Can someone give me Replays that show issues with fighting or income generation as a result of this change?

The players and bots will be spawning across from each other, so this shouldn't alter much outside of flankers taking ranged shots into the center.


Flanking bots should be less likely to try and path to the center if they are closer to outer paths instead.

I need information showing an issue before I can escalate these concerns.

DevTime requires things that can be locked down as issues. I need hard information for that so Replays are requested.

This change was announced nearly a month ago (https://worldofwarships.com/en/news/general-news/bulletin-01111/) and was tested through two rounds on the PTS.

The outcry in this thread is from several players while we have thousands of players logging in each day. I'm listening to the concern that's being voiced, but this voice is not resounding from everywhere.

When concerns like this come up, I have to ask the players directly what the issue is. Then I need something to show internally the represents that direct concern, which is why I asked for Replays. If I get enough Replays with an identifiable pattern, then I can make a case for why a section of our players are frustrated and to see if it's something we can address.

We had two rounds of PTS testing. As for Live Server Data, that comes from Live Server and generally takes a few weeks to stabilize as people acclimate to new changes and alter player behavior as a result. Expecting immediate changes after a few days is not realistic.

I am actively participating in this thread because I watch out for issues that Co-Op players bring up.

I'm not asking for Replays so that WarGaming can get data from them. We have mountains of data that accumulates through people playing the game.

I need the Replays so I, personally, can understand the direct issue that's being voiced here.

Relaying that people don't like X doesn't get it fixed, it only lets us know that there are people that dislike something. If I have a solid grasp of exactly what is going wrong, or is being perceived as wrong, then I can make a case for why action is needed.

Think of it like providing evidence to a lawyer so that they can go to trial on your behalf. If the lawyer doesn't have direct evidence to show, than that's a problem. Further, if the lawyer is moderately familiar with the issue but can't go into specifics then nothing moves anywhere. While yes, I could request data pulls and receive information that I can use, that becomes available in around 2-3+ months from now as it both takes time for current data to accumulate and even more time to put in a request and wait for the information to arrive.

Can you give me approximations on what you've observed? 10% less? 20% less?

The more info I can get, the better.
