Winning first place in the “Ad that Frees Your Inner Gamer” category of the YouTube Ad of the Year Contest, Wargaming’s witty advert went head-to-head with other industry heavy hitters such as Fortnite and League of Legends.
Created internally by Wargaming.net, the ad takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the massively multiplayer naval combat game and showcases some of the key features, gameplay, epic visuals to be found in the hit game.
“World of Warships is often dominantly perceived through its strategic and historical angle,” said Yan Emanov, World of Warships Product Marketing Director. “While we are proud of these aspects, our game offers much more to players. Therefore, with this video, we wanted to put more emphasis on its fun and entertaining side.”
Emanov added, “We have a very passionate and witty audience, always ready to discuss various topics, so our scriptwriter didn’t have to look far for inspiration.”
And so in the spirit of the advert below, “Why the @#$@ Haven’t You Played World of Warships Yet?”
