I know I'm a horrible bottom 4 potato of the most moldy type of potato player there is in this game. However this week after finding myself constantly on teams that simply give up the capture points I need to vent just a leeeeeeeeeeeeetle.

I admit I am an extra briney person and I just need to disable chat. Once again I am a horrible player and need to be carried.

However I would just like to compare stats where I get a single cap and not much else vs my fellow players who where able to get many kills and lots of damage.

Why settle for ~800 when you can get 1500+ base xp from the win just by adding some capture point XP?

PS

Both these captains only have 11 points!

SHHHHHH!!  Don't tell everyone that secret. As of late its been nothing but what you speak plus one flank pushes the other doesn't.  I'm just like time to take a break for a while :cap_fainting:

Man I love cap XP. My only real complaint about mostly playing BBs is I so rarely get to a cap in time to get in on some of that delicious XP. Being a few meters away when the cap rolls over is the worst.

Team given options for A, B, C caps.   The choose A and B.  Fine but, just because you give up C cap does not equal giving up that flank.  I've seen too many games lost because flank is abandoned and not at the very least contested.

You mean, there's objectively an objective to play the objectives in an objective based game?

It should be no surprise that too many players simply don't understand how to play game objectives.  Those same players operate on the premise that the game is strictly "shoot as many ships as you can".

Absolutely agree OP! The Objectives are there for all to attempt to achieve, in fact nowadays securing a cap is no longer a thing that can be achieved by a single ship (unless half the enemy team are dead anyway lol) - he/she needs the team to support if securing a cap (go teamwork!).

 

That's why I believe accomplished objectives should be XP shared amongst the team. I know when I play as a DD, there's no way I'm going to accomplish anything (like capping) nowadays without some kind of support. :Smile_honoring:

+1 for the cute kitten gif.  I wants it!!

  Anyhow, I agree.  Many's the time when capping was about the only thing I could do in a slow as heck BB when the action all happened way over there...   Or when the hyperactive chipmunks on my team blew up every enemy within reach in the first 3 minutes of the game, and are now charging off after the stragglers.   I'll just calmly sail into the abandoned caps and farm xp that way.   I've even ended up #1 for points after a 10k damage game, lol.

They nerfed capping XP awhile ago.  Much more profitable to farm damage and cap when safe as a DD then to contest early on and get blown up.

I object!

Stick to the object of the discussion.

The KM line T7 and above is fast enough to get there early.  Hell, I beat DDs to the cap sometimes.

:Smile_izmena:  

 

Mighty MO gets there fast too...and with radar too!!!!

Hood is very fast, but it isn't really a cap brawler...works better as a kiter.

 

But the KM brawlers...take 'em to the cap.

 

That said, I don't go to the cap for the XP...I go to the cap because it helps win the game!!!!  Do what it takes to win.  Sometimes, that doing will get you points...sometimes it won't.  Just figure out what gets the win...and do it.

Yeah some are definitely fast enough, and I've solo capped plenty in BBs before. Typically though I follow DDs to keep cruisers off of them, and I don't want to get in their way if they're knife fighting. Just find it funny how many times, especially in mid tier USN BBs, I'm sitting there saying "GOOOOOOOO!" while my poor, slow ship slides into the cap a second after it's been capped.
