There are just too many dd in almost every match.  More balance is needed in ship types for matches.  Otherwise why play anything but a dd?  We can call it World of Destroyers!

Not really. Ive been playing ships like Kiev, Tashkent, Leningrad, and Blys almost all day have have only had 2 games where there were more then 4 DDs per team, which is perfectly balanced. But maybe thats just my MM, idk about urs

Low tiers are saturated with DDs because of people playing the German ships, and other people going out in Clemsons to club them.

If you're playing low-tier (2/3) you can only look forward to that for the next couple weeks until people move on.

Exactly. Why are people so dumb? Like seriously, before you go rambling about something, think things through logically a bit more.

I know, isn't it awesome! As I'm currently alternating between Udaloy, Kiev, Leningrad and Bly, I'm sure I'm part of the problem.

In terms of historical accuracy and the proportion of DDs in a nation's fleet in comparison to other classes, there are actually not enough destroyers in a match.:popcorn:

My recent (last couple weeks) experience in high tiers has been 5 dds per team more often than I like.

I, for one, dont mind a game with lots off DDs. Just free XP and credit farms for my VMF DDs. Shaving off 90% of the HP of one or two enemy DDs is easy and nets pretty good profit gains from the match regardless of the outcome

Not so much fun grinding my stock iowa although my ibuki does not mind so much.

I honestly HAVEN'T been taking out my 16 point Clemson. Just not as enjoyable for me. Gonna wait till things settle down.

Too many DD in matches? You mean there is an abundance of food to feed your Tier 3 and 4 CL? :trollface:

Please send a check to WG with a note to never, ever, add any content.  Change is bad.  Problem solved.

I'm part of the problem. 

 

I got a Gremy, Anshan, Blys and Lo Yang out of the present boxes.  That's T5, 6, 7 and 8.  When I want to relax and just watch the world burn, I have Khabarovsk that never disappoints. So T10 is covered too.

 

Now I also got a mess of premium cruisers, but those are not nearly as fun.  Though I will give the MK points for being a T8 Buddy.  The problem is they are not great against DDs for the most part, and they absolutely suck against BB.  That means you're either in a BB, or a DD.  

 

Other than the pathetic KM DDs they are as close to immune to BB shells as possible.  Go on Mr Yamato, tell me how many overpens it will take you to chew though 27k health. 18 huh?  Given your 2% hit rate it should only take you 60 minutes or so to kill a Khabarovsk.  Vs about 3 minutes to burn to the waterline.

 

You don't like the number of DDs?  Nerf BB AP against CAs.  Then you'll see more CA and less DD.  I want CA to be good, I really do, but right now most of them are just not there.  Too situational, too weak, or just boring.

The US built 8 battleships, 49 cruisers, and 349 DDs during WW2. 

 

I'm not saying players should play anything but what they like, but DDs are underrepresented in game.

And 151 aircraft carriers.

 

50 of which were Casablanca class carriers that could be cranked out 3 months or less, with an air wing.  They weren't intended for major fleet action, more floating air bases to support marines so that fleet CVs could hunt down the remaining IJN ships and they were used for convoy duty.  It takes a relatively suicidal submarine commander to attack a convoy escorted by even a relatively small and vulnerable aircraft carrier.  Aircraft > submarine every time.

 

Edit: Excluding DDs the IJN had 80 ships, though not ever that many at once.  Which means that for every ship that the IJN ever had, the USN built during wartime 5 DDs, 2 CVs, 65% of a cruiser  and 20% of a battleship.  So every WW1 era cruiser or BB had to contend with that amount of tonnage in a fight.  Bearing in mind that those were WW2 era USN ships, Fletchers for the DDs for instance.  None of the IJN DDs were even close to the Fletchers.

While I dislike more than 3 maybe 4 DDs per match it is what we have to deal with. WG knows of the player base dislike for more than 4 per match as we see these threads far too often. What I do find humorous are these ppl that think this is a historically accurate game, far from it or they would have left Ocean map and made it more common not to have basically remove it from the game.

They only built 25 fleet carriers or so, rest were CVEs.

The real issue is having too many BBs in every match...
