Huge Naval Fleet

Destroyers

Destroyers serve a number of roles in the game. They can be used to seek out enemy ships for the big-guns on their team to target, to launch torpedo salvoes at enemy ships and provide additional anti-aircraft cover for friendly vessels. 

Tactics

  • The power of destroyers is in their speed and manoeuvrability, as well as high rate of fire. Their swiftness compensates for the disadvantage of light armour. Utilize this to your full advantage.
  • Destroyers are a fast and lethal weapon in battles against hulking battleships.
  • Closing distances is a risky choice for a destroyer but it can really pay off as the precision of torpedo attacks increases significantly as you close the gap between you and your target.

Navigation and movement

Nimble and extremely agile, destroyers are capable of increasing their speed and stopping quicker than any other class. Being long and narrow, they turn rather slowly. Despite their modest size, their turning diameters at top speed can easily compete with those of giant battleships. 

Cruisers

Cruisers are the most manoeuvrable class of warship. Designed to react fast and with deadly force, they act as a destroyer shield for larger ships and as anti-aircraft platforms for the team. They can fight toe-to–toe with other cruisers and some can utilize torpedoes to damage capital ships.

Tactics

  • American cruisers are perfect for anti-aircraft defence. Japanese cruisers have torpedo tubes that make their firepower virtually comparable with that of heavy destroyers.
  • A single cruiser is a huge threat but a group of cruisers spells disaster for any enemy ship.
  • The anti-aircraft effectiveness of cruisers greatly increases when in a group, while enemy ships are decimated under the continuous torrent of fire from an organised team of cruisers.
  • Those who fully master control of a cruiser will be among the elite captains in World of Warships. Only those players who excel at multitasking will truly be in full control of this dangerous vessel. Managing intelligence, manoeuvring to avoid torpedoes, hunting destroyers, firing artillery and launching torpedo salvoes— all of this will make a cruiser captain unstoppable.

Navigation and movement

Being the most hybrid class, cruisers have features of both destroyers and battleships in terms of dynamics. Light cruisers resemble the former, whereas heavy cruisers are closer to the latter.

Battleships

Battleships are the quintessential "heavy hitters" of World of Warships and offer a triple threat to their opponents. Massive firepower coupled with heavy armour make them the deadly juggernauts of the sea. Secondary gun batteries make them a serious threat to smaller vessels, and the many anti-aircraft guns lining their decks offer a tremendous amount of anti-aircraft defence.

Tactics

  • Plan your route in advance. High inertia makes it difficult for a battleship to stop or change course.
  • Use airplanes to your advantage – scouts increase your main guns’ range, fighters protect you from attacking squadrons, while both types help you locate enemies and avoid ambushes.
  • The most penetrable areas of this ship are the elements of horizontal (deck) and vertical (belt and barbettes) armour, so be sure to hide these weaknesses from the opposition.
  • While navigating the map on your appointed course, use that time to utilize the battleship’s air defence to protect your fleet.

Navigation and movement

Despite their clumsiness and large size, battleships are able to accelerate to significant speeds. However, they react slowly and need a lot of time to stop. A battleship captain has to be extremely careful as a quick destroyer can take advantage of this situation.

Aircraft carriers

Aircraft Carriers are the game's stand-alone, multi-role ship, bringing RTS-style gameplay to the battle. They carry three kinds of aircraft: Dive Bombers, Torpedo Bombers and Fighter Planes. Each aircraft type plays a specific role and a carrier can have more than one group of aircraft in the air at any one time. Aircraft from a carrier can attack enemy aircraft, scout enemy ships or planes, attack enemy ships directly and escort or cover friendly ships and aircraft.

Tactics

  • Keep your aircraft carrier safe and avoid direct engagements with enemy ships.
  • Take advantage of the fact that your aircraft can fly further than the enemy’s shells and torpedoes. Be prepared for sneak attacks by carefully placing your carrier and monitoring your surroundings for any signs of possible danger.
  • Utilize the variety of aircraft at your disposal to attack any opposing ship. Deploy fighters to neutralize the enemy’s counterparts and “clean up” the map for your other squadrons. Approach a target from the flanks with torpedo bombers and utilize dive bombers attacking from the forecastle to trap opponents and gain an advantage.
  • If you’re not afraid of taking risks, try to keep a closer distance between your vessel and the target to shorten the time it takes to launch your next air attack.

Navigation and movement

Comparable to battleships in terms of displacement, aircraft carriers nevertheless run faster. Turning significantly reduces the aircraft carriers speed and their rudder shift is slower. As a result, ships of this class can reach a high speed quickly but can’t change their heading very quickly.

Tactical Diversity

World of Warships features Wargaming’s signature level of tactical diversity with upgradeable tech modules, each designed with a specific combat objective.
Every sea battle is a unique experience with a wide range of maps that deliver an array of strategic options and scenarios for high stakes PvP engagements. 
  • Aircraft carriers — Multi-role ships that add RTS-style gameplay to the mix. Carrying three types of aircraft (Dive Bombers, Torpedo Bombers and Fighters) and the ability to command multiple squadrons at the same time, carriers can shape the battle from the skies.
  • Destroyers — Lightly armoured but swift, destroyers are the fastest and most manoeuvrable ships available. These vessels are perfect for hunting enemy battleships, spotting them for teammates to target or blowing them out of the water personally. Their deadly torpedoes can quickly send any enemy ship to the depths.
  • Cruisers — Combining speed, manoeuvrability and firepower, this class is a major threat on the open water, dealing damage from either massive cannons or torpedoes. Additionally, the anti-aircraft guns that line their decks offer a good line of defence against high-flying threats.
  • Battleships — These are the designated "heavy hitters" of World of Warships. Massive cannons, thick armour and rows of anti-aircraft artillery make them a deadly “triple threat” in any situation.
