    What are the commander specializations

    It's just the ship they're assigned to. If you buy a ship that comes with a commander, or win one in a SC, it will be assigned to that ship. Buying a captain in the arsenal assigns them to the T1 cruiser of his nationality. To move them to another ship, you have to retrain just like any other captain.

    Chance or Coincidence?

    You think the matchmaker is deliberately placing you on bad teams/bad MM because of the flags you're flying? Lol the stuff some of you guys come up with.

    Match Maker

    Permacamo, which allows playing T10 without losing credits. At ~$25 a pop it's a reliable income stream. They got $50 from me for 2 of them, and I otherwise spend very little on this game.

    Lenovo Laptop can plays decently?

    There's nothing special about a "thinkpad". Different models have basically the same specs as similarly priced laptops. It's very much a commoditized market. Lenovo's gaming laptops are branded under the "Legion" label. The difference between a generic laptop and gaming laptop is the video card, but WOWS isn't especially demanding on the graphics card, so it will probably run fine.

    mini map

    Why would you want to disable your detection indicators if AA is off? This would be completely pointless.

    DM legendary module

    Radar mod is slot2. Pretty useless slot for DM (dmg ctrl mod1/steering/rudder). Legendary mod is slot6 (range/reload).

    DM legendary module

    I run the range mod and tried swapping for legendary in CBs last night. For me it wasn't worth it as there were several situations where ships were just out of range. If you have been running the reload module, however, and are used to the shorter range, it's probably a decent option. The increased acceleration was very noticeable.

    DD's in coops

    Exactly. I really don't get why PvE mains get so upset when people say it's easy mode. It is. That doesn't mean it's not fun. It is. it's just not a challenge. The only real way to lose is of you play off hours and get a bunch of bots on your own team. And team play/spotting isn't necessary given the bots will rush in. Pick a spot on the map that isn't too isolated (so you don't get focused on that flank), then sit and wait behind a cap. Inevitably you'll spot a cruiser first, who will fire at max range once he sees you. Then the DDs will pop up. Finish those then it's a race to see who can finish off the BBs. I've been playing a boatload of coop recently, pretty exclusively in the Helena, to knock out the RN missions and don't think we've lost once. There's been lots of times where people have said "I'm going to A" or "What's our plan?" Though I don't reply, the truth is "it doesn't matter". It every man for himself. Get as much damage as you can. You're going to win anyway.

    Note that if you are playing clan battles, there will be another free respec for all ships at the end of the season. Worth playing 1 clan battle as that is all it takes to get the free respec.

    New Player Advice Requested!

    I think the most effective advice for new players is how to aim properly. This should be a required tutorial. I was several hundred battles in before I learned the relationship between shell travel time and the ticks on the aiming reticule. It's worth watching Notser's video below to get a detailed explanation, but the cliff notes version is: Go I to settings and change your crosshair to Dynamic When you press shift to zoom in and aim, take note of the shell travel time if the shell travel time says 9, put the 9th tickmark on the reticule in the center of the ship and fire your guns This assumes the ship is travelling at 30 knots. You'll have to adjust accordingly as you learn to gauge ship speed

    A Good Game Gone to the South

    Server population has been static for some time now. What population statistics are you making up?

    Is "campaign 1" on the PTS the Mighty Prinz campaign?

    Hmmm... I was just going by what was in the Events section on the PTS, which I know has been wrong before.

    Is "campaign 1" on the PTS the Mighty Prinz campaign?

    Yeah I got it by accident playing the first battle. Was lazy and didn't even look at the directive rewards. Hopefully I can complete the campaign now for the dragon flags. Thanks.

    Is "campaign 1" on the PTS the Mighty Prinz campaign?

    Any idea whether the Shinonome will be a requirement for the PE campaign on the 7.12 live server? I've completed all the campaigns except for Honorable Service, because I wasn't that interested in the Shinonome. I'm actually farming for the add'l rewards in the other campaigns, but if the Shino will be a requirement I'll switch gears towards that.
