....myself included.

 

How delusional have we become?

 

Got blamed for a loss yesterday (not a big thing, it happens). "It's the Zao's fault! He sat in the back and just set stuff on fire!"  Hmmm.... At that point I was sitting on 139k damage with two kills and a cap, but ok.

 

Got blamed for another loss a couple of days ago (not a big thing, it happens). About 10 minutes in the team chimes in with: "It's the Haru's fault!! He didn't cap!!"  True, I didn't cap, but I had something like 108k damage, three kills - and we won the game.... Just sayin', but perhaps winning the game makes me exempt from taking blame for a loss.

 

Just last game, got blamed for another loss (not a big thing, it happens): "Our DDs suck (not just me this time)!! They never cap anything! They're behind the battleships, while I am a light cruiser valiantly defending the cap that we haven't captured (from well back and behind a rock)!" True, it wasn't my best game, I take full responsibility. But everyone has off games. And perhaps you missed the three sets of torps I had to dodge in order to keep from becoming just another set of points for the other team. Those torps pushed me southeast and out of position. And then maybe you missed the amazing RNG that particular game offered - I got knocked out by a wild unseen shot from a Montana where I was clearly hit by a dispersion shell - and the Kremlin that got zero damage on two full salvos at very close range that allowed the enemy Montana to ram him - or maybe you missed the other ramming where an enemy CA rammed our other BB because the other BB couldn't put him down at point blank range with zero damage on at least one shot. But yeah, this wasn't my best game and I didn't do particularly well.

 

My point is, every time you start a game you're given six different players on your team. Even if you kill all seven of your opponents, you're still no more than one seventh of the victory. Everyone on our team contributed something. Even a super duper unicum player gets help from his/her team to some degree. Otherwise, a super unicum would be able to take on seven and still win with a decent consistency. 

 

Every loss is the same thing: You are at least one seventh of that loss. I had a game in the Conqueror last week with almost a quarter million in damage and 2.7 million tanked. We lost. I still bear responsibility for my part in that loss. I was more than one seventh of that last loss because I was driven out of position. Maybe I could have done something a wee bit differently and not been driven back. But if I hadn't been driven back, maybe that GK survives a little longer. Who knows. For my part, I take full responsibility. 

 

So chill out and own your part of it. The alternative is making yourself look rather childish, really.

 

Now, everybody off to therapy in 5 days, right?

Personally I think team screen (screen 2) at the end of the game, should show damage, kills (plans and ships like it does now) and caps or percentage of caps you took.  So people truly understand what the other players did or did not do.

The team screen should highlight those who's fault it actually is. 

Implementation: Highlight the person who's looking at it if they're on the losing team.

Oh, yeah, when they blame you, just say:

"I'm just here for the fun"

"I'm just a casual gamer, this is how I relax, winning isn't important."

"Everybody's a winner in their hearts!!"

(Anybody got more?) 

Shame we can post the "it's only game, why you heff to be mad?" gif in battle chat.

Turn chat off. Best mod in the mod-pack. Haven't had chat on in WoWs for at least ~10 months, and I would never go back now. There is nothing of value in chat that cannot be equally expressed through hotcommands.

Between the people who don't know how to play rental tier 10 (freaking dumba** idea wargaming). And people only playing to save their star, has made playing ranked unenjoyable and worth my time.

Nope. There are still a lot of valuable things going on in chat, and oftentimes a decent amount of fun. I'm more aiming at the lost souls that refuse to take any responsibility for a loss while taking full responsibility for every win. Neither is legitimate.

I cringe when I hit the battle button in ranked. I hate the salt but like the more focused team play. I did start seeing some of the poor rental decision play my last game.. battleships avoiding combat hoping to get carried to victory. I feel bad when I screw up.  The stakes and all that. But yes it's a darn game already! Supposed to be fun not stressful.

Including the afk guy, the guy who just floors it and drives straight into B, the guy who dies because he's talking sh*t in team chat instead of driving, the guy who torps your own team's destroyer, the guy who picks CV despite never having played one before... yeah, those guys sure are contributing something, but maybe not to the green team. :Smile_veryhappy:

That is kinda the point. Contributions can be both positive and negative.

You forgot the guy who sync drops and throws the match for his buddy.

It took you five days !?  Holy crap, it took me 1 day:  after the rentals started to be panzerstellung's and since they wouldn't stop crashing into land masses of every size and never moving; since the carriers decided ranked was their game and everyone else had to do what they wanted; since the AFK players "just sort of came alive at the end of the match" and complained about what was left; and, since every game I played was all about the "luck of the draw" on who was on your team.........it was time to say "enough of this crap" and I started dialing a therapist.........  Got to 10 and realized, any further ranked wasn't a "value-added" activity.  5 days???

Ranked ends in 5 days. We were all eligible for meds when we were tempted to start the first game.  :Smile_Default:

So....you played your ship according to its role?  How dare you.  You should have died so that your damage was as pitiful as the dead guy who had the time to type in the first place.  :Smile_veryhappy:
