I had heard from players that the Chinese Navy use WOWS as a training simulator for their sailors and that a few had met them in-game.

I took this to be hearsay til I discovered these Chinese clans, could it be true!?:

well.... i can confirm from a documentary on tv (german zdf, kinda reliable in such things lol ^^), in vladivostok pupils of russian naval academy do play wows in class for such purposes (sim, historic, ...).

 

... now, how is this related to wows gameplay?!

Some Naval cadets on board the Sedov actually play World of Tanks. But in their free time. Those that Ive asked never touched World of Warships tho.

We could be going up against real life naval powers, something to consider. Also, if they are Chinese Navy they might be listening in on our discord chats.

You won't learn crap from this game that is relevant for modern naval warfare. So, unlikely.

nah. it's been just a few days ago, i think on zdfinfo. could've been phoenix as well. usually official german television is kinda reliable when it comes down to such things.

 

even more, in that regard, they visited the actual academy and wows was shown on screen while the teacher babbled something about "simulation in class, for historical and strategical purposes". seen it myself, didn't beleive it :D.

Dude, we could be playing against many of the games actual developers and still whippin their asses. The guy could be the admiral of the Chinese navy and still suck at this game, it means nothing. It might be simply a theme common to their vocation in life.

Sorry I dont buy it, I smell "red conspiracy".

 

Russians letting the Chinese Navy train on their naval simulator so they can figure out how best to sink western ships.

 

Dont take everything at face value sir, look behind the iron curtain. There is more to be seen!

 

Chinese Navy training on our server in elite clans, rise of stalinium shippower and now the announcement of russian bbs. Its all too coincidental to be an accident.

 

Something bigger than us is happening here. Why cant you see that.....

...seriously, even if:

- we can be glad if actual navies run wows for simulation purposes lol, how one ever could feel more safe?!

 

-...still absolutely no relation to wows gameplay!

In the translation the professor (or whatever he is) says they play the game to learn about ship building history and naval weapon development of the time. Not actual combat or strategy.

I guess there are worse methods out there to do that. Playing NavyField and WoWs certainly sparked my interest to learn more about it.

 

Using WoWs in lieu of spending time and money to develop dedicated software is a fairly simple and pragmatic solution. If something already exists to suit your needs, why create something new?

Just like e.g. the US military has been using XBox controllers for years to control some of their hardware.

 

Or in other words:

"If it looks stupid but it works, it isn't stupid."

Why are you still looking for a forum ban?

 

Dont you think just by removing the bookmark and finding something else to do you would be better off...
