Why are you consistently at the bottom of the XP list this weekend?

Win/lose not relevant, you're always on the bottom...

Hard to earn XP in the back while Cruisers and DD's do all  the actual work.

It could be because newer players gravitate toward battleships, because bigger is better, right? You never mentioned BB lvl or was this across the board, because I don't generally see this phenomenon at tier 8 and above.

I didn't see this.

I've been playing my New Mexico and recently got my first couple matches in with my new Colorado.  With all the CV's, DD's, CL's, and Fast BB's, I'm lucky to land a handful of hits before everyone scatters.  And I'm a brawler, thank you. I get in mid-range and slug it out.

Let me guess. You main DD's, dash in early, toss some skill walls in the water from cloak, then run off. Then start complaining and demanding support when you get spotted for six seconds and take 200 damage.

I often see BB making their way to the top 5 XP earned simply by staying at long range and using their DD and CA as meatshield. 

 

I had a game where our Montana had a Kraken and start complaining about how crapour team was. He was basically staying 15km behind the fleet sniping low life target. The frustrating part is : he was among the top 3 despite doing nothing while our DD and CA who actually played to win where in the top 5.

 

Well it's not like WG is promoting stupid play anyway

BBs damn sure don't support Cruisers. I just had a battle where I joined up with 2 BBs to support them. A DD was detected and I went after the DD. The friggin BBs took off running and 2 Red Team CAs showed up and with the DD I was hunting's help, wasted me. If those chickensh*t BBs hadn't run off and supported the CL (me) that was supporting them, we may have nailed all 3 of those Red botes. This crap happens all the time.

As a DD main I’m not perfect but one of the games we lost this happened, the BBS chickened out as soon as the reds showed up. Flank lost, bbs camp spawn and think they played well. There are plenty of good BB players out there, which is why I div with one when in my DD but you can only do so much.

Funny, since I've been on the front lines in my BBs, and all of the cruisers keep huddling behind islands or hiding in smoke screens.

It’s not like all BB players are total [edited] and all cruisers and destroyers are unicums.  There is plenty of poor play to share among all ship types, but BBs gets screwed the most if their team fails to support them.  Simply because they are big slow targets that have trouble disengaging when out of position.  So I don’t blame extra caution on BB player part, but everything has be in moderation of course.

Rational and fair.  BUT BBs really irk me at times. :Smile_teethhappy:  Some great..........some just bad. Depends. They do catch a lotta crap.....some unfair. Lots unfairer. Good BB players are game winners.  IMO too many play fearful for too long. Ya get a red team with all ships advancing and you can get stomped.....BBs can do this.

It's also not fair to have same expectations for all battleships.  GK works very well for aggressive push into close quarters, but Conqueror will melt on first heal CD if it tries to push.  I am not saying Conqueror has to stay at max range, but it has to dance on the edge of detectability range as long as there are enough enemy ships in front that can shred it up close before they can be killed.  Montana and Yamato are situational, but there are always timing issues to pull of an aggressive push, and both of them will get punished severely if they flinch.

You should probably get better at the game than you are before you start whining about other peoples play style. Just sayin'.

I mostly play T10/T9, although Giulio Cesare is often too tempting to resist...

And yet you don't see me whining about others play styles. Try to use a little of that gray matter when you read a post why don't ya.
