How do people with almost 5,500 battles not even know the basics of damage mechanics, capping, and how the game works.

It's almost like somebody else now has the account of an experienced player.  Hmmmm. . .

There was a post the other day from someone with 10k battles, who did not know that you could use X to change your targets.  Some people just make due with what they have for a very long time and don't ask questions till its well beyond the time they should have learned.

I remember back in the early WoW (that other WoW game) days, I ran into a guy that didn't know the talent tree scrolled down, and he was asking why he had more talent points than he could spend :)

 

it happens.

Team play wins battles but rewards are geared towards individual efforts, people play for rewards, at least that is my perspective.

It's probably been going on a lot....you can do a search and see lots of accounts for sale.

I've known the basics back before I only had below 1000 battles...

I'm pretty sure (maybe... ) that guy may perhaps bought an account and didn't know the basic mechanics...

If people ask a question I am always happy to answer it

If people type (rant) at the start of their post I am more likely to leave it as they want to blow off steam.

It is when people constantly whinge about 

Being pink (includes afk and team damage posts)

OP ships they died to

Radar

Other garbage that has been repeatedly posted on here

People blaming ships on how garbage they are, and they're the ones who are garbage

People making posts that simply complain, instead of asking for help

eg. recent post about the NC

OP starts it with, this ship is garbage its this its that so on

Instead of trying it like this

I'm having trouble with using the NC, can anyone help me with what I am doing wrong with it.

The first one gets nothing but ridicule and funny memes, the second one would get people responding to help.

To be fair, the game has always been pretty terrible with tutorials and such. There's pretty much no way of learning even the basic principles of penetration, saturation, overmatching and such just from playing the game. Instead we are expected to sit through about five 40 minute iChase videos before so much as attempting something as audacious as a 'brawl' or 'kiting' or 'showing our face in front of the enemy'. Don't get me wrong- I appreciate him making the video, and for veterans like us they're very helpful in patching up our knowledge, but the game can be phenomenally hostile to new players.

 

Then again, with 5k battles I do struggle to classify this guy as 'a new player'.

The account hadn't been played for over a year according to Warships Today so that is possible.

A very old thread, but one of my favorites.  Someone with a Tier X CV that complained the other CV deleted all his planes.  A Tier X CV player not knowing what strafe was.  I suggest reading it, it's awesome.

the answer is simple, because stupidity/ignorance comes in many forms, here its in the form of players that refused to take the time to learn game mechanics and whine on the forums that the game is rigged or people are cheating

This can all be fixed if WG Forced a manual read of the game controls and all of its workings. 

In Port an access to the Rules and detailed manual of ALL CONTROLS

A Detailed Tutorial of the full controls with Pictures. {For those who can't or wont read.}

Bad play is easily found anywhere without looking hard.  An example when I was playing Star Trek Online was a fleet-mate needing help on a simple PVE mission.  She had trouble surviving despite flying a very tough ship.  I helped her complete it but watched what she was doing at the same time, watching her buff & ability cycles.  It turned out she had no idea that there were hull and shield repair abilities in the game.  I tactfully (which is rare for me) told her about these abilities afterwards and where to find them, what they each did.  It was like a veil was pulled away :Smile_Default:  The interesting part was she was around the game since launch, and by that time the game had been out like 3 years.

Here are some things I (or others) discovered very late:

  • How to change the crosshairs
  • What "alternative map view" meant... sort of
  • that you could repeat campaign objectives
  • that manual strafe was a thing (long after I gave up on CVs)
  • that you could target ships / airplanes even if you didn't have the captain skills ( it took the dunkirk missions prompting me )
  • assured target acquisition 
  • How to (sort of use) use the tick marks on the binocular view

WoWs tutorials suck. Their in-game tips suck.

Here are some things that I still struggle with:

  • using the site correctly.. what exactly do those tick marks mean.
  • how to use dynamic v. static sighting crosshairs.
  • how long do torpedoes travel in 6 seconds?
  • How does the various stats of shell velocity work? I just have to relearn every ship at the start of the battle.

I only started getting mediocre when I started watching Flamu's vids.

Yeah and buying and selling accounts while prohibited on many major games still goes on. I mean if you want to quit the game why not make some money off your account instead of deleting it?  I would never buy or sell accounts, but I can see how people would get tempted to do so.

This would help but far too many would just click through and pick up nothing.

Had 2 battles with this pink shima in ranked.

He was at B and i told him don't go C there is a DES there on the mini map.

He carries and pops his smoke seconds after i took this shot, he dies. then on the next battle we are on the same map, he goes 5km up to a GK and pops his smoke he dies.

 

He then moans in chat that smoke never works, i said the DES has radar and the GK has hydro they can see you in your smoke.

I don‘t mind them nuking all the threads, but nuking my constructive explanation on what went wrong in his match? That is just rude... :Smile_sad:
