Anyone think that it'd be nice if we had an option to say Yes or No for receiving the First Win. Maybe you had a really crappy game or accidently chose to go into co-op when you meant to go into Random. Or maybe the game kept booting you from the game for no discernible reason.

The first 2 reasons just sound like sour grapes.  The last, though, is spot on.  I cannot count the number of times the game has locked up or booted me out.

No thanks. Its -first- win. So if you had a lousy game sorry. Try again tomorrow. Everyone has a crappy game from time to time. Deal with it like the rest of us. No reason to cry on the forums just cause you had a bad game.

 

Nothing to see here.

What if you take a couple big hits right at the start of things through sheer RNG? I once got a double citadel on a MInotaur at 20k in my Bismarck. A big hit at the start may not kill you, but it could force you to play a lot more cautiously than you would otherwise. And there are times I've meant to go into a Random game, but muscle memory would get the better of me. Besides, you'd still need to actually win the game in order to get the bonus. You could elect to not get the bonus and then spend the next ten games trying to get another win.

Sounds to me like you are trying to cherry pick things so that you can use your best game as the first win bonus. That's not how this works. I would say you can always division to try and get better chances at a good game but then again... Suck it up. You had a bad game. Deal with it and move on.

I found when I had connection issues to go into a Training Room and sit for 20 minutes...   let it lockup...

Keep trying until it clears up.

Yeah I cleared the issue up just by exiting the game and reloading. Still a little annoyed that I didn't get my first win bonus. Oh well, this is part of the reason I grind CVs in Co-op.

If you're having connection issues, it may be difficult to tell the server to "reject" the first-win bonus.

I mean, it could just be like the surveys you occasionally see at the end of each battle. Before the results screen, it'll ask you if you want to apply the First Win Bonus and you just select Yes or No.

It's a temporary bonus, no need to fiddle with it and make it an on and off switch, if you lose, you lose, are people going to want camos, signals, special flags back when they lose, no, shouldn't be that way.

opting out entirely would be a option, maybe. In my mind. But to toggle it as your going into a fight? Thats a bit much. A blanket toggle could be useful.

So, if you die early and start a new game, you'd be tying up bandwidth waiting to respond to a survey.  In addition, @Capt_JollyRoger noted earlier would mean that you would cherry pick your results.

Who? Regardless, I'd argue that you really couldn't since you'd still need a win. And maybe as something of a fallacy, you'd either need to stay in the battle until the end in order to have the option of making a decision or you would get the First Win automatically.

Why not just switch ships between battles?  You get more xp that way and don't have to worry about not having a first win bonus on your best game of the night ( if that is the important thing to you ) .
