Co-Op is just Humans vs Bots.. Its a much less aggressive playstyle, matches are shorter. The bots can get to be a bit predictable.. Rewards seems to average about 1/3 of a Random/Ranked battle, but also takes about 1/3 the time.That's sort of how I am. Path of Exile is "free" but you can buy stash slots and stuff. I probably have $300 tied up into the game, and its given me years of entertainment so I'm cool with it. If I have to toss $20 here and there, so be it.
The co-op sounds neat. Maybe I'll try that then. Didn't even know there was a co-op side of the game.
Subs are not nearly as bad as CVs. Cvs break every aspect of the game.
It varies from Tier to Tier... Honestly Tier V is a sweet spot for fun, functionality, and difficulty.Man this is fun. Been doing the co-op. I bought a one month premium.
Now, do these battles get more difficult? Because I was ROCKING the map at first, now I'm getting hammered. Perhaps I'm getting too cocky though. Torpedos are wrecking me.

All still depends on what boats you use and your loadout strategy.
Torps never stop being a pain in the ass at any tier.
Join a decent clan as soon as you can. Their clan perks can really add up when you are new.
What Nation are you going to start grinding your tech tree in?
Im about 80% done with all USA ships, but the last few are going to long hauls.. I have up to Tier V on all the tech trees because certain seasonal battles have a V minimum but spreading them to all nations gives you a lot of opportunity to earn a LOT more credits/tokens/whatever they are peddling at the time. Dont be afread to read into the history either. Im not a naval buff, but ive enjoyed some of the backstories on the boats and they put a decent amount of effort into posting new stuff nearly every day.
If you want a clan invite, let me know..
VERY casual, no requirements in the one im in. Can have them send you an invite.

Something to keep in mind, your WarGaming account is semi-specific to the platform.. its either STEAM or anything else.
Steam gets the best/most loot drops I think.
Heres some stuff to get you started.
These links/codes were mostly for BlackFriday, but some may still be active.
Man I'm like the first to die in every round now. I think I'm waaaaay to offensive. I keep all ships to full speed and charge in. I need to kick back more I think.
yea, I've read about that before. I'll try those eventually, but I'm too hooked on those pve skirmishes right now, hahathe whole game is super passive anymore when there is a sub(s) and/or cv(s) in the round. Should have got Atlanta B but didn't.
Westwood, once you get to T6 you can do the operations which I feel give you better rewards that co-op win or lose. they do take a lot longer to play though.
Unfortunately, you missed the peak of the game by years and it's a finely tuned cash cow that has chucked any semblance of balance right out the fucking window.Made the mistake on doing randoms.
I'm in last place and haven't won a single game.
I'm now stuck in the loop of not wanting to leave until I at least live through a game.
Its going to be a long night.
man I was getting so pissed too. but I do have a larger increase in XP regardless. I just charge in, die in two minutes, hop onto another ship, and just rotate them out.Unfortunately, you missed the peak of the game by years and it's a finely tuned cash cow that has chucked any semblance of balance right out the fucking window.
Undo the mistake and stick to co-op. Nearly none of the stress of randoms while still having a sliver of what makes or made the game fun.
The secret is Divisionsman I was getting so pissed too. but I do have a larger increase in XP regardless. I just charge in, die in two minutes, hop onto another ship, and just rotate them out.
Dad was a sub tech and his uncle is Master Chief and Master Diver so I want to get to subs because I think they're awesome. It was a bit slow going though. But yea, waaaaay more fun in the co-op. I'm doing the randoms for the XP.
I can't really put my finger on it either. I just get wasted every round. I'd try charging in, now I'm kicking back, and still I get destroyed.
dude I get so pissed at the pvp. that's really any game now though.Huh, was unaware this game had pve. Neat looking game, tried it for a bit, but I really only have patience for 1 pvp mmo and that's currently war thunder gf.
Might have to check that out.
I need more practice against people. I get nuked so easily. I get too aggressive and get wiped.
I start off like that, then once I start firing, I slam it into gear and chase people down. I have to learn to back off and seek cover. I get so amped up, I just want to barge in and start shotgunning people.this game right now is all about very slow play. It is one of things that I hate about it and why I like playing DDs. If you are playing cruisers and at T5 expect to die quickly. T5 cruisers melt. Another reason why I hate the +2/-2 match making in these games. I don't think PvP gets any easier unless you are just a very good player. The subs and especially the CVs make it so much harder to learn to play because the CV break every aspect of the game.
Try to keep yourself at almost max gun range from others and just learn to shoot. expand your mini map to be pretty large and try to just position yourself in a way that you aren't broadside on to other ships. Shoot and scoot.
