I looked at World of Warships as I am quite into World of Tanks. I spent quite some time looking at the videos etc on Youtube. It occured to me that after a while, the tactics would always be the same irrespective of map.

This is because whereas world of tanks has a 3 dimensional combat space (because of hills) - clearly by sea it is 2D. Therefore the same old thing should work - send your carrier here, rush battlehsips there - every time. Yes I understand there are islands but most ship combat involves indirect fire anyway.

Or so it looked.

Have I missed a trick here?
