    Good Game Only if You Don't Invest

    I loved this game and have played over 6000 matches. While free to play they do push the purchase of "premium" ships. The advertised advantage to purchasing a premium ship is that it has unique features that will not be removed at some later date. Recently that policy was reversed without warning or explanation and the premium ships you buy can now be stripped of the very features that caused you to purchase them.A dissappointing event that is not uncommon in the game development business model. As long as you know this going in you will probably really enjoy this game. Just know that spending money doesn't mean you get to keep what you paid for. (It's allegedly in the EULA somewhere) If you want to buy a ship at least make sure you buy a premium Battleship. They cost more but are better protected from being nerfed .... for now at least.

    You Sunk my Battleship! (in a good way)

    If I could describe the feeling and experience of this game into one phrase, it would be, "You Sunk my Battleship!"

    And I mean that phrase in the best of ways. It's the same feeling I got when I was young and playing the boardgame equivalent of this game. You'll feel the thrill and excitement of every hit you do and receive.

    Graphics are good. I'd like it to be more realistic (like Battlefield 3/4 realistic) but I guess this was a good compromise to ensure that the focus was on the gameplay experience and not just on flashy stuff. It's good enough for you to be able to recognize which ship is which once you get good at the game or if you're a naval ship buff and you can tell the difference between a cruiser, a destroyer, and a frigate from several nautical miles away.

    Ship progression can feel a bit slow but this isn't the first game with this kind of progression rate. It also helps you to appreciate and master a specific class or ship before moving onto the next one.

    The devs and community are pretty good as well having pretty good feedback between them with timely updates, bugfixes, and tweaks.

    Try it!

    It is a game worth playing in your free time.

    Graphics and gameplay are very good though work again Improving community odd but the best is acceptable .
    The game is very good, has missions and regular events , it is easy to ships advance in level you .
    As inserted in any game meet several players , some of which you can understand and make a good match and others who confuse you or confuse you because they have no experience.
    Sometimes odd game exactly right and then times when teams do have the advantage or disadvantage you face the enemy team .

    Best game I've e played,,,No, Seriously.

    Yet another game i am completely addicted to. I had just finished up a battle 15 minutes prior to writing this review.


    PROS:
    - Large selection of ships that are always growing
    - You don't need to pay a penny to progress in this game. This is one of Wargamings less cash heavy games, i got to Tier 7 in a week without premium.
    - Skill based warfare. This isn't like most of the other games, where if you suck you can load cash ammo and have a better chance of doing damage. In this game, if you suck you miss, if you miss you die, and there is not any cash ammo.

    CONS:
    -For me? There is only one. The community can sometimes be toxic, i am sure you know by now that people take games WAY too seriously. But it really doesn't bother me, I am in love with this game.

    Continue reading if you want to read WHY i love this game, if you don't want to then i highly suggest you test it for yourself, what's to lose? it's free after all!


    Il set the scene, i find game play experiences are better than rambling on about how good this game is blah blah.

    So, i was in my Tier 5 premium destroyer, the Gremyaschy. The Gremyaschy is a fearsome ship, 40 knots top speed, 2 second rudder shift time and 6 450mm Torpedoes with a range of 8 Km.

    So i was racing towards the east, ahead of 2 battleships and a cruiser, we had air support in the form of a squadron of attack aircraft and 2 torpedo bomber squadrons with us. The Aircraft went ahead and got vision on 2 Battleships and another Gremyaschy on the enemies side.

    I slowed my ship to around 10 Knots and put a smoke screen up, edging myself close and close to the corner of an island, i waited...

    The enemy Kongo and Myogi were roughly 11 Km away and the Gremyaschy around 13, but they were coming so i laid in wait patiently. By 9 Km my smoke screen was back off of cool-down but i waited patiently for the right opportunity.

    The enemy Myogi split off and head down the center of the map but the Kongo kept on coming my way, little did he know i was waiting, with a potential 54000 Damage in torpedo's waiting for him.

    (Okay now, being a destroyer you get a very good concealment rating. The Gremyaschy wont be spotted by enemy ships until they are within 6.9Km of me.. UNLESS! i use a smoke screen, in which case i can get to 2.5Km and still not be seen. Okay back to battle.)

    So i waited, just on the other side of the island, behind the hill, until he got to 4.8Km to me, still on the other side of the hill. Now was my chance!

    I fired up my smoke screen, turned my engines onto 3/4 power (Going full power with a smoke screen active doesn't provide full cover because the smoke comes out in pulses, not a continuous stream) moving at around 26 Knots or so.

    Now i am not the most patient of people in the real world, i tend to want everything NOW and want to do everything as fast as possible. Yet, i find myself with this game to be slowed down, i think and plan my moves accordingly, being patient and striking perfectly. So i get to 3 Km to the Kongo, turn my ship hard to Starboard and release all 6 of my torpedo's. I know its too late for the poor Myogi, he has around a 13 second rudder shift time meaning it takes him 13 seconds to move his rudder from hard port to hard starboard, however he has 35000 HP so i need to hit him with 4 our of my 6 torpedo's, but at 3 Km i am not worried about missing.

    You may be thinking, okay, you got a kill whats special about that? Okay okay, i see your point but i am not finished. So 4 of the torpedo's hit but 2 score low damage roles doing 32000 damage but causing flooding, so hes going to die, however, the 2 torpedo's that missed, little did i know the Gremyaschy was with the Myogi after all, i hadn't seen him for a while, but again, concealment.

    Well the Gremyaschy made a hard turn to get torpedo's into one of my friendly battleships, turning side onto my torpedo's, the torpedo's he didn't see AT ALL.

    And it is moments like these that make me love this game. Moments that make you feel like a total boss, picking up 41000 damage in one burst of torpedo's. That game i went on finish on 121000 damage and earning myself 480000 credits, 6000 something EXP for a double EXP win and about 30 signal flags.

    I apologize for the entire book i wrote but i have so many good moments like this i could actually fill an entire book by now >_<

    TL;DR:

    This game is awesome.

    World of warships

    For me this game is a absolute masterpiece . Once upon a time i would never imagine that i will begin to play this kind of game . The graphics are awesome , realistic and beautiful battlefield , epic ships and great community ! I think the people that play the game are overall with manners not like the mobas and the useless kids that are playing it in general . The servers are also very stable , haven't experience a single issue of frame drop or player disc . A must play for everyone ! Far seas to all and the battlefield awaits !

    not really a naval game.

    as Navy Na Beta tester. Good old days. I can easly say game overly build on World of Tanks. Maps are really small for a naval strategy. Many maps include to many islands you can hardly use your main gun. But Worst pars is gun-aim system. very simple for battleship. if you have very slow fire rate you want good aim system. but this game has only standart mouse aim like any other shooter game. Tech tree works same as wot. there no real costomuzation about armor or guns. just a grind system carrot on stick. Compare old navy field armor & gun system WoWs really luckluster.
    I was alfa tester i was try to love game but Wargaming generally never listen playerbase.
    Medicore shooter arcade MMO with lightly mixed strategy element.

    Very Good Game

    + Easy controls, but with layers of strategy
    + Realistic ship designs
    + A large assortment of ships to unlock and choose from

    A very solid naval battle game

    A very solid game that will provide hours of entertainment for anyone willing to give it a chance. Suffers from the same grindy progress system like World of Tanks, but if that doesn't bother you underneath it lies a complex and fun game. The game is a lot slower in pace than other battle simulations (duh, ships are not that agile) which emphasizes tactics and positioning more. The shooting feels fluid and natural and it feels very rewarding when you get a precision hit on someones citadel half of the map away, burning away half of his HP.
    Overall i would recommend it to everyone, at least to give it a shot, i believe it's worth it.

    Nice game but repeats itself

    Every kid who ever played with ship mini figures or ever played sink my battleship consider this game as a dream come true. You get to pick between alot of WW2 warships and have multiple upgrade options for each ship. The gameplay is easy to learn but hard to master , i played a few time and was sank with one torpedo missle from nowhere. The game os realy fun to play but after a few rounds you feel as if you already played that fight and its a bit repeating itself, all ypu have left to do is to try another ship. Playing with friends is easy and the community in game interface is not so complicated but could be a bit complicated for small children.
    Over all i really enjoyed playing it , But there is no buzz effect to make me want to comeback ..

    Amazing game

    World of warships is definitely one of my favourite Free to Play games (although you can purchase premium ships with real money). It a very well polished game overall and has a decent amount of players playing on it no matter the time. I play on SEA and it currently has the lowest amount of players out of all 3 servers but matchmaking doesn't take any longer than 20 seconds for me. The only downside I would comment about this game is the amount of grinding you have to do. However, without the grinding the game would be very boring... Everyone could just unlock Tier 10's within a day. There's also competitive and team matches which is getting more exciting than just normal PVP. This game is probably one of the best F2P games released this year. -Qstxzz (Closed Beta World of Warships player)

    Ship game I'm still waiting for

    This game have awesome graphics,, ships handles as ship should (I guess i'm not a captain)

    Well let's go with what I like in this game, Ships, Sound effects, following your shot until it lands. Ship armor that works and if you are smart you cans shawe some of the damage

    What I hate is Wargaming Buy Dock Space for your ships, I mean come on. Captain need more people (XO, Gunnery Sergeant, ) To make this game more interesting, hell even crew to be simulated as abstract number would be nice... Spotting system of wargaming game, and dam RNG (You can only pray to RNG God for your shoots to land) no matter how good you aim, your shoots can land short or long from ship you targeted

    I like this game, but Dock system (forces you to buy if you want to have all cool ships to play) and RNG makes me not want to play it

    The Beast of the Few War Ships MMO Game.

    One of my most loved game at the moment.
    Great Graphics, Great Gameplay.
    Battleships, Light and Heavy Cruisers, Destroyers, Carriers. With history precision and a review of each ship. Doesn't feal P2Win even when there are Premiun Ships that you CANT get without real money. Is not the beast F2P model, but still, having a Premiun Ship, will not make you be better or superior to someone who only have Regular Ships.

    Its all about Team Play and Tactics.... and even some of Luck.

    The community, well you will find everything. Fanboys, Haters, Good People, Crazy Ones. I didn't give it a better rate in that, because it still doesn't have a good way to improve socialization.
