Are you Kidding World Of Warships? I love this game so much but the steady influx of premium ships is a bit to much. I understand that a steady stream of cash is needed to run a business but

can we please maybe have some time and manpower spent making new maps or maybe more clan resorces such as website like tanks. I spend allot of money on this game and I do it with no regrets. But the amount your asking for the Kidd is just to much. I have seen a increase in the price a premium ships and the frequency in witch they are being released. I will remain a faithful 

player and customer of Warships, Tanks, Airplanes, but please maybe spend some time in other areas. Respectfully ChariotSoldier  Havoc Clan Commander.

Yes sir and I am very excited but I still feel they could do more in other areas.

You do realize there are more than one team working on different things.

 

I mean I really love this idea that one team of developers do everything. It really doesn't work that way.

Again I understand the you need a plan to bring in cash. I am a business man myself and I wish no ill will on them. But I think its like a car. You spend tons of money on the engine to make it the fastest but the body looks just just ok.

FTFY

As for the price of the Kidd, it's in line with other tier 8 premium DDs, unless of course, you think that they too  are overpriced.  Then again, what premium ships do you think are not over priced, if any?

As IronWolf said, they have different teams working on this stuff.  You can't take all your New Warship Design people and throw them on Maps for a month to make a bunch.  They get in the way and lower productivity.  I deal with this a lot as an architect.  If I tell a client that it'll take me 12 weeks to produce a set of working drawings for their snazzy new building, they want to know why I can't just pull someone from another project and cut it to 6 weeks, because two people should cut the time in half, right?

Well, I know I think all the premiums are overpriced, but then I'm a cheap old Scotsman at heart.  Regardless of any issues I might have with pricing overall, WG seems to at least be pretty consistent with how they price their premiums.

WG has many departments, the ship modeling, and 3D art department would not do anything besides making new ships. It is therefore impossible for WG to "spend some time in other areas" anymore they already are for the responsible departments.

The price for the USS Kidd is reasonable for me, especially for a tier 8 premium destroyer with great historical values.

I'm just glad they released another group of destroyers without threatening torpedo armaments into the tier 8 dd matchmaking, makes my life easier :Smile_playing:

Agreed, EXCEPT for the price of Free XP premiums, which if you pay for them by buying 100% of the gold required to convert the XP to Free XP, you'll find that the price of those premium ships is about 150% the cost of a regular premium ship.  Thus, IMO, the free XP premiums are grossly overpriced and should have a cost that's inline with regular premium ships.

Harbinger, personally this is exactly why most likely I'll never buy the Kidd.  I don't like playing USN DDs strictly as gunboats, particularly the high tier ones.  And I'd find the Kidd to be entirely unenjoyable and thus a waste of 40-some dollars.  If I want to play a gunboat, I'll play my Kiev or my Khaba.

Adieu. I bid thee farewell.

Unfortunately they seem to be missing the "fix broken stuff" and "make new map" departments...

I think that is the gist of his post...

For reals! They really need to...

Touche! Praise be for thy fair points.

A dedicated Macbook customer experience department is also in dire need.

I wasn't really thinking about FreeXPrees like Nelson and Missouri.  I think WG assumes that most people will only pay to convert for some smaller portion of the cost.  Sure, if you had to pay full price for Missouri by converting 750K elite XP it comes out to what, about $120 IIRC?  That's exorbitantly expensive.  And I know full well that there are some players out there who did exactly that.  Then you have cheapskates like me who are content to wait until they have enough free XP.  Nelson didn't cost me a penny, and I'm already back up to about 75K free XP so Missouri will be mine someday (if the game goes on that long!)

The average player is going to fall in the middle somewhere, and the unique mechanics of free XP purchase lets the player decide how impatient or cheap they want to be.  I think that was the intent, that the high cost would encourage players to be patient.  Unfortunately, it probably does take advantage of some personalities that just "gotta have it nao!", regardless of whether it was intentional or not on WG's part.  Maybe we need to sign some folks up for Warships Anonymous or something.

How about making a couple of these new premiums purchasable with doubloons.. I have 10,000 sitting there doing nothing. Like said earlier, converting the XP for the free XP ships is a ripoff. The Nelson is totally overpriced, I'm not going to convert the free XP for it. I guess it wouldn't technically be a rip off for me (Half priced halloween crate doubloons)... not everyone is willing to spend 100$ to get a good deal via volume tho.

I'd like to think that the money earned via premium shop will get more WG employees to work on new maps too, but I'm just naive and helpless.
