Stop this. It's getting annoying where someone with less than 100 battles can buy a Tier 8 ship of the class that has the strongest influence to a game.

 

It's absurd. This just goes to show how much WG actually hates their playerbase. You actually don't care about anyone who plays this game or what their experience is. This is why player count is dropping on all servers. You do nothing but harass your playerbase.

The best part? its a bad T8 CV. You have the IJN DD equivalent of a CV now! (bad ship, bad player).

Lol we had a player with a total of 128 games played who had bought the Zepplin, needless to say he was on our team and he did about as well as to be expected :fish_palm:

 

At T8 where you see T10 games often where so many players are very good and can punish the smallest of mistakes you allow Novices with no understanding of how to play to waltz right into high tier meta. All this tells the playerbase is that you don't care about our experience and you will happily ruin our games if you get another bunch of gullible fools to buy an overpriced ship.

 

This is a real suggestion in order to buy a T8 Premium make the player achieve basic KPI's in order to buy/play her this will let the high tier player base continue to have fun and not have their games ruined by incompetent players & 2 after reaching the basic KPI the player who has just bought the ship knows he won't be a complete Potato ruin his teams game and receive 10 reports from the Division that has tried to carry his fat ass and is salty as all hell (Usually my Division :Smile-angry:)

I think he just turned up in the GZ thread to complain about how bad the ship is.

Point being, the MM matches him up against a unicum in a Shokaku with two div mates.

Been there, seen that.

That last reason is why I got the HSF Graf Spee when I already had the normal version. :Smile_hiding:

Well, without even looking at the stats we know its historically bad and people want the ship more for the catch them all mentality.

The last reason is great logic lol.

P/s: When u change the HSF Graf Spee camo to the 2nd ver camo (Type 10), it turn to regular default camo the exist Graf Spee. Lol

I understand your point and all, but if I were to extrapolate I would think a skill based system would effectively be year long ranked. Going by the salt in ranked I have to question if this is really what we want.

I fully support new players buying T8 premiums on the terms that they give up... On the game within 10 games. This way WG gets shit ton of cash and we burn through players that can potentially ruin the game. Hopefully, with some time, all that will be left to support WG is us regular players, maybe then they would bother balancing stuff.

 

On another note, I met the GF/Wife of a WG employee a while back on a mobile game, we had a little chat and I was told that the older WG employees which focused on long term profits left or were replaced with newer employees which were more cash grab orientated

Nice Sarushima base! I would use mine but too bad there is no music still.:Smile-angry:

Anyway I have no issues with new players picking up Premium ships to play, there is nothing we can do about it sadly. Just treat them as another potato on the team.

Best way to avoid T8 noob CV

: Try T8 CV

 

Back to the topic

: That's what every people tells to WG.

Stop selling T8 premium to New players! But, sadly, no one listened.

Just my 2 cents on the new players buying T8 Premiums

 

I feel that it is a thing that has happened and is here to stay. We can't really change it, but it is actually good for the game. Put it this way, some random guy drops 60-70 dollars on the game, and screws up really badly in the game.

 

Now 2 things can happen.

 

1. Player quits, and WG gets cash and that good for them, and we don't have to deal with the bad player.

 

2. Player seeks to improve. Now this is kinda like me. If you look at my WOT career, you'll realize the steady increase of stats and general performance since I bought my Churchill lll. The player that bothers would go around reading guides and become better simply due to interest or to ensure they don't waste their money.

 

IMO, the newbies in T8 premiums thing is really overblown. Sure I have seen and raged over bad performance in critical moments, ruining the game, but these don't happen that much more often than players doing the same in tech tree ships.

 

Another benefit might be WG realizing that balance in important, and more so in premium ships. When newbies buy premium ships like the Graf Zepplin, they give WG cash and on their stats record, they probably see how many Graf Zepplins were bought, and when they realize that the average game played is really low, and that these players were frustrated into leaving the game, they might just realize that cash grabbing is not a good nor sustainable way of business.

 

I sincerely believe WG is not planning to shutdown the game. Given all the adverts I still see, works on newer content, and bad attempts (Credits for effort) on balancing, I believe that they are still working on the game. Throw in knowledge  that WG got a massive employee overhaul a while back leading to a change in business strategy (I have my sources) I think we can still hope that WG would wake up and stop doing dumb things. Like flipping the bird to your playerbase again and again and again, then not having the guts to admit the mistakes made.

This is a massive problem on NA server as well.

What makes you think that having 15% win rate in the Bogue and no CV's higher than t5 is an acceptable standard for purchasing a t8 premium CV so you can go and effectively lose a game for anyone on your team as soon as you hit "Battle".

CV's are disgustingly detrimental to this game as it is, people need to stop playing them full stop.

Asia server has the most CV's I have ever seen, and nobody can play them worth damn. It is infuriating and every day I run out of reports for potato Ryujo players who shoot down LESS PLANES THAN MY PERTH. Disgracefully bad CV play on this server.
