Had a good game on the losing side this morning in my Gearing. Was complimented after the battle. I won't lie it was nice. Coincidentally I unlocked a container which was a  SC for 7 days of freemium.  

( ty WG 👍)

So I had a idea. Is there a way maybe for reaching X amount of karma points a one time SC?

Just a thought

I understand your thought process, but it just isn't worth the damage such a move would cause.  Within minutes, someone will figure out how to exploit karma points to an unfair advantage.

It’d be a great idea but like prairie said someone would find a way to exploit it!

Its always nice to get a +1 karma at the end of the game but I still hate the karma system as it stands. I rarely use negative karma unless someone excessively pings the map or goes off on a rant. I don’t even use them on AFKs as it can be as simple as an internet drop, PC crash or real life situation (kids, phone call etc ... real life > than a game of pixel ships). However, -1 can be picked up because you didn’t play your ship the way someone on your team wanted you to play it, you play a CV (lose them just about every time I take mine out for Naval Battles even if finishing in the top 3) or like I did when I lost 3 the other week for not “Set a smoke screen” for a 3 man div ... I was in an f-in Halland (no smoke).

Good luck mate and stay safe!

I agree.

 

IMHO - The Karma system is stupid.

 

Karma goes up and down like a yo-yo and nothing is passed on to the victim player as to what was done well or what was done poorly.

Also, Once karma gets to zero. it will not drop any lower.  IF a player is malicious, at 0 karma they will not lose any more Karma as it cannot go into the negatives.   

From above:

you play a CV (lose them just about every time I take mine out for Naval Battles especially if finishing in the top 3)  (FT;FY).

 

Grats on your GG.

Blame WG for this.

They’re the ones who insisted that a hated system that had settled mechanics and relatively few adherents needed to be replaced by a hated system with unsettled mechanics and a great deal more exposure in terms of raw player numbers.

My karma is a 1218 and I've always been pretty unlucky with sc's and crates.

wow congrats on karma count!

I normally get camo, flags, free xp. Got freemium this last one. I have won one ship, my Scharnhorst shortly after I joined.

I just kind of thought, a one time SC for reaching a predetermined milestone. Some sort of real reward for good behavior.

Since I play CVs, my Karma hovers around zero. I played my Massachusetts for several games yesterday and my Karma went up to seven. I played my Midway twice and it went down to two. No matter if I do well or poorly, or if my team wins or loses, if I play a CV, I will be "reported" by other players. This is one of the several reasons why the Karma system is meaningless. That said, I always try to complement those who are decent in chat or at least try in the game. Who knows? Karma may mean something to them.
