    Discord/World of Warships crash?

    Aye I noticed :) Also noticed all the rage happening on the discord WoWS servers now they've come back up.

    Discord/World of Warships crash?

    Judging by the load of people saying they've been kicked out of battle, cant log in or cant join a battle. I'll assume for now WG's servers have kicked up again.

    Discord/World of Warships crash?

    Hello. So I was unready in a division with 2 friends when discord crashed and there was a connection loss for all 3 of us to the discord servers. So we joined up in steam voice and then noticed 2 of us couldn't ready or unready and none of us could leave the division. Restarted the game, I was no-longer in a division but 2 of my ships were ready in a division and I could not join in a battle. Even after restarting my game multiple times I remain unable to join battles or create a division. Everything else seems to work so, any suggestions? As a web developer I am familiar with coding and technical faults which is why I find it highly unlike that a discord mishap could cause a unrelated program from experiencing the same problem at the same time for 3 different individuals. No error logs to go by. Screenshot attached, noticed 2 ships ready in a division with a division message. But no division chat window or division status next to the battle button. Let me know if people have encountered this and know a fix or have any theories :)

    [Nerf Bat] Yueyang being slaughtered

    I think its good to mention that obviously not all players play the same, certain people will have a particular playstyle which means after you are succesfully playing a difficult ship there is a feeling of success and it is rewarding and I think its fair to say the YueYang has an easier and more enjoyable playstyle than some other destroyers, including the Gearing which in my opinion is not enjoyable or the Z52 that I feel is lacking a bit behind compared to other destroyers of its tier. It is my opinion that instead of heavily nerfing a ship's guns, when that ship can ONLY rely on those guns to deal with other destroyers, is a mistake and instead other destroyers should be adjusted to make their playstyle difficult but more rewarding when played right. I also feel the same with battleships and cruisers, both these classes rely very heavily on RNG and shell dispersion to increase the player's life expectancy in a game. Which in theory is a good thing, but the problem it brings is it does not encourage new, or to be honest even old players, from the learning basic game mechanics. But that is a topic for another thread.

    Old IJN dds are fine?

    I mean YueYang plays essentially the same way as Gearing to be honest and is arguably a better gunboat considering it sits much lower in the water. The downside is, as you said, you can't torp destroyers. Personally, I'd rather play my YueYang than my Gearing.

    Old IJN dds are fine?

    IJN DDs are fine as they are really, only complain I could say is the shima has lost its status as a destroyer... its by far just a torpboat with a fancy amount of torpedoes. It's supposed to have strong torpedoes and they are strong, but only when they hit which isn't exactly very often due to the ridiculous detection range. There are destroyers out there that in my opinion make a better torpedo boat than the shima... most notably the YueYang in my opinion is superior to the Shima in every aspect apart from concealment which is a very weak argument considering how much radar is in the game at high tiers now... IMO IJN DDs at tier 6 and above are absolutely fine, apart from shimakaze as I have said....

    FPS Drops in last few days

    Was playing a bit of halloween mode last night and it was fine, then I switched to random later on and noticed my fps dropped from about 120-140fps to 60-70 or so. Not great really...

    FPS Drops in last few days

    Not the first time something like this has happened, but things do... Pretty obvious it is a game fault when a reasonably large number of people are having the same issue on different systems at the same time with no fixes. Then again I recall relatively bad support with ryzen systems running nvidia GPUs, though I would have believe those problems gone by now.

    Karma and enemy spite reporting

    Karma is a useless system, it's just there to grind some salt I guess. I stopped giving a damn after politely telling a Des Moines on our team that there were only 30 seconds left on the clock and he just needed to survive, he pushed around an island into the enemy montana 5km away and almost lost us the game. Despite coming second on the board with over 2.4k base XP I was reported 3 times by him and his division mates, all 3 in IDDQD. Point is simple, no matter how much you do in a game, or how much you try to be polite and helpful to your team there is always going to be someone ready to blame or spray salt on somebody else... it is simply a pointless system, I strongly doubt WG have any employees looking at reports using the karma system... only thing its good for is temporarily muting people who are rude in chat, that is it.

    Daring crap

    You might want to consider, instead of spending money FreeXPing past lines you dont know how to play. Go back to tier 1 and learn the game mechanics, or go look at informational videos on youtube or even the world of warships tutorials.... if you don't then good bye.

    Lets talk Republique... The French Tier X BB

    The Republique as a ship is fine as it is, however I will admit I was disappointed when I saw it as the tier 10 for the french line. Honestly I'm not sure why WarGaming chose to go with an almost completely fictional design at tier 10, I was unable to find any information regarding a similar 2x4 french battleship design other than the Gascogne. They certainly had a couple choices, there was a planned version of the Alsace with 406mm 16inch guns which would make a better premium at Tier 9 than the Jean Bart. There is also the Super-Alsace and Champagne projects that they probably could have managed to fit at tier 10. As far as I am aware the Super-Alsace was obviously based on the Alsace except with the addition of a fourth turret at the rear with the proposed 406mm guns, adding an extra 4 guns. Meanwhile the Champagne was a 4x3 design mounting the 450mm guns developed by the french. Although I've had a very hard time trying to get information on those two projects it does actually seem like the french did research these. Well anyway this is basically just me rambling on, I'm still relatively happy with the Republique, but I don't understand why instead of buffing a Richlieu and Alsace to tier 9 and 10 with a silly gimmick, why did they not just give us an Alsace with 16" guns and a relatively unique and interesting T10 battleship? WarGaming seems to be very fond of copy-pasting models already in the game instead of actually adding genuinely unique and interesting ships into the game. Heck I mean the Mutsu, Ashitaka, Marblehead, Marblehead Lima, Diana, Diana Lima, Aurora, Admiral Makarov, Nueve de Julio... all these ships are basically copies of other ships in the game. I might as well add the Charlestone and West Virginia 41 in the list. Basically, I don't think the problem lies with the ships, I think it has more to do with the way WarGaming is thinking really... lately it does seem quite unimaginative when it comes to adding ships into the game. Well anyway if you managed to read all this then thank you :)

    difference in XP

    This is how people ruin the game for themselves and others... don't FreeXP to tier 8 when you are clearly new to the game. Learn how to play in the low and mid tiers first otherwise you'll have spent your own money to buy your way into high tiers just to lose a lot and get told off about it in chat. It is not worth spending any money for FreeXP, if you really want to get better at the game and make progress a little faster then use your money to buy premium days and premium camo. At least you'll have the benefit of having more time to learn and yet progressing a little faster.
