Will you Reset in The Research Bureau

Design bureau?  

306 members have voted

  1. 1. Will you be resetting tech branches with the design bureau?

  2. 2. What rewards are you after?

  3. 3. Do you think the design bureau is a good idea? (keeping in mind it does not affect ship statistics)

I couldn't vote as I'm unsure which reward I would prefer to get.

 

But anyway, I'm not sure if I'm gonna reset. It's really time-consuming.

@CaptStevSmith There you go, I've added your poll and to reply to the question. Yes, I will probably be resetting multiple branches to get my hands on premiums and freeXP.

FXP? Is this gonna be one of the rewards for a reset?

You can trade in these resource tokens to free xp, flags and these new ships in the armory as I understand it.

The only (recent) line I've been through that i enjoyed all tiers was the Brit DDs. I've got  pretty good captains in everything tier 5 and above - so for me - will be quite enjoyable.  Not sure about any other lines, maybe the JPN gunboats. USN DDs was pretty painful first time out, but i'm a better player these day - so might give that a go.  Pretty sure I'll free XP the stock hulls/modules.

Poll answer: hell no. I don't have the time to regrind all those lines necessary for a decent reward. Even if the grinds are much faster now than when I did them the first time.

Besides, I don't feel like giving up on my high tiers ships during that time

But they can change it a bit based on forums and people reaction.

Hahahahaha :Smile_teethhappy::Smile_teethhappy:

You must be new around here :p

When has WG ever listened to proper forum feedback regarding new or 'improved' mechanics or features? It always takes a proper riot for them to change something.

i dont really get why people are whining now. they stopped NTC giving in game buffs and now its just a way to get ships and other things. if you can free xp them or want to grind them then you can and if not then you cant. simple as that whats the problem?

They did with the 1st version of NTC. It was a hell of a rage.

Will I reset? Probably, yes.

Which reward are you going for? Not really going for anything specific, but if I'd go for it, I'd prolly snag Ohio first.

Reasearch Center, good idea? I think so, yes.

 

I can't see any negative consequences to this addition to the game:

-It's completely 100% optional.

-other people won't notice anything nor get influenced by you resetting your lines.

-You can choose the line you want to reset and there is no downside to picking the same line over and over.

-Seems like implementation doesn't take that much time nor take any time away from things that interests the non RC-crowd. 

-the rewards might be OP, but that's just WG putting an unbalanced reward at the end of the line. It has nothing to do with the technical part of the RC.

 

So in the RC you got an optional, nonintrucive, additional way of playing the game, which nobody will notice in their daily experience and that those that got everything and want to make use of can use to spice things up a bit. The only thing that might understandably upset people is the OP rewards. But that is an issue caused by WG powercreeping the game, not the RC functioning incorrectly. And I hate OP stuff. I was interested in the Colbert until I saw what it could do on the testservers and now I couldn't  care less about the ship. Also heard Ohio was even worse :/ I'd rather sail my Roma and challenge the T10s that come with her MM :) Still, I like that I can have the fun of redoing the lines and get something for it in the process.

I have been reading, and watching community contributes videos, on NTC and The Research Bureau, and it all seems to be over complected.  

 

I am starting to think it may be better to reset ever thing ( sell it all ) and concentrate on 1 line of ships, which will result in me doing the following:-

 

1/ Not spend as much money on World of Warships.

 

2/ Not play world of Warships as much and go back to another game.

 

I will wait for implementation before I make My final decision.

If if does not affect the rest of us simple mortals, then I suppose is bearable. But I ain't regrinding nothing.

Last I read it would be 3 month period so it pretty much rules it out for me.  I can't play enough.  I am not sure I could grind out 1 line in time and I don't want to be restricted to 1 line in order to attempt it.

So you do not mind My ship having a Level 2 bonus making it around 20% better than yours via the Paragon System ( NTC ) ?

Since I cant vote on this subject my answer is no.. I will not regrind 4 lines just to get a single premium at T-X.. That's roughly in the ball park as 4.000.000 XP.. However IF the reward was getting premium status on the ships you regrind with no other bonus other than the premium status. Just so you could put whatever commander on it, then I would regrind all lines one at the time...

That's what I mean. It always takes a proper riot with torches and pitchforks to get anything to change.

They never change something based on genuine feedback.

Reset everything? That is an interesting prospect. Re-grind the lines you liked and never touch the ones you no longer would be playing anyway.

That's an interesting outlook. Never looked at it that way.

 

I mean, I only have 9 TX's and would probably regrind all but one .... why not. I mean, I have enough premiums anyway to play mostly those ...

I find this an interesting proposition as well. I have lot's of fun premiums, even high tier ones. Aside from my Hindenburg currently, I can very well live without most high tiers, and resetting everything is basically like setting up a new account and starting fresh, except not because 19 pt captains and shitload of XP, Free XP and credits lol. Too bad the move all XP to the starting ship. Because I am not planning on exchanging anything for cash. It'll be a complete P4free experience this time :P

Isn't there a limit on the number of lines you can reset, i think it was 6 max per season or something?

If I do I doubt I will need all the lines, I like the idea of specialising in 1 line.

 

I rarely use any thing IJN excluding Kitakaze, so depending on what the implementation, is I might just sell it all. excluding the line I want to keep which is American Battle Boats, I have a Yamato with Yamamoto Isoroku 19 pt Captain, but its not my "go to T10" for my play style, I find Yamato not a viable option, but that,s another thread.

 

Basically If I dont use it, I dont need it. I might as well have the " Geld " for it and play what I enjoy playing American Battle Boats.

 

I will not regrind anything American, how ever Paragon might change things depending on what it comes out as.

The more I watch the presentations and read, and think I understand this, the more I think this could be the best opportunity for individual player economy, and the worst thing ever for WG quarter year revenue stream.

 

The more worrying thing for players and player volumes is NTC, no ones going to accept some ones boat being more up powered than theirs, and broader line OP Boats could be massively In Balanced Over Power with it, I think a significant number of players when it happens to them with simple say " F**K It and stop playing.

No, I will not be resetting. For two reasons:

1) I am not interested in all these high-tier reward ships,

2) There is not a single line that I would want to go through the pain of grinding again -even with the help of my Free XP War Chest.

 

Heck, thanks to WG's method of releasing new lines I only started some grinds at tier 6, 7 or 8! And they were bad enough.
