Teams Suck

Anyone else think this game would be 10,000 times better if you could form your own teams. I am so tired of loosing battle after battle cause 3/4 the teams is clueless and can't follow simple instructions. The team set up in this game makes it so you have no control over the outcome of the battle, then we are given stats to show how many wins and losses we have. Kinda like rubbing it in our face, "you could win but we stuck you with [edited] for 6 games so it looks like you can't even play". I'm about to unistall this game from my system and find something else to do.

You can division up with other people which increases your odds of effecting the outcome of a random battle.

It’s okay.  I usually get good teams, so someone has to get the bad ones, right?

And yet I anticipate that if the players had the ability to form teams, you'd complain about how these super-elite teams would keep annihilating your team.

maybe stop trying to blame everyone else for your losses and try to improve your own play? sounds crazy, i know. but it is entirely possible that you're not nearly as good as you think you are. recognizing that is the first step to getting better and fixing your mistakes.

or if you're so sure of yourself, you can always form a clan and try your hand at clan battles. you get to pick your team and everything. the only downside is that the enemy teams get to pick their teams too. real shame, that is.

I completely understand how the OP feels.  I find myself ranting at my monitor at least 3 times a week over a bad series of teams.

The one thing that might be nice is if MatchMaker took experience into account when making a match.

You know, like say a match where people had less than 50 games in that particular ship, or more than 200. Or a match where only 2000+ game players were there (or the inverse).

 

There's a lot more things that Matchmaker could take into consideration, but WG seems completely against making ANY changes.  :Smile_amazed:

I would look at your game play first before bashing on the teams. I rather not call you out but I suggest you be more helpful to your team but 35k avg damge in a t8 CA and 30k In a t9 CA is not helping your teams

Experience don't mean that much. You could be a 10k game veteran and still suck playing ships.

True, but there's a direct correlation between experience and being good.

Don't see very many good players at under 500 games. Conversely, the percentage of good players at 5000+ is MUCH higher.

It's not a guarranty, but it's a pretty good metric.

As part of it's premium package I really think WG should set up a toll-free hotline for people in need of a sympathetic ear.

Free-to-Play users would have to use the 1-900 number, of course.

Yep. Same here. I'm 11 for 13 today.

Maybe he's just been playing on the teams we fought today?

 

 

But seriously, OP: you want to find good teams? Make friends. Join a clan. Play clan battles. Your clan will put together the best possible lineup that they can possibly manage to take into battle. If you're able to make friends and find a clan, and if they think you're good enough, then you'll be able to be part of the best team that they can field, and matchmaking will be putting you against other teams who have reached the same level that yours has. There won't be anything in it about ship types or ship tiers... just two teams who are putting their best players out there to try and kick some butt.

Of course, for some people there are challenges in "making friends" and "finding a clan," and that's not even considering meeting their standards of "being good enough."

Have you considered joining a clan? It's easier to carry in a division.

I'm sorry, but that just doesn't cut it.  There are many battles where your team gets massacred and no super unicum would be able to carry all that dead weight on his back.  Maybe if the game is close, then perhaps an improvement in one's own abilities might make a difference.  But whether you like or not, far too many games are just not close enough that the improving the skills of a single player on the losing team would make the slightest difference.

 

Having said all that, I still think that players should seek to improve their skills so that when you do get into those situations where the actions of a single player can make a difference and that single player put in that situation is you, that you're ready to step up to the challenge and beat the other guy.

No, sadly I did not. Like I said: I was busy with clan battles at 1700, and it took a while to get 12 of those in. I only played one non-clan battle today. But seriously, I really really really am tempted to invite him to our discord server and set up a training room. Just the recording of the conversation alone would be well worth the time spent. Think of all the hits on youtube! That could launch me on a career bigger than Jingles.

The two where he directly was calling me out did get locked, yes. The original one is still alive and well, somehow, with nothing deleted from it.

... and of course, just in case they were to be deleted, I made sure to keep copies in the Wayback Machine, because, I mean, seriously, it would be a shame for that many lulz to just vanish into the ether. I don't have no noob sign pinned to my jerkin while I'm gammin, after all.

The third/original or whatever didnt have your name in it so it wasnt locked via the 'name and shame' rules.

I remember getting a thread locked because I mentioned someone in the title way back when and it was complimentary. *shrug*

Hell I got a thread locked here recently because I called the French the wrong ribbit hopping word.

 

Anywhoodles that's an aside to our above friend's lack of wins.
