    Hi I need some help

    I am a WoWs Blitz player, and if you didn't know, WoWs Blitz players get access to a free starter pack when you download WoWs on the PC. The bundle contains HMS Dreadnought, IJN Katori, HMAS Vampire, 2500 doubloons, 30 days of premium and a commander with 6 skill points for each ship. So I downloaded the game, but I didn't receive my starter pack! I logged off the game then logged back on, but still nothing! I am a new player and have never previously played WoWs on PC, so I should be 100% elligible for this bundle! Screenshots are at the bottom of my post. Could someone help me out? I don't know how to bill a ticket at customer service, if I've done something wrong or if I've missed something, please let me know! I really only downloaded the game because this pack convinced me the game was well worth it, even though I would have bad graphics (I have a bad PC) and that I could potentially lag (hasn't happened yet). So if anyone knows something about this or if they have advice for me, or even have experienced the same problem, please let me know (sorry for the spam)!

    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,
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. I want to change My account name but it says to pay 2500 doubloons is there a free way to do it?
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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

    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?

    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?
  17. 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)
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. So i got Bismarck a while ago, and I cannot figure this ship out for the life of me. I've had 2 decent games in her since I bought it, neither over 95k damage. Other than those two, my average damage is 33k. I can't snipe cause bad range and terrible dispersion, and can't usually push cause I get focused and die. I would wait to push, but the moment I'm spotted, PT goes to 4-6 right away, and get torched and die or loss 70% of my hp in the first few mins. I find her hard to handle and usually end up blundering around and not able to do much. What I do shoot at I miss or bounce/shatter. The one decent game I had was a two-Bisko division with @Avenge_December_7, but other than that one one, it's been really rough. I did well in the rest of the German BB line, even Gneisenau, but I cannot get Bismarck to click for me. I'll try to bow-tank, but the HE spam from every BB out there is real. So that is useless. What am I missing? I am about to quit on this line and go play German cruisers. Help needed!
  21. Hola Colegas ¿Cómo están espero? Espero que estés bien. Hace algún tiempo con la ayuda de varios amigos logre incluir un trabajo de pintura o camuflaje dentro del Modpack Oficial de Wargaming. Y actualmente se encuentra en el nuevo Paquete de Mods o como los Rusos lo llamaron "ModStation". Aquí esta el link para descargarlo https://world-warships.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/WorldOfWarships.ModStation.Setup.exe Foto del trabajo dentro del Paquete Oficial de Mods para WoWs: Me gustaría saber a quién puedo escribir para incluirlo en el juego. Mi idea es que se implemente a travez de una serie de misiones o que WG venda el camuflaje y el dinero recaudado se dona a la Fundación Battleship Texas como si hizo algún tiempo atras o tambien se puede donar a los Veteranos. ¿Qué piensas sobre esto? o ¿A quién debería dirigirme?. Comparto algunas imágenes del Camuflaje. In honor of veterans: Más fotos: Video dentro del juego: Agradecimientos a:
  22. Downloaded the game on my steam account. Couldnt figure out how to use my existing NA account on it. Please help me. Cheers for the Loard of Luck™ Nvm just read the FAQ. Fix your stuff WG. How the hell do you not advertise this before i expended 24 gig of my data limit.(yeah in Australia we have limits by our ISP on data) BIG BOLD LETTERS EXPLAINING SUCH THINGS IS USEFUL. So the steam client is basically useless because of some [edited] WG will spew out. Well played.
  23. Advice for new carrier captains (tiers 4&5) and apologies for the wall of text to follow. So... you finally unlocked a CV and want to be the next Captain Chtholly (https://na.wows-numbers.com/player/1027898162,ChthoIIy/ ). Well, here are some things you should know. Some would say the CV line is very broken. Very unbalanced at some tiers. And the learning curve when you get to tier 6 can be unforgiving. That's when the game gives you the opportunity to strafe with fighters and manually drop your bombs and torpedoes. And until you learn those skills you will be at a most definite disadvantage. But playing the tier 4s and 5s can be a lot of fun. Play them right and you can rack up the wins. Play them wrong and you will hear nothing but complaints from your teammates. CV's can carry a game, but just as easily lose it before it's even started. One is way more fun than the other. 1) Don't play a random battle until you've upgraded at least your fighters on the tech tree. If you don't, you'll be pwned like a wood cutting noob. So either use free XP or fight Co-op battles until you get them. 2) Buy the Air Group Modifications for your upgrades. They are inexpensive and will certainly give you the advantage over many who don't. 3) Captain skills should be Aircraft Servicing Expert, although Dogfighting Expert comes in handy for US CV's. And then Torpedo Acceleration. If you play them long enough to get 6 or 10 skill points then it's Torpedo Armament Expertise followed by Air Supremacy. 4) When the battle is loading, hover your mouse over the enemy ships to see what their AA level is. There are some ships, even at those lower tiers that will absolutely devastate your squadrons. Just avoid those ships until later in the game. 5) Your planes are on a Carrier, not an airport. Which means you can move around. Ideally you want to be in a place close enough to the action to get your planes back quickly, but far enough, not to be spotted. Also, don't forget to check how the battle is going and relocate as needed. 6) Unless you're directly under attack, your priorities should be BB, CA, DD, CV. And preferably a ship that's all alone or at least on the edge of a cluster of ships. That way you limit the amount of AA that will be brought to bare on your planes. 7) When dogfighting enemy fighters, try to engage them over your ships. It will give you the edge in what would otherwise be an even battle. 8) Watch your attack planes go in, if your target ship thinks it's your target, it will turn. Change your attack angle appropriately until you have the shot you want, otherwise it will be a wasted strike. Bombs line up straight as you can and torpedoes from the side. 9) Many DD's and CA's are very hard to torpedo if their captains are paying any attention because they have such great maneuverability, learn which ones are a waste of time to attack. Unless you're playing a IJN CV, they can come with 2 torpedo squadrons, in which case, learn to cross drop. Basically, you want them to attack at the same time, but at a 90 degree angle from each other. You don't have to worry about the angle of attack on the ship, just the timing and the angle to each other. 10) Don't use your fighters to escort your own planes. It's always a losing proposition in so many ways. If the target is that well protected, pick another one. Instead, use them to keep the other carriers planes away from yours and to spot enemy ships. 11) Yes Spot!... Spot spot spot. Especially enemy DD's. It's often worth it to use a returning DB squadron to just hover over an enemy DD that's causing your side grief until it's sunk. Your team will love you for that. 11) Don't attack ships that are about to die anyway just to get a kill. It's a waste of a strike and takes those planes out of the game for far too long while they return to rearm. But Do attack ships that have taken a lot of damage, even if they're on your avoid list as there's a pretty good chance their AA will be greatly degraded. Also, if you notice a ship has just put out a fire, go for a torpedo run. If you get a flood or two you will do tons of damage if not the kill. 12) If there are 2 CV's per side, coordinate your fighters to get air superiority. You can link your fighters to theirs or just follow manually. But as soon as they're engaged make sure you join in as fast as you can. Also, avoid the fighters that have a higher tier than yours one on one. Just press the alt key when they're on you tactical view to see what tier their planes are 13) And finally. As a tier 5 CV, you will occasionally be up against tier 6 CV's. If that's the case DO NOT link your fighters. They will get wiped every time your opponent tries to strafe your teammate. Keep your fighters close enough to your allies to help when he engages, and your strike squadrons far away. Tier 6 CV fighters can strafe for devastating results without dogfighting and can literally wipe out multiple squadrons at a time if they're in close proximity to each other.

    Arsenal Bug

    Hello WG, I have recently run into a problem with my arsenal (and my news page). Every time I click on the Arsenal button, it shows the Arsenal, but it keeps flashing in and out of sight. Furthermore, when I try to purchase something, the Arsenal just shows nothing. Thank you for your time, and I hope you can fix my issue.
  25. Hola Colegas Alguien me ayuda por favor el problema es que Se me desapareció el camuflaje "Aurora" del evento SpaceWarships sin embargo sigue apareciendo en mi inventario: Espero su ayuda o comentarios, Saludos
