Posted by Nicholas Tylwalk on January 25th, 2018

Which ships become your go-to choices in World of Warships Blitz can be something of a personal preference. You might want to work through one country's tech tree in particular or just have a certain class that becomes your specialty.

As always the mad PvP scientists at Wargaming have given you plenty of options, something at which they excel. In fact, it might be too many choices when you're just getting into the swing of things.

Ahoy mates! It's time to set out on the high seas for some PvP battles, and ... sorry, actually, World of Warships Blitz has nothing to do with pirates. Let's start over.

World of Warships Blitz is the latest from Wargaming, and like its sibling, World of Tanks Blitz, is a scaled-down mobile version of one of the company's multiplayer PC titles. As the name implies, it features 7v7 naval combat in ships that once did battle in the world's oceans in real life.

World of Tanks Blitz Hands-On Video and Impressions: It Came From Canada, Denmark Edition!

Posted by Carter Dotson on May 7th, 2014

Wargaming has one of the biggest games on the planet right now, and it's one you might not have played: World of Tanks. This free-to-play tank warfare game has had over a million concurrent players on PC, and it's starting extend its tendrils out beyond the PC to include mobile. World of Tanks: Blitz takes the formula of putting tank-driving players on to the battlefield, with the objective of capturing points or wiping out the other team, in small maps with fast-paced gameplay. The game is in a soft-launch phase in Europe, including Denmark. So, I whipped up some frikadeller and rugbrød for this It Came From Canada: Denmark Edition!

Blitz is an apt subtitle for this, since it puts players into the game pretty much immediately. Once players register with either Game Center or a Wargaming.net account, the tutorial starts. This lets players get an idea of the movement, aiming, and firing controls, before players are set off into their first real battles.

The tutorial actually does a great job at briskly setting up the game and showing how the mechanics work: a single joystick controls movement, with buttons for turning in place and arrows around the tank indicating where it will move to.

Though players do start off playing in real battles, this doesn't mean that the learning is over. As players progress, the game introduces ammo buying, tank upgrading, and more. It just does so in a way that is spread out over time, and doesn't overwhelm players with information all at once. Importantly, it lets players actually play and learn for themselves.

Even playing with non-US players via both wi-fi and LTE the game has performed exceptionally well, with latency having little effect. While the game does manage to put players into games with more experienced and better-equipped opponents, I didn't feel helpless. The game does require some intelligence built-in since there's not really any voice chatting, and with such a diverse international audience playing, having just a text chat option might be better anyway.

There's no actual energy mechanic, but tanks can't be used until a battle ends - though players do have multiple tanks. Credits (the soft currency) can be spent on more ammunition, and gold (the hard currency) can be spent to buy different kinds of ammunition, additional tank slots, and more along with premium accounts, which grant more experience and credits for certain amounts of time. How well this model works on mobile as far as money-making remains to be seen. There are at least enough credits handed out to keep ammo supplied, but just how 'free' this game will be remains to be seen. As well, will the more casual market be willing to jump into such a gamer's game, even if it's fast-paced? These are interesting questions I'm curious to see the answers to when the game is eventually released worldwide.
