  1. Seems to be a common theme. I turn the lights off and hide underneath a blanket in the corner of my room. But she still finds me.

  3. They changed the mission a bit. Now it is harder to win with 5 stars compared to PTS.
  4. Operation Dynamo ist jetzt spielbar. Schöne Änderung gegenüber der Testversion: Ihr bekommt auf jedes Schiff einen 19-Punkt-Kapitän. Einige der Skills scheinen vorgewählt zu sein, aber Ihr könnt dennoch meinen empfohlenen Captain's-build bauen. UND: Alle Kapitäns-XP, die Ihr bei Dynamo erspielt, werden in Elite Commander XP gewandelt => diese XP können also auf jeden Eurer Kapitäne angwandt werden. Toller Bonus von WG, finde ich. Denkt dran: Das gibt es nur zwei Wochen, dann sind die Schiffe wieder weg.
  5. While testing new Operation Dynamo on the PTS I saw a lot of players struggling with it in different ways: from wrong build of the ship to loosing sight of your objectives to wrong positioning on the map. Thus I made a guide to Operation Dynamo (introduced with version 0.6.8) on Youtube: Following secondary tasks were changed after I made the video: - Save 7'000 Soldiers (was 6'000) - Save at least 7 civil ships (was 6) A nice change compared to the PTS: You get a 19 point commander on the live server for each ship. Some of the skills seem pre-chosen for you. You can still commit my recommended builds, though. AND: All commander XP earned in the operation is converted to Elite Commander XP => XP can be transferred to any commander. Very nice additional incentive to play the operation. Two weeks only! Then the ships will be gone.

  7. What should CV players do, if they cannot attack a target? The same thing non-CV players do when they cannot attack a target because the enemy denies it: live with it. That was my whole point from the beginning. A CV is not able to attack just any target at any given point. Period. This is true for DDs, BBs, and cruisers as well. If the enemy's AA is too strong, you have to look for an easier target. Sorry, good CV players prove almost daily that the game mechanics do not put them at a major disadvantage. They deal massive damage and have a huge impact on the battle, even in high tiers, I don't think the game needs to be changed. I think the other CV players just need to improve their skills.
  8. I always have foilage switched off. For one reason, my computer runs smoother likes this, the other reason being what you describe above. It disturbs me at times. To me foilage is just eye candy, which I don't need. Well, candy is not good for your health .

    @Tuccy I tried it now in several battles. Actually you can see it already in my screenshot: The indicator points actually to the East of the ship, so it is pointing to the next square. If that is intentional - ok, good to know. If not, well it would be a bug. I know you are busy but would be nice if you could confirm if the RL pointer just generally shows the direction +/- 10° or so on purpose. It is not even pointing to the same square the vessel occupies.

    And that is the reason why I made a guide to this operation. It finishes on 3 stars, so it is not a show-off but you can see the mistakes which are typically made and how to avoid them. https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/83265-operation-dynamo-guide/

    a) Flakfeuer ist eher defensiver Natur. Du gehst mit der Anthony auf die Ostseite des Verbandes (aber nicht zu weit weg), um Schnellboote abzuschiessen. Falls dich ein Dive Bomber angreift, triggerst Du Dein Flakfeuer. Ausnahme: Wenn die Jäger gegeneinander kämpfen. Da solltest Du in Position sein und dann Flak triggern. b) Cyclone: Einzelschuss. Schiess Dich auf die Schnellboote mit einzelnen Schüssen ein. Dann klappt es auch mit dem Versenken. c) Einen "Minenräumer" hatte ich fast in jedem Spiel. Komisch. Das war aber auch einer der Hauptanreize, den Guide für diese Mission zu machen: https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/83267-operation-dynamo-guide/ Dönerturm.

    Wenn Du damit meinst, dass man Glück braucht, um Mitspieler zu erwischen, die wissen was zu tun ist: Ja. Das gilt für alle Gefechte, von Zufall, über Gewertet bis zu Operations. Ansosnten müssen da einfach ein paar Boote drunter stehen und Anthonys müssen ihr Def AA triggern.
  13. Following secondary tasks were changed in the current PTS version: - Save 7'000 Soldiers (was 6'000) - Save at least 7 civil ships (was 6) In case somebody knows how to put notes into an existing video on Youtube I'd be thankfu for any advice.
  14. Glad you recognize humour when it's right in front of you. Or maybe put it again in another perspective: There are also situations for other ship types where they cannot play the game as they would like it. Bloody planes are spotting my torps. Bloody radar uncloaks me. Bloody BB alpha damage melts my destroyer in seconds. And most of all: Bloody players using WASD hack to avoid my torps! This possibilty to move your ship even seems to be standard in ALL vessels. You don't even have to spec for it. Who do they think they are?
  15. Folgende Nebenaufgaben haben sich in der aktuellen PTS-Version geändert: - Rette 7'000 Soldaten (vorher 6'000) - Rette mindestens 7 Zivilschiffe (vorher 6) Falls jemand einen eleganten Weg kennt, wie man solche eine Info in ein bestehendes Youtube-Video elegant einbauen kann, wäre ich für den Tipp dankbar.
