  1. I'm old and a day and night player and this sounds a terrible idea, you're basically taking away the RTS part of the game and producing a naval worldofwarplanes game for the cerebrally challenged. If you wanted the CVS back in the game you shouldn't have buffed everything against them. How do you think this meta will go now? As my take is that with only one squadron to control CVS will not even attempt to support or spot for fleet anymore but just go hunting and farming their own XP and given they can't sail and fly the most sensible will just hide behind a rock somewhere or go to the edge of the map and sit there. Sounds like WOWS is trying to go WarThunder route but if I wanted WT then I'd play WT(but good luck to them as I get that they need to keep innovating). I really hope Skull&Bones turns out to be a good sail version of WOWS as that is where I'll be off to with my cash if this goes the way I think it will.(now where are those markets for accounts? :) )

    Ranked Battles Season 9 - Discussion Thread

    Come on WG bite the bullet and make ranked fun again. Keep the starting higher in the ranks dependent on your last season but no irrevocable ranks and no best loser star. Increase the ship tier requirement as you go up the ranks with T10 for the last ranks or if you like a fun tier for the last rank but stop this pissing about with the format as it's made ranked a truly excruciating bore and not even a grind, its like random on extra stupid this season. I can count the amount of close games at R10 and R9 on one hand with the majority being based upon who has the most potatos that can get wiped out with 13 mins to go, its a joke. So what if we get stomped for a while whilst the big boys come through at least everyone will find their true level and maybe learn a bit on the way. Stop kowtowing to the potatoes and noobs.

    Ranked Season

    Well I'm done. Can't cope with another game where 2/3 of team dead with 13 mins to go. Come on WG bite the bullet and make ranked fun again. No irrevocable ranks and no best loser star. Start at T7 or even T6 if you like and increase tiers up to 10 for last ranks. So what if we get stomped for a while whilst the big boys come through at least everyone will find their true level and maybe learn a bit on the way. Stop kowtowing to the potatoes and noobs. This pissing about with the format has made ranked a bore and not even a grind.

    It is amazing isn't it! Every game is just whether I'm in the bigger potato group or not. If I am, whole team pretty much dead with 8-10 mins to go.

    I think I agree with the above even tho' getting the star has sometimes saved me from having an apoplexy at the rest of the team. :) I remember when the stars came in, loads of zao's sitting at the back and just racking up the points. :( All in all I think it would be best without the star or any irrevocable ranks as overall I think things would level out.

    Ranked Season

    Sorry but just have to vent!! :) Wtf! wtf!! wtf!!! In the last day have just gone from 9 3 star to 10 no star!! Complete and utter noobs, potatoes and just plain incompetents plus the usual fail star hunter. Take last game, playing Shima, using rdf to identify where yeyung is likely to come from, smoke to hindys as asked(wasted in hindsight) then risk going close to spot. Do so and wait for hell to rain down on it, do I see any fire coming at it? No I f*****g don't but what I do see is him and his team wiping 90% of my health off. Wtf! wtf!! wtf!!. People are often complaining about the bbs dominating random at T10 but if this is what it would be like if the cruisers were buffed then you can keep it how it is thanks. Thanks for ignoring this :) p.s. It's quite clear that the only time to play ranked is late at night where the players at least have half a brain and the games are close and more fun. During the day it is a joke and nearly every game is just one side getting destroyed in the first 8 mins through plain stupidity. I can count the amount of close games in a session on one hand.

    Now that makes some sense if it was possible to implement but two in a row unrealistic as its easy to lose two in a row with some of the potatoes I've been playing with, three seems more realistic.

    Ranked Season

    Ranked - where you go to lose all your karma points, silver and flags to angry noobs. Personally, this season is the most annoying I have played so far. I'm an average player, just about 51% random WR(in my defence no DIV or CVS and mainly BB play :) ) and no way am I going to make R8 this time as the sheer incompetence of many of the players at R10 is breath-taking and I'm not sure I can be bothered to grind through it. I'd not have believed it unless I'd seen it with my own eyes. It's like the weekend but magnified X10. :) WG - you should never have made R10 irrevocable its caused idiots to grind to where they have no idea how to play. p.s. Please, please, please get rid of the star system it was a mighty mistake with respect to encouraging teamplay.
  9. Brilliant! Thank you for your work. Can't afford much but will make a small donation even tho' I hate PayPal. :)
  10. My logs attached. Hope they help and thanks for your time. Aslains_WoWs_Logs.zip
  11. Pardon my ignorance. What logs and how do I generate them?
  12. Ship direction and greened detection zone both working?
  13. Minimap not working. Any idea if it might be updated?
  14. Me too. No ship directions nor green-zoned detection area. p.s. Thanks for the modpack anyhow.
