Bottom tier game, doing few stuff and still number 1 in XP

This is weird. Last night I was quite drunk and accidentally entered into a random battle with my Pensacola (I wanted to play an scenario battle). Tier 7 ship in a tier 9 match... I just decided to do my best and attack. We won the battle, the funniest thing it's that I barely did 41.000 of damage, no kills, and not much else. Imagine my surprise when I was number 1 in XP, even above our tier 9 battleships. I just wonder how this happened so I can do it again... Sober.

Attacking higher tier ships gives better rewards afaik.

That one's easy, you have 2 capture ribbons and 4 defense ribbons, those really contribute to XP. You also kept damaging higher tier ships, which brings more XP with it.

I just found the replay. I didn't exactly capped these zones, it was more assist in capture. Also I didn't did much of spotting.

50k spotting damage, a quarter of your teams total cappoints, some defense points, bottom tier ship shooting at almost only top tier ships, a few shot down planes.

 

All of these things add up to a crapton of XP while it might not seem you do a lot in the game.

5k damage to a DD a tier above you - that's some 1/3 hp of a ship one tier higher.

Also worth noticing is how even the XP gains are within OP's team - 11 ships above 900 XP. The best XP isn't even double of the second worst. Basically, OP is first place because nobody really scored very high, it was all somewhat evenly distributed. It's an example of a match that wasn't carried by a small number of players - instead the victory was acquired by everybody just more-or-less carrying their weight. Thus the top spot didn't require some 2k base XP either.

Great result OP, Not quite Bottom tier, but probably like yourself, played a situational game by staying in the centre ring just about the whole game. Had to hide for the last 45 seconds of the game as last ship left.3ADDE32B-5B52-487D-B770-A3396F22AEFB.thumb.png.00055a078008a1452725650307c693d6.pngB11E2B19-A50E-47A2-9B69-102C35913481.thumb.png.25acd6f5b64864ed2031a18d0b18eef2.png

This. It is no big mystery really, this has been the case since CBT.

So you're a 5CRUB now, eh?

 

Maybe we should division up sometime, but only if you spot for my DD so I can hide in smoke and shoot at the enemy with impunity. Be prepared for lots of whining about radar balance though.

Meh, no surprise with what I've seen.

 

I'm soon expecting a similar thread going:

 

"This is weird. Last night I was quite drunk, started a game of wows but fell asleep out of pure drunkenness. I must have fallen and drooled upon my mouse and keyboard, which must have made me do somethings ingame. I ended up first place, with tripple the xp of the next one."

More about venting disbelief on how little it takes to outperform so many people. Some days you get teams that set the bar so low you can sink first with barely anything done and still outscore half the team.

That actually happened to me a couple of times, but not in WOWS.

Not at all. Just really wondering how come I was in top XP doing so little (at least for what I tought was so little) while battleships and other ships which must have tanked and delivered alot more of damage than me were below.

To be fair it was a one-sided game where no-one really had the chance to do anything.

And this is why  you should win every game.

wp mate :P it shows how bad teams are these days + players on high tier

 

 

I would say, its not only about top tier players but overall playerbase.

Happily serving chat ban after this game... (10 minutes ago) lol.
