Getting Good

It takes a while, but it can be done to a certain level, I'm talking about the full range of captian skills

 

Where others may continually run 200k damage it took me 2300 battles to get to the 20K damage average, this last 500 battles since using a warship BB has forced patience that has been making for a more exacting experience, this means

 

Sussing out the battlefield, making a few simple plans for myself that will help the team to a victory. This is a very dynamic game, skills used at low tiers don't help the only one is learning to shoot

Watching what others do and how to help, this has only happened since being a BB Captain and having to think a lot more than a charge and rush to kill.

 

I have indeed "got good" but this should really be more like " don't die as fast and have learnt to help others" I'll take it.

 

Team work although difficult to encourage plays a huge part and thinking "I'll save the day" doesn't work.

The amount of times I've destroyed enough to win the battle... we don't win

The amount of times I've lasted 2 minutes and scored 5k damage and won is just the same

 

Each ship seems to take its own life even going from the Kaiser to the Koenig have definite changes, these constant BB battles have destroyed any ability I was having with the Hipper

 

Tuff game this

 

Just saying out loud, seems I can on this forum, more rhetorical than anything else.

It's been a gradual progression not a night to day experience, it's not like a light going on, this is knew for me as Ive never had such a slow learning curve in anything in life except this WOWs you find without doing anything you just do better..I think I did my post because it has been a long journey and many times much frustrations to getting average...hope it encourages others

 

I remember a high tier player playing with us in a tier 2 match when I first started-ish and how he had full control over what was going on, we still lost but that wasn't the point, I'm finding I'm sort of doing most of what he was doing, not to his level of course.

I recall fighting you in one occasion while you were using your Hipper.

 

You charged in against 3 ships, one of which was a Yamato, while you were in open waters after the rest of the team on your side got decimated.

 

There are times where you need to know when to engage. Hipper doesn't have BB armor.

You know sometimes it's hard to break what's in you and substitute intelligence..the old charge-in and die is a hard one to break and left over silly tactics of a new person

Consider finding someone to div with.

 

Have someone tell you when you're making mistakes, do the same for them, help out when they're in trouble, etc.

Watch YouTube videos, I do recommend the passive-aggressive play style, like Notser and flamu. Use island as cover and try staying alive as long as possible, know when to charge enemy straight up and try limiting the number of enemy that can engage you. And know your ships capabilities.

 

I can only thank those YouTubers and fellow player who gives me tons of advice, I have no idea what kind of terrible player I would be without them

I recommend Business6 too, specially those who enjoy BB brawling.

Matey can I annoy you on what you say

 

Do you mean to find a good player and invite him to a team?, give up Random Battles ? Do a "be a teamy with me ?" post

 

I am not being sarcastic, I don't run that way

 

Or feel free to just ignore this noob reply, it's what the wife does with an expert ability (no one likes her anyway :))

Dont have to be "Good" you can actually learn from any player around you, see what work and not working and see what you can imply to ur gameplay and how you can improve it.

 

But by finding "Good" player to watch or ask, you can shortening the process because watching how good player play you can just try copying the gameplay and most of the time it will actually work for you as well.

Situation awareness, prioritising targets, game plan ahead if you are facing 2+ ships, think about what the enemy will be doing and counter it, learn to tank damage efficiently and lastly you need to trust your shots, so your aim needs to be spot on.

 

The make or break is if RNGesus is on your side =D.

 

Thats life as a BB player.
