We check out 0.5.6 and discuss the changes that it brings to the game. The Minimap, end score screen, and Okinawa are discussed in detail. I’m curious to hear what others think about the Minimap changes, I’d love to see some adjustments to the proposed system. Hope you enjoy the and have a wonderful day!

  1. Seconded about switching the numbers off. The thing I’d really like to see
    would be smoke perimeters marked (preferrably in game rather than on the
    minimap).

  2. Cameron Andrewes

    nice new minimap options. can the map below scaled up further? I play on a
    4k monitor

  3. Yep, agree, numbers on the minimap need to be optional. Perhaps they could
    do a more hardcore version of all the range ring options on the zoom out
    map (‘M’) and leave the main minimap a bit simpler. How persistent are the
    minimap settings? I would, for example, switch on secondary ranges in BBs,
    turn off AA range rings in DDs, etcetera. Will each ship save it’s own
    minimap settings or is it account-wide? Notwithstanding my criticisms, it’s
    great that WoWs is so keen to source improvements to it’s game from
    modders.

    I do like the new mini map….Woots

  5. Very exciting Notser !! cheers from indonesia !!!

  6. THESE are good changed to the minimap!

  7. End score screen is great. Finally! Okinawa looks good. I´d say that the
    first team who capture A could win the game. The other cap points are too
    wide open. And on the minimap it is good to see my detection range. Really
    helpfull. Luckily the other circles have the option to switch off. 🙂 P.S.:
    SMS Viribus Unitis was a ship in the Austro-Hungarian navy, not in the
    German. Its a slight difference. :P

  8. Thanks great info …

  9. Jason-John Atwood

    I like the new layout for the mini map. I agree that the distance numbers
    should be removable and add no real help unless you are very new to the
    game. I love that the damage is now shown without mods, and that its broken
    down into what you did to whom, and what was done to you. We can finally
    put to rest the whole fire is OP arguments.

  10. I agree those numbers obstruct the minimap. The range circles are a bit too
    much but necessary. I can see the numbers overlapping destroyers and
    getting me killed already

  11. James Bigglesworth

    Really liked the mini map Noster, when I tested it out.
    I agree with you about the dead ship colour and the numbers on the mini map
    making it too busy.
    I would also like the scale on the dynamic sight to be adjustable.

  12. Brian Lock (神通)

    So the torpedo nerf WG saI’d when 0.5.5 released is not comming?

  13. Sweet changes.

  14. Notser – if you can convince them to permit us to toggle numbers, see if
    you can convince them to allow us to change the circle colors!

  15. How about we get some Kill assist points

  16. I wanna be the Wargaming employee who gets paid to watch Youtu… collect
    community feedback

  17. Calle Söderberg

    Does the minimap scale any larger now? When running 1440p it tends to be a
    bit smallish.

    I wish WG would get around to redesigning the loading screen with the names
    of the players and their ships. Having one where half the names get cut off
    is a bit silly to be honest. They could design it any way they want and the
    way it cut off the names of the ships was laughable. Since then, WG of
    course remedied it by introducing shortened names (i.e. listing the Dmitri
    Donskoi as “D Donskoi”), but that’s such a crappy solution. If it’s so that
    the screen should work for players running the game at 800×600 or
    something, then they need to introduce an alternative screen for us playing
    on gear from this century.

  18. About time they upgraded the end screen. I never understood why they didnt
    have that info. They had it in tanks , I figured it would be in launch for
    ships.

  19. Alt mode gives you vital ship info. Losing that is worse than having
    minimap clutter

  20. as a DD player am still waiting for WG to implement smoke limit indicator
    to help safe maneuvring inside smoke. anyhow minimap changes are very good,
    but yes those numbers are pretty harassing

  21. It shows your detection ring! Now we can verify when detection is buggy.

  22. I would like to see as much information on my team’s performance as well.

  23. on the detailed report now it tells you how many shells you landed on each
    ship. i didn’t see that here is it changed? it’s not a big deal at all, but
    i liked it. thanks for the videos i always look forward to them but don’t
    get to watch them till at least 8 hours old as i’m in australia. thanks
    again. vincent

  24. Love the after battle screen now with all that detailed info. Min map
    changes are good, at least you can turn stuff off you dont want.

  25. Really like what they’ve done with the mini-map and especially the post
    battle screen. You make an excellent point about the numbers, it would be
    nice to turn them off. However, I don’t think it will bother me that much
    because I probably will without the AA ranges unless I’m escorting a ship
    in a US cruiser.

  26. The post battle data is probably one of the best things WG ever did for
    this game. Kudos to them for that.

    As far as the minimap is concerned, it’s nice that it can give so much info
    and that most of it is selectable, but I agree the numbers are superfluous.
    Hope they add an option for that later.

  27. Nice patch this time!! Would like a LARGER minimap too….

  28. Would like to see some recognition given to a player who has assisted in
    the sinking of a ship. Oh, and perhaps recognition that a player is the
    last one left standing on his team when the game ends..While I’m
    ranting..get rid of that bloody annoying sound(or no sound) when you take
    major damage! God, I hate that…most off putting. But, all in all, I like
    the changes that are coming, and ,like Notser, would like an option to turn
    numbers off

  29. Greg Wooldridge

    I like the new additions to the mini map, and the Okinawa map looks great.
    But, I would rather them work on getting other ship lines out there, such
    as the German BB’s and DD’s, and the British line at least starting would
    be nice.

    Love the vids Notser, keep up the good work!

  30. Habitual Offender

    Changes look cool. And I do agree that we need to be able to turn off the
    numbers. But over all seems like good additions.

  31. How bout an option to move the grid references to the top and left side of
    the map

  32. As long as you can pick which “ranges” you have on the minimap, I like the
    change.

  33. Any chance that you can show of all the current and upcoming permanent
    skins?

  34. I really like these changes. was looking forward to a display of the
    overall damage dealt without using a mod. and the visibility lines/circles
    are great as well! :D

  35. Javier Rodríguez

    6:35 The “SMS” letters were also used by the KuK Kriegsmarine; the “Viribus
    Unitis” was a WW1 austro-hungarian dreadnought

  36. Hi Notser, another great vid. I feel exactly the same regarding the
    minimap: the circles are just enough, no need to display the numbers.
    The future score screen is just gorgeous.
    Thanks for sharing!

  37. Wait the fubuki premium cammo is the same as the iwaki alpha, that’s not
    cool. the iwaki alpha was the first ship in the game to have cammo and i
    think it deserves to have a unique skin.

  38. тwιlιgнт ѕcι-ғυrry

    Wow, they accepted the mini map mod from the Aslains ( is that what it
    called? ) Anyway, how do you play these patch preview?

  39. notser it seems that the numbers are displayed only when you have
    alternative interface on

  40. no mention about furutaka’s c hull and hipper’s long awaited atlantic hull?
    shame on you notser

  41. The “rank” on the Team Score screen? That’s a bit odd, if it’s what I think
    it is.
    I’d rather see people’s Reputation scores. The points they’ve accrued for
    Compliments & Complaints for their team play.
    At the moment, I think that Rep score is only shown as a tiny little
    superscript number in your own Summary screen.

  42. Im having REALLY big problems trying to even login to the test server any
    help?

  43. Like the minimap adds, almost as good as the mods out there which I prefer
    not to install. Need to fix the color/look of ‘last known poz’ icon, like
    to know the ship type (N.Carolina, Myoko,…) and really – why are the grid
    letters still on the right? Grid letters need to be on left for eyes to see
    quickly.

  44. this looks promising. When in the release date? I agree on the numbers, it
    should be optional.

  45. i give the post battle results a big thumbs up, displaying rank is
    fantastic, the detailed report is just grate! the only thing missing imo is
    the total damage displayed in team score.

  46. Ajava-Riddhi Diskul

    Ditto with the numbers, rings look useful but numbers are cluttering up the
    map

  47. As usual I agree with you. I would want to have the distance option as well
    on the minimap but I would want to be able to select each number in the
    same way the rings can be chosen individually.
    I like the after battle screens. Good job on that. Still no in game damage
    counter??? hmmm shame.
    One thing I want is a way of selecting a ship to warn them of torps
    automatically the same as the defend or focus features. Control F2
    perhaps.. auto “team mate has sent torps too close” “friendly torps may hit
    you” audio.

  48. TheCaptainSocks

    Excellent video, so excited for these changes!

  49. Not a fan of the rotating minimap, other than that I´m very happy with it

  50. DID THEY AT LEAST GIVE US AN OPTION TO STOP THE LOUD, PAINFUL ‘RINGING IN
    THE EARS’ MAJOR DAMAGE SOUND
    EFFECT?????????????????????????????????????????????????

    I know they will ruin all sorts of great aspects of WoWS I enjoyed with
    this patch, they do it so often I think Wargaming hates me personally, but
    why do they hate everyone with TINNITUS?

    I really try to enjoy WoWS, but Wargaming makes is so hard to do.

  51. I see Wargaming has already made the mini map a confusing jumble of
    uselessness. If you can’t be bothered to know your detection ranges, you
    deserve to lose frequently.

    I think the multiple range rings are just stupid, and it annoys me I won’t
    be able to turn them all off, or that it will display my torpedo range at
    all times.

    WOWS STOP MAKING THE GAME SUCK MORE ALL THE TIME!

  52. The numbers are only there when the alternative battle interface mode is
    on. If you have it set to off by default there are no numbers there, and
    they will only show up when you hit alt.

    Another point on the Credits and XP tab, is you can expand each of those
    items to see what bonuses you have and how the bonuses add up. It’s really
    nice.

  53. I dont like this its just more things DD’s can abuse

  54. The mini map change are good in theory but horrible in its execution. They
    should make each ring a bright distinct color.

  55. what about ships balance ?

  56. So far, I am a huge fan of this new patch. Thanks For uploading this!

  57. Well, it seems to be basically the implementation of various mods that are
    in widespread use, but okay.

    The less mods I have to use, the better and the new score screen is really
    nice. It was about time to get something like this.

  58. George Washington

    Tell us about the Nc,Iowa,Montana accurasy buffs!!

  59. Hay Notser. I love the new results screen. its so much clearer.

    Minimap changes… well being honest i hadnt even noticed it also included
    the distances as well but i have to agree they should be turn ofable.

    The german line changes have all been positive but i still can’t get use to
    the Yorck. The AA buffs most of them received are superb… i’ve never shot
    down so many planes before. 15 alone, just by the Konisburg in one
    match…. i killed more planes than our carrier did in that match… lol

    i also ditched hydro for added AA firepower in the Hipper and she shredded
    everything that attempted to get remotely close.

    So for me its been all positive so far.

    Trying out the Russian tiers 6-10 tomorrow.

  60. Like this new update! With this people will constantly watch the minimap
    and understand the situation better as well as supporting the flank where
    needed.

  61. I think WG is still aiming at newbie captains, and trying to make their
    lives easier. I think that is a pity. New players should go through the
    learning curve finding things out themselves by making mistakes or watching
    vids like Notsers. The more WG puts in it to ´guide´ the more arcadish the
    game becomes. Like the mountain icon. Terrible. Leave it up to the player
    to learn when to shoot over the mountain. Its almost an aim assist…. But
    WG want the noobs to stay. So we can expect more warnings to come. Like a
    loud sound when a bb goes in a straight line for too long…

  62. They have made so many changes but have not enabled replays for everyone
    from the start, that you have to do yourself! Am I the only one who finds
    that weird?

  63. As for the Minimap changes all and all i like them. But I agree I want to
    turn off the numbers i see no point in them honestly. The other thing I
    would love to see is the ability to set this for each ship and have it
    save. Like I could care less about AA and secondary for DD’s, no use for me
    at all. I could care less about secondaries for cruisers etc. If we could
    save a preset for each ship or even just each class of ship that would be
    really nice.

  64. Hey Noter – can you tell me how you get seconds and range next to your aim
    rectal? Been looking for it for ages! :)

  65. Dislike the clutter — Being Red Green Colour blind it was hard enough to
    see the red enemy ships. Now they have added another layer over top — puts
    the more than 10% of the population that are colour blind at a real
    disadvantage .. and on that note does anyone know if there is a mod that
    will change the enemy colour to say — yellow?

    Thanks and great job as always.

    ST

  66. Very useful. Thank you

  67. i think everybody know that holding right mouse button hold your turret

  68. can you show the furutaka hull?

  69. Fantastic video, Noster. TY.

  70. Where can you buy permanent camo?

  71. The minimap numbers are linked to the alternative mode.
    I have it off so I only see them when I press the “Alt” key.

  72. Finally Mod players don’t have more info then Vanilla gamer’s like
    myself,And I’m a not so regular player so don’t memorize the info’s of
    every ship it’s just their for me, I’m very happy with the changes 😀 !

  73. Another good video, Notser. I agree with you about the numbers on the
    minimap. No need for them when you already have the rings.

  74. Why dont they stop making patches , and actually start expanding the game
    with more ships and countries ………..Dont even know why China is in
    there , and not a big British line …………we all know that China has
    always been a big naval power , and the British are a land based power
    …………..and Poland ? REALLY !!???? …..just sayin .

  75. Great video as always. We need to figure out a way to get Jingles to notice
    you. NA needs a version of like Jingles or Quickybaby for Warships and I
    think it should be you. For like contests and stuff, and also letting them
    know the feedback from the NA servers. We may not play as much as the
    Russians but I am sure we spend a lot of money on the game.

  76. Alas, still no German BBs.

  77. Tanker Dude (Tank3rDude)

    I REALLY, REALLY ,REALLY like the new after battle statistics they added. I
    hated not being able to look and see how much damage I did to a particular
    ship. You can also now see how many modules you knocked out on a ship, like
    the AA or secondary gun mounts.

  78. for minimap it would be great to have settings for each ship. When i play
    bb i would see my secondary range but when i play DD i don’t want see
    it….etc… In cruiser i will the AA range (ex for atlanta) but don’t want
    it for DD…

  79. Great video as always!! Its finally nice to see some needed UI changes
    especially the minimap.

    But are you gonna cover the rest of the changes in 0.5.6? especially the
    new maps and the new ship hulls like the much awaited Furutaka and Admiral
    Hipper C hull?

    Cheers and more great videos in the future!

  80. Andhika nur Aulia

    I thought you were going to play C hull taco. A Myoko is fine too tho. So
    the mods has pretty much gone official now, which is nice. I was wondering
    whether it gives you too much information but eh, whatever

    Your Japanesse pronounciation has been great lately. Now I’ll just wait for
    you derp yourself up :^)

  81. Ultimate Shifter

    any news about the buff accuracy in US Battleships Tier 8-10? I’ve read
    that in some Q&A in forum

  82. Tanker Dude (Tank3rDude)

    Thanks for the update Notser!!! Love the content, keep it coming! You ever
    try doing a live stream on twitch or anything? You have a good voice for
    it!

  83. nice work notser. i wonna ask you if you wonna make a video with the kongo.
    plz. love your work

  84. lol.. these islands are slightly changed islands that are west of
    okinawa… my mind got blown! i thought all of those maps are just random
    islands :d

  85. +Notser how do you play by yourself in a battle ???

  86. The Myoko camo is actually historical. It’s what she had irl

  87. and im here reinstalling the game 3rd time because of crashes and
    bugs…tried to select arp myoko in port…cradhed, blue screen, earlier,
    game wasnt loading…
    and i dont have bad specs!

  88. Richard Heijden

    Nice, First used the Mod that displayed this information. This mod isnt in
    Aslain pack anymore as far as i know.
    Gotten so used to this info that its hard to play whit out.
