Fantastic review! Unfortunately, I'm one of those newbies, however I've been following World of Warships for a while now because of Jingles, so I do have a pretty good idea of what I'm doing. Hell, I didn't get my first defeat until I had won 6 times in a row, with some pretty high credit and xp rolls too. I'm falling in love with this game tbh, it's one of the funnest games I've played in a long time. Plus its an mmo from wargaming, so there is a great community behind it. Personally, I've been going down the Jap line (atm I have the Umikaze, Tenryu, Kuma and Kawachi) as I like the long range torpedo aspect. I have only gotten up to the St Louis and South Carolina in the Americans though. I'm not liking how there is only 6 port slots, but I guess that's the same with WoT so I'll have to make do for now I guess. Anyway, good review and great game.
