My premium game time expires today and i'm wondering if i should buy more or not. Because now i am paying for a game that i enjoy, and i'm not so sure if i will when the CV rework is live.

So the question is, will we get some compensation for this? Considering that we'll be more or less Guinea pigs for the next month or so...

wait untill the rework comes out then you can decide whether to leave or not.

 

at least then you can get a grasp as to whether you like the meta shift or not.

If you are CV main - leave this game

If you are not CV main - nothing drastically will change for you

Yhea ......   about that .......

 

I have a feeling we will see a 'slight' increase in planes and CV players when the patch hits.

As in : maximum numbers every game.

 

Lets just say that my Arkansas beta is not going to see much play after the patch hits. (the Arkansas beta is a tier 4 battleship with no AA whatsoever)

yes, as with every new line we will see "rush" for 1 month, but after that CV population will be as it is right now. Why?

 

it still will be hard for average WOWs player, it will give supbair dmg and influence in game

I can wait untill after the rework, no problem, but i'm sure there are people who bought 6 months or even a year of premium before the CV rework going live was announced.

I won 30 days premium in a SC both in november and december. Ending in a few weeks.

 

Perfect timing. At least sometimes WG does smt right.

Why do you think WG was selling a year premium for much less. 

 

Nothing to do with the CV rework at all and keeping players in the game to wither the CV S***storm.

 

That shows worried uncertainly with a slight lack of confidence in the system rework.  Read between the lines.

Ended up with 42 days premium for doing nothing but opening free creates, free missions and clans matches. 

 

Cant complain about that.

If it hadn't been for the CV rework, I probably would have bought a year of premium time half off.

 

As it is... the chance that the CV rework is going to kill off this game for me is so high that I just don't think it's worth it. Too many of the ships I genuinely enjoy playing seem like they're just going to get :etc_swear:ed by the new CVs.

Same here. I will try it, and probably just game as usual if I like it or if it is a 'minor inconvenience'....

But if it is the $h!tstorm that it seems to be / a lot of people say it will be, might take a time off.

Apart from some that I won, I'm not touching the WOWS premium time with a ten-foot barge-pole (although it's a bit moot, as I had plenty of premium time when the 'matched WOWS premium' thing happened) - with standard premium, one can at least jump back into WOT if the initial phases (or all phases) of the CV rework suck the proverbial moose balls.

 

Spent a happy half an hour fettling the cammo on a bunch of premium tanks last night, in readiness...

How wrong can one person be?

 

CVs will have far more power than they do now, and surface ships AA is effectively non-existant.

 

People like this one are the true supporters of this rework - "I'm clueless as to what changes and how it changes, but just change it! I clueless and blindly trust you!". Time for you to wake up :fish_palm:

Honestly with he reworked AA it's not like that matters. Noone will have AA. Not if you can drop (multiple times mind you) a Wooster through his DefAA while there are multiple ships of his team around him. Just ask El2aZeR for an example

A more interesting question is:

will WG allow us to have our premium time back for this period of "testing" on live server, it is a major change to the game and they themselves say it will totally bugger up the balance etc for potentially months to come.

Im thinking something similar to when the servers go down and they credit us with an extra day to make up for the loss

 

its not an unreasonable ask in my opinion, or the other option is to do the sensible thing and just remove the bloody things from the game totally, its not like they are required for a good game or for the game to work.

I guess if the CV rework is really bad for DDs (or others) then there is always scenarios (sometimes), ranked or clan wars left.

 

Some of the clips I've seen (the USA rocket armed planes taking out DDs left, right and centre) it does not look good for a DD player.  Mind you even now a CV player can make the game very bad for a DD by simply spotting them until the DD is taken out by team mates.

@El2aZeR can you post the vid of killing Wooster through DefAA and such? I've found another one who believes that this will nerf CVs

i played it in test phase (got lucky with pick), i played it in test server and i know what CV can do and can not....it is massive nerf to existing CV and DMG potential of hugely hampered. hitting stationary bots shows nothing of CV gameplay

You do realize bots move around much more than players in the current bow/island camping meta ever will?

Aka bots actually present a much more challenging target than your average player.

 

As for your inability to make reworked CVs perform, congrats! You have just proven that the skill gap is worse than with current CVs.

Yes, we will see low damage from potatoes who manage to be mindbogglingly bad at this. And then everyone else will just dominate every Air vs Surface engagement

 

You being a potato who can't make these CVs work speaks more about your absolute lack of skill / basic game understanding rather than anything else...
