So, what's you guys opinion on this subject?

for me, i kinda agree with jingles.

if you play for "fun" that is intentionally derping around, you're kinda selfish because some people play to win, and by doing that you take away their "fun"

 :hmm: Using the same logic, you can say that the serious players spoil the derpers' fun.

Interesting view, but the serious players wont spoil the derpers fun, why? because they will derp around nonetheless, while the serious player can lose a game because of that and nothing they can do about that

If I'm about to troll/derp/toy with the enemy, I'll make sure that:

  • The team knows what I'm going to do (bonus point if they support my shenanigans) by telling them in the chat.
  • I absolutely certain my team are going to win when I'm dead.
  • I can control the victim.

If neither of those checks, i won't do stupid things. I understand that there would be 'serious' players ready to unleash 7 karma to me in one sweep if my team lost so i will take consideration to it.

 

But then again, if you're looking for serious stuff, there are Ranked Battle & Team Battle. You're playing Random Battle after all, what do you expect?

Lol, even when you're derping around I'm pretty sure you still took down at least one enemy :P

Anyway, ranked and team battles doesn't always available so the serious players have to play random at some point

Yep, me too, but there's a different between playing for fun and intentionally derping around like in that jingles video.

And yes we need to let loose sometimes, I do derp around too but I do that in co-op

+1 sir.

 

May I remind you people that this is a GAME.

 

GAMES are played for fun.

 

If you are not having fun, then it is no longer a GAME.

Is there a definition to fun in WOWS?
Is it analogous to aimlessly derping around or goin YOLO?
Or is it spreading salt and hitting on other players in chat?
 

To me fun is when you get see wondrous moments like the perfect draft saving you from a torpedo destined to hit you, getting to see a detonation up close and other beyond usual events that this game makes us witness.

How true. No matter how frustrating it can be some times there are always those moments that make up for it.

The satisfaction of seeing your damage counter ticking over (from fire or flooding)for minutes after you've sunk.  

Doing well when MM makes you the lowest Tier ship in a match.

If its stupid and it works it ain't stupid.

But how many players in this server that can pull that of? Beside the ones in the forum that is.

 

 

Anyway, I started this thread because I see a lot of players in game and in forum complaining about losses and how derpy their teammates are, while thinking about that, jingles released an interesting video, and it kinda goes from there.

Fun for me is seeing huge numbers in my overall damage dealt. If i have <50k damage meant i was not able to have fun. I dont really care if i managed to get kills or not. My first 700 games, i was just playing for fun (seeing ships and such). My average damage before was below average. Now, i'm playing the game seriously. I just want my average damage and exp to increase. Since I dont have absolute control with my winrate, i just let fate control it.

I only Derp with the ARP Kongō series but even then I still kick the enemy's back end hard before I die

Then I realised it screws my stats

So I take total Derp to coop instead

Agreed

Please troll only when you sure the team can still win after your death

 

So, what's you guys opinion on this subject?

if you play for "fun" that is intentionally derping around, you're kinda selfish because some people play to win, and by doing that you take away their "fun"

Those derp guys should go coop... fun for them anyways

does playing well and helping your team not fun at all? playing for fun aren't just derping and doing selfish stuff.

 

Well, here's the thing, "fun" is relative, what sounds fun for you might not be fun for the others, have you watched Jingles video that i posted? the idea of fun for those guys are charging the channel in between two islands in two brothers, and that's not really helping their team is it?

yeah i have watched(although dint finished)i just wanna remind it again because thats how important it is. As for the more serious players being dragged down by "those" kind of people, well, that is why its  called random battles. At a competetive scene  like ranked now thats a problem

The only thing nobody can disagree to..

 

"Winning is FUN"

 

Well of course, at the end of the day, this game is still a competitive game, there won't be ranked and team battles if this game isn't competitive.

At ranks 22-6, people do all sorts of stupid things, although if you are at rank 5 and below and you derp...

 

Get ready for the hail of salt and -ve karma
