Pre-setups for ships

The idea is:

 

- Have a set of "pre-setups" for ships, like you simply choose "A", "B" or "C" or how many you want.

- When clicked the ship will be setup with a pre-selected captain and build you've build for the setup.

- Another selected and you have a different build and/or captain?

 

Reason:

 

- Save us time in messing about with ships in the harbour if we want to change our setups before battles.

 

How to:

 

- I don't know? Allow us to have several ships of one type, or simply have one ship and "one button" switch the build.

- Allow us to name the ships so we know what to choose.

 

Additional option:

 

- Allow us to use the countdown-timer when entering a battle to reselect a certain build.

 

- Lots of DD's, we can go secondary heavy.

- Lots of carriers, AA heavy.

- Lots of BB's, torpedoheavy...

 

Who would gain the most:

 

- Probably cruisers and battleships?

 

Who would gain the least:

 

- CV's and DD's, they're kind of always set in an optimal setup with what they got?

 

Pros:

 

- Ever had the start of battles where you wish your build was just wrong.... and feel that you should've gone out and enjoy the sun instead of sitting in front of a computer.... that would be solved.

- Elitists will love this, cause now the opposition will be harder and require more to win against.

 

Cons:

 

- Guess WG won't make as much on the constant re-speccing people are doing.

- No more hoping someone set up a ship not able to completely counter you.

- Wannabe elitists will probably complain, cause it's elitist to use and try to win with what you've been dealt.

 

Ever gonna happen:

 

- Probably not, but it would be nice.

 

Has it been suggested before:

 

- Most likely, but my search-button is broken.

We reall really dont need to make BBs even more powerful, id say no to changing setups at the start of the game.

Ummm, I'm not sure WoWS would commit resources to this idea, Skurfa.

I mean, right now, you pick a ship (however set up), hit BATTLE & take your chances like everyone else has done, like, ever since this game has been around.

I understand why you suggest this but I reckon half setting up a ship is to cover what you expect to happen. You have to manage all situations and being able to scrap, for instance, all your AA defence when you see no carrier is unfair on the other classes. Ships should on the whole be balanced so they can take on all comers or be very specialist in the first place like DDs that can only torp BBs or CVs.

I don't mind different setups for ships, even if that means I need to buy the same ship again, retrain another captain for it etc etc.

I'd love that, my solo builds are generally not optimal for certain divisions, and I hate switching every CW season. So that part I like.

 

Switching setup whilst in line: big no. You make a choice before you go in, not when you see the lineup (and tbh: you can always leave queue again and go for different setup ).

I wonder why bad players would profit more from this than good players? :cap_hmm:

 

Cruisers would get the biggest advantage out of this, because they could pick Hydro or DefAA. Running DefAA by default would be obsolete, since i just could pick it once a CV is in the game. This is also horribly unfair against CVs/DDs, as it would mean, every Cruiser could pick DefAA/Hydro depending on the situation. No CV? run Hydro always. Get a CV? Pick DefAA.

In the end, you could just give Cruisers both consumables at the same time and be done with it... (US CLs have it anyway)

 

And then you have the occasional Secondary BB which could profit tremendously from that, like Bismarck/Massachusetts. If they are toptier, run Secondary build. If not, go for tank build.

In the end, better players would gain an even bigger advantage, since they are the ones with enough Captains/Elite Commander XP to run several hightier Captains for both  builds.

Very unlikely unless you would pay doubloons for every swap. And even then, why you would be in such a hurry, why you wouldn't enjoy glorious interface, made to give you bit of time in this hurried world?

The game in Min-Max-dull already from a ship/captain spec perspective, and BB's have had everything else nerfed to lifelessness too, there's no point letting them eat the mountain of cake they've grabbed already.

“Elitist this” “Elitist that” 

 

Frankly the fact you have already started going off on one against players who have gotten good at the game says more about you and your “idea” than any input anyone could ever put in...
