Can't say that I'm overly impressed, just some re-skinned T10 ships moved down to T7, rewards are pretty meh too.

 

Also, this new skin for the forum, yuck!.

 

Finally, April 1st is Sunday, why release it today?

 

What does everyone else think?

How do those even work ? I switched to space port, switched to space battles but it seems i have no space ships to play games with .. 

 

Also disabled all port filters if anyone wants to point that out ..

You need to win one game in co-op/random to get the ships, BB for the BB etc.

It's fun because it's different, but I can see it becoming annoying after a short while.

 

Aiming is generally off (aiming too low) for everyone as you also see the underwater part of the ship and it takes some getting used to, torps can be hard to spot and tell where they are going, islands are so dark they just blend with the background so unless you are steering your ship by the minimap you're bound to run into them even if you are looking in their direction....

 

Not even speaking of the difficulty to visually recognize range (everything seems closer than it is) or enemy speed (literally no reference points behind them, if you are locked on them - it's just a ship on a black background)

 

Oh, yeah, the sound. SO LOUD. Like why can't it be normal loudness god damnit. And everything has a new special sound effect so you have literally no idea which beep means what.

 

 

So... Fun for a short while, probably for the first few days. Well, at least in a division. But yeah, probably will quickly get annoying

The smaller teams are quite nice.

Too bad, there's still too many BaBBies in those battles.

 

But at least one get's in a battle instantly in a DD and with very low queue time in a cruiser.

Visually it's a EDIT fiesta, it's hard to spot torps, aiming is bad. The sound is all over the place.

And don't start me on giving people T10 ships.

What are rewards for Space Battles?


Maybe because this event have nothing to do with April Fools. We already had this type of event in the past.

It's a bit of fun, I'm grateful for the opportunity to grind up elite commander xp as I don't have any 19-point captains of my own and I'm enjoying playing the tier 10 ships of a few lines I'm currently part-way through grinding. Overall it gets a thumbs-up from me. :Smile_great:

The map and effects just seem to disorient players; the game play is even worse than "usual weekend standard" - if such a thing was possible...

I like it...the sound effects are pretty bad, but the rest is nice... I especially like the fact that people don't know that green shells are AP....oh those glorious citadels.

Mostly it's just the elite captain XP from the 19 pt captains, for every 2 games you win you also get 3 x space camoflage (usual +100% XP).

My guess is that they're linking this to their April Fools content, a bit like they did with halloween last year, bring back an old special mode and use that to lead in to something new.

I thought it was just me but it seems that other people are having trouble aiming in the space battles mode as well

Only problem I have personally is that they haven't gone for full sized teams.

I like space battles but unfortunately, bad players come and ruin this totally. Impossible to get any WR at all.

Some of you guys are very serious.

 

I enjoyed playing a few games of it. Groovy visuals.

 

The pew-pew secondaries crack me up. :Smile_teethhappy:

That "Space" looks very familiar to me ;-)

Weird that, since the chance of a draw is practically nil, one team wins so I don't understand your comment.

 

I've played 5 won 3. True there's a fair bit of potatoing, but since the cruisers and DD's are spacey versions of ships I already have it's fairly familiar and decent fun, at least to me.
