Is it me or do the under 10 min games happen more and more?

 

Annihilate or get annihilated.

 

Today first game 8 min, second lasted 7min31....

 

WTF is going on with this game? Is this so no one makes any credits anymore and they have to buy credits/Doubloons???

No foul reason behind this, it's the result of creating a crap game. :cap_happy:

A general suspicion was that with the corona lock-down many people sat at home being bored to death. So many turned to playing computer games, amongst others WoWs. That created an inflow of lots of less-skilled players on top of what we already had. Bad players ignore the objectives. Battles are over in 5-10 min mostly because one team runs out of points, which happens, when one team does not own a single cap or only one cap combined with a fast loss of ships. Also the epicenter mode suffers from people treating the center like a prohibited area. i had battles where I was the only ship within all three rings and all begging and finally cursing did not make my team move into the center. I had battles where I threatened my team to abandon the epicenter and go to square A1, if they didn't move into the center. It did not get them to contest the center but only got me reported tho I didn't abandon the center.

 

So yeah, this is the game right now. Can't help it. The problem is that obviously most players are selfish. They think that most of all damage is what helps them progress through their grinds. So they focus on doing damage rather than playing the objectives. Ironically that idea is wrong, since the winning team gets a 50% bonus and winning is the most important thing to do, if one wants to progress as fast as possible. People fail to understand that.

Under 10?

You're a lucky fellow, I'll give you that.

 

This was 5 mins.

Though I'll admit, I was partially to blame for that. :Smile_trollface:

The level of gameplay is atrocious.

WG does not seem to care one iota.

I don't get it cause at some point crap game experience has to translate into crap earnings for WG.

I have been seeing the same as I'm grinding the venezia. Spawn, push your side, win, and then notice more than half your team is already dead and there is nothing you can do.  Don't get me wrong, it was almost the same 2 years ago, before I took a break but not to this extend, its game after game.

I had 3 or 4 such games tonight. We didnt lose a single ship, killed half their team and won by them reaching zero points. 

Its getting very frustrating as its very difficult to actualy have good battles. The enemy team dies so fast you just cant catch up you basically go full speed the entire game.

Yes, there could be that reason &, ofc, the prime demographic that WG panders to (the console playing knuckle - draggers) doesn't even have a 10 minute attention span. :Smile_playing:

10 minutes? That's for beginners ... NA CC, as well as streamer and youtuber Mejash probably holds the record for the fastest tier 10 game, at least i have never seen or read about a faster tier 10 game

I know it doesn't beat 24k posts yet but indeed, some activities can be pointless yet addictive. :cap_like:

I just realised the WG probably considers short under 10 minute games as design success....

The amount of matches that I get where I bust my balls to hold my own and when I finally do, I check the other flank and I see 5 enemy ships coming from that flank and half my team dead is waaay too many.

The other scenario is to have 5-6 ships behind you thinking that they will help, but they actually aren't. Then you die. Then you lose the match because potato players are gonna potato. At least if you die early, you can go in another match. The first scenario is disheartening because you are stuck in a losing battle for at least 5+ more minutes...
