When I got up this morning and got on line I was just going to random, but I got in game and just thought i will just have look at the flag they are giving away for the event, that was the first mistake I made.

Great its the Kriegsmarrine flag it will look cool on some of my German ships, then I checked out the ship tiers and thought OK 6 /7  I will try once again another bad mistake.

 Why do I do this to myself I should have known better.

As far as I can... They're playing as they would if they were on the defensive... I can't fault them for that... That is how you position yourself on this map as de defenders...

Yeah OK the only problem with that is we are down two caps to one, holding a defensive stance wont get us caps.

Ok well if your referring to me I have in any way shape or form felt I was KOTS material far from it.

At the start of match I asked for a fast BB to coming support me and another DD at B cap, one BB said yes, when I got in there the other DD bolted so I tried to get out to and got smashed, looked at my mini map only to that my so called support and the rest of the team sitting behind islands.

Kind of frustrating when you go do your job in a DD only to be given the short shaft for the effort.

 

cheers

Given that you are dead 5 minutes in, you didn't do your job very well. 

The island chains that run east to west make it very difficult for either side to support the mid fight, especially early on. Try to go in as a cruiser or BB and these islands will trap you if something goes wrong. 

Z-39 also has excellent concealment and HP pool, so you shouldn't be dying this early unless you make major mistakes or detonate. 

I get that we are all human and are not expected to play perfectly, but all too often I see players quick to point out other's misplays while ignoring their own obvious mistakes. Those are the kind of players that never get better, no matter how much they play.

Dying this early in in the middle means you were focused and overextended before your team could keep their guns in check.  

My advice?  If you want to take middle on this map or most in general where there's little cover (and do this admittedly contesting 75% of the time easily), consider getting close to the cap then turning out while reversing, to eventually reverse into the cap.  Angle your guns at where another DD would be, and if you get heavily focused, zoom away while smoking.  

Positioning like this to kite and disengage will save you precious DD HP, and let you live easier.

That is not a player issue, this problem falls on the lap of the DEVs and how they want us to play, based on the capabilities of the fleet ships in the match...

I play this map literally hundreds of times. What they're doing is not out of the ordinary or out of character.

No, what I ment was that recent KOTS carried over into that mentality. 

I too asked for help and was ignored as they chased a cruiser away from caps or hid behind islands.
