Thanks Wging for this completely unengrossing game.   I truly felt like i was playing World of Warplanes Beta.

I tanked half the enemy team for half the match and got like the lowest score.  I feel really bad about that.

This is the counter to those who whine about twenty minute camp-fests. :cap_haloween:

With the pathetically low XP numbers across enemy team, and equally feeble potential damage you are showing, it does not look like you tanked all that much.

Are you being sarcastic over how minimal effort it took to win that one match?

The beauty of Random mode, well..  The next match will not be the same.

For a minimalist, this was an ideal match..

Thats because everyone on their team fired about 4 rounds before the game was over.  But keen observation

The amount of one side not pushing has gone through the roof.

...Er, you took 4k damage, and only just over 400k potential. That is not tanking. You only fired 24 shells, on top of that.

Randoms are not co-op. Ships don't go straight into the enemy. They also don't go for the cap and sit in there next to the enemy.

A  heck of a lot of people seem to fear losing  HP - I call it "save a star".  How the heck people can play a BB and not use all that gorgeous yummy healing power is beyond me.

Not true some bots are better than random players

what this man said ^^^^

 

try being in a match with a Pensacola captain who allowed a spotted destroyer with less than 2k hp close the gap and dev strike him with torps all the while he was shooting at a healthy BB at his max range. A bot has better situational awareness.

this kinda proves that you'll never be able to balance anything.......!  We will never be happy.  Unless, our host in the complete opposite direction it is moving in..........making the game more deadly and where precision and skill are the standard versus having gimmicks all over the place to control player value.  They are drawing the game inward to become a FFA arcade shooter and population density holes are creating stomps that speed up the game.....and, that is their revenue generation metric:  > throughput = > profits... 

It is funny !!!

Crap happens when the other team refuses to contend for the caps in Domination mode.  What's WG supposed to do about it?  They can't exactly force the non-aggressive players into getting in there and trying to prevent the other team from taking the caps.

Yeah there wasn't even a CV for me to blame here.

The battle lasted 5 minutes, the enemy team was zeroed out by the 6 deaths. I honestly don't understand how half the team could die that fast but games like that aren't so uncommon these days. It wouldn't surprise me if many of the people on both sides were still in spawn when the battle ended.

From what I can see, I think that the OP's team took all the Domination mode caps and the battle ended quickly on points.  Maybe a mercy rule win.  Or maybe a quick victory in the other direction (i.e. reaching 1000 points).

Not really seeing any resemblance to Co-op here. 

One of the teams appears to have turtled.  At least in Co-op you can count on the reds to actually engage.

You would be wrong, at least from my perspective

I had a random end in under 5 min, and I sank 3 ships. Was finishing 4 and 5. Yammy was perma fire and dd was toast as smoli unleashed hell. I had 70k in dmg. 35k in fire. Confederate, kraken, witherer plus 1st blood were probably mine. High caliber not out of the question and it ended. No caps. 4 refs died. None of ours. It was over so fast and I was mad. Was going to be an epic game 

had a bunch that went the other way including an entire flank rushing wide on hot spot and me in the Yammy. The push got stuffed but I’m where the Yamato is supposed to be hitting targets from 15-20 km. Ended up first on my team, doing my job and get reported twice for not pushing up. Because the Yam is such a brawler. That one ended in 8 min but I managed a respectable 130k
