  1. I recently got a new ship and commander from twitch prime as well as some crates. I don’t know how to use the crates, or assign the commander to the new ship. Also, assuming I get camis I don’t know how to use those either. THANKS
  2. MacWrapper 2.0 Problems -- HELP PLS

    Hello guys, I just bought a brand new MacBook Pro 3.1 i5, OS Version 10.13.4 and typically always played on my PC but followed the instructions for downloading to the new Mac and it installed and opens fine - HOWEVER - it has me listed on the Asia server. I need the North American server. Is there a way to change this? There is no drop down menu to select a different server at all. I don't have a profile in the Asia server and have over 5000 games into the NA server. No way I am starting over LOL. I know there is some spectacular computer folks on this forum that likely know there is a quick fix. Please help ! Thanks in advance, Western1168
  3. Hey Guys! I got a channel I am looking to grow, I enjoy talking to new players mostly showing them tips and tricks. Everyday I do a WoWs live stream on YouTube under the channel Sforcecubed! Just looking to get new players to the game, and watch someone who's very small so they can watch and hopefully lean form. Thanks for your time guys and I hope to see you on todays stream! Included is a link to yesterdays stream.
  4. I've been playing WoWS for some time now and I found out the game is on steam for free so I downloaded the game from steam but there was no option to log in via twitch or my wargaming account is there any way to transfer my current progress to my steam account?
  5. I normally don't post on here, but I'm getting desperate. Apologies for the long post. I play all lines, but I mostly play CVs since I'm more of a strategy game person than an action gamer (27% of my games are CV, compared to 26% for cruisers, 26% for battleships, and 21% for destroyers). I was perhaps one of the few people that enjoyed playing strike Lex (for those who weren't around before the patch, it was 0-1-3). Sure, it was incredibly lacking in air cover, but its damage potential was off the charts. I managed to not only set my damage record in it(290k), but also managed to average a solid 85k per round. While Shoukaku wasn't as much of a monster damage dealer, she could still do solid damage while providing air cover, and I love her for it. I boasted 55% and 56% solo winrates on the two tier 8 CVs, respectively, as well as a 75% wr on Enterprise (albeit only 16 battles) and a 53% solo wr in total, so I think I can say I'm not a potato, at the very least. Yet when I got to Essex (still grinding silver for Taihou, which is a bit tricky when you're grinding every single line at once), it's like I just hit a brick wall. That 41% wr is a black mark on my CV record; a valley in an otherwise smooth climb towards higher wtr. I heard good stories about strike Essex and thought it would just be a tier 9 strike Lex with a fighter for air cover, yet I only just got Essex before the patch, so I didn't have time to try out 1-1-3 Essex. I heard all the USN CV players on forums proclaim that Essex would no longer be useless against Taihou. What I found was disappointment and frustration, if I'm going to be honest. At first it thought it was typical new ship blues or the tier 8 planes, but then I realized something else. I just couldn't seem to match the success I had with strike Lex on the new Essex. Hell, I'm actually doing less damage in Essex than in Shoukaku or Lexington. A list of frustrations I have with Essex right now: tier 8 fighters: yes, I realize that Essex's air control is quite solid, and I generally manage to kill more planes than I lose to the enemy CV (usually because I try to bait enemy fighters into rushing in and then surprise strafing them when they thought I was not paying attention), but Taihous, with their faster and sturdier planes, still manages to give me one hell of a fight. I've seen their fighters actually outrun my strafe when they started squarely in the middle of the strafing box they didn't fly to the side to avoid it; no, they actually outran my strafing fighters, like the equivalent of someone fleeing from a cannonball and actually managing to outrun it also, yes, Essex holds my highest average plane shot down per match (26.4) not to mention these tier 8 fighters drop like flies against any high tier AA; oftentimes I hear a squad report being under attack, and the next second 2-3 planes drop from the sky; scouting is nearly impossible, even against destroyers, when your planes are that fragile these fighters tend to get overwhelmed trying both to outduel Taihou's fighters while also defending against Taihou's 3 torpedo bomber squads (I'll be honest, I ignore the dive bombers since their only threat is fire damage and they're fast as heck) tier 8 torpedo bomber: no cross-drop really hurts, but it's something USN CV players have dealt with for a long time, so I'm used to that what I'm not used to is the more consistent exposure to tier 9-10 AA without having the corresponding plane buff to deal with it I've heard some people argue that the tier 9 bomber health upgrade compensates for this, but what everyone forgets is that Taihou gets the same upgrade as well as tier 9 planes and more squadrons simply put, these planes melt under any sort of AA; hell, today a fletcher in a division with a Taihou managed to bag 42 of my planes; the carrier got little more than half of that tier 9 dive bombers I'll be blunt: I find AP bombs to be quite useless at this tier; most battleships are immune, all cruisers have heavy AA, and destroyers are barely affected; at least HE is versatile and still hits hard (1000 lb bombs rock, don't know why they're more inaccurate than IJN dive bombers though) the problem with having only 2 dive bomber squadrons is that stacking damage over time (DOT) is quite a bit tougher simply put, I used to pair 2 dive bombers and the torpedo bomber with the remaining dive bomber in strike Lex and used them to tag team ships, with the torpedo bomber group going first since most people would rather repair floods than fires; then I'd use the all dive bomber squadron to set fires and watch the red ships cook now, since it's no guarantee one dive bomber squadron can set 2 fires, I have to alpha strike any ship, thus giving up all DOT still, they're the least of my complaints If you want information on how I play CVs, I'll provide a short description: start of match move fighters over a cap or between 2 caps with both of them close enough to support each other (but not close enough to get strafed at once) carefully watch enemy fighters, and when they get impatient and rush my seemingly afk fighters, set a strafe if the strafing squad gets engaged and is outnumbered, do a strafe-exit and strafe with my other squadron; this usually works, although I've also had it fail before for unknown reasons (like the enemy squadrons, despite being slightly off the center of the strafe, coming out completely unscathed) hold my bombers back until enemy fighters are down (or unless I know they're occupied elsewhere and can't intervene) target battleships (destroyers if I think they're not paying attention, but generally I find getting guaranteed torp hits on a BB is more efficient than gambling on a destroyer), ignore cruisers unless they have terrible AA like Atago; this also applies to USN BB's and DD's unless I see an AA-heavy ship like a Des Moines using defensive AA, I prefer to press my attacks through dfAA I honestly am not particularly aggressive with my CV placement; usually I'm hiding behind the rest of my team instead of hiding behind an island closer to the battlefield also, I don't run any signals, camos, premium consumables, etc. I'll be honest, I prioritize killing enemy fighters over spreading my planes out to better cover my team (my logic is that once all the enemy fighters are dead, I'll have a clear run for my bombers and can deal with any subsequent enemy CV attacks Recently, on advise of a CV unicum who I shall not name for the time being, I've tried being more aggressive with my play, sending in bombers even if enemy fighters are still up, but all I've found is that the enemy fighters massacre my bombers while my fighters desperately stall before being wiped out by enemy AA I've seen another thread about Essex help (the answer was to play it like a Hiryu), but it has honestly been very little help. With the incoming Midway nerf, I'm wondering if I should simply abandon hope for the USN CV line and treat it like any other line, rather than a line that I genuinely enjoy (like the USN or Russian DD lines). Am I doomed to give my hopes solely to Taihou and the IJN CV line, while Essex is burdened with the disappointment of crushed hopes and dreams? As someone who volunteers on one of the four remaining Essex-class carriers, I sorely hope that won't be the case. P.s.: this is my first time posting here, so please be gentle

    Hello! So.... I really need help on Donskoi. I'm finding it incredibly frustrating, and I miss my Chapayev. Issues I have: 1. Very [edited] forward gun angles. 2. Large profile 3. Kind of short range (for the size) 4. REEEEEEE rudder shift 5. Everyone seems to want to shoot you 6. Crappy reload I'm running reload, conceal, and my captain has PT, AR, DM, IFHE, Conceal. Help would be greatly appreciated! PS. Some statistics for reference:
  9. Was This Charge a Mistake?

    Was attacking the BB at that moment in game a bad idea? My thought process was that, if the Harekaze dies there's going to be a 75 points swing, the QE was going to cap C and the Kiev can potentially take B. Backing out of the channel would've taken too long and depending on the direction of QE's travel, might get spotted mid turn. So trying to kill the QE seemed like a good choice. Especially after checking QE's turret facing and with QE approaching at a favorable angle. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/241453825

  13. Izumo Chronicles: Day ???

    Captain’s Log: ???? It’s not the ship’s fault, it can’t be. All these losses, all the suffering at the hands of fire spewing cruisers and cross dropping Midways. It must be me, it has to be me. Izumo wouldn’t fail me like that, she wouldn’t get my hopes up only to crush them seven games in a row. All I can hear is the distant laughter of Hindenburg as fire slowly engulfs the bridge. Even Admiral Yamamoto is silent, the resolve gone from his face, replaced with contempt for the ship he was given command. Requests for emergency Free XP have been denied. Allied fleets are in port or in battle a world away. For any reading this be warned: Izumo is not what she seems.
  14. Up tiering/Manual drops

    Why do i have to go up against up tiered aircraft carriers as a tier 5 carrier being that im not allowed to manual drop or strafe i am not able to solo carry when placed with any up tiers in my game for example if I (zuiho) and another carrier on my team lets say independence go up against a mirror match why do i get destroyed because my fighters cannot strafe and my teammate is a complete potato and doesent know how to do either even though claiming to have hakuryu he can never seem to do anything. This senario has gone to much and i would like an explanation and maybe even a fix to this problem Sincerely, Nemo_45

  19. I just got World of Warships and I started downloading it at 10:05 AM CST (UTC−06:00). I have been waiting about 5 hours and counting for it to finish installing. How do I speed that up? Thanks in advance, Boatman115
  20. Help need

    How do I change the player list to battleship names instead. Please help and thank you. P.S. there is no name or shame here ... just need help
  21. It is my hope that this guide will help some players out there that might be struggling to reach the level. Even if you are that "good" player, this is a good checklist to go over if you are in a rut to make sure you are doing the things you need to be doing. Or, you can pass it on to others in need of help. This is neither definitive not complete, and I hope to expand on it in the future.
  22. A Newbie in Need

    Ahoy!...Er, ah, whatever you sea types say. I'm new...very new to Warships. I was an avid WoT player for a while, before I stopped playing about a year ago because of a lack of interest. I am, however, a big Jingles fan. And I've seen loads of his WoWS content, so I decided to give it a shot. And? I really like it so far. Its very different from WOWS, and I have some questions for those more seasoned among you. 1. Where do I go? I'm not really sure which nation or ship type to go for. Battleships seem like the likely option; lots of armor and big old guns, not to mention healthy HP pools. But...well I've seen enough "Big Dumb Battleship," moments on the MIghty Jingles' channel to know you cant just fail your way through those and not be punished. Destroyers? Not sure. Looks like they require at least a good deal of experience to play well, but they are powerful little beasts. Aircraft carriers are a definite no. Definitely look to require a great deal of knowledge to play. So I'm looking into cruisers for now, and easing myself into the other types. So... what's a good choice for a new player? Thus far I've played all the Tier I ships, but its obvious that (like in WoT) Tier Is don't really give you much insight into what you'll be up against. I really enjoyed the Bougainville and Black Swan. My first game in the Bougainville I stood up to 3 CPU opponents and won alone, doing a bit shy of 20,000 damage, which seems good for a Tier I. I loved the power of those guns. The Black Swan has those unique AP shells and a rapid rate of fire, which is nice. In fact, the British cruisers seem intriguing to me, having seen them on YouTube. But they seem like they'd be a bad starter line, no armor and being limited to AP shells. What do you all think? How are the French Cruisers? Russian? German? I'm not overwhelmingly interested in the American or Japanese cruisers, I've seen enough of them in replays to see they aren't overwhelmingly attractive. I am looking into American Battleships. Not sure on destroyers yet. Give me some advice? 2. Any "New Player," offers to get? I know WoT had some things like this, and I did notice the "Invite a Friend," option. Any way I can take advantage of those? What do you get and how can I get them? I've been thinking of getting my girlfriend into this, as she enjoyed WoT as well, and we'd like a new game to play together. 3. What's the best way to quote "Git gud"? Are there any newbie mistakes to avoid? Ships/Ship lines to avoid playing until the future? Thanks for the help guys, hope to stick around, _Caesar_
  23. Tech Support has stopped responding

    I opened a ticket on January 6th because the game started crashing with alarming frequency. For the first 23 days I went back and forth with Tech Support trying to solve the problem. No luck. I have been sending them daily updates but they have stopped sending me help, or even acknowledging my issues. They have ignored questions I have asked that might help me solve the problem. My request is: is there anyway to elevate this? I found a phone number for WOWS in Emeryville California, that I am considering calling. Has anyone had any successes getting a help form Tech Support under these circumstances? Thanks!
