Maybe WOW thinks that the average age of players is under 14. With all these cartoon characters embedded into the game like octopus on the Alaska and transformers, or Japanese cartoon characters  they are turning the game into something different from it's original purpose of portraying naval warfare in a more classical way and pertaining mostly to WWII era ships. I think all these new 'crap" detracts from the game.

oh boi, another one of those players. If you want to have a 100% realistic naval game, got play Gaijin's version. BTW, the transformers era is from one of the older shows, which makes sense considering the age group that most players are at. Its also a win for WG if they are trying to get some younger players in.

if you go to the port carousel settings, there is an option to hide all those non-historical camos. I think there is one in the main settings too. Please update me once you find it.

Just above the carousel in the lower right section of your screen. You can turn off any camos you don't want to see, and it will display the standard permacamo in it's place.

FYI you can also turn off the stupid anime dolls collection from gathering with your dailies. 

I haven't logged in yet since today's update, but if they are still collecting, you can click the azur lane collection and click to stop collecting them and they will stop appearing with your dailies.

I know I did this too. I'm a curmudgeon that came here hoping to just be immersed in naval warfare.

Not navel gazing.

Honest question to those who enjoy historical accuracy of this game. What do you guys think of Gaijin's take on naval warfare? Its pretty realistic compared to Wows, so I would assume those done with the fictional events here in WoWs would at least look into it.

the problem from my understanding (i have played naval battles over there, but its quite a bit ago now) is that its balanced way worse then anything wows could ever dream of. the grind is generally also a lot worse.

I like my "cartoon" captains though one I have has an anoying voice (that teddy bear looking one) that I would like to turn off that voice but not the others.

I like two of the girls, one is actually real but with a cartoon look. I would like to know what they are saying.

Ah yes, the old boomer concept of "Cartoons are for Children."

Go away and come back educated.

Dude- It's not that i have a problem with Navel gazing it's the Japanese and others Anima fascination with 12 year olds with Gigantic Breasts.. (TM). It's basically fing weird and it's all over the place.

Utter trash.  They pretend it is realistic and then force the combat ranges to be so ludicrously short that armor is useless.  Watching CAs creep along among shallow coastal waters and islands, exchanging fire at ranges that are absurdly short is terrible.

Basically, WoWS is more realistic in many of the ways that count because of the sacrifices required to make the other game playable functionally removes many of the design elements of the ships they are supposedly modeling so accurately.

A badge of honor, lol. :Smile_trollface:

Do people that give the angry emote even realize that it actually counts towards the total positive vote count? LEL. :Smile_trollface::cap_haloween:

Wow, that... sounds like one of those biggest ironies of the decade, or something, lul. :Smile_teethhappy:

But I digress. Last I heard, we really shouldn't talk about that forbidden competitor's game here... lal. :Smile_hiding:

Ok laugh about it...

What we have today was built by those who came before, many times with hardship and sacrifice that we, today's "softies" can't really grasp because we have no idea.

Keep laughing, ignorance is bliss.

If you look at High School Fleets battle and ships and not so much the plot its far more on the realistic side then most WW2 era movies made in the US.

to bad we didnt see a Grayhound collab.
