Are all T4 and below premiums worthless now?

At this point anything T4 and below is just bots because there doesn't seem to be a new player base. So your T4 and below premium is now effectively a CO-OP only premium due to full games of bots with the occasional real player. So does that mean any new low tier premiums will have a reduced cost,or does that mean an end to low tier premiums?

i cannot understand why any new player wouldnt want to play the game? its like there is some really poor ship class that just makes the game unfun and pushes them away.

I have suggested a game mode like that, 1 v 1 but with bots. I had in mind that the bots could be steered by the player a bit, but this sounds pretty close. Maybe I'll have to go do some low tier random battles, it's been a long long time since I have done randoms. People don't play the low tiers because missions can't be accomplished in them, not even snowflakes.

I would say the excessive 2 cv matches are why everything is dead down there. No premium has sufficient aa to defend itself there.

Yes, but DDs don’t seem to be getting cut anytime soon, so new players will just have to adapt.

judging by the amount of threads related to bots in random battles i would say new players are adapting well to other games.

 They haven't made a new tier IV premium since Imperator Nikolai I in November of 2015.  What does that tell you?  The last tier III premium was Dreadnought in November of 2018.

Time passes quickly it feels like it was just yesterday when I picked up the dreadnought.

It tells me they are leaving good money on the table.

Im not interested in high tier premiums.

I would propose adding more CV's to tiers I-IV but I fear the traffic on the servers would overwhelm the game.  I'm no expert of course.  Worse yet people could be overcome by the fun factor of all the CV's alone.

Perhaps its a safety feature?  Would be a shame to see so many overcome with all the CV fun.

If there were missions at the lower tiers for say flags or even coal, people would do them.

I'd love an excuse to be able to use my old V-25 destroyer more often.  I know it isn't even a premium, but its fun.

Vampire seems to do well enough.

When was Vampire Mouse?

@Ban_CV_Complainers no, they are not worthless.

Even if their ‘value’ lies only in preventing them from being a drop in a container; they are not worthless.

Still love Mikasa, Vampire, Emden, and a few others.

(edit) Might be worth taking Mikasa into Randoms again; Mikasa loves boy heavy games, because bots don’t run away from her secondaries.

If you’ve ever had pet mice, you’d know what little bloodletters they can be... (sharp teeth are sharp...)

They are still good for Naval Battles.

You can get up to 300 ribbons on a co-op mission in an Emden.

It's always worth keeping the premiums, just so you don't acquire them again in any crate. As to your perception about the lack of value since there are bots at tier 4 and lower now, I think for the health of encouraging new players to learn the game it was a smart move by WG. Most folks don't want to be the seal and get clubbed.

I got my Dreadnaught just for the historical value.  I rarely play it but it's fun to put my best Brit BB captain in it and take it for a spin.
