Default Does Anyone Else Here Play World of Warships?

Does anyone else here play World of Warships? I’ve been addicted to this thinking man’s first-person shooter for about a year. Sneaky types and adrenaline junkies (like me ) can have a great time challenging battleships with their paper-thin-skinned destroyers while more cautious types can enjoy the heavy armor and massive guns of slow moving battleships. There is a kind of rock-paper-scissors vibe with destroyers messing with battleships, cruisers pounding destroyers, and battleships blitzing cruisers. Mostly you're fighting against real players but the pace is slow enough for older players yet exciting enough for all ages, and brains and experience almost always trump reaction-times. It’s free to play although spending a few dollars can speed up advancement within the game – not important unless you’re in a rush because low-tier play is a blast. It would be a lot of fun to put together a Calguns "clan" (team) or two.

Those that want to master the game can learn a lot from watching Youtubes from Flamu, Notser, ichasegaming, and nozupforu.

It does look like a lot of fun. It also look like a GT 270 or newer graphics card is needed to play it. What are the hardware requirements? And, what is the size of it? Are there matches or just solo if you want? Do I get to be a guy in a destroyer cruising around the coast blasting folks I do not like? Do you get to control the planes and helos and stuff too?

The specs are pretty basic and more about CPU and internet speed (1Mb/s) than GPU.

https://worldofwarships.com/en/conte...-requirements/

You'll start out in tier-one ships, those are circa 1900 gunboats/cruisers with seven randomly chosen players in training matches against the computer. As soon as you're ready you'll graduate to 12 vs 12 random player matches playing as ad hoc teams. Tier-2 is a mix of pre-WW1 destroyers, cruisers, and battleships and that you'll earn with a mix in-game earned currency and experience points. Tier-two and above games are 12v12 and usually consist of even matches of 2-5 battleships, 2-5 cruisers, and up to 5 destroyers for a total of 12 ships per side.

Most players will pick a single track, for example Japanese destroyers, until they've mastered that track and then branch out to master others like US cruisers or battleships. With time and lots of experience you can work your way up to tier-ten (1943-1950) ships. Each line has its own strengths and weaknesses. Battleships are big, well armored and slow but have huge slow firing guns, US destroyers (until tier 8) have crappy torpedos but super fast firing guns, and Japanese destroyers have crappy guns but are stealthy and have good torpedos. You concentrate on the tracks that fit your play style and personality.

Carriers are introduced in tier-three but carrier gameplay is completely different. While you play surface ships with a gunsite view, carriers are played with a "God's eye view" from above.

I got hooked by World of Tanks, took a break to play WoW in Beta and ended up not going back for a year or so.

I have been playing Ships since launch (After beta).

Great game. It is a grind to get high tier ships. My advice is to go premium membership if you can afford it.

A good premium ship to get that "prints money" is the Mikael Kutuzov (Tier 8), or the Tirpitz (Tier 8). I think the kutu is more fun to play but thats my opinion.

PM me for my ingame name if you want. I can also point you to our clan's webpage and you can apply for membership there.

I cant wait for clan wars to be implemented.

I'm with you. I played WoS for awhile but came back to WoT. I thought I would be more into the ships with my sailing and ocean interests but it just seemed to move too slow for me. Still a good game though!

The lower tier games are basically brawl fests. When you get to Tier 4, strategies start to come into play more.

Life is never slow or boring if you play destroyers, that's why I mainly play destroyers. Life In a battleship is much more leisurely, at least until you spot my 6-15 torpedos headed your way . I get bored in low tier battleships, although I do enjoy my tier 10 Montana.

At tier 4 most players are still learning (but too many are still learning the basics at tier 10) however skills start to gel in the smarter players by tier 4 or 5 - at least in their preferred line of advancement.

The game is free to play so it's well worth trying.

I've never played the French cruisers - they're too new to the game but their style is high speed movement and maneuver. At tier 3, I like the USS St Louis, it's dog slow but has massive numbers of guns. Unfortunately the tier 4 and 7 US cruisers are made of paper, and quite honestly cruisers at all tiers, but especially higher tiers are a bear to play. Stick close to the battleships and let them draw fire while you melt enemy destroyers, cruisers and battleships with HE and citadel side-on cruisers with AP, or you can hide behind islands and melt them with indirect fire.

At higher tiers cruiser play style diverges with the French enjoying high speed, the British have smoke and good torpedos, US cruisers specialize in close and indirect (over islands) firepower and in tier 6 and up massive AA, and the Russians have long range firepower and each nation has their own special weaknesses compared to the others.

They are fun but a tier 3 player in a tier 8 ship in in for a very rude awakening. It's like being thrown into the deep end of the pool - with hungry sharks. Low tier players should hold off on buying tier 8 premium ships until you have tier 7 level experience.

BTW my in-game name is CreatureFeature.

i play like a russian general in ww2, i just move in and barrage fire. doesn't matter what ship i am using.

i typically die in the first 5 minutes of a match. the one times i live to the end is cause the side of the map i choose had little resistance.

and tip for newbies, wargaming designed their grind that up to tier 5, you will not lose any money short of doing team damage, or doing zero damage to the enemy. so kamikaze it up.

and after tier 5, you will need a premium account to even make money at a decent rate or at all.

i think they fixed this is more recent patches/economy changes, but i remember back in world of tanks, a tier 7 running on free would still net you a loss in credits unless you killed the entire enemy team yourself.

I played it for a while, perhaps I will do so again. Very interesting game play, once you're tired for ships you can always play aircraft carriers.

Naturally this varies a bit as ships you play higher-tier/more capable ships but a good rule of thumb is that Japanese Destroyers (DDs) capture cap-circles and torpedo snipe from outside of visual range, US DDs capture cap-circles and pull off ambushes from behind islands. Cruisers (CAs) have the dual role of providing cover fire for their DDs while keeping enemy DDs and cruisers from sinking their allies - cruisers are supporting artillery but because of weak armor most cruisers need do this from behind cover or from smoke. Battleships (BBS) are the tanks of the game and like a tank are vulnerable when alone. They provide the heavy muscle and punch when the team pushes forward but can only do so as part of a team of BBs, CAs, and DDs advancing as one and all concentrating fire (focusing) on one enemy ship at a time.

Another tip, smoke is a torpedo magnet. If you take cover in smoke have a plan to exit that smoke because torpedos will be fired at you and you won't get much warning. If you see the enemy take cover in smoke saturate it with your torpedoes. Keep in mind that like a bullet you are responsible for where that torpedo land if it misses the target.

I've never played them. I play tier 10 British cruisers and tier 10 American ships but I've never played British BBs or DDs. I'll refer you to one of the youtube expert channels (see 1st post) for a review of them. Those youtube channels will really help your game. British BBs will play differently from other BBs. Americans BBs have accurate guns good armor when at an angle, and great AP shells. German BBs have great side armor when up close but inaccurate guns. Japanese BBs are in between and I've read that British BBs have poor armor and AP but great HE shells but have little experience beyond sinking them.

BTW shooters have a great advantage, especially trap shooters because we know how to lead our targets.

I play both World Of Tanks and World Of Warships, much better at WOT since I've been playing it much longer.

Same name as here.

I'm just starting to work my way up in Aircraft Carriers, at tier 5 for now. Carriers are a steep learning curve even for a tier 10 player.

So far I've only tried 1 Aircraft Carrier (low tier) & quickly discovered it wasn't for my play style.

I'll probably try them again at some point though.

At first carriers didn't interest me either. I find them frustrating as heck. I'm just exploring them now because of the one of the high tier challenges and I'm grinding my way up to tier VIII carriers as fast as I can. At heart I'm a DD player but I enjoy them all.

Tier IV and especially tier V are fun levels and I earned a lot of Krakenes (5 kills in a game) with a Minekaze before Warships Nurfed its torpedos. It's a lot harder to do that now.

Not yet but I'll probably start today. I'll probably try to join a clan as well because clan battles look like fun as well.

Hey how do you plan a Japanese destroyer? I seems to sink more allies than enemies and turn into this gay pink ship all the time.

The same way you handle a gun, you do not launch torps (take a shot) across the potential path of a teammate and you maintain awareness of what is behind your target or might change direction to get in front of or behind a target. I tend to play forward or forward and to the side of the team so that my torps are of low risk to team mates. Stuff still happens but rarely.

What tier? What ship? Tier 2-3 I played sneaky when I could but tier 2-3 torps have such short ranges that I hid behind islands and then torp-ambushed or Banzi charged nearby BBs when they got close. Behind island torp-ambushes are how every DD except IJN (Japanese) are forced to do torp attacks right up until tier 8 when the USA finally gets good torps.

Tier 5 and up I'm a sneaky captain and play my IJN DDs 2-3KM forward of my backup cruisers and BBs. Forward enough that I'm in open waters just outside of my ship's detection range, while staying unnoticed. I'll then slip within torp range of the enemy's BBs and torp their flanks as long as my friendlies are well back or well out of range.

More details?

I'm playing the Japanese Wakatake, a Tier 3 Destroyer. I play against bots via the co-op battle. I'll try the "hide behind island" trick more, should be interesting.

As you get more experience you'll get where you can almost dance around enemy ships just outside of detection range. This video might help a bit.

Tier 4-7 cruisers and DDs are really fun. My tier IJN 5 DD is my favorite ship and the tier 5 British cruisers are a blast.
