Would WG please allow Commanders and Deputy Commanders of a clan to distribute their personal credits to other up and coming members of their clan for free (no dubloons or free xp used to do this). Some players dont have the money to buy premium account status. Making lower tier players wait and grind to get credits has a negative effect on them and in some cases they lose their enthusiasm for the game. Please consider this for the future  Cheers

been said before, and WG have said no, as it opens up all sorts of problems with underhand deals - for example commanders paying better player to join for a clan battle season etc...

Introducing a whole bunch of problems to solve the small issue of player retention in clans. Not a fan.

 

If players leave because they can't deal with the grind, then WG needs to either improve the grind or we accept that some people aren't okay with the progression in games like these. It's definitely not for everyone.

To be honest WoWs is actually very gentle on the grind compared to many other games with similar progression structure.

 

I'm not opposed to the general idea of helping newbies with credits, but I would need the solution to be less prone to abuse before I'm fine with it.

Maybe clan members can tick a box that makes 5-10% of their credit income from battles end up in a clan vault to then be distributed by the commander/deputies. Something along those lines.

Then they weren't meant to play any WG title in the first place.

There are plenty of ways this could be exploited by the unscrupulous, the obvious one being making a new member pay a silver price to join by making them a deputy commander then demoting them.

While I'd love to be able to give some of the silver I have to some of my fellow clan members I can completely understand why they're not likely to ever make a way to do it.

Do you know that WG is actually a company trying to make money by selling premium time etc?

Nice idea but no.

 

Besides the obvious problems already mentioned (WG wants to make money, People will misbehave and underhanded stuff will happen), Low Teir grind is important. That's how you learn to play the game, how you get aiming, angling and map awareness into your muscle memory.

 

Also it takes what? A month or two of casual gaming to fail your way to T6 on any single line (or at least T5 on several). Once you're at least mediocre in terms of experience you can still make money on a battle T6 and lower. T7 can be difficult to make money on. I find T8 and above really hard to make a profit at without a premium account, but I still manage it every once in a while.

 

(Those games are really good games, ones where I don't potato and my team actually manages to play together with some kind of coordination and minimal screaming in chat. Making a profit at T8 is a good indicator that you're doing something right, the trick is doing more often.)

 

If what you're asking for is to let Low Tier Clan members to be able to join the clan in battle, maybe you'd be better off asking for some kind of T5 version of Clan Battles.

 

Personally, I'd love to see a T3 Clan Battle, just because the Vampire is so much fun to play.

Oooooor instead of the requested feature:
-Clan commanders or however they are called can donate 1 ship per 6 weeks to a player.
-Said player can receive nothing else from this clan or any other clan if he decides to leave and join somewhere else for these 6 weeks.
-It should also be capped to 2 to 4 ships donated per account.

This solves pretty much everything mentioned before regarding under the table deals etc.

But as many before me i disagree.

I believe that grinding low tiers is a vital part of the learning experience and if you also sealclub at low tiers to grind money because you play without premium account that will make you a better player.
Or a player in another game if you cant handle it :Smile-_tongue:

Better performance = more xp = more money.

And besides, it is of course, still possible to gift premium ships to other players via the shop, or even premium account. You can gift, you "just" need money to do so.

Not that it ever going to happen in the [MPT], mind you. "No work, no bread." :Smile_trollface:

None of this would help WG who want players to struggle with the grind. Reason being the grind is a lot easier if you have premium time and ships.

Related to that, there should be a "credit-sink" in this game. I'm piling up such vast amounts of credits, and there is nothing to spend them on.

Agree something has to be done with all these credits Ive got. If you could gift some to your clan members it would be good

They did ships that cost free xp. They could have the same with credits, like a tier 9 premium that costs e.g. 750 million credits

Not that I agree with the OP's suggestion, but what kind of twisted philosophy is this?
Once WG, forever WG? :etc_swear:

I suppose this is sarcasm, since there is a gift option.

One can help 'lesser' playing by divving up with them! :Smile_great:

 

The fact that you don't mind getting your stats a bit lowered in order to teach a newling shows that you really care. Credits can be bought with €, just give them € if you want them to have more credits. Or donate some other stuff, there's ample opportunities that way.

 

I do agree that it would be a nice feature as it can really help newer player boost (like it does in online RPGs), but in this particular game there's a wide consensus that it has negative side-effects which may be damaging to the game.

Tru they can have a few ships that are cheap XP wise in the Tech tree, oddities but very expensive creditwise. I like the idea. I have 300M + and I am poor compared to some players.
