Sailing straight into cap in the first minute...

Why do non DD ships sail straight into a cap at the start of the game? Just had a guy with 55% win rate (which is good right?) sail into the cap in his Yamato with 2 DDs in it (they were radared) en 2 tier X BBs en 3 cruisers around it? He was gone in 2 minutes.....

 

Same with the 20k XP in DD, so many 4 DD games, In so many times 3 DDs are gone in 5 minutes...

DD are the ship class that takes the highest risk and who are focussed most (if the enemy knows what he is doing). Therefore it is no surprise many get sunk early.

The best advice I ever got in the battle chat was the very laconic, "Don't die." It really says it all.

 

Mind you, it's not always easy to abide by it. Stay in the back row in a DD, and you´re not likely to be of much use to the team. And you don't usually gain anything without taking risks in World of Warships (unless of course you're in a carrier :Smile-_tongue:).

 

Anyway, getting to a cap quick can give the team a head start. So it can be worth it. Live fast, die young, and leave behind a scorched, water-sodden corpse - that's the way of a dashing destroyer captain! :Smile_veryhappy:

Some people camp too hard, some rush too hard. Well, they're just like WG, can't be balanced comrade :cap_tea:

He maybe was drunk? People do stuff, not everybody needs a session on the couch with a psychoanalyst.

Nah he just had (per our gnome overlord Jingles) "A sudden, intense and ultimately catastrophic rush of sh*t to the brain".

Yeah... going into a cap straight at the start with a BB is something you've come to expect more of people of my skill level... (I do it sometimes.. because I mistakenly believe I can help our DDs.. and nobody else is doing anything to help them.) With a DD I mostly detest trying to go into a cap right at the start which makes people upset.. so sometimes I do go for an early cap so I can get to my next battle sooner. I have a very high success rate with that, much better than my capping percentage.

Just use addon to remove chat. Nothing productive comes out of that anyways. Too much egoists.

There was supposed to be a setting put in setting where you can turn of chat in there as in WoT's, sorely needed and long long long overdue.

I like his style. Jesrng has a lot to answer for.

 

Think, why did he do this, what reason did he have?

 

Did he think he could win?  No, probably not. So why charge in to certain death? Could it be his team mates had fled to the 4 corners of the map, was he watching a rubbish team fold their hand? Or any of the other reasons we have to put up with awful players doing stupid things that eventually make you want to suicide?

 

ummm.

To be added after that "feature" train command center or whatever is the name I didn't put much attention lately. :Smile_facepalm:

Maybe community needs just smooth UI  :Smile_coin:

Replay and to support -> let them deal with *Edit*. You can enjoy your gameplay as you wish. Play to enjoy my proposal. If you enjoy flanking with shima and you keep dying within 10 minutes in cap, then when you quit game you will feel sorry for not playing as you felt it should be played on relaxing and entertaining way for yourself. Just my personal tip! It's free as well. Hehe.

Cheers, man, though I don't need 10 minutes to die in a cap! :Smile_trollface: And, yes, you are correct that I am a flanker/scout DD player. The lone warrior type but I also like to keep enemy DD's spotted if I got better stealth. With good teams that means our cruisers and BB's will actually do something about them!

The thing is, they don't. The 'pink system'is deemed good enough by WG. 

I even had a fool in a DD torp my CV once. He even let loose a second salvo. 

Of course he croaked it from the 'return damage' and my CV repaired itself.. 

but no use reporting that because they do exactly NOTHING about it.

I do it lots of times in Conqkek and also in Hood. After all they are battlecruisers - works great when there are only 1 or 2 DDs. 

Usually I live, too. In Conqkeke you can do it if you are undetected. Sometimes I even have a nice cruiser meal (shoot AP).

In Hood you get away with it because of 'lemmingtrain'. Often I steal caps that way and I see no red ships around. 

Sailing into a cap that has 2 DDs in it with a Yamato, knowing it... well... no.

I do barge in though when I see it is our DD having a scrap with a red one and nobody else is helping. Load the HE, BOOM.

 

Zitat

Well yeah. That has been happening ever since I play the game. 

I guess if you have many/plenty DDs it is a way to grind.

Start game, suicide-run, make enough credits, have some gains,

start next game with other DD... repeat.... repeat...

Turning chat off, are you insane? How should I flame my team without chat? :cap_haloween:

Don't encourage players to disable chat. That will just make it easier for them to ignore people screaming at them not to yolo or do some other stupid crap when they say they 'don't care and are just having a bit of fun' if they want to do that without hastle then go to Co op.

But WG is going to implement this in few patches away in the future.

There is a difference between actually sitting in the circle, and being usefull around the cap. Entering the cap early is almost certain death, while spotting around the cap is useful. Sailing map edge spamming torps is not (unless you have ijn torp boat)
