Full agree with the OP, the new prog system is a joke im sorry to say , another WOT clone smile no thanx. Almost everything that got me interested in the game was basicly dumped and now i find i have no intrest in playing .

revert to pre prog 2.0 ,loose the WOT teir system and go from there ,IMO its the only way to go .
Thanks for the support!

My last hope at this point is that maybe they'll allow custom games to set rules that bring us close to what we once had. It'd basically be T4 ships with all modules and briefs unlocked. No maintenance. We'd get no XP or Credits... but at least it would be the DN we loved.

Now if they let us actually search custom games on top of that... we'd be really set. However I feel that mode would be so popular people wouldn't grind the "main" mode at all.

Here's hoping they aren't ignoring the feedback and are at least considering altering some mechanics fairly heavily. If not right away... at some point.

Everything I write is based on the PC version.

Have not played for a long time still waiting for the game to be worth playing again. Like the ideas if they happen cool if not the way the game is now I got better things to do with my time. And Devs I'm not trying to be mean just honest.

Rule #1 There is an exception to every rule.
Rule #2 Anything is possible it is just a matter of probable.
Rule #3 See Rules 1-2.

With as long as this thread has been going, I think it's time to close it. Honestly, it probably should've been done a bit ago considering there are quite a few dev bashing and overly negative posts in here. There's nothing wrong with opinions at all, but there's always a right way and wrong way. I'm sure you all catch my drift. The call for a petition is admirable, but as a lot of you already know, mechanics such as "Maintenance" aren't going to just be completely lifted. I mention this because I / we know how a lot of you (people that signed the petition) feel about the progression system, tier system, and maintenance. We've mentioned it before, especially me, but everything mentioned in the first post is not solidified by any means. Thus multiple aspects of the game will see adjustments and tweaks until it feels right to the teams and the players. But it's going to take time, we had so many pressing matters that took priority over others, the server stability alone was a huge one. With server stability no longer being an issue (knock on wood) our teams can now focus even harder on said issues. Know that we hear you loud and clear, we always have, and that hasn't changed. But just because you aren't seeing immediate adjustments to maintenance fees / functionality or progression flow doesn't mean we simply aren't doing it and /or are ignoring you. We appreciate everyone's input and support, as always. All we ask is for your patience, as our goal is to make Dreadnought the best experience it can be. Goals like that don't just happen in days or weeks, they often take months or even years. All of this is admirable and appreciated. But, there can only be so many posts regarding how we're failures / stubborn / etc. before enough is enough. Again, this has nothing to do with anyone's opinion of Dreadnought. You can make a constructive thread regarding your likes and dislikes, in fact, that is always encouraged. We just want to ensure that they can still remain respectful. Thanks again captains.
