Is there really any point to "team play"?

I just had a game where everyone on my side was sunk including myself. I was last man standing in my Helena but got sunk too. The other team had 9 ships left.

Seriassly? wth? :etc_swear:

That's just one example. I have had 5 losses in a row now.

There are so many games where you look up 5 minutes into the game and half your team is gone while the other side maybe has 2 sunk.

I'm fairly new to the game, so I might be way off base commenting, and if so, my bad. If you're whole side got sunk, and they lost one boat, maybe that's a very solid argument on the point of team play.

Yup, lack of teamplay is precisely what causes those. A well played team of newbies could easily beat a team of decent players who aren't using teamwork. ( results may vary )

If one person can swing the tide, provided all ships are still floating around on both opposing teams in random mode. Then this game would be heavily tilted towards solo players, period.  However, since it is not. Team play is paramount, no matter the circumstance. i.e. communicating to a player, where as a slow BB. You ask a DD (or a faster, closer situation ship) to cap whilst you're trying to close the gap at full speed.

Communication, Communication, Communication. Plan. Execute.

someone needs to stop playing and bringing his team down for a while.....
accepting blame is a good place to start....
WHy did the other 11 players not post this issue and stand out asking "WHY ME?....."


WHY??? 
Because they are as guilty as YOU for losing a game... two games and five games....

Just like no one ever questions why their team WON five games in a row... no explanation for that... how does this even happen...

and its funny that of all the "MM SUCKS AND RIGS MY GAMES CONSTANTLY TO LOSE EVERY GAME" threads we see, there should be just as many counter threads to that argument posting "MM LOVES ME AND I NEVER EVER LOSE EVER" thread...

wins are all YOU

losses are the entire team......
Being better than you are would be a great place to start looking for answers... Hiding makes you look more guilty than you are... although I found that as difficult to believe than I do that your teams are your problem..

do a little research and you will find that is not exactly the problem he is having... its a very old historical issue that keeps popping up now and then.... its a wonder the battle button gets clicked anymore as it is

Ah, OP, you do realize this is an arcade FPS......  First person isn't "us" it is "I"....  There are no teams; just collections of FPS's who may or may not help each other.  May, being the operative word.  And, does it really matter if you win or lose?  It's a FPS and what you do is yours.......not somebody else's problem.

If they wanted Random "teams", there'd be a VOIP so we could actually talk to each other.......  Do you see a VOIP for the 12 player random battles.  You can't type and play at the same time.......

Sorry OP you're losing......that really is yucky.  Unfortunately, the other 11 on your "side" are in it for themselves and themselves only.  Such are F2P meritocracies that throw "teams" out there as something to do because 1x1 FPS's are boring as heck.

I feel for you man.....losing all of the time sucks even worse when there is nothing you can do to make it better...

Blow out seal clubbing happens. Some times you will be the seal and some times you will be one of the clubbers.

Maybe I'm wrong but if you lose all the time, someone else is winning all the time. Ask em what they're doing right.

Guys, wait a minute.  If Blasto is being serious here, we may have witnessed him go through a rite of passage.

Hahahaha. Blasto, you've outdone yourself here. 

Yes, of course we need teams. How else would Red get XP?

@TheGreatBlasto of course there is but expecting that from a group of random players who probably do not know any of their 11 team mates nor any of the 12 opponents is not reasonable. So you lost 5 in a row! Is that really such a big deal? Did you have to Call 911 or drink some Malox of run to the toilet for a flaming blowout?

Just do the best you can and appreciate an occasional win and don't fret over any loss!

I'm not losing all the time! LOL

I also have games where we wipe out the other team in 10 minutes.

My point is tactics seem irrelevant when people just go for the kill.

Then to me you answered you're own question. Work together, WIN. No teamwork, get smashed.
