What a joke of a game, complete waste of my time. I had one intelligent player on my team and we were the only ships left with the entire enemy team still alive.

My flank collapsed immediately when every other ship on it ran away to the other side of the map, leaving me to get pummelled until I got out of range, the other side couldn't even manage a single kill, the Benson and a few other ships rushed mid like they were on a Dust 2 Deathmatch server and then got massacred by focused fire from both flanks when the enemy moved to defend their base. I had SEVEN ships aimed at me towards the enemy of the game.

Sir. remember, Your going to be on teams that roll over other teams also. In this game MM is very much luck of the draw it seems. It can be very frustrating make you very upset. Switch to an operation after a game like that or pause for 10 minutes and try again. My first game yesterday was Horrible! Just terrible players who obviously thought they were going to die for real in a video game. I wanted to scream at the screen. I wanted an explanation from each player on my team why they were playing the way they were. Needless to say Your not going to get a reason even if you ask so don't. Next game I played a tier 5 DD and pleaded with my team to support me in a cap. To my surprise my team mates came rushing over to help and we smooshed all the enemy ships on my cap side and rolled over them

So it happens other way round. Take heart, try as hard as you can and enjoy YOUR play. Be a good team mate when you can and have fun.:Smile_great:

I dont buy it. You were the most powerful ship in that entire battle. I'm thinking you made some mistakes and are blaming your team. You could have carried that.

Oink! 

Uninstalling the game is the solution.

Looks like the entire losing team didn’t play well based on the very low xp. Steam rolls happen but I think people over dramatize them. I don’t see nearly the amount of these matches as people claim but maybe everyone has a different opinion of “steam roll “

That is what happens when high tier BBs fail to do anything productive...

BB fail... Dont expect the other ship classes will carry the BB dead weight..*NEWSFLASH* They cant...

Its the high tier meta.. BBs fail= Automatic loss...

simple answer bud..since CBT the MM is balance they said..its not the players ( BUT if you check all of your team stats youll find majority of them are 48% below and if you check the other team they have majority of 50% above) So i think the MM is just like that Random.......your team is the lamb..to get slaughter period.We dont have a Skill based MM so yeah you will always get a chance to play with players who are clueless . Stay positive :cap_win:

I love how people seem to twist certain game elements around to make themselves look good.

Being alive at the end does not always mean you played well.  Getting kills does not always mean you played well.  Doing lots of damage does not always mean you played well.

On the flip side, doing low damage, dying first, or getting no kills does not always mean you played poorly either.  

With those low xp points even in a loss, with the addition that everyone died.....the entire team folded like a cheap lawn chair.  There is likely plenty of blame to go around.

This is a really bad post. Kills, dmg output, & survival all are key to success in this game and are direct indicators of how well or poorly one did in battle.

This sounds more like excuse making for your own bad play at times.

It's sort of correct.

Those things matter but the order matters too.

A lot of players with decent damage/kills end up doing them because they sit in back until the game is decided then when the enemy team is clearly winning, they either charge in and pick up damage or the red team suicides trying to get more damage.

Realistically, kills/damage in the early stages of a game are what are the biggest impact on success. Every minute of gametime minimizes the importance of either.

Yesterday I broke even on wins and losses, but it did not feel like it.  In one game in my Hindenburg, our Shima and Gearing got radared.  Gunfire ended the shima and the gearing got spooked and smoked up eating a torpedo that ended him.  Their DDs then moved into the fresh smoke while keeping myself and the BBs lit.  I looked at the other side of the map and our team was doing even worse.  

It felt like the mercy rule kicked in like little league baseball.

Well the winning team steamed rolled them with 5 cruisers out of the top 6 leading the way carrying the other classes so sorry it can happen and it did happen . One BB on winning team team played good .

The idea is that there are a lot more aspects to this game than those things.

You can have a huge damage score but if you didnt play the objectives at all, sat in the back and farmed damage all game...did you really play well?  If you scored 3 kills but failed to reset the cap because there was a low health cruiser on the other side if the map that you wanted to blap....did you really play well?

Again on the flip side, if you used your radar well, defended caps or got caps but didnt do much damage, didnt get any kills and died halfway through the game on a lucky enemy radar....did you play poorly?

Taken out of context, a 200k damage 3 kill game where you survived till the end sounds like you are awesome.  Then you watch the replay and it's a Montana who sat in the back and didnt support the team, damage farmed the entire game, and got a few late kills when the game was all but over and the team yoloed at him.  

It's about context.  People that think that damage, kills and surviving are all it takes the be awesome are the ones causing a LOT of the problems these days.  These are the ones camping in the back, huddled with the team, thinking if they can just get a little more damage, or a kill, or stay alive.....they will win the game when in fact, the games already over.

It's the save a star mentality, just without the star.  In the top xp so I wasnt the problem....

I'm not saying damage, kills and survival don't matter.  They are vital...but it is how, when and why you do that damage, get that kill, stay alive that matters more.

Correct. One reason I don't play. Bb, I prefer cruiser. Because if in a bb you don't do some serious damage early you are costing your team. I prefer to kite, its the most fun for me personally.

Your entire team got rolled. It happens to everybody eventually. The very first game in my Naval Battle attempt was a lolistomp. It happens. To quote Jingles “Mistakes was made”. The best thing a person can do is reflect and see what they did wrong. Might not have changed it to a win but might have gained more BXP. Plus, just shake it off.

If your really steamed over it, just walk away. Playing tilted is counterproductive. You may end up doing the exact opposite of what you did in the previous game to the extreme. Extreme aggressive sometimes ends up in yolocide. Extreme passive ends up as a virtual afk.

Better luck next time.

I would make the argument of Green team BBs not playing the objective VS any meaningful or spectacular red cruiser play.

In other words, the bull lets the cowboy win, NOT the other way around Clam...

Wrong.

A player in random can carry about 6 percent of the team.

I see top 3 on red team that won were cruisers.

I agree.  Then why bother to look at WR stats?  If all you play is Random they mean nothing.
