Greetings and Salutations,

Curious as to what folks use laptops to play?!

What type do you have and how well does the game run off a laptop?

 

I am out of town many days with my job and wanted to know how well 

your laptop plays the game.

Of course a decent wifi will also make or break the experience.

My main PC is a desktop but I have a $500 laptop for when I'm on the road. It's a Ryzen 5 3500u with Vega 8 graphics, 8gb ram (2gb shared), 15" screen and 256gb SSD, it runs this game on medium settings at 1080p at like 40 ~ 50 fps, which is entirely playable.

I play on both...

But my laptop has a geforce mx150 2gb, and my desk have a 1070ti. So the laptop is just when i cant access the desktop.

WoWs runs well i dont use low specs as i have seen other people doing.

You dont truly a real wi fi. I used to play on 4G when i had problem with my network company for about 2 months.

 

I also have on laptop 24 GB and a samsung SSD.

I too travel for work for weeks at a time.

I have a HP Omen I use to game on the road:

i7-9750H

16GB DDR4

1660 Ti

I got the thing for frankly a steal as an open box at micro center.  It was friggin $899 in January of 2020 (and of course we no longer travel for work as of the end of feb).  I more than likely would not have bought it, had I predicted the future.  I still use it at home more for dicking around on the internet while watching a movie or something, I sold my other laptop (which wasnt a gamer) when I bought this one.

It basically plays most everything I play great.  Ships isn't super demanding anyway.

The biggest issue on the road, as you said is WiFi.  Didn't really have a ton of issues with ships (or maybe it just hides bad wifi better).  Rocket League on the otherhand was unplayable due to the wifi.

Upgraded wifi at hotels doesn't matter either.  Whatever hardware they are working with its just crap for gaming online, I think they might be on an old wifi standard, reminds me of when I tried to game on wifi in the old Wireless-G days, gaming over wifi should be fine with wireless N .  I usually end up using my mobile hotspot, it performs better.

Hotspot with 4G cellular with 25gb/mo data that I've never gone over. No latency issues.

Old laptop was Dell Inspiron with 7th gen I-5, 1050ti with 3gb vram, 8gb sodimm ram, 256gb ssd. Played 1080p with settings high at 40-50 fps.

New laptop is HP Omen with 10th gen I-5, 1660ti with 6gb vram, 16gb sodimm ram, 512gb ssd. Plays 1920 with settings maxed at 80fps.

Be mindful of rapidly diminishing returns with regard to performance-per-dollar spent on hardware for this game. It doesn't need a $2-3000 laptop to play well.

I've got an Acer Nitro-5 Laptop that plays WOWs just fine.

I created a forum topic about it, a while back.

While you can play WOWS on both,  laptop or PC... If a choice was needed to be made to play WOWS, I would suggest people to go PC and never a laptop.

A few reasons...

  • If you need the mobility to sacrifice performance.. Then ok get a laptop.
  • The CPU/GPU in a laptop are the decreased "mobile" version to the original PC GPU/CPU components.
  • IF you live in a very hot and humid place. Dont get a laptop.
  • If you do get a laptop for gaming, make sure you have an external battery over internal one...
  • Laptop batteries are prone to warping or cause explosion under excessive heat. 
    • This sucks because gaming creates a lot of heat and stress on a system.

In summery, if you're chasing the creme de la creme gains in the best 4k experience gaming... Go PC.

IF you want the mobility with sacrificed performance... Then get a laptop..

I need a good computer for work, a good laptop and desktop aren't in the budget right now, so laptop it is for me. It's got a 1050ti with a i7-7700 processor and 16GB RAM. I have an SSD for the OS, but run off a HDD for space. It runs WOWS just fine, Very High settings at 50-60 FPS pushed to an external monitor at 1140 resolution. Only downside is the fans really spool up when running, the thing sounds like a jet plane taking off. For cooling purposes I would like to have a desktop, but hardware wise a laptop can run WOWS just fine.

The specs on any of these should be more than sufficient for WoWs

The rest of it is up to you.

Do you care about size or weight?
If no, then go for 15.6in or 17in
If yes, then go for a 14in

Do you want more than 1080p?
1080p is the minimum standard on these gaming laptops, but some do offer 1440p and 4k as an option

Other stuff
Battery life
Noise under full load
Price

For home play a desktop is the best option and with the relatively low requirements for this game a fairly inexpensive laptop can do well. However, for me the ergonomics of laptops make play uncomfortable but I don't need to travel.

I've always played on a gaming laptop cause recliners are awesome to sit in while playing. New rig I bought last year was MSI GS 65 Stealth. Less than 2k costs, and NVIDIA RTX 2060 is awesome.

Yeah, I always bring at least a mouse with me. No way I'm playing with a track pad.

I hate laptop keyboards but a mouse would be a must for me too.

My Lenovo V15-ADA has a decent-ish keyboard, for a mid-range budget laptop. It suffices, if barely.

For people that travel regularly that would be great except for more stuff to carry but my traveling even before the plague was pretty limited so my Chromebook worked just fine for email and surfing forums.

Keyboard are good on a laptop, (mind you the quality is not like the durable ol keyboard of yesteryear). Then you don't need to by an extra keyboard.

The  USB-mouse mandatory for those not use to the horrible mic track of a laptop.

ASUS UX550VE ZenBook Pro Laptop - 15" monitor; i7-7700HQ @2.8 GHz; 16GB; GTX 1050ti 4GB

Both play the game at a very comfortable level.  I get 50-70 FPS on both at medium settings.

I use a Nitro 5 Laptop with 16g ram. Plays the game fantastic on Maximum graphic settings. I also generally get between 75 and 120 fps (I set the config file for 144). I have gotten as high as 130's before.

I do have the computer on a cooling pad to keep the temps down.
