Why do I put myself through this torture.

Why is it players go to great lengths to lose games when victory is in sight.

No different than in Randoms, people get tunnel vision and only see getting kills. Worry about you and forget about them.

Eh, it happens dude.

To put it in perspective, my Dr says I need surgery in the right hand next Tuesday.

While I was poised myself to go up silver this week and give it a go, I have decided, nope.

In terms of the game and the hand, I will just casually play than brutally drag my lethargic hand into next week's surgery.

If it is that bad, then step away from it.

Are the rewards worth the risk of aggravating players? No.

Of course, maybe a division might help. But I myself don't division. This is my way.

Unfortunately, you are experiencing unprecedented groups of players that just want to farm the tiers instead.

Sadly, this is a Truth that WG has been unable to discourage from the very beginning.

Despite qualifiers, it is just another numbers game. If you see a player slinging fire, but not coordinating or helping save for ducking away from the fight until the end (CVs excluded), then that is a clear indication.

I have no solution for this I could suggest. It is a flawed game mode. But perhaps it is so because of the incentives.

Just keep things in perspective.

Are you having fun?

The game is not formatted to fit your tactic criteria... Therefor, the others who play with you don;t share your vision...

When WG invents and implements telepathic powers in two years (Its under NDA/embargo status)... Then things will look up for you :Smile_honoring:

I got up to 2 & 1 to go, and then lost 6 games in a row before logging off.

at least I saved 5/6 stars, so still rank 2 for tomorrow's attempt.

Wait. Wait.  I have an incoming telepathic message from Navalpride33..."Spot DD, spot DD! I got Dead Eye and I see that Minotaur I want me some beef 🍖 moooooooo!"

Wow, that gave me a massive headache, but okay. Spotting that Minotaur for ya. Poor Moocifer.  😂

I know the pain mates, had been pivoting on Rank 2 for 2 nights... I'm about to cheat and play a DD.

The ancient art of Chi Ting in a DD is a skill passed down from the masters of old. Grasshopper and FlamingButt Dragon teach these extensively along with jazz flute lessons.

There are many styles.

Lizard 🦎, likes rocks.

Ghost 👻, an apparition that strikes quietly.

Dragon, smokes a lot, but will use 👻 and 🦎 technique. Uses fire 🔥.

Snake on skis 🎿 🐍, can't hide but hard to hit because real fast.

Enemies of DD:

Radar cruisers, but Dead Eye make them go bye bye.

CVs, still a problem, but someday, someday, bang! stinger missle, got you!

BBs that love HE, we see you there Conqueror and Thunderer, we will get real close, real close.... "From Hell's heart, I stab at thee!"

BBs with secondary builds, okay we approach with caution and we borrow the Bat-Shield from TV show Batman '66 to get close. Maybe use dead body of team mate cruiser okay. (Praying Mantis Style)

And I thought I am the only Mantis Style thinker who uses the upside down hulks of sunk cruisers as defense closing in against BB's with adequate Secondaries in a DD.

Now that everyone knows about this little trick...

Yes, I was doing it a lot last year, only I made a lot of MacGruber references with it.

Smaller teams magnify (and make more obvious) the errors of individual players, not to mention the increased mental/emotional investment in the outcome. 

My (highly unscientific anecdotal) observation is that there has been a great amount of turnover in the playerbase in the last year and a half. A number of highly skilled players I recognize by name were MIA, so I have looked on occasion, and a number of them have not played since last summer.
