@Crysantos Can you get an answer of how this would affect ships like the Stalingrad & Bourgogne as those obviously cannot be grinded again/aren't part of a tech tree(and lets be honest as absurd as this training center is being forced to get 90k extra steel would be stupid).
But regarding the idea as a whole, I've invested a mammoth amount of time & money into this game. Being placed into a position where I'm basically being told that counts for nothing makes me seriously reconsider ever touching this game again should it make it in. And if I took even a brief break I wouldn't want to come back and feel left behind or be behind the curve.
The time investment required is too big and honestly I don't find grinding a tree to be fun. I play lower tiers very occasionally and generally only if there is a fun event or random tiers in a division. Primarily I want to play at tier 7 to 10 with ships that I wanted to play as my end goals. To me this reads more like an attempt to create a XP/Credit sink to address what is a inflated economy compared to my experiences with WoT. There are surely better ways of doing this like coal for free xp, which would net you doubloon conversion payments(personally I'd love a way to speed up my steel grind but that is another story). Or got 4 months til your ship coupon is back? Refresh your coupons for a free xp investment! Etc.
Alternatively if we MUST play through an entire tech tree line, the reward has to be cosmetic in nature, not performance based.That is just wrong and shows an apparently very poor game design department. Personally I would likely stop playing if this became a reality and just the fact it was considered is extremely alarming let alone that it got so far along the production path. As someone that has spent thousands upon thousands on your games that should show the depth of distrust/alarm I have for this.
