    Sorry, the sentence was wrong, I meant the word worst is the Dutch word for sausage.

    There is a difference between writing ‘reviews’ and raising ‘concerns’. Even if all our concerns are completely ignored (highly likely), it is still better to raise them now, than to raise them after the update — at which point, it will definitely be too late.

    As for why Battle Bay hasn’t been as popular as games like Angry Birds, I can give you two reasons, nether of which has anything to do with ranked TDM.

    The first is that the subject matter was always unlikely to appeal to a wider audience. Middleaged women are a huge market for games like Candy Crush etc... is Battle Bay likely to appeal to that group? — probably not. There is also no offline play for casuals and commuters. It was always going to be a bit of a niche game.

    Secondly, this game hasn’t been marketed well. I have a friend who works for a local gaming studio (a big name studio). His job for ages was doing QA for one of their games, a mobile game with battleships. He had never heard of Battle Bay, and he’s an industry professional working on a potentially competing game. I’ve never met anyone IRL who has heard of this game.

    As for the devs caring more about the game — they don’t even play it anymore. I’ve got more games on my main account than any of the current devs, and I’m a complete newb compared to many players here. They don’t have the time or manpower to fully gauge what it is like to try to grind through this game. How many devs do you think have a legendary perk on their main boat? — I’ll tell you: it’s zero!

    How many Devs do you think have an Interceptor or a Reaper? — one. @Stebbi is, apparently, the only one who could be bothered to collect enough tokens on his main account.

    If they can’t even be bothered to grind through their own game, why should we? And why should we then believe that they know best?

    I did not know, but I also wondered do they even play their own game after they came up with much of these changes, like the agility update. If they would have played it quite regularly, they would be able to foresee a lot of the problems.

    It is like a guitar builder, who does not play his own guitars.

    He has a point thou, they are stupid. We have seen more than enough to say that.
    Also most people say alot worse things here tbh. And I believe they deserve it, they don't respect players concerns so I don't think they should expect any in return.

    The only thing I request is that they give enforcer an extra red slot point, so that I can actually use weapons like missiles and explosive cannon.

    Well i understand that they should grind themself before passing the numbers.
    But we are talking about update here. HTDM is actually a interesting idea. In current ranked, one mistake and its all over. Like its not really 5v5 mostly because after one-2 guy makes a mistake, they leave skilled player in a uneven match. In tdm its always equal team no. Atleast stupid player acts as a meat shield.
    Doesn't it ever happen to you that u were playing so good but then you found yourself surrounded by multiple enemy because your team died.

    You also get to Play different ships in the same match. And devs confirmed that they will Inc rewards enough to be able to play multiple ships.
    New turbo is a small obstruction.

    I don't see why ranked needs a major change besides matchmaking and finding a way to stop putting 3+ fixers on teams. Should be 2 max. Why couldn't they just make HTDM an event and leave ranked elimination style?
