Now here's an idea that seems too good to be true, to have multiple war gaming games to cross over, now I'm sure if we get enough support behind this idea, the creators will consider. Adding the following idea will benefit everyone, as there will be more players wanting to join matches, leading to shorter join times, and more people means that war gaming will be considered an even bigger success than it currently is. The idea follows, aircraft of world of warships at the moment is pretty average, and there is such a historical significance of huge air-sea battles, so by including aircraft more fully, we can pay homage to history. 

 

By adding this element to the game, more players will be envolved, which will decrease joining times and it will open new lines for aircraft, creating a new element of game play. Such lines could include; dive bombers and torpedo bombers. Now, we could also utilise the facilities provided by warships, by enabling players of war planes to land on carriers to reload secondary ordnance such as bombs and torpedoes, this would make the aircraft carriers a top priority and alter the gameplay for the better. I hope the creators get to see this idea, and everyone gets behind it and we can see an awesome cross over!

It's his first post and he has under 500 games played, Lost.  He's brand new around here and doesn't have the benefit of our experience over the life of the game.

 

OP:  A good amount of support has been behind a number of good ideas.  That's no guarantee that it comes to pass.

I mentioned this idea long ago and got shot down. :D

 

But it is still a good idea. Warplanes exist in WoWS anyway. Why not have real human pilots flying them and bombing ships?

This was discussed before WoWS was in alpha. It was also mentioned with WoT.

 

Answer has always been no due to game balance issues.  Additionally, landing is right out, either in planes or in a mixed game.

​They already have something like that. It is called War Thunder.

It would be a blast to take an il-20 into a game and i'd go around stripping the guns off all the cruisers. Oh the forum would be fun !

 

 

what they said above, but good idea. there was some talk of a cross platform CW (map only) but all talk of that really petered out a little past release.

Yes but that would force the fighters on the other team to protect their ships, go low, and kill the IL-20. Then the pilots on the 20's team would have to go low and protect their GAA.

 

See? That's a good thing. Can you imagine someone suggesting a fighter protect a GA today? Ridiculous.

 

Today in WoWP we have 3 different games going on in each battle. GAs attack GTs and (sometimes) other GAs. LFs and MRs are in a furball turnfight above. And, high in the stratosphere, HFs go up and down and up and down like yo-yos killing each other and killing stalling bots.

 

What if they all had to interact before the end of the battle? What if the HFs actually cared (were forced to care) what the GAs were doing?

 

It would be a much better game, but not for stat-padders.

 

EDIT: Can you imagine in a WWII engagement if the HFs and LFs ignored their bombers or ground attack?

          "Sir, our ground attack aircraft are getting destroyed! We need help down here!"

          "Sure, just as soon as I kill a few more fighters!"

In the developer's diaries (number three I think) they stated that they were looking at a mode called Escort where your side were escorting AI bombers and the other side was tasked with attacking them and your side was tasked with defending the formation. Wonder what happened to that.

His first post and I don't think he has been lurking either. Lost is getting bitter, hell we are all getting bitter with the complete mishandling of this game.

This was placed in the locked room with Soon over the door with any form of end game.

Works out? They've already designed the first map for all three modes to co-exist! I've already played on it. It's even done to scale. It's a big harbor, and boats/plane/tanks can all interact with each other, and you'll be able to spawn in any of them.

I hate mouse flying and setting up a joystick in WT is an exercise in frustration. This is odd considering you must use one in Simulation mode.

That is going to be a gigantic balancing nightmare and Gaijin has a history of not getting the balance at all close with lots of flavor of the month.

Great idea that has been tossed around from the days we first heard of WoWS, but sadly to say this game is not ready to be combined doing so would probably add to the already existing problems that plague  this game that could be a great game.

This escort thing they have decided to go with in WOT with armoured cars and you have to protect a Mk I tank against the other team. Sounds like all the ideas for this game they have decided to use elsewhere and this is a single mode game with no plans for anything now Victor has done everything short of signing the death certificate. Oh well if that is the case, then I am just going to play and try my best.

sneaking posts in between tasks is a bad idea. When i get bored with warframes,  ill give that a try.
