There is a reason people chose not to play the competitive games, the toxic crap you are exposed to in chat.

It's ok to be able to mute/block one or two players, but it gets really bad when you have half the team piling it on each other.    

I enjoy competitive play, but someone is going to lose and when it starts to go downhill, too often it just turns into a finger pointing exercise for many.  Usually, the weakest players on the team.

 

I know this horse has been flogged skinless, I just really wish they could come up with a better system for dealing with it.

It's the nature of the anonymous internet.

Everyone is a tough guy when their nose can't get pushed in.

And the bones ground into powder. Fee Fi Fo Fum I smell the blood of one come undone (in ranked)

Yep, more rewards brings everybody out of the woodworks. 
Thankful WG gave us the “mute” option.

And yes, today was loss after loss after loss and a lot of toxicity......  Bad enough losing the same way game after game too...  So, I'm taking a few days off and will try again later.

I liked that they used it in their trailers and intro's..........  Because it seemed Germaine:  coming from the man who created an apocalypse scenario in the Southern US during the Civil War.....  There were cities in the South that looked like they came from the Fallout series....!!!   I'm playing FO4 when I get bored with losing in Ranked matches.   I can't seem to get to 14 no matter  what I do.???

I'd take decent salty players over nice potatoes -- ranked isn't about being nice, it's about winning.  Co op is where you go for nice, randoms is where you go for the mix of them and ranked is where the salt flows and you best be able to handle your own.  Give me decent salty over those the potato claiming "this is a team game so I can do ranked too"

Ranked has always been a big Salt Lake.

 

What's funny is I could play a FPS game like Battlefield, Call of Duty, and the players are more mellow.

Fiji any day.

I played the Fiji for several battles. It's a good cruiser at tier VII. In fact, I like it better at tier VII than the Minotaur at tier X.

Are we playing the same game?  Ranked has 8 year olds playing it daily..........you do realize that???  Those ships that crash into an Island and never fire a shot???  Or, every match I've been in these past two days you get conversations like:  "Hey Sims, are you going to do something???  Anything???"  "Would you please shoot something !!............and, in chat you read" what key changes the ammo.........??"  You may be right in concept...........but, the hard reality is that it's a crap shoot as too how many grade schoolers you have on your team......  An adult potato would at least give you a chance......

It's the other way around.  The locations in the game look like real places because they are real places and are modeled after them.  Then made to look like those real places might, if the events of the Fallout games had happened.

You can go to WV for example and walk into some of the actual buildings, that exist in the FO76 game, etc.

It is a good ship and I like it as well.   Haven't tried it in ranked because so far, the three I have been in were 100% one way stomps.....  So much so, I'm giving Ranked a break.

I know.........  Been playing that series since inception.  Haven't taken on FO76 because all of my FO friends have hated it.....   Heck, I'm replaying 4 when I get tired of losing in this game.  Even saw a COOP loss this morning???

76 isn't the best, that's for sure.  It's a fun time though if you like the series and can look past it's faults.  For the price, I wouldn't skip it entirely.

Sounds like a target rich environment to mine Salt.  Turn off the chat, pour 3 fingers of your favorite adult beverage and fire up a Tier 7 Smolensk ... :Smile_trollface:

What's hated most at Tier 7?  Other than Belfast I suppose.

Actually, I'd bet the Worst ship to play would cause more angst than the most OP ship.

There is a reasonable expectation that people who choose to play a more competitive mode will be.... More competitive. The lazy, low-skill playstyles that are passable in operations and coop don't work in randoms and are absolutely unacceptable in ranked. If you are playing badly, expect to be informed and prepared to quickly make the changes. Otherwise you better put on nomex, you deserve to get flamed and folks are gonna pile it on because....

THEY DONT WANT TO WASTE TIME LOSING BECAUSE OTHER PEOPLE ARE INCONSIDERATE POTATOES.
