    Ups to Graphics Dept.

    Yep the graphics dept. deserves kudos for an upgrade done well! In 4k the games looks awesome one can only imagine what DLSS and RTX would add....
  2. It's an Acer Predator XB273K 27" 4k 120hz overclockable to 144hz and 4k gaming has spoiled me completely! They've been out for a couple years now about $600 on Amazon
  3. Haven't notice or heard any capacitor whine or excess noise from the system I just built to replace my trusty Asus ROG laptop I've used for years to play WoWs. If anything for games like Cyberpunk and New World it quite good for WoWs I consider it stupid overkill... CPU usage never gets above 35% or 65C GPU memory and useage does indeed vary as others have posted but nothing excessive. System: 5950x over clocked on X570 motherboard. 2 1tb gen4 nvme in raid0 for win10 1 4tb gen 4 nvme as game drive 64gig DDR4 4000 ram MSI RTX3080. Predator 144hz 4k monitor I get a smooth 145 fps in game with all settings maxed out the game looks and plays incredible the island foliage and ship details are awesome.

    3-4 second delay in port at 4K

    What monitor? What are you getting for fps? Game limited by default to 45fps

    3-4 second delay in port at 4K

    What monitor and refresh rate? I assume you've edited the files to get maxframerate. On my system I had a similar issue until I noticed Msi afterburner saying I was using Vulkan instead of D3D11 after a driver update and a reboot things were fine. I do notice my monitors refresh rate flickers a bit until I'm in game then settles down. The game is incredible in 4k so much more fluid and i'm getting 140fps ingame average. RTX 3080 on Acer Predator 27 144hz

    Frame rate / UI question

    I'd look at your settings in n windows I doubt it's the game...
  7. Dear Mouse,

    Several years ago I decided to give this game a shot and  in attempting to learn the ins and outs of it I had the indescribable pleasure of making your aquaintence. I was and remain stunned at the depth and breadth of your knowledge of the game and it's inner workings. I remember asking you if you were employed in the Naval Weapons and surface warfare industry which you laughed off! Your ship reviews were always eagerly awaited and were a determinant factor in the purchase of many of them, I shall miss them greatly. Yet, I also must stand with you and the other CCs in your decision the game has indeed wandered far afield from it's origins with more gimmicks and paper ships now submarines all in the name of profits. The Yukon debacle testifies to the depth the game has sunk to and I'm amazed Chobbitsu hasn't flipped out completely yet either. Mouse, I'm an old 1% biker and learned early that if you won't stand for yourself even if you know you gonna get you [edited]whipped nobody else will or want to. No matter what Mouse stand firm you have so many of us at your back! I'd give alot to have a brew with you and Lert just to find out more of who you are and what your all about but I already have a good idea of that! God bless you and all you've done if you ever need an old bastards opinion I'll be here! I have the honor and priveledge to be,

    Lert & Mouse's Most Memorable Premiums of 2020

    God bless you Mouse for the mention of our fallen comrade @dseehafer he'd be thrilled with your review! And let's not forget your savant partner in crime @Lert as well. Thank you both for making this forum a respected worthwhile place for us all!

    Zao upgrade grind, are you guys kidding?

    I also found this upgrade to be useless and a waste of time except for a certain narrow playstyle. Better to have a dispersion buff combined with a reload time buff for the type 93 torps which is so long they're almost useless that would be a worthy grind.

    Mouse's Take on the Short-List Fiasco

    It is important to remember that WG is a business run for profit and their marketing dept is there to ensure profit by enticing you with programs that are nothing less than a sow with fancy makeup and perfume... Better to offer a crate or crates that say, Missouri or a select couple of rare ships were the only payout I suspect many would pay the price for them even if it was silly...

    buying a new rig..... AMD Vs iNtel

    I'd go AMD either one of those however are mondo overkill for playing WOWS GPU wise..... I'm looking at a desktop build it myself system AMD 3900x on Aorus x570 Master in Lian li Lancool2 RGB case 32gig DDR 3400 ram 2-1tb NVME boot drives raid0 2080 or 6800 GPU 2- 2tb SSD game drives Yeah it's stupid overkill but I play X4 and Unreal Tournament as well

    So this map is still a thing

    So many complaints...This is one of my favorites especially T10 all the wonder toy ships have nowhere to hide and snipe... This is and should be the premier epicenter map!
