Ranked Captain patterns

I don't have time to play a lot of ranked.. but still get the feeling that you can see what to expect from the initial lineup. Feel free to disagree, add to or ignore:

 

Tirpitz Captains

  • can't reliably damage anything
  •  think they can yolo to torp enemy bbs but instead die horribly whithout doing anything useful

Bismarck Captains

  • drive a big health pool the enemy has to farm down
  •  think that using secondary batteries is a useful thing in ranked
  •  get torped way to often for a ship with hydro

Benson Captains

  • believe that they have to rush the enemy as fast as possible
  • if they survive the initial dd slaughter they will spend the rest of the game camping their smoke in a place no one else can use it

Lo Yang Captains

  •  think their hydro is a "I win" button
  • die horribly if the enemy uses radar, hydro and/or skill to outplay them

Chapayev Captains

  •  think that going within 11.7km of the enemy in an unarmored cruiser is a good idea
  • die horribly if the enemy has good aim (NC/Amagi) or sacrificed to RNGesus (Bismarck/Tirpitz)

Hipper Captains 

  • need their heads examined

Kutuzov Captains

  • think that being 18km away from the battle can help the team

Kagero Captains

  • see Hipper Captains

Atago Captains

  • usually have full health at the end of the battle
  • .. even if losing

Akazuki Captains

  • cheated and drive a cruiser with DD matchmaking
  • .. some of them don't even know it

NC Captains

  • think that being bow in at 18km is a great place to help the team
  • believe that playing alone is far better than trying to follow cruisers and dds

Id like to add from my ranked game yesterday:

Tirpitz with HP Perk AND RPF! SHOOTING HE!!!

 

Basicly any Cruiser:

Go out full broadside against the enemy fleet and die within seconds (even an Edinburgh managed it with smoke...)

 

Basicly any BB:

U have kill lead and Cap lead: CHAAAARGE :Smile_izmena:

You can mix and match those points as you see fit as any of them fits any captain.

 

The issue in ranked is, that players don't know when to push and when to play defensive.

Too aggressive play is not necessary when you have a cap or points lead, as in such a case you want to preserve the lead.

Yet windowlickers have to push and throw games in a moronic attmpt to get kills.

 

The opposite is also annoying as Edited: passive gameplay from the start.

In games like these, i usually play very aggressive to counter the passive style of my team (hiding instead of contesting caps).

Funnily enough, my aggressive style was heavily critized by Flamu in his ranked commentary (justifyibly so i might add as our opponents were too keen to throw the game, but that wasn't clear at the start and my team played way too passive in the beginning).

 

I play very aggressive in randoms, as it suits my style and is very fun.

In ranked, i try to tone it down by  afair margin, play the objectives and make plays only when the situation requires it, not to chase kills or damage. It'd be prefectly fine for me to end the entire season with 0 points of damage done as long as i get the wins.

You forgot:

Kiev Captains:

  • Think they're good a capping because fast.
  • Think they're in destroyers.

Ognevoi Captains:

  • See Kiev Captains.

Hsien Yang Captains:

  • Don't understand the difference between DWT and normal torpedoes.
  • Think their radar is the best thing about the ship.
  • ...As a result think they're good at capping.

Lexis... half no wait 75% are dumb, I met one in my team who was good but thats only 1... Shoukaku is more in common I presume but Ive only played like 3? battles in Ranked with Shoukaku so im not too sure. Carriers are anyways all to rare now cause of that BB Mission Great work WG 10/10 Superb....

but Lexi AP bombs hurt the Hipper class?

Got nothing on Amagi Captains.. they seem to be rather unobtrusive. And I haven't seen any Kidds since Christmas.. I would guess they all switched to Lo Yang.

Basically any DD except Lo Yang, when there is a Lo Yang on the enemy team within 5.4km:

• smoke up because spotted

 

had this happen last week; accidently encountered all 3 enemy DDs, 2 of them smoked, all 3 sat in that smoke .. got closer, pop hydro, all but 1 got sunk (managed to get out of Hydro range at very low health)

 

 

:edit:

New Orleans is also missing. That is that big floating ciadel with that nice 9,0 km gimmick most DD captains seem not to know.  :Smile_teethhappy:

 

Playing CAs and BBs myself I often encounter cruiser captains who are very confident that I would not hit their broadside...

 

Edit: Bismarck is in fact a very mediocre damage dealer. I get much better results with NorCa.

Later in the game, I will do that too, if there is a chance that their hydro is on cooldown. Works more often than one would think... 

 

Also that allows you to shoot and still disengage after 5.4.

 

The only real dumb thing is when people just STOP in their smoke and sit there spotted.

Was thinking about the initial cap rush, but definately viable later in the game. I've been on the receiving end of it too, though. Extremely annoying.

I've literally seen enemy Lo Yang do just that when he realized both our Lo Yang and me (in Akizuki) went to one cap (the same as he did) instead of splitting like their DDs did.

It was really nice of him to provide the smoke cloud that made us invisible to his teammates the moment he died :Smile_trollface:
