I wouldn't let whether or not I was "good" at a game dictate if I felt like i should be playing it.   If that was the reality of gaming there wouldn't be very many players playing any of them.  If you are enjoying keep playing!    Good luck    I suppose you've picked a good place to start improving if you can ignore the forum trolling any less than uni level player gets when asking this question.   I'd start by divisioning with some better players in similar class ships..  hang tight and watch what they do that is effective.   Try and incorporate those habits into your own play style.

welcome to the forums!  if you find yourself dying too quickly and not contributing anything to the team, they have co-op mode.  you should look into that.  have a blessed stay!

Try to make small changes to the way you play. Sometimes not shooting is the best thing you can do. Keep experimenting with different playstyles. You will find one that you like and you do well with.

Captains skills make a big difference. Hang in there!

I looked up your stats, just so we're on the same page.

I think first and foremost you need to change how you are approaching the game in general, your stats are...well, they are really bad (I'm being nice here).

Standouts are your very low PR rating (which basically is a rating that says how much you were contributing to your team) and that your survival rate is lower than your win-rate, meaning you are dying a LOT while also not really doing any damage either, I'd suspect you're one of the first 3 to die on your team in nearly every game you play, probably while taking shells from 4-5 ships...am I on the right track here?

1: Start focusing more on your survival and staying alive until the match ends (win or lose).  This does not mean hiding in the back of the map but does it means not charging forward full steam to your death either.    The islands are there for a reason, use them as cover, use them to drop detection, fire over them WHENEVER POSSIBLE.    A ship that stays alive and does 0 damage contributes WAY more to a win than a ship that does 20,000 and dies.   Focusing on survival first and damage second, after all, the longer you live, the more damage you can do.

2:  Play something besides Battleships.    Battleships require careful thought out play, where am I gonna go, what am I gonna do when I get there, how to I escape?, are there Torpedoes on the way to me?   Etc etc.    Play more Destroyers, they are vital to learning to be better at the game, because they'll teach you the fundamentals of the concealment system, which is something you can almost ignore in the world of Battleships because just you're just detected nearly all the time they are also more forgiving in that you can pop smoke and escape a bad situation.      I didn't start getting good until I got good at Destroyers, after that everything else fell into place.     You should also probably play more cruisers, stats say thats your best ship class based on PR.

3:  Use your map!    I suspect you aren't using it enough right now.   Hit plus (+) on your keyboard and make it bigger, click the gear in the top right corner and turn on last known position and whatever "circles" you might need....for DDs Torpedo range is a great one to have active, for example, or AA detection.    Using your map effectively can tip you off that you're about to sail into certain death and give you time to turn around.

Thats all I can think of off the top of my head.
