Captains!

World of Warships is constantly evolving, with new ships and maps appearing in the game on a regular basis. We also add a lot of other content, such as new technologies intended to boost performance and enhance the quality of the audio and graphics.

In order to maintain that level of productivity, we unfortunately have to cease support for macOS.

The popularity of this operating system (OS) is quite low among our players. Aside from that, this OS has a number of specific features that take a lot of time and effort to manage on the part of our Dev Team. This has a negative impact on game development and hampers our ability to add new content and improvements. Bearing all these factors in mind, we've decided to cease support for macOS.

Support for the macOS operating system will cease with the release of Update 0.10.0. World of Warships will perform as intended on computers running Windows 7 x64 / 8.1 / 10.

We're informing you in advance of these planned changes. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding. We would also like to share a couple of possible options that might allow macOS players to continue enjoying World of Warships:

•    World of Warships is available via GeForce NOW. For more info, go to https://www.nvidia.com/geforce-now/
•    Players with macOS can try using Boot Camp to launch the Windows operating system on their device and play World of Warships. For more info, navigate to https://support.apple.com/HT201468.

Please note: Boot Camp is not officially supported by Wargaming, and we do not guarantee that World of Warships will run correctly when using it.

As a new World of Warship player on a mac, I am extremely disappointed in the discontinuation of support for mac users. I used to play computer games growing up but for years I haven't played because I couldn't find a game I really enjoyed but that all changed in the spring when I found World of Warships. I had no idea such a game existed for my community as a mac owner but I was so excited to finally find a game I enjoyed! I started engaging with the community of players, loved the historical feel of the game, and appreciated all the work the developers put into making it a worthwhile game. I even started putting my own money into the game purchasing a premium ship not too long ago. Now I feel like the past few months I've put into this game is completely wasted not to count the hours I spent watching videos trying to learn the game. Even more than that I now regret putting my own money into a game I will no longer be able to enjoy. Bootcamp is not an option for me due to its large space requirements and I would have to put more money into setting up a system to where I could play the game. I would prefer to put that money directly into the game. 

I am asking and begging the developers to please reconsider this horrible decision! Let us enjoy your game!

Yes, I'm pissed off too. Luckily I haven't spent too much on premium ships. Their support for Mac users was not too good anyway - there were quite a few occasions when the game kept crashing after updates. At one stage I didn't play for a month or two because it would crash whenever I was in queue for a battle or just wouldn't open at all. In spite of those problems I was hooked. Actually I get so involved sometimes that friends and family were telling me I should stop playing before I have a heart attack. 😄
