Warships = CoC Builderbase?

CoC Builderbase was fun. For like 3 days.  Then it wasn't.  I hope warships is better.

4 years I've played this game.  Will be 65 by the end of this week. I don't want it to just fizzle out. Putting a lot of faith in Warships.
What's the "Suspected Spammer" label about?

The suspected spammer label is a post count title. As your post count increases the title changes to another tongue in cheek title.
However I think we should maybe reconsider having this one so early in the list as several users have been confused by it and it could be a bit off putting for new people on the forum.

Well spammers only ever make 1 or 2 or 3 posts so kinda defeats the purpose but get what you mean

So, you're an admin, but you have little hope for the game?

I'm definitely not a spammer.  I was signed up on the original SC forum.  Then the Reddit One. Now this. I'm 93 on CoC. Got bored trying to do TH12.I lead a 50 member Boom TF, but me and everyone in it are getting bored. Crab is fun... but it's not enough.  I pay for instant troops, so SC are earning from me. But if they don't make it more interesting... they will lose my $10/month.

Crab is probably the only thing keeping me interested at the moment

If you have posts on the original forum then PM me your username over there and then PM your username that you use here on the SC forum in a PM and I can move your posts to your account here.

With your experience of coc builder base what are your main issues with it?
If it can be improved in some way to make it a positive thing for boom beach?

While I have a feeling the warships will be similar to the builder base, we can hope the boom team has learned from the builder base and improved on it. Kind of like how Boom Beach is an improvement on CoC.

The CoC Builder Base was a second Base that was added to CoC for live PvP.  Your troops and buildings upgraded separately from the troops and buildings on your main base.  There was some minor linkage between the main CoC Townhall and the Builder Base.  Upgrade options were added for certain buildings on the main TH as your Builder Base upgraded

It has been a LONG time since I have played CoC, so the exact details are vague for me but I seem to recall that it used a different currency and resources.  Not 100% sure on that recollection though.  You could earn a set amount of awards per day (I think off of either three or six attacks) then you could play as much as you wanted to, but you would get no rewards.

In my opinion, what made it boring was that once the newness wore off it was still CoC.  Different currency, new stuff to do but at the end of the day it was still the core game mechanics of CoC: drop your troops and do what you could to help them.  The Builder Base was hyped as something new and game changing, in the end a lot of people realized it was merely a repackaging of existing game mechanics with some minor tweaks to the rules of play.

I also recall that MM was an issue as was figuring out game balance.  There were some major OP troop combos.  Like 100% win combos.  It was also common to get people who you could not compete with.  Since it was head to head and only the winner got rewards, it caused a bit of a kerfuffle.  I seem to recall they got the MM and balance sorted out eventually.

Another issue that people raised was that there was some awkwardness to the Live PvP experience.  Getting a match could be slow at times.  If you finished quickly (I.e. wiped out) you were locked until the opponent finished their attack.  You could watch them but you could not launch another attack until they were done.  I don’t know what people expected from Live PvP.

The initial info on the warship sounds very similar to the Builder Base.  It would make sense if it were similar as there is shared DNA and brain trust between the games.

I think some of that stuff (like the lockouts) is likely to carry over into Warships,IMO. I don't think they'll b3 able to find a way around it.

Other aspects, like the MM, I'm hoping that they have ideas built into their programming ahead of time bc of CoC. Sort of like CoC was our beta tester. What I'm hearing from the dev video and the Boom Box update today is that they definitely have big ideas for Warships -- new interactive and social functions. So yeah maybe the concept is based on Builder Base from CoC, but I'm really thinking that SC is just using that as a springboard to bigger things in BB.
