Devs doubling down and expanding fleet maintenance costs in update 1.4 despite unanimous opposition...signed.

I actually don't care which direction some of the points you brought up are taken. I feel the game could be fun either way. Maintenance fees make sense to me, as long as I have enough coin to make it to the next match where all the fun is I'm ok. Also, if the game is going to be tier progression based then it should take a really long time to unlock the higher tier ships. I came into this game thinking it would be like World of Tanks and based on the updates I think that's the direction the devs want to take it. In that game you can play for years and still only have a handful of the top tier tanks because it is so hard to unlock them, but that makes it fun and the tanks really have value. It also means you can play the game for years and there is still lots to discover.

The one aspect I would like to be brought out more is strategy. I honestly wish that Elimination was the only mode (or at least primary) because I hate the endless respawn feel of FPS. I would like to see more complex maps, more real time info like a better mini map that clearly indicates routes of attack and ship positions, and to at a glance see what class and tier an enemy ship is so that you can react with strategy instead of just shoot all your guns and run if your dying faster than he is.

I was so happy I got the beta invite a week ago. However, the game wasn't at all as I imagined and from what I have seen on YouTube. The game is too grindy, too forceful and atm, WAY TOO BUGGY (although this is beta so, that is ok). I mean....I really want to enjoy this game but I can't now, which is a real shame. Please, Devs. Accept the mistake and make a game fun. If a game is fun, people will spend money on it.

Consider this reply as my signature for the petition.

The last dev announcement was the last drop for me. I quit. I have uninstalled and not once regretted it. If the current state will change to something that's fun playing again, I might consider coming back, however, that would need a serious make-over of the current system so...

Thanks one who chooses to be everyone!

I agree in particular with OP's #2 and #3 points. Losing access to the ships we wanted to play was ridiculous. I'm fine with a progression tree for weapons and modules within a ship - but where the heck is the logic in "oh, if you research a Drain Torpedo and Protean Autoguns, now you suddenly know how to buy a Palos!"??? (which uses neither of those, and is also almost a crippled useless ship, but that's a different rant)

I've uninstalled this game twice now, and the only reason I'm still playing this game at all is because I sank the money into a founder's pack and I keep checking to see if they've listened to user feedback and improved it any.

The grind just to get the ships we want to play is excessive. Have a grind within a ship to get the "cool" weapons, sure. But arbitrarily limiting the ship selection (as bait/incentive to do it?) is harsh. The Recruit games are so weird and boring since there's only a few ship types available (or allowed!) in it. Then the step to Veteran is too steep and you spend all your time getting destroyed because you can't afford anything once you've gotten there. I've been playing mostly Recruit games just to earn the money to buy things at the Veteran level because I just get creamed in the Veteran level with my skeletal tier III ship. Kinda messed up.

So, yeah, signing this petition - we need a revamp. I like a build tree, but the weapons and modules should be in a tree, ships shouldn't be. Let us buy what we want and upgrade it as we can afford to. Don't make us buy ships or modules we don't want to pay for or play. Good players will already make a small diverse fleet to adjust to game conditions, but let them pick the ships they prefer for that.

Thanks man, I miss you around these parts smile

I agree with all of these points. The game is taking a very greedy path. We all hoped that it didn't come to this. I was on GamesCom in 2015 and played Dreadnaught there the first time. It was so fun that my friends and me queued a couple of times, just to play it. From that day, I looked forward to play it more. Now I own it and the game disgusts me. I left it for the same reasons I left WoT (yes, that comparison again, sorry). I will not return until some major changes have been done to the maintenance system. I support the idea of killing it entirely and just put it in place for leaving during a match as punishment.
Please... do not be this greedy, Devs... we know, you have to eat and pay your hardware and other bills and so on, but don't be like this! If there isn't any other option, just make the game buy to play for 40 bucks. I'm sure a lot of people would get it. You can release expansions later.
Just please, I'm literally begging you, save this game, stop the greed. I want to play this game that I fell in love with 1 1/2 years ago.
Agreed, hopefully we can effect the kind of change we need to make DN great again!
