Let's see.....A game that you can play three games in tier 1/2,think it is fun and then go and buy tier 8 Tirpitz or Alabama or cruiser Atago or Prinz Eugen......
And people wonder about incompetence.The playerbase in this game ruins this game.
A game that if you play Battleship, you can do everything correct, lead the target perfectly and fire your guns and all shells miss the broadside cruiser, or you get only overpens.Read Mutsu.
Everything is based on RNG all the time, and I get tired of it.
A tier 2 player suddenly starting to play tier 8 will be BAD.And will most likely after sounding the horn on the ship just sail into the closest torp spread.
Because he/she has no idea about torp ranges to most destroyers/cruisers or that insane fire chance most cruisers have.
This game is really sad and do not reward good players.At least not enough.
We all know the satisfaction of devestating a cruiser,but these days that happens rarely, since most hits seems to be overpens.
And the TOXIC community do not help either.Instead of helping a new player people call him idiot or noob.
When RNG is against you,as it mostly is, at least for me, it is hopeless.
It is more fun to peal an orange.And I have no nails to speak of.
Germany had superior technology and aiming systems compared to the allies, still German BB's get dispersion punished out of this world.Compare Panther and Sherman,compare Bismarch and Hood.Look at plane development, rocket science etc....
British get alien HE shells on BB's and only AP shells on light cruisers.Go figure.British cruisers work ok, but HE BB have caused many players use HE on all battleships.
Since other BB captains use HE, people that have no idea also use HE.And when you play and see Gneisenau use HE, I understand it is hopeless.
And so comes Asashio.Insanely situational and destroy the game even more, despite the fact people warned WG about this.DD captains will try to flank around and not contribute to the team at all.
DD's must focus on caps, and support team with smoke.
I have no idea what country have the staff that decides all this, but Russians communicate updates and so forward.
I had a game in Fushun recently, and had to face up against two BB's.
I shot the first with my two front guns and got a fire, I shot the other with my back two guns and got a fire.
Then no more fires for me.RNG was with me for first four shots, then deserted me all together.
Also had a game in Texas, and suddenly a Minekaze shot at me with all four guns.
Three shells missed, one hit and barbecue.One 127mm shell started a fire.Accumulation of shells should start fires, not a SINGLE shell.
When RNG mostly is like this, it causes me to search for other games.
I have also seen that German, French and Italian and Russian 37mm aa guns do wildely different damage.
Duca D'Aosta 4*2 37mm do 46 damage per second average, Dunk 5*2 37mm do only 19 average per second.
Yes Balance I know, but still hopeless, do they think I have no eyes?
And fire sinking a ship?cm'on the hull must be breached for a ship to sink.Even I, I have no idea about shipbuilding, understand this.
A fire can destroy AA guns and kill crew.Only if a fre detonate main gun ammunition a ship can sink.I talk about warships, not transports.
The armor would then crack and be much easier to penetrate, but the fire cannot sink a ship.
With all these issues, I have decided to abandon WG for now.
And I know many people will call this a whining thread, it is not meant like whining,I'm trying to sum up the game.
Yes I'm a noob, an idiot, and also a moron.
Now you betterwissers can stay away.
