I'd say thank you for fixing the camo matchup for AA guns on the Soviet ships, that was very good. 

 

Now the German and Royal Navy ones reamain to be fixed, but that was a good step.

So I checked GK, and it seems fine: (sorry for the red colour, I put significant colour in purpose)

But indeed for Conqueror it is still missing:

Are there any other ships with this issue?

So, the German mounts I was referring to are 2 specific ones (funnily enough not found on GK), the 1x1 55mm L/77 Gerät 58 found e.g. on Z-52 and Hindenburg...

 

812864795_WorldofWarships21_02_202011_10_32.thumb.png.5af63c02bbcd90b9d17e2eb95c7e0b60.png

 

...and the 1x1 40mm L/56 Flak 28 found e.g. on Admiral Hipper and Prinz Eugen.

Also a minor one, the Soviet 1x2 76mm 39-K found on stock Kiev, Ognevoi and Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya (hope it's right :cap_book:).

Apart from these and the RN ones, the rest seem right (at least at high tiers) :cap_like:

 

Lastly, a curiosity, is it nomal that Kremlin's bridge looks...stange? If I compare it to Slava (which is supposed to be same class), the latter one's looks more polished/complete. Is there a polygons limit that doesn't allow it on Kremlin or it could potentially be made the same?

 

Kremlin:

Slava:

Thanks for the attention:cap_like:

I played few randoms and everything looks ok to me, but I'm missing a Mission counter: the 10k base XP one that get you 1 day Premium on live server. Why that?

One thing is still a problem in the PT: the HDR option. I've got some map or rendering heavly overexposed in the light grey areas (clouds and Coal bags). And even if I've got a pretty recent LG monitor don't have any control for HDR.

 

Is it possible to have a switch on and off in the Graphics Settings or something like that? Txs!

It's missing in the displayed missions, but we'll credit you with the reward if you manage to fulfill it :)

One little thing and it might be I'm being silly and missing the control for it, but the noise when your on fire is really loud and annoying when compared to other sound effects, I know everyone is testing IHFE so I'm on fire a lot on the PTS but is there a way to turn down that one specific sound effect?

I just played my first battle in this PTS and I got disconnected (WG servers to blame but you know that story, don't you?).

 

Well, instead of reconnecting like I always do on the live server, I got an immediate penalty without being able to re-join the battle.

Please tell me this is some BS exclusive to the PTS and that this won't be like this on the live server.

 

Because if it does many of us won't even be able to play due to often penalties imposed by WG and that will definitely force be to uninstall/delete the game for good.

 

Can someone confirm this? @YabbaCoe

 

Thanks.

The Winter-Season Mission has the same requirements and a base XP-Counter for 30 000 so you can check your Progress there

WG...if you really want to improve the AI in coop, then please also increase the rewards. As for now, the new bots protract coop matches while the rewards stay the same, which makes coop way less attractive for completing tedious missions. But well...maybe that's what you want after all?

I suspected that already a while ago ... as mr conway referred to an ominous Spreadsheet recently concerning this matter ... I am shure WG knows EXACTLY what development COOP is taking actually.

 

Since COOP was discovered by lots of High-Quality-Gamers as a fast and effective way to grind missions they had to do something about it ...

Not sure if WG will say it but... "working as intended".

 

It's not new that WG wants to kill the PvE and make it as bad as possible either by breaking the operations, completely removing them or making all PvE harder and less enjoyable.

Hi there,

 

Could explain to me and us ; why the cruisers, DD and others can sink easily  a Yamato by fire or just shooting at it. It's like the Yamato is big blob of butter where anybody can fire at and get sure to get it!!

Where's the Yamato who could brawl at close quarters ??? you buffed it really bad due to some " cry babies" tx.

It has become the first target to sink for easy XP!!

Please do something about it on the next patch, because everyboby gonna play invicibles and OP cruisers !.

Hello 

 

As u said in the announcement,

Quote

Once you complete this mission, the Winter Season #2 mission from the previous Public Test will become available to you. After completing this mission as well, you'll gain access to the Winter Season #1 mission from the Public Test 0.9.0.

Because I don't have so much time last month,  I decide to finish the 3 missions this time. But after I finished the mission#2 this afternoon and the mission#3 yesterday, the mission#1 doesn't show up until now. Is it a bug? I hope u can fix it as soon as possible.Thanks

Thanks Crysantos, I did use the Winter  Mission, on Friday, to control the amount (txs katzenjammer)

 

But yesterday I connected with my NA account and suddenly the Mission is displayed! Magic!?

@YabbaCoe, this was reported, right?

 

Well, I see the absolutely same issue on the PTS again.

 

reflectionz.jpg

 

Still insanely harsh reflections on a completely overcast day with no visible sun anywhere on the sky.

 

I'm sure you don't need another video, it's absolutely the same as last time I reported it.
