And here we see the convoy of battleships making its way to the map border:

There was an attempt to push up a bit:

However their primal instincts drove them to chase the enemy shimakaze into the corner, leading to this result:

I am the ONLY ship on the team to get a kill. It just blows my mind. I'm not expecting unicum level play, hell I just look for people who know their left from their right. But when I see three ships on full HP ten minutes in chasing a Shimakaze to the map border and corner while the team falls around them, I question my reasons for even attempting to play Tier X. Oh well, guess I'll go back to grinding Atlanta games for my USN CL captain. What a night.

It's that way at all tiers. The BB herd instinct, guarding the map edge, chasing after a lone ship that's much faster than BBs are, ignoring the caps, and moving too far away from the bases in standard mode to either capture or defend. :Smile_facepalm:

Those are the only things, besides priority targeting Cruisers, (duh, gotta get that kill!) that I can count on BBs to do.

Ah, yes; the lemming syndrome.  Sadly, it is untreatable.

Though easily recognizable!

The BB herd instinct

When a match begins, if you listen carefully, you can hear the sounds of huge engines starting, steam rushing through the pipes, creaking machinery rotating in ever faster circles. And, above all of that, if you can listen very carefully, you will hear the sound of Battleships going to war, and trumpeting their frightful battlecry ...

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Its not only BBs that do that, cruisers and DDs do that too.
