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!

Kami gives us the run down of his trip to his ancestral homeland and oh yeah NoZoup! NoZoupForYou joins us for this weeks episode as well, and the cast takes a moment to reflect on trips abroad.

    Getting on the topic of new game changes and additions, the podcast talks about one of two new premium Italian Battleships that are set to come out this year. 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. The cast continues the discussion about the new changes being tested, talked about, and being implemented with regard to IFHE, Radar, and Smoke Firing changes.

    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 König 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!

    Episode 52: Notser washes up on the Podcast shores

    Hi listeners! In today's episode of the podcast we make like a beach as to see Notser run aground! Notser once again joins us for another exciting episode as we talk about the new World of Warships Blitz, Royal Navy Battleships, Ranked Season wrap up, Kii, and the New Pan Asian Destroyer line.

    Kelorn starts off interviewing Notser checking up with his amazing pace of content and getting his break down and opinion on WoWS Blitz for mobile devices. Notser sets expectations of what a player might see and gain from playing the mobile version and future status of that game line, production schedule, game state and play ability.

    We move into the main show topic with a great discussion on Royal Navy Battleships and what they bring to the game so far. Kami and Notser give their opinions and experiences from recent play and set the picture for what players might expect should no major changes occur. Vanessaira recount more experiences and the show debates the play style of the battleships. The Cast goes into details about the concealment and gun calibers changes through the tiers as well as differences from play style of other line battleships. The Tier 8 Battlehship HMS Monarch is brought up with regard to competitive play and we debate the possibilities giving its advantages and weaknesses. Other battleships are again discussed including HMS Warspite, HMS Queen Elizabeth, as the sister ships are different, as well as the play style of HMS King George the V. Drawing similarities to the Scharnhorst, KGV users need to utilize different shell ammunition types and the Cast talks about how to use this to a players advantage.

    Another battleship that was added to our topics was the new Imperial Japanese Navy Battleship. HIJMS Kii, a tier 8 battleship that will be similar to HIJMS Amagi but more dispersion, better AA, and torpedoes! While on the subject of IJN, the cast talk's about the Yamamoto Campaign and what challenges will be present in trying to complete it.

    Wrapping up our show, we discuss the newly announced Pan Asian destroyer line. This line is said to be testing a new type of torpedo for the game that would run deep, and not be able to hit destroyers or light cruisers. There is a great debate on the show and destroyer players Vanessaira and Notser give their take on the state of torpedoes and meta for current destroyer gameplay. Thank you very much for listening and check us out next week for another exciting episode!

    Episode 50: Supremacy League

    Hi listeners! In this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast we have joining us from the Supremacy League. Vas79, Cael, & Sterling. Regretfully Vas had microphone issues and we had to use chat and have his colleagues speak for him. Introductions proceed and the guest crew talks about how they came about forming what is now known as Supremacy League from their days and experience with another game, Mech Warrior Online (MWO). Discussion is had about Wargaming's attempts at both Team Battles and Ranked and our guest state their reasoning for hosting SL and continues plans even after Wargaming's Clan Wars comes out.

    Moving further into the major topic for the show. The cast talks about the difficulties for administrating such a large endeavor and the many issues with trying to come up with fare, competitive, but entertaining balance rule sets for the seasons. They bring up issues like the current smoke meta and quality of life for carrier players and how the SL team has been trying to formulate and normalize a better rule set to make game play better. The guest crew goes over a few ideas including the idea of a point system with point break downs for each ship, as well as a possibility of allowing Tier 9 Carriers for CV players. The SL team expands on the current frustrations for CV players, competing in the Supremacy League.

    The cast ask our guest crew why Tier 8 is the competing tier for SL and they go over the strengths and weaknesses for that option as it relates in a competitive environment. A debate is had on the differences between Tier 8, 9, and 10 as well as a continued discussion on what other competitive leagues have done like King of the Sea and Fight Night for example. Tier 9 is brought up and further debated as a possibility and discussed further.

    We round out the show with talk of Royal Navy Battleships and the line that will hopefully be released soon. HMS Nelson is discussed and confirmation that it will be unlocked via Free XP per Sub Octavian. Before closing, the guest crew talks about the upcoming Season 5 for SL and it's scheduling, roster sizes, and tiering. Thank you everyone for listening and support for this cast!

    Episode 49: The Smoke Changes Aren't Real

    Hi listeners, we get underway on episode 49 with recapping the events of last week for KamiSamurai and Kelorn's trip to Wargaming NA . They had a great time and touched on some of the great moments the two had while visiting the Wargaming Office and USS Hornet. Both joked about meeting in person for the first time and all the silliness that was had while doing Warships Live. If you missed them on Warships Live, you can go on Facebook and watch the replay of the video and see all the awful flavored soda's that the team was subjected to.

    Getting into show topics, we discuss the hot topic issue regarding the recently leaked super test information about potential upcoming smoke changes and Wargamings official statement about the issue. The cast debates the issues of super testing, and community reaction to changes while also making commentary on the needs for Wargaming to have an environment and/or testing vehicle to promote change to the game. Moving on, we talk about one of the newest ships we are testing and previewing. The KMS Graf Zeppelin, which is a new Premium German Carrier slated at Tier 8. This ship was provided to us by Wargaming for testing and previewing purposes and is subject to change. With this each cast member gives their opinion about this ship, and we also break down some of the major points of interest for GZ. Plus we touch on any issues players might be facing when using or playing against the carrier. The topic of carrier competitiveness at Tier 8 is brought up and the cast discusses which CVs might have potential and where Graf Zeppelin might stand with them. Rounding out our show topics the cast discuss the new 0.6.9 Player Test Server patch that is now available for testing. One of the big new game additions is the new campaign to add the famed IJN Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto. This campaign is a permanent campaign similar to the other two available and will allow players to go at their own pace to finish out the achievements to earn this historic commander. Yamamoto comes with special abilities for earning First Blood and Kraken and each member of the cast debates the nature, viability, and whether abilities like this should be in the game. There are also nice benefits to finishing the campaign that allows players to change basic camouflage paint schemes as well as adds a second cosmetic flag to the mix. With this we end the show talking briefly about the operations, campaigns, and the Dunkirk missions noting how nice it is to see so much content that has been added recently outside of random battles.

    Thank you everyone for listening and see you next cast!

    Episode 48: Torpillow Madness at Wargaming America

    PSA: Our apologies in advance for the audio quality this week, we were all in one room!

    Hi Listeners! In our anniversary episode of the Warships Podcast KamiSamurai and Kelorn got the opportunity to travel to Wargaming Headquarters North America for a special visit to see what awesome things Wargaming has been doing with World of Warships. (Regretfully Vanessaira just recently had surgery to remove her gallbladder and could attend :/ but joined in online, Sorry) The crew got to do some amazing things including visiting the USS Hornet while there in San Francisco. Trevzor joins the cast for this episode and the appearance of the infamous TorPillow was once again, a great topic of discussion.

    Getting into show topics, Kelorn asks Trevzor about some of the new content we have been seeing including Operations Dynamo. Trevzor talks about the excitement behind it as well as the thirst for new content from a community that is always looking for more from Wargaming. Kelorn then asks Trevzor about the Super Testing program and what that entails per se. Trevzor breaks down what Super Testers do and how they impact and help shape Wargaming products. KamiSamurai also took the opportunity to talk about his experience while being a Super Tester and recall some of the good and bad times from program. While moving to a similar subject Trevzor then talks about Community Contributors and contrast the differences between the two programs. Hopefully clearing up some questions that many people often have when comparing the two groups.

    Continuing with show topics, Trevzor is asked about this recent trip to the Let's Battle Tour that was held up in Minnesota. Trevzor talks about challenges of holding an event like this, but wanted to stress how much he really enjoyed it. Kelorn is excited for he will be attending the next event being held at the USS Lexington down at Corpus Christi, TX. If you are able to attend a Let's Battle Tour event, please do.

    Wrapping up this episode, the cast host a questions and answers session for Trevzor that our listeners submitted. We want to thank everyone for listening and supporting the game, community, and the show for the last year. Here is to looking forward to many more anniversaries to come!

    Episode 45: Eurobeat tells us how to Torpedo beat and the Final Version of USS Enterprise is ready!

    Greetings listeners! In this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast, we crank up our epic sounds systems to full, as we jam to the likes of Yuro'Beat! Famous YouTuber and comedic World of Warships entertainer. Kelorn interviews Yuro beginning with how he got his start into creating his totally awesome YouTube content, and his love for the anime series Initial D. The cast continues the interview talking about cars, music, and how Yuro has almost single handedly been reviving the Eurobeat music genre. We bring up some differences between the SEA and NA servers and the communications barriers that exist, as well as talking about how communications effect things like Ranked game play. The cast also inquires about the importance of content like that of ARP and High School Fleet, and what that means to the SEA region for its player base.

    While getting into the heart of our show topics we quickly ask Yuro for his picks for the upcoming Ranked Season. He breaks down what he might use and talks about his outlook of this next season and Ranked in general. We discuss the HIJMS Kaga and USS Enterprise (CV6), as the new carriers on the block, the game play that these carriers bring, and impact they have been having on the game. The cast also gets into all the changes that Enterprise has received and what this ship is going to look like in its final form.

    Continuing on the topic of Enterprise, the cast brings up the prospects of competitive play in places like Supremacy League. How might she fare and will teams use this ship? Yuro speculates on KMS Graf Zeppelin another carrier that will most likely join the Tier 8 line up Soon™, as well as speculation on the High School Fleet Event and when that might hit the NA servers. The cast talks about HSF Harekaze. A Tier 8 destroyer which is an incredibly fun ship play and is one that brings a great set of options to Tier 8 destroyer gameplay.

    We round out the show talking about changes to this upcoming Ranked Season. Changes have been made in the rewards per rank, and the cast discusses the likes and dislikes of the system. Yuro proposes an awesome idea to change up the rewards a bit and we agree that the developers should take note. :smile: Thank you everyone for listening and see you next time!

    Episode 44: TX141 tells us how and why he Ranked out in a Pensacola in Season 6

    For this weeks episode of the podcast we have a post Ranked Season 6 interview with TX141TX. Who did an amazing YouTube video of himself grinding out the entire Ranked Season in none other then the USS Pensacola. A ship which many consider is horrible and is vastly unpopular. The video showcases highlights from each match where he gained a Rank Star, parring it up with an awesome set of music along the way. Check out his video if you have not already, as it is a great inspirational and well crafted YouTube piece in of itself.

    After the interview we discuss the merits and challenge our line of thinking with ships that we often dismiss and overlook. We bring up some examples form each caster as the crew goes through what strengths that ship might be able to bring to this coming Ranked Season, and from that. The cast tries to speculate and formulate potential scenarios to maximize those strengths like TX141 did.

    Thank you everyone for listening!!! Stay tuned in with your best sound system as we have more guest torpedo beating their way to the show...

    Episode 42: Enterprise, High School Fleet, and ... Zoup?!?

    Hi Listeners! For Episode 42 of the Warships Podcast we have NoZoup returning for his 3rd stint on the show to talk about the many new surprises that has recently hit the World of Warships. Kelorn checks up on fellow Community Contributor Zoup and how he has been doing recently with his YouTube channel. Congratulations on 10k subscriptions Zoup, as that is an incredible milestone! The cast discusses one of his recent videos, a satire on the destroyer class in the game. Which is brilliant, well done, and put together. Kelorn also takes a moment to make a quick comment about the show host's formation of a new Clan/Fleet, (-I-) Impact. Headed up by KamiSamurai himself. We chose to leave OPG (OverPowereredGaming) on amicable terms, to set out on a new course for ourselves and our fleet.

    We get into the main body of show topics with the news and testing of several new ship. As of the day of this shows recording. All four of the show's members and guest, as well as other NA Community Contributors, have the opportunity to now test USS Enterprise, HMS Gallant, HSF Graf Spee, and HSF Harekaze. We talk about each of these ships going over what our initial impressions are for the new ships. Please keep in mind that any stats, abilities, and issues with these ships are subject to change as they are in testing and are considered a work in progress.

    We start with the Enterprise and break down the play style and our thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses so far. Discussing potential for Ranked and Competitive play and overall viability that this ship brings. We do the same for Gallant focusing on what the ships play style is and how it is possibly a meta changer. The implications for Ranked play could be massive and is this possibly a sign of things to come with the future Royal Navy Destroyer line???

    Along the lines of destroyers we talk about the introduction of two new ships coming to the game. The collaboration with the High School Fleet anime show has brought about two of the shows star ships. HSF Harekaze and HSF Graf Spee. The Graf Spee is mostly a mirror of the existing in game counterpart however Harekaze is unique Tier 8 fictional Kagero class, in that she has the ability to upgrade her hull and guns in game similarly as to how she did in several episode of the anime show. This gives players many options and the cast discusses this fun ship and how great of a hybrid ship she can be. Kelorn, Kami, and Zoup speculate on how these ships might be obtained and a very interesting idea is brought up on how they could be obtained that we really hope Wargaming is working on and/or considering close as these are fantastic ideas.

    We close out the podcast with a discussion on the newly release/revealed images and line up of Royal Navy Battleships. The cast talks about the ships seen so far. HMS Conqueror the Tier 10, HMS Lion Tier 9, HMS King George the 5th and HMS Nelson which tiers are still ambiguous at the moment of this podcast. Going over some of the information known to us we talk about gun battery potential, speed, armor, and other points of interest to these ships, and how they might fare to their contemporaries.

    Thank you all for listening and supporting us! See you next cast!!!

    Episode 39: New Kidd on the Block: USS Kidd and DeGrasse First Impressions (WiP)

    Hi listeners! In this weeks episode of the Warships Podcast we discuss an assortment of new premium ships coming to the game in the near future. Breaking down ships that we are currently testing and reviewing, as well as a bit of speculation on three ships that will hopefully make there appearance soon in game.

    Getting into our show discussion we start off with USS Kidd, a Fletcher class Destroyer that has been slotted at Tier 8 instead of 9. The reasoning of this is that it has one less torpedo rack, trading torpedoes for improved anti aircraft capabilities. We discuss at length our current experiences with the ship and give our thoughts on how it could be improved as well as its current standing in the random meta and possibilities for competitive play. The next ship we are testing is the French Cruiser DeGrasse. A solid cruiser that each cast member believes is a solid premium that we feel, is ready to ship to the public right now. We talk about its strengths and weaknesses and talk about French Cruiser play in general.

    Moving on from the current premium ships that we are testing, the cast gets into the big and highly anticipated ships, and by big ships, we really mean ENTERPRISE! We talk about the Big E and carrier game play, matchmaking, and how even non CV players will be getting this ship just based on the fact that its the Enterprise. The cast also talks about Admiral Markarov which is the Nurnberg but as it was when sold to the Russians and HMS Gallant is a Royal Navy Destroyer. Which is a ship featured in an upcoming movie about the massive evacuation at Dunkirk. We discuss these ships and move onto our final topic for the show.

    The Sink the Bismarck campaign discussion rounds out the podcast with the sale of HMS Hood which is now available via a staggered bundle system. Much like how Graf Spee was handled, players who were familiar with that will understand this system and campaign.

The 100 dollar bundle is brought up and debated as we go over the pluses and minuses for making such a purchase, and break down what the bundle contains.
