Was anyone else expecting to have fun in Wowships today, I certainly was.

If WG think that trolling their player base is amusing to the players they are wrong. I was planning on buying premium for the first time in 2 months, and actually playing quite a few games this weekend but now i'm off to WarThunder , because at least they gave us something a bit different .

Shame on you WG yet again

Just don't interact with the sub! How difficult is that to comprehend? 

 

Buy your premium time. 

 

Have fun.

Some people didnt really understand what the OP says.

 

Its not about the stupid bug WG managed to put in with the sub prank.

Its about the lack of playable april fools content.

Compare this to last years bathtub fun.

The difference is quiet much to say the least.

I have't played the April Fools event yet for Warships. War Thunder though is absolutely amazing this year, bashing around in a Leo MBT with an attack gunship in reserve is great. Finally all those hours of flying in DCS with the Ka-50 are paying off lol. So much fun doing pop up attacks with the TOW missies.

 

Anyone else been having weird problems with the Warships patcher btw? I was barely getting 100kpbs for most of the day while everything else was downloading at my usual 7-800kpbs

Surely this isn't it, a skin of a submarine introduced 2 days before April 1 isn't their special content for one of the biggest marketing opportunities of the year.

 

My guess is that the serious problems they had with the patch have delayed release of something, hopefully we'll see it in a couple of hours.

I would have thought if they were having a problem implementing an "April Fools Event" we would have had some sort of an announcement from a member of WG staff.

That post says nothing about a problem with implementing an Event, its just about a bug when people tried to play the sub pre April 1st, also its a day old and therefore not relevant

Oh Hans, you silly billy, have you not seen that the Czech navy is coming.........

 

I almost fell asleep reading the announcement, they really don't get humour at all do they.

 

TB.

The sub IS the April Fool event, silly billy.

Nope, I must admit, WG is getting worse at this. I haven't found any of this remotely funny. In fact all it has done is irritate me so perhaps I've outgrown their diminishing sense of humour or they've dropped their target demographic to cater for 6 year olds. Either way it's mouthbreather stuff. In fact, I find the intro of RPF and the nerf to stealth fire even more funny, as I mentioned elsewhere. Ironically, WG nerfs stealth fire and then puts DD's on special in the premium store? That is the real joke here.

I feel kinda sad for Wargaming.

If they had put a lot of effort into April Fools content, players would've complained that they shouldn't have wasted so much time on it and that they should've been busy fixing the game/meta instead.

Now that they didn't put a lot of effort into it, players complain that they should've done more.

Pity the devil all you like. In the end, he is still the devil. I don't feel sorry for them at all, this is their job. People need to stop fanning the flames of fanboyism toward WG and start acting like customers. The principle idea here is not friendship, it's business. Friendship with WG is a bonus following mutual respect, us for them, and them toward their playerbase. Other than this, their sense of humour is perhaps stereotypical. With what I won't say.

I feel sorry that he feels the need to leave for such a mundane reason to play a game which is blatantly less fun

My guess is they are waiting for everybody to moan and complain then they will go 'April Fool's' and release the actual event.

It's not like that they have written something about it in their patch notes. And who wants a free port slot? Nope, if there is something this profound like a useless sub all the players need a memo (announced by a telephone call) and a written apology before it appears in port. The apology has to be hand written and signed by all the moms of the devs.

 

Only this way it is acceptable to pull something like this. Period.

being so easily pleased must be fairly underwhelming

Well, to be honest, if you are pleased that easily, life is overwhelmingly awesome since even small things can make you happy.

My guess is that the bugs they've had with the patch have stopped them from releasing the planned content, I assume that they are working flat out trying to fix it but if they can't find a solution soon they may decided not to release at all and save the content for a later event.
