    Winrates effect your "investment". I haven't had to grind a single thing since mid 2018. There is no reason for me to be "invested" outside of Clan Battles. Grinds in this game are for those who haven't previously "invested" the effort or time into it.

    I'll say one thing. You are statistically more likely to have the potato on the other team, rather than having him on your team. There are 11 other players on your team, making for a 11/24 chance, or 45.8%, of him being on your team. There is a 12/24 chance, or 50% of him being on the other team. This is of course insinuating that you, yourself, isn't the potato. I haven't spent a dime on this game since Christmas 2018, and I am maintaining a 60%+ winrate, virtually every session I actually decide to play. The simple fact is that there are people who are better than you, who have the ability to influence a win more than you. This whole tin foil hat conspiracy that WG is "manipulating" MM is quite frankly, laughable at best. I dare you to run MMM and test this theory yourself. A VAST majority of players in this game carry sub 50% winrates in their respective ships, and more often than not, they will be placed on the other team.

    No damage???

    Would need a replay to tell you exactly what happened, but it's most likely either damage saturation or a severe latency issue. In the past there has been an issue where the game desyncs from your point of view, and you may seem to be hitting the target, but in reality the target is several hundred meters ahead of where they look to be. Damage saturation would happen if you are actually getting ribbons for shell hits with no damage. Edit; forgot one thing. If you're shooting AP at him while he was angled in or out, you will ricochet most of your salvo.
