Let’s Play World of Warships: Saving Transylvania, Igor Cruiser (5 Kills)


In this fun Halloween PVE mode (scenario), we had to protect the Transylvania from the evil Rasputin super ship and it’s legion of undead battleships and nasty catapults. This Halloween scenario is actually a lot of fun!

World of Warships: Clemson, the little destroyer that could


This game was hectic for me. I started by getting into a really bad brawl at close range with an enemy destroyer. I had less than half health for most of the game. I end up getting annihilated by an Arkansas Beta but due most of the team’s efforts we end up winning anyways.

The Clemson is one of the best tier 4 ships in the game. It has an amazing turret layout that lets you play it aggressively because they track really well. Your shells are your main weapons. You’d have to get dangerously close to use torpedoes and to me it’s not worth dying.

World of Warships: Bayern, Great Support In A Tier 8 Match


Although I was outclassed, I played defensively with the support of a great cruiser player to prevent a stealth cap flank from happening.

Let’s Play World of Warships: Murmansk – You gotta earn that win, son


In this match, Greenteam, Draconiso, and I earn this win. It looked really bad all match but we ended up doing it. The lesson to be learned is to never give up hope in battle. Keep a cool head and victory is possible.

World of Warships: Why you should always kill destroyers ASAP in every game


This video basically shows why you should kill most destroyers as soon as humanly possible in every game you play. The replay is provided by my friend Diode_mA (Diode Milliampere). He basically goes straight for the enemy base and one-shots with his entire torpedo barrage an enemy battleship of a higher tier. He then proceeds to cap the enemy base with the enemy team doing little to stop him. GG!!!

People don’t realize how important base defense is. I blame the enemy destroyers and especially cruisers for costing their team the game.

WoWS: A close game in the Tier 6 German Cruiser Nurnberg

World of Warships:
This game was very close. It stayed pretty even during most of the match with most people playing their roles correctly. My Nurnberg is fully upgraded but uses no equipment (I’m always broke). It’s Captain has 4 skills only. No flags were being used.

No matter how hard we tried we still lost but it was a good effort! o7 My Ognevoi wasn’t fully upgraded either. It was missing the final hull and final torpedo upgrade.

Siege Breakers Sessions #3: How PC Gaming got its Groove Back

OG HQ Command Center

This week on Siege Breakers Sessions we began with PC building season as Deep Poke and new to the show, Rizim are both in the middle of building new gaming systems. It seems as if this has kept both of them from purchasing Holiday gifts, but it did take us into our first discussion about the resurgence of PC gaming and how PC gaming companies in the U.S. and the U.K. are seeing more people purchase high end gaming systems.

This lead us into talk about the PC gaming market and if perhaps MOBA’s and games like World of Warships helped to boost PC sales. A lot of us played World of Tanks and now World of Warships especially Rizim so it was good to have him on to talk about what’s been going on in the game.

Speaking of MOBA’s we discussed an article saying there really is no such thing as MMR hell where the ranking system in games such as DOTA 2, League of Legends and Heroes of Storm causes good players to end up stuck with bad players. The point of the article was that communications is the key because the win/loss record balances out anyway.

Towards the end it got kind of crazy. We were headed towards a discussion about games you play in the bathroom like Nintendo 3DS games or even old Gameboy or mobile games, but it somehow ended up becoming a story about embarrassing bowel movements. We learned J.A. takes his shirt off in the bathroom and Deep Poke goes even further. We had to break that madness by talking about the recently discovered official lyrics for the original Mario Bros game. We played a little of it which was so Japanese, but still great.

So check out this episode via the links or listen here or even download for later and let us know what you think.

World of Tanks 8.0 Review

 

World-of-Tanks-8.0

What is World of Tanks?

In a nutshell World of Tanks is the best tank simulator MMO out there. Think of it like a modern day Panzer Commander. They’re basically the same game except that World of Tanks is infinitely superior in every way: more units, online multiplayer, it’s free, it’s updated all the time, it has excellent support and community, etc. Then again I was comparing it to Panzer Commander which was made by the defunct SSI (Strategy Simulations Inc), which back in its day was sort of like the modern day company Paradox Interactive, who still make classic strategy games and other games that SSI would make back in the day!

If you still haven’t played World of Tanks then stop wasting your time playing stuff like Hello Kitty Online and get it here. Nothing against HKO, I play it too! If you want my advice with World of Tanks, read my World of Tanks strategy guide for beginners.

World of Tanks 8.0 Review

Chances are if you are reading this 8.0 Review you already know what WoT is, so let’s get down to what’s so good and bad about it!

[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWlAwC4P0rY[/youtube]

Graphics:

The game has a completely rewritten game engine that makes it look a more real than before. The graphics to me feel so much cleaner now almost like the difference from a DirectX 9 to DirectX 11 game. It’s that good of a change.

On most systems I’ve tested it, it has gained much performance. I compared it to it having the same settings. On my girlfriend’s laptop which has a really poor integrated video card by Intel, she went from getting usually 6 fps to getting 16 fps while having the game look much better. I went myself, on my 2011 main gaming PC, from getting about 35 fps on max everything to now getting 45-65 fps with the same settings.

World-of-Tanks-8.0

Physics:

No longer are we faced with invisible immortal air walls that prevent your tank from running off a cliff or a slope. Now not only can you do that if you want but you can push people off areas, or even flip them over if you run into them hard enough. Shooting, especially from a light tank will make your tank move along with the direction of the recoil. It is now possible to slide down a hill if you don’t have enough traction or the correct momentum to make it up. Tanks also now can be destroyed by putting themselves in places that they are not designed to be in, such as under water.

All this is really great but it also presents a problem because now I often, in at least every other game, see what I call “a bunch of retarded 12-year olds” do stuff like try to jump over a river then smash into it and blow up. I’ve also seen the 12-year old retards do things like try to jump fly over a bridge that is 200 feet high in the air and then have their tank shatter into pieces once it hits the ground. I report them because this is the kind of thing that ruins a game. To me it’s the equivalent of griefing the team such as feeding would in another game League of Legends.

If I were in charge of Wargaming, I would dramatically increase the penalty for committing suicide in the game in such an obvious way over and over to be the equivalent of team killing. Sure, the game already had team killing prevention but it’s simply not good enough to prevent all the 12 year olds from ruining the game, especially for the people playing who have spent money on the game and don’t have all day to game.

World-of-Tanks-8.0-4

Maps:

Most of the maps have been redone either to fix some annoying exploits or to take advantage of the better terrain and more destroyable features of the landscape. This in itself completely changes how you now play the game. It’s time to relearn most of the minor details of maps and that to me makes the game more interesting again!

Sound Effects:

Most of the combat sound effects have been improved to make them sound more real. All the cannons have a unique boom that’s specific to the specifications of the weapon. Armor damage, ricochet, and dings sound a lot more impressive than they did pre 8.0 Even the noises the ground makes as you drive over it and break stuff sounds a lot more real. This greatly improves my enjoyment of the game.

I wish though they would finally hire some voice actors to talk in the native language of whatever tank I am using. It’s really annoying to hear some American sounding guy saying “Well that’s gotta hurt!!!” or “Let’s move out!!!” as I use my German, French, or Russian tanks. Fix it! The quick fix would be just to remove the voice that’s there right now. I’d rather hear just the sounds of warfare than this guy talking!

world_of_tanks_8.0-1

Conclusion:

This is the best update I’ve ever seen for World of Tanks. Wargaming really keeps me coming back to this game with the monthly updates as well as the promise of World of Warplanes and World of Warships. Since the games will eventually share your unified account, it’s not a big deal to grind on World of Tanks since I know one day I will be sharing my XP, Credits, and Gold with my other “World of (blank)” accounts!
