Today’s the day that eager captains can officially launch their naval careers as World of Warships leaves beta behind and joins the sea of released games. That is reason enough for MassivelyOP’s MJ to hop on a ship and face the enemy in battle! And this time around, she has the full selection of ships to show off. Join us live at 8:00 p.m. to get a peek at all the vessels in the game.

What: World of Warships
Who: MJ Guthrie
When: 8:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, September 17th, 2015

The show is over now, but we’ve embedded it here just for you. Don’t forget to check out past streams and playlists posted to our videos collection!

One thing you cant really do is just start at tier one and work through tier 10 as a free player. Once you hit tire 8 every battle to gain xp will be a loss in money. A free player has to do a lot of lower tier grinding to make money.
Buying one of the lower tier premium ships really cuts the painful grinding out of the game.

dellis78741 There are no restrictions.. There are some premium ships like WOT has premium tanks but other than that you can unlock all the normal ships by just playing.

Yes that would take a long time but you can still do it.

dellis78741 The vast majority of ships can be obtained via F2P.  There are a few exceptions dealing with special ships, but they usually have a F2P counterpart, and the pay ships just give a bonus to in-game money gained, typically not to performance in any way.

The case in point is the current Tirpitz, German battleship.  When the German tree launches, it will include the Bismark (probably) which is the sister ship of the Tirpitz, and will be obtainable just via grinding.

I like WG’s F2P philosophy.  It’s not Pay to Win, it is Pay to Grind Less.

Using real world money, you can pay to transfer experience from ships you love to play to those you hate to play in order to move up the tiers.

Hope that makes sense!

It’s not clear from the site just what you can do f2p, and what requires cash shop purchases.  What grade of ships can you progress to, for example.  I assume MJ had carte blanc access to the full range of ships to play with.

How cool that the Massively yacht can now sail around sinking others!
