  1. Disclaimer, my highest tier ship is T7. I watched most of the replay and the following is intended to be constructive. Unless there is a glitch with the replay you spent most of the game fully zoomed in? and didn't seem to react to the minimap (a couple of dd's popped up which you totally ignored. When you had torps incoming you didn't zoom out and look around to see where they were so you could try and avoid them). You also appear to be trigger happy with consumables. imo your biggest failing is in situational awareness, you seem to have tunnel vision and target fixation which is very common at mid tiers. What I would recommend is watching your own replays after a battle and seeing what you missed. With practice, keeping an eye on the minimap becomes second nature (much like the rear view mirror when driving).
  2. If you wanna do that mission You gotta do it with some friends
  3. I thought I'd understood the new mechanics til i saw this vid. I was puzzled by what happened to me yesterday on 2 brothers in a BB when a friendly dd smoked me up but it's now clear.
  4. The way I figure it, you aren't always detonated from full hp, sometimes you'd have died anyway so I go for main armament.
  5. Call me old and cynical but I can't help thinking it's an attempt to clear the shelves of stock that no-one is buying.
  6. Bathtub battles were a lot of fun but the potential income for WG at T1 would be miniscule compared to T10. CW isn't so much about fun for players as it is about income generation for WG. Peer pressure is an extremely powerful marketing tool,
  7. You probably hit a module? I had the same thing where I damaged an aa mount. It triggers the shell but doesn't count as a hit.
  8. Maybe, but because it was so much better than where we came from we decided to stay.
  9. Straight from Hamsters to Capybaras? What about Guinea Pigs... oh wait, that's us isn't it. Still can't connect.
  10. If you join the test server next time it's open you can try them all. (you can also try the GK before throwing free xp at it) A common failure is lack of minimap awareness, most players don't pay enough attention to it. When you're torped out of nowhere, watch the replay paying particular attenton to the minimap, quite often you'll see something which you missed in the heat of battle that may have allowed you to predict and avoid it.
  11. A dev in the map creation section had a momentary lapse of reason and decided to meddle. There's a piper at the gates of dawn but he's obscured by clouds. Not content with that he wanted more so added a saucerful of secrets which also made the final cut.
  12. I think it's because of fov distortion, cos if you put them the other way around
  13. A couple of things you could try from the game launcher, There's a dropdown/popup on the play button to launch in safe mode. If that doesn't work then under settings/support in the launcher is "check and repair game integrity".
  14. There are many things I'd rather play than Emerald but Pensacola isn't one of them.
  15. Your first battles will be against bots (called co-op or pve), as you gain xp your rank will get higher and random battles will become available where you are playing against real people. (note: a lot of your early random battles may have bots to make up the numbers, you can tell which ones are bots as their name starts with a colon eg :captainname) You should receive the Diana after your first battle, if you haven't then the accounts haven't been linked correctly first try using the link your friend sent again it should confirm whether the invite has worked. If it still doesn't work then contact support, they can fix it if you haven't played too many battles.
