Episode 38: Business6 gets introspective with the Podcast crew

 

With a relatively light news week in World of Warships, the podcast crew and special guest Business6 talk about some deeper topics. We explore the benefits of taking breaks from Warships and why we come back. Thoughtful discussion about the effect of giving out a T8 Bismarck in the upcoming campaign results in some interesting conclusions. The upcoming ranked season is explored with the possibility of it being Tier 6. Finally, we discuss the importance of late game DD play and how to survive in a DD.

Episode 39: New Kidd on the Block: USS Kidd and DeGrasse First Impressions (WiP)

 

Hi listeners! In this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast we discuss an assortment of new premium ships coming to the game in the near future. Breaking down ships that we are currently testing and reviewing, as well as a bit of speculation on three ships that will hopefully make there appearance soon in game.

Getting into our show discussion we start off with USS Kidd, a Fletcher class Destroyer that has been slotted at Tier 8 instead of 9. The reasoning of this is that it has one less torpedo rack, trading torpedoes for improved anti aircraft capabilities. We discuss at length our current experiences with the ship and give our thoughts on how it could be improved as well as its current standing in the random meta and possibilities for competitive play. The next ship we are testing is the French Cruiser DeGrasse. A solid cruiser that each cast member believes is a solid premium that we feel, is ready to ship to the public right now. We talk about its strengths and weaknesses and talk about French Cruiser play in general.

Moving on from the current premium ships that we are testing, the cast gets into the big and highly anticipated ships, and by big ships, we really mean ENTERPRISE! We talk about the Big E and carrier game play, matchmaking, and how even non CV players will be getting this ship just based on the fact that its the Enterprise. The cast also talks about Admiral Markarov which is the Nurnberg but as it was when sold to the Russians and HMS Gallant is a Royal Navy Destroyer. Which is a ship featured in an upcoming movie about the massive evacuation at Dunkirk. We discuss these ships and move onto our final topic for the show.

The Sink the Bismarck campaign discussion rounds out the podcast with the sale of HMS Hood which is now available via a staggered bundle system. Much like how Graf Spee was handled, players who were familiar with that will understand this system and campaign. We talk about the merits of the sale and remind players that you have 19 days to complete this run. The 100 dollar bundle is brought up and debated as we go over the pluses and minuses for making such a purchase, and break down what the bundle contains.

Episode 40: Win an HMS HOOD with Trevzor from WG NA!

 

Hi Listeners! Swinging by to celebrate our 40th podcast show, we have Trevzor from WGNA. Kelorn opens the show with some questions for for Trevzor regarding the new 6.6 patch coming up and some cool things to expect from this patch. Including a new and improved Ultra Sound Settings option that I'm sure will test many of our listeners killer sound systems. Trevzor talks about the new PVE modes coming to the game and the excitement for a new mode in World of Warships. Kelorn brings up the change to allow any torpedoes being launched to continue and persist in deployment of the spread even if the players ship has been destroyed during the process. The cast discuss the potential game play changes that may occur as a result of this.

The show continues to discuss the new patch with on going changes to the KMS Hindenburg Heavy Cruiser. This cruiser will receive buffs to its armor against high explosives and to its own high explosives ordnance. A discussion on the Hindenburg's play style is brought up as well as high tier cruiser game play with regards to cruisers like VMF Moskva and Henri IV. HIJMS Yugumo is getting a buff to its torpedoes and the cast discusses the changes that should help the quality of life for that destroyer.

The last section of our patch discussion, we talk about the changes to the USS Iowa, USS Missouri, and USS Montana's citadel location. These are quality of life changes that should help with the protection of these ships and the cast discusses high tier USN BB game play. How it will and/or maybe not be effected, as well as the overall issues of transitioning from low tier USN Battleships to the higher tier.

The cast rounds the show out with talk of the USS Enterprise and what this is going to mean for the World of Warships as a game and as a community. The excitement for this ship is incredible and Trevzor shares a funny story about fellow WGNA employee Pigeon of War. We also talk about the charity work for Project Valor that Wargaming is aiding in, as well as discussion about this years set of Lets Battle Tours. If you have never been to a Lets Battle Tour, you should really consider going because they are absolutely amazing. Thank you all for listening, see you next time!Hi Listeners!

All right just listened. My own thoughts.

 

Battleships... yea ya know, there aren't any real bad BB's at tier 6.  Even the New Mex... They all drive differently.  They all have their strengths and weaknesses.  I'll be driving a Fuso in the BB slot myself.  With over 1400 fight in her I pretty much know everything she can do and can't do.  And how to deal with all the other BB's of the tier with her!

 

Cruisers:  Oh man.  Variety.. lots and lots of variety! All of the cruiser are viable. Every last one of them.  Just depends on the driver!

 

DD's.. Yep, I mostly agree.  Anshan and Farragut for sure, but the other DD's all have their place   Fubuki over Hastsu on the IJN line though.  Gnevy is a very strong ship even if her torp's are there for those condition brown moments. Gaede is also not entirely lacking.

 

CV's.  Yep, there will be Indi's..it's going to go to whom ever uses their CV and air group best... and doesn't blunder into the AA of the few ships with good AA at this tier.  All things being equal though the IJN has the edge here.

 

Smoke meta.. there will be smoke.  There will be so much smoke that EPA impact reports may need to be filed.  Not to mention a fairly substantial respiratory risk!  No radar to be seen.  If they wont be flushed with torps spread then you'll have to go in after them, and you'll need ships with hydro when you try to make sure your not charging an empty lure and into a torp trap!  The first team to catch the other in a bad mistake or bad luck is likely to be the winner.  Aggressive mobile teams that refuse to play turtle up in smoke hide can generate their own advantage by going after caps and superior position in such a way as to force to turtle tactic team to respond and break their own smoke game.  It's really going to depend on the players.  

 

I firmly believe tier 6 ranked season is possibly the best choice.  The availability to newer players to dive in with their wild and crazy moves (Jingles law: if it's stupid but it worked, it's not stupid... until next time. .. *smiles cheerily!*). and often times amazing luck, and the number of hoary old scary good expert players.  (yes, the seal clubbers will be out in force, and in their favorite club of choice! Like me with my over 1,400 fights in a Fuso.  I know my Fuso.  My Fuso knows me.).   The smaller HP pools on the ships though is going to make a significant difference in how fights develop.   The smaller team size is not going to permit passive players to even begin to do well.  It will be interesting.  And some players are just gonna hate it, and that's just to bad.  I suspect for the greater majority of players it'll be great fun!

 

Bring it!

 

Warlord Sends

 

P.S. Ranked Season absolutely essential commander skill is going to be Adrenalin Rush. BB's especially.  Your going to take damage, so having that damage buff your rate of fire for ALL WEAPONS..(that's main and secondary,AA and torpedo rate of fire, and aircraft rearming time!) may make the difference of your shots being the deciding damage for a match

Warlord,

 

You make some great points and I agree with virtually everything you said.

 

I would quibble on a couple of points, however.

 

First, while I agree that newer players will come out in droves for a Tier 6 ranked season, I still think that the higher ranks (in particular Rank 5-2) will be restricted to much more competitive play. We saw it in several seasons where the lower ranks (23-15) were tier 6 and the games were wild and much more like random matches, but then it switched to Tier 7 or Tier 8 and things got more competitive. I would expect to see the same thing again if we see a mono-tier 6 Ranked season.

 

Second, there's passive play and then there's passive play. Sitting in the back sniping and never pushing up is bad form, bad for your team, and generally reprehensible if you do it the entire game. But rushing in like a lunatic in the early team is just as bad. Playing passively in the early game, then pushing into a weak area is how you win games in competitive matches. It isn't that I don't agree with your sentiment, but I do think it needs definition.

 

Cheers and thanks for listening! Watch for a QnA thread here and on reddit if you want to ask a question on the podcast!

Episode 42: Enterprise, High School Fleet, and ... Zoup?!?

Hi Listeners! For Episode 42 of the Warships Podcast we have NoZoup returning for his 3rd stint on the show to talk about the many new surprises that has recently hit the World of Warships. Kelorn checks up on fellow Community Contributor Zoup and how he has been doing recently with his YouTube channel. Congratulations on 10k subscriptions Zoup, as that is an incredible milestone! The cast discusses one of his recent videos, a satire on the destroyer class in the game. Which is brilliant, well done, and put together. Kelorn also takes a moment to make a quick comment about the show host's formation of a new Clan/Fleet, (-I-) Impact. Headed up by KamiSamurai himself. We chose to leave OPG (OverPowereredGaming) on amicable terms, to set out on a new course for ourselves and our fleet.

We get into the main body of show topics with the news and testing of several new ship. As of the day of this shows recording. All four of the show's members and guest, as well as other NA Community Contributors, have the opportunity to now test USS Enterprise, HMS Gallant, HSF Graf Spee, and HSF Harekaze. We talk about each of these ships going over what our initial impressions are for the new ships. Please keep in mind that any stats, abilities, and issues with these ships are subject to change as they are in testing and are considered a work in progress.

We start with the Enterprise and break down the play style and our thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses so far. Discussing potential for Ranked and Competitive play and overall viability that this ship brings. We do the same for Gallant focusing on what the ships play style is and how it is possibly a meta changer. The implications for Ranked play could be massive and is this possibly a sign of things to come with the future Royal Navy Destroyer line???

Along the lines of destroyers we talk about the introduction of two new ships coming to the game. The collaboration with the High School Fleet anime show has brought about two of the shows star ships. HSF Harekaze and HSF Graf Spee. The Graf Spee is mostly a mirror of the existing in game counterpart however Harekaze is unique Tier 8 fictional Kagero class, in that she has the ability to upgrade her hull and guns in game similarly as to how she did in several episode of the anime show. This gives players many options and the cast discusses this fun ship and how great of a hybrid ship she can be. Kelorn, Kami, and Zoup speculate on how these ships might be obtained and a very interesting idea is brought up on how they could be obtained that we really hope Wargaming is working on and/or considering close as these are fantastic ideas.

We close out the podcast with a discussion on the newly release/revealed images and line up of Royal Navy Battleships. The cast talks about the ships seen so far. HMS Conqueror the Tier 10, HMS Lion Tier 9, HMS King George the 5th and HMS Nelson which tiers are still ambiguous at the moment of this podcast. Going over some of the information known to us we talk about gun battery potential, speed, armor, and other points of interest to these ships, and how they might fare to their contemporaries.

Thank you all for listening and supporting us! See you next cast!!!

Episode 44: TX141 tells us how and why he Ranked out in a Pensacola in Season 6

For this weeks episode of the podcast we have a post Ranked Season 6 interview with TX141TX. Who did an amazing YouTube video of himself grinding out the entire Ranked Season in none other then the USS Pensacola. A ship which many consider is horrible and is vastly unpopular. The video showcases highlights from each match where he gained a Rank Star, parring it up with an awesome set of music along the way. Check out his video if you have not already, as it is a great inspirational and well crafted YouTube piece in of itself.

 

After the interview we discuss the merits and challenge our line of thinking with ships that we often dismiss and overlook. We bring up some examples form each caster as the crew goes through what strengths that ship might be able to bring to this coming Ranked Season, and from that. The cast tries to speculate and formulate potential scenarios to maximize those strengths like TX141 did.

 

Thank you everyone for listening!!! Stay tuned in with your best sound system as we have more guest torpedo beating their way to the show...

 

Check out TX141 on Twitter and his Pensacola Ranked video on Youtube!

Just a bit confused as I listen to podcast. Pensacola is tier 7, did your guest play the ship last season or on the test server? Isn't this season of ranked going to be tier 6? Is it going to be a split season tier 6 then tier 7? I mean come on, talking about the Pensacola one minute then Dunkirk and Bayern the next in regards to ranked. Such a confused mess of a podcast.

Such a confused mess of a podcast.

 

They were talking about it in terms of it being a dog of a ship last season (which was T7) and that despite that, someone ranked out in it. This was making the larger point that it's the captain that matters more than the ship and that in the right hands, any ship can do well. 

 

Not that hard to follow and it's a decent podcast but may be above your level.

However, "Vanessa's" voice.... all I can think about is warning my drunk friends. Unnerving to say the least.

LOL a stat shame!! How very petty of you. I assure you that it is hardly "above me", my comprehension is just fine. Unfortunately yours seems lacking. I asked if the guest played tier 7 on the test server or last season, that was not addressed or if it was, I missed it, hence the question. But thanks for the attempt at an answer, as pitiful as it was.  Oops almost forgot, a swipe at Vanessa, you are a real gem.

If it wasn't above you, you would have understood the context. None of the guests played the penny in ranked; they were speaking of someone else. And you wouldn't call it a "mess of a podcast" if you understood it. 

 

My criticism is a matter of taste, not content/substance.

Umm horse feces. The guest, TX141, played it in ranked. Was the entire point of his appearance on the show..... The hosts did not play it and I never said they did. I think you overestimate your comprehension ability. The "someone else" they were discussing was the guest. I called it a mess because it was a disjointed conversation. I stick with my original assertion that you are petty and none to bright. The fact you have no clue what the distinction is betwixt guest and host pretty much proves it.

Taylor,

 

I'm sorry that the episode was confusing. I had conducted this interview several months ago, but due to other guest and topics, never had the time to include it on an episode. It seemed appropriate to include it this week as a look back to the last ranked season and good information for people who might only be able to play a ship in the upcoming ranked season that we might consider to be less than ideal. We were impressed by TX141's play, his video editing, and his tenacity in undertaking the last ranked season in the Pensacola. We hope that players will keep that in mind as they go into this new ranked season and play the ships they are best at/most comfortable in!

Episode 45: Eurobeat tells us how to Torpedo beat and the Final Version of USS Enterprise is ready!

Greetings listeners! In this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast, we crank up our epic sounds systems to full, as we jam to the likes of Yuro'Beat! Famous YouTuber and comedic World of Warships entertainer. Kelorn interviews Yuro beginning with how he got his start into creating his totally awesome YouTube content, and his love for the anime series Initial D. The cast continues the interview talking about cars, music, and how Yuro has almost single handedly been reviving the Eurobeat music genre. We bring up some differences between the SEA and NA servers and the communications barriers that exist, as well as talking about how communications effect things like Ranked game play. The cast also inquires about the importance of content like that of ARP and High School Fleet, and what that means to the SEA region for its player base.

While getting into the heart of our show topics we quickly ask Yuro for his picks for the upcoming Ranked Season. He breaks down what he might use and talks about his outlook of this next season and Ranked in general. We discuss the HIJMS Kaga and USS Enterprise (CV6), as the new carriers on the block, the game play that these carriers bring, and impact they have been having on the game. The cast also gets into all the changes that Enterprise has received and what this ship is going to look like in its final form.

Continuing on the topic of Enterprise, the cast brings up the prospects of competitive play in places like Supremacy League. How might she fare and will teams use this ship? Yuro speculates on KMS Graf Zeppelin another carrier that will most likely join the Tier 8 line up Soon™, as well as speculation on the High School Fleet Event and when that might hit the NA servers. The cast talks about HSF Harekaze. A Tier 8 destroyer which is an incredibly fun ship play and is one that brings a great set of options to Tier 8 destroyer gameplay.

We round out the show talking about changes to this upcoming Ranked Season. Changes have been made in the rewards per rank, and the cast discusses the likes and dislikes of the system. Yuro proposes an awesome idea to change up the rewards a bit and we agree that the developers should take note. :smile: Thank you everyone for listening and see you next time!

Check out Yuro's amazing additions to Warships lore on Youtube!

Nice something to listen to while playing, I enjoy when Business 6 is on. I have nothing but respect for that guy. He is nice to the playerbase and doesnt put everyone down and actually has a way to make people learn how to become better at the game and most importantly he knows how to make it fun in a match.  Thanks to streamers who dont make others feel like crap! :)

Episode 48: Torpillow Madness at Wargaming America

PSA: Our apologies in advance for the audio quality this week, we were all in one room!

Hi Listeners! In our anniversary episode of the Warships Podcast KamiSamurai and Kelorn got the opportunity to travel to Wargaming Headquarters North America for a special visit to see what awesome things Wargaming has been doing with World of Warships. (Regretfully Vanessaira just recently had surgery to remove her gallbladder and could attend :/ but joined in online, Sorry) The crew got to do some amazing things including visiting the USS Hornet while there in San Francisco. Trevzor joins the cast for this episode and the appearance of the infamous TorPillow was once again, a great topic of discussion.

Getting into show topics, Kelorn asks Trevzor about some of the new content we have been seeing including Operations Dynamo. Trevzor talks about the excitement behind it as well as the thirst for new content from a community that is always looking for more from Wargaming. Kelorn then asks Trevzor about the Super Testing program and what that entails per se. Trevzor breaks down what Super Testers do and how they impact and help shape Wargaming products. KamiSamurai also took the opportunity to talk about his experience while being a Super Tester and recall some of the good and bad times from program. While moving to a similar subject Trevzor then talks about Community Contributors and contrast the differences between the two programs. Hopefully clearing up some questions that many people often have when comparing the two groups.

Continuing with show topics, Trevzor is asked about this recent trip to the Let's Battle Tour that was held up in Minnesota. Trevzor talks about challenges of holding an event like this, but wanted to stress how much he really enjoyed it. Kelorn is excited for he will be attending the next event being held at the USS Lexington down at Corpus Christi, TX. If you are able to attend a Let's Battle Tour event, please do.

Wrapping up this episode, the cast host a questions and answers session for Trevzor that our listeners submitted. We want to thank everyone for listening and supporting the game, community, and the show for the last year. Here is to looking forward to many more anniversaries to come!
