World of Warships

World of Warships is a free-to-play naval warfare-themed massively multiplayer online game produced and published by Wargaming, following the earlier games World of Tanks and World of Warplanes. Players can battle others at random or play cooperative battle types against bots or an advanced player versus environment (PvE) battle mode. For the most skilled players, two seasonal competitive modes are also available.

World of Warships was originally released for Microsoft Windows in 2015. The computer version was followed by the iOS and Android mobile game titled World of Warships Blitz in 2018. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console versions, titled World of Warships: Legends, followed in 2019 and released on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in April 2021.

World of Warships is a tactical, slow-paced shooter with three basic types of armament: ship artillery, torpedoes, and aircraft. The gameplay is team-based, and allows players to work as a team. Within a team divisions can be established to allow a group of up to three players to join and fight battles together. The player’s team can fight against other players (PvP) or against the AI (PvE) in several battle types.

Co-op battles, where a team of players face off against a team of AI-controlled bots. Credit and experience rewards earned in co-operative play are notably lower than those earned in Random Battles, which are the most popular battle type in World of Warships. Captains are dropped into a game full of other players, according to the matchmaking system, with a majority of Random Battles being 12v12 battles. Scenarios pit a team of players against increasingly difficult waves of AI-controlled opponents in operations with unique objectives. Players are allowed to queue solo, but are encouraged to gather their friends into a division to attempt scenarios; assembling a full division of 7 players will greatly increase the chances of success.

Ranked Battles are a seasonal battle type and have restrictions to certain tiers of ships. A season of Ranked Battles is divided into sprints with the duration of 1-3 weeks each and comprises three Leagues – Bronze, Silver and Gold. Ranked battles involve players progressing up a ladder-style ranking system in each League from a high rank (such as “Rank 10”) towards a low rank, with Rank 1 being the pinnacle of the ladder. Clan Battles are a special battle type, only available at specific times and restricted to certain tiers of ships. A team is formed from within a single Clan by at least one officer.
