I have this problem now. I’m playing World of Warships. I’m not even bad at it. But nothing exceptional, even in the good games. I mean “I outplayed 3 noobs and sank them all by myself” is not interesting to anyone, even if I assume that the game itself is interesting. What can you gain from this? That bad players just can’t stop chasing a destroyer despite they saw the other idiot exploding by its torpedoes? I doubt if you’re surprised. This is no way unique or otherwise worthy of attention of anyone. I’m playing a video game as intended. That’s the most cliche thing a gamer can do.
All my successful posts were about playing a game as not intended by the devs or at least not as it’s played by the masses. Like raiding in blue gear. Waging war on a 40K nullsec coalition in highsec, then by hunting ratters. Getting super rich in an mobgrinding MMO without killing mobs. Getting into top 100 out of a million FPS players without shooting players. And of course catching rigged games and corrupted devs.
I don’t have anything like that in World of Warships. No “secret winning strategy” that works by not better playing but innovative playing. Nothing I’ve done is worth reading about – short of a quick peek on some funny screenshot.
I like the game and keep playing it. It’s competitive, so I will surely find something. But if I cannot, if I’m limited to “just play the game”, then sooner or later I’ll abandon it for something that has blogging material in it. But for now, let’s hope for the best that some unique strategy will be found. Something that actually works not because of good play, but because of smart play.
Till then, I keep reflecting to other blogs, gaming news and try to cook up good ideas about games in general.
