Yes as you get to use different classes and their strengths and weaknesses become alot more apparent.

Really enjoying WOWS, once you get out of tier 1 lots more options open up to you.

I started playing wow pc a week or so ago in preparation for legends I'm enjoying legends but I do hope they put some basic options in like toggle zoom or the ability to hold the rudder in set positions

I was an alpha tester for legends, the further up the tech tree you go the better it gets.

Keep playing. Just like tanks, it gets better with time. Nobody boasts how fun the M3 Lee is, but the Easy 8 makes it worth playing through. Same for ships, except it gets more fun by tier III. The British cruisers are probably the most friendly way to start out, although they stop at tier III.

Now it lost me.

 Well, I really like the M3 Lee, but don't like any of the Shermans except the Jumbo with the first turret and the derp gun.

Ok i gave it another go. Upto teir 3. 

It says as you load in 'racing through the middle of the map is a poor tactic.

Idk i think this the only interesting tactic aka pz4/5 style.

Luckily i have no clue how to look at my stats. But i'm woeful i'm sure.

When i press the torpedo button. What am i seeing? Not sure what sectors mean. 

Honestly i 'm finding the whole layout of the game (port , hq, all that non actual game stuff, confusing to the point of annoyance

I must say i was hoping for something a bit more spectacular when you ram a ship broadside at full speed.

I appreciate any help or enouragement.

Is this why WOTc teams have been so bad? all the half decent players playing WOWs?

unlike in tanks you don't need a compass here as the battles are all from a distance you shouldn't be getting very close in general

When you switch to torpedoes you get the arc of fire for your torpedo tubes displayed around the ship. Most ships have their tubes either on the sides of the ship or stern, so they can only fire torpedoes out the sides in a limited arc. Once you aim inside of that arc you'll be shown a smaller solid arc which is the actual aim of the torpedoes. If its white you can fire, if its orange you're still reloading. You also will have a fixed arc that will display the distance and time of travel for your torpedoes to get where you're aiming. You have to know the layout of your torpedo tubes to get the most out of them. Some ships have tubes on each side so you launch half from one side then you can turn and launch the other half from the other side. Other ships have center mounted tubes that can face either direction so you can launch the full complement from either side.
