The 0.7.8 public test notification post lists copper as a currency.  Anyone know what copper is going to be used for?

It looks like a new Resource for the Arsenal, like coal and steel.

Quote

If you gain 1st Rank, you will receive a new resource for the Arsenal of the Public Test—Copper. On the Public Test server only, you will be able to exchange Copper for new permanent camouflage patterns for Tier VIII ships: Z-23—The Last Conquest and Edinburgh—Arctic.

I think it will be a dedicated resource to get special camo. Since the patch stated that we will be able to buy unique camo for Z23 and Edin with copper

I think this is the only item announced at this point, and if I'm not mistaken, it's only on the Public Test server for now.  They may just be testing something and it ends up we use copper to buy something entirely different.  No real way to know at this point unless you happen to be on the WG payroll.

I was worried as well, just too much going on in that department and it is turning into a mess. I have half a billion credits, 17k in doubloons, 80k in coal, 700k in Free XP and absolutely nothing that I want to use any of those currencies on. Lets just add another worthless currency to the game, maybe several more just to make it more annoying.

Yeah I have seen SO, SO many game companies do this and it just leads to confusion and leads to players quitting in frustration.

Many choices are good.

Too many choices are bad.

It seems to me that WOWS is good because of ships.  Buying ships, upgrading ships, grinding ships.  Then switching to new ships.

More new currencies appears like a trip off of the path.

How many currencies do we intend to have? Doubloons, XP, Oil, Coal, Steel, Copper... etc etc etc....  I'm sorry, I think we're getting a bit out of hand... can we PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give me something to spend the almost BILLION credits I have built up, or the 50000+ OIL my clan has built up in our maxed out port before I start collecting ANOTHER currency?

Let's see what we are up to now.

We now have XP, free XP, credits, doubloons, coal, steel, oil, copper, and "rumor" molybdenum.

Seems simple enough for retaining new players...........:Smile_sceptic:.

GG WG.

I think Wargaming LIKES to lose players all three of the persons I got started in this game have quit.:Smile_facepalm:

For various reasons, but what the heck the next boat load of new players is just around the corner.

I have told my clan mates SO MANY times I wish I could give them my credits and XP and Capt XP....  I mean I have almost 3 million Capt XP, I have about 5 million(maybe more) free XP.... I have all the tier X's...  I free XP up every line and play like 10-15 battles in each tier buying every ship cause ya know.... credits....  This is so dumb....

That has been my experience as well. I don't even bother anymore getting RL friends into the game. They get to tier 6 and realize how effed up the MM is and a bunch of other poor business stuff and move on.

I don't think this is the case, TBH, I have been playing since the early Alpha days, and have NOT lost interest... Some of the stuff they have added has kind of made me worry... like ship re-rolls instead of using the RIDICULOUSLY LARGE amount of content still out there.... like the re-roll ships(IE: Helena=Boise=other Boise or the Kamikaze=Kamikaze R=Fujin)

Well I still post on social media my bring a friend, BUT most gamers that I have chatted with have a poor opinion of Wargaming and most of it comings from experience from WoT

Definitely starting to look like WG doesn't like the amount of silver in circulation, so they're making new currencies for the consumer to buy.  Sad to see them making this mistake on top of an old one.

I keep at it for my own reasons I have 17K battles on my alt account. But with the way perma camis are handled without compensation when they nerf ships just cost my clan and the game 3 players. Fraud is something that pisses Military veterans off so they left the game and moved on.

Fraud?  I am a retired Navy Vet (as of today actually), but not entirely sure what you're talking bout.
