You can use the training room or simply play coop for target shooting practice. Though gameplay in random is completely differences from coop where the real player would change their speed and direction "randomly" unlike bots in coop. But I think you could improve your aim by playing coop. I also watch lots of live streaming on Twitch and YouTube videos to learn how to get better...

If you are getting sunk super fast in a BB, it's most often because you are rushing into the center of the map.  As a general rule, the higher the tier of match, the slower the pace and there more camping there is.  The first one to stick their head up, gets it shot by 12 people at once. 

Slow down and remind yourself that ships have more speeds than stop and full throttle.

As a BB and cruiser main I always recommend playing Co-op for an extended period of time in any new ship to learn it's strengths and weaknesses before venturing into random battles. Bots are straight forward so learn to fight them with your new ship first. Also, you might want to adjust your captain skills to more of a survival build first before you start specializing. 

Here's a standard captain build for battleships that may help. It emphasizes survival:

It's a old build but still works especially if you're dying quickly.

Based on your number of games played, you are still very new.  Nothing wrong with that but don't rush into the top tiers too fast.  It's a common tendency but there is nothing special up there.  It's just more sitting around and waiting for the right time to make your move, than there is in the lower tiers.

It might sound counter intuitive but the more you slow down and learn the game, the more fun you will have.  It's flustering getting nuked right away every game but moving up in tiers too fast, just makes that mistake more and more punishing. 

It isn't a simulator, it's a shooting game, but it's also more complicated and strategic, than meet's the eye at first glance. 

If you are looking for a fast paced, fur ball of chaos to dive into and slug it out for the lulz, the lower tiers are where you want to be.  The higher tiers are slower paced and methodical.

Hi, so there is three things you can do. 

1) Play a bit more coop games, so you can practice shooting and hitting enemy targets at various ranges first time. 

2) Drop down a few more levels, and play around T4 a bit more - you wont be facing enemies 2 tiers higher than you, and the game is a bit more chaotic down there which can be fun. 

3) Check out some of the guides I have posted below.

Good luck! And if you would like to division, feel free to send me an in-game message.

Co op is a great place to learn as a beginner and it's fast paced mayhem so is good fun.

If you're spending money on ships i recommend going into the armory and getting one of the Doe commanders for your USA BBs. That 10 point commander with expert marksman skill would give you a good starting point to build on.

I agree with Burnsy and others, stay at the lower tiers and learn there rather than rush to the high tiers. I rushed up to fast.

 

Can send me a message in game if you'd like to division sometime, I like lower tiers too and am a casual player.

Oink Goltz

You set up a training room and can battle with and against bots. Try it. You'll see, play a few games, then realize it's so boring that you'll play Co-op stuff... And then back to random. Goltz, clan [PIG] Supreme Leader, suggests also you join an active clan and maybe find some people ready to loose precious time training you.

Goltz.

This is great advice that many many folks don't seem to realize.
