DocWalker posted a topic in General Game DiscussionAfter getting Alaska (thanks again for the skill suggestions) & Halsey ... I decided to reopen the USN BB line ... languishing at the New Mexico for the past year. I bought Colorado, assigned Halsey, and put him on Alaska for retraining ... planning out an end state "combo" skill build, I didn't have enough points ... who does? I started with: PT, EL ... EM, AR ... SI, BoS ... CE, FP ..... but that's 20 points ... so I checked out Little White Mouse's review for Alaska ... LWM listed: PT, PM ... EM, AR ... BoS, SI ... FP, CE ... notice a pattern? and also 20 points I kept messing around with a lot of combinations which included JoaT, HA, PM, etc ... and finally came up with PT, EL, PM ... EM ... Bos, SI ... FP, CE ... 19 points ... picks up PM and removes AR ... and even more "tankiness" I wondered, is AR that critical for a BB with 30 sec reload and Alaska with 17.6? I do love it (on faster firing guns) ... but that pesky point thing. Right before your HP goes to zero, reload is only 20% less ... e.g. 24.1 and 14.1 for Montana & Alaska respectively. Any thoughts? TIA
warheart1992 posted a topic in General Game DiscussionWith more than a year since the last permanent Campaign was introduced to the game ( talking about Halsey, the Christmas ones were time limited), I can't help but think Campaigns are in a bit of a weird spot. During this past year WG has pushed small, monthly time limited "Campaigns" in the form Directives, both for earning ships and Commanders in tandem with Collections. Oftentimes I find myself pressed irl and can't really devote the time in doing all Directives. Meanwhile due to their limited nature, they often feel more of a chore; not only that, but they promote often certain behaviors in order to complete them as soon as possible. While I understand the objective of these Directives, to establish a frequent presence of a grind so someone who just jumps in has something to do, or to push people into buying certain premium content to ease a grind, I feel permanent Campaigns still have a spot in the game. They offer a more relaxed "do it at your own pace" logic, they are pretty demanding but the rewards are often worth it (Shinonome/Yamamoto/Halsey+ all the supercontainers you get) and with the addition of co-op objectives with Halsey aren't restricted to PvP. Now, there is of course an argument to be made that most Campaigns reward high tiers, which is true due to most requirements. This doesn't mean that there can't be Campaigns with a bit toned down rewards, but also available to mid tiers. There are loads of potential Commanders, loads of ships that can be reward material. That way, people that have limited time in their hands can also work towards some reward. Sadly the solution in most cases lately is just to pay. Bottom line, do you fine forumers feel a new Campaign would be good for the game? What would you like it to be? Tl;dr: Not everything needs to be a time limited series of Directives. P.S, @Bualar, @Umbaretz, is there any data on how many people have completed the current Campaigns? Am pretty curious on that matter.
Just unlocked William Halsey today, decided " Welp , grandy, looks good on Des Moines" and after 2 or 3 games I experienced what few players in this game will ever actually get to experience. Something that requires a lot of time and dedication, skill and luck. Yes, I got to experience the thrill of being in the highest DPM ship in the game with a 20% boost, thanks to the confederate award, and I must say it was so satisfying I had to share it with a few of you: ( P.S. , What should I do with my old 17 pt DM captain??)
