The game becomes frustrating

Im playing since Beta..im not great, but somewhat solid.

*rant incoming*

Lately i notice that there is barely any teamwork..or communication. Players not using the ships they have to the fullest to support the team...or play with the team.

I dont want to say how to play the game..but ..i guess i do.

 

Its just becomes worse every match to see Battleships cartographing the edge of the map. Battleships that have full health at the end of the game. BBs that have full health and dont even think to push forward to take some heat for the DD or CA ,who keep stuff lit.

 

Destroyers being like snipers with torpedos or fast firing HE guns. granted those two do damage.But seing a destroyer not scout bit ....but sit behind the other ships, just to peak up every minute to fire its long range torps. Or watch the team get blown away by a wall of smoke...and instead of pulling one up himself, blow smoke..and stop..and sit in your little cloud and wait for some stuff being lit and then fire away your he guns from inside the smoke. Im sure youre making the difference that way.

 

Cruisers always sitting at max range and cant hit the moving target. So lets fire at the slow BB and put him on fire...hitting Cruisers or even those pesky DDs is way too hard. While the other DD or cruiser having a field day with our teams BB. Instead of putting some preassur eon those, so they at least have to zig zag,not to mention that your AA cover is useless 2 squares behind the team.

 

Carriers..dunno..but you can also move the carrier. You dont have sit still the whole game.

 

At least use the ship and its abilities which fits the situation and mesh in some teamwork. The game would be so much more enjoyable.

 

And Yes, i had a lot of those situations recently.:(

and that's the way it is almost all the time so just live with it since players do all that you mention just because they can and will continue to do so just because they can

Casuals are part of the community too.

 

As a semi-competitive player I get very irked seeing like OP described, especially idiot DDs that get themselves sunk in first five minutes instead of bailing and BBs that refuse to tank. Thing is, you can choose to get upset at how others play badly, or turn them into meat shields. I have survived before by hiding behind those wimps--deal is they honestly try to pull their weight, or they're not teammates I give a hoot about.

 

If they want to complain about how I'm doing nothing, tough cookies. I will point out their mistake and whatever else they did wrong. If they refuse to accept the lesson, then I'm not wasting my time on them. Which is understandable as I make it a point to learn from my mistakes, since I have more fun when I play well and especially when the team comes together. They match my standard or go away.

Unjust and unfair........

Dds go into hot caps mostly alone and have to try and own that cap usually vs many enemy ships.......

 

Bailing in these situations specially a hot cap can be impossible.

 

I doff my cap to those brave dd players whom give all alone :honoring:.

This is where you lost me. I got in just after Beta closed and it's been like this ever since I started. There are occasions when the team comes together but with about the same frequency as supercontainers deliver Nikolai.

Really? Thats the reason i play more games here now than in WoT, cause the community wasnt as rude and it seems most people knew what they did. Sure, the things i described happened also frequently. But now i expect it to happen, instead of thinking to myself" oh no this will not end well.".

The game is a paradox. the game modes are designed around team play, but the reward system rewards you more for individual play, at least as far as anyone can determine....

For all the changes in the system, kills + damage still carries by far the most weight for the average player, so this is how most people will play.

.......t there is barely any teamwork..or communication...

 

We aren't in teams, we are in groups. There's a HUGE difference.

The closest thing to teamwork in any group is when two or more divvy-up, otherwise it is eight to twelve individuals all doing what they each prefer to do.

 

Perhaps "Clans" will be teams.

+1 for word usage.

 

So what's the definition of "cartographing"?

How does one cartograph "the edge of map"?

  BB's end the game with full health for reasons explained above.   Allied DD's and Cruisers sail away from them full speed, and charge right into the enemy team.   Meanwhile, we're still trying to accelerate.   Nobody bothers to shoot at us, because the cruisers and DD's are making such good targets of themselves.

 

  Then you get on chat and start screaming at us for "not supporting".

 

 You ran off and left us way behind, remember?   The reds are now staying where they are- because you came to them.  No need to push up into the range of those BB's way back there...  If you want support, try waiting for us to catch up, so we CAN support you.  You could even try explaining what you intend and ask for help ahead of time.  Nobody responds well to being screamed at.  Nor are they likely to come charging to your rescue after you just called them every name in the book...

 

  If it comes near me, or within my range, I'm filling it full of holes.   I'm very happy to push and brawl- but I'm not stupid.  I'm not charging into the middle of all the enemy BB's- whilst my allies all run away and leave me to die. (which they are all too happy to do, btw)  Trust me- if I'm at full health, it's because nobody was shooting at me ( I did NOT return the favor!),  they wasted their shots shooting at my angled armor, or they assumed that this BB was a fool and an easy target for torps, and I was able to dodge them easily.

I have no issue with DD's setting a smoke screen and staying in it. They aren't doing anyone any good if they're dead. They have plenty of time to both spot and take shots that are available to them.

Or you could just wait for a more opportune chance, unless have to risk it for points or trying to light the red puny ships.

 

I've gotten as far as Kiev, so I'm used to bailing.

Well, mister smart-arrrrrse?

Give me a link to any definition of the word "cartographing" that you can find on the 'net.

Just one....anywhere.

So the OP expects players who've been randomly thrown together to work as a majorly efficient team?

 

 

 

Look at the bright side; The opposition is just as randomly thrown together as your team is. And just as efficient.

Cretin.

You have either not enough schoolwork to occupy your tiny brain or, if at the other end of the age-scale, you are accessing a computer without your minder, in which case the institution to which you are confined needs its license suspended.

With the teams i get i would never talk or work with them. They are all to horrible to bother. So i use them as my shields so i can do as much damage as i can because i know the game is going to come down to me doing everything. Teammates in this game are just targets that get in the way.

So OP, what you're saying is that you are frustrated with stupid people. The best advice is to join one of the top tier clans that have a very active group of 55+ win rate players who will at least give you an OP division that will win you a healthy number of games despite the stupids. 

 

Or play a different game genre that attracts intellectuals.
