    Played a lot of coop on the 4th. Never felt that when I was using a BB I was at a disadvantage. Coop rewards aggression. If you try to play as a distant BB, you’re not going to accomplish much. Get in close, where you should be, and you’ll rack up nice scores. I had several 4-kill, 100,000-150,000 damage games in BBs yesterday.
  2. This sounds like a great way to continue decreasing the number of long-time players. I’ve stopped playing Randoms. Only play Coop maybe 2 days a week now. I used to spend hundreds of dollars per year on the game. Nothing since Christmas this year, though. At some point the devs need to think about why we all started playing this game. This New Coke stuff isn’t capturing my time, let alone my money.

    Why I quit playing randoms

    I’ve largely stopped playing Randoms, too. The enjoyment to frustration ratio is out of balance. Bring in skill-based MM, where I can compete with similarly situated players. I don’t enjoy either extreme—playing with those that don’t understand the mechanics or with those who are so much better than me that I need to hope for a golden BB. I wouldn’t waste my time going out to play tennis with those that are far inferior or far superior to me. I’m not interested in doing that while sitting at my computer, either. All I want is a good, competitive experience with teammates and opponents who are at a comparable skill level to me.

    Premium Advice

    Think about your goals. If US BBs are in your future, a captain trainer that is useful with the skills they demand is what you want. That would be Alabama. MA isn’t so useful for training US BB captains, as her abilities require a different set of skills. If variety is what you’re after, you can expand your selection beyond American ships into some othe fun directions.

    Who are you threatening to track down and harm, exactly? People like you need to do some serious self-assessments and get some help.

    I have a go fund me

    Plenty of folks make a good living using their computer at home. Why can’t you?

    I have a go fund me

    Whole lotta time to play games, but somehow unable to work...
  9. When you say you worked in the development world, what exactly do you mean? I worked in testing on industrial software. Back then, alphas were traditionally where you would test for feature functionality and betas were where you would work through the unexpected behaviors that we call bugs. Now companies call things whatever their marketing folks tell them to call it—it’s just a name. Point is, though, that moaning and whining that software being tested has bugs is pretty silly/stupid. That is, after all, why it’s being tested. Your rant was without much merit, particularly if you “worked in the development world.”
  10. There’s some humor in someone getting upset that a beta is full of bugs.

    WG - Wrong Planes on Enterprise

    Don't confuse success with causality. Pilot training, proper tactics, superior C3, better fuel, etc. likely had more to do with the USN's success than type of aircraft. In other words, whether it was an F6F, a late F4F, or an F4U, the results wouldn't likely have changed very much.

    How does a person get to tier 9 without understanding that they must have all of the required modules unlocked, or be willing to unlock them, before moving to the next ship?
  13. No, I mean proxy spotting. Many of the ills that this game suffers from stem from it. It’s a stupid concept that forces so many compromised balance mechanics. It encourages terrible game play.
  14. Remove proxy spotting from the game. It’ll force more communication and teamwork, make DDs more viable in terms of radar and attack planes, and force less passive play amongst BBs. Maybe have the mini map still get the plots.
  15. Hey, maybe they'll put an old Atari 2600 joystick into the premium shop. That'd feel right at home with how refined the aircraft controls are. It would likely be an improvement.
