Sucky night...

...that's all we'll say about that.

 

Last game was Trident, Epicenter Mode.  Pretty much my best game in Prinz Eugen all night, but I still stank and it was still a loss.

 

Is 45 Defense Ribbons 'A Lot?' Mostly I'm just curious.

 

Only other item of interest is the game got me under 150k xp remaining for my first KM captain to reach 19 skill points, (I've been grinding him out from 17 skill points in PE.)

 

General comment about PE... The thing is a bloody slug. It's accelleration sucks, it's rudder shift sucks, (even with the module,) and I can see why LWM said it was a difficult ship to do well in.

 

I asked in All-chat before a game started if Hipper's accelleration was just as bad, and recived a solid 'YES' from several Green, and Red, players.

45 is quite a bit, but that and the defeat sort of points toward the fact that your team couldn't keep ships in the epicenter caps to block them. If that were the case you'd have little to none as there aren't really any ships with cap progress. Also note that it's possible to get multiple defenses with one salvo on the same ship.

 

The only thing preventing caps were gunfire, and that can't really compete against physical cap blocking.

45 defense ribbons!! :cap_wander: That is quite a lot.

 

The most I've ever managed is 25.

Yea, 45 is a lot. I am surprised your XP was so low, wonder if defense ribbons have diminishing returns.

I would say ^this. Otherwise this tactic could be highly abused.

Most I've ever had was in the low 20's. Standard battle and I was buying time for my teammates to cap. We won that one too.  My understanding of defense points xp is that it depends on how much your resetting. So if each hit only resets 1 or 2  cap points, you won't be earning much. No idea how much you earn for each point though and also I could be way wrong.
