... and whether or not they're AFK. You just don't.

No, it's not 'counter intelligence', and 'do they believe me?' is not an argument either.

I've been known to lie about it. More often, I have been known to type false information in the group chat like I was some noob that didn't know the difference between green and white chat text. I also once typed the absolute truth that I was going to be pumping a constant flow of torpedoes into the center gap on two brothers, and they actually thought I was lying! So many torpedo hits that day, lol!

Of  course  you could always lie and say a couple of your DDs are AFK or the whole damn idiot team is forming a clockwise lemming train:Smile_trollface:

AHHH yes the ole Chat distraction...

I love those guys who have that whole cut n pasted paragraph they post in the first three seconds..

I'm thinking about buying  X ship or Y Ship , what do you all think?  etc.

It just kills me when noobs all stop what they are doing and type for the rest of the match arguing LOL

Some actually STOP and chart..

Amazing that people still fall for it.

I prefer the pineapple on pizza: yes or no? I feel it gets more responses in chat and distracts better.

I've not dimed my own team's positions out, but I used to get involved with some gamesmanship in Randoms.

 

One of my favorites:

1.  Warn my team in Team Chat not to do what I'm about to say in Open Match Chat.

2.  Announce in Open Match Chat something like:

- "The patch added the ability to see who has cheats enabled.  You can press the T key and see who they are."

- "CVs suck, honk your horn with T key if you agree." <--- DD players most especially hate CVs, so this was pretty fun one to do.

Or some other nonsense.  Sometimes I'd see smoke coming out the reds' spawn areas, so I know it worked.

 

Been ages since I've done this though.

It’s interesting you stated this. Just had that exact thing happen few days back. Never considered it could be a distraction tactic lol. Here’s the match results.

I'll admit, I'm guilty of that sometimes, using Chat as a distraction tool (especially when I sink too early ;P)

At the beginning of a game, I frequently type "Reds, may your barrels be crooked, your torpedoes limp, and may your rockets and bombs detonate prematurely!"

It usually generates some banter between the teams during that first minute+ of no action.

I'm one of "those guys" at the start of a match...

"Okay, so everybody up the middle?"

"Oops" 

or

"We have been trying to reach you about your ships warranty"

or

"I just saved a bunch of money by switching my ship insurance." 

or

"Raid Shadow Legends, use code "Onion" to never be spammed again!"

I used to use the "honk your horn with T if you agree" one myself, as a DD main. Except I failed to tell my teammates not to do it... I got some actual horns from some of them, but those who had smoke, pressed T... I screwed over my own team, and I am not at all ashamed of myself for it XD

I more often use the line "May your shells fly true, but your aim suck!"

If the other team is going to win no matter what I don't have a problem. All being quiet about where the ship is only wastes the other teams time. Now if there is any chance that your team could still win I will gladly sit back and watch.
