Yes, control is simple but... the technique to sailing a ship is not simple.

Also, this is a team game, tactics are need to be made. But it is not simple to make tactics too.

I enjoy WoT but thought WoWp was a massive disappointment.  Very glad to find that WoWs is on track to be a great addition for Wargamming.

 

 

 


 

One thing I was surprised to find though was the very low numbers of testers on the Asia server given how long applications have been disabled for.

Can anyone tell me what the ping is like from Australia?  I get around the 130/140 on WoT.  Is it similar for WoWs and is ping more important?  Toying with the idea of buying into the cbt....

the servers are next to each other. I get 76ms from Perth, You should get 130ms from where ever.

First impression?

I really love this game compared to WoT, I mainly use cruisers, (cleveland class is hart.) but some of my best games so far where in DDs! (sank 2 BBs <3) however CVs are the most difficult ship for me to manage, barely gets any kills, but i love i support the team by forcing BBs to dodge my torps, but most of the time when a DD spots me w/o escort, goodbye. xD. really like this game.

It's about 20-30ms higher for me (160-170 for WoT, 200ish for WoWs) and others have reported similar. My lag indicator is solid red the whole time, but I suspect it might be coded to show as red if ping exceeds 200ms. It's hard to get a consistent reading though as it depends on what the wife and kids are using/doing, PS3 running netflix, 2 ipads, 1 nexus tablet, 2 smartphones and a 2nd PC and school holidays = variable ping. But I'm pretty sure when everyone else is in bed and everything besides my rig shut down I still get higher ping than I did during peak hours on WoTSEA.

 

On WoTNA I get 250-300 plus and still a green light most of the time.

Cheers for that and how does the game play?  For WoT my ping has always been fine however WoWs looks to be a bit more long distance firing so I assume ping is more important?  I know it's not mega money to buy into the CBT but hey...  I'd prefer to not waste the cash if I don't have to.

Personally I live in HK (~40-70 ping), the game ususlly play pretty smoothly, but sometimes there are still some Micro-lag. Don't worry though, I am pretty sure the devs will polish the game.
