Yes I am a closed beta tester and the game play is great. Wish it would go open. Really love the Cleveland cruiser. 12 6" are awesome.

Yes it's a great game so far. Much better than the WoWP they produced. This was worth the wait.
Working down the US cruisers and debating purchasing HMS Warspite.

I've been looking at player vids of some of this, and Warspite did surprisingly poorly and was destroyed although in the hands of an experienced gamer/beta tester, even after the player purchased a number of upgrades.

The problem with this game is the same one that afflicts World of Tanks and all of the others - pure inaccuracy. And like all other games of this type, the goal is to get players to purchase bigger and more heavily armed fighting machines and more and more upgrades in order to "win".

What is the purpose behind endlessly cruising around artificial islands in groups made up of both enemies and allies alike instead of using traditional, historic navy forces to fight the battles of history like Jutland, for example? Where did the real navies get those "upgrades"? And how can any ship survive running at full speed into an island, and then back away undamaged and resume the fight?

Well, depending on how accurately they modelled the ships, all the old British BB's are really pretty crappy on paper. The deck armor in a word sucks. The belts are thin, narrow, and mostly submerged at typical displacements.
The 15" Mk I gun is a low velocity piece with pretty crappy ballistics other than it is very reliable and has pretty good accuracy.

I would think a grounding would be pretty much fatal to a ship. You are stuck almost every time and if you ground hard or on rocks and the like you end up with major flooding.

Well it's a game guys so... if you're worried about accuracy then don't play it.

Warships looks fun, I just can't bring myself to supporting a dev with this type of pricing model. A single ship alone is the price of most full games, then once the beta is over I'll have to pay a monthly fee on top of that and still have other in-game content that requires purchasing. These guys are too greedy for me.

World of Warships will be Free-to-Play like World of Tanks and World of Warplanes.
