    DDs and spotting XP : Nonexistent

    The DD has to be spotting the ship when it gets hit. If it gets in the spotting range of the ship firing, the DD no longer gets part of the damage. In the after battle report, you can see how much damage you got from spotting. I have been surprised sometimes when I thought I was spotting for damage and I ended up only "looking" at the target ship, LOL.

    Embedded Chromium Browser - eh?

    I believe it also displays web content in the game if you select something that needs it. As an aside, I have never figured out why players expend so much energy complaining about WGC. I have been using it since becoming part of the the WGC Beta testing and yes, there were some rough times with it during development. I appreciate the automatic error reporting and it has removed some potential pinks by noting a system or internet crash. With multiple games and clients it makes things pretty convenient for me. Oh well, each to their own.

    Team Aware can be sort of distracting. All of a sudden a bunch of lines with arrows start appearing, outlining someone's suggestion of where to go. Probably good for a team with a designated caller.

    Coal burning a hole in my pocket

    Salem has a bit better heal and (front plate) armor than Des Moines and is profitable in PvE. Even though I have DM, I do not regret buying Salem at all. Georgia is a lot of fun and has Massachusetts secondaries. This is an enjoyable ship that I enjoy playing. Nothing like hitting speed boost and brawling around in a cap. I really like driving her. Thunderer has a big punch, but I haven't gotten the hang of it yet. Not sure if I am glad i bought her, but that might be because I am not a fan of "traditional" BBs. Thought it would be an opportunity for me to like the heavier RN BBs, but that hasn't happened. (I have Warspite, Nelson, Hood, and DoY and have not been enticed into going above Tier 6 in the researchable line.) She is a port queen because I tend to push in too soon and/or inappropriately and get deleted quickly while doing dismally low damage. A purchase I regret Jean Bart is meh to me for some reason. I keep meaning to take her out more often, but keep forgetting to. The jury is still out because she is a bit fun. Smolensk makes me feel guilty when I drive her. Hilarious, but feels like cheating in Ranked. Personally, I am trying to decide between Marceau and Yoshino myself. At first, word was that Yoshino was not very good. I am noticing that more and more players and YouTubers are saying it is a pretty good ship. I have hesitated to get her because IJN CA/CLs and I don't get along too well. I was originally planning to go with Marceau, but I am dubious about my abilities to contribute at Tier 10 with a DD. Hopefully this thread will help me make a choice other than buying both with the coal and coupon I have. (DISCLAIMER: I have fallen into the seductive trap of playing a lot of PvE. All of these ships turn a profit in PvE and are good at fulfilling various missions quickly in that mode. I also don't think it is far to inflict my level of skill on my fellow Captains at Tier 10 too often.)

    ST 0.9.7, KITAKAMI

    Wow, 40 floating landmines travelling slowly for 15 km. Will be interesting trying to avoiding hitting a friendly. I remember the first time I used long range slow torpedoes. A minute after the skirmish was over and I was halfway across the map I get a notification that I had hit and sunk a friendly. They had not been in the AOA or even travelling towards it when I fired on the enemy ship. Fortunately, I never repeated that error and would end up holding fire on many a sure target after that due to the proximity of enemy ships. At least Benham torps are faster and the range can be cut down a bit.

    German Carriers: Early Access

    We complained about HE rockets decimating DDs and starting fires on everything. They give as rockets that won't start fires and don't do much damage to DDs and we complain again. So fickle. "When successfully used, these are capable of inflicting heavy damage to enemy citadels. However, they may also ricochet or fail to penetrate armor when hitting a target at an acute angle—in this respect, they function in a similar way to armor-penetrating shells. When striking the thin armor of destroyers at 90-degree angles, they will often overpenetrate and deal 1/10 of the maximum damage.

    cherry blossoms

    Far easier and more straightforward to design a ship as opposed to programming multiple bot actions. Cherry Blossom includes an extensive air battle that couldn't be removed. In Narai, WOWS pretty much removed the planes altogether. And, WOWS is working on Night Battles:

    Having Cherry Blossom back would be nice, too. I liked that night battle.

    Lessons from my first attempts at streaming.

    Didn't realize you had started streaming - I'll have to add you to my list. The choppiness is from your equipment not sending out all of the frames - dropped frames. Your equipment will not be able to achieve the highest settings . There are many streamers that use two machines - one to play the game they are streaming that is fed to another one that does the broadcasting/encoding. Changing the bitrate settings and resolution on your setup will eliminate the dropped frames. You might try setting it at the lowest bitrate and resolution and moving up from there. If you don't have another computer to view the output coming in from the internet, you can always use your phone (on wi-fi). Out of curiosity, have you checked your internet upload speed? Most plans have much slower upload speed compared to download. For instance speedtest.net shows mine is currently 194 Mbps Down and 10 Mbps Up. I currently am streaming an Xfinity show and have WOWS running. (P.S. If I were you, I would consider how someone that refuses help, support, or appreciation is sometimes perceived. There are quite a few people that like supporting a streamer - they like to be able to help someone that is trying to accomplish something. And many streamers invest what they get into equipment that allows them to increase the quality of what they are producing. The money does not go into their pocket, it goes into providing a better experience for the viewer. Don't intend to offend or direct, but I've interacted with you for so long I feel like a friend. And this is what I would say to a friend.) https://streamshark.io/obs-guide/stopping-dropped-frames https://blog.streamelements.com/8-obs-tips-to-make-your-stream-run-smoothly-a8d634b34bce https://www.obs.live/articles/2019/4/11/how-to-reduce-lag-while-streaming I am assuming you watched the four lessons on streaming produced by World of Warships?:

    Dockyard, Decisions, Decisions

    The Starter Pack is available until you complete the FIRST PHASE, not Stage. There are building phases as rewards for two of the Directives . In the Pack, phases cost 1,000 Doubloons each instead of the normal 1,750 each.

    Odin and Steel: Who is the starter pack for

    I almost made the mistake of thinking I had until the first Directive is completed. The Starter Pack has to be purchased before the FIRST PHASE is completed.
