I see that potato players come in all sizes and performances in game.

 

I.e..

1) gonna stop right here and be broadside to everyone in my BB while I fire main guns guy/gal.

2) hmm wonder if there are torps coming from behind that island- guy/gal

3) It's a cap rush it!!!

4) Who put that island there for me to run into- guy/gal

6) What's radar doing picking me up behind this island?- guy/gal

7) Who needs a team when I have a Kremlin? - guy/gal

 

Please add to list....

You're talking about 95% of the player base, what are you intending to accomplish with this? :Smile_trollface:

The list is as long as my match count

Oh no you don't. You don't get to claim ALL of them. I can potato with the best of them too. 

Best guess is I go full potato 10% of the time with various lesser amounts the rest of my matches where sometimes I even get away with it.

Now you being elitist by setting a bar at 49%- potato is s state of being and mind.

Initially when I got my Kharb years ago I ran into every island on the map when trying to maneuver. - I was a high octane island rammer.

Did it with my Shim the other day... my autopilot is only for when I'm in zoom mode.  Took enemy Shim torps too.  Didn't even bother trying to move or dodge.

You forgot the most common potato of them all, the part-time potato.

This is by far the most common one, and I believe most of us have been one at some point and will revert to one given the right circumstances. It is when you do something, get obliterated and immediately think: "wow...I am that stupid".

Happens from time to time...

After 9K battles I still run into islands, and probably always will.

If you mean XVM that just makes things worse and the game more toxic :fish_palm:

Yup, same here

Really wish the Islands wouldn't jump out in front of me like that. Don't they know I have right of way???

8) the flip side to 6: the players in radar ships that intentionally don’t bring radar (yes I’m looking at you, spotter plane DM and the Riga from Flamu’s Twitter yesterday)

9)  I'm triggering hydro at spawn.

The amount of DDs I see triggering Smoke at spawn because they fat fingered the wrong key...done it myself numerous times as well...went to hit the speed boost..nope suddenly you're leaving smoke clouds behind you...

Lol I can think of lots:

  1. the Battleships that hang at the back the entire game and come out at the end of the game with full hp when the rest of the team dies
  2. the destroyer that dumps his torpedoes into you when you are clearly in the middle of a brawl
  3. the CV that only concentrates on one flank of the map trying to farm damage and completely ignores the other flank that needs help (that's me 90% of the time in carriers I have to admit)
  4. 90% of the team flanks to one side of the map and find nothing while the rest of the team find themselves fighting the entire enemy team. The 90% flank refuses to push and give support.
  5. destroyers hiding in smoke and farming damage refusing to spot or cap (excluding the gunbotes with the likes of Akizuki)
  6. those russian BBs players that think they are invincible in a brawl until you smack their broadside

If there's an actual list of bad players I'm sure my name is somewhere near the top. It's good to be king at something
