War Child Armistice 2018 – the Results

Source: WoT portal

On November 1918, the guns went silent. One hundred years later, you were pretty vocal in your support to War Child!

Our partnership with this charity is an absolute success, and we have to thank each and every one of you commanders because you made it happen. 18,643 players have supported War Child through bundle purchases!

That’s no less than 153,517 USD for the organisation, which will directly receive all the collected funds.

With this amount, War Child will be able to help 1290 children in areas affected by conflict by keeping them safe, helping them to learn and overcome their horrifying experiences, as well as equipping them with new skills for a brighter future.

Since this cause is extremely important, we highly encourage you to extend your support to War Child with direct donations.

DONATE

In the meantime, you can be proud, commanders. This operation is the biggest Armistice Campaign in World of Tanks history!

Total War: Arena to Shut Down in February 2019.

Source: TWA Portal

It is my unfortunate responsibility to inform you that Total War: ARENA will cease live operations in February 2019.

ARENA has been on a long journey, and we are thankful to everyone who joined us. We have learned so much during the development of ARENA and we have grown incredibly close with the community and involved you deeply into our development process. It has been an absolute privilege to work with you all on this project, but unfortunately the results of ARENA Open Beta Test did not meet all our expectations.

I would like to take a moment to thank the ARENA Team, who have poured their heart and soul into this game’s development and are just as disappointed by this as you.

For those of you wondering about the team, they will all continue working on Total War, sharing their experience and learnings from ARENA. ARENA’s technological advancements will continue to be part of Total War development going forward.

To you, the players and community, I have been inspired by your passion, your commitment and your continued valuable insight. Your input and encouragement have been instrumental to the game’s development. I cannot emphasize enough how much we have enjoyed working and playing with you all, and I know that we will greatly miss speaking with you online, debating your feedback, and fighting alongside you on the battlefield.

As a thank you for playing ARENA the team of Creative Assembly is offering a free piece of Total War content to all players of ARENA on the Wargaming Game Center. You can choose one of these 4 pieces of Total War content:

  • Total War: MEDIEVAL II – Definitive Edition
  • Hannibal at the Gates (Total War: ROME II DLC)
  • Age of Charlemagne (Total War: ATTILA DLC)
  • Grim and the Grave (Total War: WARHAMMER DLC)

To claim this offer, please look at the in-game news (live now) or check out the FAQ below.


Additionally, Wargaming asked us to share this message to all players:

“Alongside this, Wargaming invites the players to continue or try out World of Tanks, World of Warships, or World of Warplanes and is offering a gift: 30 days of Premium Account time common for all three games provided you played 100 or more battles in Total War: ARENA during the Open Beta (launched on February 22, 2018). To receive your Premium time, you need to log in any of the “World of…” trilogy PC games.

If you’ve spent money in Premium Shop during the Closed Beta or the Open Beta, or bought a starter pack before the Closed Beta started, and have unspent Gold and/or Premium time on your account as of November 22, 2018, you are entitled to receive the equivalent amount of your remaining Gold and Premium time in World of Tanks, World of Warplanes, or World of Warships (at a 1:1 exchange rate). In addition, all TWA Premium Shop purchases made from August 22, 2018 to November 22, 2018 will be fully reimbursed to you in equivalent amounts of World of Tanks and World of Warplanes Gold, or World of Warships Doubloons. To choose in which game you want to receive the gifts visit this page.

Please take note:

  • After you receive Gold and Premium time in another Wargaming title of your choice, the remaining amounts will still be available to you in Total War: ARENA, and you’ll be able to make good use of them until the game servers shut down;
  • You may choose a game to receive your gift in until December 22, 2018. If you don’t make your choice before then, your Gold and Premium time shall appear in the title where you’ve played the most battles. If you haven’t yet played any of the “World of…” trilogy games, your Gold and Premium time shall appear in World of Tanks;
  • Premium time starts ticking immediately after it’s remitted to a “World of…” title if you played it before; if you haven’t, your Premium time will begin the day you first launch the game;
  • Your Gold and Premium time will appear in the title of your choice within a day after you take your decision.”

Real-money purchasing and registration of new accounts will be disabled immediately following this announcement, though the existing players will be able to play and spend the Gold they already have. The Total War: ARENA servers will shut down completely at 10:00 GMT on February 22, 2019. Today’s patch, the final one we’ll be deploying, has introduced contingencies to ensure that you will continue to find matches, even in the event of low player population. Please see the FAQ for more details, and we’ll be active in the comments too to answer your questions.


I look forward to all of you sharing your memories of the epic battles we’ve had together over the last few years.

Thank you for everything.

Overwolf causing FPS to drop

Source

„The problem
 
We’ve found out that popular TeamSpeak plugin “Overwolf” does 3 bad things to our players:
 
1.    It installs the mod to WoWS without asking the player;
2.    It causes FPS drops
3.    It gathers the data on in-game events, reads python.log, records a lot of things (damage dealt, damage done, ribbons, battle participants data) and puts it to owevent.log

Dear players! It has come to our attention that using Overwolf (a TeamSpeak plug-in) with World of Warships causes the following issues:
 
1.    During the installation Overwolf modifies World of Warships game client without asking for confirmation. It puts a mod into D:\Games\World_of_Warships_RU\res_mods\0.7.10.1\PNFMods\owplugin folder.
2.    This mod actively logs your game data while you play: it reads python.log, damage dealt and taken, ribbons, frags, list of battle participants. This information seems to be recorded to owevent.log file.
3.    While doing so, the mod seems to decrease game performance. While we did not have time to test all configurations yet (as we wanted to share the information ASAP), we saw the decrease from 75 to 48-56 FPS on our i7-8700K / GTX1080Ti test machines, caused exactly by this mod activity.
4.    We also ask you to pay attention to the following facts: 
a.    If owplugin folder with the mod is deleted from World of Warships game files, Overwolf re-installs it when launched;
b.    If Overwolf is uninstalled normally, the mod remains installed.
 
With that in mind, we recommend the following:
 
1.    If you have Overwolf, you can check the difference in game performance yourself. To do it, launch the game from Wargaming.net Game Center or Legacy Launcher in safe mode. Safe mode basically disables res_mods modifications, including the one installed by Overwolf.
2.    If you want to stop using Overwolf, you will need to uninstall it AND manually delete the World of Warships mod. To do the latter: 
a.    Find owplugin folder according to the path above;
b.    If you’re not sure or not experienced enough just clear the whole res_mods folder. The downside is that you will have to re-install any mods you’ve been using.
3.    Always read EULA of all products you use. We’re not responsible for what and how 3rd party applications do.

If we get any new information on this matter, we will let you know ASAP.

Thank you for your attention!”
