Had a Shima in my last battle that was so bad that I though it was a bot. After inspecting it's profile I confirmed that this is definitely a low win rate player. But the most amazing thing is the ships played. This player has 5 Tier X ships but only 24 total ships played. this means that they mostly used free XP to get to tier X. With a 39.29% win rate this absolutely proves that the only way to improve your win rate is skill and experience. Please don't skip the lower tiers. it's only going to Handicap you and who wants to always lose games like this? Premium ships are great for earning credits and training your Captains. They are not Pay2win boats and nothing teaches you the mechanics of this game more than learning each line as you progress.

You keep saying "P2W", I don't think this term means what you think it means.

I know exactly what it means. This game is not Pay2win. Buying a premium ships doesn't give you skill or experience. It's they only way to win in this game. The point of the article is to point this out.

Its apparently not that rare.  I played with a Gearing yesterday that did the smoke into cap and sit in smoke thing you see quite a bit at lower tiers.  The guy had less than 200 battles in tech tree ships and more premium ships than tech tree ships played.  I don't remember if the gearing was his only tier 10 but he definitely had 2-3k battles almost entirely in tier 8 premiums.

If at first you don’t succeed, free XP another.

I should know, I watched the movie like two weeks ago.

Was it engaging in a land war in Asia?

*checks*

Yes. Yes it is.

Correct.

The only possible candidates for Pay-2-win have already been removed from sale, and even they are not invincible or guarantees of victory.

The only time I would free-XP past difficult ships (e.g. Emerald) is if I were starting a second account and jumping past ships I had already ground out in full. I did admittedly bypass the T3 and T4 US battleships with free XP, but that was because my eldest offspring desperately wanted to see me play in carriers.

Haven't tried to push past the Colorado yet, but I only needed about 20 battles in the New Mexico to unlock it. I expect higher tiers take longer, but it feels like people think the grind is longer than it really is. 

And yes, since I switch to the Colorado and Arizona I've gone maximum potato, though its precise coordination with July's "win battles" event makes me wonder if 5k+ players have been down-tiering for easier wins...

ROFLMAO, yep...NEVER get in a land war in Asia. Only slightly less well known is never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.

No, my contribution to this thread is informing the player population that you are someone who can't even be bothered to take the time to be sure his posts are correctly spelled. If you can't even be bothered to tale that much pride in your thoughts, why should anyone else take them seriously?

Oh, and your meme would be more properly applied to your original post.

@EasternSun Thanks for taking the time to point this out as if most of us did not realize this! Not! Whatever the player mentioned does or does not do IS THEIR BUSINESS and none of us should have any interest in THEIR BUSINESS.

Feel free though to check my profile and report here on me if you should ever feel the need in the future to broadcast another's affairs.

I Captain Harcourt Fenton Mudd XX Look forward to setting your Sun on the Deep Blue SimuSeas!

That is all! Carry on!

Players like this make the game Free2Play for other players.

Be happy they spent as much money as they did. And sad they are on your team...

I have a 33% win rate in Bayern and I have never bought a ship. But I do agree in general with your observations.
