I'm trying to sucker a couple of young second cousins into the game.

In case they ask me what line(s) they should level (first) -

is there a good but super succint and to-the-point info source I could point them to?

Because I'd be prone to boring them with an hour-long talk and innumerable digressions, which needs to be avoided.

I have written a "list" of pros and cons with slightly more info, but very similar to Domen's overview, but Domen's overview is much more concise. If you can make things work with Domen's nicely done overview, great! Else feel free to poke me in a message and I can send it to you :)

Maybe, if there weren't so, so many errors in there. (Or "exceptions" in the lines - which ever way you want to put it ;-) <cough> Atlanta <cough> Tenryu Katori Kuma Furutaka Aoba <cough> <cough> )

Exceptions don't represent a line(i also doubt your pals will be getting the katori any time soon), as for furytaco and aoba....i think my view sums them up quite well.

(make sure that you share an invite link to them. Benifits yourself and them with some goodies)

Yeah I tried doing that and they encountered some difficulties... the link is https://playtogether.worldofwarships.eu/invite/dLr7360

but when they try to create an account, they were asked for an invite code, but when they tried entering the last part of that URL (dLr7360) which is the only piece of info resembling an invite code, it was rejected while displaying a message that only letters, numbers and _ underscores constitute a valid entry. But when they just didn't enter a code and clicked the Proceed button ("Weiter" in german), it just sort of hung... is there a trick to this?

EDIT: The code seems to be case sensitive, even though it uses lower case and upper case in the URL, the error "message" disappears if you enter the letters all in upper case.

But it still hangs and no account seems to be created.
