Play 3 game just now to maybe try enjoy myself.

 

  • Game 1 : I use Hood ---- CV spend entire match trying kill one BB on flank. yes. Entire Match. 1 BB.  No spotting, No help, Enemy DD run rampant. Was blow out loss.
  • Game 2 : I use Smolensk -- 8 of our ship push C on mini lemming train. Enemy Shima DD come down middle B and just perm spot our entire team.  Was close win but only because A cap player save the day. Everyone at C cap sharing paint can to huff and all die one after other.
  • Game 3 : I use Graf Zepplin --- Why have enemy when you own team shoot you better than enemy ? Team Sims come torp kill me then laugh about it.



Log off.

I agree.  It's not fun when two of team's DDs hide behind the team's BBs.  I don't think some people know how to play DDs.

Not having any issues in randoms, and I play high tier randoms on daily basis.  My approach is very simple: I don’t have any expectations from my team, my ship is the only ship I can directly control.  Win or loss, I play to the best of my ability, and that’s it.  Also, I never linger after my ship is sunk, it’s back to the port and load the next ship up.  Zero drama.

<Edit> It also helps to play ships that you can still have a lot of fun on, even in a game that is being lost.  Hint: big and slow ships with long reload are not the kind of ship that you can have fun on when game is being lost.  You want something nimble with a lot of firepower, and then you can go out in style :cap_rambo:

NO !  I saw three actual losses this weekend IN COOP !!!  Why, because Random "experts" decided to do a little camping in the rear and ASSUMED, they could kill the last two bot BB's whom were less than 50%.......  Guess what, those geniuses couldn't hit the broadside of a barn door and at 5-2, 3-1 and 4-2 odds, lost absolutely winnable matches and then, started complaining before the game was done and negative karma went everywhere......  BOTs rarely miss and if you "sit still" it only gets worse !!!! 

Wow.  Stay in Randoms PLEASE.........

the days following a major new patch, (upgrade changes, new CA tech tree) are always chaotic in game. Take a week's holiday from WOWS, I'm sure things will be better when you get back.

As for a Graf being sunk by a Sims, shame on the Graf! OP's fault in my view.

So what constitutes a quality player? Not only are the weekends pretty bad as far as the overall quality of gameplay, but the number of mediocre to bad players complaining about other players lack of ability is incredible.  It's a matter of perspective.

Today was hard. Got my three boxes and logged off.

This game is again becoming a chore rather than a joy. Mainly due to CV trolls, but we all know that already.

^^This. If battles are bad and you're getting frustrated and/or annoyed, Ops and CoOp are good ways to regain fun.

There is so much to unpack in a few brief words in how this game actually functions....

When the developers take a historical naval warship game and turn it into a two dimensional HE spam arcade, these are the players it attracts. Leave it to WG to take something good and turn it into trash. They did it with WOTs and now WOWS

ah, still, Graf getting tk'd in this day and age? There is more to the story. Graf would have to be on very low hp, as dmg is reflected back on the tk'er, normally.

Was a Team Kill.

I move up to Use Secondary to finish off Izmail that was only one left on this side. Sims was running from C cap to me. Izmail get me to about 50 %

Sims then go by me ( no enemy near ) and torp me then sail off saying " LOL "

4,000 time better than this.
When you run into player alot like @iChase and @Notser and @DeejayKnight and always helpful.
The amount of little boy toxic chat was maybe 1 in 20 game.

Now is 1 in 2 game.

Co-op is a good way to regain fun. Swearing at the bots is fun because they have no feelings and do not talk back. Being the only human on an all-bot team and raging - when you die before the last of them is gone - about what a worthless bunch of clapped-out transistor radios they are is incredibly cathartic.

Operations have recently left me gobsmacked at the inability of some people to follow a set of instructions on screen, keep themselves alive, and hit the target when their enemy is moving in a scripted and predictable fashion. In Aegis, for example, the problem was always that you killed the escorts too early and the transports ran headlong into the enemy reinforcement. I've had more than one battle where the escorts were killed TOO LATE because everyone was dying. In Killer Whale, the team losing its grip on getting to the extraction zone despite MULTIPLE reminders has seen more than one guaranteed five-star win become a dead loss.

Operations for me are un-fun now. I used to like them, but they currently suck. I don't miss Raptor, and I even don't miss Narai.

oh and remember, defending yourself from teammates is frowned upon in this game.

OK, but toxic chat is a different story from team/player quality. I thought you were talking about skill.
