...just a plain pain,match after match. Is it all the school kids ,,or why the game experience is so bad on the weekends? I mean there's just no middle way here,,you are either in a very bad team,,where the enemy barely loses a single ship,,or you are in the other side,,but that`s no fun either.... It`s not really about winning or losing,i don`t mind to lose,as long as it`s a good game...  But when  out of the whole team, only 2 or max 3 ships knows where to go, and how,,and the rest just ..blah.... I figured long ago,that even on weekdays,,if you play in the morning,,or at noon,,or late night,,the chances are a lot better,that you gonna have a better game experience.,than like between 5PM-and 9PM...?

The weekends involve a meta shift. It's not a big shift, but it's enough to throw off a lot of players. An easy way to still win on the weekends is to play ships that can hard carry big time, or division to reduce the amount of random factors on your own team.

To answer your question:

>Is there any positive thing about to play on the weekends?

Yes. There are more players on the server, which makes the odds of playing T5 and not being uptiered +2 much better; (with luck you'll be top tier or uptiered to T6 if at all).

To balance that, potatoes abound.

I hear you. Division up should help, i know. As to pick a ship,that can handle the situations,where there is either  not much or none help at all ,from your team-mates? I actually pick some of my mid-tier ships ,,where i can`t lose credits,or worthy signal flags,camos.....

Not really.  At least with random teams, you still may have a 50/50 chance of getting on a decent enough team to win.  With your grammar, it seems like there are multiple errors in every line.

I say it all the time OP.  It's a dice roll on weekends.  You can win big or catch a long string of loses. It's just how it is with lots of casual players BUT they have the right to play just like anyone else. Just accept it. Hell, you could get a team with me on it.....and that can be disastrous! :Smile_sad:

Is there anything positive to weekend play?  Sure.  Being able to play for many more hours, if you have the free time.  Honestly, it seems to me that the people who complain hardest about weekend play are those who are more worried about stats than they are about having some fun while competing and trying to win.  I'm not a "don't care about winning, justd play for fun" type.  I play to compete.  And I don't let weaker weekend teams get in the way, because frankly I'm not anal about stats.

Just to be a jerk on this subject.... Weekenders are human..... These Humans have placed Zero Value on W/R, they placed the Value on their own game and the pewpewpewpew. This can also be said during the week,only not so evident. The way I see it the weekends are not for Stat Chasers {to unpredictable}. I play everyday of the week and don't really care for the W/R.  50% is dead middle and I am  on both sides of it any given week . If you blame others for poor games , Remember when you point the finger at them three are pointing back at you.

Upside:

Well, technically there is supposed to be lots of bad players.
So you should be able to win/carry far more games than usual as the only "gud" player.

 

The downside:

If you get beaten often by these bad players and come crying about it, you are revealed as a "extra bad" and a whiner.

No,i`m not talking about stats and winning. I`m talking about the lemming train,,the dds sitting behind islands and not scouting-spotting,BBs off the map in pursuit to be as far from enemy fire as possible,,and etc... I`m all for team play,,more often would sacrifice my ship,than play it safe. And team play is what mostly missing on the weekends. All these of course ,happens on weekdays too,,but not nearly as often as now. I know it`s a rant,,kinda,,but it is so frustrating as hell..

I fail to see how this differs from any other weekday.

The weekends always bring on a new challenge.  Happens every weekend and usually starts around 3-4 PST on Friday.  You just adjust your expectations and play accordingly.  We all know the kids are coming.  Sometimes you deal with total fail teams..and sometimes you can just clean up on taters.  It is just a couple of days. 

 

Let the kids have their fun is my take on it.

Most of these "humans" are kids..  My kid plays.  Honestly you are totally right in that they don't care about WR or stats..  They just like to jump in ships and PEW.  But..  They have fun and games are supposed to be fun.  I have learned to adjust expectations on weekends.  Not sure how people that have played this game for any length of time can't wrap their heads around that.

help new players by playing more of t3/t4 premium  ships with  19 point captains.    it will get the new players use to the meta so they will behave appropriately.

It's not little kids... It's not-generally-gamer weekend warriors who don't read chat or do anything but lemming and yes it's [edited]awful that's why I've been playing Shadow of War all day today after last night.

Great thing about the weekends:

All teams get the same weekend potatoes on average.

Nothing insulting about being a Millennial. Statistically they're the most productive, well educated, and most cultured generation we've ever had. Only bad thing is they're also destined to be the poorest in nearly 100 years.

Not sure what stat's you are looking at....   But Ok.  How you can be the most educated and productive and still be the poorest..  That should call into question the validity of those stats.  Most educated meaning we have a high number of people with Master's degrees in 16th century lit?   Also carrying huge student loan debt for their useless degrees?  I will admit the coffee house baristas are very well spoken.  God help any one of them if they needed to get any dirt under their nails.

The problem with the weekend is there is a shift between doing battle on certain maps a particular way versus the hail marry it turns into more noticeably doing the weekends. There's probably some confirmation bias in this determination but you get my meaning. 

Typically a team will generally shake out in a certain predictable fashion- or they won't... Weekend or otherwise we've all had battles of both types.  

Some players insist on continuing the play a map the way they think is right- regardless of what the overall distribution of ships is at the beginning of battle, 2 minutes in, 5 minutes in etc. They want to go AB because any sane person with more than 2 brain cells to run together in that situation is going to know without a doubt that AB is the only way to win. In my imaginary scenario AB is the winning option, so our imaginary player wants to go AB and starts heading that way. Problem is, part of the team is going to C and the other part is heading for the NE corner of the map because it's a division that wants to take fleet screenshots of their ships in formation with the carrier (not making this up.) 

So while our imaginary player stubbornly plods into A to get killed in the first 5 minutes then ask about why people on the weekends are so stupid, others will find opportunities within the most favourable of the 2  groups, park themselves in that group and shoot until they die. Sometimes they'll catch a cap... other times they'll sink a ship. They may even win the battle. 

But being unable to adapt to what the situation requires makes us the weak link since we should know better and they clearly don't.
