The game mode is fun. The rewards are garbage.

Yeah... I agree somewhat.   That said, I am using the mode to derp around a bit, and for a positive, I'm working on anticipating torp launches and dodging.

Dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge

the only thing going is it's fast so you get more per minute yoloing. Your definitely not going to get it from Wins. 10 battles and not a single win. 1 draw though.

Constant losses...

...sounds like so much fun.

Great if you’re a twitch hound? Maybe not so much for many others?

It’s the cost of earning ECXP on a Captain you never had. 

Yup, Finally realized the best reward ratio is to YOLO and die in 2 minutes. Play all ships. Even a Win give crap rewards.

It's a waste of flags when i can use them on normal ships and get 10x the rewards.

Same here.  One win (ironically, the first game, when I had no idea what I was doing), one draw and about 12-15 losses.  Seriously weighing how badly I want the Benham.

They'll never make the rewards for an alternative mode better than the ones in the main mode, or people will stop playing the main mode for a month (or however long the temporary mode is in the game). That makes the queues long, and kills the game as a whole. Sorry, just can't have it.

Sucky thing about a 4-way FFA game mode is your expected win rate is cut to one in four. So you're really only two and a half wins behind the expected curve right now, annoying as that may be.

Best advice for this mode is to form a div with people you can stand to play with (or *gasp* like playing with). A lot of fun and enjoyable options open up when you can do stuff like tell a teammate to run his pursuers past an island you're hiding next to so you can ambush them.

I dabbled with it yesterday. Not a huge fan of the mode but I'll play a couple for fuel tokens and see where it goes. 

Do the directives involve getting wins though? If so I'm out on this mode totally thanks to the greatly reduce win probability.

Unlike random, where coin flip win rate should be 50%, in Savage battle, a "good" win rate is close to 25%, since only 1 of 4 teams can win.
