Hello my friend!

Look at yourself,

now back to WoWs.

Now back at yourself,

now back to WoWs.

Sadly, you don't play WoWs yet,

but if you stopped playing filthy casual mobile games you could download it for free!

Look down, back up, where are you?

You're on a boat with giant [edited] cannons!

What's in your hand? Back at me. I have it.

It's an invite code that'll get you 2 premium ships!

Look again. The invite code is now dubloons!

Everything is possible when you're playing WoWs and not your casual bull[edited].

I just sunk the Yamato.

 

Hahaha <3 You guys...

 

Kandly approved. GG.

There are a few points missing, like...

 

You only want to play battleships?

Your IQ is < 90?

You hate thinking while playing?

You never take advice from better players?

Because you think there are no better players and your 40% winrate is because you get bad teams all the time?

You don't want to get better because you think you are already good and your terrible stats mean nothing?

You want a game that adapts to bad players rather than encouraging bad players to adapt to the game?

 

If all those are yeahs, then WoWS is definitely for you...

 

And yes I am jaded, and the only two meaningful reasons for continuing to play are lack of alternatives and the time and/or money invested in my advancement, which I suspect is true for a lot of the bitter players that keep on playing...

So much this!


Sub_Octavian in September ´16: BB population increase is the real problem now. They are balancing on the edge of allowed combat effeciency and their numbers are growing. And they live too long. So we need to find the way to tweak them.

Patch 0.6.0: giant Buff for BBs

You dont....thats how.

186 ships at port.

Missing ships: Midway, Hakuryu, Iwaki (I wasn't lucky to be an Alfa tester), Flint and Black (I'm not a contributor and don't play ranked as the retroactive rewards program of WG is utter sh***t and unfair).

I dream of a forum with clear straightforward rules, professional moderators and objective sanctions not depending on the moderator feelings (just a dream) or subjective meaning of fairness.

I would not. Not anymore.
Powercreep is at full speed and community, forums included are becoming more toxic every day.

That's why I am more and more absent from forums and frome the game.

Luckily my Steam library has hundreds of games waiting to be played. :)

It was fun during CBT and the early days but..

Democracy is just a euphemism for developed totalitarianism.

If he is hard-working and an ambitious, you could always tell him about the new weekly missions. 

 

You have to try hard, repeat over and over and then be among the few who get those 'fair' prizes. 

 

Ex. In a single battle : Detonate 3 ships in a game, with secondaries, from 10 km's away, in a CV.

"You like to play carriers?"

 

"I know what game you should play"

Starcraft 2? Supreme Commander?

SupCom has Carrier that can submerge, so that's quite interesting.

There is no point trying to sell this game on pure gameplay value to someone who is not interested in ships as they may as well play any FPS or MOBA.

The draw of this game is it merges awesome and famous ships, beautifully modelled for those who are interested in them, with relatively simple action gameplay. It's not a full naval simulation but there are more niche games for people who really want that. But these are usually cottage industry games that are very buggy and/or have bad graphics, and take a huge time investment to learn and play, and that doesn't suit everyone.

Somehow funny and sad, how people writing here, seemingly have no reason to play the game, but still are here...

 

I still come to the forums quite reguralrily to check if WG would come to their senses and bring back the balance that I found in the beginning (Yeah, I know, fat chance)

 

I play maybe once every other week for about 2-5 matches, when in the beginning I was playing 4-7 days a week with about 50-60 battles a week.

 

The game is simply not fun anymore and the proposed new captain skills look like they will make the game even less enjoyable, unless you only play BB's and really like them. I came here to play all classes of ships, found out I suck in CV, did great in DD and BB and ok'ish in CA. That is untill WG started to buff BB's patch after patch. Even now I find BB play "meh", not that I would do bad in them, but because they are too easy in general.

The mighty Atlantis, kind of turned into a torp boat later though, but still nice

I would say to stay away from it, it's turning into a baby game:

 

1. No more guns incapacitated

2. Reflective team damage

3. Carrier AA consumeable

4. All kinds of other "softening" of the WW2 genre :P:)
