    Best Ship To Carry Teams With?

    No, it's not a question of attitude. It's a question of the skill of those I am teamed up with, and how to offset people who have the habit of either avoiding the enemy team, or killing one another over facing the enemy team. You can claim confirmation bias, you can claim frustration, but I gave you the basics of several situations in the opening post, and then another later on. What, are you next going to claim that i'm somehow seeing things wrong or misinterpreting one member torpedoing an allied ship at the start of the game? Or are you next going to say "Don't blame the team!" when a player spends the entire match shadowing my Cruiser and trying to ram it or push it into enemy gunfire? I have asked for advice and I am getting it thus far, and thank you to those who have answered. The only one I am actively arguing against is you, because you seem to have approached this with a mentality of "No, it's not their fault, YOU'RE the problem here!" Anyway, that aside, I appreciate those who did offer actual advice to this. Thank you, you have given me a few things to consider to be sure. I will definitely look into a few of the ships listed and consider attempting to join divisions more often from here on.

    I can recount the last eight times I attempted that with Battleships and Cruisers. Each time the team ignored me, used it as an opportunity to hide behind an island, or retreated. On one occasion there were three ships on our side left, and two on theirs. I had a Cruiser with a sliver of health left and spent six solid minutes dodging fire and drawing out the enemy ships. My team? They were happy to do nothing, just move in a circle about our cap area. They did not shoot at the other ships, they did not try to cap, just circled one another until I was dead, and then decided they might try to take on the other team themselves. It's not a question of attitude, nor even a question of swallowing one's pride. It's a question of dealing with morons game after game who are lucky to get three kills between them, will all but openly sabotage any chance of victory, and will typically spend more time screaming at one another in chat than shooting at the other ships, against teams who can typically wipe the floor with them. I would be happy to provide a few screenshots if needed, but suffice to say, it is by no means even. This is why I decided to give up and ask if there was some blindingly obvious option to actually start winning the odd game short of attempting to switch sides mid-match.

    I've been trying exactly that, and it doesn't work, unfortunately. Usually, i'll down perhaps twenty to twenty-five enemy aircraft and spend a sizable chunk of the match using fighters to scout out targets or trail Destroyers. The team usually ignores this, kills one another, or spends the entire match running/hiding from the enemy team. Well, unless they spot the enemy Carrier, at which point they will abandon any desired to cap or fight the enemy team in favour of chasing it down, even if its entire complement of bombers has been wiped out. Still, thank you for the suggestion anyway.

    Apologies for the title, but that really was the most polite way to phrase this. I'm not a good player by any stretch of the definition, usually average at best. The problem is, I keep being teamed up with those who seem to either be hell-bent on losing or simply cannot play. To give you some idea of what I mean, here's the last four matches I played - In one a Destroyer torpedoed our own Carrier at the start of the match and then sank himself, in another, the entire team refused to move out of the starting point and opted to circle it instead; in the third all bar one Cruiser and two Destroyers ignored the team pushing south in favour of chasing one enemy Destroyer heading north, and in the latest one a Cruiser repeatedly rammed his own team-members into islands and enemy firing ranges, while another turned side-on to a Destroyer and stopped dead in front of a full torpedo spread. Is there any particular nation, ship or even type which might offset this at all?

    How Long Does It Take To Reach The Carolina?

    Well, yes, but that's part of the problem. Apologies but with the cruisers I can be hitting an enemy vessel with over a dozen shots, set them on fire or even take out their engines, but it will barely dent their armour, while one volley from theirs will take out a third of my health or cause me to immediately explode. Combined with the longer range, and the aforementioned problem of hitting anything with torpedoes - assuming the cruiser actually has them - the battleship just looks like much more viable option.

    How Long Does It Take To Reach The Carolina?

    Well, if that is the case then, no offense, I am most definitely not using cruisers from here on. Sorry, no offense but I tend to be stuck in slugging matches no matter what I do due to the team refusing to take points, advance forwards or simply because I cannot get out of range in time. To each their own of course, if you can make it work then fair enough, but it honestly doesn't seem like something I will be any good at in the long run. Still, thank you for the suggestion, I might take a look into the Japanese ships once I have a couple of battleships and see how they handle.

    How Long Does It Take To Reach The Carolina?

    Perhaps, but given the sheer volume of times they keep killing me in a single volley from outside my range, the fact I have tried the British line of cruisers up to tier IV with little to no enjoyment, and the fact I cannot aim torpedoes for the life of me while actually hitting with cannons, they seem to be a much more entertaining option. Plus, no offense, the Chester has such a high profile on the water and such poor firepower that I would take any ship over it at the moment. Still, thank you for the suggestion nevertheless.

    I will take that into account then, thank you.

    Fair enough, apologies for that. Assuming that I am losing every game I am in - perhaps earning about three to four hundred exp per game - failing to kill even a single ship, lack a premium account, and typically being one-shotted by battleships; is this the sort of thing which will take months to grind out? Apologies, I only ask as cruisers and destroyers are proving to be no fun at all so far.
  10. Sorry to bother people on here, but I just want to ask how long it generally takes in terms of games or hours to reach the first tier III battleship on the American tech tree.
