LOL but there are only 15 friendly ships. Surely a DD and a CL both went south as well and were sunk.

You're laboring fruitlessly under the assumption that they're even watching the game they're playing.

But may God and the mods have mercy on your soul if you get tired of it and call someone out for leaching or running in an H44 with CA guns, because you will get the ban and their right to destroy everyone else's enjoyment will continue unabated. 

 

Surrender, mash F like the rest of them, launch some torps from your Monty, and go make some coffee.  When you come back, there will be XP one way or another.

... agree with this

- one of the reasons when game starts and i'm the only bb headed north or south, i'll say something about it to team and then follow the rest -- loss of north/south and game.

- it's also irking to start game and watch ev1 just sit there, totally blocked in and no one moving.  guess most don't realize it's important to move enmasse to set up the lines, and that there issssssss tactical advantage to it.  sitting there the first minte or 2 of the game just hastens a loss.  so why play at all if they gonna do that.

... and yes i realize i'm not the best player on here, but i do enjoy the game.  i can handle people crossing etc, but i can't hadle stupid, and there's a lot of that here too messing with the games recently.

... the entire play style of the games has changed so much in the past year and a half that many of the better players have left the game for these pubescent noobs who have no idea how to even begin to play as a team.  (and yes, because of their play style many of us are forced to put up with garbage games.

Against my better judgement (and probably to rehor's dismay) I decided to play a bit again. After being gone for almost 2 years, I noticed a huge drop off in difficulty. Most rooms were chalk full of FW PCVs that ate me up. Now even with L110s crew, I find that frequently I am either the only PCV or there are only 1 or 2 others. My fighters are dominating and frankly, my skills are not very sharp. In a BB3 I've been doing quite well and even knocked out a couple of BB5s. Also, I've found that I've been able to quite easily AA planes.

So before Rehor flames:

- I played a lot of CV time and both I and my ship were improving but on a good day I was the 3rd best CV in the room. Lately, I've been one of the best and thats sad considering how rusty I am, and that I've been using T3s to avoid the alleged USN T4 bug. Most CVs that I face have inferior planes. Quite a few don't know how to fly them at all, even some of the PCV drivers.

- I flat out sucked at AA, yet playing behind the line I'm shooting down quite a few. My AA skills have NOT improved at all. This is because the CV drivers don't know how to move the planes or change altitude.


- I am not a good BB driver. I've gone no higher then a BB4 at any time. Yet in back to back games I've taken down an L2 and a monty. Both times I was able to drive into range because of misses and pound them into oblivion. Both times, they were unable to adjust guns to get hits due to me closing range. Never would have happened 2 years ago. I suck with a BB yet some games I'm getting 3 BB kills and assorted others in a BB3. Thats a disgrace.

I couldn't even remember the commands. I still haven't remember how to torpedo bomb, turn my escort guns off/on and a few other things, yet somehow I'm doing fairly well. Thats pathetic and it shows that the level of the average NF player has indeed dropped.
