I strongly agree with pretty much everything Bazza said. This is from the perspective of a player who mains Dessies, Dreads, and TACs, with moderate Arty and 'Vette experience. I don't prefer to use 'Vettes, but have spent enough time in them to fully understand their strengths and weaknesses, and have little problem killing them in any of my other classes, sometimes even Arty.


I think they're in a good place right now, but I'd like to see some other ships be able to horn in on their niche a bit. For instance, more offensive TACs like the Harwich, but with some range or something. I also see a lot of Arty-dominated battles in Veteran, and for me the only real counter I have in my fleet for good Arty is Dread nukes, forcing them to brawl one of my Dessies, or more Arty. I'd like to see more interesting choices in counter play in the future, as 'Vettes often fail to be a hard counter to Arty when the Arty are set up and used correctly.

For some reason every time I try to respond in that thread, my response doesn't post...so I had to make a separate thread just to post a respond. Quality forum code there....


4th attempt at posting this:

To paraphrase what I had tried to say: Game is likely emptier than usual due to the rewards getting nerfed back down with latest patch. It felt amazing for a week or so while the rewards were bugged, now feels really meh to finish a match and see what you didn't earn.


Having recently unlocked something like 6 T4s and buying 4 of them, I'm personally feeling a bit of DN burnout, and have little to no desire to play with the current unrewarding feel of the game. I can no longer convince my buddy to even log in, as he has less patience than I do for the long grinds and is much further away from T4s than I ever was.


I have a feeling that I'm not the only person who played a bunch while we had the bugged rewards, loved it, and thought "oh wow, if the game felt like this all the time, it'd be great." Then the latest patch, and now I feel like I'm working again, not playing a fun game.


I imagine queue times will come back, when either the next patch hits and they perhaps adjust rewards to meet somewhere in the middle between bugged and abysmal, or at the very latest when they do the maintenance removal patch eventually. I know I'm not gone, just unable to convince myself to login lately.

I have tried to reply 3 times in this thread and it never posts...

Well, I tried responding once and I think the forums ate it, or perhaps a mod, even though I didn't say anything harsh...

This is a test. Mods, feel free to delete, this is just a test thread to see if it sticks, I'm having posts disappear, and not sure if it's the buggy forum or what.

I have a feeling times have gone up because there's less people playing atm. Game felt great for a short bit there, when we had bugged rewards, which actually felt like what rewards should look more like all the time for this game. Then latest patch hits and the rewards now feel lower than ever before.


I love this game mechanically, I do enjoy playing it, but with the rewards feeling like they do, it just doesn't feel good to play right now. I know I find myself with little to no urge to log in lately, because I have 4 T4s recently bought, all with a lot of work yet to do and it just seems like a grind I'm not going to enjoy right now. I can't convince my buddy to bother logging in at all anymore, either, he has less patience than I do for long, un-enjoyable grinds.


I'll bet the feelings I've been experiencing about DN lately are not unique to myself and people I know.

The return to hangar crash with maintenance charged - Claimed it was fixed, yet myself and many others are still experiencing it...so it's clearly not in any way fixed.


You guys really need to look into how things are coded...I've never ever heard of code where you cannot remove a feature such as maintenance by simply adding a "no" or "0" somewhere in some line...if it's somehow integrally hard-coded into your whole system...well that just makes no sense whatsoever, and whoever initially coded maintenance into the game really needs to be let go, and never allowed to tell anyone they know how to code anything, ever, ever again.


That plus the flagship changing to whatever the game feels like it should be, and my newest bug, inability to control my mouse or move my view around the ship in every match until after I hit "escape" then "resume game".


Also I've been experiencing actual server lag since most recent patch, which I've never seen in DN previously.


All-in-all, the most recent patch was just pretty terrible compared to the last several, and made the game a lot less enjoyable overall. The rewards feel pretty awful now as well, both with or without Elite status.

Agreed, allow us to select 2 out of 3 modes, I think most people would prefer that.


I personally hate Elimination, don't mind Onslaught, and love TDM, so I'd likely select TDM and Onslaught for faster queues, and ignore Elimination, since I can't stand it.

I have a feeling there's a language barrier going on here...


But Officer Briefings are not captains...there are no captains in Dreadnought. The OBs are basically 4 interchangeable passive skills that you mix and match on your ships.


Some unlock on T3s, some on T4s. A good bet is to unlock every OB you think you might ever need, you want at least 4 decent ones, and if you plan on using more than one ship, you probably want them all, or most of them.
