There was a game developers conference in San Francisco, CA this past week. Thats ironic, didn't WG have an office there? :trollface:

 

Found some news bits from Venturebeat.com here and from Hardcoregamer.com here. Here is a short quote from the article.

 

Block Quote

 Of course, now that means it’s time to get World of Warships into ship-shape next. Fortunately, Kislyi said, the teams at Wargaming will be able to share what they’ve learned.

 

Nothing is mentioned at all for WoWP's future. The man really carries a grudge in hating WoWP. Hopefully, this WG transformation in the future will translate towards WoWP too. We shall see how this bears out for this WG product.

They didn't mentioned for WOWP's future, because they don't give a damn bout WOWP.

Even devs are taking care of it, It seems Headquarters on russia don't care bout warplanes.

 

Revamp wargaming are probably

  • Selling more OP [Censored], tanks and ships.  no planes
  • Neglect the WOWP as always.
  • focusing on WOWS only
  • More fake tanks, and awful idea from china server
  • and having votes from Russia region only

 

Wait...

I also saw an article about how WG purchased Armored Warfare to develop WOT into current model Tonks.

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Good to know he hasn't changed his stance on WOWP since 3 years ago. By that I mean avoiding every chance he can talking about it and the dev team. But he sure is damn chatty about WOT and WOWS though! All this hype for a new graphics engine when all the AAA titles have jumped that bandwagon with frostbite a long time ago. Just occured to me this game still runs under Big World which interestingly enough he considers as a "dead" engine... :facepalm:

 

The more I read about this guy the more disappointed I am with this title & this company. The Questions in this articles explains alot why WOWP is treated the way it is.

“Is there going to be a big marketing push in the US for 1.0?

You know what? I’ve been doing these interviews for those seven hundred updates, and sometimes, truth be told, there’s not big juicy news. This thing like hot-buns will sell itself. Of course, we know how to do marketing, we know how to do PR, so, yes, it’s a very good reason if we have this kind of update. We have specially trained people looking at the numbers in a disciplined manner. Looking at numbers, the updates effectiveness and still there’s no reason to burn money.”

Yup, that's a pretty number alright. Nice handwritting. Maybe add a little curved tail next time. So... what do we do now? :bajan:

Ahhh yes here he is again... V.K. seems to be doing this about every 1 1/2 to 2 yrs now l think this is at least the 3rd time he has come out with one of these kinds of statements.

Last one was around the WOT Rubicon fiasco time... iirc.

l don't see this as a good sign.

 

All of this is just my humble opinion of course...

 

A couple of guys...relatively... small timers lucked out with a ported game if l understood it correctly which turned into a raging success in their country and then was quickly started up in various world regions. 

Almost overnite they were making huge dough to the tune of 500 M a yr off of that game alone. Soon in quick succession 2 more like themed games were added and some others of different genres.

In a few short yrs it went from a basement show to over 5 k employees and worldwide offices so was it just too overwhelming.. imo probably... the company suffered thru it and especially the gamers who bought into these "free to play" games.

 

But the hitch seems to be these guys soon become 1 guy and he had arguably questionable business sense.

lmo he was WAY out of his depth with the rapid developments of HIS company/games and they seriously lacked a cohesive vision or plan or especially leadership that made sense for going fwd.

 

Success in spite of best efforts to the contrary, questionable hires, questionable personnel appointments, stalled development, failed development, numerous office upheavals, severe issues with reading the game audience (or gawd forbid listening to their stakeholders), etc. we could go on a while.

 

Thru it all there appears to be a theme of holding onto control and not hiring real good people to run the company and just letting them go ahead and do what their hired to do.

 

Things get started then dropped or stopped, or revamped, critical game issues linger on n on, time is wasted and the famous "SOON" becomes the company moto.

 

How else can l rationalize the several yrs since and yes l have gone thru all 3 of the trilogy pillars of this company.

 

GAWD l'm a bear for punishment ..sigh. l suspect l'm not alone however :hiding:
