Back to School not worth the aggravation

I just completed 5 Submarine battles in my Tier VI battleships.  The reward boosts were nice but I am not up for more aggravation.  Five battles, five loses, and except for the submarines there was only 1 other live player TOTAL in all five games.  I'm not sure how much more of this FUN I can stand.

Yea I kinda found it amusing that the rewards for just playing 5 battles are so good and the reward for getting 3 wins is so poor in comparison. I get that they need more BBs to play for testing so why make it for wins?

The ability to earn stuff is always good, just think this one is a bit off the mark.

After I made my rant post last night I teamed up with a clan mate.  One of us would drive the BB, the other a support ship.  As I recall, we went 6 for 7 doing it this way.  Otherwise, playing a BB for the rewards makes for a long day.  

For me personally, I'd rather wait in the queue longer and play with fewer bots.  Depending on them to help secure the win is like pouring water uphill, or.....  :cap_hmm:

If you have the option try the PEF or the Normandie. They are Amazing in the sub battles.

Yeah the slow BB's need to be screened. You get one on one and well.... your done lol. The faster BB's can keep more distance and can out cap the subs if forced into a one on one.

Whatever, the rewards are just not there to draw in other players.  I broke down and tried another battle just now and there were actually TWO non-sub players with me, a CV and a DD, the latter of which died almost immediately.

And, of course, bots do not screen.  They rush in towards the closest opponent and either they torp each other or they ram.

I have 9 T6 ships. I play the 3 Subs, alternating a Sub then a T6 non Sub ship until I play 6 Sub battles.

If a T6 BB randoms, I play that. 

I think the reason players are frustrated is most are playing their 3 Subs in this test mode and WG has to use lots of Bots.

So, the results (Stats/ Spread Sheet) WG gets out of this will be of limited use because this test is not 100% human players.

So there's a reward(s) for testing Subs & non Subs? Fine.

Yeah, true we a getting an Idea of what new meta will be but we are not close to being there yet. Will not fully happen until they are in randoms.
