Separate Servers Should Be Coded To Each Forum

Bit extreme, but...

 

Our forums are not heard, all other servers have far more influence on our game than we do. 

The ships are buffed and such on the basis of other servers.

I don't care if they have to nerf and buff ships by the server just to them work. AKA Different worlds of WoWS.

It may be extreme, but it is possible to make variations of WoWS. One version for NA, one for EU, one for RU, etc...

 

Make each server tailor made to that specific audience. If they do this, they will gain numbers in all regions. Best part is that people will eventually go to the best variant, and then they can make an international version.

 

 

 

Weird idea, just came to mind... Discuss I guess?

I can only imagine the amount of extra work this would involve.

I would think not, as all the servers are already seperate. Hence why some servers have ships we don't.

You would just have to make each server an independent entity. Have each server be coded the way the forums want.

Not gonna happen.  To much effort.

 

It's a exaggeration to say they only make buff/nerf decisions based on the complaints of regional forums and I absolutely do not want to see flavor of the month buffs.

We barely have a marketing or customer service team, do you really think we're going to get our own separate development team just for WoWS NA?

The only server population they truly care about keeping happy is the Russian server since that is where the bulk of their money comes from. Unless that changes, they will cater mostly to the Russian server population for the foreseeable future.

This is a completely unrealistic idea.  I just can't imagine any sane software company trying to continuously develop and maintain multiple versions of the same program in this way.  It seems like total insanity to me.

Yet if they do this, they will continue to have their vodka cow.

The main devs could give less than two sh*ts about us, let the NA and EU get micro devs to cater to us.

That would eat into their profits and companies, even companies in Russia and Belarus, only really care about the bottom line. Why would they want to spend double or triple the cost?

You can't earn a profit without an audience.

Of course some 70-80% of their profits come from RU, so...

Screw us I guess :(

 

Or they could invest in this idea, get a population, and get even more profits.

Yeah, even more reason to invest in this idea.

The pros out number the cons  on this one.

True but the insane number of players there makes that a moot point. We are not even a drop in the bucket in terms of the total amount of money they make from just that one server cluster alone.

I guess I always imagined WGNA just pushed play on whatever was sent down from Russia. Does WG do any software development outside of Russia/Belarus.

They basically do, they just wait for patches to come in an download them in.

We have CMs that are supposed to be listening to us, but we're ignored (all of us, not the forumers only).

What good are CMs that can't get changes done due to our relative size.

I'd think we have a few. Maybe.

Other servers are catered to more because of larger populations. It looks like NA gets the shaft because our playstyle is no where near as aggressive as EU/RU and the game is being balanced based on worldwide statistics.

Ever see one of their videos with developer interviews where they didn't have to translate what was being said in Russian?

No, but that doesn't mean we don't have devs.

More likely, the extra amount of money that WG will have to pay for the new employees.. I doubt it will happen.

 

So far, only Chinese server is independent, because of partnership with WG.

Why would you do that?  SEA isn't even ran by WG.

Balancing ships for each server is completely unrealistic. Obviously the OP is not a software engineer. It would be a complete waste of resources. The effort involved would cost WG far more than it would worth.
