    What DD's do.

    Pretty firm in your beliefs but kind of average in the results department. I might be open to other suggestions on how to play if I were you. Additionally, to address your anecdote, I would add that survival is not always advantageous to the team. If your goal is to win (granted, it may not be), you may have to sacrifice yourself to the Halland to apply some damage. Later, the CV can finish him. Allowing the Halland to run wild may not have been great in this scenario. Often, at critical junctures in the game, ships are sailing to the back of the map and prioritizing survival. This is an active contributor to loses.

    Karma & Why?

    You might think it’s funny but perhaps you should think about that. Your teammates are telling you they don’t enjoy your play style.

    DDs are NOT dead!

    I mean, to be honest your post is kind of boring. You had a good game, good for you. That’s great and you should be happy. But imagine a forum in which people just posted good games. Zzzzzz The discussion that has ensued though is rather interesting. Too bad some people, when their opinions are refuted, just take their ball and go home. The man has made good points. Too bad you can’t respect the ideas and object to his communication style. Isn’t the point of the forum to exchange ideas?

    Or maybe he’s just a guy who actually knows some things. That would be in stark contrast to the usual rabble of know nothing’s around here...

    BB skill ceiling is higher than DD

    Ya man, so wth are you doing? New player comes to the forums and expresses uniformed opinion. O7 stat shames and ridicules him. Cool.

    Ranked Shouldn't Stop When We Rank Out

    No one wanted to play without a reward. In the original implementation, winning games in the sea wolves league netted you super containers. People played. A lot. They took the super containers away after a few seasons and thats what killed it.

    I truly am at a loss.

    Yes, you are probably right. The most logical explanation is conspiracy. There is no way two guys posting on a forum for a video game could like the game and company who puts it out. Impossible.

    Wut? A guy with almost 3,000 forum posts likes the game and the company who makes it? Crazy.

    I truly am at a loss.

    You place an unreasonable amount of emphasis on the cap. I would much rather lose the cap than the DD. It is exceedingly rare these days to win down on ships, up on points. Without question, the most valuable thing from a team perspective is live ships. Getting into a gun fight in the cap in the first two minutes of the game ensures that you will play the next 18 minutes short of HP or not at all.

    Your Win Rate Sucks!

    Come on, reset that password and see what you are capable of. Beats throwing games on your regular account. I am interested. If an average player, which I think you have described yourself as (apologies if that is incorrect), rerolls maximizing for wins, what happens? How well can you do.

    Your Win Rate Sucks!

    So, let’s see if your right! Keep playing that account and put some battles on it. 500-1000 or so. Play to maximize win rate and let’s see what happens. I’m interested. I’m down for the experiment.

    Your Win Rate Sucks!

    Dude, this isn’t a laboratory. In the real world, you are forced to work with the data you have. Not the data you want. Leave the classroom once in a while.

    Best Ships for Ranked Season 13

    I take your valid point on board.

    Best Ships for Ranked Season 13

    In that case, it’s even more important that you receive your ship pick advice from someone who has extensive experience in ranked. If you are struggling to get to 10, you really need to be in the right ships from the get go.
