  1. They will pay their way through a bunch of it for sure. I have mixed feelings about it. I hate the thought of P2W. But, I also have ton of XP that I could convert. So, I personally would probably treat it like any tech tree grind. Play the tier until I get bored and then FXP to the next. Maybe skip a T9 if it's too painful. As long as it's a minor health buff and even minorer other type stuff, I just don't see it being that terribly egregious. I've said elsewhere that I'd prefer a flat fee and fewer gimmicks and less power creep. That's not going to happen so, imo, this is better than tons of super power creeped premiums.
  2. Technically all of late stage capitalism is a cash grab. There are a couple structural issues that also may apply. They've completed the majority of the lines with the RU BBs. So, there's not going to be as much tech tree activity amongst the vets. Additionally, there are always new players trickling in and they need some reason for the vets to keep iterating through all the lower levels to fill out those queues. Or at least, the more vets that do so the better those queues will function given a stagnating player base.
  3. CV vs surface ship is about a billion times more unfair than tier 10.5. This is just end game F2P hijinx and it could be much worse and if they need to super power creep the premiums to keep the money rolling then this could end up looking like a much better deal.

    That's a big part of the reason why it will never happen. The other part being that it's built from the ground up as F2P and so WG will want to leverage that as much as possible.

    So, full disclosure. I'd prefer a flat monthly fee and we just lite xp grind all the new ships that WG has in the pipeline. That's never going to happen so it's some sort of F2P nonsense that we have to put up with to keep the servers running. I like this about as much as the premium nonsense we're getting. I think I might prefer it over the premiums but we're also going to get premiums and so in combination it's not fantastic. But it is a way for WG to generate regular recurring revenue. *shudders*

    I was wondering if there was a glitch in the matrix.

    BBs are preschool. CAs exist somewhere between grade school and high school. And DD play can be at the university level. You can play them all at the preschool level but it's mostly BBs where you can do that and be somewhat successful.

    The complexity of the game is recognizing all those situations that you can use against your opponents and they can use against you and maximizing the former while minimizing the latter. You can also play this game really dumbly. Especially as a BB main. Min maxing your advantages is all about skill and very little about stats. Though obviously your stats play a very important part in that. IE. You come up against an uptiered Montana in a duel, you kite back to your teammates and focus that guy down.

    You probably are. But you could also still be inexperienced.

    Your inexperience is showing.

    BB play is particularly dumb most of the time. But, I've seen people pull off some pretty skillful maneuvers in slugfests and in fact take out a stationary monty or the like. T9s and T8s. There's a huge amount of luck involved but timing and aggression and maneuvering can counter huge stat imbalances. I've done that sort of thing in a CA. I've also died plenty of time trying to pull off those wild and crazy maneuvers but the more you do it the better you get at reading the situation and setting it up and the timing.

    Its a T+1 type deal, so yeah. *shrugs*

    There are many things in play. With BBs, RNG most of all. But, the upshot is that I've won many duels that stats say should have lost. That's about skill not stats.

    When an Iowa duels a Montana and wins, that's about skill. This is no different.
