Anyone dislike the new bow wave?

After giving it some thought, I like the new stern trails *okay* (not sure they're a big upgrade, though), and while I appreciate that torpedo trails are now more visible, I'm not sure destroyers are quite so happy.

But I must say - I think the new bow waves look just horribly cheap and cheesy - a pixelated, 2D, low-frame-count mess that does nothing but detract from the overall very nice job done on making the ocean look good, and the ships look better. I do hope this is merely an experiment and not a finished product, because it's silly. 

*Edit* They also still can't seem to get shell splashes right. It's well documented what these things look like:

Well IMO, I like the new stern trails, Torp trails and the Bow wake, But to each their own.:Smile_honoring:

I just think it's too translucent. Bow waves are typically closer to solid white.

It all looks good from above, but from the surface, the bow waves aren't as pretty as the stern wake, but I can understand that being difficult to make look good.

One thing I think would be neat, but won't happen, is if wakes would be there even if the source hadn't been spotted. Aha, the wakes indicate she went that way!

I am just happy that WG is trying to make it look better, they are getting closer it is starting to remind me of my time out at sea.

I've noticed that when you aim at dds, you see less of the side of their ship due to the waves.  Makes it a bit harder IMO to aim at them.

Big improvement over what we had before, that's for sure.  Looks quite nice.

All we need now is the roostertail at the back of the boat when it's going full boogie.

Honestly I am not really in the boat that these new GFX interfaces are nerfs per say to destroyers. It doesn't make much of a diff to me.

 

However I really do not like the new splashes. I find they look cheap and I am really sad they changed them. They now evaporate mid air which really sucks IMO.

Is it an improvement from what was there?  Absolutely.  Is it perfect?  No, few games get that detail correct.

The shell splashes were changed into the insta-drops they are now, because some people complained they took too long to go away and made it too difficult to shoot at a ship obscured by them.

As for the bow and stern foam, IMO it looks far better than before, and more like what one would see on the real thing.  Just wish they were longer.

Yes, any opinion contrary to your own must be a troll.

I like the new bow and stern wakes a lot better than the old.  I don't like the reduction in shell splash.

Next there will be a call to reduce the amount of smoke French BB produce when they fire, some of them are completely obscured for s few moments after firing their 16 guns
