Thank you everyone for coming out to the event this past weekend. I know for at least me, this was a amazing close to the 2019-20 tour as my last event as a WG Staff.

As I mentioned on the ship, we will ensure you all receive your Player Gathering Patch by the end of the week.

Oooof.

I'm not from New Zealand :P I'm Australian/British. Fun fact is Australians hate being mistaken as New Zealanders, and New Zealanders hate being called Australians.

I'll be staying stateside, and remaining in Austin for the foreseeable future.

"You" as in the community, not you specifically, sorry :P

6 pages suggest otherwise ;)

Cool story, could use dragons.


Well Captains, we'll call that a day on this thread as I am on my last day with WG, thank you all for your kindness and support over the last (almost) two years.

I'll see you on the seas, once again.

Fem,

Yes for both of these.

I just checked, this work-around still works.

I have another position lined up for after my departure, but this is not the time nor place to announce it.

Not sure I'd be much help there.

We are still working on that ;) we haven't made any announcements yet.

*Helps you up* whats your question :P

Maybe in time I will rejoin the CC ranks, but I think I'd like to spend some time rekindling my love for the game as a regular player for a little and working on some other content goals.

Heyo!

Once again, I'd like to extend our apologies for thew downtime of the operations from the release of 0.9.1.

Just a follow up on some outstanding issues:

Raptor Rescue will be restored with update 0.9.2


Narai has an intended restore date of update 0.9.3


Restoration of other operations (cherry blossom, etc) has no date currently

7am sync calls. I am not a morning person.

If I asked, I’m sure the team would consider making me one again. I think I’d really like a break for a little while before diving in deep again :)

Nope! It was my decision to leave. The NA WoWS team is actually growing and my position will be listed and refilled after my leaving.

I definitely think I’ll try and attend a few this year as a personal trip.

Yes! That will be last event as a WoWS staff :) one last celebration.

Was never into pink as a kid but a dark purple always really appealed to me, that fact it’s both feminine and masculine at the same time.

Hmm, those months where I was the only community staff (Karma is a hybrid) for NA was definitely rough. There were days that I definitely wondered why I was putting myself through so much. In saying that, I never felt obligated. I love my job and the community, even when you were upset, I didn’t want to let our wonderful community go without any staff. Nowadays with the addition of Kalvothe and Hapa (and maybe more soon!) I feel my leaving will (hopefully) not leave the community up the creek. It’s time for me to do what’s best for me now :)

Since I am community staff, there isn’t too much in the game I’ve heavily impacted, so on an NA side of things what I am most proud of:

1 - the revival of...

Yes! I will still be allowed to attend events as any other player. I may attempt to make it out to some of the 2020 events for fun! My last official AAT event will be the Kidd!

Purple!

It will be the decision of whoever leads the NA CC next on whether my content makes the cut. I will probably wait awhile before considering applying.


1 - The change of the system of early releases, the rate of which patches are released, the global unification of a lot of things.
2 - That’s a tough one, there’s a lot that is just impractical to do. I think the biggest improvement we could make is how things are communicated.

3 - CVs

Well, when a mummy and daddy love each other very much *insert remainder of Cat in the Hat reference*

1 - I was never involved with the CV rework design or development. It had absolutely nothing to do with me joining or leaving.

2 - Ideally, yes. It will depend on my new position and what sort of time that will take up. Given that I will no longer be working on the game on a daily basis I feel like I’ll be more motivated to play in the evenings again which will allow me to stream.
3 - Getting to build and grow the community, and the friends I’ve made. I got to start a lot of initiatives that I dreamed of as a player, some of which will still be seen in the coming months.

I’ve seen it, but I’m not a super fan. It’s a solid franchise.

This would break my NDA obligations. Best answer I can give is soon.

Unlikely at the moment, PVE development isn’t ...

Heyo Captains,

Dusk must set on every dawn, and it is my time to sail off into the sunset.

I joined World of Warships NA in June 2018 and since then have thoroughly enjoyed my time supporting, growing, and celebrating with the NA Community. We've seen a lot of ups and downs the last 21 months and I wouldn't have changed a thing with you all. This is a decision I made separate from any interaction internally or externally from WG and the community. I still have positive and strong friendships with other Wargaming and World of Warships employees both locally and globally. My last day at Wargaming NA will be the 25th of February.

While I may be saying goodbye to my time at Wargaming as an employee, I'm excited to return to the player base as a fan of the game once more! I'll definitely still be around in various community avenues and on my personal stream. Given that it is my time to say goodbye, I'd like offer you all the chance to Ask ...

I can confirm, it is one or the other. Not both.

The support team should be able to verify the issue and explain what happened.

If there is in fact a bug/issue they will be able to work on this and refund the currency.

Fem,

I'd like to clarify a small point: "... which is causing instability in the client."

Since the release, players playing operations were crashing out of the client.

This is why we turned it off. Sorry if that was not clear - operations were literally unplayable due to this.

Please see my amended answer.

It literally says it on the PSA lol.

"With the release of 0.9.1 we have uncovered a technical issue with operations which is causing instability in the client."

I believe the scenario inclusion in this is was pre-decision to pull Narai for fixes. Given that you can complete this in randoms, I doubt we will make any changes to this at this time.

Fem,

Again, when something is concerning the game integrity and stability, regardless of what it is: PVE/PVP/Etc, we're going to pay it attention and get it fixed.

Hopefully I'll have good news on a timeline tomorrow.

Fem,

Given that the playing of operations is causing players to crash out of the client, leaving it as is would be worse for you as players.

Taking it down so we can fix it means that you won't crash.

Please keep an eye on my pinned topic for updates on the situations.

Fem,

Update 1:

We have heard from the development team that they will provide us an ETA for a fix and restore for the operations mode tomorrow.

Typically we don't announce whats happening in the patch prior to 24 hours before the patch, so the "late" notice was standard.

While yes, majority of the bugs are resolved in test, some bugs do sneak in with final release too - this is one of those cases. It was not intentional nor something we wanted to happen.

We don't like intentionally upsetting players who are already upset for another reason (Narai being fixed).


You called it that we'd have a technical bug?! Wow, you should come work for us ;)

We're hoping to have a resolution and a fix to this quickly and can turn operations back on ASAP.

Fem,

Please see:

Sure thing, hopefully I'll have more information in the next hour or so.

Technical issue, not intended. Currently operations are causing the client to crash which is in no-ones best interest.

Fem,

Heyo Players.

With the release of 0.9.1 we have uncovered a technical issue with operations which is causing instability in the client.

As such, we will be disabling operations until we can deploy a fix to resolve these technical issues and restore stability.

We apologise for this inconvenience - as more information becomes available we will update you all.


Update 1:

We have heard from the development team that they will provide us an ETA for a fix and restore for the operations mode tomorrow.


Update 2:

The Operations "Defense of Naval Station Newport", "Aegis" and "Killer Whale" are back up and running in-game.

The Operation "Raptor Rescue" has been temporarily removed from rotation due to technical issues and will return to the game with the next Update.

We apologize and thank you for your understandin...
