Same player... Same thing.  TWO BACK TO BACK ROUNDS!

When I see him in my very next round I type in chat .. OH NO NOT HIM!!!!  People ask who I am talking about, I just said, You will see. 

Once again have the game won on points.  NEVER fires a shot in his YAMMY the whole game, Hides behind rocks the whole time.  Team CRYING for him to take EASY shots  do ANYTHING.  

 I personally had a BB I turned broadside to him at 10k from his hiding place, already took 50% from him with torps.. HE WOULD NOT SHOOT!

2 minutes left ...all we have to do is go dark easy win on points.

He Rushes out , gets focused WE LOSE!

Rinse repeat,

Last round LITERALLY 3 seconds to go .. he dies same way we LOSE.

That's 2 games in a row, same guy , same ship , same actions.

This is not bad play,  this is the way he plays. Throwing games.

You SHOULD be able to black list players like him.. but I know that will never happen.

Get one of those about every three or four matches.  Getting two in a row isn't unusual.  Getting two in a row and being the same person and outcome, however, is unlucky.

For better or worse, the game is accessible to virtually everyone.  Gotta take the rough with the smooth.

More likely to see a familiar face when you hit the [Battle On] button immediately after a match, instead of going back to port, waiting a moment or two, then hitting [Battle].  Think I've pressed [Battle On] no more than ten times during my entire WoWS "career".  Usually take several minutes off after a particularly bad match, if not logging off altogether.

Same perhaps.

Pretty much always go back to port, because ‘Battle On’ always dumps you in a random, which can be tremendously irritating if you’re in a Co-op set up. (No camo or signals.)

Yeah but more often than not it is simple greed and not what the @Col_Nasty is describing which deserves a ticket with the replays.

I agree because that could so easily be a bit program as I have seen some that do sails around but do not shoot. Or else it is somebody intentionally throwing games.

By his description I see this being intentional. Maybe not to actually throw the match but that is the result too often as they may think that just surviving is earning them experience, maybe some but it is not a large amount, and are trying to bump it up at the end.

There are a lot of players who want to play well, but simply don't have the skill or won't invest the time to actually be decent at it.  They know they play poorly, but experience has taught them that by hiding and playing passively until the end of the match, they will extend their life in the battle.  If it's a stomp against the other team, they start to leave their "safe place" when there is about a 100 points to go.  If's it's a loss, they just fire twice before they are overwhelmed by the enemy team.

Close matches are too tricky for them.  They can see they are slightly ahead or behind on points, but there is no brainless way for them to contribute - so by default they just yolo out, hoping for a miracle.

Get used to it OP, it's only going to keep happening more, not less, as the migration of experienced players slowly drift away from this game.

I see players that are afk the whole match until they get spotted, and the instant they start taking damage they're suddenly alive and fighting.... badly. 

Have to assume it's a bot. Probably gets you slightly more wins than the typical YOLO bots that charge straight ahead and die first.

I've seen these types on occasion. They sure do cause my carefully laid torps to miss when they just take off. They move when fired on more than when spotted.

I’ve seen a few names with similar behavior.

Had a recent battle where they were 1v1 in a Bismarck to win the game against a Mainz with only 8,000 hp remaining.  The Mainz took him from 100% health to 0 while only taking 3,000 in return.

what he describes is illegal  xp leaching, not someone playing badly,

see it all the time esp in coops by BBs

they enter a game go hide or go on auto pilot do just enough not to be AFKed by computer

Then they go do something else, surf porn .. anything , comes back at end of game again just plays enough to not be AFK, perhaps pick off all the damaged ships left by his dead team jor goes grabs an uncontested cap (on auto pilot?).  Coops are esp vulnerable to this cause they have a good chance to win with behavior that will doom a team in ramdoms

you don't need a bot program to play like a bot and xp leach. Just run the game in the background while you surf and pop in from time to time

solution is to record all games, even sync jump ambush them, send tickets in with more than one replay to show a pattern and hope WG does their job,

 

TO WG

 you need to take these guys seriously and give them big bans, they are ruining the game for the majority and costing you money when people get mad and  and go watch TV instead, )like I  often do.

to be fair, WG doesn't claim there are no bots.  They claim that they have an appropriate amount of people working hard to detect and ban bots.  At least that's what they say every time somebody starts a "this guy is botting and he's been botting for a month" threads.

player need to follow up on their complaints and see if WG did anything (like..is the guy still gaming every day, )

If it is obvious WG did nothing, blast it in the forum (can't give the players name but can say WG did not ban or suspend )

make a big stink in the forum (in a nice way) and force wg to do something.

Its more work for us but we need to police the game, cause hands on botting -xp leaching is harder for an automated anti bot program to identify.

There is a guy every ranked season that throws games on purpose! I suppose he's so pathetic that he finds it fun!? Sadly, we can't name and shame, but he more or less loads in, goes to the furthest corner of the map, sits there and does nothing or spins around in circles, and then trash talks the team saying that we suck and what not. I always tell everyone on both teams to report him and send in a ticket with the replay if somebody is recording. Never does any good though, somehow he's back every season.

Mostly because as everyone knows, WG doesn't exactly have a good track record of being transparent or trustworthy. The fact that CCs are no longer allowed to discuss ships pre release should further cement my statement. I assume you were being sarcastic?

If you're talking about who I think you are, he's a very good player in a very good clan... but he seems to use Ranked mostly to troll his teammates.  Yeah, it's frustrating.

He doesn't have any tags attached to his name so maybe an alt account?

Bots are very possible to create but are also when a human watches them generally very obvious. Cheats though are pretty much limited to aim assist, which the secret WASD hack will neutralize, which now has to be a third party program instead of simply activating the co-op bot aiming system and WASD also works on them but they react so fast it doe not work as well.

Had a Roma in ranked today. Didn't move the entire match until it started getting fired at, similar to what others have said. Luckily we won without it but it is quite annoying.

Was in a COOP match today where two players from the same Clan started shooting at each other for the first three minutes of the game........and, were having a blast damaging each other !!! So???  I'll shoot you flags off !  No, I'll shoot your spotter plane...........watch this !!!!  Tracers going back and forth as we advanced.....  Come to think of it, I didn't see any going at the bad guys????  Oh well...........they had fun !

Point is:  everyone is free to explore whatever "fun" is to us.......... Who cares if a player's front door bell rang unexpectedly and his ship was AFK.....so?  It's a silly game.........geeze. BOTs...........our host is their control measure.

Again, some players like to "frustrate" other players and that is fun to them !  No rules that says you can't do stuff to antagonize others !  Kill stealing is a favorite:  you know, the Yammy way in the back that isn't firing until your target is 95% dead and BLAM, he gets the kill..............from across the map.........all of the time...........every game that day........

There are players in this game with dozens of accounts..........so they can..................uh huh, create mischief.......  And, that is fun to them.

We had a clan ritual in another game that when we deployed as a clan, each player would shoot at the feet of the Commander's mech when passing him after deploying from a drop ship.  An invited guest one night went off the deep end because we all shot the Commander, damaging his right foot.....!  We all got reported and the CC/CM knew of our antics and usually wrote us a PM that said:  "you guys are so odd........behave........"

Intentionally throwing a game falls under unsporting conduct which is against the rules in the EULA.
