  1. I always feel a need to go back and double check the roster for my name when I see statements like this.

    Tier IV, 9 vs 9, 3 CV's per side

    As a guy who finally took a stab at CVs after the rework running in the 6CV matches is a real downer. Back in the old days I took great pride in being able to help defend my friendly ships against air attack or at least stifle the efforts of enemy CVs... but now I am literally powerless until the end game to do anything. Ive got no fighters and attacking enemy CVs with aircraft early this on is... well... let’s call it undesirable. It immediately puts (almost if not) everyone in match in a foul mood- including most CV drivers. Most just play to get the game over with and hope for something better next battle- I suppose if WG just wants to speed up the battles and get them finished faster making the gameplay thoroughly undesirable may be a step in the right direction... If I had ANY way of helping my team against the aircraft threat I could digest the 3 CV games at low tier. Without it it’s just not fun at all. I think access to a limited fighter presence isnt a lot to ask for and would help provide some merit for CVs looking to protect their fleet.
  3. DD play is a lot more like work than fun... Playing atago in tier X is a vacation by comparison. With that said lately I’ve been seeing 2 or 3 times the DDs in high tier matches over any other ship type. 4 DDs per side has been the norm at least in my own experience over the past couple weeks. But a quick scan of MMM shows few of these players are truly competent in the type... which I think supports the suggestion that many of the really good DD players don’t bother anymore.

    noob questions about commanders

    This is not an uncommon mistake. Glad you got it figured out!

    Cant use chat LOL

    Oh look. Another thread from our resident former “helicopter mechanic.” How refreshing.
  6. Unless someone is a troll in which case it’s “the full meal deal.”
  7. Just a quick shout out to you- you’ve been my goto for DD relevant information. Thanks for all the work you put in to helping us improve. I know making videos isn’t always easy- I think the family injects are priceless and simply build on the fact that not all good players have no other obligations in their lives.

    Kagerō 16 torpedoes

    Yeah- except that the information is literally right there. So... uh... yeah.
  9. The sad thing about this whole thread and it’s pretense is that all ANYONE needs to do to get help is ask for it after demonstrating a willingness to help themselves. Whether it’s just a shout out for help or an admission of ignorance- the volume of information that spills into these types of threads is overwhelming. I don’t know of any who spent any time mastering this game who aren’t elated to be able to share their lessons- since they were born of unspeakable frustration. Show even a small amount of interest in improving [edited] gameplay and you’ll get more information than any single person could absorb... which is the whole point of a forum- people who remain silent can sit in the shadows and read. And learn. So to those of you hoping to unlock some secrets- just come on out and admit your weakness. Explain what you’ve done to correct it instead of blaming the team or game mechanics. I guaranty that if you do that all manner of players - me included- will be beating each other up trying to be the first person to be posting Trying to help you out.

    Military Month Contributer Flag

    Every ship almost all the time. The small exception is during special veteran occasions in nations where I only have one flag staff. It’s a very small gesture but I’ll wear my veteran support flags over MMC during those times. Nobody sees them nor cares but it means something to me so I guess that’s a thing.
  11. “Fortune favors the bold- but don’t forget to tell the enemy.” In hindsight most of the mistakes I’ve ever made was trying to be influential early... instead of being just a bit more passive and keeping my guns in the game. If hitting the repair button one fire early is the biggest mistake you make all game then I dare say you’re doing pretty well. At a fundamental level these errors aren’t the ones that should weigh you down... at a higher altitude view maybe there was another error that resulted in that premature activation being detrimental to the rest of the game and being influential when the game depended on it. Early activation of a consumable is often a red herring that distracts a person away from the bigger issue... just my opinion-
  12. In defense of those who are playing DDs and doing their best, while there are loads of people who buy stupid by the pound there are others who get outplayed so decisively that it looked like they just threw their ship away. DDs have a very, very, very- infinitesimally small window in which to make a mistake. Between air strikes or being spotted by aircraft, outspotted or hydro'd by a red DD, radared in series by ships anchored behind islands within radar range of a full cap circle... Especially in higher tiers right now there are often 3-4 radars plus a couple you're not sure of. If you get tunnel visioned on something for just a few seconds too long you miss the info you needed to avoid coming around a corner into a pair of DMs... or the Kleber... or the (name your poison.) If we look at every DD player who dies as an idiot who didn't learn the mechanics then we're really not being fair to the DD drivers as a whole. There are loads of DD players out there who want to win... but in trying to do so in this most unforgiving ship type these days will make critical mistakes that lead to abrupt ends. It might look like suicide- it might look like idiocy. But really, the meta in DDs right now is ruthless and unrelenting and it makes a lot of us look like chumps. So I'm sorry for that- But one thing I'll add is that there is no video and no amount of information that you can give to someone that is going to help them excel at being a DD player in every battle without letting them go out and make the mistakes and retain the information. There is ALWAYS the potential of getting your pants ripped off in spite of best intentions...
  13. Nothing about using MMM automatically makes a person a [edited] in game chat... Plenty of people who don't use it are still [edited]- even during a win. Regardless of using it or not using it- you can still only ever take 1 cap at a time.
  14. I’ve been using MMM like this for awhile too- typically trying to reach out in game and coordinate with those skilled players if we’re on similar ends of the map. Especially in similar ship types. This has often worked out extremely well... while people with truly bottom end stats seldom surprise.
