Title: Warships part Deux
Post by: fritzelly on May 21, 2019, 12:04 AM

Hey Boomers!


To provide you some insight into what to expect when Season 2 starts, we have provided you some information on what will take place:


Season 2 is balanced to be more offense focussed.


This Season includes a whole new Tech Tree, some changes to various Upgrade prices, and new Warship base layouts for each engine room unlock.


You will lose a certain percentage of your Rank stars at the beginning of the Season, and this will define your starting rank for season 2.


The amount of Upgrade and Unlock tokens you get is defined by the Rank tier (Legendary, Diamond, Gold, etc) you start at in the new Season.


Everyone who starts at that Rank tier will get the same starting amount to do some initial Unlocking and Upgrading before heading into battle.


You'll find more information in the Boom Box soon!

As they said the first two seasons are a test and I hope they do a full reset on season 3 as it's unfair on everyone that was bugged to hell on this first season
So hopefully they fix any bugs with starting quotas etc on this new season.

Maybe should sticky LanderZ tech tree thread?
is he doing a second one?  Or just adding to the first?

Would be great if he did a new one!

Pro Tip for Season 2 - don’t forget to scroll back through your ranks and collect free chests for earlier ranks - like I did lol.

It looked like I ran into a bunch of opponents that didn't know to scroll back to get all the free chests. It was easy wins at the beginning of this season.

I had a taskforce member tell others to upgrade their gunboat and artillery first. That obviously didn't help since his win percentage is 33%. I started unlocking everything on the path to riflemen. Then before beginning my first attack, I upgraded the landing craft and riflemen to maximum level. In these beginning stages, dropping 208 maxed riflemen overwhelms most opponents.

Warships is working so much better, not had any mismatches, chest issues or anything bad or strange so far 👍

I still have only two engines so I'm matched with others with two engines. I send all 208 rifles towards the closest engine and destroy the other one with artillery. Very fast times.

On 4 engines, got brick out now so the success rate is going up.

Not sure if this happened to anybody but I missed my daily reward boat this morning because I was in WarShips when the boat arrived.....I know that is a bug that should be fixed.

I received both my daily reward and op boats this morning.

I started at level 17 - I've now had a reward for level 17 3 times oops lol

More info. Do you know what is the likely bug? Are you losing and going back to 16 and then getting another when you get back to 17? I've found the scout other task force player bases bug has been fixed.

No pattern yet, when I was below and past level 17 I got it
Title: Re: Warships part Deux

Got level 18 twice now - trying different things to see if I can work out what it is triggering the extra rewards but no joy yet.

19 twice thrice now, seems completely random - have done nothing special

Post by: Lordofwarcordov on May 23, 2019, 07:16 AM
Nothing here, I've been to 17 twice and 11 and twelve back and fourth on my other accounts. I've read somewhere that this happened last season also for some. I'll keep trying though to look out for it.

Post by: doddsyuk on May 24, 2019, 07:29 AM
I’m stuck with just warriors and riflemen and no way to progress because they die too quick way to make a game mode unplayable supercell!
Title: Re: Warships part Deux
Post by: Brewingbeer on May 24, 2019, 06:04 PM
You can likely progress if you keep earning your three daily chests. That can be done by using artillery to kill one of the engines. It's a slow grind but you can eventually get stronger.
Title: Re: Warships part Deux
Post by: fritzelly on May 24, 2019, 10:46 PM
Well this season is much more of a drudge
Gotta unlock stuff you might not want to get stuff you probably want
Upgrades seem more expensive - maybe in my imagination
Supposed to be an Offensive season but 6 of the final stage tech tree are the offence upgrades and the start is all defence upgrades - what is wrong with this picture?

No shields which is a good thing I guess.

Lower level engine rooms are still too easy to take down maxed with just artillery and personally shouldn't be allowed. Watching people who just attack my engine rooms with just artillery makes the opponent look lazy trying to save troops.  I have level two engine rooms at the moment and i'm losing out because of people using this method.

It’s nothing to do with laziness and everything to do with expediency.  I much prefer attacking a base with troops, but (not having Instant Training), I can manage about 3 or 4 attacks before my troops are gone.  Rather than wait 4 hours for them to reload, it’s better to push on with just arty and snipe the odd ER here and there.  Occasionally it results in an unintended win but all I am looking for is enough EFs to claim a chest.  Don’t blame the players please when we are simply using the only tools available to us to progress.

Second the above.
I'd also say that is more an issue at 2ER. As you get higher, I didn't see that nearly as much.
Title: Re: Warships part Deux

I am totally bored with Warships Season 2 - will make a last minute rush towards the end to get back to stage X

Every base has the same layout - two variations with the spread out base and the crunched up base bottom left of the deck but they are rare
Hardly any deviation in proto's deployed - Doom cannon, Flotsam, SIMO - no lasers, grapplers etc
Pretty much guaranteed wins are only from Bullit core rush - I just battle my way thru stuff, drop and shock and hope, sometimes I win mainly I don't but there is no tactic attacks this season.  Gone is the flaring, shocking, gbeing targets to hopefully guarantee a win.

Every battle is the same thing - Live Die Repeat and Repeat

This is not what Season 1 was, which with all its bugs, fun and entertaining and challenging

Not sure if anyone else here is doing this, but I am maxing everything as I unlock each ER. It’s been a fun challenge. I’m close to unlocking my fourth ER. I’ve been as high as rank level 20 with only 3 ERs. The challenge is that at that level, there’s hardly anyone else with only 3 ERs so I’m constantly being matched with 4, 5, 6, and 7 ER accounts. These are essentially automatic losses. But against fellow 3 ER players I’ve enjoyed good success using all heavy rushes. Shock mines and flamethrowers pose the greatest threat, but I haven’t encountered a 3 ER base I can’t beat yet.

Soon I’ll unlock the fourth ER. With everything up to that point maxed, what are your suggestions for priority upgrades? For sure Barrage and Shock are important, as well as GBE and TD. I’ll be able to unlock everything immediately, but upgrades will take some time.

Wouldn't bother with the SL - more ER's you get the more likely you will be hit with ER rush and bullitt

GBE increase and particularly troop damage - its all about speed.

I upgraded Kavan to lvl4 to use second wind - it’s maxed out when he is lvl4 ... however, there were two issues with Kavan.

Firstly, I was using warriors with brick - I hadn’t upgraded my smoke enough to use with Kavan.... secondly.... I found that brick and BO is better with Grens to clear in the time scale than Kavan and second wind.

The first won’t be an issue for you. But the second is worth considering - if you want to win, I’d say BO is more important and to leave Kavan until a little later.

I second what Bro was mentioning...all heavy rush with Brick and BO....land...flare to 1st ER...throw a couple smokes...press BO...when the come out of smoke they go nuts...flare and shock to next ER...etc etc...its been working well but have to smoke Brick to keep her alive sometimes...been working against 4 ER

Well, decided to give up trying any more on my two mini accounts.
Over the last 24-48 my opponents have suddenly become higher than I am - and I’m still moving backwards. I only wish that I’d still been able to get Indy back up to rank 21.

Oh well.... still got my 2 others to mess with. And looking forward to the next one.

What troop combo are you using?  I was rank 19-20 for a number of days then switched my troop combo....Listed below.....

2 boats rifles Maxed
1 boat medics  ALMOST maxed
rest grens Maxed
Kavan (Second Wind)

1 boat rifles, then medics, Kavan down first

wait till they get to mid/top of ramp then send all grens plus rest of rifles......When Kavan gets right behind the grens when they stop hit second wind to send out more johnsons....use second wind up to 48 GBE then start using shocks.....Minimal flaring needed with this combo........I currently am @ rank 24 using this........Just unlocked my 7th ER....Unlock tokens spent on BD...TD....TH mainly with a little in GBE.....I start with 90 GBE right now.....

Hope that helps a little if you want to grind a little bit more....  :)

I tend to use either warriors (but effectively that is only 2 Attacks as I don’t have instant training). Or grens. With sparky critter swarm. On my map I’d use explosive charges.... but I’d need to upgrade sparky tbh to get any use out of that at all.

I have added a boat of riflemen before.

With my 4 ER account i run grens with brick... and max bo. So long as I can get a 3rd Bo out of her I usually win against other 4ERs  But not getting her shot is another issue 😆

I’m finding I’m less successful at running HRZ with Kavan second wind than I was the last time. I have no idea why this is. Mentally I’ve not been able to adapt for some reason.

I have mixed it up a bit, Necessity is the mother of invention lol, and I’ve used grens to clear the front and a few defences behind them to launch HZ... Cleared the mines, had more GBE...  I also used grens once to clear the area before launching my warriors 😂. Top tip... let your grens die first. No really lol

I’m usually happy giving most things a shot, but as I’ve not upgraded everything lol.
