i would like to suggest repair ship akashi. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_repair_ship_Akashi

ability: at the half price of instant repair akashi will repair a ship at certain amount of time depending on the ship's tier are selected to be repair.

 

i find the cost of repair of higher tier ship starting from tier 8 are quite a pain in the pocket. sometimes i find myself need to play win tier 6 and 7 battles just to get enough money to repair my baltimore and flecher ship and  it slows down my grinding and earning credits to buy new hier tier ship a lot. i think this will really help lessen the burden on some of the captains. 

 

plus i like to see akashi servicing/repairing a damage ship at my harbor, its kinda cool i think.

This would work for RPG game, but not for WoWS.

Logically, it takes alot of time to repair a ship and what Akashi mostly does is temporal patching work, the ship still need to dry dock for full repair. Your ship also needs to stop and moored near shore (for weeks or even months) for the repair to conduct, I don't see how you can do that in the battle.

This isn't KanColle.

 

The entire point of having high repair costs for higher tier ships is to keep players playing at the profitable middle tiers, so MM isn't completely weighted over in high tier ships.

i know it isn't KC, i suggested it because of few things i have in mind

 

1. imo the dock page of looks bland/boring with just the ship just floating around doing nothing, i just want to add some little actions like a repair ship repairing one of your ship that was damage in combat, it didn't have to be akashi there can be USS vulcan and HMS artifex or other repair ship. i just want to see the docks view having some little action or have different looks.

 

2. lessen the burden to some players, not all player can always afford have premium account or win consecutive games to earn, instead of wasting some credits to repair high tier ships, why not use it to buy new ship from other nation or an upgrade for the ship. 

 

3. war is not won by warship alone, there are other ship that support the war-front like these repair ships. don't you want to collect one of these ship?

 

 

maybe they can add other auxiliary ships too and have a little mini game with them, like game where you play as supply ship that lost his escort and you have no choice but to dodge torpedo and shell that being fired at you and reach destination. (helps you practice your dodging skills)

If high tier ships too costly for the player, don't play for a while and grind other ships. If you are willing to move up, do your best in battle & accept the price. But on lost battle and full damage high tier ship... I only earn like 15k credit if I carry enough to avoid credit lost during that battle.

 

I agree on suggestion 1, but there will be port mod for that in the future.

But the 3rd is not convincing, it reminds me of suggestion thread of repair tank class back in WoT. If I understood correctly. :/

 

And that last part reminds me of rival game.

As a graphical addition to the port screen, that's acceptable.

 

As for point 2, the entire point is to push players into either performing extremely well, or keeping tier 4-6 vehicles around so as to keep the middle and lower tiers populated for new/slower-progressing players. Giving top tier players a way to bypass all that goes against the fundamental game design that's been around since World of Tanks. This is unlikely to change.

 

For point 3, this is a tactical combat game. Support ships don't really have a playable role here.

This is the WoT approach to high tiers and what they are finding is that there really is no incentive for the majority of players to even bother getting to the higher tiers. WG are currently looking at ways to improve this situation.

I think in WoWS the situation could be even worse as there really is not that much difference in game play as you progress up the tiers within the various lines, which means there will be even less incentive to get to the high tiers. So I am hoping that the devs ensure that if you play well at high tiers then you can expect to make a good profit.

It's the WG approach, not merely the WoT approach. Also, I'm really needing to see a [citation needed] for this part:

That's more a commentary on tier 10 gameplay than people not playing tier 10s. Taking a look at WoT, there are plenty of players who progress down the tiers with tier vii+ tanks in their garage, and games requiring tier viii to x games don't really take significantly longer to form than lower tier matches. Extrapolating it as "no incentive for the majority of players to even bother getting to the higher tiers"  isn't really correct.

Why do you want to play a support ship especially on a server as scrub as the SEA server?! I can barely even stand my non-carry tanks now, much less ships!

I accept it was more my opinion than anything concrete but when a dev states that they are looking into ways of increasing the incentives for top tier game play then there must be a problem, else why would the dev even bother making the statement in the first place?

 

From my own experience in WoT I have a number of Tier 10's which I spent a lot of effort grinding out. But once there I discovered I had no reason to play those tanks as they were not particularly suited to clam wars, nor to the autoloader meta game, nor did they make good credits, nor was the play in randoms particularly appealing. So as an average player what again is the reason to play Tier 10? And if there is no reason then there really is no reason to purchase a premium account, or, premium vehicles to train crews, or, to use gold for crew retraining, or, for me to give WG any money at all.
