    Tier gap

    Well then ill be careful with that door. This thread has helped me a lot ensuring that i will use that door. If not only the devs dont give a crap and ignore complaints, but even the players dont give a crap and make it a thing to burn anyone who has complaints, i dont think there is much hope for the game.

    Why repeat? i just answered that: "The problem is that this game has some horrendous game design flaws and i point them out. Has nothing to do with being a good or bad player." Yes i can easily get to T10. Also has absolutely nothing to do with me pointing out this design flaw that makes it much less fun to get there.

    Introducing frustration into the game is a very very bad bussiness model imo. I played other free to play games and it doesn't seem needed at all. Hearthstone is free to play, yet perfectly fine when you are playing free. I have 15k dust to build any deck i want, havent spent a penny besides the adventures in the past. (the change of their bussiness model to abandon those made me stop depositing though) No frustration. I played a chinese MMORPG for a few years (perfect world) that was extremely pay to win. Fortunately, merchanting bought me everything i could ever desire and more. No frustration. I brought a clan from position 15 to position 3 and myself from 5000 to 50 when starting 2 weeks after server start in tiberium alliances. A game that seems extremely pay to win on first sight, but if you learn the game well, you find out that the developers were smart enough to make monetary investments seem really good, but actually be much less useful than the spender thinks. No frustration. And even better: You can make games that are not P2W like Path of Exile. (which i didnt play that much because imo its not nearly as great as its made out to be)

    Including other modifiers seems sensible to me right ? You get lots of flags for free, so ofc you use them.

    The problem is that this game has some horrendous game design flaws and i point them out. Has nothing to do with being a good or bad player.

    Whats wrong with my mentality ? Is it so bad to point out terrible game design aspects ? My mentality to beat games is pretty good i can assure you. My mentality is that i will be top 5% in any game i play, and i have not yet let myself down. (In this game, that would be measured by winrate after 10.000 games minimum and i will be dissapointed with myself if that was under 60% for normal ships or under 70% for CVs)

    Personally i have the least problem with DDs. They rely more on stealth anyways, and when you are detected in the wrong place, a T5 cruisers will annihilate you almost as fast as a T7. I have much more problems with the cruisers and BB's who get screwed with their armor vs caliber both for penetration and overmatching as well as their range. It grossly sucks when everyone shoots 3km further than you do. (another, but minor issue i have with the whole thing is how you reach a new ship and its actually a downgrade until you upgraded it, fortunately that goes fast enough that it is a minor issue, but again, there is no real good reason for it to be like this. Other than the stupid reason of wanting to have 10 tiers in the game, but recognizing that causes a MM problem and instead of doing with fewer tiers, trying to make the differences smaller yet still give the player something to upgrade)

    Tier gap

    How ? In my eyes you emberrass yourself by showing a sample size of 1 to prove that something is no issue. Of course a lower tier can be successful against a higher tier sometimes. As i said, that doesn't mean anything for the big picture. Yes I do understand T5 is the worst, and i do understand it comes from the Protection up to T4. I also know about the other tiers position and i know that T10 is of course the place where you cant get uptiered and thus that is the P2W tier where according to some, supposedly you cant play without premium. (although i feel quite confident that if i keep playing, i will get to the level where i can consistently play T10 without premium, just like i can play for free in other pay to win games) It just doesn't need to be like this. Why on earth would you design a game to have unfair matchups ?

    Does that mean anything ? Do you think i have not had a single good game when being uptiered ?

    Tier gap

    BTW, i do understand one argument against it that none of you actually managed to come up with: The player base is probably too small to have 10 tiers of ships and make seperate battles for each tier. The solution: reduce the number of available tiers. (just upgrade or downgrade existing ships to fit into the new tiers)

    Tier gap

    I read all of them. Are you going to say it doesnt matter if you have more or less armor and a bigger or smaller caliber ? I hope you do understand that with the armor being adjusted for angle, it is not just being able to pen a ship or not. It means being able to pen it at better or worse angles. Including the angles from the projectiles coming down. In total, it simply means that the hitbox that you actually can penetrate grows or shrinks. (and thus with dispersion, more or fewer shots actually hitting that area). Dont act as if it doesnt matter. PS: a player base that acts like this also doesn't really help the game grow. Either you can be real, admit the issue instead of deny it and try to improve the game, or you can chase new players away and let everything be as it is. Its no surprise of course in a game where 95% of the players are constantly blaming their team mates for being bad (ye thats a problem eh, that means bad players must be blaming other players of being bad) that the best response they can come up with is "you have to get good"

    I dont understand how you all act like im insane. How is it normal to have a game that matches its players unfairly like that ? How would it matter that it has been worse in the past ? yes i have played many many free to play games. I have a very strong principle of not depositing when they are P2W and depositing decently (like 50$ which is a normal price for a game) for those that are not P2W. I have reached the top in many of them, even those that are P2W and i didnt pay a dime. In this case its not even that its pay to win. I don't really view this game as too much P2W, which is why i did deposit a bit already and would be ready to deposit more in the future. (although i do think that the prices are ridiculous and you should get much more for 50$ than a few months premium) And its nonsense to blame this on learning to play. I know how to aim and angle. How can you deny the difference in armor and projectile caliber ? Maybe you are the one who need to learn the game ? I dont mind people disagreeing, but i do mind nonsense bogus arguments.

    Tier gap

    No, i got demotivated because i am playing T5 ships against T7 ships which means that: My BB gets citideled by enemy BBs easilly. My BB cant citadel enemy BBs My BB is less likely to citadel enemy cruisers My cruisers gets citadelled by enemy cruisers easilly. My cruiser cant citadel anyone. Not to mention the range thingy

    Tier gap

    Didnt get to T8 and T9. Just reached T5 and got hugely demotivated by this nonsense. And yes i get F2P. I play other games that are free to play without problems.

    Tier gap

    Dear WG, Please send out some message when you reduced the Tier gap in battles to maximum 1 tier difference or preferable, all ships the same tier. All come back to play again (and deposit more) when that happened.
