I don't want to call myself a veteran player but i have quite a few games under my belt. unfortunately most of those games are trash.

 

Recently i made a determined effort to get my win rate up and my wtr and i made some serious progress almost 500 games where i kept my wtr in the blue and my win rate above 55%, i was playing all three classes and i was having fun.

About 2 weeks ago something changed, dramatically, and i don't know what it is. i went from having around a kraken every few days to barely able to get 100k games. i find plays i made 2 weeks ago meet with no damage done in a game or getting insta gibed because i'm off sides.

I'm not whining or asking for a buff/nerf, i am asking for help identifying what i need to do/what changed.

I'm tired of being a player with 7k games and and a wtr of 980. (please dont use warships today to check me out its completely broken beyond help)

Hills and valleys.

Everyone goes through rough spots. If you haven't changed the way you approach the game, which was netting you winning results, then you're likely just in a slump where no matter how hard you carry, you just won't win. As for not being able to get higher damage scores like before, it could either be having teammates that know how and what to shoot, leaving you with little to no HP to take for yourself, or it could be you mis-reading the flow of battle, which puts you out of position and results in not being able to do as much damage.

The best advice is likely to just ride it out. If you're looking back at what you were doing in each match and you're not finding silly mistakes like broadsiding when you could be angled, or mis-selecting ammo types, then it's probably just the opposite end of the pendulum swing.

alot of ships really, recently im playing alot more t8s and 10s because of the new missions but i dont stick to one type at all although i have been avoiding cruisers (that arent just over powered ie.kutuzov) such as the takao because of how easy it is to be deleted.

About 2 weeks ago kids got out of school for summer.

oh... that does fit the dates pretty well doesn't it.

maybe if i just play more defensively and play like an a**hat away from objectives a bit i could at least farm some damage.

I wasn't being facetious here. The variety of people that you can fight (or potato) has just entered the vacation zone. You get more damage when the enemy team is incompetent and your own is otherwise occupied. If your team is superior it will be a roflstomp. If your team is potatoe you can farm medals.

we all have off-days/weeks. Just keep your head up and learn form mistakes and you'll be fine!:fish_aqua:  or as odd-ball would say.....

Farm damage and cap when the reds are dead has been working for me recently.

I just went through 3 different phases in 2 weeks: 23-2, 13-12, and now 3-7, 39-19 overall is surely not bad, but as you can see, WR-wise, I went from super-uni to worse than a tater in just 2 weeks.

 

No matter what it is we do, we will never be able to do our purest best 100% of the time, too many factors affect us and how we perform. In this game, it's ship additions, tier changes, and many times, it's simply that a team refuses, just flat out refuses, to let you carry it to the win. While I as annoyed yesterday, and somewhat down, I know from experience that things will upswing again shortly. :)

We all go through streaks where, for whatever reason, we just can’t win or do well.

Two days ago, I was in my Guilo Cesare in a T4/T5 battle, and did only 6k damage as I got ninjaed by a Fujin. No idea that he was there, and my random turns presented a perfect broadside so I ate every single torp.

Next battle, Leander in a solidly T8 battle. At the start of the match en route towards a cap, I was spotted between two rocks, I stopped and turned, smoked up, ate 4 battleships broadsides into my puff and I died massively. Only saving grace was I got torps off into the cap circle and a DD ate one of them (but he didn’t die). 

That day, I had another 6 battles like this, in ships where I have 60% WRs. Fiji, Belfast, Gneisenau, Tirpitz (nailed by Asashio torps, did 0 damage, again turned really the wrong way at the wrong moment)...

The solution: walk away. You’re done for the day.

That sounds more like going from the peak of Mt. Everest straight to the bottom of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. :Smile-_tongue:

Well... lately my voice seems to have gotten deeper and I got hair growing in funny places. 

And girls don't seem so icky.

With the change in the USN cruisers, there were a lot of people playing the ships that may not be used to that playstyle.  That also meant quite a bit ore radar than usual.  Add summer vacation in, the Indy missions, and some players taking a break after Ranked.  A lot of elements at play recently.
