Ok I’ll admit to being a burned out old fart and my Whirlwind account hasn’t even tried it. Just lack of interest...

My other account (Funnel Cloud) got caught up in the hype for an hour or so on the first day, just playing while awaiting spawns. It got to level 3 before sort of losing interest. It is entertaining but I’m not wanting to spend more time with the game. I’m just looking for mega crab so I can start my cloudburst vp push as my final journey.

I haven't purchased Instant Training, now that the free diamond reload bug has been closed, Warships is much less interesting.
One thing I really like about regular island play, is that I can run through a bunch of bases without needing to wait for reload. Especially when I'm boosted for Op hits, can easily AZ clear map in an hour or so. Lose a few troops, but since they are spread out among 8 boats, they are usually quickly refilled. Even reloading after a total wipeout is just 52 minutes.

On Warships, the Troop Reserves only does 1 troop at a time. So waiting 52 minutes will only get you enough Zooks for 1 boat. Clearly this is an attempt by Supercell to force more people to buy Instant Training.

I doubt I will play Warships very much after the first few easy days.

I don't really know what to think about it.  I never thought that BB was worth playing, you attack once, loose some troops, train new troops close the game and return at another time but I kept it alive and my island is maxed now.  One advantage with the War ship is that you can attack a couple of times before running out of troops, most of the time it is the fastest that wins because it ends in a tie.
I just how fun it will be in a month when they clear the ship and everyone starts from scratch, how many times is that fun???
I doubt I will be hanging around to see

You all know I'm not usually the Debbie Downer type but I have to say the future of a lot of maxed players was hinging on this update. The fact that its been riddled with bugs is going to be the end for many of them. I hope they get them all straightened out very soon or the future of this game may look bleak. Bugs aside I feel once the shine wears off this new feature its going to become another boring grind. Maybe tf vs tf will be more fun collectively but who knows when that will arrive. IDK...just my thought and I hope I'm wrong. Prove me wrong SC!!

I am still having mixed reactions.

I started getting trying to get into the Builder base on clash after losing interest in the game. I hadn’t played it for months. I just found it depressing.

Boom has made some improvements. Upgrades are instant... when you eventually win that is.  I like the decision tree. However, this review takes into account the problems - my two maxed accounts suffered from the 414 bug and couldn’t progress.

My two mini ones I could still play.

On my smallest account- she isn’t able to get a 4th engine room. She is essentially stuck at the lowest level. It’s “too” easy to get to Level 11 and get stuck.  That is not to say that I think it should be harder to get there - we need the upgrades!  But with people moving up and down at such an early point in the game.... it means that my smallest account will only get so much “joy” from the game. The rewards aren’t great and limiting the chest to 3 times a day with random rewards feels a little unfair if I can’t progress through the ranks and get more resources. Maybe at the end of the season others may have moved up and I can progress further.... but people play for a variety of reasons. Some will just clog up the system as they aren’t avid players. This is problematic for people who have just unlocked Warships when moving to Hq10.

The most bitterly disappointing thing is that at the earlier stages it is down to he who can artillery fastest. That has to be changed for the next season.

I feel I made more progression with my 3rd account (just turned HQ17) as I played this first virtually from the time the update was available... and that it wasn’t bugged with the 414 training times.  Unfortunately I  had a meeting so couldn’t play during the earliest hour. But this just reinforces my view that those who get a head start get an advantage - I’m not taking into account cheating.

I do another post later with other thoughts

Ok so I’ve given it some time and wanted this to so much be the great update we all wanted but it simply isn’t, warships is ‘meh’ at best, no instruction in game on how it works (or maybe I missed that) took me till rank 3 to realise I could upgrade my troops/gb/ etc ... tried to give it a fair shot but nah, think it’s finally time to remove boom beach from my device, sad to say goodbye to a game I truly loved to play but warships isn’t the answer ... it feels stale already and it’s only been a few days ... good luck and I wish you all the best for the future

Well I was really bored with this game past few months (more like a year) but I still played a little because my tf and it was my favorite game 1st thing in the morning last thing at night. I've been patiently waiting on this update ( not complaining ). Just waiting and waiting and waiting. Then it comes, yea.  NO ,NO,NO it’s whatever with the warship I personally don’t care for it . My problem is it’s been a year. Everyone has been waiting on this big update. Warships has nothing to do with Boom Beach , it’s like playing a couple hands of poker when your really bored . Why not do something to the “real game “ SO many options new troops,hero’s, bigger map (always been my#1 idea )and the list goes on . I don’t understand how anyone thought this was a good ideal I really don’t .Ive been getting on maybe once: /twice a day past year. Hitting the ops , click clickin (destroy) my treasure box , throwing some barrage at Dr T first couple lvs . Still doing that since the update I’ve played warships and it’s fine. But to me seems like a totally different game. It doesn’t keep my interest at all. I have to say this is reallly disappointing  and was not a smart idea , I can’t stress that enough sorry to whoever but.come on .I see people complaining all the time ,”BB sucks . BB is dead, I’m deleting my account blah blah. , I’ve never said that but this is a pitiful update I think it almost made the game worse. I don’t even know what to say. Just dumbfounded on this whole warships idea. I do have 2 accounts with instant training  [email protected]$9.99 a month ( can’t stand troop training time) now that was a great idea. Awesome .so even on warships I don’t have to wait . Kept/keep paying for it waiting on this update.hoping for something good. Nope and I’m not being rude  but now I definitely see no point in keeping them , for my once a day attack’s it’s come to the point when I’m about ready to get on I’m like ugh rolling my eyes don’t really want to play it.  ( like I said only reasons I do was hope for this update and my tf.  Smh

Interesting opinions on Warships, very split, some love it, some hate it.

As I have said before release, Warships has involved extensive recording of the base game. RickC has said this will provide the foundation to improve the game in ways beyond Warships, that the original code could not do. Things like better task force searches, tf vs tf and many other things. This is what I am most excited about.

Warships will get better and is not for everyone but the future...

Years ago, when we were clamoring for TF vs TF, PvP, and all these new game mechanics; I wrote that no new game features would be revolutionary to the game only evolutionary because at its core, anything new would be built around the same core gameplay: dropping our troops on a landing zone and doing what little we can to guide and protect them as the game moves our troops for us.

That some are disappointed or unimpressed is no surprise.  No matter what spin they put on it.  Regardless of how the dev team may try to package it differently, for those who have played the game for a while it inevitably will end up being underwhelming once the shine wears off of the new bauble.  We eventually look at it and say: “there is really nothing new here”.  It is different, but not new or innovative.  That it is a stone cold rip off of the CoC Builder Base really puts the exclamation point on the lack of innovation.  It was A LOT of work, yes.  But there was no innovation in Warships.  It is iterative at best.

I will predict that the release of TF vs TF will face the same reception.

I do not think that releases like Warships are about the existing player base.  It is for a new cadre of players.  They are even going to do some advertising according to Rick.  I think Warships is a great addition for new players.

I totally agree with you CaptNasty 🙂

Existing players are not in of themselves Boom Beaches future. Most of us (not me yet) have been there done that. We are too much work. The future of boom beach is in new players. That is not to say existing experienced players are not important but we are guides for the future of the game. Whether boom beach is in our futures is up to the individual but I am confident in Boom beach’s future.

I have seen a couple of YouTube adverts for Warships 👍

After checking this mode out I have come to the conclusion I dislike it.

I become bored quick on it as it's upgrade process is too easy and faster than I would think it should be.

Enjoy if you like it.

My only fear now is what does the future have for this product in terms of updates.. Is it going to be focuses on just warships. I guess time will tell because they could very well loose players by neglecting the core game and focusing on this expansion but they can do what they like.

@Brez, suspect the future of updates probably looks a lot like the introduction of heroes: release it, stabilize it, expand it, move on to a new big feature.

Thoughts on WS
Not bad, the beginning was pretty easy and keeping a base at 3 engines was good up to about lvl 14. At this low lvl it is just a speed kill race, everyone can do it, but your base layout can effect their speed. Pretty straight forward, strengthen base and kill fast, flare the last core and toss some Med Kits and don't forget to bomb the first distance base til its dead. HZ or W seems to dominate.

4 engines were still a speed thing. Much like 3 engines, but flares become a little more useful. Still HZ with M or W that dominates. Everything else is too slow.

5 engines was definitely a slow change over from speed to survival. Speed is still useful, but it aint worth squat if you cannot finish all 5 engines. Not everyone can finish any more, so you can win through survival. Burns through troops fast at this lvl, seems most of my troops are gone when I finish - win or lose. Warriors don't fair very well here. Grens are just starting if upgraded, but still HZM with maybe a S or C. Get all the engines and you usually win.

6 engines (I don't have) survival is the key. Most cannot take all 6 out, so percentage of defences destroyed really comes into play. Grens start to be more viable for surviving and % destroyed. Others will know better than I what works. I have seen CZRM and CZHM take entire bases down, but I have seen them die too.

Not bad, but I can see the repetitiveness in the expansion. So far I like it. Nice if the bugs were fixed.

Its almost like Warships condenses the whole 2 year progression on the regular island play into a short season. Doubly so with this season with all the chest bugs allowing some players to advance faster than designed.
