Cursed Ranked Games?

( currently bronze 4 and im completely stuck )

I dont know how to say it ...
but when i pick my fav T7 ship(nagato), i nearly always get the worst of the worst teams. LITERALLY. its common to have 1 - 2 afk, 1 - 2 "press w to suicide into enemys" and then its already a 7 vs 3.

Yeah, could be "bad luck" but im now at 4 wins in 21 Games and in those 4 won games i had 120-130k damage and 3-4 kills, so basically killed half of the enemys on my own.
Most of the games im best in my team and dont lose a rank/star but ... wtf?

 

and im NOT a sniper bb player ( nagato spread is too bad for this anyways ), i usually try to stay well angled to tank damage for my team.

 

statistically speaking, if i would be on my skill level there, i should have 50% winrate. but beeing usually the best in my team with avg ~70k damage, my winrate is nearly non existant,

 

anyone else experiencing the same? 

 

seeing afk/suicide teammates all the day along while losing nearly every match, except i kill 3+ ppl is totally frustrating ...

Sounds like the usual weekend madness to me. Things allways drop skill and mentality wise as there can be  a lot more cooks, so to speak, of varying abilities.

Advice. don't flog a dead horse when its like this, take a break come back later. you will always play worse when frustrated and pissed off and its not like all your effort is being rewarded is it.

Aye; it's the weekend though, which brings out the 'occasional' players, most of whom don't have the time to get good. I've spent far too much time on this game over the years, and my overall WR is only a measly 48% (plus change) - imagine how dreadful a lot of folk will be who only get to put in a couple of hours a week.

 

If you actually want to progress in Ranked, generally avoid playing at the weekend...

yeah, im already doing this.
lost 3 games in a row at friday
lost 3 games in a row yesterday
lost 3 games in a row today

 

if im frustrated, i stop playing because thats true, performance is just shitty then.

 

usually, a really bad pool of players should HELP because enemys have 7x the chance and you have just 6x the chance to get afk/suiciders.
 

its just .... cursed :cap_wander:

statistically speaking, over a long run the main factor is the player ... when i see those crazy unicum players with 65% WR+ thats crazy

on my 2 most played ships i do have ~ 55% WR in 1000+games combined ( and i bet even more when i subtract 100 learning games ) and 100k+ dmg in avg
 

my beloved missouri has 57% WR in 120 games ...

but ranked stats are just madness

Play another class ship if you get stuck.

 

That is a serious remark. It works.

 

If you later get stuck again, change again.

 

It does not mean  you  cannot  play your  favorite  ship  type anymore . It is meant  to get unstuck.

Just had a streak of 6-7  ranked games - steamroll from the start ( 2-3  players from our team dead in the first 3 minutes ) . 

 

Does not matter what ship you take - afk, zombies, tomatoes, potatoes & and all kind of vegetables in the team 

 

Anyhow need to cool the beer and put the steaks on the grill for the football game  :cat_cool:            Italy  joYpsiaYi4GDCqhSRAq5Zg_96x96.png  vs 1JjnDm6Es30LryHzbudyEw_96x96.png Wales

Relatable. That is why I stop playing it when I've collected all available steel during a sprint. 

There are far more fun games to grind than ranked in wg.

It is so rare to land on a decent team in Ranked that literally the only reason I do so is to swipe a few quick rewards and duck out of it again.

 

Nothing is ever done to address poor play. Players are not grouped according to their skill. Potatoes should fight Potatoes. It's as simple as that.

 

It's not worth the time or effort to get to Gold. And for what? A bit of kudos? I can get that in real life, doing real things. 

 

The below picture was taken during an actual Ranked match I fought in recently. 

 

Food Fight: Potato vs Potato - YouTube

 

EDIT: I literally just logged out of a Ranked match mid-game because I am so sick of poor play. I will take whatever punishment is doled out on the nose. Unless WG does something to address this toxic game environment, players will begin leaving in droves.

 

If it's not happening already, that is.

yes just stop playing for the day and try again the next

 

also try other ships. if 1 ship does not work try a better one.

 

Chain playing a ship that is clearly not working will not work in  your favour.

If you get stuck:

- stop for a bit 

- play a different ship or ship class 

Some ships work in randoms but not in ranked. Also it seems some ships work in different phases of ranked. 

But most importantly stop when you get frustrated.

Yeah, I know the feeling, the game has gone from battles with Warships to Firefighting streaming in from 23k and hidden in smoke, or with 13k radar on, no tactics required just camp at the back to survive.  It a bit of a muppet game now!    What we need is a real-world of warships and this can be called Russian Fantasy Warships considering they never had a warship for 100 years.

While I sympathize with the spirit of your post, the details are so thoroughly wrong it’s hard not to focus on that.

Do you manage to enjoy it more now? Does the game feel worse than before your hiatus? 

I had a 1 year break and was much better able to isolate myself from WGs shenanigans.

i pick my fav T7 ship(nagato),

i would say that BBs can only react

and to win games you need ships that take the initiative

and these are DDs and to some extent CL/CAs.

 

Spotting the reds, pushing smoked up DDs, create cap pressure are tasks that you want to do yourself.

 

The ship with the big guns can be played by a potato, (almost) no problemo

But when the scout starts to smoke itself or yolo braindead into the reds, than the win is in danger.

 

Dont react on the play of your scouts, be the scout (or scout support) yourself,

becasue doubleclicking every 30s can everybody, scouting/leading for/the team wins the match

If you're a good BB brawler player and get within 11km of enemy DDs you can make a difference though as the chances of those enemy DDs dieing first increases. Very important to control the torp lanes on you though so you can predict where they'll be. Sides with BBs that stay 2-3 grids away from cap zones lose due to losing their DDs first. Their front troops will have too much pressure on them. I've had solid winstreaks with my Izumo in silver and Cara in bronze, because I'm pushing hard and turning to bait in time, deterring cruisers and BBs from getting close enough to support their DDs well and breaking off a lot of enemy zone capture attempts.

 

Cara is very good with pure SAP in brawling, always deal significant damage to any ship you encounter (except DDs frankly), frontally or sideways if you always just aim at deck height or higher and is a very good choice to use against all the German and Russian BBs you encounter in bronze.

 

Izumo is good with the nose in for bouncing, but also at an angled retreat (allow say a Pommern to get within 7km while it's giving chase trying to get to torp range, your rear mounted secondaries will put it on fire, it'll bounce most shots and you can aim for deck/super structure height for 5-12K per hit).

 

Also enjoy taking up positions in mid where most players don't expect enemy BBs and rely on DDs to counter. Those DDs tend to be in the cap zones though, so you're relatively safe there. Just need to avoid crossfire threat and create your own. Get a lot of citadels on Russian BBs especially as they tend to keep their nose to the ships directly on the other side of the cap zone.

Its not your fault man, its Match maker who is rigging the games !!!!11!!!  the artificial inteligence program monitors your stats so you lose in critical moments because you get trash teams. they dont want people to rank out so fast but keep them playing longer time in that gamemode so its ^popular^ and somebody has to carry bad players in ranked so they dont quit the game. 

we had makarov  scandal and hidden AI "bugs" for years ,youre not alone many many good players notice this and agree.... MM watches your winrate all the time and wg algorhytm all the way from wot is working hard , and is there to mess you up. !

its rigggedddddd - fact!
