  • balance problem returning player, new account

I used to play on NF EU server Hood and after many years I returned to the game. With current 'low level exp boost' I have my first crew up to BB level in a matter of less than 2 weeks.

The big problem is that because the normal crew and expert growth is not proportional, I am left with unsable crew: accuracy (even with +12 growth) is HORRIBLE and reload even worse. I know it will take time to gain more experts (and convert them to vets) to get better results, but current situation is practically impossible. I have already outgrown Blitz and now am stuck in Emden and Moltke to support with AA... :(

A second big problem is credits. Because crew grows a LOT faster so constantly new ships are needed, I can't even buy my first CV for my CV crew. And yes those are also lacking crew and experts to do anything. Even a Super Elite Fighter is getting killed by a high level scout... :-/

Anything that can be done to balance this? (not by reducing exp gain :P )

Oh and now I am here: if there is a EU English speaking squad or Fleet I can join, I would like to. I used to be member of Brittannia Fleet.

regards, robb

This is probably intentional, they don't want people getting free experts, they want you to buy them. That said, you can get some free expert packs from the attendance and battle awards on KupaiSky (https://club.kupaisky.com/plugin.php?id=nf2_users&lang=en#li2)

 

I'm a little confused about your problem with credits though, I've been buying new ships constantly and not having any problems affording them. Of course, with the XP gain being what it is, it's probably not the end of the world to skip a ship if needed. Also, high level scouts are just plain overpowered and you're best to just avoid them until you get T4 fighters. I've got BVE +12 level 96 FPs and still struggle with them, and they still chew up my similar stat DBs if they catch them.

Frankly, it sounds like you are spreading yourself a little thin. Try to dump multiple boats you don't plan to powergrind in, dump it.

As a returning player, I would simply focus on getting a single BO and BB up-to par. I wouldn't mess around trying to get CV crew or experts or any of that until you are comforatble with your assets and have a feel again for the game.

I have recently leveled up two new crews through AA boats and it has been pretty straightforward and although quick it has been balanced. There is more preasure I suppose to spend money on experts and such but lots of free stuff right now.

It sounds like you are in that lul zone between 50 - 70. I would continue just trying to shoot down planes in an AA boat to level up and get to a BB4. Your accuracy and spread will not be amazing, I would try and lower expectations of your crew until you can get your hands on vets and experts. Remember you kinda get used to power-party level-up every game so when it stops happening suddenly you may feel stuck. Keep trying...

LOL, that has nothing to do with anything. 

Anyway, back to the point, they want to to buy items. You can buy experts, vets, credits, and points in the store now. Why make it easy to get for free when you can get people to spend money. I understand, it supports the game, but makes free to play rather.....impossible. 

For me, I don't really care, been here for 15 years, have not spent a penny on this gme for about 6 years till Corona hit. I'm fine with that, built a few new crews, going back to work Monday, up for debate if I stick around beyond HA and stuff. Just wait and see. It sucks, but thats the way the game is now
