I know that selling point of this game is bring WW2 warship back to life and let people ride into battle.

but due to very long period between major update, some player may start to feel that game lack of something new.

 

10 ship of each class, only 2 nation now are complete. this game have a long road ahead

some...(if not many) know immediately about spec of opponent ship (gun range, torp range, rof etc...)

of cause I'm not one of them.

 

I can't stop but wonder, "what If I can retrofit my ship as I see fit?"

 

a 'custom ship' where play can buildup their own warship by bring armament that already exist in game now, mix and match as they like.

sure, it must have limitation weapon that specific for ship class, just like MMORPG game that sword man can't equip magician rod.

 

with this, all player know about opponent is ship class, but never know what kind of armament it has.

 

well, i was just thinking

 

game already have un-build ship, why not custom ship?

And it called : Hack or Cheat if someone made a very OP ship like Cleveland but use Yamato's guns and RoF like Gearing :izmena: WG may nerf its dmg or RoF or armor , but can't nert the OP of it :hiding:

Balance issues aside, wouldn't people still just find the optimal load out per class? We would still be in the same situation we are in now expect maybe that 1/10 guy who either hasn't unlocked the other armaments or is using the lesser for reasons.

Not that I think it should be done - but it could be done - the trick would be to make specialist combinations so that instead of being optimum, a player must make choices to suit their play style:

 

DD class:

 

Guns limited to a certain Calibre, each gun/addon has a weight - DD hull can only have a maximum Tonnage, and the gun placements are restricted, if certain Guns are selected, then other options are restricted so you couldn't get a Gearing's OMGWTFHAX guns with their OMGWTFHAX RoF, and Japanese Torpedoes with high speeds and long range to make an Uber DD - then certain add ons would automatically up-tier the ship (so you couldn't have a DD with a single Gearing OMGWTFHAX gun and put it in a tier 4 match)

just forcefully put custom ship on specific tier. (7 or 8)

 

when build a ship player get to choose class, DD, CA or BB

 

then choose hull, each class have 2 hull A, B

  - A is a light weight hull, specialize on stealth and speed but very very fragile, can't equip heavy weapon

  - B is a heavy, specialize on armor but low concealment and lower speed. can equip heavy weapon

 

each hull have a 'slot' to equip armament (main gun, secondary gun, torpedoes, AA) each take up different slot depend on caliber

player can either choose to sacrifice their AA for 1 more main gun, or sacrifice main gun for more torpedoes tube

 

-----------------------

i.e.

assume I want to create DD,

I choose 'A' hull for highly stealth and speed, but I can't equip shimakaze 20km torp because it's considered as 'heavy weapon' for DD.

so I have to choose 'B' hull that have low concealment and low speed for 20km torp. (so, there's no OP like stealth but long range torp)

of cause, even low speed DD still faster than most CA or CL, it just slower than other DD.

to choose 'A' hull DD, I can only equip shot range torp, small and fewer gun.

Nope, more are coming. I haven't seen my Agano-class JP Cruiser! So, there is no such thing as complete. :P

sure, it must have limitation weapon that specific for ship class, just like MMORPG game that sword man can't equip magician rod.

 

Customization of armament is not possible, for now.

But hopefully I could change all the twin-mount 20mm AA on my Cruiser into triple-mount 20mm AA though......
