Space Battles?

So I saw the news about this upcoming "space battles" thing they are lining up... am I the only one who thinks this is a stupid idea? I mean I'm as much a fan of SciFi as the next gamer geek but if they are going outside of the WWII realm I would MUCH rather they go with Cold War or Modern Era ships as opposed to the SciFi stuff. Anyone else have any thoughts?

It's their April fool's mode....probably no worse that Bath tub boats....but wasn't really impressed with it. Too hard to see things in that mode with these old eyes.:Smile_amazed:

Its just an April day fun goodness.  Other games do it all the time, nothing wrong with doing something crazy.  You may even like it.

Don't lump space battles in with Bathtub Wars, as Bathtub wars were pretty good.

AS others have said, every year they put out an alternate gamemode for April Fools. You don't have to play it if you don't want to, but they are usually fun and have decent rewards.

If you don’t like it, don’t play it. It’s that easy.

They paid 25 full time people for 2 weeks to make the space battle mode.... isn't that insane? yet they can't come up with a new game mode, or new maps etc. And they stuck making premium ships for monthly bursts of cash. They're gunna run out of premium ships, that's when this game is toast I bet.

For the amount of money this game takes in, it does not yield nearly enough new content. I wonder if Warships is subsidizing the failed World of Planes game, wouldn't doubt it. Either way, it seems understaffed in the core game mechanics department, and bloated with 3D modelers.

I am looking forward to the space mode. Bath tub mode was cool as heck though. Sounds like a lot of fun and a good change of pace from the daily grind. Thanks War Gaming!

I just joined a few months ago... didn't realize this was an April Fool's Day gig... Having said that, if they have the time to set up random April Fool's Day things, I'd actually kinda like to see a Cold War expansion.

Not different enough. Plus, Space Battles is all done with existing assets. (other than ship skins)

The only difference between in-game ships and Cold War versions would be ASMs and SAMs. They would have to come up with new mechanics for guided missiles. As well, it would change the balance between the ship types.
