Tier 6, 1 DD, 2 Cruisers, 1 BB and a CV in epicenter. I didn't hang around long enough to see the 2 CV's fight it, but that might be the worst MM I've been in.

As long as both sides had the same ships, I don't see the MM issue.  If there aren't enough ships in que, you get small teams due to the max wait time of 5 min.  That isn't a MM issue.  I've been on 2 vs 2 matches before.

The CV is what caused it. It sat in queue for more than 5 minutes, so when mm found another CV is grabbed every ship available as quick as possible and gave you the tiny game.

Try it at 3:30 AM. I was literally in an epicenter T5 5v5 once where the reds had 2 BBs and three CLs. We had 2 BBs, 2 CLs, and me in my Okhotnik. Guess which team won....

Oh man, why can't I get one of these when I queue up my QE?

I had such battles for a couple of times at night on high tiers. They are rare but may occur if there are no any suitable ships in the queue. 
Once I was on Lexigton and in the end of the battle were left just both of ACs without any fighters or bombers firing each other with secondaries. And everything was in fire.

These battles would be great for the "...and finish in top three XP" requirements. How can you fall out of the top three when there are only two of you? :Smile_teethhappy:

I figured it was the CV's, it was just an awful map for low numbers and CV's. And epicenter is my least favorite map, oceans would have been better, could have maybe stayed away from the planes a little longer, lol

Not quite the same but I got a T1 match where it was just me and one other player. It was equally stressful and entertaining :)

I have been in a 3v3 match 1 dd, 1 bb and top tier CV.  CVs were and Essex and a Taiho.  I was in an NC, don't remember what the DD was.  The enemy Taiho was better than the Essex that game, it came down to me and the Taiho, and I didn't win that battle.

What do you expect when you are playing during the lowest population time? Back in alpha I got a 1 vs 1, my Cleveland vs a CV, talk about the irresistible force vs an immovable object, I just charged the cap and then ate his planes for lunch.

Only been in one of these matches and our team performed perfectly.

We made a plan, stuck together and maintained our push with me (Mogami with defensive fire) taking point.  Best concealment since no DDs.  The other cruiser and I coordinated our defensive fires and the enemy CV was rendered useless.

We won, obviously.  Oddly enough, that's the one game I've played where it really felt like a fleet engagement.  2 CA, 2BB and a CV in under our AA umbrella, I'd do it again anytime.
