Or maybe it’s just a wishful thinking, but I got a surprising e-mail from Wargaming that made me laugh. Not with them, at them.
It really feels like Wargaming becomes desperate after collapse of their Community Contributors program in Summer 2021, after which a lot of prominent streamers reduced the number of WOWS videos on their channels or moved to another titles. Now WG is sending bizarre e-mails to inactive users, like me, who got tired of their constant introduction of more and more broken mechanics into World of Warships.
Commander! Submarines and superships have been added to the game! To prepare for these new battle factors, Warships HQ is authorizing you to reset Commander skills and demount upgrades free of charge. Take advantage of this opportunity, and good luck in battle!
Yup, Wargaming felt obligated to inform me, someone who never spent much money in their game and left it more than a year ago, that there are submarines! And superships! I guess, they ran out of whales to milk and now they scrap bottom of barrel, hoping to bring back even casual players, like me.
What can I say? Wargaming, I’m flattered that you remember me when you are desperate, but I know there are submarines in your game. That’s why I left last year...
Post-apocalyptic survival for dummies
After long, long time in development submarines are finally coming to World of Warships. Well, sort of coming. And the gamers are sort of excited about it.
Recent developments in several titles made me think that gamers are truly weird, weird creatures that should be studied by science, because it’s not how human kind should work. Or is it?
Wargaming.net, a company behind World of Tanks and World of Warships (also World of Warplanes, but realistically who cares?) is apparently leaving Russia and Belarus.
Yes, you could assume that after recent events Wargaming, company behind World of Tanks and World of Warships, would be more careful, but if you assumed that you clearly do not know this company for very long.
To finish this miserable year on more positive note single player online manager Santa Monica FC Online prepared a small Xmas present.
With each month you can notice two things on Steam that look coincidental, but really are not - there are hundreds of new titles popping up on the lists and the prices are going up, especially for early access games. In normal circumstances more supply means lower prices, but not in case of early access.
Stalker 2, game under development in Ukrainian studio GSC Game World, again hits the news, and again not for particularly good reason.
I recently read an article pointing out how Google and Facebook killed browser games, but while author made some valid points, he missed on few key elements.
