I have been thinking about this a while. If people dont want to be competative or play with people theygo  to co-op. There is a penalty no stats and little rewards .. thats what they chose and they have fun.

 

Having said that there are many miserable (myself included) being put into games with ships they dont enjoy. OK so WOW listen up give everyone opitons to not play with ships they dont like... and yes llke co-op there is a penalty lousy rewards and no stat upgrades. That would be their choice. If you want to upgrad your stats and earn more rewards you play random. If not choose your play style as an option an have fun and be happy.

You cant have it all  sometimes you have to give up something to get something. If not you will be like our Congress.

I'll settle for more game modes, including "relaxed" ones like hybrid PvE/PvP modes. It would be more fun than just yet another variant of team death match in a fishbowl.

Maybe I misunderstand you, but do you propose to have a game mode where you can access all ships without the grind? Or is this something else I am missing?

I don't think that will ever happen, as the grind is core of WGs business model. It is the reason for people to buy premium time, premium ships, spend money on camo and flags etc. So having a game mode where you can just circumvent all of that would be very detrimental to the business model of this F2P game.

This has absolutely nothing with grinding ships. 

Then please clarify what you mean, maybe then we can have a discussion.

On the FB group last week someone posted a picture that they insisted was not a photoshop - it was a 22 v 22, tiers from 5-9.

That's intriguing, yet 22 vs 22 still looks like team death match... unless you add huge maps with a different dynamic and objectives. The upcoming new iteration of Key Battles (without the key) looks intriguing too.

Agreed. Obviously Ocean is an easy way to make a huge map. And I can't imagine how many tier 5s it would take to cook down a tier 9... nor do I really think they should have to. I would however love to see a match where you bring a "fleet" say 3 ships from 3 tiers (in a row.) Everyone starts low tier, as ships sink you move up. Just something a bit different. Probably would only work reasonably with clans or teams.

Maybe if you have other things to do in that environment than fighting T9s to the death. Maybe some sort of mission focused objective you can complete while evading the stronger enemy units?

You mean as far as the Tier 5s vs 9s, right? Not regarding the fleet thing?

I do wonder if there would be a good & fun way to incorporate a PvP/E thing with escorting merchants and various tiers and what not. But not against bots...

Idk if you are familiar with Tarkov's system. Something like that could be implemented, it is a mixed PvE/PvP environment, huge maps, loot based. Imagine snatching some transports from a convoy and having to escort & extract them. Or something like the world of EVE translated to warships environment.

If I'm understanding this right you want to be able to exclude ship types or even specific ships? If so WG have said in the past that this wouldn't happen.

The coding for it would be difficult at best and at low server population times waiting times could become longer as MM tries to put teams together.

I can definitively relate to that, however, it does not explain the lack of clarity in the OPs post.

I was only trying to write what I thought the OP was trying to say, not explain why there was a lack of clarity.  If I had to guess, I'd say that he simply did a poor job of writing what he wanted his post to mean.

Apologies, the second half of my sentence was not directed at you, but the OP. And I agree with you on that OP did not a great job in making the problem easy to understand.
