WoWS has 'caught up' substantially with WoWP. WoWP will still be out the gate several months earlier, but we're about in the alpha stage with WoWS, doing office play tests.

 

The rock-paper-scissors circle is DD, CA, BB, with carriers performing something of a wildcard role.

 

No light cruisers?

For some reason I really want to command an Alaska class heavy cruiser/battlecruiser.

They sound good on paper.  Did they ever fight anything?

I was playing WoWP this morning and I had a thought while flying on the "Pacific" map.  I suspect that it is very similar to what a map in WS will look like, lots of places for carriers to hide behind while they launch air strikes and also routes for destroyers to sneak into torpedo range.  I don't know how the size will work out though, hopefully bigger than a WoWP map.  https://maptactic-pr...165e26dc207.jpg

Invisitanks in WoT are bad enough

If they do it right all the enemy ships will be invisable until spotted.  That way my BB can sneak* up on the CA's and pound them.

How big can a map be for a naval battle to be decided in 15minutes?

Everything released so far makes it sound like they'll be giving us the WoT treatment: drastically reduced engagement ranges coupled with maps that limit where we can move and funnel us into a small number of kill zones.

 

That coupled with the rock-papers-scissors nature of the gameplay mentioned earlier has me a little more hesitant about this title.

Ok.  The anime girls are cute, but I didn't understand the balloon like things with their faces.  I really don't understand why the girls have a ship strapped to them.  Otherwise, sure women and ships. :D

Do you mean the cute, animated 5-inch AA turrets?

 

OTH, those fan service frames are kinda annoyingly sick

In the second video there were these rectangular boxes (which I incorrectly described as balloons) that had a face in it and writing.  Were they orders or narration? 

 

Where did you see cute animated 5-inch turrets?

Look like signals with the korimorphic* representation of the ship that originated that signal.

 

*As anime uses mainly girls, I thought anthropomorphic was unaccurate. :)
