World of Warships launches September 17th

If you’ve been waiting until the official release to launch your naval career in World of Warships, mark your calendar: In two weeks, the game goes live.

Wargaming has announced that after a successful open beta, its naval warfare MMO will officially and formally throw open its doors on Thursday, September 17th. Those interested in captaining various historical battleships, cruisers, aircraft carriers, and destroyers — such as Warspite, Tirpitz, Midway, Aurora, and Yamato — will have two complete tech trees from the U.S. and Japan to work through. Additionally, a number of ships from Germany, the U.S.S.R., and the U.K. will be available, with more nations slated to join in the war later this year. In total, over 80 different ships will be available to help you set sail and decimate your enemies.

I just want a game where I can dive bomb player ships in my Dauntless while listening to Holy Diver. Is this too much to ask?

melissaheather eLdritchMD  If anything they get shot down to fast at least for the us ones. You have less sqauadrons but the ones you have are supposed to me more robust.   Dosent seem the case us planes seem to go down way fast.  The horrible way they were matching carriers against higher tiers didn’t help at all either.   That is supposed to be fixed in the next patch at least.

I love the maps with lots of little islands.   It’s great fun to launch torpedoes so that they are a nasty surprise waiting for ships just as they appear into your view, usually sneaking around the corner of the island themselves.   But then it’s too late…

Man.. the smoke, guns, flames, carnage, is awesome when you are opening up on your enemy with some big guns on a cruiser or something.   makes the floor rumble from the sound.    The games take longer to play out than World of Tanks, so I don’t play nearly as many games per session, but i still want to get my daily bonuses for my ships.

eLdritchMD Shooting down aircraft pointless?  Have you even played the game?  You shoot them down to prevent scouting, bombing, and torpedo attacks from the air.

If only this were an open world game, this would be a megahit game.

sorry but the game isn’t ready… no clan system, matchmaking is still rather questionable, balance is nowhere near solid, aircraft carriers are still a bit of a mess, shooting down aircraft is still rather pointless….

too early. Play it, enjoy yourself but don’t buy anything until they put in some more man hours.

Happy that the game has made it to a launch state as I have had a lot of fun with World of Warships.
I do hope that they have the British and German fleets ready to set sail on or shortly after the launch though.  While there are a lot of ships for the new people to have a crack at it would be nice if those two fleets were added to shake things up a little for those of us who have been around for a while :-)

Really enjoyed the Beta phase and look forward to it going Live.  Balance has definitely improved since I first started messing with it a few months ago.

Really enjoyable game, I feel like they should have added 1 or two more countries and fully fleshed out their fleet first.  It feels a bit sparse atm.

Awesome.  Really enjoyed the beta.   We need more nations though, and more maps. 
There is nothing quite like seeing a warship taken out by the torpedoes you launched just before it killed you.   As your ship slowly sinks down into the briny deeps, seeing those 6000HP collisions and your opponent helpless to avoid them is satisfying.   I really enjoy playing Destroyers.

The sinking animations are incredible.   It’s your own little Titanic movie.

Ugh.  I don’t know whether to get sucked in by Wargaming’s monstrosities or not again.  I fuggin’ love boats but I hate their p2w Gold Rounds.
