Over the last week or so i am seeing some of the worst gameplay from players i have ever seen in game. Lemming trains galore, afk players/bots, players doing things in higher tiers that they should have stopped doing at tier 3 and just plain playing stupid. I know we have always had bad players, but this week or so is just crazy. It is like a bunch of good players just stopped playing and we are left with a ton a bads. It is to the point i am just afraid to hit the battle button right now.

Meh, feels the same to me. I can't recall a time when bad players didn't permeate every tier and ship type in droves.

I don't know why people hate on lemming trains, they genuinely are a good tactic as long as it keeps pushing and doesn't stop.

a few times this works like a charm... but getting the team to understand almost never works all the time....

I prefer the term "death ball" lemming trains have a habbit of derailing but death balls just keep rolling.

It feels like DDs are just more cautious in going forward and this has a knock on effect with some of the other classes.

 

When a ship sets off the team sets off. I'm really not sure if WG invisaged creating the stand off/cautious approach of high tier play, but IMO they've managed to start bringing that type of play to the high-mid tiers.

 

I see more people saying they're looking to play mid to lower tiers.

Newcomers that don't understand the game modes and in general bad players. As a game grows in popularity both talented and bad players will come to play, this will lead to skewed matchmaking that if addressed properly will lead to somehow enjoyable product for everyone willing to stay. Our devs are yet to address any of these issues. Either deal with it or move to another game that seeks balance. It is very easy to progress through the tiers, all you need is time and 20$. Or more bucks if you want to participate in T10 matches right away. Doesn't take many of them to get deleted in the first 5 minutes for the game to effectively be won/lost. I have information that during the summer this will be fixed since kids will be outside playing in the sun and only hardcore nolifers will be left in the queue kappa.

what is going on is 6.3.0... But WG is pleased with it so no comment until they get some "stable" statistics

 

Now, pick what you prefer,

 

               Move on, nothing to see here

 

               There is no change in game play, it is in your head

 

               play a BB or die

 

              Buy a P2W and go clubbing

 

 

Anyway, the game play has never been so bad and boring. But this is a business and the developers are happy with it. Check the community-WG Q&A threads to see that nothing will move

Had a teammate torp me with a full spread from his Scharnhorst from what seemed like only 300m away this morning when we weren't even near the front lines (he only had 126 games played in total and said he was still getting used to it.)!  Had two games in Scharn, I think.  Other than that, it feels the same to me...

Ok, I will agree to this. I've seen a huge increase of AFK players and even a few bots where the boat simply sails to a nice safe corner and sits there. Usually, when you see the fore and aft turrets are perfectly aligned, it's a sign the player hasn't loaded. But to see this after the player has moved and remains there.... BOT!!

More people posting complaints about the game in general, more people saying they are leaving game and a competition many see as a slap in the face.

 

WG - continue to plough on!

 

There will always be those  posters that will dramatise everything! However, the amount of such negative posts regarding the game is worrying; especially when I can understand some of the points made. :(

Actually depends on what state you live in as to when Summer Vacation starts and ends resulting in slightly staggered timetable over all.

You know why it's so bad right now? It's cause I am not playing! Just kidding...Cause Vista and WG are no longer compatible. I really do think quite a few players dropped off after this change. In my case, I am waiting on a new PC, and meanwhile playing WoT, but not everyone can afford to do so. Basically WG(WoWs)said screw everyone with XP and Vista, we don't need em! I am willing to bet they lost a lot of players, certainly more than you would expect, with a sizeable chunk being veteran players. Whether they return or not still remains to be seen.

Come to think of it that would have an effect on things.

oh noes! He speaketh the truth!!

I agree. It's always fun to laugh at a good rage post and move along. It gets slightly more real when you can see where the OP is coming from and think " yeah, that irks me too!"

Regardless, WG has to do something to get butts in seats or it'll keep on this path. Things aren't feeling so fresh and the weather is just getting nice and school is still in...

No one should need to carry in a team oriented game...
