So whats the deal with the mini map, it is not configurable for ship names. I really dont care to see that info in my map.

 

Is anyone else having this problem??

The only problem I'm having with the minimap is that i can't see my flak auras anymore.

I can't see the planes on the minimap. Which is a hell of a problem especially with CAs/CLs. Can't play them, but the Mino. And even then... There is no warning if you are looking in the wrong direction.

And also playing CVs is a problem. Can't place effectively my fighters. :Smile_trollface:

Mini Map is not usable since the update all I can see is ship names. Pretty much takes over the entire mini map.  Getting tired of you guys messing things up with every new release. Have you never heard of testing things before releasing them.

Perhaps you should care for this info, because it's a huge advantage to who which ship is where on the map. You can use this info to avoid certain ships or actively push them for an easy kill.

You should press + a few times to enlarge the map, then it is not clustered with ship names and you would actually see what is going on in the game. Does wonders for the winrate and personal rating as well.

Or perhaps I would just like the option to turn off ship names as I had before the update.  You are correct I could resize the mini map till it takes over the entire game screen but what would be the point of that.

Look smartass, if I want minimap tactics I will ask for them. As it stands I want no names on the minimap and I dont have that coz its fked. So unless you know how to turn them off, dont bother with posting...

With me the view triangle in minimap spills over out of the box into the main window, very annoying.

I checked the list of reported bugs and the names on is no there yet.

 I can't report it because they ask you for an analysis file or whatever it is they need you to provide instead of testing it themselves.

My minimap was normal last night..

we are talking about the one when it comes on when you hit TAB right? :P

 

Anyway, I suggest you post in current update bugs section because by looking your screenshot, it looks some kind of a bug :)

This is a known issue, it will be fixed with a micropatch as soon as that is ready - please bear with us for a few days.

 

 

Please take some screenshots and send those in to customer support as a bug report with a replay - that definitely needs to be looked at. https://eu.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wows/help/8544/8576/

Can we have a major patch this year that doesnt add anything new but instead fixes maybe 50% of bugs in game?

You misread it. They are forced to use the vital and most important battle informations but they are bothered by it so they want to disable it again. :Smile_facepalm:

Oh I see, well all is fine then. 

For a second I thought people have discovered the benefits of a mini map.
