  1. Nice review mrG…….thanks !

  2. Well they just updated WoWs with the new Carrier mechanics and you can control the squads in 3rd person now (also in the older update you could go to 3rd person by clicking something-that-I-don’t-remember) 🙂

  3. WOW is just wow, and WT is just what the… Why am I playing wt
    froakie257 here, hoping to earn the role

  4. I love War Thunder and after playing it would never consider play WoT or World of Warplanes, but tbh World of Warships is a better game for naval warfare. It has more ships, better and faster gameplay, etc.

  5. I think world of warships looks better. (Silencedmykham on discord)

  6. Star Conflict is better than both games together…

  7. The plane controls have drastically changed making your vid slightly out of date

  8. WT and ex-WOWS player Jan_372 here, WOWS is more for mobile (WOWS Blitz) or when you wanna throw realism away. War Thunder is when you wanna be that guy who knows even the smallest details and is only there to show off in class/or who wants something better than Wargaming (they suck). But this is just my opinion.

  9. You’ve obviously not played WoWs lately. This video is not a fair comparison at all.

  10. Gaijin is better at war games than Wargaming. Change my mind.

  11. Personally I prefer War Thunder… I like the focus on smaller ships and the lack of health bar. Also the variety of weapons I think is much more interesting. Overall the gameplay in War Thunder is just a lot more diverse. Planes, mortars, depth charges, autocannons, etc.

  12. I love War Thunder cause I can do it all, I like WoW just wish WoW was on the console.

  13. first off.. i found the most high quality picture of sethoiz today. just search “salt” on google. second, war thunder smells bad… and so do the players. (because there so sweaty). 🙂 LOVE UR VIDS G!!

    -i dont actually mean this lol. its jsut for the fun.. but actually sub to G he deserves it

  15. “You can hit the citadel, which I think is a fancy word for the bridge of a ship” Ouch @mr. G. Lol.
    More seriously: while player-piloted planes are an important gameplay difference between the two games, the root difference between the two is that they have very different physics scaling. WoW wanted players to be able to captain massive capital ships and experience that sense of awe and scale as you fire salvos from Yamato’s 18inch guns to wreak massive damage on your enemies. In order to make ship combat suitable for gameplay in a 20 minute session, the devs had to massively increase the speed and agility of all the ships (as real world naval battles could last hours or days). This scaling prevents WoW from being able to be incorporated with land/air battles, as the physics scaling would be different for players in different vehicles, and you would experience battleships maneuvering like sports cars if you were playing a different class.
    WT tries to be more like a simulation in tank and ship battles, without having health bars and such, but to me it loses out on that awesome feel of sailing and fighting with a battleship, which would force games to last half a day if the same physics time scale was kept universal regardless of the vehicle type.

  16. WT has excellent tank and plane combat but the ships are sadly quite boring atm compared to WoWs. The machine gun spam eventually gets repetitive and unrewarding but the cannon and torpedo play in WoWs feels fair and rewarding. My recommendation:

    Tanks = World of Tanks and Warthunder, both play differently but are excellent games. Pick WT for slower but more realistic combat and WoT for fast action.
    Planes = Warthunder. It has fun rewarding combat for both arcade and realistic players. World of Warplanes however suffers from a similar problem to that of Warthunder Naval. Repetitive spammy shooting with pretty random outcomes.
    Ships = World of Warships. More rewarding, more fun. I’d only pick Warthunder if you are interested in torpedo boats and armed trawlers.

  17. Hey Mr G. World of Warships changed the airpower interface. Still not individual plane flying but now only one flight of aircraft at a time and not RTS

  18. ‘T-this video is outdated!’
    LMAO. Look at all these buttblasted WoW fanboys coming to defend their trash game.
    WoW is a trash game for trash people, hence why Redditors and normies love it so much.
    Real gamers, like me: Sledge Slamfist, play War Thunder.

  19. What’s important to me is WoW (messed up acronym by the way) came out a year later so War Thunder seems to have tried to out do it. WoW seems to be tailor made for people who want accurate sea battles, not as good with the rendering and textures – War Thunder is made to outdo WoW with more textures, more stuff to do, not really loyal to the retired naval folk who want to relive their horrors in a video game. Yup, I’m printing this up, done

  20. Citadel = bridge?
    No, no, no, no, nooo, nooo, noo, no. No. Just no.
    The citadel is basically the vital part of the ship situated deep within the hull. It’s an armored (in the sense that it has its own armor, behind the hull’s armor belt), internal section (not a single compartment, but rather a group thereof) that contains the ammunition stores AND the engine rooms. If you get hit there, you’re f—ed: either your own ammo blows you apart from the inside or you go dead in the water.
