  1. Not enough People on the Test Server, 5min wait time for a 1vs1 or if you are very lucky a 3vs3... The requirements to get the rewards take too long to fulfill this way so guess a lot of folks passed on this PTS... Stability wise i had no issues myself, but that would also explain the low participation. Found one Bug, might be just a missing variable in PTS: Because of above mentioned lack of participation I didn't feel spending more time on PTS today.

    My 100 Mega Box Haul!

    I got the Haida in one of the two free containers we got today. Looking back at last year when the only ship I got from around 60 containers was the Mutsu (which i never play) I think I already lucked out for this season and will pass on the containers. Yes flags and camo's would be nice too but not worth the money for me personally. Wish you all good luck with the container RNG
  3. I switched from tripple fullHD setup to a AOC 35 inch (3440x1440) about a year ago. Only negative thing is still playing CV but that will change soon (TM) anyway. Depending on how far away you are from the screen a 34 inch with 2560x1080 might be too big and can you see the individual pixels. It will have the same height as a 27 inch 16:9 and most of the displays in that size will have a 2560x1440 resolution instead of 1920x1080 just for that reason. So IMHO, you might be better of with a 28 inch 2560x1080 or a 34/35 inch 3440x1440 especially if you also use it for work. That said, sounds like a decent IPS panel according to this review: http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/lg_34uc79g.htm How WoWs runs, really depends on your hardware (GPU/CPU). If you are switching from a 1980x1080 you will increase the resolution and with that the GPU load by about 50% so just keep that in mind. I am happy with my ultrawide screen and would never change back.

    Yup 403 for the sign up and you can't even discuss this because the forum post doesn't exist.. ;)

    Daily Reward Not Received

    Todays daily reward was 5 Camo, yesterday 50k credits. The 5 Halloween Containers were for Sunday. So odds are you already gotten them. Got confused with that too because this started on Halloween and not on September first. Might be more clear if the line down to the next reward would turn yellow too?

    How to get 5 starts on "Saving Transylvania"

    The more ships there are in the circle the faster Transylvania will go. There is a green bar top center that shows that.... With randoms you usually see half the team in the circle because they want constant repairs, making Transylvania go too fast and eventually there will be too many enemy ships to sink before they reach the circle...

    RNGesus showeth no mercy.

    Well they are not making any money anymore from me because of this system. Why would I buy Containers in the Premium Store when in my experience I just don't get lucky with that RNG. Sure you can say the camo's and flags are worth the $ you spend and the mission is just a bonus. But since I usually don't need extra camos and flags I personally would only reconsider buying containers again, if there was some sort of hard cap that ensure's that at least in 1 of X containers there is 1 Mission or special Item.

    Server Overloaded???

    Had the same issue here. Closing and restarting the game seem to have solved it... Well either that or WG fixed it. Just dis- and reconnecting didn't work...
  9. It seems to be a hugh improvement to the Rendering Issue. On the live server i see a delay between 3-4 sec between the ships appearing on the Minimap and in 3D. On PTS it seems to be more around 1 sec or even below. Not sure however if the reduced load on PTS Server has an impact on the matter. I didn't notice any artifacts at all, so i guess if there are any it sure didn't effect my game play. Over all, great job. Looking forward to seeing this fix on the live server ASAP.

    0.7.8 Public Test Bug Reports

    Container Progess Bar seems to have an issue with UI Scaling At 110% the progess bar was showing more XP than I actually had: Tried 100%, 120%, 130%, 150% and 200% and they all show the correct Value: It's not a big Issue really, but odd enough to report it. Same root cause might have impact on other components?!? Wanted to add the python.log but the tool didn't find it. (This most likely is related to me moving install folders to another drive. Will do a clean reinstall for the next session)

    0.7.8 - Public Test Feedback

    Anniversary: Anniversary stuff is nice. Who doesn't like free stuff. Dasha as a commander is nice too. Would have been even nicer if she would have different languages for each nation. Wouldn't mind the accent. I got an error the first time I wanted to buy US Dasha for 2nd time. Question is should that even be possible? Tried it for other nations and could not reproduce the error, meaning i could buy several for the same nation. Without Specifications this is really hard to test. Also when you buy Camo's, Patches or Flags there is no sound effect like when you buy a Commander. Bug or feature? Additional Content (Shipskin) Filter in Port: Could not test it, since appart from the two skins you have to buy with copper (Rank 1) there are no other special skins on PTS. But i assume it is still not possible to mount those camo's and benefit from their perks when you have those filters active. Would have been nice if you could still use them but just not replace the looks with a Type 1, 2 or 5. Also still no filter for the French "The Maid of Orleans" Skin on Richelieu. I apreciate the artwork but it just feels wrong to see that much gold on a battleship, sorry. Ranked Battles: Don't like to see Tier VIII and X again. With the current Matchmaking that ignores player skill it is just a drag and already made me stop at Rank 10 in the last season. The higher the Tier the worse it gets if the good and poor players are not distributed evenly between the two teams / sides. A lot of players these days seem to be out of their comfort zone in T8 and even more in T10. T& or / would be way better, even if that would mean that certain Premiums should not be allow to keep things balanced. The seasons with T6 and T8 only were far more enjoyable to me and I would like to see that again. It doesn't all have to be about Tier X! Due to the "crappy"... ahh sorry i mean random Matchmaking i stopped playing ranked on the PTS after two games so can't provide any further feedback. French Cruisers: So you nerf the relaod on Charles Martel and Saint-Louis from 10sec to 12sec and in return give us a 15 second reload boost module with a cool down of 120/80 sec? Not a good trade. Both ships are not that powerful at all. Charles Martel already feels weak in T8. Saint-Louis is one of the few T9 that i actually like playing, but a 15sec reload boost every 2 min won't make it OP. But I guess we can't have nice T9 ships Like Saint-Louis and Alsace. A suggestion could be to include tier 6 in the ranked battles. It has a lot of fun ships with firepower too, and could make for an interesting matches UI Scaling: I play on a Ultrawide (3440x1440) Display and really like the ability to change the scaling. Good Job. Only minor cosmetic detail is that the ship Icons (top center) don't scale well: 200% 120% General Feedback: Would also be very nice to see some updates on bugs that have been fixed with each PTS so we can test that too, for esample i am still waiting on an update on the Ship Rendering and Visibility Bug which is still a big Issue. While i like new free stuff i honestly would rather not have any events for a month but see some really annoying bugs/issues finally resolved. Some sort of comment post on the feedback we provide here would also be nice. Just so we know that our feedback is actually being read and we don't just waste our time.

    Same here... As someone else posted being kicked from the server during a game they either have an Incident or doing unannounced maintenance and don't know what a graceful shutdown is. Edit: Nevermind, it seems to be back up again
  13. Noticed that the rewards for PTS 0.7.7 are already available. https://worldofwarships.com/en/userbonus/ Thank you. Always nice to get free stuff. However i noticed that for completing both missions with 3+ Stars in both Part 1 and 2 i got 10 instead of 12 special flags. https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/common/public_test_077/ Looks like for one of those I only got 1 of each flag instead of the 3. Not complaining, just reporting it. Thanks again. Btw: Really cool that you can earn the rewards again in Part 2 even when you already got them in Part 1.

    I agree, Narai is way more challenging and probably too hard if you're not in a division. On PTS I often had too many teammates going after secondary objectives and needed several attempts to just get 3 stars. Too many enemy ships at the base. If you don't have a CV or dedicate one cruiser to go after the carrier and one after the supply ships your team will often end up getting killed. It would be better if they would either slow down the convoy you need to protect and/or dedicate more of the enemy ships to defend the secondary targets. This way random players at least would have a chance of ignoring the secondaries, focus on the main objective and at least get 3 stars.

    Narai is really just to troll players right? While a coordinated group might even be able to finish the mission (with a lot of luck) without the secondary objectives in all the times i have attempted it with randoms it was just a fail. You already tried the bots switching ammo to AP in Jerry Blossom and it didn't work there! Why would you think it would change now? Either go up to T8 or just drop some waves and the AP. Really WG do you even try these Missions yourself before you put them in the public test?
