Ship still in battle

Ok, I haven't played WoW a lot, but I don't really like how when you get sunk and go back to port you have to wait for the battle to finish to get into another battle with your ship, I actually think that is a really discouraging game mechanic, it punishes people for being in the first few sunk which you can't always help. this should be removed from the game.

The problem would be people "power leveling" through ships by rushing in, damaging what they can, dying, then starting a new battle and repeating the process. I promise you that you would see more yoloung shitters that don't care about playing for the win, if they were to change this.

You could always pick a different ship and CPT...

What if I don't want to play another ship, what if I want to play the ship I was just sunk in a battle with? this is a stupid mechanic in my opinion, I get sunk, then I wait around for 5,10,15 minutes waiting for a battle to finish just so I can play my ship I want to play, I'll just end up going and playing another game and giving WoW a bad review because of wait times.

I don't always die that fast, sometimes I do because of being targeted by carriers (Which shouldn't even be in this game) and I get ganked right off the hope other times I last 5 minutes, sometimes all the way to the end, and if people have concerns about wait times then WG should listen, and what "economy" in the game? you earn credits and spend credits, there is no real economy in this game.

This is why having two or more grinds at once is good. If one gets sunk, go for the other one.

I suppose 2 grinds would be fine, but I'd still prefer to play the vehicle I want, I've played a lot of war thunder and you don't get punished for dying early in a match, you can just jump into another match, I prefer that system.

Because then people wouldn't do ANYTHING but pretend they are playing co op, Leroy Jenkins would feel right at home here, hell you want to get rid of ff while you're at it ? every thread seems like you want to keep the training wheels on.

I don't believe that at all, I still play objectives and try to win, even if I wasn't punished for dying early on like we are now I would always try to win, get more points and stuff that way.

You play CA'a and BB's, and I'll bet you have no clue where a DD wants to set up, and if you die early you overextended on your own and should die early.

DD's are not as lethal as they used to be hell I believe all DD's and CA's need heals but whatever, maybe use your WASD hacks more or use 3 points for vigilance, hell you play the German line you want to write a review and know nothing of what's coming for you in that line regarding torps ? uhmmmmmm….

I don't charge forward actually, and I always stay with other ships, and writing a review and actually publishing it are 2 different stages, I"m only at the taking notes stage boy.

Like others have said, if you die so early that you have a 15-minute wait time for a 20-minute game to end, something went horribly wrong somewhere. Pick another ship and go.

There's no need to rebalance the entire game economy.

The idea is, if the game rules keep you from having fun, play another game. Games are supposed to be fun.

But by all means, continue waiting instead of playing other ships. It's your choice.

TBH, if you're going to play another game because you can't play one ship continually, and have no interest in any of the other hundreds of ships in the game, you won't be missed.

I've been asking for this myself for ages, always get told its to "stop the yolo players"....as if they don't just yolo anyway.

IMO its the "You suck at the game" punishment screen and is designed to make you wanna log off and play other games.    You can claim its something else, but thats all it actually manages to accomplish.

This isn't warthunder.

This is now your second "I just started playing but the whole game should be changed for me" thread.

Unfortunately, it's to keep people from doing exactly what @TaylorSwift said, and going into games, yoloing as fast as they can die, in hopes it would be a win, and they wouldn't have to actually <gasp> play the game to make XP.

Pick a 2nd line to push down, and play the other line if you die early.

That's not completely true, either.  Depends on what tier you're in, and repair costs, repair time, etc. even in WT.
