  1. It's not the car, it's the driver.

    What you want is division-less MM. But maybe you also like to play divisions so maybe you don't actually want that. It's complicated.
  2. MM Has Been Improving

    Back in the day, there were all sorts of MM based hijinx that people had to deal with. Uptiered carriers, DD vs No DD, lots of BB imbalance. Sure they could tweak the player skill thing a bit but unicum divisions are always going to be an issue if you allow divisions. I think we've reached peak MM.
  3. The pro players need something to keep them interested in the game. Ranked and (i'm assuming) clan wars are quite painful experiences that players put themselves through for whatever personal reasons. They deserve to be rewarded for that effort. /I'm not a pro player
  4. Which ships have you retired, and why?

    I guess I'll have to give T7 another go. T6 was always my cutoff since I'm not a fan of the gimmick game. Now that I'm fully immersed in the gimmick game, might as well try the other tiers where it's rampant.
  5. I usually have to navigate through a number of BBs to get in position behind an island to do some HE spam. Then when I push into the cap and eventually die, where are the BBs? Still behind that island...
  6. Which ships have you retired, and why?

    Always been a fan of the cruisers. When they were released, I was a big fan of the German BBs especially Scharn. Made the mistake of playing them in a ranked season and immediately fell out of love. German BB dispersion FTL... Just retired Cleveland (sobs). We'll see what happens next. Been playing Des Moines and HIndy lately. Fun, but, high tiers man...
  7. I feel ya. I wouldn't read too much into the potato situation. I think most people just don't know what to do and are waiting for someone who does.
  8. Getting Frustrated

    Yeah I don't know. I'm not a big fan of emblems/flair. I put mine on recently just to get the "something new" nag thing to go away.
  9. Getting Frustrated

    The advantage to having so many facerolls is it gives a slightly above average player the opportunity to obviously carry more. Most of the time, the things you do to win a match aren't obvious to other players and sometimes even to yourself. But, when you hard carry a bad team, even if it's by accident or includes a number of "oh i shouldn't have done that"'s, you know it and it should be fairly obvious to the rest of the players. (i said "should" be)
  10. Possible Solution to Radar

    What's the logical conclusion of radar? The standard meta of DDs capping in smoke in early game becomes more varied. When all the caps are covered, flanks will need to pushed to uncover those caps. Possibly more DDs out on the flanks spotting and annoying the piss out of anyone trying to move that way and either denying that flank or forcing a coordinated push through the DD. They should get rewarded for that and I don't they do currently. The problem is that the new meta would require more aggressive play by cruisers and BBs. That's a big leap given the current meta (let everyone die then the bbs duke it out at the end).
  11. Possible Solution to Radar

    I staged a mini protest and ground out the German CA line. Finally got the Hindy. Played the first three games, and in every one of them, the DDs were playing the spotting game to great effect. On the other team of course. So, I hopped in the DM and fixed that problem because that's how counters work. I have all the sympathy in the world for DDs on caps in the beginning of the game but not so much the ones out on the flank making my life miserable. I still enjoy a good old fashioned non gimicky DD hunt but the bigger the maps get the harder that becomes without a lil help.
  12. I just hard carried epicenter, tears of the cruiser. Got nothing. I was in the Roon for the third time, wound up on the enemy's side for most of the game, by myself, flushing out lots of campers and torping a BB or two and then got called a coward and lost 2 rep points because we lost. Nature of the beast i suppose.
  13. Best Ship to Inflate WTR?

    I gotcha. Yeah, I check myself out on occasion but not much beyond that. Seems like an awful lot of work...
  14. Best Ship to Inflate WTR?

    Where do your stats show up besides looking them up on one of the stat sites?
  15. Roon help

    So... 12 hours, lots of flags and xp camos and 100k free xp later and I have the Hindy. The Roon is awkward when you need to cruiser stuff but it definitely is a beast when kiting and the spotter plane is much more useful than I gave credit. Now that I can savor it as opposed to grind with it, I'm sure I'll grow to appreciate it more.
