World of Warships - Open Beta
« on: 12-07-2015, 23:07:49 »
Welcome to World of Warships - Open Beta.

This is the game that displays warships of the period between 1900 and 1960, for you to play in a competive manner. Basically the game is a spinnoff from wargaming.net's famous World of Tanks.



Spoiler
Basically you'll know the game interface. It is the same as in World of Tanks. And the game mechanics are similar. You only have to unlock all aspects of the game first, as they're considered too much for a beginner.




You start with Co-OP battles.




After that you get random battles.




And then daily missions. Like having to achieve 3 wins within 24 hours.




Yes, at some point you get free XP for distribution to unlock ships and modules.




Ship commander serves same purpose as tank crews.




Even the skills and perks should be kinda familiar.




The upgrades appear to be minor. Nothing big or special, like the reduction of the chance of receiving damage to important parts like driving shaft or rudder.



Signals are comsumables that provide little boosts to speed or similar, they deplete after single use.




Comoflague can prevent the enemy to detect you, by 3%.




Combat situation: Shelling a ship...




...and destroying it.




Example for Signals and camoflague in use.




Note the torpedos. There are no submarines in this game. Destroyers are smallest class that serves as Torpedo Boats.



Yes, I'm going for the carrier.


Tier I ships are easy to score with. Tier II compensates tier I for being easy. At least you get money. Tier III makes good money. At Tier IV business gets serious. Similar to WoT.

I'm already playing some Ryujo, Kongo, Furutaka and Minekaze heheheh

Was in CBT, even bought the Yubari pack, it's quite fun, although I'd say it has some carrier balance issues.

Everything WG does ends up being terribly balanced.


Such a shame.

Probably not so much as going to try it, back during WOT closed beta I waited and waited for it to become less arcade-like with the USA vs Soviet prototype crap but years later it's still the same.

World of Warships is very arcade. I think the WoW battles would serve perfectly for War Thunders arcade mode. Which implies that there would be realism and simulation modes besides arcade then.

Yes, they expected the Russian player market to be much bigger than Royal Navy's so they decided to add the Russians first. Since the Soviet navy never really did anything except getting slaughtered by the Japanese, their tech tree will be mostly paper ships.  ::)
Second biggest playerbase is the Germans so KM gets added after the Russians. Only then will the Royal Navy make an appearance.

There was the Warspite being a premium ship, but it got removed.

I am :D

Waiting for Sharnhorst. Then grinding for the Bismarck. They say the tier 9 and 10 aren't very good.

one major advantage german BB's have is very powerfull secondary batteries. This goes all the way to T10.

Yamato has the advantage of best firepower (and theoretical armor)
Montana has the advantage of AA defense

Kurfurst has the major advantage of protection against destroyers. With secondary battery module and captain skills (including manual firecontrol), from what i heard ingame and on the forums, she rapes destroyers and any cruiser that gets to close. Wich is btw, over 10km appearntly. You have 3x2 15cm guns firing all juicy HE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1J-KLacRlcE

Go to 6:10   Gneisenau's secondary batteries hit 71 times vs the nagato. Wich dealt 8000 damage and caused 3 fires. I frikking love secondary batteries, and my Warspite is fully upgraded with them. They are good enough for me, but the gneisenau easily performs twice as much with her secondaries.

From bismarck to kurfurst, the secondaries goes 7km and up to a maximum of 10km. Only the yamato has that, but they have much less guns.
Thats epic...

As for guns, the 42cm of kurfurst and Der grosse have more damage then the US 406 gun, but have bit less penetration. But HE damage and Fire chance is High.

Something all german BB's have is excellent protection against citadel hits. You can already see this on the tirpitz.My Colorado and North carolina never had problems vs japanese and american battleships. But when i face a tirpitz, its a tough nut to crack

HP wise they have more then the US BB's (a bit) but still less then the japanese BB's


So i think the German BB's will be a complete new playstyle. Being somewhere in between the US and Japanese playstyle.


and i will buy the premium ship scharnhost. Because the scharnhost/gneisenau deserve those 28cm!

I imagine the Bismarck can be really funny to play using HE on the main guns at 8-12km to set people on fire (making them use the repair kit) before closing in and starting more fires with the 10km secondaries.

The tier 9 and 10 look like damage pinatas though. The GK has a turning circle of 1050 meters rofl.
Their performance will depend on whether or not their potential damage output is higher than the damage input, because the latter can hardly be minimized. Even with hydro you can forget about dodging torps and they only have 25% torp reduction to start with.

i do hope that they get some adjustments to that aswel. But it is being looked into.

but yeah, what does that mean

I know wargaming from WOT and they and balance were horrible. But WOWS is better in that matter. Not all that great tough, but atleast better.

I got the chance to quick test T9 & T10 german Bb's. manouverability is simular to the other T9 and T10 battleships. Very solid platforms, the guns slightly underperform then their counterparts, but up close the german BB's are devestating and decisive.

Seems all german BB's have the same protective scheme like the tirpitz. Wich is very good news.

Funny how I have missed this thread. I really wait for german BB's, since I like to play my BB's very aggressive. On topic of secondary builds, here's my amagi some patches ago: https://youtu.be/TiNzXnt-7qo
