i wouldnt say Naval Battles Simulator is better than RTW series, its a bit similar to RTW but more like following in the tradition of Great Naval Battles 1. It is still being regularly updated, hence early access.
The developer plans to add aircraft also and other features - i would like to see the scale in game changed and also the inclusion of flares and spotlights - invaluable for night actions, and coastal air recon in the campaign at the very least
as for the rate of fire - it can seem fast but i think that is the secondary fire occurring also?
NBS better than the RTW series? Hell no.
Just no, it isn't.
I saw generals create imaginary "masses of manoeuvre" with a crayon and dispose of enemy concentrations, that were on the ground and on the map, with an eraser. Who was I to criticise them, hero as I was of a hundred "Chinagraph wars" of make-believe?
