Watching a vid now on what the game needs, and one suggested in the comments to have a night mode. And he also did say that this will prevent CVs to take part as during World War II CVs couldn't conduct nighttime operations. Now that's a thought. What else do you think the game needs, and would it be good to have night battles as well that can inhibit CVs from joining?

There was a night mode in the game. But it was an operation.

Scenario Name: Operation Cherry Blossom
Limitiation: T8 Allied Cruisers only (US, UK, FR, RU)
Current Statis: Hiatsu (2 years as of 2021)

WG's Notes: We are currently focusing on random battles.
Community Notes: WG says the same notes for 2 years now.

Why is it on hiatus?

WG removed 4 scenarios due to CV rework in 2019. (It used to be 5)
Ultimate Frontier
Hermes
Cherry Blossom
Dynamo
Raptor Rescue (Returned but have many bugs. WG did not put any effort to fix them.)

And in almost every EU stream, players has been asking for more scenarios or bring back the old scenarios.
But WG says is not their priority at the moment.
They are "focused" on Random Battles.

That was one of the few T8 missions that we can deploy on scenarios.

And they now focus on Random? What part? The MM? Sure, that's the same problem that's been plaguing WoT since CB and STILL they haven't been able to fix it. And I doubt that would be fixed anytime soon, much more HERE in WoWs.

They just want to pump out more premium ships/gimmicks and events to keep the cash flow constant.

Well, there's nothing wrong with wanting to earn money in a business but at least have CONTENT to keep them there and NB is not one of them.

That's just idiotic ... regrind everything for a new kind of resource all the while adding more stuff unique to NB like legendary modules which used to be free but does take time to acquire.

Again from a corporate perspective it makes sense ... keep players grinding for more while at the same time adding artificial content.

Artificial for the fact that the content is not new(it's the same ships), you'd just have to regrind EVERYTHING on 5 tech trees 1-10(pay FExp to skip til 5 again $$$ since Elite XP can converted to FExp with dubs).

Yeah .. I'm just a Coop/Scenario casual player ... who's here to play this game to unwind and have a relaxing time ... not to be pressured or stressed hence no Random/Ranked for me.

Dunno.

2 years on, that's still what he EU streames keep saying.

"We are currently focused on random battles"

2 years.

And that's coming from a game.

Looks like the developers of that game took better care of their customers.

Copy paste from Call of Duty / Starcraft 2, not knowing that in call of duty, they dont sell your items. And in Starcraft, the re-grind can be done in 1 day.

While in WoWs it's none of the 2. They sell your hard earned ships and make you regrind for months. All for a puny snowflake mechanic resource.

It's as if the developers / managers who made and approved of this idea does not play the game they made. At all.

 

And let's not stop there. The Puerto Rico Fiasco and Lesta CEO's unprofessional statements towards the community / playerbase still haunts WG till this day. No apology as of date.

The night didn't stop HMS Illustrious from attacking the Italians.

Spoiler

The Battle of Taranto took place on the night of 11–12 November 1940 during the Second World War between British naval forces, under Admiral Andrew Cunningham, and Italian naval forces, under Admiral Inigo Campioni. The Royal Navy launched the first all-aircraft ship-to-ship naval attack in history, employing 21 Fairey Swordfish biplane torpedo bombers from the aircraft carrier HMS Illustrious in the Mediterranean Sea.

The attack struck the battle fleet of the Regia Marina at anchor in the harbour of Taranto, using aerial torpedoes despite the shallowness of the water. The success of this attack augured the ascendancy of naval aviation over the big guns of battleships. According to Admiral Cunningham, "Taranto, and the night of 11–12 November 1940, should be remembered for ever as having shown once and for all that in the Fleet Air Arm the Navy has its most devastating weapon."

Also, this game has a lot of HUD interfaces. That alone defeats any kind of visual limitations. I remember someone posted a thread regarding to the blurry vision during thunderstorm. And although the enemy ship is almost impossible to see, the ship name & HP are still visible to him.

Edit:

This is it.

One thing I haven't seen in the game is an ingame player item mall--not the game's own shop but a place where players can sell unwanted ships or the like. I don't know if that will work in the game though. I have seen other games that do have that thing get wrecked because of the unbalanced ingame economy...
