For those of you who can't access the site, I'll paste some relevant quotes below. I'll try to keep them in context as much as I can.

 

 What is important is that we proved that our concept works. The core gameplay is fun enough to a wide variety of the audience and we can safely say that nobody expected such a polished game in this stage of development. And of course, we managed to launch the Closed Beta with bells on!

Speaking of Closed Beta, we are confident we will not be stuck in this period for long. Just a few cosmetic changes and additions, some gameplay features and so on.

As for the OBT, or Open Beta Test, the emphasis is on the “O” rather than the “T” as our goal here is to deliver a near-release quality and let our community enjoy the game. We will, however, still be gathering feedback before the game is out in the wild.

 

 In Closed Alpha, a huge part of the development team’s attention was focused on game client and server performance optimization. We knew that if the weaker spectrum of computers could not run World of Warships, we would cut off 40% of our potential audience from enjoying the game. By the CBT launch, we can definitely say that it is possible to play WoWS on PCs with 32-bit Windows systems, meaning Windows XP users can get in on the action as well. The next step is making sure that we keep this up for the rest of the development.

 

 Besides the premium ships, we are planning to introduce the missing tech tree branches for USA and Japan (American battleships and Japanese aircraft carriers). The internal upgrades system will undergo some changes and then we will be testing the hell out of some new features we are planning such as improved projectiles, advanced fighter plane mechanics and armour piercing bombs.

 

 "During the CBT we plan to introduce first premium ships, including German Bismarck and British Warspite for example. By OBT, we will have a whole bunch of new ships, but we cannot say more at the moment." – Vladimir Gremitskiy, head of art department, on introduction of new ships

 

We will continue developing and enhancing unique abilities for ships (such as smoke screens for destroyers, AA barrage for cruisers and additional repair option for battleships). Those were very well-received by the players, so we’re planning to go further in that direction.

We will also touch the visual side of the ships in terms of additional options like camouflages and flags – we’ve come up with something a bit unusual here, but we think our players are going to love it! Won’t be as straightforward as in other games…

It is a little harder with new maps. We are already very close to finish developing technologies we need for maps, and as soon as all priorities from the tech side are met, we will try to add more maps. We too want more maps!

 

 

Apologies for the weird black highlight in some of the quotes. Couldn't get the text colour to change.

I can soon play in 60 fps with my Potato PC :D

 

 

 

Or get the raspberry Pi 2B and see how many you need to link up to play it ;) .. would be a neat little project.

IJN Carriers huh?

 

Guessing that Akagi will be on tier 6, Kaga on tier 7 and Taihou on tier 9. :v

 

And how about tier 8? In my opinion, Akagi will be in tier 7, Kaga tier 8, and Taihou tier 9

I always though that Akagi and Kaga will be on the higher tier, I guess I was wrong :D

 

Tier X IJN CV would probably be Shinano? (due to her Yamato hull heritage?)

This is WG, needs more fantasy options.

Sure, its not carrier borne, and the design pretty much precludes it ever being used on a carrier, but who are we to let facts get in the way of an OP prototype?

Strange that you guys put kaga and akagi at such high tier when the shoukaku design are better than those 2.

 

not me...
