If:

  • Your BB has never been inside a cap circle
  • You believe 'Max Range is Best Range'
  • You believe getting your camo scratched is the same as a loss
  • You like to 'flank' by running the outside border
  • Islands are your Waifu whether you have shots or not
  • You believe "Broadside is Best" so you can fire all your guns at once
  • You believe that "if it works in Randoms, it will work in Ranked" 
  • Rambo is your personal role model and team work is for sissies
  • You sleep with a night light
  • You hate puppies or kittens

 

Then: 

You might want to avoid Ranked*

I guess I’m ready for Ranked... I’ve been in cap circles in carriers in Randoms.

Hmm so so...

•BBs are supposed to yolo ahead and do the capping... So that means my CAs and DDs must be off the hook having to cap, that’s such a relief thank you!

•Yes max range very bad, far better to attempt to  ram an enemy ship so you can avoid the question of using guns and worrying about gun ranges entirely...

•Hmm you may have a point about scratching Camo paint being bad after your port crews worked so hard painting it on the ship only for it to be burned off. Better let them do something more worthy of their time by skipping the Camo paint so they can have time off...

•If going to flanks is bad, then I guess we could just charge right though the middle, and heard staying fR away from borders is good some nice border security can be dangerous!

•Why are we supposed to have shots for the island???

• I know what you mean about not letting enemy  see your broadside, when in doubt only let then see your stern shrinking in the distance p, sounds a lot safer I agree!

•It completely fails in Randoms, so guess it must work well in Ranked, since you are saying as long as it does not work in Randoms you are ok in Ranked right?

•Not sure who Rambo is, but have seen Star Wars, Pirates of the Carribean, Martial arts movies, some Anime, and lots of Disney movies, I should be covered on the role models. Sissies are the ones doing the teamwork? Oh my.

•Sleep with night light at night??? Night time too dangerous far better to sleep during the day with the puppies and kittens...

Well sounds like I am ready for Ranked! How does one switch to Ranked???  :Smile_trollface:

One particularly musing battle was in B cap on New Dawn; Independence tried to ram me, but I decided almost too late not to accept. After that I got an easy secondaries kill, (though I was still attacking with bombers.)

Easy; because the C-hull Indy doesn't have secondaries; and the Ryujo most certainly does.

Are you Canadian by chance?

I keep combing the OCS and researching terpenes, trying to find a strain that will let me focus, not give a crap, but avoid thinking about what kind of cereal I'm going to use shortly to fill a mixing bowl and cover with a half litre of milk.....:Smile_veryhappy:

I do not like puppies & kittens.

My cpap machine has a light when it is in use, does that count as a night light?

Teamwork in ranked???? what are you smoking?

What works depends on your enemy, not the type of match.

Broadsides are best if you can get away with it.

It is not always best to take the shot, the situation at that time should determine if you take the shot or not.

I'll run the edge if it is necessary but then again that is situational, not predetermined.

I need a new paint job after every match.

Range is another thing determine by the present situation

Far more often than not capping with a BB is not wise but if the situation presents itself go ahead and cap.

Nope - but it means the BBs need to see they can cap before going into battle.  A good BB sitting in  cap with the CA/DDs preventing the enemy from getting in, is a strong strategy and can work very well.  Captains also need to realize that the team does not have to cap in the first 2 minutes to win.

No one suggested ramming over max range - just that max range is not the best place for a BB to be - even for IJN BBs who are more snipers than anything else.

The Op was making a joke and I replied with my own humor as well. As such the list I made was meant to be as ridiculous as possible while still falling under the realm of possibilities of somebody clueless and misinformed about how to play. :Smile_veryhappy:

I by no means think in the manner in which I used when making that humorous list. Although I will take risks in my BBs by escorting ships into or onnthe edge of bases to provide close heavy fire support for my team or of its safe to do so I will even cap in my BBs. Or if needed I will take an occasional long range shots, but I don’t sit around and do that all battle since mid range and close range brawling is often more profitable.

And yes as long as we are killing ships and enemy has not gotten all the bases and been racking up devasting number of points it is indeed perfectly fine to not cap the bases right off the bat, but still needs to be a consideration if the situations are right for doing it.

My avatar is cranky about the fact that you don't like puppies. But, you seem to have this down, so you are certifiable...I mean certified!

having played plenty of random and a bit of ranked, ranked has far less teamwork than random. and more island humping. it's just pure ****.
