Curse of the timid player

Brought out the fearsome Krasny Krym because the game before some players were saying it is the worst ship in the game. While I agree she has HUGE drawbacks she can still be a useful ship in battle. I specked mine out for HE spam and AA.

Fought my butt off the whole game and was unfortunate to be on a team with VERY timid BB players. They ALL went to one side and camped while the enemy took 3 of the four caps. In the end they had 2 ships left while we had 5. I was Killed at the very end trying to cap and fight a GC which is an almost impossible task. All the while I'm begging for help from players who sat in the same cap the whole game. Result? We lost on points. Very frustrating but I think I proved my point the Krasny Krym has

a place in this game. I shot down 37 planes and scored a Kraken. Winning takes some form of risk so help out your team mates Dudes.

They weren't timid.  I have been reliably informed, on this very forum, that they have great situational awareness and were preserving themselves for the late game.  Or the next game... it's really hard to tell sometimes.

Maybe they thought it was Ranked, and were trying to save their stars...

@SkullDuggery05 The Donut is a blast because of what you said; for me it’s worked best as a destroyer killer; kind of like a T5 St Louis or Bogatyr.

Push up close and tight to rocks so bigger things can’t get an angle on you, and support your DDs by overwhelming Red DDs with HE spam. Then keep in cover and rain fire on bigger targets, or borrow an idea from Sweden and feed them Surstromming metal fishes.

lost a EASY sure win this morning with a 2 to 1 ship advantage and in the end it was 5 against 2.   The 2 ships chased them to the border and capped everything..did I mention they didn't have a DD?

Just don't know anymore.

People lose sight of the fact you need to take caps. Lately its all about people just wanting to wipe the other team. They'll chase a single ship to the back border just to kill 1 ship, ignoring the other 8 ships sitting in all 3 caps.

Problem is, good players can be "timid" and still pull their weight. (and then some)

Mediocre players do it because they see good players do it, but can only accomplish the not getting sunk part.

They mis-read "Solo Warrior" as "Sole Survivor."

This . Players threatening and controlling a cap from a couple lines back   vs 3 BBs steaming around the last island in the corner of the map when the enemy is already on the run.

More like they are too concerned over damage and kill farming to risk their own sinking by taking caps or lending support that they fear is too risky. Add in the fact that a bit too often they are clueless about the exact characteristics and roles of their ships

Common examples of players not understanding ships are assuming that every DD must be a torpedo boat, every DD must have smoke, saw a DD have good AA so surely my DD must have good AA, I am a torpedo boat so I should not use my guns even if they are great guns, I have guns as well as torpedoes so I surely must be able to go in guns blazing even if it’s a ship like Mutsuki or Asashio, Asashio has torpedoes so they must work against everything, ect... I could list a lot more things but you get the idea.

So if a player does not understand the characteristics of various ships they end up not only being inefficient but could end up completely ineffective.
