I played for a couple years and got several lines to T10.  I stopped playing because of British BBs setting things on fire.  I was mainly a BB player myself, but I really liked playing aggressively, utilizing map awareness and armor angling to gradually advance on opponents.  However, I found that both aggressive and passive play against British BBs was punished severely.  Even as someone who liked to talent defensively with a mind toward damage control and prevention, it was overwhelming.

 

Has any of this been addressed since I quit?  What's the current meta-like?

As a BB main myself, I can tell you that I adjusted all my BB captains to have fire prevention and corresponding upgrades to mitigate the potential fire damage.  It also helps that British BBs are not quite as common as other nations.

I’ve found that British BBs have really evolved to be great tools for punishing bow campers.  We’re seeing less as a result.   It’s not completely gone of course, but it has been dialed down somewhat.

I’m finding that I’m no longer the only aggressive BB player.

If your version of “aggressive” is pointing towards the enemy and advancing at 12kts or less, then no, it hasn’t been “fixed” thank god.

My definition of aggressive is coming at as fast and steep an angle as I can get away with, but more often means kinda curving in and making course adjustments as needed.

The only way to know for sure is to get in a few battles. The game IMHO hasn't changed but I play everyday. With your LOA you will see any and all changes in just a few games.

Ah, yeah, I'd read something about German BBs being dead in the water if there's a carrier.
