Dear Bismarck and Tirpitz players.

We can all agree that those ships are good brawlers and yes they look good when doing so. 

 

Now, I have a question for you: (This only goes for the speshul Bismarck and Tirpitz players out there) Do you ever look at the minimap? Do you ever look at the points or timer? 

Do you not read chat? 

It seems like its a plague going on where you give your team a big advantage and for some reason those players decide to YOLO into the enemy fleet and die, thus giving the enemy team the advantage. Sometimes even throwing games when all they had to do was not to push

I know other players do this for no reason, but in my experience most of them are Bismarck/Tirpitz players. 

 

I'm just wondering about the thought process behind that kind of play. Is there any? Or do they just want to make the boom-sticks go boomboom? 

Why not just play Random battles if that is what you want? 

 

Cheers :Smile_honoring:

I think you know the answer to that one.

Which clearly means that the minimap gives skilled players too much of an advantage over average potatoes. To close the skill gap it should be removed. :Smile_trollface:

But why would a Tirpitz driver look at the minimap? Didn't he just pay €60 so he could be lazy and let the AI secondaries do all the work?

eh, if only those were just Tirpitz players...
But, today I witnessed something I couldn't believe myself...
2 Tirpitzes rushing each other, brawling it out, doing a driveby next to eachother, and both of them survived with more then half hp left...
They either didn't know they have torps, or they managed to miss all of them from 2km away...
AMAZING!

That would imply that he is aware that secondary batteries exist..

No, those ones are the better ones, believe me. At least right or wrong, they at least are trying.

campers or border lovers are worst. They leave all the tanking and brawling to the cruisers.

 

fun fact.

yesterday in co-op's MM, all BB but one or two, I was with my uber cruiser (gneise). In the Battle a guy got sunk and started to give hell to the rest of us. calling us noobs, retarded, etc, and proceeding that with OMG.

The guy  was about to have a heart attack and went after a Nagato because he was not brawling.

I tried to explain to him that Nagato it's not meant  for that and to let the Nagato guy alone doing his thing.

And he replied that battle was against bots and  damage was all that matter.

I went to see the MM again, he was driving a Bayern.

So I ask them

You got sunk because you rushed a BB with torps, didn't you?

No reply to that, but probably that was what happen to him (to the heart attack guy).

Just had a Pink Bismarck last game go solo in a CV game...

 

Fortunately his idiocy actually helped as the enemy CV wasted time trying to sink him instead of bombing the relevant targets.

Other great thing is when your torpedo reload Kagero goes to B alone to "block" the cap.

 

PS: Today I asked the stock Hipper in game (rank 4) why is he playing that ship. Answer was he is grinding the Hindenburg. Similar happened to me with stock Monarch and Kiev as well.

 

One more ranked season (to get the Flint) and I am done with this cancerous game mode for ever.

Haha. They should change the name to "Grind" or "Speshul". :Smile_teethhappy: As it really has nothing to do with "rank" or skill in other words. Good players will get to rank 1 faster, but every kevin can do it if they put in the time.

I'm not quite sure I understand. What's a minimap? I, in my infinite Bismarck wisdom, head towards where the red ships are. No quarter given; all will be burned by secondary fire. Oh, and sometimes I also use my main guns, but it's annoying to have to click more than just target someone for secondaries.

What red ships? Where are those? They are behind those islands far away, right? Ive tried to get there, but some magical force seems to block me. So im doing a search pattern to get around this ... invisible wall. Havent found an exit yet tho. And this game always interrupts me ffs! Says something like "Defeat". Well d´oh - how im i supposed to win if you stop me from reaching those islands far away...

No, no. They're in front of you. Usually. When the game starts, hit 'W' a couple of times and wait until someone starts shooting at you. That's a red one. Unless it's pink, but either way, hit control, click it, and then just wait for your secondaries to finish the job. If it's pink you might have to click to fire your main guns, since your secondary gunners aren't real men, and therefore avoid pink.

They are still on their way over to the forum. Last rumor: A Tirpitz might have found an exit from the map on Northern Lights - if you actually reverse on A10 with a 45° angle exactly in the corner. He´s going ahead, the rest of "them" are waiting, while he explores.

After all we are talking about Bismark, it deserves a bigger show.
