    As the title states I've gotten a bug to play a good WWII game. I've played tank games but never really done naval battles. Any suggestions for a good naval battle strat game. I'm not looking for extreme simulation but a fun "beginner" game with that cool WWII vibe.

    I had a lot of fun with this one as a kid - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/P.T.O.

    Translated ROMs should be easy enough to find. Sorry, that’s all I’ve got off top of my head. I’m kind of interested in this, too. I’ve pretty much only played modern stuff by John Tiller.

    unironically World of Warships

    otherwise wargames abstract actual naval warfare into numbers that dont differ from your panzer general clone with extra range...

    What is a naval battle?
    fog of war reasoning
    fire control
    maneuver

    ^ TB wargames offer none of it

    I found that one to be a little bit boring. Played as Kriegsmarine from 1939 till the end of 1940. All I had to do was spam uboats to achieve superiority. They are cheap to build and OP as hell. Two uboats is enough to oblitirate the entire convoy.
