IMO stay in co-op if you don't play to win.

 

God no, do not send the idiots my way, please.

I did. But with the amount of people who have been posting stuff like this seriously, it took a while to realize that this particular OP isn't the type.

Its what makes it a great troll thread, it actually seems legit. I like these kind of trolls, the ones like Mr_alex and kyogre are not funny.

 

Also you dont get to laugh at people who get tricked :teethhappy:

River, if it makes you feel better, I agree with your points on the first page.  There are significant and useful reasons to keep stats shown and it has nothing at all to do with allowing other players to judge your play.  Frankly, the fact that people allow some random unknown person represented by only a username to get under their skin by using their stats against them, is as preposterous as it sounds.  The magic bullet here is to simply ignore those players and realize that they are just as frustrated as you are at how the game is going for them.  

 

Leaving your stats visible though allows you to utilize MANY of the stat webpages out there to look at your stat trends.  Maybe you've decided to change how you play a certain class.  How do you track that with the in game stats provided by WG?  You don't, at least not easily, but you can easily do this on warships.today.

 

In fact this was a key point to this video:


Ever wondered how to play a USN BB or USN DD's?  Or maybe you just want to watch some fun WoWs videos?  Have I got the videos for you! Check out my YouTube channel here for How to Videos and More:

Troll post though this may be... you gotta admit... it's very well written. Smooth and well-flowing, correct use of grammar and punctuation, and excellent use of paragraphs and spacing. :happy_fish:

Wasn't sure this was bait until OP overplayed the "play 4 funz!!1!!1111!" angle. Then it became low quality bait and I was sad. :(

It's a lot better than most trolling, but he doesn't toe the line between believable and absurd well enough for it to be more deeply interesting.

​this saddens me. I have worked long and hard on long, elaborate posts, and was directly quoted on several of the OPs major points. even sadder, most of the responses indicated nobody figured out most of mine were troll posts. one of the reasons I write long, elaborate posts is because it's way more fun than playing lately. perhaps I shall go back to the grind with a vengeance, and SLT.

I'll trade ya... I'll take the bots you play against in coop as my teammates, you can play against the idiots I want off my teams.

 

I think we'll both be happy with the results of that trade.

It's too bad I find blowing up ships and winning games fun.  If I didn't I may find myself playing games like the complete potato I always wanted to be.
