Its something you pay for to get something in return, in this case more credits and xp. It doesnt matter if you call it a product, service or game enhancement; if you paid for it then what you used it for is wiped out, you paid for nothing.


You go to a casino you need to pay to play, so the example doesnt really hold up comparing to a FtP.


I play veteran when my legendary queue is in cooldown and Im often the higheat rated player in the match and everyone is flying T3s. The equal ships dont stop me from romping them at times.

You'd be telling your core/long time players are the time and money they spent on the game is now fot nothong because everyone is back to square one. Theyre investments would be wasted and in terms of elite status youre taking away the product they payed for. How can you not consider that harmful? Those players would likely bolt and numbers go down even further.



Which product are you referring to?


And do you mean to say that achievements are more important than gameplay? If the old alpha/beta population has to start again, big deal. People who like to play will continue to play. No sunk cost should interfere with that. This whole king of the mountain system with finely tuned builds can start fresh. At least this time more poeple will push for the heights.



Elite status. People paid for it to progress faster so if you do a wipe they will have paid for nothing in return. Sunk costs gets you somewhere, a wipe means you just threw money away. Same with all those hours of the grind; they would all mean nothing. So yes, it is a big deal if veteran players lost all they got.


Imagine if you worked for a company for years, got increases in wages, time off, benefits etc and then the company is struggling and goes "we're rolling everyone back to entry level positions because the newer employees sake." So now your wages, time off and benefits are back to where you started years earlier. Would that be no big deal? Thats pretty much a wipe does: everything they spent time and money on gets taken away. Again, I dont see how you think that isnt a problem.


Further, even with the same ships the experienced players are still going to win because of said experienced, so the whole point of your wipe doesnt even really help.

Only resurrecting this because Ive been having the same thought lately. I think an alternate main gun (maybe having to be researched/purchased) would be nice for some. While you couldnt really do it for an arty (unless maybe a rapid fire shorter range with low dps and bigger magazine but thats not really a sniper), you could do it for others. i.e. a slow firing, long range gun for JA dreads (current guns are horrid) or a gun for vettes that have longer range but less overall dps and dont devastate up close.


Of course, I wouldnt trade my JA destroyer guns for anything; imo easily the best guns in the game.


But as Belial said, I doubt it happens due to balance issues (and not making many changes period...)

Its annoying, but my guess is since youre skipping the ship select screen you cant. What I would like to see is when managing your fleets being able to reposition their order easy. Having to remove and add to get the order you want is annoying and for some reason the order is reset everytime you log in.

is there a ps4 sale? havent had a chance to log in recently.

Yeah, if they wiped it and I lost all my T5s and T4s after all that time put in, Id stop playing.

Yeah, after a few matches in a row i didnt get rewards i stopped playing for the whole weekend. so much for the credit boost...

Im having some big issues with this. In the last 24 hours Ive been unable to log in, been kicked out and at least 3 times not been given my rewards for a match. Further, the credit boost is minimal and the xp has been reduced so the grind is back in full swing.


This is ridiculous.

ok, finally was able to log in and yeah, its way too dark. the colors dont pop at all. not sure why they did that as they brightened the hanger after the CtC update for that very reason
