Too many BBs lately?

Is it just me? Or has there been a significant increase in battleships and decrease in destroyers being played?

 

I personally find it to be frustrating, there's no variety and it seems that all you need to do to do well is bow tank in a german battleship?

 

Just my observation, what do you guys think?

Bismarck Campaign is easier to do in a battleship. So you will see a lot of battleships for a week or more, or least till it dies down

Bismarck Campaign. Unless a majority of the BBs are potaters, take out a DD and torp them.

You should have been around for the Tirpitz release; saw many 12 Tirps vs 12 Tirps battles.

This will blow over when the Bismark thing is done and all the shiny has worn off the Hood.

We need the meme of 'we've become exceedingly good at this'.

While I have played mostly BBs in this campaign, I have also played CA/CLs as well. Wait times were no worse than normal, and I am about halfway through the thing. Nothing out of the ordinary except more Wallet Warriors in HMS Hood! She burns quite nicely, too. Got my 1st Witherer by burning one (among others) down in Belfast! Have had some high-scoring losses and low-scoring wins and vice-versa. Luck of the draw team-wise on weekends still holds. No dream teams! Fun weekend so far!

LOL really? Haven't noticed! Freaking 118 BBs in queue earlier...  It is kinda sad that DD main players aren't out in force harvesting them. Saw 6 lousy DDs in queue at the time I saw that many BBs....

I saw the most DDs today in over a week. Five DDs between both sides. I blame 6.3.

We always get these threads after a new BB line is put out, or a (good/popular) BB premium.

Not that I don't agree BB is played a lot, but it's made worse by the event and new premium Hood.


 

It's always been that way since CBT.  A lot of BBs played, even when DD/CVs where insanely OP, and cruiser fires was even worse than now.

BBs are just popular I guess.

Two words: Bismarck Campaign

 

Agreed.  I don't play BB much, but I pulled out my Grosse Kurfurst for four matches today.  Many of the missions are just easier in BBs like raw damage, and some missions require BBs.

Cruisers and BBs seem to be pretty evenly matched, numbers of each wise. There definitely aint a shortage of skulkin' booshwhackin' DDs. :red_button:

Some missions also require CVs, CAs, or a DD.  And take out the Hood matches, there are as many BB specific missions as CV ones.  I won't disagree that some missions are easier in a BB, but others are easier in CAs or even DDs.

I think they're looking at the queue in the lobby waiting to get into a game.  I'm seeing 1-3 CV, 80-135 BB, 9-15 CA/CL, and 2-10 DD in the lobby.  Games seem to be a bit BB heavy more often than not, but I've only had one game yesterday that had no DD, and many have 4-5DD per side.

 

I think the Bismarck campaign's tasks for 100 BB main gun hits being fairly easy to get, many are pushing that task for completion of the mission.

Most of them are horrible at the game anyways and their aim is even worse. Been having no problems burning them down with my IJN cruisers. More retarded baBBies in the queue please.
