It's just the Armory/Clan/Inventory tab open, WoWs uses external browsers for some menus.

Could be analytics.  If it were mining, you'd see high CPU usage.  Also, mining crypto in a browser is worth damn near $0.00000000000000000001

I think the most troubling thing about that screenshot is your playlist.

The port/menu screens just have zero optimization and try to make as many frames as possible. An fps cap mod supposedly fixes it.

In case there is any legitimate concern regarding this, to be very clear the WGC does not use your machine (any one else's) to mine Cryptocurrency.

That's just what you want us to think.

I, however, use WGC's machines to mine cryptocurrency :Smile_trollface:

Mostly correct, except the browser is embedded.  cef stands for Chromium Embedded Framework.  SOURCE

I don't think the concern is necessarily about the WGC as it is about the fact that the game itself uses 99% of your video card while sitting in port displaying mostly static objects. I mean, my video card usage goes down when I go into battle and there's all sorts of things actually moving, and I'm playing in 4K.

It is a legitimate concern, and while I'm glad that you're assuring us that the game center doesn't do it, can you shed any light on why the game itself exhibits behaviors that could be interpreted that way?

This is as close as Radar_X can actually come to flat out calling OP a moron.   

If WG was doing this there are so many people that run resource monitors while gaming that the spikes in usage would have been instantly recognized.  This is a completely thread.

It's true. WG has also been known to steal people's RAM, so make sure you download some more whenever you finish playing WoWS.

Thanks for the heads up.  I'll download some ram right after I change my muffler bearings and blinker fluid.

I'm having images of TRON-like Klondike Gold-diggers with pickaxes and such. What else do you think all those settlements and factories on the in-game islands are for? :Smile_trollface:

I am still perplexed on why the Port has so much lag compared to actually playing the game.... Seems poorly designed and implemented IMHO and I can see why players wonder about what is going on..

Having Britney Spears and the Chairman or the Board on the same computer may have caused the computer to become bipolar.

OP, watch out, your computer may go HAL 9000 on you.

@Radar_X thanks for the comment. I had no idea what the OP was talking about.
