Obviously most of the players are trying out the new BB line, so how about forcing everyone to wait upwards of 5 min for a handful of cruisers and DDs, why not simply let the BBs brawl it out? Itd get the ques shortened and things will settle down in a couple weeks anyway.

So... completely lock out a large part of the playerbase simply because they don't want to play battleships?

It would involve an update. This would take a while, about a week or two. You can duke it out in Co-op with all bb's quite easily though.

I have been waiting for two to three minutes which isn't bad at all. People these days have no patience.

I've only gotten instabattles with my cruisers and destroyers. This is awesome.

There are limits on the number of BB's you can have in a match?

Must have happened since Tirp was released; there were certainly no limits on BB's then; had 12 BB to 12 BB matches.

Uuuhhh its not 'locking them out' its 'letting the people play what they want'.  While keeping something of a lid on having massive DD infestations of the game.

Seems to be much different as theres on average 70+BBs on tap yet we are still seeing matches with 3,4,5 DDs aside. Typical nonsense DD infestation.

When Tirp was released there were ques with 300+ BB's in them, and many matches with 12 BB's per side. It is amusing to find you complaining about 3, 4, or 5 DD's in a post YOU STARTED about allowing unlimited BB's per game. How delightfully ironic!

It does, however, support my claim that the DD is much stronger and more feared than the BB (and hence why most good players prefer DD play); does anyone fear, or complain, about 5 BB's in a game? No? Must not be dangerous then or someone would whine!

Whoops, apologies. I heavily misread your post and thought you meant locking DDs and cruisers out completely.

I can see wanting to be a DD in a sea of BBs, not sure a cruiser would be as happy. Get spotted and it would be like Finding Nemo with all the gulls "Mine-Mine-Mine-Mine...."

Just stay back and burn the dumb bastards. They're too busy shooting at all the shiny new battlesheeps.

Leave it to Lert to demonstrate what the seal clubbing stat padders are up to.

No worries; since WG doesn't release how MM actually works (because it would mean admitting that MM is very regularly rigged), it'd be an easy mistake to make.

What... How? I always takes at least 10 seconds for me, and sometimes I'm not even guaranteed a battle with that many RN BBs.

All the way over here in Oklahoma, I can hear the sound of a stalking cat laughing maniacally as he hits 'battle' in his destroyer or cruiser...

Ok, ok, I might've exaggerated a little bit.

Which merely proves the lack of skill required for either class.

Cruisers take a lot of skill, especially in a ocean full of BBs. You don't get punished for showing your side, you get deleted. DDs generally have it a bit easier with a target rich environment and way better concealment than their prey but they also have the problem of insta-deletion if spotted. I hear Nelson has ridiculous HE.

Not really no. Most of them, aside of the Brits, simply hide in smoke and spam HE for nonsensical amounts of damage.

But the non-Brit cruisers have to rely on somebody else to provide the smoke. Except in ranked where everyone works for the team, a cruiser doesn't always have a convenient, cooperative DD around. Especially since WG loves making the IJN DDs choose between smoke and TRB. The new smoke nerfs will make smoking for the team less valuable (not useless, just less). If you only have one DD and one CA/CL on a team, you better be divisioned or you won't be doing much firing.

This from a professional statpadder that spams fire to pad stats and farm kills/damage certainly not earned by skill.  As usual, more [edited] from someone not wanting the XP pinatas touched.

Yer Right, I have played a lot with you. You are a whiner, a pro statpadder, and one of the worst persons Ive ever had the misfortune of being in the same clan with; a key reason why i left ARP. Hence why I stand by what I said.

You are, in fact, cold hard proof for the adage - "The higher the stats, the worse the player".
