Title: Warships Season 3
Post by: fritzelly on Jun 22, 2019, 12:38 PM

Hey Boomers,
 
 With Warships Season 3 starting very soon, we have prepared some boomtastic things which will be releasing with this new update and the new Warship Season!
 
 
 A NEW WARSHIP TROOP:
 
 Push through the Tech Tree in Season 3, to get your hands on a brand new Troop which is only available in Warships:
 
 ​
 
 INTRODUCING BOMBARDIER:
 BLAST 'EM AWAY!
 
 Bombardiers blast out shells out of their long-range canon to deal massive damage to buildings and are very proud of their pinpoint accuracy.
 
 They prefer to be on the back line to provide support for your other Troops as they can be crushed easily by Turrets and with age creeping up on them, they need 2 (Gun Boat) Energy to help them deploy.
 
 These special Troops are only available in Warships, and you can unlock them if you reach the required node in the Tech Tree.
 
 ​
 
 END OF SEASON REWARDS:
 
 You wanted even more rewards at the end of the Season for pushing in a Warship Season!
 
 Starting from Season 3, we have thrown in Power Powder, Trader Tickets and even a new Warship Trophy for you to claim!
 
 ​
 
 SHOW OFF WITH A NEW WARSHIP TROPHY:
 
 At the end of the Season, you will now be able to obtain a beautiful Warship Trophy to place on both your Warship and your main island!
 
 Make sure you stay in that Tier and don't fall back down as the Trophy you claim depends on where you finish at the end of the Season!
 
 ​
 
 TROOP TIMERS HALVED:
 
 We heard you and so from Warships Season 3, and onwards, we have reduced the Troop Timers for Warships by 50%!
 
 ​
 
 WARSHIP BATTLE STATUS:
 
 To help understand what your opponent is doing during a battle, we have added some information along the top!
 
 You now be able to see if your opponent is; Scouting, Attacking or Retreating!
 
 ​
 
 IMPROVEMENTS / CHANGES:

 WIN STREAK BONUS STARS:
 
 To help with balancing, players that are in the Legendary Tier will *NOT* get the bonus Stars for their win streaks.
 
 This will help make the competition at the top much fairer and showcase a true test of skill!
 
 ​
 
 FEWER CHESTS IN LEGENDARY TIER:
 
 To help with balancing at the Top of the Leaderboard, Trophy Road Chests in the Legendary Tier will be obtainable ONLY at Ranks; 1, 5 and 10.
 
 ​
 
 SUPERCELL ID UPDATE:
 
 We are updating Supercell ID to make it even easier for you to switch over to your different bases
 We will continue to add more functionality to this in the future.
 
 ​
 
 EXTRAS:
 
 - Stopped multi-node changes to add Tech Level Points.
 
 - Fix for Multi-node changes to remove any Buildings or Mines players previous obtained.
 
 - Various other small bug fixes and improvements

No they are still posting there but not directing people to reddit from within the game or from their official sites of Facebook and Twitter it seems.

RickC is also back to posting on discord which is great but it seems to be a confused situation.

Post by: fritzelly on Jun 23, 2019, 01:00 AM
What I would like to see in future Warships is a more "make your one time only choice" options

Instead of a singular tech tree where you can unlock everything (eventually) something more along the lines pick which tech tree you want...maybe something more defence orientated or something more attack orientated.


With the three month seasons there is no reason not to be able to plan out stuff like this


And even when you pick a tech tree you have options you have to choose - so for example you go offence...maybe one path is more TD is first or the other path is more GBE is first (in this offence case you get all eventually but it's just a case of which you want first)


I think this would make Warships something all together different and you won't end up with every base looking exactly the same and nearly every attack the same and makes you think a lot more about what you want Warships to be.



Thoughts?

I wonder if you have to get to the last node on the tech tree for that troop?  I like that they added trophies and better rewards!  It's coming together nicely.  My assumption is we will see much more activity and people playing in season 3........I know a number of people just waiting for the first FULL SEASON....

I like the month with a few days to reset it.

Suppose they need the time to work out something to do for the next one lol.

I want to be able to unlock exploding reindeer poop as a gunboat ability.

On a serious note though, will they extend the tech tree, make stuff cost more, or give us fewer unlock/upgrade tokens to slow people down?

Speaking of Rick C posting on Discord. Did anyone else see Yallik giving it to him. Time to put those 2 in a ring and let them settle it. Go Yallik.

Post by: Artist formerly known as Crows Nest on Jun 24, 2019, 05:17 PM
It was Yallik and Caesar making some strong points, one of which was improved task force searching to give valid results. A few days later there are reports of improved task force search results. Coincidence...

We don’t get to see everything(anything?) Supercell does behind the scenes but RickC seems pretty positive and responsive even when getting pummelled.

Let’s hope he continues to care and work hard for boom beach.

Before this weekend though, Rick's last messages were from 6/3/2019, not sure I wouldn't call a 3 week break from Community Managing either "responsive" or 'working hard for Boom Beach"!

Of course, it is the internet 🤪 Thanks to ScarletIndy for transferring the posts from discord to reddit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/BoomBeach/comments/c3vhem/discord_comments_from_rickc_today/

Discord comments from RickC today
u/ScarletIndy
Tristan: Will we get warship trophies for the rank we hit this season?

RickC: No. It will start from next season.



Black Sirius: @RickC is there any possiblities we can get bombardiers for main island in next update ?

LanderZ: Hey @RickC . Any word on the daily & chest timers still being bugged this season? We lose time on the daily chests (I'm ending some 25 minutes behind where the season started, never hit 4/4 chests), and "first win of the day" seems wildly sporadic in terms of when it starts.

RickC: Main island right now is not on the cards. But can’t say I have not already asked about it.

LanderZ: Sorry, I meant for Warships I mean the recurring ER chests, yeah. The ones that stack from 0/4 to 4/4

RickC: I don’t think this has been looked into. But thanks for the heads up. Maybe I can ask them to take a look into it.

Gonna go grab some sun now. Have a great rest of the day!



Caesar | Seals #YQPC2:

Better in game tf search

Shard converter ( or lower the cost of diamonds to convert from 24 to something reasonable maybe 2-5 )

Easier acquisition of intel each day

More challenging war factory for higher players ( or at minimum not repeating same layouts )

More challenging imitation game at higher stages ( or at minimum not using same bases )

A competitive way to challenge other task forces (NOT using pvp aspect)

Completely new events that do not regurgitate the same “ drop and clear style play”

New troops , meaning brand new concepts , NOT “ overhauls of existing troops that are just slightly different

New gunboat abilities , meaning new concepts , NOT “ the same concepts just slightly different “

New operation base layouts at least every 3 months

Easier acquisition of pp

Show non op attacks even if op completed

Proper base builder

Something new to spend tokens on for max players / players done with hero upgrades

new high level boss bases

Troops skins and look changes when upgraded

In game chat feature that shows how many players are in game at a given time

New ways to decorate base

New buildings on base , maybe trophy storage of some sort

New levels and look of landing crafts

An option for the designation of tf families , identifier of some sort , and not losing stats when you move between tf in the family

Not losing cumulative stats in general ( your stats stay with in the tf you earned them in )

Better options for sub dives , intel ..scale dives to player level ..ie : replace resource dive options for max player ..instead of resources only crystals, protos , intel etc.

Eliminate intel

Eliminate sabotage

Intel offered w trader

Ability to cancel sub dive

Big head mode “”



RickC: This list has been passed to the team (I see more has been added since) but I cannot say yes or no.

I am pushing for some of these things



Caesar: Why do they only add warships content



RickC: They wanted to complete warships

We have a lot of players who are playing it and have requested many of the things we added

A lot of players do care for it as well

There are two types of players now.

We need to get that balance

Thanks for the updated list



Yallik: I guess those of us who have been around for years can just go bugger off, yeah?

RickC: That is not the case and I don’t like to think that you feel that way

We all knew that Warships was being worked on (and I joined when this was happening). We have solved things since and then working on the season 3.

There are a few things on that list that would be great and I am and will continue to ask for them.

Some of them are just trying to make the game change in ways that I know they won’t do

But some are cool ideas

Warships needs to be completed, yes

That is something that needs to be done for that section of the game.

Again, I am not the dev but I pass on these and push them for you.



Caesar: Yes ... a there are many original players a that have been here for 5 years . Please try and include the wants and needs of THOSE players in future update discussion. Please

RickC: I always do.

That is the job

I honestly do not know what else to say other than, I am trying and I will get some of these in for you.



Tristan: I love the new Warship update, can't wait for troop training times to halve

RickC: The first person to say something nice to me lol

Thanks!



andromeda ™: That list Caesar shared up there … has been floating around for what seems like years. Multiple CMs who have all acknowledged it and that's as far as it's gone. I'm sure you can understand why people are frustrated. Some items on that list could drastically improve quality of life in the game. Specifically task force search. I encourage everyone to leave your task force..then go in game and try to find one that is active and has what you're looking for. I promise you won't.

Yallik: I'm sorry. I'm not trying to come across like a dick here. But it's the truth. It's very frustrating to feel like we've been utterly neglected.

RickC: That is not the case. You guys are invested into the game and love it because this is what discord showcases. I do not see you as invalid at all. Do not feel like that



Drowstew: So @RickC once season 3 is live is the plan to move to season 4 and so on that any quality of life changes get skipped

RickC: Season 3 update is here and we have ideas for the following update that need to be done. But I have requested for some things to be added. Give me time. Please.....?

You know the 50% troop timers was something that the community brought forward?

All of these things I got in from the community

Thanks for the chat!

Lol...ya bug off Yallik...to funny. I have a feeling Rick is already getting fed up with his job.
Title: Re: Warships Season 3
Post by: TheBro88 on Jun 25, 2019, 04:16 AM
My wish was granted! (See Jerky Genie thread in OT)

First, this is a good update for Warships. Some people will say “but it doesn’t change anything in the main game.” Yes, but they need to get Warships right before tackling anything major. Can we just acknowledge that at that moment there are no game breaking bugs AND there’s a whole new gameplay feature?

Second, I don’t think Rick is tired of his job. I think he handled the comments on Discord pretty well.

Third, why we gotta make Rick the enemy? Blame it on Drew if we need a bad guy. He closed the forum. Everything since Rick got here has been remarkably smooth in comparison. Remember getting the “this month in Boom” videos a week into the month? Not with Rick. He’s on top of stuff.

Fourth, I like Warships. There. I said it. 😂

Rick had a 3 week absence from Discord before that thread. I would find it easy to not be tired of my job if I could take that much time off.

At least time with warriors there was skill involved. But now we have a situation where people are up on the LB  with 2ER, because they had an advantage last season... from the season before which was bug ridden.


I am so disappointed.

On this account i am doing not so good. I haven't won any battles yet. I wish i had upgraded my landing crafts first like i did on my second account which is doing much better than this one is.

It sucks you don't lose points any more if you retreat or get defeated. I think an undo button or "are you sure" feature should be implemented to stop you making silly mistakes on the tech tree.

I have four landing crafts which fit three heavies in each and not a single win since.

Last season you would lose a star each time you were defeated or retreated bringing you down a rank. Not this time it seems.

I would agree that this season has been a disappointment so far. Playing without flares is just bad game play. Here's hoping that it gets better soon but as Fritz said its gonna be awhile before we even unlock the 3rd engine room

Hooka? That's heavy-zooka. Zookas are not available until after the third ER. I'm running heavy-rifle. 4 boats of each.

There is a strategy to employ when flares are not available. I didn't know about it until a TF member mentioned it. Put every single defense on one side in a long line starting at the landing area. Put the 2 ERs by themselves on the other side. The landing troops are compelled to fight through all the defenses before moving on to the ERs.

You do a split attack. Wait for some of your troops to clear [some] of the left side - then release 3 boats the other side.

GBE on furthest ER

On split attacks, I find that I lose by a few seconds. I just do blunt force attacks. Launch every troop first, then use barrage on farthest defenses. At this point in the game without flares, it's just a sprinting contest. Every little second you can squeeze out of an attack gets you a win.

What level are your Art and gun boat.

Tbh I do lose by a few seconds. Realise the second split too early... or too late and it’s game over.

I’m finding that the more defences people upgrade the more GBE I collect.

Hopefully,

I know I need to unlock flares and brick - but I really like warriors. They have proved useful in the last 3 seasons - particularly when towards the end game. I’m assuming people are trying to defend against heavies still...

Well I'll say it, warship sucks. Everyone has the same base layout and it's pot luck whether you or your opponent wins by a couple of seconds. Even if you win a chest the rewards are a pittance meaning you need to wait a day or two to accrue enough to upgrade something.

I'm done with it. Someone let me know when the new season starts, it can't be any worse than this.

If you have a chest ready the timer didn’t show. But it still counted down. They are doing a maintenance to fix this now.

Well now that the maintenance break is over. Seems someone flipped the wrong switch; servers are down.  3:20pm in Helsinki, hope they remember before they go home for the day! I'm about to miss my first op! That'll teach me not to strike sooner! 🙄

I agree with you, it is very very grindy. Win 1, lose 1, win 3, lose 4 repeat for 90 days.

Am I a better player in day 65 of Warships than I was on day 1? Maybe slightly. Am I enjoying Boom Beach more now? No. Is Warships bad? No. Is it for me? No but there is more to Boom Beach than Warships and I do enjoy Boom Beach so my sub continues.

If you aren’t enjoying Boom Beach and have given all the aspects of Boom Beach a fair go then I would suggest taking a break and looking at other games. Your account will still be here if/when you come back, I am sure more bugs will be squashed (and more created 🤪) in that time.

If you do find a game that you enjoy more and isn’t a long term grindfest then please let us know here. I have looked and they all appear to be just a grind of a different sort.

Shouldn't have to grind though, should we? It's a game for which some of us pay subs. If it's no fun why would I not cancel my sub?

Well, I partly agree. I think that 3 months is waaay to long. And there isn’t enough difference in strategy early on.

However. The game is a marathon, not a race - unless you want it to be.

I’m trying to run it. I had 3 of my accounts on the 🇬🇧 LB ... and hit a very bad losing streak dropping out of crystal and missing all of those nice chests :(

Then, tonight, I got all 4 on the LB.

Ok so, that may not sound so exciting to some- but For me I think it is good.

Whilst I was very sceptical about warships... it is adding another branch to the game. There’s warships, mega crab, TF OPs  and the individual LB too.

I started another account when I got bored. So far I’m up to 4 of them 😂

Ok so..... tonight I did what I thought would be impossible! I got all 4 of my accounts on the British LB for warships lol.


No instant training and started off low  around rank 11.

Loops - 488 (about to drop off into obscurity)
Indy -  428 my smallest HQ16
Indigo - 386 (my HQ18)

And

Lil’ miss ....285 (who would have been a bit higher but didn’t check until after I lost a match 🙈)


I do wonder how high I can push the smaller accounts as they will hit their cap, but at the moment .... I’m looking forward to pushing a bit more with them :)

Once you get to 4 ER the game changes, no quick core rushes and the game becomes a bit more exciting about what troops to use

I hope so. I loved using warriors last season, but I hate that my troop choices felt so restricted.

Well I'll say it, warship sucks. Everyone has the same base layout and it's pot luck whether you or your opponent wins by a couple of seconds. Even if you win a chest the rewards are a pittance meaning you need to wait a day or two to accrue enough to upgrade something.

I'm done with it. Someone let me know when the new season starts, it can't be any worse than this.

There is a good reason for there to be paltry resources in each chest to use to make upgrades in Warships. The season is 3 months long. If they were generous with their upgrade tokens, then everyone would be maxed before the end of the first month. If that happened, it would be a grind fighting all the other maxed bases. If you are not a leader board chaser, then you'd quit once maxed because there isn't anything worth fighting for.

I echo his comments.....They also added the star decrease @ a fully maxed level making it imperative that top level players continue to attack.  They can no longer "park" @ Leg X

Hey Boomers,
 
 
 To help with balancing, players that are in the Legendary Tier will *NOT* get the bonus Stars for their win streaks.
 
 This will help make the competition at the top much fairer and showcase a true test of skill!

Some feedback from the lower end of the food-chain. I am very frustrated because i can´t win any battle. Every opponent i get is way stronger than me, with more turrets or turets with more hp/dps, more toops or troops with more dps/hp. The matchmaking is quite unfair.


I totally dislike the concept with everything locked behind a tech tree, and i also absolutely dislike the time-factor. Even if i get any er destroyed i loose the battle because i am 1 second slower then the opponent.

That´s why i quit the warship campaign for good, because the warship campaign is a pain in the ass.  >:(

What rank are you? What ER level?
The reason upgrades are locked behind a tech-tree is to give something to strive for. In the main game, you have to collect the resources and then wait for the build to complete. In WS, the builds are instantaneous.
How would you suggest determining the winner of WS battle?
Also, the change from stars to ER for filling chests was specifically made to help players in your situation. Why does it matter if you "lose" the battle, if you still can get some ERs.

Unfortunately many of us have the same experience when we get stuck and can’t progress.

If you can share your tech tree maybe we can help. It does mean you plugging away at the start. But once you start to make progress you will find it much. Easier :)

Even though I am a bit higher it’s not unusual for me to make progress... then fall back drastically only to move forward a few days later.

I have an account on my kids Ipad that doesnt get much play time.I am still in 2ER level there, and it is brutally boring!

My other accounts I got going right away at the start of the season. Most everyone else was at roughly the same level, so figuring out the optimal strategies for turret placement, pathing the heavies to the ER was important and interesting.
Now, it seems most of the players that are still at 2ER have maxed out all their turrets, which makes it impossible to get any ERs. And they have maxed out barrage, which means they can take out both ERs in a couple seconds.

Twice today I barraged my own troops. I meant to use flare but forgot that barrage was selected. I used to make this error occasionally in the main game but I can't recall the last time I did it. I don't know why I'm doing it in Warships.

Warships isn’t bad but it is not great in my opinion. They are trying to mash odd shaped blocks into odd shaped holes in that the sheer variety of the tech tree isn’t and can’t be handled by their match making and league table.
Someone said that everyone is trying to find an advantage or flaw to exploit, which I totally agree with.
The league table needs to be broken down into tech levels dictated by engine rooms available. Yeah we would end up with 5/6 champions but who cares that is still an achievement for the players to be the best within their league. Matchmaking should occur within that league and scaled by tech used.

Hi, everyone,

I just want to know why a lot of players are placed no defenses their Warship, but they're still playing. It's obvious they are gonna lose with 5 Ers and no defenses against one with all defenses placed.

Especcially, players on leaderboard.

Thanks for you attention and replies
Title: Re: Warships Season 3
Post by: Brewingbeer on Aug 06, 2019, 06:09 PM
As far as I can tell, they're still not playing. They've maxed out on levels and have a high win percentage. They've stopped with all battles and are just coasting now.
Title: Re: Warships Season 3

Yes, maybe players on top ten leaderboard aren't playing anymore.

But many more are still playing, yesterday I fought with five players in these conditions. I'm level I as they were too, is not such a big deal to clear all defenses.

At the higher levels of Legendary, the pool of players is much smaller, which leads to very long wait times for a match.


Hademus (#11 currently) posts frequently on the Discord channel.

He said it was taking him several hours of waiting to get matches enough to fill his chests.

Was considering ranking down just to be able to get more battles.

Im not sure if that is what players are doing with no defenses, but clearly they know they wont win.

I guess this is most logical explanation for players not at higher levels of legendary: ranking down just to be able to get more battles and Chest's refills.

I feel confident that after this season the situation may begin to “right” itself.

A huge part of the problem is that those who had huge advantages,  that is extra chests and able to play,  against those who had limited number of chests and couldn’t play as they had no troops.

This was continued in the 2nd season... and now into the 3rd by providing a significant head start in terms of tokens, higher ranks (providing more tokens per chest)

Following on from this season I expect to see more people in legendary.  The extra star bumping people up over the 3 month season:

Next full season, hopefully, there will be more competition for people at the top.

Post by: Brewingbeer on Aug 08, 2019, 03:49 PM
To prevent people from coasting, it would seem that if each player lost one star daily, the players in the top 10 would be forced to engage other players in battles to maintain their status.

The Warships meta at 6 ERs has changed markedly over the last few days.  A diagonal line of defences across the ship has become de riguer with the ERs above an below.  It has taken some thinking at how to get a decent paced clear.  Unlocking and maxing critters has helped.

I'm at L3 (close to L4) and seeing nearly all bases with bunched up defences - would like to see how your tanks handle that. I think they would struggle big time
At 2 mins to take down a base I wouldn't say is slow with tanks, I still have a spread out base and at a rough guess nearly every attack is taking over 2 mins to complete (if they even complete)

I am stumped. Stuck around lvl 25. Barrage and Artillery are maxed. I have 3ERs unlocked.

Observation:  I attack dozens of other 3ER players every day. They seem to be able to kill me at 3:46-3:48 without fail by simply hitting each of my ERs with a single Artillery and single Barrage. Bam bam boom I’m dead.

Question:  Since I have everything maxed, why am I only able to kill an ER 30-40% of the time with a single Artillery and Single Barrage?  It appears all of my opponents have significantly more powerful artillery and barrage than me...but I don’t see how that could be possible since I am at the same level, same ER unlock and I have everything maxed out. Hmm

Apparently, someone said you have to hit it dead centre.

It is worth noting that barrage damage is random. So we don’t know how many “fails” the ones attacking you have.

Do you still get only 1 or 2 frags at those higher levels?


I worked my way to Level 16 to get 3 ER's and all I have been seeing is 1/2 frags with respect to stones.


Having a new account to acquire some decent statues that's all I really care about and I'm just not seeing any increase in acquisition as I invest the time to excel in levels.
I know they shouldn't be giving them away in high amounts but there appears to be no progress in the amount of provided stones when there is progress in other areas.


I have basically resorted to taking out one ER and retreating to acquire one/two chests which I see a lot doing at the lower levels.

Is it just me or has the difficulties ramped up over the last few days.

Don’t get me wrong. I can still “win” if I don’t screw up!

But I don’t get that many ERs anymore. And winning on % is a pain. I don’t have IT, it’s not a long wait, but it can take longer than I’d like 🙈 particularly when I use warriors. I need to max my GBE and heal I think for it to be effective properly tho against ER7’s.

I’ve maxed rls on all of my accounts and I’d say they are worth it.

I’ve done both routes on my main loops and my second lil’miss.

Loops went the BH / GBE route.  I’ve started coming up against 7 ER more frequently. And I’m getting the  corner 6 ER base too a lot. I’ve changed mine to see how people take it down but not had a chance to study people yet. Most who make a good hit are using cryos and mine aren’t unlocked soooo....

I was able to max my warriors and smoke , get my heal to 3. My GBE is currently 3 and BH 4


I did find that unlocking BH made a difference, but my offensive strategy needs adapting. And probably a bit quicker than I’d like 🙈


I’m sitting at rank III 9 stars


Lil’Miss ive. Struggled with and I don’t know why. I upgraded to 7ER and had 7win streak before I lost to a guy who used all heavies to take down 2 of my ERs 😂Now I’m at rank III and 3 stars. I’ve only just upgraded today, so I’ll be able to be in a better position to say how beneficial it is tomorrow.  I have maxed med kit and warriors but smoke is lvl 2 so Kavan still gets shot 🤦🏼‍♀️



There are 7ERs which have 1 level from maxed rls which  have stumped me. But I haven’t found a new troop combo that I like. Yet.   Still coming across 6ER.

It’s just a feeling, but I think that more people will be at 7ER in a couple of days time. Buying the last level on the rls will give u a few more days to save up tokens for your unlock of GBE or BH after you have unlocked 7ER.


If I had a choice again I would unlock GBE before BH tho. If u are against 7ER it is with having the extra GBE. It’s the design of the base all pressed up agains the back wall meaning all defences seem to be in range that makes it hard, particularly core rushing with warriors- need that extra critter drop or shock or ice shields etc.

Ok so, I’m coming across far more 7ER bases, almost exclusively now. At lower rank III then it’s possible to come across 6ER bases that are spread around, but nearer rank 4  it’s highly unluckily.

Loops has continued to rise with the 6 ER corner base - I’m at  rank IV 2 stars.  I had. 5 win streak and lost the 6th as I had to retreat. Forgot I was getting off at the next bus stop.

I’m not competent enough to run warrior whilst managing bags  and walking off the bus 😂

I won the next match. But of course it is painfully slow getting ERs.

lil’miss Is going up ...she is now at  rank III and 9 stars. Has a good win streak. Because I have no BH some people are trying to GBE some  buildings and hope that I will try the same 😂

Warriors are much harder with minimum GBE.  Ground flaring and navigating through the buildings- not along the sides makes it harder. Ans the long runs are challenging because Kavan can’t run that fast!

I’d advise 7ER but also to look at you tube vids of warships to look at common strats to see what  you can use with your troops unlocked!

I'm going to finish the upgrade then save for decent upgrades when I grab the 7th engine. Every time I run into maxed rl's I get chewed up lol. Are you just using warriors or hzc against 7 engines? I haven't unlocked either troop yet,warrior or cryoneers.  Still using mix of h/bombs and r/bombs both w k avan. But against 7 engines I'm probably at 30% win w h/bombs, o% when they have max rl's.

I was using warriors.

I’m not getting anywhere with my previous combo of heavies bombardiers and zookas. I haven’t unlocked cryo’s  and, tbh, I’m not likely to do so either before the end of this season.

I have tried all riflemen - Neut said he had tried this- and tbh it does work- but it is essentially sniping ER. With brick BO it is fairly effecitve, but not for all bases. If they have a microwav’r the. Your screwed 😆.

They also tend to take out Defenses rather than ER’s can be both an advantage and disadvantage. Often the latter!

I found flaring the ERs when close had it benefits but I'm not at your lvl

Yeah, I’m  using heavies, zookas and bombardiers and getting creamed going up against bases that have maxed BD and BH. If they have five max’d RL’s, there’s a good chance I won’t even get one ER.  Not sure what else to use. I don’t have warriors upgraded.

I currently have 6ER’s.  I max’d BD immediately after unlocking the 6th ER and was able to climb to L2.  Now I’m waiting on keys to unlock BH. Probably 4 more days.  Only 18 days left in the season though.

I persevered with all riflemen - it’s usually 3 ERs per hit, but I have managed this on a few occasions...

If you have the rls in a row they do serious enough damage without maxing - better off spending the tokens on something else

I previously mentioned I decided to start another account on a Tablet we have at the house.

It sure is nice to play the game on a tablet instead of my phone.


And so I decided to give the Warships a go on the new account figuring the extra resources and especially stones would be nice to help out increasing acquisition.

And now the gripe....


It says in the rewards that they are based on your VP..


So if my VP in the game nets me 5 frags daily for both the daily reward boat and the VP boat would you not think that when I get a chest in Warships it should (when it gives stones) be up to 5 frags for stone rewards?


I would think so but it's continually one frag when it allots a stone as a reward for a chest.


For me this is a killer for next season in Warships participation.  Too each iz own but for me I am in seeking those decent statues to help attack/defend/extra accumulation of resources in whatever means you choose (Green/Purple).


I'm starting to understand why some players are now starting a Warship attack, GBE'ing one EG and then retreating.

The rewards are VP based, but the stone amount is a quarter of the amount displayed in the VP chests.

For example, I at 1000+ VP get 8 shards per chests, but from the Warship chests I get 2 shards per card, up to a max of 4(2 cards giving 2 shards of separate color).

Personally, that's more than enough for me. Consider what else you get that gives you stones. On top of regular raids, you get 3 guaranteed frags from auto-destroying NPCs, you got Dr.T, Megacrab and even Hammermans Imitation can be considered. Even the stone chances can be boosted from Tribes so you don't even need PSC. I certainly don't and I am consistently going up in powders.

Thx for the info Brenz.  Not sure if I saw that information presented anywhere unless it's something undisclosed.

Keep in mind I mentioned a new account. I'm at the 5 frags a day VP range. Gameplay is limited due to the mechanics of where my troops/statues are at so the intake is much much lower than you are comparing with what I suspect is a max or near-max account.  Most of what you are mentioning is either simply not in the cards at my level or very limited in participation.

I agree.. When you don't need it... The game gives it to you in overwhelming numbers without even trying.  I get 14 shards a day on my max account for clicking 6 times on the screen.

Yeah, but if you got the perfect statues right away, it'd undermine the whole journey to HQ 22.

And even if the stone rewards from WS are rather small... Every bit helps, right? You get 3 chests a day which means 3-6 extra frags for you on top of your 5+5 frags from the VP boat and chest. That's quite a significant boost, is it not?

I figured the only way I get to rank III,is warriors.  So I blew 1.2m maxing smoke,flares and warriors)) At least now when I run into 7 engine's w/50% across the board,I can walk away w some engines )). I tried loops strategy w riflemen ,got 1 engine,but that was w sub par smoke/flares.just remembered,i need to upgrade bullet

I haven’t found Bullit great - I’ve got him to lvl 3 lvl4 is 600k and I’m at the point of unlocking extra troop health. I have found brick & BO quite effective. They need to take down as much as they before shocks clear.

I don’t find Kavan & shields as effective as the damage boosts plus DA are too powerful.


I have had a few good warrior attacks, I’ll see if I can upload a good one or two later and show timings for landing with brick. Not sure if that will help someone or not.

Cant do it over mobile data, I’m lucky to get 4G 😂

I'm doing good with 3H2R3B + SW Kavan at Leg I. Pick off one or two protos with starting GBE, then work my way through, shocks, crits, all that.

I hope Season 4 redesigns the Victory calculating algorithm to include "Unit housing survived" as a factor. Might bring TMed attacks to the table. Might make a post about this tomorrow.

Ok so, I’m trying to chose “good” ones where I don’t make noob errors... but that seems impossible! So here’s one where you can play spot the error 🙈


I’ve done it to show the timing of Brick landing on the left side of the base and releasing the warriors. As she runs so much slower it can be tricky- particularly on the long walk. And like a drip I clicked on the wrong rl to show the range 🤦🏽‍♀️.

I always flare the ground with brick, rather than buildings, they spread , so won’t all get taken out in on hit. It takes practice working out the smoke coverage and spread.

I’ll put other ones landing in different areas and other heroes when I can. I prefer brick  tho.






Brez/ brenz I thought you were the same person talking to yourself 😂


Silly me 😂

Bullit & warriors. Hopefully people will find those timings useful !

Landing left side again.

My right side landings are hit and miss unfortunately.  Usually missing the smoke and hitting my defenses 🙈

I find Kavans Second Wind ability one of the more powerful ones in WS, as troop retention plays a big role in pushing through a base. With other heroes, your strike force whittles down as you progress, which in turn slows you down, but with SW you get reinforcements on the fly right where you need them and keep the pace up. Not to mention, the extra 12% damage resistance is a little help too, as is the passive healing.

Atleast, that's what I've seen from looking through my attacks and the attacks opponents do on my bases.

What do others think?
