I took my second step in World Of Warships – my first all player battle. I felt somewhat conspicuous towards the end as the numbers dwindled – assuming people were more than likely spectating on my ship. (I’m not sure what happens if you quit a battle early – do you get your rewards? Do you have to wait around for the end as I have been to get them?) Some reasonable tactical decisions, unusually straight shooting and plenty of luck saw me come out as the last man standing.
That battle was rather exciting – although not with the same PVP shakes I tend to get in EVE. I think that comes down to feeling like you have more situational awareness and more time to think. It also doesn’t really cost you anything of note. I know my underlying goal at this point is just not embarrassing myself. I don’t say that flippantly, I mean it. It is the source of much of my anxiety.
I’ll probably talk about the game for a bit – but reflecting on it in comparison to EVE and what I might, or might not learn from it.
