How does anyone use the search on this forum?

  • You need to play a total of 10 battles to post in this section.

I must be missing something. I cannot ever get any results when I try to search for words, that are MORE than 3 characters. Do you have to fill in every box? I'd like to know if there is any word on when Team Battles will start back up.

I just search through google. It normally works fairly well.

The search function isn't the best, using Google to search will work better. From what I have heard is it won't be starting up again anytime soon.

Goes to Google, searches, World of Warships forum ranking. 

Digs through results, normally finds answer. 

 

The search function for any forums is generally borked but can be hit or miss even on good day.

The forum searches that work well actually use Google. The WG forums don't use Google and the effect is obvious.

Most dont. Google searches the forum better than the forum's own search. :D

It looks like WG slapped a little lipstick on a SQL database query engine and called it a search capability. Google is waaaay better and easier to use.

Nyet. Search is cheating....:trollface:

Seriously though, I sometimes wonder wthis wrong with people. They post questions here that they could have had an answer too, simply by typing the question into google.

Makes me wonder if this is the result of the information age and information overload, people want to be fed small, easily digestible bits of information and absolutely don't want to do any research themselves. Would explain a lot about current society....:amazed:

Search function here is broken just like WOT forum search, never have been able to get it to work correctly, and then when you don't use it out of frustration and the knowing that its broke, you will get those on the forum that slam you for not using the broken search function, yep, makes sense.

+1 .... 100% agreed... I've tried searching for a couple different topics and the threads it returns as matches are so far off it's ridiculous.
