    Breaking the waves

    It's in the Developers Corner under the "shortest faq's". It says that PS4 will start sometime after X-box. Moreover, look at how the X-box was announced just on the forums. There's no missing it, right? So why would they deviate from that? This doesn't even go into the pinned announcement and the redundant welcome message in Discord stating that the PS4 codes will be released sometime in August. I get it, people are excited, so am I (I'm a PS4 user myself). But in a very literal sense, people are over looking information or sections of information. Heck, I've seen people ask about PS4 codes within a half hour or so of each other in Discord, only to receive the same response. Where are the conflicting "back and forth" answers coming from?

    It's cold out there

    Nice! And thanks for sharing. 🙂 A lot to dissect in the pic, that's what I've been waiting for with regards to posting. I can't tell from the picture no matter how many times I look at it, if there's 2 life boats by turret 3 or not (not a big deal, just comparing). But you guys did a phenomenal job with the ship. As to the map/effects. Considering the ship is either starting to move or has just come to a stop (I can tell by the smoke stack and the wake), the wave effect on the bow looks beautiful. K, now here comes my tinfoil hat. Behind the island on the right side their looks to be either a cloud or possibly fog. I can't tell the distance nor elevation of that effect, but if it's a form of low level cloud (but not fog - but moving) or even fog itself (for those unfamiliar with weather effects in the World of Warships realm, look up cyclone), this would certainly add some dynamics to the game. Regardless, very nice screenshot and I look forward to it being released. o7 & BOOP

    Any News on PS4 Codes

    No news, official or otherwise. Don't know if it's Sony, WarGaming or both. Either way, it is what it is. We just have to keep being patient. It'll happen at some point. /keep_the_faith

    Favorite Ships/Battles

    I don't know, to each their own, but any time I see or hear anything about WW3 I am reminded of Albert Einstein's quote: "I know not with what weapons World War 3 will be fought, but World War 4 will be fought with sticks and stones".

    Favorite Ships/Battles

    Favorite ship would have to be the New Mexico. Reason being is that back during OBT, when it was just IJN and USN, everyone raved about the Fuso and how superior it was. I set out to prove them wrong and in the process, grew to love the N.M. Currently I have 1,502 games just in the New Mexico alone, had my first Solo Warrior and my first 200k game in her.

    Two questions for all of you

    For those that remember/used dial-up, nothing worse than hearing that modem dial then try to connect... The only thing that was worse was when the other line was when your modem couldn't establish a connection so it would try a secondary number, starting the process all over again... lol

    Two questions for all of you

    1) What was the first video game you ever played? Sub questions for fun can be, what were the circumstances around it, ie: was it with friends in an arcade? was it on a PC during school? 2) What was the first "online" video game you ever played? Same sub questions if you'd like. For me: 1) The first game for me was "Super Breakout" on the Atari 5200 back in 1983. lol Pops wanted to surprise my mom and I for Christmas that year and so he started saving. It took him the better portion of that year to afford it, looking at it now the Atari 5200 was $270, which is roughly $700 in today's dollars. What's funny is the other game he got was "Tetris". And to this day, him and I can recall the mornings so clearly where he wouldn't sleep, because he was playing Tetris... lol 2) My first online game was "Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6" circa 1998/99. Playing at a friend's house, we didn't have a PC nor an internet connection, he had a 56k dialup connection and to be honest, it was harder than all heck to snipe someone across that airport map, but it could be done. Sheesh, when our town got ISDN, it was friggin light speed on MSN's "The Zone" and our 300ms+ pings were a ground breaking 200ms. lol Ah, this should be interesting to see the generational differences here and not in a bad way. We all use this as a form of escape, entertainment, etc. So to find out what and when it started for people will be intriguing. For those older than me, Pong counts and if you were ever on Arpanet, you get brownie points. lol

    Best theme song to go to battle with?

    This is actually on my playlist. lol And, well, "This means war".

    Pimp that torpedo boat!

    lol Just posted about this in Discord and thank you for sharing this. Interesting to see that it appears that everything needs to be researched and not just the Hull before unlocking the next ship. Not to mention the layout of the research items ie: the Hull has to be unlocked before the Gun Fire Control System can be unlocked. Of course, everything is subject to change and I could be misinterpreting the pic altogether.

    First batch of codes has been distributed!

    If you're not on Discord, then I would suggest contacting @Philigula via pm here on the forums. He will most certainly be able to point you in the right direction. Hope this helps.

    First batch of codes has been distributed!

    Grats to everyone on X-Box who got chosen! For those wondering about PS4, I'd imagine sooner rather than later, but who knows. With regards to answering other peoples questions about Alpha or Beta, just remember, NDA will answer every question asked about the game and/or screenshots/videos. GL HF o7 Turn the Tide!

    Status update: start of code distribution

    @Soldier09V5 Hmm, ok. Figured I would have seen it or they would have posted it on the updated F.A.Q.. My bad thanks for the info

    Status update: start of code distribution

    To be honest, I don't recall them ever stating a hard date for the PS4 testing phase. They did state that "Playstation will start a bit later than X-box" (source) and they also stated that "Alpha would last 2 months, maybe more depending on how well it goes". (source - under Development section) After checking the Discord announcements and rereading the F.A.Q.'s, I don't think they have put a set date or even timeframe yet for PS4, or maybe they have. However, the links I posted is everything they have shared as far as I know.
