Saw kind of an interesting ad for this on Youtube a minute ago.

It was a pre-main-video advert and, unfortunately, I can't find it (it's probably out there somewhere, though).

It features a moc FPS where a player is attempting to navigate around - what I believe is - a destroyer. As he makes his way down the starboard side deck, the guy can't find anyone to shoot at (and seems to be getting more desperate). Eventually, clearly flummoxed, he gets knocked overboard by the blast of the forward turret, and the voiceover mocks him and his puny assault rifle.

I've been pretty critical of Wargaming lately, but I have to give credit where it's due: this was a fairly effective pitch. It also correctly attempted to sell the game for what it is: a shooter at sea (albeit a bit less twitchy than your average run and gun melee). Did want to at least share feedback.

I'm surprised you havent seen this before. At first I thought it was a mobile company stealing the WoWs name for their game and then laughed when I realized what it was.

Now they just need to bring back the "What?!  You haven't played World of Warships yet?!  Why the hell not?!" ad that tells you all the things to do to be useless in the game and I'll be happy.

It's still there.  Saw it last night again, in fact.

Could someone put in a link because I can't find it for the life of me.

This is not the commercial you are looking for.

That ad has been around for a while now.  Saw it sometime last year.  Thought it was amusing.

I remember this ad, but I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be a parody of CS:GO on the USS Texas map. The turret actually knocks the player overboard.
