Greetings Fellow World of Warships Commanders!


My name is Iolair, and I’m the host of a YouTube channel featuring educational and entertaining content about WoWs.  I’ve been an active player of the game since August 2016 with the experience of nearly 15K random battles.


I opened my channel in March 2018 which now has more than 250 videos.  I feature content with guidance and education, news and information, reviews of ships, and commentated replays which highlight instructive and entertaining gameplay.  Many replays are provided by fellow players like yourselves from the NA, EU, and SEA servers.

 

I invite you to stop by my channel and review what it has to offer.  I’ve included here a playlist of sample content, featuring the channel trailer, news from the WoWs Development Blog, a ship review, guidance for secondary builds, a GK funtage, a channel update, plus a few replays, including a multi-perspective “division” replay with a nail-biting ending.

 

Thanks much for your consideration!

 

I hope to see you out there on the virtual seas, and I wish you happy sailing!

 

—Iolair
(a.k.a., An Iolair Ghorm, “The Blue Eagle” in Scots Gaelic)

Same as what I've provided: "Iolair" with a leading capital "i" (not a leading lowercase "L").

OK, I see now: you want to understand the pronunciation (you asked about the spelling).  The pronunciation is (using English spelling rules) is ""EEə-lar".  You can also hear a pronunciation of the name here from someone who speaks Scots Gaelic: https://forvo.com/word/iolair/

I tried alot of the Sub mode when it was out. I really enjoyed it with a friend in 2 DD div. My T-61 loved hunting the subs.I found a great tactic was to go straight for them if isolated and around 1km out hit it in the reverse and depth charge away. Mostly this was enough to kill them. Im randoms i have no idea what subs would do. Prob along same lines as CV's. If its a great p[layer then there not much you can do. At least Subs would have the OP spotting as a CV.

A stand alone PvE Sub game mode would be fun. Like the old op Dynamo but just with subs?

Great video as always:cap_horn:

How on Earth do you earn a Kraken Unleashed with only four kills listed on the leaderboard? Find out how while enjoying a good demonstration of buffed German battleship accuracy in the Gneisenau.

Mephiztopheleze brings the Udaloi ("bold" in Russian) to a domination match on Two Brothers.  Will this player's execution live up to the namesake of the ship?

Question to the community: do you find you play cruisers better in random battles when playing solo or in divisions?  This is a matter I've been grappling with over the last few weeks, so wanted to spark some conversation and seek some feedback.

Stupidly large amount of damage?  Check.  Kill more than half the opposition?  Check.  Might still lose the game because several allies are unengaged?  Double-check.

Ranked Sprint double feature!  The first featuring the Pommern and the second with the Jean Bart.  No shortage of close combat and questionable gameplay from allies and opponents alike.  I hope you enjoy!
