Saw it can be played on macOS, downloaded it and got into the game. Changed the graphics settings and the game went black, changed ports still black, I restarted game still black, changed graphics settings back to default, still black. Joined game to see if that would fix, nope still black. Quit the game and restarted then got a warning about unsporting play. Now I have a pink name and my game is still black. Uninstalled game.

 

Bye-bye. Great game by the way.

In Windows "black problem" started with latest patch. Some patches have different faults, but WG is fixing it with time. So wait a moment and give to game a second chance.

The Mac version is a bit clunky, just the windows compile running under a 'Special Version' of Codeweaver.

Runs (just) on my MacBook Pro but refused to work until patched after upgrading to Catalina.

 

If you can I would recommend running the Windows version in Bootcamp, likely to have better performance.

Only to headbutt another wall, this time working as intended one - tier 4 carriers:Smile_trollface:

 

If WG is still determined to shoo shoo new players away, I don't intend on stopping them

Leaving a running match is often punished in pvp games. It doesn't matter, what the reason is, because the game won't know, if the game crashed  or if it was by intention.

 

You could try to figure out, why your game is black and solve it. Contact the Support etc. The pink name is not that much of an issue

That's what you get for using "Mac" :Smile_teethhappy:

Seriously, just get PC and play it on an actual rig....:Smile_trollface:

probably for the best, a mac wouldnt be able to handle this non-demanding game at any decent fps anyways.

If you ever decide to reconsider, use someone's invite code for the extra loot! :Smile_coin:

 

Btw, you bring a fair point in that bugs can make people quit a game just as much as a game going bad can. Both can be equally smelly :cap_old:

Without even trying to get into a PC vs. Mac discussion, because those are just a waste of everyone's time, let me just tell you that I've probably been gaming longer than some people here have been alive, and if there's one constant - people that try to game on Macs because the games are "technically supported" pretty much always have issues like that. This is not isolated to World of Warships. For example, Elite Dangerous had a Horizons update some years ago that let you land on airless planets - on anything but a Mac, because instead of supporting universal stuff like OpenGL, Apple can't help themselves and make their own proprietary system that nobody uses or supports. You can find similar issues on pretty much any AAA game that got ported to MacOS. It's just not a gaming platform. At the end of the day the number of mac players is just too low to justify the expense of having the employees / work hours to maintain a properly working port, and most game developers that even make MacOS versions won't really do it properly. tl;dr - if you want to have a Mac, have one for work. If you want to game, get a PC (or a console if that's what floats your boat). You will *always* get issues with gaming on Macs.
