It's well known that WoWs is going to have an Combined European tree including dutch and greek ships.

Also its known that Spain have a very nice fleet and projects before its civil war. (DD's, CL and CA, some BB projects)

¿Its possible to have an spanish ship in this Combined European tree?

I'd like to expand Gorshnak's question - in general, which nations will be included in comibned TT? Or what nations will have the priority to be added there?

Kinda early to think about the combined tree. there are some massive nations that will be put in the game 1st.

Before there was mentioned that the speeds would be as historical as possible. The speeds listed by the navies of the world during the Cold War were a lot lower then they actually could. The USS Enterprise has it's speed listed as 33+ knots, however there is reasonable evidence that it was indeed closer to or even in excess of 50 knots (insane I know). So will the post WW2 ships be based on their actual speed, or their listed speeds?

I have a question of an entirely different nature:

 

 

In WW1 and WW2 it was common to rescue drowing sailors from sinking ships, in most cases ignoring the nationality of the sailors. Will this be somehow implemented IG? As some kind of credit/XP bonus for the savior, and decreased repair bills for the aided player?

  • Regarding Fog of War: Will we be able to see gun smoke from large ship batteries firing from the enemy team even if we cannot see the ship? (A bit like in tanks when you're playing arty you can sometimes tell where the shots are coming from due to smoke. Except much easier to tell due to size of guns involved)

  • Will there be wakes to ships? If so, for how long and how easy will be they to spot?

1. Will it be possible to swap a Main Caliber Gun for an Extra AA Machine Gun with Destroyers and will some AA Machine Guns be on top of the Turrets of the Larger Battleships which had them like that?

2. What sort of guns can we expect at Tier 1?

Few more question

1. I know players will be able to choose the name between sister ships(for example either Yamato or Musashi), but will this name be displayed on loading screen? Or will it simply be "Yamato class" etc?

2. Could you give as an example of tier 5 ship? In WoT and WoWp on this tier there are legends like T-34, Sherman, Bf.109 and so on, so what can we expect in WoWs?

3. Will it be possible to split enemy ship in two while ramming it from the side? Or make it flip over and sink?

4. As you already said there won't be purely ocean maps. So here's my question: will it be possible to get stuck when you swim too close to the shore? And if an enemy sinks you near the island, will the wreck be visible or maybe we will be able to even collide with it?

They already answered 4.

Yes you are able to get stuck if you get too close to shore.

The wreck will be visible if you get sunk there. You even can keep fighting if you get sunk, but have hitpoint remaining.

Can we take for granted that the AA firepower of a battleship will surpass that of a destroyer?

Due to slight organisation mishap this thread remained open longer than it should - answers for questions sent until sunday were added to this section, and answers for more questions will be provided next week. This thread will thus serve also as source for Round 6 of the questions.

 

Set sail! :Smile_honoring:

will there be any mishaps in round 7? Don't answer this, just trolling a bit hehe

 

I know you've said that AA will be Automatic but will you still be able to shoot planes down manually with AP shells? And will you be able to set different options for your AA, like Passive for example where your AA Guns won't fire?

 

With a World of Tanks the max HP of a Tier one would be something like 115, in World of Warships would the HP of Tier 1 ships be Greater or Equal to this number?

 

Is it possible for a Tier 5 destroyer to 1 shot a tier 8 cruiser with a single torpedo? (as in the torpedo blows the ships bow off the ship)

 

How would you be sorting the ship classes out? As in, with world of tanks you have, LTs, MTs, HTs, TDs and SPGs, so what ships would have similar rolls to these 5?

 

Will some ship be able to use anti-torpedo bulges which were used on the USS Enterprise CV-6 and a lot of the newer ships in that period?

 

I know you've said somewhere that guns will fire simultaneously, will there be any point that you might experiment by making the guns fire one barrel at a time? or even have it where you fire all at the same time but the Barrels fire in sequence?

Of course, even bigger. We improve! :Smile_trollface:

Will it be possible for a shot down plane to cause damage to a friendly or enemy ship if it impacts the deck? (this has nothing to do with kamikaze but with planes striking a ship after it get's shot-down)
Already answered before:


1.1  Q: It has been asked if Airplanes can kamikaze into warships, but should a carrier not want to recover his Airplanes can you simply let them run out of fuel and die? Let's say the situation called for it because the carrier did not wish the enemy to follow his airplanes back straight to his carrier if they were bombers. Adding to that, when an airplane runs out of fuel (or is shot down) and it falls from the sky and strikes a ship how much damage would it do?

A: Player can cancel the autoreturning order for planes. When plane is out of fuel it falls from the sky. The damage it can deal is not great – the bomb is much more efficient way to make damage.

I've heard and read of use of "torpedo nets", sturdy nets hung from the sides of ship to catch torpedoes prematurely so they wouldn't explode, or explode but have reduced damage to to increased range.

 

Will those be represented IG?

 

And another quick question, to statisfy myself for being able to play my favorite ship:

Will the HMS Warspite (Queen Elisabeth class BB) eventually be playable?

 

How will the hull-mounted secondary guns work?

 

 

How will damage on the ship look like? In most warship games it's at most fire, exploded turrets, and black scorch marks. Will we be able to expect realistic damage models? I know this has been asked before, but I'm curious about the full depth of how you will show the damage.

 

For example: http://www.seayourhi...2_itemId=11648

 

This is a website with illustrations ordered to be drawn by the Royal Navy to record the possible damage to ships after the battle of Jutland.

Does the version of the engine used for World of Warships have the same limitations World of Tanks have regarding the max range at which a ship can be rendered?

 

What's the average spotting range we'll get on ships, considering the way longer range of their guns?

 

Again, thank you.

In WoWS how will radar work? Will you just see Echoes on the Horizon for Aircraft and/or Ships?

Will the weight of tiers be more like WOT or WoWp? Example: Fighting a tier 4 tank in WoT in a Loltraktor is not going to be successful, in WoWp you can easily take out a Tier4 with a Tier1 plane, if you got skills.

Will Escort carriers play any part in World of Warships?

 

You've said before that AA will be automatic but will accuracy be affected by Weather and Crews Skill Level?
