Wish i had this.
Really dislike the larger games, rather wish they limited to a max of 7 ships per battle.

I really like Ranked, mainly due to the team size.

If you play Tier 1 in the wee-hours of the morning (I'm US central time), like between 2 hours before server reset (2am Central) to 1 hour after (5am Central), there's a great possibility of a number of 1v1 matches. Since the maps are small, no one will get lost, and, being Tier 1, it's just gunboat v gunboat without all the kerfluffles.

Yeah I've had a few one-on-one matches in the wee hours

So how long did your battle last with a 3v3? Unfortunately, this can happen when the number of players online is low. Good luck and hope it went well especially since your team won.

When I do play Random, I love these small games.

Yeah I would enjoy that more as well, it is more fun at least for me.

It was pretty short. One of our DDs went and capped C while the other DD and myself went to B and fought the other team. I took most of the hitpoints off them but it was the DD's torpedoes that finally sank them. He had all the kills, LOL.

I had a tier 1 one versus one Japan-Russia battle when I first started. It took most of the game for us to work out the controls and find each other. I learned how to aim faster and won.

Seems like a number of people, like myself, do like the smaller teams. So why don't the Devs have it set up like this I wonder?
I mean wouldn't that also go a long way to prevent all the current up tiering people have too (T8's always with T10's for example)?

Simple solution for simple problems.

7v7 made to order.  Better yet, no CVs.

Problem is it really magnifies the variations in player quality (unicum vs potato) in a single ship. Even more-so for an AFK. Or how about a division of 2 (or 3!) very good players? They win 90% of the time. Each ship is a bigger percentage of your team with less chance to balance a strong player in one ship with either another strong player or a number of better than average players on the other team. You would get even more steam-roll stomps than you do now.

I'd personally be fine with this.
If i am out played, so be it.
I do get annoyed by deaths from "loleveryone shoot the DD".

I had one game where i was literally targeted by every single member from the opposing team. I lived longer then i thought, around 80 seconds.
The result was as expected. As i've said in other threads, I've run into issues where non smokeed, and in range ships including BB dont render until they are right on top of me.
Still my fault as they were on the mini-map. But a single radar was all it took to end my surprises. Amusingly i was not even remotely the closest ship to the enemy.

I've had a T10 Battle with just 1 CV and 1 BB each team. That was not a fun match.

Smallest I had was 2v2. The enemy had a Essex and a PE and our team was a Tahio and me on a Tashkent. Match ended quickly: Tahio got his planes in position first, the PE sailed into the middle cap but he didn’t know that I waited outside, he eat my torps and then I capped and burn down the Essex while the CV kept the enemy CV busy.

People are always so anxious to hurry and get the next ship, that low tiers can be quickly abandoned. Then, as the bulk of the server population goes to bed, it leaves very few baby seals and seal clubbers available to make matches with.

I played a few games like this a few weeks ago, when I started the Pan Asian grind. They were really fun matches, surprisingly enough. I'm usually the one saying 'I wish battles were 50 versus 50.' :cap_rambo:

Just another example of how broken the MM is. Before we go to smaller battles I like to see the myriad of serious flaws in the MM fixed.

I had a 5 v 5 game in my Taiho. These games don't do much for me in terms of damage but I at least know the opposing CV was dumb enough to wait longer than 3 minutes. Which means he isn't very good at playing CV either.
