[RANT] Please Stop Throwing the Operation to Farm Damage

Since Killer Whale has come back, it's like everyone has forgotten how to play/win.  I have yet to win once in 4 tries.  3 of those were 5-star runs that were lost because the some of the team was more interested in farming damage than getting to the exit and winning.  There have been polite reminders (from me and others) at the beginning to not ignore getting enough ships to the exit.  Still no luck.  In my last loss, I got to watch a New Mexico sail away from the west exit to go north to join a Fuso and try to farm the irrelevant bots while time expired with only 2 in the circle.

PLEASE play the objectives so we all reap the rewards of 5 star wins.

Sorry for the rant.  Once was frustrating.  3 times in a row is infuriating (to put it mildly)!

I have noticed the same in Killer Whale; maybe there's an influx of new players finally reaching T6?  3-4 stars is what I am seeing most so far this week now that the CVs have been replaced with BBs.  My guess is people aren't comfortable going after the newly added BBs because it is certain death with the DDs and CLs escorting them.  So that usually leaves me going after the target ships in a CL dodging for my life and hoping everyone else notices and provides support.  If you want better results you can always check the Operations chat in game for premades.  Somehow I did manage a 5 star last night while solo queueing with 3 DDs, 3BBs, and myself in the Budy so don't give up hope!

Rant justified. 

Even highly skilled teams sometimes screw this up.  We call the remaining time now.

BTW, having a CV in this operation is almost unfair.  I don't think I even spotted the NW spawns last night.

It's not people farming damage, they just either don't know what to do, or don't care.

The sign of a good team is the harbor is cleared before the 12 min mark, when the first reinforcements arrive.

So far, I've seen a disproportionate number of teams fail to clear the harbor in time, still have people outside the harbor at 12 min, and even worse, not have the harbor cleared by the second reinforcement wave.

I ran the Op with random pubbies a few days ago.  They cleared the harbor, then stayed inside the island perimeter (except  for fighting the reds up north near the exit).  They shot the west Kolberg as it charged toward the harbor, and shot at any DD that tried to come in.  Because they didn't even try for the NW spawn BBs, it was a four-star win and everyone seemed content about that. 

In the subsequent battle with a west exit they did the same thing except for two of us who died trying to reach the actual exit since none of the ships outside the islands had been reduced.  Fail, of course.

I'm not sure what to think about this.  Perhaps players simply rote repeat what more or less worked before, without understand why it worked before.  But charging north on a west exit?  That's just stupid.

The operations now attract exceptionally unintelligent players. I find that it is useless to expect competence, so I take out Ryujo often since I don't need most of the team with it. Also, people who just don't listen to commands from either the UI or teammates are just wasting my time.

Just heap reports on these morons, and hopefully, if they see their notifications filling with crud, they'll sense a pattern.

I'll one up your worse: teams losing 3 people just clearing the harbor, then having people YOLO away from the exit to go after the named reinforcements. Keep seeing that happening.
