Finding the Fun in a Post-Patch World

After the most recent patch I, like many others, found the new Capt. skill to be a major disappointment. Well we have all be down this road before, so we carry on as best as we can. I am finding that playing one or two ships which consistently perform well in the new meta works for me. I don't worry about completing directives they tend to take care of themselves.  Just go out and make your own fun in the V-world that War Gaming has provided. Enjoy!

There have been many decisions that WG have made and I do feel the enjoyment levels of the game have dropped for me.

My time playing the game has therefore dropped and inevitably I will leave for other games I find more compelling. It can still be fun at times, and I will have good memories. :Smile_honoring:

I found my fun by making progress on my backlog of unread books.

My old clan went there.  They are still there.  I can't play that game one handed or I'd be there.

Me too.  John Ringo is a favorite of mine.  Webber as well; but, has stopped writing about Honor Harrington.......drats.

Alas, I find myself in this very position......  Playing time receding to "just to see how bad it's gotten"....  Old clan hasn't uninstalled; and, we play Narai as a Division and have fun.  But, everyone else has uninstalled.  Still looking for that "other title" and I've been re-playing Fallout 4 quite a bit.         :Smile_honoring:  hooah.

The game is still installed in my table top PC . Finally made the decision to say bye bye after playing since Beta so my 402 ship shall collect dust maybe I may come back in a year or so to see how thing are but this last upgrade pushed me over the edge . Started playing a different game which to my surprise HOOKED me and very enjoying to play but can be just as expensive if you're not carful . The game is called Rise of Kingdoms and I've met players in my clan from all over the world all at different time zones from china and japan to players in Russia and Europe Great game but also with plenty of whale players but still a very enjoying game to play.....Bye  bye..............................

I was really disappointed for the first week or so, and I've pretty much given up playing my secondary ships and super cruisers, but I'm really surprised by the HUGE drop off with my friends, most really expected some talk from WG about tweaking the skills but the silence has just made them move on to other games.

*shrug*

Cut up on my playtime and when I'm playing WoWs, the "fun" I find is builds made to grief BBs, which in itself is cancerous :Smile_sad:.

Which is bad, considering I planned on playing BBs more as I have somewhat neglected the class.

in the beginning i was dissapointed with the new skill system but now i actually have fun by trying everything out and resetting the skills all the time for free.

i really like that i can use one captain on different ships and types so the training goes faster than normal.

The new "system" is great IMHO, I really like how we can train a captain with skills appropriate for different types of ships. This is a huge improvement to the game. The only thing I don't like about the skill rework, are the skills and the cost of skills. Some of them are just not worth the points they are asking and a few really need tweaking, most notably the "Grease the Gears" skill. If you look at the complaint posts, they are always focused on the skills themselves and not the skill system. I know that is a minor point for many but it is a significant difference for the game itself.

Some of them are pretty good.  Love having extra active time on my hydro, radar, smoke, etc.

When people ask me why I still want to play this game after all that's happened, telling me to quit and play something else? Why would I possibly want to play this game anymore?

 

This is why

the particular skills are not that important at this point, they are meant to be adjusted at some point down the road. What's important is the new structure with different trees for every type and multiclass ability for the captains...

Different skills for each type, has turned out to be the worst part of this rebork. 

As for the skills themselves, they're the only part that actually matter.
