Clan Battlezzz

I couldn't even drum up the motivation to do Clan Battles today. I might just be growing out of it. It's actually more fun for me at tier 8 than tier 10, so it's not the current season that's bothering me, necessarily. Since there's nothing to add there I'll leave it...

In No Shape for PvP

Sundays, I don't even know anymore. I had to skip Clan Battles again. This time it was a sneezing fit that lasted for about three hours. I'm not entirely sure I'm past it yet, but either way I'm down for the count. I'm in no shape for any kind of PvP today.

Clan Battles 9/14

It went well enough, though I was out for the last two matches getting dinner. I don't remember if we were up or down on wins overall, but it was definitely 1 or 2 games in either direction. I vaguely remember having a couple of games worth recording before 11.9, so...

Another Skip

I planned to come in later than normal for Clan Battles, but I just don't have the energy for pvp today. I'll see how I'm feeling on Wednesday, but right now I'm trying to get 'real life' affairs in order and there are only a few things I can do to balance that kind...

First Runs 11.8

I wound up skipping clan battles today, for a variety of reasons, but I did get to test out the updated operations this afternoon. Finally. Finally, I've got some incentive to play the game outside of clan battles. I even got a few replays worth recording toward the...

Last Run 11.7

I had one last run in the old style of operations in Maya earlier today. They're taking away the 5 star format starting tomorrow so I wanted to get one last run in. It went well enough so I recorded it afterward, too. I won't spend too much time on it tomorrow but I...

Capturing Clan Battles

by | Sep 1, 2021 | OBS, WoWs

We’ll see how things turn out tonight. Last Sunday we tried swapping out the Weser for the Loewenhardt but there’s just too big a difference between these two CVs. Neither myself or our other CV main could really get her working. She’s a fine ship, but at the end of the day you just can’t rely on AP rockets to carry an entire playstyle. Clan Battles is too rigid for that and most team comps are at least a little geared toward defending against CVs, so that makes matters even worse.

Fortunately, Last Sunday was really fun in spite of the first few games. I got to go back to playing a DD, which is my second favorite playstyle in the game after brawling. Things were about as far from organized as you can get, but it was still fun. At some point I really need to slap some of my footage together and make a skit or something. I’m just not thrilled with the recording quality OBS is giving me. I don’t know how much more I have to fiddle with the settings to reliably get above 30fps on the videos, but it probably won’t be any time soon. It’s partially my own fault for not staying on top of apps like these throughout the 2010s. I just never cared to do any serious recording until more recently.

I’ll fiddle around with the settings today, both in-game and in OBS Studio and see if I can’t inch a bit closer. Hopefully tonight’s Clan Battles session is as interesting as last week’s. I might also look into some alternative recording software tomorrow, just to see if there’s anything out there that’s a better fit.

2023 ended weirdly abruptly for me, but I got the shot in the arm I needed in order to hit the ground running in 2024. This year's going to be absolutely crazy, but for me personally, I feel my worst years are finally behind me. I'm ready to stop drowning in a sea of...
