Frustrated & Salty

There are probably some people here who are not wanting or willing to buy Premium Time, signals etc and that's all cool. I choose to spend "some" money on the game because i like to support WG in their en-devour to make more ships for all of us to enjoy.

 

Now to the little gripe i have. Once i have bought consumables like Signals i always find that for the first 10 or so games i feel that my Match Making is off. Like i'm either bottom tier or the team i'm playing with performs somewhat... not as well as one would expect, and of course i also make mistake - like not buying the Detonation Signal bundle... and then detonating within the first 3 mins of a game. Yes... i should pick my positioning better to avoid this :(

 

I just find it irritating that sometimes i'll spend cash and then the repayment for doing so rewards me with wasting signals due to the above.

 

Anyone else get frustrated if this happens? Even worse when your also supporting your best camouflage.

Ouch :(

 

I think i managed 2010 damage.

 

I'm starting to think that signals, flags and cammo is like dressing up to impress the ladies when your on a night out... and then you get no action. All that effort for nothing :(

Not frustrated at all, if anything happens, i'll blame myself for that.

But i'm frustrated about people that think they are kings just because they spent money and they should have better treatments than free players.

As i said in my opening statement... i do it to support the game. I don't ask for preferential treatment because i choose to spend money on it. And as for F2P players... i don't care that they don't want to invest in it. 

 

Detonation is an in game mechanic that happens at random. Hardly self blame.

You can blame yourself for not coming in prepared, whenever i detonated (which is rare for me even if i didn't mount the Juliet Charlie), i just laugh it off like nothing ever happened.

Also, whenever i use the exp boost flags and camo, i make sure i have Juliet Charlie on me everytime.

I noticed..... if you put in good vibes.... they usually manifest in each game that is to your favor.... if you have bad vibes... you get bad games... lol:P  as the Hippies during the 60s and 70s would say.... "Think positive dude"... Good Vibes = Good Games:)

Well... it works for me:P  so, pardon the rather theoretical "Spiritual" approach to good MM and RNG, also.... I only put on flags when im playing in a Division. :)

I wanna share mine as well :P

 

Each time I happily put on those social signal flags trying to farm more commander XP/Free XP, somehow my team would literally melted and lose. The situation stayed the same for the pass 2 weeks until yesterday.

 

(I purchased the special signal flags)

Ouch! 

Reminds me of the time I was tk'ed by allied torpedoes when I was trying to cap at the start of the game. Worse thing was the enemy was nowhere near the cap.

Game still had the cheek to say I did not prove myself in battle lol.

If you are just spending to support the game, you may be better off without relating this to any in-game returns like better MM and stuffs. MM shouldn't / doesn't know that you are paying, for whatever reason that may be.

Trying to grind without premium and/or signal flags is pretty frustrating imo. With premium I was getting up to 20,000 Comander XP per match now Im barley getting 1k xp -_- Having premium and flags reduce the grind by 20 times is prettttttttty insane.

And then they throw out things like the buyfast :P 

 

Another thing which irks me is the servicing cost for carriers, if they weren't already unpleasant to play now most of my profits are spent purchasing new Aircraft -_-

Game's great though, just has some really frustrating features. 

Edit: Oh Yah first battle and the first shot that hits me detonates my ship -_-. Wow what a 'fun' and 'engaging' mechanic.

Oh ffs I've been detonated for the past 3 matches in my gaede -_-, this can't just be bad luck

Well DDs do have a higher chance of getting detonated, so you might want to run those anti-detonation flags on them. Otherwise take Magazine mod 1.
