 This topic if about so how you found world of warships and your story up until now. details about your time at the game and forums. I will start first.


 

Back in August 2013 I was looking around for a game about ships. I searched for a while then I found world of warships. shortly afterwards I created an account because I was really exited about the game. I learned quickly that the game was still not even in alpha but I still wanted to learn more about the game. I found the pre release wiki which was very informative and hats of to the creator of it. so I was really hoping to get into alpha so I waited a while but then soon realised that I was not going to get in. so started playing world of tanks and then over the course of the majority of 2014 I was inactive. Then in 2015 I found out closed beta had arrived though I was to late to get in the first round. so I waited a month or 2 during which I was an active member and posted often. I did get in and so far I have loved the game. :)

here is a link to the pre release wiki  http://wiredstar.com/wowswiki/

Same situation here, I search around every few months or so on upcoming warship games. I knew this game was around for awhile but read it was only in alpha or had not even gotten there much like yourself. Looked it up a couple months ago there it was, closed beta! Signed-up but said screw it, I'm not waiting and I hung around on Twitch. It paid off and I thank the streamer a lot and here we are.

I remember the rumors of WG doing ships and planes back in OBT of WoT.  Even back then I was eagerly waiting for this game, just didn't know how long it would actually be before I could play.

Having played WoT for a couple of years on a different account, some of my clan mates told me about it and I had a look at the first trailer they put out (I wasn't very impressed :P):

 

However, this year I saw this trailer and I thought: "I want a peice of that right now."

 

I was planning on waiting for OBT like a lot of other players, but when the pre-order ships came out I bought them for the -15% discount.  Two days later I got CBT access and I've been playing/testing and having a blast since.

I would need my own thread for this as its waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too long.

 

Short version being when I downloaded tanks back in the day they had the visual pic of 3 different games as one. This was before WarThunder(beta tester here), and also before Warplanes. Prior to that... seek 1st sentence as my online playing extends back to Red Baron 2.

Basically, all that happened was that I had stumbled upon the WoWS website (this was actually before they had set up a forum) and kept a tab on it. Would check in every once in a while to see that anything changed. That's basically it.... Sorry for not having some amazing story of adventure, and romance. :P

It was the 2013 trailer that got me hooked.to this day the 2013 trailer is my favourite.

I have to say that this game was different to what I expected though I did not know really what to expect.

Always loved aeronautical games. Started playing WOWP in July 2013. Noticed the trailer for WOWS which peaked my curiosity. Signed up for Beta but didn't make it. Then saw an ad or notification that new applicants were being accepted, and somehow got in. Been enjoying Ships to some extent but hard to pull away from Planes since my real interest is in the air rather than the water.

Well my fascination with ships started from the anime *Kancolle* I got into the game the day when the anime aired its first episode.

What was nice about the anime/game was that the every ship had a story behind them.

 

I was scouting for warship games on the net, I came across Battlestation *AWESOME GAME* btw then later found world of warships.

I wouldv just stuck with [edited]if only it had a decent MM.

This was a few days after WG introduced the unified accounts.  I came across WoWS when I was trying to log in and it showed where WG made accounts unified to two other games. I saw that it had a naval game so I opened a new tab and went to the WoWS website. Every once and a while I would look at the Q and A thread with the developers answering the players questions. What really got me into the game was that France was eventually going to be added and France being one of my favorite navies during WWll, I decided that I would play the game when it would go into OBT.

I found a Battleship trailer on YouTube by accident and I wasn't very impressed. I had heard of WoT imagined this to be about the same and disregarded it completely. Later that day I saw one of IChase's videos on Carriers then I really wanted to play.

I've played tanks since 2011 and one day saw the news article in the client announcing plans to make World of Battleships (which of course was eventually changed to World of Warships).

I heard the first time about this game when I started playing wot in early 2013 and a friend of me told me that wg will makes a plane and a ship game later on.I wasnt very much interested in the development of WoWs untill I read the EU dev blog which made me hooked about the potential of this game in early 2014.I later created EU and NA account to participate in forum activities.I didnt expect to get into alpha test anyway and wanted to wait for asia server to be avalaible after release(I live in Asia hence the SEA part in my name that means South East Asia).

 

And then on one faithfull day after coming home from a month and a half vacation,I discovered I unexpectedly became a NA alpha tester after I became a beta weekend tester in the first BWT.I was very shocked,disbelief and happy&sad.I was very surprised as I didnt post much nor contribute a lot of things.I was happy to be able to get an opportunity of a lifetime to participate in CAT phase and sad due to having crap laptop and internet.

 

After 3 weeks pass by,my family finally get a better net service.I was finally able to participate CAT.It was a huge blast !Beyond my expectation.Altough my fps. werent that great,0-14fps regularly in low setting but still had fun playing it.My fps finally got better after bought a new PC.

I've found WoWs to be pretty good so far, definitely much to improve and definitely much has already been improved.

     I found WoWS by WG highlighting it on their main page. I then looked at it at the online site and at Wiki. Same as others. I would check every once in a while as to its progress and announcements regarding same. The older trailers for the game looked intriguing and, like many, I wondered exactly when WoWS could be played.

     Sometime in Fall 2014 there was an advertisement to apply for Beta testing. I was lucky to get chosen for the Dec/14 Beta weekend. After playing pretty much continually that weekend I couldn't wait to play WoWS some more. I contributed to the official poll just as soon as I could. I may have also posted my first commentary on the forums. Somehow I missed the second Beta Weekend in Jan/15 (think work intruded).

     Rather inexplicably, however, I got an invite into Alpha (seemingly out of the blue - think that was in Jan/15). So off I went happily sailing over the High Seas. This thrilled me no end, I can tell you. Perhaps it was something I said on the Forums that got me the invite - maybe I got noticed by a WoWS Grand Poobah? No matter - I'm thrilled to be an Alpha Tester albeit a very late, 'just under the wire' invitee. Being Alpha auto-placed me into CBT. TY WG for inviting me into the pre-launch play testing.

     So my journey to WoWS is very similar, I'm thinking, to others.
