    Some (Fair?) Criticism For WG.

    Me too. Was coming around an island in a DD the same time as a bot Loyang....Pan-Asian..deep...why am I sinking....

    Shoot I almost forgot, War Gaming, can we get a button in Coop that will let us pick a game with only bots?

    Some (Fair?) Criticism For WG.

    That explains a lot. Playing during the day I occasionally see games with only one or two humans. Most of the games are full of people and we banzai charge at the bots. Hoist the speed flag, select speed boost and slam the W key.... Sometimes there is a lot of pushing and shoving as people try to get in position. I really enjoy games with 1 or no humans. Challenging but a lot of fun. My best game (1301 base xp) was with a Yamigiri and one human teammate. It was a glorious battle! Playing during the day is a stroll in the park. My win rate over the last year is probably hovering around 99.9% in Coop. Losing a game happens every few months. Fellow players are generally very good. Even if I potato a game the rest of the team wins by a big margin. Player education would help some. How much I certainly couldn't say. This is a challenge for WG. Part of the issue is that the game keeps getting more complex. When I started in 2017 we probably had half as many ships, no subs, no sap, no _____..... The list keeps growing. I am fortunate enough to have 3-4 hours most days to play and keep up with the game. I could spend 40+ hours a week trying to keep up with all the updates, missions, twitter, public tests. blogs and streaming. The horse has bolted from the barn. I don't think WG can ever get it back. Another part of the issue is also misleading information. Here is just one example. If you go here: https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Hsienyang you will see this " However, the most notable tool the Hsienyang and other Pan-Asian destroyers have are their deep water torpedoes. While they cannot hit other destroyers, they are lethal against all other classes of ship and have higher flooding chance. " "Being a Pan-Asian DD, many DD players may be fooled into thinking she has deepwater torpedoes" https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Loyang Here is that game I mentioned. The last bot standing was the Annapolis. From 8km I sent 18 packages with 427,788 worth of potential damage... (23,766 x 18 torps)

    I have seen the same thing. Does that matter in Coop? I usually get a chuckle when I see someone doing strange things. More credits and XP for me. And, if these people are happy doing what they are doing....great... more power to them. You are right, "Sophisticated players would hardly ever make these mistakes..." On the flip side, not everyone is that good. Consider this power curve. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_law

    Would agree.

    Not necessarily, the person may have simply forgot to switch. People are not perfect. We all make mistakes, we can get fatigued, and distracted. For awhile my cats would jump up on my desk or try playing with the cables.. As you can imagine it is harder to play when the cat is between you and the monitor. Sometimes when I am playing in Coop I will stick with HE even when AP would yield more damage. This happens a fair amount when trying to get fire damage for a mission. It is also good to remember that part of the player base is older and some players may have a disability. Best not to assume too much. Cheers.
  7. Even in Coop Subs have a huge advantage. Was in my Mino today when a bot sub decided I was the next victim. It was just ping, torp, torp, torp, torp, ping, torp, torp, torp, torp, ping, torp, torp, torp, torp........... The three bot surface ships firing at me did much less damage. WG really needs to balance bot subs and surface ships. Here is a screenshot of another game with just surface ships. The potential damage was almost 700,000. Actual damage was 500!!! That is about a 1,400 to 1 ratio. Balance, balance, balance.....

    Are you sure? I thought everyone who plays warships drove a Tesla.
  9. Is the econ change working for WG? I think they are still waiting for the analysis from the mainframe computer.

    Maybe not today. In the coming months we might see some really good prices on cards. We might even see some budget cards for under $100. I hope people realize that system requirements might change rather quickly. Back in 2020, WG dropped macOS support with about 4 weeks notice. I am sure they lost a few people. You never know when some new hardware or software requirement (operating system, software tools...) will come along that requires WG to change the minimum system requirements.

    There is a fix to this issue: A. WG could buy everyone a new PC or B. Let the servers do all the work In other fantasy news Doubloons are now 10,000 for a dollar...

    Saw this on the internet. Their problem is obvious. They installed the Schrader Model instead of the Shader Model. zn4rf Jun 30, 2018 @ 12:58pm Directx 11/Schrader Model 5.0 it can be possible that your graphics card / chip does not support that with its current driver. I had that problem on one of my laptops and since the driver wont get any updates it is impossble for me to play the remastered on that machine. https://steamcommunity.com/app/570940/discussions/0/1728701877489402347/

    Once they release the new patch it gets installed on my PC as soon as I login. Patch 0.11.7 should be here in mid August. Have you been able to delay a patch update?

    No I did not miss that it was 2015. When selecting the game from the list you need to scroll down past all the 2022 to 2016 games. Is the 2015 version of the game more or less demanding when compared to the current version of the game? Given all the new details added since 2015 I am thinking the current version is a bit more demanding unless they have been able to optimize their code.
