Protected Random Battle MM

How long do I have to suffer through this mm where I'm fighting maybe 1 really player on the enemy team and then bots that make the co-op bots look like unicums. I'm not play co-op battles, it's this weird bs hybrid of co-op and random and it sucks.

It doesn't suck if you were a new player, it is there to help you learn and to keep the seal clubbers away.....You may be an experienced player but you still have to go through it.

This doesn't help new players at all. It just makes it easier for me to isolate them and kill them since they're probably more of a threat than the bots. Like I'm sure this brand new player in protected battles had fun when he detonated and won't even receive flags for it bc he hasn't unlocked them yet.

Ok, so you killed a new player....the major flaw with the system is letting in experienced players also starting over.

 

If I could transfer all my NA ships and stats over I would. Otherwise I gotta play in this protected mm with no way to get out of it.

He still gets the flags, he just won't see them until then.

And you have this kind of protected matchmaking until you reach a higher account level. Iirc it's level 10.

To grind out 19 t10s takes quite a while.

It might but that wasn't your question.

 

All I want to know is how to escape these battles with protected mm. You kinda went off topic. These protected mm battles give very little xp, and are a coin toss on who wins bc the bots yolo so hard, quickly leading to nearly all of one teams ships dying in literally 5 minutes.

Play 1 game in tier 5 (or higher) or reach account level 11, those 2 remove the newbie protection

 

Just don't come back whining how you got clubbed by professional clubbers with their 19 point captains in low tier ships

By playing the game. It's really not as punishing as you make it out to be. Get rewards, couple krakens to stock up on those +50% signal xp boosters. Or pay real money for some premium and premiums.

It's really not a big deal if you ask me.

Really? I remember not retroactively earning captain XP when playing again after release. Does this apply to certain things and not others, or was a bug fixed?

Welcome to EU where that is going to happen in most of your games with real players in them ;)

Pretty sure the detonation mechanic has nothing at all to do with protected match making, skill, tier, or much of anything. It's just a silly RNG roll if someone is lucky and hits the magazine. If anything, that guy at least didn't have the repair bill of a T9 or T10 that just loldetonated from a quite healthy state because some AP shell/torpedo hit the magazine.

Spoiler

As a new player in the game you are protected until you play a tier 5 ship or until you reach level 12. After that you will play against both experienced veterans and new players like you.

I think there is a way, I have seen it around but I do not remember where.

I thought you need to change the server somewhere manually.

When I started I got around this limitation buy divisioning up with players that could go to random battles(one of them was the leader). I'm quite sure I didn't make it all the way to T5 in my first play session, but I never had to do the Co-Op grind. I didn't get any extra acc lvl's or such, but the low tier grinds were pretty quick.

 

Not sure if it still works, but might be worthwhile to test it out.

get a look at this.... here's how to change the server. 

You do not have to unlock everything again.

I think OP is talking about account transfer, to witch this won't help. Support can do it, but those are the exceptions as they generally tell ppl to create a new acc for a new region. Some have had their accs moved when they themselves have moved across the globe IRL

Looks to me that he just wants to play on the EU server, with the same account.

If you change the server and use the same account, this will not work?

No.

You definatly can't use an account that was created on EU on any other server and vice versa, you have to create a new one.

This Mod you linked is for people with two seperate accounts on different servers. You don't have to install two launchers like this and can just switch regions in the loginscreen which isn't possible vanilla.
