Not that I grouped with any of you but yeah, I stopped.  I puttered for a few games last weekend but it doesn't grab me like it did. I'll putter from time to time but I don't see playing more than 3-4 games in a 'long' session happening anymore.

I still read the thread, but I've been absorbed by my PS4 for the last bit.

My play times never matched up with the people here but I stopped playing in December and haven't had much urge to play since.  I have been using what was formerly my WoT time on the World of Warships alpha.

Yeah I don't see any of the old crew any more. Aba is either out of town or dead...haven't seen him on for several days.

I'm not dead!

Been on vacation.  Hawaii is great but I agree with Anakin re: sand.

Did a killer in-depth tour of the interior of the Mighty Mo, so now I am geeked up for World of Warships.

Wow you went on actual vacation-y vacation! WoWS has some real potential, but it needs a lot of polish still. Will be fun to get in on the ground floor this time though.

It looks like it could be a lot of fun and something new, but WoWP is sitting out there like a big cautionary turd. How they managed to fuck that up so bad is beyond me. Still though, it looks like fun and I hope they do another pre-order bundle with a year sub and all sorts of pre-order only ships.

I know I'm in the minority opinion on this subject but WarThunder is just so much better That I can't wait to see what they do with ships.

WGN wins tanks.  WT wins planes.  The cockpit view in historic mode gives WT the edge. 

I think WGN learned from WoWP and WoWS looks MUCH better.  The slower, more strategic pace will cater to the tanks crowd me thinks.

I got in to one of the alpha weekends and played a few games. The game play is fun, but the maps are really limited and are going to get really boring really fast. I am not sure how to make an interesting sea map since you can only use 2 dimensions, so they have their work cut out for them.

I think that was exactly the problem with WoWP, the maps were too compressed and the pace was so much faster than a tanks battle that it turned a lot of tanks players off.  They also managed to piss the sim guys off by making the flight model very arcady but they scared the casual players off by not making it arcady enough to appeal to them.  War Thunder gets it right by having huge maps with coherent objectives and allowing the players to choose the level of 'realism' they want to play at.

Right now I am cautiously optimistic about WoWS and would probably buy a pre-release package.  Of course that assumes that they don't screw it up between now and open beta.

I like the tanks in WT a lot better too. There isn't the variety there is in WoT, but the gameplay makes up for it. I like the way that most deaths are from one shot, that you get more than one vehicle per battle, and the battles are almost always decided by following the objective instead of last tank standing. The new X-Ray thing that happens when you get killed or damage an enemy is also great as well. It's helped with a lot of the complaints about their damage model and helps players learn where to aim. It's alo really cool.

Yes, PC and PS players are matched together. PS players have an asterisk in front of their names in the roster so that PC master race knows who to make fun of. Apparently PS players also get an A-26 on their account, a plane so hard to get for PC players I've only seen one since I've been playing that wasn't on a PS account. PC players are superbutthurt about it because the only way to get one in the last year was something like a one weekend event where you had to shoot down 1000 players.

If you have any other questions let me know, the Battle Rating and Tier systems seem to confuse a lot of people and they wind up getting into matches that their planes have no business being in.

I seem to do pretty well with the lowbie tanks, and I just started fooling with the AA stuff - pretty funny to light up tanks with it.

The flying bits...I'm less enamored with them, especially on console. Perhaps it'd be better if I downloaded the PC version.

7 kills, including last 4 tanks (had an arty left that stayed alive long enough for me to miss the Kolabanov's  Ohhhhh, I see. )

I got in too, played the tutorial and a match or two.  It seems fun enough.  Reminds me of Hearthstone with tanks so I probably won't spend much time on it.

It's definitely easier to go from WoT to WoWs than it was to go to planes.  The pacing of the matches and mechanics of moving and shooting are similar enough to make it fairly easy to start playing.

I saw a lot of Twitch streamers doing Warships yesterday. They all seem to be having a great time with it, and it looks interesting. There didn't seem to be a lot of teamwork as such though, just running around randomly shooting other ships. As mentioned above its harder to funnel players into different paths when all the terrain you have to play with are islands, so I would imagine people will run off in 50 directions.

I'm a serious Naval history grog though so I do feel the call....

Teamwork gets a little better once people start to figure out that running around like a squirrel monkey on crack while shooting randomly in the air is not the path to success.  Be aware that like tanks the game is not a sim, realism comes in a distant 3rd to game play and balance.
