M.A.S.S. Builder: Recent News

I've been distracted as all get out so here's a three parter. Having said that, I think once M.A.S.S. Builder releases either 0.11.0 or 0.12.0 I'm going to stop writing about the news itself unless it's particularly important. I want to make another shift since half...

Some Good and Some Not Good (M.A.S.S. Builder and WoWs)

M.A.S.S. Builder

I’m checking out 0.8.0 but there’s a lot to cover before I can write anything substantial on it. So far it’s all positive, though.

I’m also thinking of starting a personal project, and if all goes well, I should be able to put the final touches on my Gelgoog J FnF article. Basically the idea is to make a replica of the Gelgoog J in M.A.S.S. Builder and use a photo or two for the Gelgoog J article. Nothing major, but I want to interweave my projects whenever and however possible. There’s no point playing M.A.S.S. Builder right now if I’m not going to be writing about my time with the game or getting pictures for other projects.

World of Warships

The super carrier criticism has begun, and the critics aren’t wrong. I think the announcement came way too early. This is right after another round of submarine testing, so the people who hate the nonstandard ship classes didn’t even get a breather to calm down. There’s also a lot more that needs addressing, including the base game carriers; the shadow of the CV rework is still hanging over everything and the Soviet CVs were only recently introduced. This is way too soon to be seeing videos of jet aircraft crossing the majority of the map in the time it takes a battleship to reload its main guns.

I just hate all the unproductive negativity Wargaming invites to the discussion because of their inflexible development and release schedules.

That and their questionable hires. I don’t have much to say regarding the new community manager Wargaming hired for North America. WG NA is already slightly converged from what I’ve seen, so bringing on a controversial CM with next to no experience with WoWs is probably going to be a drop in the bucket.

Begin (2024)

2023 ended weirdly abruptly for me, but I got the shot in the arm I needed in order to hit the ground running in 2024. This year's going to be absolutely crazy, but for me personally, I feel my worst years are finally behind me. I'm ready to stop drowning in a sea of...
