CV rework disaster, Puerto Rico fiasco, gold compensation removed from the Christmas crates, rigged crates to drop tier 5,6,7, CV 8 and 9 almost exclusively in tier order, broken promises after broken promise, lies lies lies, up coming subs with torps that's totally ignore torpedo belts, another release I have no belief in WG getting it right. And did I mention the lies.

 

I'm tired of it, I just don't care anymore, on my main I have pretty much all the ships upto and including the T9's. But I have spent my last penny on the game. Yashima now, 20 inch guns and another broken promise by WG. Yamato will always have biggest guns in the game, but no surprise here's something bigger, not a great issue in itself but it shows WG don't listen and don't learn from past disasters. HE meta, faster and faster games massive grinds the list is almost endless. I stopped playing WoT 18 months ago for exactly the same reasons. I'm English, ex forces and a big fan of the British warships but even with that background I just can't be bothered , nor excited in anyway about the new line, neither will I be attempting anymore grinds.

 

I won't stop playing the game I have a lot of time and money invested but will no longer spend on any WG titles and I also will only become an occasional visitor with a few hours here and there, World of warships is no longer my go to game, I got a few new games in the steam sale and what do you know there is life and better games out there than WoW.

 

My questions to YOU the community are, are you still WG and WoW fanboys/girls, do you still care or like me simply stopped caring what WG do with WoW anymore, And finally, do you think WG will ever listen to what the community actually wants.

The money I would have spent in WoT + WoWs now goes to buy other games or fund my other hobbies, but the money grabbing drunk russians have had the last of my pennies.

Do I Care ? I want to care, I mean I think that WoWs as a game is fantastic, but its all about micro currency, collecting stuff and luck, so basically... no I don't care anymore I just jump in play a couple of games when I fancy it, most of my gaming time is now spent in the other games I buy with my WoWs money :) 

Do I think WG care ? I don't think WG has ever cared about anything other than the money !

I was never WG fanboy I like this game (less and less recently). I've stopped caring last year and I doubt that WG will listen to what the community wants unless they can make big money by it.

I cared and was always vocal about changes that were bad (Santa's Convoy, Original GZ release, CV rework, Radar BBs, NTC, PR, RPF (initially it was only 2 points skill), etc, etc.). 

 

But, not anymore. It almost turned into a full-time job monitoring all the shenanigans and plain stupid ideas that WG comes up with. They can do whatever they want. So will I. In my mind, by their actions, they broke a trust that I have placed in them as a responsible game developer with longevity and quality of the game as their goal. 

 

I have almost all premiums that I ever wanted and spending close to no money. Previously, I would buy a ship as a token of appreciation to the developer's effort, but as I don't trust WG anymore, that will not happen. 

 

Trick me once, your bad. Trick me twice, entirely mine.

That's probably why you start to play this game.

 

 

And not because of this.

I never was a fan of WG per say.

A little.

Who cares.

 

I started this game because of Bismarck. (I'm a fan).

I discover some fun ships along the way.

 

Cv rework it's a disaster .

PR don't affect me a tiny bit

And so on.

 

Have fun as long as you can, after all, most probably it all end very soon

I care less and less. Mostly because I've done it all and can't really see myself doing this for much longer. Doing the same thing over and over again i different ships (that starting to look more and more the same) will get old eventually.

 

I still loiter around the co-op scene but for how long? Even I don't know the answer to that. Perhaps one day I'll just log out and can't find a reason to log back in again. It's that simple.

Devonshire (or any 3-funneled County class) is the only ship I care for that hasn't been implemented it. So yeah. When I have that ship, it's also over for me.

I quit WoT when the object 268 v4 was released. Mind you I have some 30 000 battles in that game so I don´t go away easily. I switched to warships because I felt the game was still good and sound and the development ideas they made were good. Now development year 2019 was a total fiasco in this game for me. This game is going down the WoT path and so am I. Too bad there is still very little competition in naval games. I have a lot of ships and time invested but not a lot of money.I think this game is going to the wrong direction and I am waiting for the last excuse to leave like I did with WoT.

 

Now I just keep playing.. for the fun?

Out of curiosity, why Devonshire, anything special about her or because of Devon? I checked the wiki but didn't find many heroic things about her, mostly she was an escort heavy cruiser and also evacuated the king of Norway and other officials. She had radar irl, too.

  •  are you still WG and WoW fanboys/girls

Never was, never will be. But I still play their games.

  • do you still care or like me simply stopped caring what WG do with WoW anymore

Kinda? I'll stop playing if it becomes too much of a chore or annoyance. So far I still keep coming back. I'm not really hyped for new ships anymore, I've got plenty. Balance and gameplay improvements are probably the most interesting thing to me. Events and new promoted stuff not so much.

  • do you think WG will ever listen to what the community actually wants.

It's like they have two ears; one ear kinda sorta listens to the community sometimes to a limited extent, the other ear listens to the greedy corporate decision makes. Sure, they need to make money as a business, but they would do so much better if they didn't destroy the community's trust with blatantly predatory practices.

The new HMS CA line seems kind of "Eh, I guess I'll try it... Doesn't look that unique on paper but it's not like I have anything better to do. (still not touching the Research Bureau, I want to KEEP play my ships and keep them too!)"

I think it was around USS Enterprise announcement, or shortly after. I had more or less been expecting this ship ever since the beta and I remember having promised to myself that I would buy her whatever her price. When she was announced, I didn't get hype. Not only wasn't I expecting any fun gameplay and interesting implementation from WG, but I noticed my only reaction was "oh no, they're gonna eff her up too".

Gears were set in motion and I realised that not only WoWs had stopped being fun, but I had at some point started to dread every release WG made. I only wondered what class or vessel they would use as a steptool next to make more money or appease the community with, instead of trying to be interesting and creative. The game was associating something that I loved - ships - with very negative emotions, like hate and disgust. It didn't take too long after that for me to leave the game altogether. It's been... now years I haven't opened it up and I don't intend to.

 

I don't see why "WG would listen" to anybody or anything. The fact is, commercially speaking, their strategy works. People play, people pay, sure, people get angry, but they keep paying nonetheless and they don't leave the game. It's a win-win situation for WG. Until it changes, they have no reason to ever adopt a different behavior or strategy.

Because it's the only 3-funnel county in the game. Dorsetshire would be more interesting though.

 Hasn't Enterprise been the best T8 carrier for a long time now? Or was she too good for you?

No, I didn't even look up her stats or gameplay, and it's not a question of being OP or useless. It's a question of WG pumping out generic, bland cashgrabs with only their names as redeeming factors, or on the other hand, vessels with absurd gimmicks that don't even come together to make any form of unique or interesting gameplay.

In the end, it has nothing to do with Enterprise herself. It's just, when she was announced, I could see clearly the gap between my past hype, and my present dread regarding WG laying its hands on anything I liked. In other words, Enterprise was just the trigger that made me understand that this game and company were toxic and that I was better without them.

 

And to this day, I have no regret.

I'm facing the prospect of not running premium when my old premium time runs out.  The WoT specific premium time is very lucrative, but I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for WoWS specific premium as well.

I came back in Oct, after a year of being away to see how things had changed. After seeing the on-going changes I'm still playing most days, but only enough to collect some of the daily rewards that allow me to gain some coal. between the RNG based drops and boxes, the level creep of each new ship and the future release of subs I'm not going to bother spending money on the game.

Never was a fan boy, I enjoyed WoT up until about 10k battles after which it just became stale with the same game mode over and over. I got into WoWS in closed beta and it seemed like a breath of fresh air, it was a different studio that seemed to be more community friendly than the WoT team, all of the ships were fun to play regardless of tier so it never felt like a race to tier 10, the premium ships were mostly balanced (as long as you ignored the gremlin) very quickly people realised that CV's were crap so no one really played them and that was fine, WG should have just removed them before release and it never would have been an issue. Unfortunately since release the game and studio have been on a downward spiral, every new line had to have some sort of gimmick that power crept the game, there became more and more OP premiums, they constantly changed the game so much (stealth fire nerfs, captain skills changes, HE spam meta) that you would constantly have to go through all of your ships and change all of the modules and captain skills which just became a chore when you had numerous ships. loot crates became more and more stingy while inexplicably getting more and more expensive, missions and directives added even more grind into the game after signal flags and camo's made the ship line grind too fast, Events have gotten more and more grindy and/or cash grabbing and it's gotten to the point where WG aren't even trying to hide the fact this game is purely here to milk the players for cash rather than to make an honest income by making a game people want to invest their time/money into.

 

So I'll carry on playing the game but no more money from me. I have no faith that they will ever make the right decisions with the game, especially when it comes to things like subs, I can already guess that subs are going to be released in a terrible/game breaking state and WG will then spend the next few years trying to get them to somehow be slightly less game breaking, essentially mirroring what has happened with CV's. I fully expect future events to be even more grindy/pay to win until the game either gets cancelled or left to wither and die because WG strangled it to death (remember this game doesn't have the huge russian playerbase to prop it up like WoT does)

 

Finally do I think WG will ever listen to the community? simple answer....no. Longer answer, they will always make a show of pretending they do (going 2 steps over the line to then take 1 step back so they can pretend they 'listened to community feedback') but even the pretense is starting to slip, with community teams basically telling players 'this is how it's going to be so suck it up buttercup' as we saw with the Puerto Rico disaster.

 

It's been depressing to watch what could have been something so wonderful get twisted into something so lazy and cash grabbing.

During 2017-2018 some friends of mine was like "come play warships with us" its fun and engaging. I'd pass.

Thinkin' I'd already played my part of video games (was an avid gamer years ago but now used my (spare)time elsewhere) but finally after trying out one night in lave 2018 I tagged along and made my account. And to various degrees I can concur to all the statements in this thread. For starters its a fun and entertaining game. You earn ships with new abilities, gain insights to tactits, discover the oddities of the various branches/countries and all in all its on the face value a fun game, but then:

 

- Its become somewhat of a stale game. The same game mode over and over. Sure there are ranked and ranked sprints game modes. And clan wars/brawls - but really. The same just more grindin'.

- The CV (yup just made it in prior to the CV disaster) mode to accommodate what can only be described like the "fortnite playerbase" took a major tactical element and threw it right out the window instead focusing on "aim or suck"-skill.

- Realizing that the WoWs DevOps apparently has gone down the road leading to CCCP domination bias (Kremlin, Stalingrad, etc.) paperships this time flushing what realism that seemed to exist with actual ships down the drain on the grounds of funneling OP fantasy CCCP** (and others) ships into the game.

- And finally the wholesale* of so called "admiral packs" (or whatever they are called) containing new premium boats, t10 commanders, flags, skins etc. so players who had put time into getting the mechanics right, whilst playing their commander to an useful level, with t7-t8-t9-tX boats eventually will run into newcomers to the game with little or zero game game sense ruining the game experience.

 

So to sum it up - do I care? Nope. I mainly sail with a handful of IRL friends but grinding is slowly coming to and end for me (when my christmas/winter premium runs out) For me at least i differ with quite a few in this thread as in; for me it not so much the ~100 bucks i spent over the last 18 months im annoyed over. Its more that the time put into understanding game mechanics, tactics, identifying what branches to play etc. is proving either worthless or of very little value due to the fact that WoWs are offering whales the opportunity to buyin to the game with massive OP paperships and playing like they are on a PUBG server. And thus screwing the game experience for a lot of (formerly?) dedicated players.

 

*) Look, I know WG has a business to run but it would seem fair that to purchase thees packs you should at least reach a certain account level (level15=200 battles if memory suits me well for instance) to make sure that players have a basic comprehension of the game. On the other hand imposing such a barrier may severely hamper the cash flow of the company. Sooo.....not really sure what to do here and since the community dont for obvious reasons have access to the hard data as to when players purchases boats/premium/signals/cammos it nothing more than an educated guessing game.

**) Either to accommodate the CIS player base and/or compensating for something else.....

 

My two cents.
