    Super test Commanders missing

    Once again.... I don't have the captains What discord server? I got the ships dropped into my port and a few hours later an email.
  2. I got an email explaining the Super test pan-european DDs. I am having fun testing them. HOWEVER, I did not get the special captains mentioned in the email. Support wants me to contact my "curator" , NO idea who this is. @d_gladkov you are the only one I talk to on a regular basis.... ideas?

    WoWS Mac Wrapper Bugs and Feedback Thread

    I let things sit and eventually the armory showed up ... once it did there was not a repeat of the problem.

    @d_gladkovWith the latest update, the armory is not accessible. The anchor icon just spins and spins....I can <esc> back to port. There are some crash at the end of game. But the work does seem to be paying off!
  5. Take your time at the beginning of the match. In the first 4 minutes, the enemy team is more "organized" and will focus the first ship spotted. CVs will be scouting, etc. A DD will get deleted if they are visible in the first 5 minutes. Go slow there are speed settings other than Full throttle, and stop. Half speed allows you to react to torps, turn, stop, etc. Avoid being in the open. Use islands. You have guns not just torps. I have killed so many DDs who are trying to torps me in another DD. Sure sometimes it works, usually I can dodge. You don't need to use your guns this is really true in Clan battles, where the dd needs to be invisible. In our clan, standing orders are to kill DDs first, then radar cruisiers. Don't launch everything. So long as you have a set of torps ready, then you are a torp threat. I see 3 sets of torps go by, I know that shimakaze is my lunch and I can rush him. (This is why I love the Somers, it looks like a gearing but it has THREE sets of torps not 2 like the gearing.) Know your escape path if you are detected, sometimes backing into the cap is a good idea. Do not contest the cap. Let the other team take the cap and then take it back. A stationary DD in randoms is usually killed. In clan battles you can count on team support. Radar, sonar, air detect range. Know them. remember that a cruiser can close 1 km while you are turning around. Smoke is a torp magnet. Expect torps 35 seconds after you smoke up. Know where those torps are going to come from (RPF commander skill helps) Don't use smoke while capping - it just tells me where to send my torps If you are going to use smoke - 1/4 speed AND deploy it before you are detected. I have killed a lot of DDs that waited until they were detected before smoking up.

    Some of the more delightful ways WoWs is harder.... disappearing ships! Can I buy this camo!

    Any recommendations on graphics settings to avoid issues? Right now, I am unable to play clan battles because of this issue.

    Everything was improving on the Mac Client and then bam... the latest update has been a mess. Diagonal lines across screen and 2-3 second pauses every minute or two. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1226xtjC03KcZrFbnnM3vEpPPhesK-XUM/view?usp=sharing

    Constant game pausing - anyone else having this problem?

    Well now it is happening while IN PORT!
  11. I am constantly experiencing game pauses. I am going along then the game pauses for 2-3 seconds. It then resumes for a while then another "pause". It makes it really hard to reliably play a DD. It is less damaging in a BB. The game never actually crashes.

    Why People In NA Were Confused By Ship Building Boosters

    And you know what .. only in the US does $30 mean 30USD. In Canada, $30 means 30 CAN. Oh the shock! This is the basics of localization/internationalization.

    It would be even easier if WG just realized the best format is with the MONTH presented in text. "6 Jan 2020" and "1 Jun 2020" will never be confused with any each other.
  14. I am sure you will get over it. You might be a unicum - I am only an average player. I completely ignored the PR event.
  15. ... 84 people now.... I wonder if I can scrap the PR for steel? :-)
