Would you play competitive modes if no premiums were allowed?

Only tech tree ships allowed in competitive modes?  

85 members have voted

  1. 1. Which modes?

    • Kings of the Sea (special events)
    • Clan Battles
    • Ranked Battles
    • Don't limit premiums
    • Limit premiums in certain cases, specify.
  2. 2. Would you try this as a trial run?

  3. 3. muh feelingz

    • I am able to dissociate my urge to play my premiums with the concept of bettering a meta experience
    • I am unable to dissociate the two
    • DON"T LEAVE ME, insert-ship-name. Please explain yourself.
    • These premiums make this tier a better meta, requires explanation.
    • I am a potato, I like bacon, and I will cling on to any shred of strength I have to stave off the impending realization that I am... a potato

Umm people bought these ships with real money. 

I know fair competition is a thing but.. honoring product that they sold is a huge thing too.

Listen, and understand! Those Premium Ships are out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear! And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until one of you is dead!

I think the playing field will be much more even and more interesting for tier 5/7 if they ever do no premium ranked at those tiers again.

Good poll

I consider the premiums useful as trainers, and some can really crush in the right hands. But.

Is it really ok to run your whaler up against "never paid a dime and don't intend to!" Other than as an experiment that proves premiums dominate over tech tree ships?

Is it even a problem in Clan Wars that only have one premium to fret over?

I would be all for it if they expanded competitive modes to 12 v12 and allow CV's. The current gimped 7v7 competitive modes have zero interest for me.

Wouldn't be my preference, but it would be nice to try at least.

While it pains me to say so, Kamikaze would be awful for the Ranked Meta at 5. (I'm sorry Kami, you know I love you.) She's sneaky, has good torps, and no Radar to counter her in a Ranked Format.

 

Back when T7 Ranked was a thing, and before Kaga or the USN Rework, Saipan simply dominated T7 Ranked. It was ludicrous. Haida would also be bad in the right hands, and we all know the "Payfast" Season.

It's already a thing with some tournaments.  To each their own.

I would like non t10 ranked more if I wasn't forced to run my premiums, which are typically the strongest ships at the tier. I love t10 ranked bc there are no real premiums for people to buy. (Ik Salem is technically available for purchase but seeing as it was easy to earn her during go navy it's not an issue as hardly any potatoes actually spent $600 on her)

Do you think any tiers of 7v7 ranked would be much better off without premiums? 

T10? 

T9?

T8?

T7? 

T6?

T5? 

T4?  (ho ho ho) 

 

I do want to see T4 ranked one day. Though its gonna be all CVs, BBs (Courbet and Orion and Wyoming esp) and Clemson... well okay. maybe there might be some DD variation. 

I would play the hell out of T4 ranked.

Go ahead and p*ss off the people that keep this game running.

I have premiums, heck I'd probably run Loyang right now.. Shrug. But I can dissociate my urge to play them and what's more interesting as a meta experience.

Good grief.  I think there is a comparable ship in the tier to most premiums. Heck, most premiums are copies of tech tree ships with some minor differences. 

A good player who is going to do well in competitive modes is likely to do well in a tech tree ship or a premium ship, simply because she/he is a good player and can work with the strengths of a ship.  The crying about premium ships is just plain jealousy and quite frankly if you suck in a tech tree ship you're likely to suck just as hard in a premium, you just won't have that to whine about how the game hates you and is unfair anymore.

You buy some Premium Ships to play this game.  Then come across more and more sh*t saying you can't use your ships.

 

It makes no sense and it would make me, someone that's put money into this game, very upset.  Give me some godd*mn refunds if I'm not allowed to use my ships.

Training? 

Cool history? 

Random battles? Scenarios? 

There is a choice to pick only one competitive mode up there you know. 

There's also that tingy feeling you get when you say no to P2W.

I would be more inclined to play competitive modes if they were restricted to tech tree ships.  But not much more.

I would be much more inclined to play them if they gave up pushing tier ten on us.  They are leaving so much of the game on the table in this regard.

The thing is, Randoms, Operations and Co-Op are all still a thing.  I have a lot of premium ships (well, compared to some), and I wouldn't feel cheated at all if I couldn't run them in competitive matches.  It's not like there isn't precedent - carriers aren't allowed in Clan Battles specifically for balance reasons.

There is no historical battles in this game as it's restrictive and they do not follow the events to begin with, i.e. Cherry Blossom - Empress Augusta Bay are nothing alike.

 

So yes, if I can't use my ships I paid for, give me my money back.

130 Bog is the only true, answer.  She'll burn even Konig Albert down and not break a sweat.

 

And she's a Tech Tree Ship :Smile_teethhappy:

Negatives outweigh the benefits.

Although I do believe that ships such as a Flint and Stalingrad should be discounted from competitive queues.
