  2. Hi there! If you are a new player, allow me to welcome you to World of Warships and to point out some of what you will experience here. I will preface everything that follows by telling you that I am not a great player. I am perhaps slightly above average. But I have been around a while, have been active (albeit with few posts) on the forums, and have played a lot of games here. World of Warships recently having been added to Steam, I expect we will see an influx of new players. Maybe you are one of them. If you have been playing games online a while, you likely know that there are often issues with what can be loosely termed as "toxicity" among players, in the game and on the forums. Not everyone is rude or hyper-critical, but those that are can poison the experience with just a few lines of text. So, allow me to suggest that you do your best to ignore it when you see it, particularly if it is directed at you or your game play. In game there is a function for reporting players. Make use of that if you feel it is merited. But try not to engage in a shouting match with another player. It really never helps. The fact that you are here, reading this, suggests that you are one of the relative few interested in engaging in the community beyond simply playing the game. Please consider this forum an opportunity to learn about the complexities of the game. There is a lot of knowledge in the people that visit here regularly, and you can tap into that. But there are a few important suggestions I would like to make. Forgive me laying them out this way, but I believe these are important: 1. Claims that the game is broken or that a ship is terrible because you are not doing well will generally not be well received. Such posts, if I can generalize on behalf of this forum, are usually viewed with a jaundiced eye, the impression that because one person is having a hard time everything should change to better suit them difficult to be patient and understanding with. This comes from having seen such posts many, many, many times. As an alternative, a simple declaration of "I need help with X" because I do not understand it or am not doing well with it" will generally receive helpful hints and suggestions. Trolling is frowned upon. Posts designed to be incendiary or divisive will often result in your being labeled as a troll. This can make it difficult for you to receive constructive feedback on your non-troll posts. Avoid being a troll. 2. Understand that this is a game of surprising complexity that is covered in a veneer of arcade-game simplicity. Some players will never scratch beneath that veneer. Your being here suggests that you want to delve a little deeper into the game. You will find a lot of people here willing to help you do that. But please try to avoid falling prey to the temptation to write a "this game is bad because" post in the style mentioned in #1 (above) while you are learning about the game. 3. Youtube is your friend. Type "WoWS how to (insert your ship name here)" and you will likely find multiple different videos from various contributors, each with something you might find valuable. 4. Information is your ally. You can find a great deal of information at: The World of Warships Wiki. Take some time and get familiar with the ships you are playing. And learn about the ships you are playing against. Just got your butt handed to you by something you did not expect or see coming? Don't rage about it on the forums, learn about how it happened and how to prevent falling prey to it again. 5. Be Patient. This cannot be overstated. There is a lot to learn, appreciate, and enjoy in this game. Trying to learn and experience it all in a hurry is almost certain to be a frustrating and demoralizing experience. Take your time. Play lots of games in low-tier ships. Don't rush into higher-tier play until you really have a grasp on what your current tier has to teach you. There is no great reward for reaching Tier 10. Sure, the ships are better. But if you rush to get there you will not understand the fundamentals of playing at that tier, and you will be playing against players with many thousands of games under their belt and a deep understanding of how the game works to rely on. Learn all the fundamentals you can before you approach high-tier play. You are much more likely to enjoy this game long term with this approach. If you are a veteran of the game I hope you will understand what I am trying to do here and that I am asking for your help. This is especially true if you have a position of leadership (CC, Youtuber, Super-Unicum, Unicum, Clan Leader, Prolific Forum Poster, etc.) or any other relatively high-profile position or standing. Please consider that the culture in a hierarchy is generally top-down. Those in the spotlight are being watched, and likely emulated, by those that admire them or aspire to become like them. What tone and attitude toward our fellow players, new players in particular, are we demonstrating? Is it the one we want to demonstrate? For most of us the answer will be yes, wherever we fall on the spectrum between helpful and critical. But if you are considering this for the first time, remember that you can decide to present yourself however you want and that the way you present yourself can and will have an impact on others. Please know that I am not calling anyone out. I understand that there are many different personalities and that my view is not the "right" one, or any more important or valid than yours. I also understand that there are times when being blunt is quite appropriate. I am just trying to shine a light on something and sincerely hoping for your thoughts and input, our collectively finding a way to help new players that are interested in learning about the game and becoming a part of the community the goal. How might we offer those interested a way to get help, to learn about the game, and to access some of the accumulated wealth of information locked in your minds in a structured and easy to find way? How might we point new players toward resources and experienced players in order to maximize the chance that they will become a part of our community? For example, one idea I had (not sure it is a good idea, but it is an idea) was to provide an email address for new players to send game files to an experienced player asking for constructive criticism. Thoughts? I realize there are a great many efforts already in place along these lines. In no way am I minimizing their importance or effectiveness. This includes the recent request by WoWS NA here on these forums to create a new-player training regimen, among others. Thanks for reading. I know this is a longer-than normal forum post. Respects, Am
  3. o7, captains! I am excited to announce the launch of my new YouTube channel! Check this thread often (you can choose to follow it if you like), as I'll continue to update it as I publish new content :). For those who don't know me, I am a World of Warships player who has been playing since the Closed Beta Test. I already serve the community as a Wiki Editor and a Supertester, but I feel like I need to do more. Therefore, I have created Zath's Replay Theater. The goal of this channel is to provide feedback for players who want to learn more about the game and improve. I am not looking for "ZOMG TOP DAMAGE NA" kinds of replays. Instead, I want to focus on the "average" player and their games. While not the best player in the world, I can definitely help teach people by providing a second opinion or pointing out things that might not have been considered. I will comment on: - Use of flags/camo/commander skills/consumables - Positioning - Target priority - Map awareness - Ammunition selection - Communication Ultimately, the goal is to educate players and help everyone succeed in the game they enjoy playing. Want me to check out your [current WoWs version] replay? Send the file (or replayswows.com link) to lordzathna@gmail.com and if it is chosen, I will upload it to the channel! It can be any game mode, any class, any ship. My goal is to post 2-3 replays per week, typically on the weekends. There are no fancy edits, no memes, or background music - just straight replay commentary. To enable replays, visit https://na.wargaming.net/support/kb/articles/517 I commented on several replays as a part of the recent STW 1 year anniversary tournament. Feel free to visit Zath's Replay Theater and check them out! Any and all feedback is always welcome as I continue to grow this channel. Anything in particular you would like me to focus on? Let me know! I also have several goodies to hand out from the recent Let's Battle Tour. Stay tuned for announcements and your chance to own something special! It's also extremely exciting that Niko Power is collaborating with me, allowing me to highlight a video each week. The player who sent in that replay gets a prize - 5x of each special economic flag... check it out! Playlists: Because Fun:
  4. Over the last few days, I've begun using premium consumables only if absolutely needed. Like, DC2, for instance. Instead of using it all over the place, and I have plenty, that's not an issue, I'm only using it on BB's. I'll use DF2 in OPS, due to the rudely high volume of cv's and their ebil lil sky hamsters. What this is doing, and hopefully will help others with as well, is causing me to pay MUCH more attention to my ship, my surroundings, my ammo selection, and my speed, because I can't just flippantly pop a consumable whenever I want to. It's making me a much better individual player, and also a much better team player, since I'm paying more attention to what goes on around me. It's also helping with the tunnel vision I get at times, as I'm not zooming in constantly, and it's helping me aim as well without going into zoom as I do when in it. I'll pop into zoom, get the line I want, and then pop out, and just hold that line. I can keep up my fire while still being engaged in the battle at large. It was difficult at first, having been so used to using premiums all over the place, to adjust. However, I feel it was very much worth it. I won't do this in Ranked, under that particular circumstance, time is vitally important, however, the increase in skill and awareness is still there, so I end up not needing, say, the DC2 as much. I encourage anyone feeling like they've hit a skill wall to try this out, I truly feel it will work for anyone, if they're willing to do it. Peace out, fellow captains! o7
  5. Team Play?

    This is suppose to be a team oriented game,.. when the statement could not be further from the truth All I have found is there is green and red which ever colour is wiped out first wins. The game needs a revamping to the point where a person has to pass grades by proving they know what each ships roll is by actually doing it for a set period once they have passed that move on to the next like a training room full of bots and a player has to accomplish missions to advance once they passed all training they can move into Co-Op and play with a live team to beat bots using what they learned in training room. Once they have had so many game's in "Co-Op Battle's" and completed a measured set of Team oriented Goal's they can advance to "Random Battles"... ((( Much Like We Do In Mission's Just Much Much Grander))) Once they enter "Random Battles" they can/have improve their skill's there too,.. and once so many mission's and or game's are done they can then start "Ranked Battle's"... Sort of like you do in "School"... You do not advance to the next grade until you have all your classes passed. By the time they hit ranked they have played every type of ship and know what they can and can not do,.. so they know how to "Best fill their roll on a Team" and know what has to be done. It will never be done but it would certainly obliterate any of this smart/foul mouthed ego hyped chat Because if they fail at that point they know why and what to do next time around. The way it is now someone that has never really played can go pick up a T8 BB (((Which is insane > Like giving the keys of a Alcohol Dragster to a teenager and expect them not to get wrecked and take the ones around them with them))) It would be a graduated system like the "Daily Mission's" but on a larger scale. It could be "The World Of Warship's Battle College" To better understand what I am trying to say watch this. Especially the first part about the DD (Atataki?) we may never see again and why. Definite Revamping as they suggest just a whole lot more involved in player development "The Right Way" Sincerely: NorthBayite In Public Test > a.k.a.> NorthBayite1966 on eu server If it flies it will be huge but I believe the quality and knowledge of player's (Team Mates and Play) will be soooo Much Higer. P.S. I am an old man so if you are going to rip this Idea.... "Please" be gentle

  7. This is a series of interviews with some of the players both from the forums and youtube who have either excellent game guides or videos on how to play the game and do it well. If you'd like to know more about how to succeed at World of Warships, check them out! Full playlist below the video link.
  8. Hi All: Do you know someone you think would be great to introduce to our community? Someone who brings good things to the game, helps other players or has wisdom to impart? If so, let me know and I'll try to sit them down "Between Two Warships". Introducing a new series for Motorboating with Mammeries, where we'll have a few games and do interviews with various celebrities and influential players from within the World of Warships Community. We'll get to know them and talk about various aspects of the game, as well as other hopefully interesting tidbits about themselves. In our inaugural episode, we'll be speaking with Quaffer, a World of Warships Alpha Tester and long time community contributor, who has made a number of helpful forum posts on controls, aiming, gameplay, navigation, and many more. His instruction will be very helpful as new players come in to the game during Open Beta, which should happen very soon. Come join us to hear Quaffer's thoughts on the game and check out his posts in the forum.
