Well multiple losses, i mean multiple as in the majority. Our team was so messed up in one game that one of our Missouri's was shooting at one of our own destroyers because the destroyer wasn't doing what the BB wanted him to do. Yeah, we didn't win that game either :Smile-angry:

I'm in my scharny and the consensus on the team is "B C" - everyone gives a wilco.  of course there's an idiot in a cruiser who decides to go the other way.  everyone tries to coax him into compliance but he ignores the team.  as he passes me I drop a couple of torps into him.  he never said anything but whipped around and chased me into battle.  don't know what his intent was, but at least he went the right direction :D 

 

I don't condone shooting teammates.  I know I shouldn't have.  I lost my cool.  but it felt GOOD.

50% bare win rate Friday to Sunday, so I minimized my exposure by playing ships that I am grinding to get to T10, and making enough credits to pay for the grind with my premiums. After that I slummed in co-op and killed bots. Weekends are nothing but a hassle in random game play for average players.

I just usually don't do well on weekends. Just don't.  Too dicey.  Some do fine. I am just a very average player. I need a decent team (just a "decent" team) cause I usually can't carry a very bad one. Not me....nope. No way.

Plenty of those games this weekend where 3 minutes in you are looking around saying "where did my team go" ( Blown up sir..), where the only consolation is that you were in the top two in a dismal defeat, where all you want is just the daily win bonus for a ship you are grinding, but denied each time ( 5 times to be exact) and you give up for the night

I really don't see much of a difference between weekend and weekday play.  Might just be my lack of perception.

 

However, I do see a difference late at night.  Seems many of the better players are on late at night, particularly clans.  This doesn't change the win percentage much, as I'm just as likely to be on the mash team vice the potato team.  And there are some games where the unicums balance out and the game is close.

 

I also bounce around between tiers and ships and that breaks trends up a bit.

Saturday was 55% win rate. Sunday was horrible. 10 games with 1 win. Ever since this last season of ranked ended I can't seem to hit anything.

Well darn, sounds like your weekend was worse than mine, although I had to laugh about your MO shooting your own DD and the reasoning.  We had one match where someone said they would shoot cowards.  They were already pink so I guess we know how it happened.  Anyway, any ship that stayed near the Spawn was blasted by him until he himself was blown up by the reversed damage.  It was interesting to say the least but at least we still won.

Heh, happened to me too. I was playing my Fletcher and went towards cap C on Northern Lights, until I spotted an enemy Baltimore setting up on the other side of the island, so I wisely bailed off the cap after launching torps and taking a few hits. Meanwhile, our Yamato, who went near C but began sailing away behind the safety of the island is screeching at me to cap. I circle back around to hit C again while the Yamato continues to screech at me but I play it very cautiously. Too cautiously, I guess, because our Yamato fired his rear turret at me for not complying, 9k damage. Then the radar I was concerned about went off and I got railed by a Zao, boom, dead. It was about 6 minutes into the game and I already had 112k damage from my torps, and then we ended up losing. 

 

Not gonna lie, I spilled a ton of salt in chat while the Yamato went silent. :etc_swear:

Friday 50%.

Saturday... was bad.  One game, after dying like a true potato, I watched a Gearing leave a cap to sail back to spawn to shoot at a Tirpitz that I guess he felt needed to get moving.  They shot each other, both turned pink.  Then the gearing drove into the Tirpitz's torps, causing the flooding damage to reflect.  Tirpitz sank.  In the meantime, red team took all 3 caps. 

Rest of the matches, I scored top 3 at least on my team and kept losing anyway.

Sunday 60+%.

 

It's really all over the place...

lol! I'm not sure where shooting our own team mates is a viable option but apparently it was the most common option :)

Wasn't me (I'd have sunk you) but I don't follow teams to BC when I think it's dumb.  Once upon a time I used to think that a bad plan was better than no plan, but those days are behind me.  Now, I'm going to go where 9k games of experience tells me I should be, and if that's the wrong call so be it.  There are too many idiots in this game to ignore my intuition and lemming along.

This is the difference between you and I Crzyhawk. Your stats prove that your intuition does you pretty good. When I do as you describe it is normally me and a very small ship facing the majority of the other team. And me in a BB, well there is not enough water to put out all the fires that I get trying to get out of there. :)

Was pretty good, actually.

 

Took a break from grinding and dusted off some old T5's to try and compete in Kelorn's damage contest.  Didn't beat the impressive record of 142k damage by a Minekaze captain, but had some very solid 70k+ damage games in Omaha, Furutaka, and Kirov.

 

Trying to perform like that in the fishing boat T-22, well that didn't quite go as well :Smile_hiding:

Not bad at all, I think I won 17 from 22 games over Saturday and Sunday. Sadly, back to my usual by Monday.

Friday was alright.  Saturday was treacherous.  Sunday?  I had a few good wins out of 5, but stopped while I was ahead.

Saturday was brutal. Stopped after 5 games at 0% win rate. Worst results I had in a very long time due to the match not being long enough to really do anything. Felt like CoOp with every player racing to the middle. I lost count how many times players just went in for the ram at the start of the battle. It really looks like players using bot programs.

 

Every match I was in did not last for over four minutes. Every team both sides showed horrendous game play from the Saipan that races to C to cap at the start :cap_rambo: to the only two DD on the team that race the 9 line to snipe the CV :Smile_facepalm: (it was a Tier 9 and 10 game not low tiers).

I'm not an average player but any means and can carry a match, but you can't carry a team that has 3/4 of the player base die within the first three minutes of a match. :Smile_teethhappy:

 

Sunday was fine and was able to have good normal exciting matches. Some weekends you can have real good matches then some days like I experienced Saturday you can have potato players, bots, or both. I got the double serving.

Friday had a great 110k damage battle in my Benson. Great start to the USA bonus weekend.

 

Saturday was mixed, but ended the day on the positive side of the win column.

 

Sunday just plain sucked. RNG was not with me and I watched many times as perfectly aimed salvos straddled my target, never once touching it.

You know how irritating it is to get those shots lined up nicely, see those shells heading right to that middle citadel area of your target, only to blow away the ocean on either side, never touching the ship.

 

yeah, that was how I ended it on sunday after 5 battles....

The weekday matches can get boring as everyone tries to max out their respective meta, sits perfectly angled, and plays intelligently.  Frankly I love the unpredictability of the weekend.  I was in my Yamato when an Atago thought it would be smart to turn broadside so he could torpedo me at ~9km away.  He learned a lesson that day and I had some nice damage numbers.  Other times the entire team YOLOs up the middle in the Brothers map and goes down in a blaze of glory.  So yes, while quality of play is noticeably worse on the weekends, the LOLs definitely make up for it.

Other point about weekends is if you're a fairly good player, you need to play a carry-boat.  If you're playing T7, you can't be in a Yorck for instance.  While you can do some nice damage, you won't be able to single-handedly win the game if you're in a cruiser.  You've gotta be in a Scharnhorst or a DD to make a real impact, particularly at the end of the game.

Just came back from 10 day vacation. Decided to pay 2 games yesterday.  0-2  on 2 bad teams where non scouted so half the time didn't have a target to shoot at. still had 78K avg damage but had to do most of my own scouting. Also usual moves like whole team but a few go to the correct 2 caps called out at beginning. I know this will never change BTW.
