I was wondering which of these games are better, I have them both though. If you have one or both of these please tell me your opinion on which of these games is better. If you're not familiar with Naval Action, search "Naval Action" on google or go to it's official website.

It is widely considered "bad form" to mention, let alone recommend, another competitor's game on a competing forum.  Don't expect your thread to last very long.

The only major things the two games have in common is that there are ships, those ships have guns and there's a progression system.

How can you compare a age of sail game with a more modern navy game.

 

Other than the fact they are both online PC games that involve ships, the two really have nothing in common.

 

Edit:  More or less ninja'd by a cat again.

They are both naval games but that is all they have in common. Naval Action has quite a few RPG elements where WoWS is focused on the tactical combat. Neither is better than the other, they are both what they are trying to be.

Hadn't heard of that game, but went over to steam and looked.  I'm not really for sailing ships, and the reviews lately appear quite mixed.  And for $40 I'd rather spend that on WoWS instead on ships I like.

"Bad form" my [edited]. It's purely WG dealing with potential competition. 

 

They're free to make whatever rules they want in their forum, but don't describe this as an "etiquette" thing. Lots of other forums are not nearly so restrictive.

I have and play both games. That said, they're apples to oranges. You can't really compare the two. I will say that both games are doing fairly well at accomplishing what they set out to do.

Having played both, not really a comparison. I personally enjoy warships more.

I have extensive experience in Naval action, and I can tell you, they have almost nothing in common. Naval action is based in the age of sail, with big sailing warships made of timber and the sweat of its crew, where WoWS is based during WWII with warships made of steal, blood, an can sail without worry of the wind direction.

 

They're both fun, in their own ways, so its really up to what you like best atm.

 

For example, Naval action has the oldest still commissioned warship still afloat in the US navy that has ever sunk another ship in combat. The USS Constitution. A ship that WoWS will most likely never see. However, the size of the world and length of battles in Naval action are FAR longer and bigger than in WoWS, so again, all down to personal taste.

 

Personally, I love both games. I have the Constitution in Naval action and the Arizona in WoWS, my two favorite naval vessels of all time. =3

It is often considered bad form by the forum users regardless of the forum policies simply because these kinds of open ended threads tend to devolve into fanboyism on all sides.  It's like showing up in another country and asking the first person you see whether you think their country or your home country is better.  First of all it's subjective, secondly it's borderline impolite in this context and outright stupid in the real world.  Some people value getting along with others more than they value stirring the pot.

 

It's different if somebody is asking a meta question about how a particular game mechanic could be improved if it was more similar (or different) from how it works in another game, but if you don't see why it's good etiquette to tread carefully I'll have to assume that you're new to video games and the Internet.  :sceptic:
