    YOUR 19-POINT CAPTAIN IS NO LONGER AN EARNER

    There you go being all soft hearted trying to come up with a good reason not to whack all of these 3 pointers, and you did. Thanks. But if WOWS comes up with a good sale a the 100% ECXP for the hit....

    Yes, silver lining with stars and tweedy birds spinning around. I am also a collector and tried to keep at least a 3 point captain in each ship so I could use it. I understand now you can take a ship out without a captain. If so I have a BUCH of captains I would be willing to let go. I believe we have supported WOWS over the years, they could give us a short free period since this is a total change. Rather they choose to beat us about the head and shoulders. But what do I know, I am Punch Drunk. If my wife finds out what I spent on this game, I will be Punched OUT.

    I am a crappy player, do you know how long it took me to grind out those 19 pointers. Top earners at 5%, come collection day they are going to be short and get clipped!
  5. I am an extremely crappy player. It took forever to grind out those top earners. 5% for what was a top earner,  you know what happens when your production comes up short at collection time...

  6. Please try and stay awake for a long bedtime story. Our family had twelve 19-point captains. These were top line captains earning Elite Commander XP to help create other top line captains. The Captains had not been worried about the 0.10.0 skill point changes. They would be able to put their unassigned skill points where they liked since this was a total and complete change from the Godfather. With the installation of 0.10.0 the 19-point captains were no longer top line captains and were unable to earn for the family. You do not earn and…. SHOCKED, how could they be toppled from power? What had they done wrong? The 19-point captains who could no longer earn were in fear. They asked the Godfather how they could earn for him and the family again. The Godfather said, “We’ve added a new method of obtaining Elite Commander XP – by dismissing unused commanders.” The 19-point captains were relieved and grateful to the Godfather. So what if a few underling commanders had to be “dismissed”, if they could earn and be safe again. The captains looked and found unassigned skill points scattered throughout the family. Almost all low-ranking captains had unassigned skill points assigned to them. Assigned, not in a pool of Elite XP, assigned to captains. Almost all captains under 10-points had double the unassigned skill points. The 19-point captains did not know how valuable these points the Godfather assigned to the underlings were. The 19-point captains found that it took 500,000 skill points to get to 20 and 700,000 more to get to 21. A total of twelve million points per 19-point captain. A lot of underlings were going to get “dismissed” but so be it. So, the “dismissing” began. WAIT, the Godfather wants a tribute for the right to obtain XP from the “dismissed” captain. What will we owe you asked the 19-point captains? “UP to 25% of the Commander XP, at the cost of 10 Credits for 1 XP.”. “UP to 100% of the Commander XP, at the cost of 1 doubloon per 110 XP.”, said the Godfather. The 19-point captains went to the Consigliere for help calculating the cost. 1,200,000 credits for each of the 12, but at 25% XP per captain… The Consigliere offered for someone else to do the math as his head began to ache. He knew there are not enough captains to sustain this in the family, probably not in many families. 12,000,000 using doubloons, but at 110 XP per Doubloon = 109,090 doubloons each. There are a dozen 19-point captains in this family. (12,000,000 / 110 x 12 = 1,309,090 Doubloons) The Consigliere did not say this out loud, only thought it. THESE WERE TOP OF THE LINE EARNERS, NOW THEY ARE NOTHING. MEANWHILE THE GODFATHER GAVE UNASSIGNED SKILL POINTS OUT LIKE SNOWFLAKES ON A WINTER’S NIGHT. WOULD NOT THOSE HAVE BEEN BETTER SERVED IN A POOL OF ELITE COMMANDER XP FOR EACH FAMILY TO DECIDE HOW TO USE. BESIDES THE TRIBUTES ARE TOO EXPENSIVE AND SHOULD HAVE A FREE PERIOD… Suddenly a chill ran up the Consigliere spine! What if the Godfather’s enforcers could read his mind and have him “Unassigned”?
  7. WOWS HAS STOLEN FROM ITS PLAYER BASE If you had captains with “Undistributed skill points”, WOWS HAS STOLEN FROM YOU. Demand your account be compensated one (1) Doubloons for per every 110 XP of the Undistributed skill points when version 0.10.0 went live. Those “Undistributed skill points” are Elite Commander XP. This should be a large pool of Elite Commander XP that you could use to turn your 19-point captains into 21-point captains or any way you choose. Instead, WOWS is holding it hostage by assigning it to a captain. This act has taken away your right to use it on the captain of your choice. The only way to regain the “Undistributed skill points” is a method that cost money in the form of Doubloons, dismissing the captain. WOWS has assigned the value of an “Undistributed skill point” to be 1 “Doubloon” per every 110 of XP.

    This commander skill rework is garbage.

    Amen.... Didn’t you read WOW’S ANNOUNCEMENT - "We've added a new method of obtaining Elite Commander XP - by demobilizing unused Commanders". I figure all you need to do to get from 19 to 21 is get rid of 5 or 6 ten point commanders, that and about $100.00 worth of doubloons and BAM you’re there!

    GREAT ANNOUNCEMENT "We've added a new method of obtaining Elite Commander XP by demobilizing unused Commanders" Sounds Great. Try it on a 10 point captain! 1934 Doubloons for 212,769 Elite Commander XP. That is not even half of the 500k needed to take a 19 point captain to 20. Demand this be FREE or greatly reduced WOWS, we have continued to support you, it is time to step up and support us.
  10. Is this something you, the player base, would be interested in? Rather than wide sweeping changes of the current game, how about branching out. WOWS, you already have the infrastructure, Maps, Ships, etc. I understand some of these ideas have been brought up before. 1 - Historically, accurate period naval ships - World Wars {WWI and WWII} Tier 1 would be beginning of WWI, Tier 10 would be end of WWII 2 - Historically, accurate period naval ships - Modern {After WWII (Missiles)} Tier 1 would be post WWII, Tier 10 would be Current Day Ships 3 - Current Version {Only real ships that were built} Leaning towards realistic, not historic 4 - Legacy Version {Same as Current Version without CVs} 5 - Arcade {Current Version, add real ships from the drawing board that were never built} A little more the sky is the limit, more shoot-em-up 6 - Amped version for those who just want more {Use your imagination, nukes, satellites, lasers, mines, whatever} Rather than keep adding to what worked until it is too bloated, divide it up. One size does not fit all. This will give you the opportunity to find a happy fit for most. Besides WOWS, look at the new premium markets you will be able to exploit. What do you as a consumer think about this? What other periods or branches would you like to see? Is this worth looking at? Without being rude, speak your mind to WOWS. As a WOWS executive, you do not need a marketing team to tell you what to do, read what your customers are telling you. One more thing, I think we have had the same operations since I got here. Put a couple people on making up a passel of new ones for us, that would be appreciated. Gramps

    Expand or branch out the formula, do not change it. WOWS has, or had, a winning formula. Expand or branch out the formula as you and I posted. But no, WOWS is dead set on changing the formula. Just like my example of “New Coke”. The consumer revolt nearly killed Coco-Cola before they came to their senses. Wows, you already have the infrastructure, here are some examples of how you could branch out the formula. 1 Historically accurate period naval ships {WWII and before} 2 Modern accurate period naval ships {After WWII (Missiles)} 3 Arcade like version{current version} 4 Real ships from the drawing board that were never built 5 Amped version for those who just want more {use your imagination, nukes, satellites, lasers, mines, whatever} As an executive, you do not need a marketing team to tell you what to do, read what your customers are telling you.

    I have a case study for WOWS to look up and learn from. Coca-Cola had a great, well selling product. Someone in marketing convinced them to change the formula and sell it as New Coke. What happened? You drink Coke and not new Coke. We enjoy brawling Battleships. Brawling BBs comes about when a battleship takes a cap because air power is so overpowering that other ships with lesser health pools, like DDs, are unable to cap. This brawling BB concept turns out to be quite fun. Your Idea is that BBs stay in the back, Cruisers and DDs fight for caps. We are using BBs against your rules, we understand why you would wish to stop it. Let us Translate our response, Leave our secondary's alone. Our Captains are not broken, do not try to fix them. Translation Leave our Captains skills alone. Updates in most cases are good but, why do you insist on multiple game wide sweeping changes so often? Slow your roll, look, and listen to what most of your customers want. The game is unrecognizable from the one I started with and enjoyed not that long ago. Decide what you want, New Coke or Classic Coke? Just a thought Divide your game up. You have the maps and game engine. Just put the proper ships with the proper specs. It opens multiple sets of premium markets. 1 Historically accurate period naval ships {WWII and before} Keep ships in tiers by era of ship. Tier 1 would be pre-WWI, Tier 10 would be end of WWII ships 2 Modern accurate period naval ships {After WWII (Missiles)} Keep ships in tiers by era of ship. Tier 1 would be post WWII, Tier 10 would be Current Ships 3 Arcade like version {Real and drawing board ships, leaning towards realistic, Kind of like we have now} 4 Ships from the drawing board that were never built {The sky is the limit} 5 Amped version for those who just want more {use your imagination, nukes, satellites, lasers, mines, whatever} One more thing, I think we have had the same operations since I got here. Put a couple people on making up a passel of new ones for us, that would be appreciated. Gramps

    WOWS Come on really! I ALREDY PAID. If I Pay and “train” my Captain in the Destroyer Gearing, Then Pay and “train” him in the Cruiser Des Moines, Then Pay and “train” him in the Battleship Montana, WHY am I paying Elite XP, Doubloons, or Earning XP to unlock his skills to move him between those ships? I ALREDY PAID, I should be able to move the captain freely amongst those EXACT ships I trained them in without cost or penalty. I had to move him to the ship to train him, he belongs to that ship. The ships the captain paid to train on should be treated like premium ships to him, free to move amongst. What is WOWS intent on training a captain on multiple ship types? If I had one captain setup for all my tier five ships of a nation and could freely switch between them, then WOWs would have found something useful. One captain for most tier 5, one for t6 and so on. How about 4 builds for the same ship type? I could have a Brawler, AA, High Health, & general build for my BB. Of course, you could charge 500 doubloons to swap sets on the same ship. Or better yet, if it is not broken, don’t try to fix it. In my humble opinion, Gramps
