    Why I'm stopping playing.

    I don't know if it's really a given that good players stay and bad players leave. Where is the data supporting that? As Flamu loves to point out, there is a ton of sub 45% WR players who have tens of thousands of games under their belt. Sub being the operative word. A lot of them are far below 45%. The problem isn't really the actual win ratios either, that's just an indicator. The actual problem is that people are failing their way up to higher tiers and not bothering to learn the game. To some extent, I can see why. WG has made sure that higher tiers are more attractive to play. There are more missions and campaigns pertaining to higher tiers, better rewards and so on. There is a relatively steep learning curve in this game. There is a lot of poorly documented stuff to take in. You kind of have to make an effort and go out of your way to do so. It hasn't become any easier either, since CCs have shifted their focus from the more concise youtube-video format to twitch streams. So in summary, this is a game where it's attractive to play higher tiers, but that's also a lot more complicated. I think that results in a lot of people brute-forcing (yolo'ing) their way up the tiers and never really learning to play properly.

    Why I'm stopping playing.

    I don't know why people are getting upset about someone speaking up for punishing bad play. That's how computer games work. If you win, you get points, if you lose, you get less. The problems start to compound when a player can coast along and still get rewarded. A player can join up for a game, and simply opt to get killed quickly if they think things are going poorly. Then jump into another ship and repeat. You get people who don't care anymore, because it doesn't matter what they do. There's nothing pushing them to improve. Maybe that's fine by them, but it ruins the game for everyone else. I fully understand why people choose to quit over something like that. It needs to be said.

    Incompetence, Greed, and Obliviousness

    It's almost as if WG had talented people creating the core game, and now they're not working for WG anymore.

    DD mains - Think CVs are your worst nightmare?

    You are obviously not a DD main
  5. Yes. It would seem a lot of people have issues with the way CVs affect the gameplay of WoWs.

    You were proven wrong and no matter how you choose to portray this, planes will always be several times faster than BBs and BBs will never be able to fly.

    You are wrong.

    Unless Russian BBs start flying at 200kts, they are never going to be as unbalanced as CV planes.

    "Hurr durr playing DD against CVs is just fine"

    I don't see the "attitude" and I'm sure the mod can speak for themselves. The moderator in question has 5 posts to their name, which would explain why you haven't seen anything at all from this mod. It's not your place to tell me what to do.

    "Hurr durr playing DD against CVs is just fine"

    This is the first time I've seen this type of statement addressed by a moderator. You are being pretty strict here. Far stricter than what we're used to seeing. Judging by your post count, you are a new moderator. You might want to ensure that the level of moderation being done by you is consistent with the norm.
  11. What's frustrating about T4 CV is the low plane speed and small attack groups. Other than that I think they're pretty similar to T6. Easy enough against low or equal tier ships, but weak against high tier and stacked AA. Some low tier ships don't even have AA at all.

    Are the DD Mains' Whining Days Now Over?

    A generalization like this doesn't say much. The handling and success rate vs. planes varies from DD to DD, and there's nearly 100 different DDs in the game.

    Are the DD Mains' Whining Days Now Over?

    Who's really whining here OP? It seems like you're making another one of these sour-toned threads every day. Do you see DD players calling names and acting like they have a personal vendetta against CV players instead of addressing what actually needs to be addressed? No, you do not.

    Dang it, WG. You deleted 1750 replays! - Fixed?? (NOT)

    Perhaps, but you'd have to rack up over 10 times the default number of replays before you're even looking at 500MB. It seems weird that they don't include an option in the settings to set the allowed amount of replays.

    If we're only supposed to keep 30 replays, then what are replays even for? That's like one or two days of playing for a lot of people. What is the reason why WG is so desperate to keep our number of replays so low?
