Why?

 

Because WG has repeatedly lied to us, added crap that only a 12 year old would like and ignored what most of the player base has asked for.

Actually, the "fleet" part of the snail game is pretty good, but the UI is tedious af and it's another Russian company.

War on the sea, ultimate admiral dreadnoughts, and Uboat.

Uboat is nearly finished but the other two are still in a beta stage of development.

That one isn't very good according to the reviews on steam, most of them saying that the developer doesn't listen to the player base. We all know how that ends up now don't we? :Smile_child:

Ultimate admiral dreadnoughts is from the same company. I would be very careful and do your research when looking into that one.

I always assumed there were plenty of good naval games out there, assuming you want a fleet-based singleplayer RTS.

Of course, if that's what you want, why are you playing this in the first place?

And that's where you, me, and everyone here, can't speak for everyone. 

You Can easily find posts requesting Italian battleships. You can easily find posts asking for nerfs to rockets...

All these people who come in here and saying "The community requests this" are speaking of their own little community in their discord, their twitch, YouTube, or CC community, not the populus. 

I think the only popular idea, that would get 75% of players backing, is for something to happen with CV-Ship interaction.

That and more maps.

I am really looking forward to

Sea Power : Naval Combat in the Missile Age

Still gonna be awhile, maybe a year, but once thats out, I am too. I should have all lines here up to 10 and barring other changes, I think its about run its course for me. I am not looking forward to subs here and the ships/classes being added just flat out dont appeal to me.

 

Edit to add that doesnt mean I'll never play again, I still go back fire up CSGO, but it just means this wont be my main game that spend $$$ and time on.

New maps would help out tremendously, for me anyway. 200+ ships on the same ole tired maps is well... Getting old. Honestly, it's one of the top reasons why I quit buying any new ships.

Unfortunately, if there were a credible alternative out there I'd imagine WG would be a lot less cavalier about those sorts of things, so they didn't lose out en masse to the competition.

Wrong.  People asked for most of those things.  Yes, people asked for Italian BBs, as you said.  People also asked for a Lexington class CC.  People also asked the RTS CVs to be reworked.  People also asked for rocket planes to be nerfed.

I don't recall requests for captain skills to be reworked,  but I do recall the occasional request to have captain skill point maximum raised to 21.

Are these non-generic people sufficient? There's about 2000 more search results on the google page.

Uboat is nearly finished but the other two are still in a beta stage of development. 

uboat is, unfortunately, a little -too- realistic, in that 90% of the time you finish your patrol without ever even spotting a convoy or ship to make an attack run on.  It ends up being a very boring game of "let's watch a world map in 5x speed"

Interesting enough the first game on the list is wows :Smile_teethhappy: While the majority are console games :Smile_hiding: it seems wargaming has a nice niche going on :fish_cute_2: Unless a certain company that will not be a name comes out with something :Smile_child:

War on the Sea looks pretty fun if you are into historical stuff.

For the cost of a single ship in WeeGee's  fantasy grind fest (WoWs), you get ALL the ships in the USN and IJN. You have individual control of EVERYTHING, including attacks by single scout planes, subs, etc. It's amazing that a single game can include so much - the entire Pacific campaign, playable from both sides - in such a detailed and fun way (subs alone work WAY better than the trash that WeeGee is trying to get working - see for yourself: https://youtu.be/PtuXYOZ7AHQ?t=947) compared to the cost in both time and money that WG wants from its 'players'.

that new War on the Sea is looking pretty good, theyve basically dealt with the really bad bugs and glitches from what ive seen and they have the possibility to be branching out from just the US vs Japan with there being tabs for Mediterranean and Atlantic campaigns, not to mention the Tokyo Express mod that adds a crap ton of ships to the US and Japan so youre not just pounding squads of DDs in the late game, im thinking of maybe picking it up this Christmas

And some opposed the RTS CV change and rocket plane nerf.
