I used to play quite frequently but the past few years my play was limited to maybe a couple dozen or so battles a year. Recently I decided to get back into playing more WoWs. Now, my playing REALLY blows chunks! I've always been a 48% WR (overall) player with "meh it's not notable one way or the other" damage output. I've always done better in ranked - with i think like a 53% WR... (thanks for the carry yo) And I've never really survived a lot of battles.
Lately, I've been grinding the Montana legendary module as it gives me something to focus on. But my wins over the last month or so has been a laugh! really, like 33% WR and like 60-70k damage, and that's on a good day! (now overall WR is like 47% and dropping)
Frankly, I'm at my wits end. I don't know what to adjust... I'm not looking to be a unicum, but I would like to have fun. (spreadsheet says Im having fun)
I mean I know the basic 'details' of playing...
Don't show broadside
give proper lead
don't drive in straight lines
threat assess available targets
dodge torpedoes BEFORE you see them
know my ranges
know my enemy
don't repair party single or double fires
know which ammo to use and when
One thing I have noticed since getting back - everyone seems to hug islands now... I mean... really... REALLY hug them.. and not just the Atlanta types... But even the open water cruisers and battleships. Even the destroyers.... best concealment?? lets stay here behind this island... Anyway... While this may be related to the CV changes a couple months ago, I see this in every match now not just carrier games.
I tend to go out and play as a tank... I know this has an adverse affect on my life expectancy... But if this is "the" reason - what's changed???
IDK... I don't know what to change and it's a bummer.
