The Digital World of WoWS is inferior to the Real World

NoZoupForYou makes an excellent point here in this video where he details how awesome it is to BUILD YOUR OWN SHIP MODEL rather than the digital one in game (I of course and referring to the Puerto Rico and its scandal) 

I pray that everyone who has common sense will understand that the digital world is MEANINGLESS.  It can all disappear in the blink of an eye (e.g. your computer breaks down, the Internet is knocked out by a solar flare, your WiFI connection is destroyed by a thunderstorm, etc.)   

And I hope that everyone realizes that is it FAR BETTER and FAR MORE ENJOYABLE to spend quality time with family and friends and RUN A REAL LIFE than grinding away for digital ships.

 

Thank you Zoup, for making this video and saying what needs to be said.

So ture. My regreat from playing vidio games is it does nothing and produces nothing.

It leaves me empty. Making a model is an accomplishment.

I purchased and built the Cobi Bismarck model last year.  Despite these kits being woefully overpriced (just like digital ships), it still provides a certain degree of enjoyment and/or entertainment (just like digital ships).

Video games are really just forms of entertainment....but entertainment can be fleeting.

Nothing beats the LEGO Millenium Falcon with 5174 parts. Ok, the Tja Mahal set, but that's no ship.

Wish I had the patience for making them so great looking when I was young. Now I didn't have the time for it. My wife would get nuclear if I would add ship models to the 800+ books

I guess you could call my modeling time a "perk" of getting blown up by multiple IEDs.

I have all the time in the world to work on these. If I had a job, there's no way I would be able to complete even one in any amount of detail.

Each step on the Constitution model takes 2 to 3 days.

I also highly recommend building plastic scale models of the ships you love. For the same price of a premium ship or less you can have an exact scale replica to place on your shelf. Don't fool yourself. Scale models these days can be close to museum quality. Start with the smaller 1/700 scale and as you get better move up to the 1/350 and 1/200 scale ships.

Here are some samples of what you can do:

Agree with all of the above posters. I have the Missouri, Yamato, and Fletcher sitting above my desk in 1/350 scale. Still have an i-400 to put together too. The Tamiya kits are top notch for these, and the biggest problem I have is finding space to put any more! (that's one of the few advantages to a digital boat collection).

True, but so can using your digital model to sink somebody else's lol.

I get the idea though.

Myself, I watch very little TV. (basically just the odd really good series or movie) I prefer video games, because they're interactive. (which is why I prefer PC gaming to modelling, which I used to do a lot)

I also prefer interactions with family and friends, which is why I limit my gaming time to when those are unavailable, and why I would never even consider an event grind. I just play, and get what I get.

 Yup building models are cheaper than buying the digital ones

True, but earning the tech tree ones is cheaper still....

  True but some of these I've had since I was a kid and my children are really looking forward to having them collect dust on their shelves when I die who knows maybe these will be around a 100 years from now lol
