Time to bother myself making first post on the forums. Just got deleted from the game in my Bismark in a T10 match by a Midway for the 3rd time after changes. I was in the middle of the fleet both times he dropped AP bombs on me. The first volley took 50% of HP, and the other killed me. Nothing I could do to protect myself. My fleet couldn't protect me. The [edited]Baltimore 2km from me couldn't even take down a single DB before they dropped the bombs.
I am [edited]tired of this ret4rded mechanic where I have to eat 10 torps that drop and active 2km from me giving me no chance to do anything about it. I am [edited]tired of losing 50-70% of health in a single volley by a dumb mechanic that I can do nothing to prevent. I cannot control the behavior of cruisers in randoms, and even when they do what they can, it makes no difference. I can always angle my BB from other BBs, or predict and evade torps, ration DC to deal with fire spam, etc. There is always something I can do better, like improve my positioning, to deal with that, and those things are fairly imposed upon everyone. But no... if you are marked for deletion, you can do nothing but watch your doom approach.
There is absolutely NOTHING I can do about the teleporting Yamato that deletes 50% of my health after shooting point blank into my broadside citadel. NOTHING I can do about the teleporting Gearing that drops a wall of 10-12 torpedoes 1km from my broadside (and good luck "turning away" in the oftentimes 5 seconds notice you have in a GK). NOTHING but watch and rage at this stupid enraging failure of game design.
I don't know the solution, but it certainly does not entail ruining my captain specs to get manual AA just to be able to survive 5 minutes into the game and have a chance at play if I get placed against a midway.
I suspect that DDs that get perma scouted/camped (hello IJN line) by the swarm and end up dying in the smoke to the wall of manual dropped torps feel pretty mad too.
And [edited] having to be uptiered in a bismark against a mostly t10 team with a midway. There are no words that can properly convey my rage and frustration at this.
But I can be pretty certain that unless this changes I will be spending my time and money in something else that allows me to have fun while not being forced to endure completely unfair setups (and a terrible shi7ty matchmaker that doesn't use ELO).
THAT is what I can do. I am letting my displeasure be known, and I will put my money where my mouth is.
