    Propulsion Mod help?

    I've run either Damage Control System Mod 2 or Steering Gears Mod 2 on all of my BBs. I've heard the propulsion mod is good for BBs, especially in Clan Battles or Ranked, but I'm not sure what classes or nations of BBs I should equip the upgrade on, as the wiki seems to only suggest the other two upgrades.
  2. So uh, due to lack of better direction I'll be posting this here. Now what the actual problem is: I just reached Account/Profile Level 3 and with it I unlocked the mission system, but after that , and having to dissolve division with a friend due to him having to leave, I selected the "Win 2 Battles for 20k credits" mission and double clicked, with no battle que starting, nor with the battle button given on missions or the battle button at the top of the screen. Exiting and re-joining the game seems to have fixed the issue but it's still something odd happening. Is it the mission system or perhaps the division getting disolved?

    Tips for UK Cruiser Line

    Any tips/strategies for a beginner playing the UK Cruiser line? I'm currently at the Tier V Emerald and I honestly feel like I just get instadeleted when running into anyone on the enemy team, BB blow me up from far away before I can gap close, DD come out of nowhere and blow me up, my AA seems really inefficient against CV's but I honestly die before having trouble with them most of the time, I've only really had success against other British Cruisers. I never sail in a stright line when I am detected, I change up my speed and which direction I am going constantly but it seems to really only postpone death. I know I'm supposed to stick to my team's BB but it's pretty difficult when I start way ahead of them and am faster than all of them even when at half speed. I do not want to say that the Emerald just sucks because I know the fault lies in my gameplay somewhere but it really feels like it does.
  4. Although (because I use a Mac) I cannot view my own replays, I have noticed that apparently I have a general problem with proper positioning while sailing cruisers. Namely, I seem to have trouble finding a perfect middle between (IMO) ineffectually tossing HE from near max-range or getting too close and thus getting destroyed by the whole enemy team (even when angled). Separating my problems into 2 categories: In cruisers not dependent on firing from concealment (like Japanese cruisers, French cruisers, or sometimes American heavy cruisers), I find that I tend to stay at close to maximum range. However, I believe (not sure if I'm correct or not) that this is overall bad for my damage capabilities, as I feel that the further away I am, the less effective I am. In addition, I find that my first instinct when being targeted by any enemy ship is to turn away, even if I don't know if it's just a destroyer lobbing a few potshots at me or a battleship getting ready to bring the pain. This may increase my survivability, but I dislike having to constantly be retreating. In cruisers more dependent on firing from concealment (like British and especially American CLs), I find that my results in a battle are essentially dependent on a) setting up in a place with concealment so that I can shoot at the enemy without getting shot at in return and b) said place having a firing line on a good portion of the enemy team. More often than not I find that either a) I set up in a position with great concealment but effectively zero targets, forcing me to relocate or b) I set up in a target-rich environment but also end up exposing myself too much and becoming the latest snack on a BB's menu. I also use destroyers and battleships, but both of those classes have advantages which allow more leeway in positioning. Cruisers have neither the concealment to do damage without making themselves vulnerable nor the armor/hp to tank anything thrown their way. I'm aware that I will never be able to control entirely what targets the enemy team chooses to shoot at, but I would like to know how to best balance my own survival/aggro-ing the enemy team and my damage output. This, I feel, is critical to my success in both categories of cruisers. All tips/advice are appreciated.

    WoWSLauncher.cfg file

    Hello Captains, While trying to change regions (yes call me silly), I have inadvertently messed up my "WoWSLauncher.cfg" file. Could someone copy and paste theirs ideally EU (but NA server would be okay too)? I'm asking this since re-downloading 20GB + file is rather time consuming when I can edit few letters within that file. Many thanks in advance. This is the section I've messed up: Could you compare it with yours and tell me which section(s) I may need to edit?
  6. It doesn't open past the launcher. Pressing play on the launcher simply results in that little window appearing. Please help, I just wanna try out the new CVs.

    Supercontainer help/luck

    Ive unlocked over 100 containers so far, a mix of try your luck and the other options. So far I've gotten only 2 super containers, and with both of them I wasn't using the try your luck containers. And the rewards in the 2 containers? 50k free xp and 250 flags of some type I can't remember. Meanwhile I see posts of people getting multiple super containers each week, getting free Nikolai's and gremyaschy's while I get rotten luck. I've opened several dozen try your luck containers, gotten NOTHING. The most I got was 5 premium camos. Why does this happen? Why is my luck so bad? Even when I get all 3 containers in 1 day i still get crap. Please help me...
  8. As the title suggests. I have completed the 3rd part of the directive. Yet, I have not received any of the rewards for completing them. Below you can see the screen shots. @iKami, what course of action must I take to resolve this?

    Updates and Downloads are stuck!

    Hello, After a couple of weeks of inactivity on the servers, Ive just attempted to download the newest updates for the game. My update started off fine, and got to 11% where it is now stuck. I have no progress, and there is no download speed being displayed. Wargaming Game Center is using 11% of my CPU and almost 50 MB/s on my disk, but not downloading anything. My download speed is fine, at 120 MB/s. I am also having this issue with my update for World of Tanks. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am not sure where to go next. Thank you,
  11. Hey folks, I have 2.5 questions 1) Guides and or Tips on surviving the early game as a Bismark when up against Tier IX's and X's. I find it almost impossible to push against the higher tier ships, but guides that I have looked at suggest hiding as a BB is damaging to the game. But if I don't push and I'm not hiding behind an island I get picked off at range. In one match I got double teamed by opposing carriers right off the bat and didn't get out of the starting blocks. Extremely frustrating. So any tips? 1.5) Is the Bismark an effective flanker? I've had success as a Gneisenau flanking, but the Bismark is slower, but it's supposed to still be one of the faster BB's, so is this a good strategy when supported by a cruiser and or DD? 2) What is a good ship to pair with a Tirpitz? I just bought an Atlanta and thought it could be used to provide AA for the Tirptiz and try to flank a lot. I also have a Pensacola and could try to grind up that tree and get closer to a Baltimore or New Orleans and maybe traverse like slightly behind the tirpitz and act as a support with AA and radar, but kinda island up down the more center area of the map? Context: I'm a pretty bad WoW player that is recently trying to get better. To this point I mostly just played casually with my girlfriend and we have a pretty poor success rate. Generally speaking with both play German BB's. We both like to push and get into knife fights, but as you'd expect we run into trouble a lot, push incorrectly and die. Now I've been watching some youtube guides out there, specifically looking for ones on how to improve my positioning and identify when the push. I really liked aviaxis' videos on battleship and cruiser positioning and liked his concepts of flankers and more like main line type of ships. After that I found that my Gneisenau is a fantastic flanker as a battleship, had way more success and I have a much better appreciation for spacing and angles. However I had just gotten the Bismark which I have not tried to use as a flanker. I've tried to use it to push the main line like aviaxis has suggested in his videos. However I found I was immediately targeted by CV's, and since I'm playing mostly against tier IX's and tier X's I find I die before I even get a sniff at using my secondaries. So all in all I've found the jump to playing primarily against tier IX's and X's to be incredibly challenging. I'm not sure exactly sure whether my Bismark should be played as a more central push or for a flanking push. Additionally I'm looking for a ship and or playstyle that provides more synergy with the Tirpitz in order to achieve greater success when playing with my girlfriend. Any help or resources anyone could provide would be appreciated.
  12. I took the time to explain 1. Why some think CVs are so weak 2. Why some wreck havoc with them 3. Showing that the skill gap is alive and well, almost exactly like the old CV skill gap
  13. I want to change My account name but it says to pay 2500 doubloons is there a free way to do it?
  14. Quite simply, whenever I play high tier matches, the moment the anti aircraft on other ships starts blasting, all the little particles really slow my already slow 21 FPS. Yes I use a mac, it's not the best, but the update increased my crashing to every game I join. Is there anyway to tone down these effects?
  15. Alright, guys, so I'm in a bit of a dilemma (as always). If you check my stats, you can see that I don't have too many games, and I'm afraid I do not have the time to really dedicate myself to WOWS and grind out all of the ship lines to T10. What I've decided is that I want to grind out one cruiser line to T10 and really master that playstyle so I can join a clan and be an asset in T10 battles. You can see that there are certain cruisers that my stats suggest that I am good at, but that is because they are all mid tier and do not have many battles played in them. So, what I'm looking for is a [not TOO squishy] cruiser line that can ambush other ships with devastating AP volleys (and keep in mind that if you are going to suggest IJN cruisers, you should note that I just can't seem to get them to work. I don't like their long-range kite-y playstyle) OR a cruiser line with long range and high-DPM HE spammers that can farm damage and fires off of DDs and BBs (as revenge for all of the times I've been dev-struck by torps/AP shells shot out from >20km away). Right now, I have a Dallas in port with 15k exp to Helena. I have Pensacola, Nurnberg, and Kirov researched, so I would like if your suggestions remain limited to the USN, VMF, KMS, and maybe IJN lines if you strongly suggest it (no Khaba or Harugumo though, they just feel like... odd ducks). You can check my stats if that will help you decide which cruiser line would fit me best, but once again, take all of that information with a large grain of salt. I appreciate all of your guys' help and support, and I thank you for your time in helping me decide which line to grind.
  16. Probable fix for those whose launcher is stuck at receiving updates. In my case this was due to my university's network's blockage of torrents. Fix is as follows: edit WOWsLauncher.cfg and make the change from <launcher_transport>3</launcher_transport> to <launcher_transport>2</launcher_transport> Very respectfully, Cadet 4th Class Lotofcash original fix courtesy of SurgeryAddict

    Deplorable Potatoes

    Hello possible member! Thank you for showing interest in Deplorable Potatoes. We are a still relatively new clan that is about more than Warships. We are about family, an online family. We play all sorts of games together not just Warships, this is just the primary one. We don't look at stats, we don't require a tier 10...There are almost no requirements to join! What we do require is: Have a Microphone Be Social Be Respectful Be Active Having a microphone and being social is what makes clan play fun and enjoyable. What's the point of playing with people if you can't talk to each other? Being respectful is just a part of being a human being. To be in any clan you have to be active, however, life happens. Just let people know if you have to take a break. We currently have 25 members. If you're interested join our discord and talk to us!

    How to change servers on Mac.

    I just recently downloaded the game but didn't realize I downloaded the Asia server. :/ I don't know how to change it to NA on Mac, and I've been looking all day on how to change it but I'm not tech savvy, so I'd appreciate any help. I've tried downloading the NA server version, but still stuck on Asia, so I assume some files weren't removed.

    My Xmas box hual, Help ???

    Fair Advisory First off, this may not apply to those who did not partake in the Santa box event. For those of you among us who are trying to get legislation pass to outlaw/protect, all power to you guys. Just don't sour the fun of others with your political views. You have been advised For the meantime, those of us who partake in the fun. This my haul, and I am asking for help on the following ships. I got 20 MEGA boxes, IMO this year without the inclusion of premium time (WOWS or WG) it did felt a nerfed. But Value wise its up to the individual the judge as to the value I got back. That is why we have the forums to discus it. So here is my haul. ( yeah I was a little tardy in pulling the trigger but in the end I made an informed decision). 20 Camo -- New years 30 Dragon Signals 20 camo-- New years 875 coal 12,500 coal 30 Leviathan signals 2,000 doubs 875 coal 12,500 coal 2,000 dubs 20 Camo--- New Years New Ship--- T-61 (I need help with this one) 2,000 dubs 20 Camos---- New years 875 Coal 12,500 Coal 30 wyvern signals 2,000 dubs 30 hydra signals 30 scylia signals New ship Roma (Need help with this one too) 30 scylia signals New Ship Monaghan (and help wih this one) And that is it, that is what I have in the notifications tab (checked 5 times over). Just as advertised, you get mega boxes you're going to get the best signals/camos/dubs and a good chance for ships. Yeah I got 3 good ships, I just dont know how those ships fit into my aggressive play style. I may like the T-61, I wish for the Kami for which its in my play style but there is always next year! Spread the joy of the Holidays, I am stocked up on Premium time, I gave myself a treat of Santa boxes. All I can say is thank you to WOWS staff for a great haul. I know I am critical and I am very opinionated. In this situation credits due where credits done.BTW (you not getting a pass for next year WOWS staff, but for now I can say I am content lol). Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa. Happy Hanukkah Happy New year my fellow gamers.

    How should I learn to play DDs

    I have played CAs, BBs, CVs, and even CLs and have gained a level of mastery on some (Hindenburg). But DDs seem to elude me, the Ruskies, I zoom around, don’t help the win, and get blapped by a Chapayev. When I still played the Japanese DDs, I got cornered and blapped, and after 1 game in Clemson, I get blapped. How should I play DDs, and which lines should I start off with, I would really like to learn this rather influential ship class. I think it will help me improve my gameplay, because the best way to counter DDs is to think like them, and the best way to know the actions of a radar cruiser is to be forced to counterplay radar, so I know when the 2 key will be most useful on Hindenburg. Thoughts?
  22. After acquiring this Gneisenau BB, my win rate plunges down very dramatically (win rate for this ship alone is ~30%), My usual strategy is: -Find the side with the most people. -Go there -Snipe some DDs until I arrive (Might as well) -Push and stay angled to as many ships as possible (I die here the most) -Do my job as a brawler type ship and exploit as many broadsides as possible. -if my team is suddenly deleted, I turn and retreat (I die here a lot here too) I am quite new to this game and the videos from youtube don't help a bit as they offer things that are easy on paper but hard to execute. (500,000 credits left till I get a bismark)
  23. Yeah... We're really getting stomped here. Pretty bad when a New York can shoot down half my Tier 7 Ranger planes. Looking through the damage report, Half my T7 torpedo planes wiped out by T5 and T6 AA. Only 59K damage. Came back in a Scharnhorst.. and pretty much the same thing happened, except this time - I got 5 kills and 106K damage. Both Battles ended the same: Base is destroyed. They don't get into the harbor, but they are focus firing from waaaaayyyyy out. .... Does anybody have a working plan - other than div'ing up... ..... My thoughts: DO NOT bring a carrier. They may do a little spotting, but this takes away desperately needed firepower. I seriously thought I could do well, until half my torpedo planes were eaten on approach to a T5 BB.. got two hits - and those planes were shot down too. All I could manage was manual drops on DDs. DO NOT bring a destroyer. You will be focused and killed first. Will be fighting a LOT of cruisers, and not many battleships... like bringing a knife to a gun battle. DO set your ship up to control and suppress fires. Analysis shows I only got 2 AP hits for 0 damage, and the rest was all HE Spam. Fires happened twice both battles. My CV got a fire on the bot Ranger, and it shows that the bot let it burn until the air was clear. So the AI is on 'Expert' mode here. They also have flags and camo, so your first two salvoes will form perfect circles and wash their decks as the dispersion wears off. After knocking out the AA cruisers, DEFEND the base. To hell with the CV and the funky 'special' targets... Just try not to lose for now. I believe 5 stars is out of reach with random assortments of players.
  24. Is it possible to set it where the voice mods only affect your quick chats and not everyone else's on the team? For example, if I set my voice mod to be ARP Kongo, is it possible to make it to where I hear the Kongo voice over for my quick chats, while everyone else's quick chats use the default national voiceover?
