    The people in charge clearly they do not know their own product that much is clear in the way they are running things. They took what was one of the best mobile app simulations and are slowly turning it into drivel. All the depth of the logistics and combat mechanics are being lost to satisfy a bunch of munchkins that dont even understand what they want let alone what they are asking for. Its a very sad day for WW when all maps are made to be speed maps

    They changed all maps to speed maps effectively breaken all the maps. Why cant you (the devs) understand that you cannot change only one factor in a complex simulation without breaking the game?!? Its very simple if you change the speed of units then you need to adjust the economy accordingly, as how long it takes to train unit, upgrade units, produce armaments and alot of other factors. Most importantly you must adjust the combat resolution which is very broken in speep maps. So please undo this ill advised change and put things back the way they were.

    Again at no point I said do not use M40s; I said do not SPAM m40s! M40s are and can be PART of a balanced army; however they should NOT be the entire army. Furthermore if you do not know how deafeat M40 spam without resorting to M40 spam regardless of the skill of the opponent you are facing then you are doing it wrong. So before you criticize and say it cannot be done try Combined Arms it works. We have done it many times against very experienced players and it works just fine.

    First off go take a cold shower and calm down there is no reason for profanity, at worst agree to disagree. If you can't have a discussion without insulting people thats proof of immaturity and potentially you are deliberately being a troll. Whatever the case may be I dont have the time nor the inclination to deal with you. The majority of the people here say there is no problem with how the heal tactic works and the real issue is the alts people are abusing. Having said that asking Joycrafter to police alts is a huge commitment of time and effort while potentially hurting their revenue stream. I dont see them agreeing to this, so alts are unfortunately here to stay.

    Binding accounts to devices does NOTHING to solve the issue as everybody and his dog these days has at a minimum of a smartphone and some sort of a tablette device. Not to mention all the PC emulators available where you can have as many alt accouts as you like run on as many instances as you want simultaneously.

    You are of course entitled to your opinion, you want to keep doing M40 spam be my guest, but do not try to sell it to me or to anyone else for that matter as the end all, be all tactic there is. By the way in case you have not noticed the meta is slowly moving away from M40 spam just like it moved away from bomber spam. People are slowly starting to realize how easy it is to defeat M40 spam. So enjoy whatever time is left with this very uninteresting, unimaginative, boring tactic. Cheers

    Haha on the contrary I love it when people spam units at me as its so easy to defeat once you understand combat mechanics and use a balanced force. Go ahead and spam M40s till your blue in the face I will beat you everytime. What I hate is when people claim this unit or this tactic needs to be nurfed just because they do not understand WW fundementals. Combat system works fine as is.

    Please tell me where in ANY of my posts have you seen me propose a single unit spam to counter M40 spam? How does "Combined Arms" translate into your head to single unit spam? M40 spam cannot be countered effectively by a single unit spammed at it. To effectively counter any type of spamming be it M40 spam or the good old bomber spam it requires Combined Arms. Let me then explain what that means as clearly you are having trouble with it. Combined Arms requires several different units working together as one. There are currently 40 different units in WW all with their unique stats that you can use in various combinations to form a formidable army that can crush ANY type of single unit spam thrown at it. The most popular units at the moment are M40s, Whirbles, Jets and Strats. That makes up of approximately 80% of the units we see on any given BF and accounts for 10% of the existing units in WW. Granted that it is your prerogative to only use a handful of units instead of trying to find synergies between different units and using a combined arms approach. It is far easier to spam M40s instead of creating a balanced army. However that does not mean that spamming M40s is the better option just because it is easier. If you are having trouble countering M40 spam with M40 spam thats hardly surprising. It doesn't mean however that the game is broken and needs to nurf units just because you are not inclined to try something that is more difficult than spamming M40s. Combined arms works if you bother to try it.

    Yet another horrible idea, how about you take the time to read the proposed solution only 2 posts above yours before spamming us with horrible ideas. M40 spam is very easy to counter with combined arms.

    Good on you mate you are on the right track

    What you are describing is the M40 spam tactic, but before deciding that its unbeatable and that M40s need to be nurfed or production limited to x amount per person, you must first ask yourself why is it so popular? Well its popular because its so esy to do, fairly inexpensive lvl2 lc and you can crank them out. Also the unit itslef has AoE damage makes it really easy to kill groups of units simply fire and forget no micro management is necessary. So the answer to why people spam them is cheap, easy to do and convenient. Next question you need to ask yourslef is this the best available tactic or can it easily be countered by someone that understands combat mechanics and uses a more balanced army containing alot of different units that have a great synergy. So pleae before you decide that something is overpowered and needs to be nurfed take the time to think it through, see if there are alternatives that perhaps you have not considered up to now. I'll give you a hint: If your opponents are spamming units they are doing it wrong and you can easily crush them with combined arms approcach. Cheap, easy and convenient is not a war strategy its a shortcake recipe Read here this guy is on the right track: http://www.worldwarfare.com/topic/1688-the-best-armada-for-all-situations/

    Questionnaire on Tactic "Life-Saving"

    Oh and just to be clear because I believe I may have been misleading I think self healing tactic works fine the way it is, I do not think anything more is required as heal spam tactic does not work against people that understand the game mechanics and fully take advantage of combined arms. What I proposed above is an alternative that could actually fix the complaint. Personally I do not believe the complaint needs to be addressed, just learn the game mechanics and fully take advantage of combined arms.

    Questionnaire on Tactic "Life-Saving"

    Once again instead of taking the time to properly analyze what it is people are complaining about, to really understand the issues behind what is being vocalized we have already decided on a probable course of action that will do NOTHING to solve the real issue. I think its important that we take them time to really break it down to understand the problem and find a proper solution. Complaint: People are saying Self healing is OP Analysis: Why are people saying Self healing is OP? Because between nearly equal forces facing off on the battlefield and equal knowledge of the game mechanics by the players, combat victory or defeat is determined by which side has more heals. This is the tactic also known as heal spam. This is one of the main reasons why there are SOOOOOOOOOO many alts leagues and alt accounts in the community, to ensure a virtually unlimited supply of heals to the Main leagues and players. Proposed solutions: There are basically two proposed solutions to discuss as the 3rd is the combination of two and none of them are adequate. 1. Nurf the heal tactic from 30% hp restoration to x<30%: This solution does NOTHING to resolve the main problem of heal spam no matter to what x% you lower the hp restoration. People will simply create more alt accounts to compensate. 2. Restrict the pool from which the heal spammers can draw heals from: This solution on paper seems better than the first one but its just as ineffective at dealing with the real issue. People will simply ensure that 75%-80% of the accounts in a BF have the heal tactic. As I said earlier all that does is restrict how many heals each league has to draw on it does NOTHING to stop the heal spam. It does NOTHING to address alt accounts as people will simply bring them into the same league as their main account instead of leaving them in the alt league. More importantly battles will still be decided by how many heals you have on hand mainly how many active members and active alt accounts you have on hand, during the time of the battle, compared to the guy you are fighting. There is no strategy involved in this lest we forget this is a strategy simulation. What can be a REAL solution to alleviate the heal spam tactic keep in mind I am not a programmer I don't know how hard or easy this is to implement that is why I offer three possibilities. I guarantee any one of them or more combined together will solve the heal spam phenomenon once and for all. 1. In a given time period say 1 hour decrease the effectiveness of every successive heal dropped; so first heal 30% hp restoration, 2nd heal 10% hp restoration, 3rd heal 2% hp restoration and so on till the value is 0 2. Instead of 30% hp restoration of the unit's total HP make it 30% hp restoration of the unit's remaining HP 3. Instead of 30% hp restoration for all units in a 200 range radius, make it the 30% hp restoration total spread out according to how may units are in the 200 range radius; meaning 10 units getting healed only get 3% hp restoration. Voila no more heal spam, goodness gracious maybe people will actually have to use some gray matter instead of trying to SPAM things like tactics and units.

    Shield Cooldown

    The real irony is that the devs are pandering to a few very vocal crybabies that threw a tantrum when the shield cooldown was reintroduced; hurting not only their profit margins, but worst hurting the community, as explained in this post. As if its not bad enough having to contend with the regular bugs such as lag, game crashes, ghosting, etc... we must also put up with broken game mechanics forced on us to satisfy crybabies that have no business playing wargames! If you need shields to defend youself with perhaps farmville is better suited to your skillset.
