So I'm sitting here on a wed afternoon at work, talking to the guy running the wows facebook and it suddenly hits me, a few casual ideas I'd like to see.

 

1.) when the Graf Zepplin is released, the Stuka's need sirens....just...they do...don't care if they never had em...but they do....some of us watch our plane's to see the dive bomb happen and the siren would be like jumper cables on your *censor* of fun.

 

2.) stop releasing reskins....please...it just takes time away from other more important lines and ships some of us would like to play. I REALLY loved the Duca and I want to see more odd ships released...an Italian heavy cruiser maybe...something that isn't gonna have a line behind it in the foreseeable future.

 

3.) When a patch goes live, a ship that is supposed to be running along with it, and the campaign should be released with it....the sizzle behind a patch is lost when people download it, go to port, and see no ship....and the Hood threads got mega old. 

 

4.) I really felt like 6.5 wasn't really a patch...I mean once it went live I didn't really notice anything...it seemed like a "hey we just moved some stuff around...which we didn't really need to!" Granted looking at point 3 I'm sure this woulda been moot.

 

5.) FFS stop with the multi-tiered pricing over time...I'm not gonna pay 100 for a bundle, you know it, I know it, TalonV knows it, you're gonna get my dough...the question here is do you want it now on release, or like three weeks later when you decide to let the cheapskates have it.

 

6.) Lower the price of the Eugen, or discount it heavily for a week or so...I'd probably buy it.

 

7.)Could we get more dry dock ports, maybe a daytime version? Or a German port, or perhaps Scapa Flow...you guys are doing a real great job on premium ports!

 

8.)Whats the news on armed merchant ships? I feel like that could be a real cool class right there.

 

9.) Please avoid submarines...the one we got caused more problems than it was worth.

 

10.) Your Corgi has nothing on my Dachshund, my 15 year old grumpa can jump a foot in the air and snatch a piece of cheese from my hand and give jaws a run for it's money....I'm completely serious, he will take a finger. 

 

11.) Is there anything we can do to decrease the camping....maybe bring back Ocean or perhaps flatten the islands on some maps so they can clearly be shot over?

 

12.) CV's need to make a come back....back in the day when you camped you ate torps...plenty of us recall those days (and tbh I feel like we could go back to them and there wouldn't be many complaints.)

 

13.) Love the Duca...please give me more....need me an Italian BB. 

 

14.) I'm hopeful there is an expansion into the battlecruiser lines...that could be some serious fun.

 

15.) for the love of **** please no submarines! I don't need an excuse to grow a beard and play das boot....

 

16.) I'd buy an Admiral Scheer or Lutzow if they were 1945 spec'd. 

 

17.) Nurf the god darn Khab....that thing solo's cruisers twice is size easy.

 

Outside of that, great job, and keep it up....I used to be a big naysayer but tbh I'm liking where things are going!

Regarding #3: Imagine if the sale and campaign has started today and there was a significant bug/problem with the patch. If you think you're tired of the Hood posts, the chitstorm from something like that would be ten times as bad.

I'd happily take Gorizia as a tier VIII Italian Premium...

Well, how about nerfing AA? The problem wasn't that AA was too weak, the problem was that every player shot off to the four winds d i c k first, ignoring friendly ships that had AA potential. Part of the balancing for US cruisers was that they had the most potent AA in exchange for not having torpedoes (seriously, the only non-US cruiser above tier four that doesn't have torps is the Moskva, and that's a BB for all intents and purposes). For god's sake, Bismark couldn't even shoot down obsolete biplanes when she was on her own and yet her AA in-game consistently knocks planes out of the sky. I know Russia is pissed over having a piss-poor excuse for a CV, but come on.

Camping problem can be solved by spawning the teams in front of each other.

 

I would be thrilled if WG removed stealth build or at least increased reload time of all weapons and consumables by 20% for stealth build ships. Manly ships best ships. But doubt they would, people love their hiding powers too much.

 

Well, AA builds and mirror MM drove off CVs. An easy icon that ID's AA-specced ships (has at least AFT and any single AA-module) would save the time of memorizing the AA ratings. Removing the mirror MM wouldn't work unless the CV-less team gets AA-specced ships, and even then WG still hasn't addressed upgraded hull AA vs. planes very well.

So I'm sitting here on a wed afternoon at work, talking to the guy running the wows facebook and it suddenly hits me, a few casual ideas I'd like to see.

 

1.) when the Graf Zepplin is released, the Stuka's need sirens....  Oh HELL NO.

 

2.) stop releasing reskins....please...  Reskins cost them nothing.  This is a stupid request imo.  Its not like they're going to magically get more time to make unique ships.  Reskins FTW.

 

3.) When a patch goes live, a ship that is supposed to be running along with it, and the campaign should be released with it....the sizzle behind a patch is lost when people download it, go to port, and see no ship....and the Hood threads got mega old.  not bad

 

4.) I really felt like 6.5 wasn't really a patch...I mean once it went live I didn't really notice anything...it seemed like a "hey we just moved some stuff around... Moving stuff around IS a patch level event.

 

5.) FFS stop with the multi-tiered pricing over time...I'm not gonna pay 100 for a bundle, you know it, I know it, TalonV knows it, you're gonna get my dough...the question here is do you want it now on release, or like three weeks later when you decide to let the cheapskates have it.  This is a poor point.  You'll get your opportunity to buy.  So sorry if it's not as fast as you'd like.

 

6.) Lower the price of the Eugen, or discount it heavily for a week or so...I'd probably buy it.  The price is what it is.  I personally would like a little more ship for the money, but they are going to price how they price.

 

7.)Could we get more dry dock ports, maybe a daytime version? Or a German port, or perhaps Scapa Flow...you guys are doing a real great job on premium ports!  Agree

 

8.)Whats the news on armed merchant ships? I feel like that could be a real cool class right there.  Uhg horrible idea.  Please don't do this.

 

9.) Please avoid submarines...the one we got caused more problems than it was worth.  Agreed

 

10.) Your Corgi has nothing on my Dachshund, my 15 year old grumpa can jump a foot in the air and snatch a piece of cheese from my hand and give jaws a run for it's money....I'm completely serious, he will take a finger.  Buy a real dog.

 

11.) Is there anything we can do to decrease the camping....maybe bring back Ocean or perhaps flatten the islands on some maps so they can clearly be shot over? Camping won't change until the penalty for mistakes is lessened.  Ships simply hit too hard at that tier.

 

12.) CV's need to make a come back....back in the day when you camped you ate torps...plenty of us recall those days (and tbh I feel like we could go back to them and there wouldn't be many complaints.)  No, no they don't.  CVs can die in a fire.

 

13.) Love the Duca...please give me more....need me an Italian BB.  Need less BB's in this game.

 

14.) I'm hopeful there is an expansion into the battlecruiser lines...that could be some serious fun.  Please, make the RN line BCs instead of straight BBs.

 

15.) for the love of **** please no submarines! I don't need an excuse to grow a beard and play das boot....  Since people want submarines so bad, perhaps World of Subs is a title that might interest people.  You can have your armed merchantment there.

 

16.) I'd buy an Admiral Scheer or Lutzow if they were 1945 spec'd.  A lot of people would.  I imagine it's only a matter of time.

 

17.) Nurf the god darn Khab....that thing solo's cruisers twice is size easy. Is balans komrade.  on a serious note, agree with you.

 

Outside of that, great job, and keep it up....I used to be a big naysayer but tbh I'm liking where things are going!

Well, AA builds and mirror MM drove off CVs.

 

not being able to solo entire enemy teams drove off CVs.  They dont like people being able to fight back against them, they just want to hide and delete people without risk.

Some things I agree with, some I don't.

 

That said, they won't stop reskins, and that's because they actually DON'T take time away from other ships being developed. Most lines take at least a year of development for their whole team, a reskin of he class for a new ship maybe takes a couple months tops and doesn't require much if any personal from the actual guys building the ships in game. They don't screw their development cycle, we get new content, everyone wins.

 

Also I want my Pennsylvania, which could be a branch out in the tech tree but we already have her sister in game so.... yeah, I want my reskinned Arizona.

I agree 100% with #17, when a ship outperforms all the other ships in almost all the stats it should be a sign that it needs a major nerf, not a buff to it's HE shells.

More fun when you make them work for it :teethhappy:

 

But I'll bet they stayed in CAs or BBs cause wanted to use ships but decided to snipe in the back cause afraid of being shot at.
