Today gyus I am preenting you World Of Warships Blitz published by Wargaming Group. It’s kind of a crutch any time one explains or reviews a mobile game and says “it’s kind of like x but with y instead.” Yet there are cases where those kinds of comparisons are more than appropriate, and World of Warships Blitz is one of those. Wargaming already gave us a good idea of what to expect with World of Tanks Blitz , and if you substitute water for land and boats for tanks, you get the idea pretty quickly. Let’s say, for the sake of argument, you’ve never played World of Tanks Blitz or any of Wargaming’s free-to-play multiplayer military battlers. If this is your entry point, that might be a good thing, as life on the sea is all you’ll know. World of Warships Blitz gives you a pretty nice tutorial as far as how to steer your ship, put the engines in forward and reverse and fire off broadsides toward your enemies. It’s definitely a little trickier than operating a vehicle on dry land — and maybe one of the rare examples of the developer’s fondness for realism works against one of its games — but the tap controls for the throttle and helm are easy to figure out, and it doesn’t take long to develop a comfort level for using one finger on your right hand to look around or fire weapons while your left hand mans the wheel.
World of Warships Blitz Gameplay and Review
Any jitters you have about being a first-time captain are made easier by the presence of Co-op Battles, where you can team with other players to take on a fleet of AI-controlled warships. Since most Wargaming titles throw you to the wolves in multiplayer right away, that’s a welcome addition, especially considering the steeper learning curve for ship-to-ship combat. Still, the bread and butter of the gameplay is the Random Battles mode, featuring 7v7 battles between teams of roughly even ships. You can join a battle at any time and expect a wait of less than a minute, and the matchmaking system is pretty good at making sure one team doesn’t outclass the other in terms of equipment. It’s also possible to join matches as a team of up to three players, so you can battle alongside your friends if that’s something that floats your boat . Battles can be won either by destroying the other team completely before all your side’s ships are sunken, which happens in the vast majority of matches, or by becoming the first team to reach 1000 points by a combination of damaging your opponents and capturing and holding certain points on the water. Some maps have a central, contested point between the two sides, while others have targets deep in enemy territory that need to be taken over. Either way, a battle lasts only a few minutes, and while you don’t respawn upon defeat, you can leave a battle and start up another one in one of your other ships while you wait to learn the outcome.
