Minimum F2P Play in WoWS

T1 - T4 co-op Bots in these low tier random battles? 

The continuing Great Wreak aka the CV rework?

The continuing introduction of paper Ships when there is still no Ita BB or Ita DD regular tech tree line?

The lack of Commonwealth and/or European Ships that could be in this game before some farce GW/WG collaboration.

Very little of what WG has introduced to WoWS since Jan 2019 is, imho, an improvement on anything in this game. It is mostly regression.

Hence, I will be doing two things;

1) F2P. Why support a game that, imho, is getting worse with each update. I'm voting with my wallet.

2) Minimal Play. There's a campaign or two I will attempt to finish.

Otherwise, why play a game  where the MM & RNG blatantly arranges  bogus results (minimum 60% of the time).

Did I mention I've played WoWS since late Alpha. WoWS was a good game untill the Great Wreak (aka CV rework) happened.

Ah yes the good old days when cvs weren't mirrored so you could find your team without any and the enemy had 2. Or how about the fail divs bringing t1s on your team into t10 matches etc etc etc.

I did hear that that tier 2 German DD being fail divisions into tier X was epic fun as you could not see the thing to save your life and it could bombard you with torpedoes in rapid succession until you were perma flooding then on to to the next targets lol. Ah I feel bad I missed those days lol.

Don't forget +/-3 matchmaking for battleships! That was always a hoot.

I seriously doubt your going to be able to play less than you have since Alpha AND make a meaningful impact....

Perhaps if you had 20 or 30 THOUSAND battles, it might make a point.

 

Of course, using an alt account on the forums will really get that message accross....

All WGs fault initially & they were corrected.

Again, something that did not last that long.

Nice try you three to imply that the game was somehow worse in it's first four years.  This game by 2017/2018 was excellent - better than what it is now.

I transferred it to Eu Server as I have more ships in that account & there are more players in EU so it seemed to be logical. The account name is 'Aethervoxx' - if you want to check my play record.

I believe you.  If I had a problem with the game and I wanted to share it my playerbase, I would be talking to them.

I remember a match where my Nagato was pulled into a match where the Reds had two strike Midway's, you know, when they would get two torpedo bomber squadrons?  Our team didn't have a CV so you could imagine how THAT went. :Smile_hiding:

I am in the same boat.  Why would I invest money into a game I have no longer have any faith in?

Along with going ftp, I am starting to play less overall.  I even went as far as to work out the minimum battles I would have to play to complete all the daily missions: 2 coop games, 4 operations matches and I am on to something else.

This game could have double the population but repeated blunders and giving the keys to marketing has hindered growth and retention.

It's natural to move on from a game, especially after thousands of hours on it.

If it ain't fun, move on and you may come back with a fresh experience.

Actually before KM DDs time...but IJN DDs had fun w/it.

Yes...but CVs were rarer back then & most times (depending on team assistance...which oddly enough existed back then more often than today) that Yammy would have been in perma flood mode.

Yeah...those glory days disappeared less than 2 months after I bought a T10 camo for m'y Gearing...which is where my spending ended.

ah yes, the joys of trying to hunt down the stealth firing destroyer and being lured into flooding in shallow water, only for the game to end in a draw because points hadnt been invented yet.

I also miss the joys of variable repair costs so everyone freaked out at the slightest scratch of paint because t10 perma camos didny exist nor did any dragon flags to help with the credit sink.

When people complain about the MM these days...I just have to laugh.  

There are definitely still issues but the matchmaker has gotten orders of magnitude better than it was.

Tis true, when I started we still had the +/-3 tier spread. I remember having a t1 ship in a t4 match and laughing that my AA was better than many of the other ships on my team

Haha, and the reds would have two T8s and you'd have a T7. So many complaints in the forums...

That wasn't the Black Swan by any chance, was it? Main armament equal to 3/4 of a Leander's secondaries/heavy AA, AND a quad 40mm pompom, at Tier 1...
