After reaching Tier 3 and then playing matches with most of the stuff in the game, I'm now addicted to World Of Warships.


Very refreshing change in this type of Free-To-Play. 8-)

I'm 'NefariousK' in-game if you wanna add.



Firing at enemy torpedo bombers that just dropped on someone else. I'm listing a bit from damage.

Torpedo in the face! Not fast enough, Grasshoppa.

All kinds of hell breaking loose around this BB-

Probably the most OP early-ish tier vessel is the St Louis class cruiser. It has a ridiculous amount of main guns.

Tier 3 IIRC.

Running some of the Light Cruisers and Destroyers that also have torpedoes can be pretty damn fun too. 8-)


Been grinding my Tier ~4 Jap Battleship to unlock my first aircraft carrier and the Kongo class. But the one I have to grind to move on only has six main guns, in 3 turrets. Ugh. Keep seeing my shells straddling instead of hitting, there are so few of them. :x

I've gotten rather hooked on this since yesterday (Username: ZadFnark).

I finally got my first USN destroyer this afternoon. None of this long range torpedo shot shit for me. I stick 'em under his armpit and pull the trigger. Six hits so far. 8-)

FYI..
If anyone has a previous World of Tanks or World of Warplanes account, you can use the same login. No need to create a new one in that case.



Having a blast now that I have at least one ship of each type. They did a great job with the different roles and fairly well giving them some balance despite their different strengths & styles.

I'll Friend you guys in-game. I have Tier 3 through Tier 5 ships at the moment, if anyone wants to squad up sometime. Or just send an in-game chat message & say hello.

I've managed to boost my Service Record level to three stripes (not through any skill but sheer # of battles)

I'm still just in the "Cruiser" branch of the tech tree.
I've got the Tier I Erie that I started with.
A Tier II Chester (the (B) upgrade) that I upgraded to.
A still have to Hashidate that I've barely played with.

I'm playing mostly the Chester.

My marksmanship still needs alot of work-- I end many battles with only about 12-16 XP points added.
I might shoot a hundred times in a battle and not hit anything.
I try to line up on the ship with the little target thingy, and try to lead if I see them moving but have many more misses than hits.
I have more success hitting things from inside of 2km but that is not a recipe for longevity. ;-)

I'm getting the cruiser tactics down--saw some good How To videos on You Tube (for example: Cruisers should lead and support the Battleships, Don't go off on your own to Lone Wolf it--gather with others for mutual support, etc)

I've added all three of you to my contacts. Would be interested in playing a squad game but I make no representations as to my skills.
I think that I have mastered the art of bravely sinking. ;-)

With regards to my marksmanship issues----I just discovered the SHIFT key-----what a difference that makes---- :lol:

Now to put it to more practice.
