    Hi listeners, welcome to another episode of Warships Podcast. For this show we are joined once again by the one and only Trevzor (aka Friend of the Podcast ;D) who graciously came on the show last minute to cover a recent hot issue regarding the temporary ban of players using ReShade.

    A recent update has made a mod such as ReShade trigger Wargaming's anti cheat system and players have been giving feedback and discussing modifications in World of Warships. Trevzor took the opportunity to come join us and talk about this subject, as well as address some of the concerns or issues people have. While talking on the subject of modifications, the cast touched on other mods like Angle mod, as well as the Running Lights and debated the uses in competitive settings.

    Covering other show topics the cast discussed some of the new ships they have been testing, and these include the Guilio Cesare, and Huang He. The crew goes into details of their testing and give opinions on whether the ships are in their current state worthy of purchase and fun to play. The Russian Battleship October Revolution is mentioned, as a new mission set is now available to participate and/or purchase similar to how the Graf Spee event was.

    Episode 57: What in the Clan Battles is going on in here?

    Hi listeners, for this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast we discuss Clan Battles! Finally after waiting all this time World of Warships gets the highly anticipated clan competitive mode that has been long sought after by its player base. The cast breaks this topic down and discusses what is currently known and also speculates as to what might be with this new competitive mode.

    Getting started on the Clan Battles topic the cast jumps into the controversial issues, beginning with the exclusion of the Carrier class from Clan Battles Season 1. This has drawn widespread criticism and praise from supporters and opponents alike. The podcast crew gives their opinions as well as echo and discuss some of those from other Warship Community members. With the limits to CV's, the cast touches on the other limits and that is that one team will only be able to bring up to 1 Battleship per. Great discussion and debate follows and Clan Battle's Meta is also brought up.

    While on the subject of Battleships, the cast moves to discuss BB meta and what ships will most likely be viable in this new competitive setting. All the BB's are hashed out with the strengths and weaknesses they bring and how they will stack in a Cruiser heavy meta. With the ship type of Cruisers the cast shifts into what will most likely be the prominent class seen and breaks down what they feel might be the viable Cruiser options to be played in the meta. Last class in this topic is Destroyers and the crew expands on the Cruiser meta and how DD's will play a role in it and how a Destroyer will have to play with the excess amounts of radar, hydro, and other non Anti Air abilities that Cruisers will now be free to load up with out the presences of CV's.

    Regretfully with time constraints the crew was not able to touch on two new ships we have been testing but will get to that topic in the next cast. Thank you everyone for listening and look forward to having you next time on the Warships Podcast!

    Episode 56: A Crazy Week of Updates!

    Hi listeners! Welcome back to everyone and sorry for not having a show last week. Multiple members of the crew have been sick and has taken a toll on our ability to deliver content, however we are back! With much to discuss, the cast get to sailing with the plethora of topics starting with HIJMS Musashi. We speculate and go into the possibilities for the ship and what it could be if its Tier 9 or 10. After our speculation the crew reflects on just how much the game has changed as well as all the content that has been added just in this year alone. With all the new ships and ship lines, plus the Co Op and Clan Port/Battles, Wargaming has not stopped to take a break and it does not look like they are slowing down anytime soon. An exciting time to be a Warships fan.

    Cruising right along, the cast gets into topics, discussion, and debate involving AP damage from Battleships versus Destroyers. This topic brings up game play and a healthy debate about game balance, as the cast gives their views and feelings on it. The crew touches on the new testing phase for KMS Graf Zeppelin noting GZ Test I and II and some of the changing being rolled out for testing. More to come with this ship, so keep a look out for it. While talking on the subject of changes, the podcast crew gets into the new patch which brought about the Clan Port but noted that the smoke changes did not go through. Wargaming is still working on this so we will have to keep an eye on the test server as these things are always subject to change with Wargaming.

    The topic of clans and the new port is continued, with the cast debating and discussing clan structure, the new resource system for clan and overall clan balance. While on organized play we talk about the lastest news from Supremacy League and ending on a serious note. Ship Comrade has suffered greatly due to Hurricane Irma passing through Florida. He really needs all of our help, and if you can please help him in anyway you can. Thank you!

RN Giulio Cesare a tier 5 Italian Battleship is an exciting new development to the other stated Italian Battleship (Still confirmed for 2017 release by Devs) RN Roma. Kelorn ask Vanessaira about her excitement for more Italian Flavor being added to the game but Zoup spoils it, by going on about battleship over population.

    Episode 53: Yuzral and the Tragedy of the Graf Zeppelin

    Hi listeners! In for this weeks episode of the World of Warships Podcast. We invited Wargaming EU Community Contributor and YouTuber Yuzral, to give us some Euro prospective on recent game events and news. Kelorn leads the interview and ask Yuzral how he got into creating online content about gaming and doing Wargaming products. Yuzral talks about getting into World of Tanks, and a competing tank game as well as doing much content for the Star Trek Online MMO.

    After the interview we jump right into our topics, which starts with the KMS Graf Zeppelin. An anticipated ship that has seen many changes during testing and which has, (as of the recording of this podcast) just been released to the public for sale. The cast gives their critique of this decision and give further thoughts and opinions about the ship and what it might need to be competitive and worthy of being the German carrier. While on the topic of German ships we touch on SMS K├Ânig Albert and its imminent removal from the game as Wargaming considers the ship too overpowered. We go over stats and draw comparisons to Imperator Nikolai another premium ship which was removed after being deemed way too powerful for sale.

    Moving on to our other topics of discussion we bring up the Royal Navy, their battleships as well as heavy cruisers and discuss how the RN envisioned and used their naval assets. HMS Nelson has been released and the cast discusses the ship as well as their opinions on it and RN Battleships in general. We continue the show by talking about the new missions, challenging hard mode like challenges, new content, and the Yamamoto Campaign. A discussion is had about the Challenges difficulty and comparisons to the level of difficulty that the EU region gets in contrast to the other regions.

    We finish up our show with talk of a historical mode that many of the Wargaming Community Contributors have been testing. This has been a ton of fun and we hope that some intrepid mod maker out there could help assist with what LittleWhiteMouse has been spear heading and envisioning for a nice alternative to other game modes present in World of Warships. If you are an UI Moder and able to help please check out LitttleWhiteMouse's post on Reddit and the Forums about this.

    Thank you for listening and see you next cast!
