Is there a running competition for worst team NA that I don't know about?

Lately I have seen a new kind of stupid in teams. Like, I've had bad teams from time to time, but never as consistently as I have been having in the last 2 weeks. 

 

Take last night for example. 1 game, I had 5 cruisers(all but one) hiding behind the same island. Now you might think they were firing over it. But no. They were hiding from DDs, that the only cruiser that wasn't hiding had radared. But soon died because he didn't have help. 

 

Or when I was playing my Mo. I radared 2 very low health DDs. Did anyone kill them? Nope. I was being escorted by a cleve and balti. Who BOTH thought shooting HE at their monty was more important. BUT. it wasn't just them. No one else but me and the other BB was me were ever even shooting at the DDs all game. Guess what happened? Yup, we both were torped to death, along with all the other BBs. Easy loss.

There are good days and bad days in World of Warships...as well as any other game that requires teamwork from human beings. 

If you're frustrated, take a break for a few hours and then log back in later.

I wish some of the guys you’re describing were on the enemy team against me in my DD!! :cap_haloween:

i swear I could be in cap with a teammate with 1hp, in an easier to hit location than me and my PT will go from 1-7 immediately and my teammate will survive whereas I’ll get deleted!!!

Been mentioned in quite a few threads over the summer, but it did not start this summer. There's been a rapid decline in player skill since Christmas. If you check your teams after battle you'll find quite often that the majority of players are 46% or below and of that group quite a few are sub 44 even sub 40. A year ago-ish and before, an average pubbie was deemed 48-50% wr but today it seems that 44 is the new 48. Why is this? I dunno, people are just treating games as a pastime now and not giving one hoot about the competitive aspect of games basically turning a MMO in to a single player experience for them where the rest of the team around you isn't really there and it doesn't matter any way. This has been part of a longer shift that's going back years where oldskool gamers and gaming have been replaced, totally, by casual gaming where "There is no 'team' in I" instead of the reverse. We just have to accept it as it is, or move on, nothing we can do.

Go on a hiatus for a week or two. That is what I did after a week of failure.

Yes, my worked so hard for 48% has dropped to 47.9% again:fish_palm:despite my best efforts, due to at least two consecutive strings of 6 or 7 straight defeats, as well as another string 6 or 7 battles in it, but with one victory in it.

 

You cursed tomatoes! STOP RUINING MY(formerly average) WIN RATE!

But, if everyone doesn't bunch behind a island, how do I get a Double Strike with the wall of skill?

Oh, you mean in the same epic way that a Yugumo did?

I had some pretty crappy games last night, you might be on to something OP.  I just got my Moskva a few days ago and have been taking it out nightly to get used to her.  I managed a game where I dealt around 27k damage, no cap or defense points, and like 1.5mil potential damage.  I ended up in 5th place by exp on my team.  I played an absolutely horrible game and I was still better than half of my team.  I don't see this getting any better over the weekend.

Most of my matches have been blow outs(probably 75%) the last week or so.    had a match today last around 5-6 min, and that is with the 2 or so min of sailing forward towards the enemy.

This has happened to me, too, on several occasions over the past few days.(though not last night)

I suppose this isn't the place to mention my seven game winning streak (4 Random, 3 Ranked) that included a 2800+ base xp game for Gearing?

The other thing it might have been, (and I have noticed this a lot) is that they saw a good player use that spot.

The difference is, the good player used that spot because it gave him a good firing position at the enemy. (it wasn't the actual spot that was important, but where he was in relation to the enemy) 

Those 5 that used that spot didn't realise that, and went there because they think it's a good spot to wait for the enemy to come along.

Well someone has to win all of these games we are losing.  Kudos to you!

It's now up to nine games. My next two wins were both very nice games in my Grozo.

Agree, someone must be on the other side of this right?

Well i had 8 losses in a row and is thinking of uninstalling the game, I mean if wargaming wants me to invest in the game then i would do it if i had more then a share of wins then losses, but as it stands, why should i spend money on a game that will toss me in a match with players who are very good, know how to hide, know when to torp and of course, god like carrier players, while my side is stuck with noobs who rush out in DD's, fire guns, get spotted then don't even smoke up but just sit there and die?  Or in a match where all the CA's rush one side and die by BB fire?  At this point, why should I continue to support a game when I get teams like this.

Oh good. They are all in ranked now!!!!

Make that I have lost 9 matches in a row now, considering that no one in a tier 7 match went back to defend the flag from a Fiji, a Dallas and a DD, instead they all ran from the base.
