  1. Yes was happening to me as well. Not as of late though. It was happening 2-3 days ago. Maybe it is fixed now. I noticed it mostly was happening if i had items to queue up on the right side of the screen WHILE opening the news. So if i would wait first so that all new flags/coal/credits to queue up first and THEN open the news it wouldn't happen, but when i was doing it AT THE SAME TIME while also had stuff appearing at the right side it would freeze. But i think it's fixed now, right?

    Strange bug after logging

    I fixed it conventionaly. I didn't use the "repair" option. Yesterday evening i "re-watched" the final tabs that were marked as "unseen". Today when i logged everything was fine.

    I let it be. Detective Monk within me wanted to go and "re-see" all the red tabs to make the marker disappear but i just let it be. Well i tapped only a few of them (not the collections) And today all was fine apart the collections tab that i hadn't "done" yesterday. And today i did that too. Now next time i log i ll see if it happens again. If it does i may do the repair thing.

    Wrong balance

    Just hide the stats and try to enjoy the game and play as best as you can. They drove us nuts with that stupid "stats" system. All are nuts about it. The bad feel bad when lose but also the goods with the high stats feel so frustrated when lose. Cause their better stats are harder to maintain. So everybody is very frustrated constantly. Just hide your stats and forget about them.And try to enjoy the game for what it is. I know that some people feel that "but the good stats will make me more respected" Well at the end of the day noone cares. Everybody keeps watching HIS stats. The stats are only good to get into some good clan and do competitive. But lets suppose you could "hack" your stats and make them at 70%. What would happen would be that you would be admited in a high end clan but eventually they d realise you are not as good in the Clan Battles as your stats suggest and you would be removed from the team. And possibly also the clan. So no real profit there. This whole thing is a vanity thing. At the end of the day it doesn't worth the frustration. Hide your stats and play as well as you can. Try to think it like this. "I am not as good as my previous games but i am as good as my NEXT game, good or bad. When people see my hidden stats probably think. "Oh that guy must be terrible" But that way they don't focus me as much, and if i fail they will probably not open chat with my to harass me. I am safe of all that mistreatment. And sometimes i top the team scoreboard. I bet it is a big surprose then. "oh look the hidden stats player got first place" Anyway what matters for me is that at the end of the day noone to say "Grumpy_Shark droped the ball" Maybe i havebad stats but i ll be giving you all hell out there. Or try to. Maybe get the same mentality yourself and you see you will be enjoying the game more. PS but i have seen that in this game on some days the game may keep giving you bad teams or just not wanting you to win with certain ships or in certain tiers. Try other ships other tiers that day to see if you can work around it. And if it persists and you do like 0/5 log off. Try maybe again in a few hours or the next day. Cause after 5 defeats in a row it adds up to your frustration and you will play with anger and tend to mistake even more. One day i remember i had like 10 losses in a row then i won 2 times and then again 15 losses in a row. So it happens. You just need to know when to stop if a day isn't favoring you. I ll post a link to show something. Even the best of the best had bad days. Watch this Flambass video to see for yourselves ha was coming first on his team and kept losing and losing that day!

    Strange bug after logging

    No. But all was working fine. Only yesterday... i had logged in the morning. All fine. When i relogged at noon it happened. It changed my normal port (Fjord) to Azur lane room. So i was found there and all the tabs in game had that "new" red reminder as if i had never opened them And all the collections and sob-collections had to be "seen" again in order to make it go. And basicaly all tabs. I did that. (no idea how to make it disappear from the "Tech Tree" but anyway) Then i logged off. But on the afternoon that i logged back in i had again the same issue. The port was set to Azur Lane room once again, and again all my tabs were set to unseen once more. Very strange. And right now i logged back in. This time the port was Fjords at least but istill have all the tabs with the "new" red indicator... So will "repair" fix that? I just started happening yesterday the whole thing. It's very odd.

    Strange bug after logging

    Something has bugged the game , takes ages to log in and it always puts me in that stupid Azur Lane desk despite the fact i had saved the Fjord port. Also it has all my tabs set to "new" as if i never opened them before so to make it disappear i have to go and rewatch all the individual sub tabs of the collections etc.

    The Ohio Is Bad

    Yes dispression is prefixed towards the bad but occasionaly RNG might favor you or the enemy might just turn idealy into your terrible dispression. So it can happen. But from what you have said in general this ship has terrible shots. So it's the 2 factors i mentioned . The "set dispression" for your account for that ship and the RNG. So what happened in that game is actually a favorable dispression RNG factor and perhaps a bit of generic luck. But you can't reproduce that regularly with that ship cause from what you said its generaly unfavorable to you. But i bet there are others out there that will tell you that this ship is super accurate and their favorite.

    So should i go play 300 matches just to prove a point in the forums? And then you will tell me "300 matches is still to little, go play 1000 (on a ship that sells me shotwise) So that i doom myself and my teams... " No thanks. You just KNOW when a ship is accurate or not. 10 matches are enough to be able to say if it is or if RNG just f you up on occasion. You don't need 300 or 1000 matches to confirm the obvious. As you don't need more than 10 matches with Stalingrand to confirm it is in general a very accurate ship regardless of RNG on a specific match.

    Another example. On this account i have Arizona. A bit slow but very consistend. Back when i was starting on the other account i got Arizona there too. Cause i was remembering it from this account. I needed to have a good tier 6 premium bb. Well i ended up to play it very rarely on the other account. You know why? Cause it shoots like S_ _ T on the other account. Even easy targets it messes up. So also on Arizona i notice quite different gun performance. I have also noticed that on the other account i have a Dunkerque black friday version that i got from a container. Tried it, shooted terribly. Guns quite bad. Then after some days from a supercontainer i got Dunkerque again but normal version this time. Well there is a difference. The normal version is more consistend shotwise. Not that it can be called accurate. But lets say "normal" for a Dunkerque. The black friday Dunkerque salvos the shells open up like the legs of the athletes at the gymnastics. So black friday Dunkerque is unplayable while the other at least is ok for a Dunkerque. That on same account. But i mean black version Dunkerque is a copycat of the other. But i see a difference between the 2. Seems like when you get a ship as if a secret "dice" is rolled that sets your ship gun considtency apart from the RNG in the match. Of course this dice roll of the guns consistency is always within the general limits of the ship's accuracy. So probably there are more accurate and less accurate Petropavlovsks out there but in general the Petro is a accurate ship. Perhaps with ships like Ohio the margins are larger so other people got lucky and got the good versions while others got the crap ones. That is why you see those matches on youtube "250k in Ohio" "300k in Ohio" and you can barely get to 80k and still feel fine. You know what? Perhaps i ll stream some Ohio games to show you how bad it is. Then you will be convinced there is something fishy about it.

    Nop. He and flamuu are the biggest streamers in attendance for WoWs in EU. Hey you can check it out for yourself how many watch Flambass when he streams.

    I already covered that i don't mean RNG that is a general factor for everyone. I am talking about constantly bad gun performance irrelevent to the RNG. It's like 2 things. Example. A bad RNG Stalingrand salvo might be disappointing but in general Stalingrand is a very accurate ship. I am not talking about the RNG insonsistency that can happen to everyone even on most beloved ship but about a constantly bad gun performence. So think of it like 2 separate luck factors. RNG and ship gun consistency. Well it's Flambass his shots were always on target. But the shells some landing short some behind some glancing some overpens some full pens yeah but on a similar shot my Montana would deliver more. 1500 people were watching and were confirming this live. They were like "man i dont know what to say, your Montana salvos indeed look like drunk" He was to play the ship if someone would make him a certain donation of course now he upped that price considerably so i doupt he ever plays Montana again. I wish i had the game to show you.

    There is also the Flambass' Montana. The chat was urging him to play the ship. He just always says no. And eventually on some occasion he accepted to do it but even before the match he stated that his Montana shoots like drunk. And is ery inconsistend. Of course all the chat disaggreed with that claim and i was douptful since my Montana shoots generaly very reliably so i thought that maybe Flambass was exagerating. And perhaps that would be the match that would make him finally love the ship. Well he was right to hate it. It was shooting like a secondary speced GK and even worse than that. Of by the end of the match he won and did around 130k but he had so many opportunities and had so good positioning cause i mean Flambass is an ace but his shots although quite accurate markwise just weren't delivering. And shot after shot after shot, same behavior. And he was repeating "I told you people my Montana is a piece of s_ _ t . You were thinking i am lieing? Here you see it for yourselves. And i have seen streams and others doing great in it , it's just that MY MONTANA is like that" At the end he won cause he tanked a lot played very correctly etc but he could win far more easily if the ship wasn't selling him shot after shot. "selling him" is greek expression means "l;ets you down but with emphasis" Same with people we can say "that guy sold me" means "he abandoned me when i was counting on him" , Anyway so Montana was selling Flambass shot after shot. He won but was a hard win and he did 130k but if his Montana would deliver as my Montana he could easily break 200k that match cause he never missed a shot. Never overshooted. Never miscaclulated. All his shots were well marked it s just that the outcome kept being disappointing. We talking about 1500k people watching live and were confirming this jaws droped. So it seems that also on that case there was the repetition of what i just descrbed. Seems like each account has some ships that sell the player. And seems to be random. But i understand that THIS would be something that neither WG nor the players with the very good stats would like to admit cause they wouldn't want to admit that apart them being very good at the game there is also that "luck" factor on their favor with some ships compared to the other players that got the bugged versions. This could be also called "confirmation bias" on your part you know. I perfectly understand that you don't want such a thing that i am describing to be an actual fact cause it doesn't suit you. And it is natural to see it that way from your percpective. That is all skill and no luck. I am not talking about RNG that is a general factor that is in place for all. I am talking about a constant inconsistency of some ships that then you go and watch a stream and there you realise you just have the drunken version of the ship.

    If i would do that it would hit worse than a secondary GK. And i mean it feels conventient in US bbs to put secondaries there or AA since range mod with those slow shells seems like a bad idea. But the thing is that without it the salvos go terrible. I need to work all these "tricks" range mod+ dispression -11% mod just to perform average. Nothing special. Just average. And then it just turns into a Montana with just 8 guns.

    MM could be a matter of chance. I have a feel i get better teams on other account for Bayern but it could be also due to the fact i generaly top the scoreboards with my other Bayern. Because it has more consistent shots so it delivers when needed and that makes me win more. But we talking about 100 matches here and 65 matches there. And i notice also difference on that recent ship we got that tier 6 Guilio Cesare. On this account the guns seem to perform better. More citadels generaly the shots go more concentrated on this. On the other account the dispression seems much worse. I understand that win ratio may vary due to luck. You may get better teams etc. But the shot consistency is a constant thing. Constantly my Bayern on other account shoots better. The salvos are tighter etc. Of course bad team happen on other Bayern too. But on that other Bayern i top the boards even on defeats. On this Bayern of this account i am usually average. How could i be higher when it sells me on shots i should be making great damage due to the fact that the shells fo all around the target. I mean its only logical of course when you dont do enough damage with the BB you end up lower. Can't be a conisidence. We talking that on this accound Bayern shoots like drunk and the other shoots much better. This at the course of 65 matches. You mean that after some point it will start sell me also there? And that on this it will get fixed? PS Another example. Satsuma. On this account it did well. I could get like 130k games on ranked. On the other account though Satsuma was a dream. I could do 130k minimal. Sometimes 150k and even that felt unlucky that game cause i had no citadels and did 150k despite that. But once i also did 230k on my alt account Satsuma on ranked. Amd some other times around 200k . So also in Satsuma i see some difference.At leat it performs well on both accounts that. It just that on the other it makes me feel a god. Like the ones i watch at streams :P

    In fact after the very good results on the alt account on Bayern i thought exactly that! That probably now i am better than before , more experienced , so time to rise also THIS ACCOUNT's Bayern stats. So i set of to do it. No luck. Still terrible. Yeah i know what must be done etc but the ship doesn't deliver so the results didn't change much. Perhaps a slight improvement it was both in damage and win ratio but at this rate it would take me years to get Bayern even at 50%. So i still see a difference. Big difference. This account Bayern is very unreliable shot wise and when you miss some critical opportunities and your team doesn't deliver much anyway you usually lose even if you know in theory what to do and where to shoot. On the other account is day and night difference. Apart the obvious tgood tagerts the Bayern there also citadels on more unlikely citadable targets on strange angles etc. So it delivers more there. So you are right but up to a point. Yes i am more experienced now but it's not only that. The Bayern of the alt account feels like a totally different experience compared to this. So my theory still stands. Seems that the ships perform differently from account to account. PS i also have a real life friend that has 2 accounts as well. And on some ships that has very good stats on the other account they underperform for him and has terrible stats. So on one account he looks as ace and on the same ships on other account he looks as terrible. And i mean he is the same guy! Also this counts for matchmaking. On some ships he does better than his alt account performencewise but he has much lower win ration compared to the other account with certain ships. As if the game doesn't want him to win with certain ships. Amazing! Right?
