Wow, just wow. Ever since last patch Players have become complete potatos. I mean I consider myself to be pretty bad at wows, but WTF is going on?

 

I just played a game as Fubuki. havent done much greatness in it yet, bad captain, bad stats.

It's this Tier+2 matchmaking where everyone and their grandma has Radar, Cruisers spam the crap out of you and stuff insta-gibs you.

 

So I go up to the middle cap (B), cause that's where I spawned. I get radar'd instantly, so I fall back and spot while torping the place.

Sadly none of the torps hit, but I have good vision of the place. We lose cap ofc, cause I can't contest it.

After a few minutes of skirmishing around this Tirpitz starts to ping me, cap B and starts to flame me that I should spot.

I look in the upper right corner and see 53k spotting damage… thats like 8 times what I get on average, cause normally nobody shoots what I spot.

I tell him "dude… I cant contest cap cause radars and all I do IS spotting.

 

so the battle at cap B clears up and I look at the lower Right Corner - aka map. I see that nobody in my Team even tried to take any other caps, and neither did the enemy Team.

B is cleared out, and the path to C is clear. So i venture forth, to spot more enemies and take the caps for my Team.

 

after i took B and was halfway through capturing C this tirpitz Flames me again. something About a useless fubuki that cant spot.

I tell him that i have 53k spotting Damage and captured the only two flags we have ALONE.

and you know what he tells me? YOU SHOULDNT PLAY FOR SCORE, BUT FOR THE TEAM XDDDDDDD

i mean what can you even do more for the Team? as t6 in t8 match being radar'd out and hitting Nothing cause my torping skills suck?

 

so i head back to A cause the enemy approaches from the direction of A, and while im sailing into the enemy fire suddenly two more People start to flame me for not spotting, terrible Teamplay, bein useless and being a whiny [edited] because i defended myself.

OFC None of them had any Argument, but i still got Pretty fIN enraged by the sheer amount of stupid...

 

so what is your experience since patch?

As much as I share your frustration somehwat, this is naming and shaming and will sadly result in a edited topic.

 

On the other question, no I have not really noticed anything extraordinary stupid beyond the normal routine. BB's camp with the HP perk, cruisers show full broadside, DD's charge in without checking for radars and whatnot and CV's refuse to move. Buisness as usual.

Maybe it's because I am a PVE main, but I just don't see how this patch is any different than the last one.

 

The quality of play in that has definetly dipped since WG started using that mode as a punishment for the rules offenders, though..

Generally speaking the players that start going off on one in chat are usually absolute dross.

Everything is hunky dory for me, nothing changed with the patch... potatoes everywhere, but as I don't read the chat until I got salty myself I ain't bothered by nothing...

 

So... maybe just stop reading the chat? Helps a lot, I think...

You lost because your team had 0 Belfasts. Theirs had 1. Simple as that.

 

If their Belfast had been on your team you'd have won.

It goes up and down. Today I finally had a good day, but best of all was using my Grozovoi in a CV match and finally using the ship to kill planes.

Other than that, half the losses were mostly defeats snatched from victory because of constant pushing even when in the lead ( cfr Flamu's Yamato commentary )?

If at least DD on this picture would have comparable skill, your cruisers could do something. But also I suspect, that those enemy "purples" were in divisions, and that makes things impossibru to balance for the current MM engine.

 

And, by "symmetric" MM I understand that both teams get:

* DD of similar properties (here is deepwater Pan-Asian + ninja IJN vs hydro gunboat and US gunboat, so zero symmetry)

* equal number of gimmicks (here 2 radars + 4 hydro vs 2 radars + 2-3 hydro, so not too bad)

* if CV present, similar AA strength

I m also getting 20-25% wr for the past 3 days.
I may not be the best captain but that is ridiculus.
no1 is capping, no1 is supporting.
Ppl lemming towards uncontested caps and stay there untill they die.
Things are way worse than the usual crap.
Every1 circles around the map behind islands doing NOTHING.
WG needs to bring their crap together.Fast.

It's been going on for a while now. I've suffered a 53% winrate over the last 200(!!!) games. The amount of loss streaks I've gotten has been staggering, truly an achievement.

 

Yeah, I need a hug.

 

The games that are won are either an incredible struggle and hard carry, or a rollover in which you don't have time to do much. Especially at higher tiers, which can be explained by the fact that power increases more than twofold. Put skilled players and potatoes in an arena with more powerful weapons and the potatoes are going to be destroyed that much sooner. Simple really. It's gotten to the point that I believe carrying solo is no longer viable at high tier.

Hhehehe, yeah @walter3kurtz... I get that a lot too... Had the most abyssmal Sunday last weekend with a 16% winrate all morning though I did on average some 68-70k damage per game (played tier 7-8 Cruisers at the time). Finally lost my patience and took a 4 hour break from the suffering and to calm down my nerves. Then had only complete roll-over wins the rest of the day in which I had scarcely any time to do anything before we had already won. Each game lasted about 8-10 mins at most. :Smile_facepalm: Then I just gave up and moved on to play Total War instead.:cap_viking:

 

In summation an unbelievably frustrating and nerve-wrecking day for me, but oh well, that's the way the cookie crumbles I guess. Will try again this weekend and see what happens. Gots my incense, holy water, lots of garlic and a collection of dubious talismans and voodoo dolls prepped for the occasion. Also considering to have my PC exorcised... :cap_like:

 

That said, I'm still kinda nervous abbouttiiit. :Smile_hiding:

Yeah and that's fine of course, but it literally dragged on for weeks for me. I've never had more than the occasional bad day or two in between "normal" days. It's been the exact opposite since about the launch of season 9 (5 weeks ago?). I didn't feel like going for rank 1 this season and played randoms instead. I blame this for what happened. All the capable players are grinding ranked so you end up with the gutter trash.
