XP is a stupid joke

I am not going to WASTE (and that is what it is) my time playing in a 12-15 minute match to be the SOLE survivor while losing due to points and only get 245xp...  That is a WASTE of my time and if that is how Wargaming net wants it they will lose another player. This is like the 3rd time today that has happened and a total waste of time. Just because someone loses doesn't mean they did not bust their butt off killing enemy ships etc, yet we are not rewarded we are punished.   In a game that has RANDOM moron players noone should be punished for their in ability to play this game.

245? sole survivor? are you playing Co op or Random?  because lord have mercy,  sole survivor with 245 xp even on the losing team means you didn't do diddly.

This guide will help you for sure.

 

Also, and I know it may sound rude, but being the sole survivor of your team says nothing about your performance. The sole survivor could've been hiding in the corner for the entire game, would this make him a good player, a player that would deserve more rewards?

Yeah that has to be Co-op, low tier. In Randoms even if you go full potato you get more than that. Maybe it is Ops, it pays crap if you don't get anything done...  In one mission we did every single secondary objective, I scored around 50k in damage but we lost because we couldn't get enough people to the exit. I managed 492 xp on that.... It was pathetic..

The game mechanic for this game.. this day..rewards spotting, aggression play and damage done

if you sit back and snipe without much forward movement your XP or lack of will reflect that you have to do significant damage to replace the other 2 

the idea of team play is to do whatever it takes to win the game for your team not necessarily your survival till the end

You have barely started to play - don't expect 2K XP when starting in any game.  AS others have noted - being alive at the end means nothing  as there would be many, many, many ways to manipulate the XP if being alive at the end meant something.  Low XP is in co-op according to your stats - as it should be as Co-op is a sandbox you learn to play in.  In Co-op you are not playing against random players - you are playing against bots where the average win rate if 90+%..

And the bots are far more predictable than human players. Typically, they pick one human and the entire bot fleet sails straight towards them, which can be overwhelming...

He was more just saying he was the last person alive on his team, not getting solo warrior. He did say he lost.

Something to consider:

Servicing costs are fixed by tier, regardless of how much damage or lack thereof you've taken. You don't get paid to bring your ship back. So if you want to earn more, controlled aggression is key. 

 

Die too soon, and you have shorted yourself damage and XP earning opportunities. Not being aggressive enough, and you waste those same opportunities.

 

With the potatoes I've seen lately in randoms and operations, you can't really do much about win rate. My back's been getting sore in operations carrying people with the Ryujo.

OP, if you are this frustrated after only 27 random games, this might not be the game for you. Just saying.

OP has only 40 battles and he wants to be the ultimate dude in knowledge in this game.

First if u did only 245XP at a low tier game during a loss. Trust me you played it wrong. At least 500 XP in a random match in this situation.

Being the SOLE survivor in the losing team doesnt mean [editet by me]. Being the SOLE survivor in the WINNING team is another story.

Also do u really expect to get high tier ships in only 30 days of gameplay!? :Smile_facepalm: :Smile_teethhappy:

It's a team based game (but i won't deny that even the average veterans lacks technical knowledge of the game :cap_book:) so winning a match is more important than the individual performance.

 

Now i will stay here and watch :Smile_popcorn:

 

Edit: yeah i should have been less toxic. Sry. But i will let this post untouched anyways

Guess i will move on to another game then...  I can't be aggressive as I hate getting killed (to me it proves I suck) If this game only rewards aggressive behavior it is not the game for me I am all about strategy and taking my time to kill people. I never play a class that is supposed to be aggressive and that is funny actually seeing battleships are not meant to be aggressive but the game rewards them for being just that which is so hypocritical.....  Oh well on to the next game. thanks all

If you aren't having fun, do something else.  It's not rocket science to figure that out.

The gamer that has played many types of games over the years is one that can adapt and understand another game pretty fast (only the under preforming gamer who is not really good will have issues adjusting to a new game). You all make it sound like the game is rocket science when in reality a child of 5 years old could play it with ease if they so choose to do. I simply had no idea that the game was built with a high aggression in mind I figured it was more strategic in nature requiring people to be patient and actually have to think i guess I was wrong doesn't mean my knowledge of the game overall is lacking.

OP, if you are playing just to earn credits and XP then you aren't approaching the game in the right way. Sure, XP and credits are useful for researching and purchasing new modules, skills and ships but they should not be the reason you are playing the game. The object of a game, unless you are a professional gamer (a category that I doubt many of us here fall into), is to have fun. You don't seem to be having much fun here so maybe this game is not for you.

Only problem is almost all games no a days suck it is the nature of the beast right now. All F2P games have no clue or desire to balance and all they care about is squeezing as much money out of its player base as they can.  I have also loved navel battles and this is one of the only games of this genre, but if the game company is going to make it unrealistic and not care about anything cept money I guess I will move on and wait for another game to come out that peaks my interest.

yet it is a game that has tiered ships and each one is different then the other tiered ships. I have read many post on this group of tiered ships suck just grind thru to get the higher tiered ship that is fun to play. This is the issue with tiered game play and it does turn many people away because getting to that one ship that you would find fun is more of a job then a fun hobby.

I have played this game for a year and have not paid WG a single penny. Through playing the game alone, I've received doubloons, premium time, premium ships and other benefits that they sell in their premium shop. It's amazing that they would provide a free-to-play game with so much earnable content.

There are ships where you can't be aggressive but yet can do a lot of damage - like French Cruisers.  You just need to watch videos and figure out how to play them.
