As an Alpha player with a ton of experience:

People hate BBs because they are super powerful ships that can make a ship ton of mistakes, and not pay the price that the other 3 ship types do for those mistakes. Despite all of this, BBs seem to be a class that people struggle to do the very basics well in. And too be fair, this is likely not very different than other ships, but gets noticed more because BBs are simply alive longer.

However, the big problem is that the longer survival time should come with quicker improvement over a similar number of games. Battleships are the most binary ships in the game, you have guns, armor, and HP. Understanding how those all work together is rather simply at the most basic level, and not difficult to grasp.

Despite all of this BBs seem to be the most reluctant ships in the game to put themselves into harms way, and fight at ranges not only at determent to themselves, but to those of their team mates. They seem to do so simply to avoid being damage despite having them most Repair Party uses available to them on top of being the best protected ships with the most HP.

If someone cannot play a BB well, it becomes very difficult to understand how they could function in a Cruiser or DD.

So if you're in a Battleship, and have failed after 100 games to grasp the very basic fundamentals of armor angling, and fighting well inside of max range, with very basic positioning, then you can expect frustration from your team mates.

We all want to have fun, but you cannot expect people to be happy if you're actively harming their own ability to enjoy themselves by acting as a gigantic anchor on their ability to do damage, capture objectives, and win as well.

You need to knock off the Donald J Trump talk, your not spose to talk about Religion on the forums. We venerate those locks of hair on our God emperors head, most prized relic one day!

Easy there, Mr. Big Bad Wolf.  His list was better.  

Personally, I like to call 'em out in chat whenever I'm sailing a BB...probably 5-10km in front of them, cursing RNG.  Seriously.  The number of broadside cruisers saved by dispersion from their own stupidity has led me to the conclusion that if you somehow manage to get devastated by a BB you absolutely deserved it.  Meanwhile, I'll just continue to gobble citadels hits while angling, adjusting speed, using my rudder, etc.  Wait...sorry...what were we talking about again?

And do more damage on a per hit basis.  And start more fires.

#8 Not true.  You have to find out where the "retired" NY bagel bakers retired to.  You will find good bagels there.

Chicago pizza, OTOH, yer on yer own.

#5 Only 60 grand?  Where you sending them to, state school?  Better to let them get a job.  Most colleges will ruin a mind nowadays.  I'd say #5 BB's cause panic in "safe spaces".

I must disagree. There are no bad BBs, just bad BB players... Like the ones that hide in the back and end up full health when the game is all but over...those make me sad. :Smile_sad:

I'd love some BBs... and a gun to shoot them with... at that dang squirrel who ate all my peaches this summer!

Oh wait, are we talking about the same thing?

Reason 11.

85% of BB drivers couldn't shoot their way out of a wet paper bag, drooling on themselves while driving in circles 20 km from the nearest enemy.

Well, in the time I've been playing this game, I have found you can make similar accusations against all the classes of ships.

DDs YOLOing at the start of a match and being erased early... happens nearly every match.

Cruisers farming damage off a BB at range, while an enemy DD is less than half the distance from the cruiser, and it is ignored, until the torps are too close to dodge...

CVs...  I see far more incompetent CV play than BB play, and this hurts the team far more than a BB just shooting at max range all game, as the CV is really the most powerful ship in the game, and a good CV player can obliterate any ship in the game at his leisure.

Nope, bad play is not class specific at all.

I can't, live too close to my neighbors.  But I like to tell my own "You know you're a redneck" joke about my wife's uncle.  "You know you're a redneck when you're wife complains about the .22 shell casings you left in the sink, from shooting at the squirrels while going to the bathroom".  Yeah, for real he would be sitting on his throne doing his business, and would shoot at squirrels on his property out of his bathroom window.  Just can't make stuff like that up.  :cap_haloween:
