I was looking at my stats and got really confused. Here's a comparison between my Normandie and Kongou results: Frankly, I'm terrible in the Normandie. (I'm terrible with Kongou too, but not as bad as when I'm playing Normandie.) But when I look at the stats, I consistently play better with Normandie than with Kongou on just about every metric - damage, experience, frags, survival - except win rate. What's even more confusing is that my Normandie has been fully upgraded for all 35 of her games - my Kongou only finally got 2/3 upgrades by game 23. While I try to play to each ship's strengths and weaknesses, overall I play both ships similarly. So I think it's a problem with how I'm approaching both ships. And even though I haven't played many games in either ship, I'd like to start figuring out why my performance has this pattern. I know there's a lot of things I can do to improve, but I'm not sure where to focus first. Is it most likely my micro game, like angling and aim? Should I rethink what roles I can play on my team with the Normandie? Is there a shift in the meta between T5 and T6 I'm ignoring? I've heard that Fusou plays similar to Normandie, so I'd really like to figure out what I'm doing wrong before I get to her. I'd appreciate any advice!
Hey all! I'm back (ish). As some of you know, I own and operate restaurants. Recently, I opened a new concept, and it has sucked up most of my time and energy in the last few months, so apologies for depriving you all of my stellar content and witty retorts. Anyway, this is a subject near and dear to my heart. I've been playing for a relatively long time, and when I started, I had no gaming experience of any kind whatsoever, but I had a real interest in teh botes, and I saw an ad, so I thought it would be fun to try. And it was. BUT I sucked. Like, I was pretty bad. That bothered me a bit. So, I came to the forums, and started watching vids, and started asking questions, and I started to get better. I learned how to play within the team concept, how to increase my damage output, and how to win more. I learned my own playstyle, and which types of ships suited the way I enjoyed playing. I learned how/when to ignore other players and play my own game, and I learned how/when to listen to other players so I could git gud. I didn't really git gud, but I sure did get better. Then I joined a clan. A couple of unicum guys accepted my application based on the steady trend upward in my stats and win rate, and I started playing with those guys in divisions. I found the benefit of divisioning, and started to invite other players who were interested in improvement (and having fun while improving) into my clan and into divisions. My win rate kept improving. I revisited ships that I did poorly in the first time through, and I forced myself to learn to do better in them. Hell, I even became a half-way competent CV player! But most importantly, I did all of those things to achieve a specific goal: 50% win rate. This may seem like a modest goal to many of you, but to me it was like taking over a bankrupt company with no cashflow and running it back into the black. When I resolved to get to 50%, I was at about 46% or so, and had a few thousand games in. Moving the needle forward when you're that far behind takes a lot of wins, a lot of time, and a lot of patience. I have played 7 411 random games. I am now at 49.98% W/R. I will achieve my goal tonight. SO Anyone who thinks that W/R is determined buy luck, or RNG, or matchmaking, or the skill level of the CV players you get stuck with, please understand why you are not seeing the big picture. Your win rate is an indicator of where you are headed if you fail to improve, and is also a measurement of your experience over the grand duré. It is not fixed in stone, and you alone can change it for the better. Set a goal, and work at achieving it. Get in with players better than you, and learn from their example. WATCH VIDEOS. Learn something about yourself, and dammit, git gud. It took me well over a year to hit this milestone. It took me more games to get here from where I was than most of you have played, period. To me, it's kind of a big deal. If anyone sees me in game tonight, feel free to give me a much deserved shout out. I won't respond, however, because I'm presently chat banned, and man, is THAT a whole other thread.... I'll see you here again when I reach 55%.
