The first thing you can do is learn how to utilize grammar properly. For example, try putting in periods at the end of a sentence.

what isn't a problem! I experiment with my hull angle, but still get the crap kicked out of my Citadel! I am generally on the loosing team, I am starting to get the hang of leading targets, but still feel like I'm not doing as much Damage as i could. Torpedoes always miss, I somehow always end up the focused target! and keep in mind. that if its a ship that should hang back i do hang back and stick with the rest of the fleet! if its a ship that rushes the objective I rush the objective! but even still just looking at Warships today has left me quite depressed about my skill! 

 

AS FOR ALL YOU GRAMMAR NAZIS OUT THERE, YOUR NOT HELPING!!!!!

If you have any replays of a typical game, that can be one of the best ways to get advice tailored to you specifically.

 

@Soshi_Stone but have you been to boston in the fall?

Because I'm on mobile I can't get as much information as I'd like, but I suspect you're under a few misconceptions about gameplay mechanics.

 

When do you usually play? I can div with you and give some advice.

so instead of setting up ways to help you people are going to just berate you perhaps because of grammar???

I think you would be better off going to YOUTUBE and looking up Flamu, Notser, iChase and others.... 

nothing good could possibly come from posting it here,,, apparently

iChase's captain's academy is a very good learning tool, but it seems to me that you're having trouble with the absolute basics.

 

Try not to be the one in the front. If you rush a cap, always have a plan of retreat, in case you meet resistance. If you "always somehow end up the focused target", that is because you are the easiest target for the enemies to shoot at. Maybe you're out in front, maybe you're showing your broadside, maybe you're the only one spotted.

 

Let others go first. Let others become focused. Angle towards or away from enemies shooting at you. There's no shame in withdrawing if too many people are shooting at you.

 

Stop making yourself a target. When you're shooting at someone, think about why you're shooting at him in particular, what he's doing that makes him the best target for you to shoot at. And then don't do that thing yourself.

Advanced tips for average to decent players aren't going to help the OP. He needs to learn the basics first.

Good point, tier 5 is rough, I would recommend dropping to tier 3 and 4, which gets better matchmaking. Nobody's forcing you to move up when you grind out the next ship. There's nothing wrong with playing lower tier ships if you enjoy them. I'm on the verge of getting my 10th T10, but I keep ships of tier 2 all the way up to 10 in my port, because I enjoy them.

 

Another tip I can give you OP, is spectate good players after you die. Watch how they play, what they do, try and figure out why they're going what they do. Learn by observation.

 

Another tip is, don't switch ship types too often. You learn more by playing one ship 20 times than 20 ships once each, especially if they vary wildly in play style.

Listen to Lert.  I'd also have to agree you should drop down to tier 4 and get a better understanding of game mechanics before moving up.  This game is mostly about positioning and placing yourself in favorable situations.

 

I'll give you the advice I give all new players.

1. The mini-map is is hax.  Turn on last position and ALWAYS pay attention to where enemy and friendly ships are.

2. Zoom out of scope after every shot and look around.  Tunnel vision is very bad.

3. Avoid fair fights when ever possible.  If the situation isn't favorable, start retreating.

4. And most importantly, ALWAYS have an exit plan.

After looking at your stats, you have an overall survival rate of 12%. And that only goes down the more recent we get. I think this might be a large part of your problem, so I'm going to try and help you improve that. And given most your games are in BBs we will probably start with the good ole slogan: "Don't sail in a straight line." However I'm also going to add: "Especially towards the enemy." If you get too close, especially at the start of a match, you'll probably be flanked and unable to angle. And if the shells don't get you, the torpedos will. But, because your posting here, I doubt your a bot. So you probably don't just try to run straight in. What I'm betting happens is this: You push at a cap, you see lots of enemies pop up, you try to get close and shoot them, you realize your losing the fight, you start turning around, you see your ship explode suddenly and violently. The problem comes when you realize you'd be dead if you hadn't turned. Sound familiar?

Just power on through and get that Yamato, it will all work out.

 

[seriously, go have fun in Coop and learn how to shoot and dodge basically, how to work with your team. Reflexes have to get rather intuitive and that takes time and many battles]

Don't always push just because you're in a ship built to push. Discretion is the better part of valor.

 

Basically, learn when it's good to push, and when it's best to hold the line or even retreat. I recommend once you have the basics down, maybe consider the armchair general approach and try to study tactics. Especially if you want to drive battleships.

 

 

Also, watch Jingles videos, like "How to Not Suck". Some of it may be a little outdated, but it's a good way to learn that broadside is a paddlin', how to identify a ram before you get rammed, a strong emphasis on sticking together and watching the map.

Yea I I think that might be part of it I do know how to use my rudder and i do actually turn and try to avoid showing the full broadside unless its to make the final blow or i am still far back and sniping from long distance/Have not yet been seen at the start of the match however i think you may have gotten to the crux of the matter It may just all and all be my positioning as far as my survival goes and the fact i may be to eager and push up a little to quickly :P 

 

Now onto another issue i know i have when im in a DD or a Cruiser/Scharnhorst/Terpitz that has Torpedoes and that is actually using my torpedoes While what im about to talk about is more for DD/Cruiser play its still valid i feel and that is Most of the time my torpedoes miss at range even though i aim with the white prediction marker I have even tried giving a little more or a little less to compensate for maneuvering but I never get any more than say maybe the occasional single torpedo hit if i am lucky

 

but i will probably have to turn to Ichase's videos to see if i cant figure out angling better
