im starting to think that WG should put a limit on the number of threads someone can make in one week, this guy is reaching spam level of threads started in such a short time frame

Because WG introduced skill based MM and you are actively being matched with Puerto Rico players of YOUR skill level.

It actually isn't a bad ship at all. I am guessing you don't have one.

Can't really say what to compare it too with your hidden stats....

But I have encountered very good PR drivers, and I am getting better with mine....

But, hey, $74  can't buy OP.....

Tier for tier Alaska could be considered a better ship, but PR is not a bad ship, it was just too expensive. While Alaska, wich is just as good and much cheaper.

And I have yet to meet a stat hider who complains all the time I wanted to hear more from. Guess what: You're not the exception to that. If you spent as much time learning the game as you do spamming troll threads, perhaps you wouldn't feel the need to hide your stats anymore.

 

Perhaps, I stress "perhaps", we might even be willing to listen to your complaints.

 

Oh, who am I kidding, right?

Because they're mostly no skilled wallet warriors. I got this on my team in ranked:

You're seeing that right: 43 PR

I'm actually inclined to agree with the OP, particularly when it comes to ranked. I don't think it's an issue of everyone with a Puerto Rico being bad. I think it's an issue of people who play Puerto Rico in ranked are players who aren't experienced enough to be playing tier 10 yet. They are playing Puerto Rico because they don't have a better boat. Good players who have Puerto Rico probably already have things like Stalingrad, Moskva, Des Moines, etc.

I have used PR 5 times in ranked, have won all 5 matches and survived 4 of the matches. Sure that is only a few matches and may have been lucky but I like those results. I also have used it most matches in Clan Battles

Change the ship to the Smolensk and I wholeheartedly agree. That ship truly attracts the bottom of the barrel players in high tiers. 

Smolensk would have been the old Puerto Rico. Nothing to do with the ship itself per se, just that it was a Tier X ship that was accessible to inexperienced players who might not have had a tech tree ship up to Tier X yet and came out right before a ranked season started. So a high percentage of potatoes were in Smolensk in ranked because it was the only Tier X ship they had. 

I was one of them, but I did OK-ish consistent with my 51% WR.

Similarly someone could have fully whaled into Puerto Rico with no Tier X game experience, so a higher percentage of Puerto Rico players are nubs than other ships now.
