    The Beginning is a Very Delicate Time

    A human being Too many people buying cheap (for GW that is) boxes and boxes of AM conscripts and chinning off expensive tanks. "We will see to that" they nerf conscripts and make tanks very good again. People are now buying tanks upon tanks. Same marketing strategy. This isn't a new thing.

    Spot on. Hence why there are no tutorials, said it all along. As well as what ships people are and aren't playing or have too many of. They then address that accordingly. Hence why you see constant nerfs/buff to ships that don't need it. Games Workshop employ the same strategy in war-gaming. All to get us to grind a line and in time, spend money.

    You enjoy it, I enjoy it. But that does not mean something is morally healthy. Don't take things on face value. What you see is a navy game that is mostly enjoyable with fantastic ship designs and good graphics. It's great socially and It's the only game of it's type on the market. On the surface it's good right? I mean I still play it don't I? However, underneath this shinny veneer tooth is a rotten core. WG dodge tax, they employ underhand business/philological tactics, they lie constantly, they have nothing but contempt for the play base, they constantly mug off testers, they sell gambling boxes, they don't listen to even some of their most die-hard employees and they balance ships on "money spreadsheets". Just a FEW of the many things WG have done and will continue to do. Hence why the whole system is not healthy and i am under no illusion. But some people can't or simply don't wanna see anything beyond their noses and just wanna play this game and sail lovely pixel ships. Fine, they can live in blissful ignorance and many people do, it's the easier path at the end of the day as life it hard enough. I will continue to play this game as i enjoy it enough to carry on (clan stuff), but i haven't spend a single penny on it for a while as i don't believe in what i am spending the money on. I understand the throw-away culture now so i can understand many that don't. They buy the ship without thinking about the over-all picture, like a blood diamond. WG goal is money. Fun and balance can take a hike and they know it's working and it will continue to do so. I accept that, many can't and wont.

    The game is not healthy, but the money is. Money wins everytime. I hate it mate, you hate it, new players hate it but until people wake up, it's not gonna change.

    And those that know anything about Cyprus and Russia (Russians practically built half if not nearly all of the holiday resorts and hotels) you can see why. The Russian mafia is VERY strong in Cypurus. If you see a black Mercedes driving by a white chap, 9/10 he's Russian mafia. Most if not all the bouncers in Paphos and Limassol and are Russian. It's a Russian tax haven. I know because i was involved with a number of "meetings" with the Sovereign Base Area Police and spent 2 years there. You would not believe the amount of Spies that are currently active on that small island, from all sides. Sorry if that's going off topic but yeah.

    You click battle and....Do what ever the hell you want. That isn't hard. No, this is a very casual gamer game. You don't have to think to sail a pixel ship and there is nothing to say you have to do anything. Just sail a ship and fire guns/rockets. Some people just wanna do that and couldn't careless about getting better. Please see CK2 or HoI4 for un-casual game where not knowing anything about anything wont get you far at all.

    Precisely. Precisely. Bob on. This is here and now and this generation pays money. Money that we never would, could or had to spend. Just look at that Fortnite?

    I know more about life than you and your siblings ever will. No disrespect intended. Ok pal, no worries. You have your own opinion just like mine. Sorry, you said something about knowing little about life? Bless him

    He has a massive point and a moral point. but that does not factor into WG thinking. We have to come to peace with that or you will just frustrate yourself. But those players got through this apparent "crap" and hence why we have 45% WR at tier 10. But the system works for WG, else they wouldn't be doing it.

    Because the next 4 will. And the books say it will.

    New player: "Getting fed up of this bloody silver line ship, it's crap, i wanna win and have a ship that is strong" "can't stand this tier, i wanna skip and play a better tier" " getting fed up losing credits, new a premium ship or commo" They then go buy a Premium ship. Job done. Frustration = Money. Marketing/management classes? It's called the class of life.
