A ship should NEVER get stuck...especially in Ranked

It shouldn’t even be possible, but there it was: Archipelago was the map...about ten minutes ago.  Making a turn with my lovely super-nerfed Shiny horse and...whap, into the side of an island.  No problem, I’ll back up...umm, max rudder left...nothing.  Max rudder right...back up for a split second...and, nope.  So I go mid-rudder...nothing.  Full ahead?  Nothing.  

Half the match I’m sitting there, completely stuck.  Bad enough Ranked finally gets back to Tier 7 and now everybody has a hyper-accurate ship except me AND I get stuck.  

Really, World of Warships, I think you guys need to introduce the coronavirus into Ranked with it specifically targeting German battlecruisers with triple 11” guns only and driven by Americans from Buffalo, NY...it’s the only way to make sure you really pi$$ me off even more than I already am.

8 kills with the exact same Shiny horse two nights ago with only the aiming flag on.  Into Ranked with every flag on...can’t hit a thing.

Stopped reading after the "super nerf" comment.  No need to make up lies just because you're upset.

Okay, the “super-nerf” part was a bit excessive, but the Shiny horse used to be a great ship.  

The stupid flag that reduces dispersion...sorry, I don’t memorize their names.

Perhaps you are referring to the stupid camo that reduces dispersion?

No, I’m referring to the stupid signal flag second from the top left...next to the AA flag.  

Duff’s wings tend to be too hot for me...hey, how do you know about Duff’s?

So the -5% to secondary dispersion, aka secondary flag.

My worst beachings have been because I was trying real hard not to beach, max turn, and end up fishtailing into a spot with blocks fore and aft. It has actually gotten better. Used to be some spots where I found myself absolutely trapped but this seems to happen less often so WG must have done something. My driving is about the same. Some traps may still exist and may depend on the size of the ship you're driving (and whether WG is personally out to get you:Smile_trollface:)

That only affects secondary guns.  It doesn't affect accuracy of the main guns at all.

I know how you feel about getting stuck.  I did that in clan battles last night.  I got my Des Moines stuck on an island and it cost me my life and probably contributed to the loss of the game, since the game was really close at the end.

Its the exact same ship. It just enjoyed being top tier a majority of the time so it got to crush t5 cruisers.

The GLUE islands are the worse. Where it's literally just your nose touching  the island, and yet backing up just doesn't work, AT ALL. 

The whole, your ship is stuck by unseen underwater rocks is a mechanic that just needs to be eliminated.

I used to live in Buffalo. Now in Virginia. Whenever I go back “home” I need my Duff’s fix.

Generally (but not always), you can get unstuck eventually. Problem is usually having that time. If you are spotted, expect to die before you get loose. If unspotted (and not a CV) can your team afford to be without your services for the minute or more it may take to wiggle free.

I've found if it is going to be close, go ahead and ram the damn island. Much faster to just reverse and get back underway than trying to wiggle free. Hoping that you might just brush by can take you out of the fight for a long time if not permanently. Problem is, grounding almost always occurs when you head is in the scope looking everywhere except at the island that warning buzzer is telling you about.
