Over the past year it would seem that all WG want to do is add and add more ships, does anyone else think they need to slow down on ship release and get more and better maps added to the game??

Would not mind new maps either. Random mirrored map generation has been suggested, as a quick fix but nothing of the sort has happened either. A pity really. But on the other hand, there are some additional ships and lines I still would like to see ASAP also, so I guess they have to prioritize things for now so we can't have all at once, hopefully eventually tho.:cap_hmm:

I was under the impression that at least some of the older players had nothing left to grind anymore. Also there is tons of new contect being added (new campaigns, events, tweaks and additions like the arsenal and new accompanying new resources).

 

Frankly, I was kinda hoping they would add some of the 'missing' tech tree ships more faster :Smile_teethhappy:

 

I do agree that the addition of new maps is going really slowly...

Same thing for new operations, though there's arguably more progress here then in new maps.

If they dont copypaste a silver ship for doubloons and/or a new gimmick every 3-6 weeks they seem to get sent to gulag, or someone would think they did...

More new and better maps would be nice, but I do not mind the ships. Gives more options.

But I do not like when they are Gimick dependent (RN Cruiser, Pan Asia DD).

You misspelled the word 'ship' in title, should have used 'T' and you would have been correct with the current amount of it, and more to come next patch.

Never such a thing as too many ships! I'm still holding out for IJN light cruisers! Maybe some day post carrier rework we'll even get some escort/ light carriers!

Excellent post, Colonel! :Smile_honoring:  I agree 100%!

This is one of those times when I wish that I was able to give more than one "like" to a post.

Fully agree, but on the other side - after 3, 4 or 5 different lines of the same class it is hard to insert something "different" without gimmicks. 

 

And generally, new ships are needed, because

1) add variety to the game 2) keep grinders/collectors busy & interested 3) provide income for the company

They will always look different.

Look at the BB. Armored ships that make BOOM. Nothing else needed. The national design philosophies will supply enough differences.

To be fair, a friend of mine started playing this game a week ago and the first thing he said when going through the tech tree was "holy guacamole how can I ever remember the info of all the ships?". And I can't blame him. There are just so many out there...

Just focus on the ships in your tier spread.

As long as you do not jump tiers, you will be fine.

Modelling and designing ships is very likely not done by the same people, who design maps. Would I prefer more variety when it comes to battlefields? Hell,yes! But I don't see how this is related to the frequency of new lines/ships being introduced at all.

Well, one problem with the maps is that it is quite difficult to balance a map with a lots of islands and also make it different than what we have.

 

I am thinking of a low cost thing sometimes, what about if f.e. New Dawn or Big Race would be scaled up for high tiers , same map but just increase the size? Or Archipelago? You make it 100 % larger or so?

Well, have you seen the RN DDs? I'd not get my hopes up. And god knows what RU BBs will be like.

 

I don't mind new ships or maps. Though I'd prefer if some maps were less bad and maybe new Ops that are not T8 allied cruiser or T7 allied cruiser only.

Yeah, well, tweaking what we already have would be nice as well. (see existing ships that need a buff topic)

New ships equals more money.

New maps dont bring income

Rebalancing old lines doesnt bring income either.

So you know why they are hammering new ship(lines) / premiums all the time. Coz thats whats keeping a steady flow of income. Ofc they need that, since its F2P game.

But obviously lot of ppl are spending money, so why stop? Think its the same with those FreeXP ships. Those must be real cashcows.

Has he played WOT? The number of AFVs to remember there is dizzying...

I don't mind any map except that one where you have to go into one of the caps from the sides only, Okinawa and of course any epicentre map.  hate that mode.

I would love new maps, especially ones with islands near B, I love to park my CVs there. However, it looks like WG is more intent on powercreeping lines then adding more maps. :p

 I would like some maps with local weather, shallow islands, or with some interesting strategic objective, (kind of like ops)

Bring me some more ships, getting close to the magic 250 mark for a top collector
