I managed to get a new YouTuber to feature my recent 7 kill NC game

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J3phIBZI130

He seems pretty new to WOWS and it looks like he is having the same glitching issues I had when I tried to convert the file to video, I thought it was my computer being a potatoe but a couple patches back I noticed the replays haven't been running that well so its good to know it may not be my computer

I have also had a couple iffy replay files lately; my most recent in date was a winning match in my Des Moines (2nd on the scoreboard) where the turret crosshairs just refused to move around (they remain or either side of the chevron at the very center of the UI, not showing the turrets' rotation) and the ribbons and DMG counter stayed AWOL. A pity, really.

As for Roma...I dunno whether I could handle the wonky dispersion without starting to reconsider all of my life choices. Some players affirm that you just have to aim your guns lower than usual (a little bit below the waterline) to properly counterweigh Roma's shenanigans, but I like a ship whose firepower and accuracy remain consistent at all distances. *throws dirty look at Friedrich der Große* If I have 40 Euros to spare, I'd rather invest it into two T10 perma-camos...and anyway, I'm not spending another kopek on games right now.

ION:
- Got Baltimore and Mogami back.
- Now farming credits to afford the North Carolina (buyback) and Neptune (new ship).
- Might retake the Myoko or Aoba, dunno. Or maybe the Leander.


Pet peeve of the moment: who in the nine hells at Wargaming decided it was okay to the leave the non-human enemy ships in the new training room without an AI? Bring back the "active" option that was already present in the mod, FFS.

Well it took me a little less than a month to grind 350k Free XP to reach 375k and finally buy the Nelson. The first 200k I did with the free 7 days Premium time WG gave out and stacking all my special flags. After that I did the last 150k on regular account and stacking regular flags, camo, and first day win bonuses. It's pretty amazing how much of a effect premium time and stacking XP flags with Free XP flags really made a huge difference

I like the Nelson, I like her allot but I just can't get her into a workable position like I can with USN Standards (she plays allot like them to me) which means I can't get those guns singing. I will say this is the first ship in a long time that I have enjoyed playing, I will easily rank her up there with the Colorado or Clemson as my new Go-To fun ship I think

That said I utterly hate my Guilio Caesar, its not that it is a bad ship but I can't get nothing but bad teams. Its gotten so bad to the point I just want it gone but WG won't refund my gold back at this point. I'll just tuck her away till the Italian BB line comes around because she just disgusts me

The recent handful of premiums released by WG noticeably had something funky about them; if it's not bad MM (in your case; since I don't have the GC I can't tell myself), it's bad dispersion/accuracy. And I can't help but feel like WG is grasping at straws now, on how they're designing new ships/lines, as if they'd run out of distinct national flavors and are haphazardly strapping flaws and qualities together in the desperate and misguided hope of birthing something unique and interesting.


Anyway, I just repurchased the North Carolina and that latest buyback concludes my port repopulation spree, in which I worked like a madman to generate a total of 45.52M credits (KGV, Fuso, Cleveland, Mogami, Baltimore and NC) in roughly a week. Their hull and mod upgrades can wait, I'm not in a hurry. However, I can now concentrate on getting new ships, in this case a spanking new T9 HMS Neptune. Still 7.2M credits to go, fight-o~! Can't help but smile (huge DPM and good AP values) and cringe (another huge citadel inside a fragile-as-hell body) at the same time, while reading the reviews and player opinions about this British vessel.


Aside from that, I'm getting used to the Missouri again (I'm too used to my trusty and oh-so-nimbler Alabama). There are days where I do really well in it (almost had a kraken in it the previous day), but there are times where RNG really screws me over, like a surprise grenade in the mailbox. Like "I just shot your full broadside at less than 10km, a little above the waterline and right under the smokestack, so...why am I not seeing citadel ribbons and why do I only see 1,360HP DMG? The F---, RNJesus?"

And I'm surprised: I had TWO matches in the Yamato where I not only got top spot, but my team actually sailed with me as a coordinated combat group, shooting at targets I designated. Usually, my assigned teammates just give me a very wide berth and practically ignore me (and my calls for assistance or attention) for the entirety of the match.

I have been a bit under the weather for the past couple of days, so I have played only sporadically, when I wasn't feeling too woozy and could focus my mind well enough. I just completed one French personal assignment and got the Bretagne for free; I envy those who managed to get the Lyon and Richelieu PAs, I kinda had my fill of slow, lumbering superdreadnoughts lately. ION, I bought the Bismarck back. Who knows, maybe I'll get the Bayern back, too, and grind my way to the Gneisenau, which I never got in the first place (my Bis being a shortcut ship from last year's event).

I have been hitting a few hurdles lately, in regards to home networking.
TL;DR…

I'm taking a break from the game right now till the after the French BBs drop, I usually love missions like the ones for the French but I just can't bring myself to bother with them

That sucks about the wifi issue, I'm currently hitting a wall with my computer, I built it around 8-9 years ago as a budget gaming PC but she is showing her she. I'm planning on building a new one but looks like graphics cards are hard to get and expensive even for older units

Well, out of annoyance, I whipped out my mothballed wifi repeater, a Linksys RE4100W, and set it up partway between the router and my room. While my ping seems to fluctuate a tad more (31-38ms ping) than when on a direct connection (stable 35ms), I now no longer seem to have those lagspikes. I'll have to monitor this over a longer stretch of time, though. I nevertheless remain somewhat annoyed I must rely on an electronic middleman that must be kept on most of the time. Well, it's either that, the relatively painless way, or I go Bob the Builder on my own house (and I'd have to pass the very long Ethernet cable through the bathroom, to boot), which I'd hate to do. Truth be told, I'd love to get an Asus wifi card like the PCE-AC68, but that thing is prohibitively expensive for me.

And I'll use this post to reaffirm my uttermost hatred of RN BBs and what they've (now permanently) done to the WOWS meta. Why didn't WG make them like the RN cruisers - AP only? For crying out loud, my Scharnhorst had been set on fire this evening more than I could ever count; I couldn't even have a jaded laugh at myself... ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)

EDIT: yeah, cryptocurrencies really screwed us gamers this time. I know it's immature, churlish, for me to wish misfortune on people who are merely trying to eke out a living in this complicated world, but sometimes I wish Bitcoin, Ethereum and what-have-you-next would just crash once and for all and leave the rest of us plebeians alone, yet in peace. :-/ Due to the Bitcoin hoopla, it looks like 2018 will be a VERY bad year to build a custom PC. GPUs and RAM are particularly expensive right now.

EDIT bis: didn't realize it, but I have now hoarded enough FXP to make the jump to the Großer Kurfürst. I know I'm hoarding those points for the Nelson, but now that I'm aware of this little mathematical shortcut, the demon of opportunity is tempting me again. *tries to escape*

EDIT ter: got my Shinonome. Funny, I thought I'd have to do some grueling task to get it, but it was only "play 1 battle with a T8-10 ship". XD

I don't know how the French missions are going for you folks but as for me, I'm ready to tear my hair off and weave a Persian carpet out of all the clumps accumulating on the floor.

- Get torp hits? Had to re-learn how to DD, but in the end, no biggie.
- Get citadels? Just had to break out my Missouri and I was good to go.
- Get kills? My Scharnhorst scoffs at you.
...
...
...
- Get victories? ............uuuh, lemme call you back, I might have a problem here.

Honestly, I'm going through a spate of defeats that's starting to drive a wooden stake through my heart here. 8/15 victories secured for now, but bloody hell I'm really having bad luck nowadays.

OTOH, the KGV seems to be a weird ship. I've had some strangely bad matches in it (this BB seems to lose big portions of health even when bow-tanking, maybe because of its huge superstructures), but this week-end I had a kraken in it, and yesterday I almost had a second tentacle action achievement. It's like I'm dealing with a ship that has bipolar disorder or something.
