3k base xp

I have often in the past encouraged being a bit nicer to each other in game, and realised this evening that I have at least one informal rule that makes me message someone after match to say gg wp +1

 

People who manage 3k+ base xp deserve a pat on the back.

I try to compliment the top 3 players in every good game I have. I'm not a big fan of post battle messages, I myself find them annoying even if someone thanks me for the game.

And just recently I started to refrain from making biting remarks when I see bad plays on my team. They lead to nowhere, as bad players rarely want to improve.

I will remember to not message you after match Aragathor if we ever in that situation ;) In general I only do it if someone has played really well (see the 3k xp thing) or if we coordinated well in match. Either way I appreciate it might be uncomfortable to get pms from random ppl so I always tend to go with something like "gg wp, good luck next match".

I remember beeing messaged once by you after a match (on different teams) and after that we played few Divi matches. Was a funny thing. 

 

So keep doing that.

I usually compliment people that:

  • gets 2k xp games 
  • people who are doing the job to win the game (fighting for caps, smoking your cruisers at the right moment, screening for torps, trying to spot, etc.).

I unfortunately rarely spend all my compliments except on week-ends.

I usually report people who :

  • Bad mouth in chat (sorta "gg easy" when winning)
  • People that really don't care about winning (DDs that ignore the cap and go sniping, BBs that are really too passive, cruisers that put themselves completely out of position). I never complain about kitting cruisers even if they are borderhugging because that's their job.

I usually don't report:

  • DDs that plays the cap badly and end up dying quickly even if that's bad 
  • BBs that go suicide inside caps 
  • CAs that get devastated because stupid broadsides

That's already painful enough and at least they tried.

 

I sent a ticket once and only once about someone wishing me death.

BB that suicides inside the cap is most of the time a sign of desperation since everything else failed and your team is either dead or ultra useless.

Later game of course. Not talking about those that rush straight away and die.

I give out lots of complements to people who do well in game , being polite is good (sometimes very hard to be polite) I do loose it occasionally

 

One thing I have noticed a simple please goes a long way "don't rush please take your time = win :)" is one on my leading messages at the start seams to work quite well sometimes :Smile_smile:

Indeed, and people who type "plan?" At the start of the game should get an instant report. They tend to rush in and die before blaming their teammates for their miserable performance. Just saying "Plan?" Is so lazy.

- I compliment everybody (even enemies) who tells me "good work" or something good about what I do.

- Also I compliment those who makes me laught (a joke or something)

 

- Also I report everybody who EVER uses defensive AA on me (THATS CHEATING!!)

- Report those who I talk to, asking something or whatever, and doesn't answers.

- And specially those who takes more than 1 min to start to move in the game (AFK), also AFK enemy carriers.

I give some occasional compliments, mainly to DDs that provide timely smokes and other supporting players (in a recent battle with radar Minotaur our CV made good use of me lightening the contesting DDs and later helped me in getting rid of a Hindenburg and a Missouri during the cyclone). I also tend to communicate to those players that they've been complimented in chat. Reports, OTOH, are a lot sparser and for very strong reasons.

 

Salute.

I never compliment CVs - it's seal clubbing every time.  I will compliment other people who have Donald in their username however.

Did that once out of sheer frustration of having to sail the Iowa. Told the team in chat I was doing that at the very start of the match and advised the carrier to send his strike planes on my path as they would be safe. Ended up killing a surprised Missouri in one salvo, CV basically one shoted the enemy CV (my salvo only had to do 3k to kill it), ended the game with almost 5 kills, a personal damage record and a win, when all I wanted was to see the Iowa sink. That is the Iowa in a nutshell. I absolutely hate that ship with every fiber of my body. When I am cautious and meticulous I get shafted by RNGesus, and when I YOLO and just shoot off the hip I get monster games. Go figure...

 

On topic, compliments are very scarce due to the salt concentrations on the sea. Hell, I even had a solo warrior win against 6 ships (not camping and farming damage, if you ask. I actually capped our only  cap at the time and killed 2 ships when 1v6, all in a BB) and didn't have a single compliment go my way. I personally compliment those that make significant contributions to a win or the objective, although I too don't normally use my daily allowance fully, I must admit.

Random +1s are nice (I am at +274 karma atm I think, tho sort of loses any of its questionable worth at that point) but was more encouraging actual human interaction. Many nice people who I will never speak to again, but it doesn't hurt to message people with a gg after and maybe even an actual sentence if they deserve it. As I say, routinely I would only do this for ppl over 3k, but often for a little less ;)

 

For those who object, then apologies but it is surely preferable to the inevitable "you suck noob" messages after match that seem to be the favourite pastime of really bad players.

 

Pro tip tho if you choose to try this - say "gl next match" somewhere in your message. This means they know u don't want to division or be their best friend or even chat unless they want to.

 

Good luck out there.

The real Donald is essentially a quite lifelike muppet. Does that mean I am pulling your strings?

Any game with those XP numbers are always like this:

You were complimented 1x

You were reported 9x

 

Drop of water on the Suns crust >.<

DDs today must ignore cap in high tier batle because there is normally 3-5 radar cruisers.If you go to cap in early game you die in 3 minutes. You are more useful to your teem when survive and deal damge to enemy.

Sorry to disagree, Sir. I play all sort of DDs in T 7 to 10 and whatever the DD I have, you will always see me be around the cap, radar or not CV or not. The key is to be able to:

  • Flee very quickly if needed (so as soon as you're in radar/plane detection range be sure that your nose is toward your team)
  • Stay at the limit of detection range (so sometimes don't even enter the cap right away, just stay behind is already useful)
  • Don't get torp so never stay broadside to the enemy especially in smoke

Sure in consequence my damage/PR is less than in cruisers in comparison to other players but my win rate is the best of my ships !

 

The only time I'm not around a cap is when I have no support then I head for another cap usually and only if I'm really too far away of them I start torp hunting.
