RANT - All 3 horrors upon us all yesterday ! the Apocalypse is here !

I couldn't believe this was happening yesterday, but it did, & I tried different parts of the day...

 

We had ultra bad MM, bad to very bad potato teams. AND RNGesus !!

 

I could understand the potato players being on a weekend, that's normal, but to have all 3 all day, even if I logged off for a few hours, is just beyond a joke.

 

Now, I am the first to admit my win rate is bad, as you all know, I don't much care for it, But despite that I am a pretty good player, & my damage had been improving to about a minimum of at least 50,000 - 60,000 or more per match, even on potato days,  (insert comments here, to laugh at my base damage if you must.                                  )

but, when RNG takes over, then my damage falls, & even shots that normally hit or do damage, bounces, or doesn't hit at all...

 

This too, grudgingly is acceptable as we all know it happens

 

Same with the stupid MM, we all know it happens, not every match normally, but makes it very uncomfortable being say a tier 6 in a tier 8 or 9 battle, or tier 5 in a tier 8 battle..

I know the word is that the MM isn't supposed to let this happen but it does, the other day we had south Carolina's in a konig/arizona/Cleveland match, & a kawachi in a new Mexico match...

 

But, until yesterday (Sunday), I have never experienced all 3 demons ALL day...

 

Could the +200% have any deciding factor On these demons?  Do using premium ships have any bearing on how much punishment you are to experience?  Do  playing premium ships open you up to be in bigger tiers, or worse MM?  

 

It seemed to me that it was happening no matter what ship I played, premium or otherwise, but why oh why, was I put with crap players in almost EVERY match??? Is it because the MM knows I'm a good player? 

The only matches I won, were ones of low scoring, so I never got much out of making use of the +200%,  how can I make good use of it when the game deliberately makes me be in bad teams to lose every match, & then gives me a token small win, to remove the bonus, so that I can't have a big win??

 

It's like playing on the pokies, you put $50 in, you lose most of it, then you win $5... You leave wondering what the point was..

 

Does the game go into bad mode when events like this happen?

:izmena::angry:

 

Your thoughts & theories please... , + no joking or slamming my win rate, stats or amount of damage done per game please..

I had quite a few good games until trying with the Iowa and each game was dismal - it was the green team vs pro team every time and after 5 games I switched it off, before the keyboard went through the monitor.

 

I watched a Zao captain totally abandon a Montana and leave it to get burnt to death by a DD whilst also getting hit by a Missouri.   I was virtually screaming at the Zao to get back into the fight.....which he did, after the Montana was sunk and then proceeded to get sunk himself.

 

The quality of teamwork seemed to be the issue.

 

I do wish the Match Making could balance out the teams based on some skill level though - those close games are always the most fun.

There’re two styles of games, one a fast placed all in shoot them up and the other slower using strategies.


For me it’s the latter, it’s not “boring”, it’s satisfying, far better engagements with tactics than just rushing in. And when teams are makeup of strategizing players the game last alot longer and are more balance, rewarding and its feels like you haven’t just wasted your time.


But sadly WG thinks the game should move at a faster place. E.g. developers talking about eliminating bow on tactics, stealth firing and sniping (yet some ships are design that way). Faster placed means for more arcade features like minmap ship class names, radio location and more razzle dazzle.


All this means more potato players filling the queue, unskilled, shoot them up and rush in and die players. With so many more potato players there far more un-balanced games than ever before. With more un-balance games the odds of having a run of bad games is much higher and you Ordrazz just got the thick end of randomization, the thick end of WG push.


I still think it’s random but just the odds for un-balance games are far higher.

Yes. Aside from it being on a weekend.

I am with BuckleUp - I like the somewhat fast paced nature of the game as it fits in well with family life, but with a good chunk of strategy as well.  Nothing better than working with team mates, Cruisers clearing out the DDs, DDs laying down smoke, BBs positioned well to tank some damage - and a decent sprawl of tactics really help, I was totally crap in the Amagi until I learnt to play her like the drunk at a party - all over the place, causing trouble at every opportunity.......what a good feeling it was to start getting some good games with her.  My latest journey with Izumo has been similar. 

 

And I don't mind getting smashed by a player that knows exactly how to play their ship and hit me where it hurts, but I do mind getting wrecked when I am just with a fleet of captains who are just aimless.

Is that a faildiv you are talking about?

 

OTOH, I have been in a same boat with you yesterday (Sunday). Lucky 7 streak of losses in a row where many of them I was top exp in as a bottom tier. RNG in some/many games are really merciful (/s). You know it's not your day when your damage per shot is consistently less than overpen damage. (I remembered getting only 17k out of 41 hits on broadsiding targets in my NC a few months ago.)

Just a bad day, mate. 

 

My best recommendation - sail in an Arizona on potato weekends. The number of cruisers that will sail broadside for you is mouth watering. Aim and KA BOOM.

If you have a bad team+losing streak just stop playing for a while and come back later, also playing in division helps too.

Yesterday, 4/5 of my BBs, when we spawned north in North Domination, headed to D cap.

 

No doubt, our team became target practice.

 

WG MM when?

Hey mate well you played 25 games yesterday and base on this you actually averaged higher win rate than your overall average.  While i suspect your comments expressed that these where low scoring games, the fact is that you did improve overall on the day.   I had a shocking Saturday but made up for it Sunday.... which overall means i did better than my average by about 10%.  and about 4.5% over the period of 7 days.  While your weekend was not a blinding success and the MM stuff you up, you still improved so chin up.

Im actually starting to wonder if it is better to have bad aim. I have had that many salvos land in a circle around the ship who didn't get hit by any of them. Had I aimed slightly off they would have got hit by a few shells.

Yesterday, I put a full AP salvo right into the waterline of a Shchors and got 10 overpens for some weird reason. Next battle I got detted by the first AP shell that hit me while not even detected.

What ship were you using that resulted in the 10 overpens and from what range?

​To me, the stats indicate whether one is improving in game or the reverse. I tend to "think" about how I performed and how do I improve to avoid making the same mistakes especially coming out of a lost battle.
