    Need help

    I don't use any mods, playing the game in vanilla version is challenging enough for me :). I will delete the preferences file since nothing else seems to work. Thread can be closed now, thanks to everyone who tried to help. EDIT: I deleted the preferences.xml file and the problem still persist. When I double click to fire my guns or even when I single fire them I get the Armament Locked on Bearing and have to press ctrl+x to unlock them again. The only thing I changed in settings before making a test run was to set my Crosshair to be dynamic. EDIT 2: Problem solved, it was on my end, my mouse settings were the real issue here.

    Hello everyone, Since the last update every time I press fire, my guns get locked onto the target and it says Armament Locked on Bearing. When this happens I have to manually press ctrl+x to get them unlocked, point at the target, fire and it gets locked again. This is quite annoying especially when I play my cruisers with high RoF and the game is literally unplayable this way. I checked my settings and there is nothing that would indicate that my Left mouse button is set to lock my guns on target. X button is set to lock the target not LMB. Is there something I have missed or is this a know bug ?

    Lets face it, CVs will "never" work!

    Good job ruining this game in one single update. WoWs was my escape game from the utter trash that has WoT become, now you have made me to hate those two games equally. The only solution is to stay away as far as it is possible from anything that bears the mark of WarGaming. If you guys at WG hate your player base so much, why even bother trying to make a game ? Games should be fun, but your making games frustrating. What is wrong with you people ?

    Good job WG, you have managed to ruin yet another game from your portfolio. This rework is the most frustrating thing you have ever added into this game. WoT is utter trash, and now WoWs is following it's footsteps. Go to hell WarGaming, I am done with you !

    Advice needed, tier X and some spicy soup

    I have not lasted to the end, because either my team melts like a snow in a Spring or is on a full retreat since the start. Edit: Also, I have survived only one battle earlier, because the enemy team reached 1000 points fairly quickly. Not a single DD went to spot or even contest any of the caps. We had no vision since everyone was behind islands waiting for someone else to do the spotting. Majority of the team went one side and did not even try to win one cap zone, me I was spawned at the far right with one cruiser and a DD, those two went straight the way to the far corner of the map leaving me on my own with no vision. As it goes the HE spam from cruiser went on and i could only try to break the distance and do some evasive manoeuvres. When I finally reconnected with what was left of my team, they were already at 800 points lead. I decided to sail away and only hoped for the match to end quickly. I do follow West Ham United so I am used to suffering, believe me I am, but this is a new level which I was not prepared for. What I have : Preventive Maintenance Adrenalin Rush Basic of Survivability Demo Expert Manual Fire Control for Secondaries 2 points in reserve waiting for another two so I can get Advance Firing Training and the last two points High Alert Tried a few battles today, nothing changes.

    Last 5 games in GK, let's see if I can make 5% WR in that ship, that would be epic.

    Advice needed, tier X and some spicy soup

    yeah, I am at tier IX Izumo and roughly 80k xp short of Yamato, it's an iconic ship and I always wanted to have it, but after this experience at tier X I don't think I will ever play it again. Currently at 17% WR, every game is a defeat, I will try a few more but I feel so down that I don't even hope to win any game ever in this ship.

    Advice needed, tier X and some spicy soup

    it might be just a feeling, but it seems like I do set more fires with my secondaries when Demo expert is active. Just wanted to show off little bit, my personal best in damage done EVER ! :) Ok, so I bought the tier X played 11 battles in it and now I have 18% WR in this ship. This is incredible, i never had so many defeats in any ship like that before.

    So, I will fit in well :) Yes, yes tank build now you are speaking my language. i always enjoyed playing as a tank in RPG games. A lot of armour, a lot of Hp and in your face. I am using flags and going for secondaries as the skills for my Captain with BoS active already and the last two points when I get there will be probably High Alert. What I have : Preventive Maintenance Adrenalin Rush Basic of Survivability Demo Expert Manual Fire Control for Secondaries 2 points in reserve waiting for another two so I can get Advance Firing Training and the last two points High Alert

    Is this assuming you are at 100% health ? Because if it is then what if you have taken 29% damage already :) ? Yes, yes, I have a heal, I know.

    Advice needed, tier X and some spicy soup

    I don't repair one fire unless I just got behind some big hard cover and I know I won't get spotted or shot at for at least a minute or two and then my repair is back online again. One fire does not kill you, 3 or 4 they will. I will probably buy the tier X, but don't see my self playing it much atm anyway. PS: Had one game just now with a Conq in it and I always choose flank where these things go, I feel like a well done steak right now and my disgust and hatred for these things just increased exponentially :). Oh boy if i had Euro for every time this thing sets me on fire I would have retired already., PS: Thank you for your input guys anyway.
  12. Dear WoWs community, I've come to you to take a sip from your well of knowledge. It has taken me many Years, but soon I will unlock my first tier X and yes it will be a BB. I don't like other classes much, DD's are too hard for me so I will always stick to tier V and VI only not to be a burden in high tiers, Cruisers are a bit squashy so I think I will pass on them too and since I was always a bit large then big fat BB is just perfect for me. I do enjoy tier VII and VIII, Gneisenau and Bismarck those are my thing, then I do a battle or two in a tier IX just to get a few xp and go back to lower tiers. So I have a few questions for you here: Is it worth it to go for a tier X ? How does one deal with Conquerors, I see them every once in a while and they are just too bloody difficult for me to handle, my fear is that I will see even more of them as a tier X and I don't want to spend money for therapist to help me deal with this problem. I accept there is a choice of ammunition, but when I do push to help support my DD's I burn a lot and I burn fast, I imagine I will burn even faster at tier X :). I can't really cover behind islands, can I, my job is to soak up damage, but how does one do that when you have 4 fires and waiting for your repair party to come back online ? There must be a lot of torps flying around at this tier, but I've learnt how to deal with them so them torps should not be such big problem, but yet again tier X is a lot bigger and turning circles are getting wider so I might not be as prepared as I originally thought that I am. The last question will refer to HE and BB again, since there is a lot of ships with high velocity shells and accurate guns is actually a BB valid choice for tier X ? Or mobility, fast reload and accuracy is way more helpful for your team then a big fat stupid BB ? I will await anxiously for your advice and act accordingly, in the mean time I will go and have some fun in my Gneisenau :).

    Nice one, I like it. It's for 90£, but that's ok, I think I will get this one. And to be honest, I don't think I've ever heard of Seasonic before. :) There is a first time for everything, right ? I rather spend more for a top quality then trying to go for a cheaper version to safe a few bucks. You both agreed on Seasonic being the best choice, so I will trust your opinions and go for the Seasonic 650W. I don't think I could live without a PC, what would I do, read some books ? I mean I do that, but on my PC in PDF.

    First things first, thank you everyone for pitching in with ideas how to go around my problem. Secondly, I have no more black screens the problem is solved now. (Looks like it anyway, we'll see after some hard game session). And now what I did to solve the problem. I got rid of GeForce Experience Deleted preferences.xml ( this one was the golden thing which probably made it work, too bad I did not make a screenshot of my settings before that :) ) Did the check integrity again Slightly decreased the graphical settings as Estaca_de_Bares suggested Ran 6 battles in a training room with a lot of ships and no hiccups at all The game runs on a full screen like a charm again, I did not go for clean install of GPU drivers, because I did that two days ago so not really needed it I guess. Oh I tried to find drivers for my Samsung 24-inch Curved monitor and the closest thing was a 32 inch driver with a slightly different letters, anyway bad bad idea. For a while I thought my PC is going to explode when I tried to run the game and it went all black, not only my screen, but the whole damn PC with my confidence with it. Oh well, Generic PnP will do, it worked so far so don't fix something which is not broken. This PSU is for 55£ and it has quite a good reviews, if this is cheap then what would you recommend ? I am not going to spend more then 80£ for PSU, not like I need a new one, but no one knows what the future holds so quickly looking at amazon I found this one I quite like. Corsair TX-M Series 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold Certified PSU (UK) Hybrid Modular Power Supply Unit Good or bad ? Anyway, thanks again everyone and good luck.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I am off to work so I will try them when I get home.
