  1. It may be a little less suicidal if they are playing against ships closer to their own tier instead of rushing head first into fully vetted 120 BB. 40 to 50% of the ships in one battle should never belong to just one ship class. This should never ever happen. At least with a tier system a captains skills become relevant again.
  2. The tier system I'm talking about would help with all this. If you are in a competitive battle with a Chance of earning more than one crew point the game becomes more fun and the grind less of an ordeal. It would sure beat going out in your new ship getting killed in the first 2 minutes and then having to watch the other 8 minutes in the hopes of getting 15 crew points instead of 1.
  3. I don't think I'm the only one getting tired of seeing 4 or 5 submarines in each game. Or 1 zero star LVL 50 BB against two LVL 120 BB. I am playing way too many games these days that end up 1v7, 1v8,1v9. A tier system (which was talked about at one time) would solve many problems. First of all none of what I mentioned above would ever happen and that in itself would be a dramatic Improvement to the game. As well lower level captains will have evenly match battles to play in. This will make their games competitive and therefore more fun. It will definitely take the sting out of grinding when you're not playing for 1 Crew point-per-game. I I think this should be the "Next Step". No more RAID Mode, no more fireworks, let's focus on what the game is supposed to be about. A fair competitive battle that is fun to play.
  4. Haven't bought any of the starter packs but I'll buy into your story. After playing against fully vetted Andrea dorias I think her guns are amazing but still only takes three or four shots to kill. Needs another armor upgrade I think? I Just remembered that this is a level 1 battleship. You can take it into expert online so maybe they don't want it too strong.
  5. Okay so you found the Forum. Now you must send your explanation of what happened along with the screenshot to Vinsson here in his pm. Ibby will have already done so as is required by moderators. Vinsson can then review the case and decide what if any action is to be taken. I must say you have sorely hurt your cause buy cluttering up west Chat for half an hour and inconveniencing other players. I will also add that calling out a mod does not and will not ever fly with me. I know you haven't been with navy Field Long but these are friends that we have sailed with and have taken the role of moderator on a volunteer basis. They are trying to do something to make the community better. Are you?
  6. It was brought to my attention today by 3 different captains when they went to use the ignore button it did not work. I know this was reported to you sometime earlier and it seems there is a need for it (the button). Could you please fix this soon.
  7. I believe naugahyde...(wow that's an actual word the voice thingy spelt it on its own) has explained his position clearly. I'm not going to address the favoritism issue (if there was one)as that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. However I do believe moderators not being in fleets would bring a quick resolution to the issue. I don't think a private chat is going to do anything to help the situation in fact it's just going to be one more button to push and get in the way. Probably be as helpful as fireworks.
  8. OMG.... If you are close to finishing a nation then start another one. This gives you the opportunity to try new setups with new ships and begin the mundane task of leveling up your ships all over again. You're all talking about crew points and gold like they grow on trees. If you want to play to pay certainly go right ahead. There are people in this game who can't and everything mentioned above only hurts them. If you are close to finishing your nation and are having a hard time "keeping going" then just start another one as I said. Try playing it for free. I gsurentee the game will Keep On going, and going, and going, and going..........
  9. Getting chat banned for calling another player a moron is ridiculous. Makes me think that some of the mods are"intellectually challenged". I would rather consider this a case of merely holding the reins too tight. Terra-form-uranus is not an offensive name. Terra-form-ur-anus is an offensive name. It depends on every player's perception of how you read it and I choose to believe it to be a clever play on words. (Non-offensive). Everyone has bad days and poor decisions will be made. This is a game of battle not a game of bridge and I don't consider "moron" to be inappropriate in a verbal Joust. Everyone talks smack it's just part of the game. Although moderators are not infallible they are however accountable. They must make a report of every chat ban they perform. If you have an issue with any of the moderators decisions you can simply forward your complaint to Vinsson here in the Forum or send an email directly to naiadgames@gmail.com
  10. chat

    NF5 chat banned one of the Indonesian players last night for using a bad word. Fortunately it was brought to his attention by another Indonesian player the real meaning of the word he used. Google translate made an error. NF5 quickly righted the wrong and the ban was lifted. You can't trust Google all the time.
  11. masochistic: to enjoy something that seems painful or tedious. The following are a few things that I think need a serious looking into. 1) vetting My Level 50 battleship has taken forever mostly because I have to make myself do it and can only manage to do that for short periods of time. It's so mind-numbingly boring. How many times must you get sunk and earn 2 crew points a game. How many games do you have to play at this rate. This includes watching till the end of the game and hoping your team wins. I see absolutely no reason why there has to be 2 thousand points between 2 Star and 3 star. And then a 5 hour waiting period for each third star sailor. Why can't Sailors be available immediately upon the completion of the required points. 2) as I mentioned watching till the end of the game in the hopes of gaining the full 15 crew points I'll slide this in now. Endgame scenarios that need a serious look at..... SS vsCV: the submarine can't leave the capture Zone and the carrier will not enter it. All that happens is a bunch of failed attempts by the carrier to sink the submarine and the game usually ends up going to the final timer and a winner being declared. This can take four or five minutes. Imagine playing your 0 * battleship, of course getting sunk right away and then having to watch all that for two points. Texas vs just about anything Anyone in my fleet will tell you how I feel about Texas and any Texas class ships From Any Nation. They got to go they are completely useless and are only consistently used by skateboarders I'm sure. It's too fast and small for anyone to anyone to hit and again the game usually ends up going the full length of the timer with the winner being declared. If I find myself one on one with a Texas and 4 minutes on the timer I just blow myself up I refuse to waste the time for possibly another two points. 3) bonus crates/certificates Why there are still certificates in Navy field I'll never know. An ill-conceived plan that I thought the community made clear they did not want. When I get a " bonus crate" with three of those crew certificate thingies that you're supposed to use to upgrade your Sailors with (costing ridiculous amounts of gold) I sometimes wish I had just gotten the two points. They say you can play Navy field for free and acquire All Ships up to and including level 120 BB. I believe this to be true and look forward to celebrating my Russian 120 BB with my grandchildren (I'm 23, single, no kids). Sadly I know captains who don't share my enthusiasm and have given up on ever "rubbing shoulders" with other 120 BB captains. The Grind and the high cost in a game that gives little Rewards has made the Holy Grail unattainable. I really want to hear if you guys agree or disagree with me. I'm sorry I only present to you these problems but I know I can count on you all for Solutions. On the bright side we got fireworks!
  12. I agree with everything you said. Especially the part about how long it takes to level up. I am currently vetting My Level 50 Battleship gangut and I can tell you without the crew and Captain boost bonus given to us I would only be halfway to where I am now. I've been out this ship for a week and it's still not done. I can imagine how the newer players feel.
  13. hahaha saint... Give you the thumbs up for your candor and honesty! When a player enters the fleet he is automatically given the status of ensign. This is to let you know that he just joined the fleet. After about a week the M Sim status is removed and the player has no discernible rank. At this point I usually wait about a month to see if the player is going to work out and stay in the game. If they have been with me for a month I give them officer status. Yes it seems that the officer rank is only for Prestige but a little Prestige can go a long ways in helping a captain feel good about himself. 😊
  14. I would still like to see away we can take repairs and smokes off of one ship and put them on another. These all cost gold and gold equals real money. It really bothers me when I see a ship rusting away with smoke and repairs on it that I could use on another ship.
  15. I can't see myself having this problem in the near future.HAHAHAHA!! I do however think that only players that go to wof should share in the reward. It doesn't matter if you've played in one or Twenty, you get a piece of the gold.
