1st mission has 50 main battery hits as a task, but requires a BB.

Fortunately,most of them were on the enemy teams last night:)

 

​You must have been facing my teams. Almost every team I was on tried to lemming-train up the side of the map to the red base and left ours completely undefended. The results were ... predictable. Took the whole night to get two wins and survive them both. It felt like a weekend. :( The queue times were longer than normal (too many BBs in the queue) but by MMO standards they were miniscule. I found out that I do like Hood. It plays like Scharnhorst, but faster and with no torpedoes. The turret rotation buff makes it pleasant to operate.

That was simple. Took the Alabama out and came back with 46 hits, 2 citadels hits, 105854 dmg, 4 sunk (2 BBs and 2 CAs), 4627 xp and 434534 payout. Next up was Colorado to finish that op.

Yeah, when the mission require a cruiser to spot, it means you use the Perth and play her like a dd.

Yeah I've been running Warspite instead of Hood.  With the turret-traverse buff and lower tier, Warspite is the superior ship IMO.

Which is strange for me.  Normally I buy every premium BB that comes out.  Just not excited about Hood for some reason.  Maybe Mutsu left a bad taste in my mouth.

By no means record BB queues!  I remember the day the German battleships came out, I was in my Nassau in a queue of 400 battleships.

 

Good old days :)

So far, I'm quite content with the Hood. As a bonus, WG gave me 2 captains for the Hood with 12 points. Might actually get the Warspite now that its turret traverse was buffed and place the 2nd captain in it :)

I took the Kamikaze out last night, as did many others as the BBs in queue hit 99. Without many cruisers to screen them, those poor battleships were eating torps and playing torpedo beats all night long. Super fun though. Best moment was when the only two players left were CV's...who were out of planes..and ours tried to ram the other for the win.. Slow motion hilarity.

With all these BBs saturating every match... all those Clouds of smoke and high RoF HE barrages MUST be part of my imagination.

I have Hood and have been the only Hood in battles. Lots of other BB's trying to sink me, to no avail. Instead of the Aiming mod, use the rudder shift mod and turret traverse upgrade mod. I still turn slow but not as bad as stock, plus my turrets swing pretty quick, faster than Cleveland's. Killed a couple of DD's that thought they were going to torp me. I like Hood, have Warspite but haven't play her since the buff.

Why all the Bismarcks?  Do they all think they are going to try and repeat history by sinking Hoods?

My experience was hitting over 63k damage in the Hood during a match on Neighbors. Many tried to take me out...and lost. You play it like a CA/CL ship sneaking around like a ninja, not as a BB in open water.

 

But I lost the match since I couldn't hold the caps we had, since 6 teammates got tunnel vision and chased after one Nagato BB towards the edge of the map. Yep, you heard me. It just makes you want to grab IKE and kick the baby. They all chase after that one BB ship running away that left me by myself againsts the rest of the enemy team. I survived, but I had to pull out in order to not get overwhelmed. :amazed:

 

Seems to be the meta with the large BB queue, everyone using them to complete damage amount missions. A lot of players are focusing around Tier 7, so Tier 5-6 queues tend to get up-tiered a lot due to the large population at T7 waiting to battle. Objectives is completely ignored, including teamwork communication - larger than before. On top of that, everyone is ignoring cruisers and destroyers that is beyond the normal. They're focusing on other battleships or try sniping a carrier, all due to get those high damage numbers. Which leaves DDs open to capture and contest capture points, regardless of the player's skill level.

 

Last night was my worst run in months and only won 1 game despite being in the top score for the team. I just called it a night, it was too frustrating to deal with. Now that I've experience this, will be staying in divisions until the campaign is over.

Lol exactly. I wonder if WG knew the shenanigans they would cause by including tasks like this!

Already got the Bismarck camouflage (RNG blessed almost every crate, and only needed 1 duplicate), and playing around with it has increased how much focus I get from the red team, including jokes about needing to sink the undead Bismarck again.

My massive list of suggestions (Updated 05/17/2016).  Feel free to constructively debate and discuss.

Remember remember the 17th of September, the Tirpitz; which cost a lot.  Some say it's a fortune, and that it's extortion; but the price will never be forgot.

So are you saying we aren't seeing huge disparity in MM with class numbers in Q looking similar to... CV: 5 BB: 72 CA: 6 DD: 5? Is that also our imagination?

WG created the tasks.....if there is a flood of a certain class then it was a small lack of foresight...
