Episode 49: The Smoke Changes Aren't Real

 
 

Hi listeners, we get underway on episode 49 with recapping the events of last week for KamiSamurai and Kelorn's trip to Wargaming NA . They had a great time and touched on some of the great moments the two had while visiting the Wargaming Office and USS Hornet. Both joked about meeting in person for the first time and all the silliness that was had while doing Warships Live. If you missed them on Warships Live, you can go on Facebook and watch the replay of the video and see all the awful flavored soda's that the team was subjected to.

Getting into show topics, we discuss the hot topic issue regarding the recently leaked super test information about potential upcoming smoke changes and Wargamings official statement about the issue. The cast debates the issues of super testing, and community reaction to changes while also making commentary on the needs for Wargaming to have an environment and/or testing vehicle to promote change to the game. Moving on, we talk about one of the newest ships we are testing and previewing. The KMS Graf Zeppelin, which is a new Premium German Carrier slated at Tier 8. This ship was provided to us by Wargaming for testing and previewing purposes and is subject to change. With this each cast member gives their opinion about this ship, and we also break down some of the major points of interest for GZ. Plus we touch on any issues players might be facing when using or playing against the carrier. The topic of carrier competitiveness at Tier 8 is brought up and the cast discusses which CVs might have potential and where Graf Zeppelin might stand with them. Rounding out our show topics the cast discuss the new 0.6.9 Player Test Server patch that is now available for testing. One of the big new game additions is the new campaign to add the famed IJN Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto. This campaign is a permanent campaign similar to the other two available and will allow players to go at their own pace to finish out the achievements to earn this historic commander. Yamamoto comes with special abilities for earning First Blood and Kraken and each member of the cast debates the nature, viability, and whether abilities like this should be in the game. There are also nice benefits to finishing the campaign that allows players to change basic camouflage paint schemes as well as adds a second cosmetic flag to the mix. With this we end the show talking briefly about the operations, campaigns, and the Dunkirk missions noting how nice it is to see so much content that has been added recently outside of random battles.

Thank you everyone for listening and see you next cast!

There was a recent discussion about the slow start of matches and how it hampers esports adoption... Wouldn't a "rolling start" at 1/2 speed be a way to reduce the time to first contact? Perhaps this is something that is not possible, but I thought it might be an obvious solution.

 

Just adding my thoughts.

Episode 50: Supremacy League

Hi listeners! In this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast we have joining us from the Supremacy League. Vas79, Cael, & Sterling. Regretfully Vas had microphone issues and we had to use chat and have his colleagues speak for him. Introductions proceed and the guest crew talks about how they came about forming what is now known as Supremacy League from their days and experience with another game, Mech Warrior Online (MWO). Discussion is had about Wargaming's attempts at both Team Battles and Ranked and our guest state their reasoning for hosting SL and continues plans even after Wargaming's Clan Wars comes out.

Moving further into the major topic for the show. The cast talks about the difficulties for administrating such a large endeavor and the many issues with trying to come up with fare, competitive, but entertaining balance rule sets for the seasons. They bring up issues like the current smoke meta and quality of life for carrier players and how the SL team has been trying to formulate and normalize a better rule set to make game play better. The guest crew goes over a few ideas including the idea of a point system with point break downs for each ship, as well as a possibility of allowing Tier 9 Carriers for CV players. The SL team expands on the current frustrations for CV players, competing in the Supremacy League.

The cast ask our guest crew why Tier 8 is the competing tier for SL and they go over the strengths and weaknesses for that option as it relates in a competitive environment. A debate is had on the differences between Tier 8, 9, and 10 as well as a continued discussion on what other competitive leagues have done like King of the Sea and Fight Night for example. Tier 9 is brought up and further debated as a possibility and discussed further.

We round out the show with talk of Royal Navy Battleships and the line that will hopefully be released soon. HMS Nelson is discussed and confirmation that it will be unlocked via Free XP per Sub Octavian. Before closing, the guest crew talks about the upcoming Season 5 for SL and it's scheduling, roster sizes, and tiering. Thank you everyone for listening and support for this cast!

Episode 52: Notser washes up on the Podcast shores

Hi listeners! In today's episode of the podcast we make like a beach as to see Notser run aground! Notser once again joins us for another exciting episode as we talk about the new World of Warships Blitz, Royal Navy Battleships, Ranked Season wrap up, Kii, and the New Pan Asian Destroyer line.

Kelorn starts off interviewing Notser checking up with his amazing pace of content and getting his break down and opinion on WoWS Blitz for mobile devices. Notser sets expectations of what a player might see and gain from playing the mobile version and future status of that game line, production schedule, game state and play ability.

We move into the main show topic with a great discussion on Royal Navy Battleships and what they bring to the game so far. Kami and Notser give their opinions and experiences from recent play and set the picture for what players might expect should no major changes occur. Vanessaira recount more experiences and the show debates the play style of the battleships. The Cast goes into details about the concealment and gun calibers changes through the tiers as well as differences from play style of other line battleships. The Tier 8 Battlehship HMS Monarch is brought up with regard to competitive play and we debate the possibilities giving its advantages and weaknesses. Other battleships are again discussed including HMS Warspite, HMS Queen Elizabeth, as the sister ships are different, as well as the play style of HMS King George the V. Drawing similarities to the Scharnhorst, KGV users need to utilize different shell ammunition types and the Cast talks about how to use this to a players advantage.

Another battleship that was added to our topics was the new Imperial Japanese Navy Battleship. HIJMS Kii, a tier 8 battleship that will be similar to HIJMS Amagi but more dispersion, better AA, and torpedoes! While on the subject of IJN, the cast talk's about the Yamamoto Campaign and what challenges will be present in trying to complete it.

Wrapping up our show, we discuss the newly announced Pan Asian destroyer line. This line is said to be testing a new type of torpedo for the game that would run deep, and not be able to hit destroyers or light cruisers. There is a great debate on the show and destroyer players Vanessaira and Notser give their take on the state of torpedoes and meta for current destroyer gameplay. Thank you very much for listening and check us out next week for another exciting episode!

Episode 53: Yuzral and the Tragedy of the Graf Zeppelin

Hi listeners! In for this weeks episode of the World of Warships Podcast. We invited Wargaming EU Community Contributor and YouTuber Yuzral, to give us some Euro prospective on recent game events and news. Kelorn leads the interview and ask Yuzral how he got into creating online content about gaming and doing Wargaming products. Yuzral talks about getting into World of Tanks, and a competing tank game as well as doing much content for the Star Trek Online MMO.

After the interview we jump right into our topics, which starts with the KMS Graf Zeppelin. An anticipated ship that has seen many changes during testing and which has, (as of the recording of this podcast) just been released to the public for sale. The cast gives their critique of this decision and give further thoughts and opinions about the ship and what it might need to be competitive and worthy of being the German carrier. While on the topic of German ships we touch on SMS König Albert and its imminent removal from the game as Wargaming considers the ship too overpowered. We go over stats and draw comparisons to Imperator Nikolai another premium ship which was removed after being deemed way too powerful for sale.

Moving on to our other topics of discussion we bring up the Royal Navy, their battleships as well as heavy cruisers and discuss how the RN envisioned and used their naval assets. HMS Nelson has been released and the cast discusses the ship as well as their opinions on it and RN Battleships in general. We continue the show by talking about the new missions, challenging hard mode like challenges, new content, and the Yamamoto Campaign. A discussion is had about the Challenges difficulty and comparisons to the level of difficulty that the EU region gets in contrast to the other regions.

We finish up our show with talk of a historical mode that many of the Wargaming Community Contributors have been testing. This has been a ton of fun and we hope that some intrepid mod maker out there could help assist with what LittleWhiteMouse has been spear heading and envisioning for a nice alternative to other game modes present in World of Warships. If you are an UI Moder and able to help please check out LitttleWhiteMouse's post on Reddit and the Forums about this.

Thank you for listening and see you next cast!

Episode 54: Kim Jong Kami Returns to America!

 

Hi listeners! For this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast we have our glorious leader, KamiSamurai returning from his Korean tour. Kami gives us the run down of his trip to his ancestral homeland and oh yeah NoZoup! NoZoupForYou joins us for this weeks episode as well, and the cast takes a moment to reflect on trips abroad.

Moving into our main show topics for this week, the cast gets into the red hot Graf Zeppelin incident. Where Kami and Zoup get to give their take and input on the situation. Kelorn and Vanessaira reflect on the aftermath and give perspective to what transpired, and positive steps going forward. The cast members and Zoup talk about being Community Contributors (CC), the CC program, being critical of Wargaming, and the incident between Wargaming and iChase as we bring the subject to a close.

Getting on the topic of new game changes and additions, the podcast talks about one of two new premium Italian Battleships that are set to come out this year. RN Giulio Cesare a tier 5 Italian Battleship is an exciting new development to the other stated Italian Battleship (Still confirmed for 2017 release by Devs) RN Roma. Kelorn ask Vanessaira about her excitement for more Italian Flavor being added to the game but Zoup spoils it, by going on about battleship over population. The cast continues the discussion about the new changes being tested, talked about, and being implemented with regard to IFHE, Radar, and Smoke Firing changes.

Before wrapping up the show, Zoup had to cut his visit short but left us some closing thoughts and the rest of the cast reflected on Wargaming recent openness on their Dev Blog. Giving the community more information and being up front about changes being tested as well as possible ideas to fix issues with the game.

Thank you everyone for listening as well as supporting this show, and we hope you will join us for the next cast!

I have not finished listening to the podcast but wanted to share a thought about the WG reaction and some of the discussion on the podcast:

Cultures are different across the globe. This statement sounds obvious, but it also implies that corporate cultures are different. In some cases, very different. I have spent more time than I care to remember working with European companies and can confidently say that the immediate WG reaction to the Graf Zeppelin did not surprise me.

 

I have found it European corporate culture, in general, avoids owning mistakes,  is very hierarchal, and is fairly authoritarian. Therefore, I was not surprised with the WG reaction. The concept that companies should own mistakes publicly, address PR concerns, and reach out is a defining American culture... and even our companies fail with this.

 

I do not know how WG is structured from a corporate leadership perspective, however, they may want to diversify some of their core leadership roles to include a diversity of cultural thinking. At a minimum, as suggested on the podcast, huddling up the different region heads should be a standard practice any time a corporate response is required.

 

Keep up the good work, I always enjoy the podcasts.

Thanks for the feedback, as someone deep into US Corporate culture, i can tell you that people like to avoid owning up to mistakes here too, but that's slowly changing in light of the instant reactions from Social media and the like.

 

Hopefully WG got some valuable feedback from the incident and how the community reacted

Episode 55: IJN Kii and the Evolving Battleship HE Meta

 

Hi listeners! Welcome back to another episode of the Warships Podcast. In this weeks episode we discuss a range of topics, news, testing, and recent changes to the World of Warships. There is no special guest this week so the cast focuses on getting to the topics quickly.

We get our topics started with the continued test of the new premium tier 8 battleship, HIJMS Kii. The cast talks about the new ship they have been testing and get into the finer points and qualities that this ship brings and compares it to its tech tree counter part, HIJMS Amagi. A good debate and discussion is had about tech tree ships and premiums and how they should and shouldn't be different. As well as the debate on premium ships being better then their tech tree counter parts.

Moving on with the topic of battleships, we touch on what the show and many in the community are seeing, and that is the rise of High Explosive (HE) being fired at an alarming rate from battleships. The cast debates this topic and talks about the health of the game since the introduction of Royal Navy Battleships and what maybe could be done to change this style of game play and in turn, encourage more aggressive play style from the community.

We continue by discussing the next part of the Yamamoto Campaign which now focuses on destroyer game play requirements. The cast goes into advice and techniques on how to help players accomplish these task and play destroyers in general to an effective level. The discussion continues with the new changes being tested on the Player Test Server (PTS) and wraps up by talking about the new Clan Base and Smoke change.

Thank you so much to everyone for listening, supporting, and see you next cast!

Episode 56: A Crazy Week of Updates!

Hi listeners! Welcome back to everyone and sorry for not having a show last week. Multiple members of the crew have been sick and has taken a toll on our ability to deliver content, however we are back! With much to discuss, the cast get to sailing with the plethora of topics starting with HIJMS Musashi. We speculate and go into the possibilities for the ship and what it could be if its Tier 9 or 10. After our speculation the crew reflects on just how much the game has changed as well as all the content that has been added just in this year alone. With all the new ships and ship lines, plus the Co Op and Clan Port/Battles, Wargaming has not stopped to take a break and it does not look like they are slowing down anytime soon. An exciting time to be a Warships fan.

Cruising right along, the cast gets into topics, discussion, and debate involving AP damage from Battleships versus Destroyers. This topic brings up game play and a healthy debate about game balance, as the cast gives their views and feelings on it. The crew touches on the new testing phase for KMS Graf Zeppelin noting GZ Test I and II and some of the changing being rolled out for testing. More to come with this ship, so keep a look out for it. While talking on the subject of changes, the podcast crew gets into the new patch which brought about the Clan Port but noted that the smoke changes did not go through. Wargaming is still working on this so we will have to keep an eye on the test server as these things are always subject to change with Wargaming.

The topic of clans and the new port is continued, with the cast debating and discussing clan structure, the new resource system for clan and overall clan balance. While on organized play we talk about the lastest news from Supremacy League and ending on a serious note. Ship Comrade has suffered greatly due to Hurricane Irma passing through Florida. He really needs all of our help, and if you can please help him in anyway you can. Thank you!

Episode 57: What in the Clan Battles is going on in here?

Hi listeners, for this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast we discuss Clan Battles! Finally after waiting all this time World of Warships gets the highly anticipated clan competitive mode that has been long sought after by its player base. The cast breaks this topic down and discusses what is currently known and also speculates as to what might be with this new competitive mode.

 

Getting started on the Clan Battles topic the cast jumps into the controversial issues, beginning with the exclusion of the Carrier class from Clan Battles Season 1. This has drawn widespread criticism and praise from supporters and opponents alike. The podcast crew gives their opinions as well as echo and discuss some of those from other Warship Community members. With the limits to CV's, the cast touches on the other limits and that is that one team will only be able to bring up to 1 Battleship per. Great discussion and debate follows and Clan Battle's Meta is also brought up.

 

While on the subject of Battleships, the cast moves to discuss BB meta and what ships will most likely be viable in this new competitive setting. All the BB's are hashed out with the strengths and weaknesses they bring and how they will stack in a Cruiser heavy meta. With the ship type of Cruisers the cast shifts into what will most likely be the prominent class seen and breaks down what they feel might be the viable Cruiser options to be played in the meta. Last class in this topic is Destroyers and the crew expands on the Cruiser meta and how DD's will play a role in it and how a Destroyer will have to play with the excess amounts of radar, hydro, and other non Anti Air abilities that Cruisers will now be free to load up with out the presences of CV's.

 

Regretfully with time constraints the crew was not able to touch on two new ships we have been testing but will get to that topic in the next cast. Thank you everyone for listening and look forward to having you next time on the Warships Podcast!

Episode 58: WGA Trevzor returns to talk Reshade

 

Hi listeners, welcome to another episode of Warships Podcast. For this show we are joined once again by the one and only Trevzor (aka Friend of the Podcast ;D) who graciously came on the show last minute to cover a recent hot issue regarding the temporary ban of players using ReShade.

 

A recent update has made a mod such as ReShade trigger Wargaming's anti cheat system and players have been giving feedback and discussing modifications in World of Warships. Trevzor took the opportunity to come join us and talk about this subject, as well as address some of the concerns or issues people have. While talking on the subject of modifications, the cast touched on other mods like Angle mod, as well as the Running Lights and debated the uses in competitive settings.

 

Covering other show topics the cast discussed some of the new ships they have been testing, and these include the Guilio Cesare, and Huang He. The crew goes into details of their testing and give opinions on whether the ships are in their current state worthy of purchase and fun to play. The Russian Battleship October Revolution is mentioned, as a new mission set is now available to participate and/or purchase similar to how the Graf Spee event was.

 

Finishing out this week show. The cast talks about the Supremacy League and the upcoming match ups as well as streaming schedule of those matches which will be live to watch. Thank you again to all of our amazing listeners and backers. Look forward to you listening to our next cast!

I enjoy listening to the show, quite informative. I listened to the last one with Trevzor and wanted to make a few comments. This first bit I posted under a different thread but it is relevant to the podcast so am cutting & pasting.

Just an observation on how WG is conducting clan wars. I had to laugh that tier 10 rentals are going to be available to people who don't have them. Add to that they won't be able to mount camo and it seems ludicrous that not only will there be inexperienced players in those ships, but you put them at a disadvantage against the more experienced players who have tier 10's....... Not sure that was thought out well. It is that or Wargaming is pandering to the tier 10 players by just giving them targets to farm. I honestly think it is shameful.

The second thing I wanted to say because Trevzor mentioned that they want people playing tier 10. I don't plan on doing that. I am grinding my USN ships up thru tier 10, buying the ship, and leaving it rotting in my port. My reasoning is that higher tier gameplay is old, stale, boring, and not profitable. I currently working on tier 9's and once I have the 10's, plan on playing somewhere fun, most likely midtier Co-op. I want tier 10's in my port to take advantage of the giveaways and that is it. I play upper tier PvP only to get quickly thru the grind, farm campaign/mission rewards, and only to play to those mission objectives. By not offering a method for PvE players to participate in campaigns/missions, I feel forced into a game mode I dislike to take advantage of the rewards. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth and a not too favorable opinion of the people/company behind the decision to exclude Coop players from campaigns. Once I have done the campaigns and gotten my rewards, I look forward to ignoring PvP play until some other mission with rewards I want, appears on the horizon.

Episode 59: NoZoup and the Conqueror are the Controversy of the Week

 

Hi listeners, in this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast, No Zoup joins us again to talk about recent controversies. The crew gets into the various topics and discusses some recent testing with Graf Zeppelin and Deep Water Torpedoes, as well as speculation with Pan Asian Destroyers. Changes and talk about Smoke Meta, nerfs to ships like HMS Conqueror occupy our show.

Getting started with our show topics the cast touches on the latest test iteration of the KMS Graf Zeppelin where the discussion is on Deep Water Torpedoes (D.W.T.'s). D.W.T.'s give the KMS Graf Zeppelin a feeling similar to how the ship originally started testing. D.W.T.'s are also going to appear on the Pan Asian Destroyer line and the cast speculates about that line and capabilities. Radar is being added to Tiers 8 through 10 of that line in exchange for smoke generators, so the cast discuss what this might mean for competitive play. There is talk about smoke firing changes that were tested recently on the Public Test Server and how this might effect destroyer play or smoke dependent ships. Pan Asian Destroyers and minor nation naval lines are debated in context of the major navies as the cast members give their thoughts on the subject.

Moving into our controversial topic, thanks in large part to No Zoup's recent video about the HMS Conqueror, the cast debate the ship and the upcoming nerfs to it and Lion. The crew goes over the numbers, as well as discussing how battleship game play feel. This leads to the point on how the RN BB's are playing a role in the current meta and whether they feel like battleships or not. Statistics, ship's characteristics, and the definition on what constitutes an over powered ship is also debated as the cast compares and contrast to other over powered ships no longer available. Closing out this weeks episode the cast wraps up with some quick reminders:

  • Supremacy League week 3 is coming up this weekend with some matches streamed. Check the podcast description for a link to the streams
  • We've been given access to the revamped World of Warplanes game to test out, would our listeners like a short report on the state of the revamp?
  • Kelorn will be at the Let's battle tour in November, and so will No Zoup!
  • KamiSamurai and No Zoup will be at Twitch Con next week so be sure to check that out.
  • Halloween mode is coming for the second year in a row, we'll have more details next week!
  • Visit the Forums for details on how to win a Kii, Mutsu, or an Ishizuchi!

Thank you everyone for listening and supporting. We look forward to having you next podcast!

Episode 60: A Crazy Week of New Info with iEarlGrey

 

Hi listeners! In Episode 60 of the Warships Podcast, we sit down and have some afternoon tea with iEarlGrey. Who joins us after taking some time off from the game, but is now back and playing World of Warships again. Grey helps fill in for KamiSamurai who is at TwitchCon and joins us on the myriad of topics and news we have to cover.

Before the show starts our central topics and news. Kelorn and Grey go over the previous collaboration they did talking about Royal Navy Battleships and how they might be implemented. It was amazing to see how close the guys were to the actual line released. We start the first show topic with Clan Wars as the cast delves into the new competitive mode, the limitations, and what has been experienced so far. Following this the crew moves into the Quick Hits, bringing up recent balance changes, changes to smoke, possible changes to AA, the HIJMS Musashi and more. The Halloween Coop mode has returned and this year there is a wicked cool looking camo for owners of Imperator Nikolai.

After covering the news and recent changes, the show covers many of the new ships that are being tested and/or just released. The RM Guilio Cesare was just released for sale and the cast recapped a new last minute change that occurred before going live. HIJMS Musashi was discussed more in depth and the possibility of having a Yamato Class at Tier 9 is speculated. Graf Zeppelin has two more testing iterations as well as new ships USS Massachusetts, and HMAS Vampire are also now in testing. Huang He and USS Kidd have also returned for testing and USS Kidd now has a hull heal ability which the cast discusses. More exciting Supremacy League matches are coming up and once again thank you to everyone who listens and supports this Podcast.

See you next cast! Thank you!

Episode 61: Win a Piece of USS New Jersey

 

For Episode 61 of the Warships Podcast we have two guest joining us for the show. Fellow NA Community Contributor Vulgarr and also joining us, is one of our listeners and Patreon backer DJ Hallama who is providing a special prize for a competition: a piece of USS New Jersey's deck. Regretfully KamiSamurai could not make it for the show this week. Kelorn interviews both Vulgarr and DJ, and asks them about how they got into World of Warships and how they came to hear about this podcast. We also got their thoughts on what they like and what they feel this show could make improvements with.

Moving into show topics we start with the contest for a really cool piece of history. A small piece of deck wood from USS New Jersey provided courtesy of our guest DJ, who has picked out the contest rules for how one can win this amazing prize. In other announcements, the Warships Podcast is proud to partner with Wargaming to become apart of their streaming crew on Friday afternoons. The goal of these streams are to help players with understanding the game and how we try to find success when playing.

Continuing with our show topics; the cast talks about the new Halloween event and how this event has improved from last years. It is pretty amazing to see how far the PVE aspect of the game has come with Coop mode or scenarios in general, and the genesis can all be traced to the previous Halloween event. Sailing into our Quick Hits, the podcast crew brings up recent patch changes, discussion about testing USS Kidd and KMS Graf Zeppelin, as well as talking about Clan Battles and Supremacy League.

We want to thank everyone for their continued support and listening of this show. Thank you so very much and look out for the new contest involving USS New Jersey. See you next cast!

Episode 62: USN Cruiser Split!?

Hi listeners! In this weeks episode, we get our KamiSamurai back and a surprise announcement about the future USN Cruiser line split. Before getting into our show topics, the cast goes over the photo submissions and we choose a winner for the USS New Jersey contest. Thank you everyone for your entries and we hope to do another cool contest like this again.

Sailing into our main topic for this episode, we cover the new surprised not so secret USN Cruiser line split. While many of us knew this split was coming and knew that cruises like USS Baltimore and USS Cleveland would eventually be moved to Tier 8. The big surprises were USS Buffalo, USS Dallas, and USS Seattle (Go Hawks!!! :P). The cast speculates these lines going over the heavy cruisers first then talking about light cruisers. An interesting discussion is held and speculation abounds and the crew debates the changes and suggests what might be with these new exciting changes.

Finishing out the show, the cast covers the Quick Hits, mentioning: Saving the USS Texas, Lets Battle Tour at Lexington, Streaming for WG:NA starting next week with Kami, Alabama, Lo Yang, and Prinz Eugen on the PTS, and Wargaming Surveys. There is also a quick update on the State of Clan battles, and the podcast crew does Buy and No Buy for USS Kidd and Huang He. Quick mentions are also made about the testing of KMS Graf Zeppelin and more will come on this ship. Thank you everyone for listening and supporting the podcast! See you next show!
