  1. Took me 15,619 battles, but hey, it’s still a milestone in my book.
  2. A partial fix would be to at least display the number of spotting ribbons gained on the scoreboard at the end, so your teammates have a better idea of your contributions to the match. caps, assisted caps, and defense ribbons also need to be displayed! I’ll worry about the compensation later... I just want it acknowledged as part of the final performance.
  3. A lot depends on the Tier of play. I’ve gotten plenty of caps in solo battleships at low to mid Tiers where aggressive play is viable. I’m of the opinion one should never leave a cap uncontested, no matter what ship you are playing.

    That is true.

    "The ultimate advices"

    Guy’s spot-on. It’s all about selfishness and entitlement. These same full health battleships 10 minutes into the match will then inevitably claim “our DDs sucked!” because there’s no one around to spot for them now they are finally ready to start playing.

    Caps matter

    I’ve always wanted the scoreboard to display a green number for how many Defended Flags a person received, and an orange number, for how many caps taken (with an assist counting as .5). By only displaying the ships destroyed, it reinforces the idea that every match is a deathmatch, and caps don’t matter. I’ve seen people get all indignant about matches won on points/capping, as they think that deprives them of damage-dealing time. It should be clearer how caps and defense contribute to an individual’s experience score. There should also be more objectives and tasks that count caps and defenses, and less that are all about doing damage. Finally, a lot of people don’t understand how the cap timers work. Specifically, they don’t seem to know that each ship in the cap is on it’s own unseen timer, and only that timer gets reset when the ship takes damage. It may look like that BB should get out of the cap to prevent the timer from being reset, but in reality it is only helping the others in the cap capture it faster. You can shoot that BB all day long, and at worst the unspotted DD in the cap will make the capture in no more time than it would have spent solo-capping. More than two in a cap does not speed up the capping, but forces the enemies to reset multiple timers in order to successfully defend the cap. As it stands, though, most people avoid the caps like they were poison, and it leads to long, boring games.
  7. I got that mod that replaces the “ Plays Poorly “ text with “C****t, what an a*****e.” No one else sees it and there is no difference in game affect. Plus, I felt it was more accurate and more in the spirit of historical role playing.
  8. You know, the original with King-of-the-Mountain style capping mechanics?
  9. Make a doubloon gun purchasable for doubloons. The ammo is doubloons; I can shoot at anyone, red or green, and if I hit them it makes them half a doubloon richer per doubloon I hit them with. They are then compelled to give me karma upvotes, which I can access using free exp. it’s a win-win for everybody, AND it defeats the sole purpose of having a karma system. I’m sure I’m not the first person to suggest this.
  10. It’s a meaningless number that many people are not even aware exists, but some people would still buy it, I bet. I think I would.

    Why no bonus for buying doubloons in bulk?

    Admiral’s Bounty it is, from here on out. Thank you for the helpful reply.

    Why Do you Play Destroyers (Diddys Quest To Understand)

    I like to capture the objectives in domination games. I had one game last night where I triple solo capped and came out number one on my team on the scoreboard, ahead of a guy that had four kills to my zero. i also like the feeling of sneaking into the enemy base and capping it, especially when the other team is ahead on kills.

    You are right, I am looking at this all wrong. Just because price breaks at various quantities exist everywhere in the physical world and have carried over to the digital world nearly everywhere else except here should not bother me. What I’ve got to do in the future is forget that the various packages exist, and just buy the 1,250 pack twenty times in a row. Thank you WG for saving me 19 cents and not inconveniencing me at all! Sorry for being a hater.
