WoW's vs WoT's

 

 

How come the World of Warships game seems a much better balanced game than World of Tanks, seemingly less bitterness in the game, more balanced, sometimes more fun, and no need for two servers.

 

 

Yet both games are under the Wargaming banner, so how can one be worse than the other?

And why is there no need for two servers?  Because not enough people want to play it.  So much for it being better.

 

I played it a bit, it's pretty boring and one dimensional.  You drive around and shoot other ships repetitively, no tactics apart from whoever lands most shots fastest wins.  If WoT had followed that model I would have quit long ago.

WoT is just like that. Of course, people are as obsessed with WN8 as women are with their cartilage, and we have FAME, GO-IN, Frontline, CW, etc and so on and so forth, which dilutes that perception.

But the bottomline is just that:

 

Heavies, brawl here.

TDs, camp there.

LTs, scout here.

MTs, flank those.

SPGs, rain fire.

 

More so with the current mapset which favours heavy, thick armour and the MM.

WoT is just as boring and one dimensional. The occasional gemstone that pops here and there is what makes me playing, fwiw.

 

I never liked Navys in general, so I'm not gonna bother with that, on top of having a different premium currency and separate free exp and credits counter.

 

To play WoWP, I prefer playing combat flight simulators and already have such a game.

 

Which means I'm stuck on WoT which is slightly more interesting.

 

With regards to the community, which the previous comment did not address, I've never met such bile before and I must say I was quite negatively surprised by it. Other games are not as popular but are much better maintained and that bile is appropriately taken care of (see the latest changes in TK on WoWS) that probably explains the less criativity with the insults, teamkilling and other things that are more than welcome and rewarded in WoT.

Oh so angling your battleship to get less damage, no skills? or sneaking out from behind islands in your destroyers and Cruisers, no skill, no tactics? You entire argument could equally cover WoT's, maybe less people playing it is the better thing?

world of warplanes is also a funny game tbh, i played it a bit, but it has a rly bad fps optimization, and sadly most games are composed by bots and few "humans"

WoWs requires less skill. Everybody is on the same plain. There are no ups and downs and less cover but players still somehow tunnelvision more in ships than they do in tanks. Gameplay is way simpler than in WoT but players still manage to suck in WoWs for some reason...

It's absolutely boring, i tried it in the early stages....not my type of game. My buddy enjoyed it though. The only class worth playing would be destroyers that need some skill to be effective, even more so after the nerf they got thanks to whiney redlining BS ( the TDs in warships ) and CV ( the arty in warships ) players.

Yeah but they are the best games.

 

It's when the bad humans turn up that it goes south.

I want to challenge this statement. I drive a KV2. And give how cra.p the armour is I tend to notice how a lot of maps are more "open". Very few have places where a lumbering house on tracks like my KV2 can go and not get snipped 600m away by tier 8 TDs.

I say that we dont have enough city maps and some need major reworking. Especially Malinovka, since if you get that map you are doomed to 15min games because its just one open field and everyone blind snipes. 

I started playing World of Warships before trying WOT and I can say that WOW has very little tactics involved. Its shooting is a complete RNG (except for torpedos), who shoots first usually wins (unless he gets a bad roll of overpen, shater shels and the other guy just gets 2 citadels after his 2nd salvo.

 

Angling is also a tactic in this game but not as much as in WOT.
IDK but for me WOT is more tactical and alive. WoW is just snipping from 9km+ and waiting for the RNG to either citadel or HE set on fire.
Although I will agree that people are 100% less saltier than in WOT. But the player base is much smaller. I tend to end up in games comprised from 40-60% actual bots.

I quite liked the turning pink for TK . WoT should change it from blue to pink.

It really doesn't take much effort to realize that one game launched in 2010 and the other one in 2015 or 16.

My thoughts are the same. 

I imagine it to be like playing a team of arty vs another team of arty in WoT lol
