Does anyone ever see Bismarck gets detonated by Hood?

 

Please tell me you crippled her rudder with a torp.

I love these historical posts, arguments, and jokes. I really do. I hope you know our devs care about the history of these ships, but we have to add features to the game in a way that makes sense.

I blame Twitch for labeling WoWs as a SIM.

Sorry to be the bringer of bad news Sail but it predates twitch.

Like WoT before her, WoWs has been marketed at every step of the way as a 'Sim' without actually using that word.

Strong use of the word 'historical' and the way in which it has been advertised gives the impression of a sim game.

Very minimal use of the word 'arcade' further confuses some people.

Granted anyone with any form of game type understanding knows straight away it is an arcade game but many people within the playerbase still argue about things in game in relation to 'historical accuracy'.

Twitch probably doesn't help the situation at all but this has been an issue in WoT for a decade.

I'm not sure why they're so hazy on owning the arcade element, in my mind it's far better than a sim as the gameplay is far quicker and more fun. But that's a common issue in marketing, so many companies don't have the balls to 'own it' in relation to their own products.

Although that same thing can be easily applied to people and all sorts.

People are inherently forgiving, no one's perfect but they hate things/people who pretend to be something they're not.

For example, I'm an intelligent, decent player who clearly has a massive ego and an inflated opinion of my own comedy...

So what? Screw you all, I find me funny and I'm all that matters... 😉

Get it? :Smile_trollface:

Point is, somehow I get on with most people despite those objectively annoying traits, it's because I own it.

WoT and WoWS should own being arcade games and advertise around it but they don't. They use cinematic ads, historical things with the occasional collab thrown in for good measure.

Subsequently they give off the impression of a sim with some possible arcade elements instead of the other way around.

No egos were harmed in the construction of this post...

I saw a Akatsuki gun down a Atlanta about a year or so ago.

Maybe that was me? I did gun down an Atlanta with a gun build Akatsuki around that time. :cap_book:

Not too sure, I can't remember the name  of the player or the map I saw it on.
