Just gave it a go. Actually liked some parts of it, but wish it was a bit more like Silent Hunter 3, as in more a simulation. Still not bad for free to play.

If I could get Silent Hunter 3 to work om my machine, I would still be playing it. It was that good.

The game would be improved with realistic ammo limitations. Especially torpedoes Carriers should have more control over what aircraft they can put up within the limitations.
Some new game more wouldn't kill them either. And no more circles, give us ports to attack or defend, convoys, land targets to artillery etc.

Well RK, I think you are on to something. I've played up to the Pensacola and Aoba but the game isn't grabbing me the way WOT did.

Each game mode seems too similar and the maps don't really make all that much difference either.

I do like the gameplay generally but there could be a lot more to it than just those circles.

I've enjoyed the switch to carriers for the change in game play. Of course, whatever planes you bring some teammate criticizes. LOL

I uninstalled it due to the sameness of each round. Just isn't holding my attention.

If they could add various sea states/weather/time of day, it would add depth (no pun) to the existing mechanics, IMO.
The 'terrain' as it is, is just either water or island. The ocean is much more dynamic than the glassy smooth seas of this game.

It works, you just have to install GFWL. The only thing is you can't re-download any dlc.
