    Yeah, pretty much my response as well...

    Update 0.10.1 - Updated Brawls

    I really didn't see myself coming back to the game especially after the Cmdr rework but as much as it pains me to say it I really like 1v1 format...I spec one ship (Takao) and go for it. It's not easy but that means I just have to use the grey cells a bit more and out think my opponent and most of the time I've been not bad at it. BB's can be a hand full but as long I as give as good as I get I'm ok with a loss...CV's on the other hand are a PITA and the game would be so much better without them, however they are here, so I have to deal them the best I can. As BB player asked "CA in brawls...why?" "Because I like the challenge!"

    How is your current level of satisfaction? [Poll]

    Same here but luckily I don't have a clan to drag me back...I log in, look at my ships, sigh and log out. I've tried to make the new Commander skills and my play style mesh but it's been a soul destroying effort so I don't bother now. Fortunately all my Commanders are reset, so if this mess ever gets sorted I can jump back and start playing again but I'm not holding my breath...

    Update Survey

    Interestingly, while this survey is closed, my son got asked to complete a survey about the commander rework when he logged into the game a couple of days ago. He'd basically given up on WoWs - CV change killed it for him - but he was curious about Ranked and the Commander rework...now the game is really dead to him and he told them as such in this new (select?) survey.

    0.10.0 - Commander Skills Update

    I looked at the skills again today and tried different combinations but, IMHO, nothing was as good as was previously. It was a soul destroying exercise, so I reset all my skills and left them unallocated. For me the game has been going downhill for a while now and this was the straw that broke the camels back...the only consolation is that I have most of the ships I wanted and have achieved all the goals I set before Christmas. So unless things change radically, I'm done and it's game over for me.
  6. I used to enjoy ranked battles but then the seasons started to come around too quickly and the ranks soon became irrelevant because of this...so the the whole concept and format started to wear thin. The sprints were ok but soon turned into a soul destroying grind and then they started to come around again too quickly, so again, were pretty meaningless as far as ranking was concerned. So thanks but no thanks wargaming...no more ranked for me.

    ST 0.9.11 - 0.9.12, new ships. (DB 90)

    Introducing HMAS Vampire II seems lazy to me, when there was also Voyager and Vendetta to choose from as names. Also a NZ ship would be nice if you're going to add to the commonwealth ships...

    0.9.8 - Asymmetric Battles

    I quite like this format, top tier is not easy but IMHO it should be challenging, but with human teammates and good teamplay top tier is winnable. What I don't like is the use of bots to make up numbers - I'd much rather be short on numbers than have bots I can't coordinate with. Also, I think the different between tiers should be greater...4-9 just to make it really interesting!

    0.9.5 - Updated Combat Missions

    Don't like it either...not intuitive and far too cluttered for my liking, so much so that I'm no longer bothering to see what missions are available.

    Submarine Battles: Free Submarine Rentals

    I have absolutely no interest in playing subs (much like CV's) but I have enjoyed killing them...up to a point. It's a total sh*tstorm with multiple ships and classes trying to do the same, different or their own thing be it cap, kill or manoeuvre around a sub. For me I'd prefer a hunter/defender type match with CL and DD's protecting a convoy from a wolfpack of subs...much more fun and challenging IMHO.

    RESULTS - Anzac Day Approaches

    As a former member of the ADF I feel uncomfortable about ANZAC Day being "commemorated" by WG for essentially commercial purposes. Even as an Australian I find it irritating that the Australian "Slouch Hat" is shown without the NZ "Lemon Squeezer" alongside it. Having said that, I'm not going to hold it against anyone taking part. It's probably a pipe dream but it would be nice to see the Commonwealth line with some RNZN ships added eg HMNZS Royalist or changing HMS Leander to HMNZS Leander. It would also be nice to see the USS Houston added to complement HMAS Perth.
