    World of Warships & Linux (guide)

    Thanks for the reply. I should have been a little clearer, I want to use WGC as my updater not Steam and dont want to have to do that workaround everytime the game updates. It's just one of those things that bugs me, plus learning how to set it up myself helps me get a better understanding of how wine/linux works which is something I sorely need to do. @kodosThanks for the reply as well, I had it setup successfully using Lutris but in game had the red artifact issue. i believe this was down to an issue I had with my integrated graphics as the bumblebee drivers weren't correctly installed. Plus I installed everything I could with wine in the title..... and ended up having to reinstall the OS. Currently using Manjaro KDE.

    Do you mean by adding WGC to Steam and doing it that way? I've always been put off by installing it through Steam itself due to the awkward workaround getting a WG account on there. I'm quite happy to put the time in trying to understand what I need to do. Thanks for the reply.

    Do you have any sites you could point me to so I could learn how to do that? Sorry, still total newb to Linux.

    Did you ever manage to solve this? Currently have the exact same problem, installed using Lutris.

    Blyskawica 51k coal?.. (4800 doubloons before)

    I paid cash for my Blyska and I have no problem with it now being available for coal.

    Perfect, thank you very much. I must admit I didn't think it was going to be that easy!

    I'm fairly new to Linux, had WoWs running ok on Manjaro via Steam for a while, but ended up switching back to Win10 because I missed WGC too much. I'm thinking of moving back to Linux as my gaming laptop is the only one left running Windows. How easy is it to use the method you described? Do I need to use wine to run WGC, or can I run that through Proton as well? Would you be able to help me out with a quick run down of the steps required? As for the source, you can trust it but now it's a case of if you can trust me telling you its trustworthy!

    Why are DD's so poor these days.

    I can only speak for myself, I used to regard myself as an ok DD player, far from the best out there but not shockingly bad either. I stopped playing DDs purely because the gameplay changed so much, I adapted to the smoke changes, adapted to radar, adapted to all the changes but didn't want to adapt yet again to the CV rework. I lost interest and have rarely played them since, and now it's been so long Im fairly sure I'd be one of those that died immediately..

    Superintendent - Is it worth it?

    You need to take into account that with premium consumables the cooldown is shorter, so if you don't use premium consumables it wont be anywhere as beneficial as if you did. There has been numerous times I've run out of smoke/heals etc even with both. There is a very good reason why everyone recommends it and most of those that do, run premium consumables. As said above SE is pretty much a waste on anything that isn't a DD and vigilance can be ignored with good map awareness.

    Question to those who have a Colbert

    Having played both but owning neither, I would say Smolensk hands down. Personally I found the Colbert too situational and somewhat reliant on the right map. I also played several matches as an open water kiting boat, and couldn't get her to work, far too easy to cit. The Smolensk, in comparison was a beast, if I had the coal I would snap her up. But, I'm not a super unicum so take it as you will.

    Massive updates everytime!!!

    You would have the same issue updating it via Steam, by far the quickest way is using the game centre.

    Is World of Warships better or worse ....

    I'd say it's different, not better or worse. What I would love is a second server running World of Warships 'Classic' with RTS CVs and the other 3 classes. Keep subs and rework CVs on the main servers.
  14. I settled on this http://shipcomrade.com/captcalc/1000000000000010000001100010000119 Last 2 points into LS from memory, didn't find any real benefit from BFT or AFT, although I tried both. If you want the extra range you could drop CE for AFT but I found the shells lofty enough without it anyway and preferred not to get spotted. Personally I preferred DE over SE just to keep that fire chance. That said, it's such a situational ship and dependant on the right map, I'd take the Smolensk over Colbert any day.
