As of now it SUCKS. Bout ready to retire until summer is over. Losing a bunch. Past few nights were ugly. I sucked.  My teams sucked.  We all sucked together.....BAD.  Heh. Now I know there are players out there who are doing GREAT these summer months (I hate you) but I have been catching the clueless teams and I am not at all good enough to help them prevail. I totally admit that.  BBs not BBing.  DDs not DDing. Cruisers not cruising and killing. Just ride this out? Threaten to rage quit and compose one of those goofy "I quit" letters just in case I need it? Flush my head down toilet. Call Putin and beg him to put a stop to this? Are you having a real struggle this summer?  If so console me! :Smile_sad: 

It's not life and death but it's been frustrating. This has to change....just got to.  There, fun whine and I feel better.

So? We sucked together, even in Co-op! At least my win rate is break even at 50% for the last two weeks. Cannot complain.

I was doing over 50% in June but the poo hit the fan after July 4th.  Weird.

Took a look and you and I have almost exactly the same overall win rate. :Smile_honoring:  Carry on.

It's summer, so its natural people would go on cruises :Smile_teethhappy:.

Of course!  Makes sense. Lost one last night when a nice big spiffy BB decided to leave the critical fight around the caps and take a nice loooong cruise to kill red carrier. He was out of the game for like 5 min (red carrier was a long way away) when we REALLY needed him in the fight for the caps. Why in the hell do slow BBs do that? Let a fast DD or a cruiser do that job. This is the kinda crap I am seeing.

dmckay, how the heck are you?

play evenings mostly, and have seen you in more than a few battles. I have this spookie, other world weird capacity to bring the wrong ship, with the wrong mods, upgrades and capt's skills, to the wrong map, and select the wrong side/cap, with the wrong team mates next to me. last summer, it was clearly not ok, as there was occasionally a super unicum deep purple player that could carry the team, or an awesome div that would keep in close. (I am neither)

this summer, O M F G. while I would love to blame it on _____________ (MM, RNG, playing solo, radar, too many [edited]  islands, whatever), I have too much experience to do so. 

also, in my gaming world, I save my absolute best battle results for the PLETHORA of slaughter losses. that way, my contributions are not scored as high, and I can remain well under the 'almost doesn't completely suck like the vacuum of space radar.' (radar which is everywhere, and can see thru islands, which are everywhere)

when is the last time you carried a battle? or, in my case, have you ever carried a battle??  

I am posting my current stats, as I keep hoping WG devs will actually read something, and see how loyal I am to continue to play despite how badly I suck, and then take one of my awesome suggestions, and reward me with something fun I will actually use and enjoy.

When I get these sort of days I revert to playing lower tiers for some fun. Try it, works for me.

Nice to hear from you. I have carried a few games but not many.  I have had my moments. When I first got Scharnhorst I was tearing Reds up.  That has changed to a degree.  For some reason as of late I am constantly bottom tier ship and playing tier 8-9 ships MUCH more than I was last winter/spring. Maybe someone can tell me why.

I did last night.  Ran into a bunch of red unicorns divisions who were down in low tiers seal clubbing to juice their sacred stats. Slaughter. O well it happens.

Lol I just mainly have been focusing on doing my best, having fun, and raking in credits and Captain XP. One thing I do different during Summer is suspend the stock grinds, other than that I just play pretty normally.

You are correct. If you take a long break sometimes WG hamster powered computer deep in an underground bunker in Belorussia forgets about you.  Forgets you are programmed to lose bout 15 matches and only get 3 wins. You come back and bingo, you go on a big winning streak. :Smile_sceptic:
