Add this, please:

Camping BBs that give up all map control which in turn results in fast games with few casualties which in turn leads to WG altering maps in order to artificially extend game lengths which in turn leads to lemmingtrains and/or even more passive gameplay.

 

I tried to be as brief as possible :cap_yes:.

Another good one is "Yoloing DDs who speed boost some 20km ahead of their team, get caught, die, and then whine about their team not supporting them" :Smile_trollface:

Needs a "none" option.

Precisely, how about a "none of the above, I can deal with stuff and adapt"?

Learning to adapt makes one a better player, I have found. Better person too if it's adapting to rl stuff, but that's a whole 'nother discussion..

I have learned to live by the motto "common sense is the less common of senses". Makes everything much more palatable after a bit.

At this rate we may have to rename it "uncommon sense" soon.

Oh, its already codename for that, common sense is only uttered when somebody already placed its foot deep in its own mouth.

Though I'd like to put 'None' I feel radar is just odd especially through terrain. I feel dirty when I use it...

Why? The other team can have radar ships too and I'm saying this as someone who only has a couple of ships with radar, I'm more likely to be playing a DD and getting pinged by them.

 

I feel dirty about playing ships like the Cesare with its ludicrous broadside or parking the Atlanta behind an island and commencing the spam. Doesn't stop me doing it but I'm sure it's comforting for the target to know that I sympathise.

Voted "none" as I think none of the listed items should be removed entirely.

Some tweaks or nerfs, maybe/yes, but not complete removal.

Why have you singled out Ocean? It's not the most hated map. Quite a few players like it. I think Okinawa and Mountain Range are less liked for example.

"None" is an option that always should be in polls like these, but adding the extra stuff there is making it a loaded option. Some stuff you can deal with just fine, but they're just making the game more boring, which is what the poll seems to be about.

Too many radars, AP bombs, CV MM, Cruiser Visibility, idiot DDs dying in the first minute, BBs refusing to go within 300 miles of a destroyer, people who get scared by an Atlanta, teams being stalled when they have a massive numerical advantage (the last one especially).

They can all be inconveniences depending on which ship is being driven, but at the end of the day - they do not ruin my day, unless I make a mistake :)

Removing totally seems pretty harsh, but from the choices if I absolutely needed to remove something then maybe standard game mode, I don't hate it but its just worse and slower version of good game mode (domination).

 

Lots of the items in the list could use some tweaking, but for example radar can be frustrating as a DD player, but you cant remove it.. if you remove it then multiple ships become obsolete.

I can deal with stuff and adapt, and yet would remove a few on that list.

 

For example carriers. Since closed beta I've felt they don't fit in this game. In a game of steering your ship and aiming your guns, a ship that can stay stationary behind an island out of harm's way and still be completely crucial for victory makes 0 sense. 

 

Current radar mechanics are terrible and should be gone as well.

 

Deep water torpedoes are fine in Pan Asian ships, but Asashio's are retarded. If your team is blessed by MM with an Asashio, 75% of the times you're playing with 1 less destroyer.

 

EDIT: forgot AP bombs. another "jewel" product of developers' mind.

Things that stop me enjoying the game, in order of importance.

 

1.  People incessantly complaining about the game.

 

2. My mediocre skills, which diminishes my success.

 

All the rest is just people with a sense of entitlement wanting the game to be changed to suit themselves.

 

This game is really good if you can get over yourselves.
