ItR17;s finally here! Wargaming just set sail and shipped World of Warships into Open Beta – here are my initial impressions two weeks in.
Find out more about me and our community on the official forums: ►http://www.quickybaby.com
Where is your XVM? :`(
World of Tanks Mod Pack please ?
Unrelated question.. Will you review the new Swamp map in 9.9 anytime soon?
naval AP shells… are not pure solid shells… at least not since explosive shells were invented for use in naval guns…
virtually all of them, by WW1 even are AP with HE payload as well (burst charge)… set to detonate within the hostile vessel.
so not, bouncing around inside… rather they explode inside the ship, and within the vital component if possible (ie: within citadel area) turning the shell into high powered fragments…
the closest analogue to tank shells would be the common APCBC-HE shells
the only question is how much burster charge the naval shell contained, some carry less.. some carry more depending on what kind of target the shell is expected to be used against. But unless someone can correct me… there isn’t a single naval shell in use at the time that i know of that was just pure solid shell with no burst charge…
except for training shells..
iam only joining when i can get the ” Bismark ” 🙂 , but knowing the bias in thees games it prob will play like a armoured dingy :-(
battleships in this game are a fucking joke ,im not playing this shit again untill they fix it
Bit lost I have only play 20 games not sure how to train my comander ..can you swop crew like wot ?? Not used torpedo yet…. question if using the mouse I move up and it won’t go is that the limits of the gun and how do I know there in range? ?? Only on 3rd cruiser so don’t really know what I am doing
QB, how can you play with those drops to sub-10fps?
love this game getting shocking feezing in the game play getting a new cpu hoping its not bandwith
Fantastic ? Nah .. rather garbage
aim bot user, more like u and the game will go dawn faster then will be relese
you have it somewhat laggy. hard to watch
I feel kinda rude when I say this but I just don’t like watching Quicklybaby playing WOWS because I have always thought of him as a total WOT fan and watching him playing WOWS just makes me kinda sick, don’t get me wrong, I live watching Quicklybaby play and analyze WOT, but WoWs, no just no…
My biggest problem with World of Warships and World of Tanks is that I often think that these games are simulation games and think that they are realistic. But these games are more like fantasy games with realistic models, thats why my friends or myself never go really hot with it.
Sorry Wargaming. But for real history fans of world war 2 its a waste of time and money.
Actually they did. In the early days of the open beta of world of tanks they sayed to wot it is a in german ” eine action geladene kriegssulation” or in englisch a war Simulation full of action. After some months they deleted the simulation part in the sentence.
+Axt _moerder Wargaming never said that they were sims. Nobody expects a sim out of WoT. Nobody ever even mentioned that WoT was supposed to be a sim. It’s hardly a waste of money if you don’t spend any and it’s hardly a waste of time for someone who enjoys a rather unique competetive game.
Yea, it’s always nice when you have a couple of teammates doing damage for you and then get the final shot, not only do you not have to do all damage yourself, but the enemy gets distracted aswell, like that Cleveland in the end who stopped shooting you and started turning the guns towards the BB and CA in the sout-east rather then killing you.
+bewing77 That’s how smart people play. They don’t rush in first and then spam the chat with “noob team” when they die (even though they were focused by 2-3 tanks/ships). You should always have support, especially if you’re a battleship. Same goes for WoT.
There are few things they need to change, like right now:
– lower the HE fire chance on hit, – they need to fix the mm a tier 7 dd is not equivalent to a tier 7 bb, not to mention ending up vs tier 10 cv when in my tier 7 Nagato :3 – change in the arming range of torpedoes launched by planes, right now they drop them 50m off the ship gl turning a bb even after u started evasive actions long before they droped them. – fix the camo on dd’s they tend to pop up 3km away from me with my scout plane launched 🙂
Other than that the game is amazing, and it’s a great change of pace compared to WoT, but it’s a bit pain in the ass coz of the new players 😉 yesterday had a 200k dmg battle in my Fuso and we lost ( put in Jingles laugh).
PS. I liked how u changed your shells to AP when Cleveland gave you his side, most of the players right now just brainlessly spam HE.
Every thing are deadly to BB
Nice, can you tell me where you from, and when and at what time you can see the twitch?
finnaly patch 9.9 came in W.o.T
It is a fun game , but only for so long. The maps just seem too small so it doesn’t leave much strategy. It starts to become the same old routine quickly. I still play it , but can only handle so much before it gets to feel boring
so are you saying that open beta account will not be wiped when wows comes into full release?
That is why I think HE is OP because each she’ll has about a 20-30% chance of setting on fire. I think that needs to get nerfed.
How are you getting 60 % or more win rates…..So many bad players in the game , least the game I get stuck with. I have killed 6 ships with the Umikaze in one game , but yet still lose…
Having armour values or even schematics inside the game would be too complicated for many players. And it’s almost impossible to do that anyway. Ship’s armour is much more complex, with multiple layers and varying thickness and angle. Also, shell impact angle is way more important in WoWs than in WoT where your shells fly horizontally most of the time. Your shells, depending on the range, can hit enemies from a nearly vertical to nearly horizontal angle, you can hit top of the ship, its sides and there is also another angle to consider at which enemy is sailing compared to your guns.
It’s not hard to learn, even mid-fight with enemy ship, what shell type you should be using. Also, most of the time, both AP and HE are viable choices – you will just get better results with one or another (compared to WoT where HE is useless most of the time).
In short: having raw armour/shell penetration values would mean nothing unless you’d be firing at enemy side armour within knife range.
How does he keep his guns aimed in and firing while hes in 3rd person and turning?
its good and nice
wow this video came out late quicky what are you doing the beta came out july 9th
This review seems a little uninformed to me because on most of the forums (WoWS, Reddit, 4Chan) seem to largely agree that the open beta patch has made the game the worse it has ever been. And while most people still love it, they seem to agree that the overall strategy and tactics of this game are far too shallow. Too much RNG in almost every part of the mechanics makes your own personal skill rather ineffectual. In WoT you can go 1v5+ and win, in WoWS your skill doesn’t have nearly that much effect on the game.
Plus the Balancing of the ships is really off: Battleships guns are extremely random in their accuracy Cruisers are nothing but HE spam in all but a few situations Destroyers are spotted too easily in higher tiers now and killed instantly Carriers still have insane disparity between American and Japanese.
Honestly the only skill based ship in the game is the carrier to me. Because its torpedoes go where you tell them and you don’t deal with random scatter all the time. Unfortunately this has made them more hated than SPGs.
How the fuck can you aim at the mountain and still “lob” the shoots around the mountain?
+Richard Gustafsson It doesn’t matter where he was aiming. Shells arc over long distances. Barrels are pointed upwards at a high angle. They’re not firing directly at the ship, they’re firing at the sky. Gravity does the rest by pulling the shells down obviously. The shells have an arcing trajectory, they’re not fired straight where you point them.
+ultraboy222 He should still be hitting the mountain, he wasn’t aiming through the mountain
+Richard Gustafsson The shots obviously arc at long ranges, they don’t go straight where you shoot at.
9:45 And that’s what I hate the most in my BBs. It makes me almost ragequit
And now lets look what the War thunder ships be like in the future.
I think that they could be a bit better because WT has no HP-bars and you could be able to land really lucky shots and win an engagement faster (like a direct hit into the ammorack)
And I think carrier gameplay could be really nice. Like teammates in planes start from your carrier with their planes in really big operations. Instead of looking from above on the map you also could fly with your plane in the mission.
+Drumead Josh But you know, no one here cares about WT?
Don’t forget about World of Warplanes Quickybaby!
+Jelemy Please forget about WoWP.
3 things i would love to see in this game, other than more ship lines, is a lightning storm map where the waves are big and actually affect the movement and accuracy of the ships, a nighy map where we have the artillery shells lighting up the sky as the fly to the point of impact and lastly, on the artic map i think it would be cool if we can shoot at icebergs and see them fall apart and possibly have the capacity to damge ships if the pieces fall on them, what do you guys think?
I think there should be a mobile version of WoWS in the near future. It would be very popular
really? is the gold shared with Wot?
This shit of a game will never be more popular than WOT and will have a short life ! what a stupid lil game :)
how do i leave all the information on the screen like shell travel time and stuff
This game is much better than wot
I’m not quite sure I see the point of the Omaha (c) hull upgrade, and though I’ve got it unlocked, I’ll definitely skip buying it. It doesn’t increase HP and only upgrades your AA a bit (which is already perfectly adequate, imho), but it decreases the number of your main guns (from 10 to 8) AND your torpedo tubes (from 4 to 2)! That is totally NOT worth it, imho! I’d rather have more direct firepower than marginally better AA, thank you very much. Am I missing something?
Im on Cleveland already and used the (C) Version on Omaha, your AA is absolute georgious with it an you lose 2 of the Guns, which you doesnt ner das much, they are the 2 ones one your rear at the top(both on one side) and the topedos, for me i didnt Need them, as JPN destroyer driver i can’t work with 5,5km range so i didnt Need them as well, one is enough to give a broadside in CQB against some BB or Cruiser 😉 … Just try it out, your AA wont let planes through if you cover some allied BB’s
Don’t forget the plunging fire mechanic Quickybaby. If you fire from close to max range the shells will come almost directly down on top of the weak deck armour. So BB’s firing at BB’s from range will be effective with AP, but up close you need to use HE again for consistent damage since your AP won’t pen the thick armour of the torpedo belt. This is because the shell trajectory is much, much flatter.
+timmy3822 Nope. You should always use AP. Belt armor can easily be penetrated by 305mm+ AP shells. You will melt opposing battleships with AP, but they’ll also melt you. You’ll be scoring citadel hits rather frequently. Even if it’s not a citadel hit, a couple thousand damage is assured, as it’s impossible to overpenetrate a battleship. An AP salvo can also almost one shot cruisers. A flat trajectory is a good thing at close range since it won’t hit the armor at an angle, it will hit it flush.
HE is BS – it should be removed.
I definiely would like for WG to add armour statistics to the game. That’d be really helpful.
And spotting damage!
It was in but taken out, can’t Tell ya why :/
As a native of the namesake of the USS St. Louis, I feel that it is necessary that I trek you that the correct pronunciation of St. Louis is not “St. Louie”, the “s” isn’t silent. You pronounce “Louis” like you would pronounce “Lewis”
I’m definitely trying the game out. 🙂
hey guys , if i play in the beta , my progress wont be wiped ?
ok i understand ty
+Algeria power The last wipe was during the transitions from CB to OB so if what WG is telling us is true there should be no more wipes.
World of Warships is a better game as it stands now than WOT for my style of play, and I have played over11,000 WOT battles so I like it also. Now I play 90% World of Warships, maybe it will get old but now it is #1 in my games.
The daily missions system was implemented in WoT a long time ago, and they are very rewarding! Personally I also like the fact that wg has linked their games, I’m not a premium player, but I think that players who do buy premium time have to be really happy, they don’t have to buy double time anymore!
oh I’m sorry to hear that, I talked about my experience in WoT Blitz (I don’t play anymore, but I did, and I was good) where I own the some tier 9 and 10 tanks, and the concept is the same, 3 missions that change every day. In WoT blitz the progress is saved, so that if you have to get 10000 xp with a tier 9 in one day, but you only manage to get 7000, when the mission appears again you can continue to grind with the 7000xp that you gained in the past.However, maybe in WoW they did it worse haha
+Master opi I drive a tier 4 and 5 BB which have mega shit AA. Guess what 90% of the daily missions are that I get? Kill things with torps and shoot down planes, like seriously wtf XD. Daily missions? Waste of fucking time, they don’t even pay that good, they’re crap.
How the hell did you get twentyseven +50% xp flags? Press account??
+HerrRoehrich I found IJN DD to be good at farming them, land a torpedo or two on a half dozen ships and you got it.
+WindmillStalker Also, when CBT players got the Arkansas Beta BB they also a full set of flags, ten each.
+HerrRoehrich Oh right, that makes sense I guess. I forgot about the once a day thing when it comes to getting flags.
+WindmillStalker No, just play well and get Confederate several times. Once a day, you can get 10 flags for getting Confederate. I already have 40 of those flags lying around… and always forget to put them on my ships 😛
Thx for the Video, good explanations!
Nice 0% draws QB
Jingles actually posted a tutorial on when to use which ammo. Short range is HE while long range plunging fire you should be using AP because it drops into the deck from above and deals massive damage. But that also requires knowing your ship and most people don’t know a lot about warships so they simple spam HE to set people on fire and burn them to death. With future updates what Wargaming should focus on is balancing HE for less of a fire chance to lessen HE spam and tightening up shot spread within the RNG to make people actually want to use AP.
Plz more wows content. Wot is old news
Are the aimmod still a problem? Havent played for the last few months
Also im not getin my face near that game you wana know why cuz 1 of all its in beta i hate playing unfinished products 2 those skills we give the people who play alot ubeatable advantage over guys who dont play much so WGN YOU SUCK AT BALANCING GAMES go ask Icefrog who is working on balacing Dota and Dota2 many many years and the WGN your gona learn how to balance a game or else you will suck :D
Hey QB, have you ever considered showing some outtakes of your video making after the end of the video. I think it would be good fun
Cool this Ship Montana it has the same name like my town :D
I like it but can u get WOTB on iPad/iPhone/iPod so we can be freinds on it?
Yeah QB, the reason you aren’t afraid of tier 6 battleships in your tier 4 cruiser is because battleships are currently broken in the current iteration of world of warships.
WOWS seemed like a great idea however I just feel like there is something missing in the game play. I really intended to download it but…not now. I’ll stick with WOT thanks :-)
For me it’s the friendly torpedo game because every fuckn new person spam fires it randomly and sinks their own team :/
woow…. I’m early huh….
Not sure you coved this bit but whats the best way to keep skill points etc when moving from one tier ship to the next ?
I love World of Warshis. Found World of Tanks quite boring for me lately but I am having a lot fun in WoWs 🙂 Awesome game!
This video just shows how broken the game is. BB can shoot 2 times min with 6 shells doing 1800 damage with HE if they are lucky. Or 5K+ with AP if they are lucky vs other BB’s. While cruisers can do 2-5K every 7 seconds.
When are they going to introduce that premium account sharing between WoT and WoWs? I really like World of Warships, got 7 kills in the phoenix the other day. Battleships are a joke compared to destroyers and cruisers tho and higher tier carriers are just over the top killing machines to the point where if you have 2 tier 9 or 10 carriers on your team you might as well just get everyone on the team to surround them, protecting them from other carriers aircraft (which i guess is realistic).
+JKSSubstandard nah…not really. low tier us bbs are slow and cumbering. they just have tons of gunz =)
+NichoTBE Well, US BBs are highly maneuverable and regularly avoid torp attacks, but they lose some resistance to gun fire for that.
+JKSSubstandard that sucks then, i guess cos i have a US WoT account and an EU WoWs account and no premium between the two. Yeah i love the Minsikazi (sp) best destroyer ever. The Kongo is a good battleship but the US ones seem to have really weak armour as they melt really quick as shown in this vid with the New Mexico.
+NichoTBE Premium account sharing is live right now. Every ship has its best and worst parts. While battleships are a joke at times, if you land a good salvo and instakill a cruiser or DD that was on full health…its suddenly worth it. My favorites so far are the Japanese destroyers with their long range torpedoes. You can essentially haunt other ships from outside spotting range and force then to disengage battle every 30 seconds or get eliminated.
QB, you may need to make a correction on the commander’s skill. The part where you said “this skill with make your guns more accurate and increase their range,” those skills are for secondary guns and not for the primary guns. This means those skills will not be useful for destroyers as they lack secondary guns and their AA isn’t all that impressive.
+Tom Wißling Except it may NOT be a bug – a description of the skill states that it affects all “small guns up to and including 155mm” – it does not make a distinction between primary and secondary guns so it is entirely possible that it is meant to affect small-calibre primaries as well.
There is a Bug, they work for every Gun Till 155mm, also Main Battery 😉
I’m kinda annoyed that the only access i got into the closed beta was on the US server, never did get a code for the EU server, so all my progress and the Arkansas Beta ship are on my US account, and I don’t think they will transfer it over.. ugh
They need to improve graphics, effects and sounds to compensate the slow gameplay..
Wow, you’ve got Chikuma already!?
Right now I have 2 Guardian missions and 1 Sky in Flames, but I dont have a ship with good AA. They should allow you to deny missions.
you fucked up the sound/vid sync
So i brought the Gremyashchy pack in closed beta and so i also got 2900 gold. However, the gold is not showing on my wot account. Any solutions?
The Phoenix is an AMAZING ship! Just got my highest dmg ever game in it.
+Sebastian Plate Oh just you wait till you get the Omaha and especially the Cleveland! They’re even more awesome 😀
QB for the recort japan’s cruiser tier 5 guns dosent reload fast lol 18 sec rload time :)
Hey guys! Dont you know whey they delete infomation about armor? i saw many replays and it looks like some higher tier ships have more armor as they had in real life… just my impressions
+pjstonehill444 because they need to fake all the stats to make Russian ships viable.
The other thing to take into account is fall of shot. Decks are more lightly armoured than the sides!
whats with the jittery fps?
+Stern Von Afrika Maybe for you. If you go on the WoWs forums theres entire threads about the FPS issues. Theres also issues where the audio will start cutting out every other frame. Just because you have had a perfect experience doesnt mean everyone else has.
+JKSSubstandard bullshit. never had that problem. runs with smooth 100+ fpa for me at all times.
+Stern Von Afrika Its in Beta so there have been some performance issues when a lot of ships are firing in close quarters. They are optimizing a little more every patch
Still can get like 6 kills in St. Louis :p
HE is OP. Battleships are hilariously underpowered. The repair mechanic sucks. There is just so much wrong with WoWs right now.
+CommandoDude Oh really? I guess i’m some kind of a pro player then? I regulary do 5 to 20k damage against cruisers (tier III and IV currently) with a single AP salvo. Yes, i do take damage and i am usually set on fire, but 30 seconds after that salvo they’re dead, the fire is out and my damage is totally repaired. As good as new. If they aren’t dead, they’re near death and teammates finish them off. No idea why people complain about “underpowered” battleships as i surely don’t feel “underpowered”. Of course, you’ll be torn apart if you get focused by 2 or 3 cruisers, but this is a team game, you’re not supposed to go alone. You’ll get torn apart by any combination of 2 or more ships, regardless if they’re firing HE, AP or torpedos. In the case of cruisers, HE does more damage because AP can’t penetrate battleships, so HE is the only choice. Against other cruisers, AP does way more damage than HE. You’ll be scoring citadel penetrations on other cruisers like crazy.
+TheGreatRakatan HE does more damage than AP, because you don’t do spalling damage and fire makes up the difference. Battleships are atm hilariously inept at fighting off Cruisers because of HE spam. Meanwhile BBs need to pray to RNGesus because dispersion was nerfed so hard for them. Repair mechanic is lazy design period, Battlestations Midway had a better repair mechanic and is almost 10 years old.
+CommandoDude HE does considerably less damage than AP, battleships have gigantic guns that murder ships if you can aim properly, and the repair mechanic only sucks if you use it the instant you get set on fire, before even considering that you should probably get out of HE “spam” range before trying to put the fire out.
Any thoughts on getting xvm for this? I have been using your mod pack for wot since i started playing and would love to see some of thise features here.
For me WoT is pretty much the slowest game i’d be willing to play, WoW is even slower! Much slower! Just not as exciting (most of the time) and too tactical, almost like a turn based strategy or something.
I guess like 95% of all new players you got into a battleship, which are by design a very slow and strategic class where you need to plan stuff often 10minutes ahead of time. Like someone said, Destroyer gameplay is much more action, but also pretty much the most difficult class to play, so be warned. Extremely fun and rewarding though.
Try playing Destroyers. Spend half the time on the verge of a heart attack. . I found Battleships and carriers really slow n dull but Destroyers are so much fun
+UrbanTarzan Duh I am guessing you are a light tank driver on World of Tanks. T71 your speed?
+tianle chen time flies when you’re a faggot
+UrbanTarzan Duh Beautiful.
Two ships I’d recommend you definitely try out are the Kongo (Japanese tier 5 Battleship) and Mogami (Japanese tier 8 cruiser)
The Kongo is, like you said, quite quick with decent armour and good guns, and I seem to recall you prefer quicker and more maneuverable ships. The Mogami is a great tier 8 cruiser with, with both the 155mm and 203mm guns being excellent, depending on the role you want Mogami to play. Her torps are also useful when you are on the retreat.
+BustRobot’s Gaming Corner *Awkward*, OK I should really go to bed. Thanks for the info.
+technowizard78 If you type in Google “Fast Battleship Kongo” you’ll find a few sites detailing the history of the Kongo class and how it got re-rated from Battlecruiser to Battleship to Fast Battleship over the course of her life. This page provides basic overview of her history and refits. http://www.militaryfactory.com/ships/detail.asp?ship_id=IJN-Kongo
There’s also wikipedia as well, but I won’t link that. 🙂
+BustRobot’s Gaming Corner Could you please direct me to a page where I can confirm that the ship was classed as a “Fast Battleship”, cause I don’t want to repeat false infos. The reason I’m pedantic is the ambiguous classification which leads to playing the ship the wrong way, frustration and many comments in the forum that the ship is a shitty BB. I did so, too.
+technowizard78 Oh I know it’s a Battlecruiser – though if we’re going to get ‘really’ pedantic in it’s top configuration it’s actually a “Fast Battleship” – I was using the term Battleship, because it’s in the Battleship tree.
+BustRobot’s Gaming Corner The Kongo is a battlecruiser not a battleship. This might seems to be a pedantic distinction but it is not because what advantage the Kongo and the Myogi have in speed they lack in armour. And if you play them like real battleships (like the US ones) you play them wrong.

I really hope they do reset progress after ending open beta, since otherwise it is big douchbag move, since right now you don`t have option to make “check” on elited ships like in WoT, so all exp are acumulated on those ships and that promotes people to spend gold to get that exp as free exp.
+QuickyBabyTV HE- Shells are not the way to fight against bb´s if your shells are plunging his weak deck armor
+Marvin Metalhead Small caliber AP shells will still bounce off and be useless. HE shells are basically your only option if you have smaller guns than can penetrate the battleships’s armor.
+ultraboy222 i pen bb´s with my american 152 ap shells
+Marvin Metalhead Depends on the caliber of your guns. Basically anything below 200mm firing AP at BB’s is useless. for IJN cruisers tier 5 and up you get 203 mm guns. With HE you can do 2k-5k damage consistently and set fires, but at longer ranges and with some luck, you can do upwards of 8k damage with your AP shells. However it requires much more luck to do that and it’s not worth it since you can get 5k consistently and set fires with HE. Obviously BB’s should shoot AP at other BB’s at any range, but for other classes of ships you need to choose the right ammo type, and more often than not it is going to be HE
+Marvin Metalhead Low caliber AP shells (152mm) are not going to penetrate the deck since they lose a lot of penetration at long range. At short range they won’t be able to penetrate hull armor as it’s too thick. In short, you don’t use AP shells against battleships if you’re playing cruisers. If you’re in a battleships you should be using AP against everything but destroyers.
+QuickyBabyTV You are sure about the wipe (6:52)? I didn’t find any info about this.
+kvineyard Thank you for this answer. So it’s time to grind hard!
+Krzysztof Dudek It’s been said a lot by Wargaming that they do not plan to wipe progress from open beta to release. Which really just means the open beta is the release for all practical purposes. But WG seems to hint that they are reserving the right to change their mind with little or no notice.
Love QuickyBaby giving in game info. help us a lot :D
How did you say beta there I thought you were British!!!!! ;)
HE module damage is OP :p
Kinda wish they’d bring that into WoT for non-arty tenks :<
Thanks QB, this was a good intro to WoWS. For some reason, no one else seemed to come right out and say that you have to have a ship targeted in order to aim and hit it when it’s behind an island. That was driving me crazy. I agree with you that they should have the armor values and pen values displayed. Maybe someone will come out with a version of Ship Inspector or something. But really, at long ranges it’s pretty much a crap shoot.
I’m grinding US destroyer line and I am on tier VI Farragut.Today I did 180k DMG with Farragut torpedoes so I don’t think that U.S. Torpedoes are much worse tha Japanese.Also the guns on US destroyers are DPM demons
+Peter Melicher The difference between Japanese torpedoes and American torpedoes is the range. The Americans are very short range.
For now, WoWS is more exciting than WoT…. just having way more fun grinding ships in WoWS. Though honestly, I’ll have fewer battles per day than in WoT, but hey I get larger XP values :-P
Tried this for a while, couldn’t stomach it. Got up to the T4 in battleships which I wanted to play, and then T3 in crusiers which I played just to confirm my suspicions. Playing a Battleship in this game was quite possibly the worst experience I ever had in online gaming, I just felt like everyone’s XP pinata. You can do everything right and the game will STILL give you the shaft. Most of the time you get one or two hits out of each salvo regardless of how well you aim it, because the RNG controlled spread is off the bloody charts, when you do hit, the damage isn’t even worth it, HE shells do 50-100 percent of what an HE cruiser salvo would and AP shells either overpen for 1000dmg on everything or bounce on battleships. You’re apparently supposed to hit citadels with battleships, but with the accuracy they give you that’s utterly impossible. I looked on the web where exactly you’re supposed to shoot and how and then I quit the game after I was shooting at a guy standing still from 4km away, and not even once have the guns hit where I actually aimed them. Not even close. And while youre busy missing and cursing the cruisers will just light fire after fire after fire and you can’t do anything about it, because your salvo missed despite you aiming it well and you have a 30 second reload. You can’t outrun them either and their range is more or less the same as yours. (Even bigger than yours if you’re in a T3 BB, which are quite possibly the worst ships in the game right now) Heck, you saw exactly what I’m talking about in the video above with that poor New Mexico and the other masochists in the other battleships.
And don’t even get me started me started on torpedo bombers, you can dodge arty in world of tanks no problem, you can’t in this. A good dodge of a torpedo attack means you will still take 1-3 hits. That’s still about a quarter of your HP gone. How is that fair? If two carriers decide they will kill you, they will, in 2 attack runs tops, and nothing you can do will change that. Enjoy your 5 minutes of gameplay. Thing is the cruisers on your team are supposed to give you AAA cover, but the cruisers on your team don’t give a single crap about you, this is online gaming after all, cause they’re too busy lighting enemy battleships on fire and farming free dmg. And you can’t stick with them, they’re much faster, They gotta stick with you, and they never do.
Secondary battery fire is even less accurate than your main battery fire, making your close proximity protection against light fast ships essentially worthless. Not to mention it has almost no range. They’re the same calibre guns the destroyers and cruisers fire at you but somehow they only have 3km range. Makes sense. This means you gotta shoot destroyers with your main guns and you need about 4 hits of HE to kill one. Good luck getting those, your spread is 5 times as big as his ship.
I say screw this, the game is not balanced whatsoever and more or less forces you into playing the cruiser/carrier meta. Destroyers are somewhere in the middle, the only class actually dependent on player skill. And if you play a Battleship, you’re simply gonna have a bad time. They’re a joke.
+bla4547 I never lost a gunnery duel against a cruiser. No idea what you’re complaining about. A cruiser just can’t beat a BB. It just can’t, not by itself. Of course, we’re talking about two equally skilled players. I usually get a hit or a couple hits before the cruiser even starts firing. An AP salvo can almost one shot a cruiser, but it will mostly halve their HP. Yes, you’ll take damage and most probably be set on fire, but all of that will be repairable by the unique ability that you can use 3 freaking times. The tier 4 Kawachi has pretty shitty range, yes, but it’s the only example. The range gets absurdly high after tier 4, it goes above 20km. Battleships are not underpowered at all, you just don’t know how to play them. I don’t know what you want them to do. Make them super accurate even though they outrange everything? Give them even more HP even though they have the most of every other ship? Make them as nimble as destroyers? Give them 5 times increased firing rate so they can match cruisers with their 305mm+ guns? Battleships are extremely good in good hands of course. Skill has the biggest influence on your performance, it’s just that your not good enough (yet) and you’re blaming the game for your incompetence. I never had a bad game in a battleship (although i’m only at tier IV, but i doubt you even got there since you’re complaining so much). I did have mediocore games, but that’s due to my lack of skill, not because battleships are bad.
Seems to be hard capped at that too. When firing AP I only do 1000dmg on overpen, 3300dmg on good pen or 10000 on citadel pen. Nothing inbetween. Then suddenly out of nowhere 1600dmg or other random number, dunno what those are supposed to be.
+bla4547 I would kill to do 1600-3100 damage with each shell XD. But it’s still beta, and a lot of peeps are complaining about it, so it’ll be altered prolly lol
+Adrian Tepes I do that. I bloody do that. But the problem is that my skill has no influence whatsoever on my damage it seems. I just went 1v1 with a Wyoming in a Miyogi in the last moments of the game, we were roughly the same HP. The range was 7km, I had the lead good, but most of my shots went either over his ship or fell short, and the ones that did hit, only did inbetween of 1600-3300dmg. I did what I was supposed to do, I scored multiple pentrations right into the middle of his ship below the smoke stacks, below the guns, close above waterline, higher above waterline… about a thousand dmg was all I was getting, once or twice 3300dmg. meanwhile he just fired HE and absolutely rekt me. Like I’m saying the citadel hits are just luck, the damage model in this game is absolutely inconsistent. If I don’t get a citadel pen when I hit him right above the waterline in a flat angle below the smoke stacks, then where the fuck else should I be shooting? The bridge?!
+bla4547 Ok, you’ve been saying this a lot, but that simply doesn’t happen to me XD. Here’s some actual advice, start the game by engaging at long range, then get close to wounded ships and tear them to shreds. You’ll do a lot better that way lol
i went to search for the website and i accidentally typed ”world of warshits” xD
Right now driving a battleship is a bad place to be in this game.
Cruiser HE spam kills you. DD’s wipe you out and CV’s are deadly to you.
BB’s are supposed to be strong Vs Cruisers. The effectiveness of HE Vs heavy battleships and fires needs radically changing. It is astonishingly unrealistic and unfair.
+thegeneral123 The fire coused by HE shells turns the life of the BB into some serious pain! I think WG should consider to change the current HE-fire vs BB mechanics. You cannot catch the Cruisers most of the times, so they just spam the HE on you. I think they should buff the secundary guns on the BBs too.
+thegeneral123 Because I can 1-2 shot cruisers with AP from my huge deck guns, and you generally have longer range than they do.
+Joe Crasse Let me guess, you hang at the back and miss a lot at extreme range? Yes that is easy to do. A good cruiser captain will get you at the edge of his range and bombard you with HE spam. You will succumb to fires. Or if you are really unlucky a DD will slip through the net and close on you and give you 6 torps at 2km. Something I like to do.
I got so fed up of driving a BB, I started learning the DD route. I’m getting 2-3 big kills every game now in a DD.
BBs are too vulnerable in this game.
+thegeneral123 Dude, I decimate cruisers in BB’s. You have to start rethinking the way you sail those bad boys.
they totally f*cked up the japanese starter ship …but aside from that well its typical WG , premium ships all over the place and no real new content
Wtf the Hashidate is waaaaaay better than the Erie what are you talking about
I live in the world where they add 6-7 PREMIUM SHIPS during the CLOSED BETA , make the japanese starter ship out of paper with slingshots for guns , can´t get rid of the aim assist mod users they dont like to talk about anymore … and i never said i want new content i said its typical WG … more premium stuff more stupid and pointless nerfing no consistent values on Penetration,Armor etc.
+German-HEAT- Lol wut? Wanting new content between a closed test beta and open beta? What fucking world do you live in?
+German-HEAT- Seriously? The open beta just got released for fucking gods sake. Priority is squishing bugs and improving the game untill the final release, not releasing more content. There’s also only a couple of premiums, nothing bad about that.
I think wows, wowp and wot could all do with having a separate divisions based on players skill level. would stop seal clubbers and allow new players to learn against similarly skilled players and also stop better players getting annoyed by people that have no idea what they are doing.
HE ammo is overperforming in the game and the need to lower fire chance.
Then you’re better off not puting it out löl
+Azure Gearsts Just wait to use your repair skill until you aren’t getting showered with shells from a cruiser.
+Azure Gearsts My rule of thumb is…DDs always fire HE because if you are needing to use your guns in a DD, you are lighting a fire and running away. In a cruiser, use HE against DDs and BBs and AP against cruisers. DDs are weak to HE and cruisers should be doing as much module damage as possible to BBs, meanwhile cruiser AP is the easiest way to citadel an enemy. In battleships, always fire AP.Penetration is your friend and if you have to fire at a DD, chances are you are already dead to his torpedoes
+Azure Gearsts I don’t agree with that. The game is definitely about ammo switching and maneuvering. People who complain about either HE or AP just didn’t grasp the concept yet. Play a bit more or find a guide on youtube and your performance will improve greatly. Citadel penetrations and AP are the real damage dealers.
Tip for new players: for citadel hits try to aim at the center of the ship, near the waterline, there’s a chance your shot will go trough the water and hit low armoured parts of a ship.
+Sackshka has to be! Half life 3 confirmed
+Raz0rking all ilIuminati mate
+Sackshka i have to think about epic rap battles of history now…coincidence, aint it?
+Dante Delgadillo no probs 🙂
+Sackshka thank you, i am just installing game right now :3
Yea QuickyBaby playing World of Warships. About time
Next patch will have cs:go style case openings but for signal flags instead of guns or knives,
+John Herbold Yeah lol, having a bad time getting flags in my BB atm, there are really only 1 or 2 that are even possible to get by deliberate actions in a BB. Even then it still relies heavily on rng. Might have no choice but to actually buy them to get a fair fight.
Ar-ken-saw? Shouldnt it be “Ar-ken-sis”? Also, Are 3+ upgrade slots only available on premium ships or also on regular non-premium ships later on?
+Shino Obata Arkansas is pronounced Arkensaw, but Kansas is pronounced Kansas. Odd but true.
+Shino Obata People from Arkansas allways bitch if you say Ar-ken-sis, they pronounce it Ar-ken-saw, so I am sticking to it.
+Alex Mitchell Makes sense, should have known it XD
+Shino Obata Nah, pronounced as Ar-kan-saw. Upgrade slots are available on all ships passed tier 2 (or 3?). o7
Saw is correct tho it may be another one of those deals where it depends on what area you live in. Like the 2 completely different ways of saying Pecan
Unbalanced as hell.
Played up to T6 then uninstalled.
+newhoped People implying the game hasn’t been in beta (and other tests) for many months. Best intelligence.
+newhoped So you uninstalled a ‘beta’ game because it wasn’t balanced and finished?
Unbalanced match making and way too strong IJN CVs at the moment.
+newhoped Cool, now we won’t have you in a game complaining.
+acyde125 Probably not the Cleveland or else he’d be jerking off instead of complaining
The team have gone really downhill, rarely got hit with friendly fire in closed beta now im getting teamkilled/damaged in half my games. new Destroyer captains just randomly launching torpedoes without any thought as to where they are going to end up. SOOOO much camping at the back now, had games where nobody else on the team even left the starting area. shame as this used to be a really fun game.
+johnfarscape I don’t think you realize that every game which was in closed/open beta has gone through it. The game is now available to public, so you shouldn’t be surprised that some childs or idiots gets to play and ruin the battles.
There’s also another possible reason. Open beta means that new players comes along. The same as you learned game and was noob at Closed Beta, the same they starting their journey on Open Beta. Just give it a time and battles will look much better.
That was kinda my point. In closed beta we all had no idea what to do but players helped each other out like if someone didn’t know how to manually drop bommer torpedos or something someone on the team would tell them how. Overall the whole experience was very enjoyable . Played since the start of beta and I cant think of a single argument or intentional team damage. . I couldn’t play for a few days but when I get back the games gone into open beta and my first game back at tier 1 a guy goes off on his own right through the middle of the map n gets killed. Next 15 mins he spends whining we are all noobs and no support then constantly tells the enemy team where we are on the map. . Thought it might just be a one off but after getting my first destroyer a guy on my team launches a spread of torpedos straight into my side then calls me idiot in chat and said I should look where I was driving. . Another guy team killed me so he could kill the enemy carrier before I got it. . Just a few examples of the dozens so far. . . Anywhoo the point I was trying to make is that something needs to be done by wargaming to stop the same thing spoiling wows that spoiled wot. The report a player thing does nothing.
+johnfarscape sure those toxic players are a pain no doubt about it and i can imagine that the atmosphere was nicer in alpha or closed beta … but all this complaining about people dont know how to play the game somewhat sickens me because well yes in oposite to you closed beta testers those people have their first battles in a new game at the moment so how should they know how to play it?
If you played closed beta you would know. Players then were really nice. Helpfull. Polite. and sportsmanship was common. Got a lot and gave out a lot of comliments on gameplay etc. . Now its like WOT with offensive chat and the first guy to die blaming the rest of his team and calling everyone noobs. Just seems a shame . Maybe if Wargaming actually done something about toxic players rather than the current report system which as we all know does nothing it would improve everyones enjoyment.
+johnfarscape That’s literally every multiplayer game ever, I don’t know what you’re going on about.
”the commander skills are more powerful than ever” *shows nerfed skill as example

Can you bounce shots?

There’s one thing I don’t like about this game as a BB captain. HE Spam. I hate that so much. Being on fire in like 3 places at once for half the game isn’t fun at all.
+The Warlord of the Rising Sun Solving this involves actually thinking about when you use your repair skill. If you use it the second you catch on fire and you are still being shot at, then you might as well have saved it until you were out of range or sight.
+The Warlord of the Rising Sun But I bet you enjoy those 20k damage citadel hit. HE is a way to punish BB’s when they do a bad moves. I play BB’s and have no problem taking out cruiser lobbing HE.
+The Warlord of the Rising Sun I’ve only had about 10-15 games as a battleship, but i never had that problem. Tier IV currently. I mean, i never got into a situation where a couple of ships were targetting me. You gotta use your environment and always have support. If you’re getting fired upon by 2-3 cruisers you’re gonna get melted in no time and you’re gonna be burning like Vietnamese jungles after multiple napalm strikes. A single cruiser is no problem though. About two AP salvos are usually enough to destroy it and if it survives your supporting ships are going to finish it off. I might catch fire once or twice, but oh well. You forget that you’re the only class that can repair the damage (and you can repair A LOT of damage).
+The Warlord of the Rising Sun I feel you, man..
+adeafkid Don’t you touch them!
but but..how do i sidescrap a island with my battleship?
+Luca Menikheim truly khorosho
You habe to be one beiing with the Island :O
Good lord this game looks even more grindy than World of Tanks. No thanks.
+knotwrite Progression != grind, but naturally people who don’t like the gameplay are going to say it’s grindy, but that’s just because they don’t enjoy actually playing the game.
+knotwrite Being a stock vehicle in this game is not a death sentence, contrary to WoT.
+knotwrite It’s not. It’s not even close to the WoT grind.
+knotwrite If you play in a strong platoon (meaning lots of wins), use premium account (+50% exp), use flag for +experience (+50% exp) and you perform well, you can have tier 10 in 4 days, after like 250+ battles? It took me 18 games played in tier 6 carrier to unlock tier 7. Ofc no noob will ever get these massive amounts of exp per game, but it is the same in WoT, where also new players get like 200-400 avg exp per game.
so you expect tier 10’s to be had in a few days? of course it’s going to be a grind, no one said it wasn’t. we’re fanboys because we told him how it’s not as painful as WoT? edit; most games are decided in ~15-20 mins just like WoT btw..
How can i get a press acount
+Mstrike Mstrike This isn’t a press account. If this were a press account, QB wouldn’t be utterly broke at less than 300k credits. 😛
It’s just that, depending on how much you played in closed beta, you got advanced levels and their respective rewards at the release of open beta, plus any gold and/or premium ships you bought during CBT. e.g. I played up to tier 6 in closed beta and got advanced to level 6 and got my Yubari and 3000 gold, as well as 2 of each signal flag when the game reset for open beta. Apparently QB, having played more/better and having bought more premiums/gold during closed beta, got advanced farther and recieved a few more signal flags.
And what do you think about STA-2?
What do you guys think so far of World of Warships?
I’m LiveStreaming RIGHT NOW! http://www.twitch.tv/quickybaby
+QuickyBabyTV Hey, How do I get a German sounding crew, on the Asia server. What is the best mod for it?
+Joe Blobdob If slow sucks, then grind to T4 DDs. Fast pace action there if you need it.
+QuickyBabyTV qb i think you made an error when discussing the commander skills at 6:10 which i made myself. the second column of commander skills is for secondary armament only (The first column is for main battery or player controlled guns) and they have put a label on it but the writing is black so its very very easy to miss. this means that you are actually unable to increase the gun rof and range on low tier cruisers or on destroyers instead its only really useful for battleships.
+Flaviu Crystian It looks incredibly slow and boring. I wouldn’t go near it and I predicted when I first saw it that it would eventually fail as a game. I haven’t seen anything to change my view.
+QuickyBabyTV Well, you open by saying its now open for everyone, but alas, it is not. I can only play with inverted mouse, its just what I’m used to. WoT, WoP and every other game I play, I play with inverted mouse. Guess what? WoWs doesn’t have the option yet, its like trying to play with your mouse in the wrong hand, practically impossible. I’ve ticked WG who say that they’ll implement it sometime in the future, but not soon. Looking at the forums this has been asked for since Alpha! Why are they alienating a good portion of their player base? If you have any influence whatsoever, could you ask WG to look at fixing this issue? Surely, its only a few lines of code?
