It's not even 8 AM yet and I've already had half a dozen blow out matches thanks to AFK's, Lemons, charging CV's and Battleships that run for J10 or A1. Every. Single. Match. The level of idiocy is astounding. I swear it didn't used to be like this. What happened?

What did you expect with players that are half awake or eating breakfast while watching morning TV?

You put your nostalgia glasses on before 8 AM. Honestly, This thread deserves the replies it gets, and for once, I agree with all of them.

The game gets the players it deserves. My guess, players are here for the resources, not for actual gameplay.

Thinking there would be actual competitive play at 8AM on the EU server is straight up lunacy. Everyone just woke up, give it a few hours and try again.

There was a time, an almost mythical one, back in the good ol' days when players were much better because they all had a love for ships and they really, really wanted to learn the mechanics of a great game and now we have a dumbed down mess for kids on holidays or drunken adults on furlough.

 

Or summat.

Not really, back in closed beta we were all equally crap. As time goes the skillgap widenes between good and bad players, especially now when you can grind to T9-T10 in one day or just buy yourself in, instead grinding 50 games to get the Izumo B hull...

Thats the "new" player base WG wants to have in this game, since they are (more) "milk-able" than all the veterans, that already left the game.

It was really a tongue in cheek comment, I'm past trying to argue every day and twice on Sundays that the playerbase was never really that good.

Edit. Seems I'm not past trying.

 

The new players of today will be the veterans in two years time, just as I'm a veteran now and I sucked back when I started playing this game. Eventually, I'll also leave this game. So will they. Nothing lasts forever. Nothing to see here.

 

(Oh no!, I've done it again and I swore never to argue about this again)

Bad gameplay and overall terrible teams excuses:

 

8AM-10AM: everyone just woke up, try later.

10AM-16PM: lots of newbies at home playing because of COVID lockdowns.

16PM-23PM: Kids came back from school, dads came back from work, ofc teams suck.

23PM-8AM: Late night ships?!! You crazy?!!!!1!!1!!?

Even better for the game then. New players are usually the ones having less premiums and highest potential to spend more money.

There was a Starship static fire last night and a Falcon9 launch at 02:00 utc this morning. Falcon9 was on launch & landing number 7.

That is why everyone was still in bed.....
