    Homebrewing Tips, Tricks, and Shared Secrets

    Any other homebrewers going to Homebrew Con in June? My American Brown placed first in Boston, so now the trip is more meaningful to me.

    Clan Battles tonight 5:30 PST

    Is this a cross server clan battles? I remember seeing something about that, and maybe it is contributing?

    Won't be on much

    Got home tonight and figured I would try WoT again to see if I DC there. Before even doing it I noticed that my WG client had some little patch go through. Thought that funny, and logged into WoWs. Played a couple games with no DCing. Thanks WG for reminding me why I hate you.

    I am using my own modem, but have thought about asking for one from Spetrum. They are free now through them so no more rental fees. Also my current big thing for spectrum is that they are just part of SPECTRE 😵 I have not played WoT or WoWp in a long time... I would probably have to make an alt account just so I don't try to take a tier 9 tank/arty out and get stomped... But might try that as a bigger conspiracy for me is that WG is punishing my anti-CV-rework-ness....

    I can try that. I have tried similar things in the past with little noticed. At the same time I have turn my graphics all the way down and still DCing... I might call spectrum and see what they think. This has been slowly getting worse over the last few months... WG support is useless and blaming my router as I DC more when connected through it instead of through a direct connection...

    Nope. It is spectrum. They are the best I can get in the area, 100Mbps and I speed test around 115Mbps. About 4 or 5 months ago, I started disconnecting from JUST WoWs, and contacted them about. There was also a lot of general service disruptions going on so they sent a guy out a couple times. General service has been better, but I kept disconnection from WoWs only. I have a new computer and have been trying all the things google searches turn up to help with the issue but it keeps getting worse. Yeah I go through a router too, and when wired in, I didn't have any issues up to 10 minutes into a match. I still feel it is on WG's side some. Sure there might be more I can try, I will call my ISP and ask them about it when WG support asks me too. But tonight I some how got enough stuff to get the Hermes CV thing so did. It was the worst disconnection fest I had ever experienced in WoWs. I DCed less then 5 minutes( "normally" the first DC wouldn't happen until after 5 minutes) in match one with two more to follow. In my second match it was, first DC was at 2 minutes, second around 8 and third around 17... Not sure it 100% on my side...

    I have been trying to get the game to not disconnect for over a week now with WG support. This is the only game I play online that disconnects every game. If given something to try, I might be on for a game or two. Otherwise, I hate to say I will not be playing much as it is not worth it when any where after 5 minutes in I can disconnect at random.

    Craft beer heads.

    Any homebrewers and AHA members going to Homebrew Con in Providence RI this year? I just reserved a room.

    Taking a break

    Sorry to see you stepping back, but completely understand after these last few weeks. Hopefully they will fix it and you will be back.

    Update 0.8.0

    Ah yes ONE ship is broken so lets screw all the others. While they are at it they should add a 30 second fuel timer so if it runs out the planes crash and take longer to reload...

    Update 0.8.0

    My thing with AA is I can't seem to dodge the flank. Just as I go in I get a wall of it (yes I know that was the point) and down go 3+ planes from range with the rest being yellow/red. Maybe I am just really bad at the new play style but it is not for me or balanced in my opinion.

    Update 0.8.0

    Less WoWs. The games play of most of the players changed with the last patch. I am sure as fewer people play CVs, people will return to "normal" game play, but this last patch was a dozy for my mind set in the game.

    Update 0.8.0

    Sold my nonpremium CVs... And honestly have been playing less since this patch...

    Update 0.8.0 - Public Test Info

    Well, I think I might be done playing CVs in general... Not going to put up with this craptastic game play if they think that what they gave us is an actual rework... AA is way too strong. I had to games where I did 7K or less damage... A tier 8 in a tier 10 game can do nothing useful... Only way to do actual damage is to be top tier and even then you lose 3 or 4 planes on your first attack run. Just not worth it. I will play a few more games in them, but am not holding out hope. Not to mention the autopilot decides if you want to be in forward or reverse on its own. Playing as non CV ships, I stopped paying attention to any planes not 2 tiers above me. Very sad update. Biggest hope for me is that they realize this was a massive F up and reverse it.
