so, if you don't do any dmg, you get zero reward even if you cap. FYI

In the training room?   You don't get any reward or pay any repairs

It was a random battle, and IMHO the OP has every right to be angry about this. I would be.

Yeah, that’s garbage. Caps should always be rewarded, even if that’s all that you do.

Have to agree, why would he get 0 reward for doing his job?

Agreed, cappin always results in XP and coin, even if you have no support and get dead.

Have noticed some glitches in this patch.

Capping is a multiplier, not a base value. All you need to do is connect one shell on an enemy ship and you get the rewards.

The changed to this mechanic a long time ago for some reason. Can't remember why. Something to do with afk or something. I guess they figure if you dmg someone then it's legit idk.

If I'm not misremembering, every Ribbon has a reward value to it, but it's a multiplier rather than a base reward. Just dealing even 1 point of damage should instantly grant you some XP/Credits, even if it's not much.

I myself have claimed a few caps and took zero damage the whole match but got some rewards just for landing a single torpedo the entire match, since when I'm badly uptiered at times in a Harekaze, I just end up silently tailing enemies and keeping them lit or going for isolated caps. I also get some pity points off damage dealt by allies to enemies I've kept spotted. Heck; I was even escorted by a daring Missouri, who racked up an impressive score due to simply following behind me enough to keep piling the damage onto a Lion or Conqueror that wanted to go silent and run away to heal up, and took me from last to 5th to last just from tailing most of the match and landing a lone torpedo or two.

it was 170k  silver cost lesson         if CV becomes more common, you are going to see this type of thing even more as they can easily delete DDs.

People were making bots that would just sail towards a capture zone. See, at that time, if you got caps, you still got rewards.

Now, you're also supposed to get XP and credits if you just move a certain amount of km in a battle, and, before this patch, I experienced a 0 damage battle and still got rewards for it, so it should be working.

I don't get it- I've seen people get XP just from sailing around. Even getting killed gets you some XP because you are rewarded for potential damage, and you got potential AND spotting damage. Just being the first to spot ships should get you at least something. Either this is a glitch, the image is a fake or it's in training room.

Having been on the CV side of this equation, I can tell you that that happens much less rarely than people claim it does. Sure, Hak can kill DDs pretty easily, but that's a lot of wasted potential firepower.

  I can accept that CVs are strong against DDs in the spotting department, but CVs don't just delete DDs left and right.

look at it this way:

170k creds and 2 minutes time for 10 det flags. I would pay that daily!

it wasn't a det, so I didn't get anything.      and while CV deletion isn't common, I've been on the receiving end often enough when driven by unicum CV driver.

My favorite thing to do in meh Saipan is to go blappity blap a dd early/mid/late in a match. And it does happen quite regularly. It's very hard to do in a Saipan since you don't have but three torps in your two squads... but it's very doable. And it radically changes your teams prospects for the better.

That gets harder at higher tiers when Gearing and Grozovoi are monsters when specced for AA, and you don't know if that smoke cloud also hides a Minotaur.

When I'm playing Midway, I'm very hesitant about attacking a destroyer unless I know that there isn't a nasty surprise sitting just outside of air-detection range.

Sooo  a CV driver does zero damage and contributes next to nothing to the team - especially at tier 8 - gets deleted and is complaining that he got nothing out of it?


Sounds to me like WG did something correctly.


For a change.

Cap doesn't reward you enough since they nerf it to "encourage DD player to not rush cap and only cap" . 

 

But even if cap doesn't reward you, you SHOULD have received something for taking down 2 planes. 

 

Well it's WG idea of balans after all

Last I checked, Chung Mu is not the name of a CV.
