Tis' simple.

 

Choose between suffering crippling defeats with 1k base exp, but over 70k damage dealt. You will always blow up, leaving you with repair bills.

or

Being carried in a 3-man division with unicum-level WR, but only get 300 base exp and little-to-no damage. You will always leave without a scratch.

It's not really mutually exclusive and you can have great games while on-div.

I'm not one to talk though since I rarely div and when I do, I do worse in it since I'm the one to adjust my playstyle to my friends.

 

And if you go aggressive while on div, it's really good to know that you'll have 1 or 2 ships that will support your endeavor.

(No matter how "Banzai Charge! :izmena:" it tends to be)

At least, that's what I'd like to think. :teethhappy:

 

tl;dr: DIV!

I'd prefer the first option..

Top Exp even on defeat is still a win for me, exp (and credits) matters more..

And if both team actually fighting each other, there will be more exp & credits thrown all over the place so everyone can earn decent rewards..

Exactly this ^^

I rarely see divisions do well as they are to busy worrying what their friends are doing and looking out for each other rather than supporting the whole team and it's objective.

Lone wolf approach for me always, supporting those around me where possible with the match objective foremost in my mind.

Why not both? It's not like you can't win a lot in solo nor you can't have good performance in div.

 

But if I have to choose, I'll pick the first one. I like seeing big damage numbers in my result screen. :3

Winning is everything, it is what you are supposed to do in a PvP game.

I will look back and improve on my skill if I didn`t do so well on a particular match.

Who cares about win rates, enjoy yourself and play the game how you want it.

 

If the team is losing, then so be it. Play your ship and deal as much damage or outplay some of the other ships and sink them. Meanwhile stay alive, and reduce the repair bill =D.

Play with unicums and learn from them. You can gitgud very fast.

I prefer high win rate, high damage and high exp. They seem very related to each other. If you think you only care about high exp but not high win rate, then this is sort of contradictory. You need to have wins to maintain good exp gains. 

 

For example, when I try beating dead horses in:

solo: win rate 47%, average damage 49K, average xp 1K, survival 47%

2div: win rate 60%, average damage 45K, average xp 900, survival 47% (mostly because I play low tier in 2div)

3div: win rate 66%, average damage 53K, average xp 1.2K, survival 62%

 

So you can see, 3div is better in every aspect. I don't know why that has to be two alternative choices. (true I played only few games, and just an average, but this proves your claim is wrong).

 

I wonder why is this even a hard choice. You div with Unicums, you do massive damage, win the match, get massive exp bonus for your effort. All win situation is what I see. I also play only in a division of Unicums since winning is fun for me and I want to reach DeathSkyz' numbers :D

Always carry your own weight at least. 

its a teamgame, winrate is not how to measure your play (good or bad - like football, a single player cant always carry their team) but personal performance is. 

 

so option 1 for me
