Euro DD line and I am still working through, granted I go through lines quicker normally but I despise this line. But, I will eventually grind it......at tier9 now. RU tech tree cruisers just went live, combined with a new line of CV's that are for money only? Fake US BB's ...., Subs creeping in the back recesses........   All in such a short time....

Another tier 8 ranked... BTW there are like 26 ships for sale at tier 8 for dubs. Wonder why it's tier 8?

I need another 12 ships like I need a hole in my head.

I beg of you WG, come out with a sustainable business plan. I will pay it.  I am not sure who I am laughing at more and or harder, myself for what I have paid, or those paying for these new ships....... granted this is a guess but what are we getting for all these new ships? For the most part they all do the same thing, 2 new maps a year per 50 new ships and no new competitive game modes......

No Space camp and Halloween don't count.

I see a malicious cash grab that will end one day with me attempting to log on and finding out the game is shut down. And if you eventually go to Blimps tethered to ships, that was my idea and expect full compensation.

Play your favorite ships and be happy. If you're grinding for no reason, that's on you.

I don't look at it as a malicious cash grab. They need to make money to keep the thing going. But the sole focus on more and more ships is driving me nuts. I have 70-80 ships in port and that already overwhelms me, I have zero desire for more. I have 400k coal, 400 million credits, and 2.4 million xp, and don't know what to spend it on - let alone actual cash. I wish someone at WG would think of creative ways to increase motivation and interest.There must be enough players that want more and more ships and fork out the bucks, but holy smokes at some point supply has to exceed demand.

LOL, i love how everyone complains and yells cash grab.  Who the heck cares, people are playing the game and spending money.  Why would WG change when they are making money.  Instead of complaining all the time people should just either play the game or leave.  Bunch of children these days.

The game will eventually shutdown (although I foresee a server merge before that happens), but as long as they make money out of it the lights will stay on.

Be thankful the whales are around.

Also,... why do you grind lines you hate?

Still no global campaign mode / no investment in a kick [edited]story DLC type mode. Bizmark, Yammy, Midway, Leyte Gulf. North Atlantic etc... They are a cookie cutter cut and paste shop at this point. They do that well but they do not innovate.

Ironically I have that many 19 point captains.

There is no indication that WG is financially unstable.

Its a popular tier and has always had a ton T8s for sale.

So why are you grinding?

but what are we getting for all these new ships?

Where in the world are you getting the idea that we as players should be getting anything for getting new ships? The transaction works the other way around  we give either time or money and in return we get ships.

Not that you play competitive modes anyway.......

Gotta point out subs, CV rework, NTC and RB .

Its interesting to see the down votes and comments by players who have so many ships left to obtain. I wish I could go back to that point.

Don't know how you could possibly tell who was downvoting you .  I mean you could do what some of us do and instead of farming ships  and chasing events you could try to become a unicum player in some ships.

Joyous_Vibes my friend who helped me out with advice when I was lost . Forget about it don't try and do every thing they throw at you it will make you crazy .

Go at your own pace and enjoy the game if you can .There a big company there trying to make money you cant blame them .

I know your smart enough not to get sucked into it all. Just buy what you want grind what you want and ignore every thing else .

Hope I see you out there soon.

Right, it is everyone's choice to spend their money on this game.  That is what keeps the business going.  

However, I would like to see more of a "housecleaning update" instead of more ships and more lines.  Some ideas were already mentioned - but could you imagine the history buffs that would play operations like Leyete, Pearl, Midway, Jutland.....and thus want to venture into randoms, ranked, clans.  All the while spending money.

This is what happens when you posy anything that dares to criticize WG..  I just write it off as WG employees posing as forum posters. There is a caustically aggressive  nature to this forum, where by anyone with thoughts is quickly driven off with bullying..  I assume this is how WG prefers it to be... they have told me there is no problem, as have the other "employees" ...

Im not I thought it was publicly available its not.   Will remove the offending sentence Though I still don't see any indication anywhere that WG has a cashflow problem.

Just wrong  people post negative opinions on WG and what they do constantly.   CV rework alone has generated hundreds and hundreds of threads.   I find it fascinating that you somehow don't expect negative feedback on overly negative posts.

eviltane---All of that IS cookie cutter, or not needed or contributing to overall gameplay. SUBS is just a cash grab. Global War Campaign/Story driven DLC missions is something that would be innovative.

It's hard to communicate with you because you hide your stats. Not because of win rate, or PR. But simply experience. You may have 20k games and not understand my point or 200 games and not understand my point. It's hard to explain my point when i don't have any reference to what you have experienced.

This is what happend to Mechwarrior online.  They kept pushing and pushing new mechs each one power creeping.  year later the whole player base left.

WG can be Muppets at times, but they don't do anything with malice.

Oh, and don't grind lines that aren't fun.

That's the thing with gaming companies these days.  At what point does turning a fun pastime into a virtual casino become malice?  

And with publicly traded companies, is it the company or is it the competition or is it the market that forces their hand even if they don't want to be malicious?

To some extent we're all the frog in the pot coming up to a slow boil.  And, unfortunately, I'm not sure there's anywhere safe to jump to.
