I can't say I agree w/ all of the points in the petition. However, I do agree with the sentiment that maintenance and progression was done poorly and needs to be reworked if not outright scrapped and remade to something else.
That all being said, I do hope for the sake of Dreadnought's well-being that the management behind the creation of this abomination of a progression system and maintenance system realize they made a severe mistake and revert and revamp. I however cannot see that happening with the warpath of damage control being made of "We're gonna tweak and work on these values!" plus considering that everything that was said of how Shipwreck 2.0 is a mistake when it was first announced was outright ignored makes me even more pessimistic about it happening.
All in all though, I am signing this petition in hopes of seeing Dreadnought returning to its glory days of actually being an excellent game and not another game being buried in a SixFoot grave like the rest of the games that follow the Wargaming (World of Tanks etc etc) model of monetization and progression.
