1) I'd take a lot longer to reload guns (probably).

2) Just about everything would have better range (Yamato had a 50km maximum firing range...)

3) As you said, AA and secondaries would work hopefully better.

4) Everything would get there final reft (i.e. USS IOWA wih Tomahawk missiles, Cleveland wih missiles of some description and the Furutaka wih her 1941-1942 refit).

Poor Yamato, she would be lucky if she hit anything

you would have to start the game 3 hours before you play so you can light off the boilers and bring on steam

 

And if carriers were in the battle, it would only be them who would fire off shots since the surface combatants won't come close enough to fight each other.

No len, you need a week, to scout and find enemy. And to cruise to it

1. We'll all use HE shells (because Len said Naval guns use HE shells, I believe him because he's a navy person :P )

 

2. IJN Torpedoes will laugh at you, while leaving a giant gaping hole on your ship while you're dumbfounded because you didn't see anything streaking on the water

 

3. You'll be frustrated at the USN Torpedoes for not detonating upon impact.

 

4. HE's will mostly knock every AA guns or secondary guns you have on board.

To steer it into gamey stuff rather than the logistical implausibility of the idea:

Matchmaker would be a shambles, because a realistic game would have realistic IJN vs USN sides, which would mean we're looking at horrible MM for the IJN "omg they have a dozen ships for our one, and they're all 2+ tiers above ours" "Don't worry we have Yamato and Musashi" "They have a dozen carriers hurling 1000+ planes at us!"

:teethhappy:

people will complain that IJN torpedo is way too OP

 

Until an escort carrier shoots at your heavy cruiser with her dinky little gun and rocks your torpedo storage enough to blow it up huehuehuehue

 

Edit: Ooh, that's another thing: RNG WILL BE EVEN MORE RUTHLESS.

2 months later, sunk by us submarine, position 10 miles off the Japanese coast.

 

Best game ever!

Myoukou, Nachi, Haguro, Ashigara, Mogami, Mikuma, Suzuya and Kumano say "Hi".

New Orleans class of 7 ships say hi back, as does the Baltimore class of 14 ships... oh and the 3 Des Moines (if we leave out the 9 ships cancelled).

 

Not to mention the 24 Essexes saying hello as well.

Let's throw out this realistic WoWS idea and go in for the real interesting idea:

Fleet of Fog ships /o/

You have to refuel your ships and planes

USN DD can only fire torpedoes once, then had to go to port to reload

Ammo is limited so every single round counts

You had to consider sea conditions and coriolis effect when aiming your guns

YOU HAVE TO FACE THE WIND BEFORE YOU CAN LAUNCH YOUR PLANES AND HAVE TO LOWER YOUR SPEED AT THAT :trollface:

Imagine walking around the ship in first person mode,ordering your crew to perform a certain task,getting ready to sail and stuff and walk to the captain's bridge..

 

That would be awesome xD
