Curious if I'm the only one that noticed more games where one team has more BBs and more DDs.   I've been on both sides of this arrangement.

Guess which team won every time?

That is working as intended. The MM will allow a difference of one for each of BB's, cruisers, and DD's.

Naturally...   team with less cruisers always wins.

I hit this concern quite often:

I haven't noticed anything different.  Different number of battleships, cruisers, and destroyers has been pretty common for me for as long as I can remember.

I only find this to be an issue when it is epicenter and the DD's are not balanced.

A team with the extra DDs also has the advantage in a "domination" match.

Not to the same extent as long as there is at least one DD per cap.

Seems like confirmation bias more than anything. Unbalanced numbers of different ship classes is common not rare.

That has not been my experience at all.

Actually the weird thing(s) this weekend was this:

shot-18_04.08_01_00.05-0675.thumb.jpg.e27741dc9e7d783cdc20d27d4c6104bc.jpg

Only 7 to a side and no dd's. Only 1 CA in the match.

The other weird thing was this: Look at the mini map.

The MM spawned heavy at C and 3 ships at A. for both sides.

A team with 1 extra potato BB will never beat a team with 1 extra good cruiser or DD, unless another one in the BB team is good enough to carry the game.

To answer your question no, I didn't felt any differences in MM. I still get potato team mate and sometime good division . Shipwise I still see some team with Radar advantage when it's heavily DD focus and another team with AA advantage when there is a carrier

Collect the numbers and see whether you are suffering from confirmation bias. You will, after you have 150 games in which the number of DDs differs by 1, find that there is no meaningful difference in who wins, except for games in which one side has a DD and the other does not.

Nope MM is still F'd Working as intended.

If everyone is getting rammed, up the (old you know what ) then MM may not be fair, but at least it is balanced, in no ones favour :Smile_teethhappy:

Wait until Asashio is released, and your team gets a mediocre player in one, and one less DD
