Missouri, why am I so bad?

So yesterday I had a game on Ocean, which I only noticed once I couldn't find any land features.

I hear a lot of bad stuff about camping in a BB, but when I play missouri I try to play agressively and try to make use of radar.

 

However, despite trying to teamplay I sometimes get results like this one. Would anyone be so kind as to watch my replay and tell me what I do wrong here?

At the beginning I tried to push C and radar their DD, which worked. I did very little damage even though I tried hitting stuff, but gotten over 1m potential damage and even though my damage done is a paltry 15k or so, almost half of it is vs non-BB combatants.

I managed to survive till the end and gotten that medal for surviving 120% of my hitpoints, but despite my efforts I ended in last place, getting a remark about camping the edge of the map in a BB by the person ending in second last place right before the game was won, so that might have something to do with it? I also included some screenshots from some of the highlightes of that particular game.

 

Anyway, I want to improve my gameplay and I think this game should provide plenty of my mistakes to see, so there should be plenty I can improve :Smile_great:

I never quite got the hang on missouri, but lately it's been getting worse even though I gotten over 100 games in missouri already. There's basically no excuse except I must be doing something horribly wrong here or I wouldn't get results like this, right?

I do find this game hillarious in some way, but of course I'd want to be able to get better results then this :Smile_hiding:

i see u show broadside and the enemy hit u so hard, but in last days i feel missouri no real good like the first times i play this ship, accuracy is still good but sometimes i hit real low damage a full broadside enemy ships, maybe is penetration  idk, alsace look better atm.

One of the main reasons is a poor positioning sense in your ship, you are relatively newish to bbs, u have 2 t8s tech tree wise, maybe spend less free xp on ships and start grinding a bit, after a few thousand games it all becomes more natural.

You shoot badly.

Which might have a lot to do with Wargaming breaking the dispersion upgrade (Artillery Plotting Room Modification 2)  in the latest patch, it currently seems to add more dispersion instead of buffing the main guns.

Try replacing it with the reload module, which will cost you millions in silver and a little gold, or wait till they maybe fix it, which they told Flamu they're looking into.

15k damage on a Tier IX ship is not because of a dispersion problem. Kawachi has much worse dispersion and I usually do much more damage in her.

I feel that your position, angle and aiming need more practice. Add some aggressive gameplay, but don't go for suicide line.

i like the fact you did not try to bow tank , missouri is best on the move with its 33 knots. Much more fun to play it that way
