You know I liked having clan battles and ranked seasons alternating and having some time between the 2. Now though we have ranked and clan battles happening at the same time with ranked sprints and events thrown in at the same time. So can y'all just chill please? I get that some people don't play ranked or clan battles but some of us do all of it (or at least we try to). Can we go back to alternating clan wars and ranked seasons and maybe doing ranked sprints and events in between or overlapping some instead of running at the same time? It's just getting to be a bit much at times and I'd hate to miss out on something for lack of time.

8 days advanced notice on Clan Battles and they're not even giving us any details yet besides the fact that it's 8v8.  No tier, no info on if there'll be carriers (and if so, will they use the "carriers only provide minimap spotting for teammates" mechanic that they were testing out?).  Nice.

WG's business model and understanding of their customers seems to be telling them that they absolutely have to keep us engaged, one event after the other, often overlapping.  I guess they think if they let things sit still for too long we'll all stop playing, or at least stop spending money.  I don't know.  I find it overwhelming personally.

Yes very much so !  I mean we just got done with a months break and I was going to organize some scrimms,  get callers into training rooms etc. Now we might as well give them the rest of this week off again as ill be putting the pressure on to show up 4 times a week again for a month and a half.

 

  @FemennenIy   I know this wasn't your decision but if you could please pass on that more break time and especially  more notice would be greatly appreciated.   It takes a while to get my dudes organized and warmed up ,  they almost all work and have family lives etc and having to put the screws to their thumbs so quickly again puts stress on internal structures of the clans.

Throughput is revenue to them.....  It will only get worse when the "gimmick modes" start up...........and, that is, in point of fact, how they make money...  More = revenue.

It's not just Clan Battles and Ranked.

It's also the non-step Events and Directives and whatnot. 

Wargaming REALLY needs to back off a bit and do the big grindy Events every other month.

I adore this game dearly, but I am starting to burn out of it hard. One event an update was already pushing it, now we are looking at arcs, CBs, ranked, personal grinding for Ohio...

 

The list just never ends!

I don't see the problem. Is not having more to do better than less? I understand the burnout issue but I am burned out of randoms and enjoy the campaigns and ranked play. 

You don't have to play Clan battles even if they are offered?

the video accompanying the patch notes stated T10, no CVs, and up to two BBs.

Thanks!  I would not have thought to look for the video.  I avoid video news as much as possible.  Just give me the text and let me get through it at my own pace.

They have an engagement problem. And they seem to think that spamming unending events and competition will somehow solve it.......:Smile_sceptic:

It was almost 0 this morning, we are pretty chill.
But not everyone is playing CB, and not everyone is playing ranked. So, we give you ability to choose what events do you want to participate in, instead of just wayting, while those other players are having fun.

At the cost of burning out your dedicated playerbase!

 

In the end WG is in it to prolong game longevity so I still have faith in your best judgement, but these rapid fire events are a lot of development and hype just to burn a lot of people out.

For everything offered in the game participation is voluntary so if anyone gets burnt out it is because they choose to get burnt out.

I guess the question is how many people have the attitude "I hope there is always an event going on so there's something to do, but I don't mind if I can't do all of them" and how many people have the attitude "I want complete every event, and claim every reward, and if there are too many I get frustrated".  From my experience it's mostly the latter, but maybe being in one of the top competitive clans means I'm dealing with a different group of people than the average customer.

Jokes on them, I'm so burned out on WoWS I barely am excited about my favorite game mode (Clan Battles).

Agreed. Nobody is forcing these people to do clan battles and all the events.

They can simply dip out if they want.

Infact, I think clan battles should be a more permanent game mode like it was in Halo 2. (I'm old school, but Halo 2 had the best clan battles I can think of)

I think the video said two battleships were allowed

I’m playing neither atm? One is a competitive mode (a mode type I couldn’t care less about,) my clan is too small for, and the other a competitive mode having no more use than being a means to add another flag to my collection.
