Operation Killer Whale. 

Ahhh yes. People who get to the cap. then stop outside. and refuse to go in. till time runs out. All for a few more points of damage. Or people who're far away from the cap and have no chance of making it before time runs out, they just have to die and then we'll have enough ships in the circle. Instead they run away and stay alive... and lose us the game

What on earth is going on, how are some people so braindead? Tier 6 and they still don't know how this works? 

Literally just lost what would have been a 4 or 5 star completion because some d*****bag in an Izmail sat outside the cap and refused to move. 5 ships alive, 2 in, 2 out and far away, the Izmail close to the cap, slowed to a stop at full throttle and sat right on the edge, and then left it too late to start moving again. Literally for the last min we were telling them in chat to start moving and they just ignored us. It's a shame forum rules don't let us name and shame people like that because they thoroughly deserve to be.

When I die I want world of warship players to carry my casket so they can let me down one last time.

I mean its both.

Also a lot don't know ops at all.

I asked today since my team was staying idle and clueless after killing the ships in port why they behave like that ( I was polite and dis is a BIG rarity right there for me) and they replied (4 out of 5 alive) they didn't know what to do. After I explained we managed to win four stars by the skin of our teeth and after I broke a personal record in dmg in Ranger. It wasn't an easy win. It was good and exciting.

 

If you ask why it happens, two answers. Newbies and people that don't know well enough English to be able to translate instructions in the heat of battle. Some kind of tutorial is needed or idk I have raised subject before some very angry people appeared and shut me down quick so I just leave at that :) Cheers o7

That Izmail clearly knew what to do tho. And just let greed get the better of them. Just so unnecessary. They would have gotten more xp and creds if they had gone and won the battle instead of trying to get that 1 more hit in

They're just dumb, I'm afraid. Just had a game thrown by a Furious - of all carriers - at full health, 6k from the cap who didn't seem to understand that as the last ship alive, all he had to do was get in and we'd all double our money. He sat there, afraid to tank, we all wasted a game. What's the point?

I'm going stupid!

 

Was in Killer Whale last night and a guy argued that half of the team needed to escape, but failed miserably to understand it was half the team left alive.

 

He ranted at me going north and then really abused me for ramming one of the target BBs when there were 4 of us left with him and another sitting in the cap, in smoke! :fish_glass:

 

Not even a compliment when we got five stars! Sigh. Lol

i feel you. it's just so frustrating when you have 1 person choosing to waste 6 other people's time and effort. I was definitely very frustrated at the outcome of having thrown a very good result away.

Luckily so far I've had more good games than crap like this happen. But then crap like this shouldn't happen at all. Not knowing what to do, fine. Frustrating but I don't want to be too angry about it. But someone who clearly knew what to do and was just being selfish and greedy... that was just... inexcusable.

Shame really, this is the only T6 Op I play where a CV is more of a help than a hindrance. If the CV driver knows what to do. And isn't a brainded 45% WR looking for an easy carry to level up their T6 CV. And the rest think to shoot at the ships shooting the team before letting rip on the transports and buildings. And can read.

Trouble is all the dedicated Operations players (look in the Operations channel in Port) are too busy farming Narai* to improve the random pool in Op of the week. Add me as a contact, I'll div with you for KW.

 

Edit: *in the evenings.

i mean, to be fair, it's been 2 out of maybe 6 or 8 ops played so it's not as bad just that when stuff like this happens it sticks out more, the frustration tends to be remembered more. but yea it's definitely nice to have at least a few reliable teammates to reduce the chances of it happening further

Mainly it's just stupidity though :Smile_teethhappy:

Dunno how long you have been around, but i used to play Solo OPs quite often when they were new. And even enjoyed it! Now, i wouldnt even dare to try it, its too much frustration :Smile_sad: If i use my freetime to play a game, i wanna have fun doing it, not feel bad because of it.

It's "and"...

It's always "and" not "or".

And the answer is "yes"

Compare Killer Whale with a Standard random battle. In Standard battle many players don't understand  that they have to defend their base. It is a simple "capture the flag" principle but already too complicated for all the Einsteins. Killer Whale is much more complicated in comparison. "I have to get killed in order to win? What a befiddling concept"

There are still people using deepwater torpedoes on destroyers, despite there being an ingame written warning on the UI in battle that it's not possible.

WoWS players are basically illiterate trained chimps, minus the training.

 

 

Here is a fresh insight into the big thinks from the playerbase:

New Mexico staying out of range, because the enemy we're outnumbering might actually fire at him, rather than the 2 cruisers tanking for him.
