How boring has become this game!, full of cruiser island campers firing cowardly behind the rocks. So, as a battleship player, what would you expect of me, to approach an island to fire my ship? No way!, I do not play this game, look for another battleship noobs to burn out their ship but not mine, not anymore!

And I could experience how innefective could be this simple tactic. I was in a winner team, witnessing how an incompetent island-camping cruisers team was being annihilated in a quite embarrasing way because of those selfish players that do not want to play as a team. This game consists in cooperate to destroy the enemy fleet, this is how it should have been played. I am experiencing lack of support of cruisers because they decide to sit behind an island, cowardly, expecting that a noob battleship player makes the mistake to approach to that island. This is the World of Warships of today, "a trench war".

I simply miss the times where I had support from my team cruiser players, nowadays nobody is willing to push, this is the world of island-camping sitters.

CVs are really good at convincing island campers to move or die.  In fact it is one of their strengths. I suggest trying them :).

You're allowed to call them "campers" up to T8 … 

After that, you have to say "farmer" :)
 

It's the difference between amateur and professional lol

I'm guessing you're playing mostly high tiers, which is where this meta is mostly found.

The thing you need to realize about high tiers though is that mistakes are punished far more severely and often cost you your ship at worst or leave you combat ineffective at best. BB salvos get a lot more accurate, Radar exists, DPM from cruisers is a lot better, and torpedo spreads become a lot more dangerous if you get caught by one. Because of all of this, people play the game safe and slow to avoid making these mistakes that could get them dev struck out of nowhere.

Looks like someone had bbq handed to them in their BB.

If you cant make use of your big HP pool then you deserve to be farmed.

A BB needs to analyze where the shells are coming from and move to flank it or if that is not a good choice then retreat.

High tier yes but low tier gameplay is usually a lot more aggressive

TL/DR Battleship main is whining that cruisers aren't sailing broadside to him in open water so that he can delete them.

Theyre just playing to their strengths... a face tanking yammie, an island waifu loving usn cruiser, or a shima launching long legged torp walls...

Each of these seemingly insurmountable problems is counterable through positioning... flank the yammie, flank the usn cruisers, and change speed and course versus the shima till radar and acoustics arrive...

What's really sad about this game is the fact that wargamming uses different calculations for coiners and non-coiners. if you spend money then the calculations for damage dealt/recieved, accuracy and dispersion of shells fired work more to the coiners favor.

5500 battles and only 148 battles in a Cruiser says it all M8, in those 148 battles you must've realized its the hardest ship class to play successfully - it requires smart handling or get blapped 1 salvo -  GL

Aha, lolno.

 

Whether or not you spend money has no bearing on dispersion or accuracy, for or against you, nor does any money you spend have anything at all to do with the damage you deal or receive.  All premium time and or premium ships bring to the table that regular ships and time don't is economic earnings, and to say otherwise is pure fallacy.

Not when you have two accounts (1 coined the other a free account) and have done more than enough testing to see the differences.

Last time I tried to sail in the open and support that said BB who keep complaining about island camper, I got punished for even trying to support my BB while the one I supported was running away.

 

Since that day, I decided I would only support DD from behind an island where I can safely fire my guns. At least the DD provide some eyes to the team..

I am complaining because of the lack of support from cruisers, and sometimes destroyers, because they rather hide in an island, and as a battleship player I need spot, if not, torpedoes will smash me, this is for higher tiers. As I said, I miss the times when this game worked as a team, not individually, as I am now witnessing with the island-sitters.
