So I'm just going to come out and say it: I only play Co-op. I know, I know, boo-hiss, “git gud” “what are you even doing here?” ect, ect... The thing is, I don't think I'm the only one either. And because of that, well, I would really like there to be more co-op content for us co-op enthusiasts. But before I get into that, why do I only play co-op? In short: I'm not the best player, but I still love the game. I have no real interest in becoming super skilled, dedicating a ton of time and effort into a video-game (real life is hard enough, thank you,) I also have almost zero competitive desires, and find the abusive nature of a lot of team play really quite distasteful. What I'm here for is to sit back, enjoy the game, have a good time, shoot some ships, and come away with it all with a smile on my face. That's it. Honestly, if there was a single-player campaign version based on World of Warhsips I would buy it in a second...but there is something kinda awesome about the whole co-op experience too. Much like games like left 4 dead, there can be some really thrilling moments when you and your co-op partner team up and become total badasses, blasting the enemy side by side, or setting them up with a perfect flanking maneuver. Just yesterday I was playing game as a BB, one of my destroyer team-mates came charging in on two enemy DD's and a cruiser. She torpedoed one DD to death, and then got under heavy fire from the other two. I'm chugging away, trying to catch up, and she calls for help. I line up the guns, setting up from where I'm about to come out from behind an island. She speeds past and hot on her tail is the cruiser. I blast it with a full broadside and sink the thing. The other runs, but gets hit by a torp by my friendly DD. She tells me thanks, it was a close one. I tell her no problem. (Side note: obviously I have no idea what gender the person was, but I think it's more fun to refer to ships as She.) The point is that it was a great match. It was memorable and cool and I loved participating in it. ...and of course I got barely any experience for the whole thing. See, that's my issue here. I really like the way that current co-op is set up, and I have no desire to see it turned into a different beast, but it would be nice if we co-op players could see better rewards available. I love the operation thing, and I participate in them whenever I can (having few high tier ships makes it difficult,) but I think it would be nice to have another option or two as well. Something for us co-op players to come back to so that we can actually grind our ships and get to the next tier. I would make something like 300xp on my tier 5 battleship every match, and I needed something like 45,000 to advance to the next rank. Now that I finally pulled off that grind (with the help of premium time and some premium ships,) I am looking at a 85k grind! I'm not trying to get anything for free here, but come on that's a bit much isn't it? All I'm saying is: there have to be people like me out there that love the co-op game. I think it would be nice if we had some more content to spend our hours and our money on. That's all really. Thanks for reading :-)
