Websites

http://www.wowstactic.tk/ - Stronk tektiks site for Stronk ships

http://shipcomrade.com/ - General Info, and a very good devtracker. Most of the dev posts are in russian but it's worth google translating them.

http://gamemodels3d.com/worldofwarships/ - Model and ship stat viewer for Warships. You need to pay $3 or so to get access to the full tiers but it's worth it IMO. The guy has done a lot of work mining out resources to tell us things that WG doesn't.

http://warships.today/ - Stats metric site with a good interface and an in-development numeric rating.

Youtube Channels

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoxeurec0DCSqGpCm7pDUKg - DeleRT83: Good all rounder with some excellent advanced guides. Also a Labs contributor.

https://www.youtube.com/user/ichasegaming - iChase: Excellent guides for most classes, particularly Battleships and Cruisers IMO. CAVEAT: iChase's older content is pretty solid. However his more recent "testing" videos are pretty disconnected from reality. Approach with caution.

https://www.youtube.com/user/BohemianEagle - Jingles: Has lots of good beginner guides, although like Tanks his advanced play is lacking. Also insanely entertaining and frequently shows unicum replays.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLOQoJ6G4D04d05fxjfPHPQ - Aerroon: Excellent carrier player to learn from and also is very good at Battleship play too.

https://www.youtube.com/user/ExESGO/featured - ExESGO: General video guides and info. Also posts on WoTLabs so support him where you can.

Streams

http://www.twitch.tv/aerroon/profile - Aerroon: As above

http://www.twitch.tv/ichasegaming/profile - iChase: As above, and he usually plays with some of the best players on NA too, so you get lots of top notch teamwork.

 http://www.twitch.tv/braincage - Good BB player and is interactive with the chat. Unfortunately he plays copyrighted music the whole time so the past broadcasts get muted.

www.twitch.tv/delert83 - Daily streams of the above youtuber.

http://www.twitch.tv/mejash good NA streamer who also interacts with chat a lot

Useful Snippets

If you want to use no Torrent to download, then you can also manually enable the download via HTTP:

Go to the WoW's folder -> Open the file "WOWsLauncher.cfg" -> Change the line "<launcher_transport> 3 </ launcher_transport>" to "<launcher_transport> 2 </ launcher_transport>". - Start> Launcher -> Done!

probably should have posted this sooner, but the AA mechanics thread is wrong, and unfortunately I can't cite sources easily as the conversations occurred in NDA covered channels.  some parts are right, but the idea of DPS depleting plane HP is wrong.  the plane "HP" is simply a "toughness" stat, and each aura rolls against a squad once per second, with the chance to shoot down a plane being (dps with modifiers) / (plane hp value).  modifiers being the 1.5x for ctrl clicking a squad, a 6x bonus to long range AA (this no longer counts the 3" 's on Des Moines), and how many AA mounts are functioning (destroyed mounts = less DPS).

 

 

Post any more you're aware of below and I'll add them.

Upboats!

Shouldn't you link in some useful threads from WoWs forums like the one where damage threshold is explained? IIRC it's called "how to deal damage in WoWs". Also... http://i.imgur.com/3bGCvAi.jpg :QQ:

Can we get Braincage ( http://www.twitch.tv/braincage ) on that streaming list? His understanding of the game is pretty top notch, playing BBs like a boss at the moment, very interactive with chat and answering questions all the time.

I watched one of his highlights and Reedy05 was sperging in chat. Added just because of that (also because gud).

Delert83 does almost daily streams also www.twitch.tv/delert83. Nice gameplay and interaction. Manages around 70% solo gameplay and carries the shit out of teams imo.

Here's the NA versions of the spotting and damage mechanics.
wows-vision-mechanics-explained

dealing-damage-in-wows

Even though they're mostly overlap of what that EU ST'er did, a different way of showing may help.

I'll go digging thru the NA guides and see what I can find.

Also, I heard mention of reedy rage, link to that stream plz! :D

That dealing damage one is something I end up linking people to a lot, it seems to have a better layout and more information than the EU post.

I am a decent allrounder, that is true, but a horrible carrier captain ;) Even my viewers know that. But the joking asside, from next week onwards I will make a fixed schedule on my stream and revise my schedule for youtube. I will stream most of the days and make sure that there are at least 4 videos a week on youtube with highlevel content in them ;)

I notice there's a rather impressive array of scope mods available. Can anyone care to comment on which, if any, are worth using. Some of them look incredibly confusing...

If you don't need fancy stuff go vanilla, if you need a longer horizontal scale go for one which is the most vanilla. There is no need for more i feel. Maybe you try aslains modpack, there are some very basic sight mods

This, indeed, is what I did. The array of scopes was rather dizzying so I just went with one that provided only a little more info...
