Warships is the Boom Beach equivalent of the CoC Builder Base. While the game play itself is inherently different, the mechanics are identical. I have played both and that they share the same DNA is obvious.My season says 32 days left so hmmmm.....
I think what is most disheartening is that the BB dev team does not seem to have learned from CoC’ mistakes with the Builder Base. Many of the same problems and liabilities are present.
Probably the biggest problem IMO is game progression. CoC experienced the same thing. PvP like this needs to have have a rapid progression path IMO. The ramp up from 3 stars to 5 stars to level up was a sudden transition. The loss of stars for a defeat is a Boom Beach twist if IRC, and not a good one at that IMO. PvP should be a sprint with people pushing ever higher. No need to knock people back. This leads to the second point.
The chest bug is a huge problem. It has allowed people to build up their warship to a point that they should not be able to achieve at their level. This really kills progression for those who are not farming the chest bug and is a factor in the overall game progression.
The troop training bug is another huge problem for those who do not have endless reserves that affects progression. You can’t progress if you can’t play and you can’t play if you don’t have troops.
Finally making the first season three months long for any reason was a really stupid decision that was made through rose colored glasses IMO. If they do not reset the season once the troop training and chest bugs get fixed they have created an ugly situation. One whereby players who farmed the chest bug cannot be competed with by people who have not farmed the chest bug. Three months is a long time for a brand new feature and if they let this ride, player migration to Warships will probably be affected.
I have not farmed the chest bug. It is no fun losing match after match after match. It is no fun losing to player with 5 Boom Cannons, 3 RLs, 2 SLs, and much more powerful troops. My base gets destroyed in under 30 seconds by the farmers. I can not consistently compete because there is not a level playing field and I have neither the time or will to sit and exploit the chest bug so that I can compete consistently.
A game is supposed to be fun. This dev team never ceases to amaze me with their ability to take what is supposed to be fun and challenging and instead make it frustrating and redundant.
I am not going to play warships anymore until there is a season reset. Be it three months or sooner. What is the point?
